Ever since the inception (cue the noise in your own head) of our "Epic-sodes," this has been on the table for obvious reasons. Sweeping, grandiose & literally biblical in its scope and span, Ben-Hur was one of the first mega-million-epics.
Holding Hollywood's first ever eight-figure budget, tens of thousands of extras and a climactic chariot scene that puts even modern CG movies to shame, Ben-Hur has established itself as an all-out fundamental pillar in the foundation of 20th century epic films.
You can see why it'd be pretty silly if we skipped this one.
We chose this over The Ten Commandments, so you'll have to sate yourself on only one dose of das Heston. We'll do it again - we're MANIACS!!

Disabilities be damned this week as we deliver an episode complete with comedy, romance & swashbuckling bravado. We try to be the Three Wise Sluts (though there are only 2 of us - & we're not apes exactly). We wanted to cover a wide range with our salute, and what with the heavy subject matter, we hope you approve of our selections. As all were products of the later 80's, "political correctness" was an underdog; filmmakers/comedians were able to skirt the lines of bad/good taste with, shall we say, broader strokes.
Let's just hope that we do these justice. Please do offer suggestions if you feel these did not hit the topic just right. Also, here is a link to the prison play sketch we referred to for Richard Pryor

It's a new year and we all know what that means: It's time for another Cinema Slut Gag Reel/Blooper Reel!
It was a fun 2014 (as you will hear this week). We bring you our 3rd collection of outtakes, gags, B-sides & various other flubs we had along the journey that was this year.
Now don't go thinking that just because we make (quite) a few mistakes, that means we are NOT the Aquilonian gods of podcast renown & sluttish wonder. Far from it. We are destined to wear these jeweled crowns upon our troubled brows til time ceases to be... or at least until we decide to take 'em off.
This one is especially long for a flubby. With that in mind, maybe break it up over 2 listens if you wish. There are some choice moments, there just happen to be many of them that stacked up this year. Next week we risk getting political. Until then, enjoy our folly to make you jolly.
(Here's the Key & Peele clip to which we were referring)
