Holiday Heists - Die Hard and Bad Santa

To kick off our Christmas movie bonanza, hosts Seamus & Kraig ease in with the controversial holiday choice of Die Hard, and combine it with a more recent holiday heist film, of a decidedly more holiday, but disgusting nature, Bad Santa. We share lively observations from a 30 year old classic, revealing that you can still see a movie as new after a long time, and then we share therapy over the epic downhill slide that is Bad Santa. Without going too holiday yet, we manage to ring in the season with what is probably a very appropriate start.

Planes, Trains, and Automobiles & Home for the Holidays

In a continuation of our holiday themed episode, Seamus and Kraig tackle perhaps the two most popular Thanksgiving films, Plains Trains, and Automobiles & Home for the Holidays. First, it's a talk of Steve Martin then vs Now, Martin vs Candy, the forever magic of John Candy, and the enigma of a filmmaker, John Hughes. Then, we discuss Jodie Foster as a director, the brilliant ensemble, and unique story of Home for the Holidays. We also compare and contrast the two, all while roasting Turkey-day itself. Pun intended.

Happy Thanksgiving from Repeat Viewing, and thanks to you all!

National Lampoon's European Vegas Vacation - Repeat Viewing Challenge 2!

Seamus and Kraig tackle their second Repeat Viewing Challenge with National Lampoon's European Vacation, after receiving wild claims it is the best of the series. To test that, we watched European and Vegas Vacations back-to-back for a stark, but very lively compare and contrast discussion. The entire franchise is assessed on the criteria of character, comedy and filmmaking, with clear results. This was so fun, you can expect us to complete the Griswold saga around Christmas time.

Angel Heart and Jacob's Ladder - Two halves of the same whole

Kraig and Seamus close out their Halloween month with personal favorite (unsung) horror films, Angel Heart & Jacob's Ladder, and reveal the amazing level of similarities and complementary elements that may tie these two together permanently. MAJOR SPOILERS are discussed, but you can jump onto Amazon Prime and watch both films before you listen to us ruin their many secrets. If you've caught up with them, enjoy our foray into the mysterious pairing of what might be the horror double feature most made to fit together. Happy Halloween from Repeat Viewing!

It Comes At Night and A Quiet Place - Post-apocalyptic, brooding bearded dad edition!

Seamus and Kraig talk about two recent films with strangely similar DNA, but vastly differing results, in the dueling post apocalyptic survival tales, It Comes at Night and A Quiet Place. We discuss the contrasting world building, palpable tension, interesting performances, respective bearded dads Joel Edgerton and John Krasinski, and the differing appraoches each director took. Plus, we talk about the way being a real life married couple impacts the chemistry between Emily Blunt and Krasinski, and our thoughts on Krasinski's first outing as a director.

Cabin in the Woods and Tucker & Dale vs Evil: Trope-tastically delicious!

Repeat Viewing Episode 24: "Cabin in the Woods - Tucker and Dale vs Evil" - Trope-tastically delicious! Seamus & Kraig discuss two very subversive and clever horror comedies, Cabin in the Woods and Tucker & Dale vs Evil, both using the genre against itself and making something new out of what remains. Both films are examined in the way they use structure and character to deliver the unexpected, and ultimately remain not only true to their roots, but improve on the genre.

Blade Trilogy - Suck on this, Cinema of the Vampire Part 2

Seamus & Kraig dissect the unique vampire films of the Blade trilogy, noting the extreme difference between each filmmaker along the way, and getting to the core of why this franchise, besides being immortal, refuses to die. We also talk about the absent-but-not-lost wonder of Wesley Snipes as an action star and actor, as well as the part David S. Goyer played in the short lived dynasty of the franchise.

