Movie Issues: Moonraker

With the James Bond 50th Anniversary Celebration going on right now the guys wanted to join in by watching one of the more infamous films of the series. We choose 1979s Moonraker – yes, it’s the one where Bond goes to space, proving that all long-running film franchises ultimately must embrace the void, Bond included.

Join us as Leland and Spooky try to understand why this Orson Wells-lookalike wants to destroy the world, and why the Bond girl didn’t change her name when she’s an undercover agent for the CIA – especially when your name is Goodhead. Join in as as we celebrate 50 years of the one and only James Bond.

Movie Issues: The Perks of Being a Wallflower

The Perks of Being a Wallflower is one of the best films you will see this year.

Based on the book of the same name, writer/director Stephen Chbosky has produced a great coming of age film. Every now and then a coming of age film comes along that is heralded for “defining a generation;” films like Rebel Without a Cause, Breakfast Club, Empire Records, Almost Famous, Can’t Hardly Wait, or Good Will Hunting. Drama or comedy, these films strike a chord with the audience long into their adulthood – maybe you had a crush on the leads, or maybe it really resonated with your experience as a confused adolescent. Maybe you just liked the music!

Whatever the reason, these movies stay with you. You’ll have late-night conversations about these modern classics of growing up with your friends, discussing the “Why”s and “Hows” of your future. Perks of Being a Wallflower is one of these movies.
