GOT ME A MOVIE Episode 10: Art School Punishment in Suburbia

Hello friends, and welcome to the Spring Semester of Got Me A Movie! Andrew and Elbee are hittin’ the books as they discuss two school-related films: 2006’s Art School Confidential and 2000’s Crime + Punishment In Suburbia. First up is Art School Confidential, adapted from the work of underground comic artist Daniel Clowes. In this section of the show, the hosts talk about their experiences with Clowes’ art and comic books in general; Elbee brings up how she can’t really read comics very well, and Andrew speaks about his influences as an illustrator himself. Later, Elbee shares a brief history of cult beverage OK Soda (why? You’ll have to listen to find out!), and the two reminisce about “that ‘90s feeling.” The second half of the show features Crime + Punishment In Suburbia, a film loosely based on Fyodor Dostoevsky’s famous novel of nearly the same name. Elbee points out how the character and situational analogues don’t really work, but Andrew contends that they do inde...

GOT ME A MOVIE Episode 09: Love and Chaos in L.A.

Greetings and salutations, friends and lovers! On this episode of Got Me A Movie, we’ve got a fine double feature of off-beat romance, just in time for Valentine’s Day. First on deck is 1985’s Into The Night, starring Jeff Goldblum and Michelle Pfeiffer, and directed by John Landis. It’s a strange movie that has trouble really knowing what it is or what it’s supposed to be, but it’s packed with enough quirk to remain relevant (even if it is among the least talked-about of Landis’ films). In the episode, we get into whether or not we’re supposed to believe this film takes place in our reality, or a world that’s just like it — but, you know, slightly off. The film also evokes some “‘80s in L.A.” nostalgia, which Andrew gets to pontificate about, so keep an ear out for some Cal Worthington love. Next up is 1988’s Miracle Mile, starring Anthony Edwards and Mare Winningham, and directed by Steve De Jarnatt. Of the two films discussed here, this one is the more obvious love ...

GOT ME A MOVIE Episode 08: UNTIL THE END OF THE WORLD

Hello again, friends! On this episode of GMAM we dive deep into one of Andrew’s favorite films, Wim Wenders’ 1991 saga, Until The End Of The World. If you’re familiar with Wenders’ work, you’ll know he seems to specialize in making the quintessential “road movie,” putting our quest to find happiness and emotional fulfillment on full display. This is most apparent in Paris, Texas, where we are dropped into the story of Travis Henderson (Harry Dean Stanton) as he journeys through the desert to reconnect with his family. But with Until The End Of The World, Wenders and story co-conspirator Solveig Dommartin (who stars in the film) set out to produce the most epic road movie imaginable: the film’s on-location shooting spun fifteen different cities in seven different countries on four different continents. And originally, the vision was to end the film in Africa instead of Australia, which would have of course brought up the location count even more. But as it was already, the fi...

GOT ME A MOVIE Episode 07: Horror Lite

We here at GMAM love spooky movies just as much as anyone, and given it’s October, we couldn’t resist doing a seasonally appropriate episode. But, as Cinepunx already has an authoritative podcast on all things horror-related (hey, Horror Business!), we decided to go a somewhat uncharted route and do a double feature on a couple of our favorite old-fashioned creepy thrillers. These two picks are atmospheric and ripe with psychological tension, but by some people’s standards may not exactly be called horror movies. Effectively, I’m calling them Horror Lite™ (same great taste, less filling). First, we explore director Charles Laughton’s 1955 epic Night of the Hunter. Many critics and fans alike have claimed this is their favorite horror movie, or that it’s the scariest movie they’ve ever seen. The film’s visuals are stark and dramatic, and along with heart(and gut)-wrenching performances from stars Robert Mitchum and Lillian Gish, it’s not a film that’s easily forgettable. N...

GOT ME A MOVIE Episode 07: Horror Lite

GOT ME A MOVIE Episode 06: The Play’s The Thing

On this episode of Got Me A Movie, we go back to 1990 for acclaimed playwright Tom Stoppard’s only directorial work: a film adaptation of his play, Rosencrantz and Guildenstern Are Dead. The film stars Tim Roth and Gary Oldman in the titular roles, two minor characters from William Shakespeare’s Hamlet. Richard Dreyfuss is the support, portraying The Player, leader of the group of traveling tragedians who perform for the King and Queen of Denmark. Much of the story takes place “in the wings” of Hamlet, a clever referential device where we see the events of Hamlet, but through the eyes of these two characters. There’s a lot of play-within-a-play-within-a-play-within-a play going on, which is utilized perfectly. Like, dude, this thing is so meta. The play version of Rosencrantz and Guildenstern Are Dead was written and first performed in the mid-sixties, a true example of Theatre of the Absurd. It’s similar in theme to Samuel Beckett’s existentialist drama “Waiting for Godot,...

