Episode 26: Bad@Love and St. Paul Filmcast Watch “The Heiress”

We attempt to put on our film critics caps and watch the 1949 classic, “The Heiress” with actual film buff, Nick from St. Paul Filmcast.

Movie Moral to the Story: Based on this movie and countless other movies, it is easier to love a pretty person than and ugly person.

Our Moral to the Story: Awkward can be beautiful.

Other Fun Topics Discussed:

  • Get to Know Us: What moving setting would we live in?
  • Nick would definitely not live in the DC Universe. He might choose living in Middle Earth but we are all unclear as to whether they have indoor plumbing.
  • Aragorn is like 150!
  • More on Lord of the Rings: Mallory lost most her Elvish language skills. I guess it is true if you don’t use it, you lose it.
  • Tamu said she would live in a Nora Ephron movie, but really she meant Nancy Meyers. Who wouldn’t want to live in Meryl Streep’s “It’s Complicated” house?
  • Mallory would live in a musical.
  • None of us opted for living in a period piece or the Marvel Universe. Well, maybe Wakanda.
  • Tamu notices Montgomery Clift’s bumper curls.
  • Catherine’s dad was a really good doctor and gave himself a spot on diagnosis and prognosis with just a stethoscope!
  • Olivia de Havilland and her sister Joan Fontaine had a wicked sibling rivalry.
  • Move over Spinster, there’s a new word in town: Thornback – an unmarried woman over age 26.
  • Nick actually READ Game of Thrones.
  • Nick explains the tricks of back and white movies.
  • Turns out Mallory has an ally in the Love Actually debate. Too bad Nick missed that episode.
  • Morris’ unromantic song, “Plaisir d’amour. Lyrics are: The joy of love lasts but a moment. The pain of love lasts all the life long. SWOON!
  • Copyright Infringement: Elvis probs stole the melody of “Can’t Help Falling in Love with You” from that awesome French “love” song.
  • #WePodcastLikeThis: It was late, but we remembered.

Podcast Shout Out:

Nick Palodichuk is not just a knowledgeable film dude, lover of comics, and podcast host. He is also a talent artist! Check out his graphic novel, The Green Way – Vol. 1. Volumes 2 and 3 will be out in the fall.

Episode 15: Laura Linney, Oh How Could You Do That?!

There have been heated discussions between Tamu & Mallory about the holiday movie, Love Actually and whether it is actually problematic. Luckily when Jim and Ben were in town, they graciously agreed throw their hats into the ring regarding this “controversial” holiday film.

  • Sometimes love is about forgiveness.

  • Question NOT up for Debate:  No one likes that necklace.
  • Love Actually is about love in all its forms.
  • Keira Knightley’s stalker.
  • Jim became a convert to Love Actually late in life.

Episode 3: I Choo-Choo-Choose You

In this week’s episode, Tamu & Mallory watch each other’s favorite teen movies, Ever After: A Cinderella Story and Pretty in Pink.

If you haven’t guessed, Ever After was Mallory’s jam back in the day; so much so, she wrote an essay about it in the 7th grade. She felt more closely aligned to the Cinderella character, however, much to her chagrin, Tamu found Mallory’s tendencies to be more Prince leaning…she was not pleased. Tamu was annoyed with the end of the movie because Game of Thrones training has taught her that you must kill your enemies so they don’t come back for revenge; yet, The Baroness lives.

Meanwhile, Mallory had some serious opinions about Tamu’s choice, Pretty in Pink; mainly that Molly Ringwald’s character settled.

Both ladies learn that prom is the most important event in the known universe.

Moral to the Story: A relationship doesn’t start in 5 days, it takes a least 6 or 7 days.

Other Fun Topics Discussed:

  • Tamu saw Black Panther
  • Yertle the Turtle
  • Sex and the City stole the shoe scene proposal from Ever After
  • Other 2000s movies Mallory needs to watch
  • Love Actually and Laura Linney’s choice
  • Mallory LOVES Pride and Prejudice 2005
  • Duties: sacrificing your wants/needs for others
  • 80s movies are problematic AF
  • Realistic stats about High School romance (it ain’t pretty)
  • Tamu equates relationships to Mary J. Blige’s song, Seven Days

Apologies: First there were sound issues. It will be better next time. Second, Tamu tries and fails doing an Australian accent…sorry, Australia.
