Drop whatever it is you're doing-I did-because I found the one guy on the planet who's never seen Law and Order. I mean, any Law and Order. My friend Dan hasn't seen Original series, SVU, Criminal Intent, nothing. Not an episode. I threw out the episode I had planned, I even threw out the regular format, and just dove straight into this television …
 
Stephen King month concludes with his personal favorite movie adaptation of his work: Stanley Kubrick's The Shining. This time, I'm the one who hasn't seen it- or haven't I? Justin and Ben will seek to determine just how much one person can be deemed to have "seen" a movie without ever actually sitting down to watch it. Most important of all, can a…
 
Happy Halloween, listeners! This year, we are honoring the world's most famous Mainer, Stephen King. First on the docket is Pet Sematary, and we're going deep on this one. Neither Dave nor Brian have read the book, nor have they seen the movie. This week they tackle the former, and next week they will explore the latter. Will these icons of King-ly…
 
Anime. The final frontier. Drew has seen Akira, of course. He's dabbled in a bit of Voltron. And who hasn't caught the odd episode of Sailor Moon? But today marks Drew's first true foray into the exciting, mad world of anime, as he begins season one of the tv show Attack on Titan. Will it live up to Dave's lofty hype? Part 1 - 0:00 to 27:50 Part 2 …
 
Season 4 begins with a bang. First-time guest Cody has never seen the 1974 neo-noir Chinatown. Is it good? Is it bad? (It's good! It's bad! It's good! It's bad!) Is it kinda like that episode of The Simpsons with the monorail? All of these questions (and more!) will be answered in this week's episode! Part 1 - 0:00 to 20:22 Part 2- 20:35 to 1:51:45…
 
Happy Pride! Justin steps in as host for guest Dave, who this week checks out Ang Lee's romantic drama Brokeback Mountain for the very first time. Has Dave figured out the entire film through cultural osmosis? Will the movie hold up on a second viewing for Justin? Will it live up to its enormous hype for Dave? All of these questions- and more!- are…
 
First-time guest Sam joins the pod to explore the late-90s time capsule that is Rush Hour. Does the movie feature Jackie Chan? Evil Brits? Scenes in Hong Kong? Most importantly, are there much better movies Sam should be watching? All of these questions and more are answered in this episode! Part 1 - 0:00 to 21:43 Part 2 - 21:56 to 1:31:01 betterla…
 
Oh man, we were totally going to release this episode yesterday in honor of 4/20 but, like, totally spaced. Well, [insert popular phrase here], here is our episode on the popular 2008 comedy, Step Brothers. Neither Drew nor I had seen it before. So we watched it and discussed our thoughts. Part 1 - 0:00 to 28:15 Part 2 - 28:28 to 1:45:42 betterlate…
 
Will returns so Dave can interrogate him on his progress through the deliciously diabolical- or is it diabolically delicious?- television program, Hannibal. Tell me, Will. Have you ever thought that a tv show could be so gorgeously gruesome? (Or is it gruesomely gorgeous?) Covering episodes 4 through 6. betterlatethanneverpod@gmail.com @BetterLate_…
 
Spring has sprung and that can only mean one thing: Sprang brake! Since the pandemic means everyone is stuck at home, this year we're bringing Spring Break to you! Faith has never seen Harmony Korine's 2012 cult classic, Spring Breakers, so Erin and Dave are swooping in to remedy the situation. Will the movie live up to Dave's relentless hyping? Wi…
 
Join Dave as he serves up the first three episodes of the gorgeously grisly television series Hannibal. Does the show live up to Will's expectations, fed as they are by the likes of Brian Cox and Anthony Hopkins? Or will it prove just another disappointing dish? Answers and more food puns await. Bon appetit. betterlatethanneverpod@gmail.com @Better…
 
My sister makes her podcast debut, as Josh and I join her in checking out this Molly Ringwald-starring John Hughes classic. Each of us has heard all our lives that we just gotta see this movie. (Also that there might be a character in it that hasn't aged well.) Does that all prove to be true? Part 1- 0:00 to 25:20 Part 2- 25:33 to 1:50:49 betterlat…
 
