Chad and Byron Smith tackle Chad’s favorite movie from 2014, the wonderful (but oddly divisive) “It Follows”. This movie loves suspense, adores suspense and craves suspense – teasing the audience from start to finish.

The era of “films for adults” is dead. Ain’t it? We live in an age where films similar to “Sex, Lies and Videotape” seem to be hitting Netflix on a daily basis. Why not? Small casts, sexy, low budget, “smart” conversations on film between some intellectuals (or nonsensicals) and you’ve got yourself a film […]Read more "Ep. 28 – “Sex, Lies and Videotape” (1989)"

All this aside, co-host Mark brings us two things this week: “Back To School”, the 1986 Rodney Dangerfield classic; and a […]Read more "Ep. 25 – “Back To School” (1986)"
Hey everybody, Chad’s back! Chad’s back! *Crickets* …and so is Steve Phelan, returning for his third consecutive podcast with the fellas. Today they attempt to tackle one of Chad’s suggested films – the Justin Lin helmed “Better Luck Tomorrow”, from 2002. This film reeks of late-90’s style, and is FULL of nostalgia because of it. Not […]Read more "Ep. 24 – “Better Luck Tomorrow” (2002)"
With Chad absent AGAIN, last week’s guest – Steve Phelan – makes a fill-in look natural. This time Steve picks the movie: the original “The In-Laws” from 1979, starring the great Peter Falk and Alan Arkin in a film directed by Arthur Hiller. Mark’s never seen the movie (neither has Chad, for that matter, […]Read more "Ep. 23 – “The In-Laws” (1979)"
