GTGC #282 Revenge of the Green Dragons

September 7th, 2018

We keep the Asian-cinema going this week with a look at a film distributed by wunderkind studio, A24. In recent years, A24 has become the new Miramax, boasting a near flawless record of critically-acclaimed indie darings. They made kicked off with a bang, dropping the cult hit Spring Breakers. But has their success and praise always been deserving? We go back to 2014, the second year of A24, and look at the 15th movie they distributed in that short time span, Revenge of the Green Dragons. 


GTGC #281 Fallen Angels

September 4th, 2018

Welcome to a special edition of the GoodTrash GenreCast. On this week's show, we have a patreon-sponsored movie. Our patreon supporter, Keithan, got to set the programming for this week, and he stayed mostly true to his roots with this pick. He sets us up with the kinetic, high-energy Fallen Angels from director Wong Kar-Wai. Fallen Angels is a dreamlike piece that is more experience than story, so is it worth your time? Tune in and find out.


GTGC #280 The Snowman

August 24th, 2018

With our Growing Up in Summer marathon behind us, we decide to move on to bigger and brighter things... Or, something like that. If nothing else, we giggle. A lot. Because, we return to our regularly schedule program with what many have called the worst movie of 2017, The Snowman.


GTGC #279 Charlie Bartlett

August 17th, 2018

Across the country, schools are getting back in session. And with that, summer is unofficially over. Which means, the Growing Up in Summer marathon must come to an end. And we decided to go with a Dalton and Arthur favorite, Charlie Bartlett. They both love it, but will Dustin hold it in the same regard?

In a twist, Dalton was unable to make it to this week's show! But, he sent his thoughts in for our review and game.
