Netflix and Chill with Jim and Teal.The 1984 John Milius classic: Red Dawn

Play
Read more

We're all still stuck inside, right? Okay. So, who wants to Netflix and Chill with Jim and Teal? There ain't no party like a Netflix party, and Jim and Teal decided to take advantage of the latest in streaming technology to watch a film on Netflix and do their very first commentary.

Why did they decide on Red Dawn? Who knows. Maybe because it is an artifact from the 80s, the first PG13 film, and definitely a staple of Reagan-era coming-of-age movies. No matter the reason, Jim and Teal invite you to experience this film with them. 

How do you do this? Okay. First--go to Netflix and set your phasers on Red Dawn. Start the movie and pause. Find a way to play this episode on some speakers or headphones. When we say play on on the podcast, hit play on Netflix and you can experience the film in real-time with us.

Now, there is no movie audio on our podcast so you will experience pauses here and there, so if you want the full experience, make sure to play Red Dawn on your own. Is the commentary still enjoyable without watching the movie? Sure. Why not. Have a blast. We can't stop you.

Have fun! And hey, send us your thoughts on the episode to feedback@stuffweveseen.com We want to know if this is worth doing again, or was once enough!

Conan the Barbarian (1982) | John Milius

Read more
The setting of this fantasy-adventure based on Robert E. Howard's literary creations is the Hyborian Age, a fictional period invented by Howard, around 10,000 B.C. It is a time of magic, madmen, and mercenaries, and barbarians who kill before they end up killed. The film starts with Conan (Arnold Schwarzenegger) as a young lad in Cimmeria, orphaned at the hands of an evil snake cult-leader and a black-magic sorcerer named Thulsa Doom (James Earl Jones), and becomes a slave.  As he grows, he soon fights in an arena for sport and becomes very good at what he does.  Soon, he escapes and uses his freedom to seek revenge on the man responsible for the murder of his parents, with some help from new friends he meets along the way. Sandahl Bergman, Gerry Lopez, Mako, and Max Von Sydow co-star. John Milius directs. Milius and Oliver Stone script.

Episode 021 "Our Heroes: John Milius"

Conan, what is best in life? To crush your enemies, to see them driven before you, and to hear the lamentations of their women!

We take on the life and career of one of our heroes, the rugged individualist and Zen anarchist, John Milius. And Martin loves the smell of napalm in the morning.

And for further reading (although it is a little pricey) the guys recommend The Cinema of John Milius by Alfio Leotta from 2018 which goes deep into Milius' many contributions to modern American Cinema.

Shut The F*ck Up Donnie: All About Writer/Director John Milius

   Phillip is joined on this episode, by his good friend Colleen. They start the show by Phillip making some corrections from the previous show. Then they talk about Colleen's favorite movies and directors. They then jump into the topic, JOHN MILIUS. They discuss some facts and then they dive into 3 of his movies; Red Dawn, Conan the Barbarian, and Apocalypse Now. The two of them agree that Apocalypse Now does not deserve to be on any best lists. They discuss why John Milius may be an underrated writer/director. They also talk mythology in movies. Just to give you guys a little taste, John Milius wrote the Quint speech in Jaws. (To name one.) It is a good time, and a shorter than usual show.
