Ep 55: Dr. Strange, Sam Raimi, Series Reboots, Pluto is Amazing, Depp v. Heard, Trailers and Teasers
Dr. Strange and the Madness of the Multiverse Sam Raimi is still amazing (even though Brian felt Raimi was too silly) Reboot or return to series, worth it or not? Streaming platform Pluto is Mick's go to choice Depp v. Heard because we just gotta... Mick gets to...
This week we discuss Empire Records, how Pam and Tommy gave rise to the internet, how porn directs technology, catching up on the Smith/Rock situation and so much more!
This episode, Mick and Brian have apparently turned their brains off and can’t remember 90s bands and movies. Our trivia mojo is fading. Sam Elliott, really? Not so subtle homo-eroticism in old westerns, and other Best Picture noms.
We’re back! Yes, after a short break Mick and Brian are back in the studios, laughing and chatting it up about all kinds of things. Sometimes we even manage to talk about movies!
Mick and Brian do their best to discuss movies. But, alas. We talk about so many reasons we need therapy!
It’s so cold outside that Brian will not accept an actual temperature reading! Mick doesn’t trust bus drivers. Disney is everywhere and Brian is terrible at segways.
RIP Meat Loaf and Louie Anderson and Mick breaks Brian’s heart by calling Green Day “classic rock”.
Mick has a perfect troll technique for country music fans and Brian falls right into it.

First and foremost, Mick and Brian have fond memories of John Madden, Betty White and Sidney Poitier. What an end to 2021 and beginning to 2022. Rest in peace you American Treasures.
We move on to discuss how many movies we watch and is there a such a thing as watching too many movies.
Mick suggests that people like movies or have favorites because of some personal affiliation or familiarity to the plot. He’s right!

Merry Christmas! That’s it. You get no more Christmas in this show. We still have fun meandering around some movie talk, the old days of warming up the television and hand turning 30 foot tall antennas in thunderstorms. Then, Brian says “Why Jersey” and Mick goes off about Jersey and the built in attitude. Like movies, it has a lot to do with shared experience.
Happy Thanksgiving to those in the States! We’ve been watching movies and giving thanks for all of you! Believe it or not, Mick and Brian do not have an argument on this episode. Instead they discuss Spiderman, Ghostbusters: Afterlife, crypto currency and lots more. Enjoy!

Mick and Brian have something in common. We love NIC CAGE! We spend this episode loving on some Nic Cage. We welcome back Brendan Fraser to the screen, joyously! Directors’ trademark styles, watching more movies toward the 365 films in 365 days challenge. Mick has a great breakdown of A24 projects.
Mick and Brian are just two buddies talking about movies. Today Brian learns about Tony Scott’s filmography, Mick loved CANDYMAN, we both go on about MARVEL phases 1-3 and finally we talk a bit about movies as time capsules.
I don’t know how we have a filmmaking podcast and take so long to get into the film talk. Alas, we’ve done it again! We start with celebrity hall passes and crushes then we get personal about dating style. Are movies a good first date, there’s room for debate.
This show is a long one and we have a blast! We eventually get to the crux of the show discussing writer's rooms, writers and all the ways a script can be changed if it along the chain from writer final edit. Make sure to visit Mick over at The Scene Snobs and Brian...
After a lively The Shining, Kubrick, Stephen King, Great Expectations whirlwind we go off on a great tangent about music and crypto currency.
After an early summer of “life” events, Mick and Brian are back. But DON’T CALL IT A COMEBACK! WE’VE BEEN HERE FOR YEARS!
