The Sound of Music (1965)

Ah, the dreaded musical!

Following a long layoff, the podcast returns from the depths of technical difficulties.  First, I briefly discuss a very interesting new book by Joe Jordan about Robert Wise, legendary Hollywood director, called Robert Wise: The Motion Pictures.

Then the Master Bo Bonner and I squabble over the merits of Wise’s classic musical, The Sound of Music, with an eye toward His Excellency Bishop Williamson’s famous letter.

The hills are again alive with the sound of podcasting.  Enjoy!

A Few Good Men (1992)

As you head into the weekend, what would be better than relaxing and meditating on code, honor, and loyalty with our podcast on 1992’s A Few Good Men?  Some might say this would have been more appropriate for LAST weekend, being Memorial Day and all, but those people have unrealistically high standards for an ad hoc operation like the Catholic Movie Guy Podcast.

Long a source of disagreement between myself and theTimMan, we present our cases on the pod: he attempts to nail the movie for high crimes against cinema, while I raise the affirmative defense of it holding the Intercontinental Cable Championship Belt.

Listen to make sense of the above, or merely be a good soldier and download regardless.
