The story of Christopher McCandless aka Alexander Supertramp is something most Alaskans consider a cautionary tale. Jon Krakauer and Sean Penn treat it as a romantic tale of the spirit of idealistic youth. The brothers have opinions.

Comedies are hard to discuss, mostly because if one doesn’t find something funny the first time one sees it, a hearty discussion rarely changes that view. Tropic Thunder tickled the funny bone of Eric and Drew but Brother J remains unimpressed.

 

Along the way they discuss Richard Cheese and Drew tells a talk of pediatric x-rays.

Housekeeping starts at 38:20

Sunset Blvd is an enduring classic; dark, funny, tragic, and beautiful. And her name is Norma, not Nora. Someone please remind Eric.

Housekeeping starts at 41:40.

Housekeeping involves J’s fat head, Creed 2, and being a grumpy old man.

J and Eric discuss J Edgar, a surprisingly good movie directed by Clint Eastwood. The movie brings up some current politics but we try not to drift too much.

 

Housekeeping starts at 53:10 and involves something of a Face/Off

If you are looking for a film chock full of great actors giving understated performances this is the film for you. Pay attention, though, and make sure you get a good night’s sleep the night before.

 

In housekeeping we have park stories. Also, we direct you to read Rex Reed's Hotel Artemis review

Lennie Bruce might not be afraid but two of the Anderson bros sure are about the end of the world. We talk about Dr Strangelove again after viewing it with new eyes. Then talk turns to the excellent book The Dead Hand: The Untold Story of the Cold War Arms Race and its Dangerous Legacy

Casablanca is brilliantly paced, tragically romantic, and darkly comic. It’s a classic that doesn’t feel like homework.

Housekeeping starts at 50:35 and includes some fun music
