We don't even summarize the film this time. It's just three dudes talking about what it means to be human for about an hour. Tom Reimann from Gamefully Unemployed stops by to drop some knowledge. What does it mean to be sentient? What does it mean to be human? What does it mean to be a bean? This episode is all thanks to our Pick the Flick patron Z…
 
BOLD is a podcast about race and justice in America, and a collaboration between Small Beans and Showing Up For Racial Justice, produced by White People 4 Black Lives.In the first of our three live interviews, our co-hosts Dahlia Ferlito and Ivette Alé talk with Eunisses Hernandez about her activism as a member of Just Leadership USA, which focuses…
 
Dan's back! Everybody Dan's back! Go Crazy! Alright, calm down.It's murder most foul! A cacophony of crime! A Monty Python of ending retcons! The three guys talk about 1985's Clue and how(s) it holds up and hows it don't for an hour and a half. Abe tries to get them to dissect the jokes. They're all into Tim Curry and Martin Mull (spoilers). You'll…
 
The third installment of our Fast and Furious deep dive comes with many epiphanies, like Sarah learning what drifting is. Both the hosts are pretty confident in their scoring of how fast this film is, but less so in if it's truly furious. Not a lot of violence in this one, as the franchise is starting to understand what it's broad appeal is and sta…
 
Paranorman is a movie from 2012 that sneakily deconstructs American traditionalism, suburbia, and consumerism. Abe is a film nerd who believes that film school dissections of children's animated films are a good use of ninety of your minutes. Let's get real though. That Jon Brion score, Laika's beautifully grotesque animation style, and some superb…
 
Abe and Michael discuss the themes and relevancy of 2007's The Mist. In the last episode, Stephen King took issue with the movie version of his tale. In this episode, he seems to approve of it. While we're all confined to the indoors in 2020, we think you'll all find something in this episode that will grab your attention, like so many-tentacled di…
 
Vanessa's back to help Michael and Abe unpack the dense time travel timeline of 2014's Predestination (starring Ethan Hawke). The gang asks: are all paradoxes in all time travel stories the same paradox? Why are a lot of seminal sci-fi writers thirsty and extremely problematic? Which two of the three podcasters are sleeping with each other? The las…
 
So this is how it works. The title of the episode is the episode prompt. How Maggie and Adam define it will be determined by them. In this episode, Maggie defines it as "not your favorite necessarily, but if you could surround yourself with it as if it were tangible you could do it." Adam defines it as "will continue to mean something to you or exp…
 
Michael and Adam sit down with soon-to-be doxxed David C Bell and discuss the only Naughty Dog production about pirates that hide crates on wheels on a deserted island: Uncharted 4. Does Nathan Drake have PTSD from all his murders and puzzle-based close calls? Could the treasure hunters leave the island and just return with stuff to make their job …
 
Like the lazy titular character, John Hughes kind of takes it easy after Act I of Ferris Bueller's Day Off. Adam runs down the directorial bag of tricks he employs in the first 25 minutes of the movie that seem to be non-existent in the rest of the movie. Now, it's a fantastic first act, it's just that he took two acts off. Abe finally makes that b…
 
Hot damn, a new podcast! It dawned on us that the most unlikely of pure friendships blossomed in the last few years between Big Beans Adam Ganser and Maggie Mae Fish. These two friendos are unexpectedly wholesome together and so we locked them in a room without only a few cans of food and told them to interview each other. Michael and I then broke …
 
Ah yes, we're here. The second installment of the series. Sarah learns that one of the tropes of this franchise is the obscene number of undercover agents each movie reveals. You choose which is more believable: felons freely bringing guns on planes or O'Conner's houseboat. Sarah gives her rundown of how fast and furious she's feeling after two fil…
 
Free Will? More like free William Shakespeare! I'd say it's 50/50 whether you liked that joke. If you do flip a coin and it ends up heads: we're very sorry, you may be in a simulation. You have the Pick the Flick tier to thank for this one yet again. Big shout out to Jason B. This time around we delve into the abstract Tom Stoppard Hamlet spin-off …
 
