Twenty-Five Years Later: WOLF and GETTING EVEN WITH DAD

Twenty-Five Years Later: WOLF and GETTING EVEN WITH DAD

June 22, 2019

Jack Nicholson's passion project of over a decade finally came to pass as WOLF released in theaters on June 17, 1994. If you just happened to be some combination of an idiot and a soulless, lifeless husk whose own mother regretted your very existence then you probably skipped the good time that is The Jack Wolf and watched GETTING EVEN WITH DAD instead. And while Ted Danson has one spectacular wig (and a pony tail!) the hijinks with Macauley Culkin are nothing compared to the fun to be had seeing James Spader pissed on. Agree at the links below:

Two Years Later: THE MUMMY and THE HERO

Two Years Later: THE MUMMY and THE HERO

June 21, 2019

For our fiftieth episode we celebrate the old and the cursed as Sam Elliott faces the prospect of death in THE HERO and Tom Cruise, being Tom Cruise, kicks around the notion of living forever in THE MUMMY. Both films released two years ago on June 9, 2017 and while both have their merits... clearly SOBER CINEMA has outlasted their legacy.

Thirteen Years Later: THE BREAK-UP and COASTLINES

Thirteen Years Later: THE BREAK-UP and COASTLINES

June 20, 2019

As we near our fiftieth episode there may be some of you (hopefully very few as we don't have many listeners to begin with) contemplating breaking up with us. That would be a mistake. Let us take you back thirteen years when THE BREAK-UP starring Vince Vaughn and Jennifer Aniston presented this particular unpleasant event in a humorous light. If that's not enough where else will you find a movie podcast covering the Josh Brolin and Timothy Olyphant classic COASTLINES? I rest my case. Click here for more of the GREAT Sober Cinema:

Twenty-Five Years Later: MAVERICK and EVEN COWGIRLS GET THE BLUES

Twenty-Five Years Later: MAVERICK and EVEN COWGIRLS GET THE BLUES

June 19, 2019

America's favorite movie star is back with a charming action adventure film just before Memorial Day weekend... Mel Gibson, of course. Don't worry we'll get to Keanu Reeves for the anniversary of JOHNNY MNEMONIC next year. For now we're celebrating twenty-five years since the western MAVERICK took the box office crown for the weekend of May 20-22 in 1994. The forgotten film? One that your hosts were only aware of through its disastrous reputation, the Uma Thurman starring EVEN COWGIRLS GET THE BLUES. We'll see how far goddess Uma wiggling her big thumbs can take us in our latest episode! Now click here you perverts:

Eight Years Later: THOR and SOMETHING BORROWED

Eight Years Later: THOR and SOMETHING BORROWED

June 15, 2019

On May 6, 2011 the world accepted a fallen god in Chris Hemsworth... just Chris Hemsworth not THOR. But that was the big movie at the box office while another new release SOMETHING BORROWED placed fourth for the weekend. And while the latter film has a very competitive blonde in Kate Hudson, this romcom's charms of scheming and lying were just not enough to stare into the face of a god (with oddly dyed eyebrows)... that god being Chris Hemsworth. He's Australian. That basic bitch Hudson never stood a chance. Click here for eyebrow tutorials:

One Year Later: A QUIET PLACE and THE ENDLESS

One Year Later: A QUIET PLACE and THE ENDLESS

June 10, 2019

On April 6, 2018 the world was terrified by the varied facial expressions of Jim from THE OFFICE. And while this great man has produced many a GIF, one of our hosts thinks that John Krasinski's A QUIET PLACE is one big missed opportunity at the world's greatest fart joke. No such expectation was placed on our chosen forgotten film THE ENDLESS, as Justin Benson and Aaron Moorhead just give another host fodder for his almost sexual obsession with David Lynch-like imagery. Overall these show notes do a good job of making this whole podcast sound unappealing. Click here:

Ten Years Later: WATCHMEN and REUNION

Ten Years Later: WATCHMEN and REUNION

June 5, 2019

Ten years ago on March 6, 2009 we got our first disappointing comic book adaptation from Zack Snyder. But instead of piling on we just embrace the glowing blue penis this misunderstood genius gave us in WATCHMEN. Which is more than we can say for our chosen forgotten film REUNION. Not. A. Single. Blue. Dick. This movie stinks, but we don't. Click here:

Eight Years Later: HALL PASS and DRIVE ANGRY

Eight Years Later: HALL PASS and DRIVE ANGRY

June 3, 2019

Still angry over GREEN BOOK winning Best Picture? Think it wasn't as good as a TRUE Farrelly Bros. classic like HALL PASS? Well then take a trip back with us to the weekend of February 25-27 when that film opened #1 at the box office against Nicolas Cage escaping hell in a fast muscle car from DRIVE ANGRY. And while Peter Farrelly may have an Oscar, we think our forgotten film featuring a gunfight with a fugitive from hell in the act of sexual intercourse could truly be The Only Best Picture.

Five Years Later: ABOUT LAST NIGHT and ENDLESS LOVE

Five Years Later: ABOUT LAST NIGHT and ENDLESS LOVE

May 31, 2019

Two 80s remakes released on Valentine's Day weekend 2014 but only one ends with an All-American couple having sex with a chicken mask on. Since this is an audio only podcast we include the clucking sounds but you should really watch ABOUT LAST NIGHT with Regina Hall and Kevin Hart.

Oh and the other movie was ENDLESS LOVE. It stinks.

Ten Years Later: HE’S JUST NOT THAT INTO YOU and FANBOYS

May 30, 2019

On February 6, 2009 the world finally solved the problem of the battle of the sexes and for those that were not participating in the act of sex... well those poor bastards got a movie that finally ten years later celebrated the release of STAR WARS: EPISODE 1 - THE PHANTOM MENACE. In this very meta episode we bring on Star Wars fan Jason Michael of the Atlantic Screen Connection podcast to discuss the much maligned FANBOYS along with the advice from Drew Barrymore and company in HE'S JUST NOT THAT INTO YOU.
