RIP 30: Remembering Chadwick Boseman

September 22, 2020

Chadwick Aaron Boseman (1976 - 2020) was one of the brightest young talents in the business. He broke onto the scene unafraid of taking on the monumental tasks of portraying some of the most legendary larger than life heroes of black history. But it wasn't until Chadwick ascended the throne as the king of the MCU that he became an icon to the world.

RIP 29: Remembering Max Von Sydow

June 26, 2020

Carl Adolf von Sydow (1929 - 2020) was the legendary Swedish actor whose name was synonymous with the great Ingmar Bergman. But the stoic thespian's talents reached far beyond his homeland and found himself a pivotal actor supplying Hollywood with the tall, slender, European villain they so desperately desired. Max's career found him seeking the meaning of life with Bergman, playing God with Spielberg, and thwarting the Mackenzie Brothers.

March 13, 2020

Issur Danielovitch (1916 - 2020) was a legend of the screen if there ever was one. Growing up in poverty Izzy found his way out of the depression, changed his name to Kirk, and set out to make something of himself. Douglas was hungry to make it out on his own and instead of just becoming another star he became a titan of the industry. Kirk created some of the most memorable characters in front of the camera and fought some of the biggest battles behind it.

RIP 26: Remembering Carrie Fisher

RIP 26: Remembering Carrie Fisher

January 10, 2020

Carrie Frances Fisher (1956 - 2016) was the daughter of Hollywood royalty. After surviving one of Hollywood’s biggest scandals Carrie sought to make a name for herself and step out of the larger than life shadow of her celebrity mother. Their close but strained relationship and a personal battle with inner demons led her to a number of ups and downs throughout her career. But in 1977 she transformed into one of the most iconic cinematic characters ever put to screen.

On paper, Princess Leia was a mere damsel in distress but Carrie provided a strong and powerful presence to the character that would quickly transform her into a feminist icon for over 40 years. Her quick tongue and tumultuous relationships led her to be an inspirational and outspoken survivor of mental illness and drug abuse.

RIP 25: Remembering Robert Forster

RIP 25: Remembering Robert Forster

November 26, 2019

Robert Wallace Forster Jr (1941 - 2019) was an actor headed for big things. After kicking off his career on Broadway, Robert found his first gig on screen alongside Elizabeth Taylor, Marlon Brando, and getting career advice from John Huston. He would close out the 60s with Haskell Wexler’s critically acclaimed MEDIUM COOL. However, the next 25 years of his career would stall out with a string of forgetful projects with only a few gems along the way. It wasn’t until a fateful meeting with Quentin Tarantino in the mid 90s that career would find new life.

Aaron and Brad take a class on Journalism 101 in MEDIUM COOL, search for Ramon the elusive sewer killer in ALLIGATOR, take a listen to The Delfonics in JACKIE BROWN, and more!

RIP 24: Remembering Sid Haig

RIP 24: Remembering Sid Haig

October 23, 2019

Sidney Eddie Mosesian (1939 - 2019) was an often underutilized character actor with the talent, charm, and sarcasm of a leading man. His towering stature, big, bold features, and infectious laugh made him a perfect fit for Jack Hill's exploitation films of the 70s. Sid would solidify a prosperous and steady career on screen but this character actor for hire would eventually step away from acting feeling typecast as just another dimwitted heavy. However, directors like Quentin Tarantino and Rob Zombie had other plans. At the age of 60, Sid would find a whole new act to his storied career.

Aaron and Brad touch up their clown makeup as they meet the Merrye clan of SPIDER BABY, break out of the slammer in THE BIG BIRD CAGE, join the Firefly family in THE DEVIL'S REJECTS, and more!

September 17, 2019

Peter Henry Fonda (1940 - 2019) was an actor that defined the counterculture generation. Peter wasn’t just an artist trying to escape the looming shadow of his legendary father but an American trying to stick it to the man. Along his path to becoming a movie star Peter would team up with Dennis Hopper and finally find his way out of the confines of The Golden Age of Hollywood only to usher in The American New Wave.  

Aaron and Brad celebrate the life and times of Peter Fonda by growing their hair long and riding their choppers through America in EASY RIDER, blowing away some satanists in RIDE WITH THE DEVIL, getting busy with the bees in ULEE’S GOLD, and more!

Rutger Oelsen Hauer (1944 - 2019) was the iconic Dutch actor who made a name for himself in Europe before heading to Hollywood alongside director and frequent collaborator Paul Verhoeven (ROBOCOP).

July 12, 2019

Arlette Varda (1928 - 2019) better known as Agnès was a French filmmaker making movies from her own perspective in a male dominated industry. Her background in photography, a natural affection for more experimental art, and a spontaneous passion to tell a story led her becoming one of the major voices of the Left Bank Cinema and earning her the title of The Grandmother of The New Wave.
