#59. Alien: Covenant (2017) w/ Jeannette Ng — A Shoot the WISB Subcast

19 Jun

Byron, Shelley, and Wagner, oh my! Shaun, David, and Jen, discuss Ridley Scott’s newest edition to the Alien universe, Alien: Covenant, with special guest, Jeannette Ng! The group travel deep into the weeds of the literary and theological references in the film (dragging Shaun along kicking and screaming), Ridley Scott’s ambitious vision, and David’s (not to be confused with the David on the podcast) role as the protagonist of Prometheus and Covenant. It’s a bit of a heavy hitter.

We hope you enjoy the episode!

The Intersection: Dear Horror Genre, Let’s Talk

15 Mar

Dearest Reader, I hope you don’t mind taking a side-quest into Horror today. Horror, as I see it, is related to Science Fiction and Fantasy. Yes, it’s its own entity, but it’s related via Surrealism. Sometimes they’re so closely related that it’s difficult to separate one from the other. (See Alien, Invasion of the Body Snatchers, Attack the Block, Pitch Black, and Event Horizon to name a few.) I used to consume a great deal of Horror[1], but at a certain point I no longer felt safe or welcome — even as a viewer. So, I left it behind, but I think I may be wandering back in thanks to a number of new releases and well, a certain podcast that I’d also like to recommend. (Women in Caskets, I’m looking at you. :)) WiCs reminded me of how much I miss Horror, and of how much I’ve missed. Continue reading
