  3. Manhunter is terrific! Michael Mann directed that and Brian Cox plays Hannibal Lecter. Yes, that was remade into Red Dragon (the name of the novel) which came out in 2002 with Anthony Hopkins. Actually, a year before that we finally got the Silence Of The Lambs sequel Hannibal which was without Jodie Foster and directed by Ridley Scott. Julianne Moore took over the role of Clarice. The only thing that I remember about Hannibal was a scene with Ray Liotta that almost made me pass out in the theater. My favorite Jonathan Demme film is Something Wild.

  5. Susie addressed this on an episode last week. I’m paraphrasing, but I believe the gist of it was that they were encountering audio issues when they were uploading the episodes to YouTube. I seem to think that YouTube was blocking the audio, but maybe there was another issue. She also mentioned that she was going to try to upload them again. I noticed that there was an upload recently on the account and yes, it’s from October. YouTube be crazy!

  7. I have the perfect film for that you completely won me over: Barb & Star Go To Vista Del Mar. It’s available wherever you rent movies, but it is $19.99 to rent right now. It’s well worth it though! Anyways, Kristen Wiig & Annie Mumolo wrote & created an instant cult classic that might be the most quotable film in quite some time. The comedy is all over the place and I mean that in the best way possible. It’s absurd, light, goofy, slapstick, and anything goes, but the 2 main characters are what makes the whole thing work. Their friendship is really well written, yet it is a sendup of female friendships in a particular age group. The comedic landscape that the film plays around in reminded me of Austin Powers mixed with Bridesmaids and a dash of Hot Rod for the music. There really hasn’t been much in terms of new comedies since the pandemic started and obviously we need to laugh. This definitely helped fill the void big time. I just wish that I could have laughed with a sold out audience.
  8. Sorry for the really late response on this! Wow! I can’t even fathom watching 74 films over what I presume was a short window. Andrew Patterson’s next feature is a revenge thriller set in the honeybee industry. I can’t wait! You know that I was never aware of Jim Cummings or Thunder Road, until I came across The Wolf Of Snow Hollow. I’ve been meaning to rent it or track it down on one of the many streaming services, but haven’t rented it yet. Edited: I just checked and it’s on Amazon Prime Video. Hmm...I don’t remember seeing this on there last time I checked. Actually, a former co-worker of mine has a friend of his that interned on a film that Jim Cummings produced that just hit Tubi: Beast Beast. I haven’t watched that one either, but I’ve heard great things about it.
  9. Thank you for this info, pbzb! I knew that Sammy sang this during an earlier show, but I couldn’t find the title in my notes. I’ll add this to the recap and give you credit.
