Falling in line with the Zucker Brothers’ history of slapstick comedy, “Top Secret!” is no exception to the rule. It’s a movie that eluded Chad for the duration of its existence… Yet, somehow, it’s one of Mark’s treasured favorites (he gives it a 9 out of 10 star rating). The boys sit back, relax and […]Read more "Ep. 44 – “Top Secret!” (1984)"
The guys deep dive back into the world of European art-house cinema, again looking back to the works of director Krzysztof Kieslowski (we first tackled his “The Double Life of Veronique” in the 4th episode of our podcast (found here)). “Three Colors: Red” falls within Chad’s top-10 favorite films OF ALL TIME, for reasons mostly unknown […]Read more "Ep. 43 – “Three Colors: Red” (1994)"
This is as good a week as any to talk about 2004’s rendition of “The Punisher”, considering Netflix just released their own version of “The Punisher” TV series last week. This week, Mark presents the movie to Chad, whom has never seen ANY of the Punisher installments over the years. The two of them dive […]Read more "Ep. 42 – “The Punisher” (2004)"

How we stumbled across it, only Chad knows (he totally judged the blu-ray by its awesome […]Read more "Ep. 40 – “One Dark Night” (1982)"

This time we’re trying something a little new (for us) – we’re doing a podcast for a movie that’s still in theaters! Yes, we (mostly) […]Read more "Ep. 39 – “Blade Runner 2049” (2017)"

Mark brings us to a film that recently caught his attention: “The Trust” – made in 2016, starring Elijah Wood and Nicolas Cage (with a hint of Jerry Lewis in a thankless role). “The Trust” (2016) http://www.imdb.com/title/tt3733774/combined Performers of note: Nicolas Cage, Elijah […]Read more "Ep. 38 – “The Trust” (2016)"
