    Movie Moan - Those Were The Days (with the old Movie Moan gang)

    Oh, it's like they never left.

    This week we pay homage to the way things used to be on this show when Phil Gee and Jamie Williams were joined every week by their faithful companions Captain Ed Hocken of Police Squad and the wise and sage Mr Lou Sytsma. You knew where you were then. It wouldn't be more than a minute after saying hello before you were discussing Law & Order and swapping Youtube links.

    After months, maybe even years away, we reunited this week for a special show to do all that again but to let you hear it. So join us this week for an uncut glimpse into what a regular two hour conversation between these four guys sound like.

    Amidst all the chaos are such topics as Phil's review of 'Robocop' (2014), Jamie's review of 'The Lego Movie', the TV dub of 'Die Hard With A Vengeance', the Rocky & Bullwinkle movie, The Wolverine, Captain America: The Winter Soldier, why Scorcese hasn't won more Oscars, and MTV Liquid Television.

    Movie Moan - Pitch Of Steel (aka we write the new Superman movie on air)

    Here it folks; the show you were supposed to get last week. And it's a corker that could shake the foundations of the planet.

    This week we turn one of Phil's rants into deed and action for a change. Since we're banging our heads against the wall for Warner Bros. to start multi-tasking and, y'know, actually craft a DC cinematic universe by producing more than one film at a time, we decided to prove that you could still make a traditional Superman sequel for next summer and still have 'Batman Vs. Superman Vs. The World' out for the year after.

    Over the course of the next two hours, you will get to hear something seldom done in the movie podcast arena; Phil, Jamie, and special guest Mr Randall Maynard will band together to write a treatment for the Superman sequel we deserve live on air. By the end of the show, we will have battled through the rewrites, studio notes and toy deals and come up with something we can all agree would be a solid next step in the new Superman's cinematic adventures.

    Feel free to dream of the movie we have made (since it will never be) or curse our names and pitch us something better in the comments section. Either way, tell us what you think.  Enjoy!

    Movie Moan Audio Commentary - 'Casino Royale' (1967)

    We did a video series looking back on all the official films, we did an audio commentary for the non-cannon curio 'Never Say Never Again', but the time has come to tackle the film even the most ardent Bond lovers (that being Jamie Williams and myself) fear to tread upon; the indescribable, unintelligible, farce to end all farces, can't even be called a movie cause it's several in one, 'Casino Royale' (1967).

    So join us for the next agonizing 131 mins as Phil, who has seen the film all the way through at least 7 times (just enough to vaguely comprehend it), takes Jamie, who has never seen it, by the hand and guides him through.

    Will they survive?  Will you?

    Note: Even if you've never seen the film, hopefully we have designed this audio commentary with your enjoyment in mind.  Trust me, I'll make more sense of the plot in the commentary than the film itself.

    Movie Moan - And The Last Film Ever Made Will Be...

     

    ...well you'll have to listen to the show of course but Gabe Toro has the scoop on the film that will literally cause the end of cinema. There will be no need to make any more films once it has been unleashed, assuming you don't die of a heart attack from sheer hype before you even get the chance to see it.

    Speaking of which, we at the Movie Moan podcast, consisting this week of Gabe, Jamie Williams, Spencer Perry, the enchanting Jen Mayhew, and myself, are sick of unsubstantiated and out of control rumours being treated as facts and scoops. We have become beyond gullible as a community. As such, this week we will each unleash the rumours we wish we could sit back and watch people fall for; rumours that are utter horse poop but that I know you will wish were true.

    And on top of all of that, we course talk about WB's utter stupidity and ball dropping, the gay Doctor Strange that will never be, Spike Jonze's 'Her', controversy with Matthew Mcconaughey, the Academy Awards actually making some good selections this year, and the whole issue of why modern motion pictures made in the last decade just don't seem built to last.

    Oh, and if you want to skip to the end first to hear me go nuclear on my local movie theatre for sabotaging my screening of 'The Wolf Of Wall Street' then I won't hold it against you.

    Movie Moan - The End Of The Comic Book Movie

    It's not a prediction, nor a forecast. It's a debate to settle once and for all........and a man's life is at stake.

    Namely our special guest Mr Randall Maynard who swears that, if the Marvel Cinematic Universe falls apart anytime soon, he will kill himself.

    Those are the stakes this week as prosecuting attorney Jamie Williams tries to make the case that the comic book movie genre has reached its peak and will end very shortly making way for an implosion of the current studio system and a way forward for more original productions.

    Standing opposed is hotshot defence lawyer Phil Gee who stands utterly opposed to this argument and will provide strong and damning evidence that proves the genre will survive and thrive, specifically because the alternative, the end of blockbusters as we know them, is not an option.

    Providing sound and wise judgement over the proceedings is the honourable Spencer Perry who will decide the final verdict and we find out who has won........and who is dead.

    It's the debate to end all debates. Whether you're sick of comic book movies or devour them, you'll want to listen.

    And there's even time for some Movie Moan randomness as we listen to what the guys sound like when they're just chatting before the show starts and don't think that Phil is recording them.
