Walking the movie walk, talking the movie talk
 
Even through the "drinking" years, Steve had the presence of mind to start recording and saving his shows. The early shows were recorded on a Betamax and then later on VHS machines. That was the only way to record an entire 4 1/2-hour show without having to remember to change tapes every hour. Subscribers are now the beneficiaries of Steve's foresight with the weekly Descent. From WDAI to the Steve and Garry years to Steve solo on WCKG, The Descent Into The Archives is vintage Steve Dahl.

What a long, strange trip it’s been. It took us nearly a decade to get there but we’re extremely excited to announce that we’ve officially made it to 300 episodes on the We Like Movies Podcast feed! In honor of the occasion we’ve invited back the ten beautiful individuals who have guested on the podcast over the years to share their thoughts on ...…
 
20 years ago this month, director Michael Mann released his sixth theatrical feature to widespread critical acclaim in spite of the film’s relative inability to find an audience. Mann received his first (and thus far, only) best director Oscar nomination for the The Insider and despite the fact that the film rarely gets mentioned with the same ...…
 
As Steve and Janet fly off into the sunset for two weeks on Maui, we have a special treat for you. This week's "Descent" is from the first Steve and Garry HI broadcast on WLSFM95, on Monday March 3rd, 1983. As you probably know, this was the 1st of many. Harken back to a time of yesteryear, when radio was cool, and new and innovative things. Di ...…
 
We’re a couple weeks past the official 20th anniversary of David Fincher’s seminal masterwork about displaced and misplaced Gen X machismo. But it’s only given us that much more time to further reflect on a film that has aged in wild, troubling, and unexpected ways that we could not have predicted back in October of 1999. Join us as we revisit ...…
 
We keep our recent streak of passionate but level-headed disagreement rolling with a spirited discussion about Todd Phillips’s JOKER- a film that is either a dangerous and controversial call to violent action or merely a dark and disposable comic book novelty. Or maybe it’s both. Or maybe it’s neither! Give it some thought, give us a listen, an ...…
 
Steve and Garry used to be tight with Jay Leno back in the day. He would play Zanies on Wells Street. He would sometimes bring in Fireplace Inn ribs, and just generally made everybody laugh. Then he got the Tonight Show, and there was some distance. Sad... Steve has always suspected it's because he and Garry did that week of late night on CBS. ...…
 
20 years ago this week, 2 of the Sundance Film Festival’s favorite sons both leveled-up with their respective genre exercises and experienced creative breakthroughs. Yet, for some reason, Steven Soderbergh’s melancholy daylight noir, The Limey and David O. Russell’s Heller-esque military satire, Three Kings rarely get mentioned in the same brea ...…
 
———Editor’s Note: Apologies for the tardiness of this episode. It was supposed to be out earlier this week but technical issues led to the late posting. But it sounds great now and we’re really proud of the conversation. Thanks for listening!——— We’re talkin’ Ad Astra, we’re talkin’ box office, we’re talkin’ festival reactions, and we’re talkin ...…
 
It’s a complicated movie with a complicated legacy. These are complicated times. So it’s going to take a complex conversation to properly excavate the Best Picture winner from 1999 on the week of its 20th anniversary. Join us as we celebrate and ruminate [on] American Beauty, a film that–for better or for worse–defined the end of a decade and a ...…

A new Oeuvre journey begins this week as we inaugurate our excavation into the career of one, John McTiernan. His incredible run from 1986 to 1990 represents a singular rise from relative obscurity to industry relevance, prominence, and pertinence. Join us as we set the table for his unique career path, attempt to divine meaning from his bizarr ...…
 
If you’ve ever considered joining Mindhead, were always intrigued by the premise of “Chubby Rain,” or get nervous when someone asks you if you’re willing to cut your hair, then you’re probably going to get a lot out of this week’s episode. We’re revisiting the forgotten comedic gem Bowfinger, a film that got lost in the late summer of 1999 amid ...…
 
