San Diego Comic-Con 2017 (Top 5 Edition)

Jul 24th, 2017 Bonus Features J

If you’re like us, you loved when San Diego Comic-Con 2017 reveals, news, and trailers started to drop late last week. If you’re also like us, you didn’t have the expendable income to fly to California and pay to get into the festivities. Well, loyal Fivers, don’t fret, because High Five: The Podcast has your back and we’ve scoured through the millions of stories and…

The Shape of Water

TrailerTown – The Shape of Water

Jul 19th, 2017 Bonus Features, TrailerTown J

Let’s get this out of the way early, High Five: the Podcast loves Guillermo del Toro, so we were on board with his new project, The Shape of Water, before we knew much of anything about it. After seeing this TrailerTown, we’re diving in head first (pun intended) into this 1960s dream/nightmare. When it comes to monsters and creatures, few do it better nowadays than del…

The Tick

TrailerTown – The Tick Season 1

Jul 12th, 2017 Bonus Features, TrailerTown J

When Amazon first released their pilot for The Tick last year we were over the moon. High Five: The Podcast has a lot of nostalgia attached to The Tick property as we were both fans of the comics, cartoon, and marvelous Patrick Warburton-helmed live action adaptation. Amazon seems to be taking a mixed approach and taking what we loved about each iteration into consideration for their series, which…

Dave Made a Maze

TrailerTown – Dave Made a Maze

Jul 10th, 2017 Bonus Features, TrailerTown J

Every now and then a movie that’s not a Summer blockbuster sneaks under the radar and gives us something off-center and intriguing, which seems to be the case with Dave Made a Maze. This movie looks like a weird amalgamation of Michel Gondry’s Be Kind Rewind and Mark Z. Danielewski’s novel House of Leaves, which is not a criticism in the slightest. Escapism is a popular theme in movies…

Rick & Morty Season 3

TrailerTown – Rick & Morty, Season 3

Jun 30th, 2017 Bonus Features, TrailerTown J

If you’ve listened to our Most Rewatchable TV Shows episode, you know that here at High Five: The Podcast, we are HUGE fans of Rick & Morty. It’s a masterclass in writing for comedy and sci-fi, and the layers of jokes in each episode is mind-boggling. It feels like we’ve been waiting for season 3 of Rick & Morty to begin for 5 years now (it’s…

Stronger Trailer

TrailerTown – Stronger

Jun 22nd, 2017 Bonus Features, TrailerTown J

My G’wahd broh, this Stronger TrialerTown looks wicked good. Get your tissues ready for this when it comes out (you may even need them for the TrailerTown), because Jake Gyllenhaal’s portrayal of a Boston Marathon bombing victim is not only going to tug at your heartstrings, it has every intention of ripping them out and then strangling you with them. From the looks of this peek, Stronger has…

Happy Death Day Trailer

TrailerTown – Happy Death Day

Jun 16th, 2017 Bonus Features, TrailerTown J

Sometimes, when we sit around and wonder to ourselves about movies, a question that comes up is “Why hasn’t someone made a good horror movie using the repeating day framing device from Groundhog Day?” Well, luckily for us, the writers and director of Happy Death Day had the same question and were actually able to get off their asses and make it. We don’t know if it…

Black Panther Trailer

TrailerTown – Black Panther

Jun 10th, 2017 Bonus Features, TrailerTown J

Just like we were surprised and delighted to see how much we loved Chadwick Boseman’s portrayal of T’Challa (Black Panther) in Captain American: Civil War, we were just as surprised and delighted when Marvel released the first TrailerTown for Ryan Coogler’s full Black Panther movie this week. There are laughs, there are heart-stopping action pieces, there are tears, there are restraining orders. It has it all….

American Made 2017 Film

TrailerTown – AMERICAN MADE

Jun 5th, 2017 Bonus Features, TrailerTown J

Here at High Five: The Podcast, we are hit or miss on Tom Cruise, but his new film AMERICAN MADE looks to be an exciting “true story” ride. Between a coke-covered Tom Cruise riding a bicycle to his “should have taken the Cadi’s, boys” delivery, we are excited to see what Tom can pull off with his portrayal of real-life smuggler Barry Seal. Before you make any…
