This time on Laser Discotheque we watch Cutthroat Island, the movie that took pirates out of the multiplex for nearly a decade. Renny Harlin throws good money after bad on an astounding scale, and after we had so much fun with Die Harder, too. Guess they can’t all be Captain Blood.

Ep. 9 Big Night (1998)

Today, we watch a perfect movie. If you’ve never seen it, Big Night is the kind of food movie that understands when adding one ingredient more would ruin the dish. Watch this move.. and then listen to our show. But mostly, watch this movie.

Ep.8 Street Fighter (1994)

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.
