97 The Batman
This week, BFFC discuss Matt Reeves' THE BATMAN! They'll discuss emo bats, nightclub fight scenes, the joys of good cinematography, and how this film doesn't fit in the DC Universe (and why that's a good thing).
Happy New Year listeners! This episode, BFFC is back to discuss THE MATRIX: RESURRECTIONS. Discussed: this film as a re-evaluation of the trilogy's impact, the ways we update our own stories, Handsome Chads, and escaping the matrix through the power of love.
This week, BFFC take a trip down memory lane with PHANTOM OF THE OPERA (2004). They'll talk Gerard Butler's accent, gondolas, sexy eyeshadow, and why this adaptation succeeds where more recent musical adaptations have failed.

94 Dune
Ha! We're back! And just in time to talk about DUNE, Denis Villeneuve's adaptation of the Frank Herbert classic. BFFC talks the fraught history of the book's movie adaptations, little rock noises, Villeneuve's use of sound mixing in the film, and bagpipes in space.
Ha! We're back! With a special summer episode on (what else) F9: THE FAST SAGA. Discussed: cameos, everybody works for Mr Nobody, "are you there God? it's me, Dominic Toretto", positive masculinity, and, as is tradition, BFFC's pitches for the future of the F&F franchise(*coughtimetravelcough*).
