  • Duncan and Bo Come Correct – Tragic Comedy! - Welcome to episode 11 of season two!  As we wind down, it’s nice to dive into the world of comedic film.  Laughter, you know?  Having a good time.  And so, Duncan brings it with Four Lions,  a film about that most hilarious of subjects – terrorism.  Not to be outdone, Bo presents the suicide-tastic cult classic Harold & Maude.  Which of these feel-good stories generates the most laughs?  Is quantity more important than quality?  Also, why was there so much cannibalism in Ron Howard’s In the Heart of the Sea?  These questions and more are answered on this episode of Duncan and Bo Come Correct!

  • Duncan and Bo Come The X-Files – Episode 5: Babylon - With only one episode left, your pals Duncan and Bo talk about the very political and surprisingly silly episode, Babylon.  Why did Chris Carter let Mr. Soapbox get top billing in this episode?  What do we think about Einstein and Miller?  What about the tragic death of Acting Director Grammar?  Also, a surprising amount of use of the word ‘badonkadonk.’  Join us for our penultimate episode as we rank every episode so far and discuss the hopes and concerns for the final episode.  Oh yeah, there’s also a drug trip… Podcast: Play in new window | Download
  • Duncan and Bo Come The X-Files: Episode 4 – Home Again - With only two episodes remaining in Season Ten of The X-Files, we come off the dizzying highs of Episode Three and land right in the trash heap.  This time around, series stalwart Glen Morgan writes and directs an episode that has something to do with street art and homeless predators.  Also, Scully’s mom is dying.  Lots to pick through this time around, but we still make time for the important things, like the semantic differences between the United States and United Kingdom as it relates to trash collection, the return of an old series favorite and the subtle symbolism of trash monsters.  Enough talking, get to listening!

  • Duncan and Bo Come Correct – The Best Movies We’ve Ever Done -   This time around, Bo is a point behind as we turn our attention to documentaries.  Duncan attempts to extend his lead with the powerhouse documentary on the Buckley/Vidal debates, Best of Enemies.  Bo fires back with the dark horse doc, Call me Lucky, a profile of the life and times of comedian Barry Crimmins.  While the choice might seem obvious, these documentaries show us that nothing is just what it seems and that anything can happen.  As the title implies, these are two of the greatest films we’ve discussed and the decision for the winner this time around is tortuous for both our cinematic pugilists.

  • Duncan and Bo Come X Files – Episodes 1 & 2 -   The long wait is over and the six episode run of brand new installments of The X Files are here!  But, how could you possibly be expected to navigate the conspiracies and new information placed before you without the aid of your dedicated duo, Duncan and Bo?  Well, let’s stop yaping and start X-Filing!  We cover the first two episodes and discuss what’s different and very much the same about this new incarnation of the influential series.  Come on in!

  • Duncan and Bo Come Correct – Criminal Behavior -   Welcome to episode six of season two, an episode where your faithful hosts get criminal!  With Duncan in the lead by a single film, Bo has to get European with the ponderous and deceptively simple Stranger by the Lake.  Meanwhile, Duncan goes American with the recent 2015 thriller, The Gift.  Can this reversal of roles secure Duncan’s lead or will Bo tie things up?  These questions answered, plus Bo’s DJ name and lots and lots of penis.

  • Duncan and Bo Come Correct – Halloweenerie! -   It’s that time of the year… the leaves are turning, there’s a chill to the air, and Duncan and Bo have returned to battle on the fields of horror.  With the score tied once more, Duncan gets foreign (naturally) with the Belgian surrealist horror film Calvaire, while Bo goes all American with the tale of a discarded alligator that grows to enormous size in the sewers of Chicago called, naturally, Alligator.  Also, we discuss Unfriended and The Visit and pitch a million dollar idea for a Halloween-based eaterie.  Put up your dukes, it’s time to fight over who has come most correct!

