Lessons from the Screenplay creator Michael Tucker returns to Missing Frames to introduce Shawn to one of his all-time favorite films: David Fincher's The Curious Case of Benjamin Button. Despite being well received upon its release in 2008, Benjamin Button is considered something of an outlier in Fincher's filmography due to its whimsical and romantic subject matter. Because of this, the film has almost become something of a punchline, often dismissed as 'The Bad David Fincher Movie.' It's for this reason that Shawn has never gotten around to watching it. But does Benjamin Button really merit this reputation, or is it an under-appreciated gem that deserves film fans' respect?

Missing Frames celebrates its 90th episode with one of its strangest entries yet. Brad Gullickson returns to introduce Shawn to the first Tales from the Crypt cinematic effort Demon Knight, directed by Ernest Dickerson. Released in the early 90s, Demon Knight is far better than it has any right to be and features an incredible cast including the likes of William Sadler, Billy Zane (by his own admission, this is his personal favorite of his performances), Jada Pinkett Smith and Thomas Haden Church.
