    Never Say Never Again: Stuff We've Seen is Back in Action

    Never Say Never Again: Stuff We've Seen is Back in Action

    Never say never again; wise words from Sean Connery on playing James Bond after Diamonds Are Forever, which is the first time he came back to the role after vowing never to play the character again. Well, he did return for 1983's, Never Say Never Again, and the verdict's still out on if that was a wise idea or not.
    Still, just like Sean Connery, Jim and Teal vowed the show was over, well...okay, Jim did. But Teal had other plans, and here we are--back in action, and ready for another season of Stuff We've Seen. What's on tap for our first return episode?
    Well, first, Jim reveals what he's been doing while on break from the show. It turns out, he was finishing, and self-publishing his first novel. It's a YA look back at his high school days from the late 1980s. The book is, "Parental Guidance Suggested: A Wicked Awesome Tale Of High School In The Late 80s That's Totally Not Rated PG". It's available on Amazon for Kindle, Paperback, or Hardcover. Just search by the main title and James Kent, and you should find it.
    That announcement segues into a discussion on teens in trouble movies, where we spotlight two films: The River's Edge (1987), and Over the Edge (1979). These two films capture something real and true about teenagers that Jim and Teal feel is missing from today's films about youth.
     
    Lots to enjoy this episode. And we're glad to be back at it. Never say never again!

    Priscilla and May December: The Fourteen-Year-Old Connection

    Priscilla and May December: The Fourteen-Year-Old Connection

    Priscilla and May December are two films now available to stream or watch on Netflix that share a strange bond. They both involve plotlines that deal with inappropriate relationships between adults and fourteen-year-olds.
    This week Jim and Teal take an inside look at Sofia Coppola's Priscilla, about the relationship between Priscilla Presley and Elvis. Jim notes some of the striking similarities between this film and Todd Haynes' May December.
    What else? Jim and Teal offer up an alternative holiday classic, the 1961 gritty noir, Blast of Silence.
    Finally, Jim and Teal gift each other by watching a film that the other one recommends. Teal watched a film from the BFI 250 list, the amazing The Ascent, and Jim watched this year's independent film, How to Blow Up a Pipeline.

Great discussion and best audience interaction in film podcasts

If you’re like me and most other people who love movies, you quickly realize that nobody around you wants to hear your thoughts on why Whiplash is the greatest movie of the last decade or see your rankings of Wes Anderson films. The Movie Morlock podcast is a place where you go to hear people who love movies just talk about them, and James is always open to having people on talk about movies with him. Really cool show.
