Ep. 316 - Power Rangers to the People

• March 26th, 2017

Hollywood is finally taking the Power Rangers seriously... is that a good thing? This week on The B-Movies Podcast, film critics William Bibbiani and Witney Seibold are reviewing the big budget Power Rangers reboot and debating whether it's awesome or merely slightly better than you probably assumed it would be.

Also this week, Bibbs and Witney review the sci-fi thriller Life, the retro television reboot CHiPs and the new horror comedy Prevenge. They also take a good long look at the biggest news stories of the week, including unexpected Star Wars news, even more Adam Sandler movies, a Silver Sable/Black Cat movie, Robert Downey Jr. talking to the animals and a big budget Hollywood knock-off of a low-budget knockoff from The Asylum.

Ep. 315 - Beauty and the Beast and the Blahs

• March 19th, 2017

It's a tale as old as time, so maybe it DIDN'T need to be told again. This week on The B-Movies Podcast, film critics William Bibbiani and Witney Seibold are lighting their torches and raising their pitchforks in response to the latest Disney remake, a misguided and poorly developed new version of Beauty and the Beast!

Also this week, Bibbs and Witney are reviewing the new releases The Belko Experiment and Song to Song, and catching up on last week's new releases Kong: Skull Island, Raw and Personal Shopper! They'll also debate the biggest news stories of the week - about films like Venom and The Matrix and The Other Side of the Wind - and Bibbs will give you the lowdown on all the exciting films he saw at SXSW 2017, including Baby Driver, Atomic Blonde, Tragedy Girls and more!

Ep. 314 - A Logan Dirty Shame

• March 6th, 2017

We're calling it: Logan is one of the best superhero movies ever made. And in this week's episode of The B-Movies Podcast we are going to explain why this bleak, world-weary and violent new film stands so tall above the other X-Men movies and, indeed, almost any other film in the superhero genre. 

But that's not all! When they're not reviewing Logan, film critics William Bibbiani and Witney Seibold are also reviewing the new releases Don't Kill It and The Shack, debating the biggest news stories of the week (a new Tron! a new Transformers! another Wizard of Oz!) and answering a whole bunch of your emails.

Yup, we keep getting your letters, so we'll keep reading them on the air! Be sure to drop us a line at bmoviespodcast@gmail.com with your comments, opinions, suggestions, the films that inspire you, your picks for the best films of the decade (so far) and your questions about Bibbs and Witney.

Ep. 310 - Very Bad Rings

• February 5th, 2017

Because YOU asked for it, we've got yet another sequel to The Ring. And because there was a movie called Aliens (and not because it makes any sense in context), the new film is called Rings. And on this week's episode of The B-Movies Podcast we're going to explain in great detail why Rings sucks. A lot. We suffered so you don't have to. Those are the rules.

Also this week, we're going to review the newish releases The Space Between Us, The Salesman and Resident Evil: The Final Chapter, and say goodbye to the late, great actor John Hurt. And we'll consider the ramifications of Denis Villeneuve directing the Dune remake, the future of the Batman movies without Ben Affleck behind the camera, and how Donald Trump's travel ban is going to impact this year's Academy Awards.

Plus, we keep getting your letters, so we'll keep reading them on the air! Be sure to drop us a line at bmoviespodcast@gmail.com with your comments, opinions, suggestions, the films that inspire you, your picks for the best films of the decade (so far) and your questions about Bibbs and Witney.

Ep. 308 - La La Land: An Academy Awards Story

• January 25th, 2017

We all knew La La Land was going to be the film to beat at the Academy Awards, but who could have predicted it would earn the most Oscar nominations in history? This week on The B-Movies Podcast, film critics William Bibbiani take a close look at what the success of La La Land says about Hollywoodland, what the failures of the Razzies are doing to our standards and whether the new releases Split and xXx: Return of Xander Cage are the films we need in a particularly perilous January.

Also this week, Bibbs and Witney consider the deeper meaning (if there is one) of the new title Star Wars: Rogue One, a bold new hope for the future of the Terminator series and the career of the late, great character actor Miguel Ferrer. 

What new categories do we need at the Oscars?

Bonus: Voltron Producers Joaquim Dos Santos and Lauren Montgomery

• January 22nd, 2017

The Netflix series Voltron: Legendary Defender isn't just a great animated series, it's one of the few nostalgia reboots that surpasses the original. Based on the classic 1980s anime import, the new Voltron tells the story of a team of earthlings who venture to outer space to pilot robot lions and save the universe from a war-mongering tyrant. And in the hands of producers Joaquim Dos Santos and Lauren Montgomery, not only is that concept totally plausible but it's also rich with character, drama and detail.

That's why we've got them on The B-Movies Podcast. This week, William Bibbiani travels to the Dreamworks Animation offices to sit down with Joaquim Dos Santos and Lauren Montgomery to talk about how they transformed Voltron from an old hit series into a new hit series, why they changed so many aspects of the show, what really happened with that unusual first season finale, what creative decisions went into every episode of the newly-released second season, and what's to come with season three!

 

So grab your space lion and get ready to listen to The B-Movies Podcast Presents: The Producers of Voltron: Legendary Defender! Follow The B-Movies Podcast on Twitter at @BMoviesPodcast and follow your hosts at @WilliamBibbiani and @WitneySeibold.
