Is this Jim Carrey’s best serious role?
Would you wanna be in a serious relationship with Kate Winslet’s wacky character?
Can you believe the Hulk is in this?
Should a movie immediately be on your best list if you got a surprise handjob while watching it?
Tim Mingus joins host Steve Mazan to answer all these questions and many more. Steve hadn’t seen the movie in a few years but remembered it being in his personal top 10. Did rewatching it change that placement?
All is covered in this magical but hard to classify Charlie Kaufman/Michel Gondry film from 2004, #85 on IMDB “Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind”
MMC #87 “To Kill a Mockingbird”
The classic American Novel from Harper comes to the big screen! Can it possibly be better than the book?

Comedian Heath Harmison joins Steve at sea to discuss this and everything else “To Kill a Mockingbird”
Home of the Mazan Movie CLub–Chime in HERE!
Why is this movie titled “Amadeus”? Why use Mozart’s middle name? Why not “Mozart”? Why not “Wolfgang”? Hell, why not “Salieri”?
Milos Forman makes his 1st of two appearances on IMDB’s Top 100 list. Making a 2nd appearance is guest Reese Golchin who joins Steve and Denise Mazan live to discuss this 1984 Best Picture winner.
It won 8 Oscars including Picture, Director, Actor and Screenplay. But should it be in the Top 100 of all time?
Is the Irish critic injured somewhere? Do we have MMC members in the Philippines?
All these questions and way more are discussed on a Facebook Live edition of The Mazan Movie Club.

Sequels suck! Right?
Does this Pixar classic break the rules?
Actor/Improvisor Chris Duffy & his 11yr/old son Liam SKYPE in from the East Coast to talk about one of the best sequels ever with Steve & Denise Mazan. Is this THE best sequel ever? Is it the best Animated movie ever? Or not even the best Pixar film.
Is it possible to cry through a whole movie? What part got you?
Is Ken the best addition the toys? Did you own any of these toys?
All these questions are asked…and some even get answered.

Stanley Kubrick makes his 2nd appearance on the list…or is it his 2nd and 3rd because this is really two movies mushed into one? Do YOU like both halves?
The Irish Critic (Steve’s Mom) is in studio for the critique of this Kubrick masterpiece(?). Denise Mazan joins in too, fresh off a viewing of the 1987 Vietnam War movie.
Was Matthew Modine miscast? Was anyone ever more perfectly cast than R. Lee Ermey? How was Vincent D’Onofrio NOT nominated for an Oscar for this breakout role? Why in the hell are there so many cartoon characters in this war movie? Steve has a theory about that last one.
Love it or not, Kubrick gives those in studio and Mazan Movie Club members chiming in at home plenty to talk about. This episode dedicated to Mary-Jane Rottencrotch.

Have two better looking guys ever starred together in a movie than Robert Redford & Paul Newman in “The Sting”?
Are Newman & Redford the best male pairing ever on screen?
Is this the best heist/con-movie ever?
Comedian Cash Levy joins Denise Mazan and host Steve Mazan in discussing this 1973 classic that brings George Roy Hill back to direct his old friends Butch & Sundance. Is this re-pairing better than the first?
So many questions. Lots of answers and laughs from the guests and regular Mazan Movie Club members.

Is “2001” another of Kubrick’s masterpieces? Or a long, boring, tedious film? We’ve got feelings on both sides this week.
The Irish Critic has her most opinionated review yet. And Mazan Movie Club members chime in on all angles. But on the LIVE recording we’ve got comedians Lang Parker from Last Comic Standing, James P. Connolly from Sirius/XM and Sam Demaris who is one of “Funny or Die’s 15 Comics to Watch” all joining Steve from their comedy road trip.
What the hell is this movie about? Does it matter? Were the predictions dead on or way off? What’s up with that giant baby? Listen in and laugh along.
Our first musical! Dancer Alicia Stoner joins Steve & Denise Mazan to sing & tap our way thru 1952’s “Singin’ in the Rain.” It’s #93 on the IMDB Top Movie list…should it be higher? Is this the best musical of all time?
Mazan Movie Club members join in live as well as send in some critiques that we share “on-air.” Perhaps unsurprisingly everyone has a different favorite number in this movie…even our dog Kuma!
“When Harry Met Sally” “Clue” & “Grease” get thrown into the discussion, as well as how good looking Gene Kelly is. And how tall. Listen in & chime in.

The first animated movie on the list, 1995’s groundbreaking “Toy Story”! Denise Mazan joins Steve, along with lots of MMC members chiming in LIVE. Other firsts, sure to show up again, on the list: Tom Hanks, Pixar and a great song by Randy Newman.
Which toys did you have that were in the movie? Where are all the fathers in this movie? Were the toys pretending when Andy was with them, or when he wasn’t? Was Syd and his taste in Heavy Metal unfairly maligned? All these questions get answered. Kind of.
Is this animated masterpiece the 94th best movie ever? (HINT: Steve thinks it should be way higher)

Who better to join Steve in discussing this masterpiece of Neo-realism than one of the smartasses from TMZ, Comedian Brian McDaniel. Also, returning guest Comedian/Filmmaker Eric Toms gives us trivia and his take on why this movie is so damn good 70 years later. It’s 1948’s “The Bicycle Thieves” from Italian Director Vittorio De Sica.
The Irish Critic (Steve’s Mom) gives her thoughtful review and the live guests discuss the use of amateur actors, black & white, and if we got a happy ending or not. Would a bicycle lock have ruined this whole movie? Would it be called “The Segway Thieves” if it was made today. Listen in and find out.
Is this the 95th best movie ever? Chime in here: https://www.facebook.com/steve.mazan.1
