Episode #73 — High Noon / Can’t Buy A Thrill / Cornichon / Tears of a Clown / The Dreams of the Toad / The Gong Show

High Noon podcast review

The Immortals continue their exploration of the Old Gods’ realm, finding rooms that would be too ridiculous to believe if they didn’t ACTUALLY in REAL LIFE see them! And of course, they still find time to relay their lukewarm opinion of High Noon, their realization that maybe you Can’t Buy A Thrill, their love/hate relationship with vinegar and Cornichon, their “glass half full” attitude toward Tears of a Clown, their unwillingness to learn Spanish, and their increasing ennui with the beloved Gong Show. Next week promises to have some exciting developments in the Old Gods realm, but who knows?! We’ve been wrong before and we’ll do it again!

Episode #51 — Superman

Superman podcast review

What’s that in the sky? It is a bird? It is a plane? No, it’s the cloud which stores all of our podcasts. The latest of which is our review of Superman! Austin and Eric start their Five with a look at the first major studio superhero film, the adaptation of the Superman comics. They hired two Oscar winning actors, they got John Williams right after Star Wars and even got a surprising screenwriter. Was this enough to give justice to the character created to defend justice?

Episode #72 — Children of Paradise / Bitches Brew / Hop Shoot / People Get Ready / Children’s Garden of Verses / The Waltons

Children of Paradise podcast review

The Immortals are back! You would think that being so worldly, they would have the means to get good theatre seats but they usually end up with the Children of Paradise. Which is the movie they’re reviewing this week! Also they have some of the tasty Bitches Brew, ignore the hops, get entranced by some People Get Ready, talk about Snookie more than you would expect and say goodnight to John-Boy. All in one episode! Whoo!

Richard Linklater Wrap-Up

Richard Linklater podcast review

Eric went into this Five not sure what was going to happen and found himself going through a whole roller coaster of emotions. Austin and Eric go through the films they watched and discussed more of Richard Linklater’s fine work. Most importantly, since recording the Before Sunrise episode Eric has ignored Austin’s advice and quickly watched the rest of the set. So there are some spoilers on their mini-discussion of Before Sunset and Before Midnight. Also, enough of this quiet talking–it’s time for a radical new Five!

#5 — Monk is the Gene Genie (Gattaca)

Gattaca podcast review

This month, Meredith, Sarah, and special guest privacy lawyer Carolina discuss Gattaca, everyone’s favorite movie about genetic discrimination! Join us as we explain how GINA is not just the name of a pretty lady, how much Ron Paul friggin’ loves this movie, ways Trump could do more to mess up American Immigration, and the general fact that neither lawyers nor ethicists have any idea what the heck we’re really talking about when we start looking too closely at people’s DNA. ​

Episode #50 — Boyhood

Boyhood podcast review

50 episodes. Well, 50 main episodes; there are so many bonus episodes. But it’s all about how you choose to depict time. Is it counting every second or is it about the important times you remember. We hit this milestone with Richard Linklater’s epic Boyhood. 13 years in the making as the crew kept returning to Texas to tell the next stage of this family’s life. Not in terms of all the big moment, but of the ones that really make a quiet impact. Join Austin and Eric as they see how the film works beyond the structure and what made certain scenes feel so emotional.

Episode #71 — Young Frankenstein / I Against I / Andouillle de Vire / Black Metal / Doraemon / Walking with Dinosaurs

Young Frankenstein podcast review

The Immortals return and they don’t notice the connection between them losing their sanity as they venture the creepy settings of the old gods realm and their review of Young Frankenstein. They also review a punk album that really should have made their own cover of Puttin’ on the Ritz, Adam betrays the gods of vegetarianism by eating a sausage, Austin does his best metal impression and then Sarah tries to define what the hell Walking the Dinosaurs is. Also no matter when you listen to this episode, we swear Gene Hackman was alive when we recorded this. Enjoy!

Episode #49 — School of Rock

School of Rock podcast review

Recess is in session! Two and two make Five! In perhaps their weirdest pick, Austin and Eric are here to discuss Richard Linklater’s School of Rock. Is this film worthy of a half hour discussion? It actually is! As Richard Linklater went to the studios, he still brought his flair for passion, affection and character to a movie about imposter teacher. Also it’s really charming.

Episode #70 — Alien / L’Eau Rogue / Boldo Leaf / Life in a Northern Town / Gargling with Jelly / Dae Jang Geum

Alien podcast review

Another ten episodes down, 931 to go! This week the Immortals continue to try to find Bethany in the Old God’s dimension and watch Sarah’s pick for The List: A Few Good Men. Then, they touch on super-beings in their review of Alien. They find that Young Gods are waaay better than Old Gods, and Life In A Northern Town isn’t so bad. Gargling with Jelly is literally and figuratively explored, and finally, Austin once again delivers a tour de force monologue when he discusses yet another obscure TV show that no one else watched,

Episode #48 — Before Sunrise

Before Sunrise podcast review

How did a film about two people walking around Vienna and talking about whatever comes into their minds turn into a beloved cult trilogy? Austin and Eric find out by diving into Before Sunrise. Yet they can’t do it alone. They are joined by the wonderful director and co-writers of the independent romance film, Hank and Asha. James E. Duff, Julia Morrison and the guys discuss what it takes to depict a true connection in fiction, how conversations change when both people choose to be completely honest and why this ending is so damn good.
