Episode 36: Casablanca

7/21/2017
More
Casablanca is widely regarded as one of the best films of all time. One of our hosts has seen it; the other has not. So of course Andrew and Steve decided to do a before-and-after podcast, sharing pre- and post-viewing thoughts on Humphrey Bogart, Ingrid Bergman, Claude Rains, and a smorgasbord of quotable lines that make both committed fans and newcomers squeal with delight. Welcome to World War II-era Morocco.

Episode 35: Alien: Covenant

5/22/2017
More
Alien: Covenant or Prometheus 2? Ridley Scott is back with what's essentially a sequel to his polarizing 2012 Alien semi-prequel; if you think that's confusing, wait until you see the movie. Steve welcomes a special guest and Alien lover to the podcast to chat about Michael Fassbender's dual performance, Scott's uneven filmography and late-career recommitment to the Alien cinematic universe, and if anyone out there actually wants all this Xenomorph backstory.

Episode 34: Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2

5/15/2017
More
The world embraced Guardians of the Galaxy more than any other Marvel movie not named The Avengers; how does everyone feel about Vol. 2? Steve brings on famed television producer Walt Schwenk as a special guest to examine where this space adventure ranks among the Marvel Cinematic Universe pantheon, and if Chris Pratt, Dave Bautista, Zoe Saldana and company have succeeded in recapturing the magic of the original.

Episode 33: The Fate of the Furious

4/24/2017
More
The eighth entry in the Fast & Furious franchise is here, and the In Reel Deep Podcast is back to cover it in detail. To celebrate and analyze every bicep and explosion that The Fate of the Furious offers up, superfan Holc has returned to provide his expert opinion on Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson's giant muscles, Jason Statham's magnetic charm, the movie's deep stable of ass-kicking bald men, and whether Vin Diesel remains fully invested in the Furious franchise he's built. The theme music...

Episode 32: Oscar Night and the Best of 2016

3/1/2017
More
The stars were out at the 2017 Academy Awards, though it'll likely only be remembered for Warren Beatty and Faye Dunaway flubbing the Best Picture announcement live on stage. But the other eight hundred hours of Oscar featured deserving winners galore; Andrew and Steve run through all the recipients, including new foes La La Land and Moonlight, before getting to their best of 2016 recap. Did one of the beloved 2017 Oscar favorites also win In Reel Deep's Best Movie of 2016? Find out on...

And Justice for Al: Any Given Sunday

2/3/2017
More
Just in time for Super Bowl 51, the Internet's finest Al Pacino podcast revisits the football opus Any Given Sunday. Oliver Stone's frenetic ode to the pigskin features perhaps the most famous Pacino monologue of all time; it also offers a bevy of naked ladies, drug use, and a car being chopped in half via chainsaw. And tucked away, surprisingly, are progressive comments on football culture that remain relevant 18 years later. So strap on the pads, do a line in the bathroom with Lawrence...

Episode 30: La La Land

1/11/2017
More
Damien Chazelle blew audiences away with Whiplash, but can he really rejuvenate the musical? According to Andrew and Steve, the answer is a resounding yes. On this episode of the In Reel Deep Podcast, we examine the picture-perfect chemistry between Ryan Gosling and Emma Stone, along with Chazelle's terrific technical work and Justin Hurwitz's score, that brought La La Land a ton of Golden Globes and perhaps just as many Oscars to come.

And Justice for Al: Mr. Pacino Goes to Washington

12/27/2016
More
Only the finest contributors to American culture receive the Kennedy Center Honors, which is why it's no surprise that Al Pacino was (finally) honored in 2016. To celebrate this special occasion, and to pore over the accompanying Washington Post profile, Andrew and Steve convene a special episode of And Justice for Al to delve into Mr. Pacino's career on the cusp of his visit to Washington, DC.

Episode 29: Christmas with the Home Alone Franchise

12/21/2016
More
"Kevin!" "Look what ya did, ya little jerk." "I'm gonna kill that kid!" The exclamations from Home Alone and Home Alone 2: Lost in New York are quite memorable, but what exactly powered these two movies to become Christmas sensations for an entire generation? And how weird is it to see Joe Pesci in a holiday movie for kids? On a special holiday episode of the In Reel Deep Podcast, Andrew and Steve follow Kevin McCallister, Harry, Marv, Uncle Frank, and the rest of the gang on an adventure...

And Justice for Al: The Devil's Advocate

12/13/2016
More
"I'm a fan of man!" Fans of Al Pacino's more showy roles regard The Devil's Advocate as a wildly entertaining gem with several fantastic Pacino monologues. For others, it's an bombastic, overacted mess that exposes all worst elements of Al. What does the In Reel Deep team think? The latest episode of And Justice for Al dives into Taylor Hackford's 1997 drama, including skewering Keanu Reeves, comparing Craig T. Nelson to Donald Trump, and wondering how a movie like this made over $150...

