Movie Meltdown - Episode 293
Our not-so-annual tradition of getting “the Meltdown dysfunctional family” together for Thanksgiving continues in this episode where we have pizza, play with a puppy and talk about the 2003 film Pieces of April.
And as we decide which of us is the blackest sheep, we also mention… the first pancake, David Lynch, fast food in China, G. Gordon Liddy, M. Merde, Cosmopolis, About a Boy, cyanide in the seeds, Cousin Olivier, the cat jumps out and they all get murdered, the middle child, Sean Hayes, a lumpy backyard, quirky heart-warming, this old man shuffle, Windom Earle, Lurch-like, Singles, dealing with your family, eating lung, washing your underwear in the sink, Lost Highway, Sam Raimi, making a good impression, components of my family just hate one another, eating broken glass, Dan in Real Life, trying to explain gravy, Jesus eating roasted guinea pig, it may leave your stomach… but it never leaves your heart, a black hole of sound, Twin Peaks, it is sort of a forced thing that we do to ourselves, The Blood of the Beast, killing a guy in a bathroom, the Quirky indie thing, eating dog vs. cow, reliving your puppy childhood, Inland Empire, cuteness not withstanding, Holy Motors, this does not fit the tone of the rest of the film, The Odd Life of Timothy Green, it’s a noise we’ve never heard he make before, Mulholland Dr. and solving the Bermuda Triangle.
“Because that’s what the holidays are about is… not killing your family.”
