Special Guest: Joshua Oppenheimer

• July 28th, 2015

Joshua Oppenheimer became one of the most important and fascinating documentary filmmakers in the world when The Act of Killing was unleashed in 2012 and 2013, illustrating not just the horrifying Indonesian genocide in the mid-1960s, but also the galling bravado of the murderers, who live their lives with absolute impunity and over the course of the film dramatized their monstrous acts by making their own film. Oppenheimer is back this year with The Look of Silence, a devastating follow-up in which the family member of one of the victims confronts the killers and their families, seeking some glimpse of recognition, and remorse.

The B-Movies Podcast is proud to welcome Joshua Oppenheimer onto the program, to illuminate the history of these shocking events and the fascinating story of how he came to make two of the most powerful documentaries you will ever see. In this incredible episode, Oppenheimer shares the origin of the high-concept behind The Act of Killing, the influence his films have had upon Indonesian culture, and the impact these films have had on his personal life.

Demon Knight Commentary Track

• July 19th, 2015

Tales from the Crypt was a pop culture phenomenon in the 1990s, but its wicked, ultraviolent and kinky stories are sadly absent in the 21st Century. This week, The B-Movies Podcast rages against the dying of the fright with a very special bonus episode. We gave our listeners the opportunity to force William Bibbiani and Witney Seibold to record a free downloadable commentary track for the film of their choosing, and our first winner Frank Farina chose the cult classic Tales from the Crypt Presents Demon Knight. Great choice, Frank. Challenge accepted. 

Bibbs and Witney will be taking more of your requests in the near future, but for they're cataloguing the history of Tales from the Crypt from the comics, to the movies, to the hit HBO series, to the cartoons, to the game show, to the soundtrack album, and back to the movies again in this very special commentary track for Demon Knight. Find out why Billy Zane is a god amongst mortals (in real life), where you can see the story of Demon Knight continue (sort of), why the best episode of Tales from the Crypt isn't a Tales from the Crypt episode at all, and a heck of a lot more by listening in, either as a standalone podcast or synched up with your copy of the film! 

Which of our hosts does the best Cryptkeeper impression? You can decide for yourself in The B-Moviest Podcast Commentary Track for Tales from the Crypt Presents Demon Knight! Subscribe to the show free on iTunes for more reviews, exclusive interviews and downloadable commentary tracks, follow us on Twitter at @BMoviesPodcast, and follow your hosts at @WilliamBibbiani and @WitneySeibold.

Ep. 230 - Trans Action!

• July 11th, 2015

William "Bibbs" Bibbiani is trapped at Comic-Con, forced, against his will, to photograph attractive women in geeky costumes, and talk to celebrities. And while the poor dope runs himself ragged, Witney Seibold is joined by the ample talents of Dave White (of Linoleum-Knife.com). The two of them chatter endlessly about movie theater etiquette, bid a farewell to Omar Sharif, and talk about how much they are indifferent to Spider-Man. They also review Minions and Self/Less.  

How amazing is Tangerine, and where can you go to visit the shooting locations? Why is Witney pleased at the existence of the Minions? How much does Dave love The Purge? And how does one behave when inconsiderate telephone users appear in the theater next to you? Dave White shouts them down is what.
