Hey Guys,

It's been kind of a long time coming, but Pressed & Bound has finally come to a close.

The show was great fun, but this site has outlived its usefulness (and we haven't updated this hoopty in years now).

But Fret Not

Below are links to episodes 31 through 131. Unfortunately, the first 30 are lost to the ages (and server migrations). Those were pretty rough, anyway.

Joe and Garret still exist in some form, and if you are somehow looking for either of them, Twitter is probably the best place:

Buckle your seat belts. Usually we are pretty nice with discussing films that we might not enjoy, but that might not be the case this time with Transformers: Dark of the Moon. Around this film we also discuss the novel Donnie Brasco: Unfinished Business and the movie The Adventures of Priscilla Queen of the Desert.

The film we watch this week has a an exclamation point in front of the name, and it's CRAZY. The “art-house” – as we like to call it – documentary is entitled !Women Art Revolution, all about prominent female artists and their movement in the later 20th century.

Oh no! Who left the memory card at home so we are only down to one camera this week?! That'd be Garret. As a result, we decide to do a shorter show focusing on one thing: lanterns that are green.

June 16, 2011

This week we discuss some of the Daredevil news that has come about in the passed week or so in addition to the novel We, the film Super 8, and the documentary Naked Ambition: An R Rated Look at an X Rated Industry. Quite the eclectic mix, this week.

June 11, 2011

May 31, 2011

This week Joe discusses Sweet Hereafter: A Novel, I talk about Sherlock, and we both discuss The Hangover Part II. There also might be a bonus trailer thrown into the mix. MAYBE. Maybe there is one. Who knows?

May 24, 2011

Since it's the end of the month, we have eschewed the normal voting schedule and watched a film down at the Oklahoma City Museum of Art. The film we chose is called Into Eternity, a documentary about what to do with hundreds of thousands of tons of nuclear waste.

May 21, 2011

Born to Run: A Hidden Tribe, Superathletes, and the Greatest Race the World Has Never Seen is the book up for discussion this week, and I get to talk about not only a small tribe of elite runners in Mexico, but also SCIENCE. All of us watch Bridesmaids, and we all don't remember everyone who is in it. And finally, Joe discusses the film Somewhere and attempts to sell to us that a slow zooming shot that lasts three minutes can be interesting.

May 4, 2011

We discuss three separate things this week: Autobiography of Mark Twain, Fast Five, and Intolerable Cruelty. Other things that happen: some kid does a front flip off a rock, and at least two elderly ladies don't understand what cameras are.

April 25, 2011

For our second time viewing a film at the Oklahoma City Museum of Art, we chose to see Bill Cunningham New York, a documentary about a very genuine old man who takes photos for a little, small town newspaper called The New York Times.

April 19, 2011

This week Joe brings us a book entitled Swimming to Cambodia about a gentleman who might just enjoy being himself too much. Or maybe we don't enjoy being ourselves enough. We both see Scream 4, yet neither of us actually scream for the duration of that segment. I apologize for any inconvenience.

Lastly, Garret discusses The One Percent. It's about rich people. Did you know that rich people generally don't really care about poor people? It's crazy!

April 13, 2011

Books are thrown right out in this weeks episode, opting instead to talk about HBO's Game of Thrones. We may or may not have talked about the book in Episode 80. Joe discusses Visioneers, and we both have different takes on Your Highness. We also talk about Hanna for no good reason (other than it's good).

April 6, 2011

Today Joe talks about the superbly titled novel The Man Who Was Thursday, we both see the film Source Code and are pleasantly surprised, and Garret discusses the DVD Mystery Team.

March 31, 2011

This week we discuss a novel all about New York and its residents in the 70s (and today!) with Collum McCann's Let the Great World Spin. Then, Zach Snyder shows us how every cool thing you have ever wanted to see explode can come together in one movie entitled Sucker Punch. And lastly, a silent warrior rocks everyone's face in Valhalla Rising.

March 22, 2011

The two films we saw this week were both imports from the land of the rising sun. The first, Summer Wars is about a boy who takes on a "job" as a girl's boyfriend as she visits her family for her grandmother's 90th birthday. And there's also a major threat from a rogue AI that takes over OZ, the global social network and virtual life service. You know, that old chestnut. The second film we saw was NEON GENESIS EVANGELION 2.0 YOU CAN (NOT) ADVANCE. There are lots of giant robots in this one.

March 16, 2011

This week we discuss a novel straight from Japan that may or may not be about nothing entitled Almost Transparent Blue, Disney's attempt to cash in with Mars Needs Moms, and the film Funny People, which isn't necessarily that funny.

March 8, 2011

In this week's episode we discuss the children's classic The Wonderful Wizard of Oz, chock full of dismemberment, wolf slaughtering, and possible allegory for America's monetary woes during the time. Also, some bureau decides it's OK to jack with your life in The Adjustment Bureau. And finally, is The Kids Are All Right deserving of all the Oscar nominations or is it just an indie flick with famous people in it?

February 24, 2011

It's just a few days before the Oscars, so we spend some time discussing the nominees for some of the categories. We also wonder why the Best Original Score category is all weird.
