What makes nostalgia?

Boy did we have a lot of ground to cover this week! Reviewing three films in one show as well as touching on a weeks worth of goings on in the world of film. Over the weekend we watched the new Tribe Called Quest documentary as well as the new Conan and Fright Night movies. You'll have to listen to find out which we thought was pretty good and which we thought was a stale turd. We also had a great discussion about what makes things "nostalgic" and the future for nostalgia in the digital age. This is surely a podcast not to be missed!

We heard music from the following films:
Ghostbusters 2 - Bobby Brown and New Edition (1989)
Beats Rhymes & Life - The Travels of a Tribe Called Quest - (2011)
Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets - John Williams (2002)
Lost in Translation - Various (2003)
Lost in Space (TV) - John Williams & others (1965)

Flag waiving patriotic madness.

Tonight's show was all about patriotic badassery. Granted, neither of us get off waiving flags around and calling crap in our caps macaroni, but we were definitely enjoying playing music from a bunch of films about secret military ops, one man armies, and other general elite squad goings on. All of this of course led up to our review of the new Captain America: The First Avenger film.

Rambo 2 - Jerry Goldsmith (1985)
Operation Crossbow - Ron Goodwin (1965)
Philadelphia Experiment - Ken Wannberg (1984)
Rex Steele Nazi Smasher - Ryan Shore (2004)
