Talking Stars Podcast S01 E11: ‘Favorite Character Screen Introductions’

*This episode may contain spoilers.
willycanePodcast Show Notes:
Most movie lovers can remember certain characters bursting onto the screen in unforgettable scenes. The challenge to our three movie critics today was to summon some favorites and share them on the podcast. It made for a lively discussion and touch the neurons of quite a few memories both vintage and recent.

The order of the episode is as follows:

1. Ice Breaker: Each critic brings one film we have seen recently as a spoiler-free discussion. Darren starts.

2. We all bring 2 favorite character screen intros each. Becky Starts.

3. We each bring and discuss a film we wish we could have seen and why we would have or want to see the film from this year (preferably not something that has come out in the last 2 weeks or so this also offers a follow up chat for later shows too where we can get into spoilers.) Damien Starts

Films mentioned:
The Man Who Knew Infinity, House of Frankenstein, Howl of the Wolfman, The Family Fang, The Empire Strikes Back, Fast and the Furious, Silence of the Lambs, Ocean’s Eleven, Jurassic Park, Alien, Sing Street and more.

Talking Stars Podcast S01 E09: ‘Crawl or Die’ and ‘The BFG’

What can a big budget do for a so so movie story? How about what can a great story do with a lower budget? These are issues Damien and Darren tackle today in this episode of “Talking Stars.” We hope you enjoy.

Crawl or Die and The BFG are the two films covered in this episode. We talk about the first film that has a relatively small budget, Crawl or Die, and stack it against the high budgeted BFG. You can read in our excitement that Crawl or Die did a lot more with less to making a great film. Listen to Darren and Damien discuss these two films in this episode. This podcast includes spoilers.
