ONE HEAT MINUTE RUM AND RANT #39: THE FINAL BELL

On a special Patreon subscriber exclusive my buddy Blake Howard and I discuss the dubious merits of Sylvester Stallone’s pandemic project, the re-edited and robot-free Rocky IV: Rocky Vs. Drago. But mostly we keep coming back to our affection for Sly’s hilariously narcissistic, meathead philosophizing in the accompanying making-of documentary. – One Heat Minute, 11/26/2021

WATCH WITH JEN SEASON 2 – EPISODE 39: MICHAEL DOUGLAS TRIPS OVER HIS DICK

Had a lot of laughs with my friend Jen Johans talking about Michael Douglas’ reign as Hollywood’s most virile avatar of threatened masculinity. We cover the persecuted cocksman trifecta of Fatal Attraction, Basic Instinct and Disclosure, as well has his late-career comeuppance in the underseen indie Solitary Man. Also much discussion of nightclub sweaters. Watch With Jen, 09/18/2021

ONE HEAT MINUTE RUM AND RANT #27: REMEMBERING RAIDERS

Celebrating the 40th anniversary of one of the few perfect movies, my buddy Blake Howard and I waxed nostalgic on this Patreon subscriber exclusive remembering Raiders Of The Lost Ark.

ALL THE PRESIDENT’S MINUTES BONUS EPISODE: THESE ARE NOT VERY BRIGHT GUYS

Just when he thought he was out, breaking news compelled my buddy Blake Howard to revive his podcast so we could discuss the unfathomable idiocy of Donald Trump’s call commanding Georgia’s Secretary of State to commit election fraud. We also talked about The Irishman and Godfather III, because that’s what Blake and I do. All The President’s Minutes, 01/04/2021

INCREMENT VICE: EPISODE #43

Thrilled to join Travis Woods on his podcast breaking down Paul Thomas Anderson’s adaptation of Thomas Pynchon’s Inherent Vice. We discuss “the sea of memory and forgetfulness, the years of promise, gone and unrecoverable” and how the movie has more in common with Fear And Loathing In Las Vegas than just an attorney played by Benicio Del Toro. – Increment Vice, 10/09/2020

WATCH WITH JEN & FRIENDS: EPISODE #39

Had a great time sitting in with the delightful Jen Johans on Watch With Jen & Friends. We talked about the awkwardness of Jen being the only girl in her high school class who had a crush on Robert De Niro and then the conversation kept coming back to the Michael Douglas film Disclosure for some reason, which neither of us has seen. – Watch With Jen & Friends, 09/29/2020

CONTENGEN: DAY 4

8C2C3802-5E59-4DFB-876D-94B833AA6593

For his new podcast my One Heat Minute buddy Blake Howard has been calling film critic pals around the world to chat for ten minutes about life in isolation during the COVID-19 crisis. We discuss social distancing, drive-ins and our usual bullshit. I don’t think we shared much in the way of useful information but it sure was good to hear from a friend.ConTENgen, 03/21/2020

ALL THE PRESIDENT’S MINUTES: EPISODE #16

68A81373-9A1C-4E26-A81C-BF8EFB7DE73B

Sat in with my buddy Blake Howard on his latest insane endeavor, a minute-by-minute dissection of Alan J. Pakula’s 1976 classic All The President’s Men. In this episode we discuss the greatness of Jack Warden, split diopter shots, cigarette ashes and that time I watched Robert Redford watch a Dick Cheney documentary. Follow the money. All The President’s Minutes, 03/09/2020

EVERYTHING IS CANCELLED: OSCAR EDITION

4BBBC3DF-847A-4E06-93DF-406635089962

Skyped in again with my dear friend Craig D. Lindsey, who was kind enough this time to introduce me as “a longtime motherfucker, everyone likes him and shit.” (Only the first part is true.) In any case, it’s shortly after the Oscars and we’re talking about the euphoria of Bong Joon Ho’s history-making wins amid an otherwise disastrous telecast. Everything Is Cancelled, 02/10/2020
