This week Mike and Dan docked the Whiskey Flicks Live! One Year at a Time… machine at its final port (for now) in 1997. We felt all the feels as we celebrated the exuberance of the year’s biggest blockbusters, but also took a detour into how queerness was being represented and explored in peak 90s cinema. See below for the complete playlist.
Up next in April: Whiskey Flicks Live! MIDNIGHT MADNESS!!!, a three part, unscripted, booze-infused deep dive into midnight movies, cult classics, and underground fan favorites with special guests Yeauxlanda Kay, Kyra Sims, and Cecil Baldwin.
This week the Whiskey Flicks Live! One Year at a Time…EXTENDED EDITION time machine hurled right to the heart of 1989, a crucial year for Mike and Dan as they watched the Berlin Wall crumble, entered high school, and leveled up on their film nerdery. Blockbusters, indie films, music vids…suddenly everything felt much more important. See below for the complete playlist.
Next week, we whisk away to 1997 (peak ’90s imho) and the last performance of our decade-hopping Extended Edition of One Year at a Time…
This week we hopped back into the Whiskey Flicks Live! One Year at a Time…EXTENDED EDITION time machine and bleep blop blooped back to 1976, where we explored a post-Vietnam, post-Watergate, pre-80s-and-all-that-came-with-it cinematic landscape. It was a year of movies haunted by the past but also looking tentative optimism toward the future. See below for a complete playlist of our Feb. 19 show.
Next, we Zoom forward (literally) to 1989. Join us Friday 2/26 at 8pm EST (which happens to be Dan’s birthday!) for some late 80s realness.
This week, the Whiskey Flicks Live! One Year at a Time… machine reached its climactic destination, all the way IN THE YEAR 2000 (yeah, it never gets old). We explored movies at the dawn of the new millennium through the themes of “the end of history,” beginnings and endings, competition, and the importance of integrity and “taste” in art, music and film. Below is a complete playlist from our January 29 show.
But the journey isn’t over! After a week off, we’ll be back on Friday, February 12, 8pm EST for a special Valentine’s Day special: Whiskey Flicks Live! I❤️ NY. And the following three Fridays, 8pm EST, we’ll be back in the time machine, taking some control of the gears in Whiskey Flicks Live! One Year at a Time…EXTENDED EDITION, with our first stop on a three-decade hop being 1976 (cue Gonna Fly Now as we run up the steps)!
