#641 - Leatherheads

#641 - Leatherheads

2024-05-2414:34

AKAPAD THE FILM BUFF EPISODE 641 In 2008 Geroge Clooney directed and starred in a period piece that serves within the period that it's presented in, this is a rare feat and a dwindling skill of today's filmmakers. Leatherheads is a goofy fun movie with enough heart and plot to keep you going, not perfect by any means there is still far more to admire and appreciate. The style of comedy may have gone over the heads of the critics back in the day, but this was not the case for Peter A DeLuca AKAPAD because he got what style that is, as a Film Buff should.
Harold Lloyd and directors Fred C. Newmeyer and Sam Taylor introduces a wealth of movie tropes still used to this day. Just because it's a silent movie made in 1925 does not mean it's not influential. So much of what we live in film started here.

1977's SEMI-TOUGH stars Burt Reynolds and Kris Kristofferson in a football comedy and shows off THE MAN of the sport, but it wants to be a bit more critical of marriage and see;f-help.This style of comedy would never be made today and because of that, we have to pay attention to this film.
Charlton Heston stars as a New Orleans quarterback gradually approaching a mid-life crisis as his career nears its end. "Number One" didn't initially make AKAPAD's list of American Football films for discussion and review. However, this unexpected gem took him by surprise, delivering a compelling narrative possibly sponsored by the NFL itself.
Carter Smith has emerged as one of the premier young directors of our age. The Passenger is best described as a self-help movie dealing with the inflictions of the past portrayed through a violent depressing lens. The movie should be praised and heralded and because it's not mentioned in award season proves how broken this system is. AKAPAD the Film Buff champions this movie as pure cinema and nothing else.
#633 - We Are Marshall

#633 - We Are Marshall

We Are Marshall McG's 2006 overlooked Football powerhouse movie deserves attention not from a perfectly executed technical film but from what might be the most tragic plane crash scene ever put to film. We have an all-star cast in front of and behind the camera - this movie deserves your attention as it reveals that the sports genre unlocks what professionals can do in the film business.
Once long ago Peter A DeLuca believed Oliver Stones' Any Given Sunday was the greatest football film of all time, North Dallas Forty has changed that opinion.
Part of the Matthew McConaughey come back double feature (MUD being the other) Killer Joe showcases a dark hurt filled world with a small moment of hope. There are few movies like this.
#630 - The Martian

#630 - The Martian

2024-02-1511:16

To AKAPAD The Film Buff The Martian solidifies Ridley Scott as the greatest filmmaker of all time. His career is long vast and winding. The Martian should not be as likable as it is, and that comes from the absolute skill of Matt Damon who deserved more attention for this role.
In 1991 the golden age of Football comedies ended this is a packed spectacle featuring some of the top young comedians of the day.

The Creator needed a bigger push at the box office and has not lit the internet on fire once it became available on HULU, why have audiences not adopted an original movie such as this?
#625 - White Squall

#625 - White Squall

2023-12-1116:17

White Squall is yet another film that showcases Ridley Scott's mastering of the elements and film production as a whole. When it comes to the difficulty of shooting at sea or replicating it White Squall is ahead of its time and never discussed when it comes to this point.
In this episode, AKAPAD the Film Buff answers the question should you go to see Godzilla Minus One?
#623 - Blue Beetle

#623 - Blue Beetle

James Gunn announced DC's Blue Beetle as episode one of the new DC Universe series. Finally, AKAPAD the Film Buff jumps into this movie with an open heart and open eyes. Is this the beginning of something much bigger?
The final film for 2023 that I'm thankful for is 2010's The Other Guys an absolute monster of a masterpiece.
2006's Invincible introduced AKAPAD The Film Buff to the idea if a film needs to be great to be a well-directed movie. This thought is something not in any film conversation at all. Because of Invincible we now have to ask if only the great films are attached to the great directors.
1492 Conquest of Paradise solidifies an uncomfortable truth about Christopher Columbus. He is a monolith of heartbreak and tragedy. Ridley Scott directs an epic that missed the mark back in 1992 but today is far more impactful than ever.
#619 - Blackberry

#619 - Blackberry

2023-11-1612:54

Blackberry is one movie of a new Hollywood trend, the business bio-pic. As trends unfold we get a spectrum of styles, takes, and visions, we have intense performances in the depiction of a company that should have never gone away. Blackberry asks basic questions and speaks to the big picture. This is an ironic fiery piece that teaches as much as it rocks.
