    Episode 205: Chills, Thrills, & Animals w/ Antlers, Lamb, Old, and Pig Ft. Nick Delgadillo

    Hey film buds,We're continuing to examine the Movies We Missed in 2021. In this episode though we aren't looking at the major blockbusters, biopics, or awards contenders. We're reviewing and discussing the horror films, thrillers, and folktales. Joining Paul and Lauren is Friend of the Show, Nick Delgadillo, who included one of these four films on his Best of 2021 list.Antlers, our first film, is an interesting adaptation of a short story "The Quiet Boy", written by Nick Antosca. It is a film based in myth, given a modern twist. Similarly our second film, Lamb, is a Neo-folktale inspired by the classical folklore ideas from Iceland.The third film is another adaptation from the love-or-hate director M. Night Shyamalan, Old. The movie includes isolation, body horror, and much more, culminating in one of the more divisive films of the year.Last, starring the iconic character actor Nicolas Cage, is Pig, a movie about identity, loss, and love. The film is a slow boil thriller that is also interested in answering the question: what does food mean to us?Rounding out the discussion, we talk about What We're Watching, Nick's Awards Season Opinion, and more.

    Episode 204: Being the Ricardos, Last Night in Soho, & The French Dispatch

    Episode 204: Being the Ricardos, Last Night in Soho, & The French Dispatch

    Hey film buds,Beyond reviewing the Movies We Missed in 2021, we are also examining specific idea per episode. Today, we're looking at Period Films depicting stories from the 20th Century, across different genres from multiple directors. We are looking at three films crossing three decades.First, we are talking about Being the Ricardos from Aaron Sorkin; a biopic on Lucille Ball and Desi Arnaz in the fifties. Second is Edgar Wright's horror film Last Night in Soho, depicting the Swinging Sixties. We finish off our discussion with Wes Anderson's most recent film, and ode to journalists, The French Dispatch.Each film had a dedicated team of people to help establish a sense of time period, and we want to answer the question "How does a film create historic periods accurately?" We also praise the Creative Teams that achieved it, talk about What We're Watching, and more.We also have episode on Wes Anderson's The Life Aquatic With Steve Zissou, The Royal Tenenbaums, and Edgar Wright's Baby Driver, Shaun of the Dead, and Hot Fuzz.Also, be sure to check out last week's episode.Thanks y'all,The BudsPS This episode is dedicated to Amun Ra, and all the lost petsEpisode GuideQuentin Tarantino Clip - 00:00Intro - 00:39Being the Ricardos Clip - 19:45Being the Ricardos Review - 20:41Last Night in Soho Clip - 55:49Last Night in Soho Review - 56:44The French Dispatch Clip - 01:29:39The French Dispatch Review - 01:30:22The Creative Teams of the Movies, What We’ve Been Watching and Playing, and Outro - 02:06:53Total Runtime - 02:19:55Be a Friend to the Film Buds:* thefilmbuds.com* thefilmbudspodcast@gmail.

    Episode 203: The Last Duel and Benedetta

    Episode 203: The Last Duel and Benedetta

    Hey film buds, We're continuing this week to review as many of the movies of 2021 that we missed last year. Of which, there are many. For this episode we're looking at how two very different, but very distinct, directors handle history. Our first film this week is Ridley Scott's The Last Duel, written by Matt Damon, Ben Affleck, and Nicole Holofcener. The movie is a gritty tale about male ego, pride, ownership, perception, and the consequences of action. Ridley is a meticulous director, and this film is no exception. Second, we're looking at Paul Verhoeven's Benedetta. Verhoeven is known for his dramatic, intense, and sometimes unsubtle satirist most known for his modern and sci-fi features. With Benedetta, he takes the story of a real life nun and uses it for inspiration for a slightly different take on history. Joining us for the conversation is friend of the show, Madelaine, who was incredibly insightful and a joy to have back on. Be sure to also check out our episodes on Showgirls and Tampopo. And if you haven't already, check out last week's episode. You can find Madelaine @MadelaineD_ on Twitter and @madelained_ on Instagram. Also, check out Taking an Accurate Sexual History here.Thanks y'all, The BudsEpisode GuideIntro - 00:00The Last Duel Clip - 10:06The Last Duel Review - 10:43Benedetta Clip - 38:46Benedetta Review - 39:21SAG Nominations, Golden Globe Winners, BAFTA Long List Nominations, What We’re Watching, and Outro - 01:16:57Total Runtime - 01:40:42Be a Friend to the Film Buds:* thefilmbuds.com* thefilmbudspodcast@gmail.com* patreon.com/thebuds* thefilmbuds.bandcamp.com* @filmbuds on Twitter* @thefilmbudspodcast on Instagram

Highlight of My Week

Came across these guys recently, and I am now a hardcore buddy. If you like in-depth movie discussions, or just want to hang out with some cool friends, The Film Buds is a perfect choice. I am going through some of the earlier years where there were various co-hosts and guests; but Henry and Paul are my top dogs without a doubt. Pick any episode and you’ll see what I mean!
