12 men enter a small room to decide the fate of a man on trial. For Let’s Take Five, two men walk into a decently sized apartment in Chicago to decide the fate of the fate of a man on trial. The guys dive into the Sidney Lumet masterpiece in how it treats mob mentality, personal prejudice and the ideal justice system. Get excited!
At any given moment, one of the Immortals are pulling a long con on the other one. (For example, Austin tricked them to do a 20 year podcast.) So everyone related really well to the Preston Sturges comedy, The Lady Eve. They also listened to Johnny Cash recording an album in prison, The Drifters walking down a street and one British man’s take on all of civilization. I’m sure that won’t go horribly wrong. Plus more True Crime Gays and finding out what’s on Pedro’s Chrome tabs! Get excited!
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?
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!
Fiction can be serve as a mirror to look back at ourselves or it can be used to make a world dramatically different than what we experience. The closer you get to reality, the more unnerving the experience can be. A fear I have is to have my fate be decided by twelve strangers. Just like we want for our President or teachers, we want the jury to be smartest set of 12 people that ever were assembled, because it’s your life on the line.
