When a listener dedicates a podcast commission to his late wife, you treat it with respect. When the movie is about death and the afterlife, you add a degree of reverence. When one of your podcast hosts is dealing with a recent loss, you take the whole thing personally. And when Albert Brooks is the romantic lead, you have to throw all of that out the window. "Defending You Life" is a 1991 romantic comedy destined for a good shatting, and it treated the Shat Crew to some lively discussion of past lives, simpler times, biggest fears, and crimes against Meryl Streep. The podcast also took us to places we never imagined we'd go: highlighting the difference between Albert Brooks and Larry David, worshipping Rip Torn and earnestly drawing parallels between purgatory's legal proceedings and Franz Kafka.  SUBSCRIBE Android: https://shatpod.com/android Apple: https://shatpod.com/apple All: https://shatpod.com/subscribe CONTACT Email: hosts@shatpod.com Website: https://shatpod.com/movies Leave a Voicemail: Web: https://shatpod.com/voicemail Leave a Voicemail: Call: (914) 719-7428 SUPPORT THE PODCAST Donate or Commission: https://shatpod.com/support Shop Merchandise: https://shatpod.com/shop Theme Song - Die Hard by Guyz Nite: https://www.facebook.com/guyznite

In this schlocky 90s comedy, Lt. Cmdr. Tom Dodge and his tattooed dick are facing a stacked deck. Due to his decorative penis and quirky methods of command, Dodge has been passed over for promotion by the Navy Selection Committee year after year. But when Rip Torn decides to pull rank out of pure nepotism for his own errant son (which no one seems to notice or care about), Dodge finally gets a shot at captaining his very own recommissioned, yet utterly decrepit, submarine. It's up to Dodge and his colorful crew of misfit seamen, including a shockingly female Diving Officer, to navigate the USS Stingray through a War Games exercise that will determine his fate in the U.S. Navy.

