men_in_black_international-publicity_still_9-h_2019

Men in Black: International has us both forgetting everything that happened in it and proud of ourselves for not once saying we were Neuralyzed by it as we use it as a catalyst for a discussion of two 50 year-old action heroes, another 50 year-old action hero, and another 50 year-old action hero. Yes… Another one!

Does Lethal Weapon 4 have more genuine character moments than action? Was Live Free or Die Hard oddly prophetic? And how, exactly, would Harry’s day be made in Sudden Impact? All this and more on Men in Black: International, Franchise Fourths, and The New Times…

jigglypuff-meme

Detective Pikachu has us regretting our choice to watch movies about video games as we discuss co-opted 80s culture, a non-sensical dystopian future, and a 90 minute commercial.

Are the first 20 minutes of Pixels actually funny? Are the games actually games in Gamer? And does anybody actually know how to hook up a Nintendo in The Wizard? All this and more on Detective Pikachu, Video Games, and the Barbarian…

More Feline Films… And More Whiskey

sleepBrad and Kevin keep talking Feline Films on this bonus episode, specifically about why nobody should root for Garfield in Garfield, about how the song “Sleepwalk” might relate to the title of the film in which it appears (Sleepwalkers), why we should still respect Fritz the Cat despite its dated, juvenile attempt to be hip and progressive, and about how much Kevin likes whiskey…

Pet Sematary, Felines, and the Pope of Racism

screen-shot-2019-01-17-at-2.26.06-pmThe Pet Sematary remake has us ruminating on some notorious cinematic kitties as we discuss overbearing fathers, creepy “hairy men,” and the generically named cat of an unbearable socialite.

Does Pet Sematary need to exist? Is Meet the the Parents one of the ten best comedies of this century? Is The Cat in the Hat a misunderstood comic masterpiece? And does Breakfast at Tiffany’s deserve its status as a classic? All this and more on Pet Sematary, Felines, and the Pope of Racism…

fear

Brad and Kevin keep talking Obsession movies on this bonus episode, specifically about why The Cable Guy doesn’t get more respect, why the characters in Fear are so nonchalant about domestic violence, and why Rosario Dawson actually turned in a real performance in the theatrical Lifetime movie, Unforgettable…

Greta, Obsession, and the Ten Point Scale

Greta1

Neil Jordan’s Greta sets up a discussion of spurned lovers, terrible fans, and dangerous cops as we discuss Obsession Movies, focusing on the genre defining Fatal Attraction, the DeNiro phone-in, The Fan, and the underrated gem, Unlawful Entry.

Is Isabelle Huppert’s performance wasted in Greta? Is The Fan one of Robert DeNiro’s worst performances? Is Fatal Attraction obscenely miscast? And is Unlawful Entry more than pure pulp fun? All this and more on Greta, Obsession, and the Ten Point Scale…
