12/3/2017
More
Robert, Nat, and Cody take a journey back to the early days of the talkies, and prior to the Hayes Code, with 1933's THE INVISIBLE MAN. It's safe to say that there's not much disagreement with the conventional wisdom on this film, but we talk about it at length. Plus a Cinecast tradition of mispronounced names lives on! You have to listen to find out who is continuing that tradition. If that’s not enough, we spend the second half of the episode with Zach Snyder’s and Joss Whedon’s JUSTICE...

More
And we're back! Well, this took us a little longer to post this episode, only because James is now an international man of mystery. James went on a trip to Canada and so we had to plan around that monumental excursion. If you want to know what James was up to in Canada, you are in luck. You've got an hour of notes to open the show delivered in the kind of meticulous detail we all expect of Mr. Gilham. Trapped! It's been a while since we've had an episode where we have had two films that...

And we're back! What, did we just record two shows in one week? Did we just become best friends? That's right dear listeners, it is the shockingly early return of High and Low Brow. Since we needed to re-record our last episode, we decided to get the jump on this episode and record both episodes back-to-back-to-back-to ... I think I lost track there. This fun little episode is brought to you by James' guilt, as he somehow has never seen the film Killer Klowns from Outer Space. So, in a...
