Today I'm talking with the Emmy Nominated Cinematographers of Netflix's zeitgeist Documentary THE SOCIAL DILEMMA. It's a hybrid film that blends documentary footage with a narrative film seamlessly, and pulls back the curtain on the insidious business of social media. We talk about their very different paths to becoming filmmakers, how collaboratio…
 
As the Summer of Weddings closes, we decide to put some fresh eyes on some of the depictions of adulthood from movies and TV we watched and loved as kids versus how we feel about them today (surprise, we hate them!). Mostly, it's a great excuse for Leigh to force Brendan and Chris to watch the truly cringeworthy film Dream for an Insomniac. Perhaps…
 
Quick! What would you do if you were secretly in love with your horrible best friend's fiancee for years and never told him, but then he told you he was also in love with you for years and never told you, but he seems to have no real interest in figuring out what he wants to do and his wedding is quickly approaching and also Jim Halpert keeps yelli…
 
Our Summer of Weddings and Margs swaggers onward with a rom (?) com (??) that's somehow so shitty it nearly circles back around to having something to say about masculinity and relationships (ALMOST). Listen in with Leigh, Brendan, and Chris as they watch and discuss 2008's My Best Friend's Girl starring Dane Cook, Kate Hudson, Jason Biggs, Alec Ba…
 
Our Summer of Weddings and Margaritas rolls on relentlessly like some fire-breathing atomic bridezilla, but for this episode we take a breather to focus on the subject of subtext in movies and how it relates to the viewer's interpretation of the film and how a fandom can then take that and run manically with it all over fanfiction.net. As the movie…
 
Today I talk with BENJAMIN LOEB. A wonderful Cinematographer & Filmmaker who shot two of my very favorite films...the beautifully cathartic PIECES OF A WOMAN...and the insane fever dream otherwise known as MANDY. We get into how every project with a director is a custom job…from entering the strange world of @PanosCosmatos, to the cinematic troupe …
 
Mon dieu! Le mariage- elle est trop grand! Alors, une question: que se passe-t-il lorsque les parents adoptifs divorcés d'un jeune homme adopté, sa mère biologique conservatrice et plusieurs autres membres de la famille à peine développés assistent tous à son grand mariage? Eh bien, rien de drôle, c'est sûr. Rejoignez Leigh, Brendan et Chris alors …
 
Today, I sit down with legendary screenwriter. We talk about his life and his craft and why we should all be more generous of spirit. Truth be told, Eric has been involved in creating so many iconic films that it would have been impossible to try...so I asked him about the films of his that meant the most to me, and he held court and digressed in t…
 
Today I talk with Gigi Williams, an Oscar Nominated Makeup Artist, and longtime collaborator with the brilliant David Fincher. Her credits are very long, but to name a few: Rock N’ Roll High School, The Howling, The Professional, as well as Single Man, Argo, The Master & Inherent Vice, not to mention her work with Fincher: Gone Girl, Mindhunters, a…
 
Hey Everybody…sometimes when I have a guest on…there’s just too much to cover…which means we need a sequel…another chapter…a rematch…and that’s why today on the program, I’m talking once more to the fantastic Cinematographer, Thomas Newton Sigel…when I first had him on, the film he shot with the Russo Brothers, CHERRY, had not yet come out. I wante…
 
Two years ago, in the Before Times, we did this sort-of game thing where we prepared lists of movies that at least one person had seen but at least one other person had not. We then used that list to try to describe what we thought the plots of these movies were to see how close our cage impressions were to the real thing. With the long-awaited ada…
 
Please, please, don't confuse 1994's I Love Trouble with Nothing But Trouble, though both are equally unpleasant movies (albeit in wildly different ways) and both spend about the same amount of effort on compelling romance. For our nicest episode ever, we watch this aptly-forgotten Charles Shyer / Nancy Meyers romantic (?) crime thriller (??) starr…
 
With vaccines becoming readily available and the CDC spinning out new guidelines at a bizarre rate, it seems like our long international nightmare might finally be nearly over (but just that one). For this mini episode, Leigh, Brendan, and Chris all take a look back on how they spent their pandemic quarantines. What did we binge? What did we watch …
 
On this episode of Why Did We Watch This, we welcome back both Michelle Pfeiffer and Catherine Zeta-Jones for their fourth (!) appearance in one of our movies (in so much as you can call it an appearance if they never actually show up on screen, but at least they both actually tried unlike the rest of the cast). That's right, we're watching Sinbad:…
 
Today I sit down with my old friend Christine Romero. For many years she worked and lived alongside the iconic George A. Romero who created Night of the Living Dead, Dawn of the Dead, among others. But what you don’t know is Chris made those movies alongside him. We get into Chris’s humble beginnings in Pittsburgh, to acting, to producing, to worki…
 
Going off of our generation's love of 1980s nostalgia, it's a sore spot that we're not getting the glut of weird-ass original fantasy movies we were getting during that decade. In a world where the majority of fantasy movies that are kind of close to original are live-action remakes of Disney fairy tales, there's a lot of fantastical crap to wade t…
 
