Description

At the intersection of fashion + nostalgia. We scratch the surface and sometimes deep dive into (mostly) 90s 'underground' film, music genres, fashion, and explore all the visuals in between.

Episode Date
132: I met this great guy Mom... | Mother May I Sleep with Danger? (1996)
01:21:42

Well, it's taken us about two years but we are finally diving into the waters of the 90s 'made for TV' movies. It was only right that the first one we reviewed was the cult classic, Mother May I Sleep with Danger? 

I was more than excited to get Charles' thoughts as a first time viewer and it was as wild as expected. We get into how the tv landscape changed, the MANY comparisons to the movie 'Fear, and why Tori Spelling is the Queen.

off-topic rants include: Game of Thrones, 90210, and voicemail as a story telling device in the 90s.

131: Left of the Dial | BBC Seven Ages of Rock [American Alternative]
01:07:38

This episode was first featured on our Patreon!

This is my favorite episode of this seven part series for obvious reasons. It covers Nirvana and also introduced me to a bunch of other bands as well. Featuring one of my favorite people in music, Henry Rollins who gives his takes on the scene in the 80s. We hear from the producers on the construction of the songs, the fame aspect and pressures, and end on a somber note.

Watch the episode: https://bit.ly/3ce8DGa

The rise of alternative rock in the USA. From its early underground days where bands like Black Flag drew inspiration from the DIY ethos of punk, Left Of The Dial traces the history of the network of fans, clubs and fanzines that sustained the scene and launched the careers of bands like R.E.M., The Pixies and Hüsker Dü. The film takes a fresh look at the explosion of the Seattle scene, culminating in the success of Nirvana's 'Nevermind' and the tragic loss of Kurt Cobain, an artist whose triumph and tragedy continues to cast an inescapable shadow.

I made a playlist of the songs featured in the episode: https://spoti.fi/3qJEv9F

130: Stop grade grubbing! | Welcome to the Dollhouse (1995)
01:07:51

What a dark and yet somehow warm indie film. I vaguely remember watching this in high school and thinking it was really dark and mean but still there was something else there I liked. I enlisted Jules, the queen of quirky comedies to review this one with me. We get into sooo many things in the film that couldn't be done now, the hilarious quotes, and compare Dawn's wardrobe to our own childhood fashion. 

off-topic rants include: thrift shopping, nerd fashion, childhood crushes

Back Track 004: She's a tartar, ain't she? | Gaslight (1944)
01:16:55

For the next venture into classic cinema we're looking at the origins of the buzz word that everyone talks about, Gaslight. This film from 1944 is a literal masterclass in acting and film noir study. This was one of the first films that introduced me into the old Hollywood world and I'm glad that Charles is with me discussing this brilliant and riveting story. We get into the quirks of this story, the terrifying realism of Charles Boyer's character, and question why they made him so attractive. 

Off- topics rants include: other great classic films, Cary Grant, vintage Oscars goss

Deep Cut: Clueless (1995) [Remix Edition]
01:28:09

I mean what's another excuse to rewatch Clueless for the millionth time than to do a remix of our original episode. We didn't have format back then so me and Jai just had to talk about it again! 

More behind the scenes! More costumes! More everything!

Forward Flash 023: You're in it right now, aren't you? | Garden State (2004)
01:17:56

Oh the depressive nostalgia of your 20s is upon us. Yeah, you guessed it we're talking Garden State. It reads like a 75% memoir of writer/director Zach Braff and literally hit me and Jai right in the feels during our rewatch. There were so many familiar emotions that came rushing back including how this soundtrack defined the 'indie generation' of the early 2000s.

129: We're in a bit of a decadent spiral, aren't we? | Velvet Goldmine (1998)
01:25:10

Get Glam! Get wild! Get kinda Bowie and Iggy? It's time to venture down the road of the 70s and glam rock. This styling is right up Jai's alley and we break down the looks we love and identify the future fashion it inspires. I on the other hand drool over Christian Bale in a baby tee.

You, Me and 5 Bucks 005: A chat w/ Recho Omondi of The Cutting Room Floor
01:16:51

This one I've been looking forward to for a long while. I've got Recho Omondi on the line for a conversation all about the 90s shows we loved growing up, our print fashion magazine origins as teens, and touch on points about fashion today.

I ask all about the story behind her color green signature, evolution of fashion in television, and get into some 'deep cuts' of the 90s from our perspectives.

Enjoy!

128: You still sleep with the light on? | Sleepers (1996)
01:32:51

This one was heavy. It's been a while since I've seen this film and it's been on my list to review. In a complete perfect casting that really gives such dimension to a difficult story to tell. Me and Jai talk about our research on the controversy surrounding the original source material, Brad Pitt's unusual lukewarm performance, and Brad Renfro.

off topic points include: Keanu Reeves and his charming energy and air conditioning

Back Track 003: Move, Dallas! | Alien (1979)
01:32:46

It's time to go forward to go back in time as Charles says. For the next 'Back Track' in the series we're talking Alien (1979). 

This is my first time watching this and boy was I missing out all these years! I was really into it and I'm so glad Charles decided on this one. We talk about the story and how incredible these special effects are, the steady terrifying pacing throughout, and why Sigourney Weaver is the ultimate final girl in space and time.

Off-topic rants include: Oscar rage, what type of animal we'd like to be reincarnated into, Mormons, and we talk our self-soothing songs in times of crisis

Forward Flash 022: I take little naps...like 10 to 15 minutes. | Spun (2002)
01:06:40

Another film that is easily in my top tier and we haven't reviewed it until now! 

