I’m a comedian now. But in my early 20’s I was a submariner in the U.S. Navy.  Life sure was different. I talk about that a bit on this week’s Mazan Movie Club since because the film is “Das Boot.”  Details below…

We got a real submariner for this show! Well, to be fair we have a real submariner for every show. Bubblehead & Host Steve Mazan watches “Das Boot” with the hilarious and insightful comedian Cash Levy.

Which was longer, WWII or the version of “Das Boot” Cash & Steve watched?

Who had it tougher, bubblehead Steve in his brand new Los Angeles Class Nuclear Submarine in Puerto Rico OR the German U-boat crew of U-96 in 1941?

How much rum can you put in a torpedo tube?

How amazing are Wolfgang Petersen and the captain Jurgen Prochnow?

All these questions are answered plus we get great commentary from MMC members and an unexpected review from the Irish Critic.

How do you feel about Ewoks? That probably gives us the answer to if you like this final installment in the original trilogy.

We did a live screening of “Return of the Jedi” in host Steve Mazan’s backyard… and then had a big group discussion with Denise Mazan, Lee Levine, Gary Cannon, Paul Morrissey, Steve Halasz, Heidi Llovett, Erica Mlot, Rick Ramos and Aaron Michael Marsh.

Does loving Ewoks make you a woman?

When did Boba Fett turn into Jack Tripper?

Can Lucas just take his damn hands off everything?

Can you ever have too much Death Star?

Should Vader be fat-shamed?

All these questions and more are covered on this week’s episode. With LOTS of opinions from Mazan Movie Club members like YOU thrown in.

Hey Cleveland! I’m coming back and bringing some laughs with me. I’ll be performing to raise money for autism research.

There’s also some golfing and eating to do. It’s August 12th in Parma.

I’ve got so many great memories of Cleveland and can’t wait to be back. Hope to see you all there!

Was Rosebud something sexier than a sled?

Does Steve’s new theory hold up?

Who’s more enjoyable–genius Orson Welles or drunk Orson Welles?

Comedian Phil Palisoul joins the club to discuss a movie he guesstimates he’s seen 100 times: “North By Northwest.” Surprise, he loves it! He also loves “Jaws” & “Tombstone” so we love him too.

Was Cary Grant still a hunk at 55? Was Eva Marie Saint a floozy in the late 50’s at age 33?

Was the ending cheesy OR was the whole movie cheesy?

Did Denise fly in a cropduster to school?

What’s up with all the alcohol in this movie?

Was Martin Landau gay in this movie? Was Hitch in drag in this movie?

If the dialogue is sooo good and snappy why was that little kid in the background plugging his ears?

We discuss all this and a whole lot more on this week’s “Mazan Movie Club”

Is this whole thing biblical?

How come no one cares about Mr. Blue?

What’s the best line on this movie?

Who shot first at the end? (HINT: it’s not Han)

Wow! Lots of chiming in from the Mazan Movie Club this week. Everyone seems to love this movie and think it should be way higher than #76. Dave Loughman, Rick Ramos and the Irish Critic join Steve & Denise as we try and find anything wrong with Braveheart.

Do we care about Mel Gibson’s off-screen personae?

Shoud Gibson be in the best director’s list with Kubrick, Spielberg, Scorcese, Wilder and others?

Was Mel too old to be playing Wallace in this movie?

Why the hell did Wallace have sex with the princess?

What IS the best line in this movie?

Do movies need to worry about historical accuracy?

All this and more is discussed on this week’s episode.
