Join us every week for a trip into the weird and wonderful world of trailers. Whether it’s the first teaser for the latest instalment in your favourite franchise, an obscure preview for a strange indie darling, whether it’s good, bad, ugly or just plain weird – your favourite pop culture baristas are there to tell you what they think.
Remember 1994, when Peter Jackson became known to an audience much larger than aficionados of shlocky horror and bad taste (or indeed Bad Taste)? Julie certainly does, and her latest Six Damn Fine Degrees post takes us back to Heavenly Creatures and to the murder case that the film is based on.
Murder was also very much on everyone’s mind when Sam, Alan and Julie (yet again!) recorded our latest podcast on Dario Argento’s phantasmagoric films, continuing our Summer of Directors.
But wait, there’s more in store for you – albeit it may be less immediately soaked in the red stuff:
Matt: Borgen was that rare thing: a series about politics that was eminently watchable, not least because of the sublime Sidse Babett Knudsen. At the same time, it was very much the kind of series that started at its strongest and then became somewhat less good with every series, though it never descended to the same depths as, say, its fellow political drama House of Cards (talking about the BBC version here – I don’t think I saw more than one or two seasons of the Netflix reimagining). The trailer for Borgen – Power and Glory hasn’t exactly got me giddy, but hey, any reason to have Sidse appear in our living rooms, eh?