ABOUT LEE GRANT (FROM TCM.COM)An attractive brunette with angular features, Lee Grant began her career as a child performer with NYC's Metropolitan Opera. By age 11, she had become a member of the American Ballet Theatre. After music studies at Juilliard, she won a scholarship to attend the Neighborhood Playhouse and switched her focus to acting. Grant understudied the role of Ado Annie in a touring production of "Oklahoma!" before landing her breakthrough stage role as a young shoplifter in Sidney Kingsley's "Detective Story" in 1949. Hollywood soon beckoned and she recreated the role in William Wyler's 1951 superb film version. Grant won the Cannes Film Festival Best Actress prize and earned a Best Supporting Actor Oscar nomination for the role. Seemingly on the verge of a brilliant career, the actress found herself the victim of the blacklist when her husband, playwright Arnold Manoff was named before the House Committee on Un-American Activities. Grant herself refused to testify and the film offers over the next decade were sporadic.Returning to Manhattan, Grant found work in TV (e.g., the daytime soap "Search for Tomorrow") and on stage (i.e., "A Hole in the Head" 1957; "Two for the Seesaw" 1959). After earning an OBIE Award for her work in Genet's "The Maids" in 1963, her small screen career began to pick up. In 1965, Grant joined the cast of the primetime soap "Peyton Place" as Stella Chernak and picked up an Emmy for her work. She earned a second statuette for her performance as a runaway wife and mother who ends up at a truck stop in California in "The Neon Ceiling" (NBC, 1971).By the time she had earned her second Emmy, Grant's feature career had been rejuvenated with her stellar work as the widow of a murder victim in Norman Jewison's Oscar-winning "In the Heat of the Night" (1967). That same year, she essayed a neurotic in the campy "Valley of the Dolls." In "The Landlord" (1970), she was the society matron mother of Beau Bridges and her comic portrayal earned her a second Oscar nomination as Best Supporting Actress. Grant then played the mother of all Jewish mothers, Sophie Portnoy, in Ernest Lehman's film version of Philip Roth's novel "Portnoy's Complaint" (1972). Hal Ashby's "Shampoo" (1975) finally brought her a Best Supporting Actress Academy Award as a Beverly Hills matron having an affair with her hairdresser. The following year, Grant received a fourth nomination for her deeply moving portrayal of a Jewish refugee in "Voyage of the Damned."Her subsequent screen roles have been of varying quality, although Grant always brings a professionalism and degree of excellence to even the smallest role. After striking out as a sitcom lead in the underrated "Fay" (NBC, 1975), she delivered a fine portrayal of First Lady Grace Coolidge in "Backstairs at the White House" (NBC, 1979), was the domineering mother of actress Frances Farmer in "Will There Really Be a Morning?" (CBS, 1983) and excelled as Dora Cohn, mother of "Roy Cohn" (HBO, 1992). On the big screen, Grant lent her substantial abilities to "Teachers" (1984) as a hard-nosed school superintendent, "Defending Your Life" (1991), as an elegant prosecutor sparring with adversary Rip Torn, and "It's My Party" (1996), as the mother of man suffering from complications from AIDS.While Grant has continued to act in features and on TV, she has concentrated more on her directing career since the 80s. After studying at the American Film Institute, she made the short "The Stronger" (1976) which eventually aired on Arts & Entertainment's "Shortstories" in 1988. Grant made her feature debut with "Tell Me a Riddle" (1980), an earnest, well-acted story of an elderly couple facing death. She has excelled in the documentary format, beginning with "The Wilmar 8" (1981), about strike by female bank employees in the Midwest. (Grant later directed a fictionalized account entitled "A Matter of Sex" for NBC in 1984). She steered Marlo Thomas to an Emmy in the fact-based "Nobody's Child" (CBS, 1986) and earned praise for helming "No Place Like Home" (CBS, 1989), a stark look at the effects of unemployment. A number of her documentaries have been screened as part of HBO's "America Undercover" series, including the Oscar-winning "Down and Out in America" (1985), about the unemployed, "What Sex Am I?" (1985), about transsexuals and transvestites, "Battered" (1989), about victims of domestic violence, and "Women on Trial" (1992), about mothers who turn to the courts to protect their children. In 1997, she produced, directed and hosted the well-received "Say It, Fight It, Cure It" (Lifetime) which focused on breast cancer survivors and their families.ABOUT KILLIAN AND THE COMEBACK KIDSIn August, film distributor Hope Runs High will release its latest feature film across VOD platforms - bringing the much-lauded "Killian & the Comeback Kids" to a national audience outside of its 30 city theatrical release. For composer-writer-director Taylor A. Purdee, "Killian & the Comeback Kids" is a passion project that has united a dynamic team of creatives both onscreen and off. Concurrently with digital release, the film's screenplay will be preserved by The Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences' permanent archive.With the film's initial theatrical releases, Purdee became the youngest director in 2020 and 2021 to have a film playing in major American exhibition circuits. He is also the first bi-racial director-star of African American descent to have a film theatrically released in the United States in the 21st century.'Killian' is the story of a young mixed-race musician forced to return to his rural hometown, burdened by the expense of his college degree. A chance encounter with a childhood acquaintance takes his summer in a new direction as the pair enlist a rag-tag band of other struggling locals to play a music festival coming to their once-prosperous steel town. With youthful ambition and an unflagging passion for folk-rock, Killian and the band take a shot at uniting their divided community and setting the stage for their futures.Purdee discusses the film's resonance in the current moment. "Folk music has always represented three things: a lot of self-determination, social responsibility, and a DIY spirit that happens to run through most younger generations. In a moment where the culture seems increasingly divided, when higher education could be viewed as more of a corporate scheme than a ticket to prosperity, and when one-third of our young people remain suspended in an elongated adolescence, our view of professional and personal identity is worth reimagining."The film's music by Purdee and his The Cumberland Kids bandmate Liam Higgins garnered Oscar buzz, and Purdee's original screenplay will be preserved in The Academy's permanent archive. The film stars Taylor A. Purdee, Kassie DePaiva, Nathan Purdee, John Donchak, Shannon O'Boyle, Shane Andries, Emily Mest, Yael Elisheva, and Andrew O'Shanick, and features Maddi Jane and Academy Award-winner Lee Grant."With a cast built of new faces, street musicians, Broadway mainstays, daytime superstars, new media darlings, and a living legend of classic Hollywood, our disruptive star power is the perfect mixture for an unconventional film in unconventional times."SYNOPSIS: Killian & the Comeback Kids is the story of a young mixed race musician forced to return to his rural hometown after an expensive college degree. A chance encounter with a childhood acquaintance gives the summer new direction. Together they throw together a rag-tag band of other struggling locals for one shot to play a music festival coming to their once prosperous steel town. Armed with only folk-rock, Killian and the band hope to unite the community - - if just for one night. A little musical at the cross roads of small town America and a burgeoning youth culture only just beginning to find its voice.Here's the trailer:https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=rI6n2nkk8V0

