TFR 100: Tra La Laaaaaaaaa! (w/Guest Zephyr)

Hello friends, and welcome to EPISODE 100, here at long last!!!

This week we have with us our most frequent guest, Ms. Zephyr! Together we talk one of the best low-key animated films of last year, the kid-centric movie adaptation of the smash hit books, Captain Underpants! Join us for some low-yet-highbrow fun!

You may be asking yourself: “Why did you choose Captain Underpants as your Episode 100? Well, we ask back: Why not? ALSO it was a ton of fun and spoke to our inner 8-year-olds, and don’t we need that?

TFR 95: Rogue Wonderful W/Guest Paul Andolina

I am one with the Force, the Force is with me, I am one with the Force, the Force is with me…

Welcome, Star Wars fans! We said we weren’t going to do a full episode on Rogue One, but well… we lied! Actually, this one is a much welcome Patreon request from Paul Adolina, who is also our guest!

So here we talk what makes Rogue One so special, namely that it’s a Star Wars movie with all the war movie tropes put in! All new characters (along with a few familiar faces), and a great story that was only hinted at in the main trilogy!

Come join us as we explore the most unique Star Wars film to date!

TFR 93: Steven of All Trades (w/Guest Shaun Higgins)

Hello, all! Say, it’s been a while since we’ve done a director retrospective, hasn’t it? It’s a big job, so we brought in mega Soderbergh fan Shaun Higgins to help us! (..okay, he suggested it and we agreed we were sorely lacking on Soderbergh coverage.)

Join us as we talk every experiment Soderbergh has done from The Girlfriend Experience to the Oceans films to The Informant! to Traffic to etc, etc. Each film may as well be its own genre of movie as different from one another as they are! So strap in as we explore the career of a true journeyman!

TFR 90: Easter Sunday (Ragsdale Finale)

Hello and welcome!

This week we pay tribute to our friend, filmmaker Harold Ragsdale, who went out in a literal blaze of glory when his hotel room caught fire on New Year’s Eve this last year. He had just that day supervised the final cut of what would turn out to be his final film, the religious ensemble Easter Sunday. Since it is a religious film, we of course brought in Thomas to help us out in picking this one apart. (We SWEAR we’ll have you on for a good film soon, Thomas).

Harold, this one’s for you! RIP, sir.

Bonus: a look at another, equally awful Christian epic from Sebastian Villegas.

TFR 83: Predestined (w/Guest AJ Muller)

As you may well know, Time Travel is an easy way to sell a film for us. Not always, but say it involves time travel, and we’re all “go onnnn..”. WELL strap in because this week have the mother (and father) of all time travel films to talk about, and we have a guest along for the ride!

We have columnist AJ Muller with us to talk Predestination! A movie that was seemingly dropped into the filmic landscape with no other explanation besides itself, Predestination is impossible to talk about with delving into MASSIVE spoilers, so be warned.. this cast is one giant spoiler. HOWEVER that’s not to say that knowing what happens prepares you for the film, because it does not. So grab your seatbelts folks, as we talk Predestination!

You can find AJ Muller’s writings at Daily Grindhouse as well as Horror View, where you can read his article on Predestination.
