The Silver Linings Playlist

Not every movie wraps up with a neat little bow on the end. Some leave you asking "what the f@#$?!" We're here to find the silver lining in the latter. Join Dustin, Mallie, and Nathan every Monday as we try to find the light at the end of the tunnel for some of cinema's bleakest endings.

After a much needed break, we're rejuvenated, refreshed, and ready to kick off Season 7. And what better movie to be energized to discuss than one where the protagonist sits on a couch the whole time? In keeping with tradition, we're discussing yet another Aronofsky movie for our season premiere, and this time it's 2022's The Whale. A powerful yet divisive film from Aronofsky, so there's certainly a lot to ...

It's the dog days of summer, and while there's still a little bit of a wait before Season 7 kicks off, we're bringing you something very, very special as a bonus to hold you over. It's a special episode on one of Dustin's favorite movies of all time: 1994's Speed! Even by 2023's standards, it's fair to say this film is what Mallie routinely refers to as a "white knuckle thrill ride"...

While we're gearing up for Season 7, Dustin and Nathan pop in for a mini Silver Linings Special to give a sneak peak of their band The Fever // The Rage's upcoming debut album "NeverEnding". Hear them discuss the formation of the band, the wild alternate band names they almost settled on, and what's in store on their first record. Plus, they'll debut two original songs from the album.

We're closing up shop for the season, but not before talking about one of our favorite movies from the last few years. It's the "sometimes maligned, sometimes adored" Malignant from James Wan. A very divisive film that some audiences either didn't get, didn't have the time for, or simply didn't approve, but for those who embraced it, they found an absolute gem. And we've got an episode so goo...

In our penultimate episode of the season, we're pulling up a chair to the table as we devour 2022’s The Menu. This sleek, stylish, and sophisticated tale of the elites getting what's coming to them has a rich layer of humor and terror that's worthy of your attention. So tuck that napkin into your shirt and grab your utensils as we crack open this great movie to talk about it all, as well as the magic of eating fast f...

Somehow Paranormal Activity 2 was a huge success (at least in terms of box office revenue) despite being a dreadfully boring movie. That being said, this may be one of the funniest movies of 2010 - unintentionally, of course. We welcome returning guest Ashley McGlothren as we crack open this film to discuss it all: which fast food chain has the worst french fries, creepy kids toys, swingers with pineapples, and of course: the Cheez...

This week on the program, grab your Dou Dou and pour yourself a martini cause we're once again saddling up next to Daniel Craig in his Aston Martin DB5 as we discuss James Bond's ultimate swan song with 2021's No Time to Die. With a troubled production and constant delays, this one has no right to be as good as it is. And while we acknowledge that sometimes things don't necessarily work, the film still manages t...

With the Academy Awards less than a month away, we're taking a look at one of the most interesting feckin' films of last year that has a lot to say about grief, friendship, and legacy; it's The Banshees of Inisherin from director Martin McDonagh. While we haven't discussed one of his movies since all the way back in Season 1 with In Bruges, we're back in familiar territory, and McDonagh has only gotten bett...

We're finally diving into the insane world of Paul Verhoeven with a steamy erotic thriller from the '90s. Of course we're talking about none other than 1992's Basic Instinct! A greasy Michael Douglas tripping over himself to try and bed a young Sharon Stone; what's not to love? Well, a lot, actually. So uncross your legs and get comfortable cause we're spreading this one open to talk about it all, incl...

We told you we'd be back, and we weren't lying. That's right; this week we're revisiting the one that started it all: 1984's The Terminator from director James Cameron. If you can even believe it, before he committed himself to the Pandorian dirt, Cameron was a pioneer of auteurism with his incredible ability to make a dollar out of pennies. Does this one stand the test of time? We'll find out. So get ...

You deserve nice things, and if you're a fan of our show, you've got cosmopolitan taste. This week, we're keeping the 2022 A24 horror train rolling along as we jump back to the '70s with a discussion on Ti West's X. Porn, Fleetwood Mac, old people, murder; this one's got it all! So pour yourself a glass of lemonade and slip into bed with as we talk all things X, including how to properly pronounce the ...

Alex Garland is known for very cerebral, thought-provoking screenplays, and while 2022's Men are both of those things, the film (frustratingly) doesn't seem to commit to anything in particular. That being said, this one has a lot to offer; beautifully haunting atmosphere, a powerhouse performance from Jessie Buckley, and a score that's out of this world. We'll discuss all of that and more, including wine moms dr...

January 16, 2023 75 mins wanna see Paul Rudd's pubes? Well, you've come to the right podcast! That's right, this week we're taking things back to 2003 with the abhorrent The Shape of Things from director Neil LaBute. Never heard of this one and want to watch it? Good luck; the movie has been lost to time, it seems. But don't worry, dear listener; we're here to tell you all about it, and this is one you probably don&a...

This week on the program, we're granting the wishes for those of you who want more schlocky horror movies covered on the show. This time it's none other than 1997's Wishmaster. Candyman, Jason, and Freddy all starring in the same flick? Well...sort of. Tune in as Dustin and Nathan choose their words carefully while they discuss the movie, plus the worst name to yell when you're panicking, what defines a "wi...

If we say we have a great episode for you to kick off your 2023 with, you will agree. While you're out there working on your New Year's resolutions, we'll be in the derricks discussing 2007's There Will Be Blood. It's still (unsurprisingly) one of the greatest films of all time and deserves a rewatch. So lace up your old boots and grab your milkshakes cause we've got a lot to discuss, including the inh...

Even though we're officially beyond Christmas, you've still got one last present to open from your friends at The Silver Linings Playlist. What better time than now to discuss the "forbidden" Batman movie? That's right, we're diving into 1992's Batman Returns from Tim Burton. This one's got it all: sleazy Danny DeVito, sexual Michelle Pfeiffer, and a sulking Michael Keaton. What's not to...

We've covered some bad movies on this show during our 6-year run, but nothing has even come close to this. For the first time ever, we are asking - nay, imploring - you all not to watch this movie before hearing our episode (or even afterwards.) 365 Days is pure, unadulterated garbage, and not just in its poor direction and performances; it sets a dangerous precedent. With all that being said, we do our best to bring you the s...

If you can believe it, this week marks the 20th anniversary of the release of one of the greatest films of all time. We're of course talking about The Lord of the Rings: The Two Towers from the great Peter Jackson. What more can be said about this movie that hasn't been said a thousand times over already? Well, apparently, we've got 2 hours’ worth of things to say. So grab your pipe-weed, mount your warg, and ride ou...

The violence continues in our episode this week, but in a much less glorified way. That's right, we're back in Cronenberg Town as we crack open 2005's A History of Violence. While there's much less body horror to be found in this one as opposed to David Cronenberg's other works, there's still a ton of gruesome acts of...well, violence.

How do you make over $140 million at the box office with only $7 million in your budget? You cast Elisabeth Moss against...well, nobody, and you put Leigh Whannell simultaneously in the writer & director's chairs and watch the magic happen - or not happen. This week on the show we're taking a look (or at least trying to) at the 2020 masterpiece that is The Invisible Man. This is the quintessential example for remaking...
