Episode #100 — The Lion King / Urban Hymns / Bagel / Spice Up Your Life / The Spirit Wind / Treme

The Lion King podcast review

HOLY CRAP! It’s Episode 100! It’s been two years and over 500 reviews. This shall be a very special episode for a number of reasons. (Mostly because Austin got new shoes.) Join us as The Immortals continue their voyage through space for some ridiculous reason as they review The Lion King, some more emo British music, bagels, the Spice Girls, ignore the actual book to talk about Lemony Snicket, and an underseen David Simon HBO show. Also, the bonus review is Austin’s favorite movie!

Episode #79 — The Young Girls of Rochefort

The Young Girls of Rochetfort podcast review

The Five started off on a bad foot where Gene Kelly played an American who went to Paris. Maybe The Young Girls of Rochefort will end up differently for the guys. It’s co-stars Gene Kelly who plays an American in a French film. It’s one of the most beloved films by Jacques Demy who has a brilliant approach to musicals and this his tribute to the Hollywood that Kelly helped establish.

Episode #99 — North by Northwest / Young Americans / Paski Sir / Theme from Shaft / Oh, the Places You’ll Go / Farmer Wants a Wife

North By Northwest podcast review

In Alfred Hitchcock’s North by Northwest, there is a very simple message. If you don’t want to have international assassins and criminals trying to murder you in beautiful locales, don’t be a dick to your waiter. Lessons to live by. Also we have David Bowie this episode, the return of Shaft and the review of the book every graduate receives whether they want it or not.

Episode #78 — It’s Always Fair Weather

It's Always Fair Weather podcast review

The weirdest Five continues as Austin tests Eric’s patience with Gene Kelly with the film that tested Hollywood’s patience with Gene Kelly: It’s Always Fair Weather. It is the story of three soldiers who reunite after ten years to discover they aren’t the friends they once knew. It’s experimental and not always perfect, but it goes for some really bold ideas. Perhaps it’ll work better as a sci-fi film…?

Episode #97 — Midnight Cowboy / Dare! / Squid Ink / Shot By Both Sides / The Little White Horse / Riget (The Kingdom)

Midnight Cowboy podcast review

The Immortals review the Best Picture winner Midnight Cowboy which features the character Ratso Rizzo, who is often mistaken for a Muppet or a Pink Lady. This is the homeless sick guy who is trying to help pimp out his friend. Easy to confuse them all. Anywho, the gang also reviews some more stuff!

Episode #96 — M / Pet Sounds / Duku / Tuttie Frutti / Moomin, Mymble and Little My / Dr. Kildaire

M podcast review

Peter Lorre is often remembered as being the creepy but harmless guy in Casablanca and The Maltese Falcon. Yet years before those movies, he played a really complicated role as a murderer of children in M. And we’re going to review it! Also, one of the most beloved albums of all time, a super catchy song and a melodramatic medical drama. Get excited! Also Adam’s missing because he’s losing his mind but don’t worry about that.
