Episode 36: Who Wants to Live Forever?
Continuing despite the onslaught of technical difficulties... The boys are back with the Freddy Mercury/Queen biopic "Bohemian Rhapsody." From Zoroastrian maxims to hush-hush gay sex in truck stops to recording studio drama and finally the smash Live Aid performance, the movie was a treat for fans even if the critics were polarized and some facts didn't add up. Note this does not mean we endorse Bryan Singer. Plus: Scenes that should have been in the movie, Lucy Boynton looking like a mf snacc, Rami Malek as the Next Big Thing, Mike Myers, and more!

Episode 35: Speed Bumps, Mr. Bond?
Continuing our series on James Bond. We talk about the longest Bond film yet and Bond going to the Orient! Thunderball is probably best remembered for being super long and having underwater fight scenes, but it's not bad (in fact one of us likes it a whole lot.) You Only Live Twice however...has a good song and was written by Roald Dahl. And sorry for the audio quality, Apple sucks diiiiiiiiiiick Also: Japanese Bond, wrestlers in the franchise, four production units, honorary Sicilians, and more!

Episode 34: Where Did It All Began, Mr. Bond?
Welcome back to our series on the Bond franchise. We talked about the first three movies in the franchise that kick-started a global phenomenon. Dr. No may be a little rough around the edges but From Russia with Love and Goldfinger are still all-time classics. Plus: Billy Joel lyrics, Turkish Oil Wrestling, John Oates's Private Eyes, Choosing Oddjob is cheating, A Dog Named N-Word, and many more!

Episode 33: What's Next Mr. Bond?
Strap yourselves in, we're talking Bond! The boys talk about the long-lasting spy franchise James Bond. Particularly, the drama surrounding Bond 25, due out next year (perhaps.)

Plus: Villains, Shir Shean, how franchises survive, and many more!

Episode 32: Who's the Most Bruce Lee Looking Guy in Hong Kong Now?
Going back to Hong Kong baybee! One final episode to close off World Cup fever, the boys look at the surprise Stephen Chow smash: Shaolin Soccer. Visually intense, it was rough to talk about the movie while trying to do the action justice. Along the way we manage to question the casting direction (in a good way.) Also this episode is (mostly) unedited because it was short enough already.

Episode 31: Why is Pele Trinidadian?
World Cup fever still not subsiding? The boys got you covered with a Stallone deep cut: Escape to Victory! This 1981 film unites Sly, Michael Caine, Max von Sydow, Pele, and host of other soccer greats in a movie very loosely based on a true story. A POW team plays a German team in a propaganda football match at the height of WWII. Featuring all the classic WWII movie tropes of: the Nazi with an eyepatch, French Resistance woman, prison escapes, and British officers playing cards. Plus: Other odd pairings, My Cocaine as Ebenezer Scrooge, West Ham United, Supreme Court Justice Clarence Clemmons, and more!

Episode 30: Where Can I Get a Sandwich Round Here?
The boys talk about the first ever Rambo movie and the most surprising: First Blood. Unlike the sequels, First Blood is more of a drama about a Vietnam Vet with PTSD being treated like ass by small-town cops. A movie way ahead of its time and sadly not as fondly remembered as its sequels. Also: Bollywood Rambo, Hard-R movies turned into Children's Cartoons, RIP Anthony Bourdain, Kojima, and Asian Expendables!

Episode 29: What Happens at Cannes?
The boys are back with a look at the Cannes Film Festival: the snootiest, high-falutinest film festival there is. We take a look at the history of the event, notable movies that have won, 2018's entries for the Palme d'Or, and of course the controversies! Plus: The meaning of the French tricolors, racism, Steve Harvey, and Solo!

QUESTIONS LIKE THIS EPISODE XXVIII THE BOYS tackle STAR WARS. A franchise in existence for over FORTY years, they try to pinpoint exactly when did it start to SUCK. From the most recent SEQUEL TRILOGY to the ORIGINAL TRILOGY and every EXPANDED UNIVERSE release in between, it turns out there is a lot of suck in the CANON. Tackling REYLO, resurrected actors, PREQUELS, and of course the STEREOTYPES that George loves so much, you're in for an ACTION-PACKED episode of the pod.

Avengers Disassemble! After ten years of movies, the Marvel Cinematic Universe comes to a head with Infinity War. Thanos finally gets off his ass and forces Cap, Doc Strange, Groot, and Spoder Man to work together. Does it live up to the hype? Actually yeah, it's good folks, leaving the boys to wonder who will actually watch the Ant-Man 2 movie after this one.

