As 2016 breathes its final gasps David, Ron, and a special guest talk Star Wars Episode VII and Rogue One. Some holiday movies are mentioned and - oh yeah - we figured we'd try for three weeks of La La Land talk in a row.
Join us for our holiday spectacular! There's even singing! (We're sorry). Ron and David talk Holiday Inn and White Christmas, Ron saw La La Land, and David weighs in on Heavy Weights (See what I did there? David - you're writing these from now on).
David and special guest Reid profess their love for Die Hard, and Ron talks virtual reality (and also professes a little love for Die Hard, just slightly less so).
We saw Rogue One and then sat in a parking lot and recorded our thoughts. Join us for our very first Instant-Take episode!
Ron and David realize When Harry Met Sally might not be as "Christmas adjacent" as they thought, Ron joins the "I Saw Moana" party, and David re-watched Just Friends.
David and Ron gush over their first "Christmas adjacent" film: Billy Wilder's "The Apartment." And it's that time of year again - when there are more good movies in theater than anyone can possibly see (but Ron and David do their best to cover some of the hits).
David, Ron, and special guest Evan Brown discuss the first foreign film covered on the podcast: the family friendly* Japanese film Lala Pipo. Evan talks about the movies he saw this week ('cause Ron and David slacked off).
*Not actually family friendly
David and Ron discuss a movie that's even more quotable than this podcast (Sweet Smell of Success), Ron saw a couple of new releases, and David weighs in on an absolute classic (Mr. Mom)
Ron and David defend one of Pixar's most maligned films, Ron saw one of the best picture category's frontrunners (Moonlight), and ... Basically all you need to know is this turned into our Pixar Mega Episode. We probably should have lead with that, huh?
Ron and David talk about Mean Girls and relive their glory days (last Tuesday through Thursday), and Ron doesn't have particularly strong feelings for The Girl on the Train (the movie, that is).
Keep an eye out for our spin-off podcast: Our Friends: The Anthology! Airing Sunday evenings, we watch and discuss an episode from an anthology show each week. First up? Amazing Stories, Season 1: Episode 1 - Ghost Train.
Ron and David talk in depth about Stephen King's IT, go over two Tales from the Crypt episodes, and make a very special announcement! (It's a girl!!)
Our Tales from the Crypt discussion goes from 13:29 - 32:36 (Whoops!). Please feel free to skip it if you haven't seen the two episodes (Abra Cadaver and Maniac at Large). Or if you don't want The Usual Suspects spoiled (at around 29:55).
The Halloween celebration continues with Ron and David throwing their VHS collections in the trash after watching The Ring (2002). David talks Central Intelligence, and the guys disagree on Mr. Robot. The Tales from the Crypt episode Death of Some Salesman is also discussed in the show's very first double digit episode!
Ron and David revisit their childhood Halloween guilty pleasures and discover that some things are better left buried. Hocus Pocus fails to cast a spell on them, and Casper lacks substance.
NOTE: Discussion of the Tales from the Crypt episode goes from around 13:00 - 21:40. If you haven't seen the episode - feel free to skip the conversation as it gets pretty convoluted if you haven't seen the episode Two for the Show.
It's October, and David and Ron kick off the Halloween celebration by watching Young Frankenstein (1974) and a Tales from the Crypt episode. David provides a retrospective on Gene Wilder's career that's robust enough to get you college credit, and Ron saw Saw.
David and Ron are joined by special guest Daniel Tobin to discuss Diner (1982). Ron is letdown by The Magnificent Seven (2016), and the guys debut a new game. Green Room, Popstar, and Oceans Eleven (2001) come up as well, and David proves he's seen a movie that came out within the past decade!
David... Ron... Singing?! The first musical of the podcast is discussed. Ron shows off his singing chops. David spares listeners from his. Plus some stuff about Blair Witch and Sully.
This week David teases Ron for liking the Time Traveler's Wife (the movie and the person) before Ron waxes poetic about the bat-nipples in Batman Forever. American History X, The Fugitive, and Sully also come up.
In the fourth episode of "Our Friends Said They'd Listen" David, Ron, and Guest David lovably bumble their way through Spies Like Us (1985). Other movies discussed include: Kubo and the Two Strings, The Light Between Oceans, and Mechanic Resurrection.
In the third episode of "Our Friends Said They'd Listen" two pretty calm dudes discuss 12 Angry Men (1957), and the other films they've watched this week, including The Age of Adaline, The Age of Adaline, and 2015 masterpiece The Age of Adaline.
In the second episode of “Our Friends Said They’d Listen” David and Ron trust that their friends are listening (they’re not) and talk about movies they saw that week before comparing 1959’s Ben-Hur to its 2016 counterpart.
In the very first episode(!) of "Our Friends Said They'd Listen" David and Ron tackle recent movies like Sausage Party, Suicide Squad, the video game No Man's Sky. Then we explore in-depth 1982’s Poltergeist and the controversy surrounding it.
