Mamo #337: Porn Me King Call Vogel

Remember the days when a movie like Jack Ryan would come out, do whatever business it would do (or not do), and we would get together and analyze the project in depth in terms of why the audiences were (or weren't) responding to it? These aren't those days. A potpourri episode of Mamo ensues! Ryan! Bats/Supes! Marvel! Ebert! Armond! Time Bandits! And more.

Mamo #334: Twenty Fourteen

After a three-week food-and-blackout-fueled hiatus, Mamo returns! It's the first week of 2014 which means, naturally, it's time to close up shop on 2013 with our picks for the best films of the year. We also get in deep on the relative merits of Twelve Years a Slave and The Wolf of Wall Street, wax philosophical on whether films can ever truly be "numbered," and give some thought to Her and the state of science fiction.
