Episode 69 – Grizzly Man

, with special guest:

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

, with special guest:

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

, with special guest:

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!
