On this installment of What We Watched:
- Much to Steph's chagrin, all the puns in the world aren't enough to make Running Man a good movie
- I Heart Huckabees? More like I ZZZZ Huckabees...
- Our discussion of Rosemary's Baby devolves into what makes a movie scary... Also, Tony tells you all the ways in which you are stupid
- We get passionate about education and inner-city school kids (who knew?!) while discussing the documentary Pressure Cooker
Warning, this one's a doozy, folks. Plenty of banter and grousing!
Good morning, read-a-thoners! In case your eyes are too tired to do any more reading, why not take a listen to what we've been watching over the past few weeks?
Featured in this installment:
- Red Riding (1974) makes us wonder whether movies that feature actors from Yorkshire, England qualify as "foreign language" films...
- Another win for Pixar with A Bug's Life (even if it's about actual bugs, and not our little bug, Rory). Also, Tony geeks out.
- Tony schools Steph in American history, though she makes a legitimate point about settlers in Washington state while talking about Sleepy Hollow.
- We revisit Savannah and Kevin Spacey with Midnight in the Garden of Good and Evil. We probably prefer Spacey's performance as a grasshopper to Jim Williams, but we definitely prefer John Cusack when he plays "that guy who is not in whatever movie we're watching".
- We belatedly continue to watch movies that were nominated but did not win the 2010 Oscar for Best Picture, this time with A Serious Man. I think we know why this one did not win.
- Did you know Bruce Willis once had hair? Don't believe us? Watch Die Hard. Also: Alan Rickman! Who knew?!?!
We know the excitement is killing you, so let's just cut to the podcast! Featured this week on What We Watched:
Highlights from the podcast:
- We pontificate on what Franka Potente’s audition must have been like for Run Lola Run
- No, your eyes don’t deceive you. We really did watch Labyrinth again. But this time, ON THE BIG SCREEN!!!
- We discuss the various ways in which A Perfect Getaway was anything but perfect
- Steph reveals another girl crush when discussing A Mighty Wind
- Tony threatens to end our marriage when he discovers another egregious lapse in Steph’s movie watching history which is revealed when we discuss Assassination of a High School President
