Episode 82: Nobody Wants That Much Dostoyevsky: Part 1

0082 Kurosawa 1We return triumphant, dear listeners, with the first part of a massive two-part episode about Akira Kurosawa! That’s right! Strap on your oversized samurai sword and keep track of your gun, because we’re going to get into the nitty gritty of Kurosawa’s career.

For this epic undertaking, we are joined once again by movie ubernerd and fellow podcaster, Noel Thingvall!

If you would like to drink along, we recommend either Avalon Cabernet Sauvignon or Apothic Red, because they both start with A (for Akira!) and because they are tasty. Or, if you are the non-drinking sort, try Cherry Pomegranate Super Chill Ice, which is what Noel was drinking for this event.

Episode 58: Superposition Yeti

0058 Hammer FilmsDear listeners, we have a great episode for you this week, because we nerd out about Hammer Films with our erudite friend and author, Pat Harrigan! We traipse through the history of the famed British studio, mentioning favorite films and actors along the way.

And, as you can probably tell by our diction in this episode, we have had plenty of Cocobon Red Blend wine. You should, too!

Episode 43: Ri-cray-culous

0043 AdaptationsThis week, we talk about a fine selection of book-to-movie adaptations! And yes, dear listeners, even though this episode runs extra long, not all of it is about The Lord of the Rings.

If you would like to drink along while we get down with our literary selves, we suggest a bottle of Foghead Red Wine. That’s right. Just plain Red wine this week, baby!
