Very Upset

Joe and TJ go back in time almost 20 years to review the first Mission Impossible film starring Tom Cruise and Jon Voight because nothing currently in the cinema really looks like it’s worth their time. But this one is sure worth the time. It’s a fun romp from the past! Also don’t miss the discussion about TJ’s new Roku 3, James Costa impersonating Robin Williams, Batman V Superman, Brad Bird working on ‘The Incredibles 2’, the new ‘Ant-Man trailer’, the early buzz surrounding ‘The Avengers: Age of Ultron’, and Netflix adding audio descriptions for the visually impaired.

Join TJ and Joe to discuss the brilliant, intense, wonderful, scary, and generally well regarded film ‘Whiplash’. No matter what you might say or think about this film, you have to admit that it generates some great conversation.

TJ and Joe discuss the latest Disney live-action re-imagining: Cinderella. And what a feast for the eyes it is. From the dialog, to the story, to the acting, and even the casting, it’s hard to imagine how Disney could have gotten this re-make more right. Also don’t miss the discussion on the ‘Pixels’ trailer, rumors that J.J. Abrams will come back to the ‘Star Wars’ franchise for Episode IX, Alexandre Desplat possibly scoring one of the spin-off ‘Star Wars’ films, and more!

Join Joe and TJ this week to talk about Will Smith and Margot Robbie’s latest, ‘Focus’. It’s so good in so many ways but the moral ambiguity may leave us all in a bit of a quandary. Ultimately, you’ll have to decide for yourself how you feel about that — after listening to TJ and Joe discuss it of course. And don’t miss discussion of rumors surrounding ‘Tron 3’ gearing up to shoot this fall in Vancouver, the new ‘Daredevil’ Trailer, the new ‘Inside Out’ Trailer, the new ‘Tomorrowland’ trailer, and the new ‘Age of Ultron’ trailer (there are a lot of trailers this week, it’s a regularly old “TrailerByte”.

TJ and Joe are back! And they are pretty sure you won’t catch any deadly germs from an MP3. This week the primary film in review is the wonderfully fun ‘Kingsman: The Secret Service’. But of course, they can’t not pay tribute to the death of one of the great actors of our time, Leonard Nimoy.

Writing Hiatus

Short version for those of you who won’t read all this: The MovieByte Podcast will continue, but I’m taking a break from writing.

The written portion of MovieByte is going on hiatus. I really hate to do it. I love writing reviews, and finding news to make witty and/or sarcastic comments about, and I love doing MovieByte in general. But in all candor and honesty (which I always strive for) I have not been able to get any traction with the site. Readership is lower than it has ever been.

How ‘X-Men: Days of Future Past’ Should Have Ended

Great, as always. Look, I loved X-Men: Days of Future Past, but it was not without it’s plot flaws. Most of the great movies have plot holes you could drive a semi-truck (or three) through. The good ones just make you not care, and I didn’t care when I was watching the film.

I do love how HISHE is becoming a self-aware parody of itself with the super cafe. Great stuff.
