    Rock N Roll High School w/ Bob Odenkirk and Richard Whitley

    Rock N Roll High School w/ Bob Odenkirk and Richard Whitley

    Bob Odenkirk (Mr. Show with Bob and David, Breaking Bad Better Call Saul) and Richard Whitley (screenwriter of Rock N Roll High School) join the Four Old Millennials to talk about the 1979 Ramones musical Rock N Roll High School.  Not long after the 40th anniversary of the film's release, Richard takes us through some of the screenwriting and production processes and regales us with some stories about The Ramones, Roger Corman, and what it was like being on set for the filming of the movie.  After his interview, the rest of us talk about some of the wacky moments in the movie, the amazing soundtrack, Riff Randell as feminist icon, and whether any movie has ever done a better job of showcasing a relatively-unknown musical talent.

    The Skulls

    The Skulls

    Join the Four Old Millennials as we break down the Joshua Jackson/Paul Walker secret society movie The Skulls.  We ponder why they avoided using the name "Yale University," wonder whether your secret society is really a secret if everyone knows about it, and learn precious little about Megan's time in her very own college secret society.

    Save the Last Dance

    Save the Last Dance

    Crooks, Megan, Dave, and Dana break down the 2001 hip hop love story, Save the Last Dance.  Is this the greatest soundtrack of all time?  Can a bunch of 30-somethings convincingly play high schoolers?  Would this film be better if they cast an actress who could actually dance?  Join us as we step-touch down memory lane and debate who we would've rather seen play Julia Stiles' role.

    Varsity Blues

    Varsity Blues

    Crooks' former high school football teammate Eric Bramwell joins the podcast to talk about the 1999 high school football movie Varsity Blues.  We tell stories about our crazy high school football coach, break down the absolute nonsense version of football the movie presents, address all of Tweeder's glaringly-problematic dialogue and reflect on a time when super baggy clothes were still a cutting-edge trend.

    Dazed and Confused

    Dazed and Confused

    Tony Ochs joins the podcast to talk about the 1993 classic "Dazed and Confused."  Grab a sixer, spark a joint, and join us at the moon tower while we dig deep into the music, cars, rampant drinking and driving, and Wooderson's life as a full-blown creep.
