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 69 – Grizzly Man

Grizzly ManIt is time to dive into the works of Werner Herzog with the documentary film Grizzly Man!  Herzog tells the story of naturalist Timothy Treadwell who researched grizzly bears up until one of them decided he looked like a tasty morsel.  Using mostly Treadwell’s old footage, the film is less about his death than it is about the effect his obsession had on himself and those around him.  Pat Wick joins us as stunt Jena even though she has seen the film and Tim has not!

Since we watched one film by Herzog, how about another?  Our next film will be Fitzcarraldo!

Episode 58 – Bull Durham

Bull DurhamIn part two of our exploration of movies about Baseball, we watched Bull Durham.  Pat Wick acts as our stunt Jena but it is Melissa who has never seen the film.  The film is one of the more quotable ones we’ve watched and is actually about baseball.  At least it is a little bit like baseball.  Susan Sarandon, Tim Robbins, and Kevin Costner star in this film that is as good as people have told you.

Our next movie will be Safety Last!

Episode 32 – The Dirty Dozen

The Dirty DozenJena had a last minute conflict so we were forced to enlist an emergency stunt Jena.  Fortunately, Tim’s wife Pat was available.  We had to make an alteration in movie (Pat has seen Man on Wire) so we pulled out The Dirty Dozen! This classic example of a mission movie involves a great cast trying to save the world from the Nazis.  Because that’s what heroes do.  They save the world from the Nazis.

Our next movie will, we promise, be Man on Wire!
