Unknown:

Oh, I'm sorry, did I break your concentration somewhere between science and superstition, we have such sights to show you strange eons. Welcome to strange eons. Radio. That is Eric over there. Hello. That is Vanessa over there. Hello. I am Kelly. Hey guys, hey gang. I just got back from the Portland horror film festival. Oh, my God. How was it? Well, our short film, the connoisseur showed there, yeah, it opened the final block of the weekend, which was the shorts Gone Wild. Ooh. And it was very well received. I was really surprised. It was my first time seeing it on a big, big screen, you know, an actual theatrical big screen. And I was really pleased with the crowd reaction, like Eric has said before, they laughed at all the right spots. They groaned at all the right spots. And I was like, Oh, this made me feel like, like I had done something right? Did you get any of the moment where people realize what's going to happen? Noises? Yeah, there is the moment when, when, when everyone kind of goes, oh no. And the the festival itself really cool. These are the badges when your filmmaker. Is that the coolest looking thing? I mean, it's a acrylic plastic carved out, and everything very cool. That's beautiful. And Gwen told me they've been doing that since day one there, wow, for nine years. Oh, my God, if you're a weekend attendee, you get one too. Yeah, I got one. I did the streaming, okay, and they sent a streaming version, kind of thing like that. And, yeah, those are just so cool. Yeah. It was like, How come not at the Lovecraft Film Festival? And she's like, God, 10 times more people there. It's too expensive. Okay, that makes you know what that would be such a good like, tier though. Like, Hey, you want to come to the Film Fest and get this special badge, like, spend an extra 10 bags, drop in a little more. Do it? Do it? The Kickstarter thing that they do so well every year is that just at the Clinton Street Theater. No, it is Wednesday, Thursday. I think it might only be Wednesday, Thursday, or maybe Wednesday, Thursday, Friday at the Hollywood Theater, where the Lovecraft Film Festival is done, but it's only nighttime showings there, and then it goes Saturday and Sunday, all day film marathons at the Clinton. And you know how much I love the Hollywood right? Oh yeah, but, and you haven't been to the Clinton Street Theater, this theater was made for me. Oh, really, on on one side of the theater, literally, booze service to this chairs. Well, funny, you say that there is alcohol in the theater, okay, but the the door right next to the theater door on one side is the the trashiest dive bar you have ever seen, just amazingly trashy. And I was like, Okay, this is fantastic. On the other side, a kind of hoity toity Italian restaurant with lovely drinks and wine and all this stuff. And then directly across a kind of groovy, just bar, bar that's decorated in black velvet posters and things, things that I hate. Oh yeah. And as you know, if you've ever hung out with me at a festival, I'm really bad at attending the actual festival, but I'm really good at stealing people from the festival and having them drink with me. And I met a really cool guy named Jake Myers, who had a film in our block, and we ended up at the Italian place, and hit it off really well. And, and we were the only two filmmakers from the shorts Gone Wild block, so we got up and said a few things about the film. And, and then I also met uh Gretchen Brooks, who is the co host of the kaiju cast and the people's guide to the Cthulhu Mythos podcast. And I think we've got a possible co host for Amityville. She was like, oh yeah. She goes, I want to do that. You'll be sorry, although I did see the amateur field horror, the final film has now come out. I believe it's called so then we're done. They're not gonna be anymore excellent, because that's how that always works, right? Somebody was like, You know what? We're done. I think as a mess, I'm gonna go ahead and finish the. One up, guys, but we need to get a few more of those in the can soon. Yeah, yeah. Also, I will say this. So I didn't see any feature films there, but I watched all the short blocks on Saturday and Sunday, and there was not a bad film in them. And Eric, you know how nice the connoisseur looks, and everything. Yeah. Still, the least of the bunch of these. I was just like, going, what is going on here? And then at one of the Q and A's afterwards, some asshole in the audience has the balls to ask all the filmmakers who are standing up there, what was the budget for your film? And they told him, and I wanted to throw shit at these filmmakers and everything, because one of them's like, well, we budgeted at 20,000 but we lost it. So cost about 14,001 of the short films cost $50,000 short that was $70,000 kind of money, the connoisseur is what $70 I was hoping somebody would ask, you know, what was the budget on that? I was like, I don't know if we're there was a budget. There was a food budget, yeah, showed up and shot for what? 10 hours? Maybe, yeah, maybe, yeah, I pick up. That's why we love Stefan. Well, yeah, I know. I would have, I would have explained, we just called in a lot of favors, yeah, of 10 years of being nice guys, I feel like short films are such an important space to learn how to make films using the method of beg, borrow and steal. Yeah, it is so valuable to figure that out like I shot a short film that Eric has seen many times, heart and I begged to use a school. I borrowed costumes. You know, I got people's time for free. I think I spent some money on just a couple of small decorations and on, like, the cost of putting together some some animal horns for people's heads, and that was about it. I mean, the the whole thing only cost, I think, 300 bucks or something, yeah. But looks good too. The Yeah. I mean, 50 grand, I'd be like, Okay, if I double or triple this, I can do a feature. So if I've got 50 grand in the can, I can go or in my bank, I can go to other film investors. I've got 33% of my budget. You want to fill in the rest Exactly. So, I mean, these films looked spectacular, but I was like, what do you do now with a$50,000 short film, unless you're planning on using it as a pitch piece to get a feature version of that film, then you've been you've wasted your money. Yeah, I hope that that's what this was about, because it was a really cool idea. And now I can't remember the name of the film, because I can't tell you to go out and watch it, but I will say this, everything I saw there was really good. There was this bizarre Japanese haunted umbrella thing that was super gory. And there was something culturally I was missing, because there was kind of an umbrella fight at the end. And feel like I'm supposed to be taking this very seriously and stuff like that, though, just everything was amazing. It was a it was a real blast of a weekend. I'll tell you what. Kelly, if you remember the name of any of those, feel free to post it on our Facebook chat group for any of our listeners who would like to join us there. What's that called? Again? That's strange. Eons radio talk, yeah. Or Gwen. If you want to do that, feel free to think Gwen's part of that group. Official, Brian or Gwen was, yeah, she is, if not, Gwen join our group. Yeah, Brian, join our group. Okay, so I'm going to talk about a couple of things, none of them that I saw that weekend. Okay, okay, but