Mamo #27: Say Goodbye To Hollywood

We took a little extra time bringing it to you, what with being so exhausted by our marathon session the last time out (50% of us lost our voice that night), but we're back again with an all new year ending smash up derby Mamo. Close out 2005 in style, won't you?

Mamo #26: Mumbo Jumbo

You want a big Mamo? A really big Mamo? A huge, gigantic, Kong-sized six-month-anniversary we're-gonna-talk-till-we're-blue-in-the-face Jumbo Mamo?

You got it!

Tonight we celebrate our half-centennial on the world wide web by talking all things Kong: the movie, the monkey, the grosses, the hype, the criticism, the new, the old... and of course, just what kind of a man it takes to make a film this good, and make it look like fun.

Mamo #25: Redstone vs. God

It's Mamo #25, and our charter mission to track the intersections between movies and popular culture leads us from the increasing conglomeratization of Hollywood (most recently exemplified by the Paramount purchase of Dreamworks, which might not have been a studio in the first place) to the attempts to sell Narnia as the next Passion of the Christ. Will the Jesus-lion scare off the faithful? Either way, you can't say we don't go the distance with our topic range here on Mamo!

mamo #24: Critic Proof

Aeon Flux Sux. Or so says Paramount, which found it of paramount importance to keep the film away from the nasty razor toothed critical community until after the film had opened. Does this ever work? And more importantly, does criticism matter anymore. Matt and Matt turn it all inwards and still find time to let everyone know why they're so jazzed about Kong in this, Mamo! episode 24.
