POD'S NOT DEAD EP. 2 - SAVING CHRISTMAS

Hey WLTW fans!

Liz Lerner and Rick Kelley are back for our second episode of our occasional podcast, POD'S NOT DEAD. We talk about movies made for Christians, by Christians, and whether they work as "movies." Spoiler alert, so far... 0 for 2.

You can find our previous episode on this very feed back in August of 2017!

Peter Moran
KING KONG (2005)

We Love to Watch... 'twas beauty killed the beast. Beauty-ful bullets

Ann Darrow is an actress, a performer, someone who knows how to put on a show. King Kong is a 25 foot gorilla who loves to smash dinosaurs. Opposites attract in this wacky 2005 remake of the classic romantic comedy, King Kong.

For Love & Monsters Month, we get to talk about a different kind of love, one that doesn't necessarily fit neatly into any specific box.

You can find We Love to Watch on iTunes, Stitcher, TuneIn, or in the eyes of your lover.

Peter Moran
BRAM STOKER'S DRACULA

We Love to Watch 

LOVE AND MONSTERS month flaps its little wings, and flies along with 1992's Bram Stoker's Dracula.

We're joined by Ethan Warren, who knows a little bit about making a movie with Keanu Reeves, expect for the part about Keanu Reeves (he made a movie is what we're saying).

You can find Ethan's work at westofher.com and ethanrawarren.com. You find us on ITunes, Stitcher, Google Play, defying death itself to seek revenge, and TuneIn.

Peter Moran
THE SHAPE OF WATER

We Love to Watch.... y'know. You know. 

Aaron & Pete kick off Love & Monsters month with Guillermo Del Toro's romance-monster-drama about a woman who feels incomplete, and the "monster" who just may help with that.

You can find us on iTunes, Stitcher TuneIn, but if this bathroom is a leakin' a massive amount of water, don't you go and bother.

Peter Moran
LEGEND (Director's Cut)

We Love to Watch full-frontal Tim Curry!

Ridley Scott followed up the one-two punch of Alien and Blade Runner with 1986's Legend. And we're following up the one-two punch of our last two episodes with another episode, *about* the movie Legend. Coincidence?

We're covering the much improved Director's Cut, but even if you've never seen that version before, we actually do our job, and tell you what's different!

You can find us on ITunes, Stitcher, disobeying the rules of the forest, and TuneIn.

Peter Moran
LABYRINTH

We Love to Watch

David Bowie, Jim Henson, Terry Jones, George Lucas, Elaine May all worked on a fucking movie, and that fucking movie is Labyrinth.

The story of a girl taking responsibility and learning a lesson, all set in a fantasy world built out of Jim Henson's imagination. Full of illusions, tricks, jokes - not to mention great puppetry - this movie has something for kids of all ages.

THE NEVERENDING STORY 1 / THE NEVERENDING STORY 2

We Love to Watch horses drown in sadness... no, not Bojack Horseman!

It's our second week of 80s fantasy month! We decided to pour you a shot and chaser, as we talk about The NeverEnding Story, and, as briefly as we can, its sequel.

We're joined by our own luck dragon, Carrie N., as we go through the magical world of Fantasia and the less magical world of also Fantasia, but shitty looking.

You can fine Carrie's work at:

And you can find us on ITunes, Stitcher, seeing the reflection of our audience in a mirror, and TuneIn.

THE BLACK CAULDRON

We Love to Watch White Knighting a Pig! 

Disney's 25th Animated Feature almost ruined the company. Overbudget, delayed multiple times, abandoned by multiple directors, hampered by producer oversight, and, perhaps worst of all, hemmed in by Disney's apprehension to sequels forcing a lot of content in a small movie. All of that makes for a trouble production, but does that make for a troubled movie? Aaron & Pete decide if The Black Cauldron is worth a shot for fans nostalgic of Disney.

You can find We Love to Watch on Stitcher, Tunein, ITunes, and deep within the murky waters of a prophetic pig's trough.

Peter Moran
THE BEST MOVIES OF 2016!

We Love to Watch... the best movies from last year!

While all your fat cat critics friends get 'press passes" to watch new movies, the Watchboys finally caught up with the old ones!

Join us, and guest Joseph J. Finn, as we count down the best movies of 2016.

Peter Moran
THE LONG KISS GOODNIGHT

We Love to Watch Geena Davis get a leading roll, which is unfortunately rare as women over 40 are phased out of Hollywood.

We're giving 2017 and our Very Shane Black Christmas Month the long kiss goodnight, by talking about a little movie called, Cube 2: Hypercube*

*This is a lie. It is The Long Kiss Goodnight. We're working on our honesty for our New Year's Resolution, and we're very sorry to end the year with a blatant falsehood.

You can find us on ITunes, and in the confessional.

Peter Moran
LETHAL WEAPON

We Love to Watch this movie in 2004, preferably!

Two podcasters. Aaron carries a microphone. Peter is one. He's the only podcaster on ITunes registered as a LETHAL TALKER.

