We’re Making A Movie In This Movie
Noah and Chance watched three movies that, in their own ways, pull back some Hollywood veil. “Tropic Thunder” (2008) yells, shocks and offends its way to memorable moments of famous people doing insane things. Through a “sight” gag, Woody Allen’s “Hollywood Ending” (2002) is an old artist’s take on how the old studio system worked. And 2000’s “State and Main” takes the writer’s side in a story of seedy Hollywood meeting small-town America.

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.
