TFR 104: 2008 Pt. 1 (January-April)

Hello and welcome to a four part episode looking back at what has become a seminal year in modern cinema. 2008 arguably saw a shift in how movies are made and sold as we simultaneously saw trends both emerge and die off. (Goodbye first parts of failed series, hello Cinematic universes!) Come join us as we flip through the highlights (and lowlights) of a decade ago. (Jesus, has it been that long?)

TFR 104: A Good, Hard Stare

Hello and welcome! This week we take a good hard look at one of our top five favorite bears, Paddington! Specifically the movies. Austin grew up with the bear, Albert did not, so we have both the nostalgic perspective and the outsider perspective when looking at these films (we both loved them). So what makes this extremely british masterpieces of wholesome mischief so great? Let’s take a hard stare and find out!

TFR 102: Jaws

Hello and welcome to The Film Room!

This week, we take a look at a looong overdue entry, Steven Spielberg’s Jaws! Considered the first blockbuster (in the modern definition of the word), Spielberg’s first real theatrical outing, we look at why it holds up so well, as well as the controversy surrounding how it started America’s longtime fear of sharks. So sing along with our rousing rendition of “Show Me the Way to Go Home”, and get your chum buckets ready, because it’s JAWS!!

TFR 101: Re-Enter the Room

Hello and welcome! Since we’ve officially entered three digits, we’re finally releasing our radio pilot! Back in January, we were generously offered a slot on a British online radio station, and have been releasing episodes there both old and new. So this episode is essentially a soft “reboot” of sorts where we go back to our roots and re-establish ourselves for a new audience!

An update on our first episode, we are of course covering The Disaster Artist! We hope you enjoy!

Hello friends, and welcome to EPISODE 100, here at long last!!!

This week we have with us our most frequent guest, Ms. Zephyr! Together we talk one of the best low-key animated films of last year, the kid-centric movie adaptation of the smash hit books, Captain Underpants! Join us for some low-yet-highbrow fun!

You may be asking yourself: “Why did you choose Captain Underpants as your Episode 100? Well, we ask back: Why not? ALSO it was a ton of fun and spoke to our inner 8-year-olds, and don’t we need that?

TFR 98: Marvel #5 – Guardians of the Galaxy Vol 2

Hello and welcome back! To make room for new and fresh episodes, we are clearing out our recording backlog with a slight Blast From the Past. The Marvel past of a year ago! A much more innocent time, the time before Thanos and his infamous finger snap. So let’s go back a year and celebrate the wonder that is Guardians of the Galaxy Vol 2! We also talk Logan and the films that would be coming out by the end of 2017.

Thank you for being patient with us and be sure to tune in next week as we continue to release all that we’ve recorded in the last year!
