Charlie’s Angels: Full Throttle

Charlie's Angels returned in 2003...and so did Demi Moore. The superstar actress' Q-Score had fallen in the decade since her big hits Indecent Proposal and Ghost, but she was set to rise again as former Angel Madison Lee in this action sequel. Does she shine against then-box office champ Cameron Diaz? Does Moore even get enough screen time when squeezed into a cast with Bernie Mac, Crispin Glover, Justin Theroux, Robert Patrick, Shia LaBeouf, Luke Wilson, John Cleese, and Matt LeBlanc?  Get your Zass over here and listen now!

Taxi Driver - For Annual Subscribers

Join Jakob, Stuart, and Arnie in the cab this October as they take Patrons through Taxi Driver - one of Martin Scorsese’s most acclaimed films!  Is there a better way to beat insomnia than spending time with unhinged Travis Bickle (Robert DeNiro) as he plots to wash away politicians and pimps alike from the dirty streets of 1970s Times Square?  And will angel Cybill Shepherd, or a preteeen Jodie Foster in her first Oscar-nominated role, be the lucky girl in the backseat when all the shooting is over? Become a Patron and find out!

Joker

It’s Arthur Fleck, better known as Joker!  Before becoming Batman’s #1 nemesis, the Clown Prince of Crime was just a struggling stand-up comic doing his best to make the public smile on the mean streets of Gotham. Can Joaquin Phoenix convince the Now Playing hosts that heartless millionaires like mayoral candidate (and father of Bruce) Thomas Wanye are the true enemies of the people?  And is Hangover director Todd Phillips making a Scorsese inspired tragedy, or Trumpian comedy, out of this atypical DC Comics origin story?  Listen and find out!

I Am Legend - For Annual Subscribers

Good news! In the new Willennium, cancer has been cured. Bad news! New York City is now full of bloodthirsty Darkseekers who want to get jiggy with last man on earth Will Smith in the third telling of I Am Legend. Should the buff virologist spend less of his day doing pull-ups, deer hunting in Times Square, and watching Shrek, and put more energy towards reversing Krippin Virus?  Or is life in the Big Apple better when you only have to make conversation with a dog and a bunch of mannequins? Get your Now Playing fix when you become a Silver Level Donor.

Charlie’s Angels (2000)

"Girl Power!" The sentiment continues, but the look has changed dramatically since the era of Spice Girls and, this week's movie review, 2000's Charlie's Angels. Listen now as our hosts remember what feminism looked like--in an unzipped mechanic's jumpsuit--as Cameron Diaz, Drew Barrymore, and Lucy Liu update the Angels for a new millennium!