I did see the acolyte, which is the new Star Wars, yeah, yeah. I think I'm caught up on that. Yeah, if you had told 10 year old Kelly in 1980 that every three months there was going to be a new Star Wars thing on television or in the theaters, and that he'd be bored silly, he would have just been like, you're insane. How could Star Wars ever be bad? This is just, I am so I think I'm done with Star Wars. What is going on with I saw a great tweet, actually may have been Matt put out that was, when did you lose face or something like that with Star Wars? And the answer was like, You know what I think I agree was MIDI chlorines. Yeah, 100% I haven't been really interested in a Star Wars movie. Well, you have liked but yeah, that was sort of like, okay, this is going routes that I am not. Not sure what to think of. I just, yeah. I mean, you know, I loved Rogue One, and then I mostly loved andor, and there's been bits and pieces of other things, but we're, you know, this recording three episodes into the acolyte, and I'm just, I'm just bored. I can't disagree like it. So it reminds me a lot of the problem that I find with Star Trek Discovery, where they've got a real Mary Sue issue, like the main character is so boring, Michael, so interesting. Yeah, Michael is the least interesting part of Star Trek Discovery, and that's the same of the accolade. And you get hurt twice. You get to have a boring person twice. So and, but the thing that I do like about it is the guy from squid game who's murdering it. He's so fun to watch. But other than that, it's really not that good, yeah, and, and also, once I realized that we were gonna go the good twin in the evil twin route. I was like, we are. I would have loved to find out that this was a split personality with the force or something interesting or different, but we've got good and bad siblings now. Again, still, like, okay, all right, yeah, not for me, the Acolyte. Well, I checked out something Ryan Reynolds is in a film currently called, if it's out in theaters, stands for Imaginary Friends, but don't call them that. Yes, I hadn't heard much about this, and I was like, oh, I want to check it out. Looks cute. Like I yeah, I'm always down for like, a good kids movie. I did not get it. I did not get a good kids movie out of this. It was so stupid. Maybe that's why you've heard so little about it. The advertising push for this was huge, really, I thought is small for them, of the kind of movie. No, they had, they have food endorsements. I went to IHOP right before this, just for funsies. The entire they had an entire IHOP if menu. I've been seeing stuff for this everywhere, I think, like they really wanted to push it, but it's a John Krasinski film, and it's written like he wants to make a Spielberg movie very badly, the way it's shot, the story, the beats everything, but he doesn't have the right cast, he doesn't have the right shots, he doesn't have the right story. It feels like it's not quite for kids with the themes, because it feels more like Toy Story three, where it's really like adults and growing past your childhood and all that kind of stuff. But then for adults, it'd be boring as snot, not that interesting. There's a zillion characters with a zillion famous voices that I couldn't tell you. You know who was playing who in there. It does not matter. I don't know why they hired those people. It's completely like, miscast. The only cool person in it is Ryan Reynolds and his character. I was like, from the trailer, I was like, I wonder if Ryan Reynolds character and can I spoil this movie? Okay, all right, if you're planning on seeing this, please stop listening for like, one minute. I wonder if Ryan Reynolds is this little girl's imaginary friend. Because why else would a grown man be hanging out with a little girl and trying to, like, help this whole agency of imaginary things? Like, I bet he's her imaginary friend. They don't tell you, but they sure hint at it with long shots at him. Him saying things like, Oh, I've always been with you, or, you know, my job is to make you happy, or whatever. Jesus. And in the last like, three minutes, they're like, Oh, he's her imaginary friend that she just forgot about because she just aged out of imaginary friends. I was like, I spent the entire fucking movie going, just get there. Say it. This is so stupid. I cannot say here one more second without you guys. Like, just, just tell them. Just, why. Why are we here? So it's a very frustrating movie for anyone who has any kind of intellect. Oh, my, I'll say this. I didn't I never had an imaginary friend. But everybody else's imaginary friends are these wacky monsters, basically from Monsters Inc, and this young girl imagined this smoking hot dude. Well, he was a clown in her but he took off his makeup because he lost his purpose. I see this reminds me of and I don't know if people are interested, I'll dig up and get you the name for it. But years ago at Miff, we had this short. Film that was Spanish, I believe in this fabulous it's about a half an hour one about a pep talking, inspirational speaking, imaginary friend who speaks to all the imaginary friends that have lost their children. Yeah, about how to feel good about themselves and find new I remember that same good plot? Oh, good. That was really good. Yeah, that's the thing is, like, I mean, Toy Story is also really good. It's the exact same thing. I mean, like this, what you're talking about is very spot on. And I would encourage people to see whatever the short is. Instead, I should mention you just threw out the word Miff, but that's a maelstrom International Fantastic Film Festival. And also how interesting that we got two imaginary friend movies right around the same time, because then Blumhouse had imaginary, which was the scary bear or something. Yeah, I didn't see imaginary, but I remember being very confused for a bit between the two trailers and being like, wait a minute, is this a horror film, or is this a cuddly, cute film? Horrible, horrible titles. Yeah, absolutely awful title like Google. If or imaginary, I dare you, it's definitely not going to be your film that you were trying to market. That's for sure. Probably not. No, alrighty. Well, I watch, I finally got the box set I've been waiting for a long time from Severin the clones of Bruce Lee. All right, so I watched the documentary enter the clones of Bruce by David Gregory, the guy who's done like lost soul and blood and flesh, all the and hundreds, literally hundreds, of documentaries for Severan, holy shit is this good. It is so interesting talking out all the the way, the subculture of this Bruce Lee imitators, and it is so much larger than I thought it was. It's like hundreds of movies going into the 80s, and some of them trying to produce Bruce Lee movies that are obviously Bruce Lee is not in, like some of them have. One of them has, like, his entire funeral is in it, like half an hour of footage. I remember this one plays for through that. And then all the guys who have been involved with it, like Bruce lye Li is probably one of the better interviews on there, and he's fun to listen to, because there's a feeling of what am I getting into. It's like he he was hard to get the interview with because he's got to be 70 years old. Yeah, he's that. Yeah, has he acted since that time he was doing that sort of messed up his career