“This lighting from below doesn’t show off my double chin, does it?” Dennis Quaid in The Intruder.

IFFBoston Preview w/ Nancy Campbell and Brian Tamm, LITTLE WOODS and PRINCE OF EGYPT revisited on Episode #249

Lily James is the fuck-up sister and Tessa Thompson has her head screwed on straight, and they’re still in a whole lot of trouble in Little Woods.

This week, Kris and Evan are joined by Nancy Campbell and Brian Tamm of the always spectacular IFFBoston ahead of the annual weeklong festival (April 24 through May 1).  They discuss some of the exciting films, panels, guest appearances, and events of the fest that takes over three of Boston’s best theaters: Somerville, Brattle, and Coolidge. It’s a celebration of film community, and Nancy and Brian highlight filmmakers from years past who have gone on to helm some of the biggest and best movies of the past decade. Later, we meet back up with Dave, who runs us through his thoughts on LITTLE WOODS (53:38), and we close with Evan’s rewatching of THE PRINCE OF EGYPT (1:01:52) ahead of Passover.

LITTLE, I’M JUST FUCKING WITH YOU, and AMAZING GRACE on Episode #248

Issa Rae and Marsai Martin are hilarious together in LITTLE

Kris has a nasty case of the Super Plague so guest Kristen Halbert joins Evan and Dave in hating on kale before the movies this week. First Dave describes why watching the Aretha Franklin documentary AMAZING GRACE (3:51) is a spiritual experience. Then Kristen and Evan talk about why LITTLE (11:37) is absolutely hilarious and genuine despite the fact that it borrows from several films about adults turning into the child versions of themselves. Lastly, all three of them join forces for I’M JUST FUCKING WITH YOU (27:45), the latest in Hulu’s INTO THE DARK series, which has them looking for excuses to talk about literally anything else. Tangents ahoy! Also don’t forget to sign up for our Patreon, where you can hear exclusive audio, like this week’s clip of Evan and Dave discussing ALL THE PRESIDENT’S MEN.

SHAZAM! and THE WIND on Spoilerpiece #247

Is it just me or is Zachary Levi really looking like he’d rather shoot these lightning bolts from his penis?

Two new movies on this week’s episode: atmospheric horror western THE WIND (3:37) and comedy-superhero flick SHAZAM! (14:21). The former is a bleak commentary on isolation and the fear of nothingness faced by women in the Old West, the latter is a gigglefest that continues DC’s upward trend. Check it out!

Boston Underground Film Festival, DUMBO, THE HUMMINGBIRD PROJECT, and JUANITA on Episode #246

Amanda Crew looks bloodied and beaten in the movie Tone-Deaf

Amanda Crew stars in TONE-DEAF, one of Kris and Evan’s favorite movies from this year’s Boston Underground Film Festival

This week the guys gripe about the MBTA and the weird white cones that have popped up in Evan’s neighborhood – but not for long – because Dave is back in “the studio” and they have a ton of movies to talk about! First, Kris sneaks in a quick review of Tim Burton’s DUMBO (4:15) a movie that tries to tell you what’s fun and fails. Next, Dave and Evan cover JUANITA (7:20) the Netflix film that’s perfectly predictable and nice, although pretty mediocre. After that Dave reviews THE HUMMINGBIRD PROJECT (15:55), which he describes as 2/3 of a good movie with Jesse Eisenberg and Alexander Skarsgard. Finally, they arrive at the main event: this year’s coverage of the Boston Underground Film Festival aka BUFF (25:40). Kris and Evan share their thoughts on a plethora of entertaining films including the delightful documentary HAIL SATAN?, the Boomers vs Millennials horror flick TONE-DEAF, the coming-of-age war-musical KANARIE, the queer Giallo slasher KNIFE + HEART, the creepy ghost tale THE NIGHTSHIFTER, and the sex-positive 90s indie MARY JANE’S NOT A VIRGIN ANYMORE. They even talk about a few shorts in between like I OWE YOU ONE BANANA AND TWO BLACK EYES by friend of the show Jim McDonough!

Jordan Peele’s US, and PADDLETON with Ray Romano and Mark Duplass on Episode #245

Even with a silly twist, Us is awright.

What’s the most highly anticipated movie of the year thus far? Probably Jordan Peele’s US, which, luckily, Kris and Evan saw. Yay! (16:50) Plus, Evan and Dave talk about PADDLETON (4:57), a Netflix film starring Mark Duplass and Ray Romano as best friends who like to play a game they invented, eat pizza, and watch kung fu movies. Then one of them is diagnosed with an incurable illness. Our Patreon exclusive audio this week features Evan talking about AWAKENINGS and BREAKING IN, and then everyone gets into a conversation about bad movie poster tagline (maybe this is becoming a theme).
