Originally Aired: 11/23/18 – Our review of Ralph Breaks the Internet. We also talk with director Mick Garris and director Corey Stanton.
We play Mr. Green’s sit down interview with the one and only Mick Garris. A true master of horror, they talk about his latest film, Nightmare Cinema, a horror anthology he made with a host of amazing international directors. There’s also talk of his podcast, Post Mortem. Mick Garris was born in Santa Monica, California. He is known for his adaptations of Stephen King stories. Garris won a 1986 Edgar Award for an episode he wrote for the Steven Spielberg-produced television series Amazing Stories. Mick directed the FEARnet episode Post Mortem. He contributes to the web series Trailers From Hell. Garris was also the co-screenwriter and executive producer of the Disney movie Hocus Pocus. He also directed the miniseries adaption of Stephen King’s novel Bag of Bones and the documentary film Pure in Heart: The Life and Legacy of Lon Chaney Jr. Garris will also appear in cameo roles in his films.
Our review of Ralph Breaks The Internet! starring John C. Reilly, Sarah Silverman and Gal Gadot. Video game bad guy Ralph and fellow misfit Vanellope von Schweetz must risk it all by traveling to the World Wide Web in search of a replacement part to save Vanellope’s video game, “Sugar Rush.” In way over their heads, Ralph and Vanellope rely on the citizens of the internet — the netizens — to help navigate their way, including an entrepreneur named Yesss, who is the head algorithm and the heart and soul of trend-making site BuzzzTube.
We also play Andrew’s interview with filmmaker Corey Stanton about his first feature film, Robbery. The movie stars Art Hindle and focuses on robbery where the getaway driver is suffering from dementia. Corey Stanton hails from Toronto, Ontario, Canada. He holds a Bachelor of Science (B.Sc.) from York University, and in May 2017, he graduated from medical school at the University of Ottawa, earning his Doctorate in Medicine (M.D.). In support of his lifelong dream of filmmaking, Corey has chosen to pursue his passions for directing, writing, and producing.
