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.

Faking Movies – Ep 89. Vampire’s Kiss

Cam tackles Vampire's Kiss.  We teased it last week, but man alive, this movie is really something.  Nonetheless, Cam comes into a loaded situation and charms us with an evocative tale of classic vampire whimsy.  Tune in this week to see who comes out on top!

Faking Movies – Ep 88. In the Mouth of Madness

Zak tackles In the Mouth of Madness.  Come down this rabbit hole of insanity with us this week -- both movies are a swift departure from reality, perhaps some more so than others.

Faking Movies – Ep 87. A Guide to Recognizing Your Saints

Lee tackles A Guide to Recognizing Your Saints.  We're left in a sort of confusing haze this week -- on one hand we have a slice-of-life "coming of age" tale and on the other a feel-good sports movie.  We THINK we know who won this week, but there's lots of mixed emotions about the original -- tune in to see who eeks out the W!

Faking Movies – Ep 86. Whiplash

Seth tackles Whiplash.  Do you prefer deep-seated emotional abuse or actual whip-work?  Or, perhaps you prefer roller derby... we've got at least two out of those three this week, so tune in!