Ugh, this movie is kinda gross and amazing at the same time. Me and Jai talk our weird feelings about parts of the story during our recent rewatch, literally FREAK OUT over the fashion, and realize this is Brittany Murphy's movie.

off-topic rants include: banned music videos, drug cinema, American Apparel and more indie sleaze talk

127: Pass me a tape. | Set It Off (1996)
01:18:53

This was an intense one. Full of so many emotions and ups and downs throughout. I'm so glad I watched this film with fresh eyes, it has been at least 20 years. I hope more people out there will watch and realize the magic that is, Set It Off from '96. 

We get into many different points of this story and how the performances by all four leads should have gotten all the awards. Me and Charles also talk interesting behind the scenes info, I obsess about the fashion, and we get into the social commentary that is still relevant 26 years later.

126: What are they gonna say? It's just words. | Gossip (2000)
01:06:12

This is one that has been on my list for a while. It's a dicey late 90s film which were popular at the time. Mikey has some interesting thoughts as a first time watcher and for me this has a whole nostalgia factor since it reminds me of high school. 

We get into the concept of gossip today and how it's now currency, the moody fashion, and the soundtrack that screams buy me at 'Tower Records'. 

Off-topic rants include: cell phones, Craig David, and Spice World

Track 1: The Cloak of Invisibility | Pistol Episode 001 [Patreon Preview]
00:58:33

Both me and Jai were so excited that a mini-series was being made about the Sex Pistols. Who else could possibly capture the chaotic spirit and the energy of London in the 70s but Danny Boyle? 

All 6 episodes are out now on Hulu (US) but we're just talking the first one for now. 

We touch on how perfect this series captures the scene in London, the fashion being on POINT, and the recent comments about the series by Johnny Rotten.

For our episode on the rest of the Pistol series join the Patreon!

125: Don't give me that tone! | The Birdcage (1996)

CINEMA. That is all. The Birdcage has been one of my favorite films growing up and the only people who could share that emotion are Mikey and Charles. So get ready for tons of impressions, personal stories, and our blind rage at the fact this didn't win all the Oscars in '96.

off topic rants include: Seinfeld, Love Island UK, and The English Patient

Enjoy an hour of the three of us going off the rails at times...

Some interesting bits include: y2k fears, the impending Courtney Love memoir, vintage MTV moments (again), what 90s trash tv we watched, and tagging celebs on IG which lead to an interesting encounter/story with Michael DeLuise. 

Stay glued for a hilarious story involving Chloë Sevigny at Coachella back in the day

124: I can't decide if my friends are the best or worst thing that ever happened to me. | The Broken Hearts Club: A Romantic Comedy (2000)
01:14:52

Within 10 minutes of watching this film I could quote it by heart. It has been at least 10 years since I've seen it and it still has the same effect all these years later. What a refreshing film filled with heartwarming friendships, broken hearts, and one of the best ensemble casts! 

Me and Mikey are massive fans and talk our many favorite euphemisms, THAT Jennifer Coolidge cameo, and we play an interesting gam of "Who would you kick out of bed?"

off-topic rants: Queer as Folk, our youth in the nightclubs, first tv crushes

Forward Flash 021: I can't relate to 99% of humanity. | Ghost World (2001)
01:25:30

It's like someone took bits from my 17 yr old cynical brain when writing this film. This is my second time watching it and I try to work out why I didn't like it the first time. Jules is the total authority on this film so it has been on the list to review for a while. 

We chat about the crazy weird story, why we worship Steve Buscemi, and the FASHION!

off-topic rants: quirk cinema of the 2000s, how I started watching The OC, how Jules is still searching for THAT top in 10 Things I Hate About You, and record collectors

It's been more than time to reach out to other 90s heads out there. This is my first venture in interviewing and I just had to talk with Brandon who runs the instagram account, @1990archives 

We get into our fave 90s bands and fashion era/brands, why MTV needs more than a reboot, and how he gathers info on the 90s scene for his page.

01:32:14

What a film. This is cinema. It was amazing to finally take this in the way it should be. Me and Charles were completely hypnotized for the first 30 minutes and had so many first thoughts. We got into other casting options, the travesty at the 1977 Oscars, the fashion (specifically Betsy), and how this music score was top notch.

Off- Topic rants include: old hollywood man candy, Martha Stewart & Cybill Shepherd beef, Meryl Streep, women focused 90s sitcoms

123: Warm. Warmer. Disco. | Pulp Fiction (1994)
01:21:08

Finally we're talking a film from the 90s that created a sub-genre all its own, Pulp Fiction. While you may remember the poster of this film being in every dorm room for 20 years, I remember that iconic Bob from Mia Wallace and the Royale with cheese. 

Since Me, Charles, and Jai are big Tarantino fans we had a super blast finally talking this pop culture staple of cinema. We get into the LONG list of actors who tried out for various parts, the subtle but important fashion moments, and I started crying realizing Jack Rabbit Slim's isn't a real place. 

Off-topic rants include: the controversy in Charles' life over this soundtrack, parental choices, why I didn't see many 80s movies

Wow. What a film. There really must have been something going on in 1999, because so many great films were released that year. Me and Jai touched on so many aspects that we loved including the cinematography, directing, and every stitch of the fashion. And we talked about that neon swimsuit. 

Off-topic rants include: Val Kilmer, the casting process, Seinfeld

01:27:06

What a wild ride this movie was! I love the music/record industry storylines of 90s movies. This one was sooo ridiculous and hilarious and made me love Brendan Fraser even more than I already do. 

