You Made Me Watch This Episode Five

**SPOILERS FOR LOGAN!**

 

This week, we did our duties as movie consumers and watched the latest comic-book romp with Wolverine, Logan. Featuring such classic comic book tropes as: chronic pain leading to addiction! The increased militarization of our southern border! The fragility and unpredictability of aging! And how tough it is when you suddenly find out that you have a long-lost feral clone daughter who is being hunted by a shadowy tech conglomerate!

Okay, that last one was actually kind of comic-booky.

In this episode, Ed waxes rhapsodic about Westerns while Nicole wonders if a world full of mutants would be a Randian nightmare where the strong crush the weak. Comics! Yay!

(also, it was Junot Diaz Nicole was thinking about. Duh.)


You Made Me Watch This Episode Four

Today’s episode is part of a venerable You Made Me Watch This tradition, dating all the way back to the earliest days of Ed and Nicole’s courtship: martial arts movies!

Specifically the 1978 Shaw Brothers classic Crippled Avengers, a non-stop parade of 70s kung-fu delights. Nicole appreciates the bold disregard for all established rules of narrative progression while Ed reveals his childhood terror of chi-strikes. Neither of them can figure out how the son is firing those arm-darts.

You Made Me Watch This Episode Three

Episode Three is a his-and-hers double-header of The Red Turtle and The Autopsy of Jane Doe. One film is a disconcerting exercise in body horror with strange sexual politics and a lingering feeling of discomforting cruelty that dogs viewers long after the movie is done?and the other one is The Autopsy of Jane Doe!

Also: Nicole has some strong words for Brian Cox’s parenting style and Ed gets his whimsical foreign animated features confused. Is there a better way to usher in the new year?

You Made Me Watch This Episode Two

This is a special bonus episode, a We Made Us Watch This selection, if you will about 2016’s Rogue One. Spoiler alert: we liked it a lot! (Also, we will be spoiling everything). In this ep: Ed goes hard at Mr. Abrams and Nicole offers herself as a consultant for the rebel intelligence apparatus because clearly they could use some help.

You Made Me Watch This

A podcast about the cinematic compromises that make a marriage run smoothly. Every other week, writers (and noted married-people) Nicole M. Taylor and Edward Gauvin make each other watch stuff and then talk about the experience. It’s like couple’s therapy, except it doesn’t cost us money, no one is a licensed professional and sometimes it involves the movie Gremlins. Come watch with us!

YMMWT Episode One

Our inaugural episode is a “holiday-themed” “anthology” “horror” “film” called A Christmas Horror Story (2015) directed by Grant Harvey, Steven Hoban and Brett Sullivan.

With three “vignettes” and a Shatner-anchored wraparound story, this one gave us lots to talk about. Nicole has some serious questions for that basement-dwelling sex-ghost, Ed critiques the Krampus’ beefy physique and neither of us have any idea where any of this is happening. Happy holidays, y’all, try not to get disemboweled by a horn-ed Christmas monster!
