SPIELBERG PART 3 - JAWS, JURASSIC PARK, and THE BFG

Friends and Neighbors, we return this week to the land of magic and mayhem, the land of large creatures and even larger victories, we return one final time into the mind of the great, the inescapable, the indefatigable Steven Spielberg! 

This is the moment you've been waiting for, the pinnacle, the finale, the whole purpose of this series - are JAWS, JURASSIC PARK, and THE BFG fit to enter the halls of the DAD CANON? The answer may move you, it may surprise you, it may threaten you - but we pray that you will stick through it to the end. You've gotten this far, my pretties. Don't give up now.

We'd love to hear from YOU about your thoughts on our new format, what we missed, or anything else you want to comment on.  

We'll be taking a short break after this and are very excited to return with a whole new series in October! Until then, be well!

SPIELBERG PART 2 - JAWS, JURASSIC PARK, and THE BFG

Friends and Neighbors, what's better than a whole new approach and a whole new series? NO IDEA when the episodes are going to drop! That's right, this was definitely on purpose. No it wasn't, we're busy/lazy people and today is the earliest we were able to publish. Sorry.

THIS WEEK, we bring you back to the land of MOVIE MAGIC, the land that was discovered, built, and perfected by the one, the only - Steven Spielberg. That's right, we're going back to JAWS. Going back to JURASSIC PARK. And going back to... the BFG? Well, two and a half out of three ain't so bad.

This week, we're talking about what we like, what we LOVED, and what we're kinda meh about. CHECK IT OUT!

We'd love to hear from YOU about your thoughts on our new format, what we missed, or anything else you want to comment on.  

Be sure to check back in NEXT WEEK for Part 3! Thanks as always for listening.

SPIELBERG PART 1 - JAWS, JURASSIC PARK, and THE BFG

Friends and Neighbors, we come to you bearing glad tidings of great change. Small change. Well, some sort of change. With this next series, we're trying something ENTIRELY DIFFERENT with the formatting - instead of breaking up the episodes by movie, we're breaking them up by conversation. 

Here, for our inaugural series of the new NYFM format, we have: STEVEN SPIELBERG CREATURE FEATURES! The films we are talking about here are Jaws, Jurassic Park, and Roald Dahl's BFG. That's right! Two of the biggest movies ever made, and a 'Oh, that one?' Wait and see, dear listener. Wait and see.

We will be spending the next three weeks talking about everything we normally talk about here, but allowing some of the larger conversation to flow freely between and among the movies. What do we talk about? WHO! WHAT! WHERE! HOW! WITH! OTHER STUFF! 

We'd love to hear from YOU about your thoughts on our new format, what we missed, or anything else you want to comment on.  

Be sure to check back in NEXT WEEK for Part 2! Thanks as always for listening.

Dan’s Birthday!

It is Dan's First Birthday Episode!

In case you thought Dan was a normal, chill dude, be ready for some surprises in this episode. He chose to discuss two very strange, existentialist movies. The 2009 film by Jaco Van Dormael, Mr. Nobody and the 2013 film by Denis Villeneuve, Enemy. These are wild, intense, very adult, and our conversations are just as wild, intense, and somewhat adult.

We dive into what the heck existentialist means, whether you have to like a movie for it to impact you in a meaningful way, and other light-hearted topics.

We hope you enjoy this discussion and beware spoilers!

Vito’s Birthday 2: The Thing

Here is Vito's Second Annual Birthday Episode!

 

Last year, Vito wanted to cover choreography, both with musicals and fight choreography. And to cover that, Vito picked The Raid, The Raid: Berendal, and All That Jazz.

 

This year is totally different.

 

The discussion this year is computer generated images versus practical effects. Basically, we are using The Thing (1982) and The Thing (2011) to compare and contrast the two different approaches to special effects.

 

We hope you enjoy this discussion and beware spoilers!

CAR MOVIES- Mad Max: Fury Road (2015)

NSFW: Crude jokes and language (except one of Mike's F-bombs are bleeped out for some reason. Why? Because I am mediocre.)

This episode is so chrome. Its so shiny.

Actually, it ain't shiny at all. Vito is under the weather, Jesse is sick as well, Dan's library ran out of wifi, and Mike read the word "Imperator" wrong. Its a strange episode and I love it. We have an amazing discussion about this insane action movie that is one of the most entertaining movies of all time. 

We hope you enjoy the finale to the Cars Series! Is this a dad movie though? Or is it just mediocre?

CAR MOVIES: Speed Racer (2008)

The third and perhaps most surprising installment in our CARS series (as in movies WITH cars, not the Cars movies) is Speed Racer!

If you have seen this movie then you will understand when we warn you this episode is fast, exciting, and a little all over the place. We grapple with our opinions - is this art for art's sake? Who was the intended audience for this movie? Was there an intended audience for this movie? And that is just during lap one.

Please buckle up and join us for this fun and exciting conversation. We promise if things crash and burn, the worst that can happen is you will bounce away in a soft cushy bubble.

GO SPEED GO!!!!

CAR MOVIES: Speed (1994)

Is there anything more "dad" than a car? Or a bus? Or Freeways?

No there is not. 

We are tackling some of our favorite tire-squealin' movies. The rubber really meets the asphalt in this series! (heh)

 

Today we are talkin' Speed! The Keanu Reeves classic of not trying to hit everything on the road. We get into some arguments in this one. Namely about freeways. (seriously though, how does NO-ONE know that the freeway isn't finished?) We talk about the good ol' 90s movie days, back when you could sit your butt down and just enjoy bad guys bein' bad and good guys bein' good. This is a really fun episodes and we hope you enjoy it!
