SCORSESE’S GANGSTERS: Casino (1995)

Ladies and Gentlemen, are you ready for some high stakes gangsters? This is a big ol' epic mob movie about Casinos and we are here to talk about all of it! All 3 hours of it. But don't worry, we will condense it for you.

We compare this one a LOT to Goodfellas. Guest starring the hollywood legend himself, Joe gives us his personal feelings about this compared to Goodfellas. We also dig deep into Ace's character, the way this story works, and also how all dads can connect to this epic gangster movie. 

This is the end of our Scorsese run though. Now we must lay this to rest and depart from it. it was great to be with the ol' gang for a while, just hangin' with some goodfellas. All bets are off for the next series we will do.

Also, please check out Sirr's Furniture! He produces some amazing pieces of woodworking and we can personally vouch for the quality of his work. Check out his website at https://sirrsfurniture.com/NYFM or his Instagram for more pictures of his work.

SCORSESE’S GANGSTERS: The Departed (2006)

CONTINUING our SCORSESE'S GANGSTER series, we have Marty's 2006 Boston Epic, his Sole Oscar-winning film (direction AND best picture): THE DEPARTED.

 

[WARNING: If you've seen this movie, you won't be surprised to hear that this episode contains EXPLICIT LANGUAGE. There are also, as usual, many spoilers. If you haven't seen the movie, STOP NOW and go watch it!]

 

Rejoining us for this episode we have our favorite Irishman, Pat! Or as he is better known - Paddy O'Pat. I think he may be a bigger fan of this than the last flick he joined us for (i.e. the best movie ever made, Con-Air!).

This is a long one! We all have a long and important history with this movie, but somehow - after watching and rewatching over the last decade and a half - came out of this episode with new thoughts and new perspective. I think that's a sign of something great. We laugh, we cry, we learn a lot along the way. I guess. What did we learn here? I don't know. Maybe the real rats are the friends we killed along the way.

 

Come join us.

MOTHER’S DAY– Terminator 2: Judgment Day (1992)

Happy Mother's Day to all the mother's out there! As Dads, we appreciate you more than you know. Well, we have hopefully tried to show you exactly how much but you get the picture.

 

For this Mother's Day, in grand NYFM tradition, we are doing yet another James Cameron sequel centering on a strong female character called upon to mother in dire circumstances where the fate of all life rests squarely on her shoulders...

 

No, it isn't ALIENS again.

 

It's TERMINATOR 2: JUDGMENT DAY! 

 

The action classic with a strong family at its core holds a spot in all of our hearts and has one of our favorite tough movie moms in Sarah Connor. We talk family, we talk nostalgia, we talk the landscape of sequels and the legacy of the Terminator franchise.

SCORSESE’S GANGSTERS: Gangs of New York (2002)

"Let us go on again...and...plunge into the Five Points.... Many of these pigs [wandering the streets foraging for food] live here. Do they ever wonder why their masters walk upright in lieu of going on all-fours? And why they talked instead of grunted?"

~ Charles Dickens

People have been talking about the five points for a long time, and we are here to continue that conversation with Scorsese's Gangs of New York. Some of these dads really like this. Some think it's just ok. Some of us never want to see it again.

We dig into all sorts of things about this movie. We talk about how it is trying to do too much, weather or not it has aged well, and how this movie is working. It's a wild conversation here. 

It really doesn't feel good to be a gangster in the mid 1800s. The streets are nasty. The homes are filthy. Its a perfect situation for some dads to brawl. We hope you will join us with this absolutely crazy movie!

NEW RELEASE: The Batman (2022)

NYFM is coming at you with a NEW RELEASE! Some of us with a lifelong passion and appreciation for everything Batman. Others just really loving Colin Farrel teaching Batman how Spanish works!

 

We talk about everything we loved in Matt Reeve's The Batman, as well as some critiques we don't see eye to eye on...which is great!

 

So please relax, press cruise control in your souped-up black Dodge Charger and enjoy the pod.

SCORSESE’S GANGSTERS: GOODFELLAS (1990)

A NEW SERIES IS HERE!!! We are tackling SCORCESE'S GANGSTERS and the first movie is 1990's cinematic masterpiece, the must-see event of your life, possibly (one) of the greatest films ever made. It's about betrayal, community, family, violence, love, sin, redemption...everything a good movie is about!

 

We talk about Scorcese and set the groundwork for our series, we talk his Catholicism and guilt and sin. You know, the good stuff. Even more than that, we talk about those of us who finally experienced this for the first time and those of us who have seen this 10-odd times.

TIME LOOPS: Palm Springs (2020)

Here we are. Still talking about Time Loops. Still repeating that idea over and over. This time though, we are doing something much more recent and slightly pandemic related. It's Palm Springs everyone!

 

We talk how it ties into our series as a whole, we talk about Andy Samberg we talk about how this relates (or not) to specific generations, and we also talk quite but about RAUNCHINESS! No, we aren't raunchy here, but we talk about it because we all have kids. Do we ever want to watch raunchy comedies with them?

 

Join us on this loop-the-loop of time loop adventures and we hope you enjoy the ride!

TIME LOOPS: Edge of Tomorrow (2013)

For our third TIME LOOPS episode, we bring you EDGE Of TOMORROW, the alien war movie starring Tom Cruise and Emily Blunt! This was a fun one as it is a Cruise that he doesn't play often and it is one of a few very unique and original sci-fi movies that has come out in the last ten years.

 

We talk how it ties into our series as a whole, we talk about different versions and we talk about what exactly makes this summer popcorn extravaganza a DAD-MOVIE!

It’s The Oscars, bro! (The Second One)

Welcome to our second annual Oscar's episode. We recorded this immediately after finishing the Oscars and as your timeline feeds on your social media apps have been telling you, IT WAS WILD!

 

We are joined by a very special guest who works in the industry himself who breaks down some of the more interesting gaffes, faux pas, and general awkward goofy Oscars.

TIME LOOPS: About Time (2013)

For our second foray into time loops, it's ABOUT TIME! This charming rom-com about a boy who discovers he can time travel by just thinking really hard about it is one of the more touching and even at times, dare I say, controversial pick amongst us all. Unfortunately, Vito and Mike were unable to join the discussion but Jesse and Dan are joined by Jesse's brother Austin!

 

This movie and episode hold a big place in our hearts just as a podcast as over a year ago, we attempted to do this episode for the first time. After three hours and many broken audio files, we called it quits, the first and only time we have ever given up on an episode and it was lost to time. But we knew it could never stay gone! Maybe at some point in the future we will dig up the many corrupted and broken files and cobble together a Frankenstein version of that episode, but for now listen in as the guys do a deep-dive on one of the more charming and confounding movies we have run across.
