Ep. 259 - Fifty Shades of HELL NO

• January 30th, 2016

Bibbs is back and you can hear him dying on this week's B-Movies Podcast! The groggy, sickly film critic William Bibbiani has emerged from the Sundance Film Festival and he's ready to join co-host Witney Seibold to review several new films from the fest (for the rest of his Sundance reviews, listen to last week's Linoleum Knife or check out his coverage at Crave), and the new theatrical releases The Finest Hours, Jane Got a Gun and Fifty Shades of Black.

Also on this week's episode, Bibbs and Witney take you on a guided tour through all 15 of this year's Oscar-nominated short films, a.k.a. those films most people never see and have to make wild guesses about in the yearly office gambling pool. This year's Oscar shorts are an impressive but emotionally exhausting lot, and Bibbs and Witney are going to tell you all about every strange one of them.

And of course, the "Shunting" continues this week, as Bibbs and Witney review the latest kinky, dumb, flying motorcycle and blowtorch fetishizing episode of your new favorite TV series Shadowhunters. You're welcome, internet.

Will Bibbs collapse on air due to his new and many post-Sundance diseases? You'll find out on The B-Movies Podcast #259 | Fifty Shades of HELL NO. Follow us on Twitter at @BMoviesPodcast, follow your hosts at @WilliamBibbiani and @WitneySeibold, and email us at bmoviespodcast@gmail.com to suggest your ideas for this year's Oscar wager, tell us which film changed your life or simply snipe at us.

Ep. 258 - Let’s Hear it for The Boy

• January 22nd, 2016

While the Bibbs is away, the Dave will play. 

William "Bibbs" Bibbiani is in Park City, UT enjoying the thin mountain air, enjoying the Sundance film festival, and Witney is back here in Los Angeles, enjoying the clement weather, and his funky fresh guest host, and legitimate YouTube sensation, Mr. Dave White of Linoleum Knife. As is their wont, the two of them go off on many tangents before discussing the whiteness of the Oscars as the only news story of the week. 
The two gentlemen then go on to review this week's releases, including The BoyDirty Grandpa, and The 5th Wave. One of those is actually pretty good! Dave also joins Witney in the podcast's newest feature, Shunting, wherein we review Shadowhunters, the most important show in the history of TV.
Listen in to hear fans' ideas for what our Oscar wager should be, and chortle along with their cruelty! Come on! It'll be fun!

Ep. 257 - Yours, Mine and 13 Hours

• January 15th, 2016

Michael Bay is back and he's just as Michael Bay as ever! This week on The B-Movies Podcast, film critics William Bibbiani and Witney Seibold review his new jingoistic action drama 13 Hours: The Secret Soldiers of Benghazi, as well as its competition at the box office this weekend, Ride Along 2 and A Perfect Day.

Also on this week's episode: a fond farewell to David Bowie, Alan Rickman and Dan Haggerty, a look at all the good and bad news that came out of this year's Razzie and Oscar nominations and the debut of an all-new segment - "Shunting" - in which we review the ill-advised new TV series Shadowhunters. It's gonna hurt!

Plus, you can make Bibbs and Witney do any dumb thing you want! All you have to do is email them at bmoviespodcast@gmail.com with your suggestion for this year's big Oscar wager. The loser will have to do something terrible on an upcoming episode of the podcast. Bibbs and Witney will read every single submission they get on the air (no matter how crazy or stupid), and if they can agree on one of the challenges, whichever host predicts the fewest Oscar winners will have to do it in a future episode.

Why does 13 Hours feel like it lasts for 13 hours? You'll find out on The B-Movies Pocast #257: Yours, Mine and 13 Hours! Follow us on Twitter at @BMoviesPodcast, follow your hosts at @WilliamBibbiani and @WitneySeibold, and subscribe on iTunes for weekly movie news, reviews, interviews, commentary tracks and more.

Ep. 255 - The Worst Films of 2015

• January 2nd, 2016

365 days, oceans of tears. The time has come to pick the worst of the worst. This week on Crave's long-running series The B-Movies Podcast, movie critics William Bibbiani and Witney Seibold present their picks for the worst films of 2015.

The worst films of 2015 deserve a whole episode to themselves, and if you think nothing good came out this year - and especially if you think you've seen it all - this is (also) the episode for you.

Commentary: Ryan Reynolds in Buried (2010)

• December 29th, 2015

So grab your copy of the film, or stream it online, and listen to the episode to find out how to synch up your picture. Then, sit back as Bibbs and Witney walk you through the history of experimental thrillers, the influence of Alfred Hitchcock, the pervasive political commentary of Buried and the ongoing career of Ryan Reynolds!