The centrepiece of Pop Screen's Bowie month could only be one thing: David's first, extraordinary lead role, as the alien Thomas Jerome Newton in Nicolas Roeg's trippy science fiction masterpiece. For those unfamiliar with the film, Bowie plays an extraterrestrial sent to Earth to bring water back to his home planet, funding his return trip by patenting alien technology.

Journey with Jay and Shua as they look at classic sword and sorcery movies.   Conan the Barbarian has been around for almost 90 years, but 40 years ago the character was brought to life by Arnold Schwarzenegger, early in his career. This movie inspired a plethora of other stories throughout the 80's.

Plus, he finally completed the story of LEGO Star Wars, The Skywalker Saga. Now he can get back to work. Shua watched Mike Myers secret society series The Pentaverate on Netflix. It was pure Mike Myers comedy with some fun jokes and thoughtful themes.     Sci-Fi Saturdays/MCU Location Scout Be sure to check out Jay's articles on Retrozap.com.

And make sure to check out MCULocationScout.com for some Moon Knight locations and soon, more Dr. Strange in the Multiverse of Madness.    Enjoy movies! Conan the Barbarian made his live action debut in 1984 with a John Milius production of the same name. This was not Schwarzenneger's first film, but it definitely put him on the road to stardom. Despite some of it's dated effects and slow pace, it is a beautiful, fantasy epic.    There were a bevy of Sword and Sorcery films after the success of Conan. But we saw a few in a similar genre before. Disney films like The Sword in the Stone (1963) and the Harryhausen creations like The 7th Voyage of Sinbad (1958) and its sequels and Clash of the Titans (1981).    Marc Singer brought a different type of barbarian to the fantasy world. His character of Dar in Beastmaster (1982) had the ability to connect and communicate with animals that helped him defeat the evil sorcerer played by Rip Taylor.  Oops! I mean Rip Torn.    Fantasy lends itself to such a wide variety of movies such as The Sword and the Sorcerer (1982) and a rare, early Disney PG movie called Dragonslayer (1981). These kept the interest in these types of mythical worlds.    Excalibur (1981) was a medieval tale of King Arthur that brought the ancient tale to the modern screen. It also inspired some cool artwork from Shua's father. Fire and Ice (1983) featured rotoscoping animation from Ralph Bakshi. These are just a tiny sampling of this genre that was so popular during the 80s. There were so many more!   Are you a fan of Sword and Sorcery films? What type do you like?