In the tenth installment in our ongoing series about 1999 we revisit M. Night Shyamalan’s zeitgeist-rattling supernatural thriller The Sixth Sense; a film we had previously covered in our AFI Top 100 series and had been disproportionately hard on. This time around we look at the film with fresh eyes, examine its relationship to the horror movie ...…
 
“The continent of Europe is so wide, mein herr. Not only up and down, but side to side, mein herr. I couldn't ever cross it if I tried, mein herr. But I do… What I can… Inch by inch… Step by step… Mile by mile… Man-by-man.” Email: wlmpodcast@gmail.com Donate: Thanks! Subscribe: Apple Podcasts / Stitcher / Overcast / RSS…
 
Roughly three or four times a decade we declare a national cinematic holiday in honor of the man who’s been reinventing the rules of mainstream cinema for the last quarter century. Regardless of how you feel about Once Upon a Time … in Hollywood, it’s hard to argue with the fact that Quentin Tarantino’s “9th” (mmm, “10th”?) feature film as writ ...…
 
We’re a week late for our 20th anniversary celebration of Stanley Kubrick’s provocative final masterpiece, Eyes Wide Shut. But the added buffer gave us more time to stew and reflect upon the truly bizarre cultural real estate that the film occupies in the the filmmaker’s career, in Cruise and Kidman’s respective filmographies, and within the we ...…
 
It took practically the entire decade but teenagers of the nineties were finally gifted with their own defining sex comedy at the halfway point of the last year of it. July 9th, 1999 saw the release (snicker) of the Weitz Brothers’ gross, sweet, schmaltzy, and sporadically hilarious love letter to Losin’ It, The Last American Virgin, and, of co ...…
 
On June 30th, 1999, Trey Park and Matt Stone’s HARD-R animated musical South Park: Bigger, Longer & Uncut first hit theaters. Released less than two years after the premiere of the Comedy Central series’ pilot episode, South Park’s move to the big screen was only a modest financial success. But it proved to be a legitimate creative breakthrough ...…
 
In honor of the 30th anniversary of Spike Lee’s seminal masterwork—in which race-relations and temperatures rise to a breaking point on a summer day in Brooklyn—we’re re-releasing our corresponding AFI Top 100 podcast episode. The film ranks [criminally low at] 96th on the 2007 version of AFI’s list and we recorded our conversation about it jus ...…
 
On our triumphant return to the present tense we sound off about the wild, weird, and existentially-conflicted fourth installment in one of the most beloved and critically acclaimed film franchises of all time. We then turn our attention to another subject that weighs heavily on our minds and is also experiencing a bit of an existential crisis ...…
 
On this week’s edition of our ongoing series “Retrospectating 1999” we revisit the forgotten German crime caper Run Lola Run. Now, this film is technically attributed to 1998, which is when it premiered in Germany, Venice, and Toronto. But it first screened in the U.S. during the Sundance and Seattle Film Festivals (where it racked up multiple ...…

It’s been a long time since we’ve dipped our cinematically-inclined toes into the television pool. But what better reason to do so than the conclusion of the most cinematic show ever to grace the small screen? Join us for a break-down, wrap-up, and maybe even a defense of the wildly divisive final season of HBO’s beloved and reviled 73 episode ...…
 
On the third Wednesday of May in the year 1999, an unprecedented cinematic event took place in movie theaters around the world. Twenty years later, we’re still trying to answer two questions about the most anticipated / most disappointing film of the 20th Century: “What the hell happened?” and “What does it all mean?” Join us for another editio ...…
 
Marvel superfans and friends of the podcast, Anders Dahl and Ryan Julio join us this week as we lightning-round the 21 previous installments in the MCU’s Infinity Saga before digging deep into the franchise’s victory lap- the three hour emotional rollercoaster known as AVENGERS: ENGAME. A lot of personal growth, unexpected revelations, and soul ...…
 