We're keeping on the Shane Black Express with a stop at his first big movie, Lethal Weapon. Joining us, is writer/director Zach Grooten.

You can watch Zach's film Subletting on Vimeo (vimeo.com/235346046), and you can find us on ITunes, Stitcher, chained to a radiator, and Google Play.

KISS KISS BANG BANG

We Love to Watch what are we doing here, like a subtitle or something? Seems like more trouble than it's worth.

A Very Shane Black Christmas rolls on with KISS KISS BANG BANG, Black's triumphant come back after the financial failure of A LONG KISS GOODNIGHT. We really didn't do this month in the right order at all, did we?

Part Hollywood satire, part neo-noir, part buddy comedy, and with Shane Black in the director's chair, this is the writer/director at his most pure. Is that a good or a bad thing?  

You can find us on iTunes, Stitcher, TuneIn, and playing in your head as a self-conscious narrator.

IRON MAN 3

We Love to Watch white-washing be redeemed!

Oh, the weather outside is frightful/

But Shane Black's movies are delightful /

And since, why the fuck not? /

It's A Very Merry Shane Black Christmas on We Love To Watch!

We're kicking it off with Iron Man 3, and joined by Land of the Nerd's Douglas Laman.

If you like the MCU, buckle up, because we'll probably never talk about it again!

You can find Doug's writing at landofthenerds.blogspot.com

You can find us on Stitcher, Soundcloud, ITunes, TuneIn, by going to our home address that we taunted the villain with, or Google Play.

LAND OF THE DEAD

We love to Watch... Aaron, you alright buddy?

Aaron & Pete conclude our tribute month to the late great George A. Romero with Land of the Dead. Just the two watchboys this week, so we might better protect our sweet precious angel Land of the Dead. It really tries so hard, and you just have to give it a chance.

You can find us on iTunes, Stitcher, TuneIn, or just look at the fireworks up in the sky.

DAY OF THE DEAD

We Love to Watch... the jocks vs. the nerds in this laugh-a-minute 80s comedy!

Some days are Thursday. Sometimes, Monday. Others, the Days of our Lives. Very rarely, you can be In Between Days.

But there's only one, DAY OF THE DEAD. Thankfully, there's two Koski brothers, Dustin and Adam and we got 'em both to talk about George Romero's third entry in his dead series.

Make sure and check out the Koski's new podcast, The Vanishing Point, on ITunes.

And you can find more We Love to Watch episodes on ITunes, Google Play, Stitcher, Soundcloud, doing scientifically dubious experiments on corpses, and TuneIn.

DAWN OF THE DEAD

When there's no more room on the radio, the dead will start a podcast.

Our Romero month continues with Dawn of the Dead, the movie that proves that sometimes it's best to hit the snooze button first thing in the morning (*canned studio laughter*)

We're joined by special guest star, Salim Garami, who knows what happens when it's truly morning in America....for zombies. (*light studio chuckles*)

So grab your Mall Talk game and join us! (*studio audience asks to be moved to Fallon*)

You can check out Salim's great work and writing at: 

 

You can find us on ITunes, Stitcher, Google Play, Soundcloud, escaping bloody mayhem on a helicopter, and TuneIn.

NIGHT OF THE LIVING DEAD

We Love to Watch Aaron succumb to an infection caused by a mysterious bite...

A thing came from the treeline. At first we thought it was just some drunk who got lost in the backwoods, so we tried not to look. But he came right for us. Right for us. And he got Aaron. Right on his arm. We managed to get away - the guy was slow, clumsy - but Aaron's not responding. So it looks like Marcus Jones of Crushed Celluloid/Jean-Pod Van Damme is going to have to step up and take control.

This week, We Love to Watch, will talk NIGHT OF THE LIVING DEAD, one of the most important horror movies of all time, and the first entry in our George A. Romero tribute month.

We're joined by the multi-talented Ethan Warren - author, playwright, filmmaker, and all-around Good Boy.

You can find us on Stitcher, TuneIn, Soundcloud, or if you hold the bunny ears juuuust right on an old battered television

DECEMBER POLL: Shane Black Christmas Vs. Christmas Horror

For our second public poll on We Love to Watch, we're reaching out to you to determine the fate of our December.

We've got two great ideas, but we want YOU to tell us what you want to watch. There's a twist though: this time, we'll provide what the options are, so you can make your most informed decision. 

For our first option, Aaron and Pete will delve deeper into the Christmas Horror canon, and come up with two international versions of a killer Christmas.

Sick of horror? Sick of killer Santas? Well, then Shane Black, famous-Christmas lover, will provide our alternate option. 

 


Option 1: Christmas Horror, Vol. 2

Rare Exports: A Christmas Tale

Christmas Evil

Santa's Slay

Sint


VS.



Option 2: A Very Shane Black Christmas

Lethal Weapon

Iron Man 3

The Long Kiss Goodnight

Kiss Kiss Bang Bang
