“Grease” is the Word… or is it?

For its 40th anniversary, “Grease” has gotten a pretty spiffy new Blu-ray edition.  The real question though is whether or this classic movie musical is something best relegated to the dustbin of history or if it is still as slick as ever. Oh, certainly, there are some undeniably great moments, but there are some that… Read More

Josh Runs… Why is that Again?

We are going to do a non-movie/TV based episode this week.  I apologize and ask you to forgive this bit of indulgence.  I also promise that next week we’re going to talk about movies again.  In fact, we’re going to be talking about the filmic version of “Grease” specifically. But, this week… this week the… Read More

"Lass is More" Flashes Back to "Manchester by the Sea" and "Nocturnal Animals"

I may be on vacation this week, but it’s awards season and the podcast must go on.

"Lass is More" Visits "The Edge of Seventeen"
