The Cinema Psychos Show

This week, we are rolling out the perfect trick (or treat depending on how much you like this movie) with a trip back in time to the 80's.....we're not sure the year because the little gem of a movie we are reviewing may have been shot in  1984, 1985, and then released in 1986, 1987, and 1988.  The movie is the mutant mish mash that is SPOOKIES!  A movie you probably remember bits of pieces from during those late nights on TNT's Monster-Vision or USA's Up-All-Night from the 90's but never actually sat down to watch the whole film.  And why would this movie not be memorable?...

The Cinema Psychos Show

This week, John and Brian are back with a breakdown of a indie horror film just in time for Spooky Season.  Friend of the show, Steve Rudzinski has dropped the sequel to his 2016 magnum killer unicorn opus with CarousHELL The 2nd.  We try to remain fairly spoiler free on this one but be warned there are a few plot points dropped in this review that may be spoilery.  CarousHELL The 2nd is one of the rare movies that we've come across that fostered a pretty decent back and forth conversation over what worked and what didn't work, the role of story in films that feature over the...

The Cinema Psychos Show

This week, Brian and John break down the life and career of the king of the parody film.....No not the Zucker's and no not Naked Gun or Airplane.  We are instead talking about Mel Brooks.  A man who has helped shape comedy (and film history) with his fantastic wit in his ability to write and punch up scripts for TV, his parody films knocking everything from the western all the way to parodies of Dracula and Frankenstein, and funding and producing films that transcend cinema with credits for The Fly and The Elephant Man.  So join us for a "roll in the hay" as we break down the...

The Cinema Psychos Show

This week, we are back after a brief hiatus dropping one of our most introspective episodes to date.  Most of us have a deep down love of terrible cinema.  It's the demented gremlin cousin of the part of you that laudes the best director or best film of the year.  Deep down, we all love to watch an awesomely bad film.  But did you ever take a step back and ask yourself why you love terrible cinema?  That's the question Brian and John attempt to answer today.  What is it that drives us to revel in the bizzarre and often illconcieved world of bad movies? FROM THE...

Batman and Robin (1997): The Batman and Robin (1997): The "Wacky Deli" of Superhero Movies - Episode 220

The Cinema Psychos Show

This week's episode is 220 episodes in the making.  This week, we are closing out our long running review of the Tim Burton/Joel Schumacher Original Batman Series with 1997's Batman and Robin.  What is truly amazing about this cluster of neon, terrible acting, terrible story, puns, and camp galore is that this movie was the fear that fan boys had back in 1988 when Michael Keaton, at the time knkown for comedic roles, was cast.  A fear that Batman would return to the ridiculous and over the top parody as seen in the 1960's Adam West series.  This film is notable for being...

This week, we are hanging out at the mall as we take a look at the darker side of fashion...and comedy in the 2020 Canadian dark comedy horror film, SLAXX.  Slaxx is a movie that we all discovered while surfing Shudder and boy oh boy is it a bloody good time but also forces Laine and Brian to relive their deepest darkest memories of working in Retail Hell.  FROM THE CONCESSION STAND-  YOUTUBE SHOW!   We've got a brand new youtube show called "From The Concession Stand."  It is a biweekly look at all your favorite content coming from the world of streaming...

The Cinema Psychos Show

This week we are back after a brief break with an absolute first.  a new movie that will be inducted into the revered Pantheron of Utter S*#t!  The 90 minute long Warner Brothers Infomercial; Space Jam: A New Legacy.  A sequel to a movie that isn't as good as you remembered when you were 11 years old nor was it a sequel that we absolutely asked for.  Space Jam: A New Legacy features truly the apex of 'member berries  combined with by far some of the worst acting by not only Lebron James but also award winning actor and WAR MACHINE, Don Cheadle.  We really are...

The Cinema Psychos Show

This week, Brian and John tackle Marvel Studios' first foreay into the quagmire that is the post-pandemic movie landscape with Black Widow.  A movie that was late due to a pandemic but also about 5 years too late due to the bone-headed belief that female-led superhero films would not sell in a sea of space gods, hulks, iron men, and super soldiers.  The result is a movie that tries to make up for lost time that originally saw a character reduced to the quintessential "sexy lamp" in Iron Man 2 and only over the course of 8 years finally get some character developement in Avengers...

The Cinema Psychos Show

This week, we are celebrating the 4th of July the only way we know how. By breaking down one of the biggest parodies of American imperialism, 2004's Team America: World Police. A movie from the minds of Trey Parker and Matt Stone, probably the only people in the world who could make a movie that offends literally everyone yet still holds up as a fantastic parody of not only post 9/11 hysteria but also a parody of over the top Jerry Bruckheimer films. Do we think this movie could be made now a days....probably not, but if you're winding down from your backyard bbq and want to watch something...

This week, we are saying one final good bye to the unending maelstrom of misery and depression that was 2020 with PART 2 of our Year End Retrospective. There weren't a great deal of movies that came out during 2020 as we all were trying to divert our attention away from the doom scrolling with Tiger King or trying to master chess after watching Queen's Gambit. But the few offerings we did get deserve a little love......or hate. So we'll be breaking down our picks for the best and worst examples of cinema to come out of the year that broke Hollywood.
