THE UNENTHUSIASTIC CRITIC PODCAST
Destroying our marriage, one movie at a time…
Some are born critics, some become critics, and some have criticism thrust upon them.
Each week, Michael (The Unaffiliated Critic) introduces his reluctant wife Nakea (The Unenthusiastic Critic) to a classic film that nearly everyone else on the planet has already seen.
Because true love means conning your partner into watching movies they really, really don't want to watch.
It's alive! The Unenthusiastic Critic's 2019 Halloween Movie Marathon gets underway with a classic creature double-feature from the golden age of the Universal movie monsters.
The Unenthusiastic Critic is thinking about chucking her wedding ring into Mt. Doom.
"Let's be real. You can't detach this nostalgia and romanticizing of this entire civilization from the fact that it was born on the back of chattel slavery. So to ignore this whole piece of the narrative, and create this idea that you are the oppressed people is just disgusting."
"I'm not doing this. In the time it would take to watch this movie, the polar icecaps would be melting further, and we could all end up dying in a flood. And my last activity on this earth would be watching Gone with the Fucking Wind. And it would be your fault."
"When you traffic in this territory, however satirical or irreverent you want to be, it takes a much stronger empathy towards the material in order to be successful."
