Ep142: Kneel Before Zyder!

For this week's second blockbuster episode, David Fowlie of Keeping It Reel joins Ian to discuss Warner Bros' just-released Blu-ray of Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice Ultimate Edition! Does the additional thirty minutes help or hurt the overall film? Does watching the same, long movie twice in a week affect one's appreciation of it? And how important is packaging when it comes to physical media? We'll use our super-sleuthing skills to get to the bottom of these and other burning(ish) questions!

Also, Ian teases upcoming reviews of some new home video releases from Shout! Factory and Olive Films, and drops a very special announcement that is sure to have Manos: The Hands of Fate fans scrambling to book hotel and airfare in Chicago!

Whether you love or hate Dawn of Justice, Episode 142 promises the World's Finest discussion about it!

Ep141: The Choice is Made!

This week, the Kicking the Seat Podcast answers the call with a lively Ghostbusters 2016 roundtable! Following an advance screening of Paul Feig's franchise reboot, Ian sat down with returning opinion pros David Fowlie of Keeping It Reel and Emmanuel Noisette and Harold Egbo from Eman's Movie Reviews. This spoilerific conversation captures our immediate reactions to the film, our thoughts on the controversy leading up to its release, and whether or not we'd like to see more supernatural adventures with these characters.

Also, Ian talks about Shout! Factory's latest 4K Ultra HD release, Flight of the Butterflies, and the "Ultimate Edition" of Warner Bros' Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice! And be sure to check out Eman's latest exciting venture as part of Movietickets.com's Movie Mob! His debut video, which we discuss at the end of the podcast, centers on the controversy surrounding Leslie Jones' Ghostbusters character. It's essential viewing, preferrably before you check out the film.

Whether you wanna slime the haters, or you think these chicks are toast, Episode 141 is sure to make you feel good!

Ep140: MATT ROSS is Fantastic!

The Kicking the Seat Podcast celebrates 140 episodes with writer/director Matt Ross! His new film, Captain Fantastic, hits Chicago today, and Ian recently teamed up with fellow critics/friends David Fowlie of Keeping it Reel and Patrick McDonald of HollywoodChicago.com to interview the star of HBO's Silicon Valley and Big Love (as well as hit films like American Psycho, The Aviator, and Good Night, and Good Luck).

This warm and funny chat covers casting, parenting, and Ross' personal connection to the story of a man who tries to escape the rigors of modern-day life by fleeing to the wilderness with his family.

Also, Ian marvels at the Waldorf Astoria's ridiculously lavish paper towels; endorses Shout! Factory's new Ultra HD Blu-ray release, Rocky Mountain Express; and recaps his involvement with F This Movie's incredible "F Breast Cancer" Podcastathon, which raised over $7,000 for The Magnolia Tree Foundation last weekend!

Here's to 140 more episodes! Thanks to everyone who keeps things kicking!

Ep139: HIGH 5 on July 5!

This week, the Kicking the Seat Podcast lights one up for Charles Band's Evil Bong: High 5! Yes, there are now four Evil Bong sequels, and Ian enlists Mark "The Movie Man" Krawczyk to help cut through the fog. Is there really something to this series about a diabolical, dimension-hopping ganja gangsta, or is it just a ploy to nab couch change from stoners who don't mind a little racism and homophobia blended into their sitcom antics?

Also, Ian talks a bit about Shout! Factory's new release, Endgame, and reminds listeners to tune in this weekend for F This Movie's epic, 18-hour* Podcastathon, which benefits The Magnolia Tree Foundation's fight against breast cancer. 

Someone better call the cops, 'cause Episode 139 has too much junk in the skunk!

You'll find hundreds of reviews there, including The Movie Man's exhaustive video series on the Evil Bong and Gingerdead Man franchises, and their cookie-cutter cross-over, Evil Bong Versus Gingerdead Man! He's also a contributor to We Live Film, and hosts his own regular (and regularly awesome) podcast, The Spoiler Room!

*In the episode intro, I mistakenly refer to the Podcastathon as being "a day and a half". Math was never my strong suit.

Ep138: DEMON Worship

This week, the Kicking the Seat Podcast puts on its best face to discuss Nicolas Winding Refn's fashion-world horror fantasy, The Neon Demon! Following an advance screening last week, David Fowlie of Keeping It Reel joined Ian to share his thoughts on the film, and to help put it (and Refn's career) into perspective. The guys' chat concludes with a few words of appreciation for the late, great Anton Yelchin, who'd passed away the day before.

Also, Ian recommends the latest episode of Erik Childress' Movie Madness Podcast (which features a decidedly different take on The Neon Demon), and talks a bit about the film's newly released soundtrack from Milan Records.

Episode 138 gets plenty chatty and catty, so sharpen your knives and strike a pose!
