Hi. I'm Em. I love movies. I also talk a lot. A podcast was therefore inevitable... Join me on my journey through the history and legacy of movies you know, and movies you don't.
Alien vs. Predator & Aliens vs. Predator: RequiemThat Thing You Do!
1, 2, 1, 2, 3, 4.... Everyone's favourite movie uncle Tom Hanks isn't as known for his directorial or screenwriting career, as he is for his many Oscar-winning acting roles. That Thing You Do! was his first foray into both directing and writing, and boy does he knock it out of the park with this. It's a charming, sweet, nostalgic tale of Erie, PA teenagers Guy, Jimmy, Lenny and Tobias (the retrospectively named bass player!). They are the Oneders, and they enter a talent competition with a ballad written by Jimmy and Lenny, but that replacement drummer Guy ups the tempo on, causing everyone to want to dance along. The Oneders, renamed The Wonders, along with Jimmy's girlfriend Faye, go on a whirlwind of musical success, but the music industry is not a forgiving master, and like many real life bands, the Wonders become one-hit wonders. It could easily be a cautionary tale, but it's just so joyous and charming, invoking an era of timelessness, recalling the bygone days of Americana, the British Invasion that started with The Beatles, as well as the politics of the music industry, with an earworm of a theme song that might even be better than the theme song of this podcast. This was a passion project for Tom Hanks, and you can tell. It oozes careful thought, and the level of behind the scenes talent working on this movie belies Hanks' inexperience behind the screen. Everything about this movie is, excuse the pun, wonderful. Liv Tyler has beautiful hair, and RIP Adam Schlesinger. I would love to hear your thoughts on That Thing You Do! GET IN TOUCH....

Anchorman: The Legend of Ron Burgundy  (ft Nick from Nikoli's Kitchen)
Featuring five-time award winning podcaster Nicholas Haskins..... and Tits McGee. Actually, it's me, Em, Tits McGee is on vacation. Joining me is the Ron Burgundy of podcasting. A man who has many leather bound books and whose apartment smells of rich mahogany, a man who can play jazz flute like no other - Nicholas Haskins of the podcast Nikoli's Kitchen. Anchorman: The Legend of Ron Burgundy, if not a movie everyone's seen, is definitely a movie everyone has quoted. The lexicon of Anchorman still holds true, but not many people know that Ron Burgundy and Veronica Corningstone were loosely based on real news anchors: Mort Crim and Jessica Savitch. Savitch in particular was a trailblazer for women in news, starting as a diversity hire and becoming the station's first female reporter and one of the first women to anchor an evening network news broadcast. Sixty percent of the time, it’s a movie that works every time, because while the zeitgeist surrounding the movie still holds up, the movie itself (especially in the light of modern sensibilities and the #MeToo Movement) really kinda doesn't. This is despite the fact it was a radical re-think behind scripted comedy, and really one of the first of the 2000s era improvised Judd Apatow bromantic comedies. Verbal Diorama, in German though, does actually mean "whale's vagina". Joining me to discuss Anchorman is Nick Haskins, host of the podcast https://nikoliskitchen.com/ (Nikoli's Kitchen) and creator of https://allmylinks.com/livestreamforthecure (Livestream for the Cure). He's the best of men and I'm delighted that he not only joined me for this episode, but he will be returning in future, too. You can follow his soothing honey vocals at https://twitter.com/nikoliskitchen (@NikolisKitchen) on Twitter, and listen out for me kicking off Season 3 of Nikoli's Kitchen very soon!

