TEASER: Live-Action Matt And Vince Review ‘The Lion King’

Here it is, folks, our POSITIVELY NO SPOILERS review of the new “live-action” remake of The Lion King, starring live-action, photoreal versions of Matt and Vince. I’m just kidding about the spoilers thing, you actually can’t spoil this movie because it’s basically a shot-for-shot remake of that cartoon we all know and loved from 1994. We loved it because of the totally authentic African music recorded by famous African musicians Elton John and Tim Rice. Will the remake be as good? Well, nothing improves a cartoon like PHOTOREAL LIONS, I always say. Topics include:

-When you say Jon Favreau “directed” this, what does that actually mean?

-Why don’t the lions have dicks?

-How did Billy Eichner manage to transcend this format that destroyed everyone else?

-No but seriously, why don’t the lions have dicks?

-Who decided that the lions shouldn’t have dicks and why?

-Are we too hung up on the lion-dick thing?


Frotcast Bonus: Matt And Vince Discuss ‘Yesterday’ (TEASER)



In this week’s bonus review episode, Vince and Matt discuss ‘Yesterday,’ a movie directed by an Oscar winner (Danny Boyle) and written by an Oscar nominee (Richard Curtis) in which one Indian-British busker is the only one on Earth who remembers The Beatles. First, Matt details the shocking similarities between this premise and a premise he wrote years back as a movie within a movie that was considered the worst movie idea ever. Then we discuss how a premise this good (it’s true, I love this premise!) could turn out this bad (boy was it bad!). And then there was the agony of leaving the theater only to discover that most of our fellow theater patrons apparently loved it! We felt like the only people on Earth who remembered how terrible Yesterdaywas. Yes, this episode was a long and winding road. Vince’s written version of the review lives here.

Please to enjoy, tell you friends, and you’ll never be lonely when you have the Frotcast.


Frotcast Live Riff Episode, Limitless With Joey Devine And Alison Stevenson (TEASER)



For this month’s bonus live riff, the FilmDrunk Frotcast has selected Limitless, the original (lol, kinda?) “what if hunnert percent brain?” classic from 2011. It’s a film that plays like the screenwriter took a bunch of Adderall and wrote a film about SUPER Adderall that gives you superpowers. What if Bradley Cooper took Adderall? Would he court Lady Gaga even more meticulously? Turns out he mostly just gets a haircut and puts on a new suit, transforming himself from David Foster Wallace into Bradley Cooper, handsome movie star.

Joining us on this adventure are Joey Devine from the Roundball Rock podcast and Alison Stevenson of V Single. This is just a teaser, but you can get the entire episode by subscribing to our Patreon at the $20 level. That way you can hear our entire live riff of Limitless PLUS Matt telling the full story of finding out an ex was cheating on him from hearing her on a podcast. What a fun episode! Totally worth your donation! You’ll also get to hear all of our movie review podcasts. You’ll never be lonely when you have the Frotcast.

TEASER: Frotcast Live Riff Of The Steven Seagal Classic, ‘Into The Sun,’ With Yusef Roach And Ashley Ray



Only one Frot can stop the Yakuza! That’s right, this month’s bonus LIVE RIFF is for the 2005 Steven Seagal classic, Into the Sun, available for free on Amazon Prime.

When the Governor of Tokyo is murdered and his wife’s sister is kidnapped, his ex-CIA American brother-in-law goes after the responsible terrorists and in the process uncovers a plot to detonate a nuclear device in the U.S.

This action classic has Yakuza, Chinese gangsters, and former NFL great Eddie George dying in the first five minutes. So many cultures for Steven Seagal to appropriate! Incredibly he never wears outerwear that doesn’t reach at least to his knees. I believe this was Steven’s Matrix phase. Do we think the terribly scaled gun on his back in the poster is deliberate or accidental? Discuss.

Joining us in this week’s riffage are comedians extraordinaire Yusef Roach and Ashley Ray, and Michael Rousselet from The Room/Five Second Films/Dude Bro Party Massacre III. Please enjoy this and tell your friends to donate so they can hear it too! You’ll never be lonely when you have the Frotcast.

TEASER – Frotcast Bonus: Matt And Vince Talk ‘Hellboy’

This week’s bonus episode is now available on Patreon!

This week, Matt and I saw Hellboy, which pretty much everyone hated except for me, including Matt, apparently. Though we do agree that Hellboy is a perfect Gen X protagonist (angry, angst-filled, but secretly believing he’s a good guy). We also agree on a lot of the salient points — like how hilarious it is that Hellboy is summoned by Rasputin during World War II with no explanation of how that happens, and the joy of watching a ball of guts become possessed by the spirits of your ancestors — but we disagree on whether that hilarity was intentional, and how much that actually matters in the scheme of things. We also read the bad reviews and discuss everyone comparing this one to Guillermo Del Toro. Finally we listen to a voicemail story from one of our listener’s crowd experience during The Favourite. Enjoy! You’ll never be lonely when you have the Frotcast.
