390: Road to "MaXXXine" Part Two - Please, I'm A Star! - A "Pearl" Retrospective

Happy Thursday, Christmas Fanatics! And Happy Fourth of July to all of our American listeners!   Since we didn't get a chance to record a bonus Independence Day episode this year, we're releasing another episode that was originally intended to drop on Patreon instead! (Hence the explicit tag for language!) Think of it as a second "Summerween" treat, for Anthony is once again joined by his friend, Cookie, to continue their journey on the "Road to 'MaXXXine'". This time, they're sitting down to discuss the Ti West/A24 2022 film, "Pearl" which serves as the "X-traordinary origin story" to "X"!    Listen as they dive deep into the plot of this character study that just happens to contain horror elements, explore its relatable themes, laugh a lot over some pretty uncomfortable moments, and much, much more!    This is a really fun one, so give it a listen and stay tuned - for Anthony and Cookie have one final episode coming quite soon as well: a discussion about the brand new, just-releasing-this-weekend, "MaXXXine", the final installment of this unique horror trilogy!    As always, thanks for your love and support, y'all! And keep an eye on your podcast feeds Monday morning for your regularly scheduled Christmas programming where Anthony, Julia, and Thom will be reviewing 2023's "Silent Night"! ❤️🎅🏻🎄🎁 🦌🦉⛄️🔔🚂 🤶🏻 🎀 ❄️
