This week’s review: The Rocketeer

In this week’s episode Sean & Matt talk about Joe Johnston’s 1991 film, The Rocketeer, which stars Billy Campbell, Jennifer Connelly, Alan Arkin, Timothy Dalton, and Paul Sorvino. Having worked on movies like Star Wars and Indiana Jones, Joe Johnston has an incredible talent for capturing the 1930’s and 1940’s era feeling. He’d later bring that skill to the movie Captain America. This swash buckling, 1940’s serial adventure is a lot of fun.

This week’s review: Big Trouble in Little China

In this week’s episode Sean & Matt talk about John Carpenter’s 1986 film, Big Trouble in Little China, which stars Kurt Russell, Kim Cattrall, James Hong, and Victor Wong. While some of the movie’s special effects, humor and action hold up, other aspects are dated and fall flat. Not to mention the incredibly dated music.

There’s also the hidden treasure of the Big Trouble in Little China Commodore 64 video game to cover.

This week’s review: Sunshine

In this week’s episode, Sean and Matt talk about Danny Boyle’s 2007 movie, Sunshine. It stars Cillian Murphy, Michelle Yeoh, Hiroyuki Sanada, Benedict Wong, and Chris Evans. Yes, Captain America is in this movie.

Set 50 years into the future, the sun begins to die. A team of astronauts are sent to revive the sun, but the mission fails. While the first two thirds of the movie are fantastic, the final third falls into monster movie mayhem.

This week’s review: Sorcerer

In this week’s episode, Sean and Matt talk about William Friedkin’s movie, Sorcerer. A phenomenal movie that stars Roy Scheider and has absolutely nothing to do with sorcery, which may be part of the reason it failed at the box office.
