Faking Movies – Ep 109. Silver Linings Playbook

Jeremy tackles Silver Linings Playbook.  In perhaps one of our most contentious episodes yet, pretty much everyone goes toe-to-toe on one thing or another as we duke it out over the two movies this week.  Romance, deities, Philadelphia sports teams -- we've got it all.

Faking Movies – Ep 108. The In Laws

Zak tackles The In Laws.  This week we've got a crazy hijinx goof-em-ups where not everything is what it seems and a sorta dark, brooding drama where everything is certainly not what it seems.  Lock down that transient anus and tune in to see who prevails.

Faking Movies – Ep 107. All the Pretty Horses

Lee tackles All the Pretty Horses.  We explore WILDLY different themes this week, to varying degrees of success.  One's an old west romp while the other is a... ya know, I'm not sure we even worked out what the other one was about.

Faking Movies – Ep 106. All of Me

Seth tackles All of Me.  Puns are a thing... they exist in the world.  We expect them from our beautiful boy.  He never disappoints.  There's like an obvious movie and a much less obvious movie this week, I think you can figure out which is which.

Faking Movies – Ep 105. Mama Mia

Zak tackles Mama Mia.  We have a special return guest on to talk about this admittedly famous movie.  We mix a crime mystery with a who's your daddy mess-around this week and man, there's just TONS of ABBA chat.

Faking Movies – Ep 104. Two Year Anniversary Spectacular

The Boys tackle the entire Fast and Furious franchise.  Some people think the Fast and Furious movies are the pinnacle of modern cinema and some other people...have the wrong opinion.  We three run the gamut in this regard and this week we get INTO it -- power rankings of all movies, discuss the characters, the plots, the themes, all of it.  It's a long one, but we assure you, it's gonna change your life.

Faking Movies – Ep 103. The Last Days of Disco

Lee tackles The Last Days of Disco.  It's the first ep of a two-fer recording session, so you KNOW next week is gonna be a nightmare.  This cast is SO good and the movies are surprisingly diverse.  We're going back to our roots this week with two markedly different plots and scores... tune in to see who wins.

Faking Movies – Ep 100. The Rock

Will tackles The Rock.  Despite our inability to count, episode 100 has arrived and BOY is it a doozy.  For this special milestone episode we're doing one of Zak's favorite movies and having Will, a favorite past guest, back on.  On one hand we have a horror suspense thriller, on the other a military action thriller; both have a chance at being the best movie of all time, but how in the name of Zeus' butthole will we get out of our cells?

Faking Movies – Ep 102. Burke and Hare

Seth tackles Burke and Hare.  This week we have a tale of adventure and whimsy up against a tale of... adventure and whimsy?  This fairly recent, but under-the-radar movie allows for some solid exploration this week.  Oh, and potential for Endgame spoilers, but just barely... it's mostly about pooping.
