August 2018 Lineup: Books on Screen Take Up the Film Shelf, Plus A Special Guest

Serg and Patrick get into literature with films based on books. Special guest indie comic book creator Mark Martinez ("Samuriachi," "Devil Mask") stops by to talk about John Boorman's "Excalibur." We also head out "On Her Majesty's Secret Service," venture "20,000 Leagues Under the Sea," and Criterion of the Month has us end up "Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas." Finally, due to Serg forgetting how calendars work (five Fridays in August, not four), we conquer the world of Canada in "Scott Pilgrim vs. the World."

EP. 96: "EXCALIBUR" W/ SPECIAL GUEST MARK MARTINEZ

"You are the son of Uther and Igrayne. You are King Arthur!"

Comic Creator Mark Martinez ("Samuriachi," "Devil Mask") stops by to join the hosts to pull the Arthurian legend from the stone in the form of 1981's "Excalibur." Listen as they get in an epic discussion about the parade of Irish accents, old school (and messed-up) misogyny, the unironic use of "O Fortuna," Boorman's insane production and, unfortnately, "Black Knight."

EP. 93: REVISITED - "(500) DAYS OF SUMMER"

"This is a story of boy meets girl, but you should know upfront, this is not a love story."

Film A Week Revisited returns with a trip to the Downtown LA world outside of the rinky-dink film vault with 2009's "(500) Days of Summer." Listen as we discuss realism of romance in this film, the soundtrack of the film, Joseph Gordon-Levitt's handsome nature and Zooey Deschanel's star-making performance.