On April 17, 1871 the Texas legislature passed a bill that has great relevance to thousands of people today and thousands more in the past. It was the Reconstruction Era after the Civil War and Edmund J. Davis was governor. It was on that day, a Monday to be precise, that the legislature passed a bill providing for the organization of the Texas Agricultural & Mechanical College and allocated $75,000 for the construction of academic buildings and accommodations. Governor Davis placed three men on a commission of three men and gave them the task of finding a location for the college on a site no smaller than 1,280 acres of land. Brazos County and the town of Bryan, which had just incorporated as a municipality that year, won the competition, largely due to the efforts of a gentleman named Harvey Mitchell, and it was a competition because there's no doubt that the college would be an important asset to any town or city. Some University of Texas alumni might disagree. Final establishment and organization of the college took a little while, and A&M opened in 1876. This college was the first public institution of higher learning for the State of Texas and, of course, grew to become today's Texas A&M University, one of the leading research universities in the country. The legislature renamed it Texas A&M in 1963 and today the Bryan-College Station university has a campus that covers over 5,500 acres and provides educations to over 70,000 undergrads, graduates students, and doctoral students. It is also home to the George H.W. Bush Presidential Library and Museum. Famous alumni are too many to consider but they do include RIP Torn, Robert Earle Keen, Lyle Lovett, and Rick Perry. Now, A&M was supposed to have opened on October 2, 1876 but this had to be delayed because only 6 students had enrolled. A couple of days later, on October 4, 1876 A&M opened for business with 40 students, all males, and 6 faculty. Today the University has over 3,800 academic staff members and over 70,000 students making it the largest public university in the United States.

A Brief History of Reel Rap Shane and Bennett started Reel Rap in the summer of 2017. Bennett became a professional podcaster and a “Chicken Guy” at the local supermarket on the same day. In Boston, Shane was growing mushrooms in his apartment and was oft mistaken for a mentally ill escapee of the local hospital, moonlighting as a barback at an upscale hotel bar.Reel Rap has its origins in the middlebrow fare that most filmgoers have forgotten. Bennett and Shane have shared formative film experiences, but they haven’t centered on blockbusters and big hits. On the big screen (the Silver), the boys have paid to see slop like The Descendants and nodded politely side by side. On the small screen (the silver), they’ve idly yipped and hollered through all manner of would-be Oscar bait and mid-budget action movies.The first season found the boys working in familiar middlebrow territory. A fascination with How the Grinch Stole Christmas (2000) led to their snout-to-tail look at the career of Ron Howard and stretched over more than a year. After focusing on Hollywood’s nicest guy, they pivoted with a season on one of its absolute worst. Mel Gibson provided the perfect opportunity to settle on a theme. After all, he represents the actor-turned-director at their most grandiose. Actors-turned-directors (more on them below) have provided Reel Rap with opportunities to discuss some of Hollywood’s biggest Ls as well as their own personal shortcomings. They’ve also discussed some of the great works of American independent cinema, some foreign gems, and even the rare transcendent Hollywood effort. To recap, here’s where the boys have tracked their mud-soaked galoshes: Season 1: Screwball Right Down the Middle of the Plate: The Films of Ron HowardSeason 2: God’s Angry, Racist Man: Mel Gibson the DirectorSeason 3: Cassavetes v. CassavetesSeason 4: A Chip on His Shoulder and a Song in His Heart: Jon Favreau’s HollywoodSeason 5: A Rich Diet: Sofia Coppola’s Substantive StyleSeason 6: Nichols & May & Reel & Rap Season 7: Pardon My French! It’s the Complete Works of Jacques Tati!That’s not including one-offs, holiday specials, and other miscellaneous episodes.Today, Shane rarely watches movies and Bennett only watches movies. It’s a match made in hog heaven. They’ve covered good movies (Symbiopsychotaxiplasm: Take One, A Star is Born, the works of John Cassavetes and Sofia Coppola), they’ve covered bad movies (The Grinch, The Dilemma, the works of Nick Cassavetes), but mostly they’ve covered anonymous movies. Some of the best episodes of Reel Rap episodes focus on movies that no one has thought about — let alone discussed at length — in years or decades. Subscribing to Reel Rap is an opportunity to hear the definitive conversations on films like Ransom, Charlie Wilson’s War, and The Man Without a Face. Hit the button above to hear the latest episode of Reel Rap. This time around, the boys provide a quick overview of their shared history and reflect on the show’s past, present, and future.A Poem for Reel HeadsBy ShaneGrand theft and the heat’s on, mayorsAnd Everyone showing their assTom Cruise too. Washed up before he’s in the wash tubNo weeping for Willow, and Gung Ho to thoseWho narrowly adored Howard’s ransom, over our heartsThere is no evidence of survivors, drafts of backdraft hopelessly hopefullyBurned.

