Movie Meltdown: Waking Doug Devine
This week we are joined by semi-regular cast member… and at this point, a member of the Meltdown family – DOUG JONES!! And this week Doug joins us for our Sofa Theater discussion of Waking Ned Devine.
And while we realize both the guest and the cast seem to crash through people’s boundaries, we also address… Count Orlok, The Cabinet of Dr. Caligari, Better Things, What We Do in the Shadows, the AFI awards, Guillermo del Toro, Star Trek: Discovery, Mira and Paul Sorvino, the Hallmark Channel, The Shape of Water, Christina Ricci, coming up with a caper, The Candy Shop, the tubby blue guys… with weird white wigs, Ann B. Davis, squeezing faces, movies with rubber monsters in them don’t often make it to a 13 nomination night at the Oscars, I’ve never seen a surge like this last year ever before, being a criminal mastermind, Mimic 3, you’re just not watching it right, it should inspire whatever you need that day, thriving in life, snitches get… thrown into the ocean, I’ll be your Joan Rivers, Falling Skies, Skin and Bones, you’re so creepy in that, The Office…meets Big Brother…meets Nosferatu, ten million per episode, the Morlocks and the Eloi, hooking up with fish people, I think there should be way more wendigo movies, false fangs, huggles and face-cups, my IMDb page does scroll down to 165 credits now, watching that telephone booth sail into the air, not one – but two naked septuagenarians on a motorcycle, he’s very intense to talk to, I’ll get me own bangers and mash, old crusty couple, shut up and take the payoff, marked for devouring, involuntary manslaughter, we’ll encase you in latex like every job you have, go-go-Doug-arms, creating matte shots off the original silent film, Beneath the Leaves, H. G. Wells and using fruity soaps!
Spoiler Alert: Full spoilers for Waking Ned Devine, so go watch the movie before you listen.
