The Decade's Best: Martha Marcy May Marlene

EThe Decade’s Best Podcast is back again, this time looking at Sean Durkin’s feature debut, Martha Marcy May Marlene. This Elizabeth Olsen starer is a dive into post-traumatic stress, cults, Manson like figures and the trouble with having a sister. Taught and driven by paranoia, MMMM still sings all these years later, making me more anxious for Durkin’s return behind the camera next year. Download. Listen. Enjoy! 0:01:00 Discussing A Great Year In Movies 2011, Great Cast 0:10:00 Manson Vibes, Masterful Filmmaking, Elizabeth Olsen! 0:18:00 Two Extremes, John Hawkes And The Cult, Phonecalls 0:30:00 A Theory On The Ending @middleofrow #nothe

The Decade's Best: 127 Hours

EThe Decade’s Best is back! I’m going to pump out the last couple of podcasts we have in the bank for this, as well as publish my big list, so lets make this happen! Grant and I discuss 127 Hours this week, the Danny Boyle docudrama starring James Franco. The film still works, but does it work well enough to make it onto the list of the Decade's Best?

Shine On, Doctor Sleep

EAnother Stephen King adaptation, another review on Middle of the Row: The Podcast. This week, it’s The Shining Sequel, Doctor Sleep! I lot of praise around here for this one, but sadly we feel like the only ones. Rebecca Ferguson, Obi-Wan Kanobi, The Shining! What’s not to like. We have a lot of fun hashing this one out, disagreements on how it all works, and, I think, get the story straight on what the hell happened in all the versions of this story in film and literary form. So, come have a listen, it’s a good one! Download. Listen. Enjoy! 0:01:00 Spoiler Free Thoughts On Doctor Sleep 0:20:42 Spoilers For Doctor Sleep 0:21:00 The Gotcha Scene, Comparing The Books And The Movies, Quibbles 0:30:00 Praise For Little Things, Blending The Books And Movies 0:39:00 Homages, Theorizing Danny’s Death, Hansel & Gretel: Witch Hunter Diversion 0:49:00 That Scene, Next Week Ramblings @middleofrow #nothe

Terminator: Dark Fate Can't Change Its Own

EThis week we, finally, watch a new release, Terminator: Dark Fate! This film has bombed and left most theaters by now, but our conversation on this one might be one of our most lively and fun conversations. Ben is a BIG fan, Lauren and Zac are not, but it works well for our discussion as we bounce back and forth with ease. So join us for one last trip down Terminator lane, as we might not see another entry in this franchise for some time. Download. Listen.

Seriously A Serious Man?

EThis week we flashback to 2009 for some Coen Brothers with A Serious Man! one of Zac’s favorites from the duo, nobody else is really on board? Jon has a lot to say but falls somewhere between Ben and Lauren, who weren’t fans. I think I coax out some appreciation where I can, but chalk this up as another Zac classic that no one else is down with. Oh well, I try... Download. Listen.

Make Time For Micmacs

EThis week we flash back to 2009 for the Jean-Pierre Jeunet film, Micmacs. His follow up to Amélie and A Very Long Engagement didn’t gain the stateside traction that those films did, but it stuck in Lauren’s memory from way back when. Packed full of beautiful images, lovely music and whimsy, Micmacs, at its best, sings. At its worst, it feels like it could have gone deeper. Still, Junet executes what he’s going for here, and you will be hard pressed to find many films more charming; unless you can’t handle shenanigans. Download. Listen. Enjoy! 0:01:00 Why Micmacs?, Silent Influences, More Backstory 0:09:00 The Good In People, Lauren Keeps Finding Reasons To Like Less 0:15:00 Yeah, More Backstory; Favorite Bits; Some Praise For The Cast 0:20:00 Favs And Missed Opportunities @middleofrow #nothe