Romy and Michele's High School Reunion
I can't believe how cute this episode is! On the surface, Romy and Michele's High School Reunion is a very simple premise. Two friends, happy with their lot in life, suddenly realise that maybe their post-high school existence isn't as brilliant as they first thought. Car dealership cashier Romy White and unemployed fashionista Michele Weinberger decide to go to their ten-year high school reunion AND pose as successful businesswomen to impress their graduating class. Their ruse? They invented Post-its! It's a '90s pop culture bubble of a movie, but it's also more than it's fluffy exterior might suggest. It really is all about the power of friendship, and that success is measured on your own terms. To some, success might be marriage and children, to others it might be writing for Vogue or becoming a billionaire entrepreneur. To Romy and Michele, success is being themselves, with each other. I would love to hear your thoughts on Romy and Michele's High School Reunion! GET IN TOUCH....

GoldenEye
You know the name. You know the number. He has a licence to kill, he likes his vodka martinis shaken, not stirred. He's a sexist misogynist dinosaur, a relic of the Cold War.... And then, along came GoldenEye. Propelling James Bond into the post-Cold War, post-fall of the Soviet Union and the Berlin Wall, and a technologically advanced 1995. It had been six years since the previous Timothy Dalton Bond, and Pierce Brosnan's interpretation feels worlds, and decades, away from Dalton's. GoldenEye was the first James Bond movie to not take reference from any of Ian Fleming's original novels or short stories, however instead is a direct homage to Fleming himself, and his work during the Second World War. This was the millennial’s Bond, and while Pierce Brosnan’s career as Bond didn’t quite land the way this movie took off, Brosnan would create the template for a more modern James Bond going forward and leave a lasting legacy in the franchise that has so far remained unmatched. Not to mention, that N64 game is cracking! For England! I would love to hear your thoughts on GoldenEye! GET IN TOUCH....

Buffy the Vampire Slayer (1992)Jennifer's Body (ft Helen O'Hara from Empire)
You could say Jennifer's Body was wildly misunderstood on its release in 2009. Just seen as yet another titillating teen horror capitalising on the sexuality of its lead actor Megan Fox, and heralded as neither funny nor scary; the Diablo Cody-penned, Karyn Kusama-directed, horror-comedy seemed to be destined for the DVD bargain bin.... And then, in recent years, the tide has turned because now people seem to not only understand it, but appreciate it. Its commentary on female relationships, society's pressure on women and, more recently, the #MeToo movement highlighting sexual harassment and abuse in the media, and the commodification of women's bodies by powerful men, Jennifer's Body is now seen as a feminist cult horror and has been retrospectively reappraised. (TW for discussions of rape, sexual abuse and sexual harassment, specifically related to the Harvey Weinstein case) Joining me to discuss Jennifer's Body is Helen O'Hara, editor-at-large of https://www.empireonline.com/ (Empire), co-host of the https://podcasts.apple.com/gb/podcast/the-empire-film-podcast/id507987292 (Empire Film Podcast), author of https://www.amazon.co.uk/Women-Hollywood-Fall-Rise-Film/dp/1472144430/ref=sr_1_1?crid=Z0HPAYBN6614&dchild=1&keywords=women+vs+hollywood&qid=1635255474&sprefix=women+vs+hol%2Caps%2C170&sr=8-1 (Women vs Hollywood: The Fall and Rise of Women in Film) and host of the podcast https://podcasts.apple.com/gb/podcast/women-vs-hollywood-with-helen-ohara/id1540573727 (Women vs Hollywood). It was amazing and fascinating to chat to Helen about this movie, and I'd highly recommend her book! You can find her https://twitter.com/HelenLOHara (@HelenLOHara) on Twitter.

Prometheus & Alien: CovenantThe Addams Family (1991)
They're creepy and they're kooky, mysterious and spooky, they're altogether ooky, and they're finally on Verbal Diorama. **click click** The Addams Family, based on Charles Addams' comic strips and the TV show that preceded it, might be a fun family Halloween movie, but the behind-the-scenes troubles for this production are so plentiful that it's a miracle that The Addams Family not only exists, but is as good as it is. From fainting directors, to quitting cinematographers, the sale of the movie during production and rights issues that would plague the movie's release in certain countries on DVD 'til 2013, The Addams Family is like a swan - graceful and serene above the water, thrashing about below. Not that you can tell from the movie of course; even the visual effects still hold up 30 years later. It's perfectly cast too, with actors that still define the roles - Anjelica Huston, the late Raúl Juliá and Christina Ricci - The Addams Family is a delightfully macabre Halloween movie that the whole family can enjoy, and is complimented by a sequel that in many ways is better than the original, but that's for a future episode. Let's not talk about Addams Family Reunion though..... I would love to hear your thoughts on The Addams Family! GET IN TOUCH....

