Elgin James recently sat down for an extended interview on The Playlist Podcast, where he talked about the massive changes that happened in Season 3 of “Mayans MC” and goes deep into his overall goals for the series now that co-creator Kurt Sutter is no longer involved. And since we also share a common love of punk, hardcore, and the straight edge …
 
The newest film iteration of MORTAL KOMBAT is a fighting fantasy with roots in the tradition of Asian martial arts movies, but with a pronounced supernatural component that pushes it deeper into the realm of the uncanny. That particular combination, along with the film’s outsider protagonist, put us in mind of John Carpenter’s BIG TROUBLE IN LITTLE…
 
In this May the Fourth episode of The Playlist Podcast, Charles, Mike, and Brian are once again joined by The Playlist Editor-in-Chief Rodrigo Perez to talk about “Star Wars.” More specifically, the guys talk about where the franchise is right now (seemingly at a crossroads) and what this means for the future. --- Send in a voice message: https://a…
 
The second half of our pairing looking at young women publicly testing the goodwill of their loved ones drops in on another awkward community function in the form of SHIVA BABY’s titular gathering. We’re joined again by film writer Jordan Hoffman to talk about Emma Seligman’s extraordinary debut feature and how it connects to Jonathan Demme’s RACHE…
 
John Woo’s unparalleled directing career is best known for blazing barrels, shadow selves and slow-motion “heroic bloodshed.” To celebrate the Hong Kong legend’s 75th birthday, we talk Woo's full arc with University of Houston film scholar Karen Fang. From there, we focus on a sweet spot in Woo’s oeuvre, when he maxed out his Hong Kong street opera…
 
In this interview, we speak with Stefano Sollima, who is probably best known as the director of “Sicario 2: Day of the Soldado,” about his work on “Without Remorse,” what he prefers realistic action to "John Wick"-style gun-fu, and the possibility of a greater Amazon Tom Clancyverse, with a potential John Krasinski appearance down the line. --- Sen…
 
In this spoiler-filled episode of The Playlist Podcast, director Kari Skogland talks about "The Falcon and the Winter Soldier," that new role for Anthony Mackie, the importance of Sebastian Stan’s Winter Soldier in Sam’s story, the political themes that are present, and of course, the recent news about “Captain America 4.” --- Send in a voice messa…
 
The new indie comedy SHIVA BABY’s focus on a young woman attending an obligatory family event and finding herself the center of attention reminded us of a similar cinematic predicament set at a very different sort of major life event: Jonathan Demme’s 2008 drama RACHEL GETTING MARRIED. Revisiting the film for this week’s pairing, along with our spe…
 
“The Falcon and the Winter Soldier” has ended its six-episode run, crowning a new Captain America and drastically changing the status quo for a number of Marvel characters. And in a new episode of The Playlist Podcast, we’re finally discussing Marvel Studios' latest Disney+ series, “The Falcon and the Winter Soldier.” --- Send in a voice message: h…
 
In this episode of The Playlist Podcast, we got a chance to speak with Eric Heisserer, the man behind Netflix's “Shadow & Bone,” as well as someone that has had his hands in a number of cinematic universes, including the failed Dark Universe and the current Valiant superhero film universe. And believe us, he knows a thing or two about quality world…
 
For action film fans, the name Joe Taslim is already iconic. In “Mortal Kombat,” Taslim brings his action movie skills to a highly anticipated, big-budget video game adaptation. In this episode of The Playlist Podcast, we speak to none other than Joe Taslim about “Mortal Kombat,” “The Raid” ten years later, and why he’s not quite sure a Hollywood r…
 
The new Bob Odenkirk-starring revenge thriller NOBODY could be read as commentary on the revenge thriller form, but that may be an overly generous reading — or it may just be because we’ve paired it this week with Steven Soderbergh’s THE LIMEY, which is much more overtly reflective about its fantasies of violence and retribution. After working thro…
 
