Faking Movies – Ep 127. Pelican Brief

Lee tackles Pelican Brief.  There's birds, there's Cynthia Nixon being a hippie, there's birds, there's... yeah, no that's pretty much it.  Massive cast this week, tune in to see how Lee and a wildly famous author handle it. It's a doozy.

Faking Movies – Ep 126. Renaissance Man

Seth tackles Renaissance Man.  On one side we have a period piece, on the other a modern day fish-out-of-water; megalomania features prominently in both stories.  There are a lot of characters in these movies, tune in this week to soak up all these good hijinx.

Faking Movies – Ep 125. Phantom of the Paradise

Marielle tackles Phantom of the Paradise.  We've got another two plots that are technically pretty close this week.  The differences should become clear quickly, as one sounds like "an actual movie" and the other is "completely insane nonsense".  We got this spooky-tober one out a SMIDGE late, but we hope you enjoy it anyway.

Faking Movies – Ep 124. True Stories

Zak tackles True Stories.  This week both movies have a bit of a meandering feel to them, but with varying amounts of "ridiculous vanity project.  The votes are VERY split, as well, so tune into see who goes home the winner, and who is very sad that one of their friends likes bad movies.

Faking Movies – Ep 122. The Electric Horseman

Seth tackles The Electric Horseman.  This week we complete the off-cycle release schedule and have two REAL doozies for plots.  On one side we've got a man/horse love story and on the other, an old testament tale for the ages.  It's all over the place, good luck.

Faking Movies – Ep 123. Welcome to the Dollhouse

Lee tackles Welcome to the Dollhouse.  Due to some unforeseen circumstances, we're running episodes 122 and 123 out of order these next two weeks -- but rest assured, they're both coming.  In this episode, we've got an action-packed mystery thriller and a tragic coming-of-age tale, both with a heavy dose of nobody-famous.

Faking Movies – Ep 121. Stranger Than Fiction

Duc tackles Stranger than Fiction.  This is one of those "perfect storm" episodes where the movies are both great and weirdly similar -- Duc gets confusingly close, despite our blatant attempts to sabotage.  We get REAL deep into the doxxing ourselves as well, so anybody who listens and doesn't already know us (literally no one), I guess... don't murder us?

Faking Movies – Ep 120. American Graffiti

Zak tackles American Graffiti.  From the loins of George Lucas was this episode birthed -- both coming-of-age tales, one sorta political and existential... the other... I guess just sorta "teens".  Tune in to see whether George or Zak start their writing/directorial careers off on the winning foot this week.

Faking Movies – Ep 119. Three Days of the Condor

Lee tackles Three Days of the Condor.  This is one of those weeks where we've got some wildly different plots going on.  There's some spies, there's some BMX, there's some murders... so, you know, something for everybody.  Tune into see how Lee stacks up!

Faking Movies – Ep 118. Get Shawty

Seth tackles Get Shorty.  What a week -- there's at least 3, maybe 4 movies this go-round.  Shorty, get down, good lord, baby got 'em up open all over town... we cover the gamut of Italian and Hollywood and Spacetime possibilities this week -- tune in to see what any of that means and, of course, who wins.
