This week, Rhea and Destiny give you the Valerie Solanas-tinged, rambly basics, as this is another regulars episode! We discuss the surprising appeal of Vin Diesel, give out suggestions on what to do with your Junk Food Dinner t-shirt, and read some comments from friend of the show, Tracie Mauk!

Now I have only one thing left to do: nothing.

This week, Rhea and Destiny talk about the films of Quentin Tarantino, including the amazing DJANGO UNCHAINED! They rank their favorites, discuss how his work touches them on a personal level, and how overall, he’s a righteous dude. We also discuss webcomics, Class of 1984, and Rhea brings back Comic Book Corner! WARNING: There are all sorts of spoilers for Django and Tarantino’s other work, so LISTEN AT YOUR OWN RISK, HOMIE.
This week, Rhea and Destiny get real jolly with talk of their favorite holiday movies, songs, and television specials! We also discuss dark and weird computer games, the new Superman movie trailer, and some Hobbit feelings. We treat you to a couple of songs from the Skull Sketches musical Rhea co-wrote, and Destiny reveals her love of Christmas Carol adaptations. Also: A Christmas Story vs. National Lampoon’s Christmas Vacation.
After such a long hiatus, the internet herself begs the Badland Ladies to come back! They discuss all the movies watched while away, including Skyfall, Harold and Maude, and Lincoln. Rhea and Destiny also come to blows (almost) over Beyond the Black Rainbow and Black Sabbath (the Mario Bava movie, not the band!) After catching up,it’s time to go through every single movie directed by JOHN CARPENTER and give an opinion or two. Tell us how much you missed us: badlandgirls at gmail dot com!
Going to see this in the theater tomorrow, with live music by Alloy Orchestra. Really excited!
Sissy Spacek and Shelley Duvall
Three Women, directed by Robert Altman, is on the Netflix Instant (at least it is in the US) if you kids haven’t seen it yet.
This week, we’re getting real spooky as we kick off horror month! Rhea talks robot bees, takes back last week’s Terminator feelings, and discusses the fine manga of CLAMP. Destiny watches a horror film every day, questions the death of cinema, and is attacked by animals in her sleep. We also discuss pop culture-related fears from childhood, including mirrors, Are You Afraid of the Dark?, and a particular spooky vhs tape.
This week’s horror picks (subject to change). Feel free to message me with recommendations! I’m focusing on stuff that’s new to me and/or stuff I saw as a kid but barely remember now.
Monday: The Hills Have Eyes (1977, directed by Wes Craven)
Watched this last night. Was bored out of my gourd. I hear that the mid-aughts remake is much better, so I’ll be renting that before the month’s end.
Today: Pontypool (2008, directed by Bruce McDonald) I know nothing about this film, but it came with a strong recommendation. A Canadian zombie film!
Wednesday: The Devil’s Rejects (2005, directed by Rob Zombie)
I watched House of 1000 Corpses on Sunday and thought it was fucking great. Netflix is pretty reliable about sending discs on time, but if it doesn’t arrive, I’ll be forced to move everything down a day.
Thursday: Paranormal Activity 2 (2010, directed by Tod Williams)
I liked the first one. I have no idea what the consensus on the sequel is, though.
Friday: Phantasm II (1988, directed by Don Coscarelli)
Matt and I have decided to do our Friday movie nights at his place, and are planning on watching this series for the next couple of weeks. The first film used to scare the mess out of me as a kid. It still holds up quite well. I hear they become more and more bat-shit with each movie, so I’m looking forward to watching the next 3.
Saturday: Frankenweenie (2012, directed by Tim Burton)
I know Burton has been super hit-and-miss lately, but this looks pretty good. I especially like that he kept it black and white like the short film.
Sunday: Death Bed: The Bed That Eats (1977, directed by George Barry)
As made famous by the Patton Oswalt joke in Werewolves and Lollipops, this movie looks hilarious. Rhea and I are going to watch it together, so we’ll probably talk about it on an upcoming episode of Badland Girls.
