Meta Slashers: A Retrospective
on Thursday, October 18, 2012
Phil talks great movies that require prior knowledge of the ridiculous tropes that make up the teen slasher genre, including Scream
(and its sequels), New Nightmare
, Cabin in the Woods
, and many more!
Tom Hiddleston stars in the long-delayed adaptation of J.G. Ballard’s darkly comical class warfare allegory in which a tower block’s problems with power failures, nocturnal disturbances, and petty neighbor disputes escalate into all-out tribal warfare.The internet is ruining movies
“The internet has made watching movies easier, and made distribution easier, but the internet has also played a large role in the decline in quality of mainstream American movies, especially among blockbusters.”Wrath of the Titans (2012)
“Will make anyone who loves to watch demi-gods jumping onto the backs of large computer-generated beasts giddy.”Batman & Mr. Freeze: SubZero (1998)
“This movie got a pretty good reception, but I think that’s just the result of looking good in comparison to Batman & Robin, in the same way that a mediocre baseball team looks good compared to the 1899 Cleveland Spiders.”Batman (1966) shows how feminism will kill us all
“Nora Clavicle and the Ladies’ Crime Club” (S3 E19) It’s the 50th anniversary of the premiere of Batman starring Adam West and Burt Ward, and what better way to celebrate than by recapping an episode where it really shows its age?Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice (2016) is a long, dull trainwreck
“It’s amazing that a 150-minute film has such a flat and underdeveloped story. It really feels like a rush job, or that it’s a film based on cheap fan-service, or made by a committee.”
