Super Mario Bros. (1993) Analysis — GC #314

April 25th, 2019

It's a post-snapture episode of the GenreCast. We hope you enjoyed last week's journey into the multiverse, but this week we're back on Earth Prime as Dalton, Arthur and Dustin take up the ladies' challenge of Super Mario Bros. The 1993 film is often discussed as one of the worst movies of all time, and a terrible starting point for video game adaptations. The boys have a much more positive reaction, often going to bat for the film. This week, we examine the film's politics, Daisy's role, adapting video games and much more. Tune in to see how we expand your syllabus and let us know your thoughts on Super Mario Bros.

Captain Marvel (2019) Analysis — GC #313

April 18th, 2019

In a multiverse far away, your hosts Alexandra, Erin and Kirsten tackle the 21st entry in the MCU: Captain Marvel. With only days remaining before Avegers: Endgame, your fearless hosts tackle the biggest movie of the year, to this point. The GoodTrash crew were very unmotivated to see this one, considering its the TWENTY-FIRST FILM in the Marvel Cinematic Universe. The gang talks female friendship, how the film targets the wrong crowd, the problematic issues that arise in its attempted solutions, problems in the narrative, gaslighting and much, much more. Tune in now for this specially requested episode!

The Mummy (1999) Analysis — GC #312

April 11th, 2019

In Episode 312, the boys turn back the clock 20 years to talk 1999's The Mummy. The Brendan Fraser vehicle was a massive success spawning two different franchises. It also features Rachel Weisz in one of her first major roles—a great starting point for a wonderful career. Arthur, Dalton and Dustin have a great time breaking this one open. The Hollywood machine, consumerism and consumption, Brendan Fraser, movie franchises, homage and style are all featured talking points in this week's analysis of The Mummy. As always, we give you quick reviews and expand your syllabus with material to flesh out The Mummy. Tune in now!

Chinatown Analysis (Patreon Sponsored) — GC #311

April 4th, 2019

Episode 311 of the GenreCast is brought to you courtesy of Patreon sponsor Keithan S. Keithan usually chooses some fun foreign picks, but he's been on a Jack Nicholson kick and threw us a curveball. Following up on our Women's Appreciation Month Marathon, Keithan challenged us with the problematic Chinatown from Roman Polanski. Polanski is a lauded director, and convicted rapist who fled the states to avoid prison. Keithan had this all in mind, wanting us to explore on the issues inherent to Chinatown. We talk film noir, auteurism, separating art and artist, Polanski and much more. We also expand the syllabus with some great materials for you to chase down. Tune in now!
