Moustache Lockdown Streaming Survival Guide Part 5 | Beyond the Blockbusters



Part 5 of our Lockdown Streaming Survival Guide brings us to YouTube, and a new show called "Beyond the Blockbusters".


Check out Part 4 of our Survival Guide by clicking here.




In an attempt to achieve some kind of fame, Chase Cousins (JJ Carroll) has started his own movie review show, one in which he discusses some of the greatest movies ever made... often incoherently. Along for the ride are his co-host/assistant Geoffrey (Matt Tory), and a whole host of - not exactly special - guests, as Chase crashes into the movie-loving world with "Beyond the Blockbusters".




Matt Tory and JJ Carroll - the guys behind "The Beech Boys" - are back with their new show. Beyond the Blockbusters is an amusing parody of the many talk shows gracing our screens, not to mention an interesting commentary on the social media generation. It's incredible what people will do in this day and age to be famous, and Carroll's performance as Chase Cousins perfectly embodies that. The man would literally say, do or hijack anything to see his name in lights. Carroll plays the douche exceptionally well, which is especially evident by the bewildered look usually adorning Geoffrey's face. It certainly helps that the two leads seem willing to make themselves look silly for our amusement. Despite their "at-odds" relationship, the two actors have a great chemistry, and this extends to their guest stars - a hilariously varied bunch of curious individuals.




No movie is safe! With each episode our dynamic duo dive into - or merely piddle in the shallow end of - another classic movie. All kinds of antics ensue as these two reprobates, along with a litany of poorly qualified guests attempt to dissect and celebrate the likes of The Godfather and Forrest Gump. Tory is right at home here, celebrating the movies that undoubtedly inspired him to become a filmmaker. As well as seeing his beleaguered Geoffrey attempt to guide his diva of a co-host through the world of film, he's working just as hard behind the scenes as writer, director and producer of the show. And it's good to see that he's still a master of mayhem and calamity, because everything that could go wrong for a show like this, does, and in true Tory fashion. The price of fame may be high, but it's a price Chase Cousins is more than willing to pay, and do you know what? I'm really glad he is.




They say "it'll be alright on the night". Well it definitely won't be with this lot. But with all the melodrama of a poorly produced talk show colliding with a love of movies, it's hilarious to watch them try.


7/10

The Snyder Cut | Wouldn't Be The First Time a Director Got a Second Chance

It seems that a fairly common occurrence amongst movies tied to Warner Bros. is the magical disappearing/reappearing director. Does that mean there's hope for the Snyder Cut? I certainly hope so!


Ever since Justice League hit cinemas in 2017 - possibly even before - fans have been calling for Zack Snyder's original vision to be released. Snyder famously faced issues regarding the darker tone and longer run times his movies were taking, especially after the negative response to 'Batman v Superman'. This of course led to rewrites of the superhero team-up movie, and certain plotlines established or teased in 'BvS' - including the epic Knightmare scene - being dropped. The director then left the production after the tragic death of his daughter. Joss Whedon was brought in by the studio to finish the movie, this included the completion of post production and some major reshoots, further altering the movie. All of which resulted in a movie that is drastically differen…

Dates for Phase 5 of the MCU may have been Leaked

After unveiling Phase 4 of the Marvel Cinematic Universe at Comic Con last month, it's believed that plans for Phase 5 will be announced at D23. But have some of the release dates may have already been leaked?



Charles Murphy (@_CharlesMurphy) - someone who is known for revealing accurate info - has tweeted possible release dates for two upcoming movies. According to Murphy (which "could be subject to change"), Black Panther 2 will arrive in cinemas on 18th February 2022, and will be followed by Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3 on 6th May 2022. These dates are similar to the movies that preceded them, Black Panther was released on 13th February 2018 and GOTG Vol. 2 on 27th April 2017. Both movies had a lot of success in their respective slots, so it makes sense that Marvel would attempt to continue that success with future instalments. It has also been confirmed by James Gunn, that he won't be working on GOTG Vol. 3 until after he's completed production of "The …

JOJO RABBIT | Moustache Teaser Reaction

If Top Gun: Maverick is the most exciting teaser of late, then the teaser trailer for "Jojo Rabbit" has got to be the most bizarre. If you haven't seen it, check it out below:


Taika Waititi's latest movie is based on the book "Caging Skies" by Christine Leunens, and tells the story of Jojo "Rabbit" Betzler (Roman Griffin Davis). A member of the Hitler Youth, Jojo's world view is turned upside down when he discovers his single mother (Scarlett Johansson) is hiding a young Jewish girl in their attic. And the only person he has to turn to as he attempts to deal with all that he's going through, is his imaginary friend...Adolf Hitler (Taika Waititi).

Now I know what you're thinking; "this sounds bat shit insane!" And to be fair, you're probably right. But Jojo Rabbit looks - in true Waititi fashion - absolutely hysterical. It is definitely something you have to see to believe, and that's just the trailer. One thing fans of …
