Episode 46: Joe Dante

Friend and filmmaker Collin Souter returns to the show to talk about the legendary Joe Dante.  We start off by discussing his breakthrough blockbuster success GREMLINS and then take a look at the underappreciated coming-of-age gem MATINEE.  We later expand upon some more of his other films as well. In addition, Collin reviews the recent RED DAWN remake, Patrick talks about THE DIRTY HARRY films and FANTASIA, and Jim gives mad props to Spielberg’s dialogue-driven take on the biopic, LINCOLN.

In about ten days, friend to the show Robert Reineke will be joining us for a quickie episode on director Henri-Georges Clouzot as we take a look at both WAGES OF FEAR and LES DIABOLIQUES.  Please be sure to leave us a voicemail to play on the show as well at 224-366-9528. If you’re a movie blogger/podcaster and would like a guest spot on the show to talk about a filmmaker whose work you admire. Thanks again for listening and be sure to check out our updated upcoming schedule in the sidebar to see which directors we’ll be talking about soon!
