Faking Movies – Ep 102. Burke and Hare

Seth tackles Burke and Hare.  This week we have a tale of adventure and whimsy up against a tale of... adventure and whimsy?  This fairly recent, but under-the-radar movie allows for some solid exploration this week.  Oh, and potential for Endgame spoilers, but just barely... it's mostly about pooping.

Faking Movies – Ep 101. Prince of Darkness

Zak tackles Prince of Darkness.  You would think he'd learn, but he won't.  On one side we have an action/sci-fi thing, and on the other hand we have an action/sci-fi thing by our most favorited and always-a-surprise director.  Tune in for lots of surprises and some out-of-contexst PSA's this week.

Faking Movies – Ep 99. Private Resort

Lee tackles Private Resort.  Because this title is kinda boring and on-the-nose, both movies end up being somewhat similar this week, following the express initial purpose of the podcast that we've now completely abandoned.  Huh.  As such, it's a pretty fair fight this week -- tune in to find out who wins!

Faking Movies – Ep 98. Little Loopers

Seth tackles Little Loopers.  You're probably wondering "what the hell is Lil' Loopers, I've never even heard of that?"  Well, you're not alone.   Following in the footsteps of wildly popular true crime podcasts, this week Seth promised us something like Serial.  Little did we know, he was meant cereal.  Stay tuned for a TRULY remarkable treat at the end, inspired by Seth's movie... oh, and also there's some stuff about golf at some point.

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!