Video games are incredibly difficult to adapt into films and TV series. So, with the latest attempt by a major studio to break the video game film curse coming next week, “Mortal Kombat,” this episode of The Playlist Podcast offers up some ideas for adaptations that should actually get made, including a “Grand Theft Auto” anthology series, a “Dick …
 
On this episode of The Playlist Podcast, Charles, Mike, and Brian spend some time talking films with Ben Wheatley, the writer-director of the new horror film, “In the Earth.” He talks about making a horror film during lockdown, why he thinks "The Meg 2" is going to be great, and what forced him to step away from the upcoming "Tomb Raider 2." --- Se…
 
The new NOBODY, starring Bob Odenkirk as an unlikely action star, is drawing on a long tradition of revenge movies, which means we had our pick of comparison points this week, but Steven Soderbergh’s 1999 film THE LIMEY struck us as particularly apt not just for the commentary it provides on the revenge narrative, but also for its focus on its prot…
 
If you don't know Henry Selick by name, you certainly know his puppets. The Stop Motion guru behind "The Nightmare Before Christmas" (1993), "James and the Giant Peach" (1996) and "Coraline" (2009) has been capturing children's imaginations—and perhaps lovingly scarring them, too—for 30 years. On today's show we're joined by sculptor and constant S…
 
In this episode of The Playlist Podcast, Charles, Mike, and Brian go down the list of every DC superhero film that is currently on the release schedule, in development, or previously discussed. This includes sequels for “Wonder Woman,” “Aquaman,” and “Shazam!” as well as brand-new franchises like “The Batman,” “Batgirl,” “Blue Beetle,” and various …
 
The new HBO documentary TINA touches briefly but memorably on the release of 1992’s WHAT’S LOVE GOT TO DO WITH IT, but it’s much more focused on providing a bird’s-eye view of Tina Turner’s entire career, beyond the years she spent in a creatively fruitful but abusive partnership with Ike Turner. Watching the two films together, as we did for this …
 
In this episode of The Playlist Podcast, Charles, Mike, and Brian speak with writer-director Tim Sutton about “Funny Face,” and how he aims to reclaim the superhero story for the common people, as well as the negative critical response to his previous feature, "Donnybrook," and what it's like making a Western with Machine Gun Kelly. --- Send in a v…
 
After years of building up these characters through multiple films in the new Monsterverse franchise, Legendary Pictures is finally ready to show you the payoff in “Godzilla vs. Kong.” But the real question is whether or not you should even bother watching the film? And in this episode of The Playlist Podcast, Charles, Mike, and Brian discuss that …
 
It’s rare that one of the films in a Next Picture Show pairing is directly addressed in the other film, but that’s the case with WHAT’S LOVE GOT TO DO WITH IT and the new documentary TINA, two films with distinctly different approaches tackling a common subject: the life of soul music legend Tina Turner. This week we zoom in on Tina through the len…
 
In this episode of The Playlist Podcast, we talk to Rachel Sennott, the breakout star of "Shiva Baby," from first-time writer-director Emma Seligman. Over the course of the interview, Sennott discusses “Shiva Baby,” how the film might be the scariest comedy of the year, why it’s great for bisexual representation, and how doing stand-up comedy via Z…
 
In this episode of The Playlist Podcast, director Ilya Naishuller stops by to talk about his new action film, “Nobody,” which stars Bob Odenkirk as a suburban dad that has been keeping a secret from his family about who he really is. And when a home burglary happens to his family, this timid dad unleashes the kickass beast within, leading to lots a…
 
Being able to make shameless creature thrills explode off of the screen takes a distinct eye and an unabashed imagination. Ever since Gareth Edwards roared into the monster genre with “Godzilla” back in 2014, every subsequent entry in Legendary’s MonsterVerse has felt like an effort to recapture that same magic. Luckily, by bringing in Adam Wingard…
 
Eddie Huang joins The Playlist Podcast to talk about his new film “Boogie,” which is currently in theaters and heading to VOD later this week. The writer-director clearly poured his heart and soul into the making of “Boogie,” and talked about the hard-hitting family relationships at the center of the film, as well as how his entire career has built…
 
