This week on the pod: Have you ever seen a human heart? It looks like a fist, wrapped in blood!! The guys are doing 2004’s Closer, the adaption of the play by Patrick Marber. What a delight. Clive Owen is a gleeful savage and Natalie Portman shakes off years of green-screen franchise drudgery to shine. Adultery has never been so captivating. Oh, and then James and Marco blather about the Oscars for a while at the end.
This week on the pod, Romance Month continues with Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind, the Michel Gondry/Charlie Kaufman joint from 2004. Back in the day, Kate Winslet’s Clementine raged against being a Manic Pixie Dream Girl before we even had a term for them. Has JT ever been in love? Will Marco cry? Find out! Happy Valentines Day!! XOXO
It’s Romance Month on the podcast! Kicking things off is David Fincher’s Gone Girl, starring Ben Affleck and Rosamond Pike. What a happy couple! Join us as we celebrate our crushes on Amy Dunne, praise Gillian Flynn’s writing, and dunk on Scoot McNairy.
This week on the pod, another 1999 classic: Cruel Intentions. Marco and James reminisce about that halcyon era when Joshua Jackson kept showing up in supporting roles with bleached hair, and Sarah Michelle Gellar shocked us all with a decidedly un-Buffy villainous turn in the adaptation of Les Liaisons dangereuses. Also, Ryan Phillippe is here, stealing Hayden Christensen’s lunch money. Plus, some spoilery talk at the end about 2019’s Serenity.
This week on the pod, an old teen classic from the end of the last millennium: 10 Things I Hate About You! You guys voted for it, and we watched it. Time travel with us, back to a land of ska bands, Nice Guys, crazy high school stadiums, and paintball make out sessions.
Happy Festivus, bitches. This week on the pod, we’re celebrating the holidays by watching the anti-Christmas film Batman Returns. Raquel Miranda joins us as we break down the weird Tim Burton aesthetic, Selina Kyle’s apartment, the Penguin’s awfulness, and whether or not Bruce Wayne can get it.
This week on the podcast, Marco and James are revisiting an old favorite: Robin Hood: Prince of Thieves. We’ve both loved this movie since we saw it as kids, and have a great time returning to Sherwood Forest with Kevin Costner’s non-existent accent, Morgan Freeman being awesome, and Alan Rickman hamming it up all over the place.
We started this podcast off with eight straight Harry Potter movies, so I guess we have to do Fantastic Beasts: The Crimes of Grindelwald too. Ehh. What a mess. Please join Marco and JT as they rant about all the incredibly dumb things in this movie — and especially Credence, who sucks. JK Rowling: we know you can do better. David Yates: we know you can’t, get lost.

This week on the pod, James and Marco are joined by Kaitlin Reilly of the Riverdale Register podcast to talk about the new Netflix series Chilling Adventures of Sabrina (18:20). Some of us liked it more than others. Marco is obsessed with Madam Satan, James would rather watch a show about Totally Rad Gay Warlock Undertaker Ambrose, and Kaitlin is here for soft boi Harvey Kinkle. Also discussed: a little bit on You and Halloween, and what we’re watching/reading/listening to lately (6:05).

This week on the pod, an absolute classic: Clue! (18:32) This is a movie James and Marco unapologetically love, so prepare yourself for a lot of gushing and quotes. JT also talks about his new video game Spider-Man (4:53), and the guys discuss what they’re watching, listening to and reading (8:56). At the end of the pod, we do some fantasy casting for a Clue reboot (1:25:10), which we both agree probably shouldn’t happen.
This week (month?) on the pod, Marco and …not Benji (00:45) return to talk about Hailee Stanfield in The Edge of Seventeen (15:11). Also on the pod, our media diets (02:41), and what JT and Marco watch on Youtube (1:30:07).
Headcanon is back from hiatus to talk about the Netflix romantic comedy, To All the Boys I’ve Loved Before… based on the novel by Jenny Han. And we’re joined by friend of the pod Krystal Pearson. We all really liked it. Also, this is a really filthy episode. You’ve been warned.
The guys just went to see Mission: Impossible - Fallout in the theater and we are hype. After a brief discussion of our media diet (02:39), the guys dive in to the latest installment in the M:I franchise (11:18), which just might be the best. We talk the incredible stunts, the insane set pieces, the surprising drama, and the weird quiet morality at the heart of this film. If you like action/spy movies: go see this.
This week on the pod, a little Sharp Objects conversation at the start (don’t worry, no book spoilers) before we cover some of the recent big trailers at San Diego Comic-Con. And then, a big discussion of a movie Marco and Benji both love, Mission Impossible: Ghost Protocol. The guys talk the IMF team dynamic, the insanity of Ethan Hunt, favorite set pieces, Bad Robot fingerprints, and all the gonzo stunts.
This week on the pod, Marco and Benji take a little time to talk about Skyscraper (01:28), and the current state of The Rock and his movies. Then we get to our main event, Terminator 2: Judgement Day (13:02). What a delightfully violent thrill-ride.
This week on the podcast, Marco and Benji talk a little Sharp Objects (02:20), and a little Ant Man and The Wasp (10:35) before diving into the main discussion, 1975’s Jaws (15:12). We both really like this movie and had a great time talking about the shark, the mayor, the dumb subplots that got cut from the book, and the escalating masculinity brinksmanship one they get on the boat.
This week on the pod: which Skywalker bro has the most game? (01:35) Also, Benji and Marco discuss what they’re watching, listening too and reading (08:00) before moving on to the main topic, Netflix’s Set It Up (14:30), starring Zoey Deutch and Finnegan from Everybody Wants Some!! Spoilers: we like Zoey.
After some brief discussion (01:46) of Hereditary, Death Cab For Cutie, Westworld and Oceans 8 (14:02), Benji and Marco settle in to talk about The Boy Next Door (25:24), a 2015 film staring Karate Jake and J-Lo. It’s real bad. Sorry.