Sweet Revenge Cinema 2: The Crow, Kill Bill, True Grit

Seamus & Kraig continue their epic talk about the revenge genre with 3 uniquely connected films. We discuss the cult status of the Crow, if it ages well or not, Brandon Lee, Alex Proyas, and the movie magic used to complete the film after Lee's death on-set. We profess our love on all levels for Kill Bill and Quentin Tarantino, and foray into interesting details that QT hid in the narrative & style. Then we break down why the Coen Brother's True Grit ages better and better, and the excellent work by all involved.

The 40 Year Old Virgin and our Judd Apatow favorites

Kraig & Seamus discuss the first feature film directed by Judd Apatow, as well as several of his other projects. From directing and producing movies, to creating or producing powerful television, Apatow has become a fixture in American entertainment, and we examine why that is rightly so, based on an immense and highly relatable library of work, amassed in a relatively short number of years. We are sure to talk about on of your favorite movies in this one!

Batman Mask of the Phantasm & other animated Batman

We also run down a list of favorite and not so favorite other Batman animated films that have come in the 25+ years since Mask of the Phantasm. For fans of the Bat, and newcomers alike.

The Joker on film: Cinematic variations on the Clown Prince of Crime

In advance of the new Joker origin film, starring Joaquin Phoenix, directed by Todd Phillips with Martin Scorcese producing, Seamus & Kraig run down the list of actors who have played the iconic role so far, and discuss hopes for the new interpretation. Plus, there is plenty of Batman talk, and overview discussion on the DCEU in general. Plenty of details to keep the Bat-nerds happy, but informative enough for those who few who may be unfamiliar with the Joker canon and character.

Elmore Leonard 3-fer: Get Shorty, Jackie Brown, Out of Sight

Hosts Kraig Rasmussen & Seamus Smith discuss the three seminal woks adapted for film from the writings of Elmore Leonard, as well as Leonard's swan song Justified, which served as a summation of his career in crime world building. We delve into the reasons these 3 films in particular are very unique, and the fascinating ways they are interconnected, both by their root in Leonard's work, but also through the work of their respective filmmakers. Join us as we break down three of our favorite films, and celebrate the amazing era of the late Elmore Leonard.

The Devil Wears Prada & HBO Watch part 3

Or two dudes talk about what just appears to be a chick flick. Kraig & Seamus break down why the Devil Wears Prada is a standout, intelligent dramedy of personal empowerment, making sacrifices, and going after what you want in life. We discuss the powerhouse quadruple leads Meryl Streep, Anne Hathaway, Emily Blunt & Stanley Tucci, as well as the work of director David Frankael.

Sweet Revenge Cinema 1 - Death Wish (74), Leon: The Professional, John Wick

We kick off a dive into movie themes discussing the age old genre of revenge, featuring the original Death Wish, Leon: The Professional, and John Wick. These are just the first 3 revenge films we will discuss, but we feel they are exemplary of the genre in very specific, unique and game changing ways. We share a lively chat about their connections, memorable elements, and their deepest themes, all while tying them to the greater genre of revenge cinema as a whole.

Also, we talk about the truly well developed characters, the beautifully mature handling of romance, as well as the powerful underlying themes or realistic (& hilarious) race relations, social struggles, and precarious life choices.

The Last Jedi - Success or Failure?

Kraig & Seamus dissect the seemingly much hated, most recent Star Wars film, the Last Jedi. We get into the intentions of Rian Johnson, what this film needed to be after The Force Awakens, and we look hard at the two films in comparison. This film lends itself perfectly to examining story in film, what sequels should be, two very different directors, and two divergent views of what Star Wars is-- those of J.J. Abrams and Rian Johnson. This is one of our best film discussions yet!

Ready Player One 1st Take - Is Spielberg back?

We tackle Steven Spielberg's virtually epic new film, complete with (mostly spoiler free) book to screen comparisons. After a couple weeks of mixed headlines and a bravura box office take, we decided to look at Ready Player One, as filmmakers, artists, and fans of the book by Ernest Cline. Everything from the way the IP is handled, to the deft script by Zak Penn and Cline, to the terrific performances by the incredible cast, and dig deep into the very present social commentary and Spielberg as a filmmaker.