Unlike the last unicorn in the eponymous 1982 animated film by Jules Bass and Arthur Rankin Jr., this week’s last-of-her-kind fantasy creature knows what happened to the rest of her kind, setting the new Disney Animation feature RAYA AND THE LAST DRAGON off on a quest narrative that takes a much different shape than THE LAST UNICORN. We’re joined o…
 
On this episode of The Playlist Podcast, Robert Kirkman stops by to discuss “Invincible,” how animation is easier than live-action for some comic book stories, an update on “The Walking Dead” films, his upcoming film with Lee Daniels, that "Dracula" re-imagining, and his thoughts on superhero storytelling in general. --- Send in a voice message: ht…
 
After four years of social media campaigning, Zack Snyder and his legion of fans are celebrating the release of the “Justice League” Director’s Cut, aka the Snyder Cut. Clocking in at four hours long, this is a superhero epic unlike anything else before it. However, that doesn’t necessarily mean it’s any good... --- Send in a voice message: https:/…
 
While the new RAYA AND THE LAST DRAGON shares far more with its Disney Animation brethren than anything made by Arthur Rankin Jr. and Jules Bass, those filmmakers’ 1982 animated adaptation of Peter S. Beagle’s THE LAST UNICORN shares RAYA’s interest in telling a story about humanity via the plight of a fantasy creature believed to be the last of it…
 
In the amnesia puzzler's pre-9/11 heyday, blank-slate protagonists from Christopher Nolan, David Lynch and Shane Black rewrote their own stories. In every case, their histories ended up rosier and nobler than the depraved violence just beneath the surfaces of "Memento" (2001), "Mulholland Drive" (2001) and "The Long Kiss Goodnight" (1996). So let's…
 
For years, the word “threequel” has sent shivers down the spines of film fans. A sequel is tough enough, but a sequel to a sequel? Hardly ever turns out great, right? Well, Michael B. Jordan is hoping to break that curse as the star and director(!) of “Creed III.” And to help, The Playlist Podcast is discusing three films that are some of the best …
 
Decades before he carried Batman's breakfast and launched a thousand Cockney impersonations, Michael Caine mostly played transgressors. In late-60s and early 70s films like ALFIE, GET CARTER, THE ITALIAN JOB and THE MAN WHO WOULD BE KING, Caine brought a streetwise intelligence to a gallery of anti-social rogues: philanderers, killers and coloniali…
 
Yes, Lee Isaac Chung’s new feature MINARI is a story that involves family farming and scarcity of water, but its connections to Claude Berri’s 1986 tragedy JEAN DE FLORETTE go beyond plot similarities and into deeper explorations of community and outsiders. After discussing our initial reactions to MINARI we dig into those connections, as well as h…
 
This week, on The Playlist Podcast, Frank Grillo joins Charles, Brian, and Mike to talk about “Boss Level,” his recipe for a quality action film, what’s going on with that remake of “The Raid,” why he's sad about not coming back to the Marvel Cinematic Universe, and much, much more. --- Send in a voice message: https://anchor.fm/theplaylist/message…
 
So, we already know that it was Agatha all along. And Wanda’s unchecked trauma and grief are the reasons behind the Hex and the key to fixing the problems of Westview. But with one episode left, how is “WandaVision” going to end? Well, that’s where The Playlist Podcast comes in to save the day. We don’t have any insider knowledge or anything, but w…
 
Lee Isaac Chung’s new MINARI centers on a family starting over in the country, a theme that got us thinking about French director Claude Berri’s 1986 film JEAN DE FLORETTE, and how its concerns of agrarian hardship in general and water scarcity in particular echo those in Chung’s film. In this half of the pairing we get into JEAN DE FLORETTE’s unsp…
 
At 70-years-old, filmmaker Sam Pollard has had a massive career spanning five decades. But it's arguably just getting its due in a major way and unlike never before (“The phone’s been ringing off the hook,” he said). Pollard— a director, editor, and producer— is an Oscar nominee (Spike Lee's “4 Little Girls” doc, which he co-produced and edited), h…
 
