About Us

A light-hearted comedic spoiler free movie podcast focusing on the week's new cinema releases. Darren Hayes and Anthony Armentano spend their hard earned (or borrowed) cash to see the latest film releases and tell you what they thought. Because they don't get in for free, their opinions are honest. Honestly! May contain funny bits (they're both Groundlings trained improvisers) and strange non sequiturs (Anthony has a degree in film and Darren has an Olympic medal in rambling). Maybe some naughty words too.

Latest Episodes

Ep 125: The Great Big Spectacular Goodbye For Now Show.

EThe time has come to say farewell, each moment we’ve spent sure has been swell. We’ve laughed, we’ve sang, we’ve seen some flicks, but mostly we’ve just talked about [male flesh meat]. We be reviewing two films before taking a long, much needed hiatus; addiction drama ‘Beautiful Boy’ (Timothée Chalamet, Steve Carell, Maura Tierney, Amy Ryan), and Luca Guadagnino’s update of the Italian horror film, ‘Suspiria’ (Dakota Johnson, Tilda Swinton, Chloe Grace Moretz, Mia Goth). Old friends stop by. We derail the conversations. It’s business as usual. Thanks so much for sticking with us. It’s been a pleasure - and we sincerely hope to give you more in the future. So it's goodbye for now but gosh it's been a blast.

Ep 125: The Great Big Spectacular Goodbye For Now Show.

Ep 124: Halloween, Mid 90's & Can You Ever Forgive Me?

EWe set the mood and keep it rude this week, while we review the new Danny McBride/David Gordon Green ‘Halloween’ (Jamie Lee Curtis, Judy Greer, Andi Matichak), the Oscar worthy ‘Can You Ever Forgive Me?’ (Melissa McCarthy, Richard E. Grant, Dolly Wells) and Jonah Hills’ directorial feature debut ‘mid90s’ (Sunny Suljic, Katherine Waterston, Lucas Hedges). Tis the season to run down a list of the highest grossing horror films of all time and throw some love at John Carpenter’s soundtrack work. You bet we mention ‘Your Highness’. On a personal note, when I typed the title of this episode, I, Darren, refused to use the same font Jonah Hills insisted upon using for his film, since he already insisted upon showing his movie in 4:3 ratio and that's about as much insisting as anyone can handle regarding any special requests. Consider yourself censored, Hills. No, I insist.

Ep 123: A Star Is Born, First Man & Bad Times at the El Royale

EOutside the streets have gone mad, and between the two of us we spend the equivalent of a day at the theater this week. Reviews include, Damien Chazelle’s ‘First Man’ (Ryan Gosling, Claire Foy, Kyle Chandler), Drew Goddard’s ‘Bad Times at the El Royale’ (Jeff Bridges, Cynthia Erivo, Jon Hamm, Dakota Johnson), and the fourth iteration of ‘A Star is Born’ (Lady Gaga, Bradley Cooper, Andrew Dice Clay, Sam Elliott). We talk dong, Hemsworths, and show Buzz Aldrin the door. We close the show with some good, old fashioned email readin’.

Ep 122: Mandy, Thriller 3D and The Meg

EIt’s a short, campy, schlocky week this go around. We review Panos Cosmatos’ dystopian, revenge film ‘Mandy’ (Nicolas Cage, Andrea Riseborough, Linus Roache, Bill Duke), and shark-centric, monster movie ‘The Meg’ (Jason Statham, Bingbing Li, Rainn Wilson, Ruby Rose). Darren gives ‘The House with a Clock in Its Walls’ a box office boost, just to check out the IMAX 3D release of Michael Jackson’s ‘Thriller’, and Anthony skips town again. The world’s greatest Erik Estrada joke gets highlighted.

ESinging genitalia, Anthony’s new catchphrase, and Darren’s post performance celebration. This week’s reviews include Michael Moore’s political followup ‘Fahrenheit is 11/9’ and Sam Levinson’s social critique, ‘Assassination Nation’ (Odessa Young, Suki Waterhouse, Hari Nef, Abra). Maude Apatow impresses and Bill Skarsgard is in everything EXCEPT True Blood. We rundown a list of our favorite sports announcers, and shoot hot, Halloween juice all up in your furniture.

Ep 120: Lizzie and more (or less)

EWe’re short, we’re sweet, we’re taking a week, but that doesn’t mean we’re leaving you completely review-less. We chat about the latest Lizzie Borden film, ‘Lizzie’ (Kristen Stewart, Chloe Sevigny, Fiona Shaw), get our hacking rhymes straight, and never fail to mention the old True Blood.Plus we got offered a pretty bad deal after bars closed the other night, involving an exchange of stolen pizza knots for illicit things. Tune in to find out what, who andwheyey!

Ep 119: A Simple Favor & Susanne Bartsch: On Top

ETraffic transgressions, driveway tantrums, and a potential first class ticket to internet infamy. We review two films, the socialite documentary ‘Susanne Bartsch: On Top’, and Paul Feig’s comedic thriller, ‘A Simple Favor’ (Anna Kendrick, Blake Lively, Henry Golding). We croon that sweet, sweet Gin Blossom-y sound, drown our sorrows in tequila, and keep the vibe generally loopy.Don't get emotional, baby.

Ep 118: The Nun & Operation Finale

EOur review of ‘The Nun’ is probbably scarier than the actual movie, but still, we saw it so you don’t have to. Corin Hardydirected this next installment of ‘TheConjuring’ franchise -starring Demián Bichir, Taissa Farmiga, Jonas Bloquet, Sandra Teles, Charolotte Hope and way too many nuns. We alsocaught the biopic based on the catpure and trial of ‘Adolp Eichman’, the monster referred to as the architect of the holocaust. Directed byChris Weitz and starringOscar Isaac, Ben Kingsley, Mélanie Laurent, Lior Raz, Nick Kroll and Haley Lu Richardson, ‘Operation Finale’ takes on an incredibly imporatant moment in history. Plus we’re visited byour old friend Bill Wilkins and we make everything about Madonna. Anthony also saw another thing but honestly I’ve given up trying to remember what it was.

Ep 117: The Little Stranger, Searching & Your Name

EThis week, we travel down an absurd vortex of lethargy while we review two new thrillers, the Lenny Abrahamson film, ‘The Little Stranger’ (Domhnall Gleeson, Ruth Wilson, Charlotte Rampling) and the laptop-centric ‘Searching’ (John Cho, Debra Messing, Michelle La). We pit Oscar Isaac and Domhnall Gleeson against each other in a match of beauty, refuse to fall in love, and frequent a seedy theater. We give a bonus review of the body-switching 2016 anime, ‘Your Name’. Hey. Who loves ya? We do.

EPuppet sex, mood lighting, and one of us might be held hostage. Currently. Please send help. This week, we review three fa-hilms!

Chu’s ‘Crazy Rich Asians’ (Constance Wu, Michelle Yeoh, Henry Golding, Awkwafina, Ken Jeong). We talk two recently classic hunk filled dance scenes, debate water, and deliver the ASMR tingles that no one asked for.
