194. Oscar Nominations 2018

January 29th, 2018 · Comments

The nominations for the 90th Academy Awards were announced this week, so Matt and Ed talk about the movies they were happy to see get nominated (Get Out) and the ones they weren't (Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri), as well as what the nominees say about the Oscars as an institution at a time of social upheaval and introspection. They also get mad about Peter Rabbit and mourn the deaths of Dolores O'Riordan, Ursula K. Le Guin, and Mark E. Smith.

193. The Best Actors Working Today

January 14th, 2018 · Comments

As awards season kicks into high gear, Matt and Ed talk about who they think are the best actors working today, a discussion which inevitably gets derailed by talk about Method Acting as an exercise in performative masculinity, the ways in which critics devalue comedic performances, and Adam Driver's chest.

192. 2018 Preview

January 8th, 2018 · Comments

It's a brand new year, which means it's time to look ahead at what 2018 has to offer. After laying out their New Year's Resolutions, Matt and Ed sift through the release schedule to highlight some of their most anticipated movies coming out between now and August (with one October release that they forgot to remove from the episode plan), as well as some which they don't have high hopes for but which could still be interesting. They also talk about German New Year's traditions, become possibly the first podcast in history to joke about the long-forgotten ABC sitcom Teen Angel, and accidentally come up with a title for the next great Sundance sensation.

You can see the sketch Dinner for One, which Matt talks about in the intro, on YouTube
