Debt to Cinema

Debt to Cinema 071: Nine Lives (2005)

Film is revered as the art form most capable of mimicking the wonder of life, but this anthology of nine interconnected stories told in single takes by Rodrigo Garcia raises the bar. The surreal, and often dark tone these snapshots capture makes for a troubling viewing experience, but what better way to champion strong female leads than with subject matter rarely seen on screen. This might not be a perfect exercise of form over function, but it is; however, an unforgettable journey into the lives of Los Angeleno women #IdBuyThatForADollar

Two Cents 037: Co-host Switcheroo (w/Scream 101)

The episode in which I was lucky Brennan from Scream 101 Podcast joined me because Steve fell asleep before recording, HBO isn’t sending Game of Thrones screeners out anymore, the 21 Jump Street/Men in Black flick is still a thing, Sony is making a standalone Venom franchise, I talk cool additions to the Amazon Echo line (and Brennan has first hand experiences), and Universal Japan is making a Nintendo Land. Plus, VR is coming to Six Flags and McDonalds, I do my Michael Keaton impression, MAX LANDIS, a WWE sequel to Surf’s Up, and the continuing adventures of Steven Soderbergh’s “retirement.”
