This week, we've got a special treat for you all.  The past month, we've been working with The 48 Hour Film Project - Pittsburgh, the city chapter of the world wide contest of filmmakers who all compete on a given weekend to produce a short film from the ground up within 48 hours based on a provided character, prop, and line of dialogue.  This year, we assisted in hosting a live stream for their wrap party where we interviewed tons of local filmmakers to see just how their weekend in the filmmaking crucible ended up.   Special thanks to City Producer PJ Gaynard, JP Lavoie,...

This week's movie is one that we have actively avoided since 2016.  This week, we are tackling, with the help of Dustin and Nathan of The Silver Lining's Playlist Podcast, 2011's Jack & Jill.  A movie so bad that it hurts our brains.  Why does this movie suck so bad you might ask?  Could it be the fact that Adam Sandler plays a female version of himself who's running gag is farting and pooping in every scene?  Could it be the MASSIVE amounts of product placement that make this film feel like the bumper of a Nascar race car?  Or could it be the sheer level of...

The Cinema Psychos Show

This week, after a bit of a break for our live show for the 48 hour film project in Pittsburgh, we are back to look at a filmmaker that has managed to constantly merge genres with a massive talent in using all the tools of the trade to visually tell a story.  We're talking about Edgar Wright.  The filmmaker behind Shaun of The Dead, Hot Fuzz, and Baby Driver.  A technical wizard and a master of filmmaking choreography.  However, a massive talent like Edgar Wright requires a massive talent to assist in the review, so we are joined by fellow film podcaster, Sophia Ricciardi...

The Cinema Psychos Show

This week after our descent into the Breenpocalypse (seriously check episode 267 for our therapy session) we needed a serious pallete cleanser.  For us that came in the form of the 2004 film, The Ladykillers.  Deridded by critics and fans of the often celebrated Cohen Brothers, this remake of the 1955 british comedy about criminals robbing a casino by tunnelling through an elderly woman's basement is chock full of so many off the wall and darkly comedic moments.  From the need for waffles, Tom Hank's doing his best Foghorn Leghorn impression, to a yet to be super famous J.K...

"Please God make it stop.."  Those words were inside our heads the entire time that we watched this week's movie, Twisted Pair.  A movie by our favorite cultivator of cinematic crap, Neil Breen.  And boy oh boy, this one was bad.  Never did we think that we would long for the days of tuna, laptops, and magic rocks...but leave it to everyone's favorite god, alien, humanoid, cyborg-jesus; we started to miss the old day's of Breen.  Instead what we were left with was a bizarre green screen hellscape that then splits it's time with an abandonded community college in...

This week, we are taking a bizarre pipe down to the neon colored, member-berry filled world of The Super Mario Bros Movie!  No, not that dystopian nightmare about trusting the fungus while Dennis Hopper searches for a meteroite.  (Check out Episode 9 for that one).  We are talking about the NEW NEW animated one that actually does a pretty decent job at portraying a video game about two brothers battling koopas, evil turtles, and Kongs.  But a movie of this magnatiude requires some special guests to tackle it and boy do we have some fantastic guests.  Cincinatti's own...

Happy Easter...Passover...or just day that happens to end in "Y".  This week, we are celebrating one of the hallmark films of the 1970's that can be credited with birthing a great deal of the comedy that we all take for granted.  1979's Life of Brian is a brilliant satire that pokes fun at everything from the concept of religion to the tenets of politics.  For it's time, the film was attacked by religious groups and even banned in the UK (a genuine Video Nasty).  But has retained a status as an influentential piece of satire that has gone on to be referenced in everything...

This week, we are a little bit late to the party on this film, but we had to do an episode on Leprechaun 3 last week in honor of St. Patrick's Day.  That aside, we are talking about the newest entry into the long running Rocky Cinematic Universe, CREED III.  The third outing of Michael B. Jordan's Adonis Creed as he fights for his legacy against the physical embodiment of his past in Johnathan Major's, "Diamond" Damian Anderson.  This film marks Michael B. Jordan's directorial debut and based on the strength of this movie, we can't wait to see more.  However, this film...

It's St Patty's week and as is tradition, we here at The Cinema Psychos Show celebrate the holiday not by drinking green beer and eating shepard's pie....but by visiting our old friend THE LEPRECHAUN!  And this time around we are taking a look at what might be the best of the sequels in this series, 1995's Leprechaun 3!  A movie that clearly knows how ridiculous the concept of the first 2 were and decides to fully embrace the ridiculous by putting our favorite leprechaun in glittering LAS VEGAS (AKA a Los Angeles sound stage and 1 night in actual Las Vegas for exteriors).  So...

More Episodes

This week, we are celebrating our 250th episode with a look at what is arguably considered one of the scariest horror films of all time; The Exorcist.  The 1973 movie by William Friedkin that was so terrifying that it led to people fainting in theaters and enraging  the religious right in the early 70’s.  But does this movie truly deserve the title of scariest film?  And is it really Anti-Catholic?  Well saddle up, cause we are going in deep as we analyze the world of Pazuzu with our review of The Exorcist.
