The Third Act Podcast – Episode 72

Episode 72

On the seventy-second episode of THE THIRD ACT PODCAST, the crew rings in the new year by reviewing a couple of high profile prestige films. The Third Act crew is joined by Vince Ochoa for these reviews, but you will come to know him as "Vinny from the OC." First film up for review is David O. Russel's latest Jennifer Lawrence vehicle, JOY. Finally, we review Quentin Tarantino's latest opus, THE HATEFUL EIGHT, and the 70mm roadshow experience. Will O. Russel rebound in Christian's eyes after American Hustle? Can Jericho really make a convincing argument that Tarantino hasn't made a good film since 1997? Should Richard Gere play every role in every film always? Answers to these questions and more, so nail the door shut and settle in for The Third Act Podcast.

The Third Act Podcast – Bonus Episode 17

Bonus Episode 17

On this bonus episode of THE THIRD ACT PODCAST, two-thirds of the crew chime in from an unnamed country to start an unnamed conflict about the Netflix original film, BEASTS OF NO NATION. Cary Fukunaga infuses a lot of style and Idris Elba is a commanding screen presence, but Jericho and Christian can find little else to agree on. There are a couple of failed attempts to lighten the mood while discussing this heavy and serious film, but there is still a search to find a noteworthy dance scene. Whether you think Agu's story is brought to life as a brilliantly realized experience or a failed attempt to follow in the footsteps of its obvious inspirations, enjoy this discussion and pick a side.

The Third Act Podcast – Bonus Episode 18

Bonus Episode 18

A long time ago on a bonus episode of THE THIRD ACT PODCAST... The crew finally gathers in the new year to discuss the seventh installment in the storied space opera franchise, STAR WARS: EPISODE VII: THE FORCE AWAKENS. Two-thirds of the panel are not die hard Star Wars fans and mostly think of the series as a relic of their youth. Rather than endlessly nitpick or speculate have a SPOILER filled discussion featuring general impressions of the film, this episode features Jar Jar defenders, verbal listicles, and the triumphant return of the DEX'S QUICK PICKS segment so you can hear your favorite 4 year old podcaster wax poetic on all things Force related.

Episode 71

On the seventy-first episode of THE THIRD ACT PODCAST, the crew celebrates the Flicksmas season once again! Three films are up for review this episode- an Irish immigrant drama featuring a buzzed-about performance from Saoirse Ronan, BROOKLYN, a bloody, impressionistic Shakespeare adaptation, MACBETH, and the journalism film about uncovering the Catholic church sex abuse scandal, SPOTLIGHT. For our MERRY FLICKSMAS segment we exchange gifts with the hosts of THE FLICKSATION PODCAST and discuss nudity, growing up impoverished in India, and Nirvana. We also debut a new ratings scale based on dancing dildos. Merry Flicksmas, everyone!

The Third Act Podcast – Episode 70

Episode 70

On the seventieth episode of THE THIRD ACT PODCAST, the crew serves up an extra large, Thanksgiving hangover jumbo episode with three indie films up for review. The first is Rick Alverson's somewhat meta(?) anti-comedy about a stand up comedian, ENTERTAINMENT. There's also a review of NASTY BABY, which is at least partially a commentary on modern narrative structure. Finally, there's a spoiler-filled discussion for the film in which Brie Larson is trapped with her kid in ROOM. For the Auteurography segment, the crew discusses Pier Paolo Pasolini's penultimate film and trilogy capper, ARABIAN NIGHTS. Christian and Armando also heap tons of praise onto the latest Rocky flick, CREED, much to Jericho's chagrin. Enjoy!

Episode 69

On the sixty-ninth episode of THE THIRD ACT PODCAST, the crew digs into big budget Hollywood spectacle and a breakout indie gem. The first review is for Sam Mendes' latest James Bond epic, SPECTRE, and the second is for the buzzed-about indie starring two trans-women shot completely on iPhones, TANGERINE. For the Auteurography segment, the crew discusses another ribald entry in Pier Paolo Pasolini's filmography; a loose adaptation of Geoffrey Chaucer's THE CANTERBURY TALES. There's also mention of Adele's latest music video, Shia LeBeouf's mesmerizing antics, and an unnecessary defense of Tom Cruise and his Mission: Impossible franchise. Enjoy!