We can all agree that two people in relationships acting as though they're having some sort of affair is pretty questionable, but what if the universe itself demands that these half-dimensional wisps of character sketches should be together for some inexplicable reason? Well, then you'd have Serendipity, a charmless 2001 romcom starring John Cusack…
 
On this episode I speak with Production Designer Grace Yun. We get into her work on Hereditary with Ari Aster, collaborating with Master Filmmaker Paul Schrader, working in Television and being yourself. She has wonderful advice for anyone who wants to become a filmmaker, and talks about how we have to try and tell stories about who we are and why …
 
In an effort to do justice to those characters long shunted to the side for various reasons, Leigh, Brendan, and Chris talk about their favorite side characters in movies and TV shows. Who are these champions of protagonist support, so often doing the heavy lifting of keeping the plot interesting or the jokes a-popping? Why are they often so much m…
 
Imagine, if you will, a world where Disney was so desperate for a franchise that they threw a bunch of cinematic spaghetti at the wall and ended up with "a sort-of prequel to a movie we don't own but not really and it will star James Franco and be directed by Sam Raimi and cost over $200 million." Well, you don't have to imagine it, you just have t…
 
WE'RE BACK with consistently better sound quality (comparatively speaking) and a mini episode that mandated we actually put effort into this. That's right, it's the return of the Pitcher's Mound and this time Leigh, Brendan, and Chris are all attempting to pitch feature-length adaptations of fairy tales. FUN FACT, many fairy tales don't follow any …
 
Today I sit down with a legendary cinematographer Newton Thomas Sigel. We talk about how documentaries taught him to be in the moment, and the relationship between non-fiction and narrative filmmaking. It's a very interesting talk with a fascinating artist and man. Enjoy! RECOMMENDED VIEWING: The Usual Suspects, Three Kings, Confessions of a Danger…
 
Today, we have a special treat…Production Designer Donald Graham Burt returns to talk about designing and making MANK…David Fincher’s love letter to old Hollywood & California, and the portrait of a man in conflict with everyone. It is a masterclass in filmmaking and the power of limitations from the most humble of masters. RECOMMENDED VIEWING: Cit…
 
In advance, we apologize for the questionable audio of this podcast and the questionable decision to have a bunch of bros make a movie about how they're suffering in the friend zone. But also it's Christmas (yes, once again, as time isn't real) and we've got Julie Hagerty! Join Leigh, Brendan, and Chris for 2005's Just Friends, a Ryan Reynolds romc…
 
Today I sit down with Producer Mollye Asher and she takes us on her journey from dancer to filmmaker, and reminds us that we love making movies because of the people we make them with. She talks about her very special relationship with Writer/Director Chloe Zhao, working with non-actors, and the incredible amount of craft it takes to turn reality i…
 
With the entire world on fire and everything going to hell, it can be comforting to take solace in movies (and television) you're familiar with rather than risk feeling new sensations by indulging in the unfamiliar. For this mini, Leigh, Brendan, and Chris discuss their rewatching habits- what movies they liked but will never want to see again, and…
 
In the very first episode of my podcast, I sit down with Production Designer Donald Graham Burt. We explore the role of the Production Designer, a life in the arts, working with David Fincher, and learn to talk less and listen more. RECOMMENDED VIEWING: The Joy Luck Club, The Curious Case of Benjamin Button, Gone Girl, The Girl with Dragon Tattoo, …
 
Lace up your hoverboots and strap on your black villain cape complete with voluminous sleeves, it's time for Why Watch Ascending! That's right, we're kicking off 2021 with the Wachowski's 2015 sci-fi-space-opera-which-feels-like-a-fan-fic-but-somehow-isn't, Jupiter Ascending! Join the three Dratpaxus siblings Leigh, Brendan, and Chris as we discuss…
 
UP ON THE KNEES OF A SERGEANT MAJORRIDE THROUGH THE WOODS WITH THE WIND IN YOUR HAIRSILVER BELLS ON A STOLEN REINDEERWHILE WE RACE TO THE CASTLE OVER THEREIt's our usual lazy day look back on the year in review, an awful awful year full of awful awful movies and some pretty good drinks. What were our favorites and what should be consigned to the du…
 
Finally, the prophecy has been fulfilled. No, not the prophecy that a human would become the elf king and lead them all to salvation (hey, not at all played out or uncomfortable!), but the prophecy that we made ages ago when we said we'd do The Christmas Chronicles 2 as a follow-up to the OG Christmas Chronicles episode we did two years ago. So, he…
 
December is almost upon us, and with it a plethora of original holiday-related programming. Instead of focusing on of of the ones with a Christmas ghost or some other supernatural hook (next time!), we discuss a Netflix original miniseries we all found ourselves binging very very quickly, Dash & Lily. As another adaptation based off of a jointly-wr…
 
Back in the Before Times when movies were actually a thing you could go to, it was customary for studios to start dropping Oscar bait movies in late fall and continue throughout the holiday season. It's always fun to look back on which ones never ended up getting the little golden men they were angling for, and for our November episode we look at a…
 
