Ep. 62 - The Limey

November 23, 2019

We are twenty years older and no more closer to being as cool as Terence Stamp in Steven Soderbergh's THE LIMEY. And neither are you. Enjoy!

Ep. 61 - Boys Don’t Cry

Ep. 61 - Boys Don’t Cry

November 22, 2019

You either die a progressive liberal breaking down barriers in film or you live long enough to be chased off college campuses as a horribly out of touch messenger of hate and ignorance. Along the way an Oscar was won for Hilary Swank but all Kimberly Peirce gets is our appreciation on this pretty depressing episode for BOYS DON'T CRY.

Ep. 60 - Happy, Texas and Mystery, Alaska

Ep. 60 - Happy, Texas and Mystery, Alaska

November 21, 2019

If you've always had the sneaking suspicion that the people watching movies at Sundance every year are assholes... well that's probably because some things never change. And HAPPY, TEXAS may be the most infamous example of a festival hit being an unmitigated disaster that nearly killed the career of Steve Zahn. Wait. According to Wikipedia this was his "breakout role." And was also a "box-office hit." A "cult classic?" If only our legion of fans would take up this cause to combat the fake news of yet another Jeremy Northam masterclass in suckdom. Alas, there are probably more important matters in these troubled times.

Such as Ron Eldard playing quite the cocksmith in MYSTERY, ALASKA. That's rich!

Ep. 59 - Three Kings

Ep. 59 - Three Kings

November 20, 2019

This podcast has done its half-assed best to give context to the idyllic theatrical experience of 1999 but we can't gloss over the fact that there were some troubled productions from that year. THREE KINGS may be known as the greatest performance Spike Jonze ever gave (don't @ us, JACKASS fans) but one can only imagine (if you are a decent human being) that director David O. Russell's lone memory of his breakout hit is the beating he received from Kentucky boy George Clooney. That is if he has any decency. Which he does not. Enjoy the rest of the discussion!

Ep. 58 - Mumford

Ep. 58 - Mumford

November 19, 2019

The troubled times we find ourselves in now can be traced back to America's rejection of Hollywood's attempt to make Loren Dean a star in Lawrence Kasdan's MUMFORD. Thankfully at least one of your hosts adored this adorable movie about nice people and all the nice lies they tell each other. Speaking of which listen to your least favorite host of 99 FROM 99 as he bullies the poor people of Mumford. Get those Mumford hashtags trending by clicking on the links below:

Ep. 57 - Double Jeopardy

Ep. 57 - Double Jeopardy

November 18, 2019

Ashley Judd can't be tried twice for killing her husband in 1999's fall hit DOUBLE JEOPARDY but your favorite podcast trapped in the past will put this Bruce Beresford thriller back on trial and end up sounding just as tired as Tommy Lee Jones does by the end of it. Fun!

Ep. 56 - Breakfast of Champions

Ep. 56 - Breakfast of Champions

November 3, 2019

Have you been waiting for a podcast on Bruce Willis in a failed Kurt Vonnegut adaptation? You have our apologies as this is probably your only option as we see just how far the combined ranting powers of Albert Finney and Nick Nolte can carry this box office and critical disaster from 1999.

Ep. 55 - American Beauty

Ep. 55 - American Beauty

September 18, 2019

And so we have arrived at the Best Picture of 1999. Thus ends the podcast.

Of course not! As one host raves about the merits of AMERICAN BEAUTY, the other is just wondering how misguided does a man have to be to no longer find Annette Bening amusing? Also notice how we are leading with one star in these show notes and not the other? Wellllll we get into that a bit at the top of the show. Then we have our "fun" again by debating if this is indeed the best that 1999 in film had to offer or maybe Ron Livingston wanting to watch Kung Fu already did it better. Let your voice be heard on such important matters at the links below!

Ep. 54 - Stigmata and Stir of Echoes

Ep. 54 - Stigmata and Stir of Echoes

September 17, 2019

Twenty years later we are still shocked at the opening weekend dominance of Patricia Arquette and Gabriel Byrne in STIGMATA, while Kevin Bacon bombed in STIR OF ECHOES as a Johnny-come-lately THE SIXTH SENSE on September 10, 1999. Since coming in with the very late takes is our podcast bread and butter we try to comfort Mr. Bacon in what has been a decades long matter of great shame to the man.

Ep. 53 - Teaching Mrs. Tingle and Music of the Heart

Ep. 53 - Teaching Mrs. Tingle and Music of the Heart

August 29, 2019

It's back to school for many a child listener of 99 FROM 99 and what better way to start the season than being anti-social and listening to their favorite hosts on their favorite podcast on everyone's favorite films of 1999: TEACHING MRS. TINGLE and MUSIC OF THE HEART. Apparently one of our hosts reads these show notes (and it's not the one who writes them; he's an alcoholic) and perhaps with the cynicism of these worthless words is the reason for the biggest twist of this failed experiment... his co-host actually liked one of these movies. You no longer care but please click these links:
