028 – Sullivan’s Travels

Ollie is NOT convinced that they will like “Sullivan’s Travels” BUT . . . well, maybe they do? It’s always hard to tell with teens.

027 – Fantasia!

Oh boy. We’re probably going to get dragged for this one, but we promised to be honest and, honestly, we found this one to be . . . difficult. To get through. It’s 1940’s “Fantasia!” Disney’s first big money loser! And, a favorite of people everywhere. Look, Ollie and I totally get why it’s amazing, but we also get that it’s not always well thought out. Or well paced. Or . . . interesting. I mean, just give it a listen, kay?

026 – Rebecca!

Ever feel like a nameless protagonist in your own story? Well, I bet *nameless protagonist* does! This week, Ollie and I cover our FIRST Alfred Hitchcock movie, 1940’s “Rebecca!” What’s with the creepy husband? What’s with the creepy mansion? What’s with the creepy housekeeper? Who knows?!

025 – The Hunchback of Notre Dame

Introducing the CLASSIC MOVIE MONSTER . . . discrimination. That’s right! Ollie and I are talking 1939’s adaptation of Victor Hugo’s “Notre Dame de Paris” and it’s a doozy. Like, it’s a solid film from a *film* perspective, but it’s got some uncomfortable stuff from a disability perspective. Also, a Roma perspective. It’s troubling all around, but surprisingly entertaining, all things considered.

BONUS! – The Shape Of Water!

We saw THE SHAPE OF WATER! Here’s our review with no spoilers and then – and don’t worry; we warn you – with a spoiler section!

 

024 – Modern Times!

Ollie and I are back to talk Charlie Chaplin’s 1936 masterpiece “Modern Times.” Does Ollie like it, though? Is the Little Tramp a bit too much? What’s with the age difference? How do you pronounce “gamin?” Does a chicken make a good funnel? Are we all in love with Paulette Goddard? Find out!

023 – The Raven!

Ollie and I can’t wrap our heads around this one. It’s . . . well it’s not *good* by any stretch of the imagination. It’s 1935’s “The Raven” and it’s got some talent on screen but the talent isn’t doing anything particularly . . . talented. Also, it’s definitely *not* “The Incredibly True Adventure of Two Girls In Love.”
