Episode 64: Heat (1995)

The guys feel the heat around the corner this week as they discuss Michael Mann’s 1995 crime classic Heat. Aside from just being an incredible movie, Heat is probably most known for finally bringing acting titans Robert De Niro and Al Pacino together on screen for the first time, and the guys talk about how it’s a film that seems to play on the real-life movie magic as it makes its statement on two men who will do anything to get the job done and can’t seem to turn away from their work. The episode is about that, sure, but it’s really mostly about Val Kilmer’s ponytail.

Episode 59: The Silence of the Lambs (1991)

It plays the episode from iTunes store or else it gets the hose once more as the guys talk Jonathan Demme’s 1991 film The Silence of the Lambs. They talk about what a classic film villain Hannibal Lecter is, and how successful the first installment of the film franchise is where one of the more iconic villains could really be second-billed behind the absolutely terrifying Buffalo Bill. There is some dissension in the ranks as some Bit Players feel the film is fully deserving of the uncanny Oscar sweep of the five major categories, while some find it to be typical horror cheese. One thing can be agreed upon: The Silence of the Lambs is creepy as hell.
