Ep. #39-Eyes Wide Shut

On this week’s episode, steamy eroticism meets social commentary as we take on Stanley Kubrick’s controversial final film, 1999’s EYES WIDE SHUT. Tom Cruise and Nicole Kidman portray a status-obsessed couple whose marriage hits a rough patch, resulting in a journey of self-discovery that includes everything from masquerade orgies to sultry sailors to underage prostitutes–and no, this is not a documentary. Can matrimony survive upper-class monotony? Something tells us this isn’t in heavy rotation in the Kidman-Urban household.

Ep. #38-John Carpenter’s Ghosts of Mars

On this week’s episode, we’ve got something truly horrifying for your Friday the 13th: JOHN CARPENTER’S GHOSTS OF MARS, a film so bad that we actually kind of feel bad that Carpenter insisted on including his name in the title. An eclectic cast featuring Ice Cube, Natasha Henstridge, Pam Grier(!), and Jason Statham(!!) take on an ancient and evil spirit that is inhabiting the bodies of the citizens of Mars and forcing them to dress like extras in an Insane Clown Posse video. Can they stop the madness before an all-out Juggalo revolution occurs? Will Statham say a single line of dialogue that doesn’t include mention of his own manhood? And can Grier stop hitting on every woman within a ten-mile radius?! This is from the guy that made the original HALLOWEEN. Let that sink in.
