RECORDING NOTE: Hi friends! It’s been a while. Have you missed us? We have missed you. We know that its been a while. Really-real life has been a bit of a beast for the both of us. This episode was recorded in April (so very long ago). So a few things may seem oddly out of time and place…. but maybe, given the film we are reviewing, that’s ok. The Chicks will be back in their monthly rotation very, very soon.
In lucky Episode 13, the Chicks review the 1995 time travelling mind-trip, Twelve Monkeys. Its one third time-travel, one third viral apocalypse and one third Terry Gilliam wackiness. The flick stars Bruce Willis, Brad Pitt, Madeleine Stowe, Christopher Plummer, and David Morse.
The Chicks derail pretty hard in this episode and discuss what they have been watching, shared Twelve Monkeys delusions, actors who basically play themselves, mutual love for Jake Gyllenhaal, Kristine’s Herd, the Blade Runner sequel (and reboots, remakes and cash grabs… again), how films resonate with you depending on what point in your life you watch or re-watch it, their forlorn for kids’ movie-watching today, curating their Netflix queue, and TV vs Movies.
