40: Planes, Trains and Automobiles (1987, John Hughes)

November 23rd, 2018

Just in time to kick off the holidays, we're joined by another former co-worker, Jason Swoboda, to talk about PLANES, TRAINS AND AUTOMOBILES. Shockingly, this happens to be a first-time watch for both C.J. and Cesar.

39: The Wailing (2016, Hong-jin Na)

October 31st, 2018

For Halloween this year, we chose THE WAILING, a terrifying South Korean thriller from director Hong-jin Na. Being a first-time watch for both of us, much of the discussion is spent trying to work out our own feelings on this ambiguous story of a mysterious disease plaguing a small village, the cause of which may be supernatural.

37: Predator (1987, John McTiernan)

October 17th, 2018

We're looking forward to Shane Black's THE PREDATOR, so we decided to go back to the 1987 original for Episode 37. Our love of this film shines through with every minute of discussion, including a few terrible Schwarzenegger impressions.

35: Charade (1963, Stanley Donen)

September 10th, 2018

We haven't done a sixties movie since our first episode on THE HUSTLER; so, we're going back to that decade to discuss Stanley Donen's CHARADE, a movie that features two of the biggest stars of the fading Hollywood studio system: Cary Grant and Audrey Hepburn.

33: Ghostbusters (1984, Ivan Reitman)

August 6th, 2018

After a 30-day haitus for summer vacation, we're back to prove that we ain't afraid of no ghosts! This week, Cesar and C.J. are joined by Chelsea Dove and the biggest GHOSTBUSTERS fan we know, friend and former video store co-worker Jordan Smith.

32: The Naked Spur (1953, Anthony Mann)

July 2nd, 2018

This week's movie was picked for us by an old friend from the video store days, Nik Pollutra. Nik's a hard-core fan of classics, especially Westerns, and we're thrilled that he was able to join us for a discussion of Anthony Mann's THE NAKED SPUR. "Spur" was one of Mann's many collaborations with James Stewart, and is one of the best examples of the darker, psychological westerns of the 1950's.
