HAPPY BIRTHDAY MIKE!

And, as a surprise to everybody, Mike has chosen ZOMBIES as his birthday topic! Jesse had movies he remembers with his dad, Vito had the beauty of choreography, and Mike has chosen those brain eating beasts that defy logic but also get under our skin: the Undead!

 

We are principal...

Come join us this week for a very quiet podcast in which we whisper all our thoughts....

 

Kidding! We'd all totally be dead in the apocalypse. Just like Vito, who unfortunately was unable to join us for this episode. Way to go man. 

 

BUT, starting out our new HALLOWEEN-themed series we're talking about A Quiet Place, from 2018. Jim Halpert's - sorry, John Krazinski's - fir...

For our NEW RELEASE episode for the month of August, we are reviewing THE GREEN KNIGHT which came out in the last weekend of July!

 

Don't ask, we didn't pick the date it came out, we only knew we had to do it.

 

This episode is a first for us, as we all felt very strongly about how to read and interpret the events in this strange retelling of the classic Arthurian legend. We felt so strongly, we even end up shouting, p...

Our first episode in a new series about dudes racing horses. Surprisingly, it’s not a Seabiscuit series. We are here to talk about MODERN WESTERNS!

 

Shockingly, we argue about things in this one. Mostly about HOW bad people are in this movie. Some of us think some characters are bad and some of us think they are REALLY bad. We also talk a whole lot about subversivity, Clint Eastwood, Bobs, and so much more. Also, what does it me...

For our final episode in our DETECTIVE series, we are so excited to cover KNIVES OUT! It blew our socks off when we saw it in theaters, and now 2 years later, it still has the power to awe us.

 

We talk about what role luck plays in being a detective, what the inevitability of truth means. Who has the best look? Is Benoit Blanc a better detective than Sherlock Holmes? Is Rian Johnson one of the most t...

Is everyone ready for a nap? I know I am! What could possibly be more dad than a nap right? Well, here at NYFM we’ve got the biggest movie about naps: 1946’s The Big Sleep!

 

This third movie in our Detective Series brings us the gritty noir, the dark characters, the unexpected witty romance, wit, befuddlement, confusion, uncertainty, puzzlement, stupefaction, and heaps of perplexity. Who...

Here we are with a NEW RELEASE! We have finally decided to cover a Marvel movie! It is our first and we are very excited to talk about BLACK WIDOW. The MCU is difficult for all of us in terms of how much time and conversation we devote to it, but this is a worthy entry.

 

The fights are thrilling, the women are liberated, the cars blow up!

 

LET FREEDOM RING!

 

Kidding aside, we hope you enjoy this conversation! It was a blas...

Hello everyone and welcome to our new series: DETECTIVES! What is more "Dad" than movies about detectives: good guys tracking bad guys to bring them to justice?

Hey everybody, this week we have a special episode. Jesse is out sick, and Mike and Vito needed to come up with an episode to do together. So we decided to pull back the curtain on the New Release episodes, which will be happening every month on the last weekend. We unveil every New Release movie that we will be covering every month through the end of the year, just in case anybody wanted to keep up with us.

 

We start with a nic...

Okay, everybody, we are tackling Lin Manuel-Miranda's new movie, based on his old musical, IN THE HEIGHTS!

 

It's got our hopes and dreams and love and it's got Piragua, it's got the Nina-Benny-Usnavi-Vanessa everybody had been demanding since the musical swept the Tony's and since the movie has swept HBO Max and theaters.

 

It's hot outside and we are all wondering about ambition and destiny and whether...

SPECIAL GUESTS: LETTENEY and DAVID from Seriously Pointless Conversations about Culture

Matey's, did ya know that the Pirates of the Caribbean series has 5 movies in it? The last two, On Stranger Tides and Dead Men Tell No Tales, are roundly drubbed here.

Why two movies in one episode, ya might ask? Well, because these movies are terrible. So terrible, that we couldn't bear the thought of having to dedicate one whole epi...

On this third voyage, the pirates unite under the call of the Brethren Court to raise Jack, free Calypso, foil East India Trading Company, lick brains, marry Will and Elizabeth, and set sail again as the franchise starts anew.

 

At least, so was their plan.

 

Were they successful? Did they do all these chara...
