Reliving My Youth

Holy hell 1999 was quite the year for movies. I really appreciate Phil and Kenny for bringing that to my attention via this podcast. Half of the movies they've covered so far, I spent my late teens watching repeatedly on TV or DVD. It's also encouraged me to revisit a number of films that I had shrugged off as awful, but were actually great films *coughLIFEcough*. And vice versa. Keep it up, guys. You're doing great work.

There's been some other podcasts recently that have sprung up and are trying to jump on the 1999 bandwagon, but don't be fooled; this is the real deal. These dudes know and, more importantly, love the movies of '99 in a way that a true 1999 fan can just sense.

Never been a big Magnolia fan, but I'm excited to hear the boys try and change my mind!

Half good, Half Cringe

These guys are fine. Their bonafides speak for themselves. The films from this year certainly merit being discussed over a great expanse. Holy cow, though, does this show go all in on virtue signaling and trumpeting the PC ideology of the moment. Unlike the films from 1999, I'm afraid these discussions will feel horribly outdated in due time. If the discussion was 75% aesthetics and 25% ideology it would be easier to counteanance, but way too often it feels like those categories are reversed.
