Elitist Bastards: The Good, The Bad and the Perfunctory

In this week’s podcast: Xpress film critics Ken Hanke and Justin Souther discuss new films Toy Story 3, Mother And Child, Jonah Hex and The Good, the Bad, the Weird; get chatty about the merits of Brian De Palma’s classic musical horror parody The Phantom of the Paradise and the often-overlooked Francis Ford Coppola drama Tetro; and speculate on upcoming releases Grown Ups and Knight and Day.

Podcast produced/“cohered” by Steve Shanafelt for MountainX.com. The theme music is “1832” by E. Lee. The Elitist Bastards podcast is also available on the iTunes store as a free download.

  1. Sorry I wasn’t able to come through with a new piece of artwork for this edition – been run ragged in London and spare time has been taken up with film editing in my hotel room.

    The simian world weeps over this.

    Well, you get points for simian value, yes. I suppose it’s too much to hope that the sequel will be called A Firkin of Simians?
