About Us

We discuss the indie director’s short-but-prolific career, while also going in-depth on her criminally underseen 2017 drama Outside […]

The Pick: Outside In

The Pick: Hot Rod

EEverybody rev your engines, because this week we’re soaring off a jump and crashing our mopeds into a discussion of Hot Rod. Is it the most thought-provoking and intellectually stimulating conversation we’ve ever had? Not really. Does it feature us constantly recalling ridiculous jokes from the movie in question and chuckling to ourselves approvingly? You […]

The Pick: Dune

EHe who controls THE PICK controls the universe! This week Sean, John, Colin, and special guest Matt “Nancy” Carstens are watching David Lynch’s 1984 sci-fi fantasy nightmare Dune! Why? Cause over the past four months we read Frank Herbert’s iconic 1965 novel. How did the film compare to the book? Is David Lynch’s Dune an […]

The Pick: Dick Tracy

EGet out your two-way wristwatches and your banana-colored trenchoats, because this week we’re talking about Dick Tracy. It’s a movie that seemed to be everywhere when it came out in 1990, and now is more or less forgotten. We delve into Warren Beatty’s long road to getting aDick Tracy movie made, as well as all […]

The Pick: Speed Racer

EHere it comes, here comes The Pick! Once again this week we’re reviewing a live-action movie adaptation of a famous cartoon (and there just might be another one around the corner).

The Pick: Changing Lanes

EFor a long time, the three of us have had a mild fascination with the movieChanging Lanes. Like, what’s its deal? It stars two actors that have had a surprising amount of longevity in their careers and has a fun/stupid premise, and yet no one ever talks about it. So much so that this might […]

The Pick: The Hunt For Red October

EThe world may have shut down, but we’re still intent on delivering episodes of The Pick. I mean, what else better do we have to do? This week we dig into a movie that’s sort of about social distancing, but also, not really, since it involves a lot of men being tucked into very close […]
