Episode 23 - Scorsese Gunn Battle

Thursday Aug 19, 2021

We go to the headlines this week and discuss the overblown feud between Martin Scorsese and James Gunn over the validity of Marvel films as cinema. Where is the line between art and commerce? Is Scorsese's nostalgic picture of cinema relevant today? Is Marvel a danger to the future of film, or a harmless amusement park ride?

Episode 19 - Vigilante Films

Thursday Jun 24, 2021

One of the most cathartic genres (when done correctly) is easily the vigilante film. But what separates vigilante justice from simple revenge? How are female vigilantes different from male vigilantes? And how does the constantly shifting opinion on law enforcement inform the morals surrounding these high-octane action adventures? We do our best to answer these questions and more when we discuss Rolling Thunder (1977), Promising Young Woman (2020), The Dark Knight (2008), Miss Meadows (2014), and many more. Spoiled in this episode: Miss Meadows Email us at boothwindow@gmail.com, and/or follow us on social media @theobveeus and @caitlinstow
