    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.

    Movie Moan - The End Is Nigh (sort of)

    We're back for the new year but we're not going to be sticking around for too long. We have a very important announcement to make about the future of entertainment as presented by Phil Gee and Jamie Williams. And it's at the end of the show so feel free to skip straight to it. I hope you understand what we're doing but if you do have any questions then please feel free to ask me in the comments section below or on Twitter.

    And once you've rewound back to the start of the show you can join us as we pick the most important films we saw in 2013, consisting of our favourite film, the worst film, the most surprising film, and the most disappointing film of the year.

    Plus, Phil shares a story of how he became more than just a man. He became........a legend.........for an hour.

    Movie Moan Audio Commentary - 'Steel' (1997)

    Join Phil Gee & Randall Maynard, co-hosts of 'Supermoan: The Ultimate Superman Retrospective' for a look at the loosest possible definition of the term 'spin-off movie' as one of the four imposter Supermen who took over during the death of the man of steel, comes to the big screen in an epic $16 million dollar production.

    But if you think we're just going to tear 'Steel' to pieces then you've got another thing coming.  When all is said and done, it isn't the worst comic book movie that came out in 1997, the year that brought us 'Batman & Robin' and 'Spawn'.  We will try and make the argument that 'Steel' has merit, that it has heart, charm, and intentional humour.  It just also has a costume that......,is problematic.

    So watch the film (if you can find it) along with our audio commentary as we try and make an entire film studies class out of a mistreated and misunderstood film.

    On a final note, Randall corrected me very shortly after we recorded the commentary and pointed out, as you can see above, that they DID release a toy of Steel and his amazing bike.  I hope he gets one for me.