even. And he's good, honestly, actually, pretty decent actor, but you could tell he went through a lot of shit for being at the fake Bruce Lee. And by the as the interview progresses, you can kind of see him lighten up and understand that this guy talking to him loves these movies and is here to celebrate them. And let me tell you this box set. It's 12 movies, 14 with a special if you order it directly from seven. And I am so looking forward to diving into this after watching the documentary, because I remember very few of them, but I do remember a few of them. Well, I know what we'll be hearing about for the next several very strong possibility. We're about to go on a journey, folks, that's right. I'll get back to your favorite director at some point, raw deals, you know, something like that. I watched the number one movie on Netflix this weekend. Which one is it this week? It seems to be every couple days, the number one it is under Paris. Which is a shark movie? Yes. Oh, shit, okay, yes, I have seen stuff on this one, yes. So there is this group of researchers that have tagged this particular shark, and they're following her around, but when they finally see her again, they're like, this can't be her. She's 10 times bigger than she was. You know, it's impossible for to be her. And then I must have snoozed or been looking at my phone or something, because then there were a bunch of sharks. I think she had babies, but then they catch one of these babies, and the baby is already pregnant with hundreds of little sharks, and they're like, this is impossible. She's two years old or something, you know, and there's no way she could even have the organs to have a baby yet. And so now they're let loose under Paris, where there's this huge swimming fest meet going on. And basically, think of. Well, you know, if Paris was a small town, and instead of this swimming going on, it was like Fourth of July weekend, and the mayor didn't want to shut down the beaches. Well, you know, the mayor of Paris can't shut down this, the people coming from all over the place to celebrate this, this thing with hundreds of swimmers in the water. And hundreds of sharks. It turns out, one shark for every person, fantastic, and it is really, really dumb. The sharks move either at a pace that is just over zero miles per hour or 100 miles per hour underwater, depending on what the story requires. And it's really stupid. The effects are startlingly good in some places, and then in others, you're like, that is definitely from deep blue sea. Three like the same model that they use for that one. And then there's this amazing third act, where they catch one of the sharks. And, you know, because in Paris there's all these unexploded minds and and bombs and everything from World War Two, and one of them gets set off, which starts a chain reaction of all these things blowing up, and it's, it's blowing up all the bridges and everything. And then pretty soon, Paris is flooding with hundreds of sharks. And I'm like, Holy shit, this movie is about to get awesome. And then the credits roll. No What the fuck just happened? I just sat through a real pile of shit to get to this amazing part of the movie, and that was the end. Oh my god, under Paris too, coming next week. Well, you know what that would be? I'd watch under Paris too, because that sounds like a great movie. But this, this one really, really tough number one on what is it with shark movies? And we love a lot of different kind of bad movies, yeah, but there's something about shark movies that a lot of people seem to like. Bad movies up great Jaws impact me. Well, yeah, I would say that for sure. I what I really love are good shark movies. Like, I like 47 meters down. I think that's a really solid shark movie. And I like deep blue sea because he's stupid, but it's super entertaining, right? And self aware of what is going on and and then there's those really bad ones, like black demon. What was that one with a plane that went down that I was talking about a couple months ago? You know? Those ones are just frustrating, because I'm like, Wow, you guys wanted to make a cool movie, and you missed the mark. Yeah. So this one under Paris, it's on Netflix. I doubt it's going to hang on to that top slot for long, because a lot of people are talking about it, and they're not saying very kind things. Oh no, before it falls. So unfortunate. Well, I'm, I think I'm all, yeah, I am all caught up on Doctor, who's season so far they I think there's one more episode to the season. I hope otherwise, it's ended on a really crazy cliffhanger, and it's continues to have what is becoming my favorite doctor in shooties, I think how you pronounce his name, gatwa. He's fucking on fire in this show. It's so it's so good. He makes it so fun. And he does a lot of what you saw in David Tennant, where you would see this like bright, excited, energetic side that had this dark edge that would constantly kind of pull him back in. And there's moments where you can see that little hint of anger and that little hint of sadness, and you know his he just plays it perfectly. So I don't, I cannot recommend it enough. It's, it's a goofy show. It's always gonna be a goofy show. The plot is goofy as fuck yeah in every episode, but, and sometimes they do horror really well, yeah? Every once in a while they'll pull out a horror episode. You're like, oh geez, yeah. They had a episode that was very black mirror recently as well, and it was mostly irritating because you hated everyone in it very much, but it had a really solid, like, ending moment. So yeah, like, it's, yeah, it's doing what it's trying to do. Well, I need to catch up on those. I'm way behind. So as a fan of literally only the David Tennant era, why is there such a turnover in the doctor, the character? I mean, the actors playing the Doctor, why don't they want to hang out for 10 years on this show? Some of them do. Some of them hang out for three or four years or right? And I like that. And then I hated whatever. Matt Smith, yeah, he was just like, No, I do not like this guy. And I'm like, I. Fun. I This sounds like a lot of fun. Yeah, is it because they, they show off a little too much, and then movies come calling, and, no, I feel them ways. I mean, it's, it's almost like the role of being, you know, an elected official. It's, it's really cool. And, you know, you can do it for a couple years, and then I think the ratings probably what elected official with James Bond. Maybe. Okay, James Bond, thank you. That is such a better such a better analogy. Yes, no more like James Bond. They're popular for a season, and then I think they the ratings probably start to dip, and then they're like, Okay, let's see who else wants to maybe play this. And I'm sure the actors also get tired, because it's one of the shows that have way more episodes in it than a typical TV series in the UK. And usually, I mean, there's just tons of episodes per season. And now this one is only going to be 10 episodes, which is very weird for Doctor Who and the Christmas episodes and the Christmas episodes, and they're always come. I mean, the they started this season by having a Christmas episode that brought back David Tennant. So, I mean, you're kind of in it for life, for sure, but it's, I think people just society wants to move on, and they want to see who will be the next doctor. And I hope this