Battle Royale and Captain America 2: Death Too Soon
Episode #55 of the Why Haven’t You Seen This Film Podcast where my guests are Jeff and Chris from the Really Awful Movies Podcast who ask me why I hadn’t seen Battle Royale, a violent Asian film that draws a lot of parallels to the Hunger Games except that it came out ten years earlier and was banned due to the violence. And in return, I ask them why they hadn’t seen Captain America 2: Death Too Soon, the 1979 TV movie that had very little to do with the actual comic book, but had Christopher Lee in it.
InSession Film #129
Fantastic Four & Top 3 Superpowers
This week on the InSession Film Podcast, we talk a lot about the mess of Fox’s new Fantastic Four, which of course features some interesting characters with some well-known superpowers. And who wouldn’t want to have a superpower? The idea of being able to fly or read people’s minds is endlessly fascinating and it’s fun to think about how it would change our lives in the real world. So, going off of our discussion of Fantastic Four, we decided to talk about our favorite superpowers that we’d like to have that we’ve seen used in film.
Also this week Extra Film: Vacation and Paper Towns

Chat with Tichina Arnold
Hosted by Candice Frederick, Kimberly Renee, and ReBecca Theodore-Vachon, “Cinema in Noir” covers the latest casting news, reviews, and interviews with the best and brightest talent in film.

In this 1979 Cannon Group musical mega-flop, competing acts take to the stage in a song contest not unlike the Euro Vision one. Anyway, a Canadian folk duo is robbed of their potential song contest win when BIM Records sabotages their performance with a high-pitched squeal from backstage (it’s folk music, so who would know?) Soon though, the young Canadians are tempted in a Garden of Eden fashion (yep, that’s where the title’s derived, not the other Beatles’ Apple) We find out that underhanded deals are being signed (hey, it’s the music business after all) and that in the far future (1994!) the music industry became so powerful and so indelibly linked to everyone’s very existence, that the label BIM has soared to basically Apple-like prominence in the zeitgeist (Apple Computers that is). Guess nobody saw Napster coming. In its one-star review, Slant said, “every song in the goddamned movie sucks.” Our slant is that there are a few good ones that’ll leave you humming for days, and that this disaster is pretty damn fun, with hilarious set-pieces and lost-in-translation elements (it was conceived as a Hebrew stage musical). Please take a bite out of this Apple (and “don’t mind the maggots” to quote the Stones’ Shattered)
Also this week #50B The Bite
As Inside/ Out takes the film world by storm, the chicks travel 20 years back in time and review Toy Story, followed by all other feature films Pixar has produced so far. We find out that some films are more Pixar than others and some are definitely more memorable than others (or maybe some of us just should have done some more re-watching). Sofia finds out that she is actually a Pixar fan while Mette fangirls about Finding Nemo and Nik speaks of her least secret Pixar fantasy (this podcast also serves as her application to work at the Pixar cafeteria).
We apologize for the length and also the lateness of this episode.

Thompson’s classic novel “Fear and Loathing In Las Vegas”.

Thompson as well as the return of the event movie plus much more!!
