All in Drama

Episode 158 - Dial M For Murder

This week, we watch the classic Alfred Hitchcock adaptation of the stage play about organizing and attempting the murder of a cheating wife. Great acting and fun plot twists keep this film entertaining throughout, which is a feat, given that the film takes place almost entirely in just one room. And we hope you like dialogue. Dial M For Murder, directed by Alfred Hitchcock.

Episode 159 - Gone With The Wind

This week, we watch the longest film of all!  The highest grossing movie of all time (adjusted for inflation) is ripe with questionable content, with the racism being the worst offender.  This might always be considered a classic, but should it be? Gone With The Wind (1939), directed by Victor Fleming.

Episode 164 - Come and See

This week, we watch the hard to find Russian classic that has influenced movies such as Schindler's List, Saving Private Ryan, and Inglorious Bastards. Real artillery, bombs, animal deaths, and human emotions are put fourth on screen to create something horrifying and unlike anything else we've seen. Come and See (1985), directed by Elem Klimov.

Episode 166 - No Country For Old Men

This week, we watch the movie that features the creepiest haircut ever to grace the silver screen.  One man finds a bag of money in a drug deal gone wrong.  The haircut then proceeds to murder everyone in its path on its quest to retrieve the money.  The FBI agent from The Fugitive is on the case.  No Country For Old Men (2007), directed by Joel and Ethan Coen.

BONUS EPISODE! Avengers: Infinity War

This week, we give you a bonus episode!  Since Captain America: Civil War episode lined up so perfectly to the same week as the opening of the new Avengers movie, we decided we'd all go to the theater and see what all the fuss is about.  VERY SPOILER FILLED EPISODE.  See this awesome movie and listen to our take on it. Avengers: Infinity War (2018), directed by Anthony Russo and Joe Russo.

Episode 169 - Mary and Max

This week, we watch the Australian stop-motion film that is a follow up to the Oscar winning animated short, Harvey Krumpet.  Mary is a young girl from Melbourne who is lonely and unloved.  Max is a middle-aged man from New York who is overweight and has Aspergers. The two write to each other and become friends, in what is one of the most unique movies on this list. Mary and Max (2009), directed by Adam Elliot.

Episode 170 - Gone Girl

This week, we watch the twist laden thriller, based on the hugely popular Gillian Flynn book.  Fincher's style seeps into this film, who is lead by Ben Affleck, but stolen by Rosamund Pike. And if you think you might be watching a bloodless Fincher movie two hours into this 2.5 hour film, you will be proven very wrong. Gone Girl (2014), directed by David Fincher.

Episode 174 - Rush

This week, we watch the incredible true story of Niki Lauda and James Hunt, two formula one racers who's rivalry in the 1976 World Championship gained the attention of the world.  While the film may have taken some liberties with the relationship between Niki and James, the movie aims to remain true to the real happenings of the season, and largely succeeds.  Rush (2013), directed by Ron Howard. 

Episode 177 - Hotel Rwanda

This week, we watch the film that portrays the historical events of the Rwandan Genocide through the story of a hotel manager who protected over 1,000 refugees in the midst of the massacre.  Don Cheadle portrays Paul Rusesabagina, a man who risked his family members lives, as well as his own, to save innocent lives in a performance that will most likely continue to define his career.  Hotel Rwanda (2004), directed by Terry George.
