So far Chad I'm really enjoying this show. I listened to the first one that downloaded to my phone and you weren't on it. So I went BACK to ep 1 and am starting from there. You should drink more.
Exceeeelllllent. Yeah, the drinking has subsided, sadly. BUT IT SHALL CONTINUE! Just not in this episode.
"The In-Laws" (1979)
With Chad absent AGAIN, last week's guest - Steve Phelan - makes a fill-in look natural. This time Steve picks the movie: the original "The In-Laws" from 1979, starring the great Peter Falk and Alan Arkin in a film directed by Arthur Hiller. Mark's never seen the movie (neither has Chad, for that matter, not that he's here today (but he IS writing this, strangely, in the 3rd person)). "The In-Laws" (1979) can currently be found in the Criterion Collection.

"Better Luck Tomorrow" (2002)
Hey everybody, Chad's back! Chad's back!
...and so is Steve Phelan, returning for his third consecutive podcast with the fellas. Today they attempt to tackle one of Chad's suggested films - the Justin Lin helmed "Better Luck Tomorrow", from 2002. This film reeks of late-90's style, and is FULL of nostalgia because of it. Not many films captured this particular era as well as this - and absolutely none of those films did it with an entirely Asian-American cast. This movie shines, and we hope it'll shine for you, too.

Performers of note: Parry Shen, Jason Tobin, Karin Anna Cheung, Sung Kang, John Cho, and Jerry "The Beave" Mathers

Oh hello, everyone. Chad here. This week's podcast features people not including myself - I know, I know - but the show must go on (including next week, which I'm also absent for). All this aside, co-host Mark brings us two things this week: "Back To School", the 1986 Rodney Dangerfield classic; and a guest appearance by fellow podcaster & writer, Josh Trotter.
“Back To School" (1986)
Performers of note: Rodney Dangerfield, Sally Kellerman, Robert Downey Jr., Paxton Whitehead, Terry Farrell, M. Emmet Walsh, William Zabka, Ned Beatty, Robert Picardo, Adrienne Barbeau and a wonderful cameo by Kurt Vonnegut.

Hey, guess what! Chad's missing in action for the second week straight, replaced this time by animation director extraordinaire, Ashley Long (also known to be dating Mark Alan Heiliger, co-host of this very podcast)! Mark and Ashley take on the absolutely fucking wacky "Earth Girls Are Easy" from 1988, starring Genna Davis, Jeff Goldblum, Jim Carrey, Damon Wayans, Michael McKean, and Julie Brown.

"The Notorious Bettie Page" (2005)
Well, it finally happened. Chad finally returned to the podcast, after missing 4 of the last 5 episode tapings. The original duo, Mark and Chad, are back together at last, this time to bring you a movie of Chad's request: a charming "The Notorious Bettie Page" from 2005. This little film came and went, primarily on HBO as it was produced (or at least bought) by HBO. Starring Gretchen Mol in probably her best-ever performance, "The Notorious Bettie Page" is a film directed by Mary Harron ("American Psycho").

Oh hell yeah. I remember that shit.
“Sex, Lies and Videotape" (1989)
The era of "films for adults" is dead. Ain't it? We live in an age where films similar to "Sex, Lies and Videotape" seem to be hitting Netflix on a daily basis. Why not? Small casts, sexy, low budget, "smart" conversations on film between some intellectuals (or nonsensicals) and you've got yourself a film in the same wheelhouse. This is a movie that hit Hollywood harder than it appeared at the time, because it really opened up the door to a whole new generation of filmmakers, from Steven Soderberg himself, across the indie darling spectrum all the way to Kevin Smith.
