The Cast of Cthulhu: H.P. Lovecraft’s Witch House
Battleship Pretension‘s David Bax returns almost two years after his first appearance to talk about yet another adaptation of “Dreams in the Witch House” (and also his latest podcast, The One Where I Met Your Mother and also his thoughts on NHL free agency). Basically everything from the production quality to narrative logic in Bobby Easley’s H.P. Lovecraft’s Witch House (based on the novel Push by Sapphire) is severely compromised but, gosh darnit, at least it feels like they’re trying. Sure, the ending muddles the entire journey and the story plays up too much Judeo-Christian mythology and the math literally adds up to nothing but at least they’re trying something beyond straight titillation.
Battleship Pretension is a film discussion show and a film review website founded by Tyler Smith and David Bax. Beginning in March 2007, Battleship Pretension the show (known to fans simply as “BP”) embodies the type of laidback, free-flowing conversations had by lovers of film around the world. Battleship Pretension the website is dedicated to being a destination for those seeking worthwhile opinions on current releases, be they foreign, independent, studio pictures, theatrical, home video releases, etc. From its meager beginnings in Los Angeles, Battleship Pretension has amassed a worldwide audience and readership. From Germany to Korea to Australia, people have tuned in to share in Tyler and David’s love of film. As Battleship Pretension’s following continues to grow, the purpose remains the same: Reach out to the international cinephile community, invite them to join in the discussion and perhaps even start one of their own.
