We’ll Review it, Our Shelves

We review the movies… On our shelves.

Ep 20 Mimic

In 1997 somebody thought it would be a good idea to make a movie about twelve foot long bugs. What a great idea. In 2017 the magic random movie button decided we should talk about it.  So, we did.  

Dan likes horror movies and this certainly qualifies, but will it escape General Population? You'll have to tune in, or download and listen, to find out.

We make poop jokes. (Not the first time, probably won't be the last) If you're wondering the tone is 440 Hz and 18 dB. S-brrrrrrr-t, so no explicit tag, but whew it was close.

Our sincerest apologies on the tardiness of this episode. 

Brian does most of the heavy editing on the weekend prior to release and this weekend was Christmas. So instead of editing, family time took precedence. We hope you understand.

There were also some minor technical issues with the sound on Dan's end and our audio guy (Brian) wasn't able to fix it. Dan is slightly choppy in this episode, but we hope it doesn't affect your enjoyment too much.  

In this, our first foreign language film, we chat about a 2012 Korean film called A Company Man. 

Subtitles and the international language of assassination are the rule of the day, and it's a movie that Dan might put <SPOILERS!!! THIS SECTION DELETED BY AUTO-SCRIPT!!!> 

We had a lot of fun chatting about this movie

First things first. in the intro Brian inadvertanly refers to this as Episode 19. Because of the Bonus Episode this is technically the 19th episode, but since we didn't number the Bonus Episode, this is really episode 18. We'll figure all that out :) .
In this episode we discuss the heavy use of the N-word in this movie, however, we do not use the word. We discussed it beforehand and decided we couldn't justify the use in a family style podcast. We discuss some of our past actions and take a deep dive into racism and the satirical approach to confronting it. During the editing process we left a few things on the proverbial cutting room floor, just to try and keep the length manageble. 

Don't worry, we keep it pretty light (we hope). 

Join us for a quirky look at a quirky satirical movie.

We interrupt your regularly scheduled podcast to provide you with this special Christmas episode. A break from our previous conversations, Brian presents you with the traditional event in his house; the annual viewing of National Lampoon's Christmas Vacation.

It's a watch-along, so you will recieve cues to start the movie. Also, be warned, there is an intermission at 42:12.

Oh, and some swearing. There's some of that too.

Ep 17 Robots

Ewan Macgregor leads a rag-tag band of outmodes against the corporate greed of a once proud and inspiring company, Mel Brooks' Big Weld. A kindly Walt Disney-esque robot that encourages his fellow robots to "See a need, fill a need!" 
Robin Williams discovers his feminine side and a robot with "trunk space" carries her frineds in her butt.  HMMM
Did we like it?  Will it be relegated to General Population?  Give it a listen and find out.

Once again, specific articles of speech are the order of the day. "The" is an important word and it is in the title of this movie twice, so it must mean something. 
When should you read the book that a movie is made from, before or after? Or should you wait 600 days after reading the book before you see the movie.

We discuss all of this, and more, in our latest episode.

Episode 15, we learn what specific articles of speech are. "The" Heat does not star Robert DeNiro and Al Pacino, it does star Sandra Bullock and Melissa McCarthy.  Is this "just" a movie, or does it explore deep seated social issues?
Do Dan and Brian feel "The Heat" of this movie, or will it be relegated to General Population?
We'll talk about all that and more.

In this episode we proceed in a gradual, subtle way, but with harmful effects. as we discuss "Insidious". It's a scary movie, not like Scooby-Doo scary, but we'll tackle it anyway, going Further than we ever have before. (Ok, we make some bad jokes about the movie, but you should listen anyway!!)

We have guests!!! Brian watched the movie with teen-aged girls, because that's what scary movies are for.

Ep 13 Genres

We take a slight turn from our randomness and have a conversation about genres that we enjoy, and that feature heavily on our shelves.

Horror movies and musicals, two great tastes, that taste great together. Who likes what? Is there singing? Is that a horror?

Leave a little scary musical feedback on our Facebook page.

There has been an awakening, we're not sure what or who that means, but Brian's wife Kristi joins us to try and figure it all out.  In our Episode XII, we try something a little different, we pick three likes, dislikes, and questions about Episode VII.
It's long, but we had a lot of fun and we hope you will too. 
If you dislike our likes, or like our dislikes, let us know on our Facebook page.
