August 26th, 2021

We journey back into the 90s with a look at a little gem from 1992 that boasts a stellar cast, Sneakers. A massive hit upon release, Sneakers seems to have become something of an under seen hidden gem. Robert Redford leads a crew into a wrong man espionage escapade. We discuss the politics of early 90s Hollywood, cinema and the 1960s, the NSA, and much more! Tune in now!

Ep. 420: Safe House (2012)

August 19th, 2021

It's a movie from the year we began, an always surreal moment. "Nobody is safe. Nobody is house." It's a joke we've come to love, but how does the movie truly stand up? We discuss the politics of 2010s Hollywood, the implications of Denzel agreeing to be waterboarded for this picture, Ryan Reynolds career, and much more as we break open the action film Safe House.

Ep. 419: City Slickers (1991)

August 12th, 2021

We're sticking to the 90s, but we're drastically shifting genre as we take a look at the beloved 90s comedy hit, City Slickers. This Billy Crystal vehicle was a huge hit in the early 90s and even spawned a sequel. This week, we look back on 1991 in comedy. We're talking masculinity, the search for fulfillment, a little bit of wealth and class. Tune in now to hear our discussion!
