Episode 365: Valentine's Opportunities

Another February is here, meaning another day of Valentine's love is in the wings!  And if Mikey, Dave, and #TwitterlessDrEarl aren't enough, Friend of the Show Jennifer "Juniper" Kaufman joins the show to add a softer voice and a girls touch to the topic itself.


First up, Birthday Movies to talk about what was released in February five, ten, fifteen, twenty years ago -- movies like The Lego Movie, Office Space, Bill & Ted's Excellent Adventure, and even a fave of Friend of the Show Burgess, The Jonas Brothers 3D Concert Experience!

A quick round of the IMDb game -- can you name the actor and/or actress by the roles and movies?  Great match!

Friend of the Show, Miss Independent himself Burgess calls in from his 24th film festival in 2019 over in Mississippi, to give his results of this year's Burgentine's Day -- he reviews the movies assigned to him by the crew.

The topic in the episode is not just Valentine's movies, but those movies that are bad -- not just guilty pleasures, but Rom Com Chick Flicks that the crew feels like they may be the only ones to actually like. Movies with John Cusack... Brenden Fraser in a bomb shelter... Dave's novelization attempts... Beth Cooper makes an appearance... that Bonnie Raitt song movie... Kaufman's love of Jennifer Anniston.. Dr Earl's love of 90's Jennifer Connelly... Mikey's love of Michael J Fox...  Dave's love of large ensemble flicks... and so much more love in the episode!

Episode 364: The Best Best Picture Winners

Oscar nominations are out!  Mikey, Dave, and #TwitterlessDrEarl spend an hour full of Oscar talk... and the fun thing is that when the recording of this episode happens, nominations aren't out yet.


So the guys get to make bold predictions on Oscar noms that have already happened now.  Who swings and misses wildly?  Who calls an Animated nom?  And who was the genius who called the Bradley Cooper snub and only 7 nominations for Star is Born??

Dr Earl also pontificates on a recent viewing of M. Night's sophomore effort "Unbreakable" (of which the recent "Glass" is a sequel to), a re-watch after about 12 or 15 years.

Then the Denzel game makes a stirring comeback, with shout outs to Mila Kunis, James Franco, and Mikey's Boo K-Cost, and who could forget Chuckles the Ape...

The top five this go-round takes a look at all the Academy Award Best Picture winners, including a look at the Godfather, the life-ness of Talia Shire, and what is the Good Dinosaur of Mobster movies... a rundown of the other movies that didn't win in the same year of the movies selected... some hot Sidney Poitier talk... the importance of Titanic in Dave's life...

Episode 363: Movie Surprises of 2018

Another 2018 in review episode commences, all leading up to the Top Ten of 2018 (coming soon!), but this around, its the Movie Surprises of 2018.
Mikey, Dave, and Alison Brie Larsen Lover #TwitterlessDrEarl welcome in Mr Independent himself, Friend of the Show Jeremy Burgess to talk all about a little of everything.

Kicking in first with a review of Burgess' IMDb page and some random up and coming actors in the area, including the infamous Daniel Scheinert (who??), an untitled project that Burgess may or may not have let slip (what??) and a rousing round of Rotten Tomatoes Potpourri... one that lasts a long time because four people playing to five can sometimes take a while.

Then, the crew jumps into the topic at hand, the movies in 2018 that surprised everyone -- didn't think they'd enjoy but sat back and thought "Well whaddya know, that was pretty entertaining..."

Movies like Hotel Artemis... Aquaman... more Nic Cage... The Heartbreak Kid Mr. Wrestlemania The Showstopper HBK Shawn Michaels... and even some Venom Venom... Venom Venom Venom....  

Wednesday, January 23, 2019

Some of the topics discussed along the way... could Anthony Hopkins be overrated?  The Curiosity of Eddie Redmayne... the canon of Aquaman... The Fyre Fest doc battle... the marketing of Netflix... the first Vanessa Hudgens watch... the acting of Ben Foster...

Movies discussed...
Surviving Christmas... Unseen (doc)... Class Action... Bumblebee... Transformers: The Last Knight... Jupiter Ascending... Pottersville... Aquaman... Roma... Sorry to Bother You... The Favourite...

Episode 361: The Not 2018 Top Ten

January rolls on, and January is full of episodes reflecting upon 2018. Last week, Mikey, Dave, #TwitterlessDrEarl and Friend of the Show Jeremy Burgess recanted their least fave films of 2018, and this week, its the Not 2018 Top Ten. And to do so, it takes a mega-episode to recap.

Burgess gets a new theme song... film festival schedules... the movie goals and not-goals of the movie crew... Are You There God, It's Me Margaret...

Plus the top ten lists of favorite movies seen in 2018 that didn't actually come out in 2018... from 1937 all the way up to 2017.  Movies such as a doc about the LA Riots... a 70s noir classic with Martin Sheen as a bad guy... documentaries about bombshells and Munchhausen by proxy... war rabbits... ghosts... thieves... clowns... predators... bad wedding weekends and, of course, The Monster Squad.

And the films for the 2nd Annual Burgentine's Day are revealed at last.

Find out when Mikey and Dave bring in #TwitterlessDrEarl, and invite in Friend of the Show and Miss Independent himself Jeremy Burgess to talk about the... movies that just aren't for the guys.

And then, a fun and light discussion on the films that just weren't as agreeable in 2018... with some Disney blunders... being WAR READY... traveling with Marky Mark... bad Wakowski Sibs... and of course, Nic Cage.

Enjoy the Lumps of Coal.

Sometimes you watch a movie and are riveted, sometimes you watch a movie and are sad, sometimes you watch a movie and it makes you scared... and then sometimes you are just satisfied because the movie is delightful. Its frickin' delightful. It's a Frickin Movie Delight.

Mikey, Dave and #TwitterlessDrEarl welcome in Friend of the Show "No Just" Clay Shaver, to a talk about that type of movie... but first, the inaugural "Jump to Conclusions" segment (stolen unabashedly from the ESPN Campus Conversation podcast)!
