Silver Linings Playback 98 – Godfather Part III

Joel Murphy and Andy McIntyre watch maligned movies and find their silver linings. For the month of March, they are watching failed Oscar bait.

At last night’s Oscar ceremony, there was a 50-year tribute to The Godfather. Both that film and its sequel, Godfather Part II, won multiple Academy Awards, including Best Picture. However, Godfather Part III was not so lauded. Joel and Andy close out March by watching it.

Hobo Radio 587 – The Oscars aren’t good, everybody: HoboTrashcan’s Guide to the 2021 Academy Awards

Joel Murphy and Lars Periwinkle are joined once again by Molly Regan to share their thoughts on every major category in the 93rd annual Academy Awards ceremony (including all of the ones they definitely aren’t qualified to discuss, like cinematography).

It’s been a strange year for movies. With studios holding back on releasing their biggest films, there is a field full of unlikely contenders this time around. Will Hollywood take some chances and reward people they’d normally overlook? Probably not. But you’re going to watch anyway, so you might as well hype yourself up by listening to this extra-long episode.

This week’s music:

  • Intro – “Giddy Up” by Tahuna Breaks
  • End – “This Ain’t Hollywood” by Silence Is Sexy

This week, Joel Murphy and Lars Periwinkle share their thoughts on the 92nd annual Academy Awards, which were held this past Sunday. After voicing their disappointment over underwhelming slate of nominees on a recent show (including snubs for things like The Farewell, Knives Out, Midsommar, female directors in general and all of the actors in Parasite), they were pleasantly surprised to discover the Academy was shamed into actually picking the best nominees this year. Joel also shares his thoughts on all nine Best Picture nominees, which he and Molly recently finished watching.

This week’s music:

  • Intro – “Giddy Up” by Tahuna Breaks
  • End – “Trouble in Hollywood! (feat. CupcakKe)” by Mise Darling
