40 – Live From A.O. Scott’s Lawn, It’s the Death of Adulthood

EPISODE_GRAPHIC

Oh, Say, Can You See? That They’re Talking About Kevin Smith Too?

This week, Katey’s gone AWOL, so it’s up to returning champion Matt Patches to set the tone for the show. Patches wants to talk about A.O. Scott’s New York Times essay on the death of adulthood (LINK), then he wants to discuss The Star-Spangled Banner in honor of it’s 200th anniversary. Then, in honor of Tusk, Kevin Smith’s new horror film that Patches has seen, it’s back to the Kevin Smith well to check in: what do we all think about the Askew View of this now Tusk and Red State filmmaker? That plus a lightning round question about confusing movies.

PREVIEW – What’s On TV This Fall?

REVIEW_GRAPHIC

Two Women and a Guy Talk Boob Tube. He’s The Boob.

This week, with David and Patches hogging all the good movies in Toronto, Katey Rich summons Da7e and Joanna to fill her in on what she needs to know about the Fall TV Season before she takes off on her honeymoon. Joanna is well educated on the new shows worth watching and has some good advice on watching Boardwalk Empire. Da7e is on hand to go over the three superhero shows making their debut and joins Katey in Black-ish curiosity. No one mentions Selfie.

39 – M-O-O-N: That Spells TIFF 2014

EPISODE_GRAPHIC

Randall Canadian Flagg

This week, Patches and David have decamped to the Toronto International Film Festival and bring us a Segment 3 report through droopy, tired eyes. Back in the War Room, Katey, Joanna and Da7e discuss Katey’s revisiting Stephen King’s The Stand and it’s troubled road to a film adaptation. Also, each of the three picks a young actor they wish would get to show more range. All that plus a pitiful Lighting Round question.

38 – A Subtly Enhanced Discussion Of Special Effects

EPISODE_GRAPHIC

Plus David Ehrlich’s Summer Trivia Corner

This week, David, Patches, Joanna and a returning Da7e have got that summertime sadness, oh-whoa-ho-ho-ho. Starting things off with a Lighting Round question about anticipated fall films, it’s a step back into the “worst summer since 1997″ for the American Box Office. Are things really that bad? Then, David’s in charge of a summer movie trivia mini-segment before we make a Johnny Gossamer connection between Pascale Ferran’s Bird People and Dawn of the Planet of the Apes. It’s subtle special effects and they’re a tool worth mentioning.
