Episode #28 – The Back To School Special!

Paul and I decided that Episode #28 would be our salute to Back To School Season, and we each found a 90’s movie to fit the bill perfectly, in fact it’s one of our favorite double-features so far!

Paul chose the 1996 film The Substitute starring Tom Berenger, Ernie Hudson, and…Marc Anthony?!?!?!

Wait. That’s not Tom Berenger…

I picked the Robert Rodriguez helmed scifi/horror flick The Faculty from 1998 starring Elijah Wood, Josh Hartnett…and Usher?!?!?!

Um, no: still not Tom Berenger…

We also talk about what we’ve been up to lately, what we’re watching, and what laws we plan to break next time around so we have to go to detention.

Nope. Not even close.

So please don’t miss the bus and be late to school!  If you don’t you’ll miss all the fun, and you’ll never know if I ever found the right movie to watch!

Won’t you join us?


Ah. There it is.
“The Substitute” – 1996
“The Faculty” – 1998

#27 has us camping it up…and living in a Ghost World…

Hello, friends!  We’re back with Episode #27, and it’s full of camp fun and esoteric hipness!  This time around I REALLY GOT PAUL GOOD: I made him watch 1967’s Valley of the Dolls, and he may never, never forgive me.  You’ve really got to hear him to know how much pain I inflicted on him.  It was delicious.

She woke up like this…

Then we talk about Paul’s pick, 2001’s Ghost World, directed by the talented Terry Zwigoff, who also directed one of my favorite documentaries, Crumb.  The movie stars Thora Birch, Scarlett Johansson, and Steve Buscemi, and it could not be more different from Valley of the Dolls if it tried.

Paul’s expression when he realized he was only halfway through Valley of the Dolls…

Find out how this graphic novel turned into a film made me react, and also find out which movies we will be covering next time in Episode #28 (classic slasher horror and basketball and romance are involved, FYI).