Me and Jules went a bit off the rails with our music biz talk and basically pointing out how everything isn't as easy as getting your single on the radio anymore. We get into the FASHION (yep), the other casting possibilities, and why men need to start wearing crop tops again.

Off-topic rants include: the unspoken rules of submitting demo tapes, the death of the movie soundtrack, and other outlaw rockstars.

Yes, we're finally chatting the sequel to Trainspotting (1996) for our 'Forward Flash' episode! 

We had such a blast talking this film, it's probably one of the only sequels that actually holds up to the original and is an utter delight. Me and Jai point out how the characters changed in 20 years and the many nods to the original. The soundtrack, understated fashion, and the update to 'choose life'.

Off-topic rants include: slang, Tom Hanks, "method" acting, and Terminator 2

120: You name the vice I name the price. | 8mm (1999)
01:02:43

Another disturbing film that we both went into not knowing anything about. And we sorta wish it stayed that way. It was through this dark journey we learned all about the underground world of sn*ff films. I basically decided to watch this because of Nicolas Cage and Joaquin Phoenix. 

Me and Mikey talk about the darkness of 90s film themes, the fact that Mona May did the costume design, and how people continue to freak us out. 

Off-Topic rants include: Mikey's top 3 actors, that A&F documentary, and Batman

Emergency Episode: You'd better hold on tight, spidermonkey... | The Twilight Saga
02:07:47

For some reason about a month ago I decided to watch Twilight and inadvertently watched the whole saga. Now I knew I was definitely late to the game and I wanted to gab about it with my two friends Jules and Charles. This quickly devolved into a pretty unhinged long convo all about our problems with Bella's character, the endless problematic things Edward does, question the reason of Jacob at all, and the bomb soundtracks. 

Team Carlisle

Off topic rants include: the Johnny vs. Amber trial, dog walking injuries, Ann Rice, and Twilight TikTok

119: There's no need to be snotty! | Dick (1999)
01:20:51

No, not that kind of dick. We're talking the Watergate centered comedy from the glorious film year of 1999. This is my first time watching and I'm so glad Charles recommended it for the episode. We didn't know much of the real story but would like to believe that two teenage girls really did break open the case. 

Me and Charles got into the MANY fashion looks, hilarious quotes and moments, and marvel over the comedic genius of Kirsten Dunst & Michelle Williams. 

Off topic rants include: silly tv fashion, early Project Runway seasons, unwatchable movies, and our own Watergate theories.

118: It's really easy to be a prude when you're not attracted to him, isn't it? | But I'm a Cheerleader (1999)
01:06:03

Another underrated 90s gem! I remember seeing this film ages ago and watching it again now was even better. Talk about a hilarious story with a great theme and an incredible cast! Me and Mikey talked about our love of Clea Duvall and Natasha Lyonne and how they are responsible for some of the most groundbreaking films of the era. 

We get into the story of how Natasha was cast as Megan, the fashion and interiors that are to die for, and why Rupaul playing a  counselor is pure CAMP.

Off-topic rants include: why we're stoked for 'Nope', dream cast of a tv version, and the movie landscape of 1999.

Graham and Megan forever!

117: What do you get for the man who has…everything? | The Game (1997)
01:39:35

I've got my friend Suzy back along with her husband Ben to talk the 1997 David Fincher film, The Game. We've been talking about doing this episode for a while so I was extra curious to see this film for the first time being a Fincher fan. 

This film really offers up more questions than answers. During our discussion we came up with ideas for a series that could work, how this differs from other Fincher films, and how Michael Douglas plays the perfect rich guy whose life gets all the way fucked up.

Off-topic rants include: illusions, rich families, and nepo babies.

Late 90s TV Emergency: Popular Episode 1 (1999)
01:18:07

I flew into a late 90s flurry when I saw that episodes of Popular were on Youtube. From the mind of Ryan Murphy in 1999 this is not your typical show about high school. Both me and Mikey are day 1 fans and we talk our history with the show, the evolution of Ryan Murphy, and why Mary Cherry is one of the best tv characters ever. 

I hope more people discover this 90s tv gem!

Forward Flash 019: I lost something on the way to wherever I am today. | Last Days (2005)
01:18:12

This was an interesting one to review. It's been on my list for a while and I think I literally changed my views on it halfway through. 

For both me and Jai hadn't seen it in a while so there we more things we didn't notice before. We get into the 'fiction' but not really of the story, the weirdness of the whole house, and question what scenes truly meant in relation to being "loosely based" on Kurt Cobain

Off topic rants: avatars and the fashion metaverse aka. just wtf is going in the digital world

Back Track 001: You can wake up now, the universe has ended. | Rebel Without a Cause (1955)
01:33:22

I'm an oldie at heart. It seems like I always want to have been born in an earlier decade. There just had to be a series created for films before 1990. For the first 'Back Track' episode we're talking Rebel Without a Cause from 1955. Starring James Dean, Natalie Wood, and Sal Mineo this is one of my favorites from the classic Hollywood era. Me and Charles had a ball talking this modern look at 50s teen society. 

Some things we discussed are stories from the set, who we would cast nowadays, the infinite layers of this story, and of course the immense acting style of James Dean. 

Off-topic rants include: Josh Hartnett, swooning over old Marlon Brando screen tests, and theorize what may have happened to Natalie Wood that fateful night

00:59:15

We waded through the murky waters of the straight to DVD rack to bring you two sequels you maybe never knew about or just plain avoided. 

