GO HOME IN A BOX - EPISODE 33: "INVASION OF THE BODY SNATCHERS/SHIVERS"

On this edition of Go Home in a Box, your hosts Chris Jordan and Joel La Puma run down the Oscar Best Picture nominees and then pull one of them out of the mix in order to analyze movies with a similar theme. That Best Picture nominee is GET OUT and its paranoia horror aspect leading in to a discussion of INVASION OF THE BODY SNATCHERS (1978) and SHIVERS (1975), which was David Cronenberg's feature debut. Then stay tuned as they rattle off the plethora of new retro releases coming to blu-ray the week of 2/13.

TIME TO CHANGE THINGS UP

So, yeah....there has been a gap in the output lately. It's mostly due to familial responsibilities and health concerns, but I would be lying if I told you that I enjoy trying to hammer out a review for 5-6 paragraphs. Truth is, it's become quite heady and mechanical for me lately. I enjoy sharing my viewpoints on all these great (and not so great) films, but it has become time consuming. I am much more at home with short and succinct analysis without all the padding. So beginning with the next review, we're going to try a crispy, shiny new format. We'll basically outline facts about the film, in terms of budget (where available) and box office return; a brief plot synopsis, then a brief review with the usual rating.

Thanks again for all the support in the past, present and future. Retro Movie Nerd has been a blast and sometimes a fresh approach is required in order to keep it going.
