Chad & Mark's Untitled Podcast #10 - Phantom of the Paradise

Post by Chad Peter » Fri Feb 10, 2017 11:38 am

Well, it finally happened. Mark and I broke the chain of movies that at least one of us has seen by watching "Phantom of the Paradise" - a movie that neither of us had seen. This is a film directed by the "great" Brian DePalma (although there's some debate how "great" his films are, a topic which consumes us for the majority of this podcast). "Phantom of the Paradise" can best be described as a film that soaked up the incredibly awful fashion & design styles of the early 70's and made my nightmare out of it. I don't know how else to describe it. This will be a good litmus test for whether or not Mark and I can hold your attention for a film that probably none of you will ever go out of your way to see. No clue how this has a 7.4/10 on imdb.

Releasing a few days early because I'll be out of town this weekend.

It's all good, gingers may not have souls but we do have a decent sense of humor and grasp on whether or not people are trying to be dicks about it. I was just funin'. I have been in a few scuffles just because someone didn't like the color of my hair and skin, I get it though, gingers are fucking asshats. (I can say that).

Oops, I listened to this podcast and the About Time podcast back to back and posted in the wrong one. I was referencing the comment in the other podcast about Domhnall Gleeson : "Gingers; trying to take over the universe." In any case, the post was in jest. I wasn't trying to shame anyone on their latent gingerphobia (see, it's still funny).

Now I need to go make a few calls and tell the Ginger Brotherhood that the "NP2K hates gingers!" protest rally is off. Man, I had signs and everything. :P

I think the high IMDB rating must be a result of brigading from Paul Williams megafans.
