Hollywood's biggest night is fast-approaching this Sunday at 7 PM, and the only way to do an event THIS big was to do our biggest episode ever! To do that, we are joining forces with the Classy Little Podcast to discuss everything Oscars in our massive Oscar BLOWOUT! This, however, is more than just a crossover- we're mashing both shows together, so you'll hear your favorite segments from us and some great segments from James and Emily. In fact, you may have already listened to this episode over at http://www.classylittlepodcast.com/show-notes/28, but our episode clocks in at a much healthier 99 minutes, including some segments recorded just for our release. We also edited them separately! 

We won't go into our full picks here in the show notes, so for a FULL rundown head over to www.epicfilmguys.com/oscars-2016 and check them out. Also, please let us know YOUR picks for the upcoming awards show! We're not really interested here in "picking the winners," meaning getting our picks 100% right. I think the business of picking Oscar films should be to root for the films you love and want to win. The alternative has always seemed relatively lifeless to me, as the Oscars are extremely easy to pick anyway!   

Our guests from the Classy Little Podcast lead things off with some Oscar trivia and fun facts, including why you might want to practice your acceptance speech while holding a human head. Emily has some tips on how to win an Oscar pool whether or not you are a cinephile, and James will talk about some Oscar winners who may have peaked and faded.  

Last but not least, in this week's Epic Previews segment, we're going to be reviewing the teaser trailer for Disney's remake of Pete's Dragon, as well as taking a look at the upcoming Ghostbusters documentary "Cleanin' Up the Town" which features interviews from literally everyone involved in the production of both films including the twins who played Oscar- except for Bill Murray and Rick Moranis. What did we think of this development? Stay tuned!

Colossus: Language please, Deadpool.
Deadpool: Oh, suck a cock.

That's right ladies and gentlemen, both myself and Epic Film Guy Justin had a chance to check out the latest game-changing superhero film starring Ryan Reynolds: Deadpool! This review was so big, we simply couldn't do it on our own and have a special guest on the show to talk about the movie. We're proud to welcome long-time listener (and Nick's college friend) Dan Brenic on the show! Dan has long been campaigning for the role of Spider-Man, but has thusfar been overlooked by Marvel and Sony. Maybe we can bump him over the edge!

Along with that, we're also going to talk about Guardians of the Galaxy director James Gunn's comments that Hollywood will take the success of Deadpool the wrong way. Is he right? Will studios just start jamming out R-rated superhero projects to try to cash in on the "next big thing?" In that vein, word is coming that both Wolverine 3 and the X-Force film will both be rated R, and Spawn is a name that has suddenly popped up in the conversation again with creator Todd McFarlane reporting the script is done, but he has yet to shop the script to studios. 

Not to be forgotten, in the Epic Previews segment tonight, we'll be looking at that new Batman v Superman trailer that landed last week, as well as taking a look at the new trailer for season two of Marvel's Daredevil, which features Jon Bernthal as The Punisher. We'll also be discussing the trailer for Pee Wee's Big Holiday, the first feature-length outing for Paul Reubens' iconic character in decades.

"Would that it 'twere so simple." The Epic Film Guys had a chance to check out the latest from the Coen Brothers: Hail, Caesar! This film has divided many film fans and critics as to whether or not this film is a brilliant satire or a meandering collection of shorts without any real purpose. Nick and Justin are here to set you straight with our full review! Starring George Clooney, Josh Brolin, Tilda Swinton, Ralph Fiennes, Alden Ehrenreich, Scarlett Johansson, Frances McDormand, and Channing Tatum.

There's been a lot of talk about Batman v Superman recently, with more trailers and footage being released, and producer Charles Roven labeling Batman "Judge, Jury, and Executioner" in the upcoming film. Does this mean Batman is a killer? Nick and Justin will weigh in, as well as touching on Zack Snyder's recent comments that he didn't change Superman from the "true canon." How do you feel about it? Sound off below!

The Super Bowl is in the books for another year, with the Denver Broncos defense coming up big against Cam Newton and the NFL's biggest offense. During the game, several TV spots aired for upcoming films, and we've got ALL of them in a super-sized edition of Epic Previews this week! We're taking a look at Batman v Superman, Civil War, Deadpool, The Jungle Book, Independence Day: Resurgence and MORE! 

You can find Epic Film Guy Nick's full review of Hail, Caesar! at our website here: http://epicfilmguys.com/2016/02/17/Hail-Caesar-Review.

Noomi Rapace is OUT of the Prometheus sequel, which is now titled Alien: Covenant. This film has certainly stumbled quite a bit on its journey to being the sequel to the Alien prequel, but is this just another reason that this film shouldn't be made? Nick and Justin will discuss the ongoing woes of the Alien franchise. Justin also sounds off about the now-canceled Friday the 13th reboot, and as you can imagine, he is one unhappy horror fan. 

Last week, Emily from the Classy Little Podcast joined us to mediate our fan Q&A, but there were so many great questions and we didn't want to leave anyone out. This week, sit back and enjoy part two of our Q&A, featuring: an epic rant, favorite chick flicks, and we discuss Darth Vader's place in the upcoming Star Wars: Rogue One. All that, and who would play the Epic Film Guys in a movie about us? Once again we'd like to thank Emily of the Classy Little Podcast for mediating the event for us.

This week in the Epic Previews segment, we'll be taking a look at the trailer for Why Bother: The Movie AKA Cabin Fever, the remake of Eli Roth's 2002's horror film that is being produced by Roth. Is it too soon for this remake? Justin sounds off! We also took a look at the red band trailer for Green Room, starring Patrick Stewart, Anton Yelchin, Imogen Poots, and Alia Shawkat. 

The guys had a chance to check out the Oscar-nominated Room, and Epic Film Guy Nick was able to see Saoirse Ronan's Brooklyn this past week. We've got mini-reviews of both films here, and we are leading up to the 88th Academy Awards at the end of the month. Look for us to review those films we haven't seen- and to look back on those we have- before the big show. 

To tie into the Academy Awards, we're happy to launch our brand new February challenge! This month we're doing our Oscar winner challenge. Ten best picture winners that you haven't seen; that's all you have to do! Let us know what you've watched and we'll compile all of the films you're watching over at http://www.epicfilmguys.com. 

That's right, I said www.epicfilmguys.com!! We officially have a website! In the coming weeks and months we'll be focusing more and more attention over on the website, with some new graphics and the EFG store. For now, head over to the page (still under construction) and check out the new face of the Epic Film Guys!
