Even though it's officially November, Missing Frames managed to fit in one final Halloween movie. This time around Sarah Eastridge and Alexis Bethea show Shawn one of their favorite cinematic staples of the season: Hocus Pocus. Will Shawn enjoy Hocus Pocus, or is this one strictly drive by nostalgia? Tune in to find out.
In this episode of Missing Frames, John Mills and Matt Hansen join Shawn to discuss the Halloween franchise, specifically Halloween II (1981) and the new Halloween 're-quel.' Shawn, a fan of John Carpenter's original Halloween, has never seen any of the sequels. This gave him the unique experience of being able to watch David Gordon Green's new Halloween film the way it was intended to be seen: as a direct sequel to the original. Afterwards, he went back and watched the original Halloween II. Which film will emerge the victor?
It's October, which means time for horror movies. Missing Frames kicks things off by taking a look at the Tobe Hooper/Steven Spielberg classic Poltergeist. Shawn Eastridge is joined by first-time Missing Framer and Paste Magazine’s News Editor Scott Russell, who has never seen Poltergeist. Also returning to the show is Paste Magazine’s resident horror movie expert Jim Vorel.
Over Labor Day weekend on the eve of DragonCon, John Mills downed a few beers and joined Shawn Eastridge for a rambling discussion on Star Wars, Solo: A Star Wars Story and Ant-Man and the Wasp's lackluster box office performances and the problem with franchises in general. Also, John's drunk, so you won't want to miss this. (And we promise we'll get back to normal Missing Frames episodes soon. Shawn's a busy kid. Be nice.)
TECHNICAL NOTE: The impromptu nature of this stunning work of podcasting resulted in its being recorded on an iPhone. As a result, the audio quality is not stellar. Please bear with us and try to enjoy the beauty of the conversation, despite the technical snafus.
In this special Between Takes episode of Missing Frames, Darren Moser and his wonderful daughter Elizabeth take point to discuss Elizabeth's first ever viewing of The Empire Strikes Back.
