Beagles to Bullets: John Wick Chapter 3 Parabellum

Join host Bryan Dressel, Matt “Zombie Dog- All of the Dalmations” Dykes,  Ryan “Comet” Lootens, and Joel “Fly” DeWitte as they avoid getting kicked in the face by a horse.  This movie takes the franchise in a bold, exact same direction, but keeps the Binge Buddies more than entertained.  Few movies have impressed us more while still not being perfect.  When the armor is this pretty who cares if there are a few cracks!?!

Sion Sono: Tokyo Tribe (2014)

Our Sion Sono retrospective continues with the rap opera Tokyo Tribe, a doozy of a film that starts out rough and then ends with one hell of a punchline. It features a cast of fascinating and colorful characters that sing their way through bouts of ultra-violence. It features perhaps one of the most fun and over-the-top villains we’ve seen yet on this podcast. And if that weren’t enough, it features the daughter of a satanic high priest kicking all kinds of ass with her banana-eating kid sidekick. Have we convinced you to watch the film yet?

Of course, with a filmmaker like this it’s worth looking into the themes he plays in and we found an interesting article to be our guiding star through this month.

Scarlett Johansson: Lucy (2014)

We continue our trek upward in our month of ScarJo and reach the Luc Besson oddity Lucy, which we didn’t mind as much this time around. Sure, there are a lot of flaws in this film and as soon as we start tugging at those loose threads the whole thing falls apart, but ScarJo is good in this, Morgan Freeman is entertaining, and the car chase sequence is rather exciting (even if she could have just flown over all the cars).

We also discuss The Avengers briefly, and ScarJo’s run as Black Widow. She has fun in the role, but there’s a particular scene that’s a bit of a sticking point for our hosts. Anyway, there’s a lot here so come join us, won’t you?

Joe Dante: Burying The Ex (2014)

We bring our month of Joe Dante films to a close with probably one of the weaker films in his arsenal: Burying the Ex. Despite the letdown, there’s still a lot to like here. Anton Yelchin, may he rest in peace, brings energy and nuance to a character that’s difficult to love, and Alexandra Daddario and Ashley Greene steal the show with characters that are awesome, three-dimensional, and written well. It’s the little things that bring the movie down like the brother and some awkward plotting and logic. Is it worth the watch? We give you the scoop.

We also discuss Looney Tunes: Back in Action, as well as the “It’s A Good Life” segment out of Twilight Zone: The Movie, both of which are quite fun and really showcase that Dante chaos we’ve come to enjoy through our month of Dante.

What an absolute treat this month has been.