OOOOOO PRETTY SNARKY, EH? It's been over a year (or maybe like three months time isn't real anymore who knows) since the finale of Game of Thrones aired and disappointed nearly everyone with its rushed plotting, shoddy characterizations, and shots of Dany making it look like she has dragon wings. Since then, we've all entered into a collective pact…
 
Welcome, boys and GHOULS, to our annual Halloween Spooktacular featuring The Haunting! Yes, this is Jan de Bont's 1999 CGI-encrusted remake of Shirley Jackson's classic story of horror and pulsating doors, not the 1961 classic, or the Netflix series based off the same source material, or The House on Haunted Hill, or the remake of The House on Haun…
 
Remember that thing that was going around twitter a while ago where people were listing the top five television shows that explained who they were as a person? Remember? Before all this other stuff that happened? Well, we do and so we're doing it but instead of just saying what the five television shows that define ourselves are, we're making every…
 
What do you get when you take Patrick Dempsey, the writers of The Hangover, the director of The Lion King, and a group of esteemed and notable actors and lock them all up together in a bank overnight? Did you guess Flypaper? No? You've never even heard of it? Oh. Well, you get Flypaper, a 2011 crime comedy that opened at Sundance and then everyone …
 
No, we didn't forget how to count, but we ARE going a bit off schedule this week to feature our final episode of Why Don't We Watch This. This week we talk about Shane Black's The Nice Guys, a rollicking mystery comedy adventure set in the 1970s if your average film reviewer or podcaster named Chris is to be believed! Turns out when you watch a gre…
 
No, not that Beauty and the Beast, god forbid! The bad one. The one where all the charm and heart of the original animated classic was replaced with CGI glop and soulless autotune and Stanley Tucci as a harpsichord that shoots keys at people (we didn't say EVERY change was bad). Leigh, Brendan, and Chris discuss the uncanny valley recreation of you…
 
In this continuation of our mini mini-series Why Don't We Watch This, we discuss Strange Days. No, not the prolonged Kafka-esque fever dream that is 2020, the 1995 Kathryn Bigelow directed cyberpunk neo-noir film starring Ralph Fiennes and Angela Bassett. Heads up, this movie is Intense with a capital I, as in the optical organs you may want to ave…
 
It’s been over four months since we all started working from home, and it’s leaving us nostalgic for the things we used to be able to do, like physically touch our loved ones and ride public transportation to our places of work. Accordingly, we decided to put ourselves back in that state of mind by watching Jaume Collet-Serra‘s 2018 thriller The Co…
 
In which we continue our summer of watching things that are good but we haven't all seen by watching Preston Sturges's 1941 screwball comedy The Lady Eve, starring Barbara Stanwyck and Henry Fonda and a cartoon snake. Also we use this movie as a jumping off point to talk about our thoughts on screwball comedies (good!) and the weird way Nancy Meyer…
 
What could be more timely than a comedy where a millennial sacrifices her entire identity to fulfil the mad whims of a wildly wealthy older white couple? Don't worry! She's white and kind of well off and doing this voluntarily, so it's fun!!! Yes, it's The Nanny Diaries, a film à clef based on the chick lit beach read where recent college graduate …
 
We continue our miniseries of indeterminable length with another movie that we enjoy watching JUST BECAUSE, Carl Reiner's 1993 sex thriller parody, Fatal Instinct. Also we talk about parody movies in general and why some of them work better than others. And this one doesn't always even work all the time! But hey, where else can you get Armand Assan…
 
As the disgraced knight Bowen says, "Dreams die hard and you hold them in your hands long after they've turned to dust." Similarly, when some of us revisited the 1996 fantasy / CGI test feature Dragonheart, we also found that our memories of a beloved childhood film had also turned to dust. Take away the once-impressive (?) computer-generated costa…
 
Look, we really enjoy watching a bad movie but sometimes even we have limits. So while everything in the world is going to hell, we thought maybe we should watch a GOOD movie that not all of us have seen. Ergo this exceedingly wordy minisode miniseries, Why Don't We Watch This. And for our inaugural ep, we got some food and drinks and decided to wa…
 
Nothing better reflects the state of the world right now than a bunch of ominous and spooky events that have no real relation to each other and keep getting worse and worse, and boy, does The Mothman Prophecies have that in spades! Leigh, Brendan, and Chris try to make sense of the vague supernatural nonsense, piece together what the hell is trying…
 
One way to get through your social distancing quarantine to watch a lot of movies, and another way is to wildly speculate about how these movies could have been changed in some way. That's our whole thing! This time, we tweak that whole thing a little bit by speculating about what movies would have been like if they had a different director behind …
 
What better way to spend your COVID-19 quarantine than by listening to a podcast about a 1991 Kathleen Turner movie that no one remembers? Join hard-drinking gumshoes Leigh, Brendan, and Chris as they dredge up the celluloid carcass of V.I Warshawski from the Chicago River and conduct a post-mortem to determine what killed the whole endeavor. Could…
 
Truly, there is no easier way to shake up a movie industry mired in the safe and predictable AND enrage a certain sector of the Internet than by swapping the gender of one or more of your film's characters. It is, literally, the easiest way to increase the representation of women or make male characters mildly less dull- all you have to do is some …
