Episode #134 — The Wizard of Oz / Caetano Veloso / I Fall to Pieces / The Prisoner

Sorry, we’re late but we were blown away from Kansas and this guy with a balloon took forever to offer us a ride. In a weird coincidence, we all reviewed The Wizard of Oz! We also listened to the Brazilian legend Caetano Veloso, we appreciated the return of Patsy Cline and then we told everyone around us that WE ARE NOT A NUMBER.

Episode #133 — Los Olvidados / Histoire de Melody Nelson / I’d Rather Go Blind / Saturday Night Live

TAPED FROM CHICAGO IT’S THE IMMORTALS! We start the show from the poverty of Mexico City with Luis Bunuel’s Los Olvidados, move on to the grosses realms of France with Serge Gainsbourg, return to America with Etta James (and briefly Beyonce) only to end the long journey at 30 Rock with the still running Saturday Night Live. Settle in, it’s a doozy of an episode!

Episode #132 — Doctor Zhivago / Ambient 1: Music for the Airport / (Don’t Fear) the Reaper / Quantum Leap

Doctor Zhivago podcast review

Get your coat we’re going on a train ride! That’s the tone of this movie right? The gang are following the epic tale of Doctor Zhivago through different Russian revolutions. After that tension, they calm down with the soothing sounds of Brian Eno and then all the tension returned as they argued about the title of (Don’t Fear) the Reaper. Then much like Sam, Austin leaped alone. Stay tuned to hear J.C. try to quit the show!

Episode #131 — La Strada / Roxy Music / Hey Jude / Fantasy Island

La Strada podcast review

This is a big episode because J.C. joins The Immortals! They are in for a big episode as the gang watches another Fellini film, listen to even more glam rock, and travel to Fantasy Island. Also Pedro may actually be forced to admit that The Beatles are good after listening to Hey Jude.

Catching Up with Pedro!

In this short casual barely-edited mostly-silly bonus episode, Sarah and Austin chat with Pedro about what he was up to during his two-week absence. They hear about his new pop culture love, hear his thoughts on the movies he missed and they review two new songs. Come back next week for our next proper episode with…..our new co-host! Get excited!

NOTE: We do spoil The Ox-Bow Incident.

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 #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!

Episode #125 — Good Bye Lenin! / Rejoicing in the Hands / Habshi Halwa / Todo cambia / Orange is the New Black

Good Bye Lenin podcast review

And we’re back! Yes, we’ve been back for a few weeks now, but here’s our first recorded episode after the hiatus. And we’re here to discuss everyone’s favorite dark German comedy from the past decade, Good Bye Lenin! They also listen to the smooth sounds of┬áDevendra Banhart and Mercedes Sosa. Sarah loses her mind over Habshi Halwa and we talk about the best and worst aspects of Netflix’s Orange is the New Black. Also we have dumb new drops! Get excited!

Episode #124 — The Godfather / Double Nickels on the Dime / Escargot de Bourgogne / Ace of Spades / Little Dieter Learns to Fly

The Godfather podcast review

This week on The Immortals, the gang reviews The Godfather. HAVE YA HEARD OF IT? They discuss whether or not one of the most beloved films of all time is any good. They also listen to some Minutemen and Motorhead as well as watch a Werner Herzog documentary about a POW. Get excited!
