Episode Info:

1999 was arguably the last big watershed movie year, one brimming with a crazy number of now-recognized classics that helped push cinema into the next millennium. That’s it, that’s our thesis. 1999 was crazy full of unique studio movies that would likely never see a green light in today’s franchise-driven climate: The Matrix; Office Space; Fight Club; Sixth Sense; American Pie; Being John Malkovich; Three Kings; Magnolia; Eyes Wide Shut; and more. The films are weird, personal, periodically profane, and often darkly funny. And their legacy remains. | 0:00 - Intros | 7:12 - Homecoming (Amazon) | 10:50 - The Decline and Fall of the Roman Empire (Gibbons) | 13:45 - Sports in the age of COVID-19 | 19:30 - Dave Made A Maze (2017) | 23:10 - Fast Five (2011) | 28:30 - Thank God It’s Friday (1978) | 35:46 - 1999: the year in movies | 52:11 - The Mummy (1999) | 58:25 - Fight Club (1999) SPOILERS | 1:09:10 - Office Space (1999) | Clips | Scratching The Itch - Sex Cult Girl | Prince and the Revolution - 1999 | Kool & the Gang - Fresh / clip from Bridesmaids / B-Side - Change the Beat | Clip from Homecoming s1e1: Mandatory | Battlebots Reboot Theme | Clip from Battlebots s3e1: It’s Robot Fighting Time! | Tandemoro - Pinball (from Dave Made A Maze) | Brain Tyler - Fast Five | Love & Kisses - Thank God It’s Friday | Mentos Jingle / Outkast - So Fresh and So Clean / Devo - Fresh | Spybreak! - Propellerheads | Jerry Goldsmith & Orchestra - The Mummy | The Dust Brothers - Homework | Lunachicks - Spoilt / Joss Stone - Spoiled / Monty Python - Spam | Perez Prado and His Orchestra - Mambo No. 8 | Trey Parker and Matt Stone - Uncle Fucker | Ricky Martin - Livin’ la Vida Loca
