You’ve waited and you’ve waited and, well, you’ve waited some more. We’re sorry about that but, you know, things happen. At least we weren’t attacked by a bear. So there’s that.
The important thing to keep in mind now is: we’re back baby! Back with a brand new episode of The Flickcast!
You’re right, it is a great time to be alive.
On this week’s show Chris and Joe get right back into it with more discussion about Star Wars: Episode VIII, the X-Files, a Punisher TV series likely coming to Netflix, sexisim and racism in Hollywood and a whole lot more. No, don’t worry, the boys don’t get too political on this week’s episode. It’s just about the fun.
Picks this week include Chris’ pick of the film The Revenant, directed by Alejandro Iñárritu and starring Leonardo DiCaprio and Tom hardy, and Joe’s pick of Aaron Trotter’s Brewery Playing Cards.

With all the big studio films that come out each month, we need to remind ourselves to keep an eye out for smaller, indie films that deserve attention. One of these is the upcoming horror/comedy The Revenant.
Winner of the Best Director and Audience Awards at last year’s Fantastic Fest, writer/director D. Kerry Prior stars David Anders (Alias and The Vampire Diaries) and Chris Wylde (The Ten). Here’s a bit on the story from the official sysnpsis:
This breakout horror comedy centers around a fallen soldier who somehow finds he has joined the ranks of the living dead. Bart Gregory (Anders) has just recently been laid to rest – so why is he still up and walking around? The only person Bart can turn to for answers is his best friend Joey (Wylde), and before long the two pals have surmised that blood is life. In order to survive, Bart requires a steady supply of it.
Convinced that no one will miss the drug dealers and killers who have transformed LA into a swirling cesspool of crime and vice, the two friends decide to do law enforcement a favor by cleaning up the streets while collecting the precious blood needed to keep poor Bart from withering away into dust!
Check out the red band trailer (and some bonus clips because we love you) after the break. Look for The Revenant via VOD and in select theaters on Friday the 24th.
