After five weeks, it’s time for Austin and Eric to see what they learned. In one final discussion, the guys decide if Gene Kelly succeeds in old fashioned Hollywood escapism or he’s too distracting to be escapist. They also talk about some of the films they didn’t cover like On the Town and That’s Entertainment Part II. Also they (awkwardly) announce their next Five…
This Five has taken us from Best Picture to Razzie loser as we enter the magical world of Xanadu. It’s the typical story of a man influenced by a magical woman who may have awoken from a wall because he tore up a drawing. Along with their special guest Erin Oechsel, they determine what effectively creates a musical world and does the bad acting of the lead actually make Gene Kelly’s older performances better?
