AHHHHHHHHH! That’s The Immortals quoting their favorite actor, Brendan Fraser, in the classic(?) film The Mummy, Sarah’s bonus pick for this episode. They also review their previously scheduled picks of Blue Velvet, a Paul Weller album, a song by Beats International and a hit British sorta-soap. Get excited for a lot of Mummy talk!
Welcome back to Pandora! That planet you forgot you went to in 2009. The Immortals–sans Pedro–revist the James Cameron uber-blockbuster Avatar. Sarah also is very excited to finally listen to Lupe Fiasco and the group talks about the strange achievement that is Orphan Black. Also we finally learn what is Sarah’s bonus pick for next week! Get excited!
STAR WARS! You know what it is! We know what it is! It’s very famous! The Immortals are going to talk about it! They also go back to last week’s album to cover a Bob Dylan masterpiece. Then they listen to Everybody But the Girl and Youssou N’Dour. But it’s a lot of time devoted to Star Wars, Game of Thrones and Detective Pikachu because obviously.
The Immortals have reached the end of The Apu Trilogy with the film The World of Apu. They look back the classic Satyajit Ray films and how the films really work best as a whole. They also dive into the The Carpenters’ and the miniseries Widows. They’ll listen to Bob Dylan’s album next week. Also enjoy the surprise Keanu Reeves cameo! You can’t guess where it’ll be!
Play us a song, we’re the Piano cast! (I hate myself for even writing that but clearly I’m not going to delete it.) Anywho, The Immortals are reviewing the 1993 Jane Campion classic, The Piano. They also dive into the sounds of Supergrass and Elliott Smith. Then they go into the tent for one of the loveliest reality shows ever made, The Great British Bake-Off. Get excited!
Grab your milkshakes before they’re gone, it’s the final movie review of Let’s Take Five. The guys dive into the Paul Thomas Anderson Oscar winning film, There Will Be Blood. They look into the complexity of the character of Daniel Plainview, the themes of duplicity and the films long-lasting impact on pop culture. Get excited!
The Immortals are back and they’re in the zone! They were guided by a Stalker to find The Room and find out if they can make sense of any of it. They also listen to Queen Latifah’s breakthrough album, The Cure’s catchy single and a miniseries so boring the segment is less than four minutes long. Enjoy!
WE NEED THOSE LEADS! Podcast leads that is! Ah! Get it?! The Immortals are reviewing Glengarry Glen Ross and it’s all about getting the leads. It’s a thing, watch the movie, they spend most of the episode talking about it. They also listen to albums by Queen and Missy Elliott and a song by Tori Amos. Then Austin watches a miniseries based off a beloved book and his friends tell him to stop watching Gotham. Some friends they are! THEY PROBABLY DON’T EVEN HAVE THE GOOD LEADS.
“All my life I wanted to review The Royal Tenenbaums.” “Me too.”
Eric and Austin break down one of Eric’s favorite films–and favorite films to quote. It is the story of a father who abandoned his family and left them all emotionally stunted geniuses. The guys break down how this film features some of the best performances by its cast (included Gene Hackman), the particular qualities of the set design and its use of music.
