What does one do when locked in an abusive relationship? Well, clearly one should conspire with the mistress to murder the cad. In some movies, that would be the entire plot, but in Les Diaboliques, it’s only the prologue. Thanks for another fantastic fan suggestion!
This week, it’s a classic whodunnit! Do you believe the dashing rogue? The vengeful maiden? The deceased, but still very vocal samurai?! All this and a baby feature in the movie that leaves us to wonder at the nature of human perception. Join us for Akira Kurosawa’s Rashomon.
In the not too distant past, about two weeks ago, the rewards launched from a kickstarter that rescued our favorite show…
Bad movies were what originally brought together the dynamic duo of Ed and Dr. Zed, and that was thanks in no small part to the wonders of Mystery Science Theater 3000. We’ve talked up our love for this show in the past and now that the new season has finally arrived, we wanted to reflect on why this quirky concept captured our imaginations and give our thoughts on the new episodes.
Join us for a discussion about Mystery Science Theater 3000, and for the love of Big McLargeHuge, check it out on Netflix.
The ravages of war are countless, but the sting of betrayal is even worse. Especially when that betrayal involves your (ex?)husband pretending you’re his wife (which you are, he just thinks your not) in order to steal your money after condemning you to near-death (and the disfiguring injuries that lead him to not recognize you) in a Nazi concentration camp. Yeah, this one isn’t headed for a happy ending…or is it?
Join us for Phoenix.
Some people love dogs. Some people love cats. And some people, when emotionally aroused turn into cats and kill whoever wrongs them. In this movie, we’ll let you guess which kind of people we encounter.
Love triangles are nothing new, but we’re betting you haven’t encountered one quite like this before. This week we tackle a movie that has it all: love, drama, betrayal, war, and passion. In our second fan requested episode ever, we’re going to be peering into the depths of Jules and Jim.
Welcome Correction fans. Today we’re releasing a little bonus episode that we hope you enjoy. A few weeks ago, Ed and I got together to record a very impromptu behind the scenes episode. We talked about the origins of this podcast along with our approaches to editing and the specific equipment we use to produce the Criterion Correction. The entire segment was actually live-streamed to YouTube and if you’re interested in beginning your own podcast, you can check out the YouTube channel Zed’s Weekly Build for an even more in-depth look at the work that goes into hosting and editing a program like ours. So enjoy the extra episode and we’ll be back with another great Criterion movie on Thursday.
It creeps, it crawls, it oozes, and so of course, it’s going to terrorize some small town and threaten the lives of a young budding couple with a fast car that totally should have gotten more than a mild scolding for racing BACKWARDS down the street! Come on, Dave! No wonder the other officers don’t take you seriously…
Sorry, I digress. This week we watch…The Blob.
We’ve looked at boyhood, and we’ve peered behind the curtain of sisterhood. So tonight we’re going to take a look at fatherhood by studying a group of foxes. Join us for Wes Anderson’s The Fantastic Mr. Fox.
