The Other Voices: The Babadook

I had no idea what THE BABADOOK would be about when I put it on. The impression I had from the Internet was that it was about a gay dinner guest in a jaunty hat. This was definitely a film where that lack of knowledge was helpful in making me very scared.

THE BABADOOK, an Australian film by Jennifer Kent, is about grief. It’s pretty easy to suss that out, which I like, because I can get really annoyed at films that have this allegory so complex that you need a PhD in Pre-post-colonial literature (an actual class I took in grad school) in order to understand them. Yes, I have a graduate degree in English. I have studied literature. I have been an academic. And I really hate having to use my degree to understand shit. Make your story deep and beautiful and artsy, sure, but make sure that at the end of the day, I can see what the central argument or point of the film actually is. Otherwise, what are we doing here.

6.04: Rapacity in Blue

This week on the podcast Bryan Dressel, Chewie “The Yogi Bear Show” Darsow, and Matt “The Pink Panther” Dykes talk “Rapacity in Blue,” the mid-season episode of season six with all the problems mentioned last week with its serialized storytelling. Lot of details to juggle and sometimes it gets fuzzy what happens where and when. But hey, we get more Blue Morpho so that’s awesome!

Stepping Through the Wormhole: 25 Years of Stargate: Part 2

Re-Opening the Gate – Stargate SG1

Due to the success of the original film, there was intention for Stargate to continue, the original creators of the film envisioned a trilogy of films-whilst others had a different idea. Producers Brad Wright and Jonathan Glassner had been working on The Outer Limits together and both of them, independently from each other, approached MGM with the same idea: a TV series based on the Stargate film. Upon realising they had the same idea, they decided to work together on the project. They spent three months studying the original film to learn the mechanics of the Stargate and came to a conclusion: there was no way that the Stargate would only go to one place. From the idea that the gate requires 6 symbols and the point of origin to establish a connection (and there are 38 symbols on the gate itself, not including the point of origin), you can deduce that there are 1,987,690,320 different permutations of gate addresses possible. That’s a lot of potential addresses to go to. So, it makes sense that there are Stargates all over the galaxy rather than just two.

Episode #293 – Revenge

And now for something completely unexpected: a rape revenge film that is good, actually, and that turns all its tropes on its head. I know, right? We’re talking about the 2017 film Revenge, from writer/director Coralie Fargeat. She brings a master filmmaker’s touch to an otherwise played out genre and asks us to take a hard look at ourselves. It’s quite the film and we do the best we can breaking down everything about it.

TRIGGER WARNING for discussions of rape and the rape revenge genre.

Hey guys! Jonathan here. Due to a variety of reasons I have to push Chapter 24 of Demon Dayz back to next week.

It was a super fun episode, even if the movie itself was only so-so. Thank you so much for your patience and see you next week as our tiefling heroes make their way to the Tower of All.

The Other Voices: El Mariachi

Many years ago, when I was a wee film baby, I read the book Robert Rodriguez wrote about making his first feature, EL MARIACHI. It was all about throwing caution to the wind, going for broke, and just making a movie with no money and a lot of moxie. He made this film with essentially no crew, which is why his book is called REBEL WITHOUT A CREW. I was inspired! Not to make a film without a crew, because that is exhausting and ill-advised, but to learn more about filmmaking and the work it requires.

Now, of course, I am film crew, and I’m a little horrified by the idea of making an entire action film with like, 3 crew members. I regularly see young filmmakers who seem to think it some kind of badge of honor to work with a tiny crew, like that makes them better. A filmmaker I knew even tried to tell me that script supervisors are an old-fashioned job that is no longer necessary in a world where you can shoot a movie on an iPhone. I can’t wait to find out how many continuity errors his most recent film has.
