It’s Whatcha Gonna Queue’s very special Oscar special! In honor of Hollywood’s most prestigious awards show (like that says much), Jim and Alex have ensured that every single film recommended in this week’s show has either been nominated for or won an Academy Award. What titles would those be? Well… [click to continue…]
Happy day after Valentine’s Day! How is everyone holding up? Not so good? Well, we’ve got the best cure for you – movies! For all you dudes and ladies who wish to put behind you the memories of last night’s burnt dinner, mixed up restaurant reservations or 24 hours spent in prison, Whatcha Gonna Queue may be just what the doctor/parole officer ordered! Wondering where the love went? So are we, as we use this episode to recommend some titles that aren’t as loved as they should be. [click to continue…]
What are everyone’s plans for Valentine’s Day? If they’re anything like Jim’s, then you’re not doing anything, which means you’ll have plenty of time to watch some great movies and eat an entire family’s worth of chocolate by yourself. Rather than wasting that time watching abysmal Hollywood rom-coms that make you wish you were either castrated or blind (or both), why not check out the titles Jim and Alex are recommending this week, which include movies they love as well as some love movies.

Why do remakes get such a bad rap? Probably because most of them suck. Most, but not at all. You see, Jim and Alex believe there are some truly exceptional remakes out there – like Let Me In, which came out today on DVD and Blu-ray – and they want to remake your thoughts on remakes by recommending some of their remakes. That makes sense, right? If the episode sucks, they can always just remake it. Onto the movies! [click to continue…]
You thought we were kidding, didn’t ya? Well, let me tell you, sir or madam, when Jim and Alex promise you a two-part Whatcha Gonna Queue episode, you better believe they’re going to deliver a two-part Whatcha Gonna Queue episode. The second part in question is, of course, Non-Exclusive Faith Month, Part 2 where the height-challenged Jew and the gangly Gentile bring you more recommendations to appease those insensitive jerks of every background.
As for the Non-Exclusive Faith movies?
- The Nightmare Before Christmas, directed by Henry Selick and NOT Tim Burton
- Joyeux Noel, directed by Christian Carion, whose name, along with his film title, you’re probably mispronouncing.
Whatcha Gonna Queue wishes every a happy and healthy holiday season no matter what crap you choose to watch over their recommendations! Tune in next week for the year end wrap up!
It’s almost Christmas! And Kwanzaa. And Hanukkah just ended. And New Years is right around the corner. You see, we here at Whatcha Gonna Queue realize that December is a month where peoples of all backgrounds have something to celebrate so in an effort to make sure we don’t get sued by anybody for favoritism, we’ve decided to celebrate them all this week (and next week) with our Non-Exclusive Faith Month.
And we begin excluding nobody by recommending these titles in For Your Consideration:
- The Hebrew Hammer, a romping Jewish parody of blaxploitation films, directed by Jonathan Kesselman
- What Dreams May Come, an exploration of the afterlife specific to no specific faith, directed by Vincent Ward
Tune in next week for Part 2, which also happens to be the last regular episode of WGQ for 2010 (in the format you’re used to)!
You and Whatcha Gonna Queue, we’re done professionally, man! No, that’s not true, we still love you professionally and appreciate that you’re watching. However, we’re taking a break from our normally amicable behavior to honor some jerks this week. Additionally, we reveal our most complicated (not saying much, really) production design of the year and talk about movies that we simultaneously nerd out over and that make us feel less nerdy. The recommended titles are:
- Inception (BWAAAAAHH), written and directed by Christopher Nolan
- Big Fan, directed by Robert Siegel
In regards to the aforementioned jerks, in For Your Consideration we look forward to next week’s release of The Fighter, directed by C-word-spouting David O. Russell and co-starring f-ing amateur-hating Christian Bale, by recommending our favorite films with temper tantrums. Those films are:
How much are you looking forward to Black Swan? Any answer less than “more than the birth of my own children” is unacceptable. We’re with you on that one, which is why we’ve dedicated this episode to the films of Brooklyn’s own, Darren Aronofsky. Also, “Whatcha Gonna Queue?” makes history with its very first TV recommendation, courtesy of Alex Rabinowitz. Aside from that, we’re still the same surly film nerds. [click to continue…]
