Faking Movies – Ep 154. Dr. Strangelove

Faking Movies – Ep 153. Eyes of Laura Mars

Zak tackles Eyes of Laura Mars.  Given the specificity of this title, these movies share a BIT of a theme, but go in fairly different directions.  Tune in for some real out-there nonsense this week.

Faking Movies – Ep 152. Siberia

Lee tackles Siberia.  We've got a crime thriller and a wanderlust travel tale this week, in the second of the Russian Extravaganza.  You're spared a trilogy because we literally could not find the final film -- congrats.  Tune in to see which chilly, high-latitude movie wins this week!

Faking Movies – Ep 151. That Thing You Do

Seth tackles That Thing You Do.  What a gift this movie was.  We've got a crazy villain training movie, and also, the Beatles, but American.  It's all goofs... the world is ending... tune in... you've literally got nothing else to do.

Faking Movies – Ep 150. The Matrix Trilogy: Advanced Linear Algebra

Everyone tackles the Matrices.  Boy, we've really outdone ourselves this time.  We watched all three Matrix movies and discuss various bits of trivia, general themes, and most importantly: what we think they're actually all about.  Tune in for this emotional rollercoaster of an anniversary episode!

Marielle tackles Pennies from Heaven.  The hardest working woman in podcasting is BACK BAYBEE!  We have two fanciful meandering tales this week, and plenty of insanity.  Tune in to see which wins!

Faking Movies – Ep 148. Midnight Cowboy

Zak tackles Midnight Cowboy.  Well, this week we've got a fun romp, and maybe the least fun romp of all time.  Not so much a romp as a genuine emotional crisis, by the sound of it.  Two very highly rated movies however -- tune in for the barn burner this week!

Faking Movies – Ep 147. The Barber of Siberia

Lee tackles The Barber of Siberia.  Oh heavens, what a journey this turned out to be.  The movies share stylistic elements (to Seth's great delight), but follow surprisingly different paths, ultimately.  Tune in for some good fun this week, comrade.

Faking Movies – Ep 146. Something Wild

Seth tackles Something Wild.  On one hand we've got a long-shot culinary adventure, on the other a sort of kidnapping-gone-right tale.  Tune in for some "recorded before the world caught fire" optimism, in this dark times.