time it's, you know, a girl, and this time it's a black guy, and, you know, like they're interested to see who will take up that mantle, and the story supports it, so it sure does All right, cool, okay, well, I've watched a new TV show last couple episodes, or whatever, I talked about evil, And now the boys are back. I get stressed out just looking at the thumbnail. I'm like, I'm gonna watch it, and when I do, I'll blast through it. But it's so it's such a stressful show. I've seen the first two episodes. I think there's three out at this point. And seems like the boys keep going, knowing what the boys do. You're not feeling like I'm starting to feel like superhero fatigue is hitting me so much that it's even affecting my enjoyment of the boys. Because I was like, I was like, I don't know why this first couple episodes didn't really grab me. And then I started thinking, Is it because they've skewered everything they can of superhero movies and that mine might be, or that well might be running dry, it could be, but I have you know, as we've discussed several times, I've been separated from the super movies for three or four years now, so I don't have that fatigue as much. This is the first superhero watch thing I've watched in a long time. So I think the last thing I watched was the teen version, right? The other show that be envy. Yeah, yeah. I mean, I like all the actors in it, and I like everything. And of course, butcher shows up, and, you know, about three minutes in, his first word is Kant, and got to be a record for this show. But for some reason this wasn't grabbing me. And I know this is going to be the last season. I think he said five. Oh, okay, last season. I do love that. This is a very hidden or disguised supernatural reunion. Yeah, everybody from the supernatural they've got, yeah, because dad is in it. Now, I forgot that actor's name, but yeah, whenever he shows up, he's always great, yeah, and I knew that that, like, washed up, like World War Two guys, soldier boy, he's from one of the two main characters, yeah, supernatural. Well, because he's the same showrunner from Supernatural, so I think he's just worked with these guys for 20 years, and he was like, Hey, you guys want to be on my next big thing. Hey, Jeffrey, Dean Morgan, you're not up to anything, right now, right? Walking Dead is, you know, going away, yeah? Oh, interesting. That's, that's, oh, amazing. Jim Beaver, beaver played uh, and he plays the same character's name in everything. Yeah? Robert singer, yeah, Bobby. Singer, Bobby, which is, I don't know what that in joke is all about, but, yeah, but he's, he works it just fine. But so far, I'm enjoying it. I mean, it's just it didn't have, each of the last season opener seemed to have that one moment, yeah, where you're like, how did they get this on film, and they haven't really had that. I mean, the one guy were running around all over the place, but, you know, you see naked guys in this show plenty, yeah, so, but it didn't have that, which I thought was interesting. But I think part of it too is just, I love watching Carl urban, yeah. Bill Urban's goodness, definitely my favorite part. I think that he's just such a likable actor who's been in so many things that have almost catapulted him to have it. For some reason that it's nice to see him in something that's big. I would love it if he you know, Okay, we're done with the boys. You know, we need to do a sequel to judge red judge dread. Oh, my God, he was such a good dread. Or finally, get that third Star Trek movie. There you go. I would wait. I was fine with the third Star Trek movie. It was total bullshit. Was there a third Star Trek? The fourth one? Then, yes, that fourth one would be great. I would follow those guys for many, many more films. Yeah, all right, guys, well, how about we take a little break then and then, when we come back, we are going to be talking about directors first or second films, as I understand this. Yes. If you're watching the most exciting game you will ever see on your TV set, tell star by Coleco with three different games. Tell Star Tennis, with digital scoring variable speeds. Tell star hockey, each player controls a goalie plus a forward on the other side, oops, a goal and tell star singles, handball, a game you play yourself. Telstar, handball, tennis, hockey, all three at an exciting, low price for great family fun, hit your TV to a Telstar bike. We have returned to be able to Eric, this was your sub genre pick. Want to remind everybody what it is again, first time, or to make it easier for searching maybe a second time filmmaker has gone on to be known for something doesn't necessarily have to be something you'd like, but something big, something they've gone on to be, okay, oh, they directed that or wrote that movie. Okay, cool. All right. Well, I'm gonna put 10 minutes on the buzzer for you go. All right, so, mine was released by, I think innervision, which is a sub of either vinegar or severing films, I'm not sure, but this foam with the funky title, hey, stop stabbing me. Herman Schumacher, dude, what are you doing here? Hey, I'm out of school now, graduated. Enter in the real world like me. Choir said you were looking for a roommate. Oh, yeah, it sure did. Hi, I'm Blaine, my name. Oh, here's your room. You mean, I got it? Yeah, I won't lie to you. We're kind of desperate for the rent right now, so make yourself at home, and I'll introduce you to the rest of the guys a little later. You ask them about the funeral, huh? You can take over on Larry's hole here. We had to let him go cause I forgot his tie. You must be Herman, you scared me. You should be more careful. You almost dropped something I like in the house. Pretty good. I mean, to ask you, though, what's the deal with the signs in the backyard? You know, to be honest, I don't get to the backyard that often, so what you doing? All right, you should be in on this too. I think Blaine may be a serial killer, whatever. Get your own comb. Tit, that's okay. Oh, wow, I'm warning you this pow. Me. No, thanks. That's okay. I didn't really want to make out with you anyway, maybe on the right back, excuse me, I like the way you dig, man, making us look bad. Well, maybe you should try digging a little fast so you're not gonna just let me kill you. I like that. We'll make a battle out actually, now that I'm standing by the door, I was planning on just running to the police station. Well, if you ever want to see her again, meet me in the backyard for a battle to the death. Hey, stop stabbing me, stabbing yourself with stabbing yourself. You. Which is said in the movie. So this was released in 2003 and has a rotten tomato. Ratings of nothing from no critics ratings, which is weird, considering how popular the filmmakers are now, and 67 from the crowd, which I think might even be low. The budget on this was depending on who you listen to, 200 or $500 Oh, wow. All shot on mini DV. Oh, my God, oh, mini DV. This is currently available to be trauma or for rent. It's a little light for trauma. I was like, oh, okay, I guess. But this is directed by Josh Miller. You're not going to necessarily recognize what he directed, four sads, four sad slasher movies. So four iterations of some sad slasher movie, and sledgehammer at dawn, which I need to check out now. Josh Miller also wrote this movie. You will recognize some of these. Maybe not go on