Me and Mikey decided that we would look at these films from a different perspective and ask ourselves, Did these need to be made, and were they really all that bad? 

Spoiler alert: they sorta were but we had fun!

Welcome to the Hellmouth | Buffy the Vampire Slayer Season 1 [Patreon Preview]
00:54:47

Growing up one of my all time favorite shows was Buffy the Vampire Slayer. We called it "appointment television". I was spending time queuing up my VCR so I could record each episode. 

I'm joined by my childhood friends Mikey and Charles who are also super fans. We decided to space out our chats about the seasons since we wanted to give it a proper rewatch. So expect a Season 2 deep dive soon. 

For now we just give a starter episode into the world of Buffy, the eventual Scooby gang, and Sunnydale. 

Enjoy! ⚰️ 🗡

115: Money Mud. | Camp Nowhere (1994)
01:07:13

Watching this movie was like cuddling up with a warm blanket. It's one of me and Jules' childhood faves and it was like going back in time seeing this again. There were so many adult takes we had like how this could never work as a storyline now, the pipeline from summer camp to cults, how this 90s kids fashion is literally on point, and how Christopher Lloyd plays the weird and cool uncle we wished we had growing up.

Off-topic rants include: my own sleep away camp story, how there are so many tv shows and films about camp, and I keep giving Jules a list of movies she needs to watch

114: Do you know what it is that we've lived this long the way we have? | Alive (1993)
01:11:50

It's hard to even put into words the range of emotions that came over me watching this story and delving into this incredible true story. While based on a true story of the Uruguayan Air Force Flight 571 about a soccer team that crashed in the Andes mountains in 1972, the film was equally as compelling. I couldn't even slightly imagine what this must have been like to go through. 

This was Charles' pick as a film so I get into his history with the film and we talk some differences between the true story and the film, some behind the scenes info, and pose other survival situations.

Off-topic rants include: The Donner party, Into Thin Air, climbers, and Josh Lucas

We're going full on virus infection mode for the Forward Flash episode this month. It was revealed in a previous episode that I have never seen the 2002 film 28 Days Later and Charles and Jai were horrified. So, I finally saw it and I loved it.

Danny Boyle is just amazing and we found out so much behind the scenes and technical aspects to shooting this film. We list the many reasons we love Cillian, how this story unfolds, and the unexpected fashion we appreciated. 

Also, throughout the episode me and Jai tell Charles to start watching Peaky Blinders about 6 times.

Off-topic rants include: what our zombie plans would be, the Olympics, Charles' mom fighting possums, and the state of the Oscars this year

01:38:48

We are finally talking one of my favorite films of the 90s, The Basketball Diaries. Based on the novel by Jim Carroll (which is amazing btw) and starring Leonardo DiCaprio in one of his best early performances. There are so many aspects that I love: the location, cinematography, and the voice overs blended into the story. (Movie discussion starts at the 15:00 mark)

Me and Jai get into chatting about Leo in the 90s, the forgotten fashion elements, and obsess about this soundtrack.

Off-topic rants include: Zombie movies, Brad Pitt, our Euphoria fatigue, thoughts on the new series Pam and Tommy, and Tom Hanks.

Me and Mikey break down the many reasons why this swept the Razzies that year and ponder what this film could have been with different casting. Throughout the episode we talk the many plot holes, the FASHION, and get into the long list of actresses who auditioned for the role of Nomi Malone.

Off-topic rants include: Leonardo DiCaprio, stripper soundtracks, and Mikey's own experience at an amateur night

Forward Flash 017: You're the boss, applesauce! | Factory Girl (2006)
01:42:25

Groovy! For our Forward Flash we're going back yet again to the NY art world of the 60s. Enter in Edie Sedgwick and Andy Warhol's 'The Factory'. This is one of my favorite episodes yet because there is so much mystery and intrigue surrounding the life of Edie Sedgwick. Her influence, style, and just overall vibe is something truly to behold. Sienna Miller as Edie and Guy Pearce as Andy is beyond and makes for such a great film. 

Me and Jai obsess about the FASHION, try to work out what is true and what was dramatized, and I tell my own story meeting Jude Law (and yes, Sienna Miller was there)

Off-topic rants include: The Beatles, A Clockwork Orange, Marilyn Monroe

Starring Robin Tunney (Sarah from The Craft, Deb from Empire Records, duh!) Me and Charles talk the amazing soundtrack, the story logistics, and the actresses who turned down the role of Marcy. 

Off-topic rants include: X-Files, celeb gossip, mens hairstyles, and the liability the lawyer from Jurassic Park really had leaving those kids in the car.

There are so many aspects of this film that we both hold dear to our childhood hearts.  Again, I'm swooning over Johnny Depp being  Buster Keaton, the incredible amounts of food talk, how I want to LIVE in this house, and we talk about the warm fuzzy feeling we have by the ending.

Forward Flash Episode 016: Michael, I am not addicted to drugs. I am addicted to glamour. | Party Monster (2003)
01:38:51

Money. Success. Fame. Glamour. 

We're back in the NY club scene about a decade later with the Party Monster story. While we mostly stay on the film track we get detailed about the many documentaries about the true story that more than inspired this tale. There are so many fashion standouts that could be it's own episode. The portrayal of Michael Alig and James St. James by Macaulay Culkin and Seth Green deserves all the awards. Me, Charles, and Mikey talk this INSANE story, the uncomfortable accuracies, and question just how the fuck this all happened.

