Reel Film Nerds Episode #124: “Stuber”

Movie Review Podcast

Welcome podcast listeners to Reel Film Nerds land! Today, Mike Talent and Matt discuss a fun summer popcorn flick that definitely will not win any awards, Stuber. Topics that are not about this movie include 40’s, who actually uses Facetime, and Marvel Studios’ San Diego Comic-Con 2019 announcements.

Stuber really caught both of your hosts off-guard. It is a very funny film with a dash of heart and underlying tones about relationships. The action was great, but it was shot a bit too tight for some of the scenes according to Matt. The acting was fantastic. The chemistry between Dave Bautista and Kumail Nanjiani was amazing. The writing was really good and most of the jokes land well, however, there are a few that really don’t land too. The story is not super deep, but it was fun, especially for a buddy cop type film. Both of your hosts agree this is well worth a watch, but it is not a must-see in the theater. If you are itching to get out of the house, you will not be disappointed dropping your hard earned cash on this one. Mike Talent really enjoyed himself and he admits it in the pod! He awards Stuber 3 out of 5 Reels. Matt also really liked this film and agreed with Mike. It is a fun popcorn flick. He gives the movie 3.5 out of 5 Reels.

We got our second screener ever! Whoop! Maybe the RFN podcast is getting a following? We sure hope so. The film we will be talking about for Episode #125 is Chasing Molly starring Kurt Angle, Shelley Pack, and Jim Cashman. If you want to watch it before our review, it is available to download right now on all the major pay streaming services such as iTunes or the Google Play Store. Mike and Matt are looking forward to watching another film off the beaten path.
