Part two of our chat with writer extraordinaire, Jimmy Palmiotti, where we dip our brains back into the warm, loving pool of 80s cinema and we tear into Paul Schrader's classic re-telling of Val Lewton's "Cat People". We chat about just how "80s" this film actually is and the importance of Giorgio Moroder's score, in addition to our usual discussion of the films very small assortment of posters, in which we learn a lot about poster art and the art of retouching. Enjoy!
The great Jimmy Palmiotti joins the Cinemental team to discuss one of his all-time favorite films, the 1968 classic "Where Eagles Dare" We also discuss this film's many fine (and not so much) posters in our "Down the Tubes" segment. Once upon a time, Jimmy designed movie posters himself, working for a legend in the business and I guarantee you've seen posters he's created. So listen for a fun look back to the days of classic action/adventure, oh yeah...and killing Nazis. Lots of Nazis.
Don't forget to stick around for the "Down The Tubes" segment, it's especially fun this week with a former poster designer himself, Jimmy dissects the offerings and lets us know what's crap and what's cool and why! Enjoy! (I know we did)
In 1986, Rob Reiner released what would turn out to be (IMO) his second greatest film. Based upon the Stephen King coming-of-age novella "The Body", "Stand By Me" would stand alone in away that still is an amazing accomplishment. Featuring a stellar cast of mostly fresh faces, including the debut of a certain future 'Slider'. Special guest Deirdre Brooks brings her unique and wonderful perception to the show this week for the first time.
Below, as always, you can find the posters images we discuss on the "Down the Tubes" segment of the show. Enjoy!
Continuing with our discussion with Top Cow president and very busy writer, Matt Hawkins, we jump into his choice of 'guilty pleasure' film, 1987's "The Hidden". How did it hold up after 30-plus years? Give a listen and find out what we thought in this special "snack-size" episode!
Just a few posters to discuss on the "Down the Tubes" segment. We certainly wish there were more!
This week we are joined by voluminous writer and president of Top Cow Publishing, Matt Hawkins. We discuss one of his favorite films, "The Shawshank Redemption". I'm not sure there's anyone who at this point hasn't seen this masterpiece, but in case there is, and you're reading this, go watch it NOW. ;)
We also ran long on this one and so we'll be posting Part Two later this week for his "guilty pleasure" film. (Which is equally exciting!)
Below, as always, you can find all of the images we discuss on the "Down the Tubes" segment from the show. Enjoy!
Today we have the second half of our show with writer extraordinaire, James Ninness and although it was his choice as his 'guilty pleasure' film, this movie clearly holds an important spot in many people's nostalgic hearts. The film that refuses to die, "Krull". You can listen to it here on our "Eargasms" page.
As always you can find the poster images we discuss on our "Down the Tubes" segment of the show below.
This week's show brings yet another first! Our conversation with our special guest, writer James Ninness, ran so long that it only made sense to make two shows out of it. So, this is part one, featuring one of James' favorite films, Alex Garland's adaptation of Jeff Vandermeer's novel, "Annihilation".
The second half of this show will be up later this week, but settle in and enjoy a rousing discussion of an amazing film.
As always, below you will find the large number of posters we discuss (over 50!) for the "Down the Tubes" segment for this very visual film.
Just in case that wasn't enough to give it away, our film this special mid-week episode is the 80's storybook fantasy classic, "The Princess Bride".
This film was chosen this week by our very special guest on the show, Stoya! She's a world-traveling sexologist and author (you can find her stuff HERE) She requested this film as her favorite and all we could think to say was...as you wish.
