How is it Friday again? I swear I had things back under control. But then other things decided to happen, and then there was this whole other other thing, and oh yeah we’re moving across town in exactly four weeks and so yes, things are still kind of wild.
Look, just pretend everything is normal. From your perspective it probably is! The latest episode of Someone Else’s Movie rolled out right on time, after all, with Emma Hunter (of The Beaverton, Mary Goes Round and three seasons of Moonshine) tackling her wild love for Penny Marshall’s original 1992 comedy A League of Their Own; the only downside to the episode is that the stupid Zoom filter muted her near-hysterical laughter at a throwaway Steel Magnolias joke. But everything else stays in.
The show’s where it always is: You can find it on Apple Podcasts, Google Play, Stitcher and/or Spotify, or download the episode directly from the web. And then go watch the Amazon series, which has some structural issues but is still very, very good. Plus, Kelly McCormack rules.
Also: The publication schedule for Shiny Things has slowed to once a week for the next little while, but it’s still rolling; last week was all about the new-release shelf, with reviews of Renfield, Scream VI and Evil Dead Rise, and this week I’ll be checking out a half-dozen catalogue titles — most of them new to Blu — from Australia’s ever-surprising Imprint line. Subscribe, wouldja? Knowledge is power, and all that.
Okay, back to figuring out exactly how many Blu-rays I own, in case you thought programming a film festival was a challenge.
