005-Fast Five (2011)

Published / by Mac

We’ve all seen Pokémon we know the rules you can’t go from Squirtel to Blastoise. There are no skipping steps in evolution. So I want you guys to do me a favor and look around at your group of friends. If they start developing new mind blowing CIA hacking skills, if they somehow survive bus crashes with nothing worse than a little dust settling on their shoulders, or they are being hunted by an oiled up charismatic ex-wrestler (or current wrestler depending on what new movie he’s in that needs promoting). You might want to take stock, because you could be living in a Fast and Furious movie. Hope you guys enjoy our host’s review of Fast Five! (Show note: Once again our apologies for the poor audio quality, however we have finally corrected it with proper microphones and a better set-up so it should be smooth sailing from here on out. Thank you for your patience.)

Funcast: Episode IV-A New Hope for Glenn (SPOILERS)

Published / by Mac

A not so long time ago in a galaxy so close it’s actually ours… A special edition Walking Dead Funcast just for you guys! In this episode Mac goes off about all things Walking Dead from the Glenn controversy, to Morgan’s Jedi Knight skills, and to overall zombie squishiness while Jay and Googs just sit there and let it happen. This one kind of got away from us. Also SPOILERS ABOUND! Beware to avoid being butthurt if you are not caught up on the newest season (6). Also make sure you stay tuned to the end. The Philmaniacs have a very special announcement regarding some movie reviews that will be out this December for the holiday season!

004-Fast & Furious (2009)

Published / by Mac

The Philmaniacs return with a fiery vengeance with the fourth installment but this time it is just: “Fast & Furious”. Now I’m sure you guys are like us when you watch a movie and something happens that’s so ridiculous, so utterly impossible that you don’t possess the requisite vocabulary to describe what just happened to you. Well fear those moments no longer because the Philmaniacs bring you a term to label those moments: “roll cage”. This film released back in 2009 saw the reunion of Dom, Brian, Letty, and Mia. Also there is a surprising appearance by the one and only Han! How is this possible you ask? Can this reunion breathe life back into the franchise? And what would it take for Jay to leave the Podcast? Sorry but we can’t give you answers here, you will just need to listen to find out!

Funcast 003-Crappie

Published / by Mac

We all like to follow celebrities and the movies they’re in and the Philmaniacs (mainly Mac) are no different. Perhaps you like to follow the exploits of comic book man Kevin Smith, and are scared to death of him losing even one more pound and turning into a piece of paper with a gross beard. Or possibly you lament the AMC channel’s once thriving crop of reality TV shows dying out thanks to that damn Walking Dead show. All this and more on the Philmaniacs newest Funcast! (Show note: our apologies on the sound quality as we have been experimenting with different microphone set-ups to give you the best sounding show possible)

003-The Fast and the Furious: Tokyo Drift (2006)

Published / by Mac

Hey do you remember that third Fast and Furious movie? You know, the one supposed to be set in Tokyo where everyone speaks English for some reason. Starring Paul Walker’s southern accented stunt double with nine miles of forehead. The one that was probably responsible for your crappy Honda Civic having no tire treads. The Fast and Furious movie we like to pretend never happened (except for Han) the Fast and Furious: Tokyo Drift (2006). Well, we reviewed it. So order some sushi and listen to us while you drive home for the full experience. We know you’ll enjoy our review more that the movie itself. Cue: Bawitdaba da bang a dang diggy diggy diggy said the boogy said up jump the boogy!

Bane says: “be a pal and listen now!” (Show note: our apologies on the sound quality as we have been experimenting with different microphone set-ups to give you the best sounding show possible)
