“Hey, get these losers out.”
Wachowski sister apologist Daniel Barnes and lost Elfman brother Corky McDonnell come to do no good in this week’s Dare Daniel podcast mini-episode. The hosts preview their upcoming review of the 2000 horror-comedy Leprechaun in the Hood, the fifth entry in the long-running series starring Warwick Davis. Daniel and Corky also rehash their disagreement from last week’s review of Ishtar, although they both agree that writer-director Elaine May was definitely ahead of her time. In honor of Elaine May and Women’s History Month, Daniel and Corky offer their picks for the best and worst films directed by women, while also reading listener feedback from Twitter. Elsewhere, the hosts discuss Can’t Stop the Music, vanilla rice cakes and forbidden zones.
Question of the Week: What are the best and worst films directed by women?
Daniel’s picks: Best – Cameraperson (Kirsten Johnson); Worst – Mixed Nuts (Nora Ephron)
Corky’s picks: Best – Fast Times at Ridgemont High (Amy Heckerling); Worst – Crossroads (Tamra Davis)
New Dares: Stardust (David Paul); The Forbidden Zone (Bob and Barbara from A Gal Walks Into a Comic Shop); Robin Hood: Prince of Thieves (The Sheriff of Nottingham)
