Ep470: The Overlooked Novel

Today, the Kicking the Seat Podcast straps in for a new Shining-themed amusement park ride called Doctor Sleep! Keeping it Reel's David Fowlie and Emmanuel Noisette of Eman's Movie Reviews join Ian in the front car of a movie so loosely adapted from its source material it makes Ready Player One look like Sleepers!

Yes, in this unofficial "Page2Screen" episode, EMan and David help Ian see the good in Mike Flanagan's loud, cheap-scares-heavy knock off of a Stanley Kubrick classic--while Ian paints a picture of Stephen King's novel that sounds far smarter and more appetizing than Warner Bros' latest cash-grab ('cause it is).

There are spoilers ahead (for both the book and the movie), so do your homework before coming to play with us!

Episode 470 would like to report a "redrum"!

Ep469: Netflix is My Name!

Today, the Kicking the Seat Podcast and Keeping it Reel's David Fowlie talk about the shifting cinematic landscape with a look at two brand-new Netflix films, Dolemite is My Name and The Irishman!

Craig Brewer's biopic of blaxploitation icon Rudy Ray Moore debuted on the streaming service last week, and it's a powerful dramedy showcase for the likes of Eddie Murphy and Wesley Snipes.

Martin Scorsese's The Irishman will see a limited theatrical release this weekend before landing on Netflix at the end of the month. Robert DeNiro stars as a hitman who faces mortality, loneliness, and Jimmy Hoffa (Al Pacino) in a sprawling, three-and-a-half-hour crime epic.

Ian and David get deep into both films (i.e spoilers ahead), and discuss Netflix's evoluion from discs-in-the-mail service to Oscar-worthy studio.

Episode 469 belongs on the big screen!
