Keanu Reeves

We circulate nearly every popular film that Keanu Reeves has ever made... And, now that we have at least ONE tie-in to a library resource there, we're just going to go ahead and have an entire episode about Keanu Reeves, the Internet's Boyfriend: a fan's analysis of the various "eras" of his career...

Don’t Quote Me On That

Iconic? Well, we'll see... Jeff is performing lines from films, books (and..., inevitably, films adapted from books!) We have a panel of three contestants who will do their best to guess the source material of each quote. (Can you guess them all??) 


(Scary) Movies (But Also, Just MOVIES)

Today on the podcast, we're talking about movies! Specifically our DVDs and Blu-Rays, and the upcoming Movie Trivia Night we're hosting. But beyond that, we're just geeking out about the cinematic arts, from horror movies to rom-coms to soundtracks. Tune in, it's a wild ride.

Also discussed in this episode is the utterly terrifying music video for Genesis' "Land of Confusion."
