Ep. 271 - Hell is Mother People

• May 1st, 2016

You may be prepared for "Mother's Day," but nothing can prepare you for Mother's Day! This week on The B-Movies Podcast, William Bibbiani and Witney Seibold crack open the shaken can of Hell that is Garry Marshall's new holiday rom-com, all about a parallel universe that probably hates you (and Mother's Day). They also review the adorable widdle cat movie Keanu and the better than you'd probably expect video game adaptation Ratchet & Clank!

Also on this week's episode: Bibbs and Witney ponder what the world could possibly want from an Omen prequel, consider the history and future of ninja movies and celebrate what sounds like (and might very well be) the best instant streaming service ever.

And if you haven't checked out Bibbs and Witney's new podcast yet, be sure to take a listen to Canceled Too Soon, the show where your B-Movies Podcast hosts review TV series that lasted only one season (or less). First up: Poochinski, the sitcom where Peter Boyle gets turned into a horrifying animatronic dog and then gets immediately canceled after just one episode.

Ep. 270 - Hunt, Hunt, Hunt, He’s the Huntsman!

• April 23rd, 2016

The Huntsman is back and he's kicked Snow White to the curb in The Huntsman: Winter's War. This week on The B-Movies Podcast, your hosts William Bibbiani and Witney Seibold review one of the strangest sequels in recent memory and figure out what the heck went wrong. They also review the strange new Tom Hanks drama A Hologram for the King and figure out what went right.

Also on this week's episode, Bibbs and Witney do away with their controversial correspondent Tony Delgado, and bid a bittersweet farewell to the late, great Prince, Chyna and Michelle McNamara. They'll also run down all the latest movie news and whatnot, including the bizarrely overqualified writers attached to Hasbro's "shared universe," the weirdly familiar Rita Repulsa costume from the Power Rangers reboot and the trials and tribulations of Robert Downey Jr.'s once and future career.

Ep. 269 - Oh God! The Jungle Book Too?!

• April 16th, 2016

If you ever wonder, wondered who... who wrote the jungle book,  you should probably look that up. For now, we're reviewing the new Disney remake of The Jungle Book from director Jon Favreau (Iron Man), and our hosts William Bibbiani and Witney Seibold can't decide whether it sucks or rules. One host likes it, the other totally doesn't, and they're going to debate the hell out of that on this week's episode of The B-Movies Podcast.

Also this week, Bibbs and Witney review the new releases Barbershop: The Next Cut and Green Room, and tackle some of the biggest news stories of the week. What does the future hold for the live-action Pokemon movie? Should Dwayne Johnson and Kevin Hart re-team for a remake of Jumanji? What the heck is up that with new Spider-Man movie title? Will Jason Statham live out his ultimate destiny by punching a giant shark? And is the recent controversy around Scarlett Johansson starring in Ghost in the Shell completely justified?

Why does the world need a Meowth spin-off movie? You'll find out on The B-Movies Podcast #269: Oh God!

Ep. 268 - You’re Not The Boss Of Me

• April 9th, 2016

Melissa McCarthy is the boss, but is her new film The Boss really that boss? This week on The B-Movies Podcast, William Bibbiani and Witney Seibold review the hit new comedy that has critics screaming and audiences tolerating it. They're also reviewing the ambitious first-person action thriller Hardcore Henry, the Jake Gyllenhaal drama Demolition, and the impressive new thrillers The Invitation and Hush!

Also on this week's episode, Bibbs and Witney debate the biggest news stories of the week, including the troubling sequel to Edge of Tomorrow, the even more troubling sequel to Kingsman, and why the box office disappointment of Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice might actually force Warner Bros. to make MORE superhero movies. Oh yes. That's a real possibility. Logic is weird in Hollywood. And logic is weirder online, where some superhero movie fans are upset that critics want films in this genre to be "fun." How dare they...?

Is Duke Nukem nothing more than a murderous killbot? You'll find out on The B-Movies Podcast #268: You're Not The Boss Of Me!

Bonus: Mike Flanagan & Kate Siegel Talk ‘Hush’

• April 6th, 2016

Hush now! The director and star of the Netflix thriller Hush are here on The B-Movies Podcast! This week, director Mike Flanagan (Oculus) and star Kate Siegel (Ouija) sit down with host William Bibbiani to talk all about the origins of Hush, the tricks involved with making a low budget thriller, and how they co-wrote the exciting new film together, acting out all of the shocking situations in the "comfort" of their own home.

Hush stars Kate Siegel as a deaf author named Maddie, who falls prey to a serial killer (John Gallagher Jr.) at her isolated home. It's a high-concept thriller that forced the filmmakers to get exceptionally creative, and the sort of storytelling that has made Mike Flanagan a coveted talent in Hollywood. We also grill him about the upcoming horror sequel Ouija 2 and his involvement in the long-gestating I Know What You Did Last Summer reboot!

What's the weirdest casting idea Mike Flanagan was heard for I Know What You Did Last Summer...? You'll find out on The B-Movies Podcast Presents: Mike Flanagan and Kate Siegel! Follow the show on Twitter at @BMoviesPodcast, follow your hosts at @WilliamBibbiani and @WitneySeibold, follow Mike and Kate at @FlanaganFilm and @K8Siegel, and of course, subscribe to The B-Movies Podcast on iTunes so you don't miss a single, solitary episode of movie news, reviews, commentary tracks, exclusive interviews and more!

• April 2nd, 2016

Fifteen years ago, did movies suck or rule? That's the question we're answering on this week's episode of The B-Movies Podcast, where William Bibbiani and Witney Seibold each present their picks for the best films of 2001. One of our critics champions the most popular and successful films of 2001, while the other speaks out in favor of the year's strangest and most depressing features. Which one is which? (Oh, you can probably guess already.)

Also in this week's episode, Bibbs and Witney review the new releases Everybody Wants Some!! and God's Not Dead 2, and delve into a deeper discussion of the faith-based questions raised by the latest wave of Christian cinema.

Which movies did Bibbs and Witney single out as the best films of 2001? You'll find out on The B-Movies Podcast #267: The Best Films of 2001!

• March 26th, 2016

There's a new Superman movie, and that means it's time to review ALL the Superman movies. This week on The B-Movies Podcast, we're taking a look back at nine live-action Superman movies leading up to a spoiler free (and then a spoiler-filled) review of Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice. How does Batman v Superman hold up against the other Superman movies? Have we ever had a truly great motion  picture about this iconic superhero character, and if not, why the hell not? They'll also review Allegiant, The Program, Midnight Special, Pee-wee's Big Holiday, My Big Fat Greek Wedding 2 and Space Cop.

Also this week's episode! William Bibbiani and Witney Seibold say goodbye to the late, great Garry Shandling and discuss the biggest news stories of the week (and the week they missed last week): Indiana Jones 5, a remake of Jacob's Ladder, Zack Snyder's The Fountainhead, Disney returns to The Black Cauldron, the "relaunch" of Cannonball Run and last week's special guest Max Landis becomes one of the highest paid screenwriters in the film industry! 

Which of the most widely hated Superman movies is secretly great?
