#141 – Withnail and I

"Let's just go ahead and talk about the chicken."

It's Nicole's Movie-Go-Round New to Two pick, and she's chosen the Richard E. Grant showcase (and English comedic cult classic) Withnail and I. This tale of two starving actors who have made a grievous error by going on vacation has something for everyone to appreciate. Did David and Brett appreciate it? We discuss the comedic bits, dramatic bits, possibly homophobic bits (welcome to a movie made in the '80s about the end of the '60s) in this tale of melancholy Brits.

#140 – Fifty Shades of Grey

"All of his surprises for her are just dangerous aviation adventures."

You Did This to Us again, and boy was this a big bucket of yiiiiikes. Your intrepid Movie-Go-Round crew of Brett, David, and Nicole had to watch Fifty Shades of Grey, and while the movie is better than the book, that is a low, low bar. We discuss how this film does kink a disservice while romanticizing a toxic relationship and skimming over real trauma instead of addressing it head-on. Also how there is non-sexy sex in it. And distracting music. And... well, listen for yourself.

#139 – Giorgio Moroder's Metropolis

"We get to talk about classic late-1920s cinema [and] take a dump on Loverboy."

What happens when a disco-pop master producer is in charge of the restoration of an all-time classic of science fiction films? You get a hybrid that is a cultural artifact of the 1920s and the 1980s simultaneously. Nicole's to blame for bringing this Movie-Go-Round Around the World pick, so insistent that she even bought it for Brett for Christmas. Making David watch was just a bonus. The film is easy to find if you want to see it before listening to us "Babel" about it. Check it out!

#138 – Your Name (Kimi No Na Wa)

"It changes us, to go into the unknown."

It was David's turn to choose our Movie-Go-Round Future Classic, and he brought the gorgeous anime Your Name (Kimi No Na Wa). This film adds extra dimensions beyond the body swap concept, reaching into areas that are truly profound. Nicole, Brett, and David talk about liminal spaces, gender roles, the bonds between us, and the ephemeral nature of dreams, among many other things. Join us on our journey!

#137 – For Love or Money

"It's like John Wick, but without the guns."

In this Movie-Go-Round Primeflix Roulette episode, we watched a Michael J. Fox romantic comedy, so you know this movie is wall-to-wall wit and charm, right?... Right?... uh oh... Unfortunately, David, Brett, and Nicole discovered that even the immense charisma of young Mr. Fox is not enough to carry this dead weight of a film, For Love or Money. We got to see a tiny bit of the secret world of a concierge and a lot of a bad "love" story and scheming for one's capitalist dreams. But we had a fun (if briefer than usual) discussion about it. Come listen!

#136 – The Social Network

"Within literally five minutes, you know exactly who this guy is...and you hate him."

You know what's better than a million podcasts? A billion podcasts. For our Movie-Go-Round podcast's New to Two, Brett brought the David Fincher critical smash The Social Network. Somehow David and Nicole were late adopters on this film, but once we got into this tech pool, we dove deep, touching on the topics of exclusivity, entitlement, and rampant insecurity. We discussed the script, the acting, the shots, the iconic score, the iconic trailer, and more. Come listen! You can just lurk if you want to.
