“You’re going to do it because you’re an actor and that’s what you do. Just like the director does what he does and the writer and the script girl and the guy who claps the slate. You’re gonna do it because the picture has worth! And you have worth if you serve the picture and you’re never gonna forget that again. -Eddie Mannix (Hail, Caesar!)
This week on the Podcast we discuss: Hail, Caesar!(2:11-41:15), I Remember You(41:50-48:48), Princess Cyd(49:08-59:07), 3:10 to Yuma(59:19-1:31:24), Princess Mononoke(1:31:57-1:48:35), Mission: Impossible: Fallout(1:48:37-2:21:54), Master and Commander: The Far Side of the World(2:21:58-2:35:24), and Sharp Objects(2:35:27-2:41:19)
The classic theme this week was Historical Films. This didn’t tie into anything specific coming out, but was a fun chance to revisit and illuminate some blindspots before the fall and winter award season rush. As always the podcast is filled with SPOILERS, so if you don’t want to ruin a specific movie refer to the time stamps included for that very reason. Enjoy the episode and look for which film we hand out the award for best use of Wolf Blitzer in a film to!

Hail, Caesar! Corrections: We say that Alden Ehrenreich’s character Hobie Doyle has a love interest named Carla, we were wrong! Her name is Carlotta Valdez in the movie and her real name is Veronica Osorio. She also has a limited appearance in Steven Soderbergh’s Mosaic and is a main character in the short film Manic Pixie Prostitute. We also each mispronounced Ralph Fiennes name differently.
