Informed film discussion for the unrefined connoisseur.
Assassin 33 AD
Finally, a movie that answers the tough questions...
What if terrorist got hold of a time machine and used it to try and assassinate Jesus, prevent the resurrection by bringing his body to the present, thereby erasing Christianity from history? What if the only people who can stop that from happening are a group of scientists that accidentally discovered time travel in less than a month? Can you still get away with an African American character who is essentially a collection of outdated stereotypes.
These and many more questions are answered in this episode as we look at Assassins 33 AD.
The Quiet Man
Thanks to a Patreon request, we finally take a look at possibly the Irish American film. John Ford's, "The Quiet Man," with John Wayne and Maureen O'Hara.
It's funny how much a little bit of introspection can change how you relate with a movie. Seeing the... Irishness of it all is... well, you kinda have to listen.
There are few movies as criminally overlooked and underrated as "Big Night." It's just a minor indie movie from the mid 90's, but it might be flashpoint for modern foodie culture.
All that nonsense aside... its just a good movie.
The Initiates: Nathan Dies Hard
Well, sometimes the last minute is kind of awesome. The stars aligned and we were finally able to introduce Nathan to Die Hard. That's right, you are about to hear from someone who had never seen Die Hard before, and we release it on the 31st anniversary of The Battle of Nakatomi Tower.
Saving Christmas 2019
It's the holidays, which can only mean one thing... time to subject someone to this "movie." Join us as we blindside the absolute shit out of Clarkson's friend Andrew.
Tone deaf, or just deaf deaf. We watched the Death Wish remake so you don't have to.
Not what I anticipated!
I found this podcast on accident while searching for interviews with Matt Stone and Trey Parker, but I thoroughly enjoyed the ride. From their morning Zoo Crew soundboard to their set in stone opinions, the Film Thugs have a very refreshing podcast. Although some of their anecdotes will appear to trail off into incoherent ramblings, the guys have an innate ability to make Captain Sully esque landings while tying in their personal experiences to the topic at hand. I have only listened to a few of their episodes, but I am honestly looking forward to the subsequent chapters!
Fun when not distracted by one of the host’s relentless yawning, during his own podcast. Or distracted by them dissing many of your favorite movies.
Life Masters is my favorite
Their newest edition to the podcast, Life Masters, is my favorite. I think its a fun change of pace from their usual film topics and mixes it up a bit.
