Episode 25: Evolution (2001)

12/5/2019
More
Back into the closet of shame I go. This week, it's another solo episode where I desperately try to channel some nostalgia by watching Ivan Reitman's 2001 regular old movie, EVOLUTION. I mean, it's totally fine, but that's all I can really say about it. The film has a stellar cast, some decent comedy writing and some detailed gags, but the sum of those parts is, for me, decidedly mediocre. Which, again, is totally fine, just really really hard to talk about. So... why not listen to drunk me...

Episode 24: A View to a Kill (1985)

11/28/2019

Grace Jones, Christopher Walken and a near 60-year old 007—there is nothing more in life that I want. Home for Thanksgiving (who am I kidding, I live at home), I was able to persuade my wonderful and funny sister, Mollie into joining me to discuss the best film from 1985, John Glen's A View to a Kill. Was it a good idea to base my online film-writing persona around this gem? Probably not, but it certainly speaks to the state of that "career" today.

Episode 23: Aristotle's Plot (1996)

11/21/2019
More
The perfect end to another London adventure, the saddest man I know (you guessed it, it's Labeja) and I set our sights on Jean-Pierre Bekolo’s ARISTOTLE’S PLOT. One of the finest films about films, it was the number one takeaway from the year-long, and very expensive master’s degree I did in 2018. It’s just that good. And it’s available for free on Vimeo, so you should go watch it. And then listen to Labeja and I talk drunkenly about it, buy yourself some hot booze, and watch it again.

Episode 22: Army of Darkness (1992)

11/14/2019
More
Groovy.... For the finale of horror October, yes I know it's November 14th, I sit down with Alex Robertson AKA DJ Velvet Thunder to discuss the conclusion(?) of Sam Raimi's Evil Dead trilogy, Army of Darkness (1992). An immense film in terms of both scope and delicious delicious horror-comedy, this was a delightful little high note in my month long adventure. Despite being in a band called 'Boom Stick,' Alex had never seen Army of Darkness, so being his conduit to this practical effects...

Episode 21: Microwave Massacre (1983)

11/7/2019
More
Third time's a charm. After a disappointing showing on CLUE (1985), and a cathartic venture into chaos with FADE TO BLACK (1980), it was this week's film and this week's guests that proved to be my salvation. A.P. Clarke (director of APOCALYPSE OF THE BLOOD FREAK and host of The Lost Cat Podcast) and Dr. George Crosthwait (fan of the show and budding Don DeLillo impersonator) join me to discuss one of the finest bad films I've ever seen. With a perfectly deadpan Jackie Vernon and dialogue...

Episode 20: Fade to Black (1980)

10/31/2019

The blight from Episode 19.9 hanging thickly in the air, friends Labeja Kodua Okullu and Ian Mantgani join me to persevere over the cursed drink. We failed. Recording hours of painful, yet touching self-examination, there was only about 14 minutes of salvageable film talk. Deciding to reconvene, hungover and raw, we somberly recorded an addendum to our chat, tying up loose ends and correcting intoxicated errors from the previous night. What remains is a decent recap of a film that is nothing...

Episode 19.9: Clue (AKA My Own Personal Shame, 1985)

10/24/2019
More
This week's episode proved to be an embarrassing reminder of the dark side of any intoxicated adventure: sounding like a complete ass. For what was going to be episode 20, I decided on one of my all-time favorite films, Jonathan Lynn's 1985 murder mystery masterpiece, CLUE. Based on the board game of the same name (or of a different one if you live in not America), I was perhaps a little too excited for my own good. Whether due to stellar drinking rules, or the rushing back of fond memories,...

Episode 19: The Love Witch (2016)

10/17/2019
More
As the year's best month continues, I venture into territory with which I am very familiar: Anna Biller's 2016 masterpiece, The Love Witch. Combining my twin loves for spookiness and sarcastic wit, Biller's unique film appeals to the very core of my being. No, seriously, this movie fucked me up. Listen for yourself, I'm a complete, babbling mess by the end. If I average .84 coherent thoughts per episode, this 19th instalment must be down damn close to zero. Even better than listening to this...

Episode 18: Tales from the Hood 2 (2018)

10/10/2019
More
Fresh off of a makeshift honeymoon, and back into the closet of shame, I battle a cold this week to bring you the first in a month-long series of horror-based boozers. Joined by DJ Shabbee Chic, and with hot toddies in hand(s), we explore the strange moral righteousness of Rusty Cundieff and Darin Scott's social-justice-anthology-horror (that is a lot of dashes).

Episode 17: American Wedding (2003)

10/3/2019
More
Big news this week, as guest DJ Shabbee Chic and I decide to get married. By way of an impromptu hen/stag-do, my favorite sad men Labeja Kodua Okullu and Ian Mantgani planned this special episode for us to become more-accustomed to American weddings. The film is utterly fine, if not an amber-frozen artifact of the early noughties, but the company? That's something that just can't be beat, brother. Love to all those who joined us on the day, both in person and digitally, none to deserters....

