Best Mall Movies - Mallrats

Jinxies: Snootchie Britches

May 19th, 2017 Episodes, Jinxies J

In 1995, Mallrats gave us all a snapshot and time capsule for what the experience of hanging out at all mall could be like. Sure, it was heightened through the Kevin Smith View Askew filter, but watching it now brings back memories of SunCoast Videos, pet stores, skating rinks, and unrequited loves. Q & J celebrate this shared #1 from our Top 5 Mall Movies…

And Other Stuff Too: Book-To-Movie Adaptations

May 5th, 2017 And Other Stuff Too J

Do you even read books, bro? You know, those things made of paper that used to be in libraries before Amazon and the Kindle were invented. Well, at High Five: The Podcast we love it when we can skip a book and just watch the movie instead (like we did in high school), but that doesn’t mean we excuse it when a movie adaptation of…

Best Coen Brothers Movies

Episode 28: The Coens Abide, Dude

Apr 28th, 2017 Episodes J

This is a true story. The events depicted in this podcast took place in a mysterious Writer’s Room in 2017. At the request of the hosts’ wives, the names have been changed. Out of respect for the brain-dead, the rest is presented exactly how it occurred. It’s a little-known, but true, fact that when jingle writers wrote the phrase “Double your pleasure, double your fun,”…

You can call them One Season Wonders or Single Season Superstars, just don’t call them late for dinner……or say they “got canned for a reason,” because these are the Top 5 One Season TV Series. On this episode, J & Q spend some time exploring why some of the best TV shows in history only lasted one glorious season (spoiler alert: most of the time…

Bill Murray

And Other Stuff Too: Bill Murray, Pt. 1 – The Legend

Apr 7th, 2017 And Other Stuff Too J

We have a rule never to get involved with possessed people (it’s really more of a guideline), but how can you rank the films of Bill Murray when everything he touches turns to cinematic gold? On High Five: The Podcast, we have such love for the man that we decided it was impossible and instead spent the hour simply discussing what makes Bill Murray so…

Denzel Washington

Episode 26: Denzel, Ma Belle

Mar 31st, 2017 Episodes J

If there’s anything we love at High Five: The Podcast, it’s long walks on the beach, a warm tray of Bagel Bites right out of the oven, and Denzel Washington. Once we get started talking about D-Wash (that’s what we call him because we’re on a better-than-first-name-basis), it’s hard to stop. On this very special episode, Q and J break down the Top 5 Denzel…

Dumb & Dumber

Jinxies: Mutt Cutts Jammies

Mar 24th, 2017 Episodes, Jinxies J

Few movies leave a lasting impression on kids of the 90s like Dumb & Dumber, and J & Q are no exception. You can guess that this episode is pretty much just them quoting lines and scenes of their shared #1 from the Top 5 90s Comedies episode, and you’d be right, but it’s oh, so much more than that (“Kick their ass, Seabass!”). During the…

T. S. Eliot once wrote that the world would end not with a bang, but a whimper. Mr. Eliot must have been an avid television watcher, because he was spot on about the quality of series finales for some of our favorite shows. On this episode, Q and J take that lesson and rank the Top 5 worst tv series finales from the greatest shows. These…
