 This week, Brendan and Jason discuss Ken Loach’s “bleaklifting” coming-of-age film – “Kes.” The guys discuss whether this is either the most depressing or uplifting film of all-time, talk at length about the wild gym class scene, talk about the “down-and-dirty” nature of most of the characters and much more. Plus: The guys roll […]

We think this one broke Brendan, folks. Mariah joins the guys to talk about the movie she bestowed upon them – “Madea’s Family Reunion.” They talk all about the second film in the TPCU (Tyler Perry Cinematic Universe) while covering everything from the film’s sudden, jarring shifts in tone, Uncle Joe being very inappropriate at […]

 Brendan and Jason talk about one of, if not the, most disturbing films of all time with Stanley Kubrick’s societal critique known as “A Clockwork Orange.” They talk about everything from the ultra-violence, the various instances of phallic symbology, some of the over-the-top satire, the use of music, Kubrick referencing some of his own […]

Tonight on a very special What Were They Thinking… It gets a little serious this week as a seemingly normal jokey conversation turns to a pretty in-depth discussion on political correctness and people being offended by stuff (don’t worry, it’s not a conversation just making fun of ‘snowflakes’ or whatever the new culture wants to […]

It’s already time to go all the way to the bottom of the list with #100 – The Killing Fields. Brendan and Jason talk all about the fascinating story behind casting non-actor Haing S. Ngor in a supporting role, they debate if the movie is “too Americanized,” early roles for John Malkovich and Craig T. […]

BLACK KNIGHTS! ASSEMBLE! Nathan and Brendan welcome special guest and Patron Extraordinnaire Erica as they break down the Fast and the Furious knock-off – 2003’s Biker Boyz. They discuss a number of crazy things like road skating, soft piano music being used as race music, Kid Rock as a time lord and much, much more. Plus: Nathan […]

This week, Brendan and Jason talk about how to build a bridge while you’re being tortured by the enemy with #11 on the BFI Top 100 – The Bridge on the River Kwai. They talk about Alec Guinness and Sessue Hayakawa’s intense tet-a-tet, they debate if Guinness has crossed the line or not, they question who […]

Onward and upward! Much like the previous mini-episode, this is another look at a year of film but rather than going back to talk about the best and worst of 2018, Nathan and Brendan instead discuss what they’re looking forward to the most and least from the upcoming year. They discuss sure-fire disasters like Sonic […]

This week, Brendan and Jason face a film which they had no prior knowledge of even its existence before settling down to watch and talk about it but alas, here it is – #83 on the list – 1965’s Darling. Join our hosts as they fall head over heels in love with Julie Christie, discuss […]

Beverly Hills! What a thrill! Nathan and Brendan delve into the next Patreon Pick (from Dannie) and discuss the late-80s Shelley Long vehicle – Troop Beverly Hills. From an in-depth conversation about how this may indeed be a TV movie, children giving illicit reading material to the elderly, lots of not-so-timeless dancing and some of the […]
