The Shining

Jack Torrance takes a new job that pushes him over the edge.

Very, very different from the original Stephen King source matterial but is a whole new thing; a Stanley Kubrick masterpeace. As much as I love this movie it is strange that Halloran spends the subplot of the movie getting back to The Overlook hotel just to killed before he even walks inside.

Burn After Reading

Two gym instructors find the memoirs of an ex-CIA agent. Hilarity ensues

The first time I saw this movie it was in the theater and I laughed myself under the seat in front of me. One of my all time favorite comedies. Check out our awesome comentary.

Let me in

A young boy meets and befriends a young girl vampire.

Derived from the original Let The Right One In, Let Me In is a slow paced, mysterious, horror thriller. Enjoyed this movie and hopefully we had a good companion commentary.

Stranger Than Fiction

Harold Crick falls in love with Ana Pascal all the while hearing a narrator who is writing his impending death.

I love it when a comedian can play a role like Harold Crick, A calculated straight lace IRS agent who falls in love with the free-spirited Ana Pascal. The character is verry different from Will Ferrell’s usual roles of halarious outrageous SNL characters. This movie may be just a bit underrated in some circles but this Fillm Flam may be one of my favorites.

Oblivion

Tom Cruise is a human (or is he) miner extracting the planets resources when he discovers there is more to his surrounding than he ever knew.

Ever see any Sci-fi ever? There is probably some element of whatever movie you just thought of in this one. Oblivion could be criticised for having story elements and concepts from many sci-fi classics; 2001, Moon, Ex-Machina. But somehow the movie seems do pull this together respectfully. This film flams episode turned me around on this movie. While performing the commentary I decided that I actually liked this love letter to sci-fi.

Chasing Amy

Holden and Banky, two best friend and comic book creators, come to odds as Holden falls in love with a lesbian named Alyssa.

As a huge Kevin Smith fan I have to say, Chasing Amy is my favorite of his movies. The tangled triangle between these three characters is intriguing, real, and raw. The movie explores relationships and how sometimes people let something in a partners past get in the way of true love. Jay and Bob are in the movie for about 3 seconds but deliver the most important scene of the movie. Listen to David and myself Kev fan out on this awesome Film Flam!

Kick-ass

A teenager starts fighting crime and getting his ass kicked for the greater good.

David and Bo podcast while watching Dave Lizewski get the shit kicked out of him in this vigilante, underdog superhero deconstruction.

Inception

A group of thieves steal intellectual property from their victims dreams.

Probably based on a Scrouge McDuck comic, Inceptions is an amazing thriller that came out at time when the only thing in theaters was remakes. Not to mention it was written by Christopher Nolan and stars Leonardo DiCaprio and Joseph Gordon-Levitt.
