Shine (1996)

1996 was a crowded year in movies. The English Patient swept up tons of awards, Jerry Maguire somehow commanded critical and box office attention, and Fargo cemented the Coen brothers’ status as true master craftsmen. So it says something that a tiny little movie from Australia garnered a ton of Oscar nominations and a Best Actor Oscar for a man that only Aussie theatergoers knew about. Shine isn’t just any typical movie though - it’s packed with stellar performances from young and older...


Million Dollar Baby (2004)

It’s Oscar season once again, and this year we’re focusing on past movies with Oscar-winning performances. First up is a 2004 surprise box office bonanza that not only earned Hilary Swank and Morgan Freeman Oscars but also won Best Picture. Not that 2004 was a particularly great year for movies, but many people were shocked by this movie winning, even Macintosh who didn’t see it until months later. For anyone who hadn’t seen the movie, it was tough to understand how a low-budget, depressing...


SPECIAL: 2018 In Review

It’s the end of our second year of talking about movies on microphones, and we’re here to take a quick look back at everything we saw this year. We watched a total of 94 MOVIES, and probably would’ve watched more if it weren’t for our meddling kids. 2018 was actually a great year for movies in theaters - we each had no trouble sharing our bottom 3 movies, but a lot of trouble narrowing down our top 5 movies of the year. We take a quick look at our ratings over the past season as we generally...

BONUS: New Movies in December

It’s the end of the year, and so it’s time to wrap up all of the movies we’ve seen in December! We packed a few in right after Christmas, so enjoy some quick reviews for SEVEN movies: The Favourite Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse Creed II Aquaman Mary Poppins Returns Mary, Queen of Scots Vice Macintosh & Maud have started a Patreon!

National Lampoon's Christmas Vacation

There’s one thing that’s undeniable about the Vacation film series - Chevy Chase is a genius. I mean, he’s a horrible human being, but dammit he’s funny. He makes the absolute dumbest jokes somehow make perfect sense and makes every scene he’s in better. Which is what makes Christmas Vacation somewhat disappointing - John Hughes is back with his twisted vision of It’s a Wonderful Life, and the Griswold extended family is packed with great actors, young and old. But the final product is just...


You don’t expect Christmas movies to become cult classics. They’re usually aimed at everyone, which means they’re either really funny or painfully mediocre. Then there’s the sarcastic, more grown-up movies that ruminate on dysfunctional families or consumerism. Way under all of that, though, is Christmas horror, and it’s here that two genres can really pack a punch. Krampus probably has no right being as solid a movie as it is, and yet it features a top notch, powerhouse cast that all bring...



It’s become fashionable in the past few years to debate the worthiness of certain Christmas movies in the canon, mainly Die Hard. That discussion, however, often overlooks a Christmas classic that somehow blends It’s a Wonderful Life with monster flicks. There’s a lot wrong with Gremlins - the clunky script, the lost context in editing, and the lackluster acting. But all you need is a cute fuzzy sidekick and some awesome demon puppets, and you’ve got yourself a decent Christmas movie. A...


BONUS: New Movies in November!

November is over, and we’ve got our reviews of new movies we’ve seen in the past month. It was light, but solid, and we’ve got some reviews of: • Bohemian Rhapsody • Fantastic Beasts: The Crimes of Grindelwald • Ralph Breaks the Internet Look forward to WAY more in December….

It’s the perfect elevator pitch - take the classic Dickens Christmas Carol , inject it with a ton of wicked, dark humor, and cast the master of sarcasm as a new-school Ebenezer. So of course the person you pick to direct this is...the guy who made Superman and Lethal Weapon? This is a textbook example of what can go wrong when a studio forces the wrong group of people to try and make a movie. Donner’s style is sloppy and Murray is fighting back in the only way he knows how - the ad-lib....


MIracle on 34th Street (1947)

Macintosh is the resident Grinch in the Macintosh & Maud extended family. Christmas trees and presents have always brought a little bit of bah humbug out from him. But this Grinch’s heart seems to have grown three sizes this year and watching this Christmas classic just confirms that transformation. 1947’s Miracle on 34th Street is a remarkably natural, relaxed take on the meaning of the holidays and has timeless themes and performances from the majority of its lead characters. There’s no...

Rocky IV

Sylvester Stallone never imagined making a fourth Rocky film. In fact, it’s entirely possible, based on the lawsuit Anderson v. Stallone, that he may have barely written this one. Just like in that court’s decision though, the core of Rocky still exists in this movie, even though some questionable choices are made (talking robot wife for Paulie, 5-minute Stallone Lambo montage, the synth-iest score that ever synthed, etc.). This is the only movie one of us had actually seen, and Macintosh...


Rocky III

OK, we admit it. We thought this was going to be the beginning of the end for this franchise. I mean, how good can a movie be when it features a Hulk Hogan cameo and a supporting role from Mr. T? Turns out IT CAN BE AMAZING. Rocky III is so much better than it has any right to be, and Stallone’s script and directing are a huge part of it. Not to mention our returning actors and the incredible debut performance of Mr. T. We talk about this and play a super-fun round of “Who Could’ve Been...


Rocky II

Stallone took over directing duties for this sequel and despite a few failed projects and wound up making a worthy successor to the original. It’s not Oscar-worthy, but Stallone tightens up the story and fleshes out some of the things we loved from the original, like Adrian and Rocky’s relationship or Apollo’s character and motivation. Mickey’s a cartoon character in this movie but it doesn’t take away from the goofy charm of Rocky as Stallone settles into the character that would make him a...



Rocky is such a cultural phenomenon that it’s easy to forget it’s really a low-budget, independent slice-of-life drama made on the promise of one compelling actor and screenwriter who had an idea for a story he needed to tell. A $900,000 film wound up grossing over $250 million dollars worldwide and won a Best Picture Oscar against some of the greatest films in American cinema. We can’t say we were blown away by this movie, because it’s not perfect. But damned if it doesn’t charm you into...


BONUS: New Movies for October!

It’s the end of the month, so time for some quick new movie reviews! Find us at: iTunes Google Play Spotify Patreon We’ve hit All Hallow’s Eve, which means it’s time to talk about new movies we’ve seen in October, including: - A Star Is Born (2018) - A remarkable, timeless film destined for Oscar glory - The Old Man and the Gun - A great indie bank heist movie with a stellar cast and perfect Robert Redford swan song - Halloween (2018) - The perfect follow-up to John Carpenter’s original...



Find us at: iTunes Google Play Spotify Patreon Misery is an odd entry in the horror franchise. It’s written like a prestige drama, directed by a comedy and coming-of-age director and features performances by two leads not known for their horror prowess. Yet with all these disparate elements, and despite some odd directing choices, this film holds up remarkably well. It’s no coincidence Silence of the Lambs swept the Oscars the year after this - it’s the first Hollywood prestige horror film,...


Scream 2 (w/ Kalena & Sean!)

Kalena and Sean from TV Dinner join us to talk about the infinitely more meta and still damn fun sequel, Scream 2 ! We get into the sequel’s transformation to a gory whodunit, Kalena’s dad freaking her out with the Ghostface costume and Sean’s epic rating after having NEVER seen the original. Plus, the single most epic list of RPONs (Random Persons of Note) we’ve ever done. Double-check Randy’s rules and make sure the killer’s actually dead - it’s time for Scream 2. Macintosh & Maud have...


BONUS: Scream Redux

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!

A Nightmare on Elm Street (1984)

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...
