True Bromance Film Podcast
Two completely uneducated movie lovers, Barry and Jairo, try to find time to discuss films while yelling at each other.
info_outline Mortal Kombat 05/18/2020
Mortal Kombat There is a common debate that is meant to identify you. Are you a Beatles person or a Rolling Stones person? We don't think that debate is sufficient so we are asking you the definitive question: are you a Street Fighter person or a Mortal Kombat person. In this episode, we travel to Outworld and attempt to decide what team we land on, once and for all.
info_outline X-Men 05/13/2020
X-Men Normally, we would be lined up around the movie theater while waiting to get into the latest massive superhero offering. As we are (mercifully) unable to do that at the moment, we do our best to take you back to sweeter times, when you could melt your brain in front of leather-clad mutants, and discuss the 2000, box-office hit, X-Men.
info_outline The Perfect Storm 05/03/2020
The Perfect Storm Did you know that a movie about a fishing vessel that is lost in a monster hurricane was a huge hit in 2000? Well, neither did we. This week we are discussing the hit film, The Perfect Storm, and asking the tough questions like "are you a Gloucester-man."
info_outline Ghost 04/29/2020
Ghost The sun is beginning to shine and the weather is warming up so we are shifting our focus from the doldrums of quarantine to the excitement of Summer films. We kick off our Summer Blockbuster Series by looking at the biggest hit of 1990, Ghost. To help us commemorate the 30th anniversary of this box-office behemoth, we are joined by JD Duran of In Session Film.
info_outline Blast from the Past 04/19/2020
Blast from the Past The final installment of our COVID-19 series is here and this time we are focusing on emerging from a long quarantine. To capture this topic, we're discussing the 1999 Brendan Fraser and Alicia Silverstone "comedy," Blast from the Past. To help us with this discussion, we welcome back Michael Denniston of the great Sober Cinema.
info_outline Idiocracy 04/13/2020
Idiocracy As our quarantine continues, so does our COVID-19 series. This week, we are going back to 2006 to take a look at what we thought our world and our government would look like in the future in Idiocracy. Joining us to talk about this oddly prescient film is Amanda of the Cinema Geeks.
info_outline Cast Away 04/04/2020
Cast Away Our confinement continues but the show must go on. We press on with our COVID-19 theme and tackling the isolation of being quarantined by discussing the Tom Hanks classic, Cast Away. To help us cure our loneliness, we reach out to our old friend, DJ Valentine, of the Simplistic Reviews Podcast.
info_outline National Lampoon's Vacation 03/30/2020
National Lampoon's Vacation We continue our COVID-19 theme by focusing on being quarantined for long periods of time with your loved ones. What happens when we are trapped with our family and have no where to go? We revisit the 1983 classic, National Lampoon's Vacation, to help us answer that question. If that isn't enough, we have a family expert, Mr. Jared Dotson of the great Sober Cinema, to provide his perspective on the lovely families of the greater Lexington area.
info_outline Outbreak 03/22/2020
Outbreak Desperate times call for desperate measures. As the world confines itself (mostly) to escape a deadly virus that is threatening the globe, we step in to do our part and bring joy to the world. We're back to entertain you with our really bad jokes and complete lack of film knowledge. This week, we're keeping it timely by covering the 1995 Wolfgang Petersen joint, Outbreak.
info_outline Demolition Man 11/03/2019
Demolition Man We at the True Bromance Film Podcast pride ourselves on our efforts to really highlight the hidden gems that can enrich our listeners' lives. We scrap that this week and indulge ourselves in the glory of Stallone, Snipes, and Bullock in Demolition Man.
info_outline Rudy 09/01/2019
Rudy It's that time of the year where we lose our weekends to the futile hopes of our favorite football team winning a game or two. To celebrate this festive season, we are looking back at 1993 at the gridiron classic, Rudy. Along with Rudy, we are contractually obligated as part of any medium that discusses film or pop culture to provide a review of Quentin Tarantino's Once Upon a Time in Hollywood.
info_outline The Abyss 07/26/2019
The Abyss Now that Avengers: Endgame has overtaken Avatar as the highest grossing movie of all time, we are compelled to reach out to James Cameron and see how he's holding up. We feel it's our civic duty to make sure that he doesn't get too down on himself by looking back at one of his classic films, The Abyss.
info_outline John Wick: Chapter 3 - Parabellum 06/01/2019
John Wick: Chapter 3 - Parabellum No one takes out the trash like Mr. Wick. Our trusty and reliable hosts enlist the assistance of Keanu Reeves' alter ego, John Wick, to help us usher in a new era of dependability. Dave and Jairo discuss John Wick: Chapter 3 - Parabellum and revel in the glory of their hideous Game of Thrones predictions from the previous episode.
info_outline Velvet Buzzsaw 03/02/2019
Velvet Buzzsaw As we wait for the post-Oscar hangover to subside and for the 7-month long summer movie season to begin, we take a shot on the Netflix joint, Velvet Buzzsaw. Nightcrawler’s Jake Gyllenhaal and Rene Russo reunite with writer/director Dan Gilroy to tackle the art industry and the sycophants that revolve around it.
info_outline Aquaman 01/13/2019
Aquaman In our first recording of the new year, we go with a film that has been around for weeks and most of the world has seen and forgotten. While the world may have moved on from Aquaman, we can't resist discussing the glory of Jason Momoa and Amber Heard as they frolic in the sea and fend off seahorses and sharks.
info_outline Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse 01/01/2019
Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse We like to keep up with the latest and greatest in the film universe so for this episode we're dialing up Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse. In a world where superhero films saturate the market, can an animated feature distinguish itself from the pack?
info_outline Creed 2 12/08/2018
Creed 2 Michael B. Jordan, Sylvester Stallone, and Tessa Thompson are all back to give us more of the melodrama and pugilistic violence that we crave but this time they're guided by Steven Caple Jr., as Coogler chose to focus on a little independent film rather than return.
info_outline Sleepaway Camp 10/20/2018
Sleepaway Camp The leaves are turning orange, the temperature is dropping, and smell of faux pumpkins is inescapable. That can only mean one thing...Halloween is upon us. To get into the spooky spirit, we take a blast to the past and talk about the 80's cult classic, Sleepaway Camp.
info_outline Hold the Dark / Venom 10/12/2018
Hold the Dark / Venom This week we dive into the latest from film fan favorite, Jeremy Saulnier. He's back with a Netflix "original" that stars Jeffrey Wright, Alexander Skarsgård, James Badge Dale, and Riley Keough. Also, we couldn't help ourselves and tacked on a review of the box office champ, Venom. Can a well respected cast, including Tom Hardy, Michelle Williams, and Riz Ahmed bring something special to the superhero genre? Tune in and find out.
