The Cinema Psychos Show

This week, Brian and John try to analyze the age old conflict between nerds.....Star Trek vs Star Wars.....I mean Practical FX vs CGI.  Yes a war that has been waged  on between cinephiles in the lobbies of movie theaters across the world since 1993.  But why do these techniques in creating the fantastical have to be polar opposites?  Why is there so much love for what arguably are less realistic and more expensive practical fx and so much vitrol and critique over computer generated visual effects?  Is there room in the big tent of filmmaking for both of these camps?...

This week, John and Brian sit in some group therapy as we examine the loss of their childhood with the newest dinosaur-sized turd in the form of Jurassic World: Dominion. This movie has it all:  a ridiculous plot, phoned in "member berries in the form of vintage Jurassic Park characters showing up, and all the dinosaur action that a bloated hollywood cash grab can muster.  Despite all that, the real question we all have is how can a movie franchise fall so low?  How can you start off with a movie that captured the imaginations of billions with cutting edge CGI that changed the...

This week, John and Brian dust off their sling rings as they re enter the world of marvel with it's newest entry (no not Thor Love and Thunder....or Ms. Marvel....Or Moon Knight....way too many marvel properties).  No we'll be talking about Doctor Strange In The Multiverse of Madness...That's right Doctor Strange in his own movie and not just a discount Iron Man in someone else's movie.  This time around, the Doctor battles the entire multiverse in a bizarre movie that includes zombies, giant one eyed monsters (hehe), and Bruce Campbell.  So grab your Pizza Balls from Pizza...

When you think of gross out/sex comedies of the 2000's-2010's; What films come to mind?  Do you automatically go to such classics  like "Road Trip".  Or perhaps you are a bit more sophisticated and prefer to sing "Scotty Doesn't Know!" as you binge watch Euro Trip for the 50th time.  Or maybe there is a deep dark crevace in your DVD rack that holds one of the most unfunny and purely vile films to grace the silver screen.....No its not 500 Days of Sodom.  Its 2013's "MOVIE 43."  A movie that some might view as a practical joke played on both the actors in the film...

After a bit of a break, we are back with a brand new episode.  And after our foray into high cinema with last episode's extensive review of "The Batman".  We figured we had to follow up such a high mark in cinema with a complete turd of a movie.  Kinda like having your delicious taco bell then suffering for it about an hour or so later.  And boy of boy do we have a stinker this week.  What happens when you combine a bunch of c list actors with Kelsey Grammer, The Laurence Brothers, and Edge fro WWE?  You get 2020's hot mess, "Money Plane".  A movie that begs...

This week, Brian and John don't just emerge from the shadows, they are the shadows.....well not quite.  More like they emerged from the shadows of a movie theater with smilex gas grins across their faces after seeing Matt Reeves' "The Batman".  Fair warning, this review does contain some spoilers.  So if you have yet to see the film, please check it out first.  But with this being the 3rd batman to be introduced in less than 20 years, does this version of the caped crusader hold up against the down to earth version of Bale's Batman or the roided up part time leader of the...

This week, we are back with a long long long overdue breakdown of the year that was 2021.  Yes it's March and yea this is usually the time of the year when we pull a bad Leprechaun movie to review...but 2021 was full of so much insanity, how could we not spend some time talking about it.  How much insanity do you ask?  Well we've got everything from the tragedy and revolt of film workers to those we lost....and those we cancelled.  As well as the highest grossing and lowest grossing films of the year.  So put away the spring cleaning for just a minute, as we take a...
