The Filmlosophers and Intern Amy may be a little late to the party, but they are definitely ready to join the joyful processional with the latest adaptation of the timeless Disney attraction, Haunted Mansion (2023). 

The Corporeal Critics have finally made the trek to go see the film that Intern Amy has been itching incessantly to review, being the Disney Lore nerd that she is. But have the efforts already established in the first adaptation featuring Eddie Murphy already tainted the waters? Or will the fresh take and engaging cast of characters with an updated storyline give fans a new look at the attraction's mythos? Grab your sharpened axes & your popcorn, & tune in to find out in this week’s episode of The Filmlosophers!

The Filmlosophers and Intern Amy break out the cervezas and the jams as they get pulled into la familia with their latest thoughts on the indigenous indigo cabezón superhero out of Warner Bros and DC, Blue Beetle.

The Brazen Borachos can’t believe the amount of quality storytelling and fun coming out of the fallen house of the DCEU, and how Director Angel Manuel Soto brought the Latinx community to the big screen. But does this film only highlight the very issues that DC and Warner Bros seem to work to sweep under the rug: diversity in their films? Or has the incredible work by actor Xolo Maridueña and the rest of the cast only scratched the surface of what James Gunn has in store?

Grab your tacos & your popcorn, & tune in to find out in this week’s episode of The Filmlosophers!

The Filmlosophers and Intern Amy shred the streets of nostalgia as they delve deep into Seth Rogen’s fresh take on our shell-shocked crime fighters, Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: Mutant Mayhem. The Reptilian Reporters vibe off this latest iteration of our favorite non-amphibian warrior adolescents and their rodent father. Did Seth Rogen and his team find the unique bridge for this childhood classic quartet for fans young and old? Or does the imperfect styling of this TMNT world only highlight the very issues we are seeing in filmmakers trying to replicate the animation magic from Spider-Man: Into the Spiderverse? Grab your pizza slices & your popcorn, & tune in to find out in this week’s episode of The Filmlosophers!

The hosts of the Filmlosophers, The Capeless Crusaders, and Video Game BANG! come together to say farewell to not only a staple in the Sacramento community, but also to dear a friend.

Late in June, we found out that our friend and podcast mate Curtis J. Fisher -also known as Skipntosh- passed away from a hard-fought battle with cancer. To many, he was more than just a friendly local comic book nerd; he was THE local comic book nerd. His love for the Sacramento Kings and all things nerdy made him a friend to every member of this city instantaneously. Next to his work in the podcast community, his musical career, and his ability to draw people from all crowds in, Curtis was like gravity. We knew that we had some things left to say to him, promises to keep, and goodbyes to be had.

When podcasters need to say something, we do it the only way we know how: we come to the table, put on our headphones, and hit record. Join VGB host Cory Vincent, The Capeless Crusader hosts David "Doc" Barrie and Anthony Esteves, and Filmlosophers Amy and Eddie Villanueva as we talk about how we've each been touched by his life, and how his legacy will always live on. We will miss you, Curtis Fisher.

The Filmlosophers and Intern Amy take a strange and nostalgic trip to a land of yesteryear, where they discuss the subtle surprise and not-so-subtle power behind Greta Gerwig’s latest film, Barbie. The Malleable Mammals reveal the impact this film has had on not just cinema but society as a whole, and all the people it’s upsetting. Has Greta Gerwig created a spotlight on a portion of cinema that has still yet to evolve after all these years: respect for women? Or does the heavy-handed nature of the messaging in the film only act as a deterrent to fans? Grab your rollerblades & your popcorn, & tune in to find out in this week’s episode of The Filmlosophers!