A missing ransom that got lost in translation in a Chinese bookie’s car factory, here lies a far and away dream of licking a star. You were supposed to die at the bookie’s house, but you didn’t. You are amazing. Zathura’s birdcage shakes. Its your big day. And shadows of my uncle as he curled threats like husbands at our faces. Playtime, he called it. We knew he would be on holiday, and maybe for good. We’d commit to a sisterly suicide for our little christ and this pitiful alter serves less as a notebook and more as an Apollo, built with twigs and bound to guidance by brotherly voices. You are my man of iron, twice.

Past interviews, beyond the satellite of blood beverages and apologies. The vampire doctor will see you now. Rescheduled for sinai. The test audience hates it, and here it is in two stoned tablets the Irish warrior finally shouted along with the country:Symbolic psychos like Mr. Sophistication rode the last taxi out into plasmatic sanguine sunsetAnd just before the credits became shadows and special thanks and all curtains,A skywriter in debt on borrowed time cashed in amidst the cosmos to sing one last time to no one in particular“That’s a Reel Rap!”What’s a Reel Head?For the Reel Head, cinema is a buffet (pronounced boo-fay) that can only give you diarrhea of the mouth. Reel heads gorge themselves at this buffet like a pig at the trough. It’s all slops, in a good way. If you miss getting pretzel nuggets before a 10:00AM matinee, you might be a Reel Head. If you’ve got Criterion discs behind lock and key, you might be a Reel Head. If your neckbeard has a neckbeard, you might be a Reel Head.Reel Head Viewing ListWhat are a Reel Head’s favorite flicks? Buddy, I’m glad you asked. Excluding the films they’ve covered on-mic, here are just a few that the boys would recommend to any would-be Reel Head: Archipelago (Joanna Hogg, 2010)Certain Women (Kelly Reichardt, 2016) Miami Vice (Michael Mann, 2006)Monterey Pop (D.A. Pennebaker, 1968)Ordet (Carl Theodore Dreyer, 1955) Safe (Todd Haynes, 1995)Sherman’s March (Ross McElwee, 1985)Sink or Swim (Su Friedrich, 1990)Toni Erdmann (Maren Ade, 2016)Maidstone (Norman Mailer, 1970)Why Actors-Turned-Directors?No character in Hollywood is more interesting than the actor who decides to direct. For some, the career change comes when roles dry up. For many others, however, it’s not a retreat but a bold, even hubristic, step in a new direction. If you’ll forgive me, I think Reel Rap’s own co-host Bennett said it best:The beret and jodhpurs confer entry into a new, higher sphere, the Pantheon of Keaton and Chaplin. The role of director validates the actor’s every pretension and, for many, provides an opportunity to affirm (or, more often, reaffirm) for the entire world just how hot and multi-talented they are.Did Bradley Cooper have to lower his voice, learn an instrument, and write his own songs to make A Star is Born? Of course he did, for the same reason he had to open a scene with a shot of his own bare ass. He’s an actor-turned-director and that’s what they do. 3 Reasons to Subscribe to Reel Rap The hosts have a genuine rapport: Bennett and Shane met in a high school gym class. Their relationship was incubated in a world of towel slinging and ass slaps. It began in earnest years later, feeding on new insecurities and giving birth to bit after bit. Listening to Reel Rap is like watching a blind-drunk Jackson Pollock at work, or like living inside the moment where Rip Torn swung a hammer at Norman Mailer for an hour or so every week. Shane and Bennett meld the high and low: Reel Rap Season 3 juxtaposed the transcendent films of John Cassavetes with the work of his beefy son Nick. John’s work practically invented American independent cinema as we know it, Nick’s is a strange blend of the maudlin and the hyper-masculine. The episodes covering both directors provide a picture of Reel Rap in microcosm, it’s a mix of high and low, a show with its nose pointed toward the trough and its eyes pointed toward the stars. Reel Rap’s hosts are a lot like Shrek. They wear crappy little vests and they’ve got layers. You’ll get into heaven: Shane promised indulgences duringReel Rap’s episode on The Da Vinci Code. That wasn’t some empty cash grab. Subscribing to Reel Rap’s Patreon at the $10/month level will earn you an indulgence and a spot behind those Pearly-ass Gates.Meet the HostsShane is an actor and writer living in Austin, Texas. He does 99.9% of Reel Rap’s behind-the-scenes work. At 12, he chopped his toe off with an axe while splitting wood barefoot at his home in Yardley, Pennsylvania. His first book of poetry Sliding into First is slated for release in January 2022. His influences include Norman Mailer, Francis Scott Key and Marianne Moore.Bennett coined the phrase “my man” and is an authority, perhaps the preeminent one, on “shitboy cinema.” He once swallowed over a pound of sunflower seed shells in one sitting. It required two surgeries over four days to remove them and, even still, he had to pass a bunch of shells the old-fashioned way for several days afterward. His favorite directors include Terence Davies, Joanna Hogg, and Tobe Hooper. How to Become a Reel Head Want to realize your lifelong dreams of becoming a reel head? You’re in luck, it’s easy!1.

