    #67 American Graffiti - UW Film Club Podcast

    "This is the most beautiful, exciting podcast I've ever heard in my life and I don't know anything about it."

    If you're anything like us, you're probably still reeling from the monumental 2020 Oscars, where club favorite film Parasite took home 4 awards, including Best Picture (being the first foreign language film to do so). So in honor of Parasite etching its name into the legendary monolith of film history, we've decided to cover a film all about paving ones own path and legacy: American Graffiti! On this episode, we talk about the film's setting/historical context, its themes of nostalgia and moving on from the past, and George Lucas' storied yet stormy film legacy. Where were you in '62? If you're reading this, you likely weren't alive, but you should still check out the 67th episode of the UW Film Club Podcast now!

    On this episode: Jim Saunders and Joey Franklin

    #64 Joker - UW Film Club Podcast

    #64 Joker - UW Film Club Podcast

    "I used to think my life was a tragedy, but now I realize, it's a podcast where some college students talk about movies."

    Joker, one of the most controversial films of 2019, has now (for better or worse) unexpectedly garnered 11 Oscar nominations - the most for this awards season, and for any comic book film in history. And while podcast host Jim is mostly indifferent about the film, he sits down to talk to a few special guests who enjoyed it more than he did. In this episode, we talk about Joaquin Phoenix's impassioned performance, the film's lack of subtlety and depth in its message about *society* and treatment of the disenfranchised/mentally ill, as well as whether it holds up on its own amongst the DC mythos from whence it originated. You want to hear another joke? Well, you'll get what you deserve on the 64th episode of the UW Film Club podcast! Tune in now!

    #63 The Dark Crystal - UW Film Club Podcast

    #63 The Dark Crystal - UW Film Club Podcast

    "The podcast didn't say anything about this!
    Podcasters don't know everything!"

    On this week's episode, podcast host Jim Saunders and social media/communications lead Isaac Flores talk about the fantasy cult classic film The Dark Crystal! The film, featuring meticulously crafted creature and production design, features an unfortunately lackluster story, but still set the stage for even grander and more ambitious fantasy stories to come in the cinema landscape. Check out our 63rd episode of the UW Film Club podcast now!

    #62 The Wolf Of Wall Street - UW Film Club Podcast

    #62 The Wolf Of Wall Street - UW Film Club Podcast

    "Let me tell you something. There's no nobility in podcasting."

    Happy New Year, Huskies! We hope you had a relaxing winter break and are ready to kick things back in gear this quarter. But despite the stress and dread that comes along with the start of winter quarter, also comes the start of awards season! Martin Scorsese's The Irishman, though earning 5 nominations, was completely shut out of the Golden Globes. Whether that means a shut out from the Oscars remains to be seen, but in the meantime, we've decided to talk about another one of Scorsese's recent gems - The Wolf of Wall Street! In this podcast, we discuss the film's genius structure, debate whether or not it endorses the actions of Jordan Belfort, and Jim gives his hot takes on Scorsese and (in an unrelated note) the best Star Wars film. Let me give you some legal advice: listen to the 62nd episode of the UW Film Club Podcast now!
