Don’t Read The Latin! Episode 100: Movies That Made Us!

0 Comments | This entry was posted on Aug 04 2019

Hey, Latin Illiterates, it’s our big one-oh-oh, and for this extra-sized centennial episode Jennifer Lovely and Rhias Hall had the wonderful idea to get their friends together and talk about the 5 movies that most influenced their lives.

To that end, they gathered Jillian Venters of Gothic Charm School , Monty Ashley of The Incomparable Podcast Network, Jeff Harris of Fanboy News Network , and lil’ ol’ me, Handsome Husband Jim.

You’ll learn a lot about us as people, how kids are sheltered from violent media unlike in our day (also get off our lawns), movies that were made by piles of cocaine, and hear the shriek of the Man-Bat.

Thanks for listening, folks, and here’s to another 100!

It’s that time, and here’s another episode, all about Sci-Fi horror! There’s some real lesser known gems in here, too, but Jennifer Lovely and Rhias Hall still pay tribute to the classics. Plug in your headphones, but remember to watch the skies!

…. And once again after slightly too long a hiatus, we return once more with another episode of Don’t Read the Latin!

This time out, we’re talking about heroines in horror. Horror movies tend to have more female protagonists than practically any other genre, which is something we both love about them. At some point, we plan on having a Feminism in Horror episode where we’ll delve into why we think that is and examine just how horror treats its female characters. But for now, we just want to talk about some scream queens we’ve known and loved, from our favorite classic final girls all the way to, well, The Final Girls. Give it a listen, tell your friends, and as always, we look forward to your comments.

“Two possibilities exist: either we are alone in the Universe or we are not. Both are equally terrifying.” ― Arthur C. Clarke

Lock all your windows, grab your tinfoil hats and your shotguns, and get ready to hide in your closets, because they’re almost here! The aliens are coming!

…. Okay, well, no. Probably not. But the latest episode of Don’t Read the Latin! is here, and that’s almost as scary! You can put your shotgun down, but you might want to hold on to that tinfoil hat.

Join Jennifer and Michael as they talk about their favorite alien horrors, a heaping handful of guilty pleasures, and a few movies that just didn’t work for them. And stick around for the end, for a discussion of just why movies about aliens scare us so much, and for a few words about Michael’s experiences with UFOs in his childhood!

Put on the headphones, lean back, and try to ignore the strange tall figures and the blinding bright light — the experiment is about to begin ….

We’re back, and we’re talking about some of the best horror films you might not even know were directed by women! Join us again for all this and more:

  • We babble about The Babadook and examine Jennifer’s Body. (What? Wait, no — not Jennifer’s body, that would be an entirely different podcast …. )
  • Jennifer talks about what it was like to watch American Psycho for the first time recently
  • We declare our love for the 80’s classic Near Dark and the 80’s maybe-not-so-classic Freddy’s Dead: The Final Nightmare
  • We talk about why we were disappointed in American Mary but still can’t wait to see what’s next from the Soska Sisters
  • Michael explains why he can’t wait to show Jennifer Ravenous, and he finds out something he’d rather not know about one of the actors in it
