The Postmodern Prometheus – Episode 17 – Kenneth Branagh's "Mary Shelley's Frankenstein" Part 3

How the heck do you talk about one mediocre film for three episodes straight, you ask? Take one Asher who loves the film and one Nancy who hates it and suddenly it becomes very easy! In the conclusion to our thrilling trilogy, we discuss character changes made to Elizabeth, the Creature and Walton, the film's thematic missed opportunities, and a questionable comparison to Hamlet.

The Postmodern Prometheus – Episode 15 – Kenneth Branagh's "Mary Shelley's Frankenstein" Part 1

In 1994 Kenneth Branagh made a Frankenstein movie... here's part one of a trilogy of us discussing it... *Apologies for the jingling sound throughout the first few minutes. 'Twas Milton the cat* Instagram: the_postmodern_prometheus

The Postmodern Prometheus - Episode 14 - Blade Runner

Now that our journey through the book is done, we're diving headfirst into more movie adaptations! Kicking off with a less overt interpretation of MS's classic, we examine Ridley Scott's 1982 Blade Runner! – in an ep that is 1/3 Blade Runner critique, 1/3 Asher going on and on about the book Blade Runner was actually based on, and 1/3 what we actually set out to do...

The Postmodern Prometheus - Episode 13 - The Bitter End

We're back giant-monster-baby! A warm welcome back to Nancy! – who has successfully returned from her voyage abroad without any tag-along vengeance-fuelled creatures (that Asher is aware of at the time of writing...) This week we discuss the last few chapters of the novel and give our final (for now) thoughts on the text as a whole. If you love "academic" fan theories and ramble-y tangents of the evocative and bizarre varieties, then hopefully this episode will not disappoint!

The Postmodern Prometheus - Episode 12 - All My Friends Are Dead, Part 2

This week, Asher and Nancy continue the tale of vengeance and despair with an examination of the worst wedding night ever! Topics include: how Victor is the worst; the pitfalls of assuming your son's vow to 'be with you on your wedding night' (right after you've just unmade his sister-wife) is about killing you; and a healthy dose of psycho-sexual analyses!

The Postmodern Prometheus - Episode 11 - All My Friends Are Dead, Part 1

Yes!—in spite of our repeated assertions that this is episode 10—it is in fact one heck of an episode 11! This week we share our Henry Clerval fan theories as we follow Victor on his journey home to Geneva... (...Featuring rants about classism and privilege, sexuality and incest, and 'ideal woman' tropes.)

The Postmodern Prometheus - Episode 10 - Frankenstein (1931)

This week, Asher and Nancy jump the gun on their own timeline (once again) and hop on over to the realm of film adaptation analyses! Will James Whale's 1931 classic monster flick fare well beneath their cynical gazes? Will they cope with minor superfluous changes, such as Victor Frankenstein being rennamed Henry Frankenstein, and Henry Clerval becoming Victor Moritz?? ... Probably not. Enjoy!
