SHYAMALAN-TOBER: The Village (2004)

10/14/2019
More
Find us at: iTunes Spotify Patreon CONTENT WARNING: Discussions of mental illness, violence, cults and harmful communal living, disabilities and neurological issues, bad depictions of mental illness, performers Joaquin Phoenix and Adrien Brody. This week in our M. Night Shyamalan series, we’re examining a film that many consider his masterpiece, but in reality is both messy and problematic. There’s obvious missteps with a specific character that needed far more nuance than this movie...

SHYAMALAN-TOBER: Unbreakable (2000)

10/7/2019
More
Find us at: iTunes Spotify Patreon CONTENT WARNING: Discussions of disabilities and disabled people, male privilege, patriarchal attitudes. This year we’re celebrating the Halloween season with a review of the films of the polarizing master (?) of suspense, M. Night Shyamalan. Shyamalan’s always been a bit of a disputed figure in movies, and his track record has been mixed, but is that just critical opinion or is it reality? We’re starting things with a superhero movie that revels more in...

FEMALE DIRECTORS: Clueless (1995)

9/30/2019
More
Find us at: iTunes Spotify Patreon CONTENT WARNING: Discussions of sexual harassment, a story choice involving step-siblings being romantically involved. We’re wrapping up our female directors series with the ur-teen comedy that helped kick off movies that defined a generation of high school teens - except maybe David, who hasn’t seen any of them. We’ve tackled some big movies on that list, but possibly none more formative and important than this 1995 film from Amy Heckerling, the director...

FEMALE DIRECTORS: I Shot Andy Warhol (1996) + New Movies!

9/23/2019
More
Find us at: iTunes Spotify Patreon CONTENT WARNING: Discussions of transphobia and trans-exclusionary ideology, sexual and physical abuse, drugs, sex work, mental illness, attempted murder, shooting. This week’s film might just be the least well-known on the list, though it packs a decent amount of creative firepower. Mary Harron helms this biopic/docudrama/ideological exploration of Valerie Solanas, creator of the S.C.U.M. (Society for Cutting Up Men) Manifesto and shooter of Andy Warhol....

FEMALE DIRECTORS: The Kids Are All Right (2010)

9/16/2019
More
Find us at: iTunes Spotify Patreon CW: Discussions of sperm donation, family strife, marriage, affairs, marital strife. If you remember the 2010 Oscars, you remember the giant buzz this little-indie-that-could generated. It had a powerhouse cast, relatable family struggles and dynamics, an LGBTQ+ couple presented with no real complications, and a healthy dose of humor. After all the buzz for this movie, we had high expectations…and then we actually watched it. Turns out this is a true indie...

Monster (2003)

9/9/2019
More
Find us at: iTunes Spotify Patreon STRONG CW: Discussions of rape, child abuse, sexual abuse, violence against women, murder, mental illness, serial killers. This week, we take a hard turn into true crime with a then-rising-star Charlize Theron and true blue movie star Christina Ricci. Theron donned prosthetic makeup and a dark persona to portray Aileen Wournos, a sex worker-turned-murderer whose story is complicated, tragic, and unique in true crime. Director Patty Jenkins, who went on to...

Orlando (1992) / New Movies!!

9/2/2019
More
Find us at: iTunes Spotify Patreon CONTENT WARNING: Discussions of misogyny, gender roles, gender switching. We’re starting a new series of watching films made by female directors discussing Sally Potter’s 1992 art-house hit, Orlando. Tilda Swinton gives a tour-de-force performance as the Count Orlando, living eternally through hundreds of years of English history, first as a man, and then as a woman. Swinton is masterful in the movie, at once reserved yet also coy and sly in the camera. The...

SUMMER OF SWAYZE: Road House (1989)

8/26/2019
More
Find us at: iTunes Spotify Patreon CONTENT WARNING: Discussions of violence, violent masculinity, sex scenes, mention of a homophobic line used in the film. We're closing out our Summer of Swayze with quite possibly the single greatest bad movie ever made. Nine total bar fights, two smoking hot male leads, a monster truck crashing through a building, introspective male bonding and speeches…this movie really does have it all. There's a reason this is now a cult classic - because despite its...

SUMMER OF SWAYZE: Dirty Dancing (1987)

8/21/2019
More
Find us at: iTunes Spotify Patreon CONTENT WARNING: Discussion of abortion, class issues, misogyny. This episode is a huge, epic celebration with guests Jen and Micah from I Never Saw That because a) it's David's 32nd birthday, b) it's our movie's 32nd birthday, and c) this is Jen and Micah's Patreon pick for us to watch. Oh, and this film is possibly still the best dance movie ever made. Some of it's Kenny Ortega's choreography, dripping with sex and sweat but never overt enough to raise...

SUMMER OF SWAYZE: Red Dawn Double Feature

8/14/2019
More
Find us at: iTunes Spotify Patreon MAJOR CONTENT WARNING: This episode was recorded prior to the recent wave of shootings in Gilroy, El Paso, and Dayton, and the ensuing wave of white nationalist violence. Our discussion touches on issues of white nationalism and armed insurgency, which may be harmful to some listeners. Please stay safe and avoid this episode if you need to. This week's movie is…complicated. First of all, it's a double feature that literally no one asked for, except maybe...

