Welcome to Odd Trilogies, a podcast dedicated to the strange inter-connectedness of film! To us, an "odd trilogy" is any set of three films—whether bonded by story, spirit, themes, and/or shared cast & crew—that we think has an interesting angle worth digging into! One of the classic examples of a "lesser known" trilogy is that the film Oldboy is actually the second part in Park Chan-wook's "Vengeance Trilogy!" But is it a sequel? What are the other two about? How does each one deal with the concept of vengeance? THAT'S something worth exploring!

Our "trilogies" are not limited to the deliberate or canonical, like Bill & Ted or Pixar's Cars; we also curate and discuss more incidental ones—trios with unofficial or less tangible connections, like our "Odd Nutcracker" or "Rise of Snyder" trilogies! Those trilogies may be based on a commonality that we find interesting or which is significant to film culture.

Whatever the connection is, we (your hosts, Logan Sowash & Andy Carr) apply our love and knowledge of film to analyze these trilogies as whole bodies, as well as the individual films themselves. Listen and laugh with us as we dive into the never-ending pit of cinematic connectivity known as ODD TRILOGIES!

    Aliens? Replicants? A floating Stellan Skarsgård? SPICE?!?! As Logan and Andy try to make contact with some extraterrestrial visitors, the duo pass the time by discussing THE SCI-FI ADAPTATIONS OF DENIS VILLENEUVE. The boys cover the French Canadian filmmaker's take on three sci-fi works: a short story (2016's Arrival), a sequel to a Ridley Scott cult classic (2017's Blade Runner 2049), and the classic Frank Herbert novel Dune (the combo of 2021's Dune and 2024's Dune: Part Two). How does the beloved filmmaker grow in the span of eight years? What choices does he make in the adaptation process for each project? How did he convince a movie studio to fund TWO Dune films?!?!

    Episode 77: Shane Black's Buddy Cop Sampler

    Car chases? Reluctant duos? Corruption? MURDER?!?! It must be time for SHANE BLACK'S BUDDY COP SAMPLER! Logan and Andy figure out if they're too old for this stuff as they cover the writer-director Shane Black by discussing three films that capture the best of his "buddy cop" style: 1987's Lethal Weapon, 2005's Kiss Kiss Bang Bang, and 2016's The Nice Guys. How does the subgenre evolve over time? Does Shane Black's voice change creatively when he becomes a director? Also, did they just call that man Gay Perry?

    In 1994, animation legends Don Bluth and Gary Goldman teamed up with 20th Century Fox to create an animation studio that would rival Disney.

What led to the unfortunate demise of the studio? Where are Bluth and Goldman now?!?! Find out on this magnificent new episode of ODD TRILOGIES!

Obsessive Viewer Podcasts ,

Excellent concept for a movie podcast, wonderfully executed

I am a huge fan of the concept of this show and the hosts are fantastic. There’s a great chemistry to every episode and grouping movies together through a common thread or idea to form an “odd trilogy” is such a cool way to bring a fresh perspective on film criticism. Excellent show!

Great Podcasts, Better Hosts

Love the new podcasts format for the true franchises or trilogies like Cars.

Appreciate all the small details and research you guys throw into the episodes. Keep it up! Looking forward to more light, hearted series like Cars.
