Mr. Peabody & Jodorowsky's Dune: Dossier 5:11.1

mr-peabody-sherman-compositie
The Dossier Fantastique podcast opens once again, revealing a treasure trove of details regarding recent horror, fantasy, and science fiction films. Lawerence French previews JODOROWSKY’S DUNE, the documentary about the unmade adaptation of Frank Herbert’s novel, opening in limited engagements on March 21. Steve Biodrowski reviews MR. PEABODY AND SHERMAN, the 3D animated hit from DreamWorks. Together, two-thirds of the Cinefantastique podcasting team (Dan Persons is on hiatus) look at what’s out on home video for Tuesday, March 18, including FROZEN, SAVING MR. BANKS, and DARK HOUSE, a new independent horror film playing limited theatrical engagements after debuting on video last week. Tobin Bell (SAW) stars for director Victor Salva (JEEPERS CREEPERS).
Stick around after the credits for the Black Hole Ultra-Lounge, the podcast’s weekly bonus feature in which conversation flows freely and sometimes randomly. This week, the epic debate: is the longer TV re-edit of DUNE (from which director David Lynch removed his name) superior to the shorter theatrical cut?

Cinefantastique’s Black Hole Ultra-Lounge Podcast returns from the grave, offering a colorful cornucopia of horror, fantasy, and science fiction news and reviews. Correspondents Dan Persons, Lawrence French, and Steve Biodrowski size up the new GODZILLA teaser trailer, examine the Oscar Academy’s finalists for Best Special Effects, and bid farewell to actor Peter O’Toole (most known for his great dramatic roles, though he did a handful of genre movies, too).
Next, Steve reviews THE DAY OF THE DOCTOR on DVD. Larry recounts the extended cut of THE HOBBIT: AN UNEXPECTED JOURNEY. Dan enthuses over the animated television show WANDER OVER YONDER. And we wrap up with a trip to the Borderland: reviewing the non-genre SAVING MR. BANKS, because it recounts the behind-the-scenes story of the making of PETER PAN, the animated fantasy classic from Walt Disney Pictures.
