All posts for the month January, 2015

Hello folks.

Today sees the return of Rachel (this time with a proper Otto picture) and a discussion about one of my favorite popcorn movies. A Knight’s Tale takes the sports movie formula and applies it to medieval jousting. Along with the intentional anachronisms, it’s a formula that didn’t work for a lot of people but I am an unabashed fan. I hope you enjoy.

Happy Wednesday folks!

I’m a huge fan of this movie so I was super excited when Zach picked it to watch and talk about. I think everybody pulls something different from this movie when they watch it and it’s always an interesting conversation discovering what it means to different people at different times of their life.

Birdman-Keaton-Norton(2)

I might be 21 days late with this, but happy new year everyone. Yeah okay, so I’ve been a little lax with the writing this year, what can I say? It’s January, and so far 2015 is shaping up to be one of my best years ever. That’s another way of saying that I’ve been having way too much fun. What fun you ask? Well, I saw Birdman over the weekend and I hate to succumb to the hype train, but I was impressed. So impressed I felt the need to share why, because there’s a lot there. (I also feel the need to give a quick warning here: I don’t feel like I spoil the plot at all, but if you were wanting to go into this movie blind, I do detail a bit of the technical accomplishment of the film, which you may want to discover yourself. Also fair warning: Arty farty bullshit is on full display below). Continue Reading

Hi folks!

I hope you all had a great holiday. I took some much needed time off but I’m definitely glad to be back and presenting this first episode of the new year. This is a fun one. Marty definitely chose an unconventional movie to talk about. They literally don’t make movies this way anymore. Giant cast, massive locations budget, super long run time with tons of stunts and an intermission. I hope you all enjoy the conversation and the movie.
