Episode 230: The Lovebirds

This week’s early episode drop features discussion on the newest comedy from “The Big Sick” director Michael Showalter and star Kumail Nanjiani, a film in which the latter is half of a couple on the outs who stumble into a crime caper and hilariously try and salvage their relationship over the course of one crazy night. We chat about what makes a movie funny, the importance of cast chemistry, and whether or not trauma is actually good for mending relationship troubles in our conversation.

Episode 229: The Amazing Spider-Man 2

In this week’s episode, we finish up discussing Andrew Garfield’s turn wearing the Spider-Man mask. Our feelings on this sequel are a little more contentious, but there is no doubt plenty to talk about between its two empathetic villains, beautiful romance, and ultimately one of the most iconic and tragic comic deaths of all-time.

Episode 228: The Amazing Spider-Man

In this week’s episode, we gush about our love for the first film of Andrew Garfield’s turn wearing the Spider-Man mask. With minimal comparing to other iterations (though some is necessary), we lay out the many reasons (i.e. practically everything) that make this our favorite live-action version of the character.

Episode 227: Bad Education

This week we cover the newly released HBO film that tells the story of the largest embezzlement scheme ever to target an American school district. Do we have empathy for the devil? How can the pressure to be the best affect our decision making? We discuss these questions and more.

Episode 226: Minority Report

For the month of April, our Patrons chose Steven Spielberg’s adaptation of a Philip K. Dick short story for us to discuss and this philosophically-focused conversation is the result. Fatalism vs. free will, privacy rights, and super cool not-so-far-fetched technology are among our topics.

Episode 225: Whiplash

We do our best not to rush or drag through this episode on Damien Chazelle’s incredible, intense musical drama. With conflicted feelings, we try to stay on tempo and dig into a gem of a simple story about the prices paid to achieve greatness, and discuss whether or not there is a line that should not be crossed.

Episode 224: The Rhythm Section

This week we catch-up with an earlier 2020 release, the Blake Lively realistic assassin thriller with a musical name that has very little to do with anything that happens in the film. But like it or not, we find themes to discuss, and this story gives us an opportunity to chat about topics such as how we can show empathy for those experiencing tragedy and why our culture is fascinated with revenge.

Episode 223: Rounders

This week we are excited to talk about the Matt Damon-led gambling crime drama featuring a sleazy Edward Norton character and a whole lot of skillfully narrated poker lessons. We get to discuss whether chasing your destiny is always the honorable choice, how long to hang onto a toxic friendship, tell some of our own poker stories, and much more.

Episode 222: The Adventures of Tintin

This week’s episode takes us trotting around the globe, from the stormy seas to the sky to the desert, with a young journalist and his dog. It’s an animated treasure hunting adventure for the whole family and we discuss whether a teenage protagonist makes for as compelling of a story as an adult explorer, why characters chasing their legacies is so interesting, and more.

Episode 221: A League of Their Own

We return from a brief break before the end of the month to deliver the Patron-chosen March Donor Pick episode. Timing couldn’t be better because while we’re crying over the loss of what would have been baseball’s opening weekend, we can instead discuss a movie that celebrates the sport and the women who once upon a time played it professionally. Penny Marshall’s comedy is a fan-favorite and we have a great time chatting about what makes it special.
