The analysis and evaluation of films
The wildest horror movie of 2021 is here, and it's not the one you were thinking of. This week, we're talking about James Wan's latest film, Malignant, the dark horse contender for having the most jaw-dropping twist of the year. Don't let its sleepy trailer fool you, Malignant is hiding some dark secrets.
Dean Hurley is a sound designer, musician, producer, engineer, and more. He does all things sound, and for the past decade and a half, he's done them with David Lynch, as the operator of Lynch's Asymmetrical Studios. From the streets of LA in Inland Empire to the depths of the Black Lodge in Twin Peaks: The Return, Dean's been responsible for immersing you in the Lynchian world. His work on Twin Peaks: The Return earned him two Emmy nominations. This sound design work on The Return was released as its own album on 2017's Anthology Resource Volume I on Sacred Bones Records. Since then, Dean's also released Anthology Resource Volume II: Philosophy of Beyond, a sonic foray into ideas beyond physical reality.Dean hopped on the call with us here at the Ion Pack, and we talked about working with Lynch, the role of sound in general, and the sublime. We discuss four tracks, reverse engineering, shadow recording, plugging things in, Lynch's recording process, Trent Reznor, interpreting the Twin Peaks script, Walter Hill, Angelo Badalamenti, and MORE. And of course, we try to answer the question, “What do our souls remember?”Music throughout from Twin Peaks: The Return / Dean Hurley's "Anthology Resource Volume I"★ Support this podcast on Patreon ★

We talk the who's-who ensemble of young 90s up and comers (including Jack Black, Jason Lee, and Seth Green), explore the film's libertarian-leaning (and liberal-indicting) perspective on national security, and make the case for Tony as the singular auteur capable of originating the visual language of surveillance cinema popularized in the post-9/11 era.Follow Gus Lanzetta on Twitter.Hit Factory Patrons have exclusive access to every episode of SCOTTEMBER, including an extended version of this episode where we discuss everything from Bolsonaro to Jon Hamm (along with our back catalog of premium episodes and bonus content).

In the era of modern horror films, few directors are as revered as James Wan after he terrified audiences with films such as “Saw” and “Insidious” and eventually creating a massive franchise based around “The Conjuring.” Of course, Wan's talent eventually landed him blockbuster movie credentials after he directed the first “Aquaman” movie but as he was preparing to shoot the sequel, he decided he wanted to return to his horror roots and create an entirely different kind of film. Inspired by the Giallo movies in Italian cinema along with Dario Argento and Brian DePalma, Wan had a desire to pay homage to the films from the late 1980s and early 1990s that were such a huge part of his experience growing up where he would scavenge the very back wall of the horror section and look for the most interesting VHS cover available. What resulted was a movie about a woman haunted by visions of a vicious killer, who is drawing nearer and nearer to her with every dead body that surfaces.In the latest episode of Rewind of the Living Dead, we're going to check for bleeding on the back our heads and look for clues to solve a murder as we review the 2021 horror film “Malignant”…

"America. F*ck yeah!" Matt Stone and Trey Parker take everything they learned from "South Park" and rip everyone apart in "Team America: World Police" and we are here for it. Just the idea of doing a feature length comedy with marionettes is worth the price of admission. We pair it with a cabernet sauvignon called The Federalist because the label is so American that we couldn't pass it up. Metacritic Score: 64/100Movie Sync Notes: We watch the movie on Netflix. We start "Team America" 8:00 into the pod, and push play on part two 1:13:07 into the pod.
Just like most of the world's population I'm hopelessly addicted to my smartphone, whether it be used to avoid talking to my family by playing a pointless grindy mobile game or to earn a small fortune by selling my exclusive Only Fans vegetable videos. But all talk of iPhones and Androids is off the table this week as we look back at the Top 5 Telephones in movies. If you're a fan of the corded landline telephone like we are you'll enjoy reminiscing about those cabled beauties as they graced the celluloid screen, and for the more enthusiastic nomophobes amongst you, you'll delight in Dan revealing the embarrassing technical mistakes some movies have made. With Peter's incredible telephone facts backing all that up, we're really spoiling you this week! Something that spoils were you to leave it for a long time in a particularly hot or cold place, or indeed just for a long time in a fairly mild environment, would be a tangerine. And that segues very nicely into this week's main feature which is Sean Baker's 2015 comedy drama TANGERINE. It's Christmas Eve and recently released from jail transgender sex worker Sin-Dee Rella (Kitana Kiki Rodriguez) discovers her boyfriend and pimp Chester (Ziggy from THE WIRE) has cheated on her, and to make matters worse it was with a "fish". With her best friend Alexandra (Mya Taylor) alongside her she sets out to track down and confront her unfaithful love, whilst Armenian cab driver Razmik (Karren Karagulian) just wants to find a connection among the streetwalkers of Santa Monica boulevard. Ironically given our top 5 this week this movie was short entirely using three iPhone 5's. That's not really irony, more of a coincidence to be honest but the movie is much more than an iPhone gimmick, and its colour saturated palette bathes and reveals a side to Los Angeles and life that is rarely illuminated. There aren't many movies featuring transgender actors that have made an impression on mainstream cinema, this could and should be one. We finish off this week's episode with a look back at M.A.S.K. because why not. The nostalgia is strong with this one, with 3 of us being huge fans of the toys. But did you know the rich and shocking back story behind Miles Mayhem and Matt Tracker's rivalry, involving the death of the latter's brother, Andy? Did you think that T-Bob was just a poor composite of R2-D2 and C-3PO, combining the worst aspects of both of those characters? Has this aged well is the big, big question?