Happy Valentine's Day, listeners! What could be more romantic than snuggling up with your significant other to listen to a podcast about this 1989 John Cusack movie?? I'm genuinely asking, because I've never seen it before. Neither have Eric or Emily, so we take this opportunity to check it out for the first time. We're all pretty sure it's a roman…
 
Happy midsommar in midwinter listeners! First-time guest John joins Dave and Drew to experience this Swedish horror film everyone's been talking about lately. He's pretty sure it involves pagan stuff, maybe some flowers, or crying- Oh, but there's definitely a gnome! Watch us hypocritically blow way past the tight-ninety mark as we go in depth disc…
 
Happy New Year listeners! Start the new year off right with this excellent episode featuring a phenomenal frequent guest, Erin! She's never seen Predator. Will she get to the chopper? Only one way to find out! Part 1- 0:00 to 18:10 Part 2- 18:24 to 1:44:22 Darth Schwarzenegger video: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xh3Wveg4DMk betterlatethanneverpo…
 
Happy Holidays listeners! In what is now a Christmas tradition, Brian continues his exploration of the Gremlins franchise. Is Gremlins 2 the greatest sequel of all time? Spoiler alert: Yes. Part 1 - 0:00 to 18:45 Part 2 - 18:59 to 1:38:05 Key and Peele, Gremlins 2: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=x01l_jMhjVM betterlatethanneverpod@gmail.com @Better…
 
Happy Thanksgiving listeners! Let us send you into the long weekend with sweet content, as Faith dives head first into a tv show she's heard a lot about, but never seen before: Rick and Morty. Is there an inventor guy in a lab coat? Does the content of the show account for its rabid (and potentially toxic) fandom? Most important of all: will Rick a…
 
The podcast once again becomes book-based, as Dave introduces Will to Chinua Achebe's classic, Things Fall Apart. Will makes some predictions, but one thing he's sure of is that this book will have absolutely no disturbing parallels or resonances with modern day American society. Skip your homework by listening to this instead. Part 1: 0:00 to 14:4…
 
Once again, Happy Halloween dear listeners! Or is it? This week, Dave welcomes back Justin and Drew to discuss the... peculiar slasher sequel, Halloween 3: Season of the Witch. We've seen Halloween, how will our predictions hold up for this sure-to-be faithful third installment of the franchise? Download now and find out! Episode features new music…
 
Happy Halloween listeners! And I mean that literally this year, because we are doing an episode on John Carpenter's 1978 horror masterpiece that kickstarted the slasher genre, Halloween! Neither Josh nor Drew have seen this iconic horror film. Will it live up to their expectations? Is the killer's name Michael Myers, or Mike? Is he supernatural? He…
 
Season 3 begins with a classic. No longer content to simply force his friends to watch movies he likes, Dave now forces Dan and Will to read one of his all-time favorite books from his childhood. Does Ender's Game live up to Dave's extensive hyping? What's it about, anyway? It's like Starship Troopers for kids, right? There's a deadly version of Qu…
 
This episode is all about All About My Mother. Pedro Almodovar's 1999 film is pretty great. So great, in fact, that Dave thinks it will instantly become Erin's favorite movie of all time. Is he correct? Is Almodovar an auteur? Is this movie anything like the movie Looper? Download now and find out. Betterlatethanneverpod@gmail.com @BetterLate_Pod…
 
What better way to welcome Robyn to her first episode on the podcast than with a viewing of the blockbuster Broadway musical, Hamilton? Ironically, she's the only one of the group who'd actually seen it before. Nonetheless, we all learn a great deal on this episode: about history, about art, and just maybe, about ourselves? Long story short the pla…
 
Happy Pride everyone. I know it's July now, but it's only a day late. And technically this was recorded in June, so there it is. Anyway, in this episode, Dave and Drew check out 2015's Tangerine, a film about a couple of plucky young trans sex-workers out in LA on Christmas Eve in search of a pimp named Chester. betterlatethanneverpod@gmail.com; @B…
 
This episode is about Spike Lee's 1989 film Do the Right Thing. Given all that has been happening in the United States at the moment, releasing a podcast feels frivolous. But I thought that if I was going to put one out, at least it could be topical. Neither Will nor I had seen this film, and neither of us were entirely prepared for just how topica…
 
