A movie podcast that's late... but still too early.

    1996 at the Movies: FEELING MINNESOTA

    1996 at the Movies: FEELING MINNESOTA

    Twenty-five years of Keanu being confused.
    And why wouldn't he be by the uncomfortable shifts in tone in this mid90s Tarantino ripoff? However we have bigger questions, SUCHAS:


    How dirty does a bathroom have to be before you wouldn't have sex with Cameron Diaz in it?
    Does it matter if said bathroom has been used more than once (though once is enough) by the bug from MEN IN BLACK?
    And back to the bathroom business... one host is ready to answer in the affirmative even if it's the stall from TRAINSPOTTING.

    We are all disgusted.

    1996 at the Movies: SWINGERS

    1996 at the Movies: SWINGERS

    Yes, this is kind of like Vince Vaughn unpausing the Sega Genesis game of hockey...
    ...but if we didn't cover HAPPY GILMORE then we most certainly were not talking Adam Sandler's lesser known 1996 comedy BULLETPROOF. Unlike that wide release Jon Favreau and friends were making the festival circuit in fall of 96 and your hosts of SOBER CINEMA were nowhere near it.

    For one host it would be stumbling across this gem on cable.

    For another host it was the above host quoting this movie incessantly and ruining the whole thing.

    And for yet another host he believes he lived SWINGERS during his single days in Miami. His name is Jairo. He is an idiot.

    Enjoy!

    1996 at the Movies: THE TRIGGER EFFECT

    1996 at the Movies: THE TRIGGER EFFECT

    We prepare for the breakdown of society caused by confusing Dermot Mulroney with Dylan McDermott.
    As 2020 proved... nothing can be agreed upon ESPECIALLY with the talents of Ms. Shue standing in between with her futile attempts at mediation in David Koepp's THE TRIGGER EFFECT.

    Along the way we learn about the inherent madness of participating in one host's homeowner's association and perhaps less strangely the participation of auteur David Cronenberg in a Tom Arnold comedy called THE STUPIDS.

    This episode is illuminating.

    1996 at the Movies: THE ISLAND OF DR. MOREAU

    1996 at the Movies: THE ISLAND OF DR. MOREAU

    This is an episode about blowholes.
    And penile implants.

    Also it's sometimes about John Frankenheimer's bullpen assignment for the Val Kilmer starring THE ISLAND OF DR. MOREAU.

    Two boys lost all faith in cinema that day while somewhere in Peru... a man wanted to become a bigger man. Enjoy!

    1996 at the Movies: THE FAN

    1996 at the Movies: THE FAN

    Wesley Snipes vs. Robert De Niro in a movie that is not HEAT.
    It's also not SEVEN.

    Or even THE SANDLOT.

    It just stinks.

    And we'd rather be watching Tony Scott's THE HUNGER.

    But that also goes for every movie.

    Enjoy!

    1996 at the Movies: JACK

    1996 at the Movies: JACK

    Francis Ford Coppola apologized for the third GODFATHER with... JACK.
    And we never knew how good we had it with Sofia Coppola's acting until we saw a much beloved comedian facing impending death and impending baldness in a film now relegated to terrifying children on Disney Plus.

    But back in 1996 we were innocent. And then Bill Cosby walked onscreen as a mentor to a ten year old kid with the sexual desires of a forty year old.

    On that day we turned into men. Deviant men. Enjoy!
