Episode 14 – Vertigo

, with special guest:

VertigoFor our first episode of 2014, we watched the greatest movie ever made!  At least that is what the Sight & Sound 2012 poll says.  Hitchcock’s Vertigo was projected onto the big screen at the Parkway theatre and we enjoyed Jimmy Stewart and Kim Novak in all their 35MM glory!  What did Jena think of Hitchcock’s most psychologically messed up masterpiece?  Listen to find out!

Join us on the 15th when we’ll be watching Charles Chaplin’s Modern Times!

Episode 13 – Trading Places

, with special guest:

Trading PlacesIt being December and all, we decided to watch a holiday movie.  The only problem is the one type of movie Jena has watched is Christmas movies. That meant we had to go for a movie that had a rather loose relationship to the holiday.  We returned to the heady days of Eddie Murphy’s youth when his career still seemed to be going places to watch a movie about classism, racism and gorilla sex.  That’s right, we watched Trading Places!  And yes, we said gorilla sex.

Join us for our next episode on January 1st.  We’ll be watching and discussing Alfred Hitchcock’s Vertigo!

Episode 12 – John Carpenter’s The Thing

, with special guest: ,

The ThingOnce again, we recorded live at Pepito’s Parkway Theatre in Minneapolis.  This time, we were joined by Matt Allex from the Horror Show Hot Dog.  We returned to the magical year of 1982 with Matt’s favorit movie: John Carpenter’s The Thing.  The print was absolutely phenomenal and the movie is one of the great horror films of all time.  We were joined by an enthusiastic audience for an ejoyable afternoon of death and nihilism.

Note: We had a few issues with the microphones when we were recording this episode so there are some lengthy silences.  Sorry about that!

Our next episode will be a very special Christmas episode where we watch just about the only Christmas movie Jena has never seen – Trading Places.

Episode 11 – Playtime

, with special guest:

PlaytimeThis week, we tackle Jaques Tati’s comedy Playtime.  In a unique twist, neither Tim nor Jena had seen the film.  It is also our first “foreign language” film although the fact the movie is French is hardly relevant as the dialogue is almost completely unnecessary. If you’ve never seen the movie and you have Hulu Plus, that would be a great way to check it out.  Even if you haven’t seen the film, you should totally listen to the episode as Playtime may be the most spoiler proof movie ever created.

Our next episode will be recorded live at the Parkway Theatre on Sunday, November 17th.  We’ll be watching John Carpenter’s The Thing with special guest host Matt Allex from Horror Show Hotdog!

Episode 10 – The Abominable Dr. Phibes

, with special guest:

The Abominable Dr. PhibesThis episode will air on the day after Halloween so we decided that it was time to show Jena a bizarre horror film starring Vicent Price.  Much like The Matrix, nobody can tell you what The Abominable Dr. Phibes is – you have to see it for yourself.  Jena was clearly still unsure what she’d seen when the movie was over and that reaction was just about perfect.  If you haven’t seen the movie yet – go ahead and listen to the episode.  We promised that there is no way to spoil the cinematic experience that is The Abominable Dr. Phibes!

Our next episode airs on the 15th of November and it will be about Jaques Tati’s Playtime!

Episode 9 – Rear Window

, with special guest:

Rear WindowOnce again, we were able to record an episode live at Pepito’s Parkway Theatre in Minneapolis.  This time, we watched the Alfred Hitchcock classic “Rear Window.”  Not only had Jena never seen this film before, it was her first Hitchcock film ever.  And she got to see it on the big screen!  The print was amazing and you should all feel really bad that you missed it.  However, you can console yourself by listening to this episode where we dump love all over the master and one of this best films.

Our next episode will air on November 1st and we’ll talk about “The Abominable Dr. Phibes.”

Our next live recording at Pepito’s will be on Sunday, November 17th.  We’ll be watching John Carpenter’s “The Thing!”
