There is a moment when a bad movie becomes a good one, when the horror of the ridiculous plot or dialogue or acting or whatever turns from being a negative to a positive. That exact point is ill-defined, but on today's podcast we look at a new movie which manages to make that pivot.
There is fantasy and there is reality and they are two separate and distinct things... or are they. Does one bleed into another? Can one will fantasy into reality? Can fantasy turn into reality despite one's wishes?
On the surface, "Hello, My Name is Doris" and "10 Cloverfield Lane" seem like completely opposite sorts of films, but there just may be more to them than meets the eye.
What is it to be a part of a genre? Well, to some extent, it is an easy way for folks to classify your movie. But, if you ask us, some of the best movies broaden the definition--or our expectations--of a genre.
Today, "Lass is More" looks at two such movies -- movies which, while animated, prove that animation can be more than silly "kids' stuff."
In this episode we have a great discussion with Elizabeth Allen Rosenbaum, the director of a new film starring Nick Jonas, "Careful What you Wish for." Our website, The TV and Film Guy's Reviews also offers up one bonus follow-up question and answer from Rosenbaum.
As Rosenbaum's movie is a genre update we also include a bit of discussion on "Triple 9" and "13 Hours" in the podcast and on the site as those two are also examples of genre updates (one successful, one not).
