Episode Date
Final Films (w/ Quentin Tarantino)
03:18:44

For this very special episode, we are joined again by Mr. Quentin Tarantino to talk about Final Films from directors. By "Final Films", we are of course referring to the last film that a director did - the one that closed out their career. This is the first time Quentin has done a proper episode with us and we were very excited to have him pick "5 Films Because" with us on this topic. We hope you enjoy the conversation - it's one of our favorite episodes that we've done!

5 Films Because

To kick off 2021, Elric and Brian go back to the very beginnings of the show where they declared that their 5 film lists would "5 Films Because" as to open things up for the highlighting of not just favorites and "best" films in a category, but rather anything they'd like to highlight. As such, both of them have chosen 5 films to talk about this episode and there wasn't any rhyme or reason to the choosing. Just 5 films they each wanted to watch and films that hadn't really been chosen as picks on the show before. Enjoy!

For this very special episode, we are doing something we almost never do - which is release a Patreon Exclusive episode into our main feed so all the listeners can have a chance to hear what it is we do in terms of the bonus content over on our Patreon. This is one of our Monthly "Hangout Episodes" where we discuss what we've been watching, offer Blu-ray, streaming and film book picks and also have some kind of main topic as well. This Hangout episode is one we actually thought about as a regular episode at one point and it has to do with each of us catching up with some films that have been recommended on the show in the past that we've meant to watch but hadn't gotten around to until now.

New Beverly Calendar: August, 2019
01:33:48

Since the New Beverly is mostly playing ONCE UPON A TIME... IN HOLLYWOOD this month, Elric, Brian and Phil took this opportunity to talk to the film's Editor Fred Raskin about the movie. If you're unfamiliar with Fred's work, he's edited other films for Tarantino such as DJANGO UNCHAINED and THE HATEFUL EIGHT as well as both GUARDIANS OF THE GALAXY films and three consecutive FAST AND FURIOUS movies starting with TOKYO DRIFT. On top of that, he also cut BONE TOMAHAWK and THE HOUSE WITH A CLOCK IN ITS WALLS! So Fred is the main guest interview for most of this episode and in the last section, all the matinees and kiddie shows playing at the theater in August are discussed. Be warned though, ONCE UPON A TIME...IN HOLLYWOOD is covered in great detail on this episode with major spoilers throughout, so please be aware of that before listening! Enjoy!

Episode 30 - An Exploitation Sampler
01:54:33

After going in depth on John Carpenter and Documentaries, Elric and Brian go breezier with this "Exploitation Sampler" episode, in which they each choose a film from the categories of Blaxploitation, Hicksploitation, Canuxploitation, Sexploitation and one 'wild card' category of exploitation. This will hopefully just be a lead in to deeper dives into many if not all of these categories at a later date.