Off-topic rants include: TV shows we're obsessing on, newish Brokeback Mountain news, and tales about Mikey's dog Boss.

"Now it's all about photo placement. So if you're in a group of three always, always, always make sure that you're the one standing on the right because that way when they print the picture you'll be the one on the left. The caption will read "James St. James and bla bla bla" were seen, okay?"

Welcome to the world of disco, drugs, and glamour! We're talking the apparent box office bomb, 54 which has become one of my comfort films. Me and Mikey couldn't wait to talk about the vibe of this production and finally we have the Director's Cut that left out so many plot points from the 1998 version. Our main talking points are the MUSIC, of course the 70s fashion, and why the movie studios sometimes mess everything up.

Off but also on topic rants include: real stories from Studio 54, drag queen staple lip synch songs, and we spend A LOT of time talking how Ryan Phillippe had a chokehold on our teenage dreams.

All three of us talk what we know about her films, discuss her extensive filmography and the subsequent decline when she met her future husband, Simon Monjack. There are so many shocking moments that surprised us all. We get into our issues with the doc as a whole, talk other similar celebrity deaths, and how the film left us all with a sad feeling and even more questions.

105: Blood! Blood on my needlepoint! | Slums of Beverly Hills (1998)
01:06:03

It's another wild ride with a dark comedy about dysfunctional families. This one happens to be a sleeper with an incredible cast that delivers throughout. I'm in love with Viv who is the living the embodiment of Daria Morgendorffer. Me and Mikey talk our favorite scenes, fashion moments, and why we never wanted this film to end. 

Off topic rants include: Target, the Britney Spears 'Chaotic' series, and talking shit on former school mean girls.

104: You be him, and I'll be her. | The House of Yes (1997)
01:05:03

Surprise! Since it's a holiday weekend Charles suggested we review a fucked up family on screen. Well, I definitely never expected we would reach quote possibly the most screwed up Thanksgiving film that can ever exist. 

Starring indie Queen Parker Posey, Tori Spelling, and Freddie Prinze, Jr?! Say no more. Directed by Mark Waters who later went on to direct a little film called Mean Girls, this writing is just hilarious in the darkest way. This is one of those indie gems and we hope you enjoy this episode! 

Off topic rants include: the state of current television, more Real World obsessions, and how the 90s 'movie of the week' themes are HEAVY, and budgeting streaming services.

01:27:35

Witness! God, I love this movie so much. Monster trucks, Tom Hardy, that is all. Why this film didn't win all the awards is beyond me and we talk all about it. Me and Charles go ALL in about how the behind the scenes deserves its own film, the minimal script but impactful story, and why George Miller is living on another planet and we want in.

Off topic rants include: airplane horror stories, why there should be a Guns N Roses biopic, and we dissect a very interesting photo of Tom Hardy drinking a soda in a Five Guys.

103: There's no gene for fate. | Gattaca (1997)
01:02:12

I love a good sci-fi dystopian film. It's always spooky season when we're talking about genetic manipulation. Both me and Mikey have never seen this and WOW what a striking film. Visually it's just out of this world and we get into a lot of behind the scenes, architecture, minimalist fashion, and intricate story. 

Off but also On topic rants include: cloning, space travel, and re-casting movies for fun.

My So Called Life Episode 001: We did. We had a time. | Pilot (1994) [Patreon Preview]
01:26:34

A preview of what we're doing now over on Patreon! 

We're finally HERE! It's time to talk 'My So Called Life' one of my personal favorite TV shows of all time. There is so much to get into and just starting with Pilot we learn so much and try to dissect it all. 

In the series premiere we meet Angela Chase, an extremely introspective 15 year old who is grappling with identity and new friendships starting in her sophomore year of high school. She has an interesting family dynamic with parents Patty (ugh) and Graham (who is the best) and little sister Danielle. We also meet Rayanne and Rickie, her new friends that she's keen to explore a different side of life much to the dismay of her former friend Sharon. And we can't forget the introduction of a character who's name needs no explanation...Jordan Catalano. 

"Don't you love how he leans?"

So join us every week as we review each episode of a show that can only be described as ahead of it's time and timeless all at once... only on Patreon!

102: I'm made of ink, but I'm no dream. | Cool World (1992)
01:22:15

What a film to talk about when I've got a new guest host for the pod! Join me and my buddy Pete as we talk the totally weird but awesome, Cool World (1992) directed by Ralph Bakshi. As you could probably tell, this was originally slated for a 'rated R' release and the script went through multiple rewrites to garner that PG-13 rating. 

We get into all the mess behind the scenes, discuss the many possible casting choices, and the kicking' soundtrack.

Off-topic rants include: stoner movies, great movie soundtracks, British sitcoms, and Stanley Kubrick.

101: Watch your heads. | Sleepy Hollow (1999)
01:15:44

It's an unwritten law that you have to talk about Tim Burton during October. Just as I planned it on this Halloween we simply HAD to talk about Sleepy Hollow. Even more surprising Charles had never seen it so his first time viewer perspective was welcome. I on the other had took this as yet another opportunity to talk about Johnny Depp. We get into all the behind the scenes creation, how we love the fashion, and who the true villain of this story really is. 

Off topic rants include: MTV's The Real World, 90s 'techie' movies, and what our 'comfort food' tv shows are

100: Think she goes all the way? | Cherry Falls (2000)
01:24:56

Again, another film I had no idea existed until literally WEEKS ago. Both me and Charles give our first time fresh high level thoughts about Cherry Falls that literally gets better with each watch. Of course who doesn't want to see a slasher film in the mountains of Virginia where virgins are the target. I mean... 

