Elitist Bastards: Of Salt, The Fly and The Crying Game

In this week’s podcast, Xpress film critics Ken Hanke and Justin Souther: Dismiss Ramona and Beezus and noncommittally shrug off Salt; experience gross-out glee at The Fly; don’t reveal the secret of The Crying Game; and guess about the quality of soon-to-be-released flicks Dinner for Schmucks, The Kids Are Alright, Cats & Dogs: The Revenge of Kitty Galore and Charlie St. Cloud.

Podcast produced/“cohered” by Steve Shanafelt for MountainX.com. The theme music is “1832” by E. Lee. Podcast art by Jeremy Dylan. The Elitist Bastards podcast is also available on the iTunes store as a free download. Click here to join the Elitist Bastards Facebook fan page.

    Seriously Jeremy, these pictures are getting creepier every week. Keep up the good work, sir.

    Thank you very much, sir. It’s a real challenge to try and up the discomfort every week while still maintaining the simian factor.

    Perhaps Justin should get himself a collar and chain?

    Nah, he’d try to climb on my shoulder.

    For the record, Clint Eastwood won that year for [i]Unforgiven[/i].

    So, you were right!

    Every time I see this picture, I have to pause and wonder why Ken has a vulture on his shoulder.

    So, you were right!

    There was an excellent chance I would be, since the only Best Picture winners I can recall agreeing with are Annie Hall and Slumdog Millionaure.

    Ken, you look like an escapee from The Prisoner, 60’s version.

    Theoretically, it’s a Capuchin monkey, though I admit Justin’s head kind of overwhelms the simian.

    As long as it’s the 60s version, I’m good with that.
