Cinemaholics Podcast #110 – Dumbo, The Beach Bum

The inmates are running the asylum this week as Jon is absent for mysterious reasons and Will takes over the show to ramble about Danny DeVito, Sad Clowns, and his enemy list with special guest Cory Woodroof! Later in the show, Will is high on his own supply — i.e. the sound of his own voice — as he spews more nonsense about Harmony Korine in a prolonged, in-depth conversation about The Beach Bum, starring a far-out Matthew McConaughey. All this and more as fans begin to get worried about Jon’s sudden disappearance.

  1. I find it quite suspicious Jon is absent so soon after announcing on Twitter he’s where they shot the film *Us.*

  2. It’s a shame the new Dumbo doesn’t add up to much. It had the potential to be the rare Disney classic worth reexploring, if only for the original’s glaring shabbiness. And with Tim Burton at the helm, I don’t know I expected a little bit more here. It kind of felt like the idea of Dreamland itself: it’s gorgeously realized as a film with good ideas and moments of wonder, but none of it fits together, and by the end it all just goes up in flames.

  3. That scene where Dumbo is watching the Pink Elephants really is a delight. I was just as captivated.
