Episode 23 – The Bridge on the River Kwai

, with special guest:

Bridge on the River KwaiThis month, we began our new relationship with the Trylon microcinema in Minneapolis!  They have great popcorn!  For our first film, we watched David Lean’s epic masterpiece The Bridge on the River Kwai featuring Sir Alec Guiness and William Holden.  There was much whistling and a bridge was destroyed!  Nary a lightsaber was to be seen! We had great fun talking about this movie with the attendees of the film and you can hear how much fun if you only listen to the episode!

Our June 1st episode will feature guests Kelvin Hatle and Jerry Belich as we talk about the David Lynch’s failed epic, Dune!

Episode 4 – Lawrence of Arabia

, with special guest:

Lawrence of ArabiaHoly 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!
