Episódios

  • Pubcast 85: Planes, Trains & Automobiles

    14/11/2022 Duração: 01h01min

    Brendan O'Neill is joined by Allison and Eric to break down this Thanksgiving classic from 80s icon, director John Hughes. Steve Martin and John Candy perfect (or maybe invent) the modern road trip comedy genre and create a rough template for another one of my favorites, Tommy Boy.

  • Pubcast 84: Heat

    10/09/2022 Duração: 01h47min

    Brendan O'Neill is joined by Allison and Rob to break down this great 1995 classic from director Michael Mann. This is the first time DeNiro and Pacino appeared in the same scene together - they were both in Godfather 2, but never in the same scene. Heat might be the pinnacle of Mann’s gritty 80s aesthetic and features one of the greatest shootouts in film history.

  • Pubcast 83: Predator

    06/09/2022 Duração: 01h25min

    Brendan O'Neill is joined by Allison and Eric to break down what might be Arnold Schwarzenegger's most iconic movie outside of the Terminator films: 1987s Predator. It's cheesy and over-the-top and features a classic monster/villain.

  • Pubcast 82: Clue

    10/08/2022 Duração: 01h29min

    Brendan O'Neill is joined by Allison and Eric to break the first(?) movie - or at least the funniest movie - based on a board game: Clue. This 1985 cult classic delivers great comedic performances with a gag-per-minute ratio to rival any comedy of the past 40 years.

  • Pubcast 81: Tommy Boy

    30/04/2022 Duração: 02h05min

    Allison, Rob and Ed join me to break down this 1990s classic starring Chris Farley and David Spade. This movie holds a special place for us, as we all went to Marquette University, as did Chris Farley…and the character Tommy Callahan even graduates from Marquette in the beginning of the movie. This movie, like a lot of the SNL movies, runs high on the jokes-per-minute scale, and this is arguably the funniest of all the Saturday Night Live movies. It’s extremely quotable and rewatchable, and really feels like a timeless comedy.

  • Pubcast 80: The Princess Bride

    08/03/2022 Duração: 01h27min

    Brendan O'Neill is joined by Allison and Eric to break down the 1987 fairy tale, The Princess Bride. A timeless classic, this comedy is accessible and fun and quotable and memorable, thanks to director Rob Reiner and stars Cary Elwes, Robin Wright, Mandy Patinkin, Andre the Giant and Wallace Shawn.

  • Pubcast 79: The Matrix

    14/12/2021 Duração: 01h22min

    Brendan O'Neill is joined by Allison and Eric to break down the most influential movie of the last 25 years: The Matrix. This 1999 sci-fi, cyberpunk classic introduced us to a new way of visual story telling, new special effects and new fight scene choreography. 

  • Pubcast 78: The Big Lebowski

    28/10/2021 Duração: 01h41min

    Allison, Rob and Patrick join Brendan O'Neill to break down the Coen brothers' 1998 masterpiece, The Big Lebowski. The characters - flawless. The dialogue - perfection. The performances - unforgettable. No mater how you slice it, this is a GREAT movie...despite the underwhelming box office performance. The Dude abides.

  • Pubcast 77: Rushmore

    19/10/2021 Duração: 01h40min

    Brendan O'Neill is joined by Allison, Eric and Jill to break down the Wes Anderson classic, Rushmore. Arguably his best movie and certainly his most accessible film, Rushmore solidifies Anderson's signature style, where every frame is centered and symmetrical, and the movie feels almost vintage as he leans into heightened nostalgia.

  • Pubcast 76: ‘No Time to Die‘ Review

    11/10/2021 Duração: 01h08min

    Allison and Eric join Brendan O'Neill for an emergency episode of the Pubcast. It's Daniel Craig's final outing as James Bond, and we've been waiting out a two-year delay for No Time to Die. Well, it's here, so we share our expectations right before we see this movie, and our reactions immediately afterward. Does No Time to Die hold up to the likes of Casino Royale and Skyfall? Listen to find out.