Remember when Chris Evans told us that babies taste the best? Remember when that director/writer won an Oscar for Best Picture? In this episode, we stamp our approval like so many bug protein bars. Special thanks to Karl P for suggesting this one through the Pick the Flick patreon tier! Support Small Beans and access Additional Content: https://www…
 
Michael Swaim looked in the mirror for 7 hours, called Sarah and Bridgett and demanded a second appearance on Rough Stuff. This episode is wild guys. You might want to lock your door, get real alone and real comfortable because it's about to get weirdly sexual in your immediate space. Come on the journey of demystifying why theater kids are so horn…
 
In 2020, making a mid-range budget film is nearly impossible. Unfortunately, Abe has brought his spreadsheets to examine 2012's Dredd and how its cult influenced the way we make non-Disney action-adventure blockbusters. Turns out a great idea is helpful but there's a few things you may need to check off your list before you jump into producing a fi…
 
We are joined by Alex Shifman, host of the science show "Science: The Show," once again. This time he gets the Sarah and Bridgett treatment. We get the low brow down low on the politics of farting, Skyline Chili, and an ad for Salt Water Pools brought to you by Sarah, for some reason. No conversation bursting with Americana is complete until you're…
 
It's all about family in The Fast & Furious franchise. Bridgett, a long-time admirer of the saga, wouldn't be doing her duty if she neglected to sit Sarah down and watch the entire run of the cinematic universe. We know what we're doing here at Small Beans so we included a microphone so you can listen in and witness the absolute madness. See you at…
 
Death to the Coen Brothers Brothers! Long live the Kings of King! The first episode of our new deep-dive podcast. Abe and Michael start their dissection of all things Stephen King with The Shining. We find out that Abe misunderstood the film for a very long time and Michael points out the usefulness of an ax in a hedge maze.Support Small Beans and …
 
Adam is here?! Adam is here! How has this not happened before? Ganser joins Michael and Abe to talk about the Polish-French-Swiss art house film, Three Colors: Red. It's like listening to three cavemen discover fire. Our grunts may seem confident, but inside we're terrified. So listen to this boat accident of a review.Support Small Beans and access…
 
BOLD is a podcast about race and justice in America, and a collaboration between Small Beans and Showing Up For Racial Justice, produced by White People 4 Black Lives.In the first episode of our second batch, our co-hosts Dahlia Ferlito and Ivette Ale discuss their signs, favorite music, and most importantly, how social action has affected them and…
 
Adam brings a new angle to the Paul Verhoeven's 1992 erotic thriller Basic Instinct, and it is indeed erotic. Removing layer after layer of why this cult classic is actually a meta-narrative about private dick films, he offers a fresh top-down perspective (like a ceiling-mounted fuck mirror). Abe is also there.Support Small Beans and access Additio…
 
This time Cody Johnston of Some More News and one-of-our-best-friends fame joins us to tackle the prophetic film Brazil, directed by Terry Gilliam. Please comment below if you agree or disagree with our review. "Sorry, I'm a bit of a stickler for paperwork."And thank you for your suggestion Pick-the-Flick patron sha cla (aka Shannon)! Hi, Jesse!Sup…
 
After it got the Switch treatment, the boys gab about the classic Link's Awakening. Adam contrasts it with Ocean's 11 and Michael compares it to Die Hard, but you'll have to listen! to find out how. Don't know about you, but I'm excited! I just threw a pot against the wall! Oh no! My favorite urn!Support Small Beans and access Additional Content: h…
 
Here's Michael, Abe, and Tom Reimann yappin' about the absolutely batshit insane movie "The Cook, The Thief, His Wife, and Her Lover" starring Michael Gambon and Helen Mirren. The gang determines it's all one elaborate shitting joke. Did we mention it is considered high art?A hearty shout-out to John Harty for using the Pick The Flick patreon tier …
 
Get your parenting tips from three comedians, two of which do not have children! Fortunately, Billy Wayne Davis, a parent, stops on by to inform us that he's got this whole parenting thing figured out. Spoiler: it's not how Viggo Mortensen raises his kids in this movie. It's not as cool, but it's probably better. And thank you for your suggestion P…
 
