The Pod Bay Doors Podcast, Episode #84: To Be or Not To Be (1942)

This episode, Doug and Jerry celebrate Valentine’s Day and a birthday with Ernst Lubitsch’s To Be or Not to Be from 1942. It’s a brilliant, multi-layered romantic comedy that skewers Nazis and brilliantly showcases stars Carol Lombard (in her final film role) and Jack Benny (whose birthday is February 14th). It’s a true masterpiece but more than that, it’s extremely entertaining.

The Pod Bay Doors, Special Episode: The Day the Music Died (1959-2019)

This special episode of The Pod Bay Doors commemorates the 60th anniversary of The Day the Music Died, February 3rd, 1959, when rock ‘n’ roll luminaries Buddy Holly, Ritchie Valens and The Big Bopper died in a plane crash outside Clear Lake, Iowa. Join Doug and Jerry as they discuss the impact of this tremendous loss as well as the music of the three early rockers and their legacies as well as a conversation on The Buddy Holly Story (1978) and La Bamba (1987).

The Pod Bay Doors Podcast, Episode #82: The Set-Up (1949)

This week, Doug and Jerry wrap up their month-long journey into the world of boxing movies with a one-way ticket to Palookaville, or rather Paradise City, in Robert Wise’s 1949 masterpiece The Set-Up. They’ll carry you for two rounds, then in the third, you go down. That’s the set-up. Just don’t think you’re only one punch away from the big time, or you’ll never box again.

The Pod Bay Doors Podcast, Episode #81: The Rocky Sequels (1979-2006)

This week Jerry and Doug travel down an uneven road as they work their way through the very odd and very uneven world of the Rocky sequels from the excellent Rocky II to the silliness of Rocky III and the unbearable sludge of Rocky IV and V and finally emerging at the redemption of Rocky Balboa.  It’s got Mr. T, street fights, montages, James Brown, boxers versus wrestlers, a Russian Frankenstein and, of course Paulie’s love-bot.   This series has it all – and that ain’t good!

The Pod Bay Doors Podcast, Episode #80: Raging Bull (1980)

This week, Doug and Jerry look at boxing from another angle with Martin Scorsese’s masterpiece Raging Bull (1980). Raw power mixed with beauty and ferocity, this film is a testament to Scorsese’s ability to make a terrible person’s story compelling. Put on your gloves and go a few rounds, just don’t let Jake think you’ve slept with his wife.
