It’s finally time to close up the summer box office contest for 2014! Congratulations to our winner, Philip Poirot, for pantsing the rest of us on one of the hardest-to-call summers we’ve ever seen. We recap what happened from the back of a speeding car.
A long way getting from stage to screen, I think I started my homework for the 1986 episode of thedewover sometime in May, recorded the episode in the summer, recorded a 1984 episode a couple months later that referred to the 1986 episode relentlessly without the latter having been posted yet, and now here it is: Best Picture, 1986, the year of A Room With A View, Hannah and Her Sisters, The Mission, Children of a Lesser God, and the astonishing Platoon.
My hetero lifemate, Beard, joins the Dew Over for a look at 1975: the year of Jaws, Dog Day Afternoon, Nashville and One Flew Over the Cuckoo’s Nest.

Reporting live (actually it’s a podcast) from the first night of the Toronto International Film Festival 2014! We pick our top five anticipated films for the week ahead, and since there’s nothing better to do we get into the real question: WTF is with that beard.
Lemme tell ya something - I did the 1984 episode of The Dew Over with a bit of drinky in my winky; and then got press-ganged into a previously scheduled Drinkalong where I consumed 4 beers, and the results were spectacular. Join me, Jamie Dew, Casey Lyons (who now swears he’ll never appear on Mamo!), and Dave and Jeremy as we talk about home brew, and every single other thing that comes to our addled minds.
