High and Low (Brow) – Episode 2
James and I return with yet another thrilling episode of High and Low (Brow). This episode we try out our third format in three episodes (two public and one in secret) as I list off several upcoming Twin Cities film events that will be coming up in the next month, while James gives a DVD spotlight review of Beat the Devil. These new additions to the show are a bit rough, but hopefully the kinks will get ironed out in future shows.
This episode James and I also discuss Gymkata and Survival Quest, the two films that make up our theme of The Most Dangerous Game, a film/book that is about humans being hunted by humans. It makes for an interesting discussion as Survival Quest is a lesser known film by the underrated director Don Coscarelli, known for his Phantasm series, Beastmaster and Bubba Ho-Tep, while Gymkata is widely considered one of the worst movies ever made. Will James turn up his nose at these films as he did with 5 Dolls for an August Moon? Or will we actually find some common ground?
And be sure to stick around to find out what we will be watching for our next episode (which we will record in just two short weeks) as the selections have to be heard to be believed!
One final note, we have discovered that the cause of the high treble from the previous podcast was due to a crappy mic. We weren’t able to get it swapped out for this episode, but we should have a suitable replacement in time for the next one. I’ve messed around with the audio a bit to try and compensate, but please bear with us if it just so happens to cause your ears to bleed.
Thanks for listening and hope you enjoy the show!
