Slap Shot / Big Fan

8/13/2018
More
We won't mince words: Slap Shot is a criminally awful movie. Ostensibly, this film is a classic about one of our favorite sports - hockey. But the aggressively violent sexism and homophobia just cannot be reconciled even for the standards of 1977, let alone our current time. It's sad, because Paul Newman and Michael Ontkean are really acting their asses off, and the Hanson Brothers are legendary characters. Still, a grossly offensive script and meandering, aimless direction made this the...

Icarus / The Spy Who Dumped Me

8/6/2018
More
Let's get ready to ARGUUUUUUUUE!!! We've had some contentious episodes on this show, but the debate around the Academy-Award winning documentary Icarus takes up almost the entire episode. Macintosh has some very strong opinions about how sports doping, Russia and the high-and-mighty tone of this film. Maud tries to retain the purity of the Olympic spirit while recognizing how long the movie gets. And then we both take a deep dive into VERY recent history into a scandal that is still going...

Hearts of Darkness / Eighth Grade

7/30/2018
More
Macintosh & Maud debrief after going down the river and watch Francis Ford Coppola lose his damn mind. This week Macintosh & Maud watch Francis Ford Coppola almost lose everything, including his mind, in the making-of documentary Hearts of Darkness. Coppola created a masterpiece with Apocalypse Now, but the process was a nightmare in and of itself. We talk about the famous director's Jekyll-and-Hyde personality, the sheer insanity of attempting to film the movie in the Philippines, the...

Tickled / Sorry to Bother You

7/23/2018
More
Competitive. Endurance. Tickling. Folks, we broke format this week and recorded VERY late at night. Why? Because David Farrier’s 2016 documentary Tickled is so weird, so amazing, we just couldn’t wait to talk about it. And yes, this is a movie about tickling. Tickling, and so, so much more... Then after the break, we talk about a breakout film from Boots Riley, Sorry to Bother You. It's weird, and funny, and then deadly serious, and then kind of a mess. It's got great performances and a...

The September Issue / Three Identical Strangers

7/16/2018
More
Sometimes the best stories come up in the middle of a documentary. This movie managed to find that story - and then completely ignore it. Our documentary this week is supposedly about Anna Wintour's day-to-day life as editor-in-chief of Vogue magazine. Instead, it's a basic-cable reality episode whose most important and compelling character isn't Wintour at all. Which begs the question: why was this documentary even made? Macintosh and Maud try to answer that question and so many more in...

The Imposter / Ant-Man and the Wasp

7/9/2018
More
In which we review the documentary with the most unreliable narrators of all time. We're jumping into our second documentary of our series, 2012's The Imposter. This twist-filled, complicated story of a French con man pulling the ultimate game, and the family that bizarrely embraces him, is one heck of a ride. We're not sure who to believe in this story, and neither will you once we're done. Then, we review the newest entry into the Marvel Cinematic Universe, Ant-Man and The Wasp. It's...

The Thin Blue Line / New Movies

7/2/2018
More
We embark on our series reviewing documentaries with the grandfather of the modern true crime epic. We're back with a brand new series on documentaries, starting with a review of Errol Morris' 1988 masterpiece The Thin Blue Line. We enjoy some sights of the rougher parts of Dallas County and explore the dark, twisted web of arrogance and ignorance that can lead an innocent man to death row. Not to mention an amazing score by Philip Glass and some dull yet equally fascinating re-enactments...

Diamonds are Forever / Ocean's 8

6/11/2018
More
Sometimes all it takes is a terrible producer and a stupid dream to ruin a franchise. Hello, again, and welcome to Macintosh & Maud Haven't Seen What?! This week, we're wrapping up our journey through Connery-era Bond with a true abomination of a film. About the only good thing we can say about it is that at least Sean Connery tries in his performance of Bond. We only wish the rest of the people who made this movie could say the same. Enjoy our review of 1971's Diamonds are...

This week, Macintosh and Maud confront the biggest anomaly in the Bond universe, and need some Bond therapy to determine their feelings. Is this a good movie? Is George Lazenby a good James Bond? Are we overthinking our impressions of this movie? Find out during our review of 1969's On Her Majesty's Secret Service! Then, after the break, we have reviews...

Thunderball / You Only Live Twice

The good news: it's a double feature! The bad news: we're dealing with the most boring and the most racist Bond movies ever made. CONTENT WARNING: Discussions of rape; racism and racial insensitivity; misogyny. You may want to skip this episode if any of the above is a problem. Hello, again, and welcome to Macintosh & Maud Haven't Seen What?! This week, we were excited about this Bond series and decided to give you two movies for the price of one!

From Russia With Love

Bond is back and soooooo much better. Like at least 79 million dollars better. [CONTENT WARNING: SUICIDE 17:30-18:30] Hello and welcome again to Macintosh & Maud Haven't Seen What?! This week, we're much more excited for Bond as he travels through Turkey and the heart of the Soviet empire. He's more confident, smoother with the ladies, and has that fantastic Scottish brogue. Throw in some tough villains and an actual gadget and we're all in! Enjoy our review of Bond's 1963 adventure, From...

Dr. No / A Quiet Place

Name's Maud. Macintosh & Maud. And we're here to talk about the 1962 film debut of one James Bond. Hello again, and welcome to an exciting new series from Macintosh & Maud Haven't Seen What?! This week: The Walther PPK. Bond Girls. A vodka martini, shaken, not stirred. Macintosh & Maud are jumping straight in to James Bond's first screen appearance and let's just say it was a bit underwhelming. Still, Sean Connery is perfectly dreamy and a little devilish to boot - we just hope the rest...

You voted for it. So now you get to hear us complain about it. We think it's only fair. Hello and welcome again to Macintosh and Maud Haven’t Seen What?! This week, we try to decide what’s worse - how bad this movie is, or how bad Audrey Hepburn sings in it. Fred Astaire does his best to entertain, but nothing in the known universe can save a musical from a bad script, bad songs and bad awkward acting. You voted for it, and now you get to hear us complain about it. Enjoy our review of...

In another universe, these two movies would've been much better. But alas, we are not in that universe. Hello, and welcome to another episode of Macintosh & Maud Haven't Seen What?! This week, Macintosh and Maud are wearing their flannel and combat boots as they dive in to the early-90's grunge scene! If only the plot and characters and overall vibe of the movie had worked just a little bit better. Enjoy our review of Cameron Crowe's 1992 love letter to the Emerald City, Singles! After...

Hello, Dolly! / Annihilation

Sometimes a musical just needs to stay a musical, especially if you’re not going to film it well. Welcome again to Macintosh & Maud Haven't Seen What?! This week, we set our sights on 1890's New York and discuss the wiles of Ms. Dolly Levi and her schemes to find love. At least, that's what we would've done had Walter Matthau not been such a jerk. Enjoy our review of Hello, Dolly! After the break, we get into a debate about whether Alex Garland’s Annihilation was an interesting and...

Rain Man (1988)

Rain Man isn't so much a Best Picture as the best of a series of movies you might catch on basic cable on a Sunday afternoon... SPOILER ALERT: We reviewed the costume design in-depth for Phantom Thread. If you don't want to hear spoilers, it's tagged to the end of the episode, so you can simply stop after the final music. This week we watched 1988's Best Picture, Rain Man. The script has the same sensitivity and thoughtful understanding of autism as a brick fused with a giant boulder,...
