Paid in Puke S6E8: Annihilation

On today’s episode, we get existential AF with Alex Garland’s 2018 surreal sci-fi film, “Annihilation”, starring Natalie Portman, Jennifer Jason Leigh, Gina Rodriguez, Tessa Thompson, and Tuva Novotny. 

This is a heady one, but it’s a lot of fun if you can stomach some pretty intense body horror and a trippy synth score. It’s basically John Carpenter’s The Thing on acid but with WOMEN.

Really Weird Stuff E5: Twin Peaks – The One-Armed Man

On RWS Episode 5, we’re discussing Twin Peaks S1E4, “The One-Armed Man”, written by Robert Engels and directed by Tim Hunter. This is a very plot-heavy episode but it’s still a lot of fun. Special guest Ryan Weadon (Ex-Rated Movies Podcast) joins us to explore mysteries such as:

WHY won’t Lucy just tell Andy what’s on her mind?
WHAT is the real purpose of Ben’s Little Elvis?
HOW much time did Hank spend on his domino sketch?

Paid in Puke S6E7: Fatal Attraction

On today’s episode, we’re talking about a film that won’t be ignored: Adrienne Lynne’s 1987 problematic as-HELL thriller, “Fatal Attraction”. This film was a box office smash that starred Glenn Close, Anne Archer, and we guess a little bit Michael Douglas. It tells the story of woman named Alex, a 34-year-old NYC book editor who becomes impregnated after sleeping with a married man she meets through work. When she expresses an interest in having a relationship with him, he becomes violent and irrational, eventually coercing his wife into murdering her. 

What a piece of work is man!

Special guest Chris Brugos joins us to explore mysteries such as:

HOW can two perfectly terrific women be in love with Ed?
WHY doesn’t Donna wear that derby hat more often?
WHAT is up with that dumb Bookhouse Boys signal?
WHERE are Gersten and Harriet Hayward?

PLUS: James, WHO?
