Bad Cop films that neither of us has seen is this week's theme. Japanese director Beat Takeshi's, "Fireworks" (1997), was up first and both M&A thought it was excellent and unique in so many ways. A film with very little dialogue, Takeshi has stripped his movie of all excess so not a word or frame is wasted. Very French New Wave. On the other hand,…
 
Feels good to be back in the dining room studio. On this week's show: 9/11 thoughts Big ol flag in Barre COVID and vax mandates CVU student goes viral Unemployment benefits end in Vermont Update on Rutland shooting VT state troopers resign after making fake vax cards Broad support for new Afghans Garbage wars (59:29) 1st break music: DonnCherie - "…
 
Good Cop is this weeks theme. Based on a true story, Al Pacino is at his best as a good cop who struggles with the entrenched corruption of the New York City Police Department in Serpico (1973). The fifth Sidney Lumet film we've reviewed on the show and M&A both found it to really good, but not great. From South Korea, Veteran (2015) is a raucous a…
 
On today's show: Fair food To save or not to save a squirrel COVID update aka people are losing it Push for pro-choice amendment in VT VT wants 100 Afghans Vermont to investigate medical wait times Questions remain in Rutland officer-involved shooting Molly Gray.....grrrr Break Music: Shrimp Mash - "My Own God". Check out more music here. Gene Rich…
 
This week's theme is Accidental Espionage with a good and bad example of this sub-genre of the buddy/road movie. The In-Laws (1979) is a showcase for the two main stars - Peter Falk and Alan Alda. After a brief salute to the greatness of James Hong, Matt and Adam explain why it felt like a complete movie. Gotcha! (1985) has good bones, but a lot of…
 
The theme this week is Relationships are........complicated, but it very well could have been "everybody lies". Steven Soderbergh's directorial debut "Sex, Lies and Videotapes", (1989) caused quite a stir on the film festival circuit and M&A agree it still holds up. James Spader is creepy good. Matt had never heard of Mike Nichol's film "Closer" (2…
 
Abbreviated show this week due to some scheduling conflicts. It was miserably hot, so please excuse the fan noise. On today's show: Dead anti-vaxxers Canada trip How bout them Lake Monsters? No masks in Canaan VT population growth Scott offers to take Afghan refugees GMT drivers might strike Essex breaks up...again "Proud to be white" moron (35:10)…
 
Directorial Debuts is this weeks theme. We start with our top 5 directorial debuts. Terrance Malick's "Badlands" (1973) is based on a real life killing spree in 1958 and it gives us a glimpse of Malik's poetic style in both photography and language. M&A agree Sissy Spacek steals the show (19:57). "Following" (1998) is a neo-noir crime drama that Ch…
 
An early morning show in a vain attempt to beat the heat. On today's show: Field of Dreams Game Jeopardy host Sriracha shortage 3 Needs requires a vax Gov. Scott calls for some vax requirements 1.5mil masks to North Macedonia We need more cops Burlington rejects more cops National Guard good ol boy network Eviction worries (46:05) Break 1 - Rivan C…
 
Lovable Losers is this weeks theme. "Better Off Dead" (1985) is a favorite of Adam's childhood, but a very disappointed Matt gave one of his worst reviews. Adam Sandler does his Adam Sandler thing in P.T. Anderson's odd romantic comedy, "Punch Drunk Love" (2002), but with a better script and director. While both M&A liked it, they questioned the ro…
 
On today's show: What would you do? - email edition Luis Guzman and Gomez Addams COVID stuff Crazy flooding in Southern Vermont BTV torn about hiring more cops Brandon corruption? Unions want VT to pay pensions Rabies bait drop A USA Today column about white supremacists in Brandon (1:01:30) 1st break Music - Champlain Shoregasm - "Hey, Geppetto". …
 
Weird, Dystopian buildings is the this week's theme and we probably found the only two films in that category. Both Matt and Adam found "Delicatessen" (1991) to be a zany, worthwhile trip into the world of circus clowns, butchers, cellists, troglodytes and terrible buildings. "High-Rise" (2015) is a film Matt loved, hated and found indifferent, but…
 
