Special Guest: Rob Cohen

• April 27th, 2015

He gave the world The Fast and the Furious, The Monster Squad, The Wiz and xXx, and now he's on CraveOnline's B-Movies Podcast, sharing eye-opening stories that span decades of film history. Filmmaker Rob Cohen is in the house, and he's here to tell your host William Bibbiani all about his underrated new erotic thriller The Boy Next Door and all of his biggest movies to date!

In this in-depth, extended episode of The B-Movies Podcast, Rob Cohen reveals that Jennifer Lopez had final cut on the sex scene from The Boy Next Door, and only asked Cohen to cut out a second shot of co-star Ryan Guzman's naked ass. He also explains why, despite all the internet outcry, that first edition of Homer's The Iliad makes perfect sense. No really, it does!

But wait, there's more! In this week's bonus episode, Cohen also reveals his original plans for 2 Fast 2 Furious and the behind the scenes struggle to get Michael Jackson cast in The Wiz, because director Sidney Lumet thought Jackson was just "a Vegas act." 

Is there any future at all for the Monster Squad reboot, or the third xXx movie? The answers may surprise you on The B-Movies Podcast Presents: Rob Cohen! Follow the show on Twitter at @BMoviesPodcast, follow your host at @WilliamBibbiani, and be sure to check out The Boy Next Door, on home video now.

Bonus Episode: Alex Garland on Ex Machina & Dredd 2

• April 6th, 2015

Are you ready for a very special bonus episode of The B-Movies Podcast? We sure as hell hope so, because we've got writer/director Alex Garland on hand for an in-depth interview about his critically acclaimed new sci-fi thriller Ex Machina, in which future Star Wars: Episode VII co-stars Oscar Isaac and Domhnall Gleeson are trying to prove whether a sophisticated new artificial intelligence named Ava (Alicia Vikander, Seventh Son) has achieved true consciousness. 

Alex Garland is no stranger to science-fiction, having written the screenplays for Dredd, Sunshine, and Never Let Me Go, and in Ex Machina he explores a number of serious issues. B-Movies Podcast host William Bibbiani grills him on the ethics behind artificial intelligence and some of the more far out conceits of Ex Machina, like using search engines to develop an artificial human consciousness and whether or not the film warrants the many comparison's being made to Mary Shelley's Frankenstein. And for hardcore film nerds, they also get into a serious debate about auteur theory, which Garland considers a serious matter now that he's in the director's chair.

But for Dredd fans, the real scorcher is Alex Garland's revelations about Dredd 2 and Dredd 3. Although Garland says that the future of the Dredd series is uncertain, he does reveal that "it was the hope" that there would be at least two more movies, and he also reveals the plan was their storylines.

Ep. 215 - Death Camp for Kids!

• March 27th, 2015

William "Bibbs" Bibbiani had better things to do (he's out of town, speaking on convention panels), so Witney Seibold threw up the Batsignal for this week's episode of The B-Movies Podcast, and received not one, but two superhero critics as substitutes. Alonso Duralde of TheWrap.com and Scott Mantz of Access Hollywood both sat in on this week's episode, assuring that all will be amazing. In this episode, Alonso and Scott convince Witney that Get Hard is even worse than he gave it credit for, divide over While We're Young, wince at the doggie mayhem in White God, get confused over the Viggo Mortensen art flick Jauja, and discover that a central setting of the movie Home is essentially a death camp. But, y'know, for kids! 

Scott bring the energy, Alonso brings the intellect, and Witney sits to marvel at it all. Also, they discuss superhero movie news (as is common these days), wonder about the remake of Alien Nation, and reveal the best Beatle. 

What does the phrase "heart-warming" really mean? You’ll find out in The B-Movies Podcast #215: Death Camp for Kids! Follow the show on Twitter at @BMoviesPodcast and follow your host at  @WitneySeibold and our guests at @ADuralde and @MovieMantz. And don’t forget to subscribe to our show for free on iTunes for weekly movie news, reviews, commentary tracks, exclusive interviews and – of course – whatnot.
