In this episode, we take a look at both the 1935 and 1982 versions of She, fantasy adventure movies based on the works of H. Rider Haggard! The 1935 film tells a competent story filled with decent performances, including the only starring role of Helen Gahagan Douglas, as the titular She Who Must Be Obeyed. The 1982 movie is a dumpster fire, but Megan really liked the birds in that one part.
In this episode, we take a look at one of Ed Wood’s contributions to movie making with the Bride of the Monster! This is one of his collaborations with Bela Lugosi, who looks and sounds like he’s having a blast being on camera again, even though this would prove to be his last speaking role on film. Plus, Tor Johnson lumbers around as Lobo, and Megan evaluates his worthiness as a quality goon.
In this episode, we take a look at the 2017 Darren Aronofsky film, mother! It’s very clearly a Biblical allegory involving the extra character of Mother Earth, played by Jennifer Lawrence, that quickly turns into a Where’s Waldo of “Hey Look It’s That Bible Story!” While it’s not a very good movie, Eric still somehow kind of finds it intriguing.
