    Episode 646: The Usual Suspects (1995) and Memento (2000)

    This week on the Talk Without Rhythm Podcast I'm concluding NeoNoirVember with a question: if a movie is known for its twist ending, does it still hold up to repeat viewings? I'll see if I can answer that with 1995's The Usual Suspects and 2000's Memento.

    Episode 642: Never Hike Alone (2017) and Never Hike in the Snow (2020)

    This week on the Talk Without Rhythm Podcast I'm wrapping-up my Friday the 13th series with two Jason fan films: 2017's Never Hike Alone and 2020's Never Hike in the Snow. Now I was supposed to have Steven King of The Saturday Night Slasher and Invasion of the Podcast on this episode, but he mysteriously vanished doing field research at an old abandoned summer camp. So instead, his co-host Paul is once again stepping up to talk some Jason, with or without rhythm.

El Goro is a man amongst men. He puts together one of the most consistently entertaining and insightful shows around. No half-stepping here, folks. This is the kind of podcast that gives movie podcasts a good name. Every episode goes the extra mile.
