Episode 184: Varsity Blues

This week we enlist the help of listener J.B. Huffman to celebrate the start of football season by discussing one of our favorite movies featuring the sport, and our first of two episodes on films that adapted Buzz Bissinger’s best-selling book “Friday Night Lights.” There’s a lot more than just teenage antics going on in this film, and much of what it calls out about Texas HS football culture was ahead of its time.

Episode 105: Warrior

We square off in the octagon (aka Google Hangout) this week to talk Gavin O’Connor’s incredibly powerful fight film, Warrior. Its story of brothers chasing the same goal for very different reasons is told with an emotional depth that makes it stand out among similar films and evokes a powerful response from us both.
