This episode, we welcome Archie Comics President, Mike Pellerito into the Cinemental studio. He brings with him, the perennial summer classic that re-defined how the world views heading to the beach. Steven Spielberg's worldwide mega-hit, "Jaws". The film that not only helped coin the term "blockbuster", but it helped raise the interest in sharks and essentially created the "Shark movie" genre.
In this first part of a special 2-part episode, we dive into this summertime favorite, one of the best films ever made. Our normal poster segment, "Down the Tubes" will be included in the second half of the episode, available in a few days. Enjoy!
So, in part two of our conversation with best-selling author Raymond Benson, we discuss the David Lynch TV tie-in film, "Twin Peaks-Fire Walk With Me" and how and if it's merits stack up against other Lynch works and how it adds and/or detracts from the TV experience.
As a added listening bonus, following the "Down the Tubes" segment, you can catch a little bit of what it's like when we are just chatting after a show. Poster are below as usual, enjoy!
This was a special one. This week are joined by best-selling author Raymond Benson, in the first part of a two part show, to discuss perhaps one of the most important science-fiction films of all time. Certainly polarizing, as it has it's fans and haters, but undeniably one of the seminal space-based movies in film history. Over 50 years old already and looking as fresh as a newborn still today, "2001:A Space Odyssey".
Is it Kubrick's masterpiece, or an overindulgent spectacle that leaves you shaking your head asking yourself, "What the fuck was that all about?" Come join us as we attempt to answer that and so many other questions about it. Below you can find all of the posters that we discuss on the "Down the Tubes" segment, there are a bunch of them, so get comfy. Enjoy!
We invite writer/actor Todd Stashwick onto the show this week and we dive into two films that had an important impact on his childhood and eventual career path. Come and revisit a couple of amazing pieces of 70s cinema and discover if they hold up to scrutiny from eyes that are a few decades older.
Below, check out the posters we discuss on the show during our "Down the Tubes" segment for both films! Enjoy!
Welcome to part two of our discussion with writer/director/producer Lucky McKee. Listen to us get a little confused by Zack Snyder's epic nutter, "Sucker Punch". This is straight up, one of the most confounding films of the last 20 years. At times in complete opposition with it's own purported 'message', this film jumps between being childish, schoolboy basement fantasy and something approaching female empowerment, or at the very least schoolboy fantasy dressed in female empowerment. Or something.
A plethora of posters with this one, almost all official pieces, too. Check them out below to follow along with our discussion during the "Down the Tubes" segment. Listen to the episode on our 'Eargasms' page. Enjoy!
Well, this week we welcomed Producer/Director Lucky McKee into the studio to discuss a couple of his favorite films. As usual, we ran a little long and it had to be broken into two episodes, but it does make it a little easier to consume, in 1-hour chunks rather than a 2 hour marathon, right?
So first off we take good long look at the Allen and Albert Hughes' sophomore directing effort, "Dead Presidents".
A coming-of-age film that takes place in the Bronx and Vietnam. The few poster images we discuss on the 'Down the Tubes' segment are below, as usual. Check out the episode on the "Eargasms" page. Enjoy.
