Episode 158: Dietrich and Keaton and Korngold, Oh My!
Sergio Mims returns to catch up on the latest and greatest in Blu-rays with Erik Childress. They dive into some recent stuff from Lionsgate; splitting on a Sundance favorite, discussing the downward spiral of The Walking Dead, Stallone in 4K and Sergio’s issues with John Wick. Erik goes over why the Elton John biopic was superior to the Queen one. They also go deep into the archive to talk Marlene Dietrich, a Mad Rabbi and the immortality of Buster Keaton. They may even be a little room left for some opera. Yes, opera.
