Episode 10 – DEFENDING YOUR LIFE

This week we watched the 1991 Albert Brooks film Defending Your Life, which is both lovely in its suggestion that one can find love in the afterlife, and terrifying in its suggestion that the soul’s continued existence could be at the hands of Rip Torn and a woman with too much plastic surgery. Join us as we discuss life after death in Judgement City, the effortless charm of Meryl Streep and Albert Brooks, overcoming fear, food guilt, romantic comedy grand gestures and of course, the 90210 connection.

Episode 9 – HAROLD AND MAUDE

This week we discuss the 1971 Hal Ashby film Harold and Maude, which is a cult favourite and a pretty damn perfect romantic comedy. Could 79 year old Maude be the original Manic Pixie Dream Girl? We think so. Boy do we love this movie.

Episode 8 – BUFFY THE VAMPIRE SLAYER

On our latest episode we discuss the 1992 film Buffy the Vampire Slayer in all of its vast layers. We chat about how it has aged over 20 years, the 90210 connections, neon spandex, Pee Wee’s Playhouse and what to do when a creepy man shows up in the change room of your high school gym. We also try not to talk too much about the TV show, ‘cause that could go on all night and Jenna and Alia would have to kick Lisa off the podcast.

Episode 7 – THE TRUTH ABOUT CATS AND DOGS

Two women, a handsome British photographer, low self-esteem, mistaken identity, tomfoolery, tall vs. short, blond vs. brunette, a cat, a very big dog, a turtle, Jamie Foxx, a complicated love triangle and a whole lot of silly men. Join us this week as we discuss the 1996 film, The Truth About Cats & Dogs, perhaps our first venture into the category of failed attempts at feminist romantic comedy. We didn’t learn very much about cats and dogs – oh wait, unless that’s a metaphor for Janeane Garofalo and Uma Thurman… we just got it.
