Episode 85 - Bride of Frankenheimer

For this episode of the podcast we wanted to rewatch some films we had seen before but had NOT like, and see if our opinions changed on them this time.  It was an interesting experiment.  We  start with 2003's The League of Extraordinary Gentlemen. which has a truly impressive cast and is based on a graphic novel series of the same name from the legendary Alan Moore. We follow that up with 2006's Ultraviolet, from director Kurt Wimmer ( who made one of our favorite films, Equilibrium ) and stars the bellybutton of Milla Jovovich. In many ways, it was like we had never seen either of these films before, in both good and bad terms.  Let us know if you've had experiences with movies where you rewatched them and found yourself with new opinions on their qualities. Please also let us know what you think of the show and if you have any suggestions for the future. You can reach us at, or leave us a message on our Facebook page.

Episode 84 - Freaky 2015

A Flickers podcast that doesn't look at films from the 70s or 80s!?!?! What has the world come to!?!?
We wanted to update things a bit this time, so we are looking at two from 2015, starting with The Invitation, which is very much like if Werner Herzog directed a claustrophobic remake of the Big Chill. Filled with great performances and a great ( and surprising ) story, this was a real treat. We follow that up with The Witch, and we both felt that it did, in fact, live up to all the hype that surrounded its release.  It tells what feels like a very authentic tale of an family that is disintegrating while something possibly supernatural taunts them from nearby shadows. We follow these two up with a discussion of other recent horror greats, but eventually the nurses come to give us our medicine and put us to bed before we get too excited.  Let us know what you've seen from the last couple of years that impressed you by writing to or or leave us a message on our Facebook page.
