THE True Bromance Film Podcast - Molly's Game

Episode 187 Aaron Sorkin is highly acclaimed for his entertaining screenwriting but he has never directed his own film. Sorkin changes that with his debut film, Molly's Game, that casts Jessica Chastain as Molly Bloom and Idris Elba as the lawyer who takes on the task of absolving her from the crimes of running a high stakes poker game for the stars. MOVIES DISCUSSED THIS WEEK: Colossal, Peaky Blinders, Abundant Acreage Available, Brigsby Bear, The Hero, Molly's Game

Ep. 185 of War Machine vs. War Horse: Crimson Peak (Rebecca vs. A Good Marriage)

On  this episode we talk about the much anticipated CRIMSON PEAK with our friend Web Bist from the podcast  It’s Terrific   and then we move on to Creepy Marriages with a Third Party by checking out Alfred Hitchcock’s REBECCA and the Stephen King film adaptation of A GOOD MARRIAGE with our friends over at the  Plain Label Podcast , Eric and Rachel. But first,  we are first in line for  the latest socially acceptable chance to stare at Jessica Chastain for two hours.

Ep. 181 of War Machine vs. War Horse: The Martian (Apollo 13 vs. Gravity)

On this episode we attempt to survive in space with Hadas from the Common Room podcast, and thankfully we have a couple of movies on the subject to entertain us. In APOLLO 13, Tom Hanks, Bill Paxton, and Kevin Bacon rely on each other and the crew back on Earth to put together a plan to return home after a failed trip to the moon, whereas in GRAVITY it’s Sandra Bullock in a solo quest to return to our home planet, although George Clooney does provide a brief pep talk. But before all that grim business, we express a little bit of joy with Jess and Non of the Joy Sandwich podcast, as we admire the humor with which Matt Damon approaches being stranded on Mars in new release THE MARTIAN.
