First Run - Wonder Woman 1984

For our first First Run episode in a long time, we're revealing the truth about the second cinematic adventure of DC Comic's greatest heroine by wrapping our golden lasso around Wonder Woman 1984. Amid the storm of criticism and controversy surrounding Patty Jenkins' follow-up to her 2017 hit, how does the movie fare with us? Warning: Contains explicit language, spoilers, but not nearly enough Robin Wright.

The Hudsucker Proxy

The future is now and as we leave 2020, the future can't get here fast enough. We're ringing in the new year with the Coen Brothers' idiosyncratic homage to Hollywood comedies of yesteryear, The Hudsucker Proxy. Listen as we fall (fail) into the verbal, narrative, and literal circles of the screenplay, examine the film's simultaneously idealistic and cynical look at American industry, and decode the symbolism in the movie's sterling production design and costuming. Warning: Contains explicit language, spoilers, and an extruded plastic dingus.

Santa Claus: The Movie

What to our wandering eyes should appear? Is it a bird? Is it a plane? Is it a weird attempt at a Christmas franchise? We're trying to stay off the naughty list as we watch the 1985 yuletide family film Santa Claus: The Movie! Listen as we discuss how the film serves as a superhero origin story for Kris Kringle, explore the film's confused portrait of Christmas commercialism and capitalism, and decry the fat-shaming of Santa. Warning: Contains explicit language, spoilers, and bad Bane impersonations.
