Second Breakfast Viewer Mailbag XXXIII

In today’s Mailbag, Phil and Andy talk about why we (either we two in particular, or America in general) keep paying for loud, empty movies rather than smaller, smarter fare, and what role we think gender should play in casting. We’ve got a question from family, and a question from someone who CLEARLY listens to our podcasts religiously. (We appreciate it!)

Project Melway XXVIII – The Million Dollar Hotel

Magical Realism Vol. 1

Today on Second Breakfast, Andy and Phil discuss movies that are almost completely realistic, but one small thing isn’t. We discuss Ruby Sparks, Stranger Than Fiction, Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind, and even Nolan’s Batman trilogy. It’s the start of what will likely be a much longer conversation. Climb aboard with us at the start!

Second Breakfast – Mud (SPOILERS)

On today’s Second Breakfast, Phil and Andy talk about the fabulous new Matthew McConaughey movie, “Mud.” It’s a great movie, directed and acted superbly. And we talk about it for a really long time. BUT, after the first few minutes (don’t worry, we warn you) we talk spoilers. You have been warned.