Patreon Unlocked: Apocalypse Now (1979)

8/6/2019
More
Find us at: iTunes Spotify Patreon CW: Discussion of war, violence, intense stress and mental breakdown, racism. As a tie-in to our review of the documentary Hearts of Darkness, Macintosh makes Maud watch 1979's war epic/living nightmare, Apocalypse Now. We gush over Martin Sheen and Robert Duvall, agree that Marlon Brando is an overrated asshole, get a crash course on the history of the Vietnam War, and have a heated discussion of whether past episode topic Kramer v. Kramer deserved to win...

SUMMER OF SWAYZE: The Outsiders (1983)

8/5/2019
More
Find us at: iTunes Spotify Patreon CW: Murder, child abuse, severe burning, children in distress, bullying. We’re kicking off a huge series, the Summer of Swayze, with Patrick’s first big role alongside the first breakout performances for some of the biggest names in acting from the 80’s and 90’s: Rob Lowe, Tom Cruise, Diane Lane, Emilio Estevez, Matt Dillon, C. Thomas Howell, and Ralph Macchio. Francis Ford Coppola himself took on this project and wound up launching some of the biggest...

A View to a Kill (1985)

6/24/2019
More
Find us at: iTunes Spotify Patreon CW: Violence including violence against women, casual sexism, sexual harassment. This week we say farewell to, officially, the horniest James Bond, Sir Roger Moore. And what an incredibly bland sendoff it is. Roger Moore was 57 years old when this movie was made, and despite his ever-present charm and wit, Moore's missing the spark and energy that was desperately needed. We do get two of our biggest-name villains, with Christopher Walken and Grace Jones,...

Octopussy (1983)

6/17/2019
More
Find us at: iTunes Spotify Patreon CW: Violence including violence against women, casual sexism, sexual harassment This one was a little weird. Roger Moore’s definitely too old for this role, but he’s also in good shape and has some good twinkle in his eyes. We get to spend a lengthy chunk of time in India, but also in East Berlin, and then also we’re kind of in both? In a movie where James Freaking Bond gets put in a clown suit while trying to defuse a NUCLEAR BOMB, the jokes are super...

For Your Eyes Only (1981)

6/3/2019
More
Find us at: iTunes Spotify Patreon CW: Violence including violence against women, casual sexism, sexual harassment, murder, public outing of transgender people Full disclosure - this movie was so boring at spots that at least one of us was falling asleep in the climactic scene. I mean, there’s good action and a darker, tougher James Bond, but there’s something so inescapably mediocre about this very boilerplate 80’s action film. Maybe it’s the fact that there’s so many similar plot points to...

Moonraker (1979)

5/27/2019
More
Find us at: iTunes Spotify Patreon CW: Violence including violence against women, casual sexism, and sexual harassment, murder, mild mention of genocide. This used to be one of David’s favorite Bond movies. We emphasize the used to, because after the real promise of The Spy Who Loved Me, this movie…is a total dud. It’s almost a remake of its much better predecessor, and after watching about half the film you start to realize you’ve already seen this before. No one in the movie is giving a...

The Spy Who Loved Me (1977)

5/20/2019
More
Find us at: iTunes Spotify Patreon CW: Violence including violence against women, casual sexism, and sexual harassment. Roger Moore…in a good Bond film? Who knew? Well, most Bond experts, but also Macintosh & Maud Haven’t Seen What?!, now that we’ve seen this arguably classic spy film. There’s giant boats and nuclear submarines, a car that goes underwater, a gorgeous KGB agent and THE HORNIEST JAMES BOND OF ALL TIME. Not creepy horny, just HORNY HORNY. It’s adorable, and we love it. So join...

The Man With the Golden Gun (1974)

5/13/2019
More
harassment. This week, Macintosh & Maud Haven’t Seen What?! returns to the relatively safe harbor of mediocre Bond films. ‘Cause let’s be honest, anything would have been an upgrade from the garbage pile we witnessed last week. Roger Moore is really making his own space as Bond, and Christopher Lee really sells Scaramanga as a classic villain of the franchise, third nipple and all. On the other hand, both our Bond ladies are thoroughly one-dimensional, either the butt of jokes or the subject...

Live and Let Die (1973)

5/6/2019
More
Find us at: iTunes Spotify Patreon CW: Racism and frank discussions of race. Like A LOT. Plus violence, some discussion of diseases, casual sexism, and sexual harassment. It's time to get back to Bond, and that's great, right? Like, it's James Bond, he's always fun and we get a new Bond to talk about. Oh, except that whole issue of "we the super white producers of this British spy thought it'd be cool to make a blaxploitation film and have all the villains be black." This movie's just...

Say Anything... (1989) / High Fidelity (2000) / Avengers: Endgame

4/29/2019
More
Find us at: iTunes Spotify Patreon CW: Gaslighting, rape, casual misogyny, brief mention of incels, emotional abuse. We’re in between series right now, and as we reached for our grab bag, our listener Bill reached out and suggested this fairly fantastic John Cusack double feature! We’re here to swoon over the awkward, scruffy stray puppy charm of Lloyd Dobler and rip his evil, misogynist twin Rob Gordon to shreds. It’s fascinating watching these two movies back to back; while Cameron Crowe...
