Episode 90 – Vesper (2022)

Needs More Slime

Vesper is viscous, gooey, slipshod, and visceral. Ferny plants shoot lethal, glowing pink darts that burrow into you and turn into insects. Scavenging pilgrims build rubbish towers high into the sky. A floating orb holds the consciousness of a bedridden man, and a 13-year-old girl plays with plants to have some shot at survival. Yes, we enjoyed this one.

Episode 89 – Bodies Bodies Bodies (2022)

Our biggest piece of advice if you’re planning a hurricane party with your friends in a mansion for the weekend – Put. Away. The swords. We watched Bodies Bodies Bodies and talked about funny horror and killer parlor games. And also – what are people in their twenties like again??

Episode 85 – Clockwatchers (1997)

It’s 1997 and our queens Parker Posey, Toni Collete, and Lisa Kudrow are at the height of their powers playing temps trying to survive in a mind-numbing cubicle hellscape. Clockwatchers, another entry in our ongoing series on labor movies, feels prescient in its representation of disposable workers that sadly still holds true today. Bonus: we reminisce about a few of our own past jobs! There’s some, uh, pallet smashing.

Episode 84 – The Bob’s Burgers Movie (is Not Maverick) (2022)

For this episode we joined the Bob’s Burgers crew in their quest to pay one month of their business loan payment and solve a grisly murder. It’s sweet and gross and comforting and touching. The Belchers – they’re just like us!

Episode 83 – The Sleep Dealer (2008)

In Alex Rivera’s 2008 sci-fi drama Sleep Dealer, people are plugged into a global computer network via nodes on their bodies, work involves controlling your robot avatar in another country, and memories are sold to pay back student loans. It’s the near future!!

Episode 82 – The Humans (2021)

Hey, it’s Joe. I’m not used to writing these episode recaps and, well, we watched the 2021 movie The Humans (based on the 2015 play) and it was, uh, full of sad but also enduring humans.

Episode 78 – The Batman (2022)

In this house, we stan Robert Pattinson. Even when (especially when) he plays an angsty, brooding, eyeliner-wearing, journal-writing Bruce Wayne who probably listens to The Cure. 

The movie theater was packed when we got there and we were worried The Batman was sold out. Turns out, all the teenage girls and their moms were there for BTS Permission to Dance on Stage. They were positively giddy. Honestly, we’re happy for them.
