Episode 155: The Majestic (2001)

majesticOur second film for our "Films About Movie Theatres" pairing comes from 2001, and director Frank Darabont (who also directed "The Shawshank Redemption" and "The Green Mile"), and tells the story about a Hollywood writer suspected of communist ties back in the McCarthy era, who loses his memory and gets mistaken for a "thought-dead" soldier miraculously returned from WWII in writer Michael Sloane's amazing "The Majestic." The film stars Jim Carey in his first serious (as opposed to comedic) starring role, Martin Landau, Laurie Holden, Bob Balaban, Jeffrey DeMunn, Hal Holbrook, David Ogden Stiers, and the final cinematic performance of veteran character actor James Whitmore. Plus, the film features the voices of Garry Marshall, Paul Mazursky, Syndney Pollack, Carl Reiner, Rob Reiner, and Matt Damon! This is a "Jim Carey movie" unlike any other, and a good story with a message that still resonates, especially in today's world! Plus, the trio let you in on which two time-travel films they'll focus on for their first pairing in that genre!