The Third Act Podcast – Episode 68

Episode 68

On the sixty-eighth episode of THE THIRD ACT PODCAST, the crew tries to figure out whether to be more scared of gothic ghost-filled mansions or Steve Jobs' maniacal ego. There are three new film reviews; Guillermo Del Toro's not-scary gothic romance, CRIMSON PEAK, Alex Gibney's documentary on the life and legacy of the late Apple CEO, STEVE JOBS: THE MAN IN THE MACHINE, and Danny Boyle's (or really Aaron Sorkin's) expressionistic take on the same public figure, STEVE JOBS. For the Auteurography segment, the crew digs into one of Pier Paolo Pasolini's funniest and most absurd films, THE DECAMERON. A couple micro budget indie films are also mentioned and this episode features some of the most disagreement in the show's history. So, grab your ball gown, iPod, and curl up with the latest of THE THIRD ACT PODCAST!

The Third Act Podcast – Episode 67

Episode 67

On the sixty-seventh episode of THE THIRD ACT PODCAST, the crew is sciencing the shit out of podcasting. This XL episode features reviews for 3 new films: PHOENIX, which is perhaps the best facial reconstruction film of the year. SICARIO, which contains arguments about whether Denis Villeneuve is on a hot streak or way off course. And finally, we try to get answers to the question "Is there life on Mars?" with Ridley Scott's THE MARTIAN. For our Auteurography segment, we discuss Pier Paolo Pasolini's film, MEDEA (not the Tyler Perry character). We also talk Randy Quaid, Johnny Depp's contacts and try not to Damon-splain anything to our dear listeners. Enjoy!

On the sixty-sixth episode of THE THIRD ACT PODCAST, the hills are alive with the sound of The Third Act Podcast! Christian is back form the Telluride Film Festival and has much to discuss including films, atmosphere and who Rooney Mara is dating. For the reviews, the gang discusses the unique female perspective of THE DIARY OF A TEENAGE GIRL and are stuck in (Alex Ross) Perry Purgatory for a review of his psychological thriller QUEEN OF EARTH. We also briefly discuss cannibalism, bestiality and neo nazis for END OF THE TOUR, MISTRESS AMERICA and Pier Paolo Pasolini's PIGSTY (Ok, those topics only came up for the Pasolini film). Enjoy!

The Third Act Podcast – Episode 75

On the seventy-fifth episode of THE THIRD ACT PODCAST, the crew is finally onto 2016. Unfortunately, Armando is out on assignment, but we round out the hosts with a first-time guest, Utah's Favorite Son, Tyler Belk. Tyler joins us to start the show off by telling us his experience at the 2016 Sundance Film Festival and discuss some of the 52 (!) films he saw there. The first film we review may very well be the most subtle and understated film we have reviewed on the podcast, the Romanian comedy, THE TREASURE. Finally, we end the show by talking about The Coen Brothers' latest ode to Hollywood, the star-studded, HAIL, CAESAR! We also discuss what is or isn't "minor Coens," virtual reality, and farting corpse movies. Enjoy!

On the seventy-fourth episode of THE THIRD ACT PODCAST, the crew bids a fond farewell to 2015 and the cinematic pleasures it offered.

We interrupt the film discussion to also mention our favorite performances of the year, favorite movie moments and give out some awards, such as: The Armando Snooze Test Award and Shitty Trailer of the Year.

Films discussed:

THE LOOK OF SILENCE, MAPS TO THE STARS, CLOUDS OF SILS MARIA, QUEEN OF EARTH, STATIONS OF THE CROSS, ENTERTAINMENT, TIMBUKTU, GANGS OF WASSEYPUR, HARD TO BE A GOD, TIME OUT OF MIND, CRIMSON PEAK, RESPIRE (BREATHE), MAD MAX: FURY ROAD, MOMMY, TANGERINE, SON OF SAUL and many more.

On the seventy-third episode of THE THIRD ACT PODCAST, the crew is almost done with the films of 2015. First up, the crew is left for dead in the snow, but somehow they crawl back to discuss Leo DiCaprio's grunting and spitting film, THE REVENANT. Next up is the second Spike Lee joint of 2015, CHI-RAQ, in which the hosts discuss racial politics, rhyming dialogue, and Rev. John Cusack. Finally, there's the third annual "Cram Session" segment in which 14 2015 films are discussed. These include:

PAN, DEATHGASM, STRAIGHT OUTTA COMPTON, AMY, TWO STEP, STINKING HEAVEN, UNCERTAIN TERMS, BUZZARD, ANT-MAN, THE OVERNIGHT, THE BIG SHORT, SALVATION ARMY, GOODBYE TO LANGUAGE, and the Marvel series JESSICA JONES.

