Clueless

Exactly how director Amy Heckerling managed to bottle 90s teen essence into a cult classic? Check. Gay representation without being the butt of the joke, in the 90s? CHECK. Also, the pair reminisce over Brittany Murphy's unique talent and weigh in on the "controversial" pseudo stepsibling love story. So tune in — this episode is one for the yearbook.

The Harry Potter-thon
3084
This week on HBO Max Movie Club, host Matt Rogers decided that, in honor of the holiday season, he was going to take it upon himself to rewatch the entire Harry Potter film series. You know, for the viewers! And with those viewers in mind, he invited comedy writer and podcaster Alise Morales to help give you the high-quality HP content you deserve! Together, they sprint through all their favorite characters (why does Alise have such a soft spot for Ron?), iconic lines (93% are Year One Hermione, tbh), and costume design (can we talk about how ahead of its time this men’s fashion was!?). And, like with any great art, with praise comes critique! Like, does the leadership not care about just how unsafe Hogwarts is? Buckle into your Ford Anglias, this one’s a wild ride. You can watch all eight of the Harry Potter films on HBO Max through January 21st, 2022! Learn more about your ad-choices at https://www.iheartpodcastnetwork.com

Dun-dun-dun-DUNE!
2129
For this week’s installment of HBO Max Movie Club, host Matt Rogers attended a screening of the new Dune with his good friend and SNL writer Sudi Green... and they 👏 had👏 a 👏blast. From Dune’s iconic Hans Zimmer score to a big Jesus storyline, these two discuss every nook and cranny of the fantasy novel-turned-film-turned-film-again. In fact, they had so much fun watching the film in a real-life theater, that they just might move into one (not really—but they were definitely reminded of how great a “Big Adventure Book” on the big screen can be). They also share their best viewing experience advice by answering some burning questions: Do you need to read the book in order to “get” the film? Should you see the movie while dead-ass sober? Is the fear of phallic worms a prohibitive condition for watching? Give a listen to find out. Dune is available in theaters and on HBO Max, in the US only, for 31 days from theatrical release. You can catch Dune (1984) on HBO via HBO Max until 11/30/21 and Lord of the Rings: The Fellowship of the Ring, The Two Towers, and The Return of the King on HBO Max until 12/31/2021.

Jurassic Park (sponsored by Malignant)
2576
This week on the HBO Max Movie Club, host Matt Rogers tackles scary movies, including the upcoming HBO Max film Malignant!

They even dive into the science behind the science fiction of it all...uncovering how Jurassic Park is actually a trans narrative.  Malignant is available in theaters and on HBO Max, in the US only, for 31 days from theatrical release, and you can watch Jurassic Park, The Lost World: Jurassic Park, and Jurassic Park III on HBO via HBO Max until 1/31/23 Learn more about your ad-choices at https://www.iheartpodcastnetwork.com
