Parallax Podcast #16: Looper, On the Road, That’s My Boy, The Raven & more

In the latest episode of The Parallax Podcast, Luke Buckmaster and Rich Haridy ponder the Bruce Willis/Joseph Gordon-Levitt time travel flick Looper plus an assortment of old and new films -- including a novel approach to reviewing Adam Sandler's latest 'comedy' That's My Boy.

[podcast][/podcast] Joseph Gordon-Levitt and Bruce Willis play two versions of the same character in the assassin-for-hire/time travel-with-a-twist romp Looper. Jack Kerouac's classic novel On the Road is brought to the screen with vivid detail in its first feature film adaptation. These are the two new cinema releases dissected and debated by Luke Buckmaster and Rich Haridy in the latest episode of The Parallax Podcast. Buckmaster and Haridy also discuss two recent DVDs: The Raven, starring John Cusack as Edgar Allan Poe, and Adam Sandler's latest 'comedy' That's My Boy. Anticipating that a conventional critique of That's My Boy might not suffice, the Parallax Podcasters offer something special -- a sort of vodka-infused quasi DVD commentary. Finally, cult film expert Zak Herburn joins the couch, armed with Dennis Hopper's 1971 oddity The Last Movie.  To listen, use the player above or subscribe to The Parallax Podcast iTunes feed.
