    Arthouse Summer: Hamilton

    Arthouse Summer: Hamilton

    In 2019, Walt Disney Studios purchased the rights to distribute the filmed stage production of the groundbreaking Broadway musical Hamilton with plans for a theatrical release in late 2021. Then came the global pandemic that effectively shut down all film and theatrical productions. In an unprecedented move on Disney's part, they announced that Hamilton would be released through their Disney+ portal in July 2020, quickly becoming the biggest event of month. A product of writer/lyricist/actor Lin Manuel-Miranda, the musical tells the story of the founding of the United States through the story of Alexander Hamilton using a diverse cast of actors that quickly became A-list talent within 5 years. But did this production deserve to be the acclaimed masterpiece many have hailed it or did it throw away its shot? MovieDude Eric, Chris Tondevold and special guest Kent discuss.

    Arthouse Summer: Hot Fuzz

    Arthouse Summer: Hot Fuzz

    In 2007, director Edgar Wright released the follow-up to his international hit Shaun of the Dead with Hot Fuzz, a buddy cop/serial killer horror/comedy starring Simon Pegg (who also co-wrote with Wright) as the morally rigid cop transferred to a small village and immediately comes face to face with a series of gastly murders poorly staged as accidents. The film solidified Wright as a visionary filmmaker, Pegg as a leading man alongside comedy partner Nick Frost. But does the film's comedy still hold up a decade on or should it be put on permanent suspension? MovieDude Eric, Chris Tondevold and special guest Jonolobster investigate for the greater good (the greater good).

    Arthouse Summer: Who Framed Roger Rabbit?

    Arthouse Summer: Who Framed Roger Rabbit?

    In 1987, decades before the concept of shared universes and multi-licensing deals would be considered a norm, producer Steven Spielberg and director Robert Zemeckis re-teamed to push practically every boundary of studio filmmaking at the time with their film Who Framed Roger Rabbit, a film noir set in a world where human beings and animated characters live and work together and a boozed private eye is tasked with clearing the name of a fading animated star accused of murder.
    The film was wildly successful if not a little controversial for its mature content wrapped inside a family comedy. But does the film still hold up after 30 years of technological and storytelling advances or should it be erased from existence? MovieDude Eric, Chris Tondevold and special guest Cecil Trachenburg from Good Bad Flicks follow the clues to their natural conclusion.

    Arthouse Summer: Live Die Repeat: Edge of Tomorrow

    Arthouse Summer: Live Die Repeat: Edge of Tomorrow

    By 2014, Tom Cruise was in a precarious situation in his career as he was rebounding from a troubled personal and professional crisis. Trying to keep the momentum of a couple of Box Office successes, he chose to headline a science fiction action film directed by Doug Liman called Edge of Tomorrow co-starring Emily Blunt about a cowardly officer forced to relive the day he died during an assault against alien invaders.
    Despite critical acclaim and high praise of audiences who saw it, the film tanked at the box office. It was only when the film came out on home video and streaming that the film received acceptance. But did the film deserve the reevaluation or were audiences right to ignore it in theaters? MovieDude Eric, Chris Tondevold and special guest Beef of Legends Podcast strap in to find out.

    Arthouse Summer: The Mummy (1999)

    Arthouse Summer: The Mummy (1999)

    In 1999, director Stephen Sommers began a partnership with Universal Studios to develop their long-dormant Universal Monsters franchise and reboot one of its least memorable installments; The Mummy. Gone is the suspense and dread and replaced with action adventure as we follow an Egyptologist, her troublesome brother, and the roguish hero who shows her the way to a cursed tomb. Few audiences and critics were looking forward to this film and even fewer could have forseen how successful it became, spawning two sequels along with spinoffs. But does the film still hold up or should it be long forgotten in the sands of nostalgia? MovieDude Eric, Chris Tondevold and special guest Christian Lee (The Internet's Dad) grabs some shovels to find out.

    Toy Story

    Toy Story

    In 1995, Disney Studios was at the height of their animation renaissance after owning half the decade in family entertainment. But they had a surprise for audiences that no one had seen coming as their partnership with revolutionary computer-generated studio Pixar released the first-ever feature film Toy Story. This tale of the secret lives of one boy's playthings not only took the Box Office but inadvertently launched a new frontier that is still being felt to this day. But does the film truly stand up to the title of modern classic? MovieDude Eric, Chris Tondevold and special guest David Dawson open the toybox to find out.

Great podcast

Great job keep it up

Phil Palumbo ,

good content, can't stand the host's voice and tone

One of the people in this podcasts talks like their mouth is constantly full, and talks in about half the time as the others. The content of the podcast is fine, I just can't stand this dude's voice. It's like his primary language was Hebrew the way he sounds his "K"s.

Was looking for this

I was looking for a podcast where people discuss the movies I enjoy. These gentlemen do that. The chemistry has gotten much better after multiple episodes. John is great, I wish Kent would talk more and Eric a little less. I'd love to see you guys do The Maltese Falcon, LA Confidential, Touch of Evil, Vertigo, The Rules of the Game. Keep up the good work.
