Film Fumblers

Four friends fumble through your favorite films with their favorite drinks.

Tracks

Loving Vincent
This week we’re talking about the visually stunning Loving Vincent. A mind blowing 65,000 hand painted frames from 125 artists created this film, but we couldn’t help but think the narrative of what those paintings showed was a little lackluster.  We wished the same amount of detail that went into the animation was consistent throughout the project, but either way watch it for the paintings alone.Fumbler Score 7.1/10filmfumblers.com for all our links!►Follow us on Twitter! - twitter.com/filmfumblers►Follow us on Twitch! - twitch.tv/filmfumblers►Send comments and movie suggestions to filmfumblers@gmail.com

Perfect Blue
In 1995, a tragic earthquake hit Japan and destroyed the movie studio that would have produced a live-action version of Perfect Blue. Production was stopped and funds were reallocated to create a shorter animated version of the film. Tragedy birthed one of the most original, influential, and most talked about anime films of all time. Satoshi Kon's brilliance inspired a generation of film makers and brought the world into the life of an IDOL. This was a fun (trippy) watch for us and really got us thinking about streamer/idol/celebrity culture that we see today. Fumbler Score: 8.6/10filmfumblers.com for all our links!►Follow us on Twitter! - twitter.com/filmfumblers►Follow us on Twitch! - twitch.tv/filmfumblers►Send comments and movie suggestions to filmfumblers@gmail.com

Shrek
We’re here with our first movie of aniMAYtion Shrek! It’s one of those movies that you don’t get tired of, and that’s not just nostalgia talkin. Even though the story is simplistic, the comedic timing, Disney commentary, and hell even the animation after 21 years make this baby a classic. We were surprised how well it’s held up.Fumbler Score: 9/10filmfumblers.com for all our links!►Follow us on Twitter! - twitter.com/filmfumblers►Follow us on Twitch! - twitch.tv/filmfumblers►Send comments and movie suggestions to filmfumblers@gmail.com

The Northman
Robert Eggers is back with his 3rd film The Northman. Eggers finally gets some budget to play around with, and it really shows from the amazing cinematography, breathtaking back drops, and top notch acting. We were a little split on the Shakespearean-esque story, however.  But if you wanna just watch buff dudes be guys, this is it.Fumbler Score: 7.8/10filmfumblers.com for all our links!►Follow us on Twitter! - twitter.com/filmfumblers►Follow us on Twitch! - twitch.tv/filmfumblers►Send comments and movie suggestions to filmfumblers@gmail.com

Everything Everywhere All at Once
It's always a special moment when you're experiencing a film and you just know it's going down as one of the GOATs. That's exactly what happened to us with Everything Everywhere All at Once. One moment you're crying from all the laughter and the next you're laughing from all the crying. The Daniels masterfully blended batshit crazy visuals with profound relate-ability. How, you ask? I don't know man, you just gotta see it to believe it.Fumbler Score: 9.7/10.....our highest rated film ever btwfilmfumblers.com for all our links!►Follow us on Twitter! - twitter.com/filmfumblers►Follow us on Twitch! - twitch.tv/filmfumblers►Send comments and movie suggestions to filmfumblers@gmail.com

The Batman
Another decade, another new actor in the Batman suit. Matt Reeves takes this one in the most grounded direction he could, but did it work? We enjoyed the look and feel of Gotham this time around, but not everything else clicked with us as a group. A lot of the problems can be dismissed by the fact that this Bruce has only been the Bat for a couple years, but only Taryn is fully convinced. Overall we liked Battinson! The runtime is going to be a point of contention for everyone, especially since its only 8(!) minutes shorter than Endgame can you believe that!Fumbler Score: 7.0filmfumblers.com for all our links!►Follow us on Twitter! - twitter.com/filmfumblers►Follow us on Twitch! - twitch.tv/filmfumblers►Send comments and movie suggestions to filmfumblers@gmail.com

C'mon C'mon
C’mon C’mon is a movie that invites the audience to reflect. It paints familiar scenarios from both adult and child perspectives, and it rolls slowly letting you really bathe in the moments the characters are flowing through. The camera work is beautiful, with slow subtle movements and black and white presentation to minimize distractions and offer a layer of removal from reality. Yet reality is sprinkled throughout with unscripted interviews from kids around the country concerning their future. There are no huge story arcs and also no real moments of sentimentality or emotional manipulation, yet we still managed to leave this one feeling some type of way. C’mon C’mon enters the Fumbler Hall of Fame with a 9.1!filmfumblers.com for all our links!►Follow us on Twitter! - twitter.com/filmfumblers►Follow us on Twitch! - twitch.tv/filmfumblers►Send comments and movie suggestions to filmfumblers@gmail.com

