IMDbitch Fest is a bicoastal comedy podcast from Jo Hylton and Rhiannon Cates, two women whose friendship has been cemented by a shared love (or lust?) of pop culture. Every month we record an episode about a movie one of us hasn't seen, digging up as much gossip as we can along the way. Drinking games, holiday specials, and useless trivia abound.
Y2K'Oscars: No Country For Old Men (2007)
Sidle on down, saddle on up, and make your way over to west Texas, which Rhiannon, Jo, and our country's top geographers all agree is the more western side of Texas. Those saucy little media darlings the Coen brothers have produced yet another tale of the brutality of the human condition and we're here to break it down for you. Come for the Lord Farquaad haircut, stay for the achingly earnest love we clearly have for this movie.
Y2K'Oscars: The Departed (2006)
Hey wiseguy, why don't you park the cah and come on down to the bah where Jo & Rhiannon are cooking up a titillating tale of cat and mouse... or should we say rat and rat? It's a Southie story and it's got everything: cahps, contrah-f****n-ban, and a whole lot of microwprahcessahs.
Y2K'Oscars: Crash (2005)
Jo & Rhiannon take forty minutes out of their busy schedules to argue an impassioned case against the bizarre cultural artifact that is Crash, 2005's so-called "Best" Picture.
Y2K'Oscars: Million Dollar Baby (2004)
If you give a baby a million dollars...what happens? Jo & Rhiannon dive fist-first into the world of boxing to find out.
Y2K'Oscars: Return of the King (2003)
"Two girls to rule them all, two girls to find them, two girls to bring them all, and in the darkness bind them..." Jo & Rhiannon continue their treacherous journey through the 00's with this record-breaking best picture winner that is little more than a long series of widow's peaks, chapped lips, and horse murder. Join us as we explore a fantastical world where Gollum is everything, all elves are straight-edge (and pansexual), and Pirates of the Caribbean is as seminal as Star Wars.
Y2K'Oscars: Chicago (2002)
Extra! Extra! Calling all gum-shoes and stool-pigeons! Grab your bean-shooters and a gin chickey and cozy up to the radio as Jo Hylton and Rhiannon "Charlie" Cates spin a yarn about murder, molls, and mouthpieces in 1920's Chicago. It's a catchy little number, all about burlesque, Billy Zane, the big house, and Renée Zellweger's back muscles. And don't forget: this is Chicago, kids. You can't beat fresh blood on the walls.
