  • Episode 128 – Mad Max: Fury Road
    by Tim on March 15, 2019 at 14:00

    For the second time, we are watching a Max Max movie! This time it’s Mad Max: Fury Road. In what is essentially one super long car chase, we get to watch Charlize Theron be a bad ass and a blind guy play a flame throwing guitar. It’s pretty great. Alee Baker joins us as a … […]

  • Episode 127 – The Great Race
    by Tim on March 4, 2019 at 22:10

    We followed Peter Paul from The Princess Bride to this farce by Blake Edwards. The Great Race stars Falk, Natalie Wood, Tony Curtis, Jack Lemmon, and Keenan Wynn as they race across the world. Along the way, they get into a bar fight, escape a polar bear, and meet up with another version of Jack […]

  • Confessions of a Diet Pill Junkie
    by Melissa on January 28, 2019 at 19:21

    Hi. I’m Melissa. I have phentermine in my veins right now. Phentermine is a controlled substance in the USA. It is available through a doctor’s prescription, which is how I have it. It is a substituted amphetamine, and acts very similar to amphetamine in the human body. It suppresses […]

  • Episode 126 – The Princess Bride
    by Tim on January 15, 2019 at 15:00

    OK, we finally get to watch The Princess Bride! As one might expect, it was a challenge to find someone who hadn’t seen the movie but with a little work, we found Megan Ealain, who agreed to join us and watch the movie for the first time! If you’ve never seen this 1980’s […]

  • Episode 125 – F for Fake
    by Tim on January 8, 2019 at 15:40

    Our latest episode was a bit of a last minute audible as we lost a guest due to weather. So Tim became our guinea pig to watch F for Fake, a “documentary” about hoaxes by Orson Welles. This kind of wacky film takes a look at a few different fakers, including the filmmaker himself. It […]

  • Episode 124 – This is Spinal Tap
    by Tim on December 3, 2018 at 22:08

    We are sticking with comedy for just a bit longer as we watch the classic heavy metal mockumentary, This is Spinal Tap! Christopher Guest, Michael McKean, and Harry Shearer play the members of a rock band whose popularity is on something of a downward slide. Rob Reiner is the director of a film […]

  • Episode 123 – Clue
    by Tim on November 15, 2018 at 15:00

    This episode, we take a look at the best film ever based on a board game (and it isn’t close) – Clue! The movie has a stellar comedic cast and while it was something of a box office failure, it has become a huge success on home video.  Tom S Tea joins us to watch … Continue […]

  • Episode 122 – Young Frankenstein
    by Tim on November 1, 2018 at 14:00

    Just in time for the day after Halloween! We finish off our trip through the films that are arguably Mel Brooks’ best with Young Frankenstein! This satirical homage to the classic Universal horror movies (but especially Frankenstein and Bride of Frankenstein) may be one of Brooks’ least […]

  • Episode 121 – Blazing Saddles
    by Tim on October 15, 2018 at 20:55

    Our Mel Brooks series continues with his parody of the Western Genre – Blazing Saddles! Alison Anderson joins us for her first viewing of a film that took on racism head on in the 1970’s. When it comes to addressing racism, the film still really does a good job. When it comes […]

  • 50 Days Without Facebook: Day 1
    by Melissa on October 12, 2018 at 16:02

    I did it. I finally did it. I deleted Facebook on my phone. I logged out from my computers. I announced on my account that I’d be elsewhere online until December. I am tired of reading Facebook as a reflex. I am tired of wondering where my time went. I … Continue reading The post 50 […]

  • Episode 120 – The Producers (2005)

    Having just watched The Producers (1967) by Mel Brooks, we follow up by watching The Producers (2005) by Mel Brooks! This musical adaptation of the original film that was not quite a musical once again features “Springtime for Hitler” but it also has a whole lot of other songs […]

  • Episode 119 – The Producers (1967)
    by Tim on September 1, 2018 at 14:00

    This week, we begin working through a series of films by Mel Brooks. We start with our look at his first film, a movie Roger Ebert called “one of the funniest films ever made,” The Producers (1967)! Barb Lind joins us to discuss this film that dares to take on Hitler with comedy. Zero […]

  • Episode 118 – Schindler’s List
    by Tim on August 15, 2018 at 14:00

    For a podcast that tries to blend movie education with comedy – this episode creates a bit of a puzzler. We are watching Schindler’s List. Steven Spielberg’s undisputed masterpiece about the holocaust as seen through the eyes of a man who tried to prevent a tiny part of it is a […]

  • Episode 117 – Jurassic Park
    by Tim on August 1, 2018 at 14:00

    This week’s theme is DINOSAURS! We bring new viewer Stephan Zvan to watch Jurassic Park with our friend and Dinosaur Expert, Matt Kessen. Spielberg’s most successful movie gets the Reel Education treatment as we consider the parts that have aged extremely well (the special effects) and […]

  • Episode 116 – Ocean’s Eleven
    by Tim on July 16, 2018 at 20:34

    This week, we are joined by Heather Rand-McKay to watch Ocean’s Eleven (2001)! But she isn’t our only special guest. Patricia Wick joins us in the movie expert chair! We do take some time to talk about the original Ocean’s 11 (1960) and do our best to discourage anyone who wishes […]

    by Tim on July 1, 2018 at 23:11

    Our latest episode takes a look at Michael Crichton’s Westworld. Tim’s son Alex joins us for this movie about a futuristic theme park where nothing could possibly go wrong but, due to exceptionally bad design flaws, things do! Yul Brynner stars as a gunslinger who seems to have tired of […]

    by Tim on June 15, 2018 at 14:00

    We’ve been promising this movie for a while and finally it is time for us to watch The Big Lebowski! Breanna Cecile joins us to watch this film she compares to John Steinbeck’s ‘The Pearl,” which may be about the most intelligent observation made by any guest on our podcast […]

  • Episode 113 – The Omen
    by Tim on June 1, 2018 at 14:00

    We had a bit of an unintentional hiatus there because Melissa and Tim had a heck of a time coordinating schedules. We’re back and we are watching The Omen with guest Kyle Dekker. Tim also hasn’t seen the film so we have two newbies with a film Melissa watched on nearly constant loop […]

    by Melissa on April 21, 2018 at 14:00

    For this week’s episode, we watch a very early Robert Wise film, The Set-Up! We highly recommend you watch the film before listening to the episode, because the episode is full of spoilers. The film is available on streaming on iTunes, Vudu, Google Play, and YouTube. If you want to read the […]
