With the fresh success of my podcast ‘When Straight Meets Gay‘ with Richard Trejo and Trey Melton, I wanted to create my own space where I could just sit and talk with my own guests/friends. So I created ‘Mimosas with Michael.’ This is a podcast where I just sit and talk with people about life, love, art – and the vulnerabilities and joys that make us all human. I come across so many wonderful and fascinating people that I would just grab a mimosas with and talk to – so I hope to share some ...

We're back and demonstrating that last week wasn't a fluke; it's another hour and twenty of cinematic podcast goodness just for you. (Yes, you.) This week mixes it up while still remaining true to our original remit; we discuss who should have won Best Actor at the 1998 Academy Awards. I (Bob) am pretty sure we agreed at the end of the podcast, but…
 
In honor of the Great Pumpkin, this episode is all about scary movies. Well, kinda. Unnerving movies maybe. Okay, Bob's a wimp when it comes to the horror genre and Mark's better, but neither is an aficionado. But we bite the bullet and talk about the movies we like the most that are closest to this genre even if not strictly within it. We avoid sp…
 
This week we end up (largely) agreeing about the Oscar choices we'd make, but we have divergent views on a number of other films (including The Little Mermaid; no, really!). We're nearly arguing as the podcast ends, but pull out the save to end amicably at the last minute. Okay, we were never in any real danger of being disharmonious, perhaps, but …
 
This week the discussion is on the Best Picture nominees that were released in 1994. Bob and Mark disagree a bit on the margins, but end up finding more common ground than...uncommon? It rambles on a bit (almost 90 minutes!), perhaps because of the skipped episode missed while Bob was in Milwaukee at a wedding (only the one, and no funerals). Spoil…
 
Back at it again after it turns out Bob is too lazy to record and upload a podcast solo. Also, he just doesn't like the idea of talking to himself for an hour. After seeing what can happen to folks who have odd quirks like that in one of the films discussed in the episode, can you really blame him? This week we consider the 49th Academy Awards Best…
 
If you love pulled pork products, but hate kids playing Marco Polo in the pool, then grab your sash and tiara and let's go to Mount Rose Minnesota for the incredibly brilliant and groundbreaking look at small-town pageants: DROP DEAD GORGEOUS Rob and Robbie discuss how this movie went from critical failure to queer success, the genius of Allison Ja…
 
Our summer holiday continues with a look at our favorite films adapted from books. No overlap at all with this list with one of us going back nearly 90 years for some picks and the other sticking with more recent works. (Guess who did which!) As before, links to IMDb pages without titles to avoid spoilers, and though we make a greater effort to not…
 
We take a different tack this week and discuss out favorite heist films. (EDIT: It's the 9th episode, not the 8th as I say in the intro.) What would we define as a "heist film"? Never fear, we discuss that too; along with some desultory conversation about the weather. We hope you enjoy this, our shortest podcast to date. (Which is still nearly an h…
 
Wrapping up the look back at Peter Jackson's trilogy of films, this week we consider The Return of the King. (No avoiding spoilers, obviously.) Mark continues to consider it a success, Bob remains persuaded it was a failure. Surprise, surprise. Note: Oscar® and Academy Awards® are the trademarks and service marks of the Academy of Motion Picture Ar…
 
This episode is, like all of them, spoiler heavy. We continue our journey through Jackson's vision of Tolkien's masterpiece with the middle section of The Lord of the Rings. Further ranting from Bob tempered by Mark's voice of moderation. Note: Oscar® and Academy Awards® are the trademarks and service marks of the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and…
 
A bit of a departure from our usual format. We spend the whole episode on The Lord of the Rings: The Fellowship of the Ring (henceforth: FOTR). Join us as we journey into the heart of darkness. (Guess who got to write the show notes.) Note: Oscar® and Academy Awards® are the trademarks and service marks of the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sci…
 
Shakespeare in Love was the controversial Best Picture winner for 1998. Harvey Weinstein is largely credited (blamed?) for instituting the now common practice of lobbying hard for Oscars with this particular film. Years later, this may well be the decision that is most regretted by the current academy. Contending with it that year were another cost…

Today's…

In 1991 Dances with Wolves became the first Western to win Best Picture since Cimarron in 1931. A lot of folks think that this meant Scorsese's Goodfellas got robbed. We watch both films and give you our opinion on the question Note: Oscar® and Academy Awards® are the trademarks and service marks of the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences. …
