“The John is good! The Alexx is evil! The Alexx shoots seeds and makes new life to poison the earth with a plague of men, as once it was. But the John shoots death and purifies the earth. . . . Zardoz has spoken.” John and Alexx watched Zardoz. Now everything is different.
The fellas dive into this no-budget creature feature with unexpected results. Alexx puts on his best duct tape and shows off some new vocal skills. Meanwhile, the sight of Bigfoot’s dong sends John into a Proustian reverie about his own filmmaking past.
The Safdie brothers thriller is as multi-faceted as the titular gem itself. John sees Howard Ratner’s struggle as a microcosm of the human existence where we fruitlessly try to gain forward progress while trapped on the hamster wheel of modern existence. Alexx wants more dick jokes.
Next episode starts terrible movie month with “Suburban Sasquatch”
“You’ve got males.” Get it? Like the AOL soundclip, and John and Alexx identify as male? It’s a homonym joke…
Anyway, in this week’s paean to NYC (it’s like another main character!), Alexx and John discuss You’ve Got Mail. Cyber sex was had, ASCII dicks were created, and Alexx has a mental health breakdown. Enjoy!
