TrailerTown – Isle of Dogs

Sep 22nd, 2017 Bonus Features, TrailerTown J

If you say “stop-motion” and “Wes Anderson” in the same sentence, you definitely have our attention. Once you say those things and then put together the cast list that Wes Anderson has for Isle of Dogs, you’ve guaranteed yourself that us two podcast hosts will be seeing your movie. It’s no secret that Fantstic Mr. Fox is a favorite of ours, so seeing that same whimsy set…

Netflix's The Punisher

TrailerTown – The Punisher Season 1

Sep 20th, 2017 Bonus Features, TrailerTown J

Frank Castle, AKA The Punisher, was easily our favorite part of Netflix’s Daredevil Season 2. Jon Bernthal brought a grittiness and honesty to the character that was much needed while staying incredibly true to the character. It was only a matter of time before he got his own show, and now we have an official TrailerTown showing us how great this series could be. Step…

The Disaster Artist Trailer

TrailerTown – The Disaster Artist

Sep 12th, 2017 Bonus Features, TrailerTown J

Everybody loves a great bad movie and The Room may be the worst/best bad movie of all time. Since it’s release it has amassed a cult following and even spawned a true Hollywood production of its creation, visualized in this first full TrailerTown for The Disaster Artist. The call-sheet for The Disaster Artist includes names like James and Dave Franco, Seth Rogan, Alison Brie, and the one-and-only Tommy…

Gerald's Game Trailer

TrailerTown – Gerald’s Game

Sep 6th, 2017 Bonus Features, TrailerTown J

If you have listened to our show at all, you are probably aware how much we love Stephen King stories. Having said that, we are the first to admit that many adaptations of his work are not good (looking at you, The Dark Tower). Keeping that in mind, it looks like September is going to be a great month for King fans, with both It and Gerald’s…

Black Mirror Season 4

TrailerTown – Black Mirror Season 4

Aug 25th, 2017 Bonus Features, TrailerTown J

We freaking love Black Mirror. Charlie Brooker has created something that resonates with our souls and we take in new episodes of Black Mirror like Tom Hanks takes in coconut water in Castaway. Needless to say, we were extremely excited to see a sneak TrailerTown of all the season 4 episode titles and snippets when it was released this morning. After crying in happiness and watching…

Last Flag Flying

TrailerTown – Last Flag Flying

Aug 24th, 2017 Bonus Features, TrailerTown J

The TrailerTown for Richard Linklater’s upcoming Last Flag Flying has us incredibly excited for a few reasons. First off, the cast includes Bryan Cranston, Steve Carell and Lawrence Fishburne, which is enough to get us to any film on the face of the planet. Aside from the stellar cast and crew, Linklater is continuing his trend of creating years-in-the-making  spiritual sequels (i.e. Everybody Wants Some!), but the…

The Killing of a Sacred Deer Trailer

TrailerTown – The Killing of a Sacred Deer

Aug 17th, 2017 Bonus Features, TrailerTown J

For film buffs like ourselves, the name Yorgos Lanthimos is not a new one. His films The Lobster and Dogtooth made us think, quiver, cry and cringe and the TrailerTown for his new film, The Killing of a Sacred Deer, looks to keep that pattern going. Yorgos’ movies are a different kind of art, in the vein of Shane Carruth (Primer, Upstream Color), where everything is otherworldly yet horrifyingly terrestrial….

Mother Movie Trailer

TrailerTown – Mother!

Aug 8th, 2017 Bonus Features, TrailerTown J

Darron Aronofsky’s Mother! had us intrigued early on, and we’re happy to report that the first full TrailerTown doesn’t leave us disappointed. Aronofsky has always had threads of horror through all of his films, but his taking a more direct route to horrify us looks like it will pay off in sleepless nights and us never allowing guests into our houses ever again. Who knows,…

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…
