Undead. They’re all the same. They’re pushy and whiny and they're all only after ONE thing… Or at least that’s the case with this week’s movies: 2001’s Kairo (Pulse) and 1985’s Return of the Living Dead! Coming in late due to a brief bout with morbidity, host Blake takes us on a roller coaster of emotions, from depressive dread to freewheeling ...…
 
Welcome back class. This week your homework assignment was Arthur (1981) and Weekend at Bernie's (1989), where we'll be discussing what methods make your characters more sympathetic, or less. One film takes what should be a group of unlikable leads and makes us empathize with them, while the other left Ally cheering for the quasi-villain.We'll ...…
 
Woop Woop! That's the sound of the police! Don't sweat it; as long we all tell the same story, no one's doing time. Just like in The Usual Suspects and Inside Man! With Robin Hoods and charming devils alike on the corkboard, Ally has our forensics team dusting themes of trust, truth, and lies, and the thin, thin lines between them. Here in N.W. ...…
 
So, basically... Blake screwed up. My bad. In lieu of a stand-and-deliver episode on cinematic theory (which, evidently, I was unable to stand up and deliver), I'm democratizing the process and giving you all the uncommented-upon side-topics and media that we DID try to discuss before I went and made a mess of things. There's some really intere ...…
 
This week on I’m The Host, chef Blake is behind the stove with sous chefs Ally and Kurt, and we’re going to show YOU how to cook with some REAL bad eggs we just had shipped in from The Dark Knight (2008) and Funny Games (2007). For a firm omelette, beat three main characters--a father, a mother, and a child--until blended. Stir in firearms, exp ...…
 
As you may have noticed, your feeds are one episode short of a full week. Our bad. We WILL return; it just may not be as soon as we had previously hoped. Work, life, and flooring installer schedules have all conspired to keep us from being able to hit our release window. As the holidays come to a close, however, we anticipate things going back ...…
 
Could the secret sauce of good work be...respect for and investment in your employees? Weighing in on this bizarre take, Kurt has us watch one of the worst cases of employee neglect: 2018's Upgrade. Mustaches will unfurl and monocles will pop as we discuss the business model that enabled Leigh Whannell's sci-fi beat-em-up to exist, along with o ...…
 
Howdy, y'all! It seems our little podcast got washed out this week, and due to the technical snafu Blake sat down and recorded a little filler episode, holding forth on what movies he's seen recently. Hopefully we'll be back next time with our previously-scheduled episode on Blumhouse--see you soon!By Allayne Duncan, Blake Vaughn, Kurt Duncan
 
"Unnnnnnnhhhhh…. Uuuuhhhhhh! Brrrrraiiiiiiiinnssssss…" Yeah, that's what you’d LIKE to hear, isn't it? Well too bad! This week Ally, our understudy of the undead, is exhuming the zombie genre as we talk Train to Busan (2016) and The Girl With All The Gifts (2016). We'll find out where all the bodies are buried in the history of zombie lore, fro ...…
 
A videotape lands on your doorstep... An estranged friend emails you out of the blue... You may be tempted to respond, to reach out to a familiar hand...but what if it doesn't let go? This week, Blake inaugurates spooky season with two movies about movies in movies that are actually kind of one movie? We're sitting down with creative duo Justin ...…
 
Get your trigger fingers ready and fire up the random seed generator; it's time for that great American pasttime--SPORT! This week, Kurt gets the ball rolling, using the rising popularity of eSports to pitch an old sticky wicket: what makes a sport different from a game?(We Monday-morning quarterbacks may not have a slam-dunk answer, but we kee ...…
 
We're finishing our mystery mini arc with the original kid dectives, Nancy Drew and the Hardy Boys. While we look at the first book in each series--The Secret of the Old Clock (1930) for Nancy Dew and The Tower Treasure (1927) for the Hardy Boys--we'll chat about laissez-faire parenting, a girl changed by rewrites, one man's obsession with name ...…
 
Three little hosts sat down to have funWith Agatha Christie's "And Then There Were None". Two little hosts dissected some tropesWith bad tricks and herring and Red Dwarf jokes(One little host, editing the podcastHe finished it late, but here it is at last.) EPISODE LINKS(Blake's mock map of the island based on descriptions in book.)((Blake's... ...…
 
Today's episode is brought to you by shots, shots, and more shots. (Of the alcohol, gun and camera varieties). We're looking at The Thin Man (1934) and talking about how a few years' difference can really change a setting for a movie, as well as prohibition, dogs, and relationship goals. We also talk witty quips, classic drink recipes, and when ...…
 
In this episode we're taking a book club look at They Both Die at the End by Adam Silvera. In a world where you recieve a 24-hour warning before the day of your death, what does this do to society, or an individual's day-to-day life? The hosts also discuss what they'd do on their last day, characterization vs representation, and the age for dri ...…

Good evening, boys and ghouls! This episode we're looking at shows that were once dead and have clawed their way back out of the grave (for better or worse). We'll be reviewing television shows that jumped to new channels, programs that come back after extended hiatuses, and big-screen reimaginings. We also find time to talk about toxic twitter ...…
 
It's all fun and games until someone gets shot. We're looking for Chekov's Gun and talking about splitting the party so we can search for a murderer. Ally has us looking at tropes in movies with Clue (1985) and Game Night (2018). We look at who is the blonde airhead, did the butler really do it, and was it really all part of the plan? But aside ...…
 
Alright, settle down, class. Settle down... This is Bowie 102 covering the last thirty-seven years of David Bowie's career: early 80's rise to popularity, late 80's decline, 90's revival, and death. If you came here looking for "Classical Knives of America, 1830 to Present" you are in the wrong room--that's down the hall in 118 with instructor ...…
 
Welcome to your first day of Bowie 101! This introductory course covers thirty-two years of David Bowie, from 1947 to 1979, spanning his vaudville, pop rock, glam rock, heavy metal, and funk/soul periods, as well as the Berlin trilogy. Our full two-part course will also span such topics as suing Napster, musical numbers from A Knight's Tale, ba ...…
 
He is the sworn protector of the city. The wild blue yonder. He is The Tick. But which Tick are we talking about? All of them, we're looking at the Fox kids cartoon show (1994), the Fox live-action sit-com (2001) and the Amazon streaming live-action version (2016), and even some talk about the comic is involved. We talk about what the changes i ...…

Focus revolves around Logan, the MCU, and Deadpool. We also talk about Thelma and Louise, Seven Samurai, and Unforgiven Note:This episode contains no Infintity War spoilers because Kurt and Al ...…
 
As our jobs all got in the way of our recording schedule this week, we sat down for a short [read: long], off-the-cuff episode. We get into the recent events surrounding the Simpsons'/Apu debacle since recording that episode, and then spend the rest of our time gushing about all the great media we have watched/played/read/listened to lately. (D ...…
 
One of us always tells lies...one of us always tells the truth...but what IS the truth, really? We're digging deep this week with the films Rashomon and Life of Pi, discussing absolutes, equivocations, and whether a single noble lie can balance out a thousand false promises. We'll also discuss Satre's concepts of "bad faith" and "the look" (na ...…
 
Strange things are afoot at the Kwik-E-Mart this week as we look into the documentary The Problem With Apu and three classic Apu-centric episodes of The Simpsons to see if these charges are warrented, and if the writers ever got better at writing Indian characters. We also take time to talk about James Woods' career (or lack thereof), Indian co ...…
 
It's rare for an artist to remake a work from their early career. With Spike Lee's remake of She's Gotta Have It, we're looking at the differences between the film (1986) and the web-series (2017) with a big helping hand from our guest Samantha from Rocket Punch Radio. With art, music, sexuality, and civil unrest on the table, we also found tim ...…
 
We interupt this podcast to bring you a quick episode about Black Panther...only there was so much to say that it turned into a full episode anyway. And despite all three hosts enjoying themselves, it didn't keep them from picking all manner of nits from this excellent film. We also talk about racial politics, familial conections, and the etymo ...…
 
It's time to sharpen your teeth on the bones of your "father"! We're looking at Good Will Hunting and Whiplash and talking about surpasing your father(s), the genesis of genius, and how to steal your father's prized possesions (be it an orchestra or just a really good line). We also talk Saint's Row, super saiyans, and Nietzsche's dog. Links fo ...…
 
A short episode dealing with nostalgia, Nintendo and the many applications of cardboard. Links for this episode: Nintendo Labo debut - youtube.com Movie Bob's Alternative Nintendo Labo debut - youtube.com How to pronounce Nintendo Labo - nintendosoup.comBy Allayne Duncan, Blake Vaughn, Kurt Duncan
 
Kurt takes us into the world of the mafia and the FBI with the 1990 movie "My Blue Heaven". This not-at-all-accurate glimpse into their world is all in service of the question: "Is this movie good, or is Kurt just nostalgic?" All three hosts come to agreement pretty quickly, so they spend sometime talking about caricature versus character, why ...…
 
In our 49th episode, Ally has us look at 2008's Speed Racer--a movie that in her opinion never got the recognition it deserved. We have a discussion on the movie's merits (and demerits) and Blake and Kurt follow up with other works they felt fell into the same pit of underappreciation. We also talk about movies we'd love to see made, the import ...…
 
Blake puts the final stab on our holiday episodes, with the holiday movie about another character who sees you when your sleeping, who knows when your awake, and who may make overbroad presumptions about your guilt and/or innocence. We're watching the 1974 movie Black Christmas, and talking about societial changes, horror tropes, and just how c ...…
 
Just in time for the holidays we decided to watch Frank Capra's perennial holiday classic, It's a Wonderful Life. But why was this the movie that became one of the great Christmas classics? And why is so little of this movie set at Christmas time? And does this movie have anything to do with holiday depression? (And is it really such a wonderfu ...…
 
Ally kicks off our Christmas season with A Miracle on 34th Street (1947) and Elf (2003). With these movies in hand, she's questioning the true meaning of Christmas, why it is that there have been so few memorable Christmas movies in recent years, and how well the classics really hold up. More broadly, we discuss consumerism, capitialism, cardio ...…
 
It's the Wrath of Lacan as Blake has us watch Slavoj Zizek's The Pervert's Guide to Cinema in a backdoor attempt at explaining Lacanian psychology. This episode is full of phallic symbols, and the fatherly figure you must overcome. Come and decide for yourself which of us is the id, ego, and superego. We also discuss musicals in the key of auth ...…
 
Kurt brings Lego Batman to the show for a wonder at what life after grimdark looks like. We also take some time to talk about Batman as myth rather than comics media, as well as Nietzche, Billy D. Williams, and Bojack Horseman (three people who have never been in Kurt and Ally's kitchen). Links for this episode: Death of the Family - Wiki The R ...…
 
"Its!" Pennywise (the dancing clown) is here to take us all down to Killer Clown College: we're looking at both the 1990 and the 2017 adaptations of Stephen King's It. (Ally loves clowns so much she subjected us all to five hours of them.) While comparing these two films, we'll also offer tactical advice on fighting groups of children, a discus ...…
 
Blake is excited for Guillerrmo Del Toro's The Shape of Water, but it's not out yet. So we're looking at Let Me In instead and the problems that plague monster-human relationships with it. Also discussed: What makes a monster? Do Beauty and the Beast need a good counselor? Can a monster ever be a part of society? And--most importantly of all--w ...…
 
It's Octobereen for I'm The Host, that special time of year where we open the dark carnival of horror again. This year we're kicking off with Tucker and Dale vs Evil and the broader trend of meta-horror movies. What is meta-horror? How is meta-horror? Why is meta-horror!? Kurt's Notes: Our next episode will be using Let Me In (the American adap ...…
 
Ally has us checking out the first season of My Hero Academia (/Boku No Hero Academia). She asking questions about heroism and what makes a hero, what traits are necessary for one to go from zero to hero? Kurt's Notes: Ally's track was echo-y but I don't think it's too bad, our recording situation has changed and I'm working on trying to get it ...…
 
This week we looked at David Lynch's Mulholland Drive to try and piece together what is going on and what went on and what all the goings on really mean. We also discover which is the worst Budweiser product and give name to a new sex act. Links: Silencio! No Hay Conectar! There are no links!By Allayne Duncan, Blake Vaughn, Kurt Duncan
 
It's Muhammad Ali versus George Foreman, as Kurt has us watch the Rumble in the Jungle and then duke it out with much bigger questions about society versus publicity. We also get into major events of the 60s and 70s, why this match was held at 4 A.M., and how George Foreman's dog was a bad ambassador. Come watch as three people who know virtual ...…
 
Ally has us take a look at the book A Monster Calls, while we chat about grief and mourning: it's not not just for kids anymore! We also explored some of the differences between the book and it's movie adaptation, e.g. the relative merits of Jason Isaacs vs Liam Neeson. Kurt's notes: We changed the way we recorded again. And it sounds great...e ...…
 
Blake has us watch Troll 2 and the companion documentary Best Worst Movie because he hates us and also himself. Also, so that we can talk about enjoyable bad movies what characteristics they have. Can you make a good-bad movie on purpose? Why do people find them enjoyable? Is Blake actually the only troll in this episode? Find out this week on ...…
 
With the Guardians of the Galaxy and Big Hero 6 getting surprisingly big-budget movies for less-well-known comics, we ask what comics would be great to pull for developing a new series or cinematic release? Kurt brings in Marvel's Exiles and Image's Invincible as examples, but with suggestions from Ally, Blake, and the Grown-Ass Geeks, you'll h ...…
 
Ally takes us to the theater for our first recent release, Wonder Woman (2017). There are spoilers galore, but we also talk about blind casting, feminism, and the female gaze. (Is that even a thing yet?) And because this is a super-long episode, we'll also get into the troubles of casting a historical figure as a villain, the horrors of World W ...…
 
From another dimension (another dimension (another dimension)), a soundtrack for a movie that this world had never seen (Sunset Blood by Starcadian) fell into our hands! We peer into this artifact with our ear-eyes and try and decipher the plot to the missing movie. Who is Ronnie? What is a Pompey Pirate? What is the significance of the floppy ...…
 
In this episode about how to make a good remake, we're looking at westernized anime Voltron in two incarnations: Defender of the Universe (1984) and Legendary Defender (2016). We also poke fun at the sillier parts of Voltron and talk about good remakes of past, present, and (we hope) future. Dept. of Corrections: Kerberos is an actual moon of P ...…
 
The battle for animation supremacy rages on. In the meantime we're looking at RWBY and Soul Eater to see how culture defines the heroes, villains, gender norms, teamwork, and badass weapons therein, and what--if anything--this tells us about eastern and western cultures. We also look at how to give souls to inanimate objects, the origins of all ...…
 
Coming soon (as soon as you download it)--a podcast which is sick of misleading trailers will try to figure out the secrets to spotting bad movies with good trailers and debate whether movies would be better if we ignored trailers altogether. We also give a quick history survey, and talk about how these movie ads have changed over time. Plus st ...…
