After recording I realized that I … Continue reading Kiss Kiss Bang Bang

Let’s get going on this classic film noire starring Faye Dunaway and Jack Nicholson. What a good movie. Wow. Seriously. Pardon the lack of verbosity here–it’s been a difficult week.

Hey Mark finally gets to watch 300!!!! But he has a bit of a warm take. This take was kept in the microwave for a while and then nuked for 15 seconds. Again, age and perspective maybe change how a movie is received. Not all the way–but definitely some. This is just an intraseason short … Continue reading 300 or The Hot Takes of Thermopylae

St. Elmo’s Fire

1/30/2019
More
B-B-B-BONUS! It’s actually a bonus because it’s a bad episode. I recorded this after being way tired, under the weather, and ostensibly intoxicated. It didn’t sound great, either. It’s actually a long episode so re-recording it wasn’t really on the table. Critical response was quite poor but let’s go through this age-appropriate Joel Schumacher version … Continue reading St. Elmo’s Fire

Check your assets and make sure your station chief has the latest status reports because this is the Tony Scott-directed spy thriller aptly titled Spy Game.
