    Shyamalamania - Lady in the Water (Preview)

    This is a 5-minute sample clip from our Patreon feed. If you'd like to hear this episode in its entirety and more episodes like it, subscribe for as little as $1 per month over at patreon.com/thepccpodcast
    In this bonus edition of The Pod Charles Cinecast, we are back in the world of SHYAMALAMANIA, where we are charting the films of M. Night Shyamalan in special Patreon exclusive episodes.
    Join hosts Jonathan Foster and Fil Freitas, as they dive into the murky waters of a film that some describe as a religious experience. The story centres around a broken man working as a property manager of an apartment complex in Philadelphia. One night he discovers a naked woman in the swimming pool and soon gets dragged into a bedtime story that must see him return this woman (a narf) to her home of the water world. But first, she must clear the mind of an author and inspire him, so that he can write the book that will inspire the person that will change the world. And that author is none other than M. Night himself.... What a twist!
    Of course, we are talking about M. Night Shyamalan's 2006 fantasy thriller, LADY IN THE WATER, starring Paul Giamatti, Bryce Dallas Howard, M. Night Shyamalan and features Jeffrey Wright and Bob Balaban. Enter a world where M. Night is totally losing his mind over criticism, burning bridges with Disney, snapping back at critics, trying to pass off a bedtime story as a real Hollywood movie and dishing out the hot goss in a tell-all book. No, seriously...

    Brotherly Love 1 - The Hudsucker Proxy vs Dumb & Dumber

    Brotherly Love 1 - The Hudsucker Proxy vs Dumb & Dumber

    This week on The Pod Charles Cinecast, we present a brand-new miniseries – BROTHERLY LOVE – where we'll once a month be pitting some films from filmmaking brothers the Coen Brothers vs. the Farrelly Brothers. Both sets of brothers saw some of their best films come out between 1994 - 2003, and we'll be taking a look into this small window of time to see who is the best of the brother filmmakers (I mean, we know who it is... it's just for fun. You know... for kids?)
    In the debut episode, we'll be looking at two films from 1994, with Joel and Ethan Coen's first big budget studio film, THE HUDSUCKER PROXY, vs Peter and Bobby Farrelly's debut feature, DUMB & DUMBER.
    Tim Robbins, Jennifer Jason Leigh and Paul Newman lead the Coen's The Hudsucker Proxy, about a mailroom clerk who is plucked from obscurity to be the president of a major corporation in order for the scheming board to take over full control of the company's stock. A throwback to the screwball comedies of the 30s and 40s, the film failed at the box office, but became a big cult hit. But, is the fast-talking comedy enough to take on the Farrelly's breakout first feature?
    In Dumb & Dumber, Jim Carrey and Jeff Daniels are two moronic buddies who take a briefcase across the country to return it to a woman they think lost it, getting mixed up in a kidnapping plot and a whole load of other shenanigans. It's incredibly dumb, but still packs in plenty of laughs 30 years later. The film was the crowning achievement in Jim Carrey's massive run of 1994 (which also saw him star in Ace Ventura and The Mask) that would see him become one of the biggest stars of the 90s.
    Which brother will win Brotherly Love, and be crowned the best brother filmmaking duo of the 90s? Tune in to find out...

I’ve just discovered this little gem of a podcast and have moved it straight on to my Stay Up To Date list.

The two hour The Room special just flew by and felt very personal as to date it’s the only film I’ve seen at the cinema (twice)

I look forward to finally catching up and maybe getting one of those memberships they occasionally mention...
