After Lunch | Thunderball (1965)

Rob, Karen Flieger, and I talk about Sean Connery's fourth adventure as James Bond in Thunderball. Lots of music discussion in this one, praise for Paula Caplan and Fiona Volpe, and awe at Largo's impressive sense of fashion.

166 | Top 10 Years Later (2013)

Pax, guest Noel Thingvall, and I (with input from Evan as well) recall our favorite films of 2013 and how we feel about them now. And we might get into some of the big stinkers of 2013 as well.

After Lunch | Marvel's Year Without Superheroes

Rob, Evan, guest Jody Collins, and I imagine a reality in which Marvel Comics takes a year off from publishing superhero comics to focus on other genres. What genres should they pick? What stories should they tell? And what creators should write and draw them?

After Lunch | Bond Novels: The Man with the Golden Gun

I wrap up my series of solo episodes about Ian Fleming’s James Bond novels with his last book: The Man With the Golden Gun. Heavily influenced by the three films that had come out by then, it's a hint at the direction the series might have taken had Fleming lived long enough to write more. Whether that's a good thing or not is up for discussion.

After Lunch | Mission: Impossible II (2000)

Michael and Rob get through John Woo's stylistic sequel, but is it really as bad as they remembered? There's guitars, slow motion, sunglasses, and doves, but also Anthony Hopkins, Thandiwe Newton, and Ving Rhames.
