Josh has said many a time that he does not like horror, but is he lying? On today's minisode, Josh revisits the topic and offers three new-to-Blu-ray offerings which he highly recommends for your Halloween festivities. They're fun, they're amusing, and they're pretty much guaranteed to not keep most folks awake all night in sheer terror, and it's really this last one that Josh would say is most important.
Did one of these movies postulate its own failure and the other's success? As they both arrive on Blu-ray and DVD, "Lass is More" looks at the films, their messages, their ability to predict the future, and just what it is that we can learn from them.
"Dope" and "Pixels" are both now out on blu-ray and I have problems with both movies. Josh thinks one is great for nearly the entire run and the other goes very far off the rails very early on. The question for both is whether there is a single identifiable moment where the error occurs, something people can point to and say, "see, it's right here. This is what is going to leave you with a bad taste in your mouth after the credits run." Josh is betting there is and is here to tell you all about it.
Lass is More hit New York Comic-Con this past weekend and got the opportunity to sit down with the voices of Bugs Bunny, Porky Pig, and Wile E. Coyote. Hear what they, along with producer Gary Hartle, had to tell us about the new show, "Wabbit - A Looney Tunes Production" which is airing on Boomerang and Cartoon Network.
Josh will be the first person to tell you that he's not down with movies where things go bump in the night. They scare him, and he's not of the opinion that losing a night's sleep thinking you're going to be murdered by some deranged machete-wielding maniac is fun.
What Josh does like are monster movies. Here are three selections for this October, one good, one really at best mediocre but part of a good franchise, and one not good but with a wonderful monster. Today, we discuss "Escobar: Paradise Lost," "Tremors 5: Bloodlines," and "Bram Stoker's Dracula."
Tracey Birdsall has had a long career in Hollywood, and she stops by Lass is More to tell us all about it. What kinds of movies does she like? Why does she produce? What attracts her to a part? Will she ever direct? She answers all these questions and more.