Episode 28: Arrival

11/22/2016
More
Every year seems to offer its own 'smart' science-fiction movie: Gravity, Interstellar, The Martian, and now Arrival. But does Denis Villeneuve's pre-Blade Runner foray into sci-fi shine like those Oscar-nominated blockbusters? Or does a terrific Amy Adams performance and a top-notch Jóhann Jóhannsson score cover up some serious character and story flaws? You don't have to understand Heptapod to enjoy this latest episode of the In Reel Deep Podcast!

Duration: 00:35:04


Episode 27: Moonlight and the 2016 Election

11/16/2016
More
Barry Jenkins's Moonlight has been wowing critics across the country with its beautiful, poignant depiction of what it's like to grow up black, poor, and gay in Miami. And with the election of Donald Trump, it's taken on a whole new meaning for those trying to find their place in an oft-hateful world. We break down Moonlight's Oscar chances and the power of truly brilliant filmmaking in the latest episode of the In Reel Deep Podcast.

And Justice for Al: Heat

10/19/2016
More
It's finally here: Al Pacino versus Robert De Niro, squaring off in Michael Mann's renowned crime drama Heat. But is Pacino's insanely quotable performance as Lt. Vincent Hanna good, or just another example of Al's descent into bombastic screaming? And what happens when Pacino is clearly upstaged by his long-time rival De Niro? We examine every inch of Heat on the latest episode of the Internet's best (and maybe only) Al Pacino podcast!

Episode 26: Stranger Things

9/14/2016
More
It's no secret that Netflix's Stranger Things is perhaps the entertainment of the summer; from Winona Ryder's resurgence to how it borrows so genuinely from Steven Spielberg and Stephen King, it's classic storytelling done right. What it also does is blur the line between cinema and television; in five years, will it matter what's streaming and what's in theaters? That's the question we attempt to answer on this episode of the In Reel Deep Podcast, as we examine what the Duffer Brothers...

Episode 25: Suicide Squad

8/8/2016
More
It's finally here; after months of hype, Suicide Squad has hit theaters. And, unfortunately, it's a bit of a trainwreck. What's wrong with the DC Extended Universe? How can a villain team-up starring Will Smith and Margot Robbie be such a letdown? Is Jared Leto's Joker really that bad? And how does this impact the upcoming Wonder Woman and Justice League? Steve sits down with a DC movie mega fan (yes, one actually exists) to examine every inch of what went sour with David Ayer's supposed...

Bonus! And Justice for Al: Gigli

7/28/2016
More
Some call Gigli the worst movie ever, and they may be right. Ben Affleck and Jennifer Lopez as mobster maybe-lovers, The Hangover's Justin Bartha as a mentally challenged hip-hop fan...yeesh. But you know who nearly saves it? The one and only Al Pacino. On this special b-b-b-bonus (and Andrew-less) episode of And Justice for Al, Steve and his baby brother Chris (Pacino lovers, both of them) suffer through Martin Brest's final movie and rave about Alfredo Pacino's 15-minute tour de force...

And Justice for Al: Donnie Brasco

7/13/2016
More
It's hard to imagine now, but once upon a time Johnny Depp played characters other than weirdos in makeup. And Al Pacino's acting was more than vigorous yells. We're taking you back to the magical days of 1997, before The Sopranos changed how mob stories were told. The movie is Donnie Brasco, the podcast is And Justice for Al, and it's time to learn the true meaning of "fuhgettaboutit."

And Justice for Al: Danny Collins

6/22/2016
More
Al Pacino sings. And dances. And does too much cocaine, and hunts for his long-lost son, and attempts to charm Annette Bening via piano tunes. What more could we ask for? On the latest episode of And Justice for Al, the only Pacino-centric podcast on the internet, the In Reel Deep team examines the Golden Globe-nominated Danny Collins and wonders whose bright idea it was to cast the aging Scarface star as a musician.

Episode 24: Captain America: Civil War

5/16/2016
More
Marvel's latest adventure has hit screens everywhere, and it's a big one. Captain America versus Iron Man, Spider-Man versus Falcon, Ant-Man versus Vision: all your favorites are facing off in Captain America: Civil War. To break it all down, Steve brought a special guest to the In Reel Deep Podcast; they analyze the Marvel Studios plan going forward and compare Civil War to the oft-maligned Batman v Superman.

And Justice for Al: Scarface

4/18/2016
More
Even if you haven't seen Scarface, you know Tony Montana. Al Pacino's iconic Cuban gangster has been quoted in hip-hop lyrics and plastered on dorm walls for the last two decades. But is Brian De Palma's movie any good? And what makes Al's performance so divisive? Those sorts of questions can only be answered on And Justice for Al, the best Pacino podcast on the World Wide Web.