In a new episode of The Playlist Podcast, we talked to Craig Brewer, the director of “Coming 2 America,” about taking the reins of the huge sequel to "Coming to America." And trust us, the filmmaker is well aware of the hype surrounding his film and the worry that he will be responsible for ruining a classic film by adding a subpar sequel. He also …
 
On this episode of The Playlist Podcast, we speak to Jermaine Fowler about his breakout role in “Coming 2 America,” what it’s like stepping into one of the most anticipated comedy sequels of all time, why he’s really trying to get a ‘Fifth Element’ spinoff film in development, his love of Tim Burton shit, as he puts it. Needless to say, our convers…
 
Former actor Kasi Lemmons has charted her own cinematic path since tiring of "best friend" roles in mid-90s. The director of "Eve's Bayou" (1997), "Talk To Me" (2007), and "Harriet" (2019) has gradually cultivated a fascinating directorial career. To discuss this pioneering Black female filmmaker and versatile dramatist, we're thrilled to be joined…
 
In Chloe Zhao’s new NOMADLAND, Frances McDormand’s Fern “drops out of society” not by choice, unlike the yuppie couple at the center of Albert Brooks’ 1985 comedy LOST IN AMERICA, but she proves much more adept than they at surviving (perhaps even thriving?) outside the mainstream. This week we bring NOMADLAND’s view of life on the road into conver…
 
Action films from the ‘90s are an interesting breed. Some are glorious. Others are downright horrible. But, boy, oh boy, did studios sure love VR, pastel colors, and martial arts. And now that Hollywood has decided to go ahead and make an ill-advised sequel to “Face/Off,” the guys from The Playlist Podcast have a few ideas for films from the ‘90s t…
 
In a new interview with The Playlist Podcast, the director of the Nicolas Cage horror-comedy, “Willy’s Wonderland,” Kevin Lewis talks about his love of genre films, the mystique that surrounds Cage, and his recent near-death experience battling COVID. --- Send in a voice message: https://anchor.fm/theplaylist/message…
 
Chloe Zhao’s new feature NOMADLAND presents a “houseless” life on the road as a choice born half out of desperation and half out of curiosity about life outside the American mainstream, which called to mind the yuppie adventurers looking to “drop out of society” in Albert Brooks’ 1985 comedy LOST IN AMERICA. This week, Brooks’ film serves as the ca…
 
“Raya and the Last Dragon,” the upcoming action-adventure from Walt Disney Animation Studios, features set pieces and genre thrills that feel wholly unique among their 59 film animated catalog. Starring Kelly Marie Tran as the titular warrior, “Raya” is set in the mythical world of Kumandra, where humans and dragons once lived together in harmony. …
 
For many people, the name Cathy Yan automatically brings to mind “Birds of Prey.” That makes sense, considering for years, that is the only film that the young filmmaker has released. But you see, “Birds of Prey” isn’t her first film. No, that distinction belongs to the Sundance award-winning satire, “Dead Pigs,” which is finally getting distribute…
 
On Valentine's Day, "The Silence of the Lambs" celebrates 30 years of haunting imaginations and changing serial-killer cinema forever. On this week's Be Reel, Noah and Chance appreciate the many inimitable qualities of Jonathan Demme's 1991 classic, including its lack of genre fealty, its simultaneous intensity and restraint, and getting the best o…
 
Though Emerald Fennell has cited Mary Harron’s AMERICAN PSYCHO as one of the inspiration points for her buzzy debut feature PROMISING YOUNG WOMAN, there’s not a whole lot obviously linking the films in terms of protagonist, narrative, or even their respective satirical targets. But as we discuss in this week’s comparison, both woman-directed films …
 
This week, on The Playlist Podcast, we speak to Sam Levinson, the writer-director of “Malcolm & Marie,” as well as the creator of HBO’s award-winning “Euphoria,” about his new film, his hit show, and his legendary father, Barry Levinson. --- Send in a voice message: https://anchor.fm/theplaylist/message…
