Patriot Games

Paramount was eager to adapt more Tom Clancy novels after Red October brought home a boatload of cash. But is it as much fun to play Patriot Games with so many important pieces missing from the sequel? Gone are the Cold War politics, sleek submarine technology, and Alec Baldwin as our nerdy CIA analyst hero. Will Arnie, Jakob, and Stuart remain loyal to the past, or go with Harrison Ford as an older Jack Ryan defending his family and seaside home from crazy Sean Bean (Lord of the Rings) and a rogue IRA faction? Listen and find out.

Color of Night - For Annual Subscribers

Bruce Willis briefly left the action theatrics of John McClane behind to play doctor with femme fatale Jane March in the erotic thriller Color of Night.  But will the macho star die hard for spending too much time dropping trou at the swimming pool while his patients drop dead at the hands of a seductive killer?  And did this notorious blue movie leave the creators red-faced after it was declared the Worst Film of 1994?  Stuart, Jakob, and Arnie are ready to provide the necessary counseling to anyone who becomes a Now Playing Patron this July.

The Hunt for Red October {Tom Clancy} {Jack Ryan}

Sean Connery has stolen a Soviet nuclear submarine, and now every Cold War naval vessel is on The Hunt For Red October. Tom Clancy's 1984 bestseller was designed to torpedo Rambo shoot 'em ups, and take the action genre into a new decade of thinking man 'techno-thrillers'. But did Alec Baldwin study enough about his co-star to turn his untested CIA analyst into the next James Bond?  Arnie, Jakob, and Stuart are ready to track every move in Jack Ryan's 30 year movie career, starting with this 1990 blockbuster.  Listen Now!

Real Genius - For Annual Subscribers

Anyone can make a popcorn film, but it takes a Real Genius to engineer one of the greatest comedies of the '80s!  Join Arnie this June as he slips on the Deely Bobbers and heads back to his Reagan-era school days for another look at this cherished Cold War spoof from the creators of Valley Girl and Police Academy. Can party animal Val Kilmer teach a 15-year-old nerd how to stop worrying and love the high powered laser they're developing for satellite warfare? It doesn't take a rocket scientist to realize you need to become a Now Playing Patron and listen now!
