Who’s ready for some Akira Kurosawa!? NOT US! Ollie and I sit and chat about “Throne of Blood” a movie that liberally adapted from “MacBeth” but that goes its own way. I liked it a lot. Ollie . . . had thoughts. It’s pretty rad and pretty sad and everyone acts pretty bad. But, it’s a classic!
That a ghost! Ollie and I are back with the Ecstasy of Influence to talk about 1944’s “The Uninvited!” We’re also getting increasingly frustrated at movies about women in which the women the movie is about have no voice but are assumed to be bad and also maybe lesbians and also young women are given to older men. It’s a thing and we’re . . . kinda tired of it?
It’s an episode within an episode! Incepisode? Ollie and I had a weird conversation the other day about “Crimson Peak” and rather than expose you to the entire thing, we decided to talk about it and play you most(?) of it but not the parts that get a little too hot under the collar. It’s our gift . . . to you.
Ollie and I present a special non-del Toro movie that was sold to audiences as very much a del Toro movie! “The Orphanage” is spooky, heartbreaking and wonderful and NOT a del Toro movie. But, he helped get it made and helped start the career of J. A. Bayona, so we’re covering it here! Enjoy this special BONUS!
