If It Bleeds, We Can Kill It (movies)

Byrd, Trev, and special guest the Goat (Hillbilly DVD Reviews, 1980s Movie Graveyard, The Goat Show) discuss the current state of cinema.  We discuss the reliance on blockbusters, blockbuster/franchise fatigue, theaters vs. streaming, the effects of Rotten Tomatoes, the treatment of indie directors on blockbuster films, the "cinematic universe" syndrome, bad movie theater experiences, pandering to Hong Kong, and more!  There are a lot of changes going on in how we view and think about movies, and we'll get into the pros and cons of all of it!  But first, a tribute to the late, great, George A. Romero.

Byrd and Trev take some time to celebrate one of their favorite directors, David Lynch.  With Twin Peaks coming back for another season, we thought it would be a good idea to do a full retrospective of Lynch's career.  We discuss each of his films, our first exposure to his work, what we hope to get from the return of Twin Peaks, and much more!

Byrd and Trev return with our sort of late review of Rogue One: A Star Wars Story.  We also discuss the passing of Carrie Fisher and what the future may hold for Princess Leia.  We also deliver on our promise to review the first season of the Exorcist TV series and the recently released directors cut of Exorcist III.  But first, we discuss our inexplicable recent fascination with Tyler Perry's Madea films and the weird current state of the DC Extended Universe films.

On the latest edition of If It Bleeds, Byrd and Trev take a look at Marvel's latest event film, Captain America: Civil War.  But first, they look at two older, more obscure Marvel comics films and discuss the days when the name "Marvel" didn't necessarily spell success to film goers.  The films in question are Captain America (1990) and Man-Thing (2005).  How do they hold up these days?  Did they ever hold up to begin with?  Listen and find out!

For their second audio commentary, Byrd and Trev take a look at the much maligned (or misunderstood if you listen to Trev) Superman III.  While many see this as a confused Richard Pryor vehicle, some still think it holds up as an enjoyable third romp for Supes.  Watch and listen with the boys as they unpack one of the strangest superhero films ever made!

The Great Allegiant Experiment

In March of 2016, Byrd and Trev underwent a daring and bold experiment in podcasting... to drop themselves smack dab into the middle of the Divergent film franchise.  They went and saw Allegiant, the latest movie in the series, without seeing the previous films, reading the books, or having even the smallest bit of passing knowledge of the plot.  Listen as they try to figure out what happened in this movie, what happened in the previous films, and what happens in the next and final film.  But be warned, these are the ramblings of madmen.

Join Byrdman v. Snyderman as they dive into Batman v. Superman: Dawn of Justice and try to figure out just what this movie was exactly.  This is HEAVY on spoilers for the entire episode, so listen if you've seen the movie or just don't care.  But first, they talk about their childhood love of the title characters, discuss Daredevil Season 2, and Trev talks about Pee Wee's Big Holiday.
