PATREON MOVIE DISCUSSION: This movie was selected by our Patreon Supporters over at the Cinematic Doctrine Patreon. Support as little as $3 a month and have your voice heard! In this episode you'll hear us discuss one of the single-most bizarre stories to come from the documentary world. Journalist David Farrier stumbles upon the strange world of Competitive Endurance Tickling. What ensues is a long-stretching borderline "true-crime" drama of Jane O'brien Media. Topics: (PATREON EXCLUSIVE) 48-minutes talking about the latest Vince McMahon controversies, plus other oddities of his personality. (PATREON EXCLUSIVE) This month's curated Patreon Poll was built around "shocking movies". The idea being movies that are contextually shocking, not necessarily filled with shocking material. Tickled, as an experience, triggers everything: disgust, surprise, laughter, mockery, heartbreak, excitement, intrigue. It's the full package. Detailing caveats to engaging this movie, because there's no getting around it; the tickling is fetishistic. Beginning the long, twisted adventure of explaining Tickled from start to finish. Competitive Endurance Tickling... except they never explain how to win? How much would they have to pay Melvin to do one of these videos? Detailing how Jane O'Brien Media manipulated and harassed talent that merely said 'no'.Discussing the cultural strangeness of the West which dictates that men cannot be physical by any means without putting their sexuality in question, despite it being typical in other countries for comfortably heterosexual men to hold hands or be physically closer to one another.Getting into the subsequent 20-minute short-doc The Tickle King which details continued interventions from Jane O'Brien Media during the events of Tickled's festival and limited theater run, including a damning final confrontation.The final tragic nail in the coffin of the Tickled saga.Discussing the potential availabilities of certain sexual fetishes, regarding they adhere appropriately to biblical sexuality (basking in one another's beauty, other-oriented satisfactory experiences, and honoring each other's image-bearing nature).Recommendations: The Wolfpack (Documentary)Welcome to Leith (Documentary) The Drama of Scripture, Second EditionSupport on Patreon for Unique Perks!

In 1874 a group of buffalo hunters were camped about a mile from the site of where representatives of the trading firm of Bent, St. Vrain and Company had established a trading post in the 1840s. Ten years later the encamped buffalo hunters, hide men and merchants fought the Second Battle of Adobe Walls on June 27, 1874. The hide hunters had built a number of log buildings and surrounded it with an eight foot high corral fence made from cottonwood tree trunks that they had harvested from nearby creeks. They had two stores, a blacksmith shop, and a saloon. The location served as a place for the buffalo hunters to sell their hides and stock up with supplies. The Plains tribes were not happy with the situation. The Adobe Walls camp violated the terms of the Medicine Lodge Treaty. A young Comanche prophet named Isa-tai called for the People to gather for a Sun Dance where he called for vengeance. He claimed they would be invulnerable to the bullets of the hunters. Quanah Parker and hundreds of others answered the call. Near dawn most of the hunters were trying to repair a ridgepole in Hnrahan's saloon when the Comanches, Kiowas, and Cheyennes led by Quanah Parker and Isa-tai attacked. There were twenty-eight men, including Bat Masterson and Billy Dixon and one woman, Hannah Olds who worked as a cook, in the camp. When the attack began they sought protection of cover in Jim Hanrahan's Saloon. Myers and Leonard's Store and Wright's Store They lost two men in the first attack, two teamster brothers that had been sleeping outside in their wagon. The attackers also killed a Newfoundland dog. All three were scalped. The attacks continued until about noon, killing another man. A fourth defender accidentally killed himself by the discharge of his own gun. The attackers then set siege for about four or five days. They did not launch anymore attacks but set siege for about four or five days. It must have been a grim and tense period of time. It was on the second day that Willie Dixon made his famous shot. A group of fifteen to twenty Cheyennes appeared on a high mesa overlooking the post and from a distance of seven-eighths of a mile away Dixon fired, shooting one of the warriors off of his horse with his Sharps rifle. He hit the ground before the sound of the shot reached the group. Dixon himself must have been amazed. Word spread and other buffalo hunters came to the rescue. By the fifth day, when the Plains attackers withdrew from the fight, there were more than 100 defenders at Adobe Walls. The warriors had lost about thirty men, not being invulnerable to the bullets. Quanah himself was wounded and Isa-Tai had his horse shot out from under him. The defenders decorated the corral with twelve Plains warriors heads. Not long after the Second Battle of Adobe Walls, the United States military launched the Red River War of 1874 to 1875, which led to the Plains tribes settling on the reservations near Fort Sill in Indian Territory.

In 1908, news broke that the legendary outlaws known as Butch Cassidy and the Sundance Kid were gunned down in a shootout in Bolivia. But is that what really happened? Almost as soon as the gunsmoke cleared, rumors began to spread that Butch and Sundance might have survived, and lived on for years after.

