AfterLunch | KieferThon, Part 1

I'm joined by my brother Mark to start a journey through the filmography of one our favorite actors, Kiefer Sutherland. In this first episode, we cover Sutherland's career from his first jobs in Max Dugan Returns (1983) and The Bay Boy (1984), his revelatory 1985 performance in Steven Spielberg's Amazing Stories, and all four of his 1986 movies, including his blink-and-miss-it part in At Close Range, the wildly varying-in-quality TV films Trapped in Silence and The Brotherhood of Justice, and finally his breakout role as Ace Merrill in Stand By Me.

Everyone loves Robin Hood and we're no exceptions.

Starting with our experiences with the Robin Hood legend in general, the conversation then moves to the classic, 1938 film The Adventures of Robin Hood. Starring of course Errol Flynn, Olivia de Havilland, Basil Rathbone, and Claude Rains.

AfterLunch | Iron Man 3 (Redux) with William Bruce West

On the last episode of AfterLunch, where our MCU panel talked about Iron Man 3, I mentioned that William Bruce West and I had a conversation about the same movie for my former Christmas movie podcast. Even though we did talk about how Iron Man 3 works in some Christmas themes, most of the conversation was about the movie in general. So for that reason, and because William Bruce West is awesome, I thought you might enjoy hearing (or possibly re-hearing) that discussion.

And of course, there are its controversial villains, kid sidekick, and whether or not that ending works super well.
