The Princess Bride movie review has the Salty Nerds declaring Wuv, Twoo Wuv for this classic movie. A story about adventure, intrigue, and romance, The Princess Bride is probably one of the most quotable movies ever made. Based on William Goldman's novel and directed by Rob Reiner, the movie is about a poor farm boy who becomes a legendary pirate in order to win the hand of his true love, who also happens to be betrothed to an evil Prince who wants to kill her in order to start a war. Now, the farm boy must team up with a Spanish duelist and a giant in order to save her - all while skipping the "kissing stuff." Starring Cary Elwes, Mandy Patinkin, Robin Wright, Christopher Guest, Fred Savage, Peter Falk, and Andre the Giant, this fantastical story is considered to be one of the greatest movies ever made (at least according to the Salty Nerds). If you love this fantasy movie as much as the Nerds do, you're not going to want to miss this review. Did you love the Princess Bride? Do you find it inconceivable that anyone could hate it?

The Classic Film: Alison's Birthday (1981) "A young girl is subjected to a reign of terror so that her soul can be transferred to the body of an old crone” (IMDb.com). Alison's Birthday is an Australian mash-up of concepts from other, better movies, but don't miss the charming forest for the trees. The Modern Film: Book of Monsters (2018) "Sophie's 18th birthday becomes a bloodbath when monsters descend upon her house and start to devour the party guests” (Epic Pictures). Book of Monsters is a Kickstarter flick full of nods to horror cliché, but—unlike Alison's Birthday—with none of the charm.

The Princess Bride is a 1987 American fantasy adventure comedy film directed and co-produced by Rob Reiner and starring Cary Elwes, Robin Wright, Mandy Patinkin, Chris Sarandon, Wallace Shawn, André the Giant, and Christopher Guest. Adapted by William Goldman from his 1973 novel of the same name, it tells the story of a farmhand named Westley, accompanied by companions befriended along the way, who must rescue his true love Princess Buttercup from the odious Prince Humperdinck. The film preserves the novel's metafictional narrative style by presenting the story as a book being read by a grandfather (Peter Falk) to his sick grandson (Fred Savage).

We apologize if this episode isn't quite your tempo... but it should be! Because we have two awesome movies to talk about today on Movies for Life, all about musicians and somewhat "explosive" drummers. First we worry about whether we're rushing or dragging in talking about the anxiety-inducing stress-fest that is 2014's WHIPLASH! We discuss the brilliant and enigmatic performance of JK Simmons; the pressure and struggle of wanting to be great and still have a happy life; and just the overall exceptional way this story is told. Then we switch gears almost completely and spend the next hour laughing our way through Rob Reiner's classic rock mockumentary, THIS IS SPINAL TAP from 1984! You know the lines and the jokes, and yes, pretty much all of them are repeated here in this episode, but that's the true joy of a movie like this. Brian talks about the reality of many of the situations portrayed in the movie, and we give high praise to the standout performances of Christopher Guest and Michael McKean (even though everyone kills it in this movie!).

Baz Luhrmann's oeuvre. Sarah Watt, Jeremy Downing and William Chen discuss the most recent Luhrmann film Elvis (2022) and his first film Strictly Ballroom (1992). We begin by discussing Baz's visual style, especially his use of computer generated images. We move into a discussion of Elvis and how successful we each feel the film was. We move into a conversation of Strictly Ballroom, with William watching it for the first time, Sarah for the second time and Jeremy for the... countless next time. We refer to Romeo + Juliet (1996), Moulin Rouge! (2001), Australia (2008), The Great Gatsby (2013) and The Get Down (2016). We also connect Strictly Ballroom to Christopher Guest films, like Waiting For Guffman (1996), and Australian classics Muriel's Wedding (1994), The Adventures of Priscilla, Queen of the Desert (1994). We discuss the nostalgia that both Elvis and Strictly Ballroom evokes. We connect to Sam Neill's concept of the Cinema of the Unease and consider how such a reading of New Zealand film might connect to Australian cinema of the same time. We further connect the film to Cosi (1996), Quills (2000) and Lantana (2001).