Episode 16: Sometimes Art Makes Me Mad

9/26/2019
More
You know when you go into something with the best intentions? Well, this week, I think I tried that, and I know that I utterly failed. I suppose that’s the risk of drunkenly recording a podcast: you never know what you’re going to get. So this week’s episode is not really even about a film, it's about me getting angry when I think films are mean. Thankfully and as always, I can count on my man Labeja Kodua Okullu to deliver his usual brand of hopelessness in this week’s LABEJA'S SAD MAN...

Episode 15: Creep 2 (2017)

9/19/2019
More
Coming off the back of a very spooky Friday 13th/Full moon combo, I was in the mood to hit up some horror. Enter one of my favorite films from 2017, CREEP 2. Armed with only one drinking rule, I found myself delighted by this 78-minute wonder, and booze aside, could not have picked a more-perfect film for episode 15 (what does that mean? I don't know). Although I'm recording solo, back in the closet of shame, I'm actually not the saddest thing from this mid-September week, as I introduce a...

Episode 14: Late Night (2019)

9/12/2019
More
After a strange week, I needed a pick-me-up: enter Nisha Ganatra's LATE NIGHT (2019). With an overall message of positivity in a world that can really suck sometimes, Mindy Kaling's script knows exactly what it is doing, despite her character's disarming charm. Sharing a great performance with Emma Thompson, the two women have a great chemistry that seems to have begun outside of the narrative, and has merely bled in to their onscreen world—brightened glances and smiling eyes abound. Is LATE...

Episode 13: Solarbabies (1986)

9/5/2019
More
With filmmaker Ian Mantgani and poet Labeja Kodua Okullu by my side, I drink way too much mezcal and become infatuated by Alan Johnson's Solarbabies. Through the magic of hindsight, we discuss how someone as seemingly intelligent as Mel Brooks goes into debt making a film like this, why M. Bison makes for a triggering villain and how, sometimes, fake torture is worse for the stuntmen then their fantasy counterparts. Going deeper than any other trio has ever dared, we are now officially the...

Episode 12: Sextuplets (2019)

8/29/2019
More
This week I'm joined by friend, journalist and politics-man Alex Schaffer, as we both discover the profound joys of modern Wayans. Is Sextuplets 20 years too late, or is it a timely reflection of current social stratification? Given how much we drank, I'd err on the side of the former, but who's to really say. Though pleasantly surprised by the quality of this absurd film, the meat of our conversation centered around the idea of Netflix as a kind of modern boredom insurance. A bit above our...

Episode 11: Television Special (Part 1)

8/22/2019
More
Life isn't all booze and movies, it's also got alcohol and television. This week, I turn away from the big screen to focus on the little one. Are movies really dead? Is this the golden age of television? My head still hurts from drinking, so I can't tell you if I answered these or any questions, but I will assume that the episode will be all the better for it.

Episode 10: The American Side (2016)

8/15/2019
More
This week I find myself on America's northern border, battered from the journey, and much more incoherent than my intrepid part 2 co-host, Doug (Doug does not have a surname, do not ask for it). With the anonymity of Jenna Ricker's Buffalo reflected by our own Doug, the convoluted no-placeness of THE AMERICAN SIDE comes right to the front of our intoxicated conversation. As this plucky detective story vies to bewilder us with one-liners and narrative twists, we find ourselves lost in the...

Episode 9: White Chicks (2004)

8/8/2019
More
Having slunk back into the closet of shame, my mood cooled like summer into fall. Despite Keenen Ivory Wayans' uplifting and absurd film, I was unable to shake some nagging feelings, and decided to go on a rant that might eventually end identity bias in the film industry. What is identity bias? I don't know, but I can tell you that WHITE CHICKS is in contention for 'Best Film of 2004'.

Episode 8: Apocalypse of the Blood Freak (2019)

8/1/2019

This week's episode finds itself blessed by the worldwide premier of APOCALYPSE OF THE BLOOD FREAK. Part anthology, part socialist cry into the black hole of auteur theory, this film by first-time director A.P. Clarke (of The Lost Cat Podcast fame) is something all fledgling filmmakers should aspire to; proving once and for all, that a feature film is within your reach, you just have to be nice enough to grab it. Featuring the director himself, our esteemed colleague Dr. George Crosthwait...

Episode 7: Brick (2005)

Continuing my streak of special guests, I have old friend and fantastic writer, Dylan Moses Griffin with me talking about Rian Johnson’s Brick (2005). On a journey that saw perhaps one too many negronis, Dylan and I come full circle while discussing Johnson’s filmmaking, creativity and the (now dead) thing that brought us together: film criticism.
