Episode 179 - The Maltese Falcon

2/5/2018
More
This week, we watch the classic Noir that made Humphrey Bogart a star, as well as lay the groundwork for what Crime Drama would be for decades afterwards. Fast talking, cigarette smoking, guns, lies, cheating, murder - all for the rarest of statues. And Bogart gets punched in the neck. The Maltese Falcon (1941), directed by John Huston.

Duration:01:05:04

The Wages of Fear (1953), directed by Henri-Georges Clouzot.

Episode 182 - Network

1/14/2018
More
This week, we watch the amazingly prophetic film that, while being created over 40 years ago, depicts the current day network news situation almost exactly. This movie predicted reality television shows over a decade before they aired, and also satirized news stations selling credibility for ratings before that reality has come to pass. Network, directed by Sidney Lumet.

Episode 183 - Zootopia

1/7/2018
More
This week, we watch the animated comedy that tells the tale of a small town bunny moving to Zootopia, a city where all animals can live together without stepping on each other. Also following in Disney tradition, this film introduces a great pop song that you will grow to hate as it plays over and over again in your head. Zootopia, directed by Bryon Howard and Rich Moore.

Episode 185 - Butch Cassidy and the Sundance Kid

12/17/2017
More
This week, we watch the block-busting film that paved the way for all buddy movies that came after it. Paul Newman and Robert Redford are a perfect team, as they rob and steal their way across the mid-west. Once a super-posse is assembled to take them down, they attempt an escape to South America. Comedy ensues. Butch Cassidy and the Sundance Kid (1969), directed by George Roy Hill.
