    You Love to Scream It 2: Possession

    You Love to Scream It 2: Possession

    Since starting this You Love to See It spinoff (focussing on weirder or more niche horror), we’ve been enamored with movies that blend drama and horror. Belzebuth used terrifying real-life imagery (depicting too-real scenes of violence) before the statue scene, and here, in Andrzej Żuławski’s only english-language film, we see much ado about personal drama and a marriage falling apart alongside all the gory, gruesome stuff. But there is plenty of both, and today’s trio of merritt, Collin, and Danielle all grappled with their own interpretations of this beautifully-shot, gut-wrenching movie.

    You Love To See It 27: Attack the Block

    You Love To See It 27: Attack the Block

    Since actor and activist John Boyega (perhaps best known as Finn from the latest Star Wars trilogy) has been making a stir lately with awesome speeches, we thought we’d revisit the movie that landed him his first starring Role. Attack the Block is a small-scale alien invasion movie, with a lot of heart, a ton of energy, and some interesting messages. Focusing on a group of inner-city kids who get involved in a bizarre alien menace, encounter a bunch of white people who maybe learn a thing or two, and, for a brief moment, Pogo the dog, it’s a compact, breezy, funny thriller.

    You Love To See It 26: Austin Powers: International Man of Mystery

    We watched 1997’s grooviest movie — beloved spy spoof Austin Powers: International Man of Mystery — this week, and we brought along a special friend to help us! Pat Gill of Polygon fame is here to deconstruct this Mike Meyers vehicle about a super-spy transported from the 60s to the 90s, complete with looks at deleted scenes, very special stories about teen viewings of the film, and some groovy voices.

A great podcast worthy of your time

You Love to See It is a gem of a podcast. The hosts can change, but they all have different cultural niches they know so well and can ellucidate a novel topic or make you feel at home revisiting an old favorite. The reviews and main topic episodes are super fun, especially if they go off topic there is value and so much laughter in their conversations. well worth your time!

A True Delight~~~~

The people over at Fanbyte are really some of the best around and their podcasts are a joy to listen to—they’ve got some of the most enjoyable chemistry I’ve ever heard between aaaaaaany set of hosts. I’m very happy that I found them and their bananas catalog of bananas shows

The Range!!

This group can go from covering themselves in Gamer Goo™️ to intelligently dissecting HBO’s The New Pope without breaking a sweat and it’s very impressive/entertaining. (The Gamer Goo might have something to do with the lack of sweat but you get my point.)
