The F.I.L.M. Army: September 2010 Edition – Directors And Other Monsters

As our Fearless Announcer(TM) states. September is by far the worst month for movies. Too late for the summer blockbuster yet too early for the Oscar bait, September is a veritable dumping ground for Hollywood films. So this month the F.I.L.M. Army looks a little deeper in the dreck and mire (not to be confused with Breckin Meyer, who’s surfer-accountant swagger is swoonworthy) of the film world. Courtney takes a look at the dark side of success in the documentary Overnight, while Evan interviews the sweet side of un-success in the form of Lloyd Kaufman, founder of Troma Films, the longest running independent film house in the world. Sandwiched between these two like some sort of cheesy filling is Nate’s vivisection at Catwoman in Box Office Poison.

This month’s soundtrack was brought to you by MacGruber, out now on DVD and Bluray.

A short show, to be sure, but a high quality one. Much like free two-week trials of Netflix, in that they both pack much entertainment into short packages. Keep the schoolyard jokes to yourselves, please.

Come on down and check out Evan, Ashley, and maybe some other Fancy Pants Gangsters at the Chicagoland Entertainment Collector’s Expo on September 9th-12. We’ll be doing live streaming as well as talking to people live at the show, and we’d love if a few of our listeners showed up to say hi as well. Stay tuned to the site for more details.

More information and show notes can be found in our forums. You can find out how to submit your segments to the show there as well. Questions and comments can be left below or can be sent to The F.I.L.M. Army can also be found on Facebook and Twitter, or in the hearts of the brave men and women who fight everyday for film and internet independence.
