I Like To Movie Movie

Garrett and Dan and joined by returning champions Ivo Tomas and Andy Elijah to talk about the winner of our recent pole, George Romero's Dawn of the Dead. Using a unique setting for a horror film, Romero takes his basic zombie premise of consumption and broadens its scope both literally and metaphorically. In effect, he makes a bigger, meaner horror film while also making a richer, more satisfying satire than his previous outing in the genre, criticizing the American notion that living is not enough in and of itself, it is instead living well that gives us purpose. The gang also chats about a few movie news stories and gives a rundown of their 5 Favorite Horror Locales.

Dan and Garrett are joined by Philadelphia comedians Abeeku Cobbina and Setoiyo to chat about Jordan Peele's directorial debut, Get Out. With one of the tightest scripts in recent memory, Peele delivers a thrilling social satire about race and otherness in the supposedly "post-racial" America we tried to lay claim to during the Obama administration. As the gang attempts to unpack every bit of imagery and metaphor, they're continually lead into frank conversations about blackness in America, blackness in horror movies, and how Peele intertwines the two to create a narrative that is both enlightening and constructive, rather than instructive. If you've yet to see Get Out, this podcast is SPOILER heavy and we recommend seeing the film before listening. The film is currently playing in theaters, enjoying much deserved critical and financial success, and you should buy a ticket right now.

Follow us on twitter @ilike2movie and, in honor of Get Out, vote on which social satire we should review next: Dawn of the Dead (1978), Robocop (1987), or Nightcrawler (2014).

85 - Knowing

Dan and Garrett are joined by Alex Pearlman, co-creator of the patented Bone Tomahawk GreetingĀ©, to talk about an oft-maligned sci-fi classic of the aughts, Alex Proyas' Knowing (or for you diehards out there, Know1ng). While Proyas' films can be silly and over the top, they wear that on their sleeve and use it to create big, memorable images and explore philosophical concepts made accessible through blockbuster packaging. Knowing is an excellent example of Proyas working double duty to entertain you and open you up to a larger discussion about faith and meaning in the universe. And it certainly doesn't hurt that it happens to a be Nic Cage movie with a particularly Cage-y performance as a Chaos Theory obsessed Professor of Astrophysics with a drinking problem. Seriously - you should see Know1ng.

84 - Boogie Nights

Dan and Garrett come out of 2016 swingin' with Dan's all-time favorite Movie Movie, Boogie Nights. Jam packed with memorable scenes, fantastic performances, and a young PT Anderson's stylish tracking shots, Boogie Nights uses the transition from film to video that the porn industry went through in the 80's to unpack the simultaneously changing movie industry, and even the actual cultural transition that was occurring in America at the time. By putting character first, Anderson made one of the most iconic films of the 90's that is equally as uplifting as it is harrowing, and ultimately reminds us that sometimes we just need to ask for help - a timeless and undervalued piece of advice.

Happy Bone Tomaholidays from all of us here at I Like To Movie Movie! Garrett and Dan ring in the new year with special guest Andy Elijah of Cinedelphia to talk about their Top 10 favorite Movie Movies of 2016. While the year may have been lacking in great studio movies, it was chock full of independent releases that prove that great films are still being made, the system is simply changing. The boys try to parse out some themes from the year's movies, like facing grief and communication, as well as talk about some of their least favorite releases of the year. 

Happy New Year folks, we'll see you next year!

82 - Back To The Future Part III

Dan and Garrett welcome a longtime friend and fan of the show, Becca, to discuss one of her favorite movie movies, Back To The Future Part III, which also happens to be part of her favorite genre of film - the third chapter's of trilogies. The gang discusses the choice to shift the focus of the story to Doc Brown, the art of achieving entertaining exposition, and whether this story finally breaks the (somewhat) sound logic of the series' timeline. They also chat about the influence of Dr. Who on the Back To The Future series, their reboot/legacequel pitches, and list their favorite "fake technology" in films.

81 - Elle

Merry Bone Tomahawk Thanksgiving from Garrett and Dan! This week the boys are joined by Dan Santelli of Viva Video to celebrate the return of Paul Verhoeven with his new film Elle. Always the provocateur, Verhoeven delivers an entertaining, blackly funny film that is as difficult and uncomfortable to talk about as it can be to watch. Wrestling with meaning and intention proves difficult here, but that's precisely why it's deserving of a conversation.

80 - Arrival

Dan and Garrett spent their week trying to make sense of things until they saw Denis Villeneuve's latest film, Arrival, and came away with a new found hope for the future. Arrival makes an elegant argument for communication being paramount in all progress, and does so while simultaneously delivering summer blockbuster levels of fun. Tense, beautiful, deeply satisfying hard sci-fi - Arrival is one of this year's best films and is exactly the kind of art we all need right now.

79 - Scream

Garrett and Dan throw one last Halloween party for October, and this time - no one is safe. Friend of the show and former star of the Scream-inspired stage show "Spookfish", Jenna Kuerzi joins the boys to discuss what will likely go down as their generation's greatest slasher, Scream. Scream didn't just change the landscape of horror for the decade to come, it changed the landscape of pop culture entirely by popularizing the meta-text. And it did so without feeling like one big, giant wink that exists solely for fans of the genre, instead contributing greatly to the growing legacy of slasher franchises by empowering the final girl regardless of how well she stands up to puritanical standards.
