When Harry Met… Blue Valentine? Inappropriate Double Features.

Jim and Teal kick off this episode with the time-honored tradition of seeing two movies, back-to-back. Jim worshiped drive-in double features. For Teal, watching two movie rentals at the video store was his passion. What is your favorite way to view a double bill? What if a double feature is thematically linked, but one is so clearly an inappropriate match, it’s a challenge to watch them one after the other? Need some help thinking of pairs? Don’t worry: Jim and Teal have you covered. Spend an hour with Jim and Teal, laughing along at their cringe-worthy pairings. These couplings may make you laugh, but you will be hard pressed to disagree; these are inappropriate double features all the way. Listen to the episode and then send us your comments as to what you think makes a great inappropriate double-feature.

This week Jim and Teal take on the re-imagining of a horror film classic, Suspiria. Is Dakota Johnson up to the task of filling Jessica Harper’s dance shoes? But before that, our two intrepid podcasting heroes discuss the second highest-grossing film in China, The Wandering Earth. How does it compare with Hollywood big-budget sci-fi disaster flicks? Speaking of disaster, Jim rants about the new Godzilla movie, and wonders how they could mess up the formula so bad. In between, Jim and Teal squeeze in some other recommendations, and dis-recommendations, before finally stopping over at the El Royale for some Bad Times. Or maybe there are some good times. Take a listen and find out for yourself.

Rocky Horror Picture Show and Rock & Roll Movie Memories

Jim and Teal’s discussion of Rock & Roll-themed movies and musical biopics continues with Jim’s recollections of seeing The Rocky Horror Picture Show as a teenager.

They still have time to talk about This is Spinal Tap and A Hard Days night. Enjoy this second part of Rock & Roll movie fun. Go back and listen to the beginning of their discussion with the previous episode if you have not already done so.
