Ep271: Embracing the Chaos (Joe Lynch Returns!)

Today, the Kicking the Seat Podcast welcomes back director Joe Lynch to talk about his latest action/horror/comedy, Mayhem (debuting in limited release and on-demand this Friday)! Joe opens up about creative control; chasing down his artistic dreams while intermittently working corporate jobs; and what it was like helping to bring writer Matias Caruso's unique characters to life on screen with the help of actors Steven Yuen and Samara Weaving.

You'll also thrill to yet another reminder that Joe's podcast with Adam Green, "The Movie Crypt", is absolutely essential listening for anyone who claims to be obsessed with movies!

Last but not least, Ian reminds you that Keeping it Reel's David Fowlie will host a special 30th anniversary screening of Predator tonight at Classic Cinemas Elk Grove! Tickets are only five bucks, and your admission includes a Q&A with David after the movie!

Episode 271 loves nail guns, and ain't afraid to use 'em!

Ep270: Mjölnir Miss

Today, the Kicking the Seat Podcast and Keeping it Reel's David Fowlie become the Asgardians of the Galaxy to take on Taika Waititi's Thor: Ragnarok! How do the latest adventures of Thor, Hulk, and newcomer Valkyrie stack up to previous Thor movies--and to the MCU's other star-hopping serial? And is Ragnarok weird and funny enough to deserve all the pre-release hype?

The guys summon all the power of the heavens to bring you their fresh, funny, and not-so-flattering takes!

Also, Ian rants about movie theatre trash; urges you to prepare for the Cinemapocalypse (unfolding now at Chicago's Music Box Theatre); and tells you about a special 30th anniversary screening of Predator coming up on Wednesday, November 8th at Classic Cinemas Elk Grove--hosted by THE David J. Fowlie!

Episode 270 will smack you with a rubber hammer!