Bram Stoker's Dracula
Are we ready to talk about Keanu's best role in cinema? Ok, so it might not be exactly that, but I have a LOT of love for Francis Ford Coppola's lavish, sublime and gorgeous adaptation of Bram Stoker's Dracula. So much so that I don't even mind Keanu's stilted performance - it's no way as bad as many say it is, although that might be my bias shining through. It's a visual treat for the eyes, with stunning costume design by first-time costume designer Eiko Ishioka and incredibly practical in-camera special effects, headed by first-time visual effects director Roman Coppola (son of Francis Ford Coppola), as well as an unforgettable lead performance by the one and only Gary Oldman as Count Dracula; an icon of literature, TV and cinema for almost 100 years. This movie showed us that love, lust, sexual desire and terror are not mutually exclusive, and Coppola's vision would not only give us the only Academy Award-winning adaptation of the Dracula story, but also shape the way vampires (and the legendary Count himself) are portrayed in modern cinema. I love you too much to condemn you. I would love to hear your thoughts on Bram Stoker's Dracula! GET IN TOUCH....

Slither
James Gunn is mostly known nowadays for his work with Marvel Studios for the Guardians of the Galaxy duology (and his famous firing and re-hiring from said company), and his most recent DC release The Suicide Squad which he made during his Marvel hiatus (similarities between this movie and the character of Starro not withstanding!) Before Marvel took a chance on him, he was a reasonably well known writer, having worked on the two Scooby-Doo live action movies, as well as writing Zack Snyder's Dawn of the Dead remake. After his work on Dawn of the Dead he started writing Slither, a tribute and homage to the horror B-movies he loved. With obvious homages to Shivers, The Blob, The Thing and Invasion of the Body Snatchers (but not Night of the Creeps, despite popular opinion that it is!), Slither is a gruesome, grotesque, imaginative take on an alien creature's plans to dominate the Earth, featuring excellent practical creature effects and imagery that you won't forget for a long time. And what does the sex toy industry have to do with the production of Slither? Find out in this episode! I would love to hear your thoughts on Slither! GET IN TOUCH....

Gremlins 2: The New Batch
The final episode of Sequeltember, Gremlins 2: The New Batch is, in many ways a total anomaly. It's likely many a millennial's first foray into the Gremlins universe (Gremlinverse?) due to it's focus on the cartoonish humour, rather than the horror aspects of the 1984 original. Plus it’s not often a director gets to make a sequel that the studio is so desperate for that they will relinquish creative control. This is a movie that knows it’s a cash grab sequel, but makes a mockery of it. It successfully manages to lampoon everything about its own world and mythology, even down to the ridiculous rules of Mogwai ownership. There’s no denying that Gremlins (1984) is a classic, and yet Gremlins 2 somehow manages to elevate itself because it knows the premise of the first movie is ridiculous. It doesn’t just stop at self-referencing and satirising itself though, it takes the Hollywood system of sequels and just throws shot after shot, while also upping the ante of its own production by making more diverse; literally a new batch of Gremlins. Gremlins 2: The New Batch is a completely self-aware, insane commentary on '80s excess, commercialism and greed, as well as being hilariously and fourth-wall-breakingly funny. That alone makes it one of the best sequels ever made, and the perfect end to this Sequeltember season. I would love to hear your thoughts on Gremlins 2: The New Batch!

