Playing Hooky 24.jpg

Welcome back, friends and allies, to the Playing Hooky Podcast! This episode, we review two totally bitchin’ movies. First, Nate brings the Guy Ritchie crime comedy, “Snatch,” to the table.

Set in the London criminal underworld, the film contains two intertwined plots: one dealing with the search for a stolen diamond, the other with a small-time boxing promoter (Jason Statham) who finds himself under the thumb of a ruthless gangster (Alan Ford) who is ready and willing to have his subordinates carry out severe and sadistic acts of violence. - Wikipedia

After that, Rachel brings the 2013 science fiction action film, “Snowpiercer,” to the table.

Snowpiercer is based on the French graphic novel Le Transperceneige by Jacques Lob, Benjamin Legrand and Jean-Marc Rochette. The film is directed by Bong Joon-ho, and written by Bong and Kelly Masterson. -

Playing Hooky 18.jpg

Please be aware: the topics we discuss in this episode are of a sexual and violent nature. If you are sensitive to these topics, you may want to skip this episode.
In this episode, we review two incredibly different movies. First, Rachel presents the 1994 Warner Brothers film, Black Beauty.
From Wikipedia:
Black Beauty is a 1994 American film adaptation of Anna Sewell's novel by the same name directed by Caroline Thompson in her directorial debut. The film stars Andrew Knott, Sean Bean and David Thewlis. The film is also treated as an autobiography of the horse Black Beauty as in the original novel, and is narrated by Alan Cumming as the voice of the 'Black Beauty'. This is the fifth feature film adaptation of the 1877 classic novel by Anna Sewell.

Nathan presents the totally unrelated 1997 film, Dance With the Devil:
Perdita Durango, released as Dance with the Devil in the United States, is a 1997 Spanish/Mexican action-crime film directed by Álex de la Iglesia, based on Barry Gifford's novel 59° and Raining: The Story of Perdita Durango. It stars Javier Bardem as Romeo Dolorosa and co-stars Rosie Perez. It was inspired by Magdalena Solís and the Hernandez Brothers sect.
