Trilogy in Theory

Release Date: 07/12/2014

Trilogy in Theory

We continue our podcast tour of Paris (which is to say, not really) with great philosophical debate over the nature of dreams (also, not really) as one host finds Christopher Nolan's INCEPTION strangely intimate and the other is four levels deep into the process of filmmaking. By the end of it, no conclusions can be drawn other than we sound like two guys who have no business being in Paris. Or your ears. But here we are!

The dream of TRILOGY IN THEORY started with a conversation on THE BEFORE TRILOGY... which means of course that one host will question the need of Richard Linklater to the whole venture while the other host reveals his true passion for these characters comes back to a rather attractive high school classmate. A finer pair of serious-minded cinephiles you will not find as we discuss BEFORE SUNSET for our second TRILOGY IN THEORY!

Trilogy in Theory

One host looks into the symbol of the rabbit in mythology but can't market our first selected trilogy worth a damn. Meanwhile your other host gets into the weeds of time travel (thanks Richard Kelly!) and accepts the things he will never fully understand... which could very well be our selected trilogy of HARVEY, DONNIE DARKO and JOJO RABBIT.

Trilogy in Theory

A scrappy Nazi youth and his even more precocious imaginary friend Hitler made for unfortunately timely movie watching in 2019 as we wrap up our selections for our rabbit trilogy with the title character JOJO RABBIT. Thankfully there is a little dancing and a little Sam Rockwell (and your favorite podcast hosts!) to make it somewhat palatable.

Donnie Darko (2001) show art Donnie Darko (2001)

Trilogy in Theory

In which you find your hosts befuddled by the youth of both the 80s setting of Richard Kelly's DONNIE DARKO... but also by themselves in 2001 when this film was originally released. One host wonders if he missed out on the fun for this cult classic while the other doesn't feel hip for being there... just really, really old.

Harvey (1950) show art Harvey (1950)

Trilogy in Theory

In our first proper episode of TRILOGY IN THEORY you will quickly succumb to the charms of James Stewart in the classic 1950 film HARVEY... and also quickly surmise that your hosts Mike and Web are enablers of this great Hollywood star. Our only issue really is with the supposed height of this friend named Harvey...

Trilogy in Theory

In a time when separation from your friends and family is encouraged we chose a theme of sisters separated and the consequences that come along with this decision. So maybe our theme isn't encouraging the social distancing necessary but we do have a new favorite in INVISIBLE LIFE followed with some kinkier material in VICE AND VIRTUE and SISTERS (the DePalma one, not Tina Fey). And the guest who takes all the blame for this is of , because he deserves it.

On this episode we present next door neighbors to Quentin Tarantino's latest divisive film (that opened to glowing reviews and box-office success... but real divisive!) ONCE UPON A TIME IN HOLLYWOOD with an officially sanctioned classic IN A LONELY PLACE and one Oscar contender miss in HOLLYWOODLAND. Programming this seemingly unfair fight is my co-host from , , who states on this episode that all the value he attained from film school resides in this very episode. On that depressing note please subscribe to our podcast where we relive happier times and the films of 1999! Support what we do...

Trilogy in Theory

We invite CAPTAIN MARVEL superfan, but not a fanboy for that's an important distinction,  of to tell us just how wrong he is about this Brie Larson "buddy comedy." Along the way we go back to simpler times when Arnold Schwarzenegger could play an everyman in TOTAL RECALL and when Tim Allen "played" an asshole in GALAXY QUEST. For a theme on altered perceptions in science fiction... neither of us change our mind and probably only change your mind on continuing to listen to this podcast.
