Widows Trailer

TrailerTown – Widows

Aug 16th, 2018 Bonus Features, Episodes, TrailerTown J

They say “Too much of a good thing is a bad thing,” but when it comes to Steve McQueen’s newest film, Widows, too many good things look to make an amazing thing! Steven McQueen (Hunger, 12 Years a Slave, Shame) comes back to the screen hard with his Gillian Flynn-penned heist thriller which looks to be a cross between Ocean’s Eleven and The First Wives Club, but with…

Maniac Netflix

TrailerTown – MANIAC (Netflix)

Aug 9th, 2018 Bonus Features, TrailerTown J

There are a lot of names in Hollywood that perk up our ears for different reason. When we hear “Emma Stone” we get interested and excited to see what she’ll try out next. When we hear “Jonah Hill” we wonder which outlandish character he will portray next and how much weight he will have inevitably gained or lost for the role. When we hear “Cary…

Luz Trailer

TrailerTown – Luz

Aug 2nd, 2018 Bonus Features, TrailerTown J

Luz looks like a weird movie. The good news is that we LOVE weird movies, especially weird horror movies. Don’t get us wrong, we will go see studio horror movies like IT and A Quiet Place all day long, but when we hear that first-time writer/director Tilman Singer is making a throwback possession horror movie exclusively shot on 16mm, our ears perk up. Then we saw the…

Overlord trailer

TrailerTown – Overlord

Jul 19th, 2018 Bonus Features, TrailerTown J

When the Overlord trailer showed up this week, we were honestly pretty nervous.  The last time J.J. Abrams threw us a surprise movie he produced we got The Cloverfield Paradox and we’re still trying to forget that one. Then Overlord popped up and just as our eyes began to roll, J.J. tells us this is a WW2 movie about Nazi zombies and we paid attention. Then this TrailerTown came out and…

Summer of 84 trailer

TrailerTown – Summer of 84

Jul 5th, 2018 Bonus Features, TrailerTown J

You may have noticed but J and Q like nostalgia and, both being children of the 80s, when the TrailerTown for Summer of 84 came out, we were immediately drawn to it. One part Rear Window, one part Fright Night, and one part Stand By Me, this new feature by the directors of Turbo Kid shows a lot to get excited about. If you haven’t seen it yet, watch the…

5-25-77 Nashville Screening

You’re Invited: 5-25-77 Screening (and Director Q&A)

Jul 2nd, 2018 Bonus Features J

When 615 Film reached out to us to host the first installment of their 615 Screening Series, we agreed before we even knew it was for Patrick Read Johnson’s 5-25-77. If you aren’t familiar with this film, go back and check our TrailerTown on it from almost 2 years ago (yeah, we’ve been excited about this for that long). This is a really cool event, but we’ll…

Jurassic Park Trailer

TrailerTown – Jurassic Park (1993)

Jun 28th, 2018 Bonus Features, TrailerTown J

Unless you’ve been living under a rock, you know that High Five: The Podcast is hosting Jeff Goldblum Bingo at Diskin Cider in June, July, and August. What you may not know, is that June’s event is completely themed around one of our most favoritest Jeff Goldblum movies: Jurassic Park. When it was released in 1993, Jurassic Park took the world by storm, and for good reason….

Welcome to Marwen Trailer

TrailerTown – Welcome to Marwen

Jun 21st, 2018 Bonus Features, TrailerTown J

In a year where we’ve already had a Hollywood Nice Guy shrink down to doll size and stink up theaters in a movie directed by cinema royalty (talkin’ about you, Downsizing), movie studios decided it was best to release a “Re-Do” of that premise in the form of Robert Zemeckis’ Welcome to Marwen. True, it’s not the same story, and honestly, everything about this TrailerTown looks better than…

Popeye (1980)

TrailerTown – Popeye (1980)

Jun 14th, 2018 Bonus Features, TrailerTown J

We’re going to do something a little bit different for today’s TrailerTown. On tomorrow’s all-new episode, Q introduces a friend to the 1980 Robin Williams vehicle Popeye. Since she’d never seen Popeye, it got us thinking, how many other of you cinematic noobs haven’t seen the fantasy/action/comedy and Mr. Williams’ first starring movie role? We imagine it’s a lot of you, and with the upcoming HBO documentary…

Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse

TrailerTown – Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse

Jun 7th, 2018 Bonus Features, TrailerTown J

Here at High Five: The Podcast, we’re a family show (don’t let the constant cursing and inappropriate references fool you), so when we saw a new TrailerTown for Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse come out, we knew the kiddies would be interested in Sony’s newest take on the Spider-Man character. Honestly, Sony’s upcoming take on the friendly neighborhood insect-based superhero looks really good, even if it may be…
