“Wanna hear the most annoying sound in the world?” Running a bit short of money these days? What would you do if, out of nowhere, you suddenly found a large amount of money in your possession? Find out what others have done in Episode 14 of my podcast Pop Art where my guest chooses a movie from popular culture and I choose a film from the more classic/art side of cinema. This time my guest, Hollywood hyphenate actor/writer/director/producer Alan Ritchson (his latest project Cicada 3301 will be released…well, when this quarantine thingy lets up) chose the Farrelly brothers first film, the outrageous farce Dumb and Dumber, and I chose the film noir cult classic Too Late For Tears, both about people who find themselves suddenly in possession of a great deal of filthy lucre. And in this episode we answer such questions as Why did Jeff Daniels only get $50,000 to do the movie while Jim Carrey got $7 million? What is the appeal of Jim Carrey? How does Clint Eastwood fit in and what does it have to do with toilets? What is the appeal of film noir? How were women seen in the 1940s and 1950s? What is a Dan Duryea and would you want to be one? And don’t forget to LIKE, COMMENT and FOLLOW.

“I have to return some videotapes.” Is the quarantine turning you a bit…crazy? Perfect time to list to the latest episode of Pop Art, my podcast where the guest chooses a movie from pop culture and I select a film from the art/classic side of cinema with a connection to it. This time, my guests Tessa Markle and Carolina Alvarez of Femme Regard Productions have chosen the adaptation of bad boy Bret Easton Ellis’s book American Psycho and I have chosen bad boy Roman Polanski’s atmospheric black and white horror film Repulsion, both concerning characters who, let us say, are going off the deep end a bit. And here we answer such questions as: Which is the more feminist film? Does the ending of American Psycho work? What does Gloria Steinem have to do with any of it? What is important about the female orgasm in Repulsion? Don’t forget to LIKE, COMMENT or FOLLOW.

"Come out to the coast, we'll get together, have a few laughs..." Have things reached a point where the world desperately needs a hero to save us? Find out with the twelfth episode of Pop Art, the podcast where my guest chooses a movie from popular culture and I, in turn, will choose a film from the art/classic side of cinema. This time, my guest, screenwriter and producer Ann Kimbrough, has chosen everyone’s favorite Christmas movie, Die Hard, and I, in turn, have chosen the French parkour/martial arts classic District B13, in which the lives of a group of people rest in the hands of some unexpected heroes. And here we discuss such topics as: Is Die Hard a Christmas movie? What part did Cybil Shepherd’s pregnancy have to do with everything? To parkour or not parkour? What is the lasting influence of Die Hard? How does the movie Taken fit in? Is this the end of French cinema as we know it? What can screenwriters learn from these movies?

“Audiences don't know somebody sits down and writes a picture; they think the actors make it up as they go along.” The quarantine is giving you a lot of time to write and work on your art. But are you? Sounds like the perfect time for the next episode of Pop Art, the podcast where the guest chooses a movie from pop culture and I, in turn, choose a film from the more art/classic side of cinema that has a connection to it. My guest, filmmaker Josh Kim, chose the whimsical, idiosyncratic movie Adaptation written by Charlie and Donald Kaufman, while I chose the film noir Billy Wilder classic Sunset Blvd. (the movie that shows the real tinsel behind the fake tinsel of Hollywood), both about screenwriters in crisis. And we cover such topics as: What does it say about screenwriters? Which is the better film? Why did Charlie Kaufman think his career was over? What was the original opening for Sunset Blvd. and how did they achieve the shot used now? Who else was considered for the various roles? Who or what is an H.B. Warner? And what is the connection to Rebel Without a Cause? Finally, remember, it’s the pictures that got small. Next up: Die Hard/District B13.

Are we alone in the universe? If not, will they come with a bang or a whimper? Sounds like time for Episode 10 of POP ART. The concept of POP ART is for my guest to choose a movie from popular culture and I, in turn, will choose a film from the more art/classic side of cinema. For Episode 10 my guest, screenwriter, film student and facebook host Mark Gunnion, has chosen the James Cameron horror/sci-fi blockbuster Aliens, while I have chosen the urban horror/sci-fi independent film Attack the Block, both about people fighting off deadly aliens. And here we talk about: What is the major plot flaw of Aliens? Which movie has the better screenplay? Is Aliens all about mansplaining? Where did Alien 3 go wrong? And how does Dr. Who fit in? Is it game over, man, game over?

