Ep. 22 - The Scent of Rain and Lightning (Winter’s Bone meets The Burning Plain)

February 28, 2018

SORALPromo.jpg

Thanks to the Nashville Film Festival we were able to check out THE SCENT OF RAIN AND LIGHTNING which stars Maika Monroe, a young actress who first got our attention in IT FOLLOWS. Maybe with that on the brain we ended up with an episode theme based around another previous rising star in Jennifer Lawrence and in particular her roles in feuding family films THE BURNING PLAIN and WINTER'S BONE. Thankfully (?) for our listeners this is a far more agreeable episode and we woiuld be even more agreeable if you gave us a follow at the links below:

Ep. 21 - The Party (Rebecca meets Rope)

February 27, 2018

ThePartyPROMO.jpg

On this episode we throw a Hitchcock themed podcast party for Sally Potter's new film THE PARTY. This Kristen Scott Thomas and Patricia Clarkson starring movie is fast, aggressive, and darkly funny; which means that this cast of characters would fit in nicely at a dinner party to celebrate getting away with murder in the 1948 classic ROPE. Or maybe the focus would be on the missing guest such as in the other Alfred Hitchcock joint REBECCA? We'll let you decide as you can listen to the episode and give us feedback at the links below:

Ep. 20 - Entanglement (Silver Linings Playbook meets Anomalisa)

February 14, 2018

EntanglementPROMO.jpg

For Valentine's Day we offer up a triple feature of being snared by love for new release ENTANGLEMENT. This Thomas Middleditch and Jess Weixler starring romcom reminds us of the manic pixie dream girl trope and how it can be subverted with a seriously manic male lead, be it Bradley Cooper in SILVER LININGS PLAYBOOK or David Thewlis in ANOMALISA. One of your hosts also convinces the other one to not do a Valentine's Day first time watch with the wife of Weixler's breakout film TEETH.

Ep. 19 - Bomb City (SLC Punk! meets Fruitvale Station)

February 10, 2018

BombCityPROMO.jpg

On our latest episode we discuss new release BOMB CITY and how we approach real life tragedy as entertainment. Does the apprehension we feel over the fate of the real life characters on screen add to our appreciation of the moments that the filmmakers chose to present? And just why was one of your hosts so damn nervous about possible life-changing events when watching SLC PUNK! for the first time? Find out this and maybe a little more as we once again praise Ryan Coogler and Michael B. Jordan (what else is new?) in this episode and at the social media outlets below:

Ep. 18 - West of Her (Before Sunrise meets Death Proof)

February 6, 2018

WestOfHerPROMO.jpg

On the road again with Chris and Mike of PROJECTING FILM. A pair of podcast lovers who fancy themselves as Celine and Jesse from Richard Linklater's BEFORE SUNRISE but in actuality are more like Zoe Bell and Kurt Russell from Quentin Tarantino's DEATH PROOF. We'll leave that up to the listeners which one is the cowardly stuntman... BUT FOR NOW we have yet another indie film gem from 2018 with Ethan Warren's WEST OF HER. A strikingly beautifyl film full of stolen shots and stolen moments also manages to keep its feet on the ground and provide the spark of a romance between two people who travel the country together but are heading in very different directions. Also they aren't Chris and Mike. So well worth spending your time with them instead. On that note, follow us at the links below!

Ep. 17 - Kate Can’t Swim (Your Sister’s Sister meets The One I Love)

February 2, 2018

KateCantSwimPROMO.jpg

On our latest episode we travel with three films to cabins in the woods and find the usual horror movie tropes: awkward encounters with friends, emotional outbursts that push people away, and revelations that forever change the bonds with those we love. Which is to say that new indie film KATE CAN'T SWIM gets it all right and if you like what you saw in YOUR SISTER'S SISTER and THE ONE I LOVE, make a point to check out the feature debut of writer/director Josh Helman. If you do, maybe we will get the sequels of various KATE CAN'Ts that our hosts so desperately want.

Ep. 16 - Please Stand By (Planes, Trains & Automobiles meets Nurse Betty)

January 30, 2018

PleaseStandByPROMO.jpg

On this episode we hit the road with Dakota Fanning in her new film PLEASE STAND BY about a Trekkie pursuing her dream of getting her script produced while her family catches up with her (in more ways than one). This inspires a look back at not only our previous episode on THE ROAD MOVIE (hey you should download that) but also that blend of fantasy in NURSE BETTY and the harsh realities of travel in PLANES, TRAINS & AUTOMOBILES. Along the way we both embrace and reject Patton Oswalt's proud use of the Klingon language.

Ep. 15 - The Road Movie (Book of Shadows: Blair Witch 2 meets Leviathan)

January 25, 2018

RoadMoviePROMO.jpg

On this episode we try to make something of the dash cam footage provided in new release THE ROAD MOVIE, and of course we come up with a mash-up of experimental documentary LEVIATHAN about commercial fisherman andddddd the BOOK OF SHADOWS, the much loved sequel to THE BLAIR WITCH PROJECT. Along the way we discuss the need for guidance from documentarians and our favorite films of 2017.

ALSO we debate which Franco brother your hosts are more like, and unfortunately for the winner of the James Franco contest, this was of course recorded before yet another round of allegations against an actor mentioned on this podcast. Enjoy!

Ep. 14 - Humor Me (Mallrats meets Beginners)

January 15, 2018

HumorMePROMO.jpg

On this episode we look at the relationships between fathers and sons and the jokes that develop along the way as we revisited Kevin Smith's MALLRATS and Mike Mills' BEGINNERS for the new release HUMOR ME. This indie film starring Jemaine Clement and Elliott Gould opens with crass humor that repeatedly antagonizes its audience (okay mainly just the son character played by Clement) which aligns perfectly with our goals for this podcast. So put in your earbuds and get weepy with us as we debate the merits of a stink palm as a bonding experience between two men.

Ep. 13 - Mr. Roosevelt (Greenberg meets Young Adult)

January 6, 2018

MrRooseveltPROMO.jpg

MR. ROOSEVELT is what happens when one host assumes that this is a political thriller starring Gary Oldman, and instead is pleasantly surprised to find something far closer to Noah Baumbach's GREENBERG and Diablo Cody's YOUNG ADULT. In these three films about going home to reconnect with former friends and lovers, we did you the service of waiting to release this episode after the holidays... and also when you can take a look at Noel Wells' new comedy which has just hit Netflix streaming. Enjoy and hug your pets while listening!
