It has been a very busy week in the world of film, and the Epic Film Guys are here to run down all the week’s news and talk about everything and anything. In this week’s Epic Previews segment, we’re taking a look at that new Ghostbusters international trailer and defending the film once again from people who seem bound and determined to hate it. Other reviewers have flat-out boycotted the film and refuse to review it, and we’ll also weigh in on that controversy. We’re also reviewing that latest awesome Star Trek: Beyond trailer, and taking a look at the teaser for Disney’s live-action adaptation of Beauty and the Beast, starring Emma Watson.
Last week we mentioned some contests and giveaways, and this week we’ll elaborate on those a bit more. We’re steadily barreling toward our 1-year podiversary, and we’ve got some big plans for that episode. With that said, we’re going to start looking for YOUR opinions on the show, what you’d like us to change, what you’d like us to keep, and anything else you might like to see from the Epic Film Guys. We do this show because we love movies and we love our fans, so if there’s something you’d love to hear, please let us know!
We’ve been busy spreading our wings of late, and now that my wedding and honeymoon are over, we’re getting out there and teaming up with other podcasts as often as possible. Listen for us on the season finale of Pat and Jason Have a Podcast, listen for me in a short segment on this week’s Classy Little Podcast, and you can hear me in the cold open for episode 18 of the World of Ro Podcast. You’ll also be able to hear me guest-hosting over on Poop Culture, where I’ll join Rick Mancrush for his interview with Greg Lamberson, director of the B-movie classic Slime City and his latest horror comedy Killer Rack. We’ll also be featured on Podbean (our host) for the week of May 30th! Thank you so much to everyone for sponsoring and supporting us.
Last but most certainly not least, Justin and myself both got the chance to see the latest from director Shane Black:The Nice Guys! Starring Russell Crowe and Ryan Gosling, the film most certainly left an impression on us, and we want to let you know how we felt about it. Our review is a bit spoiler-y, so if you want to avoid it until you’ve seen the film, the review begins at 12:00 and ends at 30:30. And, in a quick segment for Justin’s Cinema Beat, he’ll give his thoughts on the comedy sequel Neighbors 2: Sorority Rising.
