Faking Movies – Ep 65. Reality Bites

Lucas tackles Reality Bites.  Every generation needs its quintessential movie -- we get two examples of not-that-movie this week.  Nerds and Gen-X'ers tune in, you'll love this week's movies.

Faking Movies – Ep 64. Sky High

Zak tackles Sky High.  Coming off a weekend of sin, and leading into a weekend of academic acheivement.  One's a disney movie about coming out, sexually, one is a bummer until senior citizens redeem everything.  It's sure to be a doozy, as always.

Faking Movies – Ep 63. North by Northwest (NXNW)

Lee tackles North by Northwest.  It's old, it's long, it's wildly famous, it's... not too bad, honestly.  Lee goes WAY off the reservation, to great effect.  It was a late one and we got a little goofy on it... hope you all enjoy.

Faking Movies – Ep 62. Milk Money

Seth tackles Milk (Melk?) Money.  Lee and Zak watched this on a video-chat date, while Seth had to move and write a dissertation.  Lots of stuff going on -- are there any "good" pimps? What's the animal kingdom heirarchy when it comes to commercial production?  I'm not sure we answer any of these questions this week.

Faking Movies – Ep 61. Sixteen Candles

Austin tackles Sixteen Candles.  Man, this movie.  We trash this thing (except for #maybeDadsArentTheWorst?) up and down, but Austin really comes correct with a real fun romp.

Faking Movies – Ep 60. (The Adventures of) Buckaroo Banzai (Across the 8th Dimension)

Zak tackles Buckaroo Bonzai, or whatever this movie is called.  We go in wildly different directions this week, with a space rock star scientist who doesn't understand physical dimensions and a weird war romp... lord only knows what both Zak and the actual creators were thinking.

Faking Movies – Ep 59. The Pajama Game

Lee tackles The Pajama Game.  Very special ep this week -- twitter queen Marielle guest hosts while Lee fakes this week, because this is her FAVORITE movie.  Note, we find out it's definitely NOT everyone's favorite movie.  On the other side, Lee dips into his past plots for a "redemption" of sorts.

Faking Movies – Ep 58.5. The podcast that never was

Back, in the yonder times... there was rumblings of this new thing called podcasts.  Some of us made stupid youtube videos and man, they take FOREVER to finish.  So, we ended up on this... but not before some bad ideas.

Faking Movies – Ep 58. Big Night

Seth tackles Big Night.  A cast for the ages.  You just can do no wrong with this cast.  We do a cool game and a cool food romp.  Allison Janney gets due respect in only one of them, guess which.

Faking Movies – Ep 57. Back to the Future

Katelyn tackles Back to the Future.  In this truly momentous episode, we get into this true classic.  Our guest, Katelyn gets an impressive number of details correct, but it's a close heat at the end.  It's tough to even make thinly-veiled jokes about which plots are which, because you've surely seen this movie.  Saddle up for a great ride this week!
