Everything a man learned about love was from this great romcom starring Eddie Murphy. There are moments in a young man's life when it all makes sense. That was the release of Reginald Hudlin's BOOMERANG on July 1, 1992. Anything that followed, be it marriage or the birth of a child... not as good. We think guest Derek of The Grand Gesture will back…
 
The highest grossing film of 1984 is our first entry in the Mt. Rushmore of Eddie Murphy. In this particular instance we find ourselves shocked at the masses realizing a good thing immediately... and also the likability of Judge Reinhold as the straight man to the obviously more entertaining role of Axel Foley. In fact... most of the cops are surpr…
 
From Alfred Hitchcock to Woody Allen and finally something less controversial in TROPIC THUNDER. When changing formats it's always best to find something we can all agree on like the movie NORTH BY NORTHWEST and then be disagreeable for the entire conversation. The only thing we can agree on is that Javier Bardem is a great way to start a threesome…
 
This episode on SIN CITY is not only about style as substance... but also how what we consider substantive storytelling changes as we become scared old men shouting out clouds. Speaking of which we embrace a new President so that maybe we can get back to those carefree days of Mickey Rourke, Clive Owen and Bruce Willis essentially playing the same …
 
There are some things one can't just see past as a moviegoer. Like Dustin Hoffman running. And he runs a lot in MARATHON MAN. It's a problem. Enjoy!

For 2021 we implore you to make one New Year's resolution: DON'T HAVE KIDS. Just stop. Enjoy our episode on A COOL, DRY PLACE as Vince Vaughn did not learn that lesson and we bring in the great podcast SATURDAY THE 14TH as crucial evidence as to why children are THE WORST. Happy New Year! Support what we do with bonus content and early episodes on …
 
On Christmas Day 2020 we give you the holiday film that this year deserves: Doug Liman & John August's GO. We discuss the stars that were made (Melissa McCarthy gets her break in one scene of plot exposition) and those that weren't (still trying to figure out why Hollywood hates ginger men; actually we get it.) HOWEVER this being MARK AS PLAYED and…
 
We travel back to that very special time in a young man's life when he is... awakened... to the charms of Brittany Murphy and also CLUELESS. Your other host was already on to his first mid-life crisis and trying to understand the youth by learning new slang from kids named Alicia and Breckin. His name is Jairo and he's still trying to understand th…
 
For our Halloween special we... go back to the beach for the always seasonal fear of an irrational mayor trying to kill Americans in the name of saving the economy in JAWS. Speaking of things that terrify us! This could also serve as our Election Day special and the possibility that we have four more years of episodes on IDIOCRACY. I've never seen …
 
When you know you know. And apparently one of your hosts (his name is Jairo) who is a married man (I repeat, his name is Jairo) found love at first sight when seeing Jesse Eisenberg's boner at a pool party. Once again... this is all Jairo. However your other host did talk about ADVENTURELAND before and he did so on his other podcast PROJECTING FILM…
 
Having lived our lives as the out-of-focus guys in the podcast medium we are experts in feeling the pain of Jason Lee in ALMOST FAMOUS... but we also are keeping our eyes open for the possibility of nip slips. This is a show of hope! And it's also a podcast that highlights BETTER podcasts in COCKTAILS & CLASSICS and GENREVISION. All of our pain and…
 
One host will stop at nothing that every movie podcast is a TONY SCOTT podcast. This is one of those podcasts. Thankfully we also feature two better podcasts in FILM HOOLIGANS and MOVIE DATE NIGHT. Support what we do with bonus content and early episodes on Patreon Listen on iTunes/Podbean/Spotify Follow us on Facebook/Instagram/Twitter Hosts: @Tru…
 
We've talked about manic pixie dream girls (and boys!) this summer and the wasted talents of Blake Lively as a damsel in distress from SAVAGES... so now it's time for something good. GREAT, even. Of course that can't be lowly MARK AS PLAYED but what we can do is watch and talk about something great in Steven Spielberg's SAVING PRIVATE RYAN. Tom Han…
 
