A bi-monthly podcast that tackles films from the IMDB Top 250/Bottom 100 lists

Latest

Pirates of the Caribbean: The Curse of the Black Pearl

Oh, the warm sun on your back, the sand between your toes, and the numerous summer sequels. That’s right! Every summer, production companies try (and usually fail) at franchising a (sometimes) original concept. In Part 2 of this episode, we dissect Pirates of the Caribbean: The Curse of the Black Pearl, the first in Disney’s tremendously successful Pirates of the Caribbean quadrilogy (in a financial sense, that is) to see if it was actually worthy of a sequel…err…sequels.

Opening (Start – 1:17)

Is your summer reading list short? Need to kill some time during these long summer days? Listen to some of our other episodes and let us know if we got it right in our reviews. Also, be sure to check out our Films List and let us know what we should review next!

And don’t forget, next week is Episode 20. We’ll be revisiting some films from the past year that we feel need some more consideration and rank our favorites and least favorites from the past year of exploring the IMDB Top 250 and Bottom 100 lists.

In Part 1 of this episode, we tackle a sequel from the IMDB Top 250, Terminator 2: Judgment Day, as well as a sequel from the IMDB Bottom 100, Superbabies: Baby Geniuses 2.

Can you think of any better way to distract yourself from the summer heat than listening to our discussion of current releases?! …We didn’t think so. Here are some of the most current releases that we were able to distract OURselves with:

Current Releases (Episode 18)

Did Rubber make you look at your car tires in a different way this morning? Does Rabies make you think that all teenagers have rabies and should be approached with caution? Is Christoph Waltz as terrifying in Water for Elephants as he was in Inglourious Basterds? Do you know when these questions are going to end? Let us know your thoughts on any of the films we covered and which movies you’re looking forward to seeing by sending an email to thiscommentisnotyetrated@gmail.com, connecting with us on Facebook, or tweeting us @stillnotrated.

Don’t forget to check out Part 2 of this episode, where we’ll cover two very different summer sequels, Superbabies: Baby Geniuses 2 and Terminator 2: Judgment Day.

Tune in again soon!

Strangers on a Train/Groundhog Day

Okay, listeners, rise and shine, and don’t forget your headphones ’cause a new episode comes out today! That’s right, podcast-podders – it’s… PODCAST FRIDAY! And what a show we have for you this week: tying in nicely with our discussion of Source Code in Part 1, we cover the Hitchcock classic Strangers on a Train and the Bill Murray comedy that just keeps on going, Groundhog Day.

Strangers on a Train/Groundhog Day

Intro (Start – 3:46)

Strangers on a Train (3:46 – 31:04)

Listener Emails (31:04 – 46:31)

Groundhog Day (46:31 – 1:18:15)

Closing (1:18:15 – End)

What do you think? Do these films deserve to be on the IMDb Top 250? Let us know by commenting on this post, sending us an email at thiscommentisnotyetrated@gmail.com, connecting with us on Facebook, or tweeting @stillnotrated.

Have an ideas for future themed episodes? We’re always open to suggestions! Check out our films list and send us your thoughts!

And remember, in just two weeks from today, another episode is coming your way! You know all those summer sequels that are released, but are too wary to see at the cinema? In an attempt to explain what makes for a good sequel and a bad one, we’ll be dissecting arguably one of the best sequels ever made with a discussion of Terminator 2: Judgment Day and Superbabies: Baby Geniuses 2. We’re not going to spoil anything before the next episode, so you’re just going to have to guess which one of those is off the Bottom 100.

Enjoy the episode and go out there and see some movies!

Most Anticipated Releases (April 8-10 and April 15-17)

No plans for the weekend yet? Well, it must be your lucky day! We’re about to make your weekend a bit easier to plan with a list of our most anticipated upcoming releases. That’s right, feast your eyes on these selections from Gavin, Jenny, and Matt, for the weekends of April 8-10 and April 15-17.

Gavin’s Picks

Hanna (April 8) – A great cast, an interesting idea… this almost looks too good to be true.

The Conspirator (April 15, Limited) – Robert Redford directs this period drama about the Federal trials held after the Lincoln assassination. Judging solely by the trailer, the film looks a tad generic, but I give Redford the benefit of the doubt.

Jenny’s Picks

Arthur (April 8) – Who didn’t love the original Arthur starring Dudley Moore and Liza Minnelli? And plus, it’s another opportunity to watch the ever-hilarious Russell Brand.

Meeting Spencer (April 8, Limited) – Judging by the trailer, this may possibly be the worst movie of the year, next to Rubber, of course (you know, the one about the killer tire?).

Matt’s Picks

Hanna (April 8)

Scream 4 (April 15) – The first one was a classic, but are slasher films really worth watching anymore? And after My Soul to Take, can Wes Craven make a decent horror movie anymore? And does anybody care?

Have any movies that you’re looking forward to in the coming weeks? Let us know by commenting on this post, emailing us at thiscommentisnotyetrated@gmail.com, connecting with us on Facebook, or tweeting @stillnotrated. We always love to hear your thoughts!

And remember, stay tuned for Part 2 of Episode 17, going live this Friday.

Current Releases (Episode 17)

It’s finally April! Alas, we were unable to attend Charlie Sheen’s stage performance (#notwinning), but we were able to spend some quality time at the cinema. Here are the winners and the losers we encountered (and no, not every one was winning):

Current Releases (Episode 17)

Intro (Start – 1:25)

Source Code (1:25 – 6:56)

Sucker Punch (6:56 – 14:47)

Limitless (14:47 – 21:48)

Paul (21:48 – 28:40)

Closing (28:40 – End)

Did Source Code live up to your expectations? Does Paul deserve to be placed in the same league as Shaun of the Dead and Hot Fuzz? Have any suggestions on films that you think we need to check out? Let us know by sending an email to thiscommentisnotyetrated@gmail.com, connecting with us on Facebook, or tweeting us @stillnotrated.

If you liked this episode, remember to check back in two weeks for another round of current releases! Not sure which movie you should take your significant other to (or your mothers for some of you out there)? Then check out our most anticipated films for the next two weekends on this coming Wednesday. More in the mood to stay in this weekend? Then listen to Part 2 of our episode (released on Friday) covering a Hitchcock favorite Strangers on a Train and the hilarious Bill Murray comedy Groundhog Day.

Go out and see some movies!
