If anyone has ever told you "Relax, it's just a movie" this could be the podcast for you.

    S1E1 – About The Prestige

    S1E1 – About The Prestige

    The Prestige is a brilliant but complicated movie. We break it down a little bit for you. Here are some of the things we cover:



    Whether or not this movie has a “good guy.”



    How this entire movie is a magic trick and whether or not that makes it better.



    Whether or not Christian Bale takes himself too seriously in this role.

    S1E2 – About The Fighter

    S1E2 – About The Fighter

    Like 60% of this episode is just us breaking down how fantastic Christian Bale's performance is, but we also discuss:



    Why this movie isn’t really about boxing.



    Why Mark Wahlberg’s performance is better than people say it is.



    The many sacrifices that went into making this movie happen.

    S1E3 – About Fight Club

    S1E3 – About Fight Club

    We break the first two rules of Fight Club and discuss:



    Whether this movie is fundamentally about masculinity, the limitations (or lack thereof) of the human mind, or both.



    Why we think Marla’s character development falls flat.



    Whether the lack of physical realism weakens the impact of the film.



    Bonus: Baleigh mistakenly refers to Jackdurden.com as “Tylerdurden.com,” which is not a thing.

    S1E4 – About Interstellar

    S1E4 – About Interstellar

    Interstellar is a scientifically rich and visually brilliant, but is the dialogue stilted and emotionally two-dimensional? Baleigh says yes. We also discuss:



    Baleigh’s least favorite line and why it’s terrible.



    How the movie is a paradox and whether or not that’s a good thing.



    Why Topher Grace’s role makes no sense.

    S1E5 – About Groundhog Day

    S1E5 – About Groundhog Day

    Groundhog Day is a lot darker than we remember. We discuss:



    What this movie tells us about what it means to be a good person.



    How Phil Connors compares to Scrooge.



    Why Bill Murray makes such an excellent douchebag.



    Whether Ned Ryerson could have been played by anyone other than Stephen Tobolowsky.

    S1E6 – About Gladiator

    S1E6 – About Gladiator

    We’ve both seen this movie approximately 8 million times, so we get pretty far into the weeds. We discuss:



    Why all of this could have been avoided if Commodus had been properly loved as a child.



    Whether the mob truly loves Maximus.



    How Joaquin Phoenix gives an incredible performance as Commodus despite some silly dialogue.
