Uncut Gems Podcast (December 2022 Round-Up)

And just like that, 2022 has come to a close and over at Uncut Gems Podcast we have completed a fine year of talking about great movies and pushing our journey forward. Granted, it was a year peppered with challenges – from hurricanes to new jobs and everything in between – but we have somehow persevered, increased our productivity, got Randy to join the show as a permanent host and now we are all abuzz with what’s to come in 2023. But more on that at the end of this write-up. For now, here’s what happened in December 2022!

Uncut Gems Podcast (August 2022 Round-Up)

This year we decided to devote the month of August to none other than John Woo with a particular focus on his Hollywood movies. In fact, the idea to do this stemmed from the fact that one of our hosts is a massive fan/apologist of John Woo and he also happen to have his birthday in August. And if you pouch your lips just the right way, you will easily pronounce the word August as “A-Woo-gust”; this stuff just writes itself.

The Uncut Gems Podcast – Circling The Matrix Marathon

If you’ve been keeping up with our show, you probably know by now that all throughout the last month-and-a-half we’ve been exploring films tied somehow to The Matrix, which we did in the run-up to the release of The Matrix Resurrections in cinemas. However, if you just discovered us, I thought it would be a good idea to gather everything we’ve done towards this goal in one place.

The Uncut Gems Podcast – Episode 43 (Hackers) and Episode 44 (Johnny Mnemonic)

In the last two episodes of the show (apologies for bundling them together here, but it almost works out because both movies discussed in these episodes are from the same year) we continued to circle The Matrix by jumping back in time and examining some of the movies that may have inadvertently served as parts of the cultural template upon the Wachowski film that indubitably reshaped the blockbuster landscape.
