Episode #115 — The Man Who Shot Liberty Valance

Man Who Shot Liberty Valance podcast review

In the end of his career, John Ford made one more powerhouse movie by teaming up two of the greatest actors of the generation. Neither John Wayne or Jimmy Stewart play Liberty Valance, but maybe one of them was the man who shot him. The guys dive into what Ford is saying about his western legacy, the end of an era and the myth of morality. But it wouldn’t be a successful take on a team-up if they didn’t have a team-up of their own. Enter…Eric’s dad, Ray Martindale!

Episode #114 — The Searchers

The Searchers podcast review

We got The Duke! John Wayne teams up with John Ford again for their most complicated western. In The Searchers, Wayne plays a racist Confederate soldier who spends years looking for his taken niece.

Episode #130 — Heaven and Earth Magic / Aja / Arctic Char / Rock On / The Life and Loves of a She-Devil

Heaven and Earth Magic podcast review

It’s time for a bonus review! Leigh picked the excellent show Anthony Bourdain: Parts Unknown to discuss it as a masterpiece of its genre. This provides excellent counterbalance to the experimental movie they covered, Heaven and Earth Magic. They also listened to the smooth sounds of Steely Dan and David Essex to distract themselves from the Life and Loves of a She-Devil. Also there’s a big announcement! Get excited!

Episode #112 — The Grapes of Wrath

Grapes of Wrath podcast review

Get your water bottle filled because we’re off to the Dust Bowl! I know there are so many Dust Bowl movies and TV shows that air every week, but let’s look back at the first one, The Grapes of Wrath. John Ford adapted this acclaimed John Steinbeck novel with one of the best actors of his generation, Henry Fonda. But is it any good?

Episode #129 — The Ox-Bow Incident / Kick Out the Jams / Frisee / The Mary Tyler Moore Show

Ox-Bow Incident podcast review

Sarah loves westerns! And The Ox-Bow Incident is definitely a western. It follows Henry Fonda and his familiar faced friend as they take on a moral problem. They also listen to DNC’s own MC5, ignore some frisee and take in the delights of The Mary Tyler Moore Show. Also, did Austin and Sarah actually finish Parenthood?!? Don’t look at the timestamp if you want to be surprised!

Episode #128 — The Jerk / Moss Side Story / Greek Oregano / Wide Open Road / QI

The Jerk podcast review

 

Steve Martin has been an amigo, a banjo player and a man with two brains, but first he was a jerk. The Immortals look back at his cinematic breakthrough, The Jerk and wonder how much it has held up. They also listen to a brilliant concept album which is a soundtrack for a movie that doesn’t exist. They also eat oregano in which they have so much to say. Then they dive into QI, the delightful British panel show where you finish it a little bit smarter. Get excited!
