Ep. 89: 'Downsizing' & 'All the Money in the World'

Welcome folks! This is the Late Night Double Feature Picture Show that you have turned into tuned in to. It's our party, but it's cool that you're here.

What is life, folks? Living with death, or mumbly microphones? Helping humans, or acquiring wealth? Joining a Viking-Hippie Eden-cult, or resolving oil feuds on behalf of Getty Oil?

In other news, Joel's #1 tool has failed him.

Here's to you, you lawn people.

Ep. 88: 'Gremlins 2: The New Batch' & 'The Shape of Water'

Howdy folks!

According to one man (Joel, in the previous episode), for a proper metaphor to work, it has to work on both the literal and metaphorical interpretation. Perhaps the same can be said for film pairings, but this week's perfect couple have been chosen Jon, so good luck with that.

Get yer popcorn!

Ep. 87: 'Kubo and the Two Strings' & 'Star Wars: The Last Jedi'

Here we are folks! That's God damn right, this is the Late Night Double Feature Picture Show, where we're some gosh darn podcast professionals. Merry Bon Jour, and Male Commici Maka.

Who will win this week? Laika or Lucasfilm, shamisens or light swords, white-washings or low sci-fi. It's hard to say, without spoilers at least.

Get yer popcorn!

Ep. 86: 'The Room' & 'The Disaster Artist'

Come on. We had to do this.

Sometimes a truly great film comes along. A film that takes you by surprise, that shares a unique vision with you, that opens you to triumph and sorrow, the heights of Hollywood and the bitter grind that precedes it.

And when you watch it with friends, you feel true joy, reckless joy. You find a beauty that should not exist there, amid the soot of dreams long-dead.

And then you realize that film was based on 'The Room'.

Ep. 84: 'Justice League' & 'Coco'

Hello! And welcome folks! How are things in the universe outside Joel's recording studio/bedroom?

To be fair, this is the Late Night Double Feature Picture Show, and Happy Middle-of-December! Break out the sake!

But sandwiches and sound bars aside, you're in for a special week folks. Perfectly paired: Spandex tights and orange ethereal petals galore; dead gods and undead matriarchs; super-capes and Frozen shorts. You're welcome.

Get yer popcorn!

Ep. 83: 'The Killing of a Sacred Deer' & 'Murder on the Orient Express [2017]'

Welcome folks! It's episode 84 83 of LNDFPS! Me oh my, the turning of the decades, and the time frames. It's our favorite show, and we hope it's yours too.

It may be end of days for the J's, what with episode 100 naught four months out, but the boys have more important things to think about today. Like death. Science and witchcraft. Conscience and the unconscionable.  Yorgos Lanthimos, and Kenneth Branagh.

Surgeons never kill patients, and everyone is a suspect.

Will you be our coffee friend?

Ep. 82: 'Suburbicon' & 'Thor: Ragnorak'

Hello! Is it me you're looking for? It's the LNDFPS show. You know, where we do things like defining "nerdery".

We hope you partied hard this Thanksgiving. But Black Friday aside, this week is all-American fun. That is, the Coen Brothers and Taika Waititi. Are we a mirror of double-standards, black and white but never the two shall mix? Are we not a gaudy gladiator ring, run by a pleasure-seeking grandmaster and riddled with commercialized absurdities?

It's hard to choose sometimes. But that's the price of freedom. 90%-off-markdown, limitless freedom.

Getcha popcorn!

Ep. 81: AS SEEN ON TV! - Stranger Things Season Two

Welcome to the Late Night Double Feature Picture Show! Hope your Halloween was okely dokely.

'Little Shop' fan-boying aside, you're in for a treat folks. Prepare yourselves for a brief revisitation to your favorite nostalgia-verse... Hawkins, Indiana! All your old friends are here, playing their stupid video games and battling splindly smoke monsters. But will this hold up to your fond memories of season one? Are slimy trash-monsters safe pets? What are high school dances? Can Eleven be the Dark Phoenix of Netflix, out-handing the manifested fear and phobia of all those she cares for?

Or something like that. We don't deal in perfect metaphors here, folks.

Get yer custom sodas and wings! And sponsor us please.

Bring all your friends, it's time to go, to the Late Night Double Feature Picture Show! Thanks for listening; you're all heroes in our eyes.

And as a follow-up, this week Joel is totes over it. Easy comforts and hard love.

Three beverages, Joel. Count 'em.
