Schmovie Replay: Ep. 200-Movies Without A Schmovie
*Episode originally published 10/13/17*
The little podcast that could, just did! Ronald, Steve, and John celebrate the show's 200th episode with a trip down memory lane, followed by a time-bending journey beyond your wildest dreams. Bring snacks.
Ep. 389-Theater Camp, Winning Time, A Haunting in Venice and More!
Ron, Steve, and John are back with a brand new episode jam-packed with recent movies and shows they’ve seen, including Theater Camp, Winning Time, A Haunting in Venice, Blue Beetle, Nandor Fodor and the Talking Mongoose, The Unbinding, and probably more—who can keep up? Do your best!
Schmovie Replay: Ep. 217-The Schmovie Studios Movie Game
*Episode originally published 6/15/18*
As a departure from their boring habit of talking about movies that "exist," Ronald, Steve, and John pretend to be studio heads trying to devise a successful slate of imaginary works. Creative collaborators are chosen at random and then the guys pitch their ideas to each other. Dreams will be forged. Some will fail. Aka just another day at Schmovie Studios.
Ep. 388-Eden Lake (2008), The Changeling, Barbie
Ron, Steve, and John are looking for nice vacation spots and have narrowed it down to three choices: A remote quarry in the English countryside, New York City, or Barbieland. As research, they watched UK “hoodie horror” nail-biter Eden Lake (2008), Apple TV+’s adaptation of Victor LaValle’s wild, scary, and emotional novel The Changeling, and an obscure little movie you probably haven’t heard of called “Barbie.” Listen in to find out where the guys end up.
Ep. 387-Steve Saw Blue Beetle and The Last Voyage of the Demeter
Ron, Steve, and John are on a bit of a summer break but had time to squeeze in a quick one. DC's latest superhero origin story, Blue Beetle, is discussed, as is Dracula prequel The Last Voyage of the Demeter, both of which only Steve has seen. (Literally, Steve is the ONLY person in the world who saw these films.)
386 - The Offence (1973), William Friedkin Remembered, and More!
This week’s Required Viewing selection is Sidney Lumet’s intense, dialogue-driven police thriller, The Offence, in which Sean Connery portrays a dangerous, broken version of the usual hero detective. Then the guys take a look at the long, diverse career of the late, great William Friedkin before running down a smattering of recent things they’ve seen, including Apple TV+’s The Beanie Bubble.
Best guys to ever do it!
Ronald, John and Steve are the level headed masters of film discussion in my book, good apples all of ‘em!
A positive in the negativity of covid
While people are having a hard time dealing with a pandemic and quarantine, the fact that we get more episodes of Movie Schmovie is a huge positive! My podcast listening habits changed from personal development shows on my commute to listening to shows like Movie Schmovie while I’m doing yard work and projects in the garage. I’ve gotten a bunch of great recommendations for movies and shows that I wouldn’t have watched before hearing Ron, Steve, and John recommend!
