HALLOWEEN ENDS and MY POLICEMAN on Episode #432

Laurie Strode (Jamie Lee Curtis) and Michael Myers (aka The Shape) struggle against each other in Halloween Ends.We have two movies on the docket this week. First, we review Michael Grandage’s disappointing queer drama MY POLICEMAN (3:26), a story told in flashback about a policeman (Harry Styles) who falls for an art curator (David Dawson) in the 1950s, but marries a woman (Emma Corrin) to conceal his sexuality. Next, we discuss HALLOWEEN ENDS (25:39) the frustrating final film in David Gordon Green’s HALLOWEEN trilogy. Since none of us had seen the second film in the series, HALLOWEEN KILLS, we lead with a review it before delving into the final chapter. And in this week’s Patreon exclusive audio, we talk about Mike Flanagan’s 2013 horror film OCULUS

BOOK OF LOVE, A GRAND ROMANTIC GESTURE, and BORIS KARLOFF: THE MAN BEHIND THE MONSTER on Episode #395

Sam Claflin and Veronica Echegui sit next to each other on steps in the movie Book of Love. He is smiling at her and she looks more serious.

As Evan describes it, BOOK OF LOVE is better than your average bad rom-com

This week it’s documentary full of rom-coms! First up, is Thomas Hamilton’s doc BORIS KARLOFF: THE MAN BEHIND THE MONSTER (2:22), which offers fascinating facts, but distractingly bad production values. Next, we cover a movie that has us split, Joan Carr-Wiggin’s rom-com A GRAND ROMANTIC GESTURE (20:18), which is about a recently retired woman who falls for the man playing the Romeo to her Juliet in her drama class. Then we review another film that has us split, Analaine Cal y Mayor’s rom-com BOOK OF LOVE (36:40), which is about two writers (Sam Claflin and Veronica Echegui) who connect with each other during a book tour in Mexico. And on this week’s Patreon exclusive audio, we talk about the winner of our January poll: the 2018 Claire Denis film HIGH LIFE, starring Robert Pattinson and Juliet Binoche!
