    Private Resort/Charlotte Northeast

    Private Resort/Charlotte Northeast

    Jenna is joined by actor, director, and Canadian, Charlotte Northeast (@northeast007) to talk about that rightfully forgotten 80's sex comedy, Private Resort! Yes, Depp's second feature film. Rob Morrow's film debut. A film so stupid, they vowed to destroy every copy ever made. Thanks to the power of digital media, they will never succeed! Be assured, this movie is a stinker. They discuss karate grandmas, boobies, Depp's butt, and ask the big question... what kind of private resort is this?

    Murder on the Orient Express w/R. Eric Thomas

    Murder on the Orient Express w/R. Eric Thomas

    Jenna is joined by host, comedian, and #1 news article reader R. Eric Thomas (@oureric) to discuss Kenneth Braughan's flex on that ol' Agatha Christie chestnut Murder on the Orient Express! Eric reintroduces Jenna to the word "flibbertigibbet" and they question the engineering (and ethics) required to squeeze more than one person into a single train sleeping quarters. They celebrate Leslie Odom Jr., Josh Gad, and Michelle Pfieffer's agents, question Olivia Colman's agent, and think deeply about the exquisite camp this movie could have-should have-been.

    The Ninth Gate w/Tai Verley

    The Ninth Gate w/Tai Verley

    Jenna is joined by actor, creative, steering committee member of Black Theatre Alliance of Philadelphia, and badass artistic director of Revolution Shakespeare, Tai Verley (@lapetiteroi). Jenna and Tai talk Roman Polanski's very strange, hyper hilarious, film The Ninth Gate. Tai saw this movie when she was 16, which is too young to see this movie. Both Tai and Jenna only remembered the "lady in the wheelchair", but they discuss separating art from artist, Depp's smoking habit, and how unintentionally(?) hilarious this film is.

    Moral of the story: Rich people are dorks.

    21 Jump Street w/Camille Young

    21 Jump Street w/Camille Young

    Jenna is joined by singer, actor, and superstar Camille Young (@cahppymeal) to go back to where it all started.... down on (21) Jump Street! Camille watched most of the 80's classic 21 Jump Street. Jenna was a slacker and only got through the middle of season 2, so Camille caught her up. Camille's mom asserts this is "Johnny Depp at his best." Camille and Jenna kind of agree? They determine 21 Jump Street is Degrassi meets Law and Order, the movie is just not their style, and they just don't make gritty teeny bopper cop shows like they used to.

    Secret Window w/Bryant Edwards

    Secret Window w/Bryant Edwards

    Jenna is joined by marketing manager and producer of Theatre Contra, Bryant Edwards to talk Secret Window! The movie I always type up as Secret Garden. They aren't the same! But also kind of the same? They discuss 2004 movie twists, Johnny Depp's luscious hair, and comfy robes. They also discuss how meh this movie is, David Koepp's uneven filmography, and Bryant's a big fan of the insurance lady who appears in one scene.

    Sleepy Hollow w/Terrill Braswell

    Sleepy Hollow w/Terrill Braswell

    Jenna is joined by actor, photographer, and host of the podcast Movie Movie Film Film, Terrill Braswell (@zzzmooch) to talk the 1999 Tim Burton classic, Sleepy Hollow! They discuss the intersection between science and the supernatural, Terrill's love of Christina Ricci, and the women of Sleepy Hollow. They explore how this feels like a PG-13 film, Miranda Witcherson, and the intersection between Jason Vorheese and the Headless Horseman.
