Episode 98 – Hot Fuzz

Hot FuzzThis episode, we are following Timothy Dalton from James Bond to the Edgar Wright/Simon Pegg comedy Hot Fuzz!  Bob Alberti joins us as our unsuspecting victim.  While he has co-written a play that features a character obsessed with Hot Fuzz, he has, until now, never seen it!  The film is a clever parody and homage to buddy cop movies that is delightfully over the top.  Timothy Dalton seems to be loving his role in this film and the film is packed with many well known British character actors.  You should definitely watch the movie before you listen!

Next up, we will return to James Bond as Pierce Brosnan gets his chance in Goldeneye!

Episode 97 – The Living Daylights

The Living DaylightsWe return to our James Bond series with the first of only two Bond outings by Timothy Dalton – The Living Daylights! Chrys VanDerKamp returns as our guest to decide for herself where Dalton falls in the “who is the best Bond” debate.  Tim and Melissa are both Dalton apologists as he is frequently viewed as one of the worst actors to play the role (but he’s no George Lazenby).  We talk about why we think Dalton is underrated in the role and also why everyone disagrees on which Dalton film is the best.  Melissa prefers this one.  Tim prefers License To Kill.  Melissa won…this time!

Next up – we are going to follow Timothy Dalton to Hot Fuzz!

Episode 74 – The Lion in Winter

The Lion in WinterThis week’s episode features another guest host from our sister podcast: A Reel Education – Noir.  Alee Elingsburg joins us to talk about The Lion in Winter, a classic historical drama about a fictional Christmas Henry II spent with his family.  It is full of political machinations, scenery chewing dialogue, and a very youthful Timothy Dalton & Anthony Hopkins.  Katherine Hepburn and Peter O’Toole are the stars who drive this whole acting train and they do a darn fine job.  We hope you enjoy the movie as much as we did!

Our next move will follow Hopkins to the peak of his career as we watch The Silence of the Lambs!
