All in Drama

Episode 151 - Gran Torino

This week, we watch Clint Eastwood point his gun shaped hand at some thugs to protect his neighbors. What was suppose to be his acting send off (only to come back to acting a few years later), he brings his classic snarl and anger to the role of Walt Kowalski. Gran Torino (2008), directed by Clint Eastwood.

Episode 153 - The Deer Hunter

This week, we watch the best picture winning film that made a huge positive shift in the public opinion towards Vietnam Veterans in the US. This film takes something that didn't occur once in the written history of the Vietnam war (Russian roulette), center's itself around it, and makes a grand, metaphorical statement about the random violence of war. The Deer Hunter (1978), directed by Michael Cimino.

Episode 154 - Trainspotting

This week, we watch the film that takes the displays drug use from an honest, hilarious, and brutal perspective. Ewen McGregor plays Renton, our not-so-humble narrator, that stylishly guides us through the lives of a group of Edinburgh heroin addicts. Trainspotting (1996), directed by Danny Boyle.

Episode 156 - Fargo

This week, we watch the snowy, bloody, accent-heavy crime film set in rural Minnesota. This movie is equal parts hilarious and terrifying, and is frequently both at the same time. Is this one of the Coen brothers best films? Oh yah, you betcha. Fargo (1996), directed by Joel and Ethan Coen.

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.
