There’s no good explanation why Macintosh hasn’t seen Jean-Claude Van Damme’s action-star debut. He’s seen his fair share of martial-arts epics, fighting movies and dumb action roles. But other than Street Fighter, there’s a major lack of JCVD in his repertoire. Meanwhile, Maud has watched this at least a dozen times, and now it’s time for her to share this terribly-acted but nevertheless immensely watchable fighting movie. With no budget, 1988 looks and a super-unreliable narrator in the...

The Cutting Edge (w/ Erin from Unabashedly Obsessed, Kids on Bikes!)

9/10/2018
More
Maud has been counting the days to this moment - the moment when Macintosh finally watched the 1992 ice-rom-com The Cutting Edge. But we couldn't just keep the fun to ourselves, so we invited Erin from Unabashedly Obsessed and Kids on Bikes to join in! We talk about our first times watching figure skating, D.B. Sweeney's eerie foreshadowing of Paul Rudd and, of course, the Pamchenko (*flourish with hands*). It's a super fun episode, and stay tuned after the credits as Macintosh gets a little...

The Natural

9/3/2018
More
The Natural is definitely a tropey, hacky movie that leans in to every single sports cliche it can. But an all-star cast anchored by the 47-year-old Adonis Robert Redford, the gorgeous cinematography from Caleb Deschanel, and a score that holds a very special place in Macintosh's sports heart make this movie a definite sports classic. We didn't want to like this movie as much as we do. But this movie charms you with its characters and makes baseball into a beautiful sport. Just don't tell...

The Damned United (w/ Kyle from The M Word!)

8/27/2018
More
There's a minor mic problem this week that makes Macintosh sound like a magical wizard, but that won't stop the good vibes as we discuss The Damned United with special guest Kyle Turner from The M Word! Kyle is our guide to all things English football as we watch a so-so film of the amazing story of Brian Clough, the greatest manager England never had. More importantly, though, we cast an all-star project with Michael Sheen, Kenneth Branagh and Paul Rudd; Kyle awards some Oscars through...

Raging Bull

8/20/2018
More
1980's Raging Bull is a bona fide classic of cinema and a true artistic work. That is, according to Macintosh. Maud, on the other hand, doesn't think this story holds up and thinks the Academy-Award winning editing is actually trash. This might be the biggest gap we've ever had on this show. Get your boxing gloves on and get ready to throw down for our new episode of Macintosh & Maud Haven't Seen What?! Macintosh & Maud have started a Patreon (www.patreon.com/macintoshandmaud)! Any little...

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 on,...

Hearts of Darkness / Eighth Grade

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

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 wild...

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 a...

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 not...

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...

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.

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 1957’s...
