Hosts Mat Bradley-Tschirgi, Thrasher, and Alex Miller discuss The Crow: City of Angels. Ashe Corven (Vincent Pérez) rises from the dead courtesy of a crow to take vengeance upon the gang that killed him.

One of many direct-to-video sequels that are basically loose remake of the original The Crow, The Crow: City of Angels works as well as a bad photocopy. Again, the bad guys are rather interesting with Richard Brooks, Thuy Trang, Iggy Pop, Thomas Jane, and Vincent Castellanos bringing some flair to their cardboard roles. Everything is covered in a smoky haze that's never as evocative as Alex Proyas' work in the original. Uninspired at best.

Dogma (1999)

Hosts Mat Bradley-Tschirgi and Thrasher discuss Dogma. Fallen angels Bartleby (Ben Affleck) and Loki (Matt Damon) start an apocalypse. 

Originally promised in the credits of Clerks as Kevin Smith's next film, Dogma is a comedy that digs deep into Biblical lore. One of Smith's higher grossing films, Dogma's killer cast and thoughtful story combines the holy and the profane into a fun mix. The more you know about the Bible, the funnier this is. Judge Not...In Defense of DOGMA, a feature-length documentary filmed for the original DVD release, was delayed for several years because it was considered too offensive; it later appeared as a bonus feature on Vulgar, an indie feature produced by Smith.

The Crow (1994)

Hosts Mat Bradley-Tschirgi, Thrasher, and Alex Miller discuss The Crow. After a man and his girlfriend are murdered, the man comes back to life to get revenge. 

Based on the indie comic by James O'Barr, The Crow combined moody goth visuals with a simple revenge story into one slick feature. Director Alex Proyas uses aggressive editing, brief flashbacks, and a good sense of pacing to drive the movie along. It's a shame Brandon Lee died onset in a horrible accident. This movie would have catapulted his career to the next level!

A Year of Disney Plus

Hosts Mat Bradley-Tschirgi, Thrasher, and Alex Miller discuss their thoughts on Disney+ after roughly one year of using the popular streaming service. 

There are both good and bad things to the service. It's nice it has nearly every animated Disney feature, but many special features from the DVDs are missing. Original programming can be hit (The Mandalorian, The World According to Jeff Goldblum) or miss (Marvel Studios: Expanding the Universe, Noelle). Plenty of legacy TV shows are missing, and the ones that are available are either in the wrong order or in the wrong aspect ratio. Some films are even censored (Splash), a practice Disney is well versed in. Its search function is not great either. 

As Disney continues to add films from their recent Fox acquisition to Disney+, it will be interesting to see what goes on this service and what ends up on Hulu.

Rambo Last Blood (2019)

Hosts Mat Bradley-Tschirgi, Thrasher, and Alex Miller discuss Rambo: Last Blood. Rambo (Sylvester Stallone) goes to rescue his friend's daughter Gabriela (Yvette Monreal) from Mexico. 

Often feeling more like a Taken movie than a proper Rambo film, Rambo: Last Blood steps away from war-torn battlefields. Rambo's life is different now: he's on medications and is helping Maria raise her daughter Gabriela on the family farm. After Gabriela decides to visit her father in Mexico, things get bad quick and Rambo has to rescue her. 

A lot of this movie simply feels off. Rambo does not have his trademark mullet. There's more dialogue in the first half hour than in all the other Rambo movies combined. Stallone is great at expresses Rambo's rage when he goes "full Rambo", but the whole package feels a bit rote. The United States and Canadian theatrical cut loses crucial scenes in the beginning that help explain payoffs later in the film.

Chasing Amy (1997)

Hosts Mat Bradley-Tschirgi and Thrasher discuss Chasing Amy. Holden (Ben Affleck) pines after Alyssa (Joey Lauren Adams). 

Less broad than Mallrats, Chasing Amy is a thoughtful romantic comedy. Yes, you still have characters obsessed with comic books and Star Wars, but writer-director Kevin Smith is digging a bit deeper here. Easily one of Smith's better films.

Mallrats (1995)

Hosts Mat Bradley-Tschirgi and Thrasher discuss Mallrats. Dudes hang around a mall and compete in a game show. 

After Clerks became an indie darling, hopes were running high for Kevin Smith's sophomore effort. Sporting a budget that dwarfed the original, Mallrats gets a bit too busy with the plot. Jason Lee is especially memorable as Brodie and Ben Affleck starts his long association with Kevin Smith as the villainous Shannon Hamilton. A middle of the road comedy, Mallrats is fine but not the game changer Clerks was.

Triad Election (2006)

Hosts Mat Bradley-Tschirgi, Thrasher, and Alex Miller discuss Triad Election (outside of the US, this was released as Election 2). Lok (Simon Yam) bucks tradition to go up for re-election, but has to run again upstart Jimmy (Louis Koo).

A more intimate movie than the original, Johnnie To's Triad Election is another tense political gangster thriller. Faster paced than the original, this one builds well off events in the original.

SNL Movies

Hosts Mat Bradley-Tschirgi, Thrasher, and Alex Miller discuss Saturday Night Live movies. After certain sketches on SNL became pop culture hits, Lorne Michaels decided to produce movies based on them. 

Through fewer movies than you might think, SNL movies tried to capitalize on hit characters from the show; the 90s in particular was a heyday for this kind of thing. Other than The Blues Brothers and Wayne's World, most of these underperformed. It's harder than it looks to stretch a 5-minute sketch into a 90-minute feature!