In today's episode, Willy welcomes Jamie Lee Curtis. She is an actress, producer, director, inventor, and author. With an illustrious career spanning four decades, she has appeared in widely loved films, such as "Halloween," "Trading Places," "True Lies," "Knives Out," and A24's highest-grossing film to date, "Everything Everywhere All At Once." She has starred in numerous sitcoms, such as "Anything But Love," "The Heidi Chronicles," and "Scream Queens." She has written 13 children's books, narrated for Audible's "Letters From Camp," and is the host and producer of "Good Friend," an iHeartMedia podcast. She is an amateur photographer and an advocate for children, animals, and the environment. Happily married for 37 years to Christopher Guest, she now has two adult children. The podcast begins with Jamie sharing her stepfather's influence on her when it comes to business. Bob Brandt was an ex-marine and a self-made businessman who taught Jamie the value of money and the greatest finance lesson of her life: "Save every penny you've ever made." She continues to talk about her mother, Janet Leigh, popularly known as Marion Crane from the cult-classic horror film "Psycho." She remembers her mother as someone who "came from nothing" and was discovered by Tom Cruise but goes out of her way to memorize the names of everyone around her and get to know them deeply – a trait that Jamie has emulated. Jamie's thoughts about social media revolved around it being a poison to the youth and how it should be "about standing for something." She wants to relate to others on both sides as "that's the goal of America." When it comes to comments, she advises, "Don't read the comments. Period. Say what you mean. Mean what you say. Don't say it mean. And get the f*** out." Working with her mother made her strive to honor her parents by doing her best in everything she was set to do. She uncovers a downside to fame as she says, "Fame doesn't disappear…. But what made you famous goes away," expressing her heartbreak over what her parents have experienced in showbiz. Jamie attests to putting one foot out the door so that she can leave anytime if the limelight is not where she belongs anymore. She is grateful for staying relevant even in her sixties. She talks about the difference between earning TV money and movie money. She advises everyone to give their money away while they're still alive and use it to live life to the fullest. "I want to die fully alive… manifest my destiny so I can leave a little bit of goodness in the world before I go. She shares her experience working for Blumhouse for the "Halloween" movies, being "a final girl," and acting with fake blood in most of her films. She retells her fairy-tale-like experience of marrying Christopher Guest and the interesting aspects of filming kiss scenes. She touches on her latest movie, "Everything Everywhere All At Once," and how her friends thought it was "the worst movie they have ever seen." She adds that sitcom work is her favorite job and that James Cameron wrote "True Lies" with her in mind. She describes the director as someone who "can do every single job on a movie except acting, which is why actors love working for him." She developed a close friendship with Arnold Schwarzenegger on set and described the challenges of portraying Helen Tasker. She ends the show with a touching message: "The most important thing is who we are as human beings, with other human beings." Even in today's troubled times, she believes respect and humanity should come first above all else. Tune in to this new episode of the Walker Webcast — Behind the Scenes with Jamie Lee Curtis. ▶️

This episode is sponsored by the all-new Passive Aggressive Pants from Henderson's Pants, makers of coverage for everything you have down under since 1735. CLIPS No Cover - Live from Savage Henry Comedy Club At Savage Henry Comedy Club in Eureka, CA, comedians and luminaries join host Mark Sanders to unwind and laugh about the goings on in Humboldt Country and the world at large. I clip from the first episode from May 13th, 2022 - "Condors in the Air, Scooters on the Street, and a Couple of Kinds of Comics",, and feature the music and comedy stylings of inaugural guest Stephanie Knowles. Gag On This…PodcastBig Nick, Rob, Charron, and Daddy D get together each week to interview local comedians/comediennes about their life in comedy, their views of the local scene, and we have them enter the 'Comics Studio.' We also discuss random topics and crack jokes with our guests and sometimes ask the audience to join in on the fun!" Taken from their Epi181 the dropped May 9th of this year, called "Gutting the Sacred Sinkie", the gang is joined by comedian Kevin Gootee! In this clip, Kevin explains what "Comics Watching Comics" is and notes some of the influence it has had on new comedians. In Bed with Nick and Megan Megan Mullally and Nick Offerman have been a couple for 20 years - 138 years in Hollywood time - and in their podcast they take listeners directly into their bed… because that's where every episode is recorded - their bed. Cozying up with their famous friends, your favorite couple provide a funny, revealing, and very candid look into their relationship and life at large. In some episodes, they'll even kick the guest out of bed and get extra personal in what some have called the most searing and rawly sexual conversations ever to burn their way through a voice recorder. Oh, yes. It's that good. Join Megan and Nick for some serious pillow talk. This clip is from August 30th, 2020, an episode entitled "Checking In with Jamie Lee Curtis and Christopher Guest". There is a terrific story very early on about how Jamie Lee Curtis and Christopher Guest met. I did not clip that for this show. I chose instead to go with a clip of the group having a discussion that begins with sharing experiences in the theatre and the early days of cable T.V. programming. (Note: There has not been an episode of In Bed with Nick and Megan released since the "Season 1 Finale" dropped on September 13th, 2020.) When you get done listening to Episode 312, this is pretty much what I'll be saying: "Hey there… welcome to the end of the episode. I do hope you found some interest and/or entertainment in the roughly half-hour of your life that you spent listening to us. Maybe you will search out these shows to add to your "to-listen-to-queue" for further exploration? Maybe you've already heard one or more of the shows featured on this program and were curious to hear specifically what we chose to share with other people… maybe you would have chosen a different portion? Those are a great many "Maybe"s indeed, but they are only as good as their ability to signify that probabilities are being speculated upon…. At least, that's what it looks like from where I'm sitting. Another difficult thing is finding a graceful way to transition to a plug for my website over at www.tysonsaner.com where you will find links to all my other projects including other soundcasts, music, videogame gaming videos of various sorts on my YouTube channel, over a hundered now actually with a more-or-less steady release of content lately…and maybe a few surprises. Anyway, listen in right here next week for episode 313 brought to you by Marc Hershon and then, most likely, I will be back in 2 weeks with episode 314… so, until then, Be Decent to Each Other, and if someone should ask you if you've heard anything good or interesting lately, and we come to mind, won't you please pass the Succotash? — Tyson Saner

