NIACW 187 Network

In the age of infotainment and President Trump, a film like Network might not seem so satirical but in 1976 it was the darkest of satires and a damning criticism of “modern” journalism.

 

It’s one of Brother E’s favorite films but Brother J thought it didn’t translate to a modern audience.

 

We have a fun discussion about media luminaries such as: Glenn Beck, Christine O’Donnell, Bill Maher, Dan Savage, Michael Savage, Alex Jones, Steve Bannon, President Trump, Keith Olbermann, Rachel Maddow, Shepard Smith, Nancy Grace, and Jenny Jones. Brother J shares a theory on framing beach scenes.

 

In housekeeping we discuss: Crazy Ex-Girlfriend, Trolls, Inside Out, The Butterfly Effect, Asylum Blackout, Perkins 14, and Darling.

NIACW 186 Grosse Pointe Blank

Grosse Pointe Blank is full of great actors quipping fun lines amidst solid action sequences set to late 80’s music. What’s not to love?

Correction: Eric mentions that the director, George Armitage, also directed 1971’s “Private Duty Nurses,” which Eric described as a “Nudie Cutie” movie. Upon further review it is probably better described as a “Sexploitation” movie.

In housekeeping we discuss Rogue One, The Accountant, House of 1000 Corpses, Dawn of the Dead, and Exorcist III. We also recommend the podcasts: “Monster Party” and “In the Dark.”

NIACW 185 Octopussy

Octopussy proves that one can forgive a lot of goofiness if the pacing is fast enough. It has clowns, twins, an all-girl ninja force, a Faberge egg, elephants, a tiger, a submarine that looks like a crocodile, a nuclear bomb, and a crazy Russian general but it’s still fairly grounded to reality.

Also: true elevator horror story

Orlando Sentinel:

Elevator Crushes Woman Caught Between Floors

October 1, 1991 ANCHORAGE, ALASKA —

A woman was crushed in a parking garage elevator as fellow passengers tried to save her. The woman was caught Sunday between floors of the J.C. Penney Co. parking garage elevator. She was getting on when the elevator started going up and she slipped, police said. ''As she stepped on the elevator, it suddenly started to go up,'' police Lt. Bill Gaither said. ''There was no one standing at the control panel, and the doors stayed open.'' The woman dangled half on and half off the elevator and was crushed as five other passengers frantically pressed buttons to save her, Gaither said.

NIACW 184 Soapdish

Soapdish has an all-star cast but, while Eric and J liked revisiting it, Drew thought it was weak sauce.

Later we pour one out for Miguel Ferrer (RIP), brother J suggests how best to watch Twin Peaks, and Eric discusses some movies he watched this week: The Man Who Wasn’t There, Diabolique 1955 and Diabolique 1996, and The Russian Woodpecker.

NIACW 183 The Big Lebowski

Another Coen Brothers movie that Brothers E and J love but Drew dislikes intensely, the Big Lebowski is chock full of quotables.

This episode has a fair amount of meandering so be prepared. We discuss, among other things, cutting the cable cord and Carrie Fisher’s virginity.

Housekeeping starts at 1:15:00

The Big Lebowski “Fuck” count:

260 “fuck”s, 117 minutes of movie. 2.22 fucks per minute

Compare to Wolf of Wall Street:

569 fucks in 180 minutes for a 3.16 fucks per minute which is the top of mainstream films.

Goodwill Hunting and Scarface have 1.22 and 1.21 fucks per minute

The Grey has 1.3 fucks per minute (and is a Christian film, right?)

NIACW 182 Maggie

Maggie, with Arnold Schwarzenegger and Abigail Breslin, is a good first effort for director Henry Hobson.  It’s not perfect but it’s certainly interesting.

Drew and Eric also discuss the wonderful Carrie Fisher, rest in peace.

Happy New Year!

NIACW 180 For Your Eyes Only

For Your Eyes Only is a simpler Bond than Moonraker, one that Brother J and Drew did not like but Eric found refreshing.

 

The audio on this is a little wonky (but perfectly listenable) – Brother J’s new office is a bit echoey and for some reason Drew’s audio has an occasional “skip” in it.

 

Also Eric refers to Jack White as Jack Black and no one catches it.

NIACW 179 Moonraker

Moonraker is neither the best nor the worst Bond movie but it’s full of campy fun.

 

Life interfered and it’s an Eric and Brother J ep but there’s still some fun stuff – and bonus: Storm Large talk.

NIACW 175 Wild At Heart

David Lynch, Nicholas Cage, Willem Dafoe, Crispin Glover, and Harry Dean Stanton are just some of the weird cats involved in Wild At Heart. It’s a fever dream of oddness. Recorded originally December 28, 2015, this was the last regularly scheduled Eric and Brother J duo episode.
