Suspiria

Even though Halloween is over, we're still keeping it spooky. That's right, we're talking about our favorite "witch dance" movie of the year, Suspiria. This week we're so lucky to have the hosts of 'The Bechdel Cast' podcast, Jamie Loftus and Caitlin Durante, on the program. The crew discusses their favorite aspects of the Halloween season. For Caitlin it's the pumpkin shaped Reese's peanut butter cups, for Alonso it's the appearance of the sign banning silly string on Hollywood Boulevard, and for Jamie it's the chance to buy a "Twerking Mummy" toy at CVS. Plus, the gang helps some previously failing movies pass The Bechdel Test. And as always, staff picks.

In news, the Wachowski's are potentially retiring, FilmStruck closes down shop, and the MPAA turns 50.

Weekly Movie Recommendations:

Ricky - Hereditary
Alonso - Monrovia, Indiana
Jamie - Doubt
Caitlin - Paddington and Paddington 2

PLUS, we have two Spotify playlists. One is for Movie Soundtracks and the other is for Movie Scores. Check 'em out!

Next week we're discussing Bohemian Rhapsody with Katie Walsh

With Caitlin Durante, Jamie Loftus, Alonso Duralde, and Ricky Carmona.

It’s 1969. Four guests check into the El Royale Hotel: a priest (Jeff Bridges), a vacuum salesman (Jon Hamm), a singer (Cynthia Erivo), and a hippie (Dakota Johnson). They all - save one - have something mysterious going on behind the scenes and the hotel itself is not what it appears to be. When they check in, there’s a storm a-brewin'.

Join Guy, Karen, Margaret, and producer/film festival programmer/Who Shot Ya contributor and now Pop Rocket guest Drea Clark as they pick apart Drew Goddard’s neo-noir ensemble Bad Times at The El Royale. They get into the movie's twists, turns, non-linear construction, Cynthia Erivo's breakout performance, and how it's kind of like Quentin Tarantino's Pulp Fiction, but not nearly as macho.

All Abouts

Drea is all about a long read article from The Texas Monthly called The Love Story that Upended the Texas Prison System about the alliance and romantic relationship between a lawyer and an inmate that ultimately brought attention to a nationwide scandal and disrupted the system of abuse of prisoners in Texas.

Margaret is all about the second season of the Slate podcast Slow Burn, which covers the impeachment of former president Bill Clinton.

Karen is all about The LA Dodgers pulling ahead of the Milwaukee Brewers (as of last Wednesday) in the National League Championship Series.

Guy is all about Glenn Close's performance in her new movie The Wife.

That's My Jam

Karen - Trashcan Sinatras - All Night

Margaret - Alvvays - In Undertow.

Drea - Tierra Whack - MUMBO JUMBO

With Guy Branum, Karen Tongson, Drea Clark, and Margaret Wappler.

Turn on the air conditioning because it's getting hot in here! The gang is joined, once again, by "kid sister" Drea Clark to talk about 50 Shades Freed. They talk the good, the bad, and the boring of the film. Drea dreams of getting a quote on the 50 Shades Freed DVD cover, April cites some issues that a gynecologist would have with the film, and Alonso points out the enjoyment of watching it as "luxury porn." PLUS the crew has an in depth conversation about the use of sex in cinema. Ricky has some great suggestions because he sure did his homework. Light some candles and turn the lights down low, because you're gonna wanna to set the mood to listen to this episode.