In this inaugural edition of A Special Place In Hell, Sarah and Meghan kick things off with an explanation of how to pronounce (or not bother pronouncing) their names. From there, they ponder their 20-plus year age difference and do not think about the fact that Meghan is technically old enough to be Sarah's . . oh never mind. They then commence with in-depth discussions of three recent pieces of media content. The first is Ryan Grim's treatise in the Intercept about the epidemic of personnel meltdowns at progressive nonprofit organizations. (As a nonprofit leader herself, Sarah found this very interesting, as well as deliciously vindicating.) They move on to What Is A Woman?, the documentary by Daily Wire correspondent Matt Walsh, who pokes fun at jargon-spewing ideologues while asking a fundamental and seemingly simple question no one can answer. The film is a powerful shot over the bow in the battles over gender ideology, but does it trip over its own right wing agenda and undermine itself with sexist stereotypes? Finally, the ladies deliberate over Sunday's very long New York Times Magazine article about debates within the field of medicalized gender transition in young people, a subject they're both already obsessed with.Other highlights: Meghan explains to Sarah the connection between J. Jill clothes and the progressive nonprofit world.Meghan makes a reference to Christopher Guest movies and Sarah doesn't know what she's talking about. Meghan sings one line of Steely Dan. Sarah wonders if breaking out of the gender ideology cult--er, “community” is analogous to leaving the Muslim faith. Sarah reveals her mother's “nickname” for her father.Links: The Elephant In The Zoom by Ryan Grim, The Intercept What Is A Woman? film by Matt Walsh, The Daily WireThe Battle Over Gender Therapy by Emily Bazelon, The New York Times Magazine This is a public episode.

Adapted by William Goldman from his 1973 novel of the same name, it tells the story of a farmhand named Westley, accompanied by companions befriended along the way, who must rescue his true love Princess Buttercup from the odious Prince Humperdinck.

Jim Piddock is an actor, writer, and producer. He made his theatrical debut in the U.S. in “The Boy's Own Story”, a one-man show about a soccer goalkeeper, at the Julian Theatre in San Francisco.  He appeared in his first movie in the top-grossing film of 1989, “Lethal Weapon 2”, in which one of his lines, “But…you're black” in answer to Danny Glover's request to emigrate to South Africa, became a catchphrase for the film. But it is probably his diverse performances in the improvised Christopher Guest comedies “Best In Show” (as the Dog Show commentator with Fred Willard), “A Mighty Wind”, and “For Your Consideration” that he has gained the most attention as a chameleon-like character actor, barely recognizable from role to role.

Have you ever wanted to visit the "stool capital of the world"??? If so, join Heyd and Erin as they discuss this epic saga of Waiting for Guffman with artist Cody Ledvina, who is drawn to this mockumentary format with a satirical edge that created classics such as the Missouri compromise...of whatever Corky's haircut is! This "big fish in a small pond" story allows director/actor Christopher Guest to fabricate the delicious tale of a small town theater director who is tasked with recounting the town's history via a musical production, including alien abductions with quintessential probing. We have reserved a front row ticket for you as we giggle our way through this quest for fame and noterietay in the Americana hellscape we call home. Tangents: city council meetings, Total Recall, Matthew McConaughey, gay face, Rand Paul, work families, artist cemetery For more information about Cody's studio practice, check out his website www.codyledvina.com and Instagram @codyledvina Follow us on Instagram @artists.talk.movies --- Support this podcast: https://anchor.fm/erin-stafford/support

All aboard because Frances Fisher is on the show this week. You Might Know Her From Titanic, Watchmen, Jolene, House of Sand and Fog, Laws of Attraction, The Sinner, The Lincoln Lawyer, and Unforgiven. In celebration of Titanniversary (it's a real holiday for us), we spoke with Frances about her legendary performance as Ruth Dewitt Bukater in the James Cameron blockbuster. We talked about her epic audition, discovering the character from the period dress and her (real) hair, and how she delivered some of the most iconic lines in all of cinema.
