Episode 30 – Austin Powers: International Man of Mystery vs. So I Married an Axe Murderer


This week, with the help of our “Journalism professor by day, TV reviewer by night” doctor friend, @saranetzley, we double-dip two of Mike Myers’ dual-role films.  First is the well-known and quoted British spy spoof.  The other is a cult classic that should be equally well-known and quoted, but somehow slipped through the cracks during its 1993 release. 

For at least two films and a great opening to the third, the Austin Powers films have delighted millions, been quoted often, and was a very popular Halloween costume in the late 90s.  So I Married an Axe Murderer is the Jan Brady of Mike Myers films.  Sandwiched between Wayne’s World and Austin Powers, SIManAM is the story of a beat poet who is terrified of marriage who might be dating Mrs. X – the lady who marries and kills her husbands.  You can argue that Jan eventually turned out to be the biggest catch of the three.  Will our panel agree SIManAM comes to the same conclusion?

Episode 29 – Oldboy


This fortnight, we are back with another movie to read!  This time, it’s Chan-wook Park’s 2003 Korean revenge thriller, Oldboy.  Jo suggested we discuss this film, so she comes back for the second straight show.  We are so glad she returned!

Oldboy gave us a lot to talk about.  We discuss revenge, justice, and guilt.  Is the protagonist a world-class villain, and is the protagonist really the antagonist?  Because this is fiction, we have fun with all these aspects.  As of June 2020, there are many free options to watch this wonderful film.  Take advantage and come and join us!

We are joined this week by Jo, a friendly ghost from MTN’s past to help us wade through the often ephemeral storylines, and persistently opaque meanings of this dense, playful dream world. No matter your experience or feelings towards art films, you will likely find a shared perspective within this episode.