  • Duncan and Bo Come Correct – It’s a Mystery! -   Join your debating duo Duncan and Bo for the fourth round in Season Two of Duncan and Bo Come Correct.  Bo leads 2-1, and this time out the fellas get all mysterious with a pair of modern films that redefine the nature of the classical mystery.  Will Bo secure another win with the Steven Soderbergh social commentary/murder mystery Side Effects from 2013, or will Duncan prove that newer is better with his pick, 2014’s Gone Girl from the estimable David Fincher?  Be warned of spoilers in this episode as we discuss the ins and outs of what makes a noir film and how these movies subvert those ideas.  Let’s get our magnifying glasses and deerstalker hats to puzzle out who has, in fact, come most correct!   Podcast: Play in new window | Download
  • Duncan and Bo Come Correct – This Means WAR! -   With the scored tied at one apiece, the pugilists of projections turn their sights to the topic of war.  Duncan digs deep for an excellent and complex film called Ulzana’s Raid, set in the American Old West where a veteran tracker played by Burt Lancaster squares off against savage Apaches, but who’s the real villain of this film?  Determined to take home season two with authority, Bo adds a touch of Kubrick with the Cold War satire, Dr. Strangelove; or, How I Learned to Stop Worrying and Love the Bomb, featuring the remarkable Peter Sellers in three distinct roles.  The lines are drawn and the weapons are chosen.  FIGHT!!!

  • Duncan and Bo Come Correct – Season Two Episode 2 – Love and Other Disasters - Ah, love.  To quote Matt Groening, love is like hurtling across the frozen tundra when, suddenly, the snowmobile flips over.  At night, the ice weasels come. We debate the respective merits of the 1981 comedy classic Modern Love and reflect on the true meaning of ‘uncomfortable.’  Duncan gets all European with the coming-of-age tale Blue Is the Warmest Color, which depicts the burgeoning romance and fallout of the relationship between two young French women.  Regardless, neither of these are going to end well. Can Duncan tie the season or will Bo extend his lead to a confident 2-0?  Find out in this episode! Podcast: Play in new window | Download
  • Duncan and Bo Come Correct: A Different Word for Everything! -   Season Two is here! Welcome back to the cinematic theater of conflict that is Duncan and Bo Come Correct!  For the kick-off of Season Two, we come together to discuss two examples of French cinema.  Duncan gets all black-and-white with Luc Besson’s Angel-a, in which a down-on-his-luck crook meets a beautiful woman with an appetite for life and a fantastic secret. Bo brings the rabbit-raisin’, water-needin’ drama of Jean de Florette to the table, and, of course, Gerard Depardieux plays a hunchback.  Can you even call people that anymore?  Hunchback-American? Also, some talk of Mad Max: Fury Road and A Girl Walks Home Alone at Night. Who takes the early lead?  Who can begin season two with the better foreign film?  And why can’t Bo say “repeat?”  All this and more answered as Duncan and Bo Come Correct!!!

  • Duncan and Bo Come Correct: Episode 13 – Duncan and Bo Come Incorrect -   It’s the Feast versus the ‘Beast in the final episode of season one, and the first round of Duncan and Bo Come Incorrect!  With victory in hand, Duncan shows up to the party with a 5000-year-old Blood Feast.  With the intention of proving that his pick is the worst-yet-wonderful movie, Duncan’s film boasts inept cops, ridiculous books, ’60s-era cheesecake, and the worst sacrifice in film history.  Bo has been touting his pick for several episodes, and brings the thunder with a film filled with stop-motion monsters and a plot that requires a degree in bad filmmaking to decipher.  Also, a weird old man and his toaster permits.  This one has to be heard to be believed! Final song: “Hazy Shade of Winter” by The Bangles. Special thanks to Jamie Jenkins for providing our non-robotic voice all season long.  See you in May everyone!

  • Duncan and Bo Come Correct: Episode 12 – Showdown! -   After eleven hard-fought episodes, it all comes down to this.  With a loss, Bo must admit defeat to Duncan for season one.  With a win, a tie is still possible, which is technically a win for the United States, based on the same logic that America rules and Scotland drools. Duncan comes armed with a post-modernist tale of revenge in the Australian outback, a Guy Pearce-starring film entitled The Proposition.  Unimpressed with his film rival’s new-fangled movie, Bo fires back with the last movie starring American icon John Wayne called The Shootist.  With the sun setting behind them and hands poised above their pistols, two cinephiles prepare for a duel on the cinematic streets.  Lock up the ladies and little ones, folks, ’cause it’s time to DRAW!

  • Duncan and Bo Come Correct Episode 11: Play Ball! -   Welcome back to the gladiatorial cinematic experience that is Duncan and Bo Come Correct.  With Bo behind Duncan and the season rapidly drawing to a close, Bo is a clear underdog.  It’s only right that we address sports films.  Neither challenger is willing to admit defeat as Bo brings the heat with the baseball drama, Moneyball.  Duncan, riding high on his foreign film picks, goes back to the well for the Iranian feel-good film, Children of Heaven.  With only two episodes remaining, every pick is critical.  Who will emerge victorious from this battle of wills and film?

