Blow Out

4/18/2018
More
Chris is joined by OughtFiveFilm's Mike Wallace to talk one of Brian De Palma's lesser-known films that may actually be in contention for his best, Blow Out. It features a rare performance from John Travolta that doesn't suck, go figure.

Ready Player One

4/5/2018

Carrie (1976)

4/2/2018
More

Ecstasy of the Angels

3/29/2018
More
Chris is joined by The Projection Booth's Mike White to round out Mike White March with a look at Kôji Wakamatsu's Ecstasy of the Angels. The film follows two warring factions as they attempt to cause a revolution in Japan during the early '70s. The film veers farther into experimental cinema than any film this month and definitely isn't a film for everyone. As always, you can follow Chris Stachiw at @KultureStach, Eric Kniss at @tychomagnetics and Kulture Shocked at @KultureShocked. The...

Tomb Raider (2018)

3/26/2018
More
Chris and Eric head to a mysterious island full of tombs and raiders with a look at yet another attempt to make a video game movie worth watching, Tomb Raider. The film stars Alicia Vikander as the titular hero who is tasked with stopping a mysterious sinister organization from finding a centuries-old weapon hidden away in the Pacific. It's a middle of the road video game movie which, for video game movies, isn't necessarily a bad thing. As always, you can follow Chris Stachiw at...

Eros + Massacre

3/20/2018
More
Chris is joined by The Projection Booth's Mike White to continue Mike White March with a look at quite possibly the finest example of Japanese New Wave cinema, Yoshishige Yoshida's Eros + Massacre. The film focuses on two separate storylines: the final days of anarchist Sakae Ōsugi before his assassination and the lives of two students Eiko and Wada as they research the teachings and philosophy of Ōsugi. It's a three and a half hour epic that traverses separate timelines and multiple...

The Strangers: Prey at Night

3/19/2018
More
Chris and Eric tackle one of their most anticipated films of 2018 and a sequel to one of the greatest horror films ever made The Strangers: Prey at Night. The film follows a family taking their troubled daughter to boarding school when they are attacked, hunted, and systematically picked off by the murderous trio from the first film. It's a stylish follow up to the bleak original and fails to live up to the hype of a decade. As always, you can follow Chris Stachiw at @KultureStach, Eric...

Funeral Parade of Roses

3/12/2018
More
Chris is joined by The Projection Booth's Mike White to continue Mike White March with a look at Toshio Matsumoto's Funeral Parade of Roses. The film follows Eddie, a Japanese transvestite, who unknowingly becomes a participant in his own Oedipus Rex adaptation. It's another fantastic entry into the Japanese New Wave movement and a film that transcends explanation and genre. As always, you can follow Chris Stachiw at @KultureStach, Eric Kniss at @tychomagnetics and Kulture Shocked at...

Red Sparrow

3/9/2018
More
Chris and Eric break-down the first new release of March with Red Sparrow. The film stars Jennifer Lawrence as a Russian espionage agent tasked with finding a double agent within the Russian government. It's a film that focuses more on over-the-top sexual violence and stale dialogue than telling an interesting and compelling story all while casually attempting to be 2018's answer to Atomic Blonde. They also wrap-up the 90th Academy Awards where The Shape of Water took home the headlining...

Death by Hanging

3/8/2018
More
Chris is joined by The Projection Booth's Mike White to kick off Mike White March with a look at the first Japanese New Wave film, Nagisa Ôshima's Death by Hanging. The film follows R, an ethnic Korean living in Japan, who survives being executed by hanging only to have his entire life and being examined by the Japanese justice system. It's a black comedy that turns the mirror on not only Japanese culture but also the criminal justice system and racism. As always, you can follow Chris...

Annihilation

3/2/2018
More
Chris and Eric talk about the first truly great film of 2018 and next fantastic entry from the director Ex-Machina Alex Garland, Annihilation. The film stars Natalie Portman as Lena, a cellular biologist, who goes on a journey into the Shimmer, a mysterious area caused by a meteor, that may hold the secret to saving her husband. It's high science fiction with a heavy helping of philosophy and just the right amount of weird fiction thrown in for good measure. As always, you can follow Chris...

