For the historic 50th episode of Missing Frames, Shawn is joined once more by Brad Gullickson of ITMODcast and Rest.In.Pictures Podcast to watch one of Brad's favorite movies: Big Trouble in Little China. Will Shawn embrace this film the same way Brad has, or will its zany blend of martial arts, action and humor be too much for him? Tune in to find out.
To celebrate the 50th anniversary of Stanley Kubrick's science-fiction masterpiece, Shawn sits down with his wife Sarah for her first ever viewing of 2001: A Space Odyssey. They discuss the film's legacy, what it all means (and whether it really matters if you know what it all means) and the difference between 'boring' and 'slow.'
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?
