BONUS: Scream Redux

10/16/2018
More
Almost a year ago, David a/k/a Macintosh committed the cardinal sin of our podcast - he checked out of a movie. That movie just so happened to be 1996’s Scream. Now, as we continue with horror movies, it’s time for him to re-assess Scream and what the hell happened that fateful day. Enjoy this bonus mini-sode and get ready for our review of Scream 2 next Monday! Macintosh & Maud have started a Patreon! Any little bit you can contribute helps, and we have special contributor-only content if...

A Nightmare on Elm Street (1984)

10/15/2018
More
Fred Krueger is an icon of horror. Armed with his homemade glove of knives, the undead killer now haunts the dreams of local teens with no chance of escape. It’s an amazing premise, and it’s almost criminal that Wes Craven totally screws it up with his cheesy writing, atrocious ending and poor, poor casting. The effects are undeniably great and insane, and deserve their place in the pantheon of slasher legends. But this movie can’t get out of its own way half the time. You might say it’s...

Halloween (1978)

10/8/2018
More
This isn’t a perfect movie. In fact it’s sometimes pretty hokey. Most of the cast is fairly unremarkable and unbelievable as teens and the premise is basic at best. Yet Carpenter’s deliberate visual style, ratcheting of tension and unstoppably evil horror villian elevate this movie from B-movie dreck to instant horror classic. And it also helps that Jamie Lee Curtis is nearly perfect in her first movie role, and Donald Pleasance is unique among expository heroes. Enjoy our review of the 1978...

Saw (2004)

10/1/2018
More
It’s October, and in an utter travesty of movie-watching, Macintosh hasn’t seen NEARLY enough horror movies for this, the spoopiest time of year. To fix that, we’re starting off with 2004’s Saw, a movie that was a BIG FREAKING DEAL when it came out, but that Macintosh & Maud have never seen. We discuss the film-school level “justice” of the movie’s ending, the indescribably bad acting of one Cary Elwes, and why writing is crucial to low-budget filmmaking. Macintosh & Maud have started a...

BONUS: New Movies for August/September

9/29/2018
More
In recent weeks, we haven’t reviewed new movies as part of our weekly episodes, and you might think, “maybe Macintosh & Maud decided to stop watching movies.” You’d be wrong. We can’t not go see new movies, and so each month we’re bringing you some quick reviews of brand new movies from two obsessed moviegoers! This month, we discuss: BlacKkKansman (Spike Lee at his absolute best) Crazy Rich Asians (One of the most fun and thoughtful romantic comedies in a long time) A Simple Favor (Really...

Bull Durham (w/ David from Unfollow the Revolution!)

9/24/2018
More
This week we wrap up our sports movies series with David Gossett of Unfollow the Revolution, and discuss the most baseball of all baseball movies, 1988’s Bull Durham. We talk about the very hit-or-miss writing in this movie, play several epic games of “Who Could’ve Been Better?” and drop quotes for one of the most quotable movies of all time. Not to mention hear about how Kevin Costner made a batboy cry… Macintosh & Maud have started a Patreon! Any little bit you can contribute helps, and we...

Bloodsport

9/17/2018
More
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

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 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...

The Imposter / Ant-Man and the Wasp

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 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

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.
