Join the Guilty Pleasures crew as we continue the conversation, hanging out after the show, shooting the shit, and talking about all our thoughts and feelings on this month's featured film that we couldn't fit into our regular, hour-long episode.
We had an amazing time recording our BAIT episode (if you missed it, don't forget to tune in for a killer conversation). On this after-show, we talk a little about the shark film you didn’t pick, MEG (though, it’s mostly just a Jason Statham love fest). For the MEG talk, you’ll want to dive in about the 30-minute mark.
Prior to that, we discuss movies and filmmakers we love that are problematic. Plus, we talk about the good, bad, and ugly when it comes to romantic comedies and teen dramedies, new and old. We also bemoan the disrespect for goths in films like BREAKFAST CLUB and THE FACULTY.
Towards the end of the show, you’ll get some big hints about what’s coming to future NO NOTES and GUILTY PLEASURES episodes. We wrap with an ode to perfect films and briefly chat about why we love horror so much.
