He Has His Father’s Eyes

Podcast 083: Rosemary’s BabyEven with our current sloppy podcast schedule, we can’t not celebrate Halloween here at 101 Towers. So Lewis and Ian have donned their most terrifying and zeitgeist-y costumes (Lewis is a ‘Make America Great Again’ hat, and Ian is a Brexit) and settled down to watch Rosemary’s Baby.

Considered by many as the greatest horror film ever made, Rosemary’s Baby follows Mia Farrow as Rosemary who, after moving into a strange old apartment complex with her husband, falls pregnant. Slowly, she begins to suspect that the weird, elderly next door neighbours are in a witches coven have designs on her unborn child…

Our podcast contains the usual nonsense, fluff, poor recall and misunderstandings that are so important to the 101 Films magic. Listen to the very end for a classic bit of Ian not being able to remember the most basic of facts about a film he has just watched.

If our review has piqued your interest in the film, you can buy the Rosemary’s Baby DVD from Amazon by clicking here (and we get a little bit of cash if you do – thanks in advance).

Anyway, without further ado, let us present our feature presentation:

Forget it, Jake

The boys over at 101 Films have been given a tricky case to crack – how to discuss a film’s plot without ruining it for those who haven’t seen it. Lewis and Ian do their best as they talk about the stupendous Chinatown. Listen as they witter on about Big Trouble in Little China, Command and Conquer Red Alert 3, the amazing Jack Nicholson, the many Los Angeles Infrastructure films, Batman a few times (of course) and our Mum’s favourite films. Apologies in advance, we sort of lose focus towards the end of this one.
