099. La La Land
Does the ode to Hollywood work in our coverage this week with La La Land from 2016? A film that received 6 Oscar nods which stars Emma Stone and Ryan Gosling. Oh boy do we have a lot to say about this dancing musical with a whimsical flare. How is the 35mm and 16mm shot film converted to the digital 4K Disc…does it appeal to 4K’ers? Is this a beautifully vibrant transfer? Does the Dolby … CONTINUE READING

098. Bonus – Willy Wonka & The Chocolate Factory
Extra episode for you this week as we breakdown the 50th Anniversary Edition of Willy Wonka & The Chocolate Factory from Warner Brothers. This classic stars Gene Wilder, Jack Albertson, Denise Nickerson and Peter Ostrum as Charlie. A scrumdidilyumptious thank you goes out to Shawn Taylor from the mid-west for his request to cover the ins and outs of this 50-year-old movie and the 4K Disc quality. This is one of Shawn’s favorite films ever … CONTINUE READING
42:56 07/26/2021
097. Smokey And The Bandit
We cover the film that Jackie Gleason refused to take a percentage cut of the box office, instead…opting for a one-time check for his work on Smokey And The Bandit from the late 70’s. We do a detailed movie review and provide much love to many technical aspects including acting, cinematography, stunt-work and the “major” set piece, the 1977 6.6 liter V8 Pontiac Trans Am! Does this new 4K Blu-ray release warrant an upgrade? Has … CONTINUE READING
52:11 07/22/2021
096. Bonus – Deepwater Horizon
Pow! An extra episode for you this week! This fan recommendation is Deepwater Horizon, a “based on actual events” flick about the notorious oil spill from BP in the Gulf of Mexico. Stars include; Mark Wahlberg, Kurt Russell, Gina Rodriguez, John Malkovich and Kate Hudson (the step-daughter of Kurt). A cinematic thank you heads out to Lemarcus from Lansing, Michigan for his request for us to cover this one. He wants our impression of the … CONTINUE READING
40:04 07/18/2021
095. Mission: Impossible – Fallout
This episode SHOULD self-destruct according to BillChete as we cover the latest release in the Mission Impossible franchise, namely, Fallout or Part 6. This series is known for its epic action scenes and you get more of the same with this one. Tom Cruise is the Executive Producer along with being the featured star. There are a bunch of notable actors in this franchise and they are all quite talented. It’s the story and set … CONTINUE READING
50:19 07/15/2021
094. Ghost In The Shell
Just to be clear – we are covering the live-action rendition of Ghost In The Shell from 2017, and not any of the animated versions that came beforehand. Your hosts are like “deer in the headlights” on this one as we have never seen any previous iteration and didn’t know a smidge about this flick. This movie stars the talented Scarlett Jo, Pilau Asbaek and Takeshi Tikano. “In a world…lol” that is created far in … CONTINUE READING
46:09 07/08/2021
093. Bonus – The Birds
Start grilling some hot dogs and burgers while celebrating Independence Day with our extra release today playing on the Bluetooth speakers by the pool! We journey back almost 60 years on this one to a masterpiece by Alfred Hitchcock. We are not talking about Psycho, but The Birds, which stars Tippi Hedren, Rod Taylor, Jessica Tandy, Suzanne Pleshette and a young Veronica Cartwright. A flying high thank you goes out to Ross S. from Arizona … CONTINUE READING
53:21 07/04/2021
092. Joker
Oscar winner Joaquin Phoenix stars in Joker alongside the late night talk show host Murray Franklin played by Robert De Niro. You get to hear 2 sides of the coin on this show; one a huge fan of Batman, and one that couldn’t care less. Is this a good take on the Arthur Fleck character that has been around for decades? Is Batman in this film? Is this movie trying to make a point about … CONTINUE READING
53:23 07/01/2021
091. American Made
A based on real events flick is under the microscope this week on MOVIES in 4K. American Made has a major tonality issue according to one of the hosts, and to the other one…it just may be a mockery of the events that happened during the late 70’s into the mid 80’s all revolving around a drug-runner. This movie stars Tom Cruise playing Barry Seal and Domhnall Gleeson playing “Schafer”. Is this a film worth … CONTINUE READING
48:17 06/24/2021
090. Bonus – Lone Survivor
You guessed it…another extra fan pick for you…this time we cover a biographical war film named Lone Survivor, a flick that both the hosts were unaware of. This one has many first-rate stars, including; Mark Wahlberg, Taylor Kitsch, Ben Foster, Emile Hirsch, Alexander Ludwig and Eric Bana. A bombastic thanks goes out to Lemarcus from Michigan for his request. He thoroughly enjoys the acting chops of Ben Foster and wanted our opinion on the movie … CONTINUE READING
51:26 06/21/2021
089. A Quiet Place
The sequel is on the horizon so we figured it was a great time to cover A Quiet Place that was directed by and stars John Krasinski. This monster flick made a splash when it was released but do the hosts think it was well deserved? Which of your unflappable hosts thinks this is a “small” story? Are viewers and fans of this letting blaring faults go? Just how scary is this PG-13 horror film? … CONTINUE READING
43:18 06/17/2021
088. Bonus – Brawl In Cell Block 99
Bony Bonus time once again! On this one we plummet head first into an independent and quite unknown title of Brawl In Cell Block 99. This several years old RLJ Entertainment flick stars Vince Vaughn (the quirky comedian), Don Johnson (Det. Crockett of Miami fame) and Udo Kier (the bizarre horror star). A crushing thank you goes out to Sam from Snomonton for requesting us to review this bad boy as it is one of … CONTINUE READING

