Movie Meltdown - Episode 120

This week we return to the coffee shop for another edition of The Caffeinated Movie Geek and to one of our most popular segments - The Grind. This episode a listener asks: Does a celebrity's personal life (and occasionally, terrible actions) effect how you view them as an artist? An interesting question. So we address the overall idea and try to decide what is the dividing line and how far is too far?

And while inventing new and horrifying blends of coffee we bring up… Paul Bettany, Overboard, fur purse, Philip Seymour Hoffman naked, Halle Berry, Harmony Korine is on notice, James Dean, the new adventures of old Greg, Justified, Management, Christian Bale, MacBeth, Valkyrie, Jennifer Connelly, Paranormal Activity 2, The Disappearance of Alice Creed, R. Kelly, Charles Darwin, Jesco White, lowering your standards to make movies, Tom Cruise, Bono, having a funnel cake stand in your yard, Robert Duvall, Jon Bon Jovi, Katie Holmes, John Updike watched Overboard, Jason Lee, John Waters, a right-wing dwarf, Bob Dylan, put that in your fur purse, Michael Jackson, Vincent Gallo, Tina Fey, Pee Wee Herman, Scientology, pasta cup sizes, Mission: Impossible, Trash Humpers, Alec Baldwin, Ellen DeGeneres, Creation, Richard Gere, The Dancing Outlaw, Broadcast News, Steve Zahn is not bright, Miles Davis, Goldie’s peak, The Office, Charlie Sheen, Albert Brooks, Catherine Zeta-Jones, Sting, Shattered Glass, a baby monkey riding a pig, Woody Allen, Russell Crowe, Gangster Number One, romantic comedies, Devil‘s in the Elevator, Splice, Roman Polański and Google searches that get you in trouble.

Everybody has their skeletons in the closet I guess?”
