Tarsem on the Banks of the River Kon



This week, down one Craig, we double dip into dreamlike worlds of wonder. First, we take a nap with our therapist and Satoshi Kon's memory to explore our inner deviled eggs with a dash of Paprika. The we rest and recuperate in a nice old timey hospital as a broken stuntman tries to con a kid into helping him kill himself, as Tarsem Singh giggles to himself in a corner and pushes us towards The Fall.

Ken Commando

This week Tyler strikes back for last week's dip into Wes Anderson Land with Larry Clark's 2002 drama, Ken Park, featuring all of Clark's staples like a generous helping of questionably legal young flesh. In order to push back against the rage and bitterness this inevitably grows, we also take a look at Arnie's 1985 tongue-in-cheek cult classic, Commando.
Join us, won't we?

Tweevenge

This week we return to the gritty glitter covered Hollywood Boulevard of 1985 Los Angeles to seek revenge with Avenging Angel. Then we take a skinny dip into the quirk of Wes Anderson's rich white people on a train epic, The Darjeeling Limited... which can only lead to pain for everyone.

Boy Wonder Battle Royale

RotP watches NNNBLAAB (Non-Nolan, Non-Burton Live Action/Animated Batman) theatrical release movies. Batman '66, Batman: Mask of the Phantasm, Batman Forever, Batman & Robin, and The LEGO Batman Movie. Which of these often overlooked and ridiculed entries in the Dark Knight Detective's long cinematic career holds up the best? Which reigns supreme in our esteem? Does the mantle of the Bat really belong to the Animated Series? Does the camp of '66 make people overlook its true brilliance and subversiveness? Was Kilmer just annoyed waiting for his half-caff soy vanilla latte during the whole production? Should we make a pack as a society to completely forget Clooney's time under the cowl? 
Episode 47- Burt Ward's Boy Wonder Battle Royale

Deadly Diamond Cowboy Donkeys

RotP returns after a technical hiccup last week. First we stand against an evil oil company to save the environment with Steven Seagal On Deadly Ground. After deciding that it's just not worth saving, we head to space with the crew of the Bebop, a hair too late to celebrate Cowboy Bebop's 20th anniversary properly. Learning our skills just aren't up to standards, we decide to stowaway on a leisurely cruise with a pair of showgirls and the US men's gymnastics team learn it's true that Gentlemen Prefer Blondes. Fortunately, after being thrown overboard, we are picked up by some horney Donkey Punch-ing college kids who just don't have the self awareness they seem to be trying to comment on.
