Please join agents of chaos Marco and James as we dive into the middle film of The Dark Knight Trilogy (8:12). Bad joker impressions and plot dissections abound, but let’s be clear: we love this movie. The Dark Knight is somehow convoluted and absurd and also a masterpiece that defined a decade, even if the plot doesn’t make any sense.
This week on the podcast, we start our discussion of The Dark Knight Trilogy with Batman Begins (14:19). Listen for our bad Bane impressions, our worse Michael Caine impressions, and our general gushing over Christian Bale’s Bruce Wayne. Other topics include: is Batman a virgin? How did Bruce have enough money to buy his own company? Why do you have to lie down inside the Bat Tumbler to fire its missiles? Also, some light Veronica Mars Season 4 spoilers up front (01:49), so fair warning.
Marco and JT return to talk the pinnacle of 90s macho bullshit with Point Break (17:07). Gary Busey is an animal, Lori Petty awoke something within us, and Johnny Utah and Bodhi spoke to us, man. This movie rules.
This week on Headcanon, Marco and JT celebrate Independence Day by looking back 30 years to the legendarily so-bad-it’s-good film Road House (16:11). Dive into this problematic fave and learn about coolers, wholesale liquor distribution, the fragrance of nature, and Sam Elliott’s pubes.
This week on the pod: MASSIVE SPOILERS!! We’re talking Game of Thrones s08e03 “The Long Night” and Avengers: Endgame. We’re all full of hot takes on Arya, Jon, Dany, Tony, Cap, Nat, Gendry, Jaime, Nebula, Rhodey, Rocket, Melisandre, Grey Worm, Jorah, Tormund, The Night King, Thanos, Thor and a hundred other characters featured in last weekend’s geek-pocalypse.
Blue Valentine is definitely a feel bad movie of the year. Yikes. What a great hang this Ryan Gosling, Michelle Williams joint is. The boyfriend from Roma has a challenger for worst BF ever. Join the guys as they discuss this expertly-crafted, incredibly unpleasant movie. Old Joel from Eternal Sunshine doesn’t seem so bad anymore.
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.
