147 - Life As A House

6/17/2018
More
The Dudes analyze cinematic tofu with 2001's "Life As A House", directed by Irwin Winkler, starring Kevin Kline, Kristin Scott Thomas and Hayden Christensen. When a person knows their death is imminent, they tend to develop immunity to life's inconsequential nonsense, which ordinarily would be relatable. But when every imaginable storytelling cliche' is employed, it becomes harder and harder to truly sympathize with what should be universally appreciated. Join us for this R-rated Hallmark...

146 - Quills

6/10/2018
More
The Dudes tackle censorship and religious hypocrisy with 2000's "Quills", directed by Philip Kaufman, starring Geoffrey Rush and Kate Winslet. Though the developed world seemingly enjoys freedom of expression today, if we look closer we realize that the careful management of art and information is about as bad today as it was in the time of the Marquis de Sade. Its not an easy subject, buts its an important one that affects us all. Other Movies Discussed: The Lost City of Z (2017) –...

More
The Dudes machete their way through Spanish moss with 1997's "Eve's Bayou", directed by Kasi Lemmons, starring Lynn Whitfield and Samuel L. Jackson. When we reflect on any experience, did it always happen exactly as our memory says it did? Can our own minds be characterized as unreliable on something we're damned sure about? The Dudes don't fully know either, but join us anyway for a hidden gem from the great decade that was the 1990s! Other Movies Discussed: Good Time (2017) – Directed by...

5/28/2018
More
The Dudes come hard after some very famous people with 1992's "Bram Stoker's Dracula", directed by Francis Ford Coppola, starring Gary Oldman and Winona Ryder. Is introducing suburban children to the magic of goth culture enough to save this sumptuous, practical effects-driven re-telling of Stoker's legend? Join the Dudes as they come to a pitiless verdict! (At least Scott.) Other Movies Discussed: The Lost Boys (1987) – Directed by Joel Schumacher The Wizard of Oz (1939) – Directed by...

143 - The Sweet Hereafter

5/20/2018
More
Coming to terms with grief and loss dominates 1997's "The Sweet Hereafter", directed by Atom Egoyan, starring Ian Holm and Sarah Polley. This story about the aftermath of a school bus crash in a small town features excellent performances and a particularly outstanding use of a non-linear timeline. Its not fun, but its still great.

The Dudes would never ask "Is this seat taken?" with 1986's "The Karate Kid Part II", directed by John G. Avildsen, starring Ralph Macchio and Pat Morita.

The Dudes sit by a police scanner and remember the habits of highly successful people with 2014's "Nightcrawler", directed by Dan Gilroy, starring Jake Gyllenhaal and Rene Russo.

The Dudes put on a new face and discuss 1992's "Deep Cover", directed by Bill Duke, starring Laurence Fishburne and Jeff Goldblum.

Nobody believes The Dudes as they discuss 1993's "Fire In The Sky", directed by Robert Lieberman, starring Robert Patrick and D.B. Sweeney.

The Dudes discuss 2004's "The Machinist", directed by Brad Anderson, starring Christian Bale. With a movie very of its time, featuring a complicated if familiar plot, and an actor showing unhealthy commitment to a role, the Dudes are unsure how to tread.
