PROJECTING FILM: Pottersville (Jaws meets Bowfinger)

Our latest episode spreads the holiday cheer in a way that you never knew you wanted: Michael Shannon in a drunken rage, terrorizing a small town as Bigfoot. This hard to categorize monster movie by way of Hallmark leads us to a discussion on JAWS as not just a scary shark movie but a terrifying look at a small town's insecurity. And the only way to top that is to look at those desparate enough to try and make it in the film business, such as the characters in the Steve Martin and Eddie Murphy comedy classic BOWFINGER. Like most Christmas episodes this leads to a bit of self-reflection from your hosts Mike and Chris... which means that this particular episode is easy to categorize as a tragedy.

Abbie's older brother issues him the ultimate challenge before it goes down: beat the infamous level 256 in Pac-Man and no getting up from the couch until he does so. Abbie’s survival story begins here; inside a rotting living room with no food or water, and a revolving door of numb-nut friends and acquaintances. It’s THE EXTERMINATING ANGEL by way of SLACKER.

Ambition is a powerful drug that can inspire positive change. It can force you outside of the comfortable boxes you place yourself in. It asks you to stretch and reimagine not only the person you are but the person you could be. Most great men and women have a deep relationship with what they see as their purpose. This is a personality trait never driven by or limited to the pragmatic and there in lies the problem. Logic be damned, when a sense of determination is your north star. 
Michael Vaughn (Sommer) is an ambitious psychic on the road promoting a book that no one is buying. Using parlor tricks and audience plants Vaughn helps people "connect" with loved ones who have passed on. Somewhere in between a traveling preacher and a low-rent John Edwards he sees himself as a man destined …
