Ep261: Fidget Spinners

Today, the Kicking the Seat Podcast and Keeping it Reel's David Fowlie uncover the secrets of Blade Runner 2049! Who's a replicant? Who's part of the deadly corporate conspiracy? Will anybody care?

Yes, this is an in-depth and very silly discussion of Denis Villeneuve's latest sci-fi extravaganza, so if you haven't seen it already, turn back now or be forever spoiled by torrents of relentless mockery and James Woods jokes!

Also, Ian reminds you to check out the Shortcut 100 Film Festival, which hits the Music Box Theatre this Sunday!

Episode 261 definitely dreams of electric sheep!

Ep259: Rob Zombie's Last Day of October

Today, the Kicking the Seat Podcast welcomes back Aaron Christensen of Horror 101 with Dr. A.C. to help kick off the annual Horror 101 "Scare-a-Thon"! Every day this month, the good doctor will watch as many fright flicks as he can manage in order to raise money for the American Women's Self Defense Organization and IMPACT Chicago!

To get in the spirit of the season, Ian and Aaron talk about Rob Zombie's 31, a crowd-funded slice of nastiness that takes viewers on a roller coaster ride of unique underground terrors--allegedly. As you'll hear, the guys appreciate what Zombie has achieved as an independent voice in genre filmmaking, while acknowledging that his bag of tricks is well frayed at the seams.

Also, Ian mentions the Shortcut 100 film festival, which takes over the Music Box Theatre on Sunday, and offers a few words about this particularly dark day.

Episode 259 hopes to re-light your Jack-o-lantern!

Also, Ian tells you about the third annual Movie Hooley Irish-American Film Festival opening this week at the Gene Siskel Film Center; shares his surprising take on the new Reese Witherspoon rom-com; and draws the line (sort of) between obsessive fandom and financial responsibility, thanks to a line of special-edition Madballs.
