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.

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.
