The Film Basement Episode #6 - Digital Carries, Leagues Assemble, Theaters Crumble

On this week's episode of The Film Basement I am joined once again by Kevin Scott of the Films on Tap Podcast and a new voice enters the fray as Adam Corbett makes his first ever visit to the Basement.  Together we discuss Iron Fist, the future of Carrie Fisher in the Star Wars Universe, the theater going experience, The Carmichael Show's use of a certain N word, and what we thought of the Justice League trailer.  Raise the curtain, it's showtime!

The Film Basement Episode #5 - Top 5 Sports Films

In honor of the 40th Anniversary of the hockey comedy classic, SLAP SHOT, we are listing out Top 5 Favorite Sports Films.  With so many great films to choose from the decisions was not easy and, surprise, we have a bunch of honorable mentions.  To help me through this I am joined this week by Jimmy Stiles and Frank Hart of The Dopey Dudes Podcast

The Film Basement Episode #4 - LOGAN Review

17 years later and we find ourselves at the end of Hugh Jackman's run as Logan aka The Wolverine.  Through bad and great films, Jackman has always been solid bringing an intensity and emotion that most of the entries lacked.  Now at the final entry, the look and feel of LOGAN challenges all the previous films.  Here we have a noir western with a bleak outlook that features more battles mentally as they do physically.  How does it all shake out though?  Does Jackman get the swan song he deserves?  Me and Jeff Herch are going to discuss that very thing and the impact another R rated money maker could have on the industry.  Let's get to it!

The Film Basement Episode #3 - Split and Jackie Review

Two very different films to look at this week as Natalie Portman shines in Jackie and M. Night Shyamalan's latest offering gives us a great movie moment with with Split. Beyond those two specific pieces of larger puzzles though, do the films work as a complete canvas?  To help me make sense of what we saw, I find myself overjoyed to be joined by none other than Kevin Scott of the Films on Tap Podcast!  Let's go!

The Film Basement Episode #2 - Talking 4K with Pogo

There are a lot of questions surrounding the current state of 4K from the consumer perspective.  Is it worth my money?  What is it exactly?  What tech is the best?  What about gaming in 4K?  It goes on and on and on but ultimately the most important question is whether now is the right time to invest.  In an attempt to answer this question I asked one of the smartest folks I know to help me out.  His name is Nick Bertke, but you many know him better as Pogo.  Nick's music has been one of the flagship's of this podcast and Disney Magic Hour.  Every week we are led in and led out at the close by his sound.  Nick was able to take time out of his very busy schedule to sit with me, via Skype, and discuss our feelings on the 4K push as we are both early adapters in the format.  We cover A LOT in a relatively short amount of time from streaming capabilities, 4K bluray's, gaming, and how best to measure if it's worth your hard earned dollar to jump into the pool yet.  We have much ground to cover so let's go! It's showtime!
