We like to think of ourselves as contenders, so for August and September, Sam and Will are doing a double review of On the Waterfront from director Elia Kazan and Rear Window from Alfred Hitchcock. Both films came out in 1954 and are thus celebrating 65 glorious years at the cinema.

Theme Music: “Rear Window Main Title” by Franz Waxman on the Rear Window Motion Picture Soundtrack.

Show Notes:

  • 00:00:00 – Introductions
  • 00:04:18 – Other movies we considered for August
  • 00:09:33 – On the Waterfront
  • 00:55:49 – Other movies we considered for September
  • 00:58:00 – Rear Window

Help us decide what to discuss for the month of October:

  • Mr. Smith Goes to Washington (1939)
  • The Texas Chainsaw Massacre (1974)
  • The Terminator (1984)
  • Once Upon A Time in America (1984)
  • Ed Wood (1994)
  • Pulp Fiction (1994)

Let us know which Extra Milestone you want us to settle on by commenting below.

    Pulp Fiction changed Sam’s life, but it may be over-analyzed I suggest Texas Chainsaw Massacre. The first time I saw that movie, in a midnight showing on campus, every time Leatherface appeared, a whole bunch of people in the audience held up toy chainsaws and pulled the trigger thereon, resulting in a roomful of adults playing with toy chainsaws making “rheee, rheee” sounds! Great fun.

  • Cory W. says:

    FINALLY. And two for the price of one! I vote for ED WOOD, with PULP FICTION as a close second.

  • steve says:

    Please please please talk about Ed Wood. I know Pulp Fiction will probably get picked but Ed Wood would be a great conversation considering this year’s selection of films.

  • The Chuck Stops Here says:

    My preferences:
    1. Terminator
    2. Texas Chainsaw Massacre
    3. Ed Wood
    4. Pulp Fiction

  • Brad Astra says:

    Pulp Fiction would be interesting, obviously, but I have to root for Mr. Smith Goes to Washington. I’ve always wanted to see it and this could be the excuse I need to finally request it at my library.

    My guess is that Jon is laying low after throwing a boxing match.
