023 – The Raven!

Ollie and I can’t wrap our heads around this one. It’s . . . well it’s not *good* by any stretch of the imagination. It’s 1935’s “The Raven” and it’s got some talent on screen but the talent isn’t doing anything particularly . . . talented. Also, it’s definitely *not* “The Incredibly True Adventure of Two Girls In Love.”

Ollie and I talk Book 2 of the 1818 Edition of “Frankenstein!” This week, The Monster shares his side of the story, we get some thematically important backstory to an otherwise unimportant character and The Monster gets all whiny and “dudebro-y” about needing a woman. It’s gross!
