029 Frankenstein and Me (1996)

EAfter last week's clunker in Nothing Too Good for a Cowboy, we needed something strong to close out the regular run of #BoyfriendMaterial, and we found exactly what we needed in Frankenstein and Me. Before we officially announce the Gossies, count down our favorite Ryan Gosling movies, and burn through a clip show episode, we're headed all the way back to 1996, where a fresh-faced Ryan Gosling was already wooing the ladies with his great hair and killer smile. He isn't the star of Frankenstein and Me, but that doesn't matter. In the end, this is a very sweet and charming kids movie (that still plays well today), and he's great as the best friend of the lead character. From the time he rolls on screen on his bicycle to when he helps try to bring a monster (back?) to life -- and in every classic horror film recreation in between -- Gosling is a star in the making. Also, Burt Reynolds is in this.

028 Nothing Too Good for a Cowboy (1998)

ENothing Too Good for a Cowboy isn't Ryan Gosling's worst movie, but it's certainly one of his most uneventful. When we tore through Zac Efron's early work on #ZacAttack, we reveled in finding madness in his early movies. While we've found some of those gems in Gosling's early movies, this one grinded us to a nearly screeching halt. The most surprising thing about Nothing Too Good for a Cowboy is the creative team that put this together... or maybe it's the fact that this movie became a TV show that ran for 26 episodes over two years, and neither of us had heard of it... or maybe that's it's a western set in the in-between era of 1939-1945, where westerns don't normally exist, and which should make it feel unique, but it only makes it feel a bit too modern... or maybe it's...

026 Young Hercules (1998)

EBefore Ryan Gosling was Neil Armstrong, before he was Seb, before he was the Driver, he was Young Hercules. For fifty. Episodes. Of. Television. Made more than 20 years ago and in no way designed to be binged, Young Hercules perpetuates the same story, over and over again, for roughly 17 hours of runtime. Joey saved Joe Two the gauntlet of this watch, hand-picking the series' six best and wildest episodes to discuss on the podcast. They talk about Ryan Gosling's "fire inside," his portrayal of "Dark Hercules" in a dream episode, and his ability to rock out on a lyre. Joey also recaps the best moments that Joe Two didn't sit through, and the two lament that every episode winds up being the same thing: Gosling and his two doofus friends being chased around and tricked by Ares, Discord, and Strife, all set to far too many sound effects.

025 Remember the Titans (2000)

EWe are the Titans! Mighty, mighty Titans! Two episodes after talking about Ryan Gosling as QB in The Slaughter Rule, it's time for him to flip to the other side of the ball and line up on defense in Remember the Titans. In this episode, we talk about Gosling getting burnt over and over again in coverage, what position he's best suited for, and what this movie could look like if he played the role of Sunshine.

024 The Believer (2001)

EConsidering how incredible Ryan Gosling is in the Believer, it's not too hard to realize why talking about a Neo-Nazi in 2019 isn't a fun topic. We give it the old college try anyway as we admire Gosling's ability to speak Hebrew and his absolute dedication to the portrayal of this conflicted man. Also, Joey pitches a comedy sketch idea inspired by this movie, just to make sure this episode's tone isn't somber from start to finish.

023 The Slaughter Rule (2002)

ERyan Gosling diehards know he'd star in a football movie in Remember the Titans (coming up in two episodes), but did you know he stepped up to QB in The Slaughter Rule? In this episode, we learn that one of the Joes really connected with the movie, while the other didn't. They debate whether the well-acted movie is too shallow in other regards, whether we've seen this type of story before, and whether enough was done with storylines and relationships outside of the Gosling/David Morse centerpiece.

022 Murder by Numbers (2002)

EIt’s right there in the title, but it’s still a bit of a surprise that Murder by Numbers is our second “Ryan Gosling as a murderer” movie in a row. It’s clear now that by the time he’d go on to portray Robert Durst, Ryan Gosling had quite the history of cinematic murders under his belt. In this episode, we talk about the film’s astronomical budget (despite its made-for-TV look) and its legendary cinematographer (you’ll never believe who it is!). We also talk about what may be the greatest Ryan Gosling moment in a movie to date, his portrayal as a cool high school kid, and his burgeoning romance with Sandra Bullock. It’s hard to say whether or not Murder by Numbers is a good movie, but after last week’s mixed bag in The United States of Leland, it’s difficult to go anywhere but up.

021 The United States of Leland (2003)

ESeveral episodes ago (or several years from now, in a normal, non-podcast timeline), Ryan Gosling played a murderer in (essentially) Robert Durst. The United States of Leland shows where murdering Gosling got his start. (Or does it? Is there more murder in Gosling's career? We'll find out together!) In this episode, we discuss the tender side of Gosling as a misunderstood murderer, the sadness of his eyes under that floppy head of hair, and the veritable "who's who" of actors who would go on to become stars. We also reflect back on our guesses for this movie's most and least #BoyfriendMaterial moments and wonder if we came anywhere close to the truth. As we enter the home stretch of #BoyfriendMaterial, there's very little charted waters ahead of us. What will the next nine episodes hold for us? Hopefully, more Gosling as a murderer!

020 The Notebook (2004)

EThe Notebook has been the White Whale of #BoyfriendMaterial. From the very beginning of the podcast, Joey has been looking forward to finally watching what may be *the* Ryan Gosling movie, while Joe Two counted down the days until they got to talk about it. The time has finally come, after the Joes watched it together and recorded live in-person. Did Joey like it? Did he cry? Was the movie worth the wait? Listen and find out!

EWe've had a good run on #BoyfriendMaterial so far, but we were bound to hit a clunker sooner or later, which we did with Stay. While it's not a completely terrible movie -- and Joey doesn't regret calling it the worst movie he saw all year -- its smug confidence in how cool it is makes this the worst Ryan Gosling movie to date. In this episode, we talk about the incredibly stacked cast, wonder where it all went wrong, and try to imagine a version of this movie directed by David Fincher. (Spoiler: it's this movie, but good.)
