BETTER IN THE DARK #123: WATERCOLOR WITH BLOOD AND BULLETS-THE CAREER OF KATHRYN BIGELOW

 

 

The Boys From Brooklyn are back to induct the first woman into their Hall of Great, Great Men as they celebrate the artistic-yet-genre career of Kathryn Bigelow.

Along the way they examine the televisual train wreck that was Wild Palms, discuss the impact her original career as a painter had on her moviemaking, and debate whether she’s hotter than Linda Hamilton! All this plus the problems of basing your films on current events, what do you do when Juliette Lewis and / or Illeana Douglas asks you if you want to hit it, spokespeople for Jewish Hotness, and gratuitous Martin Scorsese! ┬áSo get to clicking!

Just as his latest collaboration with Johnny Depp, Dark Shadows, reaches the theaters (and that might be part of the problem), The Boys Outta Brooklyn reconvenes Director’s Court to pass judgement on Tim Burton. Tom and Derrick cover the man’s entire career and try to figure out if the man is still blazing new trails or relying on the same old tropes over and over again. Plus Derrick knows the value of Johnny Depp to moviegoers, why the Gene Wilder version of Willy Wonka may be a demented serial killer, and–for the first time ever–our subject may get his revenge. You know Spectre is really swell, so get to clicking!

BETTER IN THE DARK #54: INTO THE COLD, DARK WOODS

In this episode, The Guys Outta Brooklyn look at a point in the history of Disney where the company was losing money and the urge to experiment was high. From the big-budget science fictioner The Black Hole to the ground-breaking Tron to the slow motion accident that was The Black Cauldron, Tom and Derrick evaluate a sextet of Disney’s most peculiar releases. Plus video arcade memories, the ending of The Hunchback of Notre Dame you should’ve seen, and wacka-chickas. Lots of wacka-chickas. If you don’t want to be put on the game grid, get to clicking!
