On this episode, we present another commentary track on the 1997 film, Alien: Resurrection. The film turns 20-years old year, and to celebrate, Mox and Ono do a viewing. Mox can't handle certain scenes and Ono tries to break the film down by pointing out goofs. They also talk about other films while dogs are barking in the background. It's was a good time! Be sure to prep your copy of the film to sync along with and Ono will let you know when to hit "play." Listen and watch along with us!

On this episode, Mox and Ono come with up with a new segment, JCVD 5th Sundays. As the title suggests, they will do a ccc-ommentary style show with a film starring the one and only, Jean-Claude Van Damme. The two kick off the segment with a viewing of the Roland Emmerich film, Universal Soldier (1992). One of Mox's favorites of JCVD, for Ono, not so much. Be sure to prep your copy of the film and they'll cue you in when to hit "Play."

On this episode, the boys Mox and Ono have a chat with friend, film maker and writer, CK Thackery. Mox drills him with questions, Ono chimes in from time to time and CK knocks them out of the park. It's a fun chat and discussion of indie film making, structure, approach and the work that goes into a film. And a bunch of other stuff too. We also chat about CK's work and his short film, FrIEND. Good times indeed. Grab a drink, sit back and relax, and enjoy our talk about film.

On this Cinebite, we continue on with the Schrody's Ladder Segment - Thoughts Without Words - Part 02 of When Animals Dream (2014). If you haven't, please check out Cinebite #29 in which Mox and Ono watched When Animals Dream in the original dialogue without subtitles, trying to figure out the story's premise from what they see on screen. On this segment, they re-watched the film (with subtitles) and try to match from what they assessed from the action they've seen to what the story is actually about. They were close.

On this epiosde, the boys Mox and Ono watch the film, When Animals Dream (2014), for a new two-part segment Mox came up with, Thoughts Without Words. For this, Mox and Ono watch a film in another language other than English, and without subtitles, and try to breakdown the films' premise and plot by what they see and hear on screen. They haven't read up on the film and have no clue to its' background and storyline. Prep your copy of the film and watch along as they try to breakdown the film by breaking the language barrier. The second part of this new segment will be released later this month in which Mox and Ono will have viewed the film a second time and see how close they were to understanding this movie. This should be interesting.

On this episode, Mox and Ono discuss the second full-length feature film by David F. Sandberg, Annabelle: Creation. Mox enjoyed it. Ono really enjoyed it. The first 90 seconds into the discussion, Ono thinks Mox was talking about Annabelle: Creation, but Mox was actually talking about Lights Out. It's a bit confusing, so please bear with us. And be sure to check out this bomb-ass film. Thanks for listening!

One year ago today, Mox and Ono released the very first episode of Cinephiles and Cenobites. Didn't think we'd still be producing episodes/cinebites. We have a lot of content. And for no real reason other than we like watching and talking about movies and music. On S2EPZERO, we talk about the up and comings of the podcast, its' direction and format. Sort of. One Year, Still Here.

On this episode, Mox and Ono do another around of CCC-OMMENTARY (commentary) on the cinematic masterpiece, Predator (1987), directed by John McTiernan. The boys talk about delta force, drop trivia on the film, and observe and point out parallels between the predator and the rescue team. It gets interesting. Mox drops mad knowledge and Ono just gets mad. We have a few quiet parts due to technical distortions and Ono losing it. Cue up your players and sync your copy of the film and listen and watch along with Mox and Ono. They'll you know when to press "Play."

On this episode Mox and Ono talk about their recent viewing of the latest film in the new series of the Planet of the Apes franchise, War for the Planet of the Apes, directed by Matt Reeves. Mox tries to recall certain scenes (he fell asleep during key scenes) he may have missed, and Ono fills him in on some plot points while he tries to figure things out as well. We both enjoyed the film though. Heavily.

On this episode, Mox and Ono do another round of CC Commentary for the month of July (expect these at least once a month) on Rapid Fire (1992), directed by Dwight H. Little, starring Brandon Lee. They talk about The Crow a lot, Mox runs on several tangents, and Ono tries to keep it together. He doesn't. That's why there is a moment of silence between 44:04 to 48:21. He is ok now. Be sure to prep your players and sync your movies properly. They boys will let you know when to hit "Play."
