Logan Lucky - Rant #14

Hello Rantaineers! Welcome back to another week of film and entertainment discussions! Woot! Woot! This week we have the very talented, and old soul, Allegra (Twitter Link, Twitch Link, Facebook Link, Instagram Link). "Legzz" as we like to call her, spends her free time pretending to be old to add a level of maturity to her overbearing nerdy bravado. She thinks she's got us fooled, but she does not! Legzz film choice this week is Logan Lucky, or the southern version of Ocean's 11. We get into a bit of a discussion about the differences between the show Vikings and Game of Thrones, which then leads into a conversation of between the differences of The Walking Dead TV show and the comic book. We mention the upcoming HBO Watchmen Series and the early reception of Marvel's Black Panther film. Other films and tv shows we discussed were Grace and Franky, Sing Street, and (Breandan's newer favourite film) A Ghost Story! Hope you enjoy the show.

Side Note: For those that are Local to Victoria, B.C., The Reel Rant crew are headed to the Victoria Film Festival to see Jamie Thraves film starring Aidan Gillen (Littlefinger from Game of Thrones) Pickups. We will also be present for the Q&A after the screening to get a better insight into the making of the film with Jamie and Aidan. So that means there will be a special episode out for that, so stay tuned!

Next week's episode we discuss Steven Spielberg's film Saving Private Ryan. - "James, earn this..."

Hello Rantaineers! Welcome back to another episode of some good ol'fashion movie talk, and other jazzy stuff going on in the entertainment world! This is a pretty epic episode for sure! We have stepped up the production a bit with a couple noticeable changes that we know you'll dig. This week we are talking with Matt Herring (Matt's Twitter Link - Instagram Link)...AGAIN...He wondered back into our Bat Cave Recording Studio (A.K.A our Living room/ Dining room) and we kinda just let him be on the show this week because we felt bad for him. We joke! Matt Herring the other bearded sexy boi is back and has chosen the film Lucky Number Slevin to talk about! We also talk 90th Oscar Noms, Universals Dark Universe update, and the next film project of Lord of the Rings famed Director Peter Jackson. Some films and shows we discuss on the show this week are Gerald's Game, Phantom Thread, Dunkirk, The Handmaid's Tale, The Alienist, and Runaways. Thats pretty much it! Enjoy!

Snatch - Rant #12

Hello Rantaineers! We have a special episode for you this week! Not that any of the other episodes aren't special. This one you might say is chill. Like "chill" as in cool. Just a couple of cool dudes talking into microphones! Well two cool dudes including the guest, because unfortunately the illustrious sexy boi Corey McEwen couldn't make it this week. So that means it's just Breandan and his big brother Ben a.k.a. Big Ben (like the clock from that place where everyone talks a bit fancy).  Ben spends his spare time traveling the world and pointing at buildings that look cool, finding inspiration from them, and then creating his own design out of Lego and a hot glue gun. He's a trained Architect basically is what we are trying to say. He's kind of a "big" deal (hence the name Big Ben). He owns quite a few leather bound books lets just say. If you're still reading this and wondering why this write up is so elaborate, it's due to the fact we really only talk about Big Ben's film pick this week Snatch. That's it. We wanted to meet a similar paragraph length as we do most weeks. You know? Keep things consistent. Think this should be good though. Enjoy the show! 

Next week's episode we discuss Paul McGuigan film Lucky Number Slevinwith our guest Matt Herring!

The Prestige - Rant #10

Hello Rantaineers! Hope you all had a wonderful Holiday! This week on the show we have our friend, who works first hand in the film business, Sarah Ayer! Her film pick this week (as you probably have read already) is The Prestige. Aside from the film of the week we get into a conversation of post holiday stuff (like Corey's Wizard staff *click for image*), and films and shows we watched over the holiday season. We mention shows like Peaky Blinders and Dark, which we can't recommend more. We also discuss films Like The Florida Project, Bright, and Phantom Thread. Finally, we "Rant" about the studio system and it's relationships with writers these days. It's a good one this week for sure! Enjoy!

Next week's episode is Burn After Reading! One of our favourites over here at The Reel Rant!
