Have you ever tried to get your besties to sit down with you to watch your favorite movie but they show no interest? Imagine a world where you can MAKE them watch it. Join best friends Brandon and Jane as they take turns assigning their favorite movies to each other to watch for the first time. There will be hilarious non-sequiturs and heartfelt detours as they trek towards breaking down cinematic classics and classic flops. Follow us on a journey that is equal parts comedy and camaraderie. These are movies we love, and sometimes movies we loath, but always Movies We Missed.
Bridget Jones: The Edge of Reason
We’re back with Bridge and the gang in jolly old London! And Thailand for some reason? The whole gang is with us for round two: Renee Zellweger, Colin Firth, Hugh Grant, and the underutilized Jim Broadbent. We discuss love, marriage, international drug smuggling, and something we never thought we’d say — an ill advised lesbian twist
This week Brandon and Jane take a trip nearly 80 years back into the cinematic archive to watch Alfred Hitchcock’s Rope. We discuss the film’s initial tepid response, its coded homosexual undertones, and the power of a prep school housemaster who carries himself with the swagger of a seasoned detective. You won’t wanna miss this timeless thriller!
Join us as we cover this sapphic cult classic despite it having no actual lesbian content. We discuss the amazing CGI work of the early aughts, the joy of Faizon Love, the inherent queerness of Michelle Rodriquez, and the star power of our young Kate Bosworth.
This week Brandon and Jane discuss Wesley Snipes’ curiosity blonde hair, the demilitarization of a fictional police force of the future, and the restaurant wars that somehow ended in Taco Bell reigning supreme in 2032. What was 1993 thinking?! We spend this episode trying to figure it out!
The Wedding Singer
Join us for the iconic rom com starring Adam Sandler and Drew Barrymore in their first flick together. We talk about the 80’s, what year this movie would be covering if it was made today, and how being an Adam Sandler stan means just enjoying the movie “Happy Gilmore.”
Two Can Play That Game
On this weeks episode, Brandon and Jane discuss late 90’s/early aughts gender politicking in movies, Black romantic comedies, the chemistry of Vivica A. Fox and Morris Chestnut, and the under utilization of Mo’Nique! Also, we break down the the problematic nature of attempting to “train” your partner and the importance of a great lighting designer on the film set!!! (Ms. Viv is LIT!)
I listen to it while running and I don’t want to cry as much!
I don’t really like running. But somehow I’ve decided to train for my first half marathon. So I’m spending more and more time running. This is a favorite podcast to turn on while doing so, as it makes me want to sink into the sidewalk and curl into the full fetal position a little bit less.
The dynamic between the hosts is amazing. Jane has the best, contagious laugh and Brandon seems to know just what buttons to push to get it going. The commentary is smart, the hosts definitely do their research, but the asides are my favorite part and many a mile I’m laughing out loud! Overall the podcast is light and a welcome refuge.
Hysterical walk down memory lane
Fabulous commentary about movies you forgot existed or movies you defend to everyone. Jane & Brandon feel like your besties just hanging out keeping you entertained
My new favorite
I feel like I stumbled upon GOLD with this podcast. Honestly I never leave reviews, but I am compelled to say something after laughing and laughing for hours listening to this! Any time I need a pick me up (and I’ve needed a lot lately lol), I listen to an episode, and it puts me in such a good mood :)
