Now, I’ve called my podcast Filmcraziest Interviews in the past but this is the first version of my podcast with the new name The Filmcraziest Show, which will officially be its new name soon, though there will still be old episodes still to be posted where I still refer to it as Filmcraziest Interviews. Anyway, on this episode I am joined by writer and director Adam Stovall, as well as actor and co-writer MacLeod Andrews, to discuss their new film A Ghost Waits.
Directed by: Adam Stovall. Starring: MacLeod Andrews, Natalie Walker, Sydney Vollmer. Runtime: 1h 20 min. Released: This film is currently playing as a part of Popcorn Frights' Wicked Weekend. In the unconventional love story A Ghost Waits, Jack (MacLeod Andrews) is a handyman tasked with fixing up a house before the new tenants can move [...]
On this episode of Filmcraziest Interviews, I chat with Adam Rehmeier, the director, writer and editor for the new film Dinner in America, which had its World Premiere at Sundance and has recently won the Audience Award at Nightstream, a virtual genre film festival. The plot: An on-the-lam punk rocker, Simon (Kyle Gallner) and a young woman, Patty (Emily Skeggs) obsessed with his band unexpectedly fall in love and go on an epic journey together through America’s decaying Midwestern suburbs. It also stars Griffin Gluck, Mary Lynn Rajskub, Pat Healy, and others.
If you’ve ever wanted a movie with the abrasive punk rock attitude of Green Room, or the quirky comedy of films like Napoleon Dynamite, you need to look no further than Dinner in America. Simon as a character is in-your-face, abrasive and offensive, and just everything that’s cool about punk rock. Patty is everything sweet and nice but gets bullied for not being the smartest person. She doesn’t even get bullied at school – she’s a 20-year-old who gets picked on by high schoolers because they’re on the same bus route. She totally seems like a character that could fit in that Napoleon Dynamite world, but she’s totally her own person.
Directed by: Vincent Marcello. Starring: Joey King, Joel Courtney, Jacob Elordi. Runtime: 2h 14 min. Released: July 24, 2020. I didn’t care for 2018’s The Kissing Booth, and I liked Netflix’s The Kissing Booth 2 even less. In this sequel, Elle Evans (Joey King) deals with a long-distance relationship with her boyfriend Noah (Jacob Elordi) [...]
Directed by: Dean Craig. Starring: Sam Claflin, Olivia Munn, Freida Pinto. Runtime: 1h 40 min. Released: April 10, 2020. Love Wedding Repeat is a meditation on how love revolves around chance and fate – described by occasional narration from The Oracle (Penny Ryder), but it’s realy just a standard and often annoying comedy with romance [...]
Directed by: Elise Duran. Starring: Alexandra Daddario, Tyler Hoechlin, Kimiko Glenn. Runtime: 1h 34 min. Released: September 13, 2019. This will be a spoiler review so I talk about many plot points. I don’t think it’s worth watching anyway, but consider yourselves warned. Apparently someone had been keeping Can You Keep a Secret? a secret [...]
Directed by: Nisha Ganatra. Starring: Dakota Johnson, Tracee Ellis Ross, Kelvin Harrison Jr. Runtime: 1h 53 min. Released: May 29, 2020. In Los Angeles, a personal assistant, Maggie (Dakota Johnson), working for music superstar Grace Davis (Tracee Ellis Ross), follows her dreams of being a producer when she meets singer David Cliff (Kelvin Harrison Jr.) [...]

Anna (Amy Adams) has been dating Jeremy (Adam Scott) for your years and still no proposal.

Directed by: Todd Haynes. Starring: Cate Blanchett, Rooney Mara, Sarah Paulson. Runtime: 1h 58 min. Released: November 20, 2015. I didn’t fall for Carol as many others have. 30 minutes into the film, I decided to check the Metacritic score because I know whenever I don’t like something that’s great, it at least has an [...]
