Faking Movies – Ep 117. Something’s Gotta Give

Kevin tackles Something's Gotta Give.  Some call him evil, some claim he's the Devil incarnate; some say he's got no reflection in mirrors, he steals children in the night and was Ebola patient-zero.  That's right, ladies and gentlemen -- Jack Nicholson is back!  On one hand we've got a rather high-stakes competition... on the other, I don't know, some bullshit we've already forgotten.  Tune in to see which is which, but you probably already figured it out by now.

Faking Movies – Ep 116. A Philadelphia Story

Zak tackles A Philadelphia Story.  We've got yet another "2nd of two recordings" booze-soaked adventure for ya this week! On one hand we have a literal story about all things Philadelphia and on the other something that seemingly could have happened literally anywhere.  Tune in this week for some romance and history.

Faking Movies – Ep 115. End of Watch

Lee tackles End of Watch.  This week we really get into the hard issues of modern times, and then theres the usual farts and dick jokes.  Half Night Court, half cop drama... there's something for everybo... well, no, that's a pretty narrow market, actually.  Nonetheless, tune in to see who comes out on top.

Faking Movies – Ep 114. Go

Seth tackles Go.  In a time honored tradition, we delve back into the movies of our formative years... and Korn, the pinnacle of music in our formative years.   We've got drugs, space, the human condition, and Miatas.  Tune in to figure out which goes with which... and if we dunk on Avatar (of course we do).

Faking Movies – Ep 113. Lawrence of Arabia

Jana(Pants) tackles Lawrence of Arabia.  We had long joked about doing this movie, because it is among the longest to have ever existed -- this week, we took the plunge.  We put a historical retelling up against a tale of mystery and perhaps supernatural.  It's a genuinely close race, tune in to see who wins!

Faking Movies – Ep 112. Darkman

Zak tackles Darkman.  One of today's movies is about the human condition while the other is about "wet mummies", apparently.  Tune in this week to see which comes out on top and, hey, if you know Brenden Fraser, tell him how much we want him to come on the podcast.

Faking Movies – Ep 111. Rumble Fish

Lee tackles Rumble Fish.  We take two deep-dives this week into two cultural hallmark, slice-of-life niches that couldn't possibly be more different.  Tune in to see who makes the best of this heavy-hitting cast.

Faking Movies – Ep 110. Falling Down

Seth tackles Falling Down.  Some movies get way undersold and then surprise you at the end.  Some other movies start with what seems like a good premise, but fail to really pan out in a non-horrific way.  We've got a mix of both this week, so tune in to figure out which directions they go.

Faking Movies – Ep 109. Silver Linings Playbook

Jeremy tackles Silver Linings Playbook.  In perhaps one of our most contentious episodes yet, pretty much everyone goes toe-to-toe on one thing or another as we duke it out over the two movies this week.  Romance, deities, Philadelphia sports teams -- we've got it all.

Faking Movies – Ep 108. The In Laws

Zak tackles The In Laws.  This week we've got a crazy hijinx goof-em-ups where not everything is what it seems and a sorta dark, brooding drama where everything is certainly not what it seems.  Lock down that transient anus and tune in to see who prevails.
