Episodes

  • Episode 30: Galaxy Quest

    J.J. Abrams said that Galaxy Quest was "One of the best" Stat Trek films ever made. We have to at least agree that it is one of the best Sci-fi adventure movies ever made and it's most likely due to the ability to be funny while not belittling Sci-fi fans. The Sci-fi fandom parody that laughs with you but not at you.

  • Episode 27: Tusk

    Tusk is a smart and interest work of art that balances Kevin Smith style humor with torture porn style horror.

  • Episode 25: Terminator Salvation

    David and I watch the fourth installment of the Terminator franchise. Terminator Salvation. The plot of this movie would make a great video game plot, with many different backdrops and multiple goals spread out through plot twists and intertwining stories. While this movie seems to be an attempt at the franchise's SALVATION (see what I did there?) it's plot is just a little convoluted compared to the original two movies and being rated PG 13 brings it back to the family friendly third installment. I think this movie is better than Rise of The Machines but still doesn't quite live up to the legacy.

  • Episode 26: Terminator Genisys

    Our Film Flams of the Terminator saga has come to an end. An end that returns to it's beginning. The Genesis installment of the Terminator franchise starts before the opening of the first movie. The story actually covers the chronological distance of the entire series.

    The Terminator series was fun to cover in Film Flams and it really brought me more appreciation for a series I already enjoyed.

  • Episode 24: Terminator 3: Rise of the Machines

    Most definitely not the shining light of the franchise, Terminator 3 was the first non James Cameron Terminator and it may as well have had Fonzie jumping a shark on skies. The movie has some questionable casting and some even more questionable plot points. All that said, we still freaking love it. It's kind of like having a dog that eats your shoes. It's going to consistently ruin your day but maybe every once in a while it'll hump your friend's leg.

  • Episode 23: Terminator 2

    Both David and myself have a great appreciation for The Terminator. Join us as we get drunk and watch a american sci-fi classic.

  • Episode 21: Warcraft

    David and I watch one of my favorite movies of recent release. Warcraft!  Being a huge World of Warcraft fan this commentary has almost no dead spots as David and have a lot to talk about in this commentary. We discuss the things Warcraft does great and the things that are not so great. But all-in-all I really do love this movie and I hope Blizzard and Legendary decide to do more.

  • Episode 20: Air

    David and I haven't done a Film Flam in over two years! This was a great come back! Mainly because neither David nor myself had ever seen the movie AIR before but where both intrigued by a Norman Reedus starring, Robert Kirkman produced sci-fi movie, filmed on a small set with a small cast. Check out the episode to get our take on the film and our guessing the conclusion of the movie while watching.

  • Episode 19: Hercules

    September 6th, 2018  |  1 hr 48 mins
    brad harris, lou ferrigno, sybil danning

    One of David's favorite childhood movies, The classic Hercules starring Lou Ferrigno. This is an icon movie that represents a genre and time period of movie history. Plus it has plenty of scantily clad ladies in ridiculous costumes. Lou Ferrigno is Jacked and throws bears into Space, Check it out if you haven't yet.

  • Episode 17: Commando

    September 5th, 2018  |  1 hr 39 mins

    Not even John Matrix could make a better movie, but maybe he could because maybe John Matrix can do all things. Could John Matrix tighten a pickle jar so tight that not even John Matrix could open it. Such question where not meant for man to answer.

  • Episode 18: Troll 2

    The documentary about this movie has a tittle that best describes the contents of Troll 2, documentary tittle - Best Worst Movie. Troll 2 may just be the best worst movie ever made. While far from being a good movie it's not the worst movie ever but out of the bad ones it may be the most fun.