Introduction! Thanks for the warm and overwhelming support on the return! Chapter 007 Recap Parzival has an epiphany that his home school planet of Ludus is actually the resting place of the Tomb of Horrors. After exploiting away to travel there without zero credits, he manages to find the entrance and makes his way in, ready for the perils that lie ahead. Chapter 0008 Summary With the help of a map from the Tomb of Horrors module, Parzival makes his way through the treacherous tomb avoiding traps and monsters and collecting a heavy amount of gold pieces along the way. He's eventually confronted by Acererak who challenges him to a best 2 out of 3 game of Joust, the classic arcade game. Parzival bests Acererak winning the copper key along with a clue to the first gate but before he's able to leave the Tomb of Horrors, he's stopped short of the entrance by a mysterious figure who making their way inside as well… Chapter 0008 Narrative  Parzival uses his map to navigate through the ToH and avoid most of the traps and monsters Levels up like a few types of classes; monster xp vs GP xp; gp xp converts to OASIS credits He eventually makes his way to the Pillared Throne Room where he sees a throne and Acereak sitting there which is a break from the D&D module The voices inside our heads here - what did you hear when you read the booK? "Not horses," he replied, stepping away from his throne. "Birds." The rules to win a copper key, best two out of three. Of course, Parzival had honed his skills over time and credits Aech as it was his favorite (and former) game used to settle asinine pop culture disputes, but did you ever take issue with just how good Wade/Parzival was at everything? I've seen some of the negative criticism from people who didn't paritcularly like the novel and it's a go-to for a lot of those people. Parzival gets his arse handed to him in match #1; but then asks to play on the other side in order to win games 2 and 3 After the second win, Acererak pounds on the side of the cabinet smashing into pixles and graciously congratulates Parzival before taking the form of Anorak. Anaorak hands him the copper key, and Parzival notice two lines of text etched into the key reading, “What you seek lies hidden in the trash on the deepest level of Daggorath.” He immediately knows exactly what this hints refers to and has a hunch that he needs to travel to Middletown, a re-creation of Halliday's hometown as a boy. There, in Halliday's old home, he would find a "Dungeons of Daggorath" game and somehow that would lead him to the first gate to use the copper key on. All he needed to do now was get out of the Tomb of Horrors and make his way immediately there, but just as he was leaving the tomb, he is confronted by the silhouette of another avatar… The Pop!  Reference: “My flashlight reached into the darkness ahead, flickering off the damp stone walls.
