Ep. 463: Top 100 Movies of All Time (100–81)

June 30th, 2022

Hello friends! That's right, you read the episode title correctly. This month, we're going to be counting down our individual Top 100 Movies of All Time! Over the next five weeks, we're going to be looking at and reflecting on the movies that shapes, inspired, entertained, and impacted us so much so that we've deemed them our Top 100 Movies! 

We've been working on this over the past few months, narrowing down thousands of titles to come up with what we feel are the cream of the crop for us. 

This week, we're looking at numbers 100–81! We hope you enjoy, and we hope you share your own lists with us!

Ep. 462: Anaconda (1997)

June 23rd, 2022

Producer's Note: There is some sort of audio issue with this episode, hopefully it's not intolerable to listen to. 

We finally wrap up our 1997 retrospective, dear listeners. This week, we travel down the Amazon in search of bad accents as we discuss Anaconda. The late 90s creature feature is stocked with a top notch ensemble of newcomers and a high profile veteran. But, does it keep us in its grips? We talk about colonialism, mid-90s CGI, Jon Voigt, and much, much more!

Ep. 461: The Peacemaker (1997)

June 16th, 2022

Welcome back friends, we're still existing in 1997. This week, we take a look at the globetrotting Mimi Leder joint The Peacemaker. Unfortunately, John Cena is nowhere to be found—or maybe we just can't see him. This week, Dalton gives us a very brief rundown on the Yugoslav wars, we examine the narrative idea of creating sympathetic villains, the professional dynamics based around gender that arise in the movie are also discussed, and much more hits the analysis table. So, grab your fatigues and fall in line as we take The Peacemaker into conversation.
