Episode #90: Death Stars, or just plain Killers

October 26th, 2013
  • Heathers
  • God Bless America
  • Natural Born Killers

  • That's no Moon...it's a cadre of psychopaths!!!

    This week we're lining 'em up & knocking 'em down as we descend headfirst into the psyche of the killer.  How very, right?

    Instead of your typical feast of murderous movie moppets (Silence of the Lambs, American Psycho, Taxi Driver, etc), we went with a more lighthearted, yet macabre selection.  Ya know, a few dishes from the brain tumor & corn nuts section of the buffet.

    So F$%^ yourself gently with a chainsaw, E SKEE MOE.  Turn off the TV & be somebody.  Or just kill somebody & get famous.  

    Episode #89: Remakes as Equals - True Grit

    October 19th, 2013
    Saddle up pilgrim 'cause it's another comparison episode. 

    True Grit
    1969 -vs- 2010:  The Duke -vs- The Dude

    Comparing these two was no easy task, but rest assured buckaroos, we were up to the challenge.  

    The decades that divide these two are the key to understanding their thematic disconnect.  While this can be said about many re-imaginings that span more than a few years, those films lacked one vital component that make all the difference here: The Coen Brothers.  More specifically, the Coens and their take on the core of this story: Retribution:  A theme both naively earnest & borderline righteous in sixty-nine, now draped in a post-modern cowl of moral ambiguity & pragmatic obligation.  

    My, oh my, how the years make a difference.

    But enough talk.  NOW to LISTEN.  Grab a White Russian and enjoy 'Cause this is just like... our opinion man.  Revenge is a dish best served with a gun in it.  Here we come to snuff the Roosters...  ahh yeeeeaaaeeeayyyhhhh.  There - the 1 song that didn't make the cut ('cause Matt forgot).

    Here's a trailer for the 1969 film using the same moments as the trailer for the 2010 film.  Kinda cool

  • Swimming with Sharks

  • Take this job and...  you know...

    While most toil day to day in vocations that aren't necessarily ideal, we must never forget that no matter how bad it is:

    It can always be worse.

    A lot worse...

    See, we can write a short episode description....

    Episode #87: insANIME

    Spirited Away/

    Once again, it's TOON-TIME!

    This week it's a hop, skip & a jump across the Pacific as we collect all your base (now they are belongs to us) and swan dive into the sometimes crazy ink pot of Anime.  

    While we Sluts are far from connoisseurs when it comes to this subject, we nonetheless have our select favorites.  Favorites that span generations.  They tackle intense & sinister themes.  They capture our imaginations with their ambition & sincerity. 
    This sandwich of insanity has flavors that may unsettle your mouth; trust us - it's worth it for the soul nutrients.
