Michael Denniston and Web Bist
Two men and a movie make for a good trilogy. Now give those two men three movies and you have a Trilogy in Theory.
The Everything Must Go Trilogy
On this Thanksgiving we attempt to be thankful for all of the things in our lives. Right before we get rid of them. No, this isn't one of this creepy and extremely privileged YouTube minimalist videos from a wealthy twenty something who is tired of having so much stuff. This is about a man dealing with the trauma of destroyed Nintendo Switch cases and the trilogy of films that got him through it. This is just another month of TRILOGY IN THEORY.

Hearts Beat Loud (2018)
The ever cantankerous persona of Ron Swanson is only somewhat to be found in the Nick Offerman starring HEARTS BEAT LOUD... sooooo we try our best to fill that void. But this film is so darn likable. Forgive us for this corny episode and then promptly go to hell for agreeing that it's corny. Like rate and review! This is TRILOGY IN THEORY.

Everything Must Go (2010)
Who knew that a mostly ignored Will Ferrell dramedy from 2010 would unite your two favorite podcast hosts even further in their bromance? Not the filmmakers of EVERYTHING MUST GO but I'm sure they will take this as praise. In fact they would probably gladly accept a podcast (even this one) a decade later trying to share the surprising amount of joy that this film contains. As long as that joy remains in earbuds and not in the front lawn. Because your hosts have a lot of Criterions. And they have learned no lessons from this month's TRILOGY IN THEORY!

Ghost World (2001)
Listen with great intrigue as two middle-aged men try to understand the whims of teenage girls but do not despair... for these characters come from a comic book! And thus your hosts have a SLIM chance of understanding the motivations of Enid and Rebecca in GHOST WORLD. We are old and we are tired... but we haven't boarded that bus out of town just yet. For this and many other things we apologize to our listeners.

Comics Without the Capes and Cowls
For Halloween we play dress up by dressing down comic book film adaptations. Wait. That sounds insulting. Maybe even sexual. None of that! Just two dorks talking about their own strangely paternal trilogy of comic books on the silver screen. Nothing remotely sexual about this. Just insulting. TO YOUR EARS.

Sin City (2005)
In an episode on SIN CITY these two movie podcasters feel free to commit all the sins at their disposal: Disparaging the director by choosing THE ONE scene directed by someone else as the best (love you, QT) Choosing Josh Hartnett as their favorite character because he's the least Chatty Cathy of all these monologue loving dudes. And debating if it's worth the end of theatrical exhibition as we know it just to stick it to ALITA: BATTLE ANGEL fans. Can you handle all this testosterone saturated decadence? If not go back to our episode on AMERICAN SPLENDOR you nerd. Because we need the download. Any downloads!

American Splendor (2003)
Join us as you discover one host's REBEL WITHOUT A CAUSE phase of his youth was strangely influenced by the screen persona of Paul Giamatti. Grabbing the podcast microphone and proudly proclaiming that he is a nerd leaves your other host with no recourse but to play the hipster card and go on the record with being early on the AMERICAN SPLENDOR bandwagon. So, both are dorks. Welcome to TRILOGY IN THEORY!

Road to Perdition (2002)
In this episode we discover that one host was THE adult in the room back in the summer of 2002; hanging out with the greats of Newman and Hanks. Meanwhile your other host couldn't get enough of some dork named Tobey and the usual comic book tights as seen in a little movie called SPIDER-MAN. This month... that host becomes a MAN. Not Spider-Man. That's for kids. STUPID kids. We are so mature here at Trilogy in Theory. Fans of TiT know this.

The B-Sides (Fatal Attraction, Amélie, Paper Heart)
When one thinks of rabbits in film... the first thought that comes to one's sick mind is FATAL ATTRACTION. When one thinks of dreaming in Paris of lives not lived... one judges the scheming of a duplicitous young lady named AMELIE. And finally when one thinks of Michael Cera you could go with the three prior films we talked about on this very podcast. Or maybe even SCOTT PILGRIM VS. THE WORLD. But, no... here you will find PAPER HEART. These films all have one thing in common. They were losers in winning a coveted slot on our previous trilogies in theory. But today... they are on TRILOGY IN THEORY. Enjoy and thank you for being with us for the first three months of this podcast!

The Romantic Influence of Michael Cera
What more can we say about this century's sexiest leading man in cinema? Our listeners would probably say PLEASE GOD NO MORE and to that we say... calm down, we have to take this opportunity to revisit a "physical journey" with Michael Cera.  And that's just the disturbing cold open! What will the rest of the episode reveal about our deviant hosts? Only the bold listeners of TRILOGY IN THEORY will know.
