Weekly Recap: Newport Beach Film Festival, Free Fire & More!



Well here we are, a weekend before the summer movie season hits and things always stay interesting. I've provided several reviews from The Newport Beach Film Festival and a review for last week's release, Free Fire, but nothing yet for the few new releases that arrived. That said, while I've heard lots of bad about The Circle, I am looking forward to catching Sleight the first chance I get. Additionally, be sure to check out the La La Land Blu-ray review I have here, along with our great new podcast episodes. Enjoy!

Weekly Recap: Newport Beach Film Fest, Lost City of Z & More


This week offered up a mixed set of new releases, but my larger concern is for the 18th Annual Newport Beach Film Festival, which I will be covering for the next week. That said, I will be catching up on Free Fire when I get the chance and will add a review to go with it. The Promise is actually interesting as well, though I'm hearing it's a better film to talk about than to actually see. Still, given the topic that is not often covered in films (Armenian genocide) and the independent nature of the film, I do want to see what it has to offer at some point. Other than that, there are a couple new home releases I have reviews for and another really fun podcast. Enjoy!

Out Now Commentary: The Running Man (1987)


This month’s Out Now with Aaron and Abe commentary track is a game nobody survives, but Schwarzenegger has yet to play. Aaron and Abe are joined by guests Jim Dietz and Brandon Peters to go over the sci-fi action/satire The Running Man, starring the Austrian Oak himself. The group goes into what makes this Paul Michael Glaser film an interesting 80s touchstone with plenty in common with modern times. Be prepared for lots of fun facts about the film, stories surrounding the search for a director, Sven-Ole Thorsen sightings and the general fun and tangents you expect when it comes to these episodes. Get ready to play; as this is no rerun, this is the podcast covering the murderous game show that took a nation by storm.

Important Note:  This commentary may feature both juvenile uses of language and jokes that may be considered un-PC.  We of course are just trying to have a fun time…

So now, if you’ve got an hour to kill…

There's only so much to say, as it is just exciting to get a new Star Wars trailer, but thanks to Star Wars Celebration in Orlando, the big reveal has finally come. This December sees the release of Star Wars: The Last Jedi, Episode VIII, which is written and directed by Rian Johnson and starring everyone you'd expect, plus some fresh blood. Go watch that and then come back.

Get your engines ready, as it's time for another round with Vin Diesel and the gang. The F8te of the Furious is the latest entry in the ongoing franchise and it delivers on the silly fun you'd expect, even if it is a come down from the previous film. In limited release, The Lost City of Z also opens this weekend and is certainly one to look out for.

Weekly Recap: Gifted, Colossal & More!


Given a lack of desire on my part to take in Smurfs or Going in Style, my recap is limited to films only in limited release. That in mind, Gifted and Colossal are certainly films I'm happy to recommend. One plays it fairly safe, while the other is a strange mash-up of genres, but they do their jobs in the entertainment department. Additionally, some solid home releases this week along with a great podcast available to listen to. Enjoy!

(It's charming enough)
