In this third episode we become entranced by the bewitching Lady From Shanghai, chat about Hammer horror’s penchant for cleavage and bring a couple of things like Tim Burton’s Alice In Wonderland movie and John Connolly’s Book Of Lost Things. Also a historic week, because we have our first listener questions! Listen in delight as we struggle to answer them intelligently.

    Enjoyed episode 2. Good show.

    I don’t really have a question at this time, but I was thinking about what you were saying about Orson Wells’ movies that never got made and it might be fun to do a show about other movies that never got made. For example Alejandro Jaderoski’s (I don’t think I spelled that right) Dune, Dan Aykroyd’s Ghostbusters in Hell, Vincent Wards Alien 3, David Finchers Rendevoux with Rama (or even David Finchers Alien 3 ;)) Orson Wells’ Heart of Darkness. The list is endless.

    The peice on the novel The Book of lost things was cool, I’ll check that book out. A book you might like to check out is The Lies of Locke Lamora by Scott Lynch. It’s a kind of fantasy crime novel. Kind of like Sword and Sorcery and Confidence Tricksters. Check it out, and it’s sequel, Red Seas under Red Skies.

    Enoying the show lads. Keep up the good work
