Episode 4: The Marx Brothers / Greg Sahadachny

cinemashamAndMovie_Marx

Greg Sahadachny (@mistergreggles) atones for his sins against classic comedy by watching not only one, but two Marx Brothers films — Duck Soup and A Night at the Opera. Along the way to redemption, we also discuss the Marx Brothers entire showbiz career from vaudeville to their final films together at United Artists, the history of cinematic comedy, perils of intellectualism, and the fate of modern cinematic funnymen like Jim Carrey and Adam Sandler. Later on, Will McKinley (@WillMcKinley) answers our call to the Old Movie Weirdo Hotline to discuss his childhood connection to the Marxes (and scrambled pornography).

Episode 3: The Godfather / Carlin Trammel

cinemashamAndMovie-godfather

Carlin Trammel (@nerdlunch) confesses his sins against cinema. My guest today runs the SHAME! gauntlet to discuss his resistance to watching the Godfather and how he overcame that barrier with a little help from Cinema Shame. We talk about the film’s cultural omnipresence, the state of the Godfather as a “man’s movie,” play the Shamely Feud and discuss the moral compass of Don Vito Corleone.

Episode 2: Fatal Attraction / Krissy Myers

cinemashameAndMovie_fatalattraction

Krissy Myers (@krissy_myers) and Jay (@007hertzrumble) discuss their shared Shame – Fatal Attraction – and contemplate the ways in which the film wrongs women, trades on peak Michael Douglas fame, and undermines its greatest asset (crazy Glenn Close) for the sake of ticket sales. Will McKinley drops in courtesy of the Old Movie Weirdo hotline to offer his hot take on Fatal Attraction and recommend a thematically-related classic film that’s more deserving of your time. In the scorned women revenge genre, Fatal Attraction may have moved the bar, but it also broke the mold.