In this episode we talk the SUPER weird relationship between Jody and her "dad", the ridiculousness of the story at every turn, and continue to ask the hard questions. Like: what in the actual fuck is going on? 

Off topic rants include: our love of celeb gossip podcasts, whether or not I should start a HateWatch series of movies I hate, and the fascinating genre of the 80s and 90s TV movie.

Forward Flash 014: It could look like someone you know... | It Follows (2014)
01:08:35

What a new and inventive film concept in a contemporary world that seems riddled with remakes. This one for me was cinematography heavy since I was being such a nerd about it. There were so many different layers to this film and it was the direction, music, and the story that brought it together. Me, Jules, and Jai talk our fav creepiest "It" encounters, the nondescript but cool fashion, and how we're all OBSESSED with the score. 

Off topics rants include: why we all want to make a movie, new horror movies, and Jules talks living in an ACTUAL haunted house

01:04:15

October is here and we're ready for the erotic tales of vampires: Winona Ryder, Keanu Reeves, and the diva of all, Dracula! We talk the Coppola epic tale based on the Bram Stoker novel. 

Most of our talk revolves around the costuming (which is out of this WORLD), the many versions of Dracula and vampires in film and tv that we love, and so much behind the scenes. 

Off topic rants include: Buffy, why Keanu plays a lawyer CONSTANTLY, and I officially declare that I want to be a vampire.

098: This is your idea. If you don't like your ideas, stop having them. | Ginger Snaps (2000)
01:01:33

It's October baby and it's time for the scaries! For the first selection this month we're talking Ginger Snaps! I had to get Mikey on the pod since he's my resident 'scary movie' icon. 

Starting with this film which at first glance may be considered a werewolf story, but it's SO much more. This Canadian cult film is centered around becoming a woman and all the ways it changes you. Me and Mikey talked so much about the many favorite moments we had, LOTS of behind the scenes, and how The Craft definitely played a part in the inspiration.

Off topic rants include: new horror films coming out, American Horror Story, and why Ryan Murphy needs to write something for Lindsay Lohan.

There are so many twists and turns that it will give you whiplash in the best way. While most wrote off Wild Things in the 90s as 'that movie with the threesome", it's so much more. Me and Charles get into the Florida of it all, this neo-noir structure, and try to break down the mystery and allure of Denise Richards.

Off topics rants include: chipmunks, the Robert Wagner "mystery", and why the Everglades are a perfect scene for a crime.

YES. Finally we're talking another Larry Clark film here on the podcast. While Bully is hard to watch, it's one of my personal faves.

On this episode we get into the true crime story, lots of behind the scenes details (including where the real people are now), the Clarkisms throughout, and the myriad of reasons why we miss Brad Renfro.

Off topic rants are off the rails as usual and range from grooming habits to why this all was planned at a restaurant style Pizza Hut.

Has anyone ever heard of this film? It's like a map point if you're in the know. Dust off your UFO pants, candy bracelets and glow sticks cause we're going back to the start of the interwebs and the tail end of communicating without cell phones. Immediately this film has the cred cause DIGWEED! Me and Jai talk our own raver stories of the late 90s, the (great at the time but actually awful) fashion, and the MUSIC! 

Off topic rants include: what we think of the new Matrix 4 trailer, wanting more raver documentaries, and more celeb gossip only I care about.

Wow. We're here. Actually you've brought us here because this film won our instagram poll for next up. It's time to take a deep breath and witness some 'urban horror' on screen. Often listed as a film that you would never want to see twice, I happen to disagree. In order to keep from getting too grim I found lots of behind the scenes and technical notes about the filming itself. The casting was beyond top notch, THAT haunting score, and the subtle fashion in this film that I really enjoyed. 

Off topic rants include: me just starting The Walking Dead, Beastie Boys, and tales from Charles' ex-nutritionist, Tammy

We talk Lords of Dogtown, a story about skateboarding in 1970s Southern California. Following the pioneers of the sport at the time: Stacy Peralta, Tony Alva, and Jay Adams. I had so much to say about this one, including wishing I was transported back to Venice Beach in the 70s. Both me and Jai chat about the incredible casting, why director Catherine Hardwicke was perfect, and marvel over the fashion and music throughout.

Off topic rants include: Ben Affleck, The Talented Mr. Ripley, and climate change.

Some of the best fashion in film designed by L'Wren Scott was such a hidden gem to discover!

On this episode we talk the lure of teen romance in 90s films, the logistics of running away from home, and I pretty much drool over all the fashion and the AMAZING soundtrack.

Random topics include: what nightlife scenes we would have loved to experience, rave fashion, and for some reason a rant on the perfectness of Cillian Murphy.

01:23:59

Get ready cause it's time to explore the groovy world of 70s adult films and incredible mid-century modern homes. Me and Mikey were instantly transported back to the 70s resurgence that happened  in the 90s. There's a lot of behind the scenes drama, weird casting options, and we get into why we wished this was an NC-17 rating.

Forward Flash 008: The summer I was 8 years old, 5 hours disappeared from my life. | Mysterious Skin (2004)
01:17:58

This month's journey into the 00s is a return to one of my all time favorite directors, Gregg Araki. While this film deals with trauma and dark themes I was anxious to get Jai's opinion as a first time viewer. We talk the a lot about the production, adaption to the screen from the novel, and the incredible acting throughout.

