Elitist Bastards: Off-the-hook good movie reviews

In this week’s Elitist Bastards Go To The Movies podcast, Mountain Xpress film critics Ken Hanke and Justin Souther review newly released films The Green Hornet and The Dilemma. They also chat about classic horror flicks The Devil Commands and The Return of the Vampire (this week’s Thursday Horror Picture Show double feature) and the often-overlooked screwball comedy First Love (this week’s Asheville Film Society screening), and speculate about the quality of this week’s upcoming releases The Way Back and No Strings Attached.

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

  1. This sounds like a Nancy Meyers picture!
    My favourite quote about Nancy Meyers movies is Ken Levine’s assertion that ‘She writes trailers, then pads them out to two hours’.

    I’m always baffled at her apparent inability to come up with a title that’s even remotely interesting. These things all seem to start out as Untitled Nancy Meyers Project and the creativity is downhill from there. I think they should just release them as Undistinguished Nancy Meyers Movie and number them.

    Jeremy, you should know that I’ve gotten e-mails from people who don’t post praising your art work on this one.

    Aw, shucks.

    Aw, shucks nuthin’. Now you’ve got to do something even better.

    Dylan, I hope to God they pay you for these shoops.
