Listener Phil Bligh tweeted us to have an episode about our favorite movies directed by women, and we did. We also talk about the movies we have seen in the past few weeks.
We finish our lists of our favorite movies with under an under 50% rating on Rotten Tomatoes.
Justin and Zach have Austin Comic Ron Lechler over to discuss our favorite movies that are rated 50% or lower on Rotten Tomatoes.
We are joined my Chicago comic Mike O'Keefe and his jovial attitude. We discuss Seven, a pitch black Noir that sprung the careers of Brad Pitt and David Fincher. Give it a listen!
Justin and Zach talk about the movies that make them sob like someone who has been punched in the dumb stomach.
Justin and Zach nail the intro and sit down with Mary Zee (Mary Zee follows the rules, Arguments and Grievances) and talk about Trading Places. The movie Michael Landis made while on trial for manslaughter. A fun and whimsical look and insider trading, income inequality, a lot of gay jokes and Dan Akroyd in black face. Enjoy!
Zach and Justin talk about the best road movies. So fire up the station wagon and jump in, we are not talking about any of the vacation movies!
Zach and Justin sit down with comic book artist and illustrator Mike Centeno to talk about the 2004 cult hit Napoleon Dynamite. Why did Mike avoid seeing it, how well does this reflect small town life? Listen and find out.
JB and ZP espouse their left leaning rhetoric on the podcast by talking about what movies portray America to them. A pretty big departure from what we usually talk about. Enjoy!
Chicago comic Sohrab Foroozesh joins to gang to talk about the last of the last of the blockbuster Norah Ephron rom-crom trilogy. No it doesn't hold up, and how much shit can we talk on it for an hour? Listen and find out!
We didn't say Star Trek.
The gang talks to Chicago comic Jason Melton about the movie, Monster. Monster is a pretty heavy and violent movie so the discussion is a bit heavier and darker then normal, and we get into some pretty serious topics. With that being said, if you are feel that topics like serial killers and murder are not for you, maybe skip this episode. We try to keep it as light hearted as possible, but when the subject matter is a person who has been abused their whole life starts killing their prostitution clients, it can be difficult.
Zach and Justin list off their favorite Apocalypse/Post-Apocalypse movies. The end is near, repent, rate, review and subscribe.
Justin and Zach sit down with Chicago comedian Reena Calm and talk turkey about some lost ass boys. Does the super-cool teen Vampire flick hold up or is it just a dated tim capsule for the 1980's MTV generation. We also talk about dogs puking.
Justin and Zach talk about their favorite remakes. The lists were harder to make than other episodes because it is pretty commonplace for remakes to suck. Are there any good remakes, is Justin's list all horror movies? Listen and find out.
We talk to Chicago-based comedian Nate Burrows about one of the all time great Heist movies, Heat. Is this the pinnacle of action moves? We never actually asked that question, but it is fun to think about.
JB and ZP talk about their favorite movie soundtracks. Please yell at our dumb musical taste in the comments.
JB and ZP are joined by the founder of The Horror Ensemble, Director, Playwright, and Immersive creator Lauren Fields. We talk about the Swayze laden, dance filled adult summer camp movie, Dirty Dancing! Give it a listen!
We continue our discussion about our favorite times we went to the movies and we are joined by Dave Ross. (Suicide Buddies, Terrified, Comedy Central)
ZP and JB discuss their most memorable times going to the movie, which ranges from the profound to the strange. This is part one of two, we complete the list in the next episode.
ZP and JB sit down with author and sports historian Jack Silverstein (@readjack) and talk about quite possibly the best action movie ever made, Predator. At first glance Predator may be nothing more then a shoot-em-up creature movie, but we dive pretty deep into it try to argue against that assumption.
In this Deleted Scenes JB and ZP talk about movies about movies and show business in general. Remember to rate and review the podcast o Itunes. Hell yeah.
Justin and Zack talk to Chicago Comedian Carly Ballerini about the Nicholas Cage blockbuster and laughable film, National Treasure. We all love relics, also Nicholas Cage is way strange, enjoy!
Justin and Zach sit down and discuss the Oscars and their favorite movies set in the midwest.
We actually spend the whole episode talking about the movie. Donnie Darko is a movie that takes a lot of explaining and some people walk away with more questions then they came in with. We try to figure it out and probably fail. Enjoy!
