Hobo Radio 528 – Todd Phillips is here for the gangbang

Subscribe:

Todd Phillips was sitting on top of the world. His new film, Joker, was getting critical acclaim on the film festival circuit and was already being considered an Oscar contender. Then, for some reason, he decided to go on the attack; destroying all goodwill by attacking “PC culture” for pushing him out of comedy and into comic book homages to Martin Scorsese films.

Joel Murphy and Lars Periwinkle try to make sense of Todd Phillips disastrous press tour and take a close look at the clip he leaked to Jimmy Kimmel of Joker star Joaquin Phoenix yelling at the film’s cinematographer.

Why so serious, Todd Phillips? What major film franchises could have their rights revert back to the writers? Is Todd Phillips here for the gangbang? The answers to these questions and more are on this week’s show.

This week’s music:

  • Intro – “Giddy Up” by Tahuna Breaks
  • End – “Say Goodnight” by Mild Wild
