Episode 29 – Oldboy


This fortnight, we are back with another movie to read!  This time, it’s Chan-wook Park’s 2003 Korean revenge thriller, Oldboy.  Jo suggested we discuss this film, so she comes back for the second straight show.  We are so glad she returned!

Oldboy gave us a lot to talk about.  We discuss revenge, justice, and guilt.  Is the protagonist a world-class villain, and is the protagonist really the antagonist?  Because this is fiction, we have fun with all these aspects.  As of June 2020, there are many free options to watch this wonderful film.  Take advantage and come and join us!

Episode 28 – The Discreet Charm of the Bourgeoisie


This week, french surrealism is on the menu, We sink our teeth into Luis Bunuel’s 1972 french surrealist comedy masterpiece, The Discreet Charm of the Bourgeoisie.

We are joined this week by Jo, a friendly ghost from MTN’s past to help us wade through the often ephemeral storylines, and persistently opaque meanings of this dense, playful dream world. No matter your experience or feelings towards art films, you will likely find a shared perspective within this episode.

Episode 26 – Con Air vs. The Rock


We are delighted to have Sara Netzley, (@SaraNetzley on Twitter) journalism professor by day and TV reviewer by night to discuss Nic Cage in back-to-back roles in 1996 and 1997.  Historically, our versus series asks which movie we love more knowing we really like them both.  Tonight, the rules have changed.  There are haters on both sides.  Dr. Netzley’s topic brought the heat.

On our latest episode, we travel back to 1980 to discuss the first film adapted from a Saturday Night Live skit, the Blues Brothers.  Fueled by hi-jinx, car chases, copious amounts of cocaine, and superstars from both music and film; we ask if this film passes the test of time.  We are joined by serial podcast guest, Carmelita (@CarmelitaSays)

Episode 22 – Clueless


 This week, we transition from Clue to Clueless.  It’s for our own amusement.  😉

Clueless was a popular film.  Released in 1995, it’s full of style, great clapback insults, and Dan Hedaya!  We ask questions about about the Josh-Cher age difference and how it goes largely ignored.  Does this translate to a high letter grade?
