    Are you going to watch Death Ring? That’s definitely a M.

    “The Most Dangerous Month!”
    Hmm, does that mean that you will be reviewing the most dangerous Geist? 😛

    BRAVO to Goob & MOM for their review of a cinema classic! Between this and Karate Kid last week, you’re really wetting my appetite for more Podcasts on classic movies.

    On the subject of gimmicks being used in the theater… Goob, have you ever been to Disney World/Land? I remember back about 10 years ago when I went (I’ve been to both, but can’t remember which had what) and they had a couple of short theatrical experiences that made use of some of those immersion techniques. One of them was based on the “Honey, I Shrunk the Kids” movies, and featured 3D glasses,
    audience participation (the shrink ray was turned on the audience at one point, and the doctor picks up and carries the “theater” around), tactile simulation (a scene where a whole swarm of lab rats escapes into the audience included little motorized rubbery lashes that would whip around near your feet, and fans/sprays of water were employed when a snake poked its head into the shrunken theater and hissed.)

    There was another one using characters from A Bug’s Life (that predated the movie, actually) with similar effects.

    I don’t know if these “rides” still operate, but they were a blast when I was in 6th grade…

    Coming in after the fact, as I often do…

    But I wanted to say that it’s great you took time to cover an older, black and white movie. The kids these days, they aren’t so into the black and white, but us old folks know there’s some amazing films to be had sans color.

    Perhaps there’s still hope for Castle’s reputation in the world of serious business film studies – Cook’s gargantuan A History of Narrative Film gives him a solid column of coverage, a good 2-300 words more than a footnote. 🙂
