MARK AS PLAYED: Annihilation and the Defense of Sci-Fi


On this episode we decide to listen to one of the many concerns from Film Twitter that found its way to our official complaint box (@markasplayedpod) and take up the defense of science fiction as a genre. To do so we present Exhibit A: Alex Garland's new box-office bomb ANNIHILATION. And when that doesn't work we turn to two other great movie podcasts to make the case for the health and well-being of this genre, regardless of the reception to this Natalie Portman starring flick. So sit back and listen to us, THE TRUE BROMANCE FILM PODCAST and THE FILM FIND. Everything will be alright cinephiles, just as soon as you hit play and follow at the links below:

WHAT THE FEST!? Interview with Larry Fessenden on DEPRAVED

On this episode of the podcast, I had the chance to chat with genre legend Larry Fessenden. He was kind enough to carve out 20 minutes of his day to chat with me about his latest film DEPRAVED, the opening night selection for this year's WHAT THE FEST!? 
Shot on the 200th Anniversary of Mary Shelley’s FRANKENSTEIN,  writer-director Larry Fessenden’s brings his unique vision of the literary classic in DEPRAVED, set in modern Brooklyn. This meditative reimagining of the novel explores the crisis of masculinity and ideas about loneliness, memory and the subtle psychological shocks that shape us as individuals.