There are many movies that suffer from too much of a good thing... but it takes the rare talents of auteur Oliver Stone to present the world with a movie that somehow suffers from too much Blake Lively. A tragic skillset to have, Mr. Stone. We also present our tragic skillset of making one star rated podcasts (continue to rate and review on Apple P…
 
LA LA LAND is embarrassingly known for winning and then losing Best Picture at the Academy Awards but for one host that seems apt as he had forgotten how the film presents a dream... and then immediately crushes it. Repeatedly. Speaking of repeatedly, the other host despises Emma Stone and is a monster. You could enjoy that but more likely you will…
 
On this podcast we love nothing more than to talk about Brad Pitt. And thankfully there is another podcast centered around this great subject in THIS IS THE PITTS. That show and this one will be discussing the arrival of a new Hollywood star in an old-fashioned star-making vehicle of a film in LEGENDS OF THE FALL. And while we may see Mr. Ed Zwick'…
 
One host has his revenge for 500 DAYS OF SUMMER by raising the quirky stakes with a cast over overaged and oversexed camp counselors in WET HOT AMERICAN SUMMER. Thankfully for the other host he got to discover some great podcasts on the subjectivity of broad comedy in MOVIE DATERS and CARPOOL CRITICS. However on our podcast... much suffering that c…
 
One host has had enough of the other host's disgusting male gaze so he gives him the cold shower to stop this nonsense ONCE AND FOR ALL... The "cuteness" of Zooey Deschanel in 500 DAYS OF SUMMER. While this would cause any man to question the damage that movies have done to his real life relationships, thankfully we also have the great podcasts THE…
 
Even though one host only has one thing on the mind (spoiler alert: Julianne Moore) the chosen film this week of FROM DUSK TILL DAWN is a good example of a movie that has more than one thing in mind for its audience. This also won't be much of a spoiler for our dedicated listeners that we point out a couple of excellent podcasts in HEY, DO YOU REME…
 
One of your hosts dreamed of high school days as a young McDreamy on a lawnmower in Tucson and the other dreamed of never being exposed to that image. What follows is a shockingly pleasant conversation on CAN'T BUY ME LOVE and how what we want out of the high school experience changes the further we get from those days of landscaping and prostituti…
 
Fresh off the measurements for Mackenzie Davis in our TERMINATOR: DARK FATE episode we welcome Catherine Zeta-Jones to the Film Twitter Combine. But a funny thing happens on the way to objectifying fresh faces in old stories... and his name is Antonio Banderas. This leads to a conversation on the perhaps under appreciated THE MASK OF ZORRO from MAR…
 
This podcast is no longer topical... but this is close as it comes with back to back weeks on films from LAST YEAR. You may continue to count your blessings as we do a deep dive into the troubles of the TERMINATOR franchise which includes measuring Mackenzie Davis for the Film Twitter Combine and debating the most pleasurable way the sequels have d…
 
On this episode we have the awkward task of picking a fight with the AV Club in the school cafeteria as we dare to even ATTEMPT understanding of the acclaim for PORTRAIT OF A LADY ON FIRE. Thankfully we have two great podcasts to guide us in our discussion of expectations for enthusiasm in PODCAST OF A LADY ON FIRE and HAZEL & KATNISS & HARRY & STA…
 
A movie podcast can not do a themed month celebrating international films without mentioning the grandaddy of them all. The one and only Australian film known to American audiences. The cinematic treasure that THE CURB blogs about daily. And beloved by families all over for a glorious and gratuitous butt shot: CROCODILE DUNDEE. Thankfully we have t…
 
Like most movie podcasts (but not the fine people over at THE CINE-FILES and FLIXWATCHER) we enjoy a good session of complaining. If you don't believe us now might be the time to take advantage of our back catalogue but if you can't be bothered here's an episode on the great IN BRUGES and how we approach the art of nit-picking movies in the charmin…
 
