Tucker Stone, Morgan Jeske & Celia Mattison and the occasional guest check in on movies, and why they keep causing so many problems.
Zola, The Ice Storm, Soderbergh and TELL NO ONE
This week, Travis Bickle RETURNS to NYC: Celia reports back from watching Zola, Tucker reports from the living room on The Ice Storm, EVERYBODY clocks in regarding the Soderbergh movie that has the three word generic noir title--No Sudden Move? Get Sudden Moon? I can't remember, who cares. In the middle of that Morgan and Tucker meet a new contender in cinema's ongoing battle to produce the greatest foot chase: TELL NO ONE. If America wants to sleep on Harlen Coben, the French will step in!
The Films Of Kimberly Elise
Have we all really never seen or talked about the movie Set It Off, a movie which features Queen Latifah doing two guns, one-in-each-hand as best as anybody outside of Chow Yun-fat ever did it? That turned out to be the case. But wait, there's more: John Q as well, a movie that dares to ask the question of whether James Woods can play someone who has a legitimate moral arc where the conclusion is that he can in fact be a good guy. Today, tonight, this morning: there's no time like the present.
Mads-y Got A Gun
This time, it's 2020's Riders of Justice, courtesy of Anders Thomas Jensen and his beautiful perfect muse, Mads Mikkelsen. We also get into Streets Of Fire, a little about Zack Snyder (under pressure from Celia, I assure you!) and there's even a review of various bowls and their usefulness as soup receptacles.
Making Sense of Saint Maud
This time around, the crew (Morgan, Celia & Tucker) are all talking about Saint Maud, an A24 prestige horror movie told at a painterly pace by a woman who just might be Rose Byrne. Did you know there's another Coney Island that doesn't have hot dogs? Find out about that, and more, including depressing hand jobs used in place of dialog for character development on this installment of "a movie podcast". Bonus topics include: CRONENBERG.
What Are They Doing To My Beautiful Boy
It's a very special Abba-pology cast, with Tucker & Morgan diving into two of Celia's fist-pumpers, Muriel's Wedding and Mamma Mia: Here We Go Again. To maintain narrative coherence, they also get into Priscilla: Queen Of The Desert, which features Guy Pearce (from last week) and Abba (who feature prominently in the other movies.) But you already knew that, didn't you, you filthy maniac? Sure you did. It's Get Some O'Clock, buddy!
NOBODY Must GUY This PEARCE-CAST
This week, we're talking about Bob Odendirk's Nobody, whether there are enough bats in Arizona for dracula to have friends, and then it's time for Guy Pearce-ing it: The Rover, Ravenous & The Time Machine. Celia makes a claim for blankness, will Tucker recover? Whose side will Morgan take? What about bubblegum pop!
The ONLY movie podcast
What part convinced me?
Three film fans argue the merits of cinema’s latest releases as well as providing focus on older films. The podcasters seek to answer the age old question, which film genre is best? Is it the talking film? Or is it the violence film? To my knowledge, the only movie podcast currently available that’s really knuckling down on these important issues.
