Now Peaking Episode 40: Laura is the one. - For Annual Subscribers

Trainspotting

In 1996 director Danny Boyle exploded on the indie film scene with his octane-fueled heroin comedy-drama Trainspotting. Based on the eponymous novel by Irvine Welsh, the film has a unique vibe, a killer soundtrack, and turned Ewan McGregor into a star. Can the 20-year-old film give the Now Playing hosts the same high it once did? Choose life. Choose Now Playing. Inject this into your ears now!

25 years after Laura Palmer’s body washes up on shore (or is that 26 years? Or 27?) the evil Agent Cooper doppleganger continues his criminal activities.

Spider-Man: Homecoming

Spider-Man has finally come home! While Marvel Studios started without its most popular characters, an agreement between studios (aided by some North Korean hackers) has now made it so Marvel's most super of heroes, Spider-Man, can stand alongside the other cinematic Avengers. But this is this third big-screen incarnation of the wall crawler in 10 years. Does this one swing higher than Raimi's and Webb's movies? Listen to find out!

Baby Driver

No, Baby Driver is not about an infant taking his parents' car for a spin. Baby Driver is the latest film from Scott Pilgrim vs the World and Shaun of the Dead auteur Edgar Wright. For his fifth studio film Wright brings his unique take to the car chase genre. Or is it the musical? No matter. Load up your iPod Classic, pop in your ear buds, and join the hosts of Now Playing for this revved up movie review!

Monster Trucks - for Annual Subscribers

Cars and monsters. It sounds like a perfectly easy formula for a kid's movie. Kids love cars. Kids love monsters. And yet Monster Trucks became a monstrous loss for studio Paramount Pictures, who took a $115 million loss before the film even came out. Is it truly one of the worst films of all time, or is its hideous reputation undeserved? Arnie, Stuart, and Jerry take the film for a spin. Become a Patron for Now Playing and you can hear their review!

NOTE: This listing is for annual subscribers to our show. You can also get this movie review and all other Patron exclusives by supporting us at the $10 level or higher.

Now Peaking Episode 38: Gotta light? - For Annual Subscribers

Forty-four years before the death of Laura Palmer, the first nuclear weapon was detonated in White Sands, New Mexico. How is it possible that act had a direct impact on the small town of Twin Peaks, Washington? Maybe this episode explained that in forty minutes of trippy, black and white, mostly silent film. All that is discussed, plus the shocking turn for Mr. C, and the performance by The Nine Inch Nails. Hear it all on this Now Peaking!
