We are Bubbawheat from Flights, Tights, and Movie Nights and Lackey from The Nightmare Gallery and Forced Viewing! And we are here to talk about The Thing and Scott Pilgrim vs. the World! ONETWOTHREEFOUR!
I appear in the latest episode of the Palme d’Or-winning LAMBcast, episode #217, “Whatcha Been Watchin’ Lately?” I discuss Wild at Heart, Blue Ruin, August: Osage County and Under the Skin with Dylan Fields (of Man, I Love Films), Nick Rehak (of French Toast Sunday) and Lindsay Street (also of French Toast Sunday). Then I actually win a round of Last LAMB Standing! How ’bout that.
Listen to this podcast and you, too, will probably win a Palme d’Or.
Host Jay Cluitt (of Live vs. Film), JD Duran (of InSession Film), Jess Manzo (of French Toast Sunday) and Will Slater (of Exploding Helicopter) and I talk about our personal lives for an hour and a half. You will learn all sorts of interesting things about me, including the basis of the novel I tried to write when I was 9.
The name of the episode is “Ask the LAMB #4,” and involves myself, Jason of Your Face, Jay of Life vs. Film, Lindsay of French Toast Sunday, and the Vern of Vern’s Video Vortex giving smart-aleck answers to film questions posted on Yahoo! Answers. Since everyone else has used that one picture of Wyldstyle in The Lego Movie to promote their appearances in the episode, I figure I should as well.
“Everything is awesome,” I say, sheepishly; I hope nobody realizes I haven’t actually seen The Lego Movie.
We will address the burning issues of the age, including:
- Is it weird to have a crush on a fictional character?
- How much math knowledge do you need to get into the motion picture business?
- What is the secret subtext of the Bring it On films?
- Is Lego trying to sexualize their female minifigs?
- What’s all this about a movie called Citizen Kane 2: Grown-Ups?
Jason later had this to say about the episode:
If he were actually speaking out loud, he probably wouldn’t have pronounced the hashtag.
