What if we told you that the first Fast and Furious movie was not the first Fast and Furious movie, but an even older entry in the franchise, not only exists, but haunts the very electromagnetic spectrum waves that inhabit our internet? Well it’s true, buddy, and buckle up, cause this is a wild and crazy ride of 1950’s values. Directed and starring John Ireland, this movie is…something. Let’s explore it together, right here on Zero Credit(s).

Finally, two white guys in their 30s weigh in on Greta Gerwig’s Barbie (2023). We know you’ve been clamoring for our thoughts and here they are. We tried to not talk about Ken too much (and failed) while also tackling the larger themes the film explores. Also we only saw the movie once before recording this.
SPOILER ALERT: This episode contains spoilers for: Barbie (2023).

Here we stand on the precipice of the end. Fast X. The second (or third) to last movie. How does the Louis Leterrier directed, Justin Lin written movie fair? How does Jason Momoa stack up to the all time great villains of the Fast Saga? And most importantly, where does Fast X come in for the rankings between Henry and John? All of these questions painstakingly answered, right here on Zero Credit(s).

Well, we’re finally here. The end of the long and winding road that has been the Fast and Furious Spy Racers series on Netflix. Six seasons. 52 Episodes. Some of which, we actually covered. It all comes down to this, the final two episodes. Will they cement this series into the eternal hall of capital G, capital C Good Content, or will this series live on in infamy as being a weird, cheap cash-in of one of the greatest series of car based movies of all time? Let’s find out. You ride. You fight.
2022 was a great year for movies, and this week’s Supplemental Reading topic is no different. An international hit out of Tollywood, RRR is an over-the-top action and romance filled mythical retelling of a pivotal moment in India’s battle for independence from the English Raj that asks a simple question: what if Alluri Sitarama Raju and Komaram Bheem met? And also what if they were superheroes? John and Henry journey to the center of this movie, exploring its themes and singing its praises, so get on that horse, we’ll be on this motorcycle, right here on Zero Credit(s).
You’ve asked for it and it’s finally, finally here: the Zero Credit(s) Supplemental Reading of the Spideredman who refuses to go home. What insights and tricks of the trade did the ZC Boys pick up on upon this rewatch of the final movie in the Spider-Man Home trilogy? You’ll just have to find out by listening, fams. All of our opinions and a couple of facts (and more) are right here, on Zero Credit(s).
In 2011, a small company had a vision – to trick the elderly and confused into finding their movie in the bargin bin at the checkout of the local gas station and think it is one of the best action movies of all time (Fast Five). That company is The Asylum and the movie they made is 200 mph, a thrilling movie with “fast and the furious like” action that we had the unfortunate pleasure to uncover, and boy is it unfortunate. From terrible CGI to baffling plot and setting choices, this movie is a lot to take in, so let us take it in for you. Spoilers abound so do yourself a favor and watch this movie before listening to us tear it apart (out of love…for the genre).
Seldom does it happen that John and Henry both see a movie in the same timeframe without planning to do a Supplemental Reading. This is one of those times. Independently, John and Henry saw Everything, Everywhere, All at Once by Dan Kwan and Daniel Scheinert and both of them came to the same conclusion: this movie warrants a SupRed. Please do yourself a favor if you haven’t seen this movie yet and go see it. Words will not do it justice, and neither will this episode. That being said, here is Zero Credit(s)’ best effort to try to discuss this phenomenal film starring Michelle Yeoh, Ke Huy Quan, Jenny Slate, Biff Wiff, and James Hong, among others.
Adding its cowl to the ring to join a longstanding tradition of films about the caped crusader, The Batman (2022) directed by Matt Reeves is certainly a movie. We can say that for sure. Now is it a movie worth watching? Yes, yes it is. We can also say that for sure. A fresh take on the oft-time filmed hero, The Batman mixes the high stakes of a superhero movie with the by-the-books methodology of a police procedural to deliver a wholly fresh take on the dark knight, well, fresh for a movie that is. I say that because while there have been many films about Batman and the various takes on the character from the overly campy to the overly grimdark, somehow we’ve never focused on the detective aspect of the Detective Comics character until now. These thoughts and more, all right here, on the Zero Credit(s) Supplemental Reading of The Batman.
In 2020, a man had a vision. Car go space? Justin Lin was assigned the task and boy, does he ever technically deliver. But is the 9th installment of this time-honored franchise a good entry into the official canon of American muscle cars? Only time will tell, folks. Only time will tell. Until then, here’s our hastily rendered opinions based on vague memories and feelings of sitting in a theatre without the ability to take notes!
