Well, grab your Warawara and popcorn and find out in this week's episode of The Filmlosophers!

Dec 28, 2023

Well, grab your Scrumdiddlyumptious bars and popcorn and find out in this week's special holiday episode of The Filmosphers!

Dec 26, 2023

The Filmlosophers and Intern Amy wish you happy holidays as they bestow another entry in the Season of Suffering with an Avengers-level Hallmark holiday film in Three Wise Men and a Baby.

The Curmudgeonly Compatriots gift each other the wonderful present of confusion as the mental sanity of the demographic for these types of films comes into question. As the film markets itself to have an all-star cast of Who’s Who in the Hallmark holiday film universe, does the film dive deeper into the effort of other areas like the writing and direction? Or does the Avenger's call to action follow only with an Avengers-level flop? Well, grab your surrendered babies at the door and popcorn and find out in this week's special holiday episode of The Filmosphers!

Dec 14, 2023

The Filmlosophers and Intern Amy continue the pain of their Season of Suffering with a trip to the House of Mouse and their latest holiday cringefest, Dashing Through the Snow.

The Nativity Natives can’t wrap their brains around the Christmas offering from Disney, despite the conglomerate’s massive success throughout the years. With the amount of production value going into some of these other holiday films from Disney, was Dashing Through the Snow only suffering from being under budget? Or is there more to this film than a few Christmas jokes and some diverse casting? Well, grab your holiday cookies and popcorn and find out in this week's special holiday episode of The Filmosphers!

Dec 8, 2023

The Filmlosophers and Intern Amy kick off their second annual Season of Suffering with a 20th anniversary viewing of one of the most cringe-worthy Christmas films of all time, Love Actually.

The Yuletide Yuppies try to wrap their brains around why this film is not only celebrated, but even still available for viewing. With its blatant misogyny, disrespect to women and the institution of marriage, and just the absolute injustice done to the iconic Rowan Atkinson, why is this film getting another crack in the theaters this season? Or is the English charm and awkwardness of Hugh Grant enough to overpower any audience? Well, grab your lobster and popcorn and find out in this week's special holiday episode of The Filmosphers!

Nov 23, 2023

The Filmlosophers and Jr Filmlosopher Sarah want to wish you and your loved ones a happy holiday as they take a fun look at Eli Roth’s pilgrim serial slasher film, Thanksgiving.

The Cornucopiatic Compadres unravel the entertaining yet visceral dissection of the holiday masterpiece, a project solely based on a mock trailer created by Roth for the 2007 experimental Horror film, Grindhouse. With the nature of Hollywood Horror these days, however, do Slasher films still have a place in theaters? Or does the success and drive for more only highlight the market and audience that may be underfed? Well, grab your turkey drumsticks and popcorn and find out in this week's special episode of The Filmosphers!

Nov 10, 2023

The Filmlosophers and Intern Amy are joined by Jr Filmlosopher and video game aficionado Sarah to break down and discuss the subtle -and not-so-subtle- nuances of the hit indie horror game-turned-movie, Five Nights at Freddy’s.

The Mechanophobic Maniacs offer their experience and intellect as they dissect the long-awaited adaptation that has both gamers and cinephiles ready to critique. Does FNAF add another feather in the hat of the potential to create great video-game-to-film adaptations? Or will the past continue to come back to haunt us with the doomed fate of our favorite pastimes turned movies? Well, grab your electrified guitars and popcorn and find out in this week's episode of The Filmosphers!

Oct 30, 2023

The Filmlosophers and Intern/Final Girl Amy wrap up their celebration of the Asylum rabbit hole with a look at the nexus film honoring the 25th anniversary of the infamous studio, 2025 Armageddon.

The Tech-Savvy Tools take a moment to recollect the film that acts as ‘The Avengers’ crossover event for the studio’s past 25 years of films. Can the studio known for its unique filmography create a piece that unites all that is good and fun in its history? Or does the effort to build up such a film only highlight the issues many critics share? Well, grab your interstellar walkie-talkies and popcorn and find out in this week's special spooky episode of The Filmosphers!

Oct 20, 2023

The Filmlosophers and Intern/Final Girl Amy are joined by friend of the show Ben to continue their celebration of The Asylum Studios this month with a cataclysmic take on their 2020 end-of-the-world film, Asteroid-a-Geddon.

The Laser-focused Looky-Loos dive deep on their journey through the chaotically fun film reminiscent of the 1998 smash-hit film, Armageddon. Does the sheer nature of these films highlight the too-serious nature of most Hollywood films these days? Or will the overpowering inconsistencies and performances do more harm than good for movie fans? Well, grab your denim vests and popcorn and find out in this week's special spooky episode of The Filmosphers!

Oct 12, 2023

The Filmlosophers and Intern/Final Girl Amy celebrate The Asylum Studios this month as they creep carefully through the history books and sift through the chaos and entertainment of their “mockbuster" film, Abraham Lincoln vs. Zombies.

The Biographical Buds discuss the parts they missed in school that regaled our 16th President and his proclivity to beheading the undead. Do B-movies like this give fans of the macabre and ridiculous an opportunity to let their freak flag fly? Or are these more of the same types of movies that are just copying major films in theaters, and nothing more? Well grab your pocket scythes and popcorn and find out in this week's special spooky episode of The Filmosphers!
