It's just Brian and Zaki for this week's installment of the MovieFilm Podcast, but they have plenty to discuss. First up, Zaki offers his thoughts on The Great Gatsby and the all-new animated feature Superman Unbound. After that, a discussion on the latest Hollywood Headlines, including the delay of the much-anticipated (by us) Jurassic Park 4, and what it means for the future of the hallowed dino-franchise. Also, they take a look at the new trailers for Anchorman 2, Riddick and the upcoming TV series Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. In addition, Zaki interviews with director Sarah Polley about her fascinating new documentary Stories We Tell, and he and Brian go in-depth and all-in on spoilers for a lengthy chat about Star Trek Into Darkness, discussing the plot, what works, what doesn't, and why it failed to take off at the box office as expected.

In addition to that, the gang picks up apart the trailers for Thor: The Dark World and Now You See Me, dish on the latest news out of Star Wars land, and weigh the pros and cons of yet another Die Hard sequel hitting theaters.

When it came time to record the big 20th episode of the MovieFilm Podcast, Brian was too busy earning a living to join us, but Joblo.com News Editor Paul Shirey gamely jumped in at the last second to pinch-hit, joining Zaki and Sean for an in-depth discussion on the estimable ouvre (however that's pronounced...) of one Thomas C. Mapother IV, a.k.a. Tom Cruise. In addition to talking up Cruise's newest opus, big budget sci-fi'er Oblivion, they also delve deep into his catalog of successful and not-so-successful entries, and attempt to divine how (and why) the one-time Jerry Maguire has had such a consistent track record at the global box office for more than thirty years. The gang also goes gaga over the extended trailer for much-anticipated Superman reboot Man of Steel, wonder if there's an audience for the newest iteration of The Lone Ranger, and asks what the heck is going on with Amanda Bynes. There's plenty more than just that, though, but you'll have to stream or download the show via the link to catch it all.

On this week's show, Zaki starts things off with an exclusive interview with actor Jim Sturgess about his new film Upside Down. After that, the MovieFilm gang discusses why big budget fairytale Oz the Great and Powerful is a hit while Jack the Giant Slayer isn't. In addition, they talk up the Academy Awards and whether Argo really deserved Best Picture, and try to make sense of exactly why some folks seem to really dislike Anne Hathaway. All that, plus the latest developments on Warner Bros.' long-delayed, long-suffering Justice League movie, who is and isn't coming back for Star Wars: Episode VII, and more, all topped off with a Movies That Matter segment reminiscing on 1985's Goonies, and an Oscars-themed quiz administered by Sean.

"Dissecting Die Hard!" For this week's installment, the MovieFilm crew spends the bulk of the time discussing Bruce Willis' latest exploit as Detective John McClane in the critically lambasted A Good Day to Die Hard. Is it just plain fun or just plain dumb? We get into it (with Zaki expanding on his review from last week). In addition, we also talk up the latest developments as far as who might man the director's chair for the next James Bond movie after the skyrise of Skyfall, offer up some very wary predictions on the Oscars, and indulge in a conversation on whether we're past the point where movie stars are popular enough to get people to pony up for tickets. All that, plus a quiz from Brian on the many facets of the Die Hard franchise, the newest developments on Star Wars: Episode VII, and another batch of Listener Letters for this sixteenth episode of the MovieFilm Podcast.

For this week's MovieFilm Podcast, Brian emerges from the hyperbaric chamber that is "film post-production" to get caught up on the latest out of La-La-Wood. In Headlines, we discuss the total floppage of Sylvester Stallone's latest actioner Bullet to the Head (not to mention why sixty-somethings shouldn't use growth hormones), and also talk about why Warner Bros. reboot of Godzilla sounds promising, why their plans for Justice League don't, and the latest news on the upcoming Star Wars: Episode VII. All that, plus discussions on the Super Bowl trailers for this summer's most anticipated flicks, Zaki's interview with writer/director Roman Coppola on writing Moonrise Kingdom and directing A Glimpse Inside the Mind of Charles Swan, and just in time for Valentine's Day comes Sean's movie quiz on romantic comedies.

Sean, Brian, and Zaki are joined once more by JoBlo.com News Editor Paul Shirey for this week's MovieFilm show as they discuss the trifecta of fail that is Arnold Schwarzenegger's The Last Stand, Lindsay Lohan's The Canyons, and the underwhelming Oscar nominations. Speaking of fail, Zaki also interviews comedian Hasan Minhaj about Failosophy, the new show he's hosting for MTV. In addition to all that, we also unpack the trailers for RED 2, the remake of horror classic The Evil Dead, and political thriller Olympus Has Fallen, and we close out with a celebration of Inauguration Day with a quiz administered by Zaki testing the guys' knowledge of presidential movies. This one is packed-to-the-gills and plenty of fun, so make sure to give it a listen! You can stream it below or download at the link.
