The crew watches Walter Hill's Bullet to the Head, starring Sylvester Stallone, Sung Kang, Jason Momoa, and Christian Slater. It has an axe fight in it, and that's enough to amuse one of us.

Aug 4, 2019

In what is certainly the most contentious episode this podcast has ever experienced, Alan Hardy joins the regular crew to side with Gerald in defense of Christopher Nolan's final Batman film, as Allen and Lacey find few redeeming qualities in the in the trilogy's closing chapter.

Allen struggles to lay this monolith to rest and close the book on one of his biggest cinematic disappointments, while Gerald contemplates if he can even do this podcast anymore.

Jul 29, 2019

2012's The Amazing Spider-Man sees Andrew Garfield pick up the web-shooters and tangle with Rhys Ifans as the Lizard. Does Gerald James really think this is a four-star film? Find out!

Jul 18, 2019

It's Gerald's birthday episode! This year, he's selected his favorite film from 2018, Boots Riley's directorial debut, Sorry To Bother You. Nothing could more closely embody what we've come to describe as "a Gerald movie," but also this one is a really good one. As with most films, we spoil the hell out of it, so do yourself a favor and see this picture before listening to this episode.

Jul 13, 2019

The crew returns after a laborious move to the new Four-Color Headquarters! 2012's Dredd is this week's subject, and it is minorly divisive. Very minorly divisive.

Jun 21, 2019

The crew returns to watch Men in Black 3 and attempt to determine just why Gerald is so miserable.

May 30, 2019

The crew watches the seminal anime classic, Akira. Widely influential and the film that opened up the American market for Japanese animation, but is it actually good? Does it hold up? Find out.

May 24, 2019

The crew watches that Netflix version of Death Note that no one seems to really like and we don't really understand the hate.

May 17, 2019

The crew welcomes Lillian McKinney to discuss Samurai Gourmet, the most wholesome and relaxing show to ever grace Netflix, or any platform. This episode attempts to be wholesome and relaxing, but that proves too tall an order.

May 10, 2019

The crew rings in Manga May with the incredibly gory cult classic, Ichi the Killer. Lacey Day doesn't watch it because she can't handle the depravity, so Allen and Gerald are left to hash out their very different feelings about this one. But the talents of Lacey Day aren't wasted, as this is the only podcast that discusses both Japanese gore cinema, and just how much of a li'l bitch Cory Matthews was in his treatment of Topanga.

Apr 29, 2019

John Hall joins the crew to talk a little about the original AvengersAvengers: Endgame (no spoilers), and to half recall this Ghost Rider movie he barely watched once.

Apr 22, 2019

The FCF crew gathers to examine the first true pillar of the Marvel Cinematic Universe, 2012's The Avengers. Allen and Gerald hash out their very different feelings on the work of Joss Whedon, and Gerald finds an unlikely ally in Lacey Day.

Apr 17, 2019

The crew watches Jon Favreau's 2011 film, Cowboys & Aliens, featuring a ridiculously stacked cast headlined by Daniel Craig and Harrison Ford. Witness, as we learn how an ultimately mediocre film was born from the ultimate Hollywood/comic book scam.

Apr 9, 2019

The crew celebrates John Hall's birthday with a decisive agreement on the merits of the 2011's Joe Johnston directed Captain America: The First Avenger. Conversation careens wildly between the film at hand, the lesser moments of the career of Tommy Lee Jones, the varying values of shout-outs from celebrities via Cameo, and much more.

Apr 3, 2019

Alan Hardy joins the crew to discuss one of the biggest disappointments he's ever faced as a fan of superhero films. 2011's Green Lantern, directed by Martin Campbell and starring Ryan Reynolds, is a cavalcade of bad decision making, questionable editing, and poor writing, from a team of filmmakers that really should have known better.

Mar 26, 2019

The crew watches 2011's The Green Hornet, and the only things they can agree on are that Christoph Waltz is always good and that Seth Rogen isn't very good at writing a Seth Rogen movie.

Mar 20, 2019

After days upon days of delays, delivered to our door by a diligent delivery service, it's Dylan Dog: Dead of Night, on DVD.

Mar 4, 2019

Allen, Gerald, Lacey, and John Hall join forces to talk about X-Men: First Class and... fetish gear. Gerald wants to wear leather pants to goth clubs, and Allen questions his sexuality whenever faced with Michael Fassbender. The film itself was a tremendous push for all of the principal actors, and everyone who says they don't like Jennifer Lawrence is lying.

Feb 25, 2019

Via special listener requests, the regular crew watches the 1993 Disney-produced The Three Musketeers. A childhood favorite of Allen's, this odd action-adventure-comedy take on the classic tale is made even odder by its cast, with the primary cast being entirely American or Canadian and never attempting to hide it. Tim Curry stars as the villainous Cardinal Richelieu, with a wonderful henchman in FCF Legend, Mr. Michael Wincott. And don't you ever forget Herbert Fux.

Feb 18, 2019

Skipping ahead due to the unavailability of Dylan Dog: Dead of Night, John Hall joins the crew to talk about the Kenneth Branagh-directed Thor, the 4th Marvel Studios film. Laying the foundations for Thor as a character and the cosmic side of the Marvel Cinematic Universe, the film isn't really still on anyone's lips when discussing the MCU, but it's ultimately one of the better efforts from the studio.

Feb 12, 2019
  1. Allen and Gerald watch 2010's RED, starring Bruce Willis, John Malkovich, Mary-Louise Parker, Morgan Freeman, Richard Dreyfuss, and Karl Urban. This movie is all over the place, and so is this episode.
Feb 4, 2019

John Hall joins the crew to talk about 2009's Surrogates. We all learn a lot, like that a Harvard education can't help you write a good movie, that the only technology that will progress by the 2050s is robotics, while cellular phones and cars regress to a time before this film was made, and that everyone you've ever heard of is probably a bad person. 

Jan 28, 2019

Allen and Gerald go back and pick up 2009's Whiteout, and wish to god that they hadn't. Kate Beckinsale, Gabriel Macht, and Tom Skerritt do fine with bad material and director Dominic Sean continues his streak of underwhelming films by adapting a graphic novel by Greg Rucka and Steve Lieber. 

Jan 21, 2019

The crew watches 2010's The Losers this week, but talk routinely devolves into discussions of regional fast food, misguided advertisement campaigns targeting millennials, and... some kid's dad's Instagram. The film fails to capture anyone's interest for any extended amount of time, but we all do what we can to get by in this world.

Jan 14, 2019

Gerald prepares to defend another morally questionable piece of fiction from the Allen/Lacey purity tests as the crew talks out 2010's Kick-Ass. The Matthew Vaughn directed adaptation of a Mark Millar comic received mostly positive reviews in its day, but is it showing its age nearly a decade on? Come on in and find out!