Following the release of the novel “Red Dragon” in 1981 by author Thomas Harris, a film adaptation was put in the works just a few years later with Dino De Laurentiis serving as producer. The search started for a director capable of adapting the material and David Lynch was initially offered the job but he ultimately turned it down. That's when Michael Mann stepped into the role after he had found massive success as a showrunner on the hit series “Miami Vice.” Mann didn't change a lot from the original book, although he definitely added his signature touch when it came to the visuals and the cinematography including the colorful lighting throughout the film. William Peterson eventually landed the lead role as retired FBI profiler Will Graham and a British actor named Brian Cox was cast as the serial killer named Hannibal Lecktor. The title of the film was eventually changed from “Red Dragon” because De Laurentiis had just experienced a flop with the movie “Year of the Dragon” and he didn't want this adaptation to be confused for some sort of martial arts spectacle. When the film was released, critics were not kind with one reviewer calling the movie a “chic, well cast wasteland” but eventually years later, Mann's work gained a cult classic status among cinephiles. In the latest episode of Rewind of the Living Dead, we're going to talk into our tape recorders while listening to “In-A-Gadda-Da-Vida” as we look back on the 1986 film “Manhunter”…

Wow. We're here. Actually you've brought us here because this film won our instagram poll for next up. It's time to take a deep breath and witness some 'urban horror' on screen.

Whether it's for planning an ambush, escaping a crime scene, staging an elaborate fight, or simply used to get from point A to point B via some solid rock, the tunnel has been reliable since it was first conceived over 4000 years ago. In movie terms though it's probably best known as a metaphor for sex, as famously used at the climax of Hitchcock's North by Northwest. This week's Top 5 Movie Tunnels is lower on the sexiness scale than you might usually expect from us but just like an explosives engineer tasked with blowing up mountains to help with building tunnels, it's ground-breaking work. If subprime mortgages, collateralized debt obligations, credit default swaps and spreadsheets are your jam - and let's face it, why wouldn't they be - then Adam McKay's 2015 polemic THE BIG SHORT is worth checking out. Based on the book by MONEYBALL author Michael Lewis, the movie tells the true story of a handful of investors who foresaw the 2007/2008 US financial crisis, identified the underhanded techniques used to compromise the economy including predatory lending and excessive risk-taking and then bet against the US housing market. An angry look at a serious, technical subject which impacted everyone to some degree or another, THE BIG SHORT inventively brings the crisis to life whilst also allowing for some exceptional character work in the hands of great actors such as Christian Bale, Marisa Tomei, Steve Carell, Ryan Gosling, Hamish Linklater, Brad Pitt and Jeremy Strong. If you only see one dramatization of a recent historical financial crisis this year, let it be this one. A SERIES OF UNFORTUNATE EVENTS is not the name of my sex tape but is in fact Netflix's adaptation of American author Daniel Handler's series of books by the unseen Lemony Snicket. Following their parents' death in a mysterious fire, the series chronicles the miserable lives of the Baudelaire children as they are placed in the custody of their awful relative, Count Olaf. A sharp script and detailed world design bring the story to life, but will its unrelenting grimness and dark humour be too much for the Dads as we are after all sensitive souls?
