For episode 2 of Bride of Monster Bracket we're looking at two films exploring the societal pressures and expectations placed on women, The Stepford Wives (2004) and Drag Me to Hell (2009). There's also robots and a lamia curse, so that's fun. Listen in to see which film moves on to round 2.
Welcome to a new world of gods and monsters, as we present the Bride of Monster Bracket. We'll be starting off our run of female-focused monster films with Alien (1979) and Colossal (2016). Only one will continue its reign of terror into round 2, tune in to find out which.
As our Bracket on a Boat finally comes to a close we wanted to highlight some fun swashbuckling films from our youth, Muppet Treasure Island (1996) and Hook (1991). Expect a nice pleasant discussion before we head into our next bracket.
The Bracket on a Boat may be over, but we have a couple of lifeboats prepared to discuss some more obscure nautical films. This week we'll be talking about The Life Aquatic with Steve Zissou (2004) and The Boat that Rocked (2009). Both of these are a bit more inline with the fell good summer aesthetic we wanted for the bracket, so we hope you enjoy them.
Our voyage is finally coming to an end. In the Bracket on a Boat final we will crown a winner, either The Hunt for Red October (1990) or Life of Pi (2012). Which best adheres to our ideas of what a boat movie should be? We also have a few announcements about our next projects so make sure to listen to the very end.
One last episode before the final. This week we have Jaws (1975) versus Life of Pi (2012), both films about large predators at sea. We also get out into the seaweeds with some discussion about the nature of film as an art-form. Listen and enjoy.
We've reached the semi-finals and only a few films remain. This week we're discussing The Hunt for Red October (1990) and The Poseidon Adventure (1972) and the winner goes on to our final round. Which will make it to port? Listen to find out.
This is our last stop for Round 2, only one of these films will make it back aboard. Will it be Life of Pi (2012) or Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Man's Chest (2003)? We've got a lot to discuss before our decision, including some controversies connected to the films, and even an entire secondary bracket.
