#64: The Prestige: Bale v. Hackman

The Prestige is a movie directed by Christopher "Chris" Nolan, co-written with his baby bro Jonathan. But as "Chris" is a master of the subliminal, it becomes quite clear that The Prestige is Nolan's revelation to the world that he and Jonathan are actually the same person -- or, as Michael Caine would say, Jonathan is his "dubbow". 

This movie is confusing. In fact, at some level, we are almost certain it doesn't make any sense. But who gives a shit, cause magicians are fucking awesome! And if you don't think these magicians are super duper badass, then you'll at least be treated to some Bowie Tesla. In making this film, was "Chris" conspiring with Elon Musk to prepare the world for Tesla's return? Did that conspiring continue into Interstellar, when "Chris" prepared the world for Space X's mission to colonize other planets? 

Yes. And you'll hear why when you listen to this episode, which is such an awesome episode you really don't want to miss it, because if you miss it, your life will be a little less good than it would have been if you tuned into this snob. Keep the magic alive, keep questioning, and beware of any sinister dubbows waiting around the corner to drown you. 

#62: Blue Velvet

Blue Velvet is a disturbing movie. The main reason it is disturbing is because of a man named Hopper. Dennis Hopper to be exact. Dennis Hopper plays Frank, a crazy man who inhales nitrous oxide from a ventilator he seems to always have. In reality, Dennis Hopper is playing Dennis Hopper, because when D.H. saw the script, he told filmmaker David Lynch, "I must play Frank, because I am Frank." If that is the case, it's a good thing he's dead. 

Join us for this disturbing snob that gets Freudian real fast. This one takes us out of our comfort zone. That's what David Lynch does. He seems to want to show us that we are all twisted when we dig deep enough, just like protagonist Jeffrey, played by the detective from Twin Peaks. Jeffrey likes Heineken, but Frank likes Pabst Blue Ribbon. We never learn what Ben likes, because Ben is more interested in lip synching Roy Orbison songs and punching Jeffrey in the stomach. Regardless, crack open your beer, pour yourself a coffee, and join us on this snob through the repressed sexuality of the dark unconscious. 

#60: Rick and Morty: Mr. Poopybutthole and Fascist Assholes

Good snobs! How delighted we are to bring you this new episode on the hit TV show, Rick and Morty. Specifically, we focus on Episode 204, "Total Rickall", which Matt and Sean believe is one of the greatest episodes of television of all time. The reason? Partly because of "Pencil-vester". Partly due to Mr. Beauregard ("Marmelade is seeeerved"). But credit shall be given where credit is due: this episode has come to be in thanks to our beloved Mr. Poopybutthole, one of the greatest TV characters of all time. 

While on the surface "Total Rickall" appears to be about an alien parasite that creates false memories in people in order to spread and take over the planet, Matt and Sean's hermeneutic reads between these lines. What might this infectious parasite be an allegory for? Fascism, no doubt! 

Join us for this rip-roaring interdimensional journey through the land of a cartoon sure to live on in infamy. And if you haven't seen this episode of Rick and Morty, please stop all you are doing and watch it right now. Praise Be, Mr. Poopybutthole.
