In this episode we'll be discussing Michael Mann's 1986 thriller, Manhunter. Nobody will argue that Anthony Hopkins IS Dr. Hannibal Lector, but Brian Cox played Lector on screen first, and he wasn't too bad himself. For our thoughts on Cox's portrayal on Lector, as well as our full thoughts on this adaptation of the frist Lector novel, Red Dragon, press play!

Matt McNeal chose this 2002 drama/crime film as a bit of an experiment. He wanted to know which was stronger, our love for Tom Hanks our our hatred towards Leonardo DiCaprio. If you want to know the answer to that question, you'll have to press play and listen to this episode.

I'm starting to think rewatching movies you enjoyed when you were young is a bad idea. First we rewatched I Am Legend and realized it wasn't as good as we remembered. Then the same thing happened when we rewatched Evolution. Now Mike made us watch Zombieland, which we remembered enjoying back in 2009 when it came out. Click play to hear how we feel about it now.

In this episode, we discuss the 2003 action/drama The Last Samurai. This Edward Zwick (Glory, Blood Diamond) directed film is kinda, sorta, but not really based on true events. Tom Cruise and Ken Watanbe star in this Oscar nominated film. Click play to hear our full thoughts!

We're bringing you a discussion of another listener requested movie, The Cabin in the Woods (2012). This Drew Goddard directed horror/comedy has been praised for its innovation of the horror genre through being meta and self aware. Is that enough to make it a good movie? Listen and find out!

Don't let The Green Mile's 3 hour run time scare you away. This adaptation of the Stephen King novel stars Tom Hanks, Michael Clarke Duncan in an Oscar nominated role, and a slew of talented character actors. The incredible story, script, and acting helps the audience connect with the characters in a way that makes the emotional scenes hard hitting and difficult to watch.

In this episode, we discuss Matt McNeal's choice / listener request, UHF. This movie was written by, and stars, 'Weird Al' Yankovic. As with most of his stuff, if you enjoy his type of humor, you'll love UHF. If you don't find him funny, this will make for a laughless hour and a half. Watch the movie, listen to this episode, then let us know your thoughts on our website!

Deadpool was a surprise smash hit when it came out in 2016. While that one was flawed (weak villains, subpar plot, and thin character development), it was entertaining and a blast to watch. We knew Deadpool 2 would bring more of the same humor and fun, but can it improve on the weaknesses of the first one? Listen to this episode to hear the answer, as well as our full thoughts on Deadpool 2!

This was an interesting week for us at NBBR. We were split on last week's episode on The Guest (2014), and we are split on this episode on Annihilation (2018).  This mystery / science fiction movie from director Alex Garland (Ex Machina) is Aaron's favorite movie of the year so far; Matt McNeal hates it. Listen to our discussion and let us know which side you fall on!
