Jim and Teal riff on movies, and the film-going experience. This podcast contains reviews of films, new and old, stories of seeing movies in the theater, and a focus on hidden-gem, specialty, or art films. It's a different show every episode.
What a Feeling! Stuff We've Seen Goes Video
This week marks a new chapter for Stuff We've Seen. Jim and Teal are still behind the mic, but this week they stepped in front of the camera for their first ever video podcast. Now, you are listening to the audio version, but if you want to catch the video all you need to do is go to their website Stuff We've Seen and you'll find it there.
This week Jim and Teal discuss Booksmart (which Teal finally caught up with,) Plan B, and then Jim takes a walk down 80s lane with a rewatch of Flashdance. What a feeling! You can now finally have it all with Jim and Teal on video.
Six Underground: Jim and Teal Take on Michael Bay
For Jim and Teal's third Netflix teleparty they decided to break down the bombastic, mean-spirited, over-corporatized action clunker, Six Underground. If you want lots of quick cuts, slow-mo's, blaring rock tunes, and insipid dialogue you get Michael Bay to direct. And if you think you are going to cash in on the meta-violent action fun of Deadpool you hire the Deadpool screenwriters and star Ryan Reynolds.
If you're curious about this movie, and we know you are, why not watch it the way it was meant to be watched, with Jim and Teal? Simply press play on Netflix at the same time Jim and Teal tell you to on the podcast and then listen along as they tear this film a new one. But guess what? You might just have a blast, and that is what Jim and Teal found out. It's fun to grab a pal and make fun of a $200 million dollar Netflix movie.
So go get streaming, young film enthusiast. You deserve some yuks.
Army of the Dead
James and Teal are back in action, and action was the name of the game this episode as they discussed Zack Snyder's Army of the Dead (now streaming on Netflix.)
This week J&T pay homage to the great Charles Grodin who passed away at 86. From The Heartbreak Kid, to Seems Like Old Times, and Midnight Run, Grodin played a role in many a movie memory for our fearless duo.
And Teal has a bit of a mini Marvel rant that should entertain.
Lots more in store, but you'll have to listen to find out.
What Happened Was...A Fantastic Trip to the Indie 90s
What Happened Was... from 1994 is that hidden indie gem from the 1990s is that is worth a rediscovery. This week on Stuff We've Seen, Jim and guest co-host, Bill from Queens discuss Writer/Director/Star Tom Noonan's 2-character bottle movie with a breakout performance by actress Karen Sillas. Both Jim and Bill agree that Sillas' performance is one of the best of the 1990s.
Along with this discussion Jim and Bill do some Hopkins and Nolte impressions, and dive into the gambling underbelly with Robert Altman's California Split.
93rd Academy Awards Oscar Wrap Up
If Billy Crystal were singing it's a good bet he wasn't singing, 'It's a Wonderful Night for Oscar,' after Sunday night's bizarre pandemic-limited ceremony. So many blunders occurred that night, that hate it or just not willing to say you hated it, the Academy Awards could not overcome a year in which many big Hollywood films never released, and the typical yuks and attempts at comedy were sidelined.
What did we get instead? A whole lot of long, long, speeches, and very little in the way of entertainment. But what about the awards themselves? Jim and Teal have the entire breakdown, and the majority of this episode is devoted to discussing the Academy Awards for the last time until...next week? Are the 2022 Oscars next week? It feels like it should be time to start that train up again. Kidding. But only slightly.
What else? Stay through the entire episode to catch Teal's take on the Bob Odenkirk-starring action-genre film, Nobody. Jim mentioned last week he loved it. But what does Teal think? You'll have to listen to find out.
Cinerama Dome Memories: Jim and Teal Look Back at a Theater Icon.
The Cinerama Dome is no more. Well, at least for the moment it is no more, and Jim and Teal certainly hope there are more film screenings in its future. But for now, The Cineramadome is shuttered.
Jim and Teal take a fond look back at the Cinerama Dome and their own personal histories seeing movies in the fabled Hollywood film palace where widescreen movies once reigned supreme.
This week Jim and Teal take one final peak at some Oscar nominated films with their reviews of The Father, and Another Round. Jim talked about Another Round with Bill from Queens a couple of episodes ago, but now Teal's caught up with it, and has a few things to say.
Is The Father worth all the hubbub? Jim and Teal have a slight disagreement with one enjoying it a lot more than the other. Which one found issues with the way it was filmed? It's time to listen in and find out.
Jim & Teal are great. Lots of levity. Lots of knowledge. I think these guys have literally seen EVERYTHING! Two great guys having fun talking about movies. Love it.
Great film discussion!
Two white guys doing a podcast about movies... but this time it’s good!
