  1. Beau and Sammi try to wade through Tim Blake Nelson's modern take on Othello, with mixed results. While this movie was very well done and very true-to-text, it left us wondering if Modern adaptations of the tragedies don't need to be a bit *les
  2. Sammi and Beau step up their art cinema game with Akira Kurosawa's 1957 masterfully take on MacBeth, 'Throne of Blood.'  Podcast Artwork by Salty Said Sweetly  
  3. Beau and Sammi discuss Joss Whedon's 2012 take on Much Ado About Nothing. While it may never dethrone the 90's version, this is a movie that is impossible to dislike thanks to it's sparkling cast of characters.   
  4. #Shakesyear continues with Kenneth Branagh's attempt to meld Shakespeare and 1930's Cinema in what was ultimately a wet pile of words, soundstages, and bizarre musical numbers. We should have loved it, given our fondness for the works of Baz Lu

  8. #Shakesyear continues as Beau and Sammi discuss the early 80's answer to Romeo & Juliet, Valley Girl! This movie won our hearts by featuring an incredibly young Nicholas Cage at his most adorable, the incredible face acting of Deborah Foreman,
  9. Beau and Sammi kick off #Shakesyear with a double-header viewing of Taming of the Shrew and it's contemporary counterpart, 10 Things I Hate About You. While Beau shares ex-boyfriend horror stories, Sammi can't say enough about the beauty of Hea
  10. Beau and Sammi head to the Great White North for a light-hearted take on Hamlet - yes, you read that right. Crack a beer, hoser. We're watching Strange Brew!
