Our Favorite Movies Vol. 4: Joey’s Key Party Pick of ‘The Ice Storm’

The Cooler Gang reviews the latest entry in the Our Favorite Movies series, Joey’s Volume 4 pick is Ang Lee’s 1997 film The Ice Storm. Plus, we cover all the news over Roseanne and Arrested Development.

This week’s main event is Joey’s Volume 4 entry of the Our Favorite Movies series: Ang Lee’s 1997 The Ice Storm. Based on the novel by Rick Moody, The Ice Storm has a bevy of great actors being miserable yet sexually active in 1973. We’ll talk about why this is one of Joey’s favorite movies and what the film is trying to say about the family unit. Then, we’ll talk about why Oscar politely declined his invitation to Lee’s key party. 

TV tidbits ends up a fascinating entry this week. First up, Arrested Development is back, and along with it co-star Jeffrey Tambor. But not so fast folks! Jessica Walter has a lot to say about her male co-stars and their treatment of her. We’ll talk about what she had to say and whether or not that impacts any tentative Emmy credibility Season 5 has. Then, in the main event, ABC today announced that Roseanne, the smash hit revival, would be cancelled in light of some heinous tweets from its star. We’ll deep-dive into this maelstrom and see what, if any, Emmy credibility can be savaged of the acclaimed reboot. In some quick topics, Andrew Lincoln is leaving The Walking Dead, and we’ll talk about Solo: A Star Wars Story and why it didn’t do so well at the box office this weekend. If you count $100 million + not doing so well.

We close our podcast, as always, with the Flash Forward to the television we’re most anticipating in the upcoming week.

Plus, we announce another entry in our Water Cooler Podcast Book Club series. Be sure to listen and find out what novel we’re going to cover on our first podcast of July!
