You’re A Real Dick, The Sea
Your ship’s nose may look majestic cutting it and it may invite one hell of an orchestral overture, but do not trifle with the sea. This week, we watched three disaster movies upon the waves. Noah and Chance hop right into marveling at Titanic (1997) and quoting a lot of Billy Zane lines. At 22:30, The Perfect Storm (2000) is far from a perfect movie, but only one of the hosts can forgive the chowdah accents and script. They close out at 34:15 with 1972’s The Poseidon Adventure, a ‘70s disaster hulk with an over-sized cast and some dark, outdated ideas on what should happen to its members. Bon voyage! Wear a life vest!
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.