the insatiable, but you certainly recognize Sonic the Hedgehog one and two and violent night, yeah. Okay, cool, along with his writing partner, Pat Casey, who is in this film, and is also co writer of all those films. Pat Casey, you may know from dorm days, one and two as an actor, transylmania and the sad slasher movies. Andy HIPAA, Chris. I just thought his nickname sounded interesting. He's been in absolutely nothing else. Maria amoralis was in the sledgehammer at dawn, and Josh Miller was also in dorm days one and two. Transylmania, the slide slasher movies and sledge ever at dawn. So this is it starts with a wonderful joke on THX inglorious mono, like I might be in good hands here for this film, the story starts out a guy, he's moving out of his dorm. He has until Monday, as he's talking to his dad on the phone. Guy knocks on door. Says, hey, yeah, do I buy fives? Like, five? Oh, okay, fine. Keeps talking to his dad. Guy comes back, yeah, in 12 minutes. It's like, what? And it's delivered straight and fun, and it works. It's funny. I'm like, this shouldn't be as funny as I just thought it was. But this sets up firm Herman to find his place to live really fast. His hip picked up by picked up by a hitchhiking with a guy who keeps joking about murdering him, which is one of those kind of like, you know how Simpsons does the jokes of seven, yeah, where it's funny. Funny. Okay, I'm done with this, and that was funny again. This is one of those. He does it a lot. Stops by his best friend's place who is getting married the next day, which is he didn't know, because he wasn't invited. Why? Because the guy, guy's new wife hates him, and she comes in and sees who he talking to. He slugs her minute, knocks him down, all right, if he finds it, he does find a piece of paper in the street saying they're looking for a roommate. Desperately need a roommate right now, so he arrives. Hey, the room is fully furnished. Closet full of clothes, two Led Zeppelin posters on the wall. The guy who was threatening to murder him actually left with all of his stuff in the back of his truck. So now he's got a new wardrobe, and he calls up. He calls for a job, and his major was something like world history. So he calls the guy up and says, Yeah, I saw your job in the paper. I'm wondering what, what you're looking for? Well, what we really need is the guy who specializes in world history. I can do that great. Have you never had any experience? Yes, I can do that too. Your job come by tomorrow, make sure you're wearing a tie. So this is funny, fucking movie, really clever. And for some reason his job is actually just digging holes in the ground. But they all have to wear ties. And he starts to settle into his new location. He's got a roommate who plays music, not very good. He meets a woman on the park or something like that, and her little brother is just an asshole, constantly beating him up and coming at him. And of course, he gets in trouble when he strikes back at the guy, the woman, immediately you could tell this was written by men in their 20s, because she doesn't want to do anything else but go have sex with him. Of course, yeah, it goes so. But now you start to realize, hold on, is his roommate a serious. Killer in the backyard, there's a garden, and all the things planted in the garden are people's names, and he's there's also he's trying to find out who's stealing his socks. So there's some weird critter in the basement. But when he goes to the basement, it's like, I'm pretty sure they use the back of a sports arena. Turn around in and he runs out this weird tunnel. So it's just bizarrely clever in stupid ways. Time and time again, the girlfriend automatically sleeps with all his roommates, and he almost pitches them, but every time he sees them out of the corner of his eye, he looks back and they're like, Fine, not doing anything. So it's quite clever. His boy, his friend, comes to, I need you to kill my wife. Will you help me kill my wife? I hate her so much. After three days of marriage, oh, my God. So now his roommate, his roommate, is upset with him for something really weird, like he kills one of the roommates because they left their clothes on the floor, and that really upsets him. So the it turns into this weird battle thing at the end, with horrifically bad but wonderfully we're going for it fight scenes. And it's just a stupidly hilarious scene where the guy's sleeping in a lawn chair, and he keeps trying to hit him with like, chainsaws and stuff like that, but his extension cord isn't long enough, playing out. And it's funny as hell. I'm like, I really like this film. It was put out by amazingly, amazing schlock Film Factory. Just because it's bad, that doesn't mean it can't be great. That's their legacy. The acting is actually surprisingly good. It's not great, but it's incredibly good for a $500 film. Everybody does what they need to do. The Creator set the remastering of it made it look better than it ever looked. So they remastered the I was surprised to read it was mini DV, because it looks really good. I just figured it was a high end video, or if you have lenses, you can make mini DV look good. You can see there they show the cameras. They use a couple. It was, I mean, it was the little mini DV cameras, really, yeah, the little That's unreal, consumer ones you would buy, Best Buy or something at the time, amazing. So, yeah, it's definitely no no, no lenses. Oh, um, excuse me. They started making these guys were good because they started making short films for public access TV that they would start at the beginning of the week. Had to be done and presentable live on screen Friday night. And they did that for four years. Let's say it's just a public access TV show, and they got, somehow these high schoolers got control of this one block, and they just let them do whatever they wanted to for four years. And it paid off. It hit me a little bit like cannibal, the musical, where it's like, how, although this a lot more, that's a lot more elaborate. I'm like, How is this so good? Right? Makes no sense. It does. Let's see. Oh, they got they went to film school and got bored with it because they were ready to make stuff, and they didn't give a shit about all the stuff they're getting taught. So they just went and made this movie in Bloomington, Minnesota, as you do, they've got a frequently asked question saying on their website, Why does no one recognize your genius? We ask ourselves every that day, every day, clearly and it's some kind of conspiracy. We have a theory that a gnome or Gremlin or something of the like, is living in our telephone and is evilly intercepting all calls from Stevie Spielberg. We assume he'll let us call him Stevie once we kill that gnome. So I would say, If you love dumb, low brow humor, this is a must see. It was, and I part of talking it up a little rough, because I expected nothing turned out to be good like God. So where, how did you see this? Again, it was a blind buy from inner visions. Oh, I'm pretty sure it was. Think it's Severin, because they have this obnoxiously effective podcast where they sell their upcoming releases really, really well. And I remember them selling this. I remember hearing this from whoever put it out, selling it like you need to see this, but you said it's also on to be yes, to be in trauma TV. I'm super familiar with Josh Miller, because. And