This past weekend I released the latest episode of the Movies You Love Podcast – if you’ve never listened to it I recommend you check it out. In the process of editing it I couldn’t help but think something.
I did what I normally did. I listened through, then started working on my intro, which I did a few times before I got it the way I wanted it, then I began adding all the extra noises that I feel makes it feel all pseudo-professional. At this point in time I started hunting down the trailer for Psycho – the film in question — and found myself entranced. I knew that Hitchcock did these elongated trailers where he would talk about the movie as opposed to showing a sizzle reel to entice the viewers. I believe I’d even seen a couple many years back.

However, while I have seen some non-Miyazaki Ghibli films (i.e. The Grave of the Fireflies & Whisper of the Heart) there are still a few of the films that they’ve produced that I’ve yet to check out, and I’m almost certain that they’re more than worth my time.

This time around on the podcast we take a child like journey with low cut dresses and gorilla style bouncers when toon and man collided in filmmaking with Who Framed Roger Rabbit with my guest Josh Spiegel, of Mousterpiece Cinema. So strap in for some falling anvils and any other silly cartoon reference I can think of that this film does a lot better than I can do writing and enjoy… Continue reading
