With a prestigious career jam-packed with awards and plaudits, what dark secret could possibly lurk in the career of Meryl Streep? Join Joe and guests Liam Callander and Jeff Kennedy as they look at Streep’s work, her remarkable knack for being Oscar nominated and her penchant for different accents. Then their attention is turned to her part in 1989 “comedy” She Devil; a tale of betrayal, revenge and cream cakes. Just who is the She-Devil? Who’s channelling the aura of Don Johnson? And just how long a time period does this movie unfold over? Find out here in Episode 2 of Celluloid Skeletons.
Everyone has guilty secrets, embarrassing things we wish we’d never done. Well, like the dirty muck-rakers that we are, we’ve decided to start a podcast looking at the cringe-worthy, weird and plain forgotten films in the back catalogues of famous actors. Remember when Anthony Hopkins followed up his Oscar winning performance in The Silence of the Lambs with a part in a goofy sci-fi film co-starring Emilio Estevez and Mick Jagger? We do, and our new podcast Celluloid Skeletons is all about films like that.
This week, Martin and Lee try to avoid a Midge Ure lawsuit, discuss the week in movie news chronologically (!), Lee finds the worst word the internet ever made, they both wrap up Breaking Bad‘s “To’hajiilee” and end with some parting life advice that probably nobody will listen to.
This week Martin promises a James Spader sexy supercut, Lee tries to say kind words about Miyazaki’s retirement, they both wax poetic about the week in movie news before wrapping up the discussion with yet another Breaking Bad recap.
