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!

Faking Movies – Ep 46. Holes

Lee tackles Holes.  I think the one thing our country can agree on in these polarizing times is that Shia LaBeouf is the greatest actor of our time and a true American hero.  We celebrate him, in two surprisingly different ways this week.  Oh, and we all like Star Wars... of that, we are certain.

Faking Movies – Ep 45. Bull Durham

Seth tackles Bull Durham.  Baseball, it's America's pastime.  Bül... it's... probably no one's pastime... but it sounds GREAT.  Romantic subplots, some tedious, are through-lines in both movies today, and we discuss the merits of sports movies through the ages.

Faking Movies – Ep 44. Dirty Dancing

Tom tackles Dirty Dancing.  It's a battle for the ages this week; Tom goes up against perhaps one of the most beloved and famous movies we've done thus far and really brings his A-game.  In this impossibly long-winded episode we had the time of our, we've never felt like this before. Yes we swear, it's the truth, and we owe it all to yoooooooooou-ou.

Faking Movies – Ep 43. MonkeyBone

Zak tackles MonkeyBone.  In the conclusion to our animal trilogy, we explore both treasure hunting and cartoonist nightmare fugue states.  Brenden Fraser is an absolute angel, but man, the rest of this movie is a disaster.  Practical effects abound, and we grapple with tedious terminal diseases.  It's a real rollercoaster this week, folks.

Faking Movies – Ep 42.5. Tater Salad meets unnamed University

Seth's a friendly guy, I think we all know that -- but, sometimes (a lot of times?) he befriends celebrities.  In this mini-sode, Seth meets blue collar hero Ron White.

Faking Movies – Ep 42. They Shoot Horses, Don’t They

Lee tackles They Shoot Horses, Don't They.  This week we introduce the Sadness-Meter™, but then we done broke it immediately because this movie went off the CHARTS for sads.  Lee writes for one our favorite directors; we both walk and talk, and then we do some dancing... but the sadness is insurmountable.  Tune in for the second installment of our animal trilogy and, of course, some sadness.
