Gobbledygeek episode 89, “Now I Gotta Catch Me My Other Girlfriends,” is available for listening or download right here.
For the penultimate installment of Tarantino Month, the boys set their high-beams on 2007’s Death Proof. Thrill! as they discuss Kurt Russell’s magnificent creepiness as the psychotic Stuntman Mike. Contemplate! as they analyze the film’s subversion of slasher movie tropes. Ponder! as they explore the rape-y aspects of Death Proof and even Kill Bill, and what that means in the context of stories about strong women. Plus, Paul rants about spoilerphobes and the lie Fandango (quite literally) sold him; and, with a rueful, barely-functioning heart, AJ explains how he came into contact with a deep-fried Twinkie and lived to tell the tale.
Next: Tarantino Month comes to a close with the WWII revenge fantasy Inglourious Basterds.
