Podcast Oct 21 – Halloween, First Man and Bad Times at the El Royale

It’s that spooky time of year – there’s another horror reboot, this one with the original star of 1978’s Halloween, Jamie Lee Curtis. She’s back to face her demons in the modern update, 2018’s Halloween.

The pair at Interjections also discuss the Neil Armstrong biopic First Man, starring Ryan Gosling as the intrepid astronaut during his fateful mission to the moon and the events leading up to it alongside his wife, played by Claire Foy.

Tristan brings up Netflix’s recent cult film Apostlefeaturing a wild-eyed Dan Stevens inserting himself onto an island hoping to rescue a girl kidnapped by a cult led by Michael Sheen.

Both boys took in the Tarantino-esque film Bad Times at the El Royale (also about cults), and dissect what may have gone wrong with Drew Goddard’s sophomore effort. The all-star cast features Chris Hemsworth, Jon Hamm and Jeff Bridges, along with breakout performance from Cynthia Erivo and Lewis Pullman.

Cory contemplates the riveting drama The Hate U Givestarring Amandla Stenberg, a girl caught between two didactic worlds that crash together in a fatal encounter. He also opines on the fourth version of A Star Is Bornwhich also happens to be Bradley Cooper’s directorial debut and a feature-film debut for Stefani Germanotta, much better known as Lady Gaga.

Cory also hints at the splendid performance Robert Redford presents in The Old Man and the Gun, which we’ll likely cover during next week’s podcast. All this and more, if you stop in and listen below (remember also to comment responsibly):
