Episode 155: My...Endless…Disney
The podcast only heard Sergio Mims’ thoughts on Avengers: Endgame in spirit when it first came out but Erik Childress has a lot more to say on the recent live-action remake of Aladdin that may surprise you. Adding to the Blu-ray discussion they agree on Godzilla: King of the Monsters; a film which may trigger a re-naming of the show. They get into the various sleazy aspects of new special editions of films by Gary Sherman, William Friedkin and Franco Zeffirelli but with many degrees of affection. Then finally discuss some new releases of classic Ealing comedies and the directorial debut of Bob Fosse.
