Trash, Art, And The Movies
The podcast that pits arthouse cinema against brainless entertainment—and then declares a victor.

Poof! Erin and Paul review two movies about pairs of magicians whose games of oneupmanship go to deadly extremes. First: THE PRESTIGE, Christopher Nolan's 2006 drama starring Hugh Jackman and Christian Bale as rival 19th-century stage magicians whose commitment to their art threatens to destroy each other, and everyone they love; then, PENN & TELLER GET KILLED, the 1989 oddity starring Penn and Teller as themselves, a team of smart-aleck magicians who must go on the run from a crazed fan after Penn glibly remarks on a TV talk show that he thinks it would be cool if someone were trying to kill him. The New Transported Man or The Magical Bouncing Bagel: which will prevail?

Plus: quick takes on GATE OF FLESH and WORLD WAR Z.
