Freeing you from the tyranny of movie plots

Faking Movies – Ep 147. The Barber of Siberia

Lee tackles The Barber of Siberia.  Oh heavens, what a journey this turned out to be.  The movies share stylistic elements (to Seth's great delight), but follow surprisingly different paths, ultimately.  Tune in for some good fun this week, comrade.

Faking Movies – Ep 146. Something Wild

Seth tackles Something Wild.  On one hand we've got a long-shot culinary adventure, on the other a sort of kidnapping-gone-right tale.  Tune in for some "recorded before the world caught fire" optimism, in this dark times.

Faking Movies – Ep 145. Brigadoon

Nicolas tackles Brigadoon.  We have two sort of out-of-time stories this week, both QUITE whimsical. Lots of real fanciful insanity this week -- tune in to see who takes it!  Sorry for the delay on RSS issues -- we're working through them!

Faking Movies – Ep 144. Midnight Run

Zak tackles Midnight Run.  This week we've got dueling dark-jogs -- one involving chasing fugitives cross country and one involving nightly vigilante justice! Hope nobody hates horrendous Scottish accents, because you ain't gonna love this one, if so.

Faking Movies – Ep 143. The Hunter

Lee tackles The Hunter.  We've got a wayward scam on one side and... I don't know... a hunt... on the other?  Tune in to hear about this weirdly under-the-radar movie!

Faking Movies – Ep 142. In Time

Seth tackles In Time.  Two movies about time, sadly, zero additional non-Timberlake N*Sync members in either.  One follows the exploits of a pop star and the other, a movie so obsessed with time but it sure takes forever to go anywhere.  Heavy on the Mario Goofs and some discussion of the Teen Choice Awards.

Faking Movies – Ep 141. Flash Gordon

Katelyn tackles Flash (aaaaah aaaaaaaaaaaaaah) Gordon.  Two massive contenders face off this week -- one is a genre-subverting psychological super hero mystery and the other is... well... genuinely indescribable.  Tune in to see how it all shakes out!

Faking Movies – Ep 140. Butter

Zak tackles Butter.  Two extremely niche movies... both very butter-centric, both slice-of-life.  Chris Guest directed either none of, or both of these movies... you'll have to decide for yourself.

Faking Movies – Ep 139. Family Business

Lee tackles Family Business.  We've got a hell of a cast on this one -- one version is a quirky family romp and the other is a botched heist.  Also, I think we owe James Blunt royalties.

Faking Movies – Ep 138. Career Opportunities

Seth tackles Career Opportunities.  The two movies this week share a genre, and honestly not much else.  They both have plenty of goofs, and some dubious star power.  Tune in to see who wins!
