Zak tackles The Sting. We're faced with a bunch of white olds this week, so naturally we ended up with a crime thriller and a tale of socioeconomic struggle -- tune in to find out which is which!
Lee tackles Five Easy Pieces. It's been a long time but true to form, chief enemy of the show, Jack Nicholson, comes kicking around, being a shitbird again. There's a movie full of music, and one full of dancing, and two in which ol' Jacky boy sucks. Tune in this week for some hatred.
Seth tackles Awakenings. We've got a pretty legendary cast this week as Seth regales us with his homespun tales of whimsy. Tune in to see which movie comes out on top.
Cam tackles Vampire's Kiss. We teased it last week, but man alive, this movie is really something. Nonetheless, Cam comes into a loaded situation and charms us with an evocative tale of classic vampire whimsy. Tune in this week to see who comes out on top!
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.
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!
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!
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.
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.
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.
