Faking Movies – Ep 88. In the Mouth of Madness

Zak tackles In the Mouth of Madness.  Come down this rabbit hole of insanity with us this week -- both movies are a swift departure from reality, perhaps some more so than others.

Faking Movies – Ep 87. A Guide to Recognizing Your Saints

Lee tackles A Guide to Recognizing Your Saints.  We're left in a sort of confusing haze this week -- on one hand we have a slice-of-life "coming of age" tale and on the other a feel-good sports movie.  We THINK we know who won this week, but there's lots of mixed emotions about the original -- tune in to see who eeks out the W!

Faking Movies – Ep 86. Whiplash

Seth tackles Whiplash.  Do you prefer deep-seated emotional abuse or actual whip-work?  Or, perhaps you prefer roller derby... we've got at least two out of those three this week, so tune in!

Faking Movies – Ep 85. Airheads

Jer tackles Airheads.  Through another heavy fog of disappointing, fully-preventable audio issues, we persevere into a fully new era of Faking Movies this week.  Jer blows the whole thing wide open with a revolutionary new format, while we reminisce on the real movie: a nineties... classic? abundance? mere presence? Unclear.

Faking Movies – Ep 84. Streets of Fire

Zak tackles Streets of Fire.  One movie is rock and roll fable, stuck in no point in history.  The other is an origin story retelling of tragic historic events.  We take a ride on the story horse (for better or worse) this week, and try not to get bucked off again.

Faking Movies – Ep 83. Tin Men

Lee tackles Tin Men.  Old-timey professions and rampant misogyny are up against a juke-box epic this week.  Help us take down the proletariat as a side-plot and tune in next week for then-unknown guest, Jeremy with a 90's metal movie that you most certainly have seen on Comedy Central as a youth.

Faking Movies – Ep 82. Better Off Dead

Seth tackles Better Off Dead.  What happens when you try to be everything at the same time? Both the real movie and Seth went about this same quest, but in different ways this week.  Tune in to see who is victorious.

Faking Movies – Ep 81. High Spirits

Jess tackles High Spirits.  We've got the Juice, the Orenthal herself, back in podland this week for this..."movie"?  None of us had seen this film before this week, and boy, there were some surprises.  Tune in this week to see if Jess maintains her perfect record.

Faking Movies – Ep 80. You’ve Got Mail

Zak tackles You've Got Mail.  In this very special sadly-fully-denominational Christmas episode, we work out both traditional and electronic-based mail plots that go in very different directions.  Also, stay tuned afterwards for some great goofs that weren't quite long enough for a mini-ep, but that we didn't want to only see the cutting room floor.

Faking Movies – Ep 79. Meatballs

Lee tackles Meatballs.  Neither of these movies had much to do with the title this week, but one was WAY better than the other.  Listen to Zak slur his words a bunch and grab a prize from Seth's trunk of mysteries, but not Lee's Balls(TM) beverage!
