Ep. 209 - Just F**k Already!

• February 13th, 2015

Get your floggers out because it's time for a very special, group sexy episode of The B-Movies Podcast! The movie event of the season is here, so William Bibbiani and Witney Seibold have recruited not one but two guest stars for our in-depth discussion and review of Fifty Shades of Grey. Join us in welcoming award-winning pornographic filmmaker Jacky St. James, and the co-host of the hit Schmoes Know podcast network and YouTube channel, Mark Ellis!

Bibbs, Witney, Jacky St. James and Mark Ellis are here to unpack the whole story behind Fifty Shades of Grey, where it came from and how it works. But does it work? Is the film erotic or just cheesy? Does it represent an accurate portrayal of BDSM? Is this a female fantasy that isn't intended for a male audience? And is Christian Grey just a monster or what?

Also on this week's podcast: Spider-Man moves to Marvel Studios, and reviews of the new films Kingsman: The Secret Service and The Last Five Years.

What are vampire gloves? You'll find out on The B-Movies Podcast #209: Just Fuck Already! Follow us on Twitter at @BMoviesPodcast, follow your hosts @WilliamBibbiani and @WitneySeibold, and follow our guests at @JackyStJames and @5150Ellis.

Special Guest: Ben Barnes

• February 3rd, 2015

If your hearts a-throbbin', you must be listening to this week's very special episode of The B-Movies Podcast. This week, host William Bibbiani (everyone calls him "Bibbs") sits down for an extended, off the cuff interview with the dashing leading man Ben Barnes, who stars in the new fantasy thriller Seventh Son opposite Oscar winner Jeff Bridges and Oscar nominee Julianne Moore. You know already know him as the star of fantasy epics like Stardust and Prince Caspian, and now you're going to swoon all over again as you listen to his in-depth episode of our show.

[Editor's Note: There is a brief audio glitch towards the beginning of the podcast. We apologize. It only lasts a few seconds and thankfully, it never comes back.]

Listen attentively as we grill Ben Barnes about what it's like to be interviewed (irony!), his experiences filming Seventh Son, the origin of Jeff Bridges' memorable accent, what it's like having multiple friends up for Oscars in the same year, and his eight-day career in the British boy band Hyrise, which wasn't nearly as cool as it sounds. In fact, Ben Barnes describes the experience as "awful." 

Why should you never make more than one excuse?

Ep. 206 - Your Mother’s Cookies

• January 23rd, 2015

While William "Bibbs" Bibbiani galavants willy-nilly around Park City, Utah for the Sundance Film Festival - and while co-host of the Linoleum Knife podcast, Mr, Alonso Duralde does the same - we have decided to engage in a little Orange County swingers' party partner swap. As such, the other co-host of Linoleum Knife, Mr. Dave White (of Movies.com) joins Witney Seibold on this week's episode of The B-Movies Podcast! And, just to sweeten the deal, and to make things all the more professional, the two gentlemen will be joined by Christy Lemire of RogerEbert.com and ChristyLemire.com

The three of them hunker down with tea and cookies to discuss the latest movie news (Dave doesn't care), and the oddball details in The Boy Next Door, a film with a surprising amount of pastry. They also review the not-at-all-very-good Mortdecai, the even worse Strange Magic, and the Birdman also-ran The Humbling

Ep. 205 - Did You Mean Meryl Streep?

• January 16th, 2015

The Oscar nominations have been announced, and ugh... this year. This week on The B-Movies Podcast, William Bibbiani and Witney Seibold disseminate the most boring Oscar nominations in a long time, and wonder how why so many white people felt the need to reward each other at the expense of others at the Academy Awards. And how the hell did Meryl Streep get nominated for the umpteenth time? Do the online ballots just autocomplete her name?


Also on this week's B-Movies Podcast, Bibbs and Witney review the new releases BlackhatPaddington and The Wedding Ringer. Witney doesn't seem to like anything this week. Is he right about everything or is Bibbs just not being cynical for once?


Who went on a blood quest to taxidermy this week?