  • Duncan and Bo Come Correct Episode 10 – Let’s Get Real -   In the auspicious return to cinematic battle, stalwart heroes Duncan and Bo look to the world of documentary filmmaking.  Duncan decides to go dark, unsurprising to anyone who knows anyone from Scotland, and Bo finds old people singing to be a worth opponent to Duncan’s selection.  Will the Dark Side win out in this discussion of real-world storytelling?  Listen to find out the surprising answer!

  • Duncan and Bo Come Correct, Episode 7: The Pain of Dramedies - Having established victories in the previous two episodes, Bo swaggers into this episode with the Kenneth Lonergan-directed comedy-drama, You Can Count on Me.  Boasting incredible performances by Mark Ruffalo and Laura Linney, how can he lose? Duncan refuses to be denied, however, returning from two losses with the near-future fantasy Robot & Frank, with the full weight of a Frank Langella master-performance behind it. Can two comedy-dramas of such high quality finally tear the show apart?  Can Duncan get back into the competition with a helper robot?  Can Bo extend his win streak and establish a near-insurmountable lead for this season of DBCC?  These questions, and a contentious assertion about cinema’s best Dracula, await you in this thrill-packed episode of Duncan and Bo Come Correct!

Brawn! - After tying the previous week with the roundhouse pick of The Contender, Bo heads back into the ring with a movie that mixes the sweet science with a con.  With James Woods in his corner, how can he lose? On the other side of the ring, Duncan steps up with a taste of magical realism and a heady examination of the meaning of happiness and fulfillment.

This time, they each choose a buddy cop film, but can the strain of competition allow these cinematic brawlers to be buddies at the end?  Also, there’s something about August Underground and heads exploding.

  • Duncan and Bo Come Correct Episode 4: Auteur-o-Rama! - We have been remiss in getting you, our dear droogs, a new episode.  I, Bo, take full responsibility for that in that it has taken more time to edit this episode.  BUT, this episode is about twice as long as usual, so don’t be so huffy.  In Episode Four, a TIEBREAKER episode, we discuss two very different films from two very different filmmakers, both of whom have produced some of the most interesting cinema in the past decade.  Ben Wheatley and Bobcat Goldthwait give us plenty to talk about with A Field in England and Willow Creek  Enjoy the drama of our discussion when Duncan and Bo decide who has come most correct in the first four episodes, and who will emerge victorious in our 2-2 tie.

We discuss two films that deal with power, whether criminal or political (what’s the difference really?).  Two films from the year 2000 face off in the cinematic circle, the film Thunderdome from which only one movie may be crowned king. Also, more monkey talk. Mentioned in the episode, we highly recommend these two podcasts: We Hate Movies and Killer POV Podcast: Play in new window | Download

  1. November 4, 2008 – 1:51 PM Hey Donna! You know how much I love gear talk, so I’m here to offer my thoughts on your rememcondations.Soundsoap: I’ve worked with Soundsoap on both PCs and Mac and my experience is that works better (by an order of magnitude) on Macs.Lapel vs. table-top mics: I have taken to recommending that client-site recording sessions for professional purposes be done using lapel (lavalier) microphones. People who are inexperienced speaking to a microphone will find it much more relaxing to be able to adjust their seating position without having to sit awkwardly to accommodate the microphone.My experience is that the Edirol R1 still boasts one of the best audio-to-digital converters which results in a great recordings in its class (H2, H4, Microtrack). It’s a shame that it’s no longer manufactured. If you ever decide to part with yours, let me know.As always, I HIGHLY recommend against editing out uhms and ahhs unless they are excessive. That is, leave them alone unless the speaker uses them two or three times (or more) in 10 seconds or less. If that’s the case, I recommend cutting out one out of every three or four uhms. Cutting them all out misrepresents the speaker and most of the English speaking world. It comes across as robotic and unnatural and that’s about as hard to listen to as too many. Also, inexperienced editors may chop out breaths which is the worst thing you can do to an audio recording and your audience.It was great to have another Trafcom News podcast show up. See you at PodCamp Toronto and PAB2009???
