SHYAMALAN-TOBER: The Village (2004)

EFind us at: iTunes Spotify Patreon CONTENT WARNING: Discussions of mental illness, violence, cults and harmful communal living, disabilities and neurological issues, bad depictions of mental illness, performers Joaquin Phoenix and Adrien Brody. This week in our M. Night Shyamalan series, weâre examining a film that many consider his masterpiece, but in reality is both messy and problematic. Thereâs obvious missteps with a specific character that needed far more nuance than this movie allowed. More subtly, though, the romanticism of this filmâs style confuses a haunting story, and leaves us wondering - does M. Night think this way of living is good? Healthy? Itâs hard to say, and that left at least one of us with a really bad taste in their mouth. We dive deep this week with 2004âs The Village. Macintosh & Maud have started a Patreon!

SHYAMALAN-TOBER: Unbreakable (2000)

EFind us at: iTunes Spotify Patreon CONTENT WARNING: Discussions of disabilities and disabled people, male privilege, patriarchal attitudes. This year weâre celebrating the Halloween season with a review of the films of the polarizing master (?) of suspense, M. Night Shyamalan. Shyamalanâs always been a bit of a disputed figure in movies, and his track record has been mixed, but is that just critical opinion or is it reality? Weâre starting things with a superhero movie that revels more in its mediocrity than its rich concept and film-making. Thereâs a lot that should work with this movie, but in the end weâre just left scratching our heads, and a little bored.

FEMALE DIRECTORS: Clueless (1995)

EFind us at: iTunes Spotify Patreon CONTENT WARNING: Discussions of sexual harassment, a story choice involving step-siblings being romantically involved. Weâre wrapping up our female directors series with the ur-teen comedy that helped kick off movies that defined a generation of high school teens - except maybe David, who hasnât seen any of them. Weâve tackled some big movies on that list, but possibly none more formative and important than this 1995 film from Amy Heckerling, the director of another seminal teen comedy, Fast Times at Ridgemont High. While thereâs jokes and premises that have aged very poorly, and some hit-and-miss performances, thereâs a reason this film has lasted as a new classic. And that reason is Paul Rudd. Because, I mean, itâs Paul Rudd. We discuss 1995âs Clueless this week on Macintosh & Maud Havenât Seen What?! Macintosh & Maud have started a Patreon!

FEMALE DIRECTORS: Clueless (1995)

FEMALE DIRECTORS: I Shot Andy Warhol (1996) + New Movies!

EFind us at: iTunes Spotify Patreon CONTENT WARNING: Discussions of transphobia and trans-exclusionary ideology, sexual and physical abuse, drugs, sex work, mental illness, attempted murder, shooting. This weekâs film might just be the least well-known on the list, though it packs a decent amount of creative firepower. Mary Harron helms this biopic/docudrama/ideological exploration of Valerie Solanas, creator of the S.C.U.M. (Society for Cutting Up Men) Manifesto and shooter of Andy Warhol. Originally intended as a documentary, this film has a hard time deciding whether it wants to tell a character story or examine a movement. And because Solanasâ ideology became the inspiration for a wave of violent transphobic feminist theory, the filmâs mixed messaging and muddled writing leaves us wondering, uncomfortably, whether this film actively endorses or merely wants to investigate Solanasâ ideas. Weâre going deep with the controversial and wildly unique movie, I Shot Andy Warhol. Plus, some mini-reviews of two new films - Brittany Runs a Marathon and Ad Astra!

FEMALE DIRECTORS: The Kids Are All Right (2010)

EFind us at: iTunes Spotify Patreon CW: Discussions of sperm donation, family strife, marriage, affairs, marital strife. If you remember the 2010 Oscars, you remember the giant buzz this little-indie-that-could generated. It had a powerhouse cast, relatable family struggles and dynamics, an LGBTQ+ couple presented with no real complications, and a healthy dose of humor. After all the buzz for this movie, we had high expectationsâ¦and then we actually watched it. Turns out this is a true indie mumblecore film thatâs masquerading as something bigger than it is. The writing doesnât connect these family vignettes to any real connective tissue, and the capital-T Themes it tries to touch on fall flat over and over again. This week, we review the overhyped, under-delivered The Kids Are All Right.. Plus, we give quick reviews of new releases It: Chapter Two and Hustlers!. Macintosh & Maud have started a Patreon!

