Episode 50 – The Sting

This episode we also ask: “Two for Paul Newman?”  Don’t worry, we’ll explain.  It’s been a long time between episodes.  Our apologies for seeming like we were on hiatus. For Episode 50, we chose the granddaddy of con man films, George Roy Hill’s, The Sting.  Lead by Paul Newman, Robert…

Episode 49 – Point Break vs. Speed

After multiple attempts by Roy to shoehorn 1991's 'Point Break' vs. Ben Affleck's, 'The Town,' into one of our shows, HBO gives him the ultimate assist by playing 'Point Break' and 1994's 'Speed' back-to-back one Saturday night.  Since our 'Starship Troopers' vs. 'Robocop' episode, we don't dare spell action anymore…

Episode 45 – Big vs. 13 Going on 30

Your wish is granted.  Our professor of fun, Sara Netzley, is back to discuss which one is at least slightly better: Big or 13 Going on 30.  Big was released in 1988, which puts Roy and Sean at the same age of Josh Baskin.  Will this and the humor of…

Episode 44 – This is Spinal Tap vs. Best in Show

You Guest it, this is a cage match between two all-time great mockumentary films.  This is Spinal Tap is a documentary about the band’s American comeback tour that starts badly and builds momentum to what could be the band’s undoing.  Best in Show follows several dog owners as they prepare…

Episode 43 – Predator

Predator was released on June 12, 1987, and Roy has been in love with this film since day one of its release.  Is this another occurrence of what Sean calls being mugged by nostalgia?  We unpack this and other discussions and disagreements over the quality of this sci-fi action masterpiece.…
