Two decades later, Ocean’s Eleven is cemented in as a genre defining film. The star studded cast has everyone’s non-problematic fav, George Clooney. To A.Ron, it’s a near perfect film. To Jim, it’s a great movie, but Julia Roberts is there. If you like memorable one-liners, snappy editing, and wildly entertaining characters, you’ll love this movie and the podcast episode about it.
This week we’ve got a special treat thanks to our commissioner, Dena. It’s one of the handful of movies that Quentin Tarantino wrote, but didn’t direct. What do Tarantino’s unique sensibilities look like when filtered through another director? Find out with us on the True Romance podcast. You can get your very own custom commissioned…
Moneyball is our Prestige movie this week thanks to it being the 10th anniversary of its release as well as a pretty solid movie about a subject that most movies wouldn’t dare approach. Join us for a discussion about Jonah Hill, Brad Pitt, and the statistical analysis that changed baseball.
Jim’s filling in the gaps in his Cohen brothers catalog viewing and A.Ron is giving Burn After Reading one last chance after not being impressed with it years ago. Join us for the podcast to find out what we thought of this star-studded farce.
We went and saw “Once Upon a Time in Hollywood”, the latest movie written and directed by Quentin Tarantino, starring Brad Pitt, Leonardo DiCaprio, and Margot Robbie. It’s not his best film, it’s certainly not his “worst”, but for us it’s extremely watchable throughout it’s nearly three hour run-time and when it finally goes off the rails in the last reel, hoo-boy. Brad and Leo are having a lot of fun, the film is as gorgeous as you’d expect, and Hollywood looks as magical as it ever has on screen. We’ll be back next week to check out Hobbes and Shaw, see you then!
Special thanks to our community commissioners Fernando Rodriguez, Flash Gordon, Jefferson B, Katie Gutierrez, cocoa2mc, pooljedi, Martin K, shockg11, Keith Alejandro, Ryan L, and jmyjnstn67 for coming together and making this podcast on the 1995 David Fincher helmed “Seven” possible. Neither Jim nor I had seen this movie in it’s entirety, though some of us were more spoiled than others. We were surprised at how well the movie held up and managed to entertain despite the various exposure to spoilers. We discuss the film, it’s message, our own bleak/positive worldviews, and much more.
Merry Christmas to Daniel L. from Alyssa, David, and Ryan, who joined forced to commission this podcast on 1999’s “Fight Club”, directed by David Fincher and starring Brad Pitt, Edward Norton, and Helena Bonham Carter. Fight Club is a dark and yet at times humorous look at the savage heart of mankind, and the guys have a lot of thoughts on it’s ideas and philosophy, despite the constraints of talking about Fight Club while working within the film’s first and second rule.
