Stunt Granny Audio Movie Review: Fast & Furious 6

Fast-and-Furious-6Finally the summer movie season is upon us, well at least here at Stunt Granny since we ignored Star Trek into Darkness.  How else do you kick of the season but with the much anticipated “Fast & Furious 6” and boy did it not disappoint. Jeremy & Kevin talk about the film and its engaging plot and strong character development. They expose the underlying theme of unity and bigotry around the globe as explained through the intricacies of car racing. The guys also rant and rave about a tank murdering innocent people, a plane that rolls on a seemingly endless runway and the physics of human flight.  They discuss the expansive filmography of director Justin Lin and who is going to assume his chair for “Fast & Furious 7”. So give it a listen. It may be the most positive podcast that Stunt Granny has ever produced.

Stunt Granny Audio Movie Review: Iron Man 3

Iron-Man-3Jeremy and Kevin return after a few weeks of worthless movies and talk all things Iron Man 3. Who liked it? Who didn’t? Did Iron Man 3 break the string of third act failures for superhero movies? How do they manage to make Gwyneth Paltrow attractive in these flicks? No really; she is smoking in the Iron Man franchise. Who had a problem with the blatant plot holes and lack of logic? Was it enough to drag the movie down or was it acceptable in a turn your brain off sort of way? How many individual toys was the final battle supposed to sell? If you are going to make your audience sit through the previews shouldn’t you make them interesting at least? Why the hell are there fifteen minutes of previews in front of a two and a half hour movie? Did any of them sway our reviewers? Did it matter if you saw it in Imax or standard film versions? All of these will be answered and then some so get to listening.

octagonmovieposter

Ken and Kevin are back with another edition of the Retro Movie Review. Kevin suggested The Octogan after having his memory jogged by Dana White on Joe Rogan’s Podcast. Did Ken get to watch this movie as a child? Did his father approve of Chuck Norris? Why is that even relevant? No one is surprised that Chuck Norris is a bad ass in this movie but what caused this bad ass to turn his back on participating in karate tournaments. There are both mercenary ninjas and terrorist ninjas in this movie. Lee Van Cleef leads the mercenary ninjas. Who leads the terrorist ninjas and what relation does he have? Why aren’t both of these groups one in the same? What did the terrorist ninjas do to get such a reputation? How much of a mystique are put on ninjas in this movie?  Ken & Kevin get around to talking about Chuck Norris’s physique. What contribution did Ken’s wife make? How old was Chuck Norris when he filmed this movie in 1980? If terrorist ninjas were recruiting, where would you look to sign up? What do the terrorist recruits have in common with the rag tag group of cabbies in D.C. Cab? Chuck is slaying the ladies in this movie but who ends up being his true love interest? And how exactly does she help him invade The Octagon? Find that out and more when you click the play button below!

Kevin is joined with his long time friend Ken for the unveiling of Retro Movie Theater where in they go back to movies of yesteryear and review it as if it was a new flick. Sometimes, we will have seen it as a child and other times we will have not. While we may make fun of these movies, we’re not looking for Mystery Science Theater 3000 level bad movies. They kick off by talking about D.C. Cab which Ken feels like he watched as a family or did he? Was there any chance in hell that the DiFrango household would have watched this one? They move on to trying to figure out who exactly is the lead character in this movie. It certainly wasn’t Mr. T even though he is featured in all of the movie advertisements. Who all did make an appearance in this movie? Does the name Irene Cara ring a bell to you? Ken & Kevin move on to describing the plot of this movie about a rag tag group of cabbies in Washington D.C. Did anyone ever dream of becoming a cabbie in the big city? Do the cabbies want to make money or play pranks? Would the owner tolerate non-sense instead of firing the cabbies? How many ethnicities can the writers stereotype in one movie? They move on to talking about how many plots were in this movie. How many sub-plots can you fit into 100 minutes? Are any of them fleshed out properly?  Even if they weren’t, Ken & Kevin have this new show fleshed out so click on the link below!
