Faking Movies – Ep 53. Ghost

Daniel tackles Ghost.  Oh, Ghost, we've hungered for your touch, such a long, lonely time.  On one side, we get a murder most foul and some nasty-arts-and-crafts.  On the other, a dramatic historical retelling and the now-famous donkey quarry mess-around.

Faking Movies – One Year Anniversary Retrospective

In disbelief that we made it a whole year, we decided to bore you further with a bit of a chat retrospective on the first 52 episodes.  We share our favorite eps, recap friends and enemies of the show, and provide rigorous statistical analysis of various scoring metrics.

Faking Movies – Ep 52. Starman

Zak tackles Starman.  There's no Bowie in thies episode, somehow.  One one hand, somebody gets kidnapped and there's some cool butts, on the other, a young adult spec script.  You'll probably figure out which is which pretty quick.

Faking Movies – Ep 51. Citizen Ruth

Lee tackles Citizen Ruth.  Coming off the hangover of episode 50, we figured we'd really just go for the most bummer movie we could find.  We knew this going in, and STILL did it.  Lee goes off-script and we, as a group, tackle social issues we have absolutely no business discussing.

Faking Movies – Ep 50. Roulette, the Culmination.

To celebrate our 50th anniversary, we dreamt up this wonderful roulette remix concept, and had friend of the show, Jeremy, back.  It's part magic and part nightmare.  Some movies are reduced to single words, and some go on for ages.  Come relive some great 90's movies and... well, good luck.

Faking Movies – Ep 49. Crash (not the racism one)

Seth tackles Crash (definitely not the racism one).  We take a look at the certainly-lesser-known and WAY crazier Crash this week -- exploring ornithology on one hand and freak-nasty perverts on the other.

Faking Movies – Ep 48.5. Male Strippers and Jewish Day Camps

We AGAIN had two diversions -- party planning and reminiscing as well as Marielle's first-hand take on the Dirty Dancing-style, North-East-centric, mostly-Jewish camp experience.

Faking Movies – Ep 48. Moonstruck

Marielle tackles Moonstruck.  The O.G. ML, twitter goddess herself, graces us with her masterpiece this week and it does NOT disappoint.  If you're into Italian culture, infidelity, and mystical creatures of the night, tune in this week!

Faking Movies – Ep 47.5. Russian Literary Corner (and death)

This week's ep graced us with not one, but TWO mini-sodes, both revolving around the peculiar deaths of Russian literary heroes.  The first one is rather historical, and the second one is a goof-em-up, so stick around for both.

Faking Movies – Ep 47. A Fish Called Wanda

Zak tackles A Fish Called Wanda.  We've got dinosaurs on the brain this week, but we are beholden to this wonderfully cast movie about god know's what.  Stay tuned for a literary and death-themed mini-sode later on this week!
