The MovieByte Podcast

The MovieByte Podcast is a show to discuss, praise, lament, or sometimes even lampoon movies, TV shows, culture and more. Sometimes we talk about specific movies, or sometimes we talk about a movie series, or even TV shows. And sometimes we talk much more broadly about movie themes or topics.

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. Also in the news this week, the ‘Mission Impossible 5’ trailer, rumor of Marvel looking to cast a 16 year old for the part of ‘Spider-Man’, and the Russo Brothers confirmed for ‘Avengers: Infinity War Parts 1 and 2’.

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.

TJ and Joe are joined by Mikey Fissel to talk about the big, fun, and half disappointing, half exciting space opera, ‘Jupiter Ascending’. Opinions are varied, and some love the film more than others. Also, Jon Stewart is leaving the daily show? What?!? And Spidey is coming back to the Marvel fold? Also, pigs seem to be taking flight! And since Marvel is in the news, why not talk about their upcoming Netflix show, ‘Daredevil’? Not to be left out, Lionsgate want to make more franchise films with ‘The Hunger Games’ franchise. Too bad their out of books.

It’s been a while since TJ and Joe have had a good movie lampooning, so here is ‘Taken 3’ in all its terrible glory. Though TJ and Joe might quibble about which is worse, ‘Taken 2’, or ‘Taken 3’, they agree that neither film is really worth watching. But if you are not into hearing a good bashing of a bad film, don’t worry, there’s plenty else to talk about. Such as Harper Lee publishing a sequel to the famous book, ‘To Kill a Mockingbird’ — I know, right? — the ‘Honest Trailer’ for ‘The LEGO Movie’, a 3,000 piece LEGO ‘Avengers’ Helicarrier set, the Super Bowl TV Spot for ‘Avengers: Age of Ultron’, Martin Scorsese and Kenneth Branagh talking about a ‘Macbeth’ film, the latest video from ‘Every Frame a Painting’ exploring cinematography, and Nicolas Cage praising Hayden Christensen’s performance in ‘Star Wars’ (oh my).
