About Us

Dan and Raul (and sometimes friends!) are visual media enthusiasts who enjoy discussions on current and old movies and tv shows. Listen to us casually debate, pontificate, correlate and appreciate whatever comes to mind related to watching stuff.

Latest Episodes

#56 - Away (S01E01) / Woke (S01E01-03)

EDan and Raul discuss 2 brand new shows, one that just premiered on Netflix called, Away, and the other, a new Hulu offering entitles, Woke. Away, is a space drama that both guys had issues with but will continue to watch and see how it progresses. And similar feelings can be said about, Woke, as it doesn't establish a clear vision for what it wants to say about race relations/biases in America, mixing a sometimes confusing blend of sitcom and dramatic tropes, but there are some creative flourishes that make it worth a watch.

#55 - Peacock

EThe guys discuss the newest streaming service, Peacock, the new platform put forth by NBC-Universal, which offers a strange mix of old school scrolling-style live TV based on only NBC-Universal content, a "Trending" section (we discuss the failure of this and how it could be better), and "Browse" that contains all the shows and movies that should be the focus of the service. There is some criticism to be had, but we do cover a ton of upcoming shows that are coming in the next year as well.

#53 - Lovecraft Country (Episode 1)

EDan and Raul tackle the first episode of this brilliant new HBO series, discussing the horrific depictions of racial injustice as we follow our hero's thru the treacherous unknown terrain of middle-America and the ensuing Lovecraftian encounters with beasts. The show is very unique and expertly crafted, working from a wonderful script and assured direction that is sure to carry on thru the run of the series, the guys can't wait to potentially discuss more once the show concludes in a few months! Highly recommended!

#52 - Paris, Texas

EDan and Raul dive into another European filmmaker, but this time who hales from the 70's era German New Wave. Wim Wenders is discussed and the focus is his most successful United States-based film, Paris, Texas from 1984. Winner of the Cannes Palme D'or for Best Film, Wenders uses this film as a culmination of all he has learned in filmmaking before it to produce this visually rich and thematically thick yet simple story.

#52 - Paris, Texas

#51 - Palm Springs

EDan and Raul are joined once again by Jonnie and Natalia to cover this new movie that just came out on Hulu. Although the movie was solid and real funny and had time loop business that it dealt with in a cool way, everyone wasn't quite sure how this could become a bigger discussion, but ultimately the larger themes and moral dilemmas of living in a time loop situation was great fodder for some fun ideas to kick around. Not to mention, there is a ton of other time travel and time looping movies that are discussed as well!

#50 - Alphaville (1965)

EThe guys dive into the next film and filmmaker in their new series on art film directors, and this week Jean-Luc Godard is discussed along with his sci-fi film, Alphaville. Raul hadn't seen any previous works and Dan had seen a few but binged a bunch of Godard this week in preparation for the discussion. Cracking Godard can be very tough and distancing with his art-first approach, but this genre film is a rarity in his oeuvre and helped as an easier entry point to a legendarily complicated director.

#47 - Unsolved Mysteries (2020)

EDan and Raul are joined by guest, Natalia, to discuss the relaunch/reimagining of the 80's-90's popular TV series, Unsolved Mysteries. We also discuss a short documentary on Amazon called, Rain Man Twins, as well as various true crime documentary series and podcasts that are in the vein of Unsolved Mysteries. Each of the new 6 episodes are discussed, including which of the cases we think are potentially the most solvable, and time will tell if any of these cold cases could find some truth!
