Episode 85 - Blue Jasmine

6/19/2018
More
According to The New Yorker, the acclaimed director and all-around stand-up guy Woody Allen's 2013 film "Blue Jasmine" is yet another masterpiece in a long line of them. According to us, it is boring masturbatory fantasy from an out of touch ghoul who, in an ideal world, would have been locked up in prison for the past several decades rather than pumping out an endless stream of bombastic nonsense. Cate Blanchett won Best Actress for playing Jasmine Francis, a mentally damaged widow who we...

Episode 84 - Bram Stoker's Dracula

6/12/2018
More
Francis Ford Coppola's 1992 softcore porn adaptation of Bram Stoker's "Dracula" seems like a bunch of 14-year-old boys got their hands on a camera for the first time, googled how to do cheap practical special effects, and then forced their friends to act in it doing laughable foreign accents. It’s weird that one of those immature boys made "The Godfather" and the other was Hannibal Lecter. But, it's true. And it's weird that this movie won three Oscars. It's not weird, however, that...

In Theaters: Tully

In this installment of our periodical "In Theaters" segment, we give you our immediate reaction to seeing a new movie on the big screen. This time, we tackled the newest Jason Reitman-Diablo Cody collaboration, "Tully." **NOTE: THIS EPISODE CONTAINS SPOILERS** Quick Facts Release date: May 4, 2018 Runtime: 1 hour, 35 minutes Starring: Charlize Theron, Mackenzie Davis, Ron Livingston, Mark Duplass, Gameela Wright, Elaine Tan, Asher Miles Fallica, Lia Frankland Directed by: Jason...

Episode 83 - Chitty Chitty Bang Bang

5/29/2018
More
The 1968 musical based on an Ian Fleming novel, "Chitty Chitty Bang Bang," tells the story of a criminally negligent single dad who falsely impersonates a carnival worker in order to scam money to buy a jalopy old race car, and then tells a story about how the car is supernaturally alive in some way that presumably is related to the previous owners of the car dying horribly in a fiery crash whilst driving it. The story also weaves in a weird subplot about a pirate who turns out to be a...

Episode 82 - Ted

5/22/2018
More
Seth MacFarlane's feature-length directorial debut "Ted" is just one long fart: funny in theory and for a second, but when the butt-trombone just continues for two hours, it stops being humorous and you realize you're just sitting in a room where everything smells. Because most people in the world are stupid, this messy flatulence of flat racist and homophobic jokes and '80s references made $549.4 million at the box office, spawned a successful sequel, and was even nominated for an...

Episode 81 - Big

5/14/2018
More
When you were 12, did you ever wish you were bigger? And did you also ever wish to make your mom think you got kidnapped and that a 30-something brash woman with smoker's breath would have sex with you while also pretending to be your new mommy? If so, then the 1988 Penny Marshall movie "Big" starring Tom Hanks is right up your alley. Sure, the sickly sweet score, oversized piano dancing, cushy job at a toy company, and silly-string fights make this film feel like a light-hearted age-swap...

Episode 80 - Frozen

5/8/2018
More
Disney's Oscar-winning 2013 cultural sensation "Frozen," that created ear-worm songs for annoyed parents everywhere, is already considered a classic piece of Disney animation, rivaling the likes of "Beauty and the Beast" and "The Lion King," and has critics and moviegoers spewing nonsense about how its message is progressive and fresh when it's actually regressive and spoiled. The flimsy, sloppy, incoherent plot is as follow: When their kingdom becomes trapped in perpetual winter,...

Episode 79 - Private Benjamin

5/1/2018
More
"Private Benjamin" pretends the make and model of this 1980 Goldie Hawn vehicle will bring you the new-car smell of female empowerment by having a put-upon housewife change gears via enlisting in the Army, but when you pop open the hood and look at the engine, you'll find the same old misogynist faux-feminist lemon Nancy Meyers always smarmily tries to get you to drive off the lot. This is the first film Nancy Meyers was ever involved with, and it gained her her only Oscar nomination (she...

Mailbag: May I have your sperm?

4/24/2018

In our first of many Mailbag episodes, we talk about James Cameron's comments about Marvel movies, Molly Ringwald's article about John Hughes' creepy writing, tell a story about how we met each other, and answer some emails and social media questions like: which movies we think are underrated and whether or not we’d be willing to donate our sperm to a listener. Links we mentioned during the show: Our "Best Of" list James Cameron's comments about Marvel movies Molly Ringwald's piece in...

