#49 Psycho (1960)

October 2, 2022

Good Afternoon

What would you do if you were handed 40,000$ in cold hard cash? 

Buy a car? Buy a trip to Hawaii? Invest it all on Bitcoin?

Sure those are good ideas.

As long as you don't use it to secretly run away to start a new life and completely abandon your friends, family, and job. To marry a man in a different state. Making you take a long and tiring road trip to meet him. Forcing you to stop at a shady motel along the way where anyone can check in but no one checks out!

Today we learn exactly what happens in this particular scenario

So please join us as we explore the creative mind of the fabulous Mr. Alfred Hitchcock!

#48 Pinocchio

#48 Pinocchio

September 25, 2022

Well, how do?!

Today we have one humdinger of an episode!

We discuss BOTH live-action and animated Pinocchio movies.

How do they compare? What was done better? What was done worse?

Has Disney made a live-action remake that's as good as the original?

Let's see if Disney proved itself to be brave, honest, and unselfish.






#47 Zack Snyder’s Justice League

#47 Zack Snyder’s Justice League

September 18, 2022

The Snyder Cut has been released!

Yes, you are reading that right. Today we'll be talking about Zack Snyder's Justice League! In a podcast by two least likely DCEU fans. This movie is just too interesting to pass up. At first, considered to be a myth. It has now been willed into existence by Snyder fans around the world. So we have to get into it all. #ReleaseTheSnyderCut. The Whedon cut. How does this movie compare to the Avengers and the MCU? And what is the future of the DCEU now after a seemingly endless amount of drama behind the scenes? We don't exactly know.

But there's one thing we can say for sure...



#46 Can of Worms

#46 Can of Worms

September 11, 2022

Fellow citizens of the Galaxy!

This week we are opening the Can of Worms!

A day we were dreading for a long time. But if we want to continue the DCOM Dynasty, we must power through.

So what did we think of Can of Worms?

A movie from the '90s. 

About long-eyed, creepy teeth, short-legged, loafer-wearing, loud chewing, belch busting, harsh hacking, gas blasting, blob dripping, annoying little aliens.

So was it as bad as we thought it would be?

Or was it a pleasant surprise?

Let's find out!


#45 Labyrinth

#45 Labyrinth

September 4, 2022


Today we are visiting Goblin City.

A mysterious land with a giant castle at the center of a labyrinth. 

But what secrets does it hold?

A goblin king who grants wishes. 

Seemingly endless mazes.

Doors guarded by riddles.

Fantastical creatures who can be friends or foes.

But what does it all mean?

Well...we were never told

So it's up to us to theorize! 


#44 Romancing the Stone

#44 Romancing the Stone

August 28, 2022

Romancing the Stone!

An underrated romantic comedy adventure from the '80s?

A showcase of directorial genius by Robert Zemeckis?

A display of uniquely creative musical exploration by Alan Silvestri?


An okay way to pass some time on a weeknight?

The house of Elbow Nudge is divided!

Is this a near-perfect adventure movie worthy enough to be in a top 15?

Or is there room for improvement? Can it be rebooted? Can it be rewritten?

You decide!



#43 Grease + Song Rankings!

#43 Grease + Song Rankings!

August 21, 2022

This week we are back at East High!

No, wait...

Rydell High?!


This week Grease is the word!

But that won't stop us from making High School Musical comparisons. 

And while we're at it, Grease Live comparisons.

And the Grease play comparisons...

It's all here! There's a lot to talk about.

So how does this movie hold up? What's better or worse since we first saw it?

We also acknowledge the biggest questions about this movie.

Why did they cast grown adults to play teenage high schoolers? 

How in the world is this movie PG? Why did our parents show us this?

And of course, we end our conversation with our certified Elbow Nudge Song Rankings!


#42 A Fistful of Dollars

#42 A Fistful of Dollars

August 14, 2022


Today we are going back to the Old West!

A time of guns, blood, and Ponchos!

Our first Clint Eastwood movie here on Elbow Nudge.

A Fistful of Dollars, the movie that inspired many more western movies.

But did it inspire us? 

I'll say...maybe...not.

But it did leave us with some topics of discussion

Like what's up with the blood in this movie?

What's up with the audio dubbing in this movie?

What's up with the plot of this movie?

What makes it a classic?

Are spaghetti westerns "TRUE" westerns?

Thankfully we have a Texan on board to answer all these questions with expertise.

#41 The NeverEnding Story
#40 Bloodsport

#40 Bloodsport

July 31, 2022



Jean-Claude Van


Today we learn about the TRUE STORY of an unsung hero.
Or do we?
Before we talk about Bloodsport the movie, we have to dive deeper into the legend who inspired this movie to be made.
The Secret Man
The Ninja
The Undefeated Champion of Kumite
Frank Dux!
But are the stories true?
Is this the man that can punch faster than the blink of an eye?
Kick faster than a wild horse?
Or knock out dozens of men like bowling pins?
We'll let you decide...
Oh yeah and then we talk about the movie too.
Thanks for the movie recommendation, Josh!
