    #46: "BABYLON" (2022): The Unrequited Love Story

    We're back, baby!! To kick off the first episode of 2023, we are diving into "BABYLON" (2022) Damien Chazelle's latest, most controversial film, starring Brad Pitt, Margot Robbie and Diego Calva, as a bunch of dreamers who ride the wave of Hollywood's transition from silent film to talkies, which also marks the end of the depraved and decadent world that it once was.

    In this episode, we discuss many of the true historical origins of many of the "Babylon" characters, the book "Hollywood Babylon," the original "Babylon" script, and the polarizing ending.

    #44: Angels On Earth | "City of Angels" (1998) ft. Brittany Stiles

    On this episode, we continue with the series on angels with "City of Angels" the very 1998 Hollywood remake of one of the greatest films of all time ("Wings of Desire") starring Nicolas Cage and Meg Ryan. We have special guest Brittany Stiles, friend of the pod, who helps us break down the movie. Questions discussed include, but are not limited to: Should angels wear trench coats? Did this movie up the sales of Rolling Rock? Is surgeon the American version of a German trapeze artist? How on earth did this get made?
