Joel Murphy and Lars Periwinkle discuss the cult classic film The Room and James Franco’s new biopic about the making of that film, The Disaster Artist. They also tie director Tommy Wiseau’s bizarre vision into a discussion about the homogenization of Hollywood films and how no one makes weird mainstream movies anymore.
They also talk about Quentin Tarantino’s planned R-rated Star Trek film and the ever-evolving style of Martin Scorsese.
What film won Best Picture in 2003? Does anyone want an R-rated Tarantino Star Trek? How much of James Franco’s butt can you see in The Disaster Artist? The answers to these questions and more are on this week’s show.
This week’s music:
- Intro – “Giddy Up” by Tahuna Breaks
- End – “Leave My Nuts Alone” by Simon Panrucker
