Another loaded week has Erik Childress and Steve Prokopy looking at nine new movies. They include another guy-joins-shadowy-government-agency film (Section 8) and a tale of another famous (in Canada) bank robber tale with Josh Duhamel (Bandit). The star of The Babadook takes on another rocky tale of motherhood (The Justice of Bunny King), Adelaide Clemens must come to terms with having her first child and the two men vying for her affection (The Swearing Jar) and Lena Dunham adapts the story of a 14 year-old in the 13th century trying to fend off her own suitors (Catherine Called Birdy). Two icons are also chronicled by Reginald Hudlin in a documentary about the recently departed Mr. Poitier (Sidney) and Ana De Armas takes on the role of Marilyn Monroe in Andrew Dominik's controversial adaptation (Blonde).

Erik Childress and Steve Prokopy catch-up on two weeks-worth of movies. 13 movies to be precise and many of them have a lot in common. Justin Long is in two films where he should be staying away from a house, one where he is trying to get laid (House of Darkness) and another that he is trying to sell that Erik has some specific thoughts on (Barbarian). Not to mention the smart house that is trying to kill it's inhabitants (Margaux). There is the true story of sisters who would not talk to anyone but each other (The Silent Twins) and one of the great horror films of the year – and on this episode – about what can happen if you see something but don't say something (Speak No Evil). There are a pair of mysteries with Sam Rockwell and Saoirse Ronan trying to solve one (See How They Run) and Jon Hamm stepping into Chevy Chase's to solve the other (Confess, Fletch). Erik and Steve also get saddened by the disappointments delivered by Robert Zemeckis (Pinocchio) and Kevin Smith (Clerks III). But beyond those there is also Thandiwe Newton in the acclaimed Sundance drama (God's Country), a documentary about David Bowie (Moonage Daydream), Viola Davis and an army of women kicking ass (The Woman King) and Ti West & Mia Goth's prequel to this year's mix of horror and porno (Pearl).   0:00 - Intro God's Country 18:13 - House of Darkness 30:49 - Margaux 37:52 - Pinocchio 54:33 – The Silent Twins 1:01:39 - Barbarian 1:20:13 - Moonage Daydream 1:27:07 - Speak No Evil 1:38:24 - See How They Run 1:44:42 - Clerks III 2:01:24 - Confess, Fletch 2:15:49 - Pearl 2:30:56 - The Woman King 2:43:45 - Outro   AVAILABLE ON BLU-RAY AND DVD THIS WEEK Aqua Teen Hunger Force: The Baffler Meal Complete Collection The Automat Cursed Films: Season Two (2021-2022) The Equalizer: Season Two Exotica The Lost Boys (4K) Outlander (Season 6) Poltergeist (1982) (4K) Universal Noir #1 (1947-1954) Vengeance

It all begins with an emotionally unsettling film they have been championing since Sundance featuring another knockout performance by Rebecca Hall and a never creepier Tim Roth (Resurrection). Steve checks out Juliette Binoche as a trucker who gets involved in child trafficking (Paradise Highway) while Erik covers Angourie Rice as an overachieving high schooler trying to sabotage her competition (Honor Society). Zoey Deutsch is an underachieving photo editor who tries to manipulate a fresh grief hashtag in a new satire (Not Okay) and Katie Holmes and Jim Sturgess are forced to white-people-problem their way through the start of the Covid pandemic (Alone Together).

Taika Waititi's Thor: Love and Thunder gets the full business from the Eriks talking about the waste of two of the best actors working today and a most embarrassing turn by a third. Where does Gor, the God Butcher fit in with MCU villainy – or where should he have fit in. Can any of the deadly serious plotlines find room to breathe in a screenplay that is too busy bee-bop and scattin' around to warrant any genuine conflict? Childress and Laws go scorched earth for over two hours and ask if this is an inflection point for Marvel fans. Is their loyalty endless or will what may be the worst film in their Universe give them pause the next time they are asked to defend it.

