Movie Meltdown - Episode 313
This week we hang out at Gallery K after Adam Burke's comedy set and engage in a hardcore session of... Late Night Movie Talk. We kick things off with a little introduction to Adam, but very quickly we welcome in Carl and Dan from Gallery K, as we roll into an old-fashioned, round table, movie geek discussion.
It becomes a wide-ranging conversation that covers topics like... stand-up comedy, regional accents, George Lucas, David Letterman, animal cruelty in classic films, Kevin Smith, Michael Parks, Noah Baumbach, too much backstory, Bill Murray, nine college grads writing your material, Stanley Kubrick, saving your money for cockfighting, Tom Hanks, serials, tooth gap, antler rack museum, John Mayer, Justin Long, Lawrence of Arabia, the field Museum, late night monologues, Clerks, Greek archetypes, Steve Buscemi, podcasting movies, Dazed and Confused, The Miracle Worker, the psychedelic scene, verbal ticks, craft services on Apocalypse Now, Secret of the Incas, the war room, The 39 Steps, Inception, stand-up films, Brian De Palma, Paths of Glory, if you wanna fall down this rabbit hole - don't, focusing on objects, Let's build the rails before we go off them, The Old Man and the Sea, King of Comedy, Martin Scorsese, Samuel L.
