Out Now Commentary: Blade Runner (1982)


Do podcasters dream of electric mics? Like tears in the rain, all of these commentaries may eventually fade away, but that shouldn’t stop you from checking out what this month’s fantastic discussion has to offer. Aaron is joined by Brandon Peters, Jim Dietz, and Yancy Berns to discuss Ridley Scott’s sci-fi/neo-noir classic, Blade Runner, starring Harrison Ford, Sean Young and Rutger Hauer, among others. For what it’s worth, the group is specifically discussing ‘The Final Cut’, though this is not a scene specific commentary for the most part. Instead, the guys cover a variety of topics concerning this landmark film that range from its initial reception, the legacy, the performances, and some thematic questions that go beyond the simplicity of whether or not Deckard is actually a replicant. Enjoy our discussions, arguments and tangents, as we had plenty to go over with this film. And don’t worry, there is no unnecessary narration.

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

Tom Cruise is back with American Made, a true life story given the cinematic treatment. It allows Cruise to play a regular guy for a change, which was refreshing.

Even bigger news, Out Now with Aaron and Abe has reached 300 episodes and we have an epic two-part podcast for you to listen to. Enjoy that and all the other reviews presented here this week.

Weekly Recap: Kingmsan 2, LEGO Ninjago, Battle of the Sexes & More!


Kingsman: The Golden Circle is facing off against The LEGO Ninjago Movie this week, and Battle of the Sexes is also around in a few theaters. That's a lot to enjoy, though I would only hope all the wild word of mouth for mother! will provide that film some more visits at the theater before it's gone. Meanwhile, this week's home releases feature some great flicks to see for sure. Be sure to check out the reviews I have there, as well as all the fun podcast work that we put together. Enjoy!

In Theaters Now:

Out Now 299: mother!


This week’s Out Now with Aaron and Abe delves into the wild mind of Darren Aronofsky. Aaron and Abe are joined by Terence Johnson and Joseph Braverman to talk mother!, the polarizing psychological thriller from Aronofsky, starring Jennifer Lawrence and Javier Bardem. This discussion goes over thoughts on the film and just how extreme it is to have earned such a low regard in the eyes of general audiences. Among topics covered, we have a fun round of Know Everybody (3:59), some Out Now Quickies™ (5:53), Trailer Talk for All the Money in the World (20:11), the main review (26:03), Out Now Feedback (1:00:37) and Games (1:18:11). We then wrap things up (1:24:05) and end on some bloopers (1:33:46), following this week’s close out song.  So now, if you’ve got an hour or so to kill…

Out Now Nights 14: Time for More of It


This episode of Out Now Nights (“Nights”) finds Aaron and Abe going over even more thoughts on the film It. With It currently destroying the box office, the guys figured a regular review was not enough. So get ready for this bonus critique, which delves more heavily into spoiler territory and features guests Peter Paras and Tyler Smith. Hear about what the group has to say about how effective the world, tension, characters and more were in relation to how each of these guys took the film as a whole. Be prepared for some personal stories that somehow relate to what was taken away from this Stephen King adaptation. And be ready to have more fun dealing with Pennywise and other topics.

Weekly Recap: mother!, American Assassin, Brad's Status & More!


There are a few new notable releases this week, but I doubt they're about to topple It at the box office. Regardless, mother! is pretty brilliant and Darren Aronofsky deserves all the credit for putting out something unlike anything else. American Assassin, on the other hand, is pretty awful. Ben Stiller also racks up more drama points with Brad's Status, but the film is so-so. Other than that, I have new home release reviews, in addition to the season finale review for Preacher. And be sure to check out our latest podcast episode, as it was a good one. Enjoy!

In Theaters Now:

(Aronofsky made one wild film that happens to also be one of the year's bests)

(Aggressively mediocre, which makes it worse)

(He'll be fine)

Out Now 298: It


This week’s Out Now with Aaron and Abe floats too. Aaron and Abe are joined by Brad Oman and Matt Goodman to talk It, the cinematic adaptation of Stephen King’s acclaimed horror epic. This discussion goes over the blockbuster hit and whether or not it was a good time at the movies that horror fans and those that like a coming-of-age story should be celebrating. Among topics covered, we have a fun round of Know Everybody (4:20), some Out Now Quickies™ (7:48), Trailer Talk for The Snowman (15:05), the main review (20:00), Out Now Feedback (1:12:56) and Games (1:37:45). We then wrap things up (1:46:00) and end on some bloopers (1:56:47), following this week’s close out song.  So now, if you’ve got an hour or so to kill…

Weekly Recap: It, Wolf Warrior 2 & More!


It has arrived. Relive your nightmares this weekend by seeing Stephen King's It in theaters. Well, at least that was the idea, as the film really felt more like an exercise in volume, despite some lively performances from the kids involved. Meanwhile, Wolf Warrior 2, the $825+ million international juggernaut, is the best pure action movie of the summer and should be seen on the big screen if given the chance. There were some home releases this week, though I only have a review for another great Criterion release (La Poison). Additionally, I have my weekly Preacher review and our epic Summer Gamble Results podcast. Enjoy!

In Theaters Now:

(Louder does not mean scarier)

(The best pure action movie of the summer)

Out Now 297: 6th Annual Summer Movie Gamble: RESULTS


This week’s Out Now with Aaron and Abe has reached the end of the vol. 2 mix tape. Abe and Aaron are joined by Mark Hobin, Markus Robinson and Alan Aguilera for the 6th Annual Summer Movie Gamble Results. The group goes over their opinions on the summer movie season, favorite films and, of course, who ended up winning (and losing) the competition. Among topics covered, we have thoughts on the summer in general (5:42), the main event (32:15), Out Now Feedback (1:44:00) and then wrap things up (1:52:00). There are also some bloopers (2:03:48), following this week’s close out song.  So now, if you’ve got an hour or so to kill…

Brief Thoughts: Wolf Warrior II


I really enjoy putting my reviews together.  I honestly wish I could delve deeper into certain movies, but alas, I get incredibly busy and can sometimes only deal with movies to a briefer extent than I would prefer.  This is why I write these occasional "Brief Thoughts" posts on films I have seen, as I want to at least offer some of my own perspective on them.  They may not be as polished, but I can at least get my opinions out there. This edition of "Brief Thoughts" features a mini-review of the international box office hit and Chinese action extravaganza Wolf Warrior II.

Wolf Warrior 2: 4 out of 5

Simply put, Wolf Warrior 2 is an action film not to be missed and the best pure action film of the Summer. A sequel to the 2015 film Wolf Warriors (not necessary to be seen to enjoy the sequel, but available on Netflix), Wolf Warrior 2 has a straightforward plot and little in the way of deep characterization. It matters not thanks to breathless pacing, wild action and a sense of fun that goes along with the over-the-top melodrama and sense of patriotism that actually adds to what makes the film a success. Here's a movie that is not afraid to celebrate its origins, while also going wild with the role of a hero that does the right thing when called to action.

Weekly Recap: Close Encounters, The Best Movies of the Summer & More!


For whatever reason, It is waiting until next week to open, instead of capitalizing off a three-day weekend. Regardless, Close Encounters of the Third Kind is the best release of this week (let alone the year if we're really thinking about it) and it should be an exciting film for anyone to see on the big screen again or for the first time. Additionally, I've written up a whole piece on the best films of the Summer. There are also new reviews for home releases and Preacher. And be sure to check out our great podcasts covering Alfred Hitchcock's The Birds and a topic worth exploring regarding millennials and classic films. Enjoy!
