21. The Princess Bride (1986) with Kate Wallinga

You know the story and its lines: "As you wish," "My name is Inigo Montoya, you killed my father. Prepare to die." But I would bet you don't look at The Princess Bride the same way as this week's guest, Kate Wallinga. Listen as Kate and Rafe dig into this classic fairy tale movie, discuss being introduced to movies via network television, and consider that a strong female figure doesn't always mean a feminist character.

20. A Clockwork Orange (1971) with Johanna from Fresh Hell

Most people know some of the iconic images from Stanley Kubrick's A Clockwork Orange, but how many people have actually seen the film? This week Rafe and Johanna from the Fresh Hell podcast dive into the movie to talk about aspects both familiar and foreign for those who only know those iconic shots. We discuss how the violence and depiction of women make the film rather unfriendly for a female audience, draw parallels between the film's Ludovico technique and contemporary programs like "Pray Away the Gay," and try to determine just what Kubrick was trying to say with this disturbing, yet masterful, picture.

19. Midnight Run (1988) with Aram Martinez

We've previously looked at Robert De Niro in The Mission, but most people think of De Niro as a tough guy, playing gangsters and brutes. Midnight Run was the movie that really changed that for the actor, opening the door into the world of comedy. This week Rafe looks at the '80s action-comedy, brought to the show by comedian/actor Aram Martinez, and Rafe may never quite look at De Niro the same way again.

18. The Rules of Attraction (2002) with Sean Abraham Preston

When The Rules of Attraction hit theaters in 2002, it was branded as a teen comedy, no doubt to capitalize on the success of stars like James Van Der Beek and Jessica Biel. The marketing couldn't have been more wrong. This is a dark film, but one that guest Sean Abraham Preston feels like not enough people have seen. We talk about why such a dark movie appealed to Sean, the nihilistic world of Bret Easton Ellis, and creating a life in Hollywood in this episode.

17. Rashomon (1950) with Nick Irvine

We go back to the far past in Japan for this week's pick, Akira Kurosawa's Rashomon. The movie explores a sequence of events from different perspectives and really plays with the power of the unreliable narrator and the concept of "truth" in a way contemporary audiences may not be used to. Don't let that dissuade you from seeing the movie, however. It's a classic that is completely worth your time, as is our conversation about it.

16. The Fifth Element (1997) with D.E. Medus

For a blockbuster film, The Fifth Element provides a surprising amount of jumping off points for discussion. Join Rafe and guest D.E. Medus as they discuss what it means for this film to be "another Bruce Willis movie," complain about spoilers in trailers, debate whether Leeloo is an empowering female figure, and determine what happened to Chris Tucker as he's faded from the screen.

15. Scott Pilgrim vs the World (2015) with Mike from Talk’n Pops

At first glance, Scott Pilgrim vs the World is a high octane film that pays tribute to video games and comic books in a near ADD presentation. Look at bit deeper, however, and you'll find some astute observations about love and the fragile nature of relationships. Rafe dives in deep this week with guest Mike from Talk'n Pops as they talk about collecting Funko Pops, dating, becoming the villain, and hipster culture.

14. The Bishop’s Wife (1947) with Laura Uber

You know Miracle on 34th Street, or A Christmas Carol, or A Christmas Story, but somehow The Bishop's Wife is a holiday movie that has disappeared from the cultural lexicon despite its holiday content and multiple Oscar nominations. This week Rafe talks with guest Laura Uber about why this Cary Grant classic should not be forgotten, how hard it is not to compare it to another movie featuring a visiting angel, It's a Wonderful Life, (and why this movie might be better), and a bit of what life is like for those who choose to talk the path of Santa Claus. Merry Christmas everybody!

13. Leviathan (1989) with James Jackson

The late '90s saw one of the frequent waves of similarly conceived film projects, this time tackling supernatural threats in the underwater world: The Abyss, DeepStar Six, and this week's film Leviathan (not to be confused with the 2014 fishing village drama of the same name). How does Leviathan stack up against the other underwater threats of 1989? Why is it so hard for critics and fans to describe this film without referencing other movies? And how does Rafe deal with admitting he didn't like a movie very much?

12. SLC Punk! (1998) with Jono Uber

This week brings another new movie that Rafe was not aware of before this podcast: SLC Punk!, which stars Matthew Lillard and Micahel A. Goorjian as a pair of punk rockers in Salt Lake City at a turning point in their life. While discussing the movie Rafe and guest Jono Uber reminisce about working in movie theaters, speculate what kinds of lengths their sons will have to go through to pull one over on them, and consider just what it meant/means to be "punk".
