Episode 153: The More Things Change…The More Things Need Carlin
Erik Childress delves back into the latest in Blu-rays with Sergio Mims starting with New Criterion titles that take us from anniversary titles that feel all too relevant today to an Oscar-winning film that makes for an interesting post-Tarantino palette cleanser. Going over to Warner Bros. they are charmed by a pair of very different action heroes and Erik tries to convince Sergio to head back to Lego Land. Then after trips to Flicker Alley and Twilight Time, they put a button on everything by discussing 40 years of the great George Carlin and how much they miss him today.
