What She’s Having: GROSSE POINTE BLANK

This week we discuss 1997’s Grosse Pointe Blank, starring John Cusack as a hit man, Dan Aykroyd as an evil hit man, and Minnie Driver as his love interest (Cusack’s not Aykroyd’s– that would be weird). We’re joined by Andrew Parker of Dork Shelf to get to the bottom of this funny, somewhat...

This week on the show, we begin our Halloween-themed episodes, and confront our repressed childhood fears, as we rewatch and discuss 1990′s The Witches starring Anjelica Huston, Rowan Atkinson, and a bunch of mouse puppets made by Jim Henson.

What She’s Having: CLUELESS

Check out our latest episode as we discuss the 1995 Amy Heckerling film Clueless. Both an adaptation of Jane Austen’s Emma, and a highschool movie at the start of the teen-movie craze of the late 90s, it’s also a pretty neat time capsule. We discuss Alicia Silverstone, the early 1800s rural English social sphere vs....

Tom Hanks and Meg Ryan star in their best movie together that doesn’t involve the internet or insomnia: Joe Versus the Volcano. It was one of Blain’s favourite movies as a kid, but how does it hold up now? Is the volcano a metaphor for Vietnam? What did we think of Tom Hanks’ scraggily DaVinci...

Check out our latest episode as we discuss the newly released 2014 film The F Word, (or the more generic “What If” to those outside Canada).

Episode 163- AMERICAN BEAUTY

This week on the show we take another look at former Best Picture winner American Beauty– was it the best movie of 1999 or merely the best movie with a torso-based poster? It seemed pretty deep when we were younger, but how does it hold up now? To find out, download the link below, or...

Episode 162- THE UNAUTHORIZED SAVED BY THE BELL STORY

After recently rewatching Saved by the Bell, it was hard to resist checking out the behind-the-scenes TV movie, set in an alternate universe where everyone is a little weirder looking, Mr. Belding has more hair, and Screech is suddenly a badass karate master.