Don't Look Up
Don’t Look Up has been the subject of some controversy. Some calling it genius for exposing the government/Hollywood/Billionaires, and others seeing it as picking at low hanging fruit not revealing anything we didn’t already know. We try to unpack both sides and wonder if satire can work in this day and age when life is already absolutely bonkers.Fumbler Score: 5.7filmfumblers.com for all our links!►Follow us on Twitter! - twitter.com/filmfumblers►Follow us on Twitch! - twitch.tv/filmfumblers►Send comments and movie suggestions to filmfumblers@gmail.com

Scream (2022)
Hey Happy New Year! We’re finally back after some rest and relaxation to slash it up with Scream (2022). We didn’t expect this movie to work so well but somehow it’s pulled off. Maybe it’s the direct shots at critics and toxic fandoms and we don’t wanna be grouped in with them. It’s hard to throw in meta thing without it being too cringey, but this was done with so much fun. Will it age well? Maybe, maybe not. We’ll see when they requel it in 10 years.Fumbler Score: 8.3/10filmfumblers.com for all our links!►Follow us on Twitter! - twitter.com/filmfumblers►Follow us on Twitch! - twitch.tv/filmfumblers►Send comments and movie suggestions to filmfumblers@gmail.com

Spider-Man No Way Home
We’re swinging through December and that means more holiday movies. Yes, Spider-Man: No Way Home features a Christmas tree for like 3 seconds, so it counts. The hype surrounding this one was real, and dammit Marvel & co managed to pull it off! Our guests @matkinz and @jayrenteriuh help us decide whether this is a good movie or just a good marvel movie. Our score isn’t bright and shining, but this doesn’t mean we didn’t have a blast watching this bad boy in theaters. WATCH IT IN THEATERS AND AVOID SPOILERS AT ALL COSTS. You’ll be rewarded with the sweet sounds of the audience screaming. Fumbler Score: 7.6/10filmfumblers.com for all our links!►Follow us on Twitter! - twitter.com/filmfumblers►Follow us on Twitch! - twitch.tv/filmfumblers►Send comments and movie suggestions to filmfumblers@gmail.com #SpiderManNoWayHome #review #podcast

The Nightmare Before Christmas
We’re continuing our holiday theme with Nightmare Before Christmas. Contrary to popular belief it’s not even directed by Tim Burton, he just kind of gave some general ideas and kicked holes in the walls when things didn’t seem right. We only know this because @jayrenteriuh our guest of honor this week is like a walking encyclopedia for this movie. We love stop-motion animation and we don’t care who knows. Put any in front of us and it’s gettin’ in the Fumbler HOF.

Elf
Somehow...It's December again...And we're kicking off the holiday season with Elf! Let's be honest, Will Ferrell carried the hell out of the one. We can't imagine anyone pulling off Christmas spirit incarnate the way he did. They managed to pull off this concept by balancing both adult and kid friendly humor, but also rely heavily on Christmas movie tropes. Not our favorite, but just the right amount of nostalgia to give us that warm fuzzy holiday feeling.Fumbler Score 7.5/10filmfumblers.com for all our links!►Follow us on Twitter! - twitter.com/filmfumblers►Follow us on Twitch! - twitch.tv/filmfumblers►Send comments and movie suggestions to filmfumblers@gmail.com

12 Angry Men
This week we visit our oldest reviewed movie yet, 12 Angry Men (1957) A classic in every sense of the word. We went really deep with this one because it seems that despite being 64 years old not much has changed in America. It sort of left us feeling somewhat hopeful, but also somewhat disappointed that prejudice is still prevalent today. If anything we came out agreeing this should be a mandatory watch for all, not just in a film sense, but in a sense of compassion. Fumbler Score: 8.8filmfumblers.com for all our links!►Follow us on Twitter! - twitter.com/filmfumblers►Follow us on Twitch! - twitch.tv/filmfumblers►Send comments and movie suggestions to filmfumblers@gmail.com

Dune
Hey, how you Dune? We're finally dune Dune after a month of horror flix and a little break off. Dune, the illustrious novel that many have tried time and time again to adapt to film, but never as successful as Denis Villeneuve. What can we say, big ass space ships, big ass worms, big ass sound. Is BIGGER better? We seem to think so.

