Netflix Plus!? - Nights

Netflix Plus!? - Nights

2021-05-1202:02:17

Netflix is considering rolling out a new service it’s calling N-Plus. So, what exactly is N-Plus? It seems that Netflix doesn’t even know yet but they’ve been sending out surveys to random customers gauging interest in every potential feature.Coincidentally, just recently we were discussing features we wish the streaming services would adopt. Well, Randy happened to be one of those random customers to get a survey so this episode we break down every feature Netflix is considering. From unexpected features like recipes from Netflix shows to the most basic of options like being able to search or browse.Is Netflix seriously unsure if users would like to SEARCH and BROWSE through this potential new service!? Right up front here we are on board with many of the ideas the streaming giant is kicking around but that won’t stop us from poking fun at the more obvious “duh” features. Plus, what we’ve been watching and a few choice TV & movie headlines.

Mutant Kombat - Nights

Mutant Kombat - Nights

2021-04-2001:46:02

What happens when you can’t decide between a superhero movie, a young adult film, and a horror flick? Apparently a film so forgettable the movie studio almost forgot to release it. Is The New Mutants really that bad and what happened behind the scenes that delayed it’s release for years? Well, it just hit HBO Max so we decided to find out.Also, feeds his Mortal Kombat excitement with the 2020 animated feature Mortal Kombat Legends: Scorpion’s Revenge. It’s basically the Mortal Kombat we all wanted when we were 8 years old… hyper violent and written for 8 year olds.

Eggshell Knights - Nights

2021-03-1702:15:22

We just can’t help ourselves, can we? This was meant to simply be an episode recapping our thoughts on Disney Marvel’s WandaVision now that the series has concluded. And we do, of course! We catch up on the final two episodes of WandaVision, talk about the series as a whole, and how the finale left us.But wait, there’s more! Melanie and Randy have been on a bit of a movie binge! The crew all finally catch up on some notable movies like Spider-Man: Far from Home, Bill & Ted Face the Music, and Atomic Blonde. Everyone is shocked to hear Randy watched Addams Family Values for the first time ever. Plus, Nicolas Cage goes Five Nights at Freddy’s in Willy’s Wonderland, Spider-man goes southern (and angry) in The Devil All the Time, A Promising Young Woman makes good on the Black Christmas remake’s promise, and more.

Gauchos or Groucho - Nights

Gauchos or Groucho - Nights

2021-03-0101:39:14

On this episode we REACT AT THE NEWS. Our favorite old school Flash to return to TV in Stargirl season 2. Also, Stargirl is a thing. A new live-action Superman movie is in the works but not the Superman you might be expecting. Oh, and Hollywood is finally remaking a movie that SHOULD be remade and Edgar Wright is attached to direct!Plus, the Mortal Kombat trailer broke the internet (as the kids say) and we’re all about it. We love/hate I Care A Lot and recommend Freaky. First, though, we dive into the fascinating world of gaucho pants, Groucho Marx, and more.

The G-Crew catch up on the MCU Disney+ series with their thoughts on WandaVision episodes 3 through 6.Melanie and Randy also discuss a pair of mind-bending films.

Then a less strong recommend for the Moorhead and Benson sci-fi thriller Synchronic.Plus, more Cobra Kai talk, #SnyderWatch and more.

Matty D. of the 60s Reboot Podcast joins the Grawlix Podcast crew to discuss the first two episodes of Marvel’s WandaVision series. Is the Disney+ series an interesting move within the MCU or a thin gimmack? How does it compare to the actual 50s/60s TV classics it is aping? Where is all this going? The only way we could answer such questions was with a 60s Reboot Podcast crossover episode!We also discuss other recent viewing including Cobra Kai season 3 (and 2), the final two Phantasm movies, and more.

Happy New Year! What a new year it’s been already, right? For the 2021 New Year’s episode we decided to skip the usual retrospective on the previous year, for obvious reasons. Instead, we’ve got a brand new blockbuster comic book movie AND new episode of Doctor Who to talk about.We get far more heated during our Wonder Woman 1984 review than anyone probably expected. However, we found ourselves pleasantly surprised with Doctor Who’s Revolution of the Daleks. Plus, brief thoughts on Netflix’s Project Power, The Old Guard, and more.

