Episode 91: Good Will Hunting (1997)

goodwillhuntingIn their second look at dramatic roles for Robin Williams, it's 1997's "Good Will Hunting." Directed by Gus Van Sant, written by Matt Damon and Ben Affleck, and starring Damon, Affleck, Stellan Skarsgard, Casey Affleck, Minnie Driver, Scott William Winters, and Robin Williams in the role that would finally net him an Academy Award, this is the story of a Southie, Will (Damon), an unknown genius and mathematical prodigy, who is discovered by Dr. Gerald Lambeau (Skarsgard). After a run-in with the law that Will cannot talk his way out of, he is remanded into the "custody" of Lambeau on the condition that he work with the professor every week, and that he get therapy. After convincing several other therapists that they cannot help him, Lambeau turns to his old friend Sean (Williams), who decides that Will is a challenge worth accepting. Damon and Affleck would also win the Academy Award for Best Original Screenplay for the film as well! And finally, let the terrible trio of film tell you about the two "ultimate classic" horror films they're reviewing for episodes 92 and 93!

Episode 90: Dead Poets Society (1989)

deadpoetsThe year is 1959 and, at Welton Academy, a preparatory school for boys, another year is beginning. This year, however, is going to be different than any other, because Professor John Keating has come to Welton to teach English Literature. His passionate, unusual style of teaching poetry seizes the imagination of several of his students, leading them to revive the long-defunct "Dead Poets Society," and attempt to "suck the marrow out of life," just as Keating did when he attended Welton. With Robert Sean Leonard, Ethan Hawke, Josh Charles, Norman Lloyd, Kurtwood Smith, and Robin Williams as John Keating (a role that would net him an academy award nomination), under the guidance of director Peter Weir, and with the words of great poets and screenwriter Tom Schulman, this "unmakeable" film has become an unforgetable tribute to poetry, to love, to finding your bliss, and to the incredible acting talent that was Robin Williams!

Episode 88: Leon: The Professional (1994)

leonprofessionalHe's one of the top "cleaners" in the world, and he's no one to underestimate. But when a twelve-year-old girl needs his help, he reluctantly takes on a junior partner. Written and directed by the incredible Luc Besson, this week's film is 1994's "Leon: The Professional." Starring Jean Reno, Gary Oldman, Danny Aiello, and Natalie Portman in her first-ever cinematic role, this film takes the "hitman" trope and approaches it from a new directly. For a "throwaway" film, this turned out to be one of the brightest spots in Besson's career!

Episode 87: Doctor Detroit (1983)

doctordetroitOur second "Prostitution Comedy" is similar in concept to our first: It's a fish-out-of-water story and it's a geek-becoming-a-hero story, but it accomplishes these tropes in quite a different way from the first film of the pairing. In 1983's "Doctor Detroit," directed by Michael Pressman, it's mild-mannered Clifford Skridlow (Dan Aykroyd) being used as a patsy by the conniving Smooth Walker (Howard Hesseman) when Cliff is made the protector of four ladies of the evening (Donna Dixon, Lydia Lei, Lynn Whitfield, and Fran Drescher), who must keep them from becoming the property of the evil Mom (Kate Murtagh), while still fulfilling familial and collegiate responsibilities! It's a more light-hearted take on the genre, and a rollicking, fun filmic experience! And Buddy, Chad, and Jeff reveal their second listener-suggested film pairing for the next two episodes!
