264: Oscar Predictions by Oscar (and Matt)

 
 

On a rare episode in which we actually recorded under the same roof (on the same microphone, no less!), we get down to business with Academy Awards talk. We pontificate and prognosticate as we reveal our individual predictions in all of the “major” categories and take the time to curate our “fantasy” scenarios of who we’d personally love to see nominated.

262: Oscar & Matt's Top 10s of 2018

 
 

Dearest WLM family, it’s time for our favorite podcast of the year and, at the risk of being self-congratulatory, we think it’s one of our best episodes ever! It’s epic without being long-winded. There’s list overlap without complete crossover. There’s disagreement without dissent. There’s even a brief detour into our own personal lists of 2018 missed-movie-shame. It’s a good one.
Happy New Year, everybody. We’ve got big plans for 2019 and couldn’t be more excited to have you with us!

260: Our 8th Anniversary and Last Podcast of 2018 Featuring THE FAVOURITE, SHOPLIFTERS, and ROMA!

 
 

On the occasion of the 8th anniversary of We Like Movies as well as our final “contemporary” podcast of 2018, we respectively submit a conversation about three of the most acclaimed films of the year, featuring a preamble with some hot-nom-talk.
It’s awards season, WLM fam. Catch the fever!

The episode breaks down, as follows:

THE FAVOURITE - 00:19:15
SHOPLIFTERS - 00:31:33
ROMA - 00:41:25

258: AFI #72 - THE SHAWSHANK REDEMPTION (1994)

 
 

“I find I'm so excited, I can barely sit still or hold a thought in my head. I think it's the excitement only a free man can feel, a free man at the start of a long journey whose conclusion is uncertain. I hope I can make it across the border. I hope to see my friend and shake his hand. I hope the Pacific is as blue as it has been in my dreams. I hope.”

257: Post-Thanksgiving Catch-up w/ WIDOWS, GREEN BOOK, and CREED II

 
 

It’s the holiday season… turkeys are being eaten, top 10 lists are being constructed, awards have begun to be handed out in critics groups, and we’re trying to keep up with it all! Join us as we dive head-first into a catch-up pod that’s brimming over with content like so much Thanksgiving leftovers:

THE OLD MAN AND THE GUN - 00:05:45
FANTASTIC BEASTS: THE CRIMES OF GRINDELWALD - 00:9:47
WIDOWS - 00:15:52
GREEN BOOK - 00:30:35
CREED II - 00:41:05

256: AFI #73 - BUTCH CASSIDY AND THE SUNDANCE KID (1969)

 
 

In honor of the passing of screenwriting luminary William Goldman we decided to move this episode up in our schedule to pay tribute to one of the most talented scribes ever to sire a slugline.

And, in case you missed it a couple weeks back, consider checking out our episode dedicated to All the President’s Men- Goldman’s other, legendary Oscar-winning screenplay.

254: "Back to the Now" w/ A STAR IS BORN, FIRST MAN, and BAD TIMES AT THE EL ROYALE

 
 

We’ve spent the last couple of months focusing on some of our different “spinoff” series… Matt was out of the country for a bit… and we had to work out some technical glitches as we get all of our domain materials consolidated under one roof…
But [!], now we’re back, jazzed about awards season, and ready to talk about the here, the now, and what’s going on at your local cineplex. Let’s get contemporary, shall we?
00:12:27 - A STAR IS BORN
00:36:36 - FIRST MAN
00:52:10 - BAD TIMES AT THE EL ROYALE

248: The MISSION: IMPOSSIBLE - FALLOUT Praise-a-thon

 
 

The Mission: Impossible film series is without peer or equal in its unprecedented ability to improve with each subsequent installment since J.J. Abrams’ soft reboot three films ago. As such, it should come as no surprise that MISSION: IMPOSSIBLE – FALLOUT, the 6th entry in this 22 year old franchise is not only quite possibly the creative peak of the series but also one of the greatest action films in recent memory.

Join us as we work our way through all 5 previous installments before leaping headfirst into a gushfest about Christopher McQuarrie’s summertime gift to cineplexes, MISSION: IMPOSSIBLE – FALLOUT. We talk about it ALL and spoil pretty much everything so be forewarned!
