IIFR E112: Bridget Jones’s Diary

December 8, 2022

It's almost New Year's where we make resolutions to better ourselves.  Well, our podders thought WWBJD and said F**k it, I like me just how I am, so I'm not changing s**t!  That's right, we just watched Bridget Jones's Diary.  So double check the party invite on the dress code, keep your Texas drawl in check, and get ready for two British dudes to straight up murder each other over you.  Also, who knew there was an extra S after Jones'?  Silly British people!

IIFR E111: Trading Places

IIFR E111: Trading Places

December 1, 2022

It's Christmastime so we need to find out who is naughty and nice AND whether they got that way through nature or nurture. For research purposes, our Podders watched Trading Places.  So brush up on how commodity markets work, throw some salmon down your shirt, and do a quick google search if your holiday costume is culturally appropriate (if you are currently Asking Jeeves, just go ahead and change!).  Now, jump on that party train!!!!!!

The leaves are falling, turkeys are basting, and the world has soccer fever (and probably a few other things).  That's right it's the World Cup so we watched Victory! You know, that world War II prison escape movie.  No, not that one.  We're talking about the one with Pelé, Batman's butler, and Rocky Balboa.  So make your best paper mâché dummy and slide tackle your way to freedom. Victoire!!!!!

IIFR E109: Object of My Affection

IIFR E109: Object of My Affection

November 11, 2022

Roommates am I right? Always leaving dirty dishes in the sink, playing their rock and roll music too loud, and making you raise a child with them.  Yup, we watched Object of My Affection.  So cram yourself into a spacious Brooklyn apartment with J-Anis and P-Rudd, and see if these BFFs will they or won't they.  Don't forget your dancing eye patch!

November 4, 2022

Just when you thought you were done with Halloween, they pull you right back in.  Put on your bunny masks, our podders watched Donnie Darko.  So throw on your Sparkle Motion sweatshirt, learn some fun new ways to curse, and get ready for a long drawn out convo on time travel just like your college boyfriend used to have at like 3:00 AM.  (Come on Chaz, some of us have class in the morning!)  Also, let's figure out the wrong way to pronounce Jenna Malone's name.  Spoiler it rhymes with Balogna. 

IIFR E107: Poltergeist

IIFR E107: Poltergeist

October 28, 2022

It's peak spooky season y'all. So our podders dove into their TV's to a time when scary movies were made for kids!  That's right we watched Poltergeist.  So check and see if you have a light sensitivity (seriously this movie is sponsored by 300 watt strobe lights), check the expire date on your fridge meats, and buy a kid a scary clown.  Every kid needs a scary clown in their bedroom.  They're here!!!!!

IIFR E106: Hocus Pocus

IIFR E106: Hocus Pocus

October 20, 2022

Brooms are in the air, y'all!  To celebrate, our podders watched Hocus Pocus.  So, throw some moths in your mouth, head on down to city hall for that all night rager, and watch out for those child murdering witches.  Woo-hoo, witchy woman see how high she flies. 

IIFR E105: Interview with The Vampire

IIFR E105: Interview with The Vampire

October 17, 2022

It's spooky season so our podders got out their tape recorders and watched Interview with The Vampire: The Vampire Chronicles.  So bust out your best lacy shirt, mix up a rat smoothie, and put on a theater performance to save the vampire rec center.  Oh and don't forget to let your hair grow into luscious locks.  It's the vampire way!!

IIFR E104: Bachelor Party

IIFR E104: Bachelor Party

October 7, 2022

Now that we are all getting our super booster shots, it is time to par-tay.  Of course, our podders have forgotten how so they watched Bachelor Party.  Let's join multiple Oscar winner and all around great guy, Tom Hanks, as he teaches us how attempted murder, drugs, prostitutes, donkeys, offensive racial stereotypes, etcetera are all important ingredients to the perfect party.  Upon reflection, maybe Tom was trying to teach us what not to do.  Regardless, you can never go wrong with a live band.  Alligator!!!!!!

Wow, in case you didn't notice, the Is It for REEL juggernaut has watched 100 movies (Our lazy editor barely noticed.  Hence this is late!).  To commemorate, our wonderful art director put together a trivia contest to see if our brave Podders and our brave Listeners were paying attention or just phoning it in.  So grab your phones, strap on your memory hat, and get a lint brushes because we've got some smoking jackets for you.  Happy 100!!!
