Star Wars vs Marvel vs DC: Most Money Grossing Movies 1977-2019. An argument has erupted in which some argue there is too much film in Scorsese's films. Steve catches Viridiana. Andy catches Mr. Rogers. We do some re-ranking and deliver a list of nine solid black and white films! Pete's Trailer: Black Widow Steve’s Trailer: No Time To Die Andy’ ...…
 
“You know how to dial, don’t you? You just put your finger in the hole and make a tiny little circle.” When Steve Martin and Carl Reiner latched onto the idea of acting in a scene opposite characters in other movies, they thought it was pretty funny and thought it would be even funnier if they could do an entire movie that way. It took some wor ...…
 
Some rants about 'The Irishman' and +11 Pacinoæ. Andy and his Frozen conundrum. Steve is upset about Xfinity inviting E.T. to the house to watch some TV. Apple did one too. Netflix does the movies that made us. Pete's Trailer: True History of the Kelly Gang Steve’s Trailer: Three Christs Andy’s Trailer: Ride Like A Girl THE LIST! Comedians maki ...…
 
“I want to live in a world where the songs come true.” It may have seemed more strange at the time than it does now, but after his success of his comedy film The Jerk, comedian Steve Martin used his career momentum to next make… a depressing musical in which he’s a completely unlikeable character. In context of the career path that Martin has t ...…
 
SURPRISE! The Film Board snuck out and saw an advance screening this month, so we’re in spoiler Shangri-la to chat about “Knives Out” before its even officially released! It’s a traditional “whodunit” that Rian Johnson has packed full with family entanglements that make multiple money murder motives. There’s so many reasons we wanted to check t ...…

There are films that come and go without notice that are better than the majority of films currently playing at your local cineplex. A film like All About Nina is the reason we have Trailer Rewind. The challenge with describing what makes All About Nina such an entertaining and moving film is that it’s not one clearly identifiable standout elem ...…
 
“I don’t need anything… except this. This ashtray, and that’s the only thing I need is this. I don’t need this or this. Just this ashtray… and this paddle game.” Steve Martin was having great success as a comedian, but felt like he was at his peak and wouldn’t last very much longer if he didn’t push into another avenue. That other avenue, as it ...…

Pete’s Trailer: Fa ...…
 
Making a film about identical twin gynecologists after having two successful Hollywood films may seem like folly, or it may seem like exactly what a filmmaker like David Cronenberg would do. Cronenberg used the boost of success to get a complex, psychological drama made, and while it may not have paid off at the box office, it’s become an essen ...…
 
There is no living actor better than a dead James Dean, apparently. Kung Fury is now furiouser. Corridor Crew can see the future. Original Ghostbusters cast is coming back.

Music: "Monster Mash" (Bobby "Boris" Pickett ...…
 
“Television is reality, and reality is less than television.” There’s a film critic who called David Cronenberg ‘the thinking man’s genre filmmaker.’ If you look at the body horror films Cronenberg puts together, you will find that there is often a lot to unpack. They’re more artistic and have a lot more to chew on than most horror films. To th ...…
 
Pete showed up for the Godzilla effects and was rewarded in hero shots. Steve preps for Rewind with Nina. We start watching a few shows on tv+ and see the most expensive time travel forest ever documented on media. Is Disney vaulting everything again? Andy’s Trailer: Les Misérables Steve’s Trailer: Safe Spaces Pete's Trailer: Sorry We Missed Y ...…
 
David Cronenberg took a bit more of a science fiction route rather than straight-up body horror with his 1981 film Scanners. It didn’t have a personal connection like The Brood, his previous effort, either, so it stands out a bit in his work. That being said, the body horror elements certainly crop up in the gruesome effects he uses. But is he ...…
 
A series of 1-star reviews for things. Pirates is going to Chernobyl? Netflix testing variable playback speeds. Big box set for Little China. Go, NOW, Max for Studio Ghibli.

“Raglan encouraged my body to revolt against me… and it did.” After going through a difficult divorce and custody battle, David Cronenberg decided to integrate elements of that part of his life into his screenplay for The Brood. It’s not an obvious parallel to his life, but when you know it’s there, it’s easy to see. Does that integration of hi ...…
 
It's week three of our October Halloween Fright Fest Spooktacular and Dustin and Mike take to the roundtable to discuss James Whale's 1931 Universal Monster classic, Frankenstein, and Paul McGuigan and Max Landis' 2015 riff on Shelley's characters, Victor Frankenstein. Music: "Monster Mash" (Bobby "Boris" Pickett & the Crypt Kickers) "Prometheu ...…
 
It’s Deja vu all over again as The Film Board tackles a second sequel month in a horror realm. This one has a serious cast blasting away with comic relief in Zombieland: Double Tap. It’s been ten years since the original, and the marketing wasn’t shy about bringing up how its stars have shifted. So has anything changed in the land of Z since Em ...…
 
Apple signs Alfonso. Someone's suing someone over the Panama Papers... again. Kanye's new thing. $1000 to watch 30 Disney movies in 30 days? That's $33.333/movie!