It doesn't feel like summer here in #BurlingtonVT so we watched a couple summer movies to get those vibes, particularly vibes about wondering "What's next?" Breaking Away (1979) is the kind of movie that simply does not get made any more. Wholesome, sex-less, drug-free teens. Adventureland (2009) showcases the sweeter side of the Superbad director,…
 
On location again...kinda. On this week's show: ZZ Top and Pearl Necklaces BBQ Etiquette Switchel sounds gross COVID spikes Vaccine mandates? The freedom to so yourself in Festival of fools VT gun importer sued for mass shooting Vermonters want free college Saint Albans - City of the future More scattered housing (48:15) Break music 1 - Fattie B - …
 
We are on location, and Glo is on one. On this week's show: Garden talk Casual racism Canada is open...kinda Amtrak is back. Do we care? Fix the roads (and bridges), Miro! Ben & Jerry's gets political BTV is getting hot Eldercare Mail carrier shortage in Vermont Vermont air quality suffers from west coast fires Vermonters getting fleeced on groceri…
 
Prison is the theme this week. "Cool Hand Luke" (1967) is a classic Paul Newman film about a lovable ne'er do well's life in a Florida chain gang prison that Adam loved from the opening scene. "Luke" lost to "In the Heat of the Night" for Best Picture, and both M&A think it was a travesty of justice. "Bronson" (2008) is the story of Charles Bronson…
 
Glo abandons us for most of the show, yet somehow, we persist. On this week's show: Big bug talk RIP Biz Markie Algae shrugs No good solution for the homeless problem Vermont teachers' union and School Boards do not realize their common enemy Is Miro a little shady? Burlington / Red Stone beef gets resolved Winooski real estate beef gets started Cr…
 
Revolution is in the air. Matt had never heard of the British film "If...." (1968) until Adam had him watch it. He loved it. A young Malcom McDowell stars as the lead "revolutionary" in an all boys prep school as he and a couple friends decide that school should be out, permanently. "If" is refreshingly unique and a little weird. Check it out. Wood…
 
Recorded the show. Watched the soccer game. Probably had a pint too many with my wife. Then edited the show and typed up the show notes. Please send all errors and complaints to our human resources department - 123@fakestreet.com . On today's show: Grand Isle misadventures We fix baseball...or just complain and pontificate The "secret" to Vermont's…
 
It's Patriotic films this week. Adam has one question, "Is one of these really a patriotic movie?". "1776" (1:35) definitely fits into that category. A retelling of the month leading up the Declaration of Independence. Both Matt and Adam liked the dialog, but felt most of the songs were less than memorable. "Born on the Fourth of July" (31:56) was …
 
Dreary day, but we made the most of it. On this week's show: Two left feet, literally Springstein vs Petty Hot AF in VT VT Utilities trying to save (thousands) of dollars Emergency housing runs out No vax for the statehouse One legislator is out of touch with reality Mental health money to Rutland Burlington policing is sporadic Saint Albans resour…
 
"Vacations Gone Wrong" is this weeks theme. Ridley Scott's "Thelma and Louise" (1991) is a ground breaking feminist version of an outlaw road movie and both M&A think it still holds true today. Geena Davis and Susan Sarandon are both terrific in their title roles. Filmed in Scotland, "Calibre" (2018) seems to skirt on the edge of cliche, but ends u…
 
An early morning show. Hey, what's that in your coffee? .... Adam tried to get cute with his audio, and it has been deleted forever apparently. That means it is difficult to hear him, but hey, maybe some people prefer that. Sigh...off to throw the laptop in Lake Champlain.... Good coffee buzz South Burlington cairns Unemployment dips All-resident v…
 
Growing up in crime is the theme for this week. The body counts are high in both our films. Brazil's "City of God" (2002) is the story of gangs in the slums of Rio de Janeiro and has the highest IMBD score of any film we reviewed on the show. Both M&A thought it was fantastic, but the violence can be a bit overwhelming. Italy's "Gomorrah" (2008) wo…
 
Another beautiful Sunday morning in Vermont. Sometimes its easy to forget how lucky we are. On this week's show: Piles of rage and corporate speak Dog sits and COVID longing Juneteenth - how do we celebrate? Critical Race Theory is not the terror you think it is Saint Albans black face Vermont budget Post pandemic housing issues CityPlace beef Verm…
 
