NIACW 193 Twilight (1998)




No sparkly vampires here, instead we get Paul Newman, Susan Sarandon, and Gene Hackman in a fun noir thriller.

The supporting cast is also formidable: Stockard Channing, James Garner, Reese Witherspoon, Live Schreiber, Giancarlo Esposito, Margo Martindale, John Spencer, and M. Emmet Walsh.

Note: This Eric and Drew only episode was recorded in December 2015 and inserted into the calendar this week due to minor illness. It’s also a bite sized ep but hey, sometimes that happens.

We’ll be back next week with a full-on three bro pod.

NIACW 191 A View To A Kill



Roger Moore’s last Bond.   Bro J’s fave, Drew thinks it lets Roger down, but Eric is neither shaken nor stirred.  They all love Roger Moore though.

Discussed during Bond: the Cold War, Iman vs Grace Jones, Eric questions Drew’s knowledge (at his peril), bestiality, CPAP, Sesame Street pratfalls, the DAK catalog, equine brucellosis, Andrew Stevens, Code Red (TV show), and 2010’s Mongolian Death Worm.

Housekeeping starts at approx. 1:08:30

Discussed during housekeeping: helicopter rides (not a euphemism), One Mississippi, Crazy Ex-Girlfriend, The Dorito Effect by Mark Schatzker, and Good Omens by Neil Gaiman and Terry Pratchett.

NIACW 190 U-571




The untimely death of Bill Paxton caused the Bros to tackle U-571, a light-weight WWII submarine movie.

The film isn’t great but the resulting discussion was fun.

Bill Paxton filmography starts at 28:30

Topics include: watching a movie in a theater by oneself, how a rousing score changes your movie, the historical accuracy of Jon Bon Jovi movies, 80’s New Wave music, the movie Hardware, the Academy Awards gaffe, new cars, daddy’s movie request, and the evils of Comcast