When people familiar with the works of David Cronenberg view his 1979 film Fast Company, many are taken aback because it feels like an anomaly in his oeuvre. There is no body horror. It’s a straight up carsploitation movie. But to Cronenberg, he views it as one of his many children, and like kids, they each are their own unique being. For fans ...…
 
The challenge with historical films based on actual events is finding the right character to lead the audience through the story. JJ has made it clear that he will follow Jessica Chastain anywhere. Neither Steve nor JJ are aficionados of American history. While this is an interesting story to be told, they both failed to find an emotional conne ...…
 
Alien anniversary, plus expensive theatrical event re-releases. Star Wars cookware. Brief Joker commentary. Andy's still working through Stephen King adaptations, and good grief... there are a ton of Children of the Corn movies... it's the CotCCU! Disney looking to buy Spidey for $5 billion? Tom Hardy trolling with costumes. There are no Easter ...…

“I have to have blood. It’s all I can eat.” David Cronenberg seemed to continue from where he left off with his first theatrical feature film, Shivers, when he wrote his script for his next film. Certainly, there are differences, but largely, the stories have a lot of similarities. That being said, there are definite signs of growth for this st ...…
 
According to Scorsese, a tomato does not equal cinema. Spielberg partners with the upcoming streaming service Quibi with a new property you can only watch at night. Throwing money at Jason Bourne with a spin-off TV series and a new film. Free Guy is coming. Steve’s Trailer: The Gentleman Pete's Trailer: The Personal History of David Copperfield ...…
 
“Why not breed a parasite that can do something useful?” David Cronenberg has long been called the ‘king of body horror,’ which is a title that he came to early in his career. When looking at his first theatrical feature, Shivers, it’s perhaps easy to see why he was dubbed with this moniker, and also easy to see why it stuck. Join us – Pete Wri ...…
 
Mike and Dustin tackle the mystery of The Blair Witch Project on this week's roundtable discussion. Tune in to the podcast to find out if the found footage film that popularized a whole sub-genre of horror is determined to be a masterpiece or a museum piece of cinema.

“Rise and rise again until lambs become lions.” When Russell Crowe and Ridley Scott signed on to make Nottingham, a revisionist take on the Robin Hood myth that pitted a Sherlock Holmes-like Sheriff of Nottingham against the villainous Robin, little did anyone realize where it would end up. After years of rewrites, Scott had the version of the ...…
 
Somehow we missed Battle at Big Rock. Also, old news. We haven't been in the theater in a while. Steve insults Downton Abbey. Ad Astra isn't for space people. AMC doesn't know what "artisan" means.

Pulling off a good parody can be quite difficult. Mel Brooks has done it a few times, but he’s also made some lesser parody films that don’t quite hold up. So where did his sendup of the Robin Hood myths end up? Join us – Pete Wright and Andy Nelson – as we continue our Robin Hood series with Brooks’ 1993 film Robin Hood: Men in Tights. We talk ...…
 
After JJ’s stressful experience for September’s Film Board, he deserved something more comfortable and less stressful.

Every few years it seems, two films telling the same (or similar) story start production near the same time and inevitably, it turns into a race to see who gets to the box office first and who ends up the victor. Armageddon vs. Deep Impact. Antz vs. A Bug’s Life. Snow White and the Huntsman vs. Mirror Mirror. So when John Irvin’s film was set t ...…
 
Let’s go back to school with It Chapter Two, The Film Board made a pact last month that we’d return to Derry with the other losers if It came back. Well It’s here and in this one, the kids are all grown up with Jessica Chastain, Bill Hader, and James McAvoy playing our heroes. Will the sequel have the record-setting legs of its predecessor? Is ...…

Kevin Costner and Kevin Reynolds had been buddies from early in their careers before Reynolds directed Fandango, which starred Costner. Their friendship lasted for a decade before temporarily being waylaid by the production problems on Waterworld, but before their rift, they were called upon to make an update of the Robin Hood tale. The film re ...…
 
When Sean Connery agreed to star in The Death of Robin Hood, the James Bond star was thrilled to play a character where they wouldn’t ask him to come back for a sequel. But when the film was renamed Robin and Marian to be more marketable, did that affect the way the film was perceived? Or was the script reworked to try and capture the romance? ...…
 
Everything from the release date and the blurbs from critics told us this was going to be an Oscar contender. Nicole Kidman was delivering a performance unlike any we had seen from her before. Director Karyn Kusama had moved from film to television for nearly a decade until she returned with 2015’s The Invitation. Destroyer was a highly anticip ...…
 
Walt Disney had long been interested in telling the story of Reynard the Fox, but never could find the way to tell it that he thought would be palatable to kids. Because of that, it kept getting shelved. After Disney’s death, they finally found a way to integrate the anthropomorphic characters into an animated film. It wasn’t Reynard the Fox as ...…
 
The Film Board returns from hiatus this week and we figured that we’d welcome everyone back in by answering the question - “Where’d You Go, Bernadette?” now showing in theaters. The Richard Linklater film stars Cate Blanchett and is based on the book by Maria Semple. While the book is a collection of fictional correspondence meant to take the r ...…
 
It seemed fitting for Jack Warner and Warner Bros. to stick with a gangster picture for their big 60s musical. The fact that they tied the Robin Hood character into it was a pretty clever way to put a twist on it and make it stand out. And, of course, bringing Frank Sinatra and his Rat Pack on board made perfect sense – Frank, Dean Martin and S ...…
 
Tasmanian Errol Flynn had already proven himself a solid action star for Warner Bros. in films like Captain Blood, so when the dealings with James Cagney to play Robin Hood fell through, Flynn seemed like a logical choice. And it’s lucky for all of us that things went this way because Flynn created one of the most iconic portrayals of Robin Hoo ...…
 
Stories of Robin Hood, the nobleman who stole from the rich to give to the poor, go back for centuries, with tales as far back as the 1300s. The story has been told in countless ways, and when cinema was invented, filmmakers began telling this story on film. The first version was made in 1908, but the first one that really created an iconic cha ...…
 
Before Steve Rogers could do this all day, before Batman asked Superman if he could bleed, before Venom got weirdly obsessed with the pancreas, there was a superhero boom in the movies of the late 80s and early 90s that paved the way for the golden age we are presently experiencing. But how did these movies prepare audiences for seeing comic bo ...…
