Sleepless in Seattle, You’ve Got Mail and Joe Versus the Volcano, Pt. 1 – GTGC #284

September 20th, 2018

Episode 284 is the first in a two part look at the Meg Ryan and Tom Hanks Romantic Comedy Trilogy: Joe Versus the Volcano, Sleepless in Seattle and You've Got Mail. We initially planned to only talk about Sleepless in Seattle then called an audible before recording. Similar to our Spider-Man Trilogy Two Parter, the first entry on the Tom Hanks and Meg Ryan trilogy is our review and thoughts on the individual films and how they work together as a trilogy. We then play our game by recounting our favorite moments from the three movies. We don't hit many rom-coms on the show, but this week we made a very fun exception. How do these films hold up? Tune in to find out. And tune in next week to here our full analysis on the three films.

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.
