Episode 15: Stoned in the End Zone

This episode is up late? Well, that’s just, like, your opinion man! This week we review stoner classic The Big Lebowski as well as the football comedy remake The Longest Yard. Is Jared right, and do the two films represent the different styles of comedy that our hosts prefer? Or is he just a hipster music douchebag? Listen and find out! Also let us know what you think of the new logo for this episode!

So, about the ads…

You may have noticed we’re showing ads on the site now. It’s part of our test to see if we can make some money without begging you guys for cash. The show takes a lot of time and some money to keep going. We want to be able to give you all some great episodes, so if these ads help subsidize more trips to the theater, better equipment, etc. Then it’ll be worth it. Let us know what you think. Are these too obtrusive? Would text ads look better? What say you?

Does Oscar Have A Mustache?

With both a new house and a new baby in 2011, Justine and I didn’t have time to go out and see a whole lot of “grown-up movies”. Most of our moviegoing experiences were  decided by our two older boys and limited to Harry Potter and comic book movies. Not exactly films with “Acadamy Award winner” on their Wikipedia entry. That said, before the show tonight (and subsequent live tweeting:  @QuidPodQuo #DoesOscarHaveAMustache) we decided to try our luck at guessing the winners in the major categories.

Preamble to the Quid Pod Quo Constitution

My husband, Jared, and I are both very nerdy in our own ways and grew up in very different households.  We both love movies, however, one of the laments of our relationship is that we have VERY different taste in movies.  If it is slightly apocalyptic, chances are my husband loves it and I wouldn’t go near it with a ten foot pole.  But throw Channing Tatum in the cast and the roles are reversed.

In order to form a more perfect union, we decided to try and find some common movie ground.  To establish justice, we gave ourselves a rating system.  This way we both know the rules when submitting a movie for recommendation.  After the first attempt at this review system we decided to promote the general welfare and share it with all of you…because this was just too fucking funny not to.

These recordings are only our opinions and are not meant to be inflammatory.  All movies reviewed have been out for a while so hopefully no spoilers happen, but beware we do talk in length about the plots of the movies we review.  In case you haven’t noticed, foul language is also to be expected.  We are also parents of three boys, one of which is a new born so bare with us if there is occasional screaming or baby talk that erupts unexpectedly, as we frequently record while baby is napping.  Thanks and enjoy!
