    Eyes Wide Shut (1999)

    Eyes Wide Shut (1999)

    Ready for an all-night sexual odyssey? We're going LONG on Stanley Kubrick's final masterpiece, Eyes Wide Shut (1999) which stars then real-life Hollywood A-list couple, Tom Cruise and Nicole Kidman.
    Trace has a lengthy production history for this Guinness Record-holding film, which appears to be making fun of Cruise's own stardom and sexuality?
    Plus: high praise for Kidman's two confession scenes, selling the film on sex, the cast that could have been, secret societies on and off screen, and talk of Kubrick "edging" the audience for 2.5 hours.

    Micro Queers: Slay (2024)

    Micro Queers: Slay (2024)

    What do you get when you cross From Dusk 'Til Dawn with To Wong Foo... or Priscilla, Queen of the Desert? Apparently you get Jem Garrard's better-than-it-should-be drag queen vs vampires Tubi film, Slay (2024). Spoiler: We both highly recommend this.
    This is just fun! From four great RPDR queens playing actual characters, to beloved locals, to heartfelt (but not soap box-y) messaging, it's wild how well Slay works.
    Plus: Adjusting to Crystal Methyd's Bella, ride or dying for Earl and Sheila, paying out for WAP, and our hopes for a sequel.

    Tetsuo: The Iron Man (1989)

    Tetsuo: The Iron Man (1989)

    Strap in for an aural assault because we're checking out Shinya Tsukamoto's Tetsuo: The Iron Man (1989) for its 35th anniversary. C/W: the cat dies.
    This 67 minute black and white, nearly dialogue-free film is a wild and intense experience. It's also surprisingly queer! From a sexually dissatisfied hetero couple to men checking each other out during sex to M/M assimilation to jizzy fluids, it's not a reach to say the salary man and the metal fetishist are into each other.
    And that's without even getting into the metal dick drill of it all!

Always making me laugh!

Joe and Trace are hilarious! Exactly the brand of humor to entertain my hour long commute. They are both well versed in the horror genre and are always recommending films, both good and bad, that I always end up enjoying. Thanks for the many hours of entertainment!

Do Better.

“I think she looks more like Björk the more she gets beat up in this movie, which is a really weird thing to say.”

Too weird, actually. The Deadgirl episode is so mishandled and embarrassing, I cannot fathom it exists. How are you going to leave a content warning for sensitive topics and make such an insensitive joke that's not even funny, Trace (also Dax)? Joe, you're just as pathetic for staying silent and not calling them out, or apologizing on behalf of them, too, when for other insignificant things Trace says you're so quick to do so. It's funny how you both are so sensitive, defensive, and articulate when supporting trash and the queer readings you guys do, but are not when cracking the dumbest jokes, which could alone, ironically trigger someone.

After hearing the Deadgirl episode, I

feel so disgusted and I want nothing to do with this podcast. Either way, the basic production info. and plot readings, along with the surface level queer readings are not cutting it, and never have. Like a former review mentioned, you both have pigeonholed queer people more to the giggles. Take both of your jobs more seriously, because what's not a joke are the listeners who often pay you with their hard earned money for you both to do this.

From a queer woman to you queer men, respect women. Help women truly feel included and welcome because the amount of times I forgot Mary Beth was even in the episode and all I was hearing was a bunch of men talking were countless.

Do better.
