Freeing you from the tyranny of movie plots

Faking Movies – Ep 136. Blow Dry

Zak tackles Blow Dry.  We harken back, this week, to a better time, a simpler time... an early 2000's time.  The movies are honestly fairly similar this week, if for no other reason, than the fact that this title lends itself to zero creativity whatsoever.

Faking Movies – Ep 135. The Long Kiss Goodnight

Lee tackles The Long Kiss Goodnight.  This week we're split between a bizarrely paced action movie (we think?) and an out-of-time multi-thread fantasy tale.

Faking Movies – Ep 134. The Chill Factor (MkII)

Seth tackles The Chill Factor.  Wait, did we do this one already?? Kinda, yes.  This week we goofed on Seth and gave him The Chill Factor, a little known early movie by the same title as the only-slightly-better-known later movie we covered in episode 130.  Tune in this week for the mulligan!

Faking Movies – Ep 133. The Princess Bride

Curt tackles The Princess Bride.  We honestly have two fairly comparable movies this week.  We spend a lot of time discussing the downsides of nostalgia and some time covering Highlander, unfortunately.  Except for Lee... he can't get enough of Highlander.

Faking Movies - Ep. 132. The Phantom

Zak tackles The Phantom.  Turns out Zak DID kinda know this movie, because Lee and Seth talk about it constantly, but here we are anyway.  One is a full-goof comic book remake, and one's a social and political commentary-laden hero's journey.  Clearly we really planned ahead for this holiday episode.

Faking Movies - Ep. 131. King of California

Lee tackles King of California.  This week is chock full of fun, with a lunacy-treasure-hunt on one side and a political thriller on the other.  Tune in to see how ends up on top for this weirdly new yet largely unknown movie.

Faking Movies - Ep. 130. Chill Factor

Seth tackles Chill Factor.  On the one hand we've got a very cool psychological thriller and on the other hand, shit... I dunno, I think we already forgot.  This week we discuss what even constitutes "entertainment" and then Seth does some cool shit to redeem us, thank god.  Tune in to experience Hollywood's existential crisis and also a pretty cool on-the-spot plot.

Faking Movies – Ep 129. Rushmore

Jess tackles Rushmore.  She done it again folks... she done broke the format, and for the best.  Tune in this week as Jess takes a cool meta gaslighting approach to describing her movie to us, and then also we talk a bunch about Rushmore, of course.

Faking Movies – Ep 128. The Man Who Fell To Earth

Zak tackles The Man Who Fell to Earth.  Perhaps unexpectedly, we're focusing on space this week -- the two plots disagree on one point: how many hot-sex-aliens is the right amount?  Tune in this week to find out what these plots hold and hit us up on twitter with who you think the sexiest alien is.

Faking Movies – Ep 127. Pelican Brief

Lee tackles Pelican Brief.  There's birds, there's Cynthia Nixon being a hippie, there's birds, there's... yeah, no that's pretty much it.  Massive cast this week, tune in to see how Lee and a wildly famous author handle it. It's a doozy.