FEMALE DIRECTORS: The Kids Are All Right (2010)

Monster (2003)

EFind us at: iTunes Spotify Patreon STRONG CW: Discussions of rape, child abuse, sexual abuse, violence against women, murder, mental illness, serial killers. This week, we take a hard turn into true crime with a then-rising-star Charlize Theron and true blue movie star Christina Ricci. Theron donned prosthetic makeup and a dark persona to portray Aileen Wournos, a sex worker-turned-murderer whose story is complicated, tragic, and unique in true crime. Director Patty Jenkins, who went on to helm the updated Wonder Woman (2015) does an amazing job of humanizing Wournos without excusing her crimes, and Theron and Ricci dive deep into their charactersâ inner lives. The result is a movie that, while messy and rough, packs a huge emotional punch that forces you to dig deeper than the headlines and ask, what actually drives a person to evil?

Monster (2003)

Orlando (1992) / New Movies!!

EFind us at: iTunes Spotify Patreon CONTENT WARNING: Discussions of misogyny, gender roles, gender switching. Weâre starting a new series of watching films made by female directors discussing Sally Potterâs 1992 art-house hit, Orlando. Tilda Swinton gives a tour-de-force performance as the Count Orlando, living eternally through hundreds of years of English history, first as a man, and then as a woman. Swinton is masterful in the movie, at once reserved yet also coy and sly in the camera. The movie, though, is missing some desperately needed context and plot lines, forcing us to invoke the Kubrick rule - if you need extra outside information to make your movie better, your movie might not be good. Orlando, however, is unique and interesting, and well worth your time for Swinton alone. And, maybe, just maybe, someone will make this the 6-8 episode miniseries it deserves to be. Also, weâve got new movie reviews! Because itâs been A WHILE. We have quick-hit reviews of Pokemon Detective Pikachu, The Hustle, Aladdin (2019), Rocketman, Men in Black: International, Spider-Man: Far From Home, Toy Story 4, The Farewell, Fast & Furious Presents: Hobbs & Shaw, and Dora and the Lost City of Gold.

EFind us at: iTunes Spotify Patreon CONTENT WARNING: Discussions of violence, violent masculinity, sex scenes, mention of a homophobic line used in the film. We're closing out our Summer of Swayze with quite possibly the single greatest bad movie ever made. Nine total bar fights, two smoking hot male leads, a monster truck crashing through a building, introspective male bonding and speechesâ¦this movie really does have it all. There's a reason this is now a cult classic - because despite its reputation, and despite the incredible sharpness of this movie's cheese factor, there's a pretty great movie at its core.

SUMMER OF SWAYZE: Dirty Dancing (1987)

EFind us at: iTunes Spotify Patreon CONTENT WARNING: Discussion of abortion, class issues, misogyny. This episode is a huge, epic celebration with guests Jen and Micah from I Never Saw That because a) it's David's 32nd birthday, b) it's our movie's 32nd birthday, and c) this is Jen and Micah's Patreon pick for us to watch. Oh, and this film is possibly still the best dance movie ever made. Some of it's Kenny Ortega's choreography, dripping with sex and sweat but never overt enough to raise the censor's hackles. This movie's more than that, though - there's incredibly soulful writing, gorgeous cinematography, and uncanny chemistry between Swayze and Jennifer Grey. This movie deserves its spot as a new classic, and even if it's a little muddy, it's well worth your time. AND THAT DOESN'T EVEN GET INTO THE SOUNDTRACK.

