*extreme Jesse Pinkman voice* Ya, bitch, we're still on hiatus, but Christian and Armando couldn't resist the opportunity to talk about the Netflix movie epilogue for Breaking Bad, EL CAMINO. We dig into the original show (including thoughts after a recent rewatch), Better Call Saul, cameos, and unintentionally refer to the chemistry(!) between different characters multiple times. We also discuss pizza toppings, slippers, and Toy Story 4.
We're still taking a break from full length episodes, but (two of us) couldn't pass up the opportunity to discuss the latest Joaquin Phoenix vehicle. We spend most of our time reviewing the alternate take origin story for the classic villain, JOKER. We also discuss Premier League soccer, fantasy football, and Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix.
The crew is still on hiatus-ish.
Jericho is supposedly the busy one, but it's actually Armando who was unavailable so Christian and Jericho get together to do a meandering episode ostensibly about some of the films we've watched lately, including THE DEAD DON'T DIE and THE MOUNTAIN, among others. We also spend a good amount of time rambling about Todd Phillips, boogers, and Hot Pockets.
On the one hundred and forty-seventh episode of THE THIRD ACT PODCAST the crew is waffling. Our new release review is for Quentin Tarantino's Golden Age would-be epic, ONCE UPON A TIME IN HOLLYWOOD. We pair that with a sprawling documentary on the capitol of movies, LOS ANGELES PLAYS ITSELF. Finally, we conclude our Auteurography series on Oscar Micheaux and dig into his crime film, LYING LIPS. We also discuss lizard men, feet, and Bernie Sanders.
On the one hundred and forty-sixth episode of THE THIRD ACT PODCAST the Crew is drinking that hippie tea.
Our new release review is for the brightly-lit cult movie, MIDSOMMAR. We pair that with one of the most influential cult movies, THE WICKER MAN.

Our new release review is for the poetic film about Pier Paolo Pasolini's last day, PASOLINI. We pair that with a nefarious Dafoe performance in SHADOW OF A VAMPIRE. Finally for our Auteurography series on Oscar Micheaux we discuss his thematically rich film, GOD'S STEP CHILDREN. We also discuss Keanu Reeves, Aquaman, and Shrek.

We also discuss binge culture, cancel culture, and Game of Thrones (again).
For this bonus episode of THE THIRD ACT PODCAST, the crew is naked in Central Park. While Armando is away, Christian and Jericho check in on some new and old offerings from director Terry Gilliam. For the new film review we talk the oft-delayed adaptation of sorts, THE MAN WHO KILLED DON QUIXOTE. For the old film we dig into a unique film in his filmography, the comedy-drama about a shock jock and a homeless man, THE FISHER KING. We also discuss ogling, the Exorcist prequels and the Iron Throne.
On the one hundred and forty-second episode of THE THIRD ACT PODCAST the crew is trying to pass the whiff test. Our new release review is for the self destructive Elisabeth Moss showcase, HER SMELL.
