It's time for another movie that was one of the most important films to me growing up. Not only did I watch this all the time, I get the chance to explore it as an adult. I enlisted Jai and Charles who weren't as familiar with this emotional story starring Joseph Mazzello and Brad Renfro. We get into our Oscar rage yet again, casting choices, frogs…
 
What can I say about this episode? I had a chat with Troy McEady about literally any and all things pop culture nostalgia. This is an interview I've been chasing for a while so I could activate my reality tv brain with another superfan. We get into the good ol days of MTV shows and of course the VMAs, Real Housewives and the "old" Bravo, and what w…
 
Candy is an indie film starring Heath Ledger and Abbie Cornish in an intoxicating and harrowing portrait of love and addiction. This is one that has been on my list to talk about since the start of the podcast. Some elements of Candy have really stuck with me. Me and Jai have a history with this film and we get the dark and sad moments that realist…
 
Omg I'm so excited the day is finally here that we're reviewing Face/Off. I have a thing for these 90s action films and the crazier the better. What could be more nuts than a facial transplant surgery with little to no recovery time and a hell of a prison escape cat and mouse game? On this episode me and Charles have Manny along to talk one of the …
 
It's the New Year and we're back with more 90s films. This is the interesting part of the the show now because there are still so many essential films from the decade I haven't seen. The Crying Game is one of those films that has been on my list. Charles selected this one and I'm so glad I've finally experienced it. We get into the Oscars drama tha…
 
There isn't much to say except that I saw 9 1/2 Weeks for the first time a few months ago and I had a MANY thoughts. I texted Charles immediately that we had to do an episode about it and it got wild. This episode first premiered on the Patreon and for the holiday season it's time for it to go public! Tis the season! 🧣🍯 --- Get OVER 80 BONUS episod…
 
What is there even to say about one of the cultural touchstones in early 00s cinema? There is a shared history that we all have with this film and me, Jules, and Mikey had a fucking time talking it. We get into the awesomely classic fashion, our own adolescent tales, and the quotes we use on a REGULAR basis. Enjoy because Mean Girls is a holiday mo…
 
Gah! This documentary all three of us have been waiting to talk about and break down on the pod. We all have such different connections to this era in music that has stuck with us for the past twenty years. There was sooo much emphasis on The Strokes in this film but also goes into the formation of Yeah Yeah Yeahs, Interpol, The Moldy Peaches, LCD …
 
It's finally time to talk a John Waters film here on the pod. Perfect because this is Charles' pick! I have never actually seen it and boy was it a side splitting time. With incredible casting and the adorable Edward Furlong & Christina Ricci. We get into why Tina is EVERYTHING, the many quotes, and why movie critics sometimes suck. off-topic rants…
 
Well...we're here. It's literally Jai's favorite film and she's been on edge waiting until we talked it here on the pod. It has been at least 20 years since I've seen this so it was a weird wild time revisiting it. In my previous watch I had no idea just how incredible the cinematography and production design was. While it's been inspiring creative…
 
Wow, what a steamy version of Batman and the gang that I never realized until watching and discussing all these years later. Bruce Wayne and the caped crusader are my all time fav comic hero so I'm jazzed to talk all things Gotham. Me and Mikey, (my resident comic nerd friend) get all into the controversy surrounding the themes in this film, the am…
 
It felt sooo good to get my thoughts out on this show that literally shaped my tv habits in high school. We're talking 'call your friends on commercial break' kinda show. We're focusing on Seasons 1 & 2 in this preview episode. To hear the rest of the episode on seasons 3 & 4 join the Patreon! Charles gives his thoughts as someone who watched this …
 
It's time for another staple in the cinematic year of 1999. A year that will go down in history as releasing some of the most culturally relevant films of the modern age. For this episode we're talking American Beauty by Sam Mendes and written by Alan Ball. This is one of me and Charles' essential 90s films and it was good to really examine all the…
 
What do you get when you have werewolves, Christina Ricci, Jesse Eisenberg, and Joshua Jackson in an underdeveloped trainwreck of a film? You have a literal 'cursed' movie. It's always more fun to rag on movies that are totally ridiculous in every sense of the word with a cast that you fully enjoy. That's exactly what happened when I showed Charles…
 
Again, what a weird selection I've made for this October month. This is a film that I doubt anyone has seen but a few out there. Originally titled "Dead Man's Curve", it was the second film in the same year with this weird urban legend roommate scam. I roped Mikey into watching this and pretty much pointing out what we would change or just air our …
 
It's October and we had to talk one of the foundation films of the thriller/horror genre, Psycho (1960) by Alfred Hitchcock. There are so many references to this film throughout history and for good reason. Me, Mikey, and Charles get into the tawdry opening scenario, why we need more story of Marion and her 40k, and try to figure out Norman and his…
 
Time to drop into a Sofia Coppola pastel dream world of Marie Antoinette. This film meant so much to me seeing it ages ago that I couldn't believe we hadn't covered it yet. Jules and Jai are along for this candy pink and blue journey through 18th century France. There are so many points to touch on in this one. We get into the FASHION, the SOUNDTRA…
 
