Two micks talk gangster films. Listener discretion advised. Now go get your f****n' shine box!

    Road to Perdition

    Road to Perdition

    Kevin and Scott return once again to the era of Prohibition America, in this dark and moving tale of a father trying to save his son, both literally and metaphorically, from the life of crime he chose long ago. Road to Perdition came out in 2002 and won an Oscar for best cinematography. Was it worth it? You'll have to judge for yourself, but one thing is certain, neither Kevin nor Scott will ever see Heaven!

    The Highwaymen

    The Highwaymen

    It's late September and summer's over, but in 1930's Texas, the Heat is on! In today's episode, Kevin and Scott examine the Netflix produced Bonnie and Clyde update, "The Highwaymen". Unlike previous versions of the lawless lover's tale, this film tells the story from the point of view of the men charged with hunting them down. And hunt them they did. With killer performances (pun intended) from Kevin Costner and Woody Harrelson as real life Texas Rangers Frank Hamer and Manny Gault, and a (mostly) accurate historical narrative, it's a grim but fascinating look into how 19th century frontier gumshoes were able to merge their experience and insights with new modern tools like wire tapping and fast, Ford cars that could take both predator and prey hundreds of miles across state lines in a single night.
    Manos Arribas, motherfucker!

    Once Upon a Time in America

    Once Upon a Time in America

    Shalom! You think the only wise guys in this f****n' country are Micks and Wops? I got news for ya, Bubbe! The Chosen People got plenty of Matza Balls, too! Thanks to our loyal listener, Patrick, Kevin and Scott were gifted with the recently restored director's cut of Sergio Leone's classic gangster epic, "Once Upon a Time in America". The film chronicles the lives of Jewish hoodlums growing up in the Big Apple. Spanning multiple decades and covering themes of friendship, betrayal, love, lust, greed and power, it's a true American Dream story. It is also very, very long. Oy Vey! Grab a knish and some kugel, cuz it's gonna be a long ride. Mozel Tov!

    Black Mass

    Black Mass

    In this episode, Kevin and Scott return once again to the streets of South Boston to shed some light on a very dark time in the history of Bean Town. Most of the nation learned of the notorious Whitey Bulger when he was finally captured in 2011 after 15 years on the lam, but for the people of Southie, he was always a known quantity. A benefactor to be respected, and a demon to be feared. Equal parts loving son, father, and horrific enforcer of gangland justice, Black Mass takes us inside the mind of a complicated, and sinister, man.

    Also, did we mention how HOT Juno Temple is???

    State of Grace

    State of Grace

    In this episode, Kevin and Scott take a trip to the West Siiiiiide!!! Specifically, the west side of NYC, in 1990, when it was still (just barely) known as Hell's Kitchen. If you never heard of State of Grace, it's probably because it came out the very same week as Goodfellas (poor bastards). But with an A-list cast, top notch musical score, and gritty New York streets filmed on location, it's sure to become your Movie of the Summer! Or, at the very least, a pleasant surprise.

    Slainte!
