The Trouble With Harry - Supplement

 While we try to cover as much as we can in our episodes, there's always more to see, hear, and read about a movie that can enhance your viewing experience. If you enjoyed our episode on The Trouble With Harry, here's a few extra bits you might find interesting...

The Trouble With Harry

Noel Thingvall returns to the show as we grab some shovels and unearth one of Alfred Hitchcock's most unusual films, the strangely sweet black comedy The Trouble with Harry. Listen as we examine the title corpse's post-mortem career as a small town matchmaker, marvel at the film's clever dialogue and gorgeous autumnal location photography, and reveal the connection between Hitchcock and the 2002 thriller Phone Booth. Warning: Contains explicit language, spoilers, and a particularly sinister closet door.


Our theme song is "Nostalgia TV" by Edward Jonathan Blakeley through Lynne Publishing.

The Black Hole

 
Chris Chipman joins this episode we voyage into the dark years of Disney and come out the other side to discuss the 1979 science fiction/disaster film The Black Hole. Listen as we comment on how the movie merges the technology of contemporary science fiction flicks with the somber style and pace of older features, explore the strange religious and philosophical elements of the film's story, and imagine what would happen if Ripley were trapped aboard the Cygnus. Warning: Contains explicit language, spoilers, and Ernest Borgnine action figures.

Scrooged - Supplement

While we try to cover as much as we can in our episodes, there's always more to see, hear, and read about a movie that can enhance your viewing experience. If you enjoyed our episode on Scrooged, here's a few extra bits you might find interesting...

Scrooged

 

We're revisiting Charles Dickens' immortal classic as warped through the comic sensibilities of Bill Murray as we watch Richard Donner's 1988 Christmas hit Scrooged. Listen as we discuss Murray's manic take on the miserly main character, consider the implications of updating A Christmas Carol to the Reagan years, and swoon over Carol Kane's adorably violent performance as the Ghost of Christmas Past. Warning: Contains explicit language, spoilers, and chronologically-disordered viewings of Iron Man 2.