The quarantine got you spending a bit too much time with the kids? Are you getting the feeling that maybe they’re really, well…evil, underneath it all? The perfect time to listen to Episode 9 of Pop Art, the podcast where the guest chooses a movie from pop culture and I, in turn, choose a film from the more art/classic side of cinema that has a connection to it. This time my guest, Damien Riley (appropriately named), of Riley on Film, chose the eschatological horror thriller The Omen, while I chose the more low key sci-fi thriller Village of the Damned, both about evil children. And in this episode, we discuss such topics as: Why were these films so unexpectedly successful? How do they rate by today’s standards? What does The Late Great Planet Earth have to do with it? What are the scariest moments in the film? Do the eyes have it? And how does Dr. Who fit in? And whatever you do, whenever your kids are around, think about a brick wall.

This quarantine getting you down? Need some adventure in your life? The perfect time to listen to Episode 8 of my podcast Pop Art. In Pop Art, my guest chooses a movie from pop culture and I choose a film from the more art/classic side of cinema. For this episode, my guest Paul Zeidman, screenwriter, script consultant, blogger and podcaster, chose George Lucas’s game changing epic space opera Star Wars, and I chose Akira Kurosawa’s great epic samurai film The Hidden Fortress, one of Lucas’s biggest influences for his film. In this episode we cover such topics as: Is Star Wars a good film or is it an important film? How did it change Hollywood? Where does it rank in the franchise? Who is Akira Kurosawa and why are they saying such things about him? What is the state of movie making today? So give it a listen. “You’ll laugh, you’ll cry, you’ll kiss three bucks good-bye.”

Been seeing a lot of films during the quarantine? Then what better time to listen to a podcast about movies that are about making movies? In Pop Art, my guest chooses a movie from pop culture and I choose a film from the art/classic side of cinema and in Episode 7, my guest, Adam Ferenz, host of the Cathode Ray Mission, chose the musical classic of infinite grace Singin’ in the Rain, while I, in turn, chose a classic of Olivier Assayas’ oeuvre, Irma Vep. And here we discuss such issues as how did Singin’ in the Rain move from pop culture to art status? Who steals the movie? What do these films have to say about the making of movies in their own culture? Who or what is a Madge Blake? And how does Batman fit in? Enjoy. And don’t forget to LIKE, COMMENT and FOLLOW.

Afraid the world is heading toward dystopia? Worried the future may be…too futuristic? The perfect time to listen to Episode 6 of my Podcast Pop Art. The premise of Pop Art is for my guest to choose a movie from pop culture and I in turn will choose a film from the art/classic side of cinema. This time my guest, film enthusiast, blogger and podcaster The Vern, of Cinema Recall, chose Paul Verhoeven’s early Hollywood directorial effort Robocop and I, in turn, chose George Lucas’s feature debut THX 1138, both dystopian tales with roboticized police forces. Here we discuss such topics as the ups and downs of Paul Verhoeven’s career; how relevant are both films to today’s world; who or what is an Ian Wolfe; what is with that white room; and other important and existential issues.

Up for a little competition? The quarantine got you playing games? In Pop Art, my guest chooses a movie from pop culture and I chose a film from the more art/classic side of cinema. For this episode, my guest, filmmaker Michelle Ehlen, chose the brilliant, hysterical Christopher Guest ensemble comedy Best in Show and I chose the dark, trenchant, violent satire of reality shows Series 7: The Contenders, both mockumentaries about competitions. And in this show we deal with such issues as: Who gives the best performance in Best of Show and what does Joe Garagiola have to do with it? How long was the script for Best in Show? What does a pregnant woman want to eat after shooting someone in cold blood? How does Star Trek fit in? Don’t forget to comment, like and follow. Next up Robocop and THX 1138.
