First of our nightly live Sundance recaps. This time on Amanda Kernell’s Sami Blood and Julia Decourau’s Raw, two foreign films that explore young women struggling through drastic life changes and humans treated as animals. But only one has a hefty dose of grossout cannibal camp.
Taking our cue from Rogue One, we assemble our own gaggle of misfit freaks to take on the latest superweapon of the Disney Empire. The return of Frankie and Anthony make this our biggest cast yet and a long one to boot, so here are the time jumps:
- 2:15 – The Ghost of Star Wars Past and expectations coming into Rogue One.
- 17:00 – Rogue One credits (and immediate Godzilla tangent).
- 20:20 – Checklist of Frankie’s “Rogue One: What I Don’t Want to See!” video from the first Rogue One and whether the final product passes the test.
- 37:15 – Is Rogue One the best war movie in years? And other questions to which the answer is “no.” General review arguing from here on out.
When it comes to the gratuitous nudity, there’s a lot to cover. This amazing joke and more as we cover Paul Verhoeven’s new French film Elle and his classic sex-thriller Basic Instinct.
Also, we reveal the greatest movie trivia in film history and the obscure Alan Thicke movie we will, unfortunately, always remember him for. RIP Mr. Thicke.
If you die in Westworld, you die in real life. If you have gay sex in Westworld, you’re still not gay in real life. These and other dizzying complexities of Nolan The Younger’s Westworld discussed in crystal-clear audio.
First podcast appearance of Anthony.
Is it Chan-wook Park or Park Chan-wook? How good is Chan-wook’s latest, The Handmaiden? And how fucking good is his 2003 classic, Oldboy? (Rhetorical question.)
Special appearance by the Script Doctor, who promises a sure-fire fix to Oldboy‘s only screenplay flaw.
