These Final Hours:
One of the reoccurring features here at The Nerd Mentality has been Garrett’s Films from the Basement series. In it, he watches and reviews the bad, the downtrodden, and also the obscure. Why you ask? Some would say he likes to torture himself because he was never allowed new and nice things living in the basement. He was shackled to a chair only having ice cream for his meals. What he really wanted that whole time was a Baby Ruth. Now that he is allowed to live above-ground and watch some decent films, he still likes to recall his time spent below. These Final Hours an Australian Pre-Apocalyptic film is our second episode this week.
This actually ended up being our longest podcast so far. It’s probably due to the widest difference of opinion we have had yet on a film. As most, if not all weeks we pick films neither have seen and sometimes not even heard of prior to review. This foreign film, though recent, did not do much in the way of box office numbers and seemed to be an interesting film to look into. See what we thought and which of the hosts liked and recommended the film.
Next week we tackle Fernando Di Leo’s milieu trilogy which we will tackle in one long “meatball” sized episode as Garrett put it. So tune in and hear our take on some Italian crime films!
We hope you you enjoy our discussions and also welcome anyone to join in and comment below. Our new email address is firstname.lastname@example.org which you can send suggestions or thoughts. Furthermore, we hope to continue the podcast each week and keep a steady stream of basement films!
