This week we watched Grand Piano, a film some people on this podcast have called 'the dumb version of Whiplash.' Listen to us talk about how and why John Cusack and Bill S. "Alex Winter" Preston Esquire kill people to make Elijah Wood play the piano better. We tell you why Damien Chazelle seems like an evil person, but is actually better than you, think about trying the Santa Clarita Diet, and Matt and Dylan wanna talk about Arrival, but then don't for obvious reasons. Don't be a Tom FAILZnik, be a Tom LISTENTOTHISEPZnik! Night night I have a concussion

We spend twenty minutes introducing The Magnificent Seven so we can give you all the interesting details, like what Aikido is and what we thought about John Wick, and also so we can name all the Skarsgards and brainstorm new snacks we could invent that might be good. This episode sponsored by Legal Zip. It's like a scam.

This Inauguration Day, we talk about Look Who's Back, the movie where Hitler is here again. We try not to get political. Kevin hasn't been on in a while, Matt hasn't slept in a while, and Logan hasn't seen Rogue One in an ever. I think Matt says Adolph Borat at one point, when he really should have said either Borat Hitler or Adolph Sagdiyev. Then we have a pretty weird discussion of Starwars. Er ist wieder da.

'Tis the season for the coming together of friends and family, the lifting of spirits, and the talking about of movies. 'Tis a special film we watched, wherein a bedraggled Paul Dano learns to share his life with a bloated and decaying Daniel Radcliffe. And yes, Mary Elizabeth Winstead was there too. This holiday season, we'd like to invite you to watch Swiss Army Man, and listen to us reminisce about times gone by when we did the same. Logan and Matt will be there, with little Dylan by the fire, playing with his brand new microphone. We do so hope that you will join us.
EDITOR'S NOTE This episode was recorded before the release of Rogue One: A Star Wars Story. Quit asking us to talk about Star Wars, nerds.

A Girl Walk Home Alone at Night, just barely in time to qualify as Halloween in November! So do the HLTATMOW while you listen to us talk about this Persish film written and directed by Ana Lily Amirpour! Plus video games, anime, and it's sort of unclear what the next pick is! Cause of Dylan! But let's say it's Swiss Army Man! I'm pretty sure that's right! It's the HLTATMOW dance!

Trollhunter! Norwegians! Talking! You get it. This was recorded before the election, so any political commentary is entirely speculative. Halloween in November or whatever

Happy Halloween, everybody! Every... (dramatic pause) ...DEAD BODY!!! Evil laugh, lightning, thunder, creaky door sound. That's right, it's that time again. When we dust off the sound effects machine, realize it doesn't work anymore, and haul it off to the spooky mansion down the street to try to sell it to the spooky hoarder who lives there. While we were waiting for him to count and roll thousands of nickels, we went ahead and recorded an episode of the podcast. We pretty much talked about Event Horizon. Apologies if any spooky noises made it onto the recording.

Join us on an auditory journey along the Oregon Trail! Along the way, we'll talk about a movie we watched called Meek's Cutoff, have our clothes stolen, and try to mutiny Logan. Later on, we'll confuse movies with other movies and discuss a weird spattering of TV shows. So come along, pioneers!!! Opportunity awaits!!!!! Dylan has dysentery.

Deathgasm is a word that gets thrown around a lot these days. But what does it really mean? Join us this week as we struggle with the question, "Why isn't anyone starting the show?" Then we struggle with this foreign film that we watched. There's some D&D talk, and even some D&D&D&D talk. Stick around after the show for the debut of the gaming advice column, Aunty Gamer. All this, plus Dylan won't tell us what he's been watching.

Hear us talk about The Lobster, the Yorgos Lanthimos film! Hear one of us be really late for no reason and one of us sound like he was really mad at the movie! If you already guessed which two those two were correctly, then you've listened to too many episodes of this podcast and you have to stop now! This is an ABC conversation! So D your way out!

The 1979 film Real Life is about how reality shows are stupid! And Albert Brooks' directorial debut inspired us to give you a little glimpse behind the scenes of our own podcast! So tune in to find out what happens when three podcasters start being polite and stop getting real!! Er, wait, I meant the other way. Wait, that way doesn't make sense either. Are podcasters really known for their politeness? Whatever, I don't care. screw this dumb episode description

Big Trouble in Little China! John Carpenter directed it and we talked about it! So allow us to regale you with tales of the adventures of Jack Burton, the first podcaster, and an orange ape monster! I hope I used that comma correctly so it doesn't seem like I'm calling Kurt Russell an orange ape monster! Matt does a game or something and Dylan still can't stop talking about Abduction! It's all the in the reflexes!!!

We talked about Odd Thomas as a sort of elegy for Anton Yelchin. Logan tries to steer us away from getting too sad, which is weird since he picked this movie, presumably in an attempt to make us very sad. This episode is being posted in the wake of Hurricane Hermine, so you know at least one of us survived, but since it was recorded a while back, you'll have to keep listening for another month or so to find out which one(s)! Kevin praises this as one of Yelchin's finest performances, Dylan apparently just discovered cold brew coffee, and Matt says something really smart and funny at the beginning of the show, but everybody else pretends it's not that great because they're jealous. Goodbye, Anton Yelchin. We all liked you.

He finally did it. Dylan made us watch Abduction. And edited his first episode. One of those things turned out okay. Matt allegedly obtained the original screenplay that ignited a bidding war so he could talk about what the studio changed and also debunk the myth that the screenplay was good. Kevin thinks this is a parody movie, Dylan tells you when Taylor Lautner takes his shirt off, and has a great idea for those who wants to cause our country harm. TL;DR Logan sums up the movie in the first five seconds.

We talked about Christopher Nolan's first film, Following! It was the same length as this episode. But we also talked about all his other movies, too, sort of. And other stuff. 10 Cloverfield Lane, I think was one. All this plus it's a mystery episode or something! Can you figure what's going on??? I think it's some kind of mystery!!
