Ep237: Web or Grill?

Today, the Kicking the Seat Podcast teams up with Keeping it Reel's David Fowlie for a look at the third big-screen reboot of everyone's favorite web-slinger in fifteen years, Spider-Man: Homecoming! Does Tom Holland's portrayal of radioactive crime-fighter/high school science whiz make the grade, or should Marvel go back to detention? Ian and David offer some passionately diverse opinions in this spoilerific conversation!

You'll also hear some thoughts on Sony's Spider-Man: Homecoming soundtrack; Dolby's new state-of-the-art cinema experience; and another reminder of your patriotic duty to check out the Music Box Theatre's 70MM Film Festival!

Episode 237 won't leave you hanging!

Ep236: Coma Chameleon

Today, the Kicking the Seat Podcast and Keeping it Reel's David Fowlie examine Michael Showalter's festival-favorite rom-com, The Big Sick! Kumail Nanjiani and Zoe Kazan play a couple whose burgeoning relationship is put to the test when she falls ill and he becomes an unlikely caretaker. Does this Judd Apatow-produced, based-on-a-true-story story live up to the hype, or are there some hidden symptoms that require a second opinion? The guys break it all down in an episode that will definitely give you a lot to think about when heading to the theatre.

Also, Ian talks a bit about the return of the Music Box Theatre's 70MM Film Festival, and teases an out-of-this-world episode you won't want to miss!

Episode 236 is doctor-approved, medically induced podcasting!

Ep235: Revving Up BABY

Today, the Kicking the Seat Podcast and Keeping it Reel's David Fowlie peel out with a look at one of the year's very best films, Edgar Wright's Baby Driver! What sets this music-infused heist movie apart from the summer's multiplex lemons? Tune in and find out as the guys dissect Wright's dissection of genre tropes, and struggle to find any real flaws in this thrilling, dangerous, and genuinely romantic film!

Also, the 1976 day-in-the-life comedy Car Wash is now available on Blu-ray from Shout! Factory and, in keeping with the theme, Ian and David offer some quick commentary on the release.

Episode 235 isn't slow!

Ep234: Wreck in Effects

Today, the Kicking the Seat Podcast and Keeping it Reel's David Fowlie transform into critics who care enough about The Last Knight to talk about it for forty-five minutes. If you want to spare yourself the time and expense of enduring Michael Bay's latest, utterly nonsensical two-and-a-half-hour "film", listen to this episode twice--then read David's zero-star review three times veeeery slowly. You'll thank us later.

Episode 234 needs a shower, a tow, and a lobotomy!

Ep233: Amirpour de Force / Ana Lily Amirpour Pt. 2

Today, the Kicking the Seat Podcast concludes its two-part look at the feature films of Ana Lily Amirpour...by talking to Ana Lily Amirpour! The writer/director of A Girl Walks Home Alone at Night and The Bad Batch (which opens today at Chicago's Music Box Theatre) sat down with Ian a couple weeks ago, mere hours before a controversial Q&A that became a minor social media kerfuffle.

Amirpour talks about powering through the transition from small indie to larger-scale filmmaking; adapting her work to comics; and the joys of hiding Easter Eggs in her movies for engaged audience members to crack open.

Also, Ian won't shut up about Wonder Woman, and invites listeners to skip the multiplex this weekend so some truly kick-ass female creators can share the box office love.

Episode 233 has been tattooed, exiled, and left to fend for itself!
