Ep. 327 - Widows (Spring Breakers vs. Ocean's 8)


We held back on our episode for WIDOWS for its inevitable Oscar nominations. No dice. So how about the same week there's yet another movie about revenge starring Liam Neeson. Well, goddamnit that publicity won't help this little movie podcast. So you know what? Enjoy an early spring break as our episode theme on women pulling off heist movies features SPRING BREAKERS going up against the classier (but perhaps not as neon flashy) OCEAN'S 8. And god help us if we held back this episode any longer. Thankfully our guest Web Bist's impression of Andy Rooney never goes out of style. Or always is. Anyway click these links!

Ep. 326 - A Star Is Born (Death to Smoochy vs. Chicago)


99 FROM 99 host Ben Zuk is back to educate us on NOT ONLY all the versions of A STAR IS BORN but also DEATH TO SMOOCHY. Naturally. The other half of our rivalries in the performing arts double feature is Best Picture winner CHICAGO. And while your host may prefer the Razzie contender starring Robin Williams and Edward Norton, both voices on this podcast seem agreeable to Bradley Cooper and Lady Gaga's Oscar contender. Because God knows that Bradley needs a win in this life.

Ep. 325 - Escape Room (Sleuth vs. 12 Angry Men)


It's early January so that must be a cheesy horror movie we can watch instead of homework films like ROMA. Thankfully ESCAPE ROOM arrived right on time and also gave us the opportunity to let Laurence Oliver and Michael Caine in SLEUTH try to outwit other guys stuck in a room with Jack Lemmon and George C. Scott in the remake of 12 ANGRY MEN. All of this could lead somewhere gentlemanly but instead somehow we get on the subject of Mike Judge's EXTRACT and Zach Braff in THE LAST KISS displaying the finer points of cuckolding. Don't @ us Trump fans. But if you must click on the links below:

Ep. 324 - Bad Times at the El Royale (Four Rooms vs. Seven Psychopaths)


On an episode programmed by a SOBER CINEMA superfine (but definitely not this podcast) Andy From Work joined the show for a New Year's edition inspired by BAD TIMES AT THE EL ROYALE. We go back to the much maligned FOUR ROOMS (though Andy From Work says it's "close a perfect film") where Tim Roth runs into all sorts of nonsense that he must deal with as a lowly bellhop. While in SEVEN PSYCHOPATHS The Great Sam Rockwell creates the nonsense as he tries to help his screenwriter film in his writers block. For movie podcaster's block we simple just went to ETHEREAL BREWING and produced this. Please don't blame the brewery for our stupid movie thoughts at the links below:

Ep. 323 - The Nun (Doubt vs. The Little Hours)


As we head into 2019 we have one New Year's Resolution to make... and that is never trust a nun. To do so Josh Dotson of SOBER CINEMA joins the podcast for the newest entry in THE CONJURING cinematic universe: THE NUN. This inspires a double feature of nuns gone wild with Meryl Streep and Amy Adams in DOUBT and Aubrey Plaza and Alison Brie in THE LITTLE HOURS. One is very suspicious of sexual activity within the church, while the other is ALSO very suspicious of sex acts... but also an active participant. Based on these show notes it seems obvious which film we would choose, but that's why you have to listen to the show at these links below:

Ep. 322 - Boy Erased (Beginners vs. Pariah)


New release BOY ERASED inspires a conversation on coming out in cinema, but more importantly how to record podcasts with pets. This very sensitive subject is handled with grace as your host Mike tells guest Dave Giannini of THE GRAND GESTURE that he'll just include his cat in the episode. Much like the beloved WAR MACHINE vs. WAR HORSE mascot, Brody Boy. I suppose at this point in the show notes I should stop talking about pets and mention that the two older films are great. Mike Mills' BEGINNERS and Dee Rees' PARIAH make this show worth doing (along with the sex and drugs) as they take two decidedly different looks at age groups coming out to their families. And then your host ruins it by mentioning Vince Vaughn's wack-off scene in the remake of PSYCHO as a "gentle push." Enjoy!

Ep. 321 - Instant Family (Traveller vs. Four Brothers)


For our Thanksgiving episode we open up the family for ALL of The Funky Bunch with a triple feature of Mark Wahlberg flicks. The first is new release INSTANT FAMILY which inspires a conversation on adopted families in Mark Mark joints. TRAVELLER features Mr. Wahlberg forcing his way into a family of gypsy con men with the great Bill Paxton as his mentor/adopted father figure, while in FOUR BROTHERS the man who would be Dirk Diggler is avenging the death of his adoptive mother. Along the way we lament the Celtics and wonder why Dwight Yoakam isn't ALWAYS playing the father figure role since he was so good at it in SLING BLADE. You will be thankful once this episode is over! Happy holiday wishes at all the links below:
