As a bit of a house rule, the invited guests of the Cinephile Hissy Fit podcast, sponsored and supported by the Ruminations Radio Network, get two episodes and they pick the movies. The guest breaks any argument ties and aways get the first five-minute take. Last week, Joel Winstead closed out summer with Twister. This week, he’s here to catch a train and steal some money.
For their 127th episode, two investigative film critics, two disguise-worthy dads, and two sneezing teachers, Will Johnson and Don Shanahan, welcome back returning North Carolina-based guest Joel Winstead of Winstead Reviews and the And the Winner Was… Podcast. In his second visit to the third chair, Joel submitted one of his all-time favorite movies, namely the 1974 film The Taking of Pelham One Two Three starring Walther Matthau and Robert Shaw. The three lay out what makes this underseen classic a future action-thriller prototype for a whole generation of movies that would follow. Come for the shared challenge and stay for the mutual love and respect for the fun movies encapsulate. Enjoy our podcast!
