Episode 105 – Dog Day Afternoon

, with special guest:

Dog Day AfternoonWe continue our focus on crime films with a look at Dog Day Afternoon. John Cazale and Al Pacino star in this look at a bank robbery that goes both comically and tragically wrong. Based on a true story but filled with impressive improvised scenes, the movie represents Pacino at the height of his movie star powers. Jason Kruger joins us to watch the film and he knows, basically, nothing about it at all. If you are like Jason, it is time for you to give this movie a look!

Next up, we will finally watch Pulp Fiction!

Episode 103 – The Godfather

, with special guest:

Our next series of films is going to be the crime series and we start with one of the most classic movies about American gangsters you can find, The Godfather! ¬†Marlon Brando, Al Pacino, Talia Shire, James Caan, Robert Duvall and…you get the idea. Directed by Francis Ford Coppola, this film is genuinely iconic. Even if you haven’t seen this movie, you’ve probably seen several dozen parodies of the film. Our newbie and sometime regular Barb Lind had somehow never seen the movie so we treat her to a first time with the Corleones.

Next up, we continue with he crime theme as we watch The Sting.
