Ep. 25 - Eight Years Later: THE SOCIAL NETWORK and CHAIN LETTER

October 20, 2018

SocialNetworkChainLetterPROMO.jpg

As we are probably one of the most popular producers of online content, we feel it is our responsibility to celebrate the anniversary of David Fincher and Aaron Sorkin's classic THE SOCIAL NETWORK. However this was not the only film on the end of anonymity released on October 1, 2010... for our forgotten film on this episode is THE Nasty Hellcat selected slasher flick CHAIN LETTER. One film should have won Best Picture and the other is the usual vengeance tour from one of our co-hosts and "friends" to force us to waste precious minutes of our lives. Speaking of which, here's all of our social media links:

Ep. 24 - Twelve Years Later: JACKASS NUMBER TWO and FLYBOYS

October 17, 2018

JackasNumberTwoFlyboysPROMO.jpg

In honor of co-host THE Nasty Hellcat's birthday, we program what he calls "the greatest achievement in cinema" JACKASS NUMBER TWO. Much like the second GODFATHER this film met with instant critical acclaim upon its release on September 22, 2006, while this was very much not the case for the presumably respectable war drama FLYBOYS. Journey back twelve years with us as we see if we've gained the maturity needed to applaud the heroes of WW2 as opposed to our usual desire to see a man kicked in the nuts. Mostly the latter at our social media links below:

Ep. 23 - One Year Later: IT and MEMOIR OF A MURDERER

October 10, 2018

ItMemoirOfAMurdererPROMO.jpg

It's been one year since the release of a new adaptation of Stephen King's IT and the South Korean hit MEMOIR OF A MURDERER on September 8, 2017. So we decided to celebrate not only these films by remembering our youth (which also involved sleepovers with perverse clowns) but also where we are now... cantankerous old men who hate everyone and everything. Find more of our charming film discussion at the links below and thanks for the download!

Ep. 22 - Twenty-Five Years Later: NEEDFUL THINGS and THE LAST PARTY

October 3, 2018

NeedfulThingsLastPartyPROMO.jpg

To celebrate this summer's Hulu series CASTLE ROCK (pretty fun) and our country increasingly divided by politics (not as fun) we look back twenty-five years ago to August 27, 1993. On that day NEEDFUL THINGS was the popular mainstream release of what would most assuredly be another disappointing Stephen King adaptation as Max von Sydow comes to down as the devil getting his groove back with some small town Americana greed. Our selected forgotten film for this date damn well should have stayed that way as Robert Downey Jr. learns us a thing or two about "the youth vote" in the documentary THE LAST PARTY. Learn nothing with us and thank you for the download!

Ep. 21 - One Year Later: UNFORGETTABLE and CITIZEN JANE THE BATTLE FOR THE CITY

October 1, 2018

UnforgettableCitizenJanePROMO.jpg

On April 21, 2017 the world was gifted with a bold cinematic experience featuring a woman who just would not take no for an answer. A woman who would not let her passion for bringing people closer together be stifled by the cynics or the practical aspects of life. That woman most would say is Jane Jacobs as seen in the documentary CITIZEN JANE: THE BATTLE FOR THE CITY. But here at SOBER CINEMA we say nah, it's Katherine Heigl in UNFORGETTABLE. Don't try that elitist crap with us, we have a catfight to watch. Join us!

Ep. 20 - Thirteen Years Later: THE AMITYVILLE HORROR and HOUSE OF D

August 31, 2018

Here at SOBER CINEMA we encourage you to get out of the house and live (also because you are more likely to listen to our podcast if not surrounded by those who love you and/or Netflix). With that being said, here are two films released on April 15, 2005 where the characters are offered this same advice, and find that ignoring the hosts can be quite perilous. In the more popular selection Ryan Reynolds does his best (which isn't much) impression of Jack Nicholson in THE SHINING for the remake of THE AMITYVILLE HORROR; and in HOUSE OF D, David Duchovny presents a cover band version of all coming of age stories. This at least gives your hosts more to talk about than just Mr. Deadpool's impressive abs. If you need more than that in your life... follow us at the links below:

Ep. 19 - Three Years Later: THE LONGEST RIDE and CLOUDS OF SILS MARIA

August 29, 2018

One host who will not be named (mainly because he is the one who is writing these show notes) just could not stay away from the Nicholas Sparks Cinematic Universe for too long, so we dive back in and celebrate the glory that was the April 10, 2015 release of THE LONGEST RIDE starring Little Scottie Eastwood and Little Britt Robertson who just make an ADORABLE couple. Not so much with the indie darling of that day CLOUDS OF SILS MARIA as Juliette Binoche and Kristen Stewart spend most of this art film debating the nature of art in film... with occasional flirting. We try to keep the timelines straight of both these features as they both take pleasure in making a mess of a straight narrative, and we attempt to do the same in podcast form.

Ep. 18 - Six Years Later: AMERICAN REUNION and DAMSELS IN DISTRESS

August 27, 2018

After a summer break we have our own podcast reunion as your three loveable (?) hosts return to their high school and college days as represented in two films that released on April 6, 2012 in AMERICAN REUNION and DAMSELS IN DISTRESS. One film has us feeling old as Jason Biggs and Sean William Scott try to relive the antics of sexual relations with delicious desserts, while the other has us feeling even older as we try to understand the appeal of starting a dance craze with Greta Gerwig. Also one host (Jared, of course) has a heart attack. The charms of The Gerwig are just that strong. Hopefully you find this episode charming and follow us at the links below:

Ep. 17 - Thirty Years Later: BEETLEJUICE and THE SEVENTH SIGN

April 3, 2018

BeetlejuiceSeventhSignPROMO.jpg

Like an unwanted tenant we are back in your earbuds with our latest episode celebrating the 30th anniversary of BEETLEJUICE releasing into theaters and wondering how it would be received (or even made) in today's movie landscape. And then we head into uncharted territory with our chosen forgotten film released on the same weekend (and in this film's case, appropriately on April Fool's Day 1988) in the Demi Moore starring THE SEVENTH SIGN. It's probably for the best that films like this aren't made today but that doesn't mean we didn't have a lot of fun with this version of the apocalypse as foretold by Jesus, male model assassin.

Ep. 16 - Thirty-Five Years Later: THE OUTSIDERS and BAD BOYS

March 30, 2018

OutsiderBadBoysPROMO.jpg

We celebrate thirty-five years of never being sent to juvenile prison (though one of our hosts did participate in a frozen chicken strip heist as a camp counselor) by looking back to March 25, 1983 when THE OUTSIDERS and BAD BOYS were released to theaters. Among the many things we debate in this episode on ill-mannered young hooligans is which name is more badass: Ponyboy, Soda Pop, or Sean Penn? Also is it okay to laugh at the tears from a young Ralph Macchio? Most importantly... how did Francis Ford Coppola NOT KNOW what he had on his hands with a young Tom Cruise backflipping his way into being The Greatest Movie Star of All Time? None of these things will be answered to your satisfaction, but we appreciate the support at the links below:
