Joey is out sick this week so in this brief episode Caitlin sits down with special guest Anne Halpin to talk about onscreen violence, action, and gore. How do parents navigate raising children with so much violence in the media? Does the industry have a moral responsibility to limit violence onscreen? And can audience members be trusted to separate movies and the real world for themselves? Email us at boothwindow@gmail.com, and/or follow us on social media @caitlinstow and @theobveeus

Happy Episode 20! To celebrate this milestone (?) we're paying homage to our homeland: Oregon.

One of the most cathartic genres (when done correctly) is easily the vigilante film. But what separates vigilante justice from simple revenge? How are female vigilantes different from male vigilantes? And how does the constantly shifting opinion on law enforcement inform the morals surrounding these high-octane action adventures? We do our best to answer these questions and more when we discuss Rolling Thunder (1977), Promising Young Woman (2020), The Dark Knight (2008), Miss Meadows (2014), and many more.

Come with us back in time to the 1990s; a time of white picket fences, kids ruling the world, and a lot of depressed dads. That's right, we're talking about family films! Specifically those made during one of the most prolific decades for film production. We touch on some of our childhood favorites, but mostly we ponder what was happening in the industry to encourage such a boom in PG storytelling, and why that trend hasn't kept up today.

ARE YOU READY TO RUMBLE??? We certainly were! This week we battle it out over our most contested titles: Moulin Rouge! and The Hunger Games, which Caitlin loves and Joey hates, and Blood for Dracula and Road House, which Joey champions and Caitlin criticizes. We've gotten so many comments about how polite we are to each other, we figured it was time to show just how much we disagree. Thanks for listening!

We’re tackling another decade of queer films, this time diving into the 1970s! From Rocky Horror Picture Show to John Waters, it was a wild ride of an era, focusing on exploration, experimentation, and free love. Joined by guest Cameron Shuman, we chat about Nighthawks, Cabaret, Dog Day Afternoon, Vampyres, The Boys in the Band and many more.

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!

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.