Alien 3 & Alien Resurrection
Welcome to the first Nanorama episode - episodes slightly shorter, but focusing on interesting titbits of information. For this inaugural Nanorama, I'm continuing with the Alien franchise by talking a little about the multiple screenplay attempts for Alien 3 and the differences between David Fincher's experiences working with 20th Century Fox to Jean-Pierre Jeunet's on Alien Resurrection. Alien 3 reportedly had several attempts at a screenplay, most of which didn't even include Sigourney Weaver's Ellen Ripley, but some remnants of plot did end up in the final film, including how we ended up on a prison ship for David Fincher's directorial debut, which he has since disowned. Alien Resurrection also started without Ripley, as a smaller budget spin off focused on a clone of Newt, until Joss Whedon got involved with the script. Sigourney Weaver was adamant she was not going to return to the franchise for Alien Resurrection, but then she got offered a huge salary, an executive producer credit and the previously deceased Ripley got cloned... Special thanks to friends and excellent human beings over at https://rewindmoviecast.com/ (The Rewind Movie Podcast) https://twitter.com/rewindmoviecast (@rewindmoviecast), for allowing use of their specially made cover art for Alien 3 and Alien Resurrection for this episode of Verbal Diorama.

Aliens
In the pantheon of great sequels, nothing comes close to James Cameron's Aliens. It takes everything great about Ridley Scott's Alien and builds on it. It gives us more backstory for Ripley, more human characters for Ripley (and the audience) to form relationships with, and more importantly (especially as it's in the name), more aliens! The Alien Queen is both antithetic and comparable to Ripley. They're both mothers, both fiercely protective of their young, but unlike the alien queen's selfish motherhood, Ripley is selfless, and will die to protect young orphan Newt (which is even more poignant in the Director's Cut after finding out about the death of Ripley's own daughter) Unlike Alien's H.R. Giger designs, these xenomorphs are from the mind of James Cameron and the legendary Stan Winston studio, providing practical puppets that are still awe-inspiring and terrifying 35 years later. Everything about this movie is perfect, except maybe the situation surrounding Vazquez. I just don't believe that muscular Latina actresses didn't exist in 1986....

The Mummy Returns
100 episodes ago, I covered The Mummy (1999). It's still the greatest movie ever made. The Mummy Returns, the 2001 sequel to The Mummy, was always going to struggle to live up to the fun, charismatic original (especially in my eyes) Nowadays, The Mummy is revered as a modern classic that reinvigorated pulp action adventure movies, but The Mummy Returns languishes in the sand dunes of Hamunaptra for its visual effects; which are often labelled on the internet as "the worst VFX shot(s) ever". But The Mummy Returns was always planned to be bigger in scale and scope, and that included visually. Writer/director Stephen Sommers wanted to eclipse the original with more monsters. In many ways, The Mummy Returns achieves that desired upgrade, in others it doesn't. It has grand ambitions, even though it doesn't quite meet them. 20-year-old visual effects are never going to look great against modern standards, especially when the visual effects team were struggling with time and budget constraints. Maybe it's about time we cut The Mummy Returns some slack, and appreciate what it does do well? It may not reach the high heights of its predecessor, but it's a fun sequel that deserves your appreciation. Corridor Crew's fix for the "worst VFX shot ever" is available to watch https://youtu.be/KH1V6CHO1Jk (here). I would love to hear your thoughts on The Mummy Returns!

