What started as an episode focused exclusively on The Godfather: Part II evolved to encompass the entire Godfather Trilogy. Sarah joins Shawn to discuss her first viewing of all three Godfather films, including a review of Francis Ford Coppola’s new cut of The Godfather: Part III. They discuss The Godfather's status as 'The Greatest Film of All Time,' the ongoing debate of Part I vs. Part II and determine whether or not Coppola's new The Godfather: Part III cut redeems the film.
Merry Christmas, Missing Framers! Having just watched Black Christmas for the first time, it seemed only fair for Shawn to head to the other end of the color spectrum for his first watch of White Christmas. His wife Sarah grew up loving the film, but will it hold the same appeal for someone who’s never seen it before?
On this Between Takes episode of Missing Frames, Shawn chats with filmmaker Evan Kidd about his new movie Panda Bear It, which is now streaming on Amazon. They discuss the film’s production, the life of an independent filmmaker, how Evan got started and his ‘do it yourself’ attitude. Make sure to check out Evan’s YouTube channel for some of his other work too.
As we move into the holiday season, Shawn joins forces with John Mills and Richie Pepio to discuss one of John’s favorite horror/Christmas films, the cult classic Black Christmas. Directed by Bob Clark (yes, the same Bob Clark who directed A Christmas Story), Black Christmas has developed a reputation as one of the seminal films in the slasher genre. But is that reputation merited?
Happy Thanksgiving! To celebrate the occasion, Brad Gullickson and Aaron Prescott of the Rest.In.Pictures Podcast joined Shawn for a rewatch of the ENTIRE Rocky franchise, including the Creed films. Join the boys for an epic conversation about the series' many highs and its confounding lows and why they think the Rocky franchise still holds up so well today.