The Truth About Cats & Dogs

2/28/2018
More
Chris and Eric are joined by oughtfivefilm's Mike Wallace to talk the final romantic comedy of rom-com month, The Truth About Cats & Dogs. The film stars Janeane Garofalo and Uma Thurman as two women who get dragged into a comedy of errors surrounding a guy, a mistaken identity, and a dog on roller skates. It's a retelling of Cyrano De Bergerac but with more Blues Traveler and a heaping helping of cliched '90s tropes that haven't aged very well. As always, you can follow Chris Stachiw at...

Black Panther

2/23/2018
More
Chris and Eric talk Marvel's 18th film and the world's introduction to the nation of Wakanda, Black Panther. The film stars Chadwick Boseman as the eponymous superhero and is directed by Creed‘s Ryan Coogler. It's the highest rated film on Rotten Tomatoes and has become a cultural zeitgeist unto itself. As always, you can follow Chris Stachiw at @KultureStach, Eric Kniss at @tychomagnetics and Kulture Shocked at @KultureShocked. The music is Wovoka’s “Lament,” and Da DeCypher’s “Two Step...

Breakfast at Tiffany's

2/12/2018
More
Chris and Eric kick off Rom-Com Month with a look at one of the classics Breakfast at Tiffany's. The film stars Audrey Hepburn as Holly Golightly, a New Yorker with her sights set on the big time who meets the man of her dreams in her apartment building. It's a film that hasn't aged well and is full of anachronisms including an astoundingly racist Mickey Rooney. As always, you can follow Chris Stachiw at @KultureStach, Eric Kniss at @tychomagnetics and Kulture Shocked at @KultureShocked....

Twin Peaks: Fire Walk With Me

2/5/2018
More
Chris and Eric are joined by OughtFiveFilm’s Mike Wallace and Rainbow Comic's Zach Pogany to talk the final film of David Lynch month Twin Peaks: Fire Walk With Me. The film follows up the first two seasons of the show while filling in the backstory of who Laura Palmer was leading up to the day of her death and the mysterious murder of Teresa Banks. It's a divisive follow-up to the show and a worthy setup for what would come with the 2017 return of Twin Peaks. As always, you can follow...

Blue Velvet

1/18/2018
More
Chris is sans Eric but joined by Rainbow Comics' Zach Pogany and InkFilmsInc's Oscar Moreno to talk David Lynch's most mainstream film Blue Velvet. The film stars Kyle MacLachlan as Jeffrey Beaumont, a college student who returns home only to find a disembodied human ear behind in the woods behind his house. This discovery leads him to discover the disturbing underbelly of his sleepy little town including one of cinema's most horrifying villains Frank Booth portrayed by Dennis Hopper. It's...

Eraserhead

1/15/2018
More
Chris and Eric are joined by Rainbow Comics' Zach Pogany to kick off 2018 and David Lynch month with a look at the auteur's first film Eraserhead. The film stars Jack Nance as Henry Spencer, a simple man whose life is turned upside down by the arrival of a very bizarre newborn. The film catapulted Lynch into the public eye and established him as the progenitor of American film surrealism. As always, you can follow Chris Stachiw at @KultureStach, Eric Kniss at @tychomagnetics and Kulture...

Star Wars: The Last Jedi

12/21/2017
More
Chris and Eric are joined by director Matt Campagna and Rainbow Comic's Zach Pogany to talk the most surprisingly controversial film of the year: Star Wars: The Last Jedi. The film picks up immediately where The Force Awakens left off and follows the return of Luke Skywalker, the surviving resistance forces escaping the Starkiller Base, and the continued rise of Kylo Ren. It's a film that shirks the conventions of the franchise in a way that has left some fans disappointed while other fans...

Black Christmas (1974)

12/18/2017
More
Chris and Eric are joined by OughtFiveFilm's Mike Wallace to talk one of Mike's favorite holiday horror films Black Christmas (1974). The film stars Margot Kidder and Olivia Hussey as two sorority sisters whose annual Christmas party is interrupted by a sadistic serial killer dead set on killing all of them. It's the proto-slasher that influenced every slasher afterward coming out four years before Halloween. As always, you can follow Chris Stachiw at @KultureStach, Eric Kniss at...
