    All of a sudden, whoa…there’s Beastman Once upon a time, there was a movie that told a story.

    19/04/2021 Duración: 44min

    The Cell was a film that divided the RM crew, sowing seeds of discontent and argument about the merits of its production design, writing, direction, and use of J-Lo. Some said the amount of J-Lo was too little. Some said too much. Do you think it was just right? Amongst all of this confusion, some things […]

We take on 1980’s Stir Crazy, starring Gene Wilder and Richard Pryor, and directed by Sidney Poitier, and see how we can make this tale about mistaken identity, prison rodeos, song-and-dance clown mascots, and using pliers as a negotiating tool while talking about your feelings, […]
