Episode 59: I Will Eat Your Beef

0059 DislikeFor this week’s episode, dear listeners, we decided to discuss movies we just don’t get: films that seem to be almost universally adored, but, because of some personal defect deep within ourselves, we just don’t like. In other words, we sit around and complain about things other people tell us are good.

For this episode, we recommend that you join us in drinking, because that makes for better bitching. During this episode, we greatly enjoyed bottles of Line 39 Petit Syrah and Wrongo Dongo Red. Because, surely, we are probably a bit of wrongo dongo ourselves.

This Week’s Underappreciated Movies

Every Monday, each of us will suggest a film that we feel too few people have seen.

Melissa’s Pick of the Week: Short Term 12

I feel like Short Term 12 came and went without enough attention. It’s a quiet little drama, sure, but it’s one that hits every note well. Short Term 12 is the story of a young woman who works in a mental health treatment facility for kids and teens alongside her boyfriend. The film’s script is remarkable in that it treats every character with depth, and yet it handles the drama with a deft lightness. To match the script, the acting is honest and solid without being showy. This is not a drama that clubs you with sentimentality; instead, it welcomes you in.

Windy’s Pick of the Week: Smokin’ Aces

Joe Carnahan directs this mob-hit hot-mess of a movie. This is the type of movie that you might want to pre-game, but while it may not make a whole lot of sense – it is definitely one hell of a ride! Jeremy Piven (a favorite of mine) plays Vegas magician-turned-mafia snitch Buddy “Aces” Israel, and now the mob wants him out of the picture. A contract is put out, and a grab-bag of hit squads descend upon him and his FBI minders. The cast will surprise you, as will the batshit insane shenanigans. Turn off your brain, and turn up the volume.

Episode 58: Superposition Yeti

0058 HammerDear listeners, we have a great episode for you this week, because we nerd out about HAMMER FILMS with our erudite friend and author, Pat Harrigan! We traipse through the history of the famed British studio, mentioning favorite films and actors along the way.

And, as you can probably tell by our diction in this episode, we have had plenty of Cocobon Red Blend wine. You should, too!
