The MovieFilm Commentary Track: Darkman

DarkmanWho is Darkman?

Listen separately or watch along as we offer our nostalgic reflections of this tale, offer behind-the-scenes stories, and just generally get transported to a simpler time, when a cigar cutter was the most terrifying thing we’d ever seen. Hear it via the embed below or at Apple Podcasts, Stitcher, iHeartRadio, and Spotify!

The MovieFilm Commentary Track: Beneath the Planet of the Apes

BeneathFor their latest commentary track, the MovieFilm boys show some movie monkey love to Beneath the Planet of the Apes, the first sequel to the 1968 sci-fi classic, in celebration of its 50th anniversary.