Adam gives Matt two important films from the 90's this week. It's unbelievable that Matt had never seen "Trainspotting" (1996), but after watching it, he agrees with Adam that it's a minor masterpiece. Matt admits that 18 year old Matt may have liked "American Pie" (1999), but 65 year old Matt did not. Adam enjoyed this film of his youth and knew s…
 
We hit up Weird Window Brewery after recording, so yeah, I'll do the rundown later. Or not. Thank you so much for listening! We really appreciate each and every listener. You could do anything with your time, but you choose to spend it with us, and for that, we are so grateful. Contact the show: 24theroadshow@gmail.com Intro/Outro Music by B-Comple…
 
Matt's gives Adam two films from the 70's this week. Peter Bogdanovich's "The Last Picture Show" (1971), filmed in black and white, is the story about a dying Texas town in the early fifties. Both M&A thought it was original, well written and a must view. Peter Sellers last good film "Being There" (1979), directed by the great Hal Ashby, was a labo…
 
Minor League/College Baseball is the theme for this week. "Bull Durham" (1987) was Kevin Costner's first of his three 80s-90s baseball movies (Field of Dreams, For Love of the Game). Matt, a baseball fanatic, liked it more than Adam, who thought there was too much baseball and not enough of the Costner, Robbins and Sarandon dynamic. "Everybody Want…
 
An early Friday show to kick the weekend off right. On today's show: Matt and Glo's trip to Brattleboro and Wilmington Calvin Coolidge museum Masks are coming off New vax incentives Pandemic turnover curbside alcohol is here to stay Phil Scott vetoes all-citizen voting Hosuing options worsen in the pandemic (duh) Hm, where should we put this high s…
 
Our bocce league starts tomorrow, and we are......not ready. On today's show: Hot bocce talk (aka fear of our Bosnian demise) COVID looking good Vaccine arrogance Police shortage Burlington Catholic Diocese in the news for exactly what you think Burlington High School kids don't mix Let's promote Michael Harrington! Bernie gets it right "Theory of …
 
"Drinking" is this weeks theme and we have two good ones. Writer Charles Bukowski's "Barfly" (1987) is beautifully written trip into the grimy underworld of LA dive bars. Both Matt and Adam loved the dialogue, but neither could figure out where Mickey Rourke's accent was from. Denmark's "Another Round" (2020) is about four high school teachers who …
 
I've been lazy about reaching to new Vermont bands. I'll get back on it next week. Enjoy some music from some older favorites, from Burlington to Manchester, Vermont. Rock, rock on. On today's show: COVID numbers Paying for new Vermonters New week; new reason to fire Michael Harrington Burlington electric raises rates Kurn Hattin stays open because…
 
"Vignettes" is the theme for the latest episode. First up, Richard Linklater's, "Slacker" (1990), a film in which the camera follows different people around Austin and captures moments in their lives. Adam thought it was able capture the early nineties. Matt liked it, but it's not that memorable. Robert Altman's "Short Cuts" (1993) is based on Raym…
 
We recorded an early morning show as a change. It was just too nice to stay inside all day. On today's show: Masking issues Howard Dean, staunch capitalist Racism is declared a public health emergency in Vermont How hard is it to check for radon? No statute of limitations on physical abuse civil suits No longer suspending/expelling little kids Vict…
 
"Good Remakes" is this week's theme for Two for the Road: Movies with Matt and Adam. "The Killers" (1964) is a remake of a 1946 film by the same name. It's not as good as the original, but is worth a look as both M&A thought Angie Dickinson stole the show. John Carpenter's "The Thing" (1982) is a much better version of 1951's "The Thing from Anothe…
 
Back and fully vaxxed! On today's show: Zoom interview attire? Number 1 in vaxxing Colleges to require vaxxing New Burlington budget and predictions of who will be angry Oh wow, a living wage hard to find rentals in Burlington Electric bikes will pedal for you Vermont religious schools cannot discriminate North End Studios perv gets lease terminate…
 
"Intricate Heists" is this weeks theme. The Killing (1956) was Stanley Kubrick's first mature film and both M&A think it's one of Kubrick's best. Very straightforward and tight, it was a big influence on Tarantino's Reservoir Dogs. The Handmaiden (2016) is the latest Korean film reviewed on this show, and like the others, it did not disappoint. Mor…
 
