    The Keep / The Relic / Cafe Express

    The Keep / The Relic / Cafe Express

    Roger & Quentin travel deep into Bavaria to unlock Michael Mann’s The Keep! Originally running at 210 minutes, Mann’s second film was notoriously cut down to half that length. Your hosts discuss their excitement at the time for Mann’s rise as a director, his influence on future filmmakers, and where it all went wrong.

    Next, join us at the museum as we dig into Peter Hyams’ 1997 film The Relic! A monster movie mystery, Quentin & Roger pick apart the lore of the film and discuss if rules really matter when you’re having fun. This movie picks up in the third act, and you’ll have to come along for the ride to see how it ends. Lastly, fill up a cup of Joe and board the Cafe Express, a charming 80s Italian comedy starring Nino Manfredi. Be ready to laugh, be ready to cry, and be ready to fight against Italian bureaucracy, one cup of coffee at a time.

    Moonraker / Firefox / Delirium

    Moonraker / Firefox / Delirium

    Blast off to outer space with Roger and Quentin as they go toe to toe on Moonraker! Heavily influenced by the science fiction craze in the wake of Star Wars, Moonraker is one of the most polarizing Bond films of all time. Pick a side as Roger and Quentin debate Bond villains that hit too close to home, baddies that turn into goodies, and Roger Moore’s Bond.

    Next, we’ll return to Earth with Clint Eastwood’s 1982 film Firefox. The Soviets have developed a new jet fighter called Firefox, and only one man is up for the job of stealing the plane before it’s used as a first strike weapon. Quentin and Roger think in Russian as they talk about fantastic use of exposition, the bankrupting of Russia, and how PTSD is used to shape character and story. And just as a treat, they’ll wrap up with a spoiler-free discussion of Peter Maris’s 1979 film Delirium. Trust us, you won’t want to look up this film before you watch it!

    Dark Star / Cocaine Cowboys

    Dark Star / Cocaine Cowboys

    Join Roger and Quentin as they revisit one of Roger’s favorite films, the 1974 cult classic Dark Star! Originally created by John Carpenter and Dan O’Bannon as a student film, buckle up for a ride amongst the stars as we follow a group of scientists on a mission to destroy unstable stellar bodies. Quentin and Roger discuss changing opinions from opening day, the impact the film had on future movies in the genre, and a beach ball alien.

    Next, we’ll return to 1979 with Ulli Lommel’s cult film Cocaine Cowboys. A rock band is on the brink of superstardom, and all that stands in the way is a lost bag of cocaine worth two million dollars. Starring Jack Palance, Tom Sullivan, Suzanna Love, and…Andy Warhol? Quentin and Roger reveal the truth behind the scenes, Andy Warhol’s influences, a Pierre Trudeau connection, and how this true story made it onto the big screen.
