Episode 139: The 2014 Fall/Winter Movie Preview

Now that it's fall, winter is not too far behind... and that means the movies are getting more Oscar worthy and holidayey... and Mikey, d$ and P!nky are here to tell you all about it.

First, the Top Five of 2014 so far, where you can find out where Denzel's The Equalizer ranks for Mikey... how does P!nky still feel about Boyhood... and is there anything new on d$'s Top Five?

A rousing round of Rotten Tomatoes features Kevin Costner's sports flicks, like For Love of the Game and Draft Day, and then, the preview...

Starting with October, the guys take on each movie weekend and give their input on upcoming blockbusters like Chris Nolan's Interstellar, and Disney's Big Hero Six, and Oscar-bait like Reese Witherspoon's Wild, and Mr. Turner, whatever that is... plus prognosis on random releases like Horrible Bosses 2... the horror flick The Pyramid... Into the Woods... and Foxcatcher...

Plus... why is no one excited about The Hobbit: Battle of the Five Armies

Did P!nky like The Untouchables?  Find out in this episode's Pretty in Pink, plus his next assignment. 

And in a segment called Scary Miketober, Mikey--who hates horror flicks--takes on the task of watching five of P!nky & d$'s favorite thrillers.

And next week, in Episode 140, join the guys for more ReFlicktions, including our take on The Maze Runner, Zero Theorem, Annie Hall and how does d$ truly feel about Safe Haven?

Intermission: The Last Picture Show – Episode 137

In 1971, Peter Bogdavich shot a film in black and white, casted relative unknowns like Jeff Bridges, Cybill Shepherd, Randy Quaid and Timothy Bottoms, along with old Hollywood legends like Ben Johnson, and created a masterpiece film about a dying small town from the 50s buried in West Texas.  Winner of 2 Academy Awards and nominated for 8, the guys tackle The Last Picture Show in this latest Intermission episode.

P!nky, d$ and Mikey discuss the plot, the making of and the legacy of this classic... we hope you enjoy it, and we hope you watch the film itself!