American Psycho
Do you like American Psycho? Although originally polarizing to audience in critics alike it developed a much deserved cult following when released on Digital Video Disc or DVD. There it found new life and came into its own commercially and artistically. The movie works both as a an examination of male vanity while also maintaining real genre thrills, justifying these tonal shift by placing the audience into the mind of the main character. The role almost went to Leo but we think Bale has a more bitter, cynical sense of humor. The movie itself is so polarizing most people probably don’t even listen to the message. But we think they should, because it’s not just about the killing and psychotic breaks, but a personal statement of the horrors of 80s corporate culture. Anyways, that wraps of horror month for us.Fumbler Score 8.8Special thanks to our guest of honor @jamallen89!filmfumblers.com for all our links!►Follow us on Twitter! - twitter.com/filmfumblers►Follow us on Twitch! - twitch.tv/filmfumblers►Send comments and movie suggestions to filmfumblers@gmail.com

Scream
Yo dawg, I heard you liked scary movies, so we put a scary movie inside your scary movie so you can scary movie while you scary movie. We’re back at it again with Wes Craven’s 1996 meta-slasher classic Scream. We were feelin a little woozy with this one…some of us loved the meta humor while others felt it took away from what was trying to be a somewhat serious slasher. Definitely one that’s better watching with friends and if you have a little bit of knowledge about the genre as a whole, but still a blast to watch! Fumbler Score: 7.2filmfumblers.com for all our links!►Follow us on Twitter! - twitter.com/filmfumblers►Follow us on Twitch! - twitch.tv/filmfumblers►Send comments and movie suggestions to filmfumblers@gmail.com

The Exorcist
Alright, listen, The Exorcist is a bonafied c l a s s i c and we knew that. But what we didn’t know is how well the damn thing holds up today. The gripping realism of each characters’ lives makes some of us question our reality…is this something that could really happen to us??

Malignant
THE BACKWARDS MAN, THE BACKWARDS MAN, I CAN WALK BACKWARDS AS FAST AS YOU CAN...This week we dive into the creative mind of James Wan's Malignant. The tone in this one is all over the place. We're led to believe this movie was supposed to be taken seriously, but then we end up with something goofy and honestly just plain fun. Some of us question Wan's intentions, but others feel like Wan is giving a huge middle finger to "traditional" horror and just having fun with misdirection. Is Wan gonna bust out another dominating horror franchise and bring Gabriel's parkour-slashin-karate kickin-ass back for another one??!!

Another Round
Today we are joined by Fumbler Friend of the show: Nater! This week, it's Another Round, directed by Thomas Vinterberg. This is a film that was basically made for us. It follows four friends who fumble through life, by jacking up their BAC in an attempt to spark a little fiery passion back into their lives. It's super well made, it has beautiful shots, it has ups and downs, and it's all in Danish! So, should you be able to get past the barrier of subtitles, you will be rewarded with a film that is really special. But not special enough to make the Fumbler Hall of Fame... *cough* James *cough* Adrian *cough*Cheers brothers.Fumbler Score: 8.86Should you also want to spice up your life and jack up that BAC, check out our new web series: Fumbled Not Stirred!

Shang-Chi and the Legend of the Ten Rings
Shang-Chi and the Legend of the Ten Rings, directed by Destin Daniel Cretton, was an unexpected surprise from Marvel. There were certainly formulaic elements that we've come to expect, but there was also some real homage here to the martial arts genre as a whole. The choreography is what really drove this home for us though, it was complex and beautiful. Mad props to Simu Liu, who has taken the internet by storm (check out his old stock photos), and for good reason!Fumbler Score: 7.7Check out our new web series: Fumbled Not Stirred!

Memoirs of a Geisha
This week we visit pre-WWII Japan in Memoirs of a Geisha. This movie… is well… a doozy. Based off the controversial fictional novel of the same name, both versions try to grasp at Japanese sub-culture through a western lens. We get to feast on beautiful set design and costumes, and of course John Williams masterful score, but the jumbled mess of melodrama and the creepy “romance”  makes this movie nothing but pretty makeup on a turd. It also has us wondering why the hell the damn movie isn't in Japanese??Fumbler Score: 5.7Check out our new web series: Fumbled Not Stirred!

