Taxi Driver - For Annual Subscribers

Join Jakob, Stuart, and Arnie in the cab this October as they take Patrons through Taxi Driver - one of Martin Scorsese’s most acclaimed films!  Is there a better way to beat insomnia than spending time with unhinged Travis Bickle (Robert DeNiro) as he plots to wash away politicians and pimps alike from the dirty streets of 1970s Times Square?  And will angel Cybill Shepherd, or a preteeen Jodie Foster in her first Oscar-nominated role, be the lucky girl in the backseat when all the shooting is over? Become a Patron and find out!

Joker

It’s Arthur Fleck, better known as Joker!  Before becoming Batman’s #1 nemesis, the Clown Prince of Crime was just a struggling stand-up comic doing his best to make the public smile on the mean streets of Gotham. Can Joaquin Phoenix convince the Now Playing hosts that heartless millionaires like mayoral candidate (and father of Bruce) Thomas Wanye are the true enemies of the people?  And is Hangover director Todd Phillips making a Scorsese inspired tragedy, or Trumpian comedy, out of this atypical DC Comics origin story?  Listen and find out!

I Am Legend - For Annual Subscribers

Good news! In the new Willennium, cancer has been cured. Bad news! New York City is now full of bloodthirsty Darkseekers who want to get jiggy with last man on earth Will Smith in the third telling of I Am Legend. Should the buff virologist spend less of his day doing pull-ups, deer hunting in Times Square, and watching Shrek, and put more energy towards reversing Krippin Virus?  Or is life in the Big Apple better when you only have to make conversation with a dog and a bunch of mannequins? Get your Now Playing fix when you become a Silver Level Donor.

Charlie’s Angels (2000)

"Girl Power!" The sentiment continues, but the look has changed dramatically since the era of Spice Girls and, this week's movie review, 2000's Charlie's Angels. Listen now as our hosts remember what feminism looked like--in an unzipped mechanic's jumpsuit--as Cameron Diaz, Drew Barrymore, and Lucy Liu update the Angels for a new millennium!  

The Omega Man - For Annual Subscribers

Hollywood legend Charlton Heston went from Alpha male on Planet of the Apes to The Omega Man - the last human alive in a Los Angeles devastated by germ warfare.

And do all those vaccines protect Chuck from his lustful feelings for foxy "last woman" Rosalind Cash? Join the Silver Level Family this fall to hear Stuart, Arnie, and Jakob burn down this ‘70s camp classic.   Donate Now for our Fall/Winter 2019 Donation Drive!

Rambo: Last Blood

It's been 11 years. The world has changed. John Rambo, however, has not--he's just tried to keep a lid on it. That lid blows when his "niece" is abducted by a Mexican cartel, and Rambo is out for Last Blood.  Should this be Rambo's final mission? Join Arnie, Brock, and Jakob for this review to find out!
