Episode 310: The Last Temptation of Christ (August 1988)

8/9/2018
More
Amity and Lemuel watched Martin Scorsese’s 1988 film The Last Temptation of Christ – yes, all 2 hours and 43 minutes of it – and they have feelings, bad bad feelings. So we talk about who Jesus was, what makes a good movie, how Harry Potter can help with modern understanding, and then there’s 20 minutes of good Stephen King discussion to cleanse the palate. Nothing like three good things to help deal with one bad thing. Email us at latecomers@gmail.com Twitter: @latecomerspod Find Amity @...

Episode 309: The Eyes of Laura Mars (August 1978)

8/2/2018
More
Once Amity got past her disdain for the theme song, this watch was smooth sailing. Listen through the violent murder, a treatise on what is art even, a discussion of can we divide the art from the artist – and should we – and a quaint 70’s notion that photography isn’t even art to begin with. We get a very young Tommy Lee Jones, a fluffy haired Rene Auberjonois, a surprisingly sexy Brad Dourif, and an astoundingly unsexy Raul Julia, and we see it all through Faye Dunnaway’s enormous and...

Episode 308: Mamma Mia! (July 2008)

7/26/2018
More
Amity and Lemuel watched Mamma Mia! this week – the original came out 10 years ago. Amity is in full pearl clutching mode at the sexual mores on display – she never knew she was a prude until this pop opera came into her life. Lemuel goes on the attack when Pierce Brosnan has the gall to use his own voice. It’s a week, come along and listen!

Episode 307: Saving Private Ryan (July 1998)

7/19/2018
More
Amity and Lemuel delve into the three hour war epic from 1998, Saving Private Ryan. This is a real love-fest for Tom Hanks. And a real dislike-fest for Steven Spielberg. Who dies first? Who makes it out? How much vicera was there? Listen to find out.

Episode 306: A Fish Called Wanda (July 1988)

7/12/2018
More
Amity and Lemuel have reached 1988 and this week we watched A Fish Called Wanda. Amity had literally no idea what this movie was and feels a bit robbed by that lack of knowledge. Lemuel had a better idea and is coming around to the sexiness of Russian. Kevin Kline steals every scene and eats every last bit of scenery – including the living stuff.

Episode 305: Animal House (July 1978)

7/5/2018
More
Lemuel and Amity finally watched Animal House. Amity thinks all these white dudes look/act/are the same. Lemuel struggles with age and mortality. Amity bets on boobs and loses. We reminisce over SNL Jeopardy and there is a crackle on Amity’s mic that she is very sorry about… she did her best to edit as much of it out as possible.

6/28/2018

June of 2008 brings us the only theatrically released American Girls Dolls movie – Kit Kitteridge – a story of precociousness and hobos populated by big name stars telling a story that is better than it has any right to be.

Episode 303: Mulan (June 1998)

6/22/2018
More
Amity and Lemuel watched Mulan, and both ended up liking it more than they thought they would. We get into the truthiness of M Butterfly, the enjoyment of cross dressing, the utter violence in this children’s film and come out in favor of animation.

Episode 302: Coming to America (June 1988)

6/14/2018
More
Description: Eddie Murphy and Arsenio Hall play three too many characters each in this comedic hit from the 80s. Patrice gets the short end of the stick and why is Eric LaSalle like racist oatmeal? It was an eye opening experience – come along and listen, won’t you? Check out a recent episode of The Nod (May 14, 2018 called “From Zamunda to Wakanda,”) where the hosts determine if Coming to America is “good for the blacks” – it’s a great podcast, check it out.

Episode 301: Heaven Can Wait (June 1978)

6/7/2018
More
Amity and Lemuel strapped in for a screwball comedy from the seventies, remade from a 1941 film and remade again in 2006, so we are reminded Hollywood plagiarism isn’t new. Lemuel learns us on Buck Henry and Amity wonders how Charles Grodin kept his job. Join us for our season three premiere!

Episode 300: Black Panther (99.9% Spoiler Free)

5/31/2018
More
Amity and Lemuel are gearing up for season three so they are taking a detour to discuss current cultural phenomenon, Black Panther. Appropriation, representation, and how Amity wanted the white guys' lines to remain countable on both hands. This movie is great and we have a lot to say even without spoiling it.

Lemuel and Amity watched 2001: A Space Odyssey this week. Is this the best movie ever made? Should you be high when you watch it? What was Bob Ross’s pet squirrel’s name? (Peapod) Where are all the super comfortable future chairs? Why don’t we drink all of our meals? These questions and more answered this week.

Episode 209: Deliverance

5/17/2018
More
We watched the hill people classic Deliverance - it's a rough go and it was everything Amity expected. We talk about the treatment of sexual assault, the inanity of no insurance and no stunt people, and Amity pushes hard to get you to watch a different movie entirely. Listen along?

Episode 208: Slumdog Millionaire

5/10/2018
More
Amity thought this was a happy movie. She confused it for a movie with a happy ending. Rough as it is, it does end well and both confirm that Dev Patel is an international treasure. How did this boy from nowhere know all the answers – the solution is in the questions themselves. Also maybe magic.

4/26/2018

Lemuel is pleasantly surprised and Amity is miffed by the lack of faith. Clueless is up and Amity’s podcast dream comes true – well the first one anyway. Is this the best intro to teen film? Yup, because it is the one we chose. Bright colors, flirting with yourself, and the difference between Mexico and El Salvador, we tackle it all. Come along!

Episode 205: Taxi Driver

4/19/2018

Amity and Lemuel find out the difference between porn films and date movies. We also swear a whole bunch. Amity is torn by the movie and feels badly about womanhood. We also get schooled on the clap back by Mr. Bernard Herrmann. Listen along!

Episode 204 All the President's Men

4/12/2018

Amity and Lemuel get a touch political in this week’s episode. We also swear a whole bunch. We mourn the state of journalism, marvel at the parallels in the news (as well as Robert Redford’s beautiful hair) and pitch Serial season 3. Listen along!

Episode 203: The Godfather Part 2

3/30/2018

This one was surprising in its ability to not make us feel we were watching a 202 minute movie. And that wasn't even it's best quality. We look at baby Pacino and baby DeNiro and we keep our friends close and our enemies closer.
