#166 – The Tragedy of Macbeth

"Listen, that's Denzel's fault because he likes the same things I do."

Shakespeare rides again for this Movie-Go-Round New to Two, with Brett's pick, The Tragedy of Macbeth (2021). Director and screenwriter Joel Coen went brotherless for this film adaptation of the Scottish play that is nearly as bare-bones as one can get. We talk about the strong performances, the stark black-and-white cinematography, the sometimes surprising casting, David says "yeet" in a surprising context, and Nicole says some variation of "pared down" a lot (do not use it as a drinking game; you will die).

Next episode, we'll be asking "Can We Just Talk About..." 2008's Speed Racer.

#165 – The Proposal

"Andrew's coming back; let's get the canoe out."

You Did This to Us again here at Movie-Go-Round, so we had to watch the Sandra Bullock-Ryan Reynolds rom-com The Proposal. Neither Nicole, David, nor guest Phil Rood had seen this film in its entirety before, which was not a lack that any of us had perceived as a problem previously. Among other topics, we discuss the dearth of character development, the whitest town in Alaska, the use of puppies as currency with the local raptor population, and why you never start the shower without a towel in your hand.

Next episode starts a new go-round, and Brett's choice for New to Two is Joel Coen's The Tragedy of Macbeth.

#164 – Parasite

"It's the Downton Abbey of Korea."

For Movie-Go-Round's latest Around the World pick, David chose the acclaimed Korean movie Parasite. Part con-artist tale, part parable about class warfare under capitalism, this Best Picture winner inspired deep discussion topics such as how wealth insulates and isolates people, how poverty can make moral purity arduous, what happens when the classes cross the lines of what's expected of them, and the heartache of life in a semi-basement.

Next episode will be the You Did This to Us poll winner, the Sandra Bullock-Ryan Reynolds rom-com The Proposal.

#163 – Get Out

"It's a total Gothic horror damsel setup."

This round's Future Classic comes from Nicole's list, and she, David, and guest Terri Lynne Hudson were eager to get into our discussion of Get Out. We covered a little of everything -- homages! Symbolism! Microaggressions! The Sunken Place! The T-S-mothatruckin'-A! And of course the old chestnut of "Is it a thriller or a horror movie?" Come listen and find out!

#162 – Pleasantville

"This reminds me of Frasier."

In this Can We Just Talk About? David brings the 1998 film 'Pleasantville.' Brett, David, and Nicole discuss why this film is a perennial classroom favorite, whether or not Brett understands the plot of 'Click', and, of course, Don Knotts' voice. Pleasantville wears its message on its sleeve - how does that fare all these years later? Also, the crew gets sidetracked... a lot.

#161 – Beyond the Infinite Two Minutes

"What if Primer, but comedy?"

The cycle begins again with Brett's New to Two pick, a time-hoppy microbudget movie from Japan called Beyond the Infinite Two Minutes. It plays with time, staircases, expectations, and monitor cables. We discussed its single-take conceit, the inherent paradoxes, peer pressure, K-dramas, and how smart people with glasses are (pushes frames up nose), among other things. Did David and Nicole enjoy it? Tune in and find out!
