For this very special episode, we are joined again by Mr. Quentin Tarantino to talk about Final Films from directors. By "Final Films", we are of course referring to the last film that a director did - the one that closed out their career. This is the first time Quentin has done a proper episode with us and we were very excited to have him pick "5 Films Because" with us on this topic. We hope you enjoy the conversation - it's one of our favorite episodes that we've done!

To kick off 2021, Elric and Brian go back to the very beginnings of the show where they declared that their 5 film lists would "5 Films Because" as to open things up for the highlighting of not just favorites and "best" films in a category, but rather anything they'd like to highlight. As such, both of them have chosen 5 films to talk about this episode and there wasn't any rhyme or reason to the choosing. Just 5 films they each wanted to watch and films that hadn't really been chosen as picks on the show before. Enjoy!

On this episode, Elric and Brian had the pleasure of welcoming back one of their favorite guests - TCM Underground Programmer Millie De Chirico (who previously joined us for our "Kiddie Midnights episode among others). Guidelines for this show were to program 5 double features each - consisting of one Exploitation film and one Arthouse film. It was a fun challenge and hopefully the results are enjoyable and perhaps momentarily thought provoking.

It's Spooky September! Sure it's not October yet, but For this episode - Elric and Brian are taking the idea that they've used in the past for Exploitation and transferring it to a "Horror Sampler" idea. In this case the categories covered include a film pick each in the categories of Slasher, Supernatural, Creature Feature, Foreign Language Horror and of course a Wild Card Spot. Hopefully this serves as a nice primer for your Horror movie viewing options as you ramp up to the Halloween season!

For this very special episode, we are doing something we almost never do - which is release a Patreon Exclusive episode into our main feed so all the listeners can have a chance to hear what it is we do in terms of the bonus content over on our Patreon. This is one of our Monthly "Hangout Episodes" where we discuss what we've been watching, offer Blu-ray, streaming and film book picks and also have some kind of main topic as well. This Hangout episode is one we actually thought about as a regular episode at one point and it has to do with each of us catching up with some films that have been recommended on the show in the past that we've meant to watch but hadn't gotten around to until now. This episode was a lot of fun to research and record and we hope you enjoy. Big big thanks to our Patreon supporters who made this possible!
