The movie that set the rules for all slashers that follow. David is a huge fan of the 1978 horror classic and the crew discusses the movie and the franchise of Michael Myers.Support Film Flams
Scream
Nov 21 • 109 min
I went into this film flam feeling a little 'meh' about the cult classic but found that Scream may be a predacessor to movies like Cabin In The Woods. As often happens my impression of the movie was raised during the process of film flams.Support Film…

Silhouettê d’Amour joins us in this awesome display of Laura Linny’s contortion ability.Support Film Flams
43: The Monster Squad
Nov 9 • 84 min
This was my favorite movie as a child and I assumed that watching 20+ years later would lead me to cringe. I was pleasantly surprised as this movie really holds up in a big way. Goonies, who?Support Film FlamsLinks:Film Flams
41: The Craft
Nov 8 • 104 min
This week we’re joined by Silhouette d’amour who picked the movie The Craft. What I remember about this movies is; SNAKES! SNAKES! FU@#ING SNAKES!! But in addition to that it’s a movie about teenage self identity and finding yourself as a teenager moving…
40: Mad Max: Fury Road
Nov 8 • 125 min
If you don't normally listen to the film flam episodes, I really think you should consider this one. Fury Road is a bit of a sleeper great movie, while critically acclaimed it wasn't as profitable as you may think. Personally I originally saw the movie…
39: They Live
Nov 8 • 96 min
An awesome movie that spans horror, sci-fi, and political satire. This movie may be 20 years ahead of it's time. Listen to David, Bo and special guest Kyle discuss the amazing back story and iconic scenes of 1988's They Live.Support Film Flams
Cabin in the woods
Oct 3 • 97 min
This is the perfect open to the October movie-thon! On the face Cabin In The Woods is a masterpeice of horror genre satyre but also finds a way to comment on the movie industry as a whole.Support Film Flams
36: Xanadu
Oct 2 • 97 min
Xanadu is a 1980 musical in which an artist needs inspiration to run a night club, I guess. To follow his dreams of being an artist by not painting a single painting the entire movie. Oh, but there is street art that comes to life and somehow helps……
35: Mallrats
Oct 2 • 98 min
This week's Film Flam is one of my favorite movies; Mallrats. Probably the best view askewniverse movie and the first one I saw as a young, soon-to-be Kev smith fan. Watch and listen along as David and I fanboy this peace of 90s cultural history.Support…
37: Birdman or (The Unexpected Virtue of Ignorance)
Oct 2 • 122 min
Does Riggan have speacial powers? Probably not, But I’m pretty sure Michael Keaton does. This movie showcases Michael Keaton, Emma Stone, Edward Norton and many others. Possibly the most intentional casting for a movie covering art, self doubt, self…
34: Alien: Resurrection
Sep 30 • 117 min
We round out the end of our Aline series with the final (chronologically speaking) installment; Alien: Resurrection. This movie has some redeeming qualities but overall is a prime example of how you can have all the right people involved and all the best…

30: Galaxy Quest
Sep 15 • 104 min
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…
29: Yoga Hosers
Sep 15 • 90 min
I'm really excited for the third installment of the Kevin Smith Canadian horrors, Moose Jaws. But I would be a terrible fan if I watched Moose Jaws without seeing the second installment. Yoga Hosers is one half Clerks level genius and one half ridiculous,…
27: Tusk
Sep 15 • 102 min
Tusk is a smart and interest work of art that balances Kevin Smith style humor with torture porn style horror.Support Film Flams
25: Terminator Salvation
Sep 9 • 114 min
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…
24: Terminator 3: Rise of the Machines
Sep 9 • 109 min
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…
26: Terminator Genisys
Sep 9 • 129 min
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…

21: Warcraft
Sep 6 • 124 min
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…
20: Air
Sep 6 • 102 min
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,…
19: Hercules
Sep 6 • 108 min
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…
17: Commando
Sep 5 • 99 min
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…
18: Troll 2
Sep 5 • 101 min
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…
16: Prometheus
Sep 5 • 125 min
The prequel to Alien. A visual masterpeace with a flawed plot. David and I disagree with the degree at witch we love and hate this movie. Support Film Flams
15: Cruel Intentions
Aug 29 • 100 min
This is my wife's favorite movie, she must be a freak. This is one of those chick-flicks where the hot guy is trying to win a bet at the expense of the hot girl and the hot girl eventually convences him that he "can love" after all. The wife joins us in…

This is one of the legendary horrors from the time when horror was actually horrifying. Support Film Flams
13: The Shining
Aug 28 • 146 min
Very, very different from the original Stephen King source matterial but is a whole new thing; a Stanley Kubrick masterpeace. As much as I love this movie it is strange that Halloran spends the subplot of the movie getting back to The Overlook hotel just…
11: Burn After Reading
Aug 17 • 98 min
The first time I saw this movie it was in the theater and I laughed myself under the seat in front of me. One of my all time favorite comedies. Check out our awesome comentary.Support Film Flams
10: Let me in
Aug 12 • 116 min
Derived from the original Let The Right One In, Let Me In is a slow paced, mysterious, horror thriller. Enjoyed this movie and hopefully we had a good companion commentary.Support Film Flams
9: Stranger Than Fiction
Aug 12 • 112 min
(Stranger Than Fistion + David + Bo) x (microphone + beer) = Film Flams episode 9 I love it when a comedian can play a role like Harold Crick, A calculated straight lace IRS agent who falls in love with the free-spirited Ana Pascal. The character is verry…
8: Oblivion
Aug 11 • 127 min
Ever see any Sci-fi ever? There is probably some element of whatever movie you just thought of in this one. Oblivion could be criticised for having story elements and concepts from many sci-fi classics; 2001, Moon, Ex-Machina. But somehow the movie seems…

Secret Agent James Bond is sent on his first mission as 007 to confront a terrorist at Casino Royale, Montenegro.Support Film Flams
6: Source Code
Aug 4 • 98 min
I like to think of this movie as Duncan Jones first Warcraft script. Ok so I don't know to fit that in my fan theory but this is a great Duncan Jones film. David and I go through some real fan theories and possibilties of this plot and it's meaning.…
5: Chasing Amy
Aug 3 • 120 min
As a huge Kevin Smith fan I have to say, Chasing Amy is my favorite of his movies. The tangled triangle between these three characters is intriguing, real, and raw. The movie explores relationships and how sometimes people let something in a partners past…

3: Inception
Aug 1 • 150 min

2: Superman: The Movie
