So, for the first time in Cinemental history, we are down one man! Due to circumstances beyond out control, we had a guest bow out last minute and we put out the call to our previous guests and lo and behold, writer/Artist Dennis Calero answered the call. Without, two movies to discuss, we chose to dig into two events of recent days: "Zack Snyder's Justice League" & "Godzilla vs. King Kong". We hope you like it! Enjoy!
In the 10 intervening years between his "Night of..." and "Dawn of the Dead" films, George A. Romero made four features. The third of which was 1973's "The Crazies". Combining the rawness of the 'night' and the clear evolution of his style leading directly to films like "Martin" and and eventually "Dawn". Director, writer and composer Darren Callahan joins us for the second part of his visit as we discuss the original "The Crazies". Cause as we all know, any day with a Romero film in it, is usually a good day.
It may not be perfect, but no one can deny that the film screenwriter/composer/director Darren Callahan brings us this week is definitely unique. A completely new take on how we may become infected during a 'zombie' apocalypse is thought-provoking and may just make you ponder language in a new way after you watch it. One of Steve's personal choices for heavily underrated horror films.
And Stephen McHattie is just a wonder to behold.
Starlight Runner CEO and film producer Jeff Gomez returns with another film for us to dig into and this one will blow your mind! Come take a listen as we discuss "Hedwig and the Angry Inch" a musical based upon a Broadway play directed by and starring the writer/creator of the stage production. A combo you might not think would work out so well, but here transforms itself into one of my favorite viewing experiences since we started this show.
After a short hiatus, we're back with very special guest and CEO of Starlight Runner, Jeff Gomez. Join us as we jump into the first of two socially impactful film choices from Jeff and we start in New York City in the late 1960s with the John Schlesinger classic, "Midnight Cowboy." Listen in and find out why this film is still so important today.
If not the greatest musical of all-time, certainly the greatest musical, adventure-fantasy of all-time! 1939's "Wizard of Oz is quite simply, a wonder. I'd find it awful difficult to find someone who hasn't seen it, at the very minimum knows the story. Deirdre Brooks re-joins the team to discuss one of her, and our favorite films ever.
