This week we've managed to get to the end of the 90s miniseries, and we are rounding it off with a whopper. Alexander Payne's Election, starring Matthew Broderick and Reese Witherspoon. A movie that has managed to land somewhat in the public zeitgeist after flopping in 1999. Satrying modern politics in the world of a mid-America high school election. We have our friend Paul Nadin on the show and we talk a lot about modern videogames, narrative and morality in games, and process of indie game development. We also talk trans narratives in 1999 movies and round it off with Phantom Menace talk.

1996 - SubUrbia

Our adventure through our 90s series of films we had never seen before continues.

This week we catch up with Austin, Texas native Richard Linklater with an early career film that barely exists in the world. SubUrbia, Starring Giovanni Ribisi, Parker Posey and Ajay Naidu, sounds like it should have everything you need for a classic GenX picture but we go into why this one just misses the mark. We hang out for 2 hours in a parking lot, listen to some sweet 90s indie rock, and talk the Frighteners and Cats for far too long.

1995 - Dead Presidents

The 90s miniseries continues! Exploring ten films from the nineties from our videotape backlog as we make our way to 

It's the Hughes Brothers sophomore picture with the ambitious Dead Presidents, with Larenz Tate, Keith David, Chris Tucker and Bokeem Woodbine. The film takes a look at how Black American veterans were treated after they returned from the Vietnam War with a backdrop to the civil rights uprisings in New York City? An ambitious project which still is a very debated by critics how successful it was. We also get into Ron Howard films, David Lean and we attempt out best George McFly laughs.
