Ep. 15 - Junebug

December 11, 2017

JunebugPROMO.jpg

Even though this may be one of the smaller films selected for this show, we think JUNEBUG has a lot to offer our listeners during the holiday season. Mainly how one would handle the unstoppable enthusiasm of a pregnant Amy Adams. That particular pleasure was shared with our guest Allison of NOT YOUR LITTLE LADY, who brings her own experiences as a lady of the South to this film about a coastal elite meeting her partner's family of North Carolina country bumpkins. Along the way your own hosts, coastal elite Dave and country bumpkin Mike, point fingers and do everything in their power to not understand the other. Did I mention that we thankfully have a great guest?!

Ep. 14 - About Schmidt

December 5, 2017

AboutSchmidtPROMO.jpg

We continue our long dreadful march to Christmas with another spirited pick-me-up of a family film in ABOUT SCHMIDT. This Alexander Payne flick stars Jack Nicholson as a man traveling across the country to stop his daughter's wedding to a "nincompoop" who bears a striking resemblance to one of our beloved co-hosts. This was pointed out by our spirited and charming guest TIM COSTA of FIRST TIME WATCHERS who finds himself at a loss on what to do when confronted with a nude Kathy Bates in a hot tub. As usual, your hosts Dave and Mike know exactly what to do and you will too once you listen to the latest episode of THE GRAND GESTURE!

Ep. 13 - Titanic

December 2, 2017

TitanicPROMO.jpg

For our lucky number 13 episode we decide that there's absolutely nothing that can go wrong by taking a trip on TITANIC and to do so we bring in an admitted fan of this film (which is rare on the internet) Peter of PODSTALGIC to discuss if this is The Ultimate Grand Gesture movie and if Leonardo Dicaprio's skills as an alleged thief are more impressive than Kate Winslet's axe wielding prowess. Find out all of this and the best place to have sex on a sinking ship in our latest episode of THE GRAND GESTURE!

Ep. 12 - Elf

November 30, 2017

ElfPROMO.jpg

For our first ever Christmas episode we declare our guest WILLIAM LINDUS of the MOVIE BEARS PODCAST to be our very own Christmas movie expert. And although he had not been previously made aware that he would be given this position he does a great job discussing the romantic merits of 2003's much beloved holiday movie ELF starring Will Ferrell. Can creeping up on someone as they shower, even if its just to sing along, be considered a Meet Cute? How about some shopping advice for old dad by selecting for him a nice negligee? Let us relieve some of your holiday stress by answering your burning questions of the season on our latest episode!

Ep. 11 - Wonder Boys

November 28, 2017

WonderBoysPROMO.jpg

For a movie on books we had to bring on a guest who has actually read one of those damn things. Megan from the podcast Oh No! Lit Class joins us to discuss the Curtis Hanson film adaptation of the Michael Chabon novel WONDER BOYS. Michael Douglas stars as the ultimate one hit wonder who can't move on, even when his lover who is married to his boss (!) tells him that she is pregnant and that it may be time for them to become Facebook official. Can the great Frances McDormand give this man, and the co-hosts of this "romcom" podcast the kick in the pants we all need? Find out pretty quickly by hitting that play button and then deal with crushing disappointment.

Ep. 10 - Forgetting Sarah Marshall

November 4, 2017

ForgettingSarahMarshallPROMO.jpg

On this episode we take a trip to get over our previous episodes of love, longing, and heartache with Alyssa of the Hindsight Movie Podcast. Unfortunately for her this podcast trip includes Jason Segal in the nude (usually crying), Mr. Segal having sex (while almost crying), and taking in the sights (while almost dying). Fortunately for you the listener, we don't do any of those things, and discuss the idea of a permanent vacation lifestyle, worst music associated with our own real life romances (Jared Leto tops the Dracula musical easily), and how Bill Hader is the perfect man (this mostly comes from Mike).

Ep. 09 - The Lobster

October 30, 2017

TheLobsterPROMO.jpg

This year for Halloween we decide to dress up as THE LOBSTER! And joining us for the most depressing costume party ever is Jess from JOY SANDWICH (of course)! Not only do we discuss which animal would we like to be if given the chance to fail so spectacularly at finding true love, but also how far we would go for love? Lose an eye? A hand to a toaster? Find out all this and many thing you do not want to know as our hosts Dave and Mike brave a dystopian world where Colin Farrell can not find a companion.

Ep. 08 - Blue Jay

October 26, 2017

BlueJayPROMO.jpg

For our episode on BLUE JAY we stay away from old acquaintances, as we will learn from this film that it can only lead to tears and awkward attempts to rap, so we welcome new guest Kay from THE SERIOUSLY GREY'S PODCAST to discuss this small, little gem of a romance starring Mark Duplass and Our Beloved Sarah Paulson.

Were you aware of our love for The Great Sarah Paulson? NO? Then clearly you have not hit that Play button yet. How. Dare. You.

Ep. 07 - Wonder Woman

October 14, 2017

PromoWONDERWOMAN.jpg

On this episode we travel to Paradise Island to ogle a naked Chris Pine... and that's pretty much all we got on one of the biggest box-office and criticially successful films of the year in WONDER WOMAN. Thankfully guest SANDY DEVITO of MOVIEJAWN provides a little more than that (though what could be more important than Chris Pine in the nude?) as we discuss why 2017 was the perfect time for the first feature film adaptation of this particular comic book superhero as compared to the thousands of others hitting theaters every week. From Gal Gadot's mixture of charm and badassery to Patty Jenkins' confident direction of a bigger than life god of decency meeting average, decent people in a bigger than life situation, all the way to Chris Pine's naked body being nude THIS FILM HAS IT ALL.

And we have a podcast on it.

Ep. 06 - The Age of Adaline

October 13, 2017

AgeOfAdalinePROMO.pngOn this episode we seek perfection with JD Duran of Insession Film and if we can't deliver on that promise, well, Blake Lively can. Unfortunately for her, the perfection of staying the same age in THE AGE OF ADALINE puts a cramp in her love life with the inability to make any lifelong committments for fear of the danger it brings to herself and her loved ones. We debate the pros and cons of awkward family dinners when one has had the good fortune of dating both Harrison Ford and his follicly gifted son and as always with THE GRAND GESTURE, the creep factor when one pursues THE one.
