+Andy Nelson and +Pete Wright  review one of my favorites -   Thin Man. I haven't seen it in several years. Putting it on my to  watch again list
This week on #TheNextReel, +Pete Wright and +Andy Nelson go head-to-head against Nick & Norah in The Thin Man!

James Wong Howe is often cited as one of the most influential cinematographers there have been. He worked in film from the early days of the silents to the mid-70s when he received his last Oscar nomination for his color work on “Funny Lady.” But his black-and-white cinematography is what he’s primarily known for. Join us — Pete Wright and Andy Nelson — as we start up our Black and White Cinematography of James Wong Howe series with W.S. Van Dyke’s 1934 film “The Thin Man.” We talk about the joy of watching this film, and how it really doesn’t come from the mystery so much as the fantastic relationship between Nick and Norah Charles, probably the most famous sleuthing pair to ever grace the silver screen. We talk about Howe and what he brought to the table in this studio production. We chat about William Powell and Myrna Loy and how their chemistry on and off the screen is some of the best, which must be why they starred in 14 films together. We chat about the rest of the cast as well as Van Dyke and his directing style. And we discuss why a film like this works even if its story isn’t that interesting. It’s a fun film to start our new series and we have a great time talking about it. Tune in!

There's no reason to feel guilty about liking this film. It's a classic. #BuckarooBanzai
This week on The Next Reel 141: The Adventures of Buckaroo Banzai Across the 8th Dimension

As someone once said, cult films aren't born, they're chosen. The Adventures of Buckaroo Banzai Across the 8th Dimension failed at the box office, but the film was just quirky enough to find that fan base and get propelled into cult status. While the film didn't do well enough to warrant a sequel, it did find a big fan in Pete. Join us — +Andy Nelson and +Pete Wright — as we begin our short (but hopefully fun) Guilty Pleasure Series with Buckaroo Banzai.

This week on The Next Reel 136: Blow Out

Anyone who listens to the show knows that we have a love/hate relationship with Brian De Palma. With his 1981 film Blow Out, he makes one of his strongest films and lands squarely on the side of ‘love’ for us (thank the heavens since neither of us had seen it recently and we couldn’t remember it well enough). Join us — Pete Wright and Andy Nelson — as we continue our 1981 series with De Palma’s Blow Out.

This week on The Film Board: GODZILLA!

Japan + Nuclear Power Plant + Misunderstood Fear of Technology = GODZILLA! The Film Board gathers to take on this summer romp and the jury is split. Did this summer’s dose of midtown mayhem lift you out of your seats? Join Tom Metz, +Steve Sarmento  +Andy Nelson  and +Pete Wright  for a chat about all things Godzilicious! Did Gareth Edwards bring his indie spirit to this monster mash? Did Max Borenstein deftly handle the hodgepodge of hands meddling in the script? Was Bryan Cranston in this movie? All these questions answered this week as Godzilla takes it’s place in The Film Board’s Flickchart hall of fame… or infamy!