084: Chaos is what killed the dinosaurs, darling. | Heathers (1989)
01:10:49

We're taking it back to the 80s! Even though we're usually in the 90s world we had to pay homage to Winona Ryder, Shannen Doherty, and Christian Slater in  Heathers.  This film is piece of fashion in film history as well as being one of the most quotable. We talk our favorites, the insanity of the story, and details behind the scenes.

We were in a bit of a  Keanu mood (when are we not though) so we decided to finally talk Point Break. Some of our talking points include why Kathryn Bigelow was the best choice as director, the mysterious world of surfing, and why this film never ages. 

Off topic rants include my intense requirements for a meatball sub at the 18:00 minute mark

082: Well, it's about living forever, aint it. | Live Forever: The Rise and Fall of Brit Pop (2003)
01:29:07

Yes, it's time for another rock doc. We take a journey across the pond to see what the music scene was in early 90s England. Enter in Britpop. This episode got somewhat chaotic in a good way. Topics include talking Britpop in the short period of purity, our own love of the genre, and our thoughts on the verbal sparring between Liam and Noel Gallagher.

"This is your last chance. After this, there is no turning back. You take the blue pill - the story ends, you wake up in your bed and believe whatever you want to believe. You take the red pill - you stay in Wonderland and I show you how deep the rabbit-hole goes."

--

This episode felt like a mind melting session. Me and Mikey talk the impact this film still has today in all areas of culture. We examine some interesting casting possibilities, the fashion, and constantly question our own realities.

---

Wow we're finally here! We've been transported back to McKinley High School in 1980. That's right starting from the pilot that aired on NBC in 1999. I couldn't have possibly imagined how incredible this one season show would be. 

Some of the many topics we cover are cast introductions, a bit of backstory, then break down everything we learn on this amazing pilot. 

This our first episode so join us for this wild and unforgettable ride through one of the best shows in television!

Me and Charles are literally obsessed with this film and couldn't wait to give you dramatic readings, impressions, and geek out for an hour. Let's be real, it's basically just both of us getting our LIFE for over an hour and how we demand multiple sequels and a tv series about ALL these women.

080: Hold on to your butts. | Jurassic Park (1993)
01:29:29

This is one of the most classic films of the 90s. Let's face it we all think dinosaurs are cool. Maybe not so cool if we're thrown together with them in a theme park from hell situation. 

Charles gives us a science lesson with his extensive knowledge of the book and the differences from the animals in the film and what scientists know now. We get into the intense sound mixing that created each dino growl, and me and Mike ask all the questions like...how did this even happen? Were these selfish adults? Is Hammond a super villain? Why does it hold up so well after all this time?

079: What's your philosophy of life? | Kid 90 (2021)
00:46:15

The 90s nostalgia was heavy with this one. It's like being transported back the world of high school friends, summers in parks, and general hanging out before the days of social media. 

This so happens to star the life of Soleil Moon Frye from child actor to teen years with famous friends along the way. 

Me, Charles and Mikey talk about this film, our lives in the 90s, and gossip about all these 90s celebs in their youth.

078: Is it just me, or did this trip go downhill since we ran out of Lucky Lager? | Kalifornia (1993)
01:15:55

This film was ALOT. I quickly remembered why I bought this DVD at a video store closing shop ages ago for less than $5. There were so many aspects of this film we forgot about since our recent rewatch. We get into the confusing tone of the story, an undiscovered fashion icon in Michelle Forbes, and literally wonder where this 9 mil budget went.

Off topic rants include bitching about Vogue, stars that aged well, and recent celeb gossip.

Forward Flash 006: Do you believe in time travel? | Donnie Darko (2001)
01:22:43

Does anyone truly know what this film is about? The beauty of this film from 2001 is that it really gets more involved with each viewing. I randomly spend the first 5 minutes trying to convert Jules into a Ryan Gosling stan, discuss how every film deserves a director's cut, and we piece all the perfect elements of this story together.  

Send us a tweet if you also own the Donnie Darko: Director's Cut  'cause I mean you have to at this point.

Well...this was steamy and A LOT. We've waded through the murky waters of erotic thrillers of the 90s.   Capping it off with the Sharon Stone & Billy Baldwin film, Sliver. It paid off for us to get this complete Cinemax after dark film. While we continue to be jealous of Sharon Stone, our thirst level for Billy Baldwin is at an all time HIGH. Our apologies in advance.

We managed to get severely off track and profess our love for Taco Bell. Other topics included this wild story, who the story was originally meant for, and why we felt cheated out of a Robert Redford love scene.

Me and Mikey get into the amazing costumes, the many villains in Gotham world, Jim Carrey being awesome, and why Val Kilmer's Bruce Wayne is sort of sociopathic like Patrick Bateman.

During the episode Jai is vexed on my feelings about Natalie Portman, we examine problematic themes by  2021 standards, and break down how incredible this styling and cinematography is to the story.

On our journey into the somewhat departure of 90s films (wait did that make sense) we talk the time travel, relationship history bending world of Michel Gondry and Charlie Kaufman. 

It's been a while since either one of us had seen Eternal Sunshine through a more mature eye, and it's still as great as it ever was. We veer a little off track hammering our distain for Wes Anderson kitsch and why this is better, real life couple fights, and realize Kirsten Dunst also has an incredible performance that we overlooked in the past.

058: Why can't we pick our own colors? | Reservoir Dogs (1992)
01:01:12

It had been a while since either one of us had seen this film. Upon our recent re-watch we see the birth of Tarantino for what it is. Violence, long scenes, and pretty incredible characters.