if you guys aren't watching this, and if you're not listening to it, you should be listening to best, best movies never made, which is his podcast, his partner in that is the guy that made that shark exploitation documentary. And they just have guest writers come in all the time and talk about their projects they were working on, you know, the the Spider Man movie with James Cameron, or all of these kind of things. And it's super, super interesting stuff, if you're into films that almost got made. Yeah, yeah, I would totally listen to regular but listen to several episodes. It is really good. They're just really smart, they're really funny, and their tagline at the end of every episode is, you know, we'll see you next week and we won't see you at the movies. Vanessa, you want to go next? Yeah, I do. I do. I'm a little ashamed of myself, I have to admit, okay, I went. There are a lot of really cool, up and coming filmmakers who have done just a couple of things, but those things have caught fire, and I really wanted to catch up on this one particular movie, so I took this chance watched Saint Maude, Dear God, your presence graces the air, and soon everyone will see, hi, Maud, yes, hi. It takes nothing special to mop her after the dying. You're prettier than last one, but to save a soul has quite something. Bless Amanda's body and bless her mind, which is shrouded in darkness. You when you pray, do you get a response like he's physically in me. It's how He guides me, my little savior. Hey, I thought that was you. What you up to? I'm a private carer. You're still nursing what happened? Oh, the good girl's cold. I just want to see you loosen up. I've got more important things on my mind. There's my little thing, Lord, he isn't real. Nothing worthwhile comes easy. Sorry. Don't say you must be the loneliest girl I've ever seen. I'm ready and open. I feel full of your love than ever before. I I have a responsibility. Oh yes, of course, this is life and death on another level. What if I'm getting it all wrong? All the good girls go to love from 2019 Yeah, feel good. Movie of the year. This is an a 24 joint, and it is the first film of two features this person is done so run tomato score, though, of 92% from critics and 67% from audience, the same as my movie. Yeah, same. I think I know why. Um, budget of 2.5 million, box office of 1.6 million. But I will say this is a covid movie. I'll get into that more in the trivia. But directed by Rose glass. She has eight credits, a lot of shorts, and this was her first film, and then the second one is super popular right now. It's called love lies, bleeding, yeah? And it's kind of everywhere. So this is a good it's nice to look at somebody's first when you know their second is super popular. I'm like, Okay, how did you improve? What's what's different, like with, I know, with the TV close, or whatever that movie is starring morph. Morphed Clark. Her name is spelled very funky. 29 credits. She was in Pride and Prejudice and Zombies crawl. Was sister. Clara in His Dark Materials, Mina in the Dracula miniseries, and, of course, played Galadriel in the recent Lord of the Rings, The Rings of Power, also starring Jennifer ale who has 67 credits to her name. I was like the whole time going she is so familiar. Who is this? She plays Elizabeth Bennett in the call. On Firth Pride and Prejudice mini series, which every female is required to watch it times. So I haven't seen that one. Oh, okay, are you a girl? I get it. Yeah, it's ridiculous. She also was in five episodes of Dead Ringers. She was in sunshine zero, Dark 30. She's been around. The story of this begins with a woman covered in blood watching a cockroach on the ceiling walk around. We zoom out to reveal a dead woman. An older woman is on a gurney in the room with her also covered in blood, cut to some time later, Maude is now a super devout Roman Catholic. She is entering a big house in a small English seaside town to do private care for a woman who is very, very, very sick. She's assigned to care for Amanda, who she sees as a real hedonistic person. We hear a lot of vO throughout this from Maude, where she kind of describes her thought process and her secret things, the ways that she thinks about different people, and she describes her Amanda as a B list former celebrity who was a former dancer and choreographer in the US. She this woman has stage four lymphoma, so is getting in home care. The previous caretaker that she's replacing warms warns her as she enters that this lady is a C word, but Maude finds herself totally smitten with Amanda. Immediately, she seems to be kind of attracted to her, and she turns that attraction into a desire to convert her before Amanda dies. This is difficult, as Amanda has friends coming in and out pretty much every day, because she's only got a few of them left to drink and fuck and do all the things you might want to do if you know you're not going to be around very much longer, and have money. She's also super enigmatic, and she kind of plays these head games with Maude. She feigns interest in her Catholicism, and it's hard to tell at first whether she actually cares or not, but you kind of have a sense that she probably doesn't. Maude is slowly becoming more and more obsessed with her and her own religion. At the same time, she begins to hurt herself. So this is a form of Catholicism that people won't like, whip themselves and do different acts of pain she earns herself. She puts a bunch of tacks in her shoes and walks, and these are all ways to get closer to God through her pain. One day, she runs into an old coworker from a local hospital who is shocked to hear that Maude, who she calls Katie, is still working after what happened through flashbacks, it may be that the woman in her care at the hospital was dying, and Maude did CPR and did it so hard that she broke through her chest cavity. Ouch. Yep. So we it's hard to know if that's real or if that's her imagined idea of what happened, but I think it's real from just how much this girl is like, Oh, you're working. That's interesting. So maude's Delusions of getting Amanda convert are broken after a birthday party goes terribly wrong, Amanda tells everyone that Maude is her little savior. They dress her up like a saint and make fun of her. Amanda then tells Maude that she's just trying to have fun with her and include her laugh with her, not at her. But Maude feels very victimized, and it's hard to tell whether she was just trying to get her loosened up. Amanda tells Maude that there is no God, and Maude slaps her. Maude is fired and she essentially falls off the Catholic wagon. She spends a night out just doing all the extremes. She fucks two different guys, she gets drunk, she I think she might do some drugs. She's just out there to just get to the bottom, bottom of herself. And of course, the next morning, she finds God again and follows some signs and believes that she could still get Amanda to turn back on that path, and that's the rest of the film is her attempts to do so. So this is a slow burn horror. It is not as shocking as I thought it would be from everything I heard about it, and I think it's also not as shocking to me, because I know about this format of Catholicism. So I was like, Oh yeah, texting the shoes, all right. Oh, I guess that's the big crazy thing. Okay. I mean, it sucks, but the VO does give it a nice