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...

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...

Summer School (1987) - Movie Review - Episode 216 show art Summer School (1987) - Movie Review - Episode 216

The Cinema Psychos Show

This week, we are reliving our worst nightmares......high school. We are sticking around 1987 as we take a look at one of the rare teenage comedies from the era to actually not be completely gross out and full of adult jokes. We are of course talking about the 1987 blast from the past, Summer School. A movie that gave us Mark Harmon prior to joining the force of NCIS, Kirsty Alley before Cheers and Look Who's Talking, and Dean Cameron before Ski School. A movie that just might be more famous for a comedic scene of gross out gore than it is for having a music video featuring the voice of Tommy...

The Cinema Psychos Show

This week, Brian and John celebrate Father's Day in the only way possible; by reviewing a movie about a homicidal maniac who preys on single parent families in his search for the perfect family. We are of course talking about 1987's The Stepfather. An odd ball and much under appreciated slasher film that feels more like a slasher from the early 80's rather than the late 80's when stripped-sweatered dream killers and sadomascistic demons from a puzzle box were all the rage. Yet this film rises above all that and provides us with a smart and multi-layered horror film that touches on everything...

This week, Brian and John wear out our welcome in Las Vegas as we step out of the world of Nomi Malone and The Stardust and into the world of Alpha Zombies, Beta Zombies, and Bespectacled Batistas'. Yes, we are talking about the much talked about post Justice League Netflix-nugget from Zack Snyder: Army of The Dead. A movie that has divided people nearly as much as any Zack Snyder movie would. The argument this time being centered around just how much Ella Purnell's Kate Ward screwed the pooch for the entire crew during her "I gotta get my random friend" death wish scene. Or possibly whether...

This week, we are taking a look back at what might be one of the weirdest and most terrifying children's films that has probably led to the emotional scars for an entire generation of children.....no we aren't talking about Roald Dahl's Willy Wonka and The Chocolate Factory....we're talking about his 1990 follow up, The Witches! A movie that might just be Mr. Bean's only serious role and oh yea is 100% nightmare fuel. Dead parents...check. Horrifying witch practical makeup....double check. A plot that involves witches who murder children by turning them in mice.....triple check. Yup this movie checks all the nightmare fuel boxes yet somehow this movie is endeared by generations. So grab your Potion 86 and gobble down some Cress Soup as we dive into the weird and horrifying world of The Witches.
