20 For 20: 20 Films That Turn 20 in 2015

• January 26th, 2015

1995... I must say it was a very good year. And a very bad year.

20 years ago some of the best and worst films ever were released (which, if you think about it, is true of every year) but, because 20 is a nice, round number... let's go with that.

From the sublime to the ridiculous, we take a look at some of the films that defined the nineties.

The Unsinkable John Travolta

• January 19th, 2015

There really isn't a better way to describe John Travolta than "unsinkable." He has run the gamut of Hollywood more than once, but always seems to end up on top. Yes, he makes some bad choices, but when you are regularly putting out three movies a year... that is bound to happen.

By all accounts he is a nice guy who has a charm and charisma that makes him easy to like.

This week we discuss Johnny T. The good, the bad, the baffling, and the ugly.

What does it mean to “be a man?”

• January 12th, 2015

Masculinity is a difficult concept to nail down. Sadly, because we, as people, have come to define everything in terms of absolutes and leave no room for any sort of nuance or shading "masculinity" has become sort of a bad word.  Traditional gender roles and discrimination has turned any classic idea of "masculinity" into a bad word, a way of minimizing or dismissing the efforts of women and dismissing femininity.

This week we discuss why this is wrong. We also discuss why all the sexist bullshit that came before was wrong. In short... we try and figure out what it really means to be a man and how that has been represented in movies up to this point.

This week we kind of talk about Michael Keaton

• December 30th, 2014

Michael Keaton is another one of those actors that define a huge chunk of our childhoods. For years everything he was one of the funniest men on the planet. But he was more than funny. The man can pretty much do it all. He's funny, can kill at drama, and for God's sake... he's Batman. If that wasn't enough, his amazing turn in Birdman has places him as the odds on favorite for an Oscar.

So, this week, we kind of talk about him.