What a long, strange trip it’s been. We began our journey through Steven Spielberg’s 32-film oeuvre in August of 2017. 20 months later we’ve finally arrived at our 8th and final podcast in the series- a thorough and passionate reflection and ranking episode. Join us as we curate our personal hierarchies of the man’s filmography, break down his ...…

Twenty years ago today a film was released that caught director Doug Liman, writer John August, and a cast of hot young upstarts at a moment of perfect aesthetic and artistic unanimity. Go wasn’t a big hit at the time and was even dismissed by Leonard Maltin as a “junior Pulp Fiction.” But the film has aged in a lot of fascinating ways over the ...…
 
We’re catching it up and breaking it down this week with a veritable smorgasbord of scintillating topics: -Celebrating the beginning of the season with our favorite baseball movies (00:03:00) -A SPOILER HEAVY litigation of the various interpretations of Jordan Peele’s US (00:14:20) -A preemptive defense of Harmony Korine’s latest ode to hedonis ...…
 
Twenty years ago this week a film came along that not only changed the way that we looked at science fiction, visual effects, and Keanu Reeve’s capacity for star power. It also legitimatized the fetishization of mirrored sunglasses, duster jackets, and leather pants. So pop your red pill, crank up the Rammstein, and dog-ear your copy of “Simula ...…
 
Here at We Like Movies we’ve been extremely vocal about our love for filmmaker J.C. Chandor and have always self-identified as loud and proud “Chandorks.” But our dedication to the man’s body of work experienced some strain this past week on the occasion of his newest film premiering on Netflix. Let’s just say that we have complicated feelings ...…

The Oscars came out of the gates with a bang and ended with a whimper. The night’s big winner was vexing but there were some legitimate highlights that we’ll likely be talking about for years to come. Oscars. We watched ‘em. We’re talkin’ about ‘em. So there.

20 years ago today, a 10 million dollar workplace comedy directed by the 37 year old creator of Beavis and Butthead was released by a major Hollywood studio and audiences ignored it EN MASSE. Today it occupies rarefied air as one of the most beloved cult texts of the 1990s. On the occasion of Office Space‘s 20th anniversary we travel back to 19 ...…
 
In honor of the 20th anniversary of one of the all time great movie years, we’re debuting a new feature in which we deep-dive into the most important films of the last year of the 20th century: “Retrospectating 1999!” Join us for our inaugural episode in which we excavate the “year of the teenager” phenomenon when films like Varsity Blues and S ...…

On a rare episode in which we actually recorded under the same roof (on the same microphone, no less!), we get down to business with Academy Awards talk. We pontificate and prognosticate as we reveal our individual predictions in all of the “major” categories and take the time to curate our “fantasy” scenarios of who we’d personally love to see ...…

Dearest WLM family, it’s time for our favorite podcast of the year and, at the risk of being self-congratulatory, we think it’s one of our best episodes ever! It’s epic without being long-winded. There’s list overlap without complete crossover. There’s disagreement without dissent. There’s even a brief detour into our own personal lists of 2018 ...…
 
This is a partial show from ‘83. Steve has a run in with a neighbor about their dog. Can you see 400 miles? A wacky DJ story. There’s a headphone thief at the station! Steve was on the Bob Braun show in 1979. Was the ghost of Marcus Palmer in Times Square?
 
“Oh bliss! Bliss and heaven! Oh, it was gorgeousness and gorgeousity made flesh. It was like a bird of rarest-spun heaven metal or like silvery wine flowing in a spaceship, gravity all nonsense now. As I slooshied, I knew such lovely pictures!”By Oscar Dahl & Matt Knudsen

“I find I'm so excited, I can barely sit still or hold a thought in my head. I think it's the excitement only a free man can feel, a free man at the start of a long journey whose conclusion is uncertain. I hope I can make it across the border. I hope to see my friend and shake his hand. I hope the Pacific is as blue as it has been in my dreams. ...…
