Adonis Gonzalez, my cohost on A Nice Place to Visit and Game Over, Man!, is back on the show to discuss a trio of movies that have nothing to do with each other…or do they? Tune in to hear our conversation on Kevin Costner’s Oscar-Winning epic Dances With Wolves, John Sturges’ iconic western remake The Magnificent Seven, and Charles Burnett’s engrossing family drama To Sleep With Anger!

Next Week: Returning guests Rob Wilkinson and Anthony Battaglia are helping me close out the month of October by discussing (respectively) Joseph L. Mankiewicz’s All About Eve and Nicholas Ray’s Rebel Without A Cause!
I’ve never understood the outright hate for Dances with Wolves. I get that people are mad it beat Goodfellas, but you can’t deny it’s a pretty effective movie, especially for when it came out. Great discussion.
I can imagine how frustrating the BP upset must have been at the time, but it is rather pointless to fault the movie itself for that, and we were delighted to get to unpack it for all that it has to offer. Thanks for listening!
Agreed! Thank you for replying back!
I miss the days when you only did one movie per episode. By having as many as three, I feel like you don’t have enough time to really dig in on these films like back in the day. Could just be me, though.
There’ll be a lot more single-film episodes starting with the new year; the Pinocchio episode delayed the timeline of the show so much that a lot of them had to be bundled together in order to catch up to the present as fast as possible while getting to discuss everything we wanted to, and even then there were many that (sadly) had to be skipped over. I do enjoy getting to discuss multiple films in a single conversation, especially if they share an interesting connection, but it is great to get to sink our teeth into just one. Check out a podcast called The Cine-Files if you’re interested in that kind of detailed exploration 🙂 Hope you still like the show!
Gotcha, thank you for the response. Again, I have a feeling I’m the minority on this opinion, and it’s not as if the conversations themselves aren’t good of course. Please keep up the good work, I’m a big fan.
