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.

This week we're talking about the movie "Badland," a new western film out this Friday.  It has all the elements you'd expect from a western, but maybe not all in the best order, or examined in the right fashion.  So, is ticking the box for all the various tropes enough to make a good movie or is something more required?

There is nothing inherently wrong with Disney remaking every single animated film they've ever done as something closer to live action.  What is wrong is their not being a new take on the movie except for "well, it's closer to live action now." 

We compare and contrast 2019's "The Lion King" with the completely wonderful "Galaxy Quest" on today's podcast.

There are some movies which clearly wish to be thought of as "Important."  There are other movies that just want the audience to enjoy themselves.  This week, we're looking at two of the latter as "Crawl" and "Night Hunter" have arrived on Blu-ray.  Neither is likely to win any sort of award, but they both pull you in and don't let go until the credits roll.

Sam Mendes, Dean-Charles Chapman, George MacKay, and Roger Deakins were at New York Comic-Con this year to talk about their upcoming World War I movie, "1917."  We got the chance to talk to the four men about the process of preparing for and filming this movie meant to look like a single shot.  

And, because this movie comes out on Christmas and we talked to these people at NYCC, we also throw in a good word for "Anna and the Apocalypse" which is newly out on DVD.

The brilliant comedy "Mean Girls" has a new 15th anniversary edition out and that is as good a reason as any to talk about what makes the film so successful even now, a decade and a half after its original release.  So, that's exactly what we do in this week's episode.
