Breaking up is hard to do. But sometimes you just gotta RIP OFF THE BANDAID AND GET IT OVER WITH.
This week is a Patreon request by now-legendary movie picker Nathan Shinn, and guest what? He’s here to discuss it with us! Nathan stumbled upon a little mumblecore Netflix film called 6 Years, a movie that’s supposedly about domestic violence. Oh, it certainly has that, but…. yeah, you’ll just have to go ahead and listen, because it will take WAY more than a paragraph to try to explain this absurdity.
..okay, I was going to write the entire blurb as Ruby Rod, but I lack the energy to do so, as does every writer everywhere except Luc Besson. As you’ve probably guessed, this week we’re capping off our latest round of Patreon requests with the only-one-of-its-kind The Fifth Element! Furthermore, we’re joined by the Patreonsupporter who requested the film, returning guest Amanda Shinn!
We’ve talked briefly on this film before, but if any film deserves a expanding upon, it’s this one. So come on down, you’ve won exclusive tickets to hear us talk the craziest film we know!
Isn’t it so serene and.. what’s that about business fraud? Oh pffffft, nevermind that, just take in the sounds and the.. everyone in the country owns horses, right? That’s a totally normal thing? Oh, and Family is important. Family is important. DID WE MENTION FAMILY IS THE MOST IMPORTANT THING? What, you have dreams? SCREW THEM, FAMILY IS WORTH THE SACRIFICE.
That’s a brief scratch-the-surface tour of the movie Nathan chose for us this week. It’s such a spectacular failure. Come join us!
We kick off Season 4 of our podcast with a request for one of the greatest films ever made, The Godfather, as requested by Bridgett Shinn! We talk the film’s legendary staying power in the culture, and Al shares a piece of real local mob history. So come hear Austin and Al state their case as to why this film belongs in people’s film collections as a living film, and not as a museum exhibit on this, the cusp of their 3rd anniversary.
This week’s request was made by Patron Bridgett Shinn! She requested A Man Called Horse, a movie starring one of her favorite actors, Richard Harris! We had fun with this one, as it was the first (and certainly not last!) Western we’ve ever covered. We discuss what it means to be PC in the 70’s, as well as Harris’s long career, and what a feat of a movie this is.
As per Nathan’s suggestion, we did the cult hit (haha, we can’t type that with a straight face) Zapped Again! Zapped Again! is the long-awaited (again, straight face) sequel to the teen sex comedy Zapped! Hear us rip apart this *ahem* Classic to some heavily sampled beats!
Hello! This our first Patreon-only incentive episode! It’s a full episode that’s very special, because it serves as the 3-year-earlier prototype for what you are listening to… Read more “TFR: Episode Alpha”
So here’s the deal: we’re expanding, and we need your help to do it! Our basic goal is to have the cast be self-sustaining, but we have plans to do so much more than that! We have goals and rewards all lined up that will to make this cast more worthwhile for you, our listeners!
