Ep. 399: Bad Boys for Life (2020) — Part 3s, Chapter 2

December 24th, 2020

Producer's Note: We lost a good bit of audio due to some technical issues, but we salvaged as best we could, mostly leaving our reviews and analysis, which is hopefully why you're all here. 

We wrap up our Part 3s, Chapter 2 marathon the way we have every year for the past few years—talking about the highest grossing (domestic) film of the year. And this year, things got wild as a early winter release lead the pack due to COVID. That's right, we're heading to Miami to talk all about Bad Boys for Life. This week, we're talking all about the films approach to gender and identity. We look at some of the films its cribbing from, and weather its work is a proper homage or played out pastiche. We also talk the state of current popular cinema.

Ep.396: Alien3 (1992) — Part 3s, Chapter 2

December 3rd, 2020

Happy Mank Day! In honor of David Fincher's newest movie, we're kickstarting our new marathon Part 3s, Chapter 2 with Fincher's first film, Alien3. Through the years, Fincher has been evoked a number of times, through our early Fincher Rule that we harnessed Dalton with to talking a number of his films. So, it only made sense we'd tackle the notorious third entry in the Alien franchise to celebrate the release of his newest work Mank. On this week's show, we're talking all about religious groups in films, studio intervention, the film's messaging in contrast with Alien and Aliens, and much more.
