As we prepare for the 2022 Academy Awards, we talk about two genre films up for Best Picture: “Nightmare Alley” and “Dune”.
THIS EPISODE: “NIGHTMARE ALLEY” (2021) AND “DUNE” (2021)
For our last episode celebrating our one-year anniversary, we invited our first special guest on the show. We had so much fun that we’ve got another friend joining us to discuss the upcoming Oscars. A couple of genre-adjacent films are up for Best Picture, and we discuss what we thought about them, their chances for award recognition, and what their inclusion means for genre films. Join us as we explore two remakes and novel adaptations: NIGHTMARE ALLEY and DUNE. Will Casey complain (again!) that Marvel wasn’t better represented? Will he (again!) sh*t on high art? Unlike this year’s Oscar nominations, there may not be any surprises there. But what does our guest think? Is he Team Lover or Team Fighter? Tune in to find out!
Watch the trailer for Nightmare Alley.
