Labyrinth (1986)

What comes to mind when you think of the movie “Labyrinth”? If you were a young girl coming of age in the mid 80s, you probably remember the raw emo sexuality of David Bowie awakening something within you or the hero’s journey told from the female perspective. If you’re Jim you remember a ton of early internet memes centered on David Bowie’s bulge that eventually lead you to watching this bizarrely creative Jim Henson masterpiece. Either way, there’s something for everyone to love in this movie, and hopefully in the podcast we produced for Kevin and Courtney’s commission.

LWJ&A – Episode 272 – Trash Talk

This week we talk trash about the Jones household potentially getting a cat as well as literal trash and recycling. We also tell the tale of our friend named “Burns” getting blown up and round everything out with an impromptu Bald Move podcast bracket to determine which is our all-time best show.

Casino (1995)

This might be the last time they let street guys like us handle any podcasts this valuable. We’ve had a good run of Scorsese films this year (Goodfellas, The Irishman, The Wolf of Wall Street) but there’s only so much gas is in the Scorsese tank. We canceled our Raging Bull 40th anniversary podcast because we just couldn’t fit it in. Jim’s pumping the breaks on reviewing any more gangster films in the near future. Are we running out of steam? Getting sloppy? I sure hope not because that’s when you make mistakes. That’s when you get whacked.

Join us for a little over an hour of discussion of Scorsese’s 1995 classic Las Vegas gangster film, Casino.

Fargo - 408 – The Nadir

There’s an ironic quality to the name of this episode, The Nadir, given that the previous two episodes were our least favorite of the season. This episode is a return to form with some excellent Raylan Gi– er, Marshal Deafy scenes, a lot more action in the gang war, and trouble all around for nurse Mayflower. Join us for the podcast to get our full take.

The Mandalorian - S02E02 – Chapter 10: The Passenger

The Mandalorian takes us on a side-quest escort mission away from our story question of learning more about Baby Yoda. Then it derails that side-quest to pay homage to Aliens and the original Star Wars concept art with an icy subterranean adventure. Honestly, I loved every second of it. Join us for the podcast to hear our detailed thoughts on season 2, episode 2 title “Chapter 10: The Passenger”.
