Reeled In: “Cocktail”
This week, Noah and Chance order up the 1988 Tom Cruise vehicle “Cocktail.” Never seen it? Somehow we hadn’t either, despite the fact that it features one of the brashest, most encompassing Cruise performances ever. He plays a showman bartender who twirls bottles, gyrates to ’80s hits, parties with the clientele, competes poisonously with his mentor, and fancies himself “the world’s last barman poet.” Hard to believe we found something to talk about in there.
our favorite movies
Be Reel is a movie reviewing & reappraising podcast hosted by Chance Solem-Pfeifer and Noah Ballard.
Each time out, we select three movies based around a genre and call up guests ranging from submarine captains to Oscar winners. Then, we rate the movies, weighing both technical quality and entertainment.
Noah and Chance are old friends who mostly respect each other’s opinions. Even though Chance is a fool and a traitor. Find their show presented at ThePlaylist.Net and follow them on Twitter for the latest on Noah’s literary agenting and Chance’s work in the Portland arts scene.
