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...