Bonus episodes will be ending soon! We'll be back to our regularly scheduled program in a matter of days for sure. Instead of making this a Patreon exclusive, I decided to share this with everyone since it is a special one. Once again, I'm joined by Chicago film critic Erik Childress of the Movie Madness podcast as well as co-host of The Friendship Dilemma to record a full-length feature commentary track of yet another film from 1984. The first one we did together was for another film my dad and I bonded over, THE LAST STARFIGHTER. This time, thanks to a glorious 4K release from Vinegar Syndrome, we decided to finally follow-up with another commentary for CLOAK & DAGGER. It's a movie that means a lot to me. Join us on Davy's journey through espionage and intrigue - a nostalgia-fueled trip through our childhoods covering everything from Atari games to our appreciation for both Dabney Coleman and Henry Thomas as a great father/son pairing that surprisingly gets very moving thanks to Tom Holland's ingenious script and Richard Franklin's assured, subtle direction. Huge thanks to my dad for making sure I saw this at a young age as well as my Aunt Jean who somehow got a VHS bootleg copy that I wore out when I was a kid.

Tis the season for more bonus content but soon enough Bill Ackerman will be bringing us an official director-centric episode soon. For this excursion into something besides movies, I once hosted called Voices & Visions and I would recruit friend and Austin-based journalist Dan Solomon to go back 20 years to talk about a year in music - an art form that I love every bit much as film. For this retrospective, my guests and I curate a new list of ten favorite records from that year, playing snippets of certain songs and discussing our feelings about music in general. As of 2021, I decided to include my dear friend Jason Simpson, also a writer, to join us in this endeavor. As listeners know, I've been going back 30 years to talk about the year in film with Collin Souter and Erik Childress, so I asked Jason and Dan to do the same from now on with records. 1992 was the year I officially became a musician so it's a special discussion for me, in terms of records that had a bigger impact than most even if my taste has changed over the years. Hopefully everyone enjoys this discussion about our favorite records from that particular year, even if there are very few references to films and directors for this bonus episode. It was such a blast sharing memories with dear friends from high school as well as getting to hear a lot of incredible music from the early 90s. If you want to hear the older episodes of the music retrospective, they are now archived below as well. Thank you so much for listening and much gratitude to Dan & Jay for their insights, opinions and a 30-year friendship.

Erik Childress and Steve Prokopy have a half-dozen movie reviews this week that actually touch upon two franchises, an important documentary and even a couple of unexpected surprises. If you want to know more about the pre-Ghostbusters era of Ray Parker Jr. there is now a film about that (Who You Gonna Call?). Henry Czerny is a former priest is visited by a stranger with a connection to his past (The Righteous). A shy teen desperately seeks out his first kiss to finally get that dang electronic collar off his neck (Wyrm). There were two films at Sundance about the underground Chicago abortion group, but you only need to see one of them (The Janes). Adam Sandler is a basketball scout with a hot new prospect he mentors (Hustle). And finally the dinosaurs are part of our world now and Erik and Steve have a lot to say about the so-called final entry in this series (Jurassic World: Dominion). 0:00 - Intro 1:03 – Who You Gonna Call? 10:47 – The Righteous 18:36 – Wyrm 27:23 - The Janes 38:52 - Hustle 51:28 - Jurassic World: Dominion 1:16:52 - Outro

Erik Childress and Steve Prokopy saw a lot of different movies this week. But that means you get 11 reviews from them even if its not a great lineup. Erik finds one big positive at the center of Sean Patrick Flanery's directorial debut (Frank & Penelope) and Steve has a few non-negative things to say about the latest with Bruce Willis (White Elephant). There are fantastical narratives about the missing minutes of the Nixon tapes (18 ½) and the creation of a famous tower (Eiffel). Erik gets completely annoyed with the latest Blumhouse horror (Unhuman) and surprisingly unannoyed with the central character of the new horror film from Rob “Host” Savage (Dashcam). Gay relationships take center stage in comedy (Fire Island) and the true story of war poet Siegfried Sassoon in the latest from director Terence Davies (Benediction). Straight-to-video called and want the new Elsa Pataky action film from Netflix back (Interceptor) and “It Follows”' Maika Monroe contends with another dangerous stalker (Watcher). Finally, David Cronenberg returns to the big screen after eight years and the guys see something new in it along with something old (Crimes of the Future). 1:00 – Frank & Penelope 8:04 – White Elephant 14:26 – Unhuman 22:33 – Eiffel 28:23 - Dashcam 35:22 – Fire Island 43:43 – 18 ½ 50:13 – Interceptor 1:00:52 - Watcher 1:10:18 - Benediction 1:18:37 - Crimes of the Future 1:34:44 - Outro

