8 - Breaking Away (1979)

They’re gonna keep calling us Cutters. To them, it’s like a dirty word. To me, it’s just something else I never got a chance to be.
— Mike, Breaking Away

FIRST TIME VIEWERS: ANDREW, BETHANY, BROCK, JOE

Ey, this episode is...how you say?... molto bene! Alisa and Cheryl are as excited as a bicycle racer about to run with the Cinzano team, to share this long-time favorite movie with the rest of the crew! What do you get when you put Dennis Christopher, Dennis Quaid, Daniel Stern, and Jackie Earle Haley together for some of their earliest film work? What happens when a young, bicycle-obsessed Indiana man pretends he's Italian? How does the girl he's wooing react when he comes clean? Even more importantly, how do we react when Brock comes clean with us?

Grab some linguini or fettuccine, protect your special french fries, and get your wheels spinning for all the fun as we tell you what we thought of Breaking Away! Go, you Cutters, go!

7 - Close Encounters of the Third Kind

I know what this is. It means something. This is important.
— Roy Neary, Close Encounters of the Third Kind

FIRST TIME VIEWERS: JOE, ANDREW

Stop and be friendly, as we talk about one of the most well-known science fiction films ever created: Steven Spielberg's 1977 classic Close Encounters of the Third Kind. Have you ever seen someone whose skin was turned orange? Were they concerned about aliens in Mexico? Were they obsessed with things that didn't make any sense to you? They may have had close encounters of the first and second kind. But, the third kind? That's a very different matter.

So, get yourself a big plate of mashed potatoes, put on your gas mask, and get ready to communicate with us, as we tell you whether to get on the spaceship or go home to your family. We promise we'll try not to make a scene in front of the whole neighborhood.

IOML - 6 - The Good, the Bad and the Ugly

When you have to shoot, shoot. Don’t talk.
— Tuco Benedicto Pacifico Juan Maria Ramirez, The Good, the Bad and the Ugly

FIRST TIME VIEWERS: BETHANY, BROCK, CHERYL

Hey, Blondie, do you like Western movies? What about spaghetti Westerns? How about we combine Clint Eastwood, Eli Wallach and Lee Van Cleef with director Sergio Leone and composer Ennio Morricone? Interested? Well, we hid this gold. It's in a far off cemetery in a grave marked Arch Stanton...as far as you know.

We'll help you find it, but you've got do to the work. Because, see, in this world there's two kinds of people, my friend; those who record podcasts and those who listen. You listen. And when you do, we'll let you know whether we thought this movie was good, bad, or just plain ugly.

IOML - 5 - Jaws

Martin, it’s all psychological. You yell barracuda, everybody says, “Huh? What?” You yell shark, we’ve got a panic on our hands on the Fourth of July.
— Mayor Larry Vaughn, Jaws

FIRST TIME VIEWERS: MIKE MATOLA, BETHANY

We welcome our very first special guest to the show! Artist Mike Matola, creator of the amazing Line By Line posters and the man behind the It's On My List logo, had never seen the iconic 1975 Steven Spielberg film Jaws. So, we made sure to check it off his list!

Did Jaws cause him permanent psychological damage, like it did for certain other people on the show? Are we gonna need a bigger podcast to handle this discussion? Is Harry's hat really all that bad? Does this movie stand the test of time? And who's scarier: the shark, the Mayor, or the Islanders? Listen in, to find out!

IOML - 4 - The Matrix

You take the blue pill - the story ends, you wake up in your bed and believe whatever you want to believe. You take the red pill - you stay in Wonderland and I show you how deep the rabbit-hole goes.
— Morpheus, The Matrix

FIRST TIME VIEWERS: ALISA, CHERYL

We know you're out there. We can feel you now. We know that you're afraid...you're afraid of us. You're afraid of change. We don't know the future. We didn't come here to tell you how The Matrix is going to end... Actually, we take that back, we definitely came here to tell you how it's going to end.

No one can be told what The Matrix is. You have to see it for yourself. But, we'll take a shot at telling you, anyway. Is this movie even real? Is ignorance of The Matrix bliss? Could this podcast be nothing more than a dream? What color pills did we choose? The answers are in this episode and they're looking for you. They'll find you, if you want them to. Just plug in; all we're offering is the truth, nothing more.

IOML - 3 - Monty Python's Life of Brian

He’s not the Messiah. He’s a very naughty boy.
— Mandy Cohen (Brian's mother), Life of Brian

FIRST TIME VIEWERS: BETHANY, CHERYL, JOE

The holidays are fast approaching, so we thought we'd get you in the mood with the story of the Messiah. No, not THAT Messiah...a completely different one.

Nobody expects reverence at the church of Monty Python, particularly when they're satirizing the origins of religion. Brian Cohen isn't the Messiah you're familiar with, but who chooses Messiahs, anyway? How does outer space figure into all this? And what did the Romans ever do for us? Listen today, to find out if we were able to look on the bright side of Life of Brian!

All work and no play makes Jack a dull boy
— Jack Torrance, The Shining

FIRST TIME VIEWER: BETHANY

It's October. You want to hear about a scary movie. So, we've got one for you!

We were each isolated in our own hedge maze of terror, as we watched Stanley Kubrick's iconic film about the Torrance family's winter of discontent at the Overlook Hotel. Was the place really haunted? What exactly is "the shining"? Was Shelley Duvall a good actress? Can you get socks based on those amazing carpet designs? We won't leave you out in the cold, as we discuss our honest opinions of one of the most heavily referenced films in the history of pop culture.

It’s finally here! Our first episode! And to kick things off, we chose one of the most beloved and influential films ever made.

We each spent a marathon 4 hours watching Clark Gable and Vivien Leigh in an epic story of love, loss, slavery and the Civil War. Shall the South rise again? Will Scarlett ever be happy? Will Rhett ever give a damn? Do we give a damn? The opinions run hot as we give you our honest reactions to this groundbreaking adaptation of Margaret Mitchell’s story of the old South.
