Assassin 33 AD

EFinally, a movie that answers the tough questions... What if terrorist got hold of a time machine and used it to try and assassinate Jesus, prevent the resurrection by bringing his body to the present, thereby erasing Christianity from history? What if the only people who can stop that from happening are a group of scientists that accidentally discovered time travel in less than a month? Can you still get away with an African American character who is essentially a collection of outdated stereotypes. These and many more questions are answered in this episode as we look at Assassins 33 AD.

The Quiet Man

EThanks to a Patreon request, we finally take a look at possibly the Irish American film. John Ford's, "The Quiet Man," with John Wayne and Maureen O'Hara. It's funny how much a little bit of introspection can change how you relate with a movie. Seeing the... Irishness of it all is... well, you kinda have to listen.

Big Night

There are few movies as criminally overlooked and underrated as "Big Night." It's just a minor indie movie from the mid 90's, but it might be flashpoint for modern foodie culture. All that nonsense aside... its just a good movie.

Rambo: First Blood Part 2

First Blood

EThis might be hard to believe, but John Rambo was originally a symbol of the horrors of war. Really, he was. Whatever he morphed into, he began his life as a... a cautionary tale. Can you create a perfect soldier, ready him to handle whatever he would come across in the middle of a war, and then just expect him to shut it off and go back to a normal life? There were some heavy questions at play in "First Blood." Not that we address any of them in any meaningful way, but they are there.

Creed II

EThe Rocky film series has somehow managed to pull off a nearly impossible feat, for the second time. A lot of people may not realize this, but Rocky was not a big release when it first came out. It was a low budget arthouse film that somehow went on to become a blockbuster franchise. No mean feat. But, doing the near impossible once just wasn't enough. So... Creed II That's right. The latest installment of one of the most beloved American film franchises of all time comes roaring in and moves what was a story about a guy trying to live in the shadow of his father into the big leagues. We begin another series of films in reverse. Join Clarkson for his first viewing, Jim saw it on opening day because its a Rocky movie and he is not normal about these things.
