Remember, you’re fighting for this woman’s honour, which is probably more than she ever did.

War. What is it good for? Absolutely nothing? Well it does provide an amusing backdrop for Duck Soup, the Marx Brothers comedy classic. Yes, this week 101 Films takes a look at the harrowing dramatisation of the first Freedonia-Sylvania War.

Lewis and Ian discuss seeing gags for the first time, ask whether a democratic country can enforce the execution of cuckolded husbands, analyse the fine tradition of vaudeville, ponder how creepy Harpo is and disuss with all seriousness whether Lewis might be blacklisted as a communist.

Would you really feel any pity if one of those dots stopped moving forever?

The Third Man. The greatest British film ever made and the 57th best American film ever made. It also has the honour of being the 16th 101 Films You Should Have Seen (Probably) podcast. Who is The Third Man? Well you won’t find out here as Lewis and Ian go to great pains to not spoil the plot; instead they discuss Sir James Bond, Bernard Lee as Sgt. Paine, zithers getting us into dithers, Post-War Vienna being divided into Russian, American, French, British, Autobot and Decepticon sectors, and Zardoz-based youth gangs.

Leave the gun. Take the cannoli.

The Godfather. Probably one of the greatest films ever made. It has seeped into so much of popular culture that there are references to the film in everything from Star Wars: Episode III – Revenge of the Sith to The Rugrats Movie. So in this introduction to the latest 101 Films Podcast, the temptation is to make weak jokes and ‘hilariously’ misquote lines of dialogue. Well, surprisingly, that’s not going to happen here!

Instead we’ll just give you a simple overview of what Lewis and Ian talk about in Podcast 014: Marlon Brando’s performance, how fantastic the film is, Al Pacino being awesome, hats, Zardoz, the influence of gangster films on gangsters, Lewis’s Butterfly Puzzle and George Lucas. Also listen out for the brand new Trivia Quiz jingle! So c’mon, give it listen. Go on, it’s great. Really, listen, or we’ll make you an offer you can’t refuse… Ah damn it.

What if Elvis was still alive… and acted like Bruce Campbell?

Imagine if Elvis was secretly alive. Imagine if JFK was also secretly alive and he was in the same old people’s home as Elvis. And JFK had been dyed black. And they had to team up to fight an ancient Egyptian Mummy that was stealing souls. That’s an impressive imagination you’ve got there.

This week Lewis and Ian watch the very unusual but pretty good Bubba Ho-Tep. They discuss Bruce Campbell’s fantastic performance, Desperate Dan and his Cow Pies, Bruce Campbell’s great performance, bad scarab-based effects, how depressing old age can be, and just how impressive Bruce Campbell’s performance was. Bruce Campbell!
