This week we're looking at Children of Men, an expertly crafted dystopian drama that was underappreciated when it came out, but is painfully relevant today. Single shot car scene: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=QfBSncUspBk&has_verified=1&ab_channel=SharpXmedia Children of Men is a 2006 science fiction action-thriller film co-written and directed by Alfonso Cuarón. The screenplay, based on P. D. James' 1992 novel The Children of Men, was credited to five writers, with Clive Owen making uncredited contributions. The film takes place in 2027, when two decades of human infertility have left society on the brink of collapse. Asylum seekers seek sanctuary in the United Kingdom, where they are subjected to detention and refoulement by the government. Owen plays civil servant Theo Faron, who must help refugee Kee (Clare-Hope Ashitey) escape the chaos. Children of Men also stars Julianne Moore, Michael Caine, Chiwetel Ejiofor, Pam Ferris, and Charlie Hunnam.

In our final holiday episode of 2020, we discuss the humour, relationships, setting, child-like wonder, and creepiness that make the Finnish film Rare Exports something special.   Rare Exports: A Christmas Tale is a 2010 Finnish fantasy film written and directed by Jalmari Helander about people living near the Korvatunturi mountain who discover the secret behind Santa Claus.

In an all out love fest, we look at the NBC mockumentary comedy Parks and Recreation! After arguing about nose-blowing, our hosts finally agree on something as they analyze the characters, friendships, and optimism that make Parks & Rec great. Correction: The band is called Letters To Cleo, not Letters From Cleo, as we said.

The series aired on NBC from April 9, 2009, to February 24, 2015, for 125 episodes, over seven seasons. A special reunion episode aired on April 30, 2020.

In a good old-fashioned debate, we analyze Instant family, including the attempts at comedy, performances, and family diversity in cinema. Is this actually a heartwarming film, or just a good topic shrouded in bad jokes?         Instant Family is a 2018 American family comedy-drama starring Mark Wahlberg and Rose Byrne as parents who adopt three young children, played by Isabela Moner, Gustavo Escobar (Gustavo Quiroz), and Julianna Gamiz. Also starring Margo Martindale, Julie Hagerty, Tig Notaro, and Octavia Spencer, the film is directed by Sean Anders, who wrote the screenplay with John Morris, based in part on Anders' own experiences. Instant Family was released in the United States on November 16, 2018. It grossed over $120 million worldwide, and was called an "earnest, heartwarming comedy" by critics, who also praised the performances

The birth of the zombie genre, allegories for American race relations, cannibalism, women in horror, the death of the hope of the 1960’s, no wonder this turned into our longest episode ever! Plus our guests Film Rage, Flicks X-Rayed, and Drinking & Screaming talk about their favourite films inspired by Night of the Living Dead!   All The Horror: https://allthehorror18.wixsite.com/eventScares That Care: https://scaresthatcare.org/   Flicks X-Rayed: https://flicksxrayed.com/   Drinking & Screaming: https://www.drinkingandscreaming.com/   Film Rage: https://podcasts.apple.com/ca/podcast/film-rage/id1493735088   Pulgasari: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=eCKSR0JArUQ&ab_channel=SkyMarshalDienes   Night of the Living Dead is a 1968 American independent horror film written, directed, photographed and edited by George A. Romero, co-written by John Russo, and starring Duane Jones and Judith O'Dea. The story follows seven people who are trapped in a rural farmhouse in western Pennsylvania, which is under assault by an enlarging group of cannibalistic, undead corpses. The film was completed on a US$114,000 budget and shot outside Pittsburgh, where it had its theatrical premiere on October 1, 1968. The film grossed US$12 million domestically and US$18 million internationally, earning more than 250 times its budget. Night of the Living Dead has been regarded as a cult classic by film scholars and critics, despite being heavily criticized upon its release for its explicit gore. It eventually garnered critical acclaim and was selected in 1999 by the Library of Congress for preservation in the National Film Registry as a film deemed "culturally, historically, or aesthetically significant".[3][4][5] Night of the Living Dead led to five subsequent films between 1978 and 2009, also directed by Romero, and inspired several remakes; the most well-known remake was released in 1990, directed by Tom Savini.[4][6]