  • Pubcast 75: Stripes

    19/08/2021 Duração: 01h30min

    Allison and Eric join Brendan O'Neill as we welcome Patrick Keane to the Pubcast for the first time. Stripes remains a beloved 1980s comedy, and features Bill Murray continuing his brand of smart-ass characters previously seen on Saturday Night Live, Meatballs and, to some extent, in Caddyshack. Stripes is one of the most quotable movies from a very quotable decade, and introduced many of us to the genius of John Candy.

  • Pubcast 74: The Money Pit

    13/08/2021 Duração: 01h29min

    Allison, Eric, Rob and Rachel join Brendan O'Neill for our most contentious episode ever, as we break down The Money Pit. Tom Hanks is arguably at his comedic best (with all respect due to his smash hit Big), and Shelley Long used this movie as the springboard to leave her hit sitcom, Cheers. Like it, love it, or dare I say, hate it, The Money Pit has maybe the most memorable on-screen laugh in movie history.

  • Pubcast 73: Ghostbusters

    26/07/2021 Duração: 01h30min

    Allison and Eric join Brendan O'Neill to break down an 80s classic that somehow remains underrated. Ghostbusters was one of the first uber-quotable summer blockbusters that seemed to take over pop culture for the better part of a year...and did so based on the red hot trio of Bill Murray, Dan Aykroyd and Harold Ramis. Back off, man. I'm a scientist.

  • Pubcast 72: Mission: Impossible

    25/06/2021 Duração: 01h37min

    Allison and Eric join Brendan O'Neill to break down the 90s spy thriller, Mission: Impossible. This is the movie that spawned a franchise, thanks to Tom Cruise and a plot that moves along like part spy movie, part heist movie. 

  • Pubcast 71: Midnight Run

    14/06/2021 Duração: 01h38min

    Brendan O'Neill is joined by Allison and Rob to break down this classic buddy comedy, road trip movie - Midnight Run. Often overlooked but universally loved, Midnight Run gives us Charles Grodin and Robert De Niro at their best.

  • Pubcast 70: Indiana Jones and the Raiders of the Lost Ark

    07/05/2021 Duração: 02h16min

    Brendan O'Neill is joined by Allison, Eric and Rob to break down Indiana Jones and the Raiders of the Lost Ark to celebrate its 40th anniversary. We do a deep dive into the incredible details of this timeless classic from Steven Spielberg, George Lucas and Harrison Ford.

  • Pubcast 69: Spies Like Us

    21/04/2021 Duração: 01h31min

    Allison and Eric join Brendan O'Neill to discuss Spies Like Us. This Dan Aykroyd and Chevy Chase comedy from 1985 isn't as well-regarded as classics like Stripes, but it's packed with just as many (maybe more) laughs and holds up surprisingly well 35 years later.

  • Pubcast 68: Ace Ventura: Pet Detective

    23/03/2021 Duração: 01h58min

    Allison, Eric, Rob and Rachel join Brendan O'Neill to break down 1994's Ace Ventura: Pet Detective. It's a classic from early in Jim Carrey's career and kicked off a string of movies that shot him to the top of the highest-paid actor list. This movie is just as funny as it was when it first came out, so check out our glowing discussion and laugh along with us.

  • Pubcast 67: The Snyder Cut Reaction

    22/03/2021 Duração: 01h12min

    Eric and Allison join Brendan O'Neill to discuss our initial reactions to The Snyder Cut on HBO Max. We talk about what worked, what didn't and what this new 4-hour version of Justice League might mean for streaming services in the future.

  • Pubcast 66: The Quiet Man

    11/03/2021 Duração: 01h38min

    Allison and Eric join Brendan O'Neill to break down The Quiet Man, a 1952 classic from director John Ford and starring John Wayne and Maureen O'Hara. This is a charming, funny, picturesque movie that is perfect for the days leading up to St. Patrick's Day. Slainte!
