Two Cents 085: Oscars So WTF

The episode in which our hero from Bulworth and Dick Tracy finds himself in a sticky situation, the passing of Bill Paxton, the state of Playstation VR, Hellboy, Nightwing, and Devon Sawa?! Steve caught the apparently similar Get Out and A Cure for Wellness, while I have had HEALTH’s Disco 3 on repeat while exploring Thumper (PSVR).  Plus, Netflix looking very Bright (so we try to calculate its money pool), 5G tests are coming this year, and VR in space!

Debt to Cinema

Debt to Cinema 068: Mean Streets

We’ve featured films from revered directors on this show, but few as prestigious or hard working as Martin Scorsese. This is his first real movie, the chapter that began it all, a coming of age mafioso hang out flick, that premieres much of the style he would later master in Goodfellas and Casino. Despite its flaws, this slice of New Hollywood is an interesting adventure through the neighborhood of the filmmaker when he still had the angst of youth rushing through him.
