Let's talk a little bit of Wilmington film history, history that took place in an unlikely location in the northern wilds of New Hanover County. The massive, shut-down Ideal Cement plant near Castle Hayne has been the site of a dozen or more major film productions over the decades, some of them with very famous names: “The Crow,” “Super Mario Bros.” and “Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles," just to name three.

Truth is, they can be very fun to write, too, at least for a critic who finds cathartic pleasure in chronicling their own torturous experience with a bad movie, book, meal, etc. But there is an art to penning a pan—and maybe a code of conduct the critic should follow, lest scathing analysis shade into mean-spirited invective. On this week's very inside-baseball episode of Film Club, critics A.A. Dowd and Katie Rife take the listener behind the curtain of their critical process and discuss how to write about bad movies right.Visit: https://www.avclub.com/Like: https://www.facebook.com/theavclubFollow: https://twitter.com/theavclubSee Privacy Policy at https://art19.com/privacy and California Privacy Notice at https://art19.com/privacy#do-not-sell-my-info.

Tara and EmKay dive into the wonderfully wacky world of 1972's "Journey Back to Oz" and are ready to give Liza Minnelli's Dorothy and Ethel Merman's Mombi all the LOVE! Rabbit holes include the history of Filmation, the company that created the move, the long backstory of how the movie finally came to be, and your gingham gals' personal favorite (and not so favorite) moments! *Please note, in this episode we explore the history of 1972's "Journey Back to Oz," which in its later television syndication in 1976 unfortunately featured segments with Bill Cosby as the wizard.  This led to a conversation about Bill Cosby's recently overturned sexual assault conviction and it's damaging repercussions, diving deeper into the topic of sexual abuse and the recent documentary Allen v. Farrow.  We acknowledge the sensitivity and gravity of this subject and want to see our listeners who are survivors.  We will give another disclaimer before this part of the conversation for anyone who wants to opt out and skip ahead to 1:06:00.  Thank you.Show Notes:Allen v.

Late summer is not, normally speaking, a time to expect exceptional cinema; by the onset of August, blockbuster season is winding down and awards season hasn't yet begun, leaving audiences stranded in a purgatorial middle zone, heavy on Hollywood's less promising releases. But against all odds, in these abnormal times, the dog days of summer are bringing some big movies to the big screen that are very much worth seeing. On this week's episode of Film Club, critics A.A. Dowd and Katie Rife talk about a trio of new releases giving the summer movie calendar a good name: M. Night Shyamalan's nightmarish aging thriller Old, which came out last week; David Lowery's hypnotic Arthurian fantasy epic The Green Knight, which opens today; and James Gunn's gory, funny new addition to the DC superhero universe, The Suicide Squad, which will hit theaters and HBO Max next Friday.Visit: https://www.avclub.com/Like: https://www.facebook.com/theavclubFollow: https://twitter.com/theavclubSee Privacy Policy at https://art19.com/privacy and California Privacy Notice at https://art19.com/privacy#do-not-sell-my-info.
