This week we’ve got quite the tearjerker for you…if you are into that sort of thing. Unfortunately we were not. That’s right folks, we’re reviewing Beaches as part of our Bette Midler retrospective. Apologies in advance if you loved or find close attachment to this particular piece of cinema, but we didn’t connect on any level. Sure, Bette Midler is great. She’s always great. Heck, her play about “Otto Titsling” is amazing. Even the set design slaps. It’s just not enough. As always, we had fun working through what worked and what didn’t and hope you’ll join us on this journey…to the beach.
After another delay (life, eh?) we’re back with another exciting episode of Behind the Hype. We’re moving on from our lackluster horror b-sides month to something completely different in the best way. This month it’s all about Bette Midler. To kick off her awesome filmography we’ve got the film “Ruthless People,” which was quite a blast but definitely flew under some of our radars. Join us to hear about this darkly comedic film and then go check it out as well. You’ll be glad you did.