Happy Holidays, ya’ old building and loan! It’s the time of year to bust out the Jimmy Stewart impressions, mix in a bit of Randy Savage because it’s all pizza, and fire up your favorite Christmas classics. And by Christmas classics we mean horror movies, of course.Yes, it’s the gift that keeps giving… the Monster of the Week segment! We gathered the whole Grawlix Podcast and Grawlix Cinematic Universe crew around the smoldering yule log that is 2020 to discuss Holiday horror movies. It just seemed appropriate.Melanie and Randy tag team a double feature of Black Christmas. Melanie first discusses the original 1974 proto-slasher before Randy gets out-SJW-ed by the 2019 “remake”. Jesse brings some levity with the 80s Christmas comedy classic Ernest Saves Christmas. Jasper follows up with a stocking stuffed with ultra-camp in the over-the-top horror comedy Santa’s Slay starring Bill Goldberg.Finally, we stick a bow on the evening with a game! Randy finds the most ridiculous reviews of holiday classics from Letterboxd.com users for a few rounds of “guess the movie by the review.” Yeah, that’s a totally original, never before heard of game… we swear. Enjoy!Originally streamed live December 17th, 2020 via Facebook Live, Twitch, and YouTube.Video replay, show notes, and more: https://grawlixpodcast.com/2020/12/nights-12-17-2020/★ Support this podcast on Patreon ★
Yee haw! This episode we’ve got so much merriment you’ll squeal like a pig. First, for this week’s horror movie Monster of the Week we plunged deep into the backwoods and swamps of rural America. And Slovenia. And South Wales, apparently. Listen, every country has their own version of the hillbilly and that’s the theme of this episode. Hixploitation!Randy talks moonshine and lederhosen with Slovenia’s first horror film, Killbillies (aka Idila). Jesse braved the primitive landscape of 2006 BBC 3 television by revisiting Torchwood Season 1, Episode 6: Countrycide. Melanie wraps the segment with a recommendation of the excellent horror-comedy Tucker and Dale vs. Evil.Then we attempt to take on the relentless onslaught of news from the happiest investor’s call on Earth. Yep, it was Disney’s Investor Day! Just the sound of that has us filled with merriment and wonder.

Forget the news, forget #SnyderWatch, it’s time to talk slashers! Loveable, bloodthirsty, teen stalking, serial killers are this episode’s Monster of the Week. It’s not all horror films, though, because we’re also joined by comic book writer/artist Robert Geronimo.Robert discusses his ongoing comic series Blood Realm (hear our original review of Blood Realm Vol. 1 back on Grawlix Podcast #88). Robert also talks about his new graphic novel, WIREHEAD, which features a cybernetic slasher stalking teens in the Pocono Mountains. You’ll be surprised by which slasher flicks Robert drew inspiration from and his take on Terminator being one of them.Then we segue into the Monster of the Week segment. Jesse digs Richard Stanley’s Hardware out of the sand dunes, Melanie crashes the sausage fest that is Dude Bro Party Massacre III, and Randy rings up the forgotten 80’s grocery store slasher Intruder.

The Monster of the Week this episode is infestations or pests so it’s about to get creepy crawly. Jesse rounds out a trifecta of out-there actors following Nicolas Cage and Christopher Walken in recent episodes with the 2003 remake of Willard, starring Crispin Glover. Melanie gets campy with a better than expected 2009 horror comedy Infestation and Randy discusses the truly bizarre Dario Argento film Phenomena. Wait, Phenomena had mutants, telepathic insects, and a razor blade wielding chimpanzee and STILL doesn’t get a recommend!?On the week’s React at the News segment the trio discuss the surprising Wonder Woman 1984 release announcement, no CGI James Dean for Chadwick Boseman, #DisneyMustPay, and more. Enjoy!Originally streamed live November 19th, 2020 via Facebook Live, Twitch, and YouTube.Video version, show notes, and more: https://grawlixpodcast.com/2020/11/nights-11-19-2020/★ Support this podcast on Patreon ★
Halloween may be over but the horror show that is 2020 continues to lumber forward so we’ve decided to keep the Monster of the Week segments going! With everything going on here in the states we decided the only appropriate monster to discuss was… government.So, each of us discuss a different political or government themed film. Randy revisits the wonderfully dry and poignant wit of In The Loop. Jesse takes the Christopher Walken, David Cronenberg, Stephen King classic The Dead Zone for a walk. And Melanie gets real with the 2016 documentary 13th.On the TV, movie, & entertainment news front we also discuss YouTube pulling the plug on Rewind 2020, Xbox enters the world of Cinevapic, Netflix actually renews some good shows, and more.
