Episode 96: Lucky
For this week’s episode we watched the 2017 indie film, Lucky starring Harry Dean Stanton. Throughout the movie Lucky is coming to terms with his mortality and decisions over the years, which sparked some deep thoughts on our own mortality. We learn that getting to make declarations about life is a perk of getting old. Set in a small southwestern town, we met many a character in this movie including a tortoise named President Roosevelt. Stay tuned for Book Nook to hear our thoughts on graphic novels.
Episode 95: Nobody Nailed Fophie (The One I Love)
This week we watched the indie movie, The One I Love. We dissected the movie’s plot (spoilers and all) by discussing our theories on the ending, explaining why this movie was unique and a thinker, and going into the character’s motivations for staying. The One I Love will keep you on your toes with all its thrilling twists and turns. Plus, Mark Duplass is in it and we love him on this podcast.
Episode 94: If Beale Street Could Talk
This week for the podcast we watched the 2018 film, If Beale Street Could Talk which is a screen adaptation of James Baldwin's novel. We discussed whether we agreed with the directorial choices, Caleb compared his experience with reading the book, and we analyzed the film's relevance to current societal issues. This is a thinker, folks.
Episode 93: Bill Murray, Love Detective (On the Rocks)
This week we watched the indie film, On the Rocks starring Rashida Jones and BIll Murray. From mixed racial messaging to rich people problems, this movie left us feeling conflicted. That being said, the topic of emotional and physical affairs affect on a person's livelihood comes up in this movie and led to discussion on both ends.
Episode 92: Spooktacular (The Blair Witch Project)
This week for the podcast we watched the horror film, The Blair Witch Project. The movie took a unique and somewhat believable approach to constructing a scary movie. We outline the movie by going through the interviews at the beginning, the hike, and the dramatic ending. Caleb debuts his Scale of Believability and Cathy ponders whether all horror films are like this one.
Episode 91: Wrong Amount of Weird (Operator)
This week we discussed the 2016 film, Operator. Operator is like Her only not as good. We didn't have a lot to say about this movie, but we try our best.
