Fargo

A pregnant cop in Minneapolis unravels a plot a spun and then respun by three inept criminals.  Fargo is the most amazing film based on a true story that is not really a true story to have ever been made by the Coen Brothers!  Brandon Beardslee sits in one more time to help Biggs figure out how times "yah" was said, Paul Bunyon's mystical connection to the film, and how Frances McDormand's breast exploded.  And exactly how many pigs are in this film?

Raiders of the Lost Ark (1981)

There is no action film more beloved or influential than this Steven Spielberg film written by George Lucas and Lawrence Kasden. We jump into this classic and dish on exactly how many snakes are in the pit, what really happened with the infamous pistol in a swordfight, how it was almost rated R, the massive amounts of scene that became Temple of Doom and The Last Crusade, racism in the writer's room, Toht's machine gun arm, and so much more. Brandon Beardslee sits in again for this commentary that you don't necessarily need to watch the movie to follow along.

The Princess Bride (1987)

A grandfather reads his sick grandson a story about fencing, fighting, torture, revenge, giants, monsters, chases, escapes, true love, miracles.  It doesn't sound too bad?  Joining Biggs on this episode is Brandon Bear Beardslee of the Montucky Skies podcast in a commentary that you don't need to be watching the movie to enjoy.

The Day the Earth Stood Still (1951)

An alien comes to Earth with a crucial message to it's leaders.  The 1951 classic is one of the most influential sci-fi movies ever made.  We examine it's message, it's origins, and it's character's god complex in:  The Day the Earth Stood Still.  Joining Biggs this month is his father, Dennis Small, in a commentary track that you don't necessarily need to be watching the film with to enjoy.

Army of Darkness (1992)

Everyone's favorite S-Mart employee is sucked back to medieval times to do battle with demons armed only with a sword, shotgun, chainsaw, bionic hand, broken torch, Oldsmobile, and a book called Steam Plan in:  Army of Darkness.  This highly original (even though it's secretly a sequel) movie is our commentary track today that you do not need to watch the movie at the same time to follow.  Brandon Beardslee and Zac Lachenbruch sit it on this episode.

Rocky (1976)

Welcome to the first episode of Biggs on Film.  This is a podcast that acts as a commentary for films, but the film does not need to be watched to follow it.  Today Biggs covers the Best Picture of 1976.  A down and out Philly fighter who's a leg breaker for a loan shark is given an unexpected chance to fight for the heavy weight title in Rocky.
