Jason takes Judy for a stroll down the hallucinogenic and circuitous Mulholland Drive, David Lynch’s masterpiece. Judy parses her second first impressions, Jason chimes in with some yay’s or nay’s, and the discussion explores the characters, the twisting story, and the countless symbols in the movie.
For what it’s worth, we love Channing Tatum, Mila Kunis, and Eddie Redmayne. We’ve even been known to enjoy the output from the Wachowskis’. Who would’ve thought we’d be so frustrated with their collaboration in Jupiter Ascending. Join Judy and Jason as they laugh about the plot, the characters, the action scenes, the bizarre use (and misuse) of bees, and the strange way in which a film called Jupiter Ascending features so many moments of Jupiter falling.
In our second podcast, we reflect on the first three Harry Potter films: Harry Potter & the Whimsical Misappropriation of Turbans, Harry Potter & the Chamber of Secretions and Inferences, and Harry Potter & the Expectant Patronus. We reflect on the style of the first two compared to the third, the development of the actors, the refinements in the series, and spend way too much time laughing at our attempt to figure out the logic of the second film.
Check back for two more podcasts giving our once-over to the rest of the Harry Potter series.
After a rather lengthy hiatus, I’m back talking about film, and this time I’ve brought some help.
I think this is the format my future discussions about film will probably take for the foreseeable future, if only for convenience and simplicity. (I’ve been hard-pressed to find the time to write about film, especially at the expense of my dissertation.)
As our first podcast, our format undoubtedly has room for improvement. I’m eager to learn what others think of the style and content and what changes you’d like to hear.
We’ve already recorded a three-part podcast series giving a once-over to the Harry Potter franchise, and plans for many more conversations to come. Be sure to leave comments and if you like what you’re hearing, offer suggestions about other films you’d like for us to cover, and subscribe to our channel on SoundCloud.
