163. Loving Imperfect Art

November 28th, 2016 · Comments

Matt and Ed are both battling illness this week, but they persevered in order to talk about loving imperfect art - those films and TV series that are close to their hearts despite having clear and glaring flaws. At the same time, Matt introduces the world to a new Star Wars character, and Ed reminisces about a wildly unsuccessful supernatural sitcom from the late '90s.

Also, this is the terrible Ruben Blades song that Ed sings terribly at one point in the episode.

162. Matt’s Birthday, 2016

November 20th, 2016 · Comments

It's Matt's birthday! In keeping with recent (i.e. a year old) tradition, that means he gets to decide the topic for this week's show, but instead of discussing a single subject, Matt and Ed rattle through a series of them, including nostalgia, great buddy movies, and when it's appropriate to introduce kids to violent movies. They also pitch an idea for what the second season of HBO's Westworld will be about, and it is an ironclad, irrefutable fan theory, primed for that sweet, sweet SEO bump.

161. SRS Film Studies 101

November 14th, 2016 · Comments

Inspired by Matt's nephew, who recently started studying film at A-Level, this week's episode finds the boys trying to develop their own syllabus of essential or gateway movies for newcomers to film, or those simply looking for starting points to expand their horizons. There's also a little bit of election talk at the start, so if you're sick of hearing about that then feel free to skip to the time code below.

Here is the essay about Leonard Cohen written by Sean O'Neal that Ed mentions towards the end of the episode.

160. Politics in Film and TV

November 6th, 2016 · Comments

Apparently there's an election coming up. To celebrate(?), Matt and Ed talk about films and television shows that tackle the world of politics, examples of overtly "political" filmmakers, and their favourite insults from The Thick of It.
