Emmet Asher-Perrin is a writer and cultural critic. They are also the news and entertainment editor for Tor.com Asher-Perrin critically interrogates the new Dune film and its white savior theme(s) and questions of identity, gender, power, orientalism and cultural appropriation. They also reflect upon Denis Villeneuve's choices in terms of casting, narrative, visual storytelling and character development. Mr. Bill, friend of The Chauncey DeVega Show and expert on all things Dune and science fiction, also joins this week's episode where he explains some of the many story elements that the casual viewer may have missed or not understood in the new Dune film. He also highlights the great challenges that Denis Villeneuve had to overcome in adapting such a sprawling science fiction story. Mr. Bill also translates how the events that we see in Dune part 1 are part of a much larger story – that if told correctly with sequels – will make for a powerful conclusion that greatly complicates any claim that Dune is a “white savior” story. Chauncey DeVega updates you good people on his recent health scare and why you should pay close attention to your diet. Chauncey also goes to the movies and offers up his reviews of “The Last Duel”, “Last Night in Soho”, “Halloween Kills”, “Lamb”, and “Titane” And Chauncey DeVega keeps sounding the alarm about the Republican fascist assault on democracy and how infrastructure and the “Build Back Better Plan” will not save the country if black and brown and other pro-democracy Americans are not allowed to vote.

RENEE TAYLOR BIOTaylor worked as a comedian in the early 1960s at the New York City nightclub Bon Soir. Her opening act was a then-unknown Barbra Streisand. In 1968, Taylor played an actress portraying Eva Braun in Mel Brooks' feature film The Producers, a role she got while performing the play Luv with Gene Wilder, whom Brooks decided to cast as protagonist Leo Bloom.Taylor and her husband, Joseph Bologna, co-wrote the Broadway hit comedy Lovers and Other Strangers and received Oscar nominations for having written the 1970 film adaptation. In 1971, the couple co-wrote and starred in the film Made for Each Other. A 1985 offering of theirs included the two-character comedy title It Had to Be You. The story concerns two entertainers who meet, fall in love, eventually irritate each other, and decide to marry and collaborate on playwriting together. Taylor and Bologna also co-wrote and starred in the television show Bedrooms, a series of four skits on love which Jeff Jarvis in People called "cute (if slightly off-color)." In 1996, after a several year hiatus, Taylor and her husband co-wrote and acted in the film Love Is All There Is, the story of two Italian-American families who must learn to get along when their son and daughter decide to get married. In the mid-1990s, Taylor and Bologna wrote and produced the off-Broadway play Bermuda Avenue Triangle. From 1992-94, Taylor played the overbearing Jewish mother of Brian Benben's lead character on the HBO series Dream On. In 1993, she was cast as the mother of Richard Lewis, and the ex-wife of Don Rickles, in the Fox sitcom Daddy Dearest, which was canceled after a two-month run in the fall. Also in 1993, Taylor was slated for sporadic guest appearances on the new CBS sitcom The Nanny, playing Sylvia Fine, the mother of Fran Drescher's title character. After the cancellation of Daddy Dearest, Taylor was upgraded to a recurring cast member during the first season of The Nanny and eventually a full-time cast member by the third season. Her roles on the two broadcast network series were concurrent with her work on Dream On. Taylor is most often recognized for her role in The Nanny. Her character is intent on helping daughter Fran find a husband and has a passionate love for food. Taylor's husband, Joseph Bologna, made two guest appearances on The Nanny. First, as an egomaniacal actor named Allan Beck, who tormented Maxwell Sheffield (Charles Shaughnessy) and second, in the final season, Bologna again guest-starred as a doctor and admirer of Sylvia in the episode "Maternal Affairs". In recent years, Taylor has guest-starred as Ted Mosby's neighbor, Mrs. Matsen, on How I Met Your Mother. She also had a guest-starring role on the Disney show, Shake It Up, portraying a cranky elderly woman, Mrs. Lacasio, in a retirement home. She also had a guest-starring role on the Nickelodeon show, Victorious as Robbie's cranky grandmother who needed Robbie's help with the internet. In addition to her numerous guest-starring appearances, Taylor has worked as a voice actor as the character Mrs. Start in the animated feature film Ice Age: The Meltdown, and in a recurring role as Linda's mother Gloria in the animated Fox series Bob's Burgers. Taylor also played Martha Benson in the film Opposite Day, released in 2009. Taylor also appeared on Fran Drescher's latest show Happily Divorced as the best friend of Fran's mother. In 2011, Taylor was cast in the short-lived Fox cartoon Allen Gregory, in which she voiced the character of Principal Gottlieb. In 2013, she starred in the Tyler Perry film Temptation: Confessions of a Marriage Counselor as Ms. Waco Chapman, the owner of Chapman drug company. In 2016, Taylor starred in the Netflix movie The Do-Over with Adam Sandler as the role of Mrs. Kessler and in the TV show Rock in a Hard Place. Recently, Taylor appeared in the 2017 film How To Be A Latin Lover. Taylor had a role in Tango Shalom, which she acted alongside her husband, in his final film role before his death. ABOUT TANGO SHALOM, NOW IN THEATERS Tango Shalom was directed by Gabriel Bologna, son of Renée Taylor and the late Joseph Bologna. The cast includes Golden Globe Nominee Lainie Kazan (My Big Fat Greek Wedding), Oscar and Emmy Award-winner Renée Taylor (Adam Sandler's The Do Over, The Producers, The Nanny), Karina Smirnoff (Dancing With The Stars), Joseph Bologna (My Favorite Year, Blame It On Rio, Big Daddy, Lovers and Other Strangers), Jos Laniado Claudio Laniado (Mudbound), Bern Cohen (The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel), and Judi Beecher (Taken 3, Family is Family, La Garconne). Synopsis: When a female Tango dancer (Smirnoff) asks a Rabbi (Jos Laniado) to enter a dance competition, there's one big problem-due to his Orthodox beliefs, he's not allowed to touch her! Desperately in need of splitting the prize money to save his Hebrew school from bankruptcy, they develop a plan to enter the competition without sacrificing his faith. The bonds of family and community are tested one dazzling dance step at a time in this lighthearted fable. In Los Angeles, the film can be seen at Landmark Theaters on Pico and Town Center 5 in Encino, and September 10 opens at The Laemmle in Newhall. In New York, at AMC Empire 25, The Village East Cinema By Angelika, and also opens on September 10 at The Cobble Hill 5 and Williamsburg Cinemas Brooklyn, Kew Garden 6 Queens, and Malverne 5 and Roslyn 4 on Long Island.