057: Multi Pass | The Fifth Element (1997)
00:56:30

We had such a good time talking about this wild ride into the future.  Some of our points ranged from the intense cult like fan base, drama on the set, and drool about all the costumes.

056: To live and fry in L.A. | Totally Fucked Up (1993)
01:04:51

Told in 15 celluloid fragments examining gay alienated youth of LA in the 90s. 

I was eager to hear Jai's first time thoughts as a newcomer to his early work and I give my review as a longtime Araki lover. We discuss how times have changed in both the good and bad ways. It's such an important film almost 30 years later with the language of the West Coast and the birth of a new genre.

055: 'Cause I'm pissed off and the whole world owes me. | Freeway (1996)
00:53:08

This is one of those random films that you may have never heard of but it's definitely worth a watch.  Me and Mikey talk about how Reese was such a 90s bad girl and why we're dying to see her in another role like this soon. Part 'Little Red Riding Hood' and road film, it's a wild hilarious ride.

054: It's all happening! | Almost Famous (2000)
01:01:00

Wow, this was my first time seeing this film! 

While I'm late to the game, Jai has seen it many times. Listen to my hot takes as a first time viewer and why it took me 20 years to see it. The mystique of Penny Lane, the soundtrack, and why we wish we experienced the 70s are some of our many talking points.

While it's a departure from our usual films, this is one of my 2 favorite action films of the 90s. Me and Mikey compare their predictions of the future, Taco Bell, and dive into the real meaning of the 'three seashells".

So excited to dive into the 2000s with this monthly series. For the first episode me and Charles talk the early aughts classic, The Rules of Attraction. We talk the lure of college on screen but not in reality, the amazing story, and how we just can't get enough of Shannyn Sossamon.

01:28:06

Me and Mikey talk our trip to the theater to see this film when we were 15. Then we talk one of the best 90s teen rom-com house party films with the cast list that never ends. And why we're still looking for those 40 mins of deleted scenes all these years later...

01:23:22

For our actual Halloween episode we had to review this suuuper 90s version of the Michael Myers saga. 

There are so many aspects of this film we overlooked as teens. We get into the insane timeline of the series, why this Josh Hartnett film debut is really something, and how Jamie Lee Curtis will always be our original scream queen.

While we are all immense fans of the 90s tv show, we examined the story where it all started. From drama on the set to the complete campiness of the story, we get into it all. The 90s valley girl slang is unmatched in this one and we try to make sense of it all.

Mikey gives his high level thoughts as a horror movie aficionado and I talk about about much this film still freaks me out.

Featuring an all-star cast and pretty dark script me and Mikey break down the many character personalities, out of this world story, and what was up with Josh Hartnett's hair.

01:26:43

Described in the 90s as a teen "Fatal Attraction", that is definitely the perfect description. In a story that is just as believable as it is realistic, it's one of the early performances of Reese Witherspoon and Mark Wahlberg. We talk their careers after this point and the overall post-grungy Seattle vibe lurking in the mood of the flim.

This film is one of my teenage classics so hear it from my view and Jai as a first time viewer.  We get into the complete absurdity of the story, the incredible mid 90s LA fashion, and how no one does a soundtrack like Gregg Araki.

'When the Pawn' gives you a 'Jagged Little Pill'... | Favorite Women in 90s Rock
01:31:55

*Apologies for the wonky audio in the beginning 

 

We both could talk about music forever, and we kinda did. Enjoy this episode on some of our favorite albums and the women we looked up to and still do from the 90s rock scene.

019: What are you waiting for?! | I Know What You Did Last Summer (1997)
01:02:35

Upon watching this film 23 years later we've learned these characters are all pretty much TRASH people. This however doesn't stop us from breaking down the awesomely muted fashion, music, and the North Carolina mood across the whole film.

017: Nice welt, sweetie. | Scream (1996)
00:58:15

The blueprint by which all 90s slasher films were made. The amount of hours I spent watching this film in friends' basements and being scared when the phone rang. Yes, the landline. 

Me and Mikey are full on obsessed with Scream. We're equally obsessed with our Queen Drew Barrymore in one of the most riveting horror opening scenes ever. We talk it ALL.

It had been a while since both of us had seen this film. We look at it with a 2020 lens and see just how much things have changed, and what still remains the same.

013: Sounds Razor | Disturbing Behavior (1998)
01:00:55

This movie is one of my faves in the late 90s teen thriller genre. We break down the music and fashion among other things. Enjoy our deep dive of the behind the scenes mess and why there were so many versions of the film before release.

012: Chemicals man, they'll f*** you up. | SLC Punk (1998)
00:42:29

Dueling reviews keep things interesting. While we can agree that the fashion (that was dope) and music (legendary) are incredible,  we both saw this film in different ways. How well does this age over 20 years later? We talk about it.

011: I Need a Favor | Go (1999)
00:55:54

The rave scene of the late 90s was definitely something to experience. I have my friend Mikey with me on this episode to chat about the film we first saw in high school and what our rewatch 20 years later was like. 

Enjoy!

There are so many things about this film that I love. Specifically the 70s easy listening soundtrack that helped me through my study days.

006: Then I defy you, stars! | William Shakespeare's Romeo + Juliet (1996)
01:02:46

In 1996 the classic Shakespeare play, Romeo + Juliet was adapted for the "MTV Generation" by Baz Luhrmann and it totally worked. An unforgettable soundtrack, cast, and location really breathed new life into a story we know so well. 

We had a really exciting time talking about this one.
