99 from 99
Ep. 29 - Limbo

Ep. 29 - Limbo

June 15, 2019

David Strathairn in his tighty whities is an accurate but misleading way to sell John Sayles' LIMBO from the summer of 1999 but we hope we have your attention to give this film/episode a try. At least one of our hosts found a lot to like here and the other one really loved the closing song by Bruce Springsteen. Overall another win in the books for 99 FROM 99. Now click here:

Ep. 28 - Buena Vista Social Club and Instinct

Ep. 28 - Buena Vista Social Club and Instinct

June 5, 2019

Your culturally stunted movie podcast hosts so fear covering a documentary on a Cuban music revival in BUENA VISTA SOCIAL CLUB that they are the ONLY ones reviving DVD sales/rentals of the Anthony Hopkins and Cuba Gooding Jr. starring INSTINCT.

Because we are that damn good at what we do. Click here if you don't believe these show notes, which are basically the Bible:

Ep. 27 - Notting Hill

Ep. 27 - Notting Hill

June 3, 2019

The movie event from 1999 in 2019 is finally here. The film that may very well be the reason that one host agreed to produce 100 podcasts just as yet another excuse to bask in the glory of a classic romcom. Julia Roberts is at the peak of her movie star powers in Richard Curtis and Roger Michell's NOTTING HILL. This podcast can only go down from here, but keep clicking the links below!

Ep. 26 - Star Wars: Episode I - The Phantom Menace

Ep. 26 - Star Wars: Episode I - The Phantom Menace

May 31, 2019

This episode features a little known but much beloved film from an arthouse filmmaker who finally made good on his promise to tell a family melodrama in STAR WARS: EPISODE I - THE PHANTOM MENACE. One host finds George Lucas to be a tragic figure and the other tells him to wipe away his tears with billions of dollars. But both think this movie is fine. More hot takes here:

Ep. 25 - The Mummy

Ep. 25 - The Mummy

May 30, 2019

What Tom Cruise couldn't do... Brendan Fraser did back in 1999. His version of THE MUMMY (along with some other fine people like Rachel Weisz) provided the playbook of comedy and action that Marvel has used to great success in their cinematic universe. But this podcast isn't about the cinema hellscape that we currently live in. No! This was a far more innocent time. A time when Brendan Fraser could be a star. And no smartass podcasters could hurt him. Click here for those smartass podcasters:

Ep. 24 - The Winslow Boy

Ep. 24 - The Winslow Boy

May 29, 2019

Not a day has gone by in the twenty years since the release of David Mamet's THE WINSLOW BOY that a co-worker, a neighbor, or even someone in your own home has debated the merits of this particular case. That case would be of... THE WINSLOW BOY. So for this episode we present to you our version of the events (and we know you've heard many on practically every movie podcast) that transpired in... THE WINSLOW BOY. We know you are tired of it. But it had to be done. Just like clicking these links:

Ep. 23 - Entrapment

May 28, 2019

We put on our best catsuit and get the lighting just right for our laser show of an episode which unfortunately for one host features little sex and for the other host it's even more unfortunate that the selected feature film is ENTRAPMENT. What you have here are two very disappointed men... broadcasting to very dedicated but also equally disappointed listeners. Dozens of you! Click here now:

Ep. 22 - Pushing Tin

May 27, 2019

As if the stresses of producing the world's greatest podcast on COOKIE'S FORTUNE wasn't enough (twice no less!) on this episode we decided to tackle the world of flight controllers as presented in Mike Newell's PUSHING TIN. Starring John Cusack and Billy Bob Thornton as men who decide that having people's lives in their hands isn't enough to worry about so they decide to wife swap. This movie is fun!

Ep. 21 - Election

Ep. 21 - Election

May 24, 2019

We know everyone is always ready for not only electing our fine representatives but also the coverage that precedes it. Which is why the hero we need right now is Reese Witherspoon as The Great Tracy Flick in the 1999 film ELECTION. Along the way we reminisce on our high school days and the immense power of class president that slipped through our fingers. We are old. And we are dying. Please click on these links below:

Ep. 20 - Abre Los Ojos and Existenz

May 23, 2019

If four episodes in four days from 99 FROM 99 doesn't make you question reality then maybe our selected double feature will. In the original version of VANILLA SKY (OPEN YOUR EYES for us dumb Kentuckians) we find the same vain men that you are used to on this very podcast finding comeuppance in a mixture of heartbreak and Ted Williams pseudo-science. Taking that pseudo-science a step further in David Cronenberg's EXISTENZ we find video games where the controllers are made out of bone and mucus. Icky. Just like this shameless plug for our various outlets:
