Freeing you from the tyranny of movie plots

Faking Movies – Ep 139. Family Business

Lee tackles Family Business.  We've got a hell of a cast on this one -- one version is a quirky family romp and the other is a botched heist.  Also, I think we owe James Blunt royalties.

Faking Movies – Ep 138. Career Opportunities

Seth tackles Career Opportunities.  The two movies this week share a genre, and honestly not much else.  They both have plenty of goofs, and some dubious star power.  Tune in to see who wins!

Faking Movies – Ep 137. Pulp Fiction

Tiff tackles Pulp Fiction.  This week we get all up in this classic... or IS it a classic?  One version has some crimes and the exact number of people in Pulp Fiction and the other is like less crime and WAY more people -- tune in to see what the correct number of people is for Pulp Fiction!

Faking Movies – Ep 136. Blow Dry

Zak tackles Blow Dry.  We harken back, this week, to a better time, a simpler time... an early 2000's time.  The movies are honestly fairly similar this week, if for no other reason, than the fact that this title lends itself to zero creativity whatsoever.

Faking Movies – Ep 135. The Long Kiss Goodnight

Lee tackles The Long Kiss Goodnight.  This week we're split between a bizarrely paced action movie (we think?) and an out-of-time multi-thread fantasy tale.

Faking Movies – Ep 134. The Chill Factor (MkII)

Seth tackles The Chill Factor.  Wait, did we do this one already?? Kinda, yes.  This week we goofed on Seth and gave him The Chill Factor, a little known early movie by the same title as the only-slightly-better-known later movie we covered in episode 130.  Tune in this week for the mulligan!

Faking Movies – Ep 133. The Princess Bride

Curt tackles The Princess Bride.  We honestly have two fairly comparable movies this week.  We spend a lot of time discussing the downsides of nostalgia and some time covering Highlander, unfortunately.  Except for Lee... he can't get enough of Highlander.

Faking Movies - Ep. 132. The Phantom

Zak tackles The Phantom.  Turns out Zak DID kinda know this movie, because Lee and Seth talk about it constantly, but here we are anyway.  One is a full-goof comic book remake, and one's a social and political commentary-laden hero's journey.  Clearly we really planned ahead for this holiday episode.

Faking Movies - Ep. 131. King of California

Lee tackles King of California.  This week is chock full of fun, with a lunacy-treasure-hunt on one side and a political thriller on the other.  Tune in to see how ends up on top for this weirdly new yet largely unknown movie.

Faking Movies - Ep. 130. Chill Factor

Seth tackles Chill Factor.  On the one hand we've got a very cool psychological thriller and on the other hand, shit... I dunno, I think we already forgot.  This week we discuss what even constitutes "entertainment" and then Seth does some cool shit to redeem us, thank god.  Tune in to experience Hollywood's existential crisis and also a pretty cool on-the-spot plot.
