    The Green Mile (1999)

    The Green Mile (1999)

    Based on the book of the same title written by Stephen King, comes a movie adapted and directed by Frank Darabont of Walking Dead fame. Tom Hanks and Michael Clark Duncan star in this gut-wrenching film about prisoners on death row in 1930s Louisiana. Though it’s a powerful movie, it is not without its flaws and harmful stereotypes. (And pro tip, watch this movie on HBO Max.)

    The Master (2012)

    Listener beware, spoilers begin at (00:16:24).
    Written and directed by Paul Thomas Anderson comes a movie starring Joaquin Phoenix, a troubled ex-soldier, and Phillip Seymour Hoffman, a cult leader. Anderson denies that that the cult in question is Scientology, but you watch the movie and try to tell us it isn’t. Amy Adams and Laura Dern also star in Anderson’s favorite movie out of his own catalog. And we wonder, did Tom Cruise ever have to go through this auditing process?

    Nebraska (2013)

    Start your road trip in the great plains state of Nebraska and join Bruce Dern, Will Forte, and Bob Odenkirk as they navigate tough family ties.

    Brazil (1985)

    Brazil (1985)

    It’s not just a philosophy teacher’s fever dream. Brazil, directed and co-written by Monty Python alum Terry Gilliam, has a lot to say about technology, bureaucracy, and loss of individual freedom between scenes of intestinal air ducts and suits full of sewage. There’s stuff we did and didn’t like, but I think we can all appreciate seeing Jonathan Pryce in one of his few leading roles. Grab your annotated copy of 1984 and settle in for this light sci-fi, absurdist criticism of society.

    Three Thousand Years of Longing (2022)

    Three Thousand Years of Longing (2022)

    A.Ron’s is feeling warm and fuzzy and Jim is feeling pretty much nothing. When you can describe a movie as “erotica for the Twilight crowd”, that is going to attract a very particular audience, and that is A.Ron apparently. As if he weren’t magical enough, Idris Elba stars as a djinn granting Tilda Swinton’s wishes. Jim and A.Ron will be back for more first run coverage for Don’t Worry Darling and Amsterdam!

It’s fine background noise

This is a good podcast to put on when I’m doing other things and not completely invested in listening. Mostly I enjoy what they have to say, but sometimes I find myself asking, out loud, “did you guys even watch this?!?” Constant misnaming of characters, mispronunciation of simple names and words, and not knowing very basic things about the stories can become incredibly frustrating very quickly. *Examples: I recently listened to an albeit very old episode about The Americans where they referred to the FBI agent next door as Henry… which is actually the name of the 10 year old son. 🤦‍♀️ Also, James Garfield was the 20th president of the US, he didn’t play Mark Zuckerburg’s frenemy in The Social Network 🙄 On their other podcast they kept referring to Eleven on Stranger Things as “Seven.” Seriously?!? These are MAIN CHARACTERS of the shows you are recapping, not inconsequential background characters. At least learn the names.

Absolutely my favorite TV podcasters!

I choose to watch what these guys watch because I like “hanging out” with them to hash it out. Keep doing what you do guys! Haters gonna hate.
