THE MANDATE Episode 8: 47 Meters Down

File this one under “we sat through this so you didn’t have to”. For this week’s episode of The Mandate, I got with Tony Ortolano of the infamous South Jersey mosh riffers, Dissent, and we sacrificed all good judgment with a screening of the Mandy Moore lead, 47 Meters Down. Going into this film all I knew was that Moore was the lead, it had an oddly specific depth for a title, and that it contained sharks. All of this I got from a lame cutout advertisement in which you could pose as if you were being eaten by a

GOT ME A MOVIE Episode 03: Always Intense

Hello again, friends and fiends! On this episode of GOT ME A MOVIE, we’ll be talking about Alex Cox’s stylish feature debut, Repo Man…and Alex Cox’s flub of a sequel (remake?), Repo Chick. Repo Man is often championed as a symbol of freedom, a quintessential representation of the spirit of Los Angeles punk rock in the early ‘80s. It’s a film that’s often hard to describe: is it a comedy? It has humor, but it’s strangely more serious than that. Is it science fiction? I mean, there are aliens…right? Is it a car movie? Not quite. But what’s definite about

THE MANDATE Episode 6: THE MUMMY

  In this episode of the Mandate, I sit down with longtime friend and show goer, Tony Corrado, to see Tom Cruise lead reboot of The Mummy. Two films with Brendan Fraiser and a half a dozen spinoffs, and direct to DVD sequels to those spinoffs, sent the franchise into financial and critical hell. Universal has decided to breath life back into the series by starting fresh. It’s also meant to serve as the jump off point for the new Dark Universe that will feature the likes of The Invisible Man, Bride Of Frankenstein, as well as other unconfirmed Universal

WELCOME FRIENDS, ENEMIES, CRETINS AND DANDYS! I dunno. Yes, it is another stage-divingly good episode of CINEPUNX! On this episode we have the Q&A portion of our event, the Philly “Premiere” of THE NEW YORK HARDCORE CHRONICLES FILM! The event was a lot of fun, but it also was maybe not what we expected it to be. So we recorded a lengthy introduction with our co-presenter and friend of the show and host of L!F!P!  Joseph Gervasi. Basically, if you wanna hear us discuss how it went, the idea of punk documentaries, and maybe some other random stuff, that is the

The Mandate Epic First Episode (3,4,5): THE VOID, THE GUARDIANS OF THE GALAXY VOL.2, and WONDER WOMAN

The ManDate is almost a 2 year old idea finally coming to fruition. I was fortunate enough to be on an episode of Cinepunx way back in October 2015. It was this podcast that I was finally formally introduced and struck up a friendship with Josh Alvarez. In the following months we had discussed the idea of trying to see at least one movie every week. Admittedly, this was Josh’s idea and I was there to follow. It took a few months but we finally started to check out flicks. After the first one, the idea of “The Weekly ManDate
