We watched Saw II this week, and recorded a magnificent episode about it. Then, our software crashed, the episode was lost, and we recorded a regular episode instead. We also eat our steak, and our words, very strangely.
We were promised an action movie and instead we were given a slow progression of camera and editing experiments. Man On Fire let us down and we struggled to find much to say about it. So naturally we skirt around the film as much as possible and try to come up with plot ideas that would make this movie actually good.
The gods of random number generators gave us a Brad Pitt double feature this week, so Jen can finally put a face to the name. We started with Ocean's Eleven and ended with Interview With The Vampire. Despite the popularity of both of these, neither one of us had seen them before now. Will we drag these films through the mud like so many others before them? Or will one or both of these movies surprise and charm us? Tune in to find out - but you probably already know the answer.
Welcome to our first "trailer" style episode! It's short and sweet and tells you which movies we've picked for the next two episodes, so you have time to watch them before those episodes get released. I mean, if that's what you're into. Let us know whether you like having these as separate little mini-episodes, or if there is a different format you would prefer.
Join us on our jubilant return from brief hiatus, as we try to describe a movie we barely watched. This time we watched 2009's "9" but we only spend about half the episode talking about it and the rest is all regular shenanigans.
We don't know if this episode sucks or not, but we sure had a good time recording it, if you catch our drift. We discuss land surveying, pickup lines, and the movie we sort of watched, 2007's Music and Lyrics. Mercifully, this particular DVD skipped and we missed a solid 30 or 40 minutes, but somehow we still got the main point which was that pop music is incredibly easy to write. So much so that we use a random song lyric generator to create a Mad Libs version of a One Direction song.
Whoo! What a ride we took on this one! This double feature starts in a simpler time, the 80's, when every teenager had a large tree right outside their window for convenient escapes. We watched Girls Just Want To Have Fun and one of us had significantly more fun than the other. Then we took a sharp left turn and watched Splice, which leaves us with a lot of important ethical questions such as "is it cheating if you fuck a half-clone of your significant other?"
We are so glad that the random number generator chose a good movie for us this time. The Disappearance of Alice Creed managed to keep Jen's attention throughout the entire film, which is a pretty rare feat. We also discussed Dark Pheonix and Ma, even though they're not part of our 3120 DVD bulk purchase. Sometimes you just gotta watch other stuff too.
