The Broken Projector Movie Podcast
A movie podcast that isn't boring.

The Shining Triplets

On this week's show, we launch a new feature called Convince Me, and in our inaugural edition, Geoff tries to convince me that The Shining deserves a remake (or re-adaptation if you're nasty). We tie all of that up nicely with a pink bow by discussing the Torrance family conspiracy doc Room 237 with Nonfics editor-in-chief Chris Campbell (who also tells us a bit about the brand new site and how he plans to convert more people into documentary lovers).

You should follow Chris (@thefilmcynic), the show (@brokenprojector), Geoff (@drgmlatulippe) and Scott (@scottmbeggs) on Twitter for more on a daily basis.

And, as always, if you like the show (or hate it with seething fervor), please help us out with a review.

On this fun size edition of the program, Geoff defends Steven Spielberg's unfairly maligned War of the Worldsand I defend the unfairly maligned dumping ground of September-October as one of the very best times of the year for movie fans. It's a magical two months for one very important reason.

We'd also like to thank all of you for pushing us over 125,000 downloads last week. It means Geoff can finally afford shoes.

World Trade Center

On this week's 12th anniversary of the 9/11 attacks, we're dropping the usual format for an extended roundtable conversation about terrorism and September 11th's effect on film and television. How has our consumption changed? What movie best captures the national spirit in the years following? How soon is too soon to directly confront a tragedy in fiction?

We're joined by Indiewire's TV Editor and Filmspotting: SVU Podcast co-host Alison WillmoreMovie Mezzanine founder and editor-in-chief Sam Fragoso, and FSR's own associate editor Rob Hunter.

The end is nigh, and speculation is high. Will Walt ride off into the blue sunset, or fall off his horse? If it's the latter, how many will he drag down with him? Will we ever get to see Badger's Star Trek episode?

With so many pressing questions, we turn to Breaking Bad expert Joanna Robinson to parse the crackpot theories and provide so many guesses about the final episode that we're sure to accidentally stumble upon the right answer.

Plus, FSR Associate Editor Rob Hunter joins us for our Fantasy Fall Movie Box Office and Prestige-Off draft, and the stakes couldn't be higher.

You should follow Rob (@fakerobhunter), Joanna (@quityourjrob), the show (@brokenprojector), Geoff (@drgmlatulippe) and Scott (@scottmbeggs) on Twitter for more fun stuff on a daily basis.
