CINEMA UNDER GLASS: ANIMAL ANTAGONIST continues for Las Películas Sábados Gigantes at The Cinemarijuana Theatre. This week, shit got raw, as we took a trip through the underbelly of animal anarchy as portrayed in Sam Fuller's "White Dog" (1982).
You just can't stop the Cinemarijuana Theatre! We're off and running with our NEWEST 'Cinema Under Glass' series, ANIMAL ANTAGONIST! That's right, it's time for nature to have a go at Mankind with movies where the animals are the Baddies! Tonight we kick things off right with Don Bluth's animated classic 'The Secret of Nimh' (1982). It's evil rats vs. a maternal mouse for control of the fitzgibbon's Farm, no holds barred!
It's another special BLACK HISTORY MONTH edition of Las Películas Sábados Gigantes at The Cinemarijuana Theatre. This time, we took a look at the racially charged family melodrama A Raisin in the Sun (1961), starring Sidney Poitier. What did we think of this cinematic reworking of an infamous stage production? Listen now and find out!
February is Black History Month in the U.S.A., so, in celebration of that fact, we thought it might be fun to take a look at a few important films by black filmmakers and actors. We kick things off with 1933's 'The Emperor Jones', starring one of the greatest black talents in history, Paul Robeson. So what did we think of this semi-forgotten adventure from the early days of sound? Listen and find out!
From Denmark, 2010's "Klown the Movie". Based on a sitcom of the same name, Klown follows the exploits of Casper and Frank (and an unexpected third member), as they take a canoe trip cross country, and get into a hell of a lot of trouble. However, much MORE importantly, this is where the Cinemarijuana Theatre first learned about that most wonderous of elixers: UNDERBERG!!
With our current installment of CINEMA UNDER GLASS winding down to a close, we re-examine a film that many of us had not seen in quite some time! From 1982, it's Steven Spielberg's "E.T. The Extra Terrestrial". I just hope we don't wake up on Mars or something surrounded by millions of the little squashy guys!
Tonight we check out a girl power actionfest as two BFFs team up to take down the bad guys and locate a stash of lost WWII Gold! It's a buffet of bullets, bikinis, buried treasure, and babes as we take a look at 1989's "Savage Beach"!
Our current 'Cinema under Glass' series continues with 1976's "All the President's Men", starring Robert Redford & Dustin Hoffman. This film takes an in depth look at the very FIRST time a scandal had the suffix "gate" added to the end of its name! We all know Woodward & Bernstein were great at digging up dirt, but how were they at being friends?!
