Faking Movies – Ep 97. Paint Your Wagon

Marielle tackles Paint Your Wagon.  This week our runtime and blood alcohol level sadly matches the original movie quite well.  On one hand we have a confusingly progressive musical and on the other a precursor to a beloved American classic.

Faking Movies – Ep 96. Postcards from the Edge

Zak tackles Postcards from the Edge.  We had a vacation-induced break from recording, but are back with the usual antics.  This week, we've got a heavy dose of scientific idiocy and the real tale of a beloved national treasure... not all version are well-received.  Tune in to find out which is which!

Sometimes friends are super cool and make their other friends homemade mole sauce.  Sometimes those other friends are really hungover and forget their lovely presents. In this brief mini-ep we explore remote mole transportation methods.

Faking Movies – Ep 95. Zero Effect (Theorem?)

Lee tackles some movie with Zero in the title.  Both movies this week are fairly blatant ripoffs of established tropes, but both are also surprisingly effective.  Tune in this week to hear the ramblings of idiots figuring out that all fiction is recycled.

Faking Movies – Ep 94. Cabin Boy

Seth tackles Cabin Boy.  In this, the second ep of a double-record (buckle-up, fam) we get two tales of the high seas, but with MARKEDLY different outcomes. Jump aboard as we explore this legendary (notorious?) movie this week.  Also, this is a landmark movie for us -- find out why at the end.

Faking Movies – Ep 93. (FIXED) 3000 Miles to Graceland

Will tackles 3000 Miles to Graceland (3KMTG).  What a pair of movies this week, both have heists and only one of them makes ample use of Ice-T, which might be a bit of a giveaway as to who wins.  Stay tuned for that and a whole bunch of BeastWars chat (not kidding) this week!

Faking Movies – Ep 92. The Sting

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!

Faking Movies – Ep 91. Five Easy Pieces

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.

Faking Movies – Ep 90. Awakenings

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.
