Episode 65: E.T. not included

Friendly 80's Aliens!

Spotlight Interview with Writer/Director, Matthew Robbins!

This week, Faults in the Vaults returns again as we get another visit from the stars. It's an Amblin Entertainment - alien double feature as we turn off our heart lights on 1982's E.T. the Extra-Terrestrial in favor of 1987's *batteries not included.

This trip to The Mailbag produces some listener suggested Faults in the Vaults and a discussion on the career of the late, great Jonathan Demme, as well as some advice for better parenting through torrenting.

Podcast, title cardJosh goes Diggin' Up The Docs and finds Kent Jones' retrospective on Hitchcock/Truffaut (2015), based on Truffaut's classic film lit book, Cinema According to Hitchcock. Mitch details the long strange tale behind Shin Sang-Ok's kaiju curio, Pulgasari (1985), one of the rare few North Korean films to be released around the globe as part of Where in the World Cinema?

In another edition of Slipping Through the Tracks, Josh selects the score to 1981's Heartbeeps, the colossal Andy Kaufman flop, which just so happens to feature an interesting fusion of classical orchestral music and New Wave - synth from legendary composer, John Williams!

Also in this episode, post-Fourth of July celebrations, BabbleVision, Josh gains a Predator and talks about a Close Encounter, and the guys gift alien visitors with handmade Earthbound products from the good people at Raleigh Soapery!
