Episode 110: DIRECTOR’S COURT–THE CASE OF MEL BROOKS

After a long hiatus, court is back in session–and The Guys Outta Brooklyn puts the man who single-handedly created the modern movie spoof in the docket. Join Tom and Derrick as they explore their conflicted feelings about this Great, Great Man…a man whose early work is as groundbreaking and amazing as his later work is sad and unpleasant…and how his sense of humor remains timeless when many of the people who followed in his footsteps date within minutes of their films’ release. And if that’s not enough….tremble as your hosts go on a rampage against the DCnU reboot, and the state of comics in general! You know it’s a French Mistake…so get to clicking!

Episode 108: SPANISH LEATHER AND AMERICAN BLOOD: THE MYTHIC WEST OF SERGIO LEONE

The Guys Outta Brooklyn continue to celebrate Great, Great Men in 2011 by turning their sights on an Italian director who wanted to express his frustration with the American Western–and ended up revolutionizing cinema worldwide! Join Tom and Derrick as they discuss the all-too-small body of work of Sergio Leone, from The Dollars Trilogy to his handful of uncredited turns behind the typewriter and camera to his grand crime epic Once Upon A Time In America. The guys also spend some time discussing the Other Great Filmmaker of the Modern Western, Sam Peckinpah; talk about how Leone taking a chance on this television actor Clint Eastwood was integral to his success; and answer listener mail about anime and whether certain super-heroes are inherently ludicrous. You can make fun of our mule…or you can get to clicking!
