024 – Modern Times!

Ollie and I are back to talk Charlie Chaplin’s 1936 masterpiece “Modern Times.” Does Ollie like it, though? Is the Little Tramp a bit too much? What’s with the age difference? How do you pronounce “gamin?” Does a chicken make a good funnel? Are we all in love with Paulette Goddard? Find out!

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.”

 

022 – The Bride Of Frankenstein!

Ollie and I canNOT get enough of that tall monsterman! So, we’re back with Guillermo del Toro’s Ecstasy of Influence to discuss 1935’s “The Bride of Frankenstein!” Is Colin Clive mostly dead? Is the Bride really THE BRIDE? And, just how gay is this movie? A whole bunch or a WHOLE BUNCH? The answers may surprise you.

Frankenstein Part 4 – Loneliness

This week, we bid adieu to Mary Shelley’s “Frankenstein” by talking a bit about its themes. We also talk about del Toro’s relationship with the text and whether we think it would be a good idea for him to direct an adaptation or just let it go. And then, we reveal that in the next episode, we’ll actually be talking about “The Bride of Frankenstein.” So, whatever.

Frankenstein Book 3 – Batman, Wolfman . . . or Dracula?

We did it! We finished the book! Ollie and I conclude the preliminary read-through of the 1818 edition of Mary Shelley’s “Frankenstein!” Next week? We discuss EVERYTHING!