087. Men In Black
Get ready for a fun experience into an intergalactic alien romp with our review and grading this week on Men In Black starring Will Smith, Tommy Lee Jones, Linda Fiorentino, Rip Torn and basically an unknown actor at the time, Mr. Vincent D’Onofrio. Does the practical effects hold up today? How is the green-screening? Does the newly re-produced Dolby Atmos track add a new auditory level? Did Sony do justice to this masterpiece on the … CONTINUE READING
52:21 06/10/2021
086. Bonus – Beetlejuice
Betelgeuse the sarcastic, perverse and wicked ghost is under review this time around on an extra show! Michael Keaton knocks it out of the park, depicted as this rather rude and crude spirit. Both hosts agree that Catherine O’Hara is supremely underrated as an actress and performs at the top of the charts on her portrayal of Della. We also have pleasing acting chops by; Alec Baldwin, Geena Davis, and Winona Ryder. A triple-threat thanks … CONTINUE READING
41:00 06/06/2021
085. Jojo Rabbit
An Oscar nominated Picture-Of-The-Year is blathered upon this episode. Jojo Rabbit is the coverage and let the debate begin as the hosts vary vastly. Directed by and starring Taika Waititi who is well known among cinephiles. Is this movie disrespectful? Is the story “clever” or “ridiculous”? Is this comedic satire, “humorous” or “stupid”? Why does BillChete mention Jo Jo Dancer Your Life Is Calling? Is this movie filmed with old era cameras or modern day … CONTINUE READING
44:15 06/03/2021
084. Bonus – Requiem For A Dream
We love producing extra shows for all of the listeners and this is one of them! We summarize Darren Aronofsky’s big millennium hit while diving into Lionsgate’s 4K release. Requiem stars Ellen Burstyn whose performance was downright incredible. In addition, we get acting chops from Jared Leto, Jennifer Connelly, Marlon Wayans and Christopher McDonald. A dreamy thank you goes out to Sam for requesting this review and grading. He has not seen this movie on … CONTINUE READING
42:42 05/30/2021
083. Hustlers
This week we cover Hustlers, a movie that was inspired by real events. It stars Jennifer Lopez as a veteran pole dancer who turns to the dark side, along with Constance Wu, her sidekick in crime, playing a fresh, new and naïve young stripper. How is the mixture in the story of comedy and crime? Are the actors portrayal of nightclub workers any good? How about the soundtrack of popular songs, does it fit? Did … CONTINUE READING

082. The Lord Of The Rings: The Return Of The King
Clocking in at well over 3 hours we dive down deep into the final installment of The Lord Of The Rings franchise…Lady Phantom’s #1 movie ever filmed! This monumental flick is considered by most as the KING of the fantasy genre. We explain as much as possible about the story without diving into any spoilery topic. We then tackle technicals which for the most part are unparalleled even for todays time. We then march onto … CONTINUE READING