With half the year gone, we decided it was time to reflect. We have covered a lot of movies during the first six months and we talk about our least favorites. A “topical” documentary, a much beloved horror franchise, and a Romanian animated sci-fi flick “top” our list.We start the show with talk about the Amarillo werewolf, chupacabra, or whatever the hell it was. Two of us have a pretty clear idea on what was there. One of us derails the conversation with talk of camera technology. At least we had The Munsters to talk talk about. How did Rob Zombie screw this one up?Swallowed is a queer body horror movie does some clever things. Camera placement is important in most body horror movies so audiences can see as much as possible. This leads to maximum gross out moments. Writer-director Carter Smith (The Ruins) uses body positions and shows very little in order to provide some unsettling scenes.Along with some powerful scares, it is also an intimate tale of two lifelong friends who are about to be separated for the first time in their lives. The story is heartfelt and has a very touching coda. It also has a dramatic tonal shift that may be too much for some.We close the show with a talk about our least favorites movies of the first half of the year. The running theme is "disappointment" as it is not so much about the films being bad (though most of them are), it is more about the missed opportunities. We rant about the idea of being topical, bad uses of pentagrams, and good animation gone very very bad.Adventures in Movies! is a part of the Morbidly Beautiful Podcast Network.

Alex Lehmann is the writer, director, and producer of “Acidman” starring Dianna Agron and Thomas Haden Church. He also directed the highly anticipated Black List feature, “Meet Cute,” produced by Weed Road, and starring Pete Davidson and Kaley Cuoco.A narrative and documentary filmmaker, Lehmann's films include Netflix's dramatic comedies “Paddleton,” starring Mark Duplass and Ray Romano, which premiered at Sundance in 2019, and “Blue Jay,” his narrative feature debut, starring Sarah Paulson and Mark Duplass. It premiered at TIFF in 2016 to critical acclaim. His HBO docu-series, On Tour with Asperger's Are Us is an extrapolation of his original feature doc Asperger's Are Us.Lehmann's work explores the themes of selfless love, friendship, and how a little vulnerability can connect us all.His new film is ACIDMAN.Maggie (Dianna Agron) arrives at a small, run-down house in the middle of nowhere to find it defaced by big orange letters reading ACIDMAN and learns that this is the locals' nickname for her reclusive father (Thomas Haden Church). After a decade apart, Maggie's offhand explanation for her visit is that she just wanted to check in on him, but this doesn't ring true considering how difficult he was to find. The two awkwardly want to get to know one another (Dad seems more comfortable talking through his dog Migo, or through Bobby, Maggie's childhood sock puppet friend), but are at the same time scared about what increasing familiarity will bring.After Dad reluctantly brings her on one of his nighttime outings, Maggie realizes that his obsession with UFOs and communicating with extraterrestrial beings has only intensified over the years. She struggles to understand him, his single-mindedness and deteriorating mental health, all the while with her own life-changing news to share. Letting their relationship ebb and flow through anger, silly jokes, tender gestures, and sadness, director Alex Lehmann leads the film in a beautiful meditation on the cyclical nature of parenthood and the longing for connection.
https://lindsaymorgan.co/courses This interview is so funny and so entertaining. If you need a laugh and some inspiration take a walk and take a listen! God is amazing. Born in Afghanistan, Wali and his family moved to the U.S. when he was just three years old. He was raised Muslim and found a way to keep practicing his Islamic faith while building a successful career in film & television. In addition to producing and acting, Wali made a name for himself winning the Sundance film festival, becoming the president at TapouT, and being honored with his own day & a key to the city of Santa Cruz. He'd found a comfortable balance of being a Muslim and living the American dream...until 4 years ago. A bizarre late-night encounter at a Hollywood gas station with a football and Justin Bieber inspired the start of a life-changing journey of self-reflection, a re-examination of faith, and an unimaginable discovery within the Quran. All of which helped lead Wali to accept the fullness of God's grace and love through the death & resurrection of Jesus Christ. With his deep knowledge of Islam and his personal methods of self & religious examination, Wali has been traveling the country discussing a timely and relevant topic, “How To Love A Muslim in America”. He boldly teaches audiences how to talk with Muslims about the truth of who Jesus is without offending anyone. Wali will share all of this along with his inspiring, entertaining journey of faith.

In 2014, Bean starred in DUFFLE, a short-film by indie filmmaker Eric Rhea that explores the story of a young unemployed father-to-be struggling to follow the right path when faced with two options, while under pressure to provide for his long-time girlfriend (Bean) and their unborn child.

