This week it’s a looser show all round, as Conor and Luke deviate from the show outline to discuss (at length) the development of Sean Connery’s unique laugh. The Horror Season wraps up with John Landis’ gory, practical-effect masterpiece An American Werewolf in London. We also talk about Act of Valor, co-directed by Mike McCoy and Scott Waugh. Table Time this week is all about the return of Mad Men! Conor also tells us about Michel Hazanavicius’ pre-Artist outing OSS 117 Cairo, Nest of Spies. Look forward to our brand new season next week, as we explore the Cinema of Australia, first up The Castle!
This week Luke talks a little more on the subject of Dr Jekyll and Mr Hyde as he takes in two Hammer Horror adaptations of varying quality. The Two Faces of Dr Jekyll and Dr Jekyll and Sister Hyde. The Horror Season keeps rolling with Rogue, a creature-feature set in the Australian outback. Table Time sees some comic book discussion as Conor and Luke gush about the luxuries and convenience of owning tablet computing devices. Star Trek!!!!
This week mysteries abound on the Movie Express podcast. We investigate a murder most foul in the Joan Crawford starring Mildred Pierce and tackle questions of Alien life and human frailty in Alien, the first of our new Horror Season. Table time sees a prolonged look at some our favourite Woody Allen films and some confused idioms.
