JFD525: The Haunted House, Meshes of the Afternoon, Elvis Meets The Beatles
In our continuing attempts to address the shortening attention spans of our young listener base (all hyped up on zima malt beverages and rock & roll musics), it's another Short Films week here at Junk Food Dinner! And these are three of the shortest and filmiest things we've ever reviewed! Donloyd & listen now to hear our unprofessional opinions on...
The Haunted House, a 1921 Buster Keaton short where the poor guy has to deal not only with bank robbers & ghosts, but also a very sticky jar of glue. It's a comedy classic! But can Parker stay awake for the 21 minute runtime? Watch along here!
Meshes of the Afternoon, a 1943 Maya Deren short where the poor lady has to deal not only with mysterious keys and shattering mirrors, but a severe case of sofa-bound narcolepsy. It's a surrealist sensation! But can Parker stay awake for the 14 minute runtime? Watch along here!
Elvis Meets the Beatles, a 2000 John Michael McCarthy short where the titular characters perform the titular action. It's a third film! Or was it all a dream? Watch along here!All this plus a red dead redemption reappraisal, a sega bass fishing retrospective, Kevin's regrets on display, eurosexcrimes, a Kontroversy from Kentucky, the Church of Scientology does another murder, our weekly news plus Blu-ray Picks and even more!
