On this week’s episode of the podcast, I’m celebrating a quintet of women horror directors whose work has blown me away recently. I’m talking Chelsea Stardust, Nia DaCosta, Danishka Esterhazy, Leigh Janiak and Jackie Kong!
Throughout the episode, I mentioned the following episodes:
For the record, I say towards the end of the episode that I think people should be able to do whatever they want. I meant to add the caveat “as long as it doesn’t hurt anyone else.” Unfortunately, too many people these days only believe in the first half of the sentiment and not the second.
I don’t know about you, but I’ve been watching a lot of Winter Olympics lately! That got my pop culture gears going, so I started putting together an episode about winter sports flicks. In the first part, I get into moments in other films and then discuss hockey and figure skating movies! Part 2 will cover a wide variety of ski and snowboarding movies!
Welcome to the landmark 50th episode of The High Five Podcast! With this one, I decided to celebrate one of the all-time greatest action-comedy filmmakers to ever do it: Jackie Chan! What started as a celebration of Jackie Chanuary with some friends turned into me watching a whole of the master’s movies with no intent on slowing down anytime soon! I tried choosing one of his films from each decade starting with the 70s and making my way all the way up to the 20s, but of course I added in a few extras along the way.
You can read my initial reviews of latter day Chan films like Chinese Zodiac and The Foreigner if you feel so inclined. I also reviewed the wonderful Bleeding Steel on Episode 28 of this very show.
You knew there had to be some clips, right?!
Also, for good measure, here’s the Typhoon hovercraft toy commercial I mentioned while talking about Rumble In The Bronx.
Want to give a listen to six and a half hours of my favorite late 90s/early 00s pop punk songs? Now, you can! I called it Four Minutes In Heaven because it made me giggle. I totally forgot that I also made a Weezer playlist called Throw Up The W.
You can still check out my old Angelfire page here. Sadly the Blue Note banner ad isn’t still around.
If you like music and/or comedy, you definitely need to watch this drum battle between Buddy Rich and Animal from The Muppet Show.
While you’re at it, here’s the 60 Minutes piece about Welcome 2 America and the Vault.
I did a search and found this 2012 post I did about discovering How Did This Get Made?!
