American Beauty vs. The Sixth Sense vs. Fight Club
This week Super Time Computer Al sends our hosts to a year when there was an impeachment of a President, a school shooting rocked the country, and a viral web campaign was passing off fiction as truth. Clearly so much has changed since 1999. Along the way Jeff and Cory discuss one of the most influential years of their film appreciation, wonder why Hollywood loves the pairing of older males with much younger women as love interests, Cory has a message for Helen Mirren, Jeff runs us through the millennial renaissance of the edgy teen movie, and both are perplexed by some of the movies the Academy passed on this year. They add Man on the Moon and Fight Club to the list of nominees and run them all through their patented five finger rating system to find out if the Academy should Switch the Envelope.
