Cinema Eclectica 197 – The Mean Streets of Micheal Portillo

Cinema Eclectica 197 – The Mean Streets of Micheal Portillo

This week, Andrew, Mick and Rob witness the birth of … (hang on because we’re pretty sure we can do that trailer thing in text) … a/ HER \o with “Captain Marvel”. As far as we’re concerned Brie Larson has always been our captain, but what about the rest of the film? Mark is also here for a look at how the actual ’90s treated women in superhero movies.

Apres Marvel it’s Off the Shelf, with Andrew finding the unexpected Fritz Lang-Michael Portillo link in Eureka’s Blu-Ray release of “Human Desire”, Rob getting into the carnival spirit of Lionsgate’s “Hell Fest”, and Mick unexpectedly finding an explanation of Brexit in Screenbound’s new British Gothic horror “Crucible of the Vampire”. It’s almost too much fun!

Don’t worry. We’ll correct that next week.

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.