sense of humor, which I really appreciated. It really helps move it along. Maude is definitely a girl of extremes. It's like, you know this person? Like, you know people who just fall into something so hard, and then they fall into something the opposite, so hard. She I enjoyed throughout this movie, the religious iconography. I loved that the hedonistic woman had all the markers of art for Saint slash godly person. In, she has her arms out like Christ. At one point, she has a high forehead with her hair pulled back like the saints. In Renaissance paintings, there's a picture of her from her dance where she's upside down, and she looks kind of like the imagery of Peter when He's crucified upside down, where it's this sort of heavenly essence to her. And on the opposite end, Maude is always in the dark. She's got shadows. She looks like she's being tugged along by a devil sash demon, if anything. And she seems to be worshiping God through a cockroach, which, by the way, I looked it up, cockroach is used in Bible to represent sin, earthly desires and humanity's fallen nature. So yeah, there's just an effortless godliness about the people around her, and she can't achieve it no matter how hard she scratches at it. The girl who she used to work with, we see that Maude has stolen a piece of blue scarf or fabric or something, and she's dressing herself up like Mary in her mirror. And the woman comes by to visit, and she's just in the Perfect Blue and has these beautiful blue eyes, and just instantly kind of looks like Mary. So I think mod is going crazy anyway, Truvia, this premiered at the Toronto International Film Fest. It was then required by acquired by Studio canal and 824 is screened at Fantastic Fest and the BFI Film London Film Festival. It was originally scheduled to be released in April 2020 but due to the pandemic, was postponed until october 2020 in the UK and january 2021, in the US. And it had a limited theatrical release. It was originally shot in the taller than normal, 1661, aspect ratio, as the director had wanted. She then it was then reframed in post production to widescreen, widescreen 239, and a few shots were extended horizontally with visual effects. Film reviewer Josh Larson of think Christian criticized the film, saying that its interests, it's interesting to me that aside from some of her basic devotional habits, we learn little about maude's faith. If she was raised in the church, we have no hint at it. If she's acting out of a zealous recent conversion, those details are left vague. I think this disinterest in the nature of maude's Faith is the fault of the film, which could be accused of exploiting both religion and mental illness for ghastly thrills. Film critic Mark Kermode lists this as his favorite film of 2020 calling it an electrifying debut. Yeah, this is an interesting movie. It definitely it's really good for first film. Like, I mean, it's incredible for first film, like, absolutely incredible. But there's also, you know, the pacing is a little laggy. It doesn't really have as strong of a story as maybe it could. There's it relies a lot on that sort of little religious tones. But I do think that it's doing an incredible job. So, yeah, I didn't like this movie. It's too fucking slow. It's very slow, so fucking downbeat. And then at the end, I remember kind of sitting up because, you know, all of a sudden you get a demon. What I was hoping was gonna happen. And then the movie was over five minutes later, yep. And all of that stuff is in her head anyway, yeah. So, yeah. So it's a little frustrating when you can see through the through the didn't to, I don't know, the cloth or whatever of like, what is going on, and you, you know that this is all kind of BS, and it's fun and it's interesting. You're like, fuck dude, demon, fuck dude. Like she's talking to God, oh my gosh, but the God is speaking in Welsh, cool, cool, very typical, I guess, yeah, it's, it's a slow ass burn, yeah, yeah, yeah. So have you seen love lies bleeding? No, but I'm, I'm hoping to very soon. Yeah, me too, Scott, I did not realize that was also her film. Yes, it does not look it looks like it is paced a little faster. My hope, yeah, my hope is so bad. Won't take much, all right? Well, I am putting 10 minutes on the board I chose for my film, nomads from 1986 was only here for a little while, but they did a good deal to the house. It started out to be their dream house. What do you think a place to call their own? I boy a home too good to be true, with a secret of. More horrifying than you can ever imagine. Nomads you've never run from anything in your life. Run from this. They are a nightmare, but they are as real as the terror you feel now in this city, in the middle of him on this city, city, Lesley, Ann down and the star of Remington, Steele Pierce, Brosnan, like you've never seen him before in a terrifying Story of the supernatural, if you've never been frightened by anything, you will be frightened by nomads. You guys seen this movie, no no. Could find no budget for it, but a box office of 2.3 million, which makes me think it had to have been a bit of a flop, because it looks like it cost much more than that. Brown tomatoes. Critics give it 36% the audience says, nay, 37% Oh, to which I say, You guys are all a bunch of fucking assholes, because I ended up liking this a lot. Is written and directed by John McTiernan, who has 11 credits. This is his first film. He follows this with a little movie called predator, and then die hard, and then the Hunt for Red October, The Last Action Hero. Die Hard With a Vengeance, The Thomas Crown Affair and the 13th warrior. So what has he done? Lightly, right, starring Lesley Ann down 81 credits, including Countess Dracula from beyond the grave and gates of darkness Pierce Brosnan, 109 credits, including Mars Attacks, four double Oh, seven movies as James Bond, and 94 episodes of Remington Steele and Anna Maria Monticelli, who has 28 credits, including smash Palace heat wave and the empty beach. It also stars Adam Ant, Mary warnov, Frank Doubleday and Francis Bay. The story goes as such, we start off meeting Dr Eileen flax, who is a smoking hot doctor in a hospital. Pierce Bronson, nope, when what looks like a homeless man is brought in, screaming and ranting and raving about something all in French, the homeless man is John Charles palmier, played by Pierce Brosnan. And this guy is so absolutely ridiculously handsome when he's drinking, sure his face is dirty and his beard is a little scraggly and his hair is a little messy, but none of that can hide the fact that this is just a gorgeous man. If you saw this guy homeless on the street and he asked you for change, you'd give it to him. You'd ask him if he needs a meal and a bed, and then you'd invite him back to your house and make love to him after feeding him. However, palmier dies quite suddenly in the middle of his rant, but we learn very shortly that he has somehow passed on his memories of the last several days in a psychic fashion to Dr flax and the rest of the movie is going to be then told through her flashbacks of his memories while she's trying to deal what he went through. So it turns out, pomier had just moved to Los Angeles with his wife, Nikki, after years of researching African and Inuit nomadic tribes, nomads, in other words, hence the title, he soon comes across a group of street punks