    S05E09: Any Given Sunday

    S05E09: Any Given Sunday

    Defector's David J. Roth pulls up a seat on the second footballiest day of the year as we talk about Oliver Stone's Any Given Sunday, a 157-minute "exploration of boundaries of filmmaking by peole who are permanently on LSD." Whether it's a #poppyfieldsmovie, why it looks so cheap, which Al Pacino(s) we get in this performance and what the F he's wearing, whose performance is most affecting (spoiler: LT's), what that smell is (spoiler: amyl nitrate), and much more in our discussion of a film that lists all the capital-I Issues with pro football, then chooses to run B-roll of lightning instead of engaging with them. Feast your ears on the fifth-season finale of Quaid In Full.

    S05E08: Playing By Heart

    S05E08: Playing By Heart

    Short Cuts waterboarded with sno-cone syrup...Love Actually from factory-irregular parts...a catastrophically premature Magnolia...it's Playing By Heart, which is 40 minutes too long, coy about a meaningless end reveal, and contains very few believable situations or lines of dialogue. How desperate is Angelina Jolie to get a reaction from her wooden scene partner? Why is James Bond obliged to deliver Intercourse PA jokes that are beneath even SDB? Why in god's name didn't Quaid and Anthony Edwards swap roles? And will your co-hosts ever agree on whether Serious Ack-tor DQ has to poo...or can't poo? We're aligned on the poo levels of the film, at least; it's an all-new Quaid In Full.

    S05E07: The Parent Trap

    S05E07: The Parent Trap

    We're moving into the DILF era for Quaid with 1998's The Parent Trap, which is too long, too loud, and too blithe about the Unsolved Mysteries segment that is this family's narrative...and yet its "welcome unreality" is charming, and so is Quaid. And so is our guest, Tara Ariano, who joined us for a discussion of everything from LiLo charisma wattage to Elaine Hendrix's score-settling hair to whether this is a poppy-fields movie. Turn your Hallmark brains on and welcome Dennis Quaid's teeth back to the podcast: it's an all-new Quaid In Full.

    S05E06: Everything That Rises

    S05E06: Everything That Rises

    It's DQ's directorial debut, a TNT movie called Everything That Rises -- and while there's no discernible connection to Flannery O'Connor, the flick's surprisingly good. Okay, the transfer we watched was very bad, and the dialogue's laconic sarcasm was a little TOO uniform across characters, but between Harve Presnell; an unnecessary but amusing barroom brawl; and Quaid being too busy directing to overact, the thing won us over. It's Hallmark meets Cormac McCarthy, plus the debut of Ask A Horse Girl, so quit Loaf-ing and listen to an all-new Quaid In Full.

    S05E05: Savior

    S05E05: Savior

    Our journey through the constipated-avenging-angel portion of DQ's c.v. continues with Savior, a harsh, weird, budge allegory of war and human connection set in the Balkans. Jeb adds to his collection of hall-of-fame Skarsgard quotes, Sarah doesn't know how sniping works, and a sociopath in a Luke Perry t-shirt trolls everyone, including the accent coach, in an all-new Quaid In Full.

    S05E04: Switchback

    Time is a flat Quaid in our Switchback episode: this miscast, dour late-'90s bag of action clichés is allegedly a remake of a German film called Kidnapped, but we can't find any corroborating evidence of that...or of Quaid's essential Quaidiness, as his Special Agent Hoint LaGlower roams the country trying to find the son someone -- Danny Glover? Jordan Catalano? -- snatched in the opening flashback.
    Fake map streets, Twitter fights, when you have to poo but you're on a call, useless car chases, broken ankles, and our other podcast, Tomatoes & Dicks on an all-new Quaid In Full.

No Matter How Obscure the Quaid...

The Bunsosity is always a 10, no matter what the film is bringing. Definitely one of my favorite podcasts.

This is why i am a fan of SDB

I thought it would just be fun and funny. But SDB does it again and makes thoughtful and intelligent commentary that has me seeing culture and pop culture in a new light. Always delightful, always insightful - thanks for this gem of a niche podcast!
