99 FROM 99: Lock, Stock and Two Smoking Barrels

We hustle our listeners to yet another episode on the films from 1999... although on this one we are keeping in tradition of this one arriving a bit later to the States, so yes, for you sticklers out there this is originally a 1998 film. But no matter! Celebrate with us the arrival of future action star Jason Statham in the movie that started his career as well as director Guy Ritchie. For better or worse we've all managed to survive their filmography, but how does LOCK, STOCK AND TWO SMOKING BARRELS hold up in 2018?

For RED SPARROW we go with an obvious tie-in film in the first of our once a month romance with classic cinema: Michael Powell and Emeric Pressburger's 1948 film THE RED SHOES. Ballet and the color red, but no spycraft to be found as your hosts Dave and Mike talk about the difference between professional and romantic passion and how podcasts provide more of the latter (episode 100 is just around the corner where your hosts finally answer "will they or won't they?") than the former.

ORIGINAL REMAKE: Star Trek 1979 and 2009

On this episode we journey to a place that Hollywood has been many times before... the STAR TREK universe. In particular we look at the first feature film for this franchise with 1979's STAR TREK: THE MOTION PICTURE and the J.J. Abrams reboot in 2009. Which jerk Captain Kirk do you prefer? The back from retirement William Shatner version from the 1979 film OR the hothead amateur played by Chris Pine in in the 2009 reboot?

COLD HELL review

A religious radical prowls the streets of Vienna, removing the skin of Muslim sex workers while they are still alive before compelling them to drink bubbled cooking oil. A young lady drives a taxi, as the night progresses, every iteration of a terrible human being passes through her cab, each one inching her closer and closer to a rage-fueled breakdown. The film explores the parallel stories of these two individuals whose lives will eventually crash into one another. The most recent film from Oscar-winning Austrian movie producer Stefan Ruzowitzky (The Counterfeiters), Cold Hell (Die Holle) is a merciless tale that wallows in savagery.

Özge Dogruol (Violetta Schurawlow) is the cabbie, whose history of abuse has turned her into a survivor. She continually pushes ahead regardless of what life gives her. She trains at her ex's Thai boxing gym until she gets kicked out for beating the snot out an opponent who throws a sucker punch. She can handle herself and has a strong sense of rig…

Science fiction is a speculative form of storytelling that's often concerned with what it means to be human. In that vein IMITATION GIRL is a brilliantly crafted philosophical journey that gives viewers far more questions than answers. Imitation (Lauren Ashley Carter) is an alien who falls from the sky and lands somewhere in the southwestern United States. She finds an image of Julianna (Lauren Ashley Carter) an adult film actress and takes on her form. The film is the parallel stories of two individuals trying to figure out exactly who they are. 
Imitation is somewhat devoid of self-awareness and has no idea where she is. Each piece of information she gathers is a revelation as she acclimates to her new body and environment. Saghi, and his sister, Khahar, take in Imitation. They perceive her to be a harmless simpleton. Gesture-based communication and pieces of sustenance are their lone methods of communication. However, Imitation is exceptionally responsive to these interactions a…

WAR MACHINE vs. WAR HORSE: Red Sparrow (Reds vs. Red Heat)

For Jennifer Lawrence's latest RED SPARROW we decide to be social with guest JD Duran of Insession Film. He joins the podcast to discuss the problems the characters of REDS and RED HEAT have navigating personal relationships when they conflict with their political beliefs. So on the one hand we have the film that won Warren Beatty his Best Director Oscar and the film that SHOULD have won Arnold Schwarzenegger one of many Oscars. All of that and we implore our guest to stop going on social media.
