The Irishman (2019)

The Irishman (2019)

Once Upon A Time In Hollywood (2019)

Two podcasts published in one week? Christmas has come early this year! Not for the squeamish, but perhaps not as Tarantino-ish as expected, Once Upon A Time In Hollywood is one of the most interesting films of 2019. A love letter to film and friendship, it is a nostalgic (and self-referential) leisurely and vulgar stroll through an alternate history of the Manson Family murders and old Hollywood with stellar performances throughout. We explore the scenes and themes - and stay tuned for my particularly crazy read at the end. As always, intro and outro music is Wastecnology by Jahzzar,Betterwithmusic, CC BY-SA.

Once Upon A Time In Hollywood (2019)

Belated Comic-Movie Talk

Just in time for the Avengers: Endgame blu-ray release, and not a moment sooner, I have revived from a movie-talk coma to discuss Avengers: Endgame (and Captain Marvel as a prelude) with the great Bo Bonner of Iowa Catholic Radio. I will soon be back with Once Upon a Time in Hollywood, so stay tuned and enjoy! As always, intro and outro music is Wastecnology by Jahzzar,Betterwithmusic, CC BY-SA. Photo fair usefromWikipedia.

Remakes, Sequels, Avengers, and the Uncommon Good

I'm alive - real life has hurt my ability to watch the movies, but I am still here for you, trust me! Recently, I once again suckeredBo Bonner and Dr. Bud Marr ofThe Uncommon Goodon Iowa Catholic Radio (heard on 1150 AM, 88.5 FM, and 94.5 FM) to have me on. We started with a lengthy discussion on the value and importance of art, why our entertainment culture is preoccupied with remakes and "sequelitis", and our thoughts on Avengers Endgame and the best movies of the past year. For the convenience of my legions of fans, they have also graciously allowed me to post the entire hour-long show here on my feed. Enjoy, and look for a new episode next week!

The Ballad of Buster Scruggs (2018)

Professor Bo Bonner makes his long-awaited return to the podcast to discuss the considerable merits of the fantastic new Netflix-produced Western anthology film from the beloved Coen Brothers, The Ballad of Buster Scruggs. Star-studded and varied, the six stories come together in thematically meaningful ways. To say it is one of the very best films of the year is an understatement - but listen to find out why.

Doubt (2008)

TheTimMan triumphantly returns to discuss the thought-provoking, challenging 2008 film Doubt, starring Philip Seymour Hoffman, Meryl Streep, and Amy Adams. Concerning the relationship between a priest suspected of abuse and the faithful under his care, the film could not be more timely in terms of subject-matter. We delve into the intent of the filmmakers, how the movie plays objectively, and even the comfort the film can give us during these difficult times in the Church. Plus, my wife saw the movie (and liked it?). Enjoy! As always, intro and outro music is Wastecnology by Jahzzar,Betterwithmusic, CC BY-SA. Photo fair usefromWikipedia.

Doubt (2008)

Eighth Grade/Searching (2018)

The Catholic Movie Guy is back with a vengeance discussing two new films that, in their own way, address the good and bad of our modern, social-media infatuated world. Come for my thoughts, stay for the cameo of the Catholic Movie Gal! Also: I will be appearing on Covenant Radio in St. Louis this Friday at 2 pm on their Fall Catholic Radiothon, so please call or give on Friday at 2! Enjoy!

Metropolitan (1990)

Sorry, ya'll - Jeff Sessions has kept me real busy lately. But, because it has been a while, I have decided to release an episode from the vault for the masses. Witness the triumphant return of TheTimMan to the podcast discussing one of his (and my) favorite films, the 1990 Whit Stillman masterpiece, Metropolitan. Plus, my wife gives her thoughts. Enjoy!

Poker and the Movies

Sorry for the delay, all - I will be getting to some of the newer summer films next week (including Incredibles 2, which I really liked) with the help of the steadfast Bo Bonner. But this week, with the World Series of Poker taking place as we speak, I am joined on this very special episode by Joe Kenney of Jonose Cigars to discuss poker, life, and the best poker movies of all time. I think there's much to interest even the non-poker fan in the discussion. Hope you enjoy! As always, intro and outro music is Wastecnology by Jahzzar,Betterwithmusic, CC BY-SA.