In our continuing quest for one host to make the other uncomfortable one man is forced to watch THE FOREIGNER as Jackie Chan shows a different side of his on screen action persona. This doesn't stop your hosts from doing their usual amount of gloating and complaining but more importantly also recommending some great podcasts on the subject. THE MIX…
 
On this episode we lament the horrible life of rejection that Andy Garcia must have faced in his many roles of supporting other movie stars. Thankfully on this podcast we appreciate magnificent body hair... and also the acting of this great man. But for other insight into elevating great supporting players you may want to turn to the podcasts BALD …
 
In these troubled times we must put our faith in a drunken Anne Hathaway because that's an easier pill to swallow than trusting in your podcast co-host to steer you to a great movie in COLOSSAL. Since the other host of the show is writing these show notes, we'll just say they both are right on this strange monster movie. Two other podcasts that are…
 
At the time of this release there's a lot of self-reflection going on. A lot of time to think. A lot of time without new entertainment. Which means this very podcast finally has a willing audience (maybe). On this episode we take advantage of this pass in movie pop culture to revisit some old favorites and to do so we will follow the lead of much b…
 
Many will be disappointed with our return but thankfully we don't have the track record of Elisabeth Moss. On this episode Mike welcomes back Web Bist (previously found on our 40th anniversary episode for ALIEN) to not talk about the recent success of Ms. Moss in THE INVISIBLE MAN but last year's apparently painful failure for the director Alex Ros…
 
We can't deny it any longer. Our demographic is getting older. And it's fucking killing our show. To rectify this we decide to embrace it. So sit back and enjoy your old man's podcast for this Father's Day weekend as we try to see what the kids are into at the movies these days with two great podcasts in THIS HAD OSCAR BUZZ and F THIS MOVIE! Spoile…
 
As two world-renowned podcast hosts we are used to being stalked by our legion of fans. So consider this an ode to those adoring people of fine taste as we take a look at new to video GRETA and stalker films. Films that show that with great hustle and effort... you can become the genuine creep everyone always knew you were. Since we provide creepin…
 
On this episode two old men look forward to death, I mean winter, but not before one last round with the summer movie season. To help Jairo and Dave along through this time of very purple and very bald aliens, explosions, and a cartoon or three is this week's featured podcast FLASHBACK FLICKS. Make the wise choice by checking them out and enjoy you…
 
Something old (predating movie podcasts) on this episode along with something new as Web and Mike discuss the things that they learned and presumably misunderstood by approaching the 40th anniversary of Ridley Scott's classic ALIEN by listening to the 2003 cast and crew commentary track. Consider this the commentary track for a commentary track. Mu…
 
Hey, have you heard? The Academy Awards didn't make some people online very happy. Also have you heard our latest episode of MARK AS PLAYED? It never makes anyone happy. Take that, Oscars. Also host Andrew Pierce calls BLACKKKLANSMAN an unkickable puppy and co-host Michael Denniston wants GREEN BOOK haters to run for Congress. All of this informati…
 
We have a BIG announcement on this episode. Finally Jason Reitman has caught a break and will be taking over his father's legacy by continuing the GHOSTBUSTERS franchise! Meanwhile your hosts Andrew and Mike are the same stupid assholes leading the same stupid lives... by promoting better podcasts. In THE WEEKLY PLANET the girl power 2016 entry in …
 
It's that most wonderful time of the year again as cinephiles across the globe turn to the Golden Globes to retroactively dictate our tastes in film for 2018. Andddddd it looks like those of you who loved BOHEMIAN RHAPSODY (except for you Elsie Fisher) and GREEN BOOK were right in 2018 while every other moviegoer was a stupid asshole. The two stupi…
 
