    Movie Moan 2015: Episode 3 - A Little Ronery

    Phil's on his own this week.  Please join him so he doesn't get lonely...

    Classic Movie Moan
    Phil thought that his film universe would stay in harmony but that depends on certain factors, including the fact that he will always enjoy a movie made by the Wachowski's, however divisive it may be.  That is no longer the case and Phil is here to ramble for 40 god damn minutes and tell you why 'Jupiter Ascending' really is the worst film they've ever made (5:38).

    Marveling At The Future
    Spencer Perry and Phil Gee are a little late to the party on that trailer for Josh Trank's 'The Fantastic Four', but that doesn't mean our opinion doesn't count right (47:44)?  After that, we delve into the realm of R rated comic book properties, and whether they need to be R rated films in order to succeed as quality pieces of entertainment.  We ask the question 'what do you do with The Punisher?' (52:56), and the equally probing 'does Deadpool have to be R rated?' (1:15:12)

    Cinematic Happy Comfort Food

    The awesome Capt. Ed Hocken joins Phil to talk about one of the films he always pulls off the DVD shelf to fill that cinema sweet spot; 'L.A Confidential' from 1997 (1:30:06).

    Movie Moan 2015: Episode 2 - For Shame Oscars, For Shame!

    Phil thought he couldn't hate the Academy Awards more than he already does but when you snub the Roger Ebert movie, you go too far (40:06). 

    So as well as a rant for the ages from the English gentleman on that subject, tonight we also join Jamie Williams, special guest from last week Matt Thompson, and Mr Shawn Robbins, writer and editor for Box Office.com to discuss...

    Classic Movie Moan
    In a piece of news which went out of date the day after we recorded it, Jamie pitches that 'Mission Impossible 5' will move from December to January in order to get some of that 'American Sniper money (8:04).  Phil has literally just come back from 'Kingsman: The Secret Service' and will not spoil any of it, but will tell you why it's not worth counting down the days for (13:09).  But Phil and Shawn do implore you to get out to whatever theatre is playing 'Whiplash' and make sure to see it with a collective audience.  This is a film which deserves it  (18:54).  Finally, right before it opens, we predict just how well is '50 Shades Of Grey' is going to do at the box office (27:37).

    Marveling At The Future
    Spencer Perry and Phil Gee return to share their hopes and dreams for two upcoming comic book movies.  Firstly, Spencer educates Phil on just why WB making 'Suicide Squad' is so important and smart (58:40).  Then, Phil pitches to you on who the logical choice to direct 'Thor: Ragnarok' is (1:12:07).

    Memo To The Executives
    Matt Thompson and Phil Gee take a look at the potential movie franchise of tomorrow - the film adaptation of the video game franchise 'Assassin's Creed'.  We try and figure out whether it will actually work as even a decent film, using one of the latest drafts of the actual script as a roadmap (1:27:39).

    Movie Moan 2015: Episode 1 - Once Upon A Beginning

    IT IS ACCOMPLISHED!

    We would like to extend a huge and warm hug of a welcome to the brand new, rebooted, Movie Moan podcast, available to you as a full two hour high definition show on Youtube, as an MP3 on Soundcloud, and as separate videos on our Youtube channel for the separate segments. Watch or listen to it any way you like.

    Movie Moan 2015 is broken down into three individual sections. On our first episode:

    Classic Movie Moan
    Join Phil Gee, Jamie Williams, and Matt Thompson as we review 'American Sniper' (11:42) & 'The Theory Of Everything' (17:27). We debate why Phil and Jamie are afraid that the next James Bond film 'Spectre' is going to blow, and Matt (having read the latest script) tries to convince us it won't (26:42 - light spoilers). But Matt certainly won't try to convince you that 'The Fantastic Four' is going to be any good and tells you what The Thing is really going to look like (9:25).

    Marveling At The Future
    Join Spencer Perry and Phil Gee for our regular section devoted to the world of comic book adaptation media as we review the first two episodes of 'Agent Carter' (63:30, bemoan the trailer for 'Ant-Man' while still believing in its potential (88:48), and tell you of our hopes and dreams for the Netflix 'Daredevil' show (80:55).

    Cinematic Comfort Food
    Matt Thompson once again joins Phil to discuss why the film that made him want to make movies, that opened up the joy of cinema to him, the film that he always grabs off the shelf when he needs cheering up.......is John Carpenter's 'Halloween' (1978) (103:33).

    Movie Moan - The Plagues Were Good

    Of course we came back!

    Join Phil and Jamie, and the regular Movie Moan family of Edward Douglas, Spencer Perry, Matt Thompson, Lou Sytsma, and Randall Maynard as we finish what we started two years ago and complete our own trilogy of reviews for 'The Hobbit: The Battle Of The Five Armies: An Alfred Story'.

    Trust me folks, once you've seen the film you will be wondering how as seemingly insignificant a character as Stephen Fry's comedy sidekick can become one of the major supporting players in 'the defining chapter of the Middle Earth legend.  But it happens.

    And while you're wondering that, you may also ponder why the special effects in 'Exodus: Gods & Kings' could be compared to, at best, the crocodile in 'Lake Placid'.  Apparently, the plagues are worth watching but not much else is in that film.

    We spend a little time talking about the next big budget fantasy film out of the gate; 'Warcraft', and what it's chances are of repeating the same mistakes as the Hobbit trilogy.

    We discuss the recent trailers for 'Mad Max: Fury Road', 'Jurassic World', Star Wars: The Force Awakens', 'Inside Out', and 'Terminator: Genysis'.  We get a little carried away ranting about that last one.

    And then we clean house and confess our sins for reading anything to do with the Sony Hack and helping to do the dirty work of criminals.

    But to end the show on a positive note, we do have some exciting news to share with you about our plans for 2015.  We hope you will continue to listen and support us.....

    ....because I SWEAR next year's shows will be a lot better.

    Merry Christmas!

    Movie Moan's Summer 2014 Box Office Predictions - The Results

    Well.......that went well!

    It's time to join Phil Gee, Jamie Williams, Shawn Robbins of BoxOffice.com, and Ed Douglas of ComingSoon.net as they sift through the rubble of their box office predictions for Summer 2014's biggest movies and find out who got the least wrong.

    I would defy anyone to have predicted how the last four months have played out. This was the summer where up became down, left became right, and August became, no longer a dumping ground for garbage that nobody will see, but rather home to two of the year's biggest hits.

    But while the hosts of this show might not have done that well, just maybe you folks at home did. If you posted your own predictions on our site then keep on listening because your scores have been tallied and a Web Winner will be announced at the end of the show.

    We'll be back for the Winter game very soon. In the meantime, please leave your sympathy comments for me just below. You didn't think I was gonna win did you?
