My Left Foot (#53)

1/14/2019
More
This week, the guys take to the poverty-stricken Irish slums to talk about the 1989 Oscar-winning tearjerker - My Left Foot. They talk all about Daniel Day-Lewis' insane commitment to the performance, the liberties that the screenplay takes with some of the real events, some of the odd music choices and much more. Plus: Jason pisses off Irish people. Plus: Brendan and Jason roll the dice to find out what movie they'll be covering next week. What did you think of My Left Foot? Does it tug...

The Full Monty (#25)

1/7/2019
More
This week, Brendan and Jason encounter a much-needed change of pace from the first three intense dramatic films with The Full Monty! Is the film merely a "fun comedy" or is there much more beneath the surface that people (including the hosts) didn't pick up on the first time around? They also discuss the film's surprisingly progressive attitude towards sexuality, the use of the award-winning musical score, the way in which some very depressing themes sneak their way into the film under the...

No movie this week but Santa Claus wanted to make sure he got to spread some Christmas cheer to all of the lovely listeners! On January 7th, the guys return with The Full Monty (#25) but never fear - there will still be content on next week's show (New Year's Eve) as well!

The English Patient (#55)

12/17/2018
More
This week, Brendan and Jason crash their biplane into 1996's The English Patient (#55 on the BFI Top 100) - a movie where pretty things happen and pretty people act their hearts out while looking pretty. This movie won a buttload of Academy Awards so it's got that going for it. Moreover, at three hours long one can argue that you get a per-minute value on that rental fee. Plus: Brendan and Jason roll the dice to find out what movie they'll be covering when they return from a brief holiday...

Zulu (#31)

12/10/2018
More
In this week's episode, Brendan and Jason explore the heroics of British colonialism in the 1964 epic Zulu starring Stanley Baker and a very young Michael Caine. The guys debate if the film is racist or surprisingly progressive (considering the historical scenario), they are blown away by the amazing cinematography and sound design, Jason wonders how necessary Jack Hawkins' preacher character is to the whole story and much more. Plus: Brendan and Jason roll the dice to find out what movie...

More
It's the debut of "For Screen and Country" - the podcast that delves into the British Film Institute's list of the Top 100 British Films of All-Time. In the very first episode, Brendan and Jason tackle the British film about the Russian Revolution - David Lean's epic romance Doctor Zhivago. They discuss how Lean was hated by basically everyone, they debate about the romance overshadowing the historical importance of the time period, discuss Pasha's (Tom Courtenay) complete character...
