We’re sick. And when we’re sick, we watch dumb movies we love. Get ready for one of the most bafflingly enjoyable movies ever made.

Any parts that make it sound like we know what we’re talking about are cribbed from Chris Plante’s excellent article here:

Ep.7 The Silence of the Lambs (1991)

In this episode we mark the passing of legendary filmmaker Jonathan Demme. I’ll just come out and say it, this movie is a lot smarter than we are. Doesn’t stop us from loving the bejeezus out of it. We rarely say this, but if you haven’t seen this movie before you listen, please do. You’ll be glad you did.

The Duellists (1977)/This is not who we are.

In this intentionally lost episode (it’s not going into the podcast feed) we cover Ridley Scott’s first movie. We end up learning a lot about what kind of movies we should cover on the show. It’s not a good time. Good movie though..

Ep.6 Hudson Hawk (1991)

In our first request episode, we watch the bafflingly entertaining Hudson Hawk. We had way more fun with this one than we had any right to expect. You can check out Return of the Bruno here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=BiSTW3NSp6o

or don’t, I’m suggesting you don’t.

Ep.5 Beauty and the Beast (1991)

This time, on a very special Laser Discotheque Amelie and Levi make up for past mistakes.  Beauty and the Beast will make it all better.

Ep.4 Demolition Man (1993)

This time, we cover a weird-ass post-apocalyptic utopian taco commercial with our first ever guest: Symply Courtney. Together we celebrate a period in American cinema when Wesley Snipes was getting a level of work befitting full bore movie star. In many ways, it really was a better time.

Ep.3 Sabrina (1954) and Sabrina (1995)

Episode 3 is our Valentine’s Double Feature Spectacular. We’re watching two of our favorite romances ever. They just happen to be the same movie. Mostly. For further evidence of our Greg Kinnear theory, see Mystery Men. His back and forth with Geoffrey Rush is basically the only good part of that pile of disappointment. Eh, Bill Macy is pretty good.