With special guest David Michor, Anna and Derek chat about Sylvester Stallone's impressive multi-hat career, Adrian and Rocky leaving their kid alone on Christmas Eve and much more during their discussion of the "I must break you" montage-palooza masterpiece Rocky IV (1985).Connect with '80s Movie Montage on Facebook, Twitter or Instagram! It's the same handle for all three... @80smontagepod.Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/80sMontagePodTwitter: https://twitter.com/80sMontagePodInstagram: https://www.instagram.com/80smontagepod/Anna Keizer and Derek Dehanke are the co-hosts of ‘80s Movie Montage. The idea for the podcast came when they realized just how much they talk – a lot – when watching films from their favorite cinematic era. Their wedding theme was “a light nod to the ‘80s,” so there's that, too. Both hail from the Midwest but have called Los Angeles home for several years now. Anna is a writer who received her B.A. in Film/Video from Columbia College Chicago and M.A. in Film Studies from Chapman University. Her dark comedy short She Had It Coming was an Official Selection of 25 film festivals with several awards won for it among them. Derek is an attorney who also likes movies. It is a point of pride that most of their podcast episodes are longer than the movies they cover.David Michor grew up in a video store and knew right away that he wanted to be a filmmaker. He started making movies when he picked up a video camera at just 7 years old, and he hasn't stopped ever since. David attended film school at Columbia College Chicago and majored in Directing. For his final semester, he was chosen out of a large pool of applicants to attend the Semester in LA Program. Studying on the CBS Radford Lot, he honed his craft and got a job in the mail room. This eventually led to a writer's assistant position on the WB sitcom, “The Help,” working directly for the show's creator, Ron Leavitt, who also created “Married with Children” and “Unhappily Ever After.” David went on to write and direct several short films that premiered at the Columbia College Film Festival held at Sundance, including “H1N1” about a zombie apocalypse, “Snooze, Charlie” about an addiction to the snooze button, and “The Hoarder” about a demonic lamp that attacks its possessor. David is currently developing his feature directorial debut and resides in Los Angeles as a writer, director, and editor. In the meantime, you can catch his cinematic TikToks starring his baby and his dog at @albertsbucketlist.

Sean Baker: 'Tangerine' How to Shoot a Sundance Hit on Your iPhoneI've recently been looking and studying alternative shoot methods to shoot a feature film. One name that keeps coming up is Sean Baker. His ground-breaking film Tangerine made more noise at the Sundance Film Festival than the winner that year. The film was also produced by the indie film legends, Jay and Mark Duplass.Tangerine was shot completely on an iPhone. Yes, an iPhone. The great thing was that after his Sundance screening no one in the audience or at the film festival knew that the film was shot on an iPhone.What I respect about Sean Baker as a filmmaker is that he didn't focus on the technology when promoting his film, he let the story, actors and film speak for itself. If you haven't seen Tangerine you are missing out. Take a look at the RED BAND trailer below.I wanted to put together a post that highlighted what can be done with minimal filmmaking tech and a great story. Sean Baker has definitely what can be done in today's filmmaking world.Below are a ton of videos explaining the process Sean Baker and his director of photography Radium Cheung, HKSC went through making Tangerine, as well as a bunch of video explaining tips and tricks on how to turn your something you shot on an iPhone into cinematic gold. Enjoy my conversation with Sean Baker.

Erik Childress and Steve Prokopy have a half-dozen movie reviews this week that actually touch upon two franchises, an important documentary and even a couple of unexpected surprises. If you want to know more about the pre-Ghostbusters era of Ray Parker Jr. there is now a film about that (Who You Gonna Call?). Henry Czerny is a former priest is visited by a stranger with a connection to his past (The Righteous). A shy teen desperately seeks out his first kiss to finally get that dang electronic collar off his neck (Wyrm). There were two films at Sundance about the underground Chicago abortion group, but you only need to see one of them (The Janes). Adam Sandler is a basketball scout with a hot new prospect he mentors (Hustle). And finally the dinosaurs are part of our world now and Erik and Steve have a lot to say about the so-called final entry in this series (Jurassic World: Dominion). 0:00 - Intro 1:03 – Who You Gonna Call? 10:47 – The Righteous 18:36 – Wyrm 27:23 - The Janes 38:52 - Hustle 51:28 - Jurassic World: Dominion 1:16:52 - Outro