Episode 26: Whose Nostalgia Is It Anyway?
This is it, the absolute nadir of Spielberg: Ready Player One. From the incredibly generic, fresh off the assembly line shit story, to the insufferable "I recognize that!" cinematography, we gut this Reddit wet-dream and leave nothing unexamined. Fulfilling a prophecy from a previous episode, one of the boys walked out of this movie! Plus: Borrowed nostalgia, Nickelodeon woes, easter eggs, Jean Baudrillard, and more!

Episode 25: Why is Netflix Full of Sh*t?
I guess this can officially be the start of season 2 of the show. The boys try to find out why exactly is Netflix producing and releasing so many high-profile shitty movies and cancelling 15 series at once despite being the most ubiquitous streaming service on Earth (and Elon Musk's secret Martian colony.) Also: Suncoast Videos, Governator, Aziz I'm Sorry, Jared Leto's mystifying continued existence, and no more closing songs :(

Episode 24: Why Do Bad Movies Happen To Good Actresses?
We're not really good at this weekly thing are we? Anyway, two movies with good leads (Alicia Vikander and Jennifer Lawrence) that have a whole mess of issues that add up to two mostly nothing movies, including a historic first for one of us! Also, this will probably be the last one with outro music, I don't want to deal with anymore disputes. Eat my ass in hell, overly litigious copyright holders. Plus: Joel Edgerton, upcoming hot messes, Assassin's Creed, directors who are coasting, The New (Old) Cold War, and lots more!

Lively up de sound system masta selectah and pass de chalice roun' On this *timely* episode of Questions Like This, the boys round up the best movies about the Winter Olympics and conclude that Cool Runnings is the best underdog movie of all. We also talk about I, Tonya and a couple of others, but we mostly talked about how the Winter Olympics suck and their sports are dumb.

Episode 21: Black Superhero Movies?
Black History Month! The boys are getting ready for an episode on Black Panther, but before that we take a look at some of the previous black superhero movies that came out throughout the years. From successes like Blade to absolute dogshit like Catwoman, black superheroes have had a rocky path to celluloid. Plus: Shaq, Esperanto, Underworld, shitty music from the 90s, we want a John Stewart Green Lantern movie, and more!

Episode 20: So Tell Me Do You Wanna Go?
And we're back! After a short hiatus - including the Philadelphia Eagles creaming the Patriots - the boys return with their hottest takes on "The Greatest Showman." We are applying a Debordian/Zizekian analysis of spectacle and ideology on the hit musical, with an emphasis on the music and the juxtaposition of history and entertainment. Just kidding, I just wanted to write all that so my Master's degree doesn't go to waste! Plus: George Washington's Mammy, The Real Life Scrooge McDuck, possible films about Edison, and more!

Episode 19: What's The Craziest Thing DDL Has Done for A Role?
Everyone's a little bit method these days, but we ask what's the craziest damn thing Daniel Day-Lewis has done for role? DDL (the cool way to refer to him) is one of the greatest working actors and certainly the one people think of when we say "method actor." From staying in a wheelchair the whole production time to building a log cabin and of course apprenticing as a butcher, DDL has done it all to embody his characters. Sadly he retired after last year's "Phantom Thread" to pursue his dream of being a real-life dressmaker. Plus: What is Method Acting?, the dark side of My Left Foot, Camilla Belle, and DDL's got some pipes on him!

From Oklahoma to The Sound of Music, the dynamic duo of stage and screen wrote some of the best loved musicals and tunes in the Great American Songbook and are responsible for keeping drama/theater class alive! We also discuss some of their relatively lesser known output (at least today, back in the day they were smash successes. Go ask your grandma.) Plus: Man Heaven, What is A Governess?, The Gazebo from Sound of Music, Huge Jackedman singing Show Tunes, and more!

Episode 17: How Do You Solve A Problem Like Whitewashing?
New Year, same old pod. Given recent controversies over whitewashing and diversity in film, the boys (one Asian, one Jewish) dive into the history of whitewashing and racism in film. From Al Jolson in burnt cork, to Mr Yunioshi, and of course the hullabaloo over Ghost in the Shell, we try to suss out the roots and notable instances throughout the years. It's not just a black and white issue folks! Plus: Antoine Griezmann in full blackbody, Assassin's Creed and the inconsistent accents, White Euros playing Arabs, Fu Manchu/Charlie Chan dichotomy, evolution of South Asian stereotypes, and ambiguously ethnic actors.
