Twenty-Five Years Later: VIRTUOSITY

August 5, 2020

On August 4, 1995 the world thankfully ignored a film with Russell Crowe dancing in the buff and fingering Denzel Washington in a dystopian future that is almost as bad as the world we currently live in. Enjoy our episode on VIRTUOSITY!

Twenty-Five Years Later: THE NET

Twenty-Five Years Later: THE NET

July 30, 2020

Twenty-five years ago on July 28, 1995 the world watched as America's sweetheart Sandy B. was terrorized by a man who hunts sharks with a silencer and creeps on the ladies with the even deadlier weapon of a Dell. Thankfully we can learn from the early days of the internet by perusing this time as archived by the fine folks over at r/sandrabullock. And we spend most of the episode doing JUST THAT. Also we talk about THE NET movie for a bit.

Ten Years Later: WINNEBAGO MAN

Ten Years Later: WINNEBAGO MAN

July 28, 2020

winnebagomanpromo.jpgThere once was a time (specifically July 9, 2010) when the world... well, the world largely ignored the release of a feature length documentary on a public freakout video. However now may be the time for WINNEBAGO MAN as kids everywhere flock to The Youtube and The Twitch and ignore great art such as two old friends talking around selected films and the nearing the warm embrace of death. Enjoy!

Ten Years Later: PREDATORS

Ten Years Later: PREDATORS

July 26, 2020

Adrien Brody will beat you up. Or so they tried to convince us ten years ago with the release of PREDATORS on July 9, 2010. Your hosts were puzzled and upset.

Nothing has changed.

Three Years Later: GIRLS TRIP

Three Years Later: GIRLS TRIP

July 15, 2020

girlstrippromo.jpgWith JAWS hitting a little too close to home about the dangers of opening up too soon we decided to go with a different movie for our Fourth of July watching. One that reflects a more positive aspect of our lives. A promotion for our future rebranding of this podcast (since @jackshack is taken) as THE REGINA HALL POWER HOUR. Your two favorite hosts movie anniversary podcast hosts from Kentucky with an audience of a vocal dozen (two) went on a GIRLS TRIP. Enjoy!

Forty-Five Years Later: THE DROWNING POOL

Forty-Five Years Later: THE DROWNING POOL

July 13, 2020

drowningpoolpromo.jpgWe congratulate ourselves on managing to talk about such sacred cinema in Steven Spielberg's JAWS by immediately turning to a forgotten released five days later in the Paul Newman starring THE DROWNING POOL. This sequel to a 60s P.I. film confuses us... as does our tragic quest to get ahold of the Twitter handles @jackshack or even @jerkshack.

Also we talk about nipples some more and obviously the current political climate. Enjoy!

Forty-Five Years Later: JAWS

Forty-Five Years Later: JAWS

June 29, 2020

In the age of COVID-19 one host just has to accept that he can excuse the Mayor of Amity Island because the man has fantastic hair and is a snappy dresser. The other host would like to talk about nipples. Also this JAWS movie is a masterpiece and has been since its release on June 20, 1975. What new material do you want from us here? Enjoy your holiday and stay inside playing this new video game that is described as "Grand Theft Auto except you are a shark!" Be a hero and choose your summer vacation wisely.

Forty Years Later: THE BLUE LAGOON

Forty Years Later: THE BLUE LAGOON

June 26, 2020

On the nineteenth and twentieth of June in the year of our Lord 1980 the coastal elites got their chance to see young adults (really young) discover sex for the first time in THE BLUE LAGOON. This uncomfortable bit of marketing a fourteen year old Brooke Shields in a state of undress would soon make its way to the flyover states... and be just as financially successful. So here we are forty years later and SOBER CINEMA has to be the moral arbiter of film. As it should be.

Seventy Years Later: THE ASPHALT JUNGLE and NIGHT AND THE CITY

Seventy Years Later: THE ASPHALT JUNGLE and NIGHT AND THE CITY

June 1, 2020

Dusty old farts discuss a time when grappling solved disputes, heaving bosoms were a sign of physical fitness and men were just meaner. Like when your father challenges you to perform moves from NBA JAM in real life and you disappoint him repeatedly we are here to disappoint you by attempting to talk about classic cinema in THE ASPHALT JUNGLE and NIGHT AND THE CITY. Seventy years of reverence as some of the greatest film noir is slotted in after ten minutes talking about Twitch streams. You are welcome, dear listener.
