This week on CinemaJaw Matt K. and Ry The Movie Guy are flyin’ solo, sans guest, still recovering from WingFest weekend. A perfect time to get back to basics, hit some Jaw Announcements, fan interactions and explore who are the best rappers turned actors.

It seems like every single MC to ever pick up a microphone winds up taking a turn at acting. Some for the better, some for the worse (erhem… Vanilla Ice…hrm ahem…). It’s a total crap shoot actually. CinemaJaw drops some science on you to help sort out who have done it best, and who should stick to rap.

Also in the episode our Intern TJ takes on Matt K. in Robot Movie Trivia and Matt and Ry debate who is stranger: Nic Cage or John Travolta. Both Travolta and Cage have surfaced in Civil War era photos (below) and it’s a strange debate in and of itself!

An unprecedented defeat has befallen the US. Our most important ideal, the Freedom of Speech has been compromised by a decision by theater chain and studio owners. This, perhaps more than anything else I have seen from my time in US history, has scared me to my very core. No one could have guessed that Seth Rogen and James Franco would be the catalyst to a thought war, and yet, here we are. Though, to be fair, this conflict has been brewing for decades.

CinemaJaw won’t be able to solve this national issue, but we can help advance to conversation! Let’s do so by taking a look at our Top 5 Controversial Films. These are the films that sparked outrage, ruffled feathers, and caused a kerfuffle. Perhaps why we can learn why people are so damn sensitive for goodness sake! (But, probably not.)


Tim_Barnes_CinemaJaw

Joining us in our exploration of controversy is comedian, fellow podcaster Tim Barnes. Tim’s show It’s All True can be found on the monolithic podcast juggernaut WBEZ. We talk to him about his favorite controversial films as well as how he got started in comedy and podcasting, right down to his favorite podcast apps.

Another jam packed ‘Jaw… nothing controversial about it!

The leaves are falling, and pumpkins are burning, and the clown who lives under your bed is stirring. It’s time again to watch every horror movie you can! Since we have been doing this ‘Jaw for five years, we decided this year to reflect back on the last half decade of horror and present to you our Top 5 Scariest Scenes of the Last 5 Years.

johnLaflamboyRiotFest

As has become our Halloween tradition, we travel to the local (which just happens to be the best in the nation) haunted house and talk with Mr. John LaFlamboy, actor, filmmaker, horror aficionado and haunted house proprietor. John runs Statesville Haunted Prison and City of the Dead, not to mention Zombie Containment at Navy Pier, so he knows his stuff when it comes to scary. In addition to that John has two films under his belt Moleman of Belmont Avenue (available on Netflix) and soon to be released The Adventures of Kitty Zombie, so he knows movies as well. Could there be a better guest I ask you? NO!

Big thanks to John for hosting us as his wonderful attraction. hope you enjoy our Halloween Special!
