Film Podcast – Dare Daniel Mini-Episode 29.5

Oprah Winfrey in A Wrinkle in Time“If you are a connoisseur of the bad movie, just swirl this one around in your glass for a few minutes before quaffing.”

Just as predicted in Blade Runner, hosts Daniel Barnes and Corky McDonnell start the first new Dare Daniel episode of 2019 by previewing Tan BIng’s China Salesman, an international action movie that also serves as anti-western propaganda for Chinese telecommunications companies.

Daniel and Corky also look back at their previous review of A Christmas Story 2, an unfathomably unfunny Christmas comedy that would take the holly out of anyone’s jollies.

Meanwhile, San Francisco Film Critics Circle member Daniel reveals his favorite and least favorite films of 2018, closing with a heartfelt endorsement of Nicolas Cage’s bathroom freakout in Mandy.

Elsewhere, Corky discusses the birth of kink, Daniel reveals his teenage alter ego Scoop Filmswell, and both hosts try not to get their cosplay underwear bunched up while reading your movie dares.

New Dares: Fathers’ Day (Leo); The Musketeer (Colin Williams); Star Wars: The Last Jedi (Obi-Wan Kenobi’s Force Ghost)
