About Us

Filmografun is a podcast where Genji Sato-Fraser and Scott Guy talk about every film in an actor's filmography, each movie chosen at random. We won't know what movie we're going to watch until literally two minutes before we watch it, which is actually a lot braver than it may sound. In Season 1 we dive head first into the Sandlerverse. I think we can all agree that there's a lot to love about Adam Sandler, but there's no question he's gone down a road in recent years that only the hardened Sandler fans have wanted to follow him down. A rabbit hole some might say. Scott and Genji count themselves among these hardened Sandler fans, and they are determined to burrow into this hole, get as deep down into it as it's possible to get, see what happens. Because don't forget, for every Wedding Singer, there's a Jack and Jill. For every Billy Madison, there's a Grown Ups 2. For every Happy Gilmore, there's a Ridiculous 6. Stay tuned for a new episode every Monday, cos things are gonna get weird. https://itunes.apple.com/au/podcast/filmografun-podcast/id1136074188

Episode 22 - Deuce Bigalow: Male Gigolo

This week we review the prequel to 2005's critically acclaimed (by us) Deuce Bigalow: European Gigolo. Yes that's right, we haven't released an episode in over a month, and this is how we decide to make our grand re-entrance - another fucking Rob Schneider movie. In this episode we delve deeper into the psyche of Deuce Bigalow, and ask the important questions that no other podcast dares to ask. This is one episode you can't afford to miss!

Episode 22 - Deuce Bigalow: Male Gigolo

Episode 21 - Coneheads

I bet you thought the podcast had ended, right? WRONG. After over a month of having absolutely no excuse for not releasing an episode (other than laziness), we're back with yet another movie that Adam Sandler barely appears in - the 1993 "classic", Coneheads. And let me tell you, the title isn't lying, because there are a whole bunch of people in this movie whose heads are cone shaped. I don't think there's ever been a more apt title for a film.

Episode 20 - Top Five (Feat. Lachlan Anderson)

This week we watched Top Five (2014) with friend of the show Lachlan Anderson! Top Five is a movie where Chris Rock and Rosario Dawson wander aimlessly through New York City over the course of a full day, before bumping into Adam Sandler for about two minutes. I mean this is an Adam Sandler-based podcast, so if you're looking at the movie purely through that lens, that plot synopsis is fairly accurate. If you're looking at it through a Chris Rock lens though? Well, in that case there's all sorts of shit going on!There's a whole movie's worth of interesting Chris Rock stuff going on.

Episode 19 - Men, Women and Children

In episode 19, we randomly chose the 2014 coming of age dramedy 'Men, Women and Children' - a movie basically nobody has heard of or cares about, featuring Adam Sandler in a loveless marriage, seeking out sex with a prostitute. There's also a whole lot of stuff about The Voyager Space Probe, existential dread, the insignificance of our individual lives in comparison to the grand scale of the universe, Guild Wars, and internet porn. Without spoiling anything, let me just say: this movie deserves a whole lot more than 32% on Rotten Tomatoes. Let us explain why.

Episode 19 - Men, Women and Children

Episode 18 - The Hot Chick

Episode 18, and we're thrown back into the Schneiderverse with 2002's The Hot Chick (featuring about two minutes of Dreadlocks-Sandler). So here's the deal - Rachel McAdams gets transformed into Rob Schneider (and vice versa) through some kind of ancient Egyptian magic - it's your run of the mill Freaky Friday situation. How's she gonna continue her life as a teenage girl? Is transforming into a small hairy half-Phillipino man going to negatively affect her chances of getting a date to the Prom? What about being a cheerleader, how's that gonna be a thing she can continue doing!? Look, this movie is all about the hijinks, and when Rob Schneider's involved, you know you're gonna get some top quality hijinks - as well as more than your fair share of deeply offensive moments. Enjoy the episode!

Episode 18 - The Hot Chick

Episode 17 - The Waterboy

This week we were lucky enough to be able to watch a true Sandler classic, 1998's The Waterboy. This is a fairly short episode because we recorded it on New Years Day and were pretty out of it on multiple levels due to the shenanigans of the previous night. But also, what can you even say about this movie, really? It's just a straight up good movie. It's also Genji's favourite movie of all time. We basically struck gold this episode and it was nice to sit back and relax with a Sandler movie that almost feels like an old friend. Speaking of old friends, keep an ear out at the end for a guest appearance! Also keep an ear out for the wandering cat that attempted, on multiple occasions, to step all over the keyboard and potentially ruin the recording. Keep doing what you do best, cat!

Episode 16 - Just Go With It

This week we watched Just Go With It, a movie I can only assume started out with the logline: 'Adam Sandler wants to go to Hawaii so let's make that happen somehow'. Then when they actually got around to writing the script they decided 'fuck it' and made every character's personality trait: 'lying scumbag piece of shit'. And then when they got to the third act they ran out of paper and were like 'these lying scumbag pieces of shit don't really need to learn their lesson, do they? Like they can just keep on doing bad stuff for the rest of their life, that's how story structure works isn't it?' But maybe that's a winning formula. Maybe a romantic comedy starring Adam Sandler, made in the year 2011, that has the most ridiculous premise in the world, can actually end up enjoyable. Maybe beyond all odds, this is actually a funny movie? Scott and Genji dive in and attempt to find out.

Episode 15 - Going Overboard

This week we watched Adam Sandler's first feature film, 1989's Going Overboard, which also happens to be one of (if not the lowest) rated of them all. We'd heard nothing but terrible things, and expectations were at an all time low. And without spoiling anything, I'll just say this - the movie was... different... to what we were expecting. How different? Well, Billy Zane plays King Neptune of the sea, his daughter's name is Slimey, and they end up having to fight off assassins sent by Manuel Noriega. That kinda different.

Episode 14 - Jack and Jill

Episode 14 - AKA 'The Sleepy Episode'. We recorded this episode late at night, while drunk, on very little sleep, and it definitely shows. But don't let that dissuade you from listening, because we delve very deep into the world of Jack and Jill, the 2011 film that involves WAY more Al Pacino than you would ever expect. Sandler also dresses up as a woman and plays his own twin sister, which is, well, yeah, you can guess how that turns out. What a fitting movie to finish off an absolutely terrible year (RIP David Bowie, Snape, Prince, Hillary Clinton, etc, etc). Here's to a Sandler-filled 2017! Happy new year everyone, and enjoy the episode.

Episode 13 - You Don't Mess With The Zohan (Feat. Neilesh Verma)

Episode 13! And the hiatus is officially over - this week we watch 2008's You Don't Mess With The Zohan, the film where Adam Sandler tries to solve the Israeli-Palestinian conflict by being a real good hairdresser. He also slaps a few people with his feet, and turns a few other people into human pretzels. At one point they play hackey sack with a cat. Look, it's a complicated issue. With returning guest, Neilesh Verma! Who we had to bring back, to show him what a real Sandler movie looks like.
