Episode #107 — The Seventh Seal / Queen II / Tomme de Savoie / Maybe I’m Amazed / Only Fools and Horses

The Seventh Seal podcast review

The last time we saw Ingmar “Chuckles” Bergman, it was Cries and Whispers and Austin called it one of the most upsetting movies ever made. What does he think of The Seventh Seal which literally has Death following good people until he can take them away? (He loves it.) It’s also time for a fantasy battle of musical proportions with Queen, the sweet/cheesy sounds of Paul McCartney and somehow the most popular British sitcom of all time. GET EXCITED. Oh and there’s a weird puzzle to hold you over while we take a week off. Solve it!

Episode #106 — Throne of Blood / Autobahn / Tilister / The Man Who Sold the World / Brideshead Revisited

Throne of Blood podcast review

Double, double toil and trouble. Fire burn and cauldron bubble. That was the creepy repeated phrase of the witches in William Shakespeare’s Macbeth. Throne of Blood is an adaptation of the Bard’s tragic tale except instead of witches, it’s a weird dude in the forest. Also there are samurais. It’s awesome. Also we have the album Autobahn, David Bowie, and another beloved British miniseries. Beware the Scottish play!

Episode #105 — Steamboat Bill, Jr. / Olympia 64 / Longan / How High the Moon / Canzonissima

Steamboat Bill Jr podcast review

The episode is finally out! We’re sorry for the delay but there was an insane hurricane that kept knocking down all of our buildings. Oh wait, no sorry, that was the silent film Steamboat Bill, Jr. They also listen to an older French album, a nifty song that was popularized by an Ella Fitzgerald cover and some shitty grapes! (They aren’t grapes.)

Episode #104 — Inception / Sound of Silver / Lekvar / Flux / The 100

Inception podcast review

The greatest virus in an idea, according to Christopher Nolan’s Inception. Then enjoy as we present you a series of ideasĀ directly into your ear holes. We will make you believe his film is actually a dissection into filmmaking, we will make you want to go to an LCD Soundsystem concert, we will have you believe that lekvar is not available where we are, we will have you believe the Bloc Party music video is coherent and we may even convince you that The 100 was described properly. But the real question is…..when did you start listening to this show? Think about it. I know you’re here now, but when did you get here?

Episode #103 — Gimme Shelter / Number of the Beast / Ptarmigan / Boys Don’t Cry / Sliders

Gimme Shelter podcast review

What are The Immortals if not the foremost experts on rocking and the follow-up action of rolling? Today they are diving into one of the most beloved rockumentaries, Gimme Shelter, covering a memorable tour by The Rolling Stones. Then they have Iron Maiden screaming to Satan, a music video so good it seems like a short film and then they end with….Sliders. Which does technically have a musician as one of the leads. (He doesn’t rock though.)

Episode #102 — Days of Heaven / California / Holy Basil / Im Nin’Alu / Takeshi’s Castle

Days of Heaven podcast review

Terence Malick makes beautiful films that are known for their peaceful aesthetic and calming atmosphere. So of course we argued about it. The Immortals reviewed the Days of Heaven, Malick’s second film, which takes place in Texas. Then they went to California, Israel and Japan. We’re so cultured!

Episode #101 — Grease / The Real Thing / Chives / Voices Carry / Top Gear

Grease podcast review

OH MY GOD WE’RE BACK AGAIN! After surviving Leigh crashing their space ship, the four Immortals are hiding on [REDACTED] and back to reviewing so many very random pieces of pop culture. And there’s no better movie about coming back from break and realizing everything is bonkers and this plot doesn’t make any sense than Grease! Also we have a band who is apparently not the Red Hot Chili Peppers, we confirm chives are weird, we know what not to do at the opera in a music video and we talk about a car show but never really talk about cars. Get excited!

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!

Be sure you listen to the episode to the very end. Be sure to follow us on Twitter for all updates. Thank you all for listening for the first 100 episodes. Only 901 to go!

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 #98 — Wings of Desire / Teenager of the Year / Cassareep / Enter Sandman / Eclipse of the Crescent Moon / Forbrydelsen (The Killing)

Wings of Desire podcast review

There are angels among us! THERE ARE ANGELS AMONG US! Sorry, I’ve been catching up with Night Vale. The Immortals are just reviewing the beautiful film Wings of Desire where an angel wishes to be human. They also listen to Frank Black, Metallica, and watch the Danish version of The Killing. (Yes, Borgen was mentioned.)
