This week’s guest on The Islander is author Jim Morton.  He was a contributing editor to Incredibly Strange Films and in the early 80s put out the fanzine Trashola.  He has forgotten more about horror and sexploitation films than most people will ever know, and his picks definitely reflect his eclectic tastes.

Midnight in Paris.  Paris might be a “movable feast,” but Midnight In Paris is more like a buffet stuck in the 20s.

Kung Fu Panda 2.  In the 80s, a film was released with the tagline, “The movie that kicks you in the face!”  Panda 2 is more like a kick in the gut–or maybe just a bit lower.

Bridesmaids.  “Always a bridesmaid, never a bride.”  As far as comedy goes, this might not be such a bad thing.

The Tree of Life.  Silly and pretentious?  Or a daring, surprising film?  Or maybe, a little bit of both?

Thanks for listening!  We’ll be back in two weeks.
