    You know, the trailers never sold me on Mad Max: Fury Road. Not a big fan of the original trilogy and the trailers just made it look like a huge shitshow. I finally went to see it as all the critics praised it and all the MRA goons hated it. The success of that film is all about how well the action flows which cannot really be sold by typical trailer editing and select money shots.

    re: Showtime shows, Dexter was great. The last few seasons petered out but it was one of the best shows on tv for most of its run (admittedly, simpler times). Homeland has become a joke but it was great in early seasons, got pretty bad for a while, then was pretty solid again this last season.

    Have you guys seen Babette’s Feast? Highly recommended, with some serious food lovin’.

    If one is making a list of food movies you would not want to leave off The Trip trilogy. Others that come to mind for me are Fantastic Mr. Fox, Vatel, Good Burger, and Microwave Massacre.

    Glad to hear someone talk about Dinner Rush, love that movie. And as a Chef and movie person this episode was a lot of fun to listen to.

    “La grande bouffe” is a masterpiece comparable to “Salò, or the 120 Days of Sodom”. Deeply disturbing while brilliantly acted (Mastroianni, Noiret) and directed (Ferreri). Highly recommended, if you have the stomach for it.
