‘Movie For Two’ is your movie night in podcast form, where you relive your favourite films of all time as we break down the movies that are better watched together. Hosted by Dani Leigh and Tim Collins.
'21 Jump Street', Woke Kids and Ripped Jesus
Anyone else want to "teenage the f**k up"?! In this episode of Movie For Two, we marvel at the staggeringly effective absurdity of the buddy cop comedy, '21 Jump Street'. In between the pretty regular laughter, we chat about the way this movie reimagines what is considered funny, discuss how it achieves a higher baseline for its gags, talk about how it drills into a train of thought literally everyone has had, and express our huge appreaction for the construct of woke, anti-bullying, environmentalist drug dealers.
'Jackie Brown', Droopy Mouths and Squeaky Jackets
"AHHH, MOVIE FOR TWO. WHEN YOU ABSOLUTELY, POSITIVELY GOTTA NAIL A MOTHERF***IN PODCAST, ACCEPT NO SUBSTITUTES". Honestly, we're not that arrogant, we just wish we could get Samuel L. Jackson to adapt his best line and say it like that for us. Until that happens (never), join us for a re-examination of the most un-Tarantino of all the Tarantino movies, 'Jackie Brown'. Up for discussion in a wide-ranging chat about an underrated 90s classic is: whether this movie is a Tarantino-y 'Ocean's 11', why this role is so unique for De Niro, how this film laid some groundwork for 'Breaking Bad', whether waffles are the most powerful food, and why Louis and Melanie should get back together for a stoner YouTube mini series.
'The Big Sick', Podcast Agents and Rays of Light
In self-isolation we're all in a coma of sorts, so why not tackle a coma movie?!?! In this episode of Movie For Two, we, just like 'The Big Sick', find rays of light and humour against a rather bleak and frustrating backdrop. While chuckling along to the movie's array of quirky and sharp lines, we discuss the film's unique arc and concept, chat about its relatability that's delivered by genuinely real characters, ask whether the whole movie defies description or categorisation, and wonder whether Emily should be getting free post-coital Uber rides.
'Sicario', Flip Flops and Questionable Hygiene
Forget "Welcome to Juarez", this is "Welcome to, well, ummmm... Juar-antine"? In this episode of Lunacy For Two, (yes you read that correctly) we decide to throw ourselves into the incredibly dark drug-war thriller, 'Sicario', in order to match our mood as the nothingness of self-isolation sets in. With our TV equally as scared as us, we discuss this movie's less-is-more approach, chat about its unique delivery in an otherwise over-saturated genre, have our hairs stood up by the film's epic score, ponder whether we need a hygiene-attentive friend like Reggie, and ask whether Josh Brolin is the world's outstanding candidate for a remake of an Aussie classic.
'American Hustle', Microwave Struggles and Hair Rollers
Get your perm on, people! In this episode of the pod, we dive into the daring and dazzling who's-conning-who drama set in the 1970s, 'American Hustle'. While playing a bunch of the pop-music bangers from the movie's Grammy-nominated soundtrack, we chat about an ensemble of stars being let off the leash, Christian Bale's incredible transformation, David O. Russell as a zany Scorsese, Dani's shared experience with microwaves, and why this movie could empower a few to get out the hair rollers. Also, we've run out of beer in isolation!
'When Harry Met Sally', DM Sliding and Isolation Delirium
This is unquestionably the most fun we've had doing an episode so far. So in these strange times of isolation and day-time drinking, come and join us while we chat about idyllic Manhattan, DM sliding, elderly cameos from 'Superbad' stars, fake orgasms, wagon wheel coffee tables and, just more generally, the greatest rom-com ever.
