Friends and Neighbors, we return this week to the land of magic and mayhem, the land of large creatures and even larger victories, we return one final time into the mind of the great, the inescapable, the indefatigable Steven Spielberg! 

This is the moment you've been waiting for, the pinnacle, the finale, the whole purpose of this series - are JAWS, JURASSIC PARK, and THE BFG fit to enter the halls of the DAD CANON? The answer...

Friends and Neighbors, what's better than a whole new approach and a whole new series? NO IDEA when the episodes are going to drop! That's right, this was definitely on purpose. No it wasn't, we're busy/lazy people and today is the earliest we were able to publish. Sorry.

THIS WEEK, we bring you back to the land of MOVIE MAGIC, the land that was discovered, built, and perfected by the one, the only - Steven Spielber...

Friends and Neighbors, we come to you bearing glad tidings of great change. Small change. Well, some sort of change. With this next series, we're trying something ENTIRELY DIFFERENT with the formatting - instead of breaking up the episodes by movie, we're breaking them up by conversation. 

Here, for our inaugural series of the new NYFM format, we have: STEVEN SPIELBERG CREATURE FEATURES! The films we are talking about here ...

It is Dan's First Birthday Episode!

In case you thought Dan was a normal, chill dude, be ready for some surprises in this episode. He chose to discuss two very strange, existentialist movies. The 2009 film by Jaco Van Dormael, Mr. Nobody and the 2013 film by Denis Villeneuve, Enemy. These are wild, intense, very adult, and our conversations are just as wild, intense, and somewhat adult.

We dive into what the heck existentialist...

Here is Vito's Second Annual Birthday Episode!

 

Last year, Vito wanted to cover choreography, both with musicals and fight choreography. And to cover that, Vito picked The Raid, The Raid: Berendal, and All That Jazz.

 

This year is totally different.

 

The discussion this year is computer generated images versus practical effects. Basically, we are using The Thing (1982) and The Thing (2011) to compare and contrast the two dif...

NSFW: Crude jokes and language (except one of Mike's F-bombs are bleeped out for some reason. Why? Because I am mediocre.)

This episode is so chrome. Its so shiny.

Actually, it ain't shiny at all. Vito is under the weather, Jesse is sick as well, Dan's library ran out of wifi, and Mike read the word "Imperator" wrong. Its a strange episode and I love it. We have an amazing discussion about this insane action mov...

The third and perhaps most surprising installment in our CARS series (as in movies WITH cars, not the Cars movies) is Speed Racer!

If you have seen this movie then you will understand when we warn you this episode is fast, exciting, and a little all over the place. We grapple with our opinions - is this art for art's sake? Who was the intended audience for this movie? Was there an intended audience for this movie? And that is j...

Next up for our CAR MOVIES that absolute unequivocal category of dad movies we have the carsiest one of them all, CARS!

If you've seen this movie, you know what it's about. If you haven't (weird) I'll give you three guesses. 

Jesse and Mike were BOTH out this week as they apparently don't have what it takes but fortunately  we are rejoined this week by our very own Mr. Speed himself: Sirr! from Sirr's Furnit...

Is there anything more "dad" than a car? Or a bus? Or Freeways?

No there is not. 

We are tackling some of our favorite tire-squealin' movies. The rubber really meets the asphalt in this series! (heh)

 

Today we are talkin' Speed! The Keanu Reeves classic of not trying to hit everything on the road. We get into some arguments in this one. Namely about freeways. (seriously though, how does NO-ONE know that the freeway...

The final episode of our Chronological Crowe series has finally arrived! It has been travelling all the way from the far side of the world, survived many naval battles, and maybe even had brain surgery.

We discuss many topics regarding leadership, pride, choosing the lesser of two weevils - we get deep!

We can't believe how amazingly this movie has withstood the test of time.

And finally, a thank you to Russell Crowe for taking...

Continuing on our journey through time, history, grit, grime, and glory - we have our next incarnation of our Gruff Australian hero... ROBIN HOOD.

 

Has this movie stood the test of time?

 

Let's be honest, I think most of us forgot about it until now. BUT NOT DAN! 

 

Also as we've spoken about in the past our podcast has some trouble with our sense of the space-time continuum and so the future series mentioned at the end o...

Surprise episode everybody!

 

In honor of us launching our new Patreon, and in honor of our highest tier member Sirr, we decided to do a watch-along of MORBIUS, the newest Sony entry into the kinda-Spiderman-kinda-not universe! A movie well loved by Sirr that Mike and Vito had not seen, they decided to record a live, synced-up watch-along of the movie. This is an episode best played while you are also watching the movie to hear the...

"Are you not entertained?!?"

Russell Crowe is back for what is his most acclaimed movie, Gladiator! Not only critically acclaimed, this movie also has some deep roots in our hosts' nostalgia. We talk about our experiences as teenagers watching this movie for the first time as well as other 'swords and sandals' type movies.

Are we supposed to be entertained by the heads rolling on the screen? Does this make us ju...

Hey listeners! We've got the beginning of a new series and the first Darren Aronofsky movie we have ever covered. This week is all about beginnings...it's Noah!

If you are in the mood for some talk about animals, arks, and rock monsters then have we got an episode for you. This film runs deep in our group nostalgia - heck, this film might have saved the love of two star-crossed lovers. Between whom, you might ask? You just ...

Ladies and Gentlemen, are you ready for some high stakes gangsters? This is a big ol' epic mob movie about Casinos and we are here to talk about all of it! All 3 hours of it. But don't worry, we will condense it for you.

We compare this one a LOT to Goodfellas. Guest starring the hollywood legend himself, Joe gives us his personal feelings about this compared to Goodfellas. We also dig deep into Ace's character, the way...

Happy Mother's Day to all the mother's out there! As Dads, we appreciate you more than you know. Well, we have hopefully tried to show you exactly how much but you get the picture.

 

For this Mother's Day, in grand NYFM tradition, we are doing yet another James Cameron sequel centering on a strong female character called upon to mother in dire circumstances where the fate of all life rests squarely on her shoulders...
