150 – Movies that Represent What We Want for America

flag

It's only as political as it needs to be.

It's our sixth Quell as Fighting in The War Room! After polling listeners for Quarter Quell topics, the crew ends up selecting a winner, then tweakign the wording a bit. What they're left with is a prompt to bring movies that represent what they want to see in America. Da7e brings Mr. Smith Goes To Washington for basically the reasons you'd assume, Katey looks back to Juno and a suburbia full of characters, Patches justifies why he selected Michael Haneke's Caché, and David picks a full-length dance movie with Girl Walk All Day.

125 – Movies We Want To Show (Our) Children

125banner

It's our fifth Quell as Fighting in The War Room, and one of us is super pregnant. With Katey Rich's due date passed, each host picks a movie that they would pass on to the next generation, even if that generation isn't biologically theirs. We go in the order of "most likely to have children in wedlock" starting with pregnant Katey and The Music Man, moving to Matt Patches and Searching For Bobby Fischer, then to David Ehrlich for The World of Tomorrow and finally for Da7e who chose Kung Fu Panda.

The Significant Other Full Quell – Episode 100 Re-Release

Each Host Replaced By The Person Who Puts Up With Them

It’s our fourth Quell as Fighting in The War Room (and our 2nd 100th episode as a foursome), and we’ve all stopped going it alone. It’s time to meet the significant others, the people who have put up with us podcasting multiple times a week for years and years. David’s fiancé Elisa says David’s not trolling you, Katey’s husband Michael would sometimes rather watch House Hunters, Matt Patches’ better half Michelle proves to be the saner party and Da7e’s girlfriend Java has things to say about Jane Austen adaptations.

Movies We Wanted To Be When We Grew Up – Episode 75 Re-Release

Each Host Brings A Film That Influenced Who They Are

It’s our third Quell as Fighting in The War Room, and we’re getting all nostalgic again. Katey, Da7e, David and Patches have each brought a film that they wanted to be when they grew up. Katey always wanted to be Marty McFly from Back to the Future, Da7e wishes he were Penny Marshall’s Big, David sees himself in James L. Brooks’ Broadcast News and Patches, perhaps predictably, chooses earnest love-of-teaching-music movie Mr. Holland’s Opus.
