Our long over-due episode, the first in the whole bloody affair, a bride wronged by her ex-lover, on a mission of revenge to hunt down those that took her life and that of her child. 2003 classic, Kill Bill Vol1 recorded semi-live at the New Beverly Cinema in the heart of Hollywood.
Our long-overdue episode is in honor of the late, great Richard Donner - the all-American classic, the man of steel, the man of tomorrow, and the last son of Krypton Superman. Specifically Superman II from 1980, one of the best tellings of the man of steel as he faces off against his most iconic nemesis, Zod.
One of our favorite summer films, with a legendary contentious behind the scenes production that is not part of Hollywood history.
We take a look back at one of the most impactful films in cinema history, and the film that made us chase a career in entertainment, the original Star War, in honor of its 44th anniversary, the fairytale of heroes, villains, and aliens from a thousand world. A story of rebellion and romance, from the mind behind THX-1138, directed by the amazing George Lucas.
And one of the key films our later father showed us, and the ones we enjoyed so very often with our late father
The third episode in our virus in cinema series, this time a retrospective look at the incredible video game series from NaughtyDog and created by Neil Druckmann. We review the first two games, set in a post-pandemic America and the effects of survivors guilt on those that struggle everyday to make a new life. And the comparisons between the still on-going COVID-19 pandemic and the loss of nearly 900k Americans.
This episode is dedicated to our later father, Peter Escobar, Jr, our friend Ricardo Sandoval and the countless other who have been lost to the COVID-19 pandemic.
Our long delayed episode on the classic late stage capitalist zombie flick, dawn of the dead. When there is no more room in hell the dead will walk the earth. The second film in our virus in cinema series, looking back after one year of COVID-19, and the new world we find ourselves living in.
This episode is dedicated to our late father, Peter Escobar Jr (1957-2021) Thank you for everything dad, and for embracing our love for cinema and all things nerdy. You will always be with us, and in our hearts. Love you dad.
The first in our "Virus In Cinema" series, we take a look back at one of the most horrifying and realistic outbreak films to come out of the UK, that singlehandedly revitalized the zombie film genre, and gave us one of the best films in modern pop culture. And try to answer the question if we will ever see the long-awaited 28 Months Later, and what that would be like in a post-COVID-19 pandemic world.
We close off Women's History Month by taking a look back at a forgotten classic of the French New Wave, Cleo From 5 To 7 directed by the iconic Agnes Verda, often credited as the Mother of the French New Wave. And discuss how this amazing and flawed film broke ground in inverting the trope of the cool French girl and critiqued the male gaze and gave women of the 1960s a voice in the otherwise male-dominated art movement, and mocked the inherited sexism of the genre the film industry at the time, issues that persist to this day, with the strictly enforced dress code of the Cannes Film Festival, and the lack representation of women in the French film industry.
In celebration of Women's History Month, we take a look at Daisies, directed by Věra Chytilová, one of the most subversive and anarchistic films of the short-lived and often overlooked Czechoslovak New Wave, the Eastern Blocks answer to the counter-culture movement of the West. A wonderful piece of youthful freedom and revolt against the strict Soviet regime and a mockery of bourgeoisie decadence.