Tango Shalom finished its three day weekend engagement better than expected at $20,581, with an astonishing per theater average of $5,145 (second best only to Marvel's Shang-Chi). Tango Shalom also claims bragging rights to the best 2021 exclusive opening, as well having the best PTA, this Memorial Day to Labor Day summer season. Showing daily gross increases this weekend (Saturday +32% from Friday and Sunday +54% from Saturday) boasts to be the number one independent film release this weekend.

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”…

New episodes of “The Oval” are slated to be released in July 2021. Lodric is also well known for appearing as Captain Elliot, the head of militia sent to end the apocalypse on SYFY's “Z Nation” and as Lieutenant Marshall in NBC's “Grimm.” As a former U.S. Marine and extreme sports enthusiast, Lodric was born and raised in Lake Charles, Louisiana. He discovered his love for acting at his local community theatre, and eventually made the life-changing decision to defer law school to pursue acting full time in New York. It was in the city that he got to hone his craft studying and working in Broadway and Off-Broadway shows. On the theatre front, Lodric is most notably known for his classical work in roles such as General Hannibal Barca (Massanissa) and Berowne (Loves Labors Lost), for which he received rave reviews. When he is not on set Lodric is advocating for equality, across the board. He is currently using his platform to bring awareness to Maternal Mortality rates amongst minority women and to support our U.S. Veterans.
Eddie Braun recently joined host Elias in the cave! In 2016, legendary stuntman Eddie Braun successfully performed the one stunt no one, not even his childhood idol, daredevil Evel Kneivel, had ever accomplished – the famed flight over Snake River Canyon. (During Kneivel's 1974 attempt, the parachute on his Skycycle X-2 was believed to have activated too early causing him to crash. Kneivel's flight was the second most popular televised event that year-earning better ratings than the Super Bowl.) Because no motorcycle existed which could fly ¼ mile, Kneivel tapped the best - NASA engineer Bob Truax – who worked on the intercontinental ballistic missile - to design it. Unfortunately, it resulted in a historic crash, forever tarnishing the reputations of both American heroes. Eddie's achievement generated enormous media attention. What the world didn't know as he finally restored the legacies of the 70's icons by soaring across the canyon at 439MPH in 3 seconds, instantly reaching 10,000 horsepower, at 8Gs, 3000 feet in the air in a steam-powered rocket rebuilt entirely from Truax's original design (save for modifications to the parachute), is what transpired beforehand and the unprecedented hurdles one of Hollywood's biggest stuntmen faced to get there. Eddie's epic journey is now chronicled in STUNTMAN (premiered on Disney+ on July 23rd) / EP'd by Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson and partner Dany Garcia.