Erik Childress and Steve Prokopy return after a week off to catch-up on reviewing 12 new movies for you. They include a baseball documentary that premiered at SXSW this year (Facing Nolan), a new film written by Paul Schrader (There Are No Saints) and the great Haley Lu Richardson stars in a film about revisiting family trauma (Montana Story). They also revisit a Sundance comedy about two black friends trying not to get blamed when a white girl passes out in their house (Emergency) and one of the choices from the Chicago Critics Film Festival is a documentary about the longest hostage standoff in New York history (Hold Your Fire). Someone who never held their fire is given the four-hour documentary treatment by Judd Apatow (George Carlin's American Dream). Four is also the number of television shows getting the feature length treatment including a pair of sequels (Downton Abbey: A New Era, Jackass 4.5) and two animated ones (Chip ‘N' Dale: Rescue Rangers, The Bob's Burgers Movie). Erik and Steve have divergent thoughts on the new Alex Garland film (Men) but they are certainly wingmen when it comes to throwing cold water on the latest legacy sequel (Top Gun: Maverick).   0:00 – Intro 0:55 – There Are No Saints 7:54 – Facing Nolan 13:00 – Downton Abbey: A New Era 22:57 – Jackass 4.5 29:39 – Hold Your Fire 40:47 – George Carlin's American Dream 53:06 – Montana Story 1:01:56 – Emergency 1:10:12 - Men 1:23:02 – Chip ‘N' Dale: Rescue Rangers 1:37:44 – The Bob's Burgers Movie 1:48:58 – Top Gun: Maverick 2:08:42 - Outro

Erik Childress and Steve Prokopy will be at the Chicago Critics Film Festival this week, but they still managed to find time for ten new movie reviews. Well, one old one as they reviewed Ninja Thyberg's powerful film about the porn industry at last year's Sundance (Pleasure). This week did have a lot of other ickiness to it though including an erotic thriller no-show with Ashley Benson (Private Property) and the documentary about Dr. Religious Wacko who personally inseminated his patients (Our Father). Then maybe icky in a good way is at least one kids-who-can't-control-their-own-powers film (The Innocents) and another about a virus running violently amok influencing the worst parts of our brains (The Sadness). But Steve also talks a positive pandemic story about music (Jazz Fest: A New Orleans Story) while Erik looks at Christina Ricci trying to protect her son from an entity in a lake (Monstrous) and Rebel Wilson wakes up after 20 years in a coma and still wants to be prom queen (Senior Year). Then for those looking for a breezy true matinee tale of war, the guys may have one for you (Operation Mincemeat). However if you were hoping Blumhouse Productions would offer something better than the 1984 adaptation of a Stephen King novel, you better listen to what Erik & Steve have to say about it first (Firestarter).   0:00 - Intro 1:00 – Pleasure 13:43 – Private Property 22:14 – Jazz Fest: A New Orleans Story 28:29 – Monstrous 34:42 – Our Father 42:30 – Senior Year 53:49 – The Innocents 1:02:24 - The Sadness 1:09:51 – Operation Mincemeat 1:20:26 – Firestarter 1:42:25 - Outro

Sam Raimi returns to the world of Marvel for his first directorial effort since 2013 and comic book expert Erik Laws returns to join Erik Childress to breakdown this sequel to Doctor Strange. Or sequel to Wandavision? Whatever it is it is a lot and the Eriks may recognize the very specific Raimi touches he brings to the Cinematic Universe, but is it enough to overcome what Childress believes is a big problem for Marvel going forward. Does their own multiverse interfere with the storytelling especially if they were unwilling to truly dive into the new one they have opened up? Is the film a manic ride that fulfills the horror quota of their expanding genres or is its screenplay the equivalent of notes on a whiteboard with no lines drawn between them? Childress and Laws address it all and more (including spoilers) so are they on to something or just gone a little mad themselves?

One of the best movies of the year…2021…may just come around to one of the best movies of 2022 on this episode. At least according to one of the Movie Madness critics during the round of seven reviews on this episode. Erik Childress and Steve Prokopy do indeed agree on Celine Sciamma's tale of childhood grief (Petite Maman). The kids in that movie certainly have it better than the documentary of a ‘90s clothing giant (White Hot: The Rise & Fall of Abercrombie & Fitch) and even they may have it better than the one at the center of a Lena Headey thriller (9 Bullets). Erik looks at the latest from DisneyNature (Polar Bear) while Steve handles the animated animals looking to pull off a heist (The Bad Guys).
