DRtL Episode 59: Favorite Horror Actors!

0 Comments | This entry was posted on Jun 14 2017

Welcome back to Don’t Read the Latin, where in this episode, we’re talking about our favorite horror movie actors — the scream queens, sinister villains, and creepy little character actors who populate the films we love. These are the people we love to watch over and over again, the performances that can get us into the theater every time. We’re sure you’ll know and love many of these screen icons as well, and hope that you’ll learn some new names you should be looking out for, as well. Let us know if there’s anyone else you think we should have mentioned!

(Thanks for your patience with our slight delay in getting this episode to you, and we ask your patience with the weird little pop-and-hiss that crept into the audio of this episode. It’s pretty mystifying — we used the exact same audio setup as we have for the past couple of episodes, and we didn’t have this trouble then. Perhaps you could pretend we’re having this conversation while sitting next to a crackling campfire? Or not. Suit yourselves.)

DRtL Episode 46: Horror Double Features!

0 Comments | This entry was posted on Jul 18 2016

If you’re starting to plan your Halloween party — and if you’re not, you’d better get on that, you only have 104 days left — we have totally got you covered this episode. Want to show your friends a couple of movies? This episode we talk about Horror Double Features and give our picks for what movies pair together well, like pairing cheeses and fine wines. While we’re at it, we talk about just what exactly makes two movies go together well as a single viewing.

Spoiler Warnings
We discuss the endings of both 10 Cloverfield Lane and Ex Machina. If you don’t want to hear the details, skip forward a couple of minutes when you hear us mention those titles.

Technical Notes:
We mention at the beginning of this episode that we were recording it on our laptop and on our new audio recorder, because Montoure didn’t trust that the recording was actually, you know, recording. And it’s a damn good thing he’s paranoid, because it turns out that the recorder did not save a file at all. The quality the first time we used it was great, and it will be a fine tool to add to our podcasting arsenal if we can ever figure out how to use the damn thing.

The Bag of Fucks
We mention in passing The Bag of Fucks, which is an awesome hand-made creation by our friend Dmitri Arbacauskas at Tormented Artifacts. When you have just run out of fucks to give, here’s the bag you could load some more into. (Or you can just open the bag if you want to show people that it is, indeed, empty.) You can get one of these beauties here if you are so inclined.

Other Podcasts
Jennifer mentions a few of her new favorites among the podcasts she listens to, so if you’d like to check those out, here they are:

 

In the News
Since we brought up Chopping Mall, a movie about security robots gone rogue in a shopping center, we naturally talked about a related story in the news recently, and in case you missed it, here it is: A mall security robot has knocked down and run over a toddler in Silicon Valley.

DRtL Episode 20: Guilty Pleasures!

1 Comment | This entry was posted on Mar 10 2015

First, a word of warning. At one point during this episode, we propose a drinking game — that you drink every time we say something to the effect of, “This is not a good movie.” Do not do this. You will die.

That said — join Michael and Jennifer as we drag our secret stash of schlock out from the back of our video collections into the light. First we define just exactly what it is we mean when we call something a “guilty pleasure,” and then we’re off and running! Expect lots of giggling in this episode.

Episode Seventeen: We Kind of Like the 90’s!

Hello, boys and ghouls, welcome back once again to another episode of Don’t Read the Latin! This time, after our in-depth two-part episode on the 80’s, we’re going to dive into a, well, slightly less-loved decade, but one that still has more than a few gems in it. Join us, won’t you? You’ll learn more about Jennifer’s seemingly random Hollywood crushes, the too-cool-for-film-school pretentiousness of The Addiction and The Prophecy, and which movie features Billy Zane at his Billy Zaniest!

Bonus YouTube Videos!
In our discussion of Stigmata (oh, Stigmata, you’re not a good movie, but we kind of like you anyway), Jennifer brings up a Chumbawumba song from the soundtrack that’s really kind of awesome. If you’ve only ever heard that “I get knocked down” drinking song of theirs, you really need to put this in your ear-holes.

Finally, here’s the channel introduction for Count Jackula, the horror review show that we mention:

Episode Fourteen: Remakes!

Whether you love them or hate them, the horror remake is here to stay. (Hollywood loves to feast on its own dead.) Join Jennifer and Michael as they delve into the best, the worst, and the most completely pointless.

Episode Ten: It Happened On Halloween!

“Welcome to DRTL, the podcast that is not about Beastmaster.”

It’s October! It’s October! That means that this whole next month is, effectively, Halloween. We got a little excited.

This time, we’re talking about movies that take place on or around Halloween.  (Yes, including the original Halloween.) How many of them do you think you can watch this month?

 

Finally here’s a …. a …. Call it a “bonus video.” (It will make sense once you listen to the episode, honestly.)
