    #375 | Jennifer's Body

    #375 | Jennifer's Body

    Hell is a teenage girl and a girl who has certainly earned herself a cult following since she lit up on the big screen in 2009. Jennifer’s Body is an intelligent look at feminism, symbolism, purity and much more. The film is a layered composition at how we process grief; while also look forward towards healing. The relationship between Megan Fox and Amanda Seyfried allows us to equally see a false sense of identity, how society treats women and how these two characters made the film ahead of its time. It’s about to get bloody, weird and deep as Kelly Reynolds, host of the Boobies and Noobies podcast (https://bit.ly/330guest), joins us to discuss the depth of Jennifer’s Body!

    #373 | Desperado (1995)

    Let us tell you a tale of a man who you wouldn’t believe. “It was as if he was always walking in a shadow. I mean every step he took towards the light, just when you thought his face was about to be revealed, it wasn't. It was as if the lights dimmed, just for him.” We’re talking about the early works of Robert Rodriguez in 1995’s Desperado. Brently Heilbron (https://bit.ly/vmini11) joins us to talk about the El Mariachi sequel, trivia, the mental health of bitterness and so much more. Tune-up your guitar, the shadows are ready, Desperado has come.
