On this episode I have a bit of phone sex with Web from It’s Terrific, as we carry out our long distance relationship in podcast form by discussing the new date film HOW TO BE SINGLE. This inspires a double feature of Cameron Crowe’s SINGLES vs. Jason Reitman’s UP IN THE AIR which I talk about with Dwight from The Broken Brain podcast. But first, see if Web and I learn how to be single.

On this episode we decide that Ryan Reynolds talks too much. This conclusion was based on the extensive research of watching a double feature of the man’s work in DEFINITELY, MAYBE and THE VOICES. A matchup inspired by Mr. Reynolds first (?) box office success, the new release DEADPOOL.

On this episode we take a trip to the cinematic universe of Jane Austen with two returning guests. Karly of CoreTempArts and Natasha of Kentucky Geek Girl join the show for a double feature of CLUELESS and AUSTENLAND, inspired by the new release PRIDE AND PREJUDICE AND ZOMBIES.

On this episode we seek immortality in films with rock stars. In Tony Scott’s THE HUNGER, David Bowie plays a man promised eternal life dealing with a betrayal that puts his relationship and future in perspective. Whereas in DOGMA we see a lot of perspectives on the presence (or in this case lack of presence) of Alanis Morissette as God, debated by mortals and immortals alike. These lofty questions, plus we state a preference on Dungeons & Dragons character classes, maintain a hard line in negotiations with vampires, and obviously choose a Tony Scott film over Charles Dickens as our final act in this life. But before it comes to that, we discuss the new to video HE NEVER DIED starring Henry Rollins.

On this episode we welcome a professional therapist, Derek Stewart, onto the podcast to do a little marriage counseling with Michelle Pfeiffer and Harrison Ford in WHAT LIES BENEATH. We also debate who controls a life story in the very interesting Sarah Polley documentary STORIES WE TELL. This podcast session (which much to the distress of the creators is free of charge) has been inspired by the new release 45 YEARS.
