In this episode we review Fifty Shades of Grey and try to deconstruct why it’s a worldwide phenomenon. This inspires us to sing a song about being open minded with your lover and we also share our list of the “actual” 50 shades of grey.
In this episode we review Clint Eastwood’s American Sniper starring Bradley Cooper as U.S. Navy SEAL Chris Kyle, the most lethal sniper in U.S. history. Do you feel better or worse after a good cry? What is truth?
In this episode we review Paul Thomas Anderson’s Inherent Vice. Alan declares his love for California noir and I declare my love for Paul Thomas Anderson before we start debating how to pronounce Thomas Pynchon’s name. For some reason we end up talking about Pulp Fiction and Star Trek: The Next Generation. We also get in to some controversial listener email.
In this episode we review Ridley Scott’s Exodus: Gods and Kings starring Christian Bale as Moses. Alan whips out his undergraduate degree in religious studies and we remind ourselves that this is Films of the Future not Pissed at the Past.
In this episode we review Wild starring Reese Witherspoon as Cheryl Strayed, a woman in crisis who decides to solo hike the 1,100 mile Pacific Crest Trail. Also, we find out what animal Alan thinks that Kendall looks like.
Just in time for Halloween, in this episode we review Horns (not to be confused with Kevin Smith’s Tusk) directed by Alexandre Aja and starring Daniel Radcliffe. Can Radcliffe escape the shadow of Harry Potter? Does he need to? Also, Alan reveals the funniest thing he’s ever seen.
For our premiere episode, we review Birdman or (The Unexpected Virtue of Ignorance) starring Michael Keaton as the titular character—a washed up movie star who’s trying to make a comeback on Broadway while haunted by the iconic character he’s known for.
We dive in to Michael Keaton’s filmography (but somehow forget to mention Beetlejuice) and Alan accidentally makes the first incorrect statement of the show.
