CAPTAIN AMERICA: CIVIL WAR, THE INVITATION, and IFFBoston on Episode #95

Captain America Civil War

The epic fight scene in CAPTAIN AMERICA: CIVIL WAR

Since Dave can’t make it, guest Sam Cohen joins the guys this week to share a traumatic experience he had while camping. Then he and Kris talk about the films they saw at this year’s IFFBoston, which just wrapped up. They start by discussing THE INTERVENTION, an exceptionally funny film that’s predictable, but great to watch because of how it deals with messy emotions. Soon after, they each reveal their top and bottom picks from the festival: THE ALCHEMIST COOKBOOK, ALWAYS SHINE, BLACK COAT’S DAUGHTER, WEINER, and THE HOLLARS. Following their quick-hit reviews, Evan and Sam spoilerpiece THE INVITATION, a well-directed thriller without much substance in the middle. Kris and Evan close up by spoiling CAPTAIN AMERICA: CIVIL WAR with a review that sounds negative even though they both enjoyed the movie.

ALOHA, SPY, and KURT COBAIN: MONTAGE OF HECK on Episode #47

Screen Shot 2015-06-07 at 10.50.02 AMBefore he escapes Boston for NYC, Sam Cohen makes his first ever podcast appearance as the special guest on this week’s episode. Being the yougin’ that he is, Sam shares his experience watching BIG TROUBLE IN LITTLE CHINA for the first time. The guys discuss its impending remake along while comparing Kurt Russell and The Rock. Then Sam tells Kris and Evan about Cameron Crowe’s degeneration as a filmmaker with his nonsensical movie ALOHA. None of them know what a gate opening ceremony is or how music by David Bowie can blow up a satellite, but apparently both are important plot elements. Thankfully Kris and Sam saw SPY, which pleasantly surprised both of them. After they tell Evan all about why he should see it, he and Sam finish up the show by talking about KURT COBAIN: MONTAGE OF HECK. Want to find out why the documentary gave Evan all the feels? Then tune in.

HOT PURSUIT, FAR FROM THE MADDING CROWD, and PLAYING IT COOL on Episode #43

This week Kris starts off by recommending a title for Dave’s autobiography. Dave gets a good laugh out of that before explaining why he doesn’t watch bad ’80s John Travolta movies (except URBAN COWBOY) and why Debra Winger is one of his least favorite onscreen presences. After that he talks about how HOT PURSUIT tries to subvert buddy comedy cliches and fails. In the process, Kris describes how he got accidentally hooked on THE NEW GIRL. Then he and Evan talk about the layers and complexity in FAR FROM THE MADDING CROWD that make it such an enjoyable film. Finally, Dave wraps things up with his take on PLAYING IT COOL, a romantic comedy which has some decent moments, but mostly gets demerits from him for “being dumb as shit.”

Adam Sandler, AVENGERS: AGE OF ULTRON, EX MACHINA, and IFFBoston on Episode #42

This is an accurate representation of the number of enemies the Avengers fight in AGE OF ULTRON

This week the guys all agree that they would be better off never seeing another Adam Sandler movie after discussing Dave’s op ed on Sandler’s project THE RIDICULOUS 6. Then they move on to talking about AVENGERS: AGE OF ULTRON, which Evan forgets to refer to by its full name. Dave likes the film a lot, but Evan and Kris have some issues with it. Next, Dave fills them in on Alex Garland’s EX MACHINA, leading Kris to wonder aloud “Why does a robot have a butt?” No one really has a good answer other than sexism. Finally, Kris wraps up by talking about stuff he caught at IFFBoston like WELCOME TO LEITH, CALL ME LUCKY, and THE TRIBE. One of these films almost made Kris lose his burrito dinner because it was “astounding, gripping, and holy shit disturbing.” Tune in to find out which one it is.
