199 – Sundance 2018, Una mujer fantástica, Call Me By Your Name for everybody

landscape-1505307489-call-me-by-your-name

This week, David is back from Park City and not on Ambien this time, so we revisit his experiences at Sundance 2018 and try to find out if this was a down or off year for the festival, or just the perception. Then, Patches and David have seen Foriegn Oscar Nom Una mujer fantástica and talk about why you should see it! Finally – Dave has seen Call Me By Your Name! It only took a year since the movie's premiere, but Dave made the time to see it…why isn't the rest of America?

 

Also, we are asking for you, the listener, to help us program our upcoming Quarter Quell! We want you to pick a movie that is on Netflix for each of us to watch that we might not otherwise choose–maybe because we're terrified of horror, maybe because we don't want enough inernational films, whatever. Pick a movie that would actually be interesting to discuss or see– sorry, A Christmas Prince– and tweet at us or post on Facebook with your picks. Each of us will be assigned a fiml that is brand-new to us to watch, and we'll discuss it on the upcoming Quarter Quell, with a thank-you to whoever picked it!

133 – Amazon’s The Tick with Returning Guest Griffin Newman!

the-tick-pilot-griffin-newman

This week, Joanna is mysteriously gone as Patches, David and Da7e wrap up the summer. Starting off with a discussion about a series of tweets about original summer movies from author Mark Harris and transitioning into a short list of Summer Superlatives (like the best performance). Then, since he’s basically the star of Amazon’s The Tick pilot (where he plays Arthur the sidekick), we thought it’d be great to have Griffin Newman back on the show (he was on Episode 19 back when Draft Day was out). The guys probe Griffin to get the EXCLUSIVE on his history with ticks, then some really cool information on how he ended up in this version of The Tick.
