Beastly, Rango, Black Death: CFQ Round Table Podast 2:9

Beastly (2011)

It’s a busy week at the Cinefantastique Round Table Podcast – the Podcast with a Sense of Wonder, with Lawrence French and Steve Biodrowski offering capsule comments on two new films in theatres – BEASTLY and RANGO – and also a capsule review of BLACK DEATH, currently available via Video on Demand before beginning limited engagements on Friday, March 11. BEASTLY is a TWILIGHT-esque modernization of the old “Beauty and the Beast” tale. RANGO is a computer-generated Western about a chameleon who makes a name for himself as a gunslinger. And BLACK DEATH is a historical horror story set during the plague, with notable similarities to the recent SEASON OF THE WITCH. All this, plus the usual insightful commentary regarding current events in the world of horror, fantasy and science fiction cinema, plus a round-up of approaching theatrical and home video releases.