and metalheads who apparently live in a black van down the road from his house where a brutal murder of a family has been committed, and this murderous activity seems to have attracted the Riff Raff. Palmier becomes fascinated by this group of punks because he's noting in them several resemblances to nomadic tribes, and he starts following them, taking photos, and this one night, he catches them in the act of what looks very much like killing a man and dumping him in a dumpster, they notice him and give chase, but he escapes them, or so it seems, they find him again, and he kind of gets caught up in how fascinating and unreal they are. He starts taking their pictures, things like that. But it sours pretty quickly, because it becomes clear that these are not ordinary humans. Oh, in fact, somehow they don't show up in his photographs, and sometimes they're not even visible to other people that they are around, which is really cool and creepy the way that this kind of gets revealed to you in the movie. His fascination turns to worry, however, as he becomes afraid for both his and his wife's lives. But also their souls. See, he's realized that the punks are actually evil spirits and demonic tricksters from ancient Inuit legends that somehow still exist in modern day societies. They disguise themselves as roaming humans that no one pays any attention to, because basically they look like vagrants. They're attracted by death and violence because they feed unfair and human souls. But unfortunately, once the punks realize that he is aware of that, they then try to kill him, to take his soul and make him one of them. There is this great scene where he's sightseeing on top of a skyscraper with his wife, and then one of the punks shows up and starts taunting him, but his wife can't even see the punk, and Pommier starts grappling with the Spirit. She's like, the fuck is going on? And he throws the spirit over the edge of the skyscraper, which has no effect, because the punk just starts laughing and disappears as he's falling. And it deserves to make his wife think he is a complete nut shot. Yeah. In the end, it seems that the punks have succeeded in killing him, but not before he's able to transfer his knowledge to Dr flax with the psychic request that she help his wife escape from the demonic punks who are now after her. As we enter the third act, will flax be able to convince Nikki that she is bringing a message from her dead husband, just as the punks surround the house and start breaking into attack, will Nikki and flax head for the California state line in a car chase scene with the demonic entities in their black van right behind them the entire time, and will the girls be horrified when they realize that one of the Demons chasing them look suspiciously like that of Jean Charles. I tried to watch this movie when I was a kid. It was just too much for me. There's too much story, too much going on, and I was not old enough to appreciate it. On this viewing, I ended up fucking loving it, and I felt like it had a real, near dark vibe to it, almost that I wish I had been old enough to understand back then. I just really dug it. Taglines. Remember that shitty tagline that we all make fun of from that one movie at crypticon, if you're not scared of this, whatever it was. I feel like that asshole wrote this tagline. This is on the poster. If you've never been frightened by anything, you'll be frightened by this. They don't even say by nomads, nope. Just this. Wanted to use it for three or four films. He's the weirdest. I have some trivia. Arnold Schwarzenegger stated in his memoir, Total Recall, that he was so impressed by the film's tense atmosphere, made on low budget, that he convinced his producers to hire John McTernan to direct predator, which was turned in his next film. This was Pierce brosnan's first leading role in a feature film. The film is included in the book fangorias 101 best horror movies you've never seen. And the heavy metal part of the film's highly atmospheric soundtrack was composed by rock musician Ted Nugent, known as weird uncle Ted. To everyone else in the industry, I think they kind of missed the boat. They had adamant in the movie, and they didn't have him score the movie. That seemed weird to me, but I'm not a huge adamant fan, but I think that this would have done well with this kind of funky new wave. Yeah, you got a dark wave going in there. I think that would have worked very well. This is really cool. It is available on prime and Yeah, as soon as Pierce Brosnan shows up, I was just like, oh my goodness, if any homeless man ever looked like this, I'd be like, I I will find you some change, sir. I'll be right back. Oh my god, nomads, I'm so glad you enjoyed it. And, God, I really want to check this movie out. That sounds anything. It is also kind of a slow burn, okay, but the the reveal when you start seeing what these, these punks are, because there's no monsters or anything like that, they're just these people, but they are doing unnatural things. And I was really like, oh, this was, like, the same year as near dark. I would absolutely pair this with near dark for an awesome double feature. And it doesn't feel like they're doing any, like, hokey, slightly racist, like Native American or Indian or tribal kind of thing he is only, he's only kind of comparing that to them. In the research I did, it said that they were Inuit trickster demons, but I don't remember that actually being said in the film. He was comparing them to that, oh, because that's what his a. His expertise is in. So I didn't get that at all. Yeah, really cool. I'm turning my time off. I got a minute left because I know how to fucking play this game. I am stressed out, even just hearing it for you, this buzzer, you know what you're gonna be more stressed out about I have the next sub genre topic, ooh. Okay, done, done. And whenever I'm struggling for something, I fall back on either an actor, a director, or this time a year, 1982 okay, okay, gotta pick a film from 1982 I'd rather you didn't pick a blockbuster film from 1982 Star Trek, The Wrath of Khan, I would say, let's not do that one. But just something genre E, all right, we'll see what's left. 1982 sounds a little narrow. Lot left sounds a little narrow. But okay, actually, 1982 is a pretty good year for Yeah, well, yeah. I mean, especially for the stuff that we like anything in the 80s, you're gonna see me bopping in on 8384 whenever I'm lost for a subject I like that podcast, we like so much that went away when they burned themselves out. 80s all over. That was the best podcast. I can understand how they burn themselves out, though, but yeah, what 80 did they make it up to? No, they basically do, you know, the form they basically talked about every single movie released in theaters, oh, by year per episode, or how they broke it down. They wouldn't have been able to do it by episode, like it was, like every four episodes or two months. Yeah, and yeah, they burnt themselves because they were watching all of them. Yeah, that's a lot. It was really good. But yeah, it's just No, I love that show, because every time they talk about something I hadn't heard of, I'd just be right on my phone. Okay, I gotta find this movie now. Yeah, that's really good for that. Okay, this is the part where we say thanks to everybody who's out there helping us spread the bandwidth.
