It’s Friday and you know what what means? Happy hour and a drunken stupor that lasts until Monday? Sure, why not?
However, it also means it’s time for a brand new episode of The Flickcast! Speaking of that . . .
On this week’s show Chris and Joe talk more about the upcoming Star Wars movie, the potential MST3K revival, Heroes Reborn, Blindspot and wax nostalgic about Mr. Robot. They also discuss The Flash, Arrow, The Walking Dead and don’t hold back their feelings on a potential Snowpiercer TV series.
Picks this week include Chris’ pick of the movie Spectre, and Joe’s pick of the recent performance of Peter Capaldi as “The Doctor” in that show about the Doctor who travels through time.
As always, if you have comments, questions, critiques, offers of sponsorship, or whatever, feel free to hit us up in the comments, on Twitter, at Facebook, Google+ or via email.
Once again we’re back with an all-new episode of The Flickcast for your listening pleasure. Three weeks in a row! The record is building once again.
On this week’s episode Chris and Joe discuss a bunch of new and recurring topics. Some of these include the next Bond film, SPECTRE, newly announced casting for Suicide Squad, more on the Flash / Arrow crossover epic extravaganza and a whole lot more, more, more.
Yes, the Oscars were last night and without putting too fine a point on it, Chris and Matt did reasonably well in predicting the outcome. The only real surprise of the night was Argo‘s win for Best Picture.
Sadly, this was probably a result of director Ben Affleck’s snub for a Best Director nomination. Still, it is nice to win Best Picture. Although, if you ask Argo producer Grant Heslov, who just couldn’t let it go, it wasn’t enough and we really need to know Ben Affleck was the Director of Argo.
No shit. Thanks for pointing that out. Look we get it, you’re angry your buddy didn’t get nominated. Sure, that hurts, but you need to let it go now. Ben is going to be just fine. . . and so are you.
We’re also glad Tarantino got a win for writing Django Unchained and it was nice to see Christoph Waltz take one for that movie as well. He did a great job in it. And lets not forget host Seth McaFarland. Great job Seth. You killed it.
Anyway, for a complete list of winners, click on through. Before that, however, take a look at the trailer for Jimmy Kimmel’s latest opus Movie: The Movie Part 2. It’s pretty funny.
Yes, that’s right. After a bit of time apart to “find themselves” and/or work on solo projects, Chris and Matt are back together again for an all-new season of The Flickcast.
And to kick things off, the boys talk all-things Oscar and make some predictions about who and what will take home the gold guy during Sunday’s festivities. Plus, they take a bit of a detour through the upcoming Star Wars movies and the various casting rumors as well as the most recent installment of the Die Hard franchise.
Hopefully you won’t be too disappointed but Chris and Matt don’t make any picks this time around, mostly because they don’t know if that bit is going to continue. So that means you don’t have to link to anything this week.
However, if you do want the picks bit to continue, let us know via the comments. And, if you have any other comments or suggestions about the show, feel free to let us know that too.
Look for brand new episodes of The Flickcast right here each and every week!
As we’re a site covering the movies, it would probably be a disservice not to put up something about the Oscar (aka Academy Award) nominations which were announced this morning by Seth MacFarlane and Emma Stone. So yes, the nominations are here and as always there’s a few surprises, a few “snubs” and the rest is rather predictable.
Here’s the nominations for your reading pleasure. Look for the actual ceremony, featuring host Seth MacFarlane, to air on Sunday, February 24th on ABC.

About 15 minutes in I decided I wanted some popcorn, and upon looking at my phone, it appeared that an hour and a half had passed. From what I understand, that hasn’t been the standard reaction across the Internet, but for me at least, Django was incredibly easy to watch, and not for a moment did I want it to end.
The structure is right in tune with many Spaghetti Westerns (itself being one more in a long series of unofficial sequels to Sergio Corbucci’s 1966 film Django): the compacted serial with each episode lasting a half hour or so. There’s an overarching plot, but just as much does it like to get sidetracked in subplots.
The main story centers around Django (Jamie Foxx), a runaway slave many times over who only wants to be reunited with his wife. He has the good fortune of meeting up with Dr. King Schultz (Christoph Waltz), a German dentist turned bounty hunter, hot on the trail of the notorious Brittle Brothers. Django, a former acquaintance of the Brittles, is the only man alive who knows what they look like, and Schultz, gleefully operating within the laws and well versed in all the loopholes, buys Django to help him hunt down the bounty.
Here’s a new trailer for Quentin Tarantino’s Django Unchained. This time around the trailer takes us to the lighter side of this tale of revenge and features an appearance by Jonah Hill, among the previously shown cast of characters.
Look for this one to drop on Christmas day. Meantime, here’s the new trailer.
After some casting news, a poster and some official photos, the first teaser for Quentin Tarantino’s Django Unchained has arrived. I won’t go into too much detail about the teaser, but let’s just say it looks to be another very interesting movie from Tarantino and perhaps a fitting successor to his last effortInglourious Basterds.
As a fan of the director and his work, I’m probably a bit biased here. Still, that doesn’t mean this movie won’t be great. I think it probably will.
Or, at the very least, it won’t be boring — which is more than I can say for a lot of movies these days. Check out the teaser after the break. Look for Django Unchained to hit theaters on Christmas day.
With a few directors working in Hollywood today, you never really know what to expect and that makes their films even more fun to watch. One such director is Quentin Tarantino who’s upcoming Django Unchainedpromises to be very unexpected indeed.
Previously, we brought you some stills from the upcoming film. And now, there’s more. This time around we get a better look at the actors and a shot of the director in action, which is always fun.
In case you’re not familar with the film, it’s set two years before the Civil War and focuses on a former slave called Django (Jamie Foxx) who must join forces with a ruthless German bounty hunter called Dr. King Schultz (Christoph Waltz) to free his captive wife from the clutches of evil plantation owner Calvin Candie (Leonardo DiCaprio). See what I mean, unexpected.
Check out all the new pics after the break. Look for Django Unchained to hit theaters Christmas Day.