GOT ME A MOVIE Episode 05: TUFF CHIX

Hello again, friends! On this episode of Got Me A Movie, we’re talking about a couple of our favorite tuff chicks: Tank Girl and Billie Jean Davy. 1995’s Tank Girl was meant to be a revelation. Based on Alan Martin and Jamie Hewlett’s work for Deadline magazine (and beyond), this film was supposed to encapsulate all the snark, rebellion, and cheekiness that made the title character who she was, and that readers of the comic rallied around. It was supposed to be a larger-than-life, punk rock force to be reckoned with, and in some ways was successful in that. But as with any major studio endeavor, the filmmakers (director Rachel Talalay, along with Martin & Hewlett) were struck by limitations that no doubt watered down the spirit of the character and her world. So, we have a film that means well, that does the best with what it’s got, but lacks a sense of soul that won’t allow it to fully get there. It’s unfortunate that so much got lost in the translation from comic to film, be...

GOT ME A MOVIE Episode 04: Back to the Psycho Beach Party

Hey all you hotdoggers and beach bunnies! On this super boss summer edition of Got Me A Movie, we’re talking about a couple of the coolest, corniest, and all-around funnest beach movies there are: 1987’s Back to the Beach and 2000’s Psycho Beach Party. Admittedly, this episode is a bit nostalgia-based. Personally, I love all those American International beach party movies from the late 60s – as silly as they are, they’re mostly a good time. Their nonsensical look at American youth culture at the time is oddly comforting; it’s like a big picnic basket full of hotdogs and Sentimentality Soda. But what’s interesting about the beach party flicks is that most of them have a theme that is unequivocally American: how do we justify working a soul-sucking job only to make money, when we could throw that all out the window and thrive in the soul-freeing life of a surfer? Hear what we have to say about that in the episode! We also touch on the differences between camp and kitsch, as the...

GOT ME A MOVIE Episode 04: Back to the Psycho Beach Party

GOT ME A MOVIE Episode 03: Always Intense

Hello again, friends and fiends! On this episode of GOT ME A MOVIE, we’ll be talking about Alex Cox’s stylish feature debut, Repo Man…and Alex Cox’s flub of a sequel (remake?), Repo Chick. Repo Man is often championed as a symbol of freedom, a quintessential representation of the spirit of Los Angeles punk rock in the early ‘80s. It’s a film that’s often hard to describe: is it a comedy? It has humor, but it’s strangely more serious than that. Is it science fiction? I mean, there are aliens…right? Is it a car movie? Not quite. But what’s definite about Repo Man is that it possesses a heart and some kind of soul, which comes through in its rough-and-tumble main characters. Repo Chick, on the other hand, is a bit…different. Although the film shows genuine effort, it pales in comparison to Cox’s 1984 predecessor. The same anti-establishment punk values are there, and Cox plays around with the same sociopolitical themes, but there’s just something that doesn’t quite hit th...

GOT ME A MOVIE Episode 02: What Are You Two Talking About?

Hello again, friends! On this episode of Got Me A Movie, we’ll be talking about the 1996 cult favorite, Trainspotting, and its recently released sequel, T2: Trainspotting. The first film is one that both of us think of quite often, and quite fondly. There are always a few films that you are exposed to in your youth that resonate with you in such a profound way, and for the both of us, Trainspotting is a prime example of one that helped shape our perceptions of what is cool and interesting. In the episode you’ll hear how we both discovered the film, and what it really meant to us when we first saw it. Aside from the obvious examination of what it’s like to be an addict, Trainspotting is a layered masterpiece of a film, revealing underlying themes of friendship, identity crisis, class struggle – and that’s just to name a few! Every viewing of the film unveils some new motive or purpose, and that’s precisely why we love it so much. We waited what seemed like forever for T2: Train...

GOT ME A MOVIE Episode 01: We’re DETERMINED to have a great show!

Hello friends, and welcome to the very first episode of Got Me A Movie! Our names are Elbee and Andrew, and although we’re not new to podcasting, we are new to Cinepunx, and we’re awfully excited to be joining this very cool network. You may know us from our horror podcast, Vincent Price’s Laugh, and even though we love scary movies, we felt the need to expand. This show will cover a variety of films we think are worth experiencing. And for our first episode, we are discussing a film you probably already know, and one you possibly forgot: Arrival and Knowing. I am admittedly not too keen on science fiction movies, but they are something that have always been welcomed in Andrew’s life. So, when films such as these come around that are thoughtful as well as exciting, they manage to tickle both our fancies at the same time. We like these films because not only do they satisfy the need for a big, exhilarating sci-fi epic – not only do they have cool aliens – but they also offer st...
