It’s time for Pedro’s bonus pick! He finally gets to talk about the 1994 action film, Speed. But is it any good? (Yes.) They also review the 2008 horror film Let the Right One In, Sarah’s favorite album Illinois by Sufjan Stevens, the Muse song Supermassive Black Hole and the Welsh detective series Hinterland. Enjoy!
AHHHHHHHHH! That’s The Immortals quoting their favorite actor, Brendan Fraser, in the classic(?) film The Mummy, Sarah’s bonus pick for this episode. They also review their previously scheduled picks of Blue Velvet, a Paul Weller album, a song by Beats International and a hit British sorta-soap. Get excited for a lot of Mummy talk!
If all The Immortals were in Europe, how long would it take before most of them would try to manipulate Pedro to commit crimes for them? That’s the dilemma in the middle of the Wim Wenders’ film The American Friend! It’s a Ripley novel adaptation from Patricia Highsmith starring Dennis Hopper and Bruno Ganz. After they finish their assassinations, they listen to R.E.M. and Chaka Khan and then Austin barely proves that Footballers’ Wives exists. Also plenty of Oscar reactions a week late! Get excited!