Episode 78 - Argo

4/17/2018
More
Argo [BLEEP] this movie! The only thing funny about Ben Affleck's muddled film "Argo" about the Iran hostage crisis is that it's obviously a thinly disguised C.I.A. propaganda piece. Perhaps the Academy chose it as the 2012 Best Picture winner in the interests of national security. The story focuses on Tony Mendez, a C.I.A. "exfiltration expert," who's tasked with secretly and safely extracting six Americans who evaded capture during the seizure of the U.S. embassy in Tehran. In what is...

In this installment of our bonus segment "In Theaters," we give you our immediate reaction to seeing a new movie on the big screen. This time, we tackled the newest Stephen Spielberg film, "Ready Player One." We discuss what we thought of all of the constant '80s references, the incessant '80s references, and the grating '80s references. **NOTE: THIS EPISODE CONTAINS SPOILERS** Quick Facts Release date: Mar. 29, 2018 Runtime: 2 hours 19 minutes Starring: Tye Sheridan, Olivia Cooke,...

Episode 77 - Reality Bites

4/3/2018
More
Ben Stiller's 1994 directorial debut, "Reality Bites," focuses on the lives of four repugnant Gen Xers in their early 20s who are trying desperately to figure out who they are while also trying to find love. It's kinda like one long episode of "Friends," but it takes itself way too seriously, and nobody sticks their head inside a turkey. Winona Ryder plays Lelaina Pierce, an aspiring documentary filmmaker who thinks that her friend group's day-to-day activities make for the most...

Episode 76 - Dirty Dancing

3/27/2018
More
In this episode, we have the time of our lives as we discuss the 1987 smash hit "Dirty Dancing." It's a fun flick about a 17-year-old girl who raises money for a botched abortion, learns to dance and loses her virginity to a small-time male prostitute, but the gigolo has awesome hair and a six-pack, so it all works out well in the end. Jennifer Grey plays Frances "Baby" Houseman, a wannabe do-gooder whose main method of enacting change in the world appears to be begging her daddy for help...

Episode 75 - The Shape of Water

3/20/2018
More
The 2018 Best Picture winner, "The Shape of Water" was labeled "a fairy tale for troubled times" by its director, Guillermo del Toro. Coincidentally, the unanimous acclaim that the movie received despite its total lack of substance is reminiscent of another fairy tale, "The Emperor's New Clothes." Del Toro is a poor man's Tim Burton who repeatedly employs the same trick of blending together macabre yet magical scenarios that take place in the past, wide-eyed ingénues and heavy-handed...

Episode 74 - Dead Poets Society

3/13/2018
More
Carpe diem! It's time to sneak out of the dormitory at your elite all-boys prep school and go to the old Indian cave to read poetry into the wee hours of the morning. The 1989 film "Dead Poets Society" won the Oscar for Best Original Screenplay for showing its audience that life isn't worth living unless you are fiercely pursuing the things you are passionate about regardless of the consequences. Robin Williams plays John Keating (no relation to one of this show's hosts), an irreverent...

Episode 73 - Baby Driver

2/27/2018
More
The 2017 film "Baby Driver" takes place in a world of vivid colors and nonstop music, but all of the feebly-depicted characters are black and white and the chords the film attempts to hit end up sounding dissonant. Its director, Edgar Wright, seems to have lost his knack for comedy and instead resorts to a bunch of stale criminal lingo that sounds like he learned it by watching old episodes of "Starsky & Hutch." Ansel Elgort plays Baby, a car thief with superhuman tinnitus powers who, as...

Episode 72 - Rocky

2/20/2018
More
In 1976, a former porn star made a low-budget movie called "Rocky" about an underdog boxer who randomly gets a shot at the heavyweight championship. The film went on to become the highest-grossing movie of the year, win three Oscars (including Best Picture) and, at last count, has spawned seven sequels. Sylvester Stallone plays Rocky Balboa, a punch-drunk 30-year-old who considers himself as a pro boxer because he takes the occasional fight at a local church athletic club. We're supposed...

Dead kid (dead kid, dead kid) Talkin' 'bout dead kid (dead kid)♪ This nostalgic coming-of-age story would appropriately be titled "American Horror Story" with its ghoulish setting and the fact that it repeatedly bashes the audience over the head with disturbing events until they are left huddling in the corner,...

Episode 70 - Sneakers

2/6/2018
More
In 1992, the director of "Field of Dreams," Phil Alden Robinson, made a film called "Sneakers" with a far-fetched plot about an unconstitutional secret NSA domestic surveillance system designed solely for the purpose of spying on unsuspecting American citizens. It’s a relief that nothing like that could ever happen in real life. Robert Redford plays a wisecracking cool guy with a secret past who leads a ragtag bunch of misfits who specialize in breaking into seemingly impenetrable...
