In this episode, we’re joined by author-podcaster Beau North to discuss the 2009 family dramedy City Island. We talk bad Marlon Brando impressions, accents, secret smoking, feederism, and introduce a new term into the Predict-O-Cast lexicon that’s sure to capture the hearts and minds of everyone listening.

Find out more about Beau North (as well as purchase her books) at her website Her podcast Excessively Diverted: Modern Austen On-Screen (with co-host Sammi C) can be found on iTunes. Josh and Skinner were guests on the recent episode covering Scents & Sensibility and it’s a must-listen.

Beau will also be joining us on next week’s mini episode to pick our next movie for us.

We learned our lesson with Army Dog, so now we’re prepared for a movie to shake off the premise of its title at minute 11. Still, what ELSE could a movie called Deidra and Laney Rob a Train be about?

In our first foray into international cinema, we absolutely cannot stop talking about finger phones in The Avenging Fist. Wanna know what that is? Well, you have to listen (but it’s probably exactly what you’re thinking)! We also explore the history behind this film, and look at how it was originally supposed to be an adaptation of a video game but the filmmakers forgot to get the rights. But seriously, it’s all about the finger phone. Ring-ring-ring. “Hello?” “It’s Predict-O-Cast.”
