Queen and Slim take Knives Out to The Irishman

It's Thanksgiving in the Good 'Ole U.S. of A, and that means there's a few big movies to watch between turkey dinners for our American fans... and for us in the True North Strong and Free, who ate our bird weeks ago.

Unlike years past, one of the most anticipated films of the weekend -- and in fact the year -- isn't landing in theatres, but is debuting on Netflix. And it's directed by a Hollywood legend, and stars a trio of Hollywood legends.

Jason and Shawn will tell you all about it, and the weekend's other big releases, when From The Basement takes to the Radio NL 610 AM airwaves at 6:05 PST tonight!

In addition to discussing The Irishman, Knives Out and Queen and Slim, the Basement Boys have a new interview for your earholes. Jason spoke with martial arts filmmaker Jennifer N. Linch about her upcoming mashup Kung Fu Ghost. The two also get into the gender politics of filmmaking, making this conversation a timely one.

Meanwhile, Jason and Shawn have a semi-heated discussion about the latest -- and last -- Rambo movie and It: Chapter 2. And they share the weekend entertainment rundown, plus a whole lot more.

So you know what to do. Tune in at 6:05 via the AM dial, or the player to your right, and enjoy.

Stick with us!

Will "Batman" actor "bale" on a "Justice League" movie?

One thing that entertainment news shows and websites have in common is that they report on rumours floating around the ether in regards to upcoming movie projects and the names that might possibly be attached to them.

This article continues in that proud tradition of saying, "Here's some juicy movie gossip".

In the wake of the extremely popular "Avengers" movie- and even before it, there has been rumours of Warner Bros. and DC Comics putting out a "Justice League" movie.  The current round of rumours surrounding this project are pretty much as follows:
1.  Warner Bros is courting Christopher Nolan of the recent "Dark Knight" trilogy to be involved with pretty much EVERY superhero project at the studio.  Nolan is also responsible for bringing Superman to audiences with "Man of Steel".  This rumour has been enhanced by the fact that a re-write of the "Justice League" script was ordered a few months ago; 2.  Zack Snyder is …

Review: Daredevil Season Three

While the Mighty Marvel Cinematic Universe has proven a powerful force at the box office and among fans, Marvel's Netflix lineup is a bit shaky. Each series has its own merits (maybe not Iron *spits* Fist) but only The Punisher has managed to hold my interest through the full season.

The Punisher and, of course, Daredevil.

Daredevil is hands down the best of the Marvel Netflix shows, and one of the few remaining now that Iron Fist and Luke Cage have been cancelled. The series continues in fine fashion with this third season. In fact, after a slow warmup, this could be the strongest run yet for Matt Murdock and company.

Jason versus Halloween: The Curse of Michael Myers

When you think about it, this sixth entry in the Halloween series was made 18 years ago. The SIXTH film. Four have been made since and the first film is about to celebrate its 35th anniversary. Talk about a legacy!

Six years ago, Michael Myers terrorized the town of Haddonfield, Illinois. He and his niece, Jamie Lloyd, have disappeared. Jamie was kidnapped by a bunch of evil druids who protect Michael Myers. And now, six years later, Jamie has escaped after giving birth to Michael's child. She runs to Haddonfield to get Dr. Loomis to help her again. Meanwhile, the family that adopted Laurie Strode is living in the Myers house and are being stalked by Myers. It's the curse of Thorn that Michael is possessed by that makes him kill his family. And it's up to Tommy Doyle, the boy from Halloween, and Dr. Loomis, to stop them all. 

Any of that make sense? Not really? Don't worry, there's enough plot holes and abandoned story threads in this flick to fill 35 year…
