Remembering Olivia de Havilland, Lady in a Cage

          S creen legend Olivia de Havilland died on July 26th, aged 104 . This week, Matt & Ashley look back at her life and career in a special episode. Then, we talk about one of her more harrowing roles, in 1964's dark and dramatic Lady in a Cage .

Midnight Madness, The Conversation

This week we go back in time and review a stone cold classic, and movie about a man who spies on people. And we have two of our regular guests joining us! First up is an all-night scavenger hunt that that's got an American Werewolf in London, Teen Wolf, and Pee-Wee Herman! Matt, Ashley and Garret discuss the 1980 romp. Then, Aaron joins us to dip in on a sobering 1974 film starring Gene Hackman, as a paranoid man who makes his living as a professional eavesdropper. It's a week of looking back here at Mashley at the Movies.

The Booksellers, Love Victor, The Guest

We've got three new podcasts this week! First, there's a new documentary, available on streaming, about the lives and livelihoods of antiquarian and second-hand booksellers. Then, we review a new series on Hulu about a high school guy navigating his home life and sexuality. Finally, we indulge in a totally bonkers thriller from 2014, starring a very fit Dan Stevens ( Downton Abbey) .

Mucho Mucho Amor, Palm Springs

This week's podcasts feature a documentary, and a romantic comedy with a time loop twist. First up, it's a new Netflix documentary about Puerto Rican entertainer Walter Mercado, who was hugely popular on Spanish-language television, conducting astrological readings. Then, we review the new movie on Hulu about two people who are stuck reliving the same day, over and over again.
