Faking Movies – Ep 159. Gung Ho

Seth tackles Gung Ho.  We find ourselves in a unique position this week.  I'm not sure I can actually describe either of this weeks movies without giving too much away -- they're both simultaneously HUGE swings and also, kind of... successful? somehow?  Tune in for a double-dose of insanity this week and see which lunacy comes up out on top.

Faking Movies – Ep 158. Multiplicity

Will tackles Multiplicity.  This week we've got two thematically quite similar movies, and I think that's all we're gonna say about that.  One, however, is quite a bit better than the other -- play along to figure out which way we go! (it should be quite obvious...)

Faking Movies – Ep 157. Ghosts of Mars

Zak tackles Ghosts of Mars.  In the continued "sorry audience, we just wanna goof on each other, you don't matter" trend, we're back this week with a genuine nightmare.  By the way, sorry, again.  There's some mars, and there's some ghosts... obviously... you guessed that.  Tune in... we're deep in the pandemic and it's getting weird.  Someone might win, maybe... I don't even remember.  (None of this is true, it's a great ep... do actually tune in)

Faking Movies – Ep 156. Blue Steel

Lee tackles Blue Steel.  We've got tons of mystery this week... some involving some cool clandestine heist action and some with a real murderous psycho.  We're either on the edge of our seats or no one cares... it really goes several directions -- tune in to see how it all shakes out!!  Richard Jenkins: we'll expect the reputation glow-up check whenever you get around to it.

Faking Movies – Ep 155. Night Shift

Seth tackles Night Shift.  We've got some sex work, we've got some stolen cars, we've got a morgue, we've even maybe got a spiritual prequel!  Come on down to the Movie Plot Emporium for our pandemic sale this week -- WE'VE GOT ALL YOUR PLOT NEEDS.

Faking Movies – Ep 154. Dr. Strangelove

Erica tackles Dr. Strangelove.  We've get into a genuine classic this week -- we've got a deep-dive into the realities of nuclear war on one side, and a gripping thriller on the other.  Tune in this week to see who wins, it's a tight one!

Faking Movies – Ep 153. Eyes of Laura Mars

Zak tackles Eyes of Laura Mars.  Given the specificity of this title, these movies share a BIT of a theme, but go in fairly different directions.  Tune in for some real out-there nonsense this week.

Faking Movies – Ep 152. Siberia

Lee tackles Siberia.  We've got a crime thriller and a wanderlust travel tale this week, in the second of the Russian Extravaganza.  You're spared a trilogy because we literally could not find the final film -- congrats.  Tune in to see which chilly, high-latitude movie wins this week!

Faking Movies – Ep 151. That Thing You Do

Seth tackles That Thing You Do.  What a gift this movie was.  We've got a crazy villain training movie, and also, the Beatles, but American.  It's all goofs... the world is ending... tune in... you've literally got nothing else to do.

Faking Movies – Ep 150. The Matrix Trilogy: Advanced Linear Algebra

Everyone tackles the Matrices.  Boy, we've really outdone ourselves this time.  We watched all three Matrix movies and discuss various bits of trivia, general themes, and most importantly: what we think they're actually all about.  Tune in for this emotional rollercoaster of an anniversary episode!
