Michael Carafa and The Shakedown's Tyler Mertens discuss 'The Birth of a Nation' (0:30) and its surprising amount of racism. Then we talk about the silent Dracula ripoff, 'Nosferatu' (12:48), of SpongeBob Squarepants fame. We wrap up our inaugural episode with 'Metropolis' (24:30), a haunting sci-fi film about artificial intelligence.
How many times have you been told “you gotta watch” some movie? And while it seemed interesting, you still haven’t gotten around to watching it. I’ll tell you how many times that’s happened to me. 300.
I'm Michael Carafa and from Citizen Kane to Blade Runner I’m watching them all, plus a few classics worth re-watching. Each week I'll sit down to recap three "must see" movies with Tyler Mertens in under ten-minutes each so you can take them off your "gotta watch" list.
So subscribe to our podcast and delete your watch list, Tyler and I will handle this for you.
