The best movies from around the world that don't exist and the people who don't exist that made them. Irreverent discussion, clips and interviews, hosted by the author of the Official Dictionary of Sarcasm, James Napoli, and the author of the LaLa Pettibone book series, Heidi Mastrogiovanni.
Go Martian, Go!
In the Season One Finale, Heidi and James hang out on Planet Funny with the creative force behind a Martian who becomes a college sports hero. If you fail to be moved by this rousing spectacle, then you probably will fail at most other things.
Before The Stench, When We Were Happy
James and Heidi have a gas profiling this blast of a film. You'll hear about the wunderkind director who is not afraid to ask the universal romantic question: "How far would you be willing to go to sustain a relationship founded on chronic flatulence?" Get ready to explode with emotion.
Raiders of the Lost Generation
Heidi and James welcome the power couple (oh, wait, they hate being called a power couple--they are way too edgy and non-corporate for that) who made a movie about the man fighting to live on the last tiny speck of undeveloped land in the world. Again, our guests are totally non-corporate. Really. You'll see.
Cops in Lofts
James and Heidi welcome Jake Guylenhall and Reese Witherfork to discuss the hottest topic in crime movies today: why so many movie cops live in lofts. Listeners will not fail to be moved by the exclusive movie clips in this episode, which feature a cop--and others--in a loft.
The Shark Whisperer
Heidi and James go deep for a profile of this boundary-busting family film from Dalt Wisney studios. A certain "Benecio" is among the in-studio guests who take us behind the scenes at a movie about the unsung heroes of the ocean. Sharks. Oh, and Shark Whisperers, too, sure.
James and Heidi welcome their most challenging movie yet! Wherein the protagonist only ever says one word: "Oh!" You know, like the mobsters in movies when they throw up their hands in utter disbelief at something untoward that just happened. Listen to this one, or...fuhgettaboutit!
Heidi and co-host have a wonderful rapport. Funny pretend movies as well. 👏👏👏
Like happy hour with witty, film-loving friends
Movies Not Movies is such a unique and entertaining podcast. Heidi and James contrast each other beautifully and every episode has thoughtful and laugh-out-loud, "OMG" moments. Listening feels like hanging out with two of your funniest, film-loving friends over happy hour. Never dull, always uplifting and well worth listening to!
A Comedy Jem!!!
