Oh, hey - we missed you, too! We're here to talk to you about love, life, and the pursuit of happiness. This week, it's a Collin's-favorite-directors special as we talk Billy Wilder's The Apartment and Paul Thomas Anderson's Punch-Drunk Love. Are we all just lonely creatures desperately hoping for someone to come along and make the world feel a little less heavy? Probably.
Judson & Collin are here to contradict everything they said about the Oscars last week as they examine the legacy of The Artist and discuss Charlie Chaplin's City Lights and how it gave the silent film industry a small boom before the talkies took complete control of Hollywood. They also briefly discuss HBO's Girls and give a shoutout to the gentlemen of the Atlantic Screen Connection.
Judson & Collin are back and talkin' horror this week! They talk Kubrick's horror masterpiece The Shining & Robert Eggers masterful debut The VVitch; they also talk about American sexual Puritanism, The Birth of a Nation, the moon landing, even work in a mention of There Will Be Blood - fancy that!
Judson & Collin are joined by Star Wars expert Jason Ward, the editor-and-chief of MakingStarWars.net and co-host of Now, This is Podcasting!, to talk about Star Wars: A New Hope and Akira Kurosawa's The Hidden Fortress, which inevitably branches into a discussion about Star Wars in general and the overall influence that Kurosawa has had on Star Wars.