Raiders of the Lost Ark
Raiders of the Lost Ark, directed by Stephen Spielberg, is nothing short of iconic. It practically defines the adventure genre, and feels almost fairy tale like at this point. It helps that Harrison Ford is one bad ass mf, and John Williams is another bad ass mf, and always brings a soundtrack that slaps and fits right into the atmosphere of the story.

The Big Lebowski
The Big Lebowski sits in that weird place where it's defined some aspects of our culture and is pretty well known, but hasn't really reached a massive audience, yet most people know lines from the movie, or at the very least have heard of The Dude. The Coen Brothers nailed something special with this one; it's a film built up and carried by incredible characters (played by an incredible cast), with no details spared, and an overall vibe that is unmatched. And the vibe is really why you watch (and re-watch) this movie.

Chef
Jon Favreau's Chef is a feel-good movie that is well worth the watch. For some, it refuels the creative drive and sparks inspiration in a mental space that is otherwise consumed with "what if's" and self doubt. It's a story of a person doing a thing, a thing he can do really well, perhaps the only thing he can do really well, and sharing that thing with the people he loves. So grab a Cubano and join us!

The Godfather Part II
We did The Godfather back in June of 2020 (which was Episode 16!!!), over a year ago. It's a little crazy to think that we've kept at this for so long, much less revisited a series in our first ever Sequel Episode! We once again enter the mind of Francis Ford Coppola and hit the streets with a present day Don Michael and young Don Vito in The Godfather Part II! This may be one of the few sequels to actually hold a candle to the original. Collective Fumbler Score: 8.8In this episode, we made The Godfather cocktail to set the mood!

Old
In this episode, where we try to keep with the times and keep shit current, we talk about M. Night Shyamalan's Old. Staring some familiar Fumblerverse faces (Thomasin McKenzie & Alex Wolff), Old has a really interesting concept that just isn't executed well. That doesn't necessarily make for a bad movie, and it's a ton of fun with friends, but it doesn't quite stack up to his arsenal of movies. And this is the dude who made The Sixth Sense.Collective Fumbler Score: 5.23Next week, we are watching The Godfather Part II!

Space Jam: A New Legacy
We are back and live in person for the first time in 60 EPISODES. 60! That's some crazy shit. Space Jam: A New Legacy, directed by Malcom D. Lee was... pretty rough to watch. They definitely did not have us in the first half, but the second half was actually not terrible! The self deprecating jokes definitely made it bearable, and Lebron James did much better than most thought he would, but this one doesn't hold a candle to the original. Perhaps it's because we're a group of late 20's men(children), perhaps it's because it's kind of an hour and 50 minute ad, or perhaps, just maybe, we forgot how to have fun...Yeahhh, it's not that, we have fun and we had a blast making this episode!Collective Fumbler Score: 3.975Next week, we have no idea what we are going to watch!

Space Jam
Space Jam, directed by Joe Pytka, is a double or triple serving of buttery hot nostalgia. We were surprised at the amount of lines, scenes, and Michael Jordan fan cams we remembered, and most (if not all) of us hadn't seen this movie since we were little kids. The soundtrack slaps, the acting is pretty rough, Bill Murray is incredible, and the humor is actually funny now that we watched it again as adults. That doesn't necessarily make it a good movie, but it will always hold a special place in our hearts.

Independence Day
Independence Day, directed by (a German guy) Roland Emmerich, lies in that weird space between the era of great practical's and the new age of incredible visual effects, but still pulls off being a fun flick with some witty lines and interesting character dynamics. It may not be something we watch every holiday (like Die Hard on Christmas 😉), but it has a certain charm that's hard to deflect. In fact, some people think it's so good, they haven't stopped poppin' off fireworks (lookin' at you, neighbors)!Collective Fumbler Score: 7.1Next week, we are prepping for the new one and doing Space Jam!

Brokeback Mountain
We are back, and joined by Alonso, to round out June with Brokeback Mountain, directed by Ang Lee, is an important film/empathy machine for most people to see. It offers a lens into the struggles of being gay and having to hide or bury your expressions of love and affection deep within, always being afraid or having some amount of fear about certain people (or anyone) finding out. It's powerful, and though not perfect, it helped in the increasingly more widespread acceptance of the those in the LGBTQ community. Happy Pride y'all!
