    Episode 20 - Star Wars: A New Hope, Part 2

    PART 2!

    This week, we’re doing something we haven’t done before! Since Return of the Jedi is number 73 on the list, and TC hasn’t seen any of the original Star Wars trilogy, we are going through these movies in the order they are meant to be watched, starting with the original film. Its time to do Star Wars: A New Hope (1977), written and directed by George Lucas.

    BONUS EPISODE - Hotel Mumbai

    BONUS EPISODE - Hotel Mumbai

    This week, we watch one of the scariest movies we've ever seen.  This film depicts the real life tragedy of the 2008 Mumbai terrorist attack, and does it almost too convincingly.  A very well made movie that we'd be hard pressed to recommend, but if you can tolerate violence (or you think you can), this one is worth a watch.  Hotel Mumbai (2018), directed by Anthony Maras.

    Episode 74 - M

    Episode 74 - M

    This week, we watch one of the oldest movies on the list. This movie stands out from the early ‘talkies’ for its incredible dark subject matter and very naturalistic acting. Peter Lorre does something here that none of us have seen before, and its amazing that he did it nearly 100 years ago. M (1931), directed by Fritz Lang.

Blessed to have randomly come across this podcast

I was up late one night after watching Roman Holiday and for some crazy reason I ended up across a title on Spotify that said Roman Holiday. Curiously I played it, not knowing it was a podcast. I fast forwarded it and discovered what an incredibly funny and informative podcast it was. I love the idea of watching the top 250 movies and I plan on riding along on this exciting journey!

Insightful and funny!

These guys are pretty hilarious and also quite insightful!! Great podcast to listen to if you're commuting or just interested in learning more about movies - everything from interesting movie facts (behind the scenes / how the film was shot). They do a good job of keeping it light but also touching on deeper issues.