Episode 65

On the sixty-fifth episode of THE THIRD ACT PODCAST, the crew continues last episode's trend of focusing solely on indie and foreign films. The first review, TOM AT THE FARM, had its release delayed, but caused a fair bit of hype because all of Xavier Dolan's films have been well received on the show. Meanwhile, STATIONS OF THE CROSS is even further off the beaten path; a minimalist German film about a teenage girl struggling to hold to the fundamentalist Catholic faith of her family. There's also discussion of an NWA museum, Robert Altman's bizarre Popeye film and dreams of Telluride. Enjoy!

On the sixty-fourth episode of THE THIRD ACT PODCAST, the crew celebrates the end of a hiatus by reconvening outside the comfy confines of the Garage to record over Skype. Fortunately, the first episode in this new format comes with some great films to discuss; including the microbudget feminist tale FELT, and the latest Iranian character drama from Asghar Farhadi ABOUT ELLY. For the Auteurography segment, the gang digs into Pasolini's confounding Terence Stamp vehicle, THEOREM. So, grab your sexual organ art and spend the weekend on the beach with The Third Act Podcast!

Bonus Episode 16

On a bittersweet bonus episode of THE THIRD ACT PODCAST, Christian, Jericho, and Armando say farewell to the garage with one last desperate attempt at relevancy. Secrets are shared. Tears are shed. The audio recording quality is endearingly crappy. A list of favorite "garage scenes in films" are compiled. In keeping with the theme of finality, each member discusses a celebrated filmmaker's last cinematic effort. It's a real smorgasbord of conflicting emotions; culminating in a bonafide rabble-rousing finale that's sure to bring down the house (or, err, in this case, the garage). Questions remain. Will the crew soldier on into uncharted podcasting territory, or is this the end of an era? Only one thing is certain; the garage accepts, the garage cleanses, and the garage forgives.

On the sixty-third episode of THE THIRD ACT PODCAST, the crew talk the historic Supreme Court ruling before allowing their animated brain personalities the opportunity to psychoanalyze Pixar's latest animated flick INSIDE OUT. Next, the fetisization of VHS culture gets it's turn with the Zellner Brother's eccentrically sad new picture KUMIKO THE TREASURE HUNTER, starring Rinko Kikuchi and a fluffy rabbit. Finally, things go silent as the podcasters attempt to communicate through Ukrainian sign language whether or not Myroslav Slaboshpitsky’s formal experiment THE TRIBE is worth "talking" about. Pasolini gets kicked out of the garage this time, but stick around until the end of the show for another historic announcement that will forever change the future of THE THIRD ACT PODCAST.

Episode 62

On the sixty-second episode of THE THIRD ACT PODCAST, The garage is heating up both literally (it's like 100 degrees outside) and figuratively, as there are disagreements in pretty much every film discussed. The first review is for an obscure Icelandic film that features several vignettes about the relationship between man and beast called OF HORSES AND MEN, while the last review involves a lot of soul searching as the hosts try and parse out their feelings about Brian Wilson with LOVE & MERCY. For our Auteurography segment, we discuss whether or not the incestuous Sophocles adaptation, Oedipus Rex, is Pasolini's first misstep. All that, plus a history lesson on Akeelah and the Bee. Enjoy!

On the sixty-first episode of THE THIRD ACT PODCAST, the garage rolls out the red carpet to discuss the "heelgate" fiasco at the Cannes Film Festival, the musical stylings of Elvis Presley vs. Frank Sinatra, and the thespian abilities of Jay Baruchel. Of course, there are films to review as well; including writer-director John Maclean’s post-revisionist Western SLOW WEST, Brett Morgan's collage-like documentary KURT COBAIN: MONTAGE OF HECK and George Miller's post-apocalyptic destruction derby MAD MAX: FURY ROAD. There's also a spirited discussion regarding surf rock dancing Italians, talking crows, and Marxism with Pier Paolo Pasolini's 1965 film THE HAWKS AND THE SPARROWS.

Bonus Episode 15

On a morally probing bonus episode of THE THIRD ACT PODCAST, the crew sit down in the garage to dissect writer-director Alex Garland's heady sci-fi debut EX MACHINA. Themes such as the God Complex, gender roles, singularity, misogyny, and female empowerment are discussed, as well as clutch facial hair, sweet disco dance moves, and faulty key cards. It's a techno-phobic, post-humanist episode for the ages that seeks to illuminate the age-old scenario of how fast a dorky, emasculated man will take to fall in love with a hot female robot prototype!