Toy Story 2
Sweet mother of Abraham Lincoln! Toy Story 2 has a story to tell! Yes, it's the first Pixar sequel, momentous in its own right, but it started off as a Disney direct-to-video sequel, with a character called Senorita Cactus and a talking Bullseye, voiced by Martin Short.... Then it became a theatrical release! Then it got deleted accidentally! Then it got deleted on purpose! Then it got remade in nine months! Just one of these facts would be a miracle. Toy Story 2 has four. Pixar went above and beyond to ensure Toy Story 2 didn't just match Toy Story; that it surpassed it visually and emotionally, and introduced new characters without sacrificing the arcs of existing characters. Truly, Jessie and Bullseye feel like they've always been in Andy's room. Toy Story 2 could have easily been just a direct-to-video cash grab, but making it a theatrical release was the thing that brought in the big buck-buck-bucks, and cemented it as Pixar's greatest franchise. The article on the Pixar blooper reels can be found https://www.filmstories.co.uk/features/celebrating-the-bloopers-reel-at-the-end-of-pixar-movies/ (here) I would love to hear your thoughts on Toy Story 2!

X-Men 2
Mutants. Since the discovery of their existence, they have been regarded with fear, suspicion, often hatred. Across the planet debate rages. Are mutants the next link in the evolutionary chain? Or simply a new species of humanity, fighting for their share of the world? Either way, it is an historical fact that sharing the world has never been humanity's defining attribute. X-Men 2 took the mould made by its 2000 predecessor, and made it bigger, bolder and better. For the first movie in Sequeltember, I take a look into its guaranteed greenlighting after the first movie's success, the comic book storyline behind the plot, and the introduction of one of the greatest comic book characters put to film; Alan Cumming's Nightcrawler - a blue-skinned demon with a kind heart and strong faith that also happens to feature in one of the greatest cold opens of any superhero movie. Honestly, it's just such a shame that this movie, as well as its predecessor, is so blighted by association to Bryan Singer. His behaviour on the set of this movie actually got a major cast member injured and yet the guy still kept getting hired.... X-Men 2 is widely seen as one of the best X-Men movies, and started the evolution of superhero cinema. Well mutation is the key to our evolution.... I would love to hear your thoughts on X-Men 2!

LabyrinthPan's Labyrinth (El laberinto del fauno)
Most of us grew up on adaptations of fairy tales; on stories of princesses, animal companions, and ultimately a happily ever after ending. Guillermo del Toro successfully interprets and deconstructs the fairy tale in his 2006 masterpiece Pan's Labyrinth, by blending a nightmarish fantasy world of fauns, fairies and quests, with a similarly nightmarish real world of war, fascist regimes and evil stepparents with beautiful practical effects and make-up. Disobedience is often seen as "wrong", but in this story, disobedience is framed as the right thing to do. Ofelia disobeys and follows her own gut and suffers the consequences. Mercedes and Doctor Ferriero disobey Captain Vidal to help the rebel fighters. Ofelia's disobedience and choices shape the morals of this story - that evil is bad, innocence is good and that faun's are never completely trustworthy. Everything about this beautiful, dark, twisted fairy-tale is perfectly realised on screen. I truly believe this is del Toro's magnum opus, and a movie everyone needs on their to-watch list. I would love to hear your thoughts on Pan's Labyrinth! GET IN TOUCH....

Alien
In space, no one can hear you scream. Thankfully though, they can hear a podcast. I think. Comparisons to Jaws aside, Alien remains one of the seminal science fiction horror movies of all time, generating fear through its H.R. Giger designed sets and creature work, and the copious amounts of sexual and phallic imagery denoting the ultimate in terror - the fear of sexual violence, specifically male rape. With a character roster that was cast without gender prejudice came one of cinema's greatest ever heroes - Ellen Ripley. A character who loses none of her strength or femininity, in a cinematic landscape where women were portrayed as only being one or the other. Sigourney Weaver cemented herself as an icon, and the Xenomorph cemented itself as willing to do whatever it takes to get off this planet and breed. From egg, to facehugger, to chestburster and then fully-grown Xenomorph, is there any cinematic creature so revered, fascinating or iconic than this perfect organism? If we've learned anything, it's to go into quarantine when you need to. It keeps everyone safe! And always listen to the smart woman with the cat.... ;-) Speaking of cats, yes Jess is in this episode. Unlike Jonesy though, she does not perform on cue.....
