He’s dark! He’s a man! He’s Darkman! In 1990, Sam Raimi took a chance on creating an original superhero(?) monster(??) thing(???) for the modern age, and he totally succeeded! It’s “Darkman!” Also, I’m very sick, so I sound like garbage! “Darkman!”
Hey let’s go… talk about “My Neighbor Totoro!” Honestly, what can you say about a nearly perfect film? It is what it is. It’s “My Neighbor Totoro!”
Are you ready to get GLOOPY? It’s the gloopiest film yet: 1986’s “The Fly” by David Cronenberg! I just love this sweet short film and Willow… has her thoughts about it. It’s Canadian! It’s gross! It’s gross and Canadian! It’s “The Fly!”
Some movies are just a joy to watch and “Castle in the Sky” is one of those movies. Ghibli’s first film, it has all of the hallmarks of Miyazaki’s work to come: pirates, airships, environmental stuff, robits. It’s all there. And, it’s just a dang delight.
In which Willow and Phil disagree slightly on the merits of this episode’s movie, but do agree that we have no idea what the Rules of Engagement even mean. It’s 1986’s “Top Gun!”
It’s here! Our look at Terry Gilliam’s “Brazil!” It made Willow hide under the blanket!
Da doo Ran Ran! It’s Akira Kurosawa’s “Ran” and it kicks BUTT! We really liked this one, so it’s a bit of a love fest. Can you blame us? “Ran!”
It’s Morbin’ Time! So, Willow watched “Morbius” and wanted to talk about it. I’m sorry. We’ll be back next time with “Ran” I swear to God.
You know what’s a weird movie? “The Thing!” You know what’s a perfect movie? “The Thing!” This week we’re looking at a favorite film of both of ours, John Carpenter’s “The Thing!” What more is there to say? It’s Thing-tastic!
All spheres are rock albums but not all rock albums are spheres. If that makes sense to you, welcome to our discussion of Alan Parker’s Roger Waters’s “Pink Floyd: The Wall!” the movie of the stage show of the album of the trauma!
