Practical or CGI, well aged or spoiled like rotten fruit, special effects in movies are an accomplishment of their own in some form or fashion (usually) and one of our favorite reasons to watch a movie and something everyone remembers about a movie for good or bad. Friend of the show Claire returns to Good Brews Bad Views to discuss The Cell while we try to figure out when exaclty does a movie rely too much on the visuals, being weird and transgressive for it’s own sake, which results in ultimatelly leaving the narrative a little lacking. But don’t worry we also crack wise at Jenny from the Block and Vince Vaughn as we enjoy some tasty Gose as well.

From Ivan Reitman, director of such comedy classics as Ghostbusters and Stripes, comes a movie with such glaring product placement you’d think you were watching a James Bond film: Evolution. Witness David Duchovny at his most wooden, Julianne Moore’s perpetual lack of balance, Sean William Scott at his Sean William Scott-est, all while Orlando Jones captures the hearts of the GBBV Crew while they drink a brown ale that tastes like coffee and donuts and laud over the practical effects.
“What you’re telling me we’re some kind of movie where this orc is a fantasy standin for instituionalized racism?” – Cut Lines from Will Smith’s Dialog.
For this episode Good Brews Bad Views dig’s into Netflix’s first big budget sci-fi movie Bright, as we like to suffer for your enjoyment. Ryan, James, and Max dig into everything from the worldbuilding, vernacular, and seriosuly bipolar policemen showing this movie does not lack in topics for discussion. Luckily we brought a few stupidly awesome beers with us to aid us through another David Ayer mess.
Usually here at Good Brews Bad Views we dig into movies that are somewhat known to allow you the listener to watch along with us if you so choose, and while they are often bad they are somewhat enjoyable. This episode we change that by going to the bottom of the barrel with a gem of a bad movie that can only be described by the phrase “fantastically terrible”

If you’re listening to this podcast/reading this blurb chances are that 1995’s GoldenEye was the first James Bond movie that you can remember being released in your lifetime. Some would say it’s actually a pretty decent movie. To find out Ryan, James, and Max revisit the 1st Pierce Brosnan helmed movie to see if this is true and to check up on how the movie has aged over 20+ years. Surely all the references that Russia is no longer the USSR won’t be glaring obvious right?

Merry Christmas/Hannukah/Kwanzaa/Fesitvus/Whatever from all of us at Good Brews Bad Views! For our second Christmas episode this year we witness a Pre-Mr. Freeze Arnold Schwarzenegger try to buy his son’s love, a Pre-Anakin Skywalker Jake Lloyd, in 1996’s Jingle All the Way. Alongside the rampant commercialism and insanity displayed in this movie James, Ryan, and Max discuss their cherished Christmas presents from years past while Sinbad makes a bunch of jokes that would no longer fly in 2017.
Appropriately timed for both the release of The Last Jedi and the Holidays, GBBV starts off the season with the often mentioned and utterly horrible Star Wars Holiday Special. Joined once again by friend of the show Jordan (Spider-Man 3, Batman and Robin) and foregoing the usual beer for whiskey (something stronger was required) the guys dig in deep with conversations about fandom, representation, gatekeeping, and expanded universes as they suffer through the special with the occasional screams of “why?!?!” and “Who is this for!?!” as the podcast slowly descends into madness.
