babylon ad, blindspotting, comedy, culture, michelle yeoh, movie, vin diesel
We made a very serious mistake and watched a very dumb movie. It’s Babylon AD this week – a decent to great cast in search of a film.

angela bassett, blackkklansman, comedy, culture, how stella got her groove back, movie, spike lee, taye diggs, terry mcmillian
We watched a movie about a strong black woman and her objective need for therapy – because it wasn’t her groove she was missing, if you know what I mean. Angela Bassett is a goddess and nothing is going to make us believe otherwise.

We watched a movie that Amity never heard of before and it lead to some weird tangents – a serial killer movie with a unique point of view – join us for 1978’s The Eyes of Laura Mars.

abba, comedy, culture, fatherhood, mamma mia!, meryl streep, movie, musical, sexual ellipses
Back to more appropriate summer fare: you know a movie is good when there’s an exclamation point in the title. Oh, also, the word appropriate doesn’t belong anywhere near this bizarrely plotted film. We watched Mamma Mia! And we have feelings.

1998, comedy, culture, july, movie, saving private ryan, steven spielberg, tom hanks, war movie, wwii
We had to try this record two times because a July mindset doesn’t lend itself to this July movie – from 1998, we went searching for Private Ryan (and we found two of them – spoilers).

July of 1988 brings us comedic heist film A Fish Called Wanda and all Amity can think is how have we never seen this before?

It’s July! Amity and Lemuel are on vacation this week, but we recorded this first – Animal House from 1978 – how’d it age? Listen to find out.
