Scott and Lee appreciate movies that are good, and so should you!
Episode 28 – Enchanted
Save the Movies is back with content I couldn’t be arsed to edit for almost a year!
Scott and absurdly talented henchman Lee watch Enchanted, a delightful deconstruction of a Disney princess movie. Before Ralph breaks the Internet was poking fun at Disney princesses, Enchanted was doing it, but, like, in a clever way.
Episode 27 – Shoot ’em Up
Hey hey, we’re posting podcasts again! Apologies for the bad sound. We had some recording issues. I compressed the crap out of it, so you should be able to hear both of us at least.
Scott and murder hobo Lee watch the dirty, exploitationy, cartoony 2007 action flick Shoot ’em Up, with professional creep Paul Giamatti and unnaturally attractive hobo Clive Owen. We think the moral of this one is… gun control?
In which we expound upon: Bugs Bunny, John Wick, leading man Steve Buscemi, Machete, angry white guys, Star Wars power creep, unenthusiastic plugs, ninjas vs wizards, Owen Wilson, tough babies, Constance Verity (Book 2 now on sale!), kinks, papyrus, The Campaign, and Patchwork (podcast coming soon)
Episode 26 – Krull
Scott and bandit with a heart of gold Lee watch Krull, the 80s era Star Wars adjacent fantasy movie that just won’t stop (killing bandits).
Much ado about: Peter Clines, Han Solo movie predictions (mostly accurate), Conan the barbarian (if he was a wizard), Liam Neesen (hey, let me axe you something), Starjammers (not familiar with this one), Star Wars (it’s inescapable), hack-achlorians (you’ll see), keytars, Jar Jar vs C3P0, unlikely bands of heros, Jurassic World (what could possibly go wrong?), multi biome worlds, glaive mistakes (…), sweetheart bandits, sincere apologies to Melvins, Skyline, Fantastic Beasts, and Steve Buscemi as leading man.
Episode 25 – Hudson Hawk
Scott, cappuccino lover Lee, and special guest and bon vivant Mark Finn watch Hudson Hawk, a Bruce Willis movie from before he became exclusively an American Cool Guy. It turns out Bruce Willis was in things before Die Hard!
Featuring: obscure b******t, Moonlighting, Mark and Lee Save the Movies ?!, Return of Bruno, Moonlighting, lyrical cursing, hack writer Shakespeare, goat-cheese pizza, the gory version of loony tunes, the price of bitcoins, Moonlighting, Josie and the Pussycats, government sponsorship, Finding Bigfoot hate-watching, lying in trailers, and movie horses.

Episode 24 – Niko and the Sword of Light
Scott and animated movie enthusiast Lee do what started as a mini podcast about Episode 1 of Niko and the Sword of Light to test out a new mixer and audio equipment, and turns into quite the mix of nonsense.
Featuring: A Lee Martinez fan fiction that I apparently promised to write, horrible robot deaths, Justice League, Lee’s Batman fan fiction, Nazi branding, the secret enmity that fuels this very podcast, Niko and the Sword of Light for about 5 minutes, Lee finally getting fed up with my limited movie knowledge, breaking the shackles of societies preconceptions, and objectivism.
Also a list of animated movies that Lee thinks I and everyone else should watch: Batman Beyond: return of the Joker, The Batman vs Dracula, and The Batman Superman Movie: World’s Finest.
Episode 23 – Sing
Scott and kangaroo with no discernible accent Lee watch Sing. An animated movie from Illumination, the same studio of Minions infamy, about animals having an American Idol style show. Not sold yet? Give us an hour and we’ll see if we can sell this thing.
Featuring: A movie made after 1990, the muse of practicality, how to shoot an action scene, classic Jackie Chan, the physics of CG, the end of culture, monocle reactions, Babylon 5 jokes, Minions!, Matthew McConaughey modes, anthropomorphic accents, and old man rants (thanks Lee)

Great hosts who crack me up!
Love the camaraderie of the two hosts. Feels like you are hanging out with friends talking about movies that deserve more love or at the very least make for a fun and funny conversation.
I love listening to this! They’re so funny! It’s like listening to friends.
I like the chemistry between the hosts, the concept of the podcast and the movies they choose. My only complaint is I wish it would come out more frequently. Also Lee is an amazing author and everyone should check out his books.
