Episode 92 – The Untouchables

The UntouchablesHaving watched Sean Connery play James Bond, we move on to watching Sean Connery in the only role that earned him an Oscar.  Alex Wick joins us for The Untouchables, a Brian De Palma directed crime drama about Chicago and Al Capone.  The movie features some fantastic set piece action as well as several truly riveting performances including Connery’s Oscar winning turn.  We also gush all over Ennio Morricone’s score because how can you not?

Next up, we take a look at the only George Lazenby Bond film, On Her Majesty’s Secret Service!

Episode 91 – Goldfinger

Goldfinger

Our Bond project officially begins!  Over the next several episodes, we will be watching Bond movies featuring each of the actors who have played this film icon as well as other movies featuring the same actor!  We begin with what many consider the best of the Bond films, Goldfinger!  Our companion for this film was Chrys VanDerKamp, who has limited Bond knowledge and leaves our Educational podcast anxious to learn more about the film series.  Don’t worry – we gave her a list.

Up next, we will watch another of Sean Connery’s best performances when we see The Untouchables!

Episode 90 – Moonlight

MoonlightThis episode, we tackle the 2017 Oscar winner for Best Picture: Moonlight!  After the crazy ending to this year’s Oscar ceremony, this film was crowned Best Picture.  We’re guessing you haven’t seen it.  In fact, neither Melissa or Tim had seen it either.  Still, we brought in Pat Wick, who also hadn’t seen it, to be our guest.  The film is notable for a lot of reasons, not the least of which is the fact it is the first film featuring an all black cast to win Best Picture.  It gave us a lot to think about and we hope you watch the film and it makes you think as well.

Next up, it is time to start exploring all of the actors who have played James Bond both in the Bond franchise and outside of it!  We’ll be starting with Sean Connery and Goldfinger!

Episode 89 – The Quiet Man

The Quiet ManFor our newest episode, we take a look at a project that was something of a dream project for John Wayne – The Quiet Man!  Directed by John Ford and featuring Wayne and Maureen O’Hara, this film is surprisingly unlike what most would expect from names like John Wayne and John Ford.  We are re-joined by Noel Thingvall, who has a better experience with us than he did when we watched La Dolce Vita.  We hope you sit back and enjoy this classic love story about a man, a woman, and a whole lot of tradition.

Next up, we’ll be watching the 2017 winner of the Oscar for Best Picture, La La Land Moonlight!

Episode 88 – Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs

Snow White and the Seven DwarfsThis week we have two special guests who join us for the Disney classic Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs. Lana Rosario and David Tyler McKay join us with little more than childhood memories of orange soda.  After a viewing of the film, we discuss all the ways it might not work for some modern audiences but also all the ways this film changed the movie industry forever.  It is also important to note that we are talking about dwarfs.  Not dwarves.

Next up, we will watch The Quiet Man!

Episode 87 – The Adventures of Prince Achmed

The Adventures of Prince AchmedOn this episode, we take a look at the oldest existing feature length animated film – The Adventures of Prince Achmed.  Our friend Cetius joins us to discuss this silent film created using silhouette.  It is remarkable to watch the film and recognize how much influence it has had on cinema over the years.  We highly recommend taking a look at this film.  You won’t be disappointed!

Next up, we will take a look at another groundbreaking animated film, Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs!

Episode 86 – The Man Who Would Be King

The Man Who Would Be KingOur latest episode features the guest stylings of Bob Alberti!  Bob joins us to talk about The Man Who Would be King.  The film features a post Bond Sean Connery and a pre Jaws 4 Michael Caine as two ex soldiers looking to make a fortune by making themselves kings.  We don’t want to spoil the movie so we won’t tell you how it works out for them.  If you watch the first ten minutes of the movie, however, you’ll probably be able to guess.  As if the two big name actors weren’t enough, this film was directed by the legendary John Houston and the costume designs were by Edith Head!

Join us next time when we’ll be watching The Adventures of Prince Achmed!

Episode 85 – La Dolce Vita

La Dolce VitaThis episode is a return to the world of Federico Fellini with two guests as we all try to determine if Melissa’s hatred of the film is misplaced.  La Dolce Vita is considered one of Fellini’s masterpieces.  But is it? We watch the film and do our best to appreciate it as film geeks.  You can decide for yourself how well we do

Please note: this episode was hacked.  The episode is fine but the post itself was meddled with.  Sorry about that.

Our next episode will be about The Man Who Would be King!

Episode 84 – Josie and the Pussycats

Josie and the PussycatsIt is a new year and we celebrate with a ridiculous movie that may not be great but is way better than it had any right to be.  Kelvin Hatle joins us to watch Josie and the Pussycats, a subversive comedy about product placement and corporate greed. It is also exceptionally silly and features an absolutely amazing performance by Parker Posey.  You have probably never watched this movie and while it is surprisingly dated for a film only fifteen years old, it is still a lot better than anyone could have expected.

Our next film will be an entirely different experience as we watch La Dolce Vita!

Episode 83 – A Hard Day’s Night

A Hard Day's NightWe have a first this week – it is the first episode of our podcast that doesn’t feature Tim at all!  Instead, Melissa is joined by Lauren Haven and John Youker.  They are present to watch the classic Beatles Film, A Hard Day’s Night!  This rather light and frothy mixture of Beatles music and a rather limited plot proved to be far more popular than the producers had dreamed.  John, Lauren, and Melissa discuss reactions to the film as well as spending some time talking about Christmas movies!

Our next film will be Josie and the Pussycats!
