Night of the Living Dead (1968)
When man has fully turned his back on the beloved friend of humanity, and hope is vanquished by the night's long onslaught of demonic terrors, then we can fully realize that our twisted fate is wrought by our own misguided hubris. That means there's zombies, y'all! Tune in for Night Of The Living Dead, a spectacle that put George A. Romero on the map and us on the fence as to whether or not this movie is actually good. You'll hear groans, moans, and cries of terror, and they're definitely not coming from the zombies. You catchin' my drift here? We didn't care for this movie, so tune in and find out why! SPECIAL WARNING: Kindle and I decided that this episode could not be delivered without fully opening up, so there WILL BE PROFANITY (Watch yo profamity). If strong language bothers you, this may not be your undead cup of tea. Hey! Follow us on Twitter (@silverstreampod)! Check out our Tumblr (thesilverstream.tumblr.com) Find Kindle (@kindlerouse) and Spargo (@spargowrites) on Twitter! Stay Silver, baby. Next Time: Stagecoach on Hulu

A Trip To The Moon (1902)
Great Scott! It's the adventure of a life time! Join us for our look at A Trip To The Moon from 1902, a film that paved the way for the very nature of cinema as we know it! It's filled with action, suspense, danger, romance.... I mean, it's filled with that stuff in a very general, vague sense. Look, the movie is 16 minutes long at most. What exactly are you looking for here? This one is sure to be a blast. We chose to critique this famous work as three different versions: the original without audio dialogue, the dubbed version, and the rerelease with music by Air. There's something for everyone here! Unless, of course, you're a lobster-handed moon creature. Then, honestly, this one's gonna touch some hard emotional areas for you. Stay silver, baby. Next Week: 1968's Night Of The Living Dead on Netflix

White Zombie (1932)
Well, this is quite a sight to behold! This installment comes to us from 1932, and it's a wild, undead ride. I mean, they're undead, right? That's... that's never actually made clear. Join us as we discuss this odd little piece of early horror cinema. We'll be talking cultural significance, the rules and ideas behind zombies, and Bela Lagosi's many different accents in his attempt to pick a favorite. We promise that this one will keep you comfortably in the middle of your chair. No edge of the seat action here, folks. Next Week: 1902's A Trip To The Moon on Netflix

Join us for our first silent film! Which then turned into our most musical episode yet. Seriously. There is so much singing in this episode. Oh, and robo-voices. Lots of that. We viewed a pillar of cinema history with 1927's Metropolis - a film about a dystopian future and the robot that could prevent its salvation. And a mediator between the heart and the hand, apparently? And sacrifices to ancient metallic gods of South America? And a lot of water.... We try to make sense of it. Next Time: White Zombie on HuluPlus

The Fuzzy Pink Nightgown (1957)
We aren't sure why there was such an emphasis on "pink" in a black & white movie... We aren't sure about much with this movie. Well... except that a majority of the lines seemed to be building up to a fantastically cheesy porno. Join us as we discuss the trials of being a famous dame in a bygone era! Next Week: White Zombie (1932) on Hulu Plus.

The Lady Vanishes (1938)
We have two words for you... Threatening. Erection. Care to know what we are talking about? Then give us a listen as we discuss Alfred Hitchcock's 1938 Not-So-Classic movie, The Lady Vanishes. Kindle and Spargo have a lot of fun discussing this, and you can let us know what YOU thought on Twitter - @silverstreampod is our handle! Next Week: 1957's The Fuzzy Pink Nightgown

Plan 9 From Outer Space
We've made it ten episodes!! Go us! To celebrate, and also to punish you for having the poor decision-making skills that led you to watching this movie, we are providing you with a commentary track for 1959's Plan 9 From Outer Space. This tarnished gem was provided to us by a Lugosi-obessed director, Ed Wood. It's not a good movie, but we have it on good authority that watching it with our commentary makes this movie bearable! If this is something you'd like us to do more of, let us know by tweeting us @silverstreampod or sending us an email at email@example.com! So strap on your bad movie seatbelt and get ready for one heck of a ride! Next Week: 1938's The Lady Vanishes P.S. - For those who care, since this is a live commentary, Kindle and Spargo decided to keep it as real as it gets, so there will be some slight language in this episode. You have been warned!

It has action! It has mystery! It has romance! Just... the action is more like suspense; the mystery is more like 2 + 2 = ?; and the romance is more like the "Do you like me? Check yes or no," note you once got from Smelly Tommy two desks down... Listen in to see what we mean as we discuss Rudolph Mate's 1950 film, D.O.A. This is the most unedited episode Kindle and Spargo have produced yet! Let us know if you like this style better. Just contact us through email (firstname.lastname@example.org) or on twitter (@silverstreampod). Join us next week for our commentary track on Plan 9 From Outer Space!

The Dalton Girls
You can tell by this image alone that this movie is not going to be an accurate portrayal of rebel women in the west... Oh lord... Prepare for a comedic hour where a good portion of it is spent detaling the plot, point by point, to illustrate just how wrong this film got it. Hit us up on twitter (@silverstreampod) if you want to join the conversation or email us with any suggestions for future films! Next Week: D.O.A.

This week we are going back to the wild, wild west! Wait... uh... Scratch that. Director Akira Kurosawa certainly inspired a lot of Hollywood's western genre, this film in particular, but this film is very Japanese. Kindle and Spargo seriously tried to keep this episode to an hour's length, but that proved to be impossible. Please join them in the discussion (@silverstreampod or email@example.com) and listen to their comedic review of 1954's Seven Samurai. Up Next: 1957's The Dalton Girls

And Then There Were None
The 1940s and Agatha Christie, both, gave the world much to ponder. However, 1945's "And Then There Were None" disappoints but gives Kindle and Spargo much to mock and commiserate over. Join us next week as we watch Seven Samurai!

The Great Dictator
In 1940 (or was it 1941, Hulu...?), Charlie Chaplin released a timely film about World War II. And it was a comedy. Kindle and Spargo discuss the interesting man that was Chaplin and his interesting choices as director. It's riveting. Join us next time, as we discuss 1945's adaptation of Agatha Christie's novel, "And Then There Were None."

The Tale of Zatoichi
Spargo and Kindle go into this movie blind (tee-hee! [you'll get it later...]) and have a gay 'ole time (tee-hee! [seriously, watch and then listen...]). We're not sure what to say beyond that. Samurai, massages, gangs, oh my!

The Three Faces of Eve
In 1957, there came a film that shocked the nation, about a woman with multiple personalities. In 2015, there came a podcast that discussed that film, with many technical difficulties.

The River (1951)
Kindle and Spargo take an unexpected detour from their black-and-white theme and end up in colonial India, where teenage hormones drive the plot. Join the conversation by tweeting @silverstreampod or emailing firstname.lastname@example.org!

The Silver Stream - 01 - 12 Angry Men
Happy 2015! What better way is there to start off a new year than by delving into the past? Join Kindle and Spargo as they discuss the ups and downs about 1957's "12 Angry Men." PS - Forgive Kindle's spotty audio.. Her mic is in transit somewhere over the Pacific, and she apparently has no clue where the laptop's mic is located.
