Director Spotlight: Quentin Tarantino

Originally the plan was just to do an episode on Once Upon a Time in Hollywood, but we decided to go full QT on this one and give you a much more bloated episode. We go through all his Tarantino’s movies and talk about the good, the bad, and the feet…my god he loves feet. So buckle in for this extra special, extra long episode of Coming Off the Reels.

Enjoy!

Fast & Furious presents: Hobbs & Shaw

Okay, out of the gate, we have some problems with the title. We understand why they felt the need to make it so wordy, but you know Roy, and he really get particular when it comes to movie titles. How did we feel about the 9th movie in the F&F universe? I guess we could just tell you, but then maybe you would listen to us ramble on for an hour about how ridiculous this movie was. So maybe just listen to the episode.

Enjoy!

Always Be My Maybe & Brightburn

Yeah, that’s right, we are pairing the new Netflix comedy Always Be My Maybe and the ultra-violent Superman knockoff, Brightburn. Do they go together at all? No. Did we find a way to make bridge the difference to make a good pairing? No. But did we at least give it all we had in the hopes that you would enjoy this weird duo?Also no. Kidding, kidding…we always give you 110%.

Enjoy!

Men In Black: International & Dark Phoenix

The idea that people are tired of sequels is not a new one. For years every time something fails, people are so quick to say that Hollywood doesn’t make anything new anymore, and that on reboots and sequels get any screens at the theater. I am not here to argue about that, that could probably be the subject of several other episodes. But I think that maybe people aren’t tired of sequels, they are just tired of bad movies. So, on that note, here is our episode for Men in Black: International and Dark Phoenix.

Enjoy!

Booksmart

I know that we don’t normally tell you how we feel about a movie in these little blurbs, but you should run, not walk, to see Booksmart. I know that there are a lot of big tentpole films out right now, and maybe a high school comedy doesn’t sound like much competition, but this directorial debut from OIivia Wilde manages to exceed many of the limitations that plague this genre of films. We give our opinions without going too deep into the movie, so it is pretty spoiler free. We fill the rest of the time discussing our favorite “graduation” themed movies, and there are some good ones.

Enjoy!

The Long Shot

This week we try to discuss the new comedy, The Long Shot. I say that we tried, because we really live up to our name on this episode, and had a pretty hard time staying on track. So in addition to our take on this charming new comedy, we also discuss the new Sonic the Hedgehog trailer, SNL, and my mom’s love of DC films.

Enjoy!

Our Favorite MCU Moments

When we finished recording our Avengers: Endgame episode, we decided that we wanted to talk about some of our favor Marvel moments through the years. Some of them are scene that we all love, a few were kind of a surprise. These are all moments from before Endgame, so if you haven’t seen it yet, nothing will be spoiled for you. But seriously, if you haven’t seen the new Avengers, please stop what you’re doing and go now!

Enjoy!

Worst of 2018

It is negative degrees outside this morning, but nothing gets us fired up and the blood pumping like talking about movies that we hate. There is plenty of yelling in this episode, and some of it even comes from Roy, so you know those have to be bad movies. What were least favorite films of 2018?

Enjoy!

Christmas Classics

I know that it is the day after Christmas, but we just have too much of the holiday spirit in us to give up the ghost just yet. For the last of our Christmas themed episodes, we all tried to watch a “classic” holiday film that we probably should have seen before 2018. I was pleasantly surprised by the lack of bah humbuggery or grinchiness there was, since some of these movies are pretty silly. I guess we can chalk it up to all those Christmas miracles that always seem to be happening.

Enjoy!

The Christmas Chronicles

Sometimes Ryan throws a curveball and instead of suggesting a horror film or dark comedy, he pitches the idea to do a show on the Netflix original The Christmas Chronicles. Any film starring Kurt Russel is welcome on COTR, so here is our episode on what has already become an instant classic…somehow.

Enjoy!

Hallmark Christmas Movies!

For this episode we each chose a random Hallmark Christmas movie to watch and discuss. I know what you’re thinking… “If you’ve seen one Hallmark movie, haven’t you really seen them all?” Obviously the answer is “yes”, but that doesn’t mean that this won’t become and annual tradition here at Coming Off the Reels. So sit back as we discuss our viewings of North Pole, Christmas in the Smokies, Road to Christmas, and A Shoe Addict’s Christmas.

Enjoy!

A Simple Favor

Sometimes we record so many shows at once that some of them get lost in the mix. This is kind of the case for A Simple Favor. We recored this episode not too terribly long after it was released in theaters but are just getting around to posting it. Fortunately, this movie will be released for streaming and to purchase in the next week or two, so it’s almost like we planned it this way.

Enjoy!

Playing Catchup

This week we talk about several movies that we are just getting around to, though our main focus is on Bad Times at the El Royale and Mission Impossible: Fallout. We also circle back on a couple of movies that we’ve talked about on this show already.

Director Spotlight - Michael Bay

In the last of the three shows we recorded at Two Cities Pizza Company, we did a director spotlight for Michael Bay. We briefly go over his body of work, and talk about the good, bad, and sometimes unwatchable films in his filmography. This isn’t an entire episode bashing everything this director has created. In fact the general feelings toward him seems to be all over the spectrum. So sit back, blow something up, and listen to this week’s episode.

Enjoy!

Birthday Special!

To celebrate Drew's 40th birthday, the other fellas kidnapped, and recorded several shows at Two Cities Pizza Company in Mason, OH. Instead of a regular episode, this week you will get the birthday special. Rather than talk about one movie, we talk about Oscar facts, movie lists, and movie trivia. Some of that is related to the birthday celebration, and some of it is just weird information. We had a blast recording this, we hope you have fun listening. 

 

Enjoy!

MoviePass!

This was originally going to be just a small bonus episode about MoviePass and the things that we liked and didn't like about the system. Then the wheels started coming off of the much beloved ticketing program, so our conversation became a lot longer. Now we have a full episode all about the good, bad, and ugly sides of MoviePass. Please feel free to send us your stories, because I know there are a lot. 

 

Enjoy!

Coming Soon...

We take a look at some of the movies you've been seeing trailers for over and over and over again. Is it naive to be cautiously optimist about all of these movies? Maybe, but I will never apologize for wanting every movie to be good. Maybe not Aquaman. 

Enjoy!

 

Stephen King

This week we finish our Kinner triple header with a deep dive into films from the mind of Stephen King.  Love them or hate them, these movies are worth discussing!  We cover everything from Carrie (the good), to The Dark Tower (the bad) and Sleepwalkers (the hilarious!!).  It's a fun conversation and we hope you enjoy!