Will suggested this old black and white comedy called The Apartment, from 1960. I'd never seen it, but I'd heard good things (maybe Jack Lemmon's in it?), so I said "Sure!" Little did either of us know that this seemingly-superficial comedy had hidden depths, and a surprising amount to say about corporate power and the treatment of women in the Mad…
 
I found the one guy who still hadn't seen Titanic. That guy was Ian, and I made him watch it. All sorts of questions get answered on this podcast. Did the biggest movie of all time (circa 1997) live up to its big box office, or was it a letdown? Did Jack really crucify Rose to the front of the ship? Would Ian really abandon his wife and son to save…
 
In this episode, Dave and Drew explore a scary olde movie, Nosferatu from 1922. It's scary because it's so olde! Having never seen a silent film before, neither of us were sure what to do expect, but we had some guesses. There would be a monster man. The acting would be wildly theatrical. It would definitely star Bela Lugosi. Some of these guesses …
 
In a world turned upside-down, anything is possible. Specifically, in this case, that means Josh hosting Better Late than Never. This week, we flip the script, as Josh introduces Dave to one of his childhood favorites, Terry Gilliam's 1981 adventure epic, Time Bandits. Will this wacky caper live up to Josh's claims of quality, or will this be a cas…
 
Recorded remotely from secret underground lairs comes this week's episode, The French Connection with Tiffany and Brian. None of us have seen the film, but we're pretty sure we know what to expect: French people, definitely. And... Trains? Romance? Drugs? There's almost definitely a car chase. Alright, so we might not know what it's about, we do kn…
 
With our Oscars review over, it's back to our regular programming! This week, Josh joins me for the filling in of not one, but TWO major gaps in my cultural bona fides, as I finally see Akira Kurosawa's 1985 masterpiece, Ran. And though neither of us had seen the movie, I took things a step further, and caught up with the source material the film i…
 
Our Oscars catch-up comes to a close with the Best Picture winner, Bong Joon-ho's Parasite. Will, Erin and Faith take Dave and Eric to task for not having seen the film, but come on, is it really *that* good? Download now and find out. betterlatethanneverpod@gmail.com @BetterLate_PodBy betterlatethannever
 
A little bit of bonus content to get your weekend started right! After we finished recording our episode about Little Women, Emily, Will, Erin and I were still so engrossed in our feelings about the film that we just went right on talking about. Eventually, I decided to just throw the mics back on and record our slightly looser, more digressive dis…
 
Our Oscars roundup continues with a sojourn back to the 19th Century, as Erin, Emily and Will join Dave for a viewing of Greta Gerwig's adaptation of Louisa May Alcott's novel, Little Women. Questions abound this episode: Is the unconventional narrative structure effective? Is Erin more of a Jo or a Meg? And most critically of all: What would the M…
 
This week, Dave and Will encounter numerous dangers and obstacles en route to fulfilling their mission to see the World War I epic, 1917. Will the movie feature terrific cinematography? Will there be one woman in the movie, probably a French civilian? Will either of us cry? Tune in to find out how our predictions hold up! Speaking of predictions: S…
 
In this episode, Dave and Drew introduce first-time guest Kathleen to the 1999 teen-sex comedy American Pie! She knows it probably takes place at some kind of band camp, but what else does she know about the movie? And does it still hold up 20 years after it originally debuted? betterlatethanneverpod@gmail.com @BetterLate_Pod…
 
Happy New Year! Please enjoy this episode, released a day early so that you have something to listen to when you are hungover tomorrow. Many years ago, the idea for this podcast was born when I realized that my friend Eric- henceforth dubbed "Eric Two" for being the second Eric to actually appear on the pod- hadn't seen any movies. Now, forty somet…
 
Happy holidays listeners! For this year's Christmas-themed release, I introduced Brian to the most Christmasy movie that ever Christmased: Joe Dante's 1984 classic, Gremlins. Prior to watching, Brian takes a shot at answering the big questions: What are the rules related to these creatures again? Do they look like Baby Yoda? Isn't there a thing wit…
