Ep 433 – Peppermint – Jackie Kashian & Simon Ore
Graham and Chris welcome Simon Ore and Jackie Kashian. Graham liked Peppermint a lot. Chris was bummed about Anon. Jackie liked Spy Who Dumped Me even with some problems. Chris got some He-Man doc love. Simon and Jackie talk about their new comic book project and more!
The documentary Who Is Harry Nilsson, and Why Is Everybody Talkin’ About Him? tells the story of an angelic-voiced upstart who grew up in a New York City slum and wound up a part of the upper crust of rock royalty. It’s the latest film by writer/director/co-producer John Scheinfeld, who made The U.S. vs. John Lennon which I also enjoyed.Details
Ok, I admit it; I’ve not read a lot of Shakespeare. But I’ve enjoyed all of what I’ve seen adapted to film. Ha – spoken like a true MTV generation kid (ok, a little pre-MTV generation). And I have also enjoyed much of Julie Taymor’s directing. I loved the passion and creativity of her film Titus based on yet another Shakespearean work.Details
