We’re tackling four movies simultaneously. Each Storytelling Breakdown host was assigned another host with whom to share a movie. The only prerequisite for a film was that the person giving it had seen it and the person receiving it had not. Join us for a discussion of, as Caleb put it, “a slice of life film, a high stakes heist thriller, one of the greatest movies of all time, and Casablanca.”
“Wait, you haven’t seen…”
We know how this interaction goes. On one end of the conversation you have someone who hasn’t seen a film and is about to get a recommendation that might be going on a list they have been working through at an somewhat uneven pace. The other person gets to share one of their favorite movies and looks forward to hearing what the other person has to say about it.
We’re tackling four movies simultaneously. Each Storytelling Breakdown host was assigned another host with whom to share a movie. The only prerequisite for a film was that the person giving it had seen it and the person receiving it had not. When the dust settled, Stephen gave Caleb Casablanca, Caleb showed Larissa Tropic Thunder, Larissa let Ben borrow Paterson, and Ben organized a movie night for Stephen featuring Inside Man. How did things work out? How did each film land with its new audience of at least one? Join us for a discussion of, as Caleb put it, “a slice of life film, a high stakes heist thriller, one of the greatest movies of all time, and Casablanca.”
In 2023, we will be dedicating Spotlight conversations to discussing movies we have been meaning to get to for a while. The Lord of the Rings: The Scenes of Power is our attempt to do a deep dive into many of the moments from these films, starting off this episode with the prologue from The Lord of the Rings: The Fellowship of the Ring. The conversation starts around the 01:24:04

What is Storytelling Breakdown?
Storytelling Breakdown is a podcast deep dive into the way our favorite films, shows, books, games, and more reach us in all sorts of ways. Hosts Ben Clemmer and Caleb Meyer bring you a pop culture audio adventure recorded in Fort Wayne, Indiana. From the terrifying resonance of an eighty year old clown to the entire life of Caesar, from the cutting edge animation of an entire Spider-Verse to a card game from the late nineties that’s so Star Wars it hurts, and from the indelible mark of one of comics’ most creative writers to a museum dedicated to superheroes of all ages, Storytelling Breakdown is place where we can explore everything we love about the stories that make us who we are.
