Filmwhys #87 The Living Daylights and From Hell

Filmwhys #87 The Living Daylights and From Hell

I’m back with another episode of Filmwhys aka the Why Haven’t You Seen This Film Podcast. This time around I’m taking another dip into the James Bond franchise. This will be the fourth Bond film that I’ve seen, the third one that I’ve watched for a podcast, the second that I’ve watched specifically for Filmwhys, and the first Timothy Dalton Bond film. My guest is Jim O’Kane, a big member of the Movies by Minutes community and relevant to this site he specifically co-hosted the Rocketeer Minute. The movie that he watched for the first time was the first graphic novel adapted from the works of Alan Moore, the film itself is fairly mediocre but there’s still a lot of great discussion to be had in our conversation.

It’s Time to Rewind has finished up its first season on Groundhog Day a few weeks ago, but there has been bonus content coming out every week since then and of course I have to share it here.

Tomorrow’s bonus episode is a cross-promotion of the latest Filmwhys episode and season 2: Trapped in the Twilight Zone will be starting on November 1st. So enjoy these episodes and I look forward to sharing the next season with you!

Filmwhys #86 The Mist and Spawn

Wow, it’s been quite a while hasn’t it? Even though I’ve started a new podcast, I didn’t want to fully give up on my previous Filmwhys podcast so I am finally bringing it back. Hopefully new episodes will be coming out monthly near the middle of each month. For this month’s episode I brought back guest Justin Gott from the Rambling Ramblers Podcast who asks me why I hadn’t seen the 2007 Frank Darabont horror film the Mist. And in return, I ask him why he hadn’t seen the 1997 superhero film that was the first non-parody superhero film with a Black lead, Spawn.

Filmwhys 83 The Last Starfighter and 2 Guns

Welcome back to the return of a regular episode of Filmwhys, though it may be short lived. We’ll see. But for now, I bring back returning guest DJ Valentine from Simplistic Reviews who asks me why I hadn’t seen the Last Starfighter, a classic 80’s family movie that combines two of my favorite things: sci-fi and video games. And in return, I ask him why he hadn’t seen 2 Guns, the comic book movie that doesn’t have much going for it except for the amazing and unexpected chemistry between Denzel Washington and Mark Wahlberg.
