    Point Break (1991) w/Mia Allen and Chris Eadicicco from Alight Films - S5, Ep. 8

    Point Break (1991) w/Mia Allen and Chris Eadicicco from Alight Films - S5, Ep. 8

    Surfs up, brah! This week, Ben & Megan (and producer Molly) welcome special guests Mia Allen & Chris Eadicicco from Alight Films to discuss the classic action heist bonanza that is 1991's 'Point Break' starring Keanu Reeves and the late, great, always moist Patrick Swayze. Thankfully, Chris is an expert when it comes to all things PB, and will help the SIMAC pod understand just what exactly this movie is all about. Why are there bank robbing surfers? (cuz) Is Johnny Utah in love with Bodhi? (yes) Is Bodhi a cult leader? (yes) Why is this not called 'The Cowabunga Crooks?' They'll ride this enlightened wave all the way to it's ultimately confusing and unsatisfying conclusion. Radical!

    Moonlight (2016) - S5, Ep. 6

    This week, Ben & Megan (and producer Molly) slow things down a bit as they discuss their thoughts on the groundbreaking film 'Moonlight', starring Mahershala Ali and directed by Barry Jenkins, based on the play by Tarell Alvin McCraney. In their collective first ever viewing of the film, they discuss the themes and arcs that spoke to them most, the craft it took to tell this powerful story, why "Old Kevin" was literally booed by Molly, and most importantly, how they are each changed as individuals after having experienced this masterpiece. Holding a Metacritic score of 99 and winner of the Academy Award for Best Picture, Best Adapted Screenplay, and Best Supporting Actor (Ali), this episode, and this film, are not to be missed.

Great chemistry, fun concept

As someone who also does a podcast with their significant other about movies (it’s called Movie Lovers, check it out) I really enjoyed this podcast!! I listened to The Neverending Story episode — one of my faves — and was truly entertained and totally enjoyed going through the plot with them. You guys are rad, high five!!