Like a lot of lesser filmmakers we are retreating into the world of animation to let our creative podcast juices run free. That's actually a really misleading negative statement for what was an attempt to look at the positive storytelling choices that can be made with animated films as seen in SPIDER-MAN: INTO THE SPIDER-VERSE. Along the way we dis…
 
Never one to abandon the podcast game (just ignore summer of 2018 for these show notes) MARK AS PLAYED is back with another episode and also back with a previous co-host. Dave Giannini of THE GRAND GESTURE returns to discuss the sequel to one of his favorite films of the last few years as CREED 2 arrives with a new director at the helm. We discuss …
 
Here at MARK AS PLAYED we got together over Thanksgiving and did something we haven't done in ages... say nice things about Netflix. And while the release of a new Coen Bros. joint certainly helps, we also have a couple of great movie podcasts to do the heavy lifting on singing the praises for this streaming titan. The always popular SLASH FILMCAST…
 
Thanksgiving is a time for giving thanks... and on MARK AS PLAYED it's also a time for the usual complaining. But this time it's for a good cause as we wonder if the services aimed at cinephiles are contributing to losing the communal aspect of cinema. To help us make our case we highlight two great movie podcasts on the subject with COMING OFF THE…
 
On this episode which we hope that you are streaming on EVERY POSSIBLE DEVICE, we talk about a failed movie streaming venture (unlike this one) called FilmStruck. Most people (the DOZENS reading these show notes) are probably to blame for not adding one more streaming service to their monthly bills but at least ONE of our hosts thinks that's okay. …
 
We aren't breaking any news on our latest episode on SOLO. Months later... STAR WARS fans are still miserable and we think we know why! Well actually we don't but we do recommend two other movie podcasts on this phenomena in BLOCKBUSTER MENTALITY and THE PLAYLIST PODCAST. Is this outrage of the current Star Wars Universe film offerings evidence of …
 
The world can't get enough of comic book movies, even (and perhaps especially) when those movies are kicking them in the nuts. DEADPOOL 2 continued the success of the first film in that everyone had a good old time letting the high school quarterback shove them in the locker... as long as you are in on the joke. We here at MARK AS PLAYED were proud…
 
We make all of our listeners (DOZENS) uncomfortable by talking about the seeming discomfort the online film community has with female sexuality as a topic for comedy with the likes of Melissa McCarthy in LIFE OF THE PARTY and Amy Schumer in... well seemingly anything she does these days. Being a delicate subject and the central premise of our show,…
 
ISLE OF DOGS opened to some criticism (we don't yet have the technology to measure how much, let's just say that there were tweets) about director Wes Anderson appropriating other cultures for his latest "comedy." We make a different accusation that the man is appropriating his earlier more successful works and we'd like to see him change things up…
 
We return from the dead... presumably much like a number of characters will do following the events of AVENGERS: INFINITY WAR. As a movie podcast on movie podcasts, we can't decide for ourselves how best to enjoy the Marvel Cinematic Universe when we know so much information about the plans for the characters before we even watch the film, so we re…
 
In this terrifying episode, Michael Denniston, host of SOBER CINEMA is forced to confront the words coming from inside his own podcast. Thankfully, he also presents a better listening option than co-host Jario's choice, with a clip from THE NEW FLESH discussing the latest Steven Soderbergh marketing/filmmaking gimmick with his iPhone shot UNSANE. T…
 
As a movie podcast that repackages other great movie podcasts to help illustrate our point on a topic, we know of what we speak when we discuss READY PLAYER ONE and PACIFIC RIM: UPRISING being repackaged ideas with a new coat of paint. The other (better) movie podcasts are MOVIE BS and HOW IS THIS MOVIE? Spoiler alert: we actually keep the complain…
 
On this episode we welcome all the hate tweets Film Twitter can muster as they protect Ava DuVernay's critical and box office disaster A WRINKLE IN TIME. This opens up a different approach to something film fans have wrangled with over, particularly over the last year, as we attempt to separate the art from the artist. Can being a fan of a particul…
