Episode 15 - The Oscars!

Thursday Apr 29, 2021

In this episode we are joined by not one, but TWO guests! We welcome back Saskia and Cameron to discuss the 93rd Academy Awards. We recorded the episode right after the ceremony finished and drunkenly discussed the more egregious wins, our opinions on the major films, and...some other stuff...memory is hazy. Enjoy!

Episode 14 - Abled Actors Playing Disabled Characters

Thursday Apr 15, 2021

With the Oscars just around the corner, we tackle a pet peeve: abled actors playing disabled characters and winning butt loads of awards for it. What is The Academy's fascination with these performances? Why are they still so prevalent? And how does the award-winning trend bar accessibility both in front of and behind the camera? With in-depth discussion on Rain Man, My Left Foot, and Scent of a Woman, and reference to Forrest Gump, Sling Blade, Coming Home, The King's Speech, Ordinary People, Joker, Silver Lining's Playbook, I Am Sam, The Theory of Everything, and more.

Episode 13 -The Happening

Thursday Apr 01, 2021

Happy April Fools! In honor of this ridiculous holiday we tackle and equally ridiculous film: the cinematic masterpiece that is M. Night Shyamalan's THE HAPPENING. Is it the best movie ever made? Is it the worst? Was the whole thing a joke played on the audience? Or did Shyamalan actually think he was making an important environmentalist work? We'll never know for sure, but we're happy to spend an hour speculating. Spoiled in this episode: The Happening...it was unavoidable.