Abe takes the reigns this time to make the case that this jaunty, joust-y film is the jam. Why do we take old stories and dress them up in modern clothing? What's the point? Adam is also there. Sometimes Abe gets too excited and someone needs to settle him down a bit. Support Small Beans and access Additional Content: https://www.patreon.com/SmallB…
 
Michael and Abe conclude their examination of the Coen Brothers' films. They also rank them. They announce the topic of their next deep-dive series. Feels like they would record all that within two hours, maybe one and a half... Would that it were so simple.Support Small Beans and access Additional Content: https://www.patreon.com/SmallBeansSB Merc…
 
Adam, Michael, and Tom Reimann take us to Jedi Academy for the most recent Star Wars video game title and try to force grasp all the ways the game succeeds and fails. Michael derails the conversation and puts the entire Ewok species on notice. I mean, at the end of the day, who gives a shit about little teacup wookiees? Support Small Beans and acce…
 
Abe and Michael do their dance with the 2008 Israeli animated documentary film, its inspection of how we're hardwired to design our own past memories, and its thoughts on the nature of war. Tons of jokes in this one, folks. Shout out to Zac Schwartz for this month's Pick The Flick tier! You're a real M.V.Bean.Warning: Michael's recording software w…
 
Adam brings his director knowledge to explain the tactics Soderbergh uses to lure the viewer into complacency. It might be sly editing, pacing, or shot design. Abe chimes in every now and then to remind him it isn't any of that and the real culprit is demon spells and ghouls, probably.Support Small Beans and access Additional Content: https://www.p…
 
Michael and Abe sit down with Alex Shifman, co-host of Science! The Show, to discuss this 1979 Taiwanese fantasy horror mystery film. This film's climax involves a drum battle between a ghost and a holy man. So, I'm not convinced it's not a Slayer song.Support Small Beans and access Additional Content: https://www.patreon.com/SmallBeansSB Merch: ht…
 
Michael and Abe are joined by the inscrutable David Bell to discuss the body-horror film, The Fly (1986). This patron-exclusive came out around Thanksgiving, but it's just time for the holidays in the U.S. So, while you're lapping up all that turkey, ham, or veggie skin, remember to visualize when Brundle-Fly's face skin slides off his fly face. Bo…
 
Hang me O hang me, Michael and Abe spent two hours and fifteen minutes in this in-depth dissection of the Coen's Inside Llewyn Davis. We get real inside Llewyn Davis, real up in those insides. Guess what? It's full of cats, grief, and uncertainty.Support Small Beans and access Additional Content: https://www.patreon.com/SmallBeansSB Merch: https://…
 
You need to listen to this podcast or "I will stuff so much cotton wool down your fucking throat it'll come out your arse like the tail on a Playboy bunny." Michael and Abe sit down with Daniel O'Brien to discuss the political satire In The Loop. If it weren't full of soul-crushing insults, this 2009 political satire may feel a bit too close home s…
 
In this brand new podcast, Abe poses the question: why does award season prefer art house films but shy away from romantic comedies? He makes the case that the production and costume design teams of The Wedding Singer (1998) got robbed and Adam makes fun of Abe's use of "slaps" (as in "this podcast description slaps"). Description written by Abe Ep…
 
Two Americans chew some back bacon (the comedy and cultural relevance of 1983's Strange Brew and how it shaped their comedic sensibilities). For all its flaws, this retelling of Hamlet as the story of two hosers hunting for beer is arguably one of the best comedies ever made. So, grab some corn and um, uh- it's podcast time.Support Small Beans and …
 
Brandie Posey joins Sarah and Bridgett to discuss how lucky she is to not visually remember her past given her tumultuous wolf-loving history. They agree that dating is sometimes comparing men to Jean-Luc Picard's unimpeachable moral compass. This causes the man writing this description to feel very insecure.Support Small Beans and access Additiona…
 
Macaulay Culkin joins Abe and Michael to talk about his experience working on the film Party Monster. We discuss murderers, Marilyn Manson, and how Mac gets VIP treatment at drag clubs now.