We have the privilege today of speaking with the one and only, Pony! Today we begin the show by wishing we had been recording the "pre-chat" portion with Pony beforehand. As you will find out as we get deeper into the episode, he is a fantastic storyteller and his thoughts and perspectives around hiking and the trail, are refreshing to say the least. We hop right into the show as Pony brings us through the evolution from Clay Bonneyman Evans to how he defined it as finding his "alter ego" of Pony. We chat about his introduction into the "thru-hiking world" and how it just clicked with his brain and how he operates. We dive into what this means, what does it mean when he says, "it works for my brain?" Keep your hats on because we dive deep into the perspectives and outlooks on the massively popular (and directly massively unpopular with thru-hikers) books "Wild" and "A Walk in the Woods" by Cheryl Strayed and Bill Bryson. Once again, a truly refreshing take as we chat about the goals of these books, and why they are perceived so negatively by hikers, when in fact they are truly inspirational and great storytelling. We quickly avoid the hornets nest that is documenting your hike by video on trail, and lightly tread, but just for a moment, upon the thoughts and feelings around this growing activity. We chat about Pony and how writing is his process for understanding his journey. Not just his hiking journey's, but this journey through life. We talk about his process and how he remains in the moment on trail, while continuing to pursue his passion. We chat about his growth as a writer and author throughout the years. We go deep into the "Red-Lining" concept. A very deep dive as it is something both Pony and ourselves are passionate about. We chat about the dangers of being too much of a purist, and the growth of the trail community as it begins to tackle this very turbulent concept. We chat about how this concept can be utilized on some trails, while others it is not only impossible, but not even safe. It unravels from here, the threads of this thought continue for many minutes. We chat about hiking clean and the feelings it invokes in body and mind. We chat about the CDT and bear tub claws on the PCT. We chat about writing and the feeling of being a character in a story, we chat about being in a "snow globe world", we chat about the "Blowdown, Snowdown, Hodown", we chat about connection and relationships off trail while being on trail, we chat about not receiving merit badges for suffering, we chat about his wife and my mother knowing each other in this small world we call thru-hiking (Hi Jodi and Sundance!) and we get wonderfully lost in Pony's gift for storytelling. To name a few. Truly a wonderful chat with Pony, thank you for sharing some time and your story with us! FAVORITE QUOTES: "My brain is at its best when it is on trail" "I have to write about it, because writing about it is who I am" "Every footstep you take literally brings you into a new reality" "The trail is a stage on which I as a human can be fully myself" To learn more about Pony and read his books click below: Website: www.claybonnymanevans.com Email: firstname.lastname@example.org To learn more about us click below: Website: www.ElevenSkys.com

Before Ava DuVernay became the first Black woman director to win Sundance and get nominated for Best Picture at the Oscars, she was a publicist with a little hobby, a big dream, and a lot of patience. Adam talks to Ava about how she turned her side gig of filmmaking into a brilliant career, how her leadership style has evolved over the years, and what studying MLK while making the movie Selma can teach us about what it really takes to inspire.

Boniface Mwangi is a Nairobi-based social justice activist fighting for equity in his home country and abroad. In 2007 his photos of violence following the national election went viral and spawned global attention on political instability and corruption in Kenya. He is the subject of the Sundance-award winning documentary Softie and the author of the photojournalism book Unbounded which has been hailed by Hilary Clinton and President Barack Obama. Over two million people follow him @bonifacemwangi on Twitter and Facebook where he remarkably fearlessly calls attention to untold cases of abuse, corruption, and cronyism. For his work he has been beaten, arrested for “organizing a revolution”, and had his home burned down. His 2014 TED Talk is called “The Day I Stood Alone” and in it he shares that he's called a heckler, troublemaker, irritant, rebel, activist, and … the voice of the people. He continues to fight for justice every day alongside his wife Hellen Njeri Mwangi and their three children. Boniface joined me from Nairobi, Kenya and I think you're going to feel as inspired and energized by this conversation as I was. We talk about what it's like advocating for the most vulnerable, whether we can trust photographs today, how you deal with intimidation, how you live in fearlessness, how you bring back dignity to an oppressed people, why we must all seek to become activists, and, of course, what are Boniface's 3 most formative books. This is an exciting, engaging, passion-filled conversation. Let's flip the page into Chapter 104 now… What You'll Learn: How do we advocate for the vulnerable? What was the single greatest act of giving in the modern world? How do you deal with intimidation when you have a family? How do you become an activist? What are the biggest issues in Kenya right now? Why is it so hard to travel as a black person? What should African unity bring? How was the mafia brought down in Italy? How do you live in fearlessness? Why must we all be activists? You can find show notes and more information by clicking here: https://www.3books.co/chapters/104 Leave us a voicemail.

Investigative journalist Liliana Segura joins Kate, Melissa, and Leah to tell the story of Barry Jones, who was the center of one of the cases in Shinn v. Martinez Ramirez [3:30]. The Supreme Court released an opinion in the case last week, and it's bad. There is a miniscule moment of joy, though, in the recap of the opinion in Morgan v. Sundance, which is about arbitration and also Taco Bell [51:58]. Finally, we do a quick round-up of other court-adjacent news, including the fever dream that is Ginni Thomas's email signature, and theories as to why the Court is being so unusually quiet for this late in the term [59:28].