We spend quite a bit of time catching up in the beginning after 2 weeks off. Newsy stuff starts at (32:40). At (1:13:00), Matt's mic cuts out for the rest of the episode. Sigh, I guess we're out of practice. See ya next week....if I don't throw my laptop in Lake Champlain. On today's show: Glo is a Portugal citizen Matt and Glo get lost in Boston M…
 
This week's theme is Before/After War. Michael Cimino's "The Deer Hunter" (1978) is the story of friends from a steel town in Pennsylvania who join the army near the end of the VietNam War. Matt and Adam both found the story convoluted and unrealistic, but both felt the strength the general theme and great acting make it worthwhile. Beware, it is o…
 
In honor of the national holiday 4/20, Stoner Movies is this week's theme. "Harold and Kumar Go to White Castle" (2004) is about as "Stoner" as you get and didn't disappoint. Matt found it funnier than he thought it would be and Adam enjoyed it more on his second viewing. Both thought Neil Patrick Harris stole the show. "Inherent Vice" (2014) felt …
 
The original theme for our latest podcast was Neo-Noir, but it's been updated to Horse Noir. "Thoroughbreds" (2017) is about two young women who decide that a step-father needs to go. Both M&A found the acting and story on the plus side, but the movie seemed flat and unemotional. Not a lot of laughs. "The Death of Dick Long" (2019) is just as good …
 
I don't know when we went off the rails, or if we were ever on the rails. Who needs rails? Stick around at the end of the show for an interview with Burlington indie rock frontman Harrison Hsiang of The Couchsleepers. On the show: Prince Philip - not a nazi, but nazi adjacent Looser quarantine rules Matt's MLB rant Gov. Scott's infrastructure plan …
 
Classic Noir is the theme this week, but it may as well be "duplicitous dames". Matt liked Billy Wilder's "Double Indemnity" (1944) more than Adam, but they both felt the casting of the two main characters (Fred MacMurray and Barbara Stanwyck) was wrong. They were in agreement that costar Edward G. Robinson stole the show. "Detour" (1945) cost penn…
 
We start off with some beefs and some rants, but then settle into our regular groove. On today's show: Vaccine beefs BIPOC eligibility Easing restrictions Bad ideas for pension reform Homeless people need checks (and Turbo tax is awful) Vote Matt for Cannabis Board Fair Haven school shooter going free? Hoyt - alleged sex offender and the Streisand …
 
The theme this week is bad fathers. We wander through the New (old) West with Wim Wenders' Paris, Texas (1984). His hyper-focused tale of one man's struggle with what it means to be a father has a lot to say about how hard it is to actually care about another person. Tokyo Sonata (2008) gives us a quiet (but never boring) look inside gender roles, …
 
Well, the first segment was kinda serious, and then if you listen closely, I think you can tell when the brownies kicked in for some of the show members (medicinal, of course). On today's show: Looser bar restrictions in Vermont Vaccine shopping I have a pension solution...oh wait, no I don't Plant-based eateries EB-5 program aka money talks Its al…
 
Angels on Earth is the theme this week. Wim Wender's "Wings of Desire" is one of Matt's favorite films and Adam seemed to enjoy it too. Both agreed it was more like watching poetry than film. Kevin Smith's "Dogma" wasn't as good as 18 year old Adam once thought, but it has its moments. Matt Damon rocks as the avenging angel Loki. Matt thought it wa…
 
The orangutan jokes won't make sense unless you listen to the outtakes at the end. On today's show: Please stop attacking Asian people Front yard pile o' stuff July 4th, baby! Covid variants Mandatory vax We're getting new refugees....can we pick the country? UVM prof asked to resign....guessing he won't Let's thrown 84 million at state colleges UV…
 
Vengeance is the theme this week. The 2004 "Grand Jury Prize" winner at Cannes, "Oldboy"(2003) it is described by one critic as "a beautiful, blood splattered modern classic". We agree. Not for the squeamish, but definitely worth seeing. "A Promising Young Woman" (2020) introduces us to women who exacts revenge for a friend. Not as dark as we hoped…
