Requiem for a Dream is one of those movies that leaves marks and thanks to Nicholas’s commission, our wounds have been freshly reopened. Join us for our coverage of the movie that left us with a “not even once” attitude toward heroin.
Not many people know this, but in 1944 Tom Cruise attempted to assassinate Hitler and bring World War II to an end. He came really, really close. So close that they made this documentary about the attempt in 2008. Join us for the podcast to hear our thoughts on Valkyrie.
Don’t blame us, we had never seen The Long Kiss Goodnight! We put this movie up on Patreon as an option for our weekly Executive Producer poll to determine what movie we would cover and they picked it over Mr. Holland’s Opus and The Ghost and the Darkness. This probably doesn’t belong in the Prestige category but we hope you’ll be willing to have a little fun with us in this Geena Davis and Sam Jackson amnesiatic-assassin movie.
Nosferatu celebrates its 100th birthday this week so we decided to celebrate too by covering the oldest vampire still existing in its entirety. Find out what we thought about this true horror classic as we speculate wildly about early 20th century audiences and film production.
If all you know of Rocky is Mr. T and Ivan Drago, you might be shocked to find out this won an Oscar for Best Picture and Best Director and earned Sly Stallone a writing Nomination. That’s right kids, once upon a time, Rocky was actually good!
Minari is a highly-acclaimed movie about an immigrant Korean family moving from California to Arkansas to find a new life and their piece of the world. We really enjoyed this slice-of-life tale. Check out the podcast to find out why.
Get Out is Jordan Peele’s big-screen writing and directorial debut and it works remarkably well. His comedic chops transfer seamlessly to the socially-conscious horror genre. So well in fact, that he actually won an academy award for the screenplay. Join us for the podcast to hear our thoughts on Get Out.
Deep Water is a British documentary about a boat race in the late 1960s so maybe you can understand why I thought this pick from commissioner Aaron might be a little dry. I expected a lot of coxswain this, and bosun that. Thankfully, it turned out to be nothing like I expected. Check out the documentary, then join us for a podcast about isolation and the delicate mechanism of the mind.
Check out our Wall Street podcast! If you enjoy watching rich and powerful people con the less fortunate out of their cash and initiate young, hungry, impressionable kids into their cult-like business culture, you’ll love this week’s prestige podcast. We probably talk more about the state of the world than the actual movie but it just felt necessary.
What do you say about a movie that’s better the first time around but is a little confusing even on subsequent watches, requires multiple trigger warnings, and seems to want to end about 45 minutes before the runtime expires? Join us for our The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo podcast to find out.
