For Lauren’s ‘Holiday’ film she chose the quasi-spy thriller The Long Kiss Goodnight starring Geena Davis and Samuel L. Jackson. For this winter-based movie, we give praise to the great script writing of Shane Black, discuss Doll piss gasoline physics, the rise and fall of Geena Davis’ career and we ask if this movie deserves a place in the pantheon of Christmas films alongside Die Hard.

Episode 73: My Life in Ruins

For her Romantic Comedy pick, Lauren takes Greg on a European vacation to Greece with My Life in Ruins. As we try to navigate our way through this Grecian film that has nothing to do with weddings, we examine the plethora of negative stereotypes, toilet humor character names, how to crash a bus with sexy history, and why Nia Vardalos can’t carry a film alone.

This month, Greg and Lauren distract themselves from the reality of The White House and turn to a more romanticized version with The American President. In our conversations, we discuss why you should always make your relationship status public, the misguided mudslinging campaign of Richard Dreyfus, and ask why the President can’t have his own wallet.

Episode 71: Beyond the Gates

For this episode, Lauren shows Greg the Indie Horror film Beyond the Gates, a film which centralizes around a killer VHS board game. Apart from the numerous comparisons to another famous dangerous board game movie, we also discuss our love of the practical effects in this low budget film, the potential hidden story of the creepy pawnshop owner, the raised then quickly lowered stakes of the plot, why you should always read the instructions before you begin to play a supernatural board game.

Episode 70: Child’s Play

For his Horror movie, Greg chose to introduce Lauren to the iconic killer doll Chucky in Child’s Play. While watching this movie with obvious puppets vs little people in costumes, we have many opinions about “Chicago’s Finest” and their lack of rules or reason, Chucky’s transformation into Jack Nicholson. We discuss the several critical flaws of Chucky’s murderous plots, and Greg comes up with another ‘creative’ connection to another popular movie franchise.
