Cinema Eclectica 185 – The Crumbs of Grimsby

Cinema Eclectica 185 – The Crumbs of Grimsby

It was a dark and stormy night, which explains why we all stayed indoors to watch “The Ballad of Buster Scruggs” rather than going out to see the latest addition to the Potter-verse or whatever it’s called. Mark’s handling that one, so Rob and Graham are forced to check out the Coen brothers’ portmanteau Western.

That’s right, forced! Which film critic worth their salt would choose a film by the Coen Brothers over yet another addition to Harry Potter universe?

After that it’s Off the Shelf, which this week has Rob tackling an all-star British comedy from the director of The Stepford Wives with Indicator’s blu-ray release of “The Wrong Box”. It’s then time for Graham to settle down with the other half of equity in Robert Altman’s “Gosford Park”, which is available now from Arrow Academy.

Co-founder of The Geek Show Podcast Network. Chief Editor and Executive Producer of, and tangentially overburdened host/co-presenter of several shows on the network. When I'm not engaged in production, journalistic shenanigans or the quagmire that is media criticism I watch movies, interesting TV shows and anime, I also enjoy the arts (you know, classical music and stuff), write many, many things, play and collect a lot of video games, read lots of manga, comics and books, and generally enjoy wallowing in the mass of entertainment media like a hippo in mud. I can also cook.
