POSSESSOR UNCUT, THE BOYS IN THE BAND, BLACK BOX, and THE LIE with Guest Charlie Nash on Episode #326

Andrea Riseborough looking worried and cast in an orange glow in the movie Possessor.

Guest Charlie Nash returns for this week’s show! The first films on the docket are BLACK BOX (3:36), a sci-fi film about a man suffering from amnesia undergoing a new treatment, and THE LIE (12:56), a thriller about two parents protecting their daughter; two horrorish flicks from Amazon’s Welcome to the Blumhouse series, which have varying success for each co-host. Next, everyone discusses the Netflix adaptation of the seminal queer play THE BOYS IN THE BAND (26:31), about gay friends at a birthday party in 1968 NYC, by digging into its differences from the original, and debating whether its story is still vital. Then, they delve deep into POSSESSOR UNCUT (52:04), Brandon Cronenberg’s graphic, psychological sci-fi horror. On this week’s Patreon bonus audio, we discuss KINDERGARTEN COP, which Charlie has never seen. Hilarity ensues.

HIDDEN FIGURES and Martin Scorsese’s SILENCE on Episode #130

Liam Neeson in Martin Scorsese's SILENCE

Liam Neeson horrified by the violence in Martin Scorsese’s SILENCE

Dave and Kris are back to start 2017 in style! This week the guys examine their favorite karaoke songs through the lens of 90s front men before they get to the movies. First, Dave shares his experience growing up as a Rush fan (at 6:58), and the sadness he felt watching the documentary RUSH: TIME STAND STILL for the second time. His story reminds Kris of DEATHGASM, an awesome movie about metal kids that he strongly encourages Dave and Evan to see. Next, Kris reviews HIDDEN FIGURES (at 16:50), a charming true story about three African American women working for NASA during the Space Race, which transcends genre tropes. Then the guys arrive at their main event: Martin Scorsese’s SILENCE (at 27:46). All three have seen it, so they have a LOT to say about the film’s commentary on religion, colonialism, and Christian arrogance through its 17th century tale of Portuguese priests conducting missionary work in Japan. They each have complaints and find the whole thing too long, yet ultimately respect what Scorsese is shooting for.
