Projecting A Father’s Day Where We DON’T COME BACK FROM THE MOON

Projecting A Father’s Day Where We DON’T COME BACK FROM THE MOON

June 16, 2020

As one of our hosts is a father who seemingly loves nothing more than to get in touch with his particular form of weepy manhood with a Sam Mendes movie, the other host (the real man) decided to allow a celebration of Father's Day by using DON'T COME BACK FROM THE MOON as our buffer to avoid real life experience or feelings. This Rashida Jones and James Franco starring film looks at parental abandonment with apocalyptic tones that remind one of our hosts (the real man) of WHERE THE WILD THINGS ARE... and the other one brings up Sam Mendes YET AGAIN. Happy Father's Day.

Projecting a Summer Body of Shame for RESULTS

Projecting a Summer Body of Shame for RESULTS

June 15, 2020

As we enter the summer season proper there's no better time for your two favorite movie podcasters to promote body shaming by watching Cobie Smulders and Guy Pearce being fit, attractive but more importantly incredibly unfulfilled in RESULTS. Which is all the encouragement we need to stay schlubby like our man Kevin Corrigan. Prepare yourself for a very motivational podcast.

Projecting Sex from Hal Ashby: SHAMPOO

Projecting Sex from Hal Ashby: SHAMPOO

June 13, 2020

Now that the love of a septuagenarian is out of the way we can get to the magnificent hair and sad sex of Warren Beatty in SHAMPOO. Which is really what this podcast has been building to all along.

Also syndication. Sweet, sweet repeat episodes so your two favorite movie podcasters don't have to speak to each other and can spend time with their family.

Or just googling pictures of peak Warren Beatty. Whatever we need to keep producing the greatest commentary on film the world has ever known. You're welcome.

Projecting Love from Hal Ashby: HAROLD AND MAUDE

Projecting Love from Hal Ashby: HAROLD AND MAUDE

May 26, 2020

GAC_Harold_and_Maude_2_at0s8.jpgSandwiched between the hilarious gentrification in THE LANDLORD and the sad bastard sex romp that was SHAMPOO we got a creepy kid with a substantially much older woman in HAROLD AND MAUDE. As this is the dynamic between one of your hosts who is full of vigor and vitality and the other one is named Chris, we decided to bring on a mediator to balance out the age gap in discussing this classic film. Anderson Cowan of THE FILM VAULT talks excessive enthusiasm for a trip to the movies and a distaste for not giving appropriate attention to darkly comic performance art from one's child. Enjoy!

Projecting 50 Years of THE LANDLORD

Projecting 50 Years of THE LANDLORD

film_landlord.jpgThe people spoke and we listened... you got your fifty year anniversary episode of Hal Ashby's masterpiece THE LANDLORD.

We spoke and Kino Lorber listened... our suffering through a VHS rip of THE LANDLORD caused the powers that be to listen to us and now a blu-ray edition of this great film exists. You're welcome.

At the end of the episode we also admire the boobs as a doorbell poster but only AFTER we direct our male gaze at the star Beau Bridges. Because we are leaders in film discussion.

Projecting 25 Years of FRENCH KISS

Projecting 25 Years of FRENCH KISS

May 12, 2020

ProjectingFrenchKiss.jpgFor twenty-five years both hosts of this widely respected program had managed to avoid Lawrence Kasdan's masterpiece FRENCH KISS. Today this mistake has been corrected with no consideration given by the rights holders as this is strangely a lost film with no current digital distribution. A film that managed to succeed at the box-office and give Meg Ryan a victory over her former costar (the hideous Billy Crystal) for best romcom set in France in May 1995.

And that's something that even Stanley Kubrick couldn't achieve. Think about THAT.

Also we revisit our ethical debate from THE CABLE GUY, defend Weezer's choices and blame Goo Goo Dolls for everything. Twenty-five years of FRENCH KISS!

Projecting A Date Night at the Clam Casino with MANIAC

May 5, 2020

caroline-munro-1.jpgThe love affair between two grown unavailable men continues for two weeks in a row with a date night at the Clam Casino in... MANIAC. And if you thought Elijah "Radio Flyer" Wood was too sexy for you, never fear for we are talking about the 1980 original of this loving look at a lonely man with an impressive mannequin collection and an even more impressive beer gut. After listening to this one, dear listener, the attractive partner in your life will thank you for the mood being appropriate set. As one should expect from any halfway decent podcast.

Projecting Social Distancing from SWIMFAN

Projecting Social Distancing from SWIMFAN

April 28, 2020

SwimfanBanner.jpgProjections this week inspired by a watch of SWIMFAN include:

  • Amazon Prime is punishing SWIMFANs old and new with their 4:3 aspect ratio.
  • High school affairs are a necessary evil to keep the kids social.
  • One host continues to shock the other with just how vanilla he is.
  • The Internet on film peaked mid-90s w/ riveting action in DISCLOSURE & THE NET.

... and a few other things on SWIMFAN. But just a few. Promise.

Projecting Good Liars of GOOD TIME and GOOD NEIGHBOR SAM

Projecting Good Liars of GOOD TIME and GOOD NEIGHBOR SAM

April 9, 2020

GoodTimeFeelinThis.jpgOn our episode celebrating not Good Friday (as that would not only be offensive but inaccurate as your dear host was just very late with his podcast editing) but the good liars of cinema (remember a movie called THE GOOD LIAR? Yeah that proved to be of no podcast promotional help, damn you Helen Mirren) we welcome author Chris Vander-Kaay to discuss GOOD TIME and GOOD NEIGHBOR SAM. One film has a former vampire made good in the eyes of Film Twitter and the other stars Jack Lemmon terrorized by a duck and wife swapping. Makes you wish you'd seen that one, eh?

Check out Chris Vander-Kaay's book SPOILER ALERT!

Projecting EMMA. as CLUELESS meets AUSTENLAND

EMMA_SD18_1_28_3_SC110_01401022-scaled-1320x741.jpgKarly of CoreTempArts and Natasha of Kentucky Geek Girl attempt to class up the podcast for our episode on Jane Austen in film... but not just any films! Films with... cute... punctuation like new release EMMA. continue the tradition of Austen's work being placed in decidedly offbeat settings such as CLUELESS and AUSTENLAND.

The moral of the story here is that your host doesn't read but watches quite a few movies. Enjoy!
