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.

 

When can we all finally admit that the "Gotta Dance" sequence in Singin' in the Rain doesn't work?

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!

Ep. 307 - Bye Bye Man v Monster Trucks: Dawn of January

• January 15th, 2017

Don't think it, don't say it, just review it. This week on The B-Movies Podcast, film critics William Bibbiani and Witney Seibold are turning their laser-focused gaze on the new horror thriller The Bye Bye Man, the bizarre family adventure Monster Trucks and Ben Affleck's ambitious mafia drama Live By Night. Two of these movies are great. The movie you probably assumed would be great from the outset is not. Fair warning.

Also this week, Bibbs and Witney say goodbye to the late, great Exorcist writer William Peter Blatty, and ponder all the biggest news stories of the week, including the future of General Leia in the Star Wars movies, casting news for Avengers: Infinity War, and the superstars who just might collide in Tim Burton's Dumbo.

Ep. 306 - The Worst Movies of 2016 (and Underworld: Blood Wars)

• January 8th, 2017

The worst movies of 2016 hurt us so freaking badly that we can't stop talking about them. This week on The B-Movies Podcast we're taking one last look back at a year of pain and suffering, with an in-depth analysis of why Assassin's Creed, Jason Bourne, Batman v Superman, Ben-Hur, Alice Through the Looking Glass, Suicide Squad, The Darkness and The Brothers Grimsby - to name just a few! - sucked so bad.

But before they take a look at the worst movies of 2016, film critics William Bibbiani and Witney Seibold have to say goodbye to the legendary actor Debbie Reynolds, who passed away right after they recorded last week's episode. And after the worst movies of 2016 they're diving headlong into 2017, with a review of the first major theatrical release of the year, Underworld: Blood Wars! Is it dumb fun or just plain dumb?

Ep. 305 - The Best Movies of 2016

• December 31st, 2016

They say it's been a bad year for movies, but they obviously haven't been paying attention. This week on The B-Movies Podcast, our critics William Bibbiani and Witney Seibold are debating their picks for the best movies of 2016! There were so many great films this year that their picks are really different, so you know there are going to be a lot of great movie recommendations on this week's episode.

Also on this week's B-Movies Podcast, before we get to the best movies of 2016, we're taking a look back at the awesome career of the late, great Carrie Fisher. (This episode was recorded after the passing of Carrie Fisher but before the tragic loss of her mother, Debbie Reynolds. We will make up for this next week.)
