SPACE JAM REVIEW: 25 YEARS LATE
LexG riffs about coming to ‘90s kid “classic” “Space Jam” a quarter century late, and how the silly movies we watch as kids stick with us.
LEXG OFF-TOPIC MUSIC EPISODE: ROCK AND METAL 1982-1995
Nothing about sheen or movies in this one, so no hard feelings if it’s not for you. I talk about being a dork trying to rock out when I was already too old for it.
LEXG ON FILM TWITTER, ELAINE MAY, THE MALE GAZE, AND LIV TYLER
Freeform rant about various ways in which we process movies now versus my formative era.
SPIKE LEE LIGHTNING ROUND
I take you through the films of Spike Lee, from thematics to wardrobe to music to SHEEN to how his filmmaking evolved, interweaving stories of where I was in life and how they affected me.
SCHWARZENEGGER LIGHTNING ROUND
A little trip down memory lane as I discuss Arnold’s biggest hits of the ‘80s and ‘90s. Apologies to any “Junior” superfans — just genuinely forgot about it.

One of the best
One of the absolute best podcasts of its kind around. Completely unpretentious and just a joy to listen to. If you’re a guy who genuinely love movies and are of a certain age, you’re probably at least a little like Lex G and will enjoy this podcast.
Singular film coverage that brings insight without pretension and matches humor with personal resonance. No one in the 21st century has changed the language of film commentary more than LexG. Guaranteed no ZONE OUT.
I’ve never liked a movie podcast... until now
