Episode 40 – The Ten Commandments

The Ten CommandmentsOn our latest episode, we explore the world of the Biblical epic via Cecil B DeMille’s Ten Commandments!  Charlton Heston is our guide as we explore a time of plagues, lust and burning bushes!  We are once again reminded of the awesomeness of Vincent Price and, finally, get to introduce Jena to Anne Baxter.  We also spend a little time talking about Exodus: Gods and Kings. Join us for this rollicking trip through the old testament complete with water turning to blood!

At the end of the episode, we claim our next episode will be Murder on the Orient Express.  That’s totally wrong.  It will be L.A. Confidential.

Episode 39 – House of Wax

House of WaxHaving recently watched Mystery of the Wax Museum, we needed to take the time to watch the more famous remake, House of Wax.  Once again we enjoy the screen presence of the great Vincent Price while we experience the birth of 3D!  We also run into Reel Education favorite Charles Bronson.

Our next episode will take a closer look at the biblical epic The Ten Commandments!

Episode 10 – The Abominable Dr. Phibes

The Abominable Dr. PhibesThis episode will air on the day after Halloween so we decided that it was time to show Jena a bizarre horror film starring Vicent Price.  Much like The Matrix, nobody can tell you what The Abominable Dr. Phibes is – you have to see it for yourself.  Jena was clearly still unsure what she’d seen when the movie was over and that reaction was just about perfect.  If you haven’t seen the movie yet – go ahead and listen to the episode.  We promised that there is no way to spoil the cinematic experience that is The Abominable Dr. Phibes!

Our next episode airs on the 15th of November and it will be about Jaques Tati’s Playtime!
