In this episode we give you a "bundle pack" similar to when we did "3 Summer Movies", "3 Holiday Movies", and "3 Romantic Movies." This time it's all about those Netflix OG's...Also we give Lord Lyndon travel tips in advance of his trip to the States.
Good Netflix Original movies are few and far between but there are certainly some gems as we have previously discussed (Mudbound, The Fundamentals of Caring, Kodachrome). In this episode we give you 3 more worth considering for your movie night!
Cargo - Martin Freeman must carry precious cargo through the zombie infested Australian outback.
Anon - Clive Owen is a detective in a futuristic society where crime is nearly impossible since everyone's memories are recorded in real time. Amanda Seyfried is a human hacker and the number 1 suspect in a series of murders.
Gerald's Game - A suspenseful showing of a Stephen King book about a romantic getaway that takes a terrifying turn.
In this episode we talk Kodachrome and how it might be one of our favorite Netflix Original movies...though that might not be saying too much. We also talk about our favorite road trip movies...and ask Lyndon if roadtrips are even a thing in Europe.

Two of the things that have defined Down the Hall Podcast are the "deep find" movie night picks and also the several actors, directors, and writers we have had the pleasure of interviewing. This episode represents both of those things! We "Take Back Movie Night" with Dusky Paradise on Amazon Prime and we are joined by the Director and Writer, Gregory Kirchhoff. This film will catch you by surprise and Gregory is an incredibly interesting guest as he talks about the movie-making process!

So now that the Oscars are here, you heard about all of the Best Picture Nominees but are any of them actually worth seeing?? We still aim to help you save time and "Take Back Movie Night" but this time it is through the lens of ranking the Best Picture Nominees 10-1 (there were 9 but we cheated and added 1....shhh).
Also, we asked YOU what your "favorite movie of 2017 was that DID NOT get nominated." In this episode you will hear us reference several interviews we have done including Kurt Braunohler (The Big Sick), Hayden Szeto (The Edge of 17), and Paul Walter Hauser (I, Tonya). You can find those older episodes in our library and be sure to look for next weeks episode which is an interview with Sam Humphrey of The Greatest Showman!
Thanks to Jameson from Portland, the guys were able to watch and choose "Band of Robbers" as the Movie Night Pick of the Week! It is a DEEP Netflix find which is what Down the Hall is all about! Also in this episode it's Rodney vs Lyndon in "Band or Gang?" Plus we discuss YOUR answers to "Hollywood Bromances."