SUMMER OF SWAYZE: Red Dawn Double Feature

EFind us at: iTunes Spotify Patreon MAJOR CONTENT WARNING: This episode was recorded prior to the recent wave of shootings in Gilroy, El Paso, and Dayton, and the ensuing wave of white nationalist violence. Our discussion touches on issues of white nationalism and armed insurgency, which may be harmful to some listeners. Please stay safe and avoid this episode if you need to. This week's movie isâ¦complicated. First of all, it's a double feature that literally no one asked for, except maybe MGM needing to stay afloat. Yet more importantly, these movies were literally pieces of propaganda, sometimes unwittingly, and sometimes coldly calculated. The original film is a wild movie to watch - despite the best efforts of former Nixon staffers to infiltrate Hollywood, the arch-conservative, libertarian John Milius did his best to make an anti-war movie out of a teenage Rambo poisoned by GOP war hawks. It gets a little ridiculous after a while, but there are moments of pure genius in Milius' vision, and pitch-perfect action with some very green actors. As for the remakeâ¦well, it did a few things right, but a lot of things wrong. This week, we're tackling 1984 and 2012'sâ¦or 2009'sâ¦Red Dawn! Macintosh & Maud have started a Patreon!

Also, weâve got new movie reviews! Because itâs been A WHILE. We have quick-hit reviews of Pokemon Detective Pikachu, The Hustle, Aladdin (2019), Rocketman, Men in Black: International, Spider-Man: Far From Home, Toy Story 4, The Farewell, Fast & Furious Presents: Hobbs & Shaw, and Dora and the Lost City of Gold. Macintosh & Maud have started a Patreon! Any little bit you can contribute helps, and we have special contributor-only content if you donate at the $2 level, including an upcoming review of Patrick Swayze's surfing classic with the majestic Keanu Reeves, Point Break!

Orlando (1992) / New Movies!!

SUMMER OF SWAYZE: Road House (1989)

EFind us at: iTunes Spotify Patreon CONTENT WARNING: Discussions of violence, violent masculinity, sex scenes, mention of a homophobic line used in the film. We're closing out our Summer of Swayze with quite possibly the single greatest bad movie ever made. Nine total bar fights, two smoking hot male leads, a monster truck crashing through a building, introspective male bonding and speechesâ¦this movie really does have it all. There's a reason this is now a cult classic - because despite its reputation, and despite the incredible sharpness of this movie's cheese factor, there's a pretty great movie at its core. We finish off our series with the 1989 new classic, Road House! Macintosh & Maud have started a Patreon!

SUMMER OF SWAYZE: Road House (1989)

SUMMER OF SWAYZE: Dirty Dancing (1987)

EFind us at: iTunes Spotify Patreon CONTENT WARNING: Discussion of abortion, class issues, misogyny. This episode is a huge, epic celebration with guests Jen and Micah from I Never Saw That because a) it's David's 32nd birthday, b) it's our movie's 32nd birthday, and c) this is Jen and Micah's Patreon pick for us to watch. Oh, and this film is possibly still the best dance movie ever made. Some of it's Kenny Ortega's choreography, dripping with sex and sweat but never overt enough to raise the censor's hackles. This movie's more than that, though - there's incredibly soulful writing, gorgeous cinematography, and uncanny chemistry between Swayze and Jennifer Grey. This movie deserves its spot as a new classic, and even if it's a little muddy, it's well worth your time. AND THAT DOESN'T EVEN GET INTO THE SOUNDTRACK.

SUMMER OF SWAYZE: Dirty Dancing (1987)

SUMMER OF SWAYZE: Red Dawn Double Feature

EFind us at: iTunes Spotify Patreon MAJOR CONTENT WARNING: This episode was recorded prior to the recent wave of shootings in Gilroy, El Paso, and Dayton, and the ensuing wave of white nationalist violence. Our discussion touches on issues of white nationalism and armed insurgency, which may be harmful to some listeners. Please stay safe and avoid this episode if you need to. This week's movie isâ¦complicated. First of all, it's a double feature that literally no one asked for, except maybe MGM needing to stay afloat. Yet more importantly, these movies were literally pieces of propaganda, sometimes unwittingly, and sometimes coldly calculated. The original film is a wild movie to watch - despite the best efforts of former Nixon staffers to infiltrate Hollywood, the arch-conservative, libertarian John Milius did his best to make an anti-war movie out of a teenage Rambo poisoned by GOP war hawks. It gets a little ridiculous after a while, but there are moments of pure genius in Milius' vision, and pitch-perfect action with some very green actors. As for the remakeâ¦well, it did a few things right, but a lot of things wrong. This week, we're tackling 1984 and 2012'sâ¦or 2009'sâ¦Red Dawn! Macintosh & Maud have started a Patreon!
