Ep. 282 - Let’s Go, Ghostbusters!

• July 17th, 2016

We ain't afraid of no Ghostbusters reboot! This week on The B-Movies Podcast, film critics William Bibbiani and Witney Seibold are reviewing one of the most talked about movies in years, Ghostbusters, which forges a new direction for the iconic franchise (to the consternation of some of the fans). How does it hold up against the original? We're reviewing the film based on actually seeing it on this week's episode.

Also this week, Bibbs and Witney review the Woody Allen movie Café Society and the Asylum "mockbuster" Sinister Squad. They also consider a meaningful response to their choice for The Best Film of 1991

Ep. 275 - X-Men: Apocalypse No!

• May 29th, 2016

Should the X-Men be an ex-franchise? That's what we're debating on this week's episode of The B-Movies Podcast, where we figure out what the heck went wrong with X-Men: Apocalypse and the whole damned franchise in general. Sometimes it's great, sometimes it sucks, but is the problem the comics, the filmmakers, or something more complicated than that?

And since it's a generally crappy weekend for new movies, your hosts William Bibbiani and Witney Seibold are also deconstructing the disappointing Alice Through the Looking Glass and The Do-Over, the latest Adam Sandler movie to debut exclusively on Netflix. How bad can they be? They can be AWFUL, and this episode of The B-Movies Podcast will explain why, in exhaustive detail.
