Lass is More with Josh Lasser

Focusing on the media, "Lass is More" sits down with the individuals who make the movies and shows that people are, or will be, talking about. The things we watch are not created in a vacuum, but rather as responses to far larger thoughts and issues. From why someone took a role to what it means to them to where they’re going next, we put the pieces of the puzzle together. The "Lass is More" podcast gets to the core of the issue, offering perspective on both the people involved in a project, and the project itself.

Tyler Perry's "Acrimony," the latest from the prolific writer-director, is now out on Blu-ray.  If you've seen the ads for the film, you're going to go into it expecting a certain kind of story.  What you're going to get, however, is something entirely different.  

Are there any takeaways there?  You bet there are!

Armando Iannucci's "The Death of Stalin" doesn't only have things to say about the death of Stalin, but modern day political struggles as well.  While an exceptionally funny film, it isn't too kind to either Stalin or what is happening today, and that's for a good reason.

Listen as we break it down for you.

"Sherlock Gnomes," the sequel to "Gnomeo & Juliet" is out this week on Blu-ray and while Josh doesn't love it as much as he loves the first entry in the franchise, he does hope that it helps shows the way forward and that more gnome movies are on the horizon. 

Listen as he explains.

This week sees new blu-ray releases of "Trading Places" and "Coming to America" as the movies are celebrating their 35th and 30th anniversaries, respectively.  They are, undoubtedly, comedy classics, but is all well within them?  

There may be sadness just beyond the horizon...

Next week both "Terminator: Genisys" and "Forrest Gump" arrive on 4K UHD.  Both these films play with history, the former with its own timeline and the latter wit the history of the United States.  Whether or not it works in either (or both) cases, it does lead to some interesting questions about right and wrong.

For Josh's money, "Peter Pan" is one of the best classic Disney animated films and so he couldn't be more excited today as on the podcast he talks to Kathryn Beaumont, the voice of Wendy Darling.  She is joined by Mindy Johnson, an author and historian who literally wrote the book on Tinker Bell.  

What was filming like?  How do these two women see the legacy of the movie?  We delve into those questions and more.
