Filmwhys #28 Titanic and Dick Tracy
Apologies for the recent semi-expected hiatus while I was busy moving, but I’m back and I’ve got a doozy for you. Returning guest Jay Cluitt from Life vs. Film asks me why I haven’t seen Titanic, the second highest grossing film of all time! (PS, the only other film in the top 20 of all time that I haven’t seen is Catching Fire) It made well over a billion dollars, it was in theaters for over a year, and yet somehow I hadn’t seen this film until now. And in return, I ask him why he hasn’t seen Dick Tracy, the four color detective comic strip come to life via Warren Beatty and plenty of other recognizable character actors even though most of them are buried in heavy prosthesis in order to play the colorful villains in a brightly colored anti-noir movie that brings the comic strip to life.
Click here to listen, or as always you can listen and subscribe to the show through iTunes, Stitcher, or PodOmatic and as always I appreciate it if you give the show a like, thumbs up, and a review however you listen. I also have a new Filmwhys page in the main menu of this site where you can read the origins, find information on how to be a guest on the show, and also the show archives where the shows go to (eventually) after they are rotated off of the regular PodOmatic feed. Until next time, this has been Bubbawheat for Flights, Tights, and Movie Nights.
