CLOUDY WITH A CHANCE OF MEATBALLS 2; WE ARE WHAT WE ARE; ALL THE BOYS LOVE MANDY LANE: CFQ Spotlight Podcast 4:38
The fellowship was broken for this week’s show: Cinefantastique Online’s Dan Persons decided to strike out on his own, braving a wilderness of ravenous, 3D foodstuffs to take in the week’s mainstream release, CLOUDY WITH A CHANCE OF MEATBALLS 2, while Steve Biodrowski delved into the hostile terrain of cult horror with the long-delayed slasher film, ALL THE BOYS LOVE MANDY LANE. Meanwhile, Lawrence French rendezvoused with Dan to consider the moody, cannibal remake, WE ARE WHAT WE ARE. In an intriguing rondo of capsule reviews, the relative values of flesh-eating humans vs. wild tacodiles vs. horny teen victims are explored, and, more importantly, we get a show out of three of the most disparate films possible.
Plus: A discussion on faithful remakes vs. innovative remakes; listener thoughts on THE WORLD’S END and THE WICKER MAN; and what’s coming to theaters this week.
