Adulting can be hard. What happens when you lose your apartment and your best friend in a single fell swoop? Well, you rebound by going on a few adventures to France and…your undergraduate institution. They say you can’t go home again, but really what they meant is you should never go back to your old dorm. Join us this week for Frances Ha.
Vorpal sword? Check. Manxome foe? Check. Burbling beside the Tumtum tree? Check. An ordinary bumbling goofus tossed into a world of court intrigue, capitalist plunder, and a monster-laden forest? Wait, are we still talking about the poem? Who’s this princess? Why is this castle crumbling to dust? Join us to find out with Terry Gilliam’s Jabberwocky.
What could be nicer than a romp through the Siberian forest on the hunt for diamonds? Surely, we’ll just be in store for a peaceful nature documentary, right? Hmm, love triangle forming? Horrible natural disasters coupled with technical difficulties? This might be a little bleaker than we thought…
This week: a short episode for a short movie. Do you get aggravated when a character uses Wikipedia to identify the supernatural creature infesting your horror movie?

Visit lovely Winnipeg! Sunny Winnipeg! Hockey-filled Winnipeg! A city full of life (and forks in forks)! A city with many lovely boulevards (some that don’t appear on maps). Visit Winnipeg, the citiest of cities that ever citied (and be sure to escape via train).
Trick or treat! On this Halloween night, we have a ghoulishly spectacular surprise episode for you. Are you dreaming? Can you be sure? Did that ominously tall and imposing figure really summon Jawa raiders from the depths of hell to…I guess, you know…steal bodies and…shrink them down…and put them to work in some alternate world with a lot of gravity.
BOOOOOY, stop asking questions and beware the Tall Man’s buzzing balls of DEATH in…Phantasm!
