    Alice (1988) ft. Gargus - Jan Švankmajer’s nightmare box

    Gargus returns to The Goods with a curio: A freaky Czech stop-motion adaptation of Alice's Adventures in Wonderland.

    Join as Dan, Brian, and Gargus discuss Lewis Carroll and the many Alice adaptations, Švankmajer's eye-popping stop-mo style, the pros and cons of the story's episodic rhythm, and some of the most memorable, viscerally uncomfortable moments any of us have seen.

    Then (starting 1:11:25) they rank their Top 5 (and Bottom 1) Pixar movies in the celebrated studio's nearly-thirty years.

    It’s Potty Time (1992) / Barton vs. Winona State (2007) - An April fool, as it were

    It’s Potty Time (1992) / Barton vs. Winona State (2007) - An April fool, as it were

    The Goods continues its tradition of bringing not-quite-films to share with listeners to celebrate April Fools Day. First, Brian helps Dan become a super duper pooper as they watch the potty training VHS special from the early 1990s. There's a clown and a foot-tall gremlin named Mr. Penders, too.

    Then, Dan walks Brian through a college basketball highlight he discovered when he was in college. They interrogate the fine line between a hero and a legend.

    Happy April Fools Day from The Goods: A Not-Quite-A-Film Podcast!

Not Your Average Film Podcast

The Goods is a new film podcast that surprisingly avoids a lot of the pitfalls that new podcasts fall into. First of all the audio is very high quality, especially in the newer episodes. But even in the first few episodes, there is very little background noise (something I am particularly sensitive to) and the hosts come through crisp and clear. The Goods also avoids the common problem of trying to imitate other more succesful podcasts. From the unique rating system they use, to the movies they choose to review, you can tell Brian and Dan are really trying to do their own thing here, and in my opinion it works. I also really appreciate the lack of filler in each episode. Each one is between an hour to an hour and half, but they feel much shorter. They're consistently entertaining and it never feels like the hosts are belaboring a point. Also, no ads whatsoever. Definetely check it out if you're a movie lover.
