Our last episode was about the soaring greatness of Lawrence of Arabia. A great movie it is but we figured that we needed to have a little more fun. This episode, we watched Mad Max 2, which is better known as The Road Warrior. Many cars were wrecked. Very few lines were delivered. Awesomeness was achieved. We were joined by Melissa’s friend Fes Works to enjoy this fine example of 80’s post apocalyptic action.
Our September 1st episode will be a tribute to the late Ray Harryhausen as we watch The Seventh Voyage of Sinbad!Error: No API key provided.

Holy crap! This movie is so long we had to split this episode into three parts! Lawrence of Arabia is an undisputed classic no matter what the length so Melissa and Tim couldn’t wait to show it to Jena. There is significant geeking about the score, the flimmaking and Peter O’Toole. If you have never seen this movie, you have missed one of the great pleasures of film geekdom. Don’t let yourself miss out for too much longer!
Our next episode will be out on August 15th and we’ll be watching The Road Warrior!Error: No API key provided.

We don’t want to be accused of only watching old movies so for this episode, we focused on the 2012 Academy Award winner for Best Picture – Argo! Not only has Jena never seen the movie, she has no first hand memories of the historical event upon which it was based! Not only does she get to learn about the movie, but she also gets to learn about something that happened. Well…if you ignore all the stuff that isn’t actually true.
Our next podcast will be on August 1st and we’ll be talking about Lawrence of Arabia!Error: No API key provided.

For our second episode, our permanent co-host Melissa Kaercher joins the party to enjoy one of the greatest movie musicals ever made – Singin’ in the Rain. We don’t know how Jena managed to go this long without experiencing “Make ’em Laugh” but that horrible oversight has now been rectified. Enjoy the episode and remember to jauntily tip your cap to Gene Kelly!
And keep an ear out for our next episode on the 15th of July when we look at 2012 Best Picture, Argo.Error: No API key provided.

Welcome to the inaugural episode of our podcast! This podcast will follow our attempts to educate Jena Young on the great films that she hasn’t seen yet. Or, occasionally, just the ones she doesn’t remember. This week’s episode was recorded before co-host Melissa Kaercher became a co-host so Tim Wick educates Jena all on his own. If you didn’t suss it out from the title, we start with one of Tim’s favorite films – Casablanca. To open the podcast, Jena tells us everything she knows about the movie she is about to see. Then we take a break to watch the movie. If you really feel like playing along, you can watch it too! Then we come back and discuss the movie. We hope you enjoy our first podcast and keep coming back for more!Error: No API key provided.
