Debt to Cinema 100: 100 Rifles

Contrary to common belief, the longer you do something doesn’t make it easier to do. Join us for our second triple digit episode where I chronicle just how tiring certain screenings can be despite having fun moments. Burt Reynolds, Jim Brown, Raquel Welch, and Jerry Goldsmith’s score go a long way here, but this one’s a #DimeADozen (or 10 of them depending on who you ask).

Debt to Cinema 052: Shane

To celebrate an entire year of paying off our cinematic debts, Steve thought it would be cute to pick another Western. It was a great idea; however, this one doesn’t come close to our initial selection. Join us for a dismantling of a Best Picture nominee many have called “The Greatest Classic Western of all Time.”

Debt to Cinema 043: Heaven’s Gate

A running topic on the show, and in my life in general, is the battle between universal acclaim and general hatred. When so many people qualify a film as good, its close to impossible to have a dissenting opinion. However, when it comes to films such as Michael Cimino’s Heaven’s Gate, if everyone hates it, any critique is valid. Join us for this epitaph of a review where we share our conflicting views while trying to understand why this notoriously flopped so hard.