⚔️ It's October and it's vampire season baby! I forgot how much I looove this movie. We're talking Blade, the first film that started the MCU mania that we have today. Not only is Wesley Snipes the best ever, but the fashion, and the Deacon Frost of it all is just... Me and Mikey of course talk about why we love a vampire story, lots of behind the …
 
Well, it's taken us about two years but we are finally diving into the waters of the 90s 'made for TV' movies. It was only right that the first one we reviewed was the cult classic, Mother May I Sleep with Danger? I was more than excited to get Charles' thoughts as a first time viewer and it was as wild as expected. We get into how the tv landscape…
 
This episode was first featured on our Patreon! This is my favorite episode of this seven part series for obvious reasons. It covers Nirvana and also introduced me to a bunch of other bands as well. Featuring one of my favorite people in music, Henry Rollins who gives his takes on the scene in the 80s. We hear from the producers on the construction…
 
What a dark and yet somehow warm indie film. I vaguely remember watching this in high school and thinking it was really dark and mean but still there was something else there I liked. I enlisted Jules, the queen of quirky comedies to review this one with me. We get into sooo many things in the film that couldn't be done now, the hilarious quotes, a…
 
For the next venture into classic cinema we're looking at the origins of the buzz word that everyone talks about, Gaslight. This film from 1944 is a literal masterclass in acting and film noir study. This was one of the first films that introduced me into the old Hollywood world and I'm glad that Charles is with me discussing this brilliant and riv…
 
I mean what's another excuse to rewatch Clueless for the millionth time than to do a remix of our original episode. We didn't have format back then so me and Jai just had to talk about it again! More behind the scenes! More costumes! More everything! ---- Get OVER 70 BONUS episodes on 90s & 00s TV and culture (Freaks & Geeks, My So Called Life, Buf…
 
Oh the depressive nostalgia of your 20s is upon us. Yeah, you guessed it we're talking Garden State. It reads like a 75% memoir of writer/director Zach Braff and literally hit me and Jai right in the feels during our rewatch. There were so many familiar emotions that came rushing back including how this soundtrack defined the 'indie generation' of …
 
Get Glam! Get wild! Get kinda Bowie and Iggy? It's time to venture down the road of the 70s and glam rock. This styling is right up Jai's alley and we break down the looks we love and identify the future fashion it inspires. I on the other hand drool over Christian Bale in a baby tee. off topic rants: Party Monster and the top 10 most popular episo…
 
This one I've been looking forward to for a long while. I've got Recho Omondi on the line for a conversation all about the 90s shows we loved growing up, our print fashion magazine origins as teens, and touch on points about fashion today. I ask all about the story behind her color green signature, evolution of fashion in television, and get into s…
 
This one was heavy. It's been a while since I've seen this film and it's been on my list to review. In a complete perfect casting that really gives such dimension to a difficult story to tell. Me and Jai talk about our research on the controversy surrounding the original source material, Brad Pitt's unusual lukewarm performance, and Brad Renfro. of…
 
I get to talk about gossip culture, reality tv, and find out more about the world of celebrity memoirs with Ashley and Claire of Celebrity Memoir Book Club! You know I love an all over the place convo and we get into things like TikTok, Courtney Love, Meg Ryan movies, and evolution of plastic surgery today. Enjoy! --- Get over 60 BONUS episodes on …
 
It's time to go forward to go back in time as Charles says. For the next 'Back Track' in the series we're talking Alien (1979). This is my first time watching this and boy was I missing out all these years! I was really into it and I'm so glad Charles decided on this one. We talk about the story and how incredible these special effects are, the ste…
 
Another film that is easily in my top tier and we haven't reviewed it until now! Ugh, this movie is kinda gross and amazing at the same time. Me and Jai talk our weird feelings about parts of the story during our recent rewatch, literally FREAK OUT over the fashion, and realize this is Brittany Murphy's movie. off-topic rants include: banned music …
 
This was an intense one. Full of so many emotions and ups and downs throughout. I'm so glad I watched this film with fresh eyes, it has been at least 20 years. I hope more people out there will watch and realize the magic that is, Set It Off from '96. We get into many different points of this story and how the performances by all four leads should …
 
This is one that has been on my list for a while. It's a dicey late 90s film which were popular at the time. Mikey has some interesting thoughts as a first time watcher and for me this has a whole nostalgia factor since it reminds me of high school. We get into the concept of gossip today and how it's now currency, the moody fashion, and the soundt…
 
Both me and Jai were so excited that a mini-series was being made about the Sex Pistols. Who else could possibly capture the chaotic spirit and the energy of London in the 70s but Danny Boyle? All 6 episodes are out now on Hulu (US) but we're just talking the first one for now. We touch on how perfect this series captures the scene in London, the f…
 
It's time for me to nerd out with another Buffy & Marvel fan and the perfect person to talk to is Ian of Slayerfest 98 Podcast! Another semi off the rails convo covering things like: that 'Passion' episode of Buffy, Marvel Top 3, Scream, 90s alternative rock and why it will never die, Agents of Shield, our dream season 2 Yellowjackets casting, we e…
 
CINEMA. That is all. The Birdcage has been one of my favorite films growing up and the only people who could share that emotion are Mikey and Charles. So get ready for tons of impressions, personal stories, and our blind rage at the fact this didn't win all the Oscars in '96. off topic rants include: Seinfeld, Love Island UK, and The English Patien…
 
The first podcast collaboration here on the pod and we're talking 90s with Doom Generation Podcast! Enjoy an hour of the three of us going off the rails at times... Some interesting bits include: y2k fears, the impending Courtney Love memoir, vintage MTV moments (again), what 90s trash tv we watched, and tagging celebs on IG which lead to an intere…
 
Within 10 minutes of watching this film I could quote it by heart. It has been at least 10 years since I've seen it and it still has the same effect all these years later. What a refreshing film filled with heartwarming friendships, broken hearts, and one of the best ensemble casts! Me and Mikey are massive fans and talk our many favorite euphemism…
 
It's like someone took bits from my 17 yr old cynical brain when writing this film. This is my second time watching it and I try to work out why I didn't like it the first time. Jules is the total authority on this film so it has been on the list to review for a while. We chat about the crazy weird story, why we worship Steve Buscemi, and the FASHI…
 
It's been more than time to reach out to other 90s heads out there. This is my first venture in interviewing and I just had to talk with Brandon who runs the instagram account, @1990archives We get into our fave 90s bands and fashion era/brands, why MTV needs more than a reboot, and how he gathers info on the 90s scene for his page. We did a collab…
 
What a film. This is cinema. It was amazing to finally take this in the way it should be. Me and Charles were completely hypnotized for the first 30 minutes and had so many first thoughts. We got into other casting options, the travesty at the 1977 Oscars, the fashion (specifically Betsy), and how this music score was top notch. Off- Topic rants in…
 
Finally we're talking a film from the 90s that created a sub-genre all its own, Pulp Fiction. While you may remember the poster of this film being in every dorm room for 20 years, I remember that iconic Bob from Mia Wallace and the Royale with cheese. Since Me, Charles, and Jai are big Tarantino fans we had a super blast finally talking this pop cu…
 
Wow. What a film. There really must have been something going on in 1999, because so many great films were released that year. Me and Jai touched on so many aspects that we loved including the cinematography, directing, and every stitch of the fashion. And we talked about that neon swimsuit. Off-topic rants include: Val Kilmer, the casting process,…
 
What a wild ride this movie was! I love the music/record industry storylines of 90s movies. This one was sooo ridiculous and hilarious and made me love Brendan Fraser even more than I already do. Me and Jules went a bit off the rails with our music biz talk and basically pointing out how everything isn't as easy as getting your single on the radio …
 
Yes, we're finally chatting the sequel to Trainspotting (1996) for our 'Forward Flash' episode! We had such a blast talking this film, it's probably one of the only sequels that actually holds up to the original and is an utter delight. Me and Jai point out how the characters changed in 20 years and the many nods to the original. The soundtrack, un…
 
Another disturbing film that we both went into not knowing anything about. And we sorta wish it stayed that way. It was through this dark journey we learned all about the underground world of sn*ff films. I basically decided to watch this because of Nicolas Cage and Joaquin Phoenix. Me and Mikey talk about the darkness of 90s film themes, the fact …
 
For some reason about a month ago I decided to watch Twilight and inadvertently watched the whole saga. Now I knew I was definitely late to the game and I wanted to gab about it with my two friends Jules and Charles. This quickly devolved into a pretty unhinged long convo all about our problems with Bella's character, the endless problematic things…
 
No, not that kind of dick. We're talking the Watergate centered comedy from the glorious film year of 1999. This is my first time watching and I'm so glad Charles recommended it for the episode. We didn't know much of the real story but would like to believe that two teenage girls really did break open the case. Me and Charles got into the MANY fas…
 
Another underrated 90s gem! I remember seeing this film ages ago and watching it again now was even better. Talk about a hilarious story with a great theme and an incredible cast! Me and Mikey talked about our love of Clea Duvall and Natasha Lyonne and how they are responsible for some of the most groundbreaking films of the era. We get into the st…
 
I've got my friend Suzy back along with her husband Ben to talk the 1997 David Fincher film, The Game. We've been talking about doing this episode for a while so I was extra curious to see this film for the first time being a Fincher fan. This film really offers up more questions than answers. During our discussion we came up with ideas for a serie…
 
I flew into a late 90s flurry when I saw that episodes of Popular were on Youtube. From the mind of Ryan Murphy in 1999 this is not your typical show about high school. Both me and Mikey are day 1 fans and we talk our history with the show, the evolution of Ryan Murphy, and why Mary Cherry is one of the best tv characters ever. I hope more people d…
