This week we've got a special Halloween treat with filmmaker Bill Scurry returning to the podcast to watch The Rocky Horror Picture Show for the first time at last year's 40th anniversary screening at the Ziegfeld Theater. Join us as Bill experiences Rocky the way it's meant to be seen -- with Barry Bostwick and 200 screaming, costumed fans.

After the screening, Bill and I talk about Rocky Horror as the first movie "meme,"  Tim Curry's enduring greatness, whether or not it's actually a "bad" movie and much more. 

Follow Bill on Twitter and check out his short film work over on his website. Here's an episode of his series No Talking During the Movie about Liquid Sky, a film (like Rocky Horror) that played at NYC's Waverly Theater. 

Here's a nice piece on the cultural and social significance of Rocky Horror. And, hey, why not read about the late, great Ziegfeld Theater

This week Ear Hammer radio host Rommel Wood stops by to make some misty water-colored memories and watch The Way We Were for the first time. 

We drink beer (for Redford) and white wine (for Babs) and talk about watching a classic 1970s romance through a modern feminist lens, movies we watched with our moms, just what exactly a nice Jewish girl like Katie sees in boring, preppy Hubbell and much more. 

Follow Rommel on Twitter and listen to her show Ear Hammer over on Radio Free Brooklyn for great music and the hit segment The Dolores Claiborne Minute. 

Here's Babs' version of "Putting it Together," featuring The Way We Were director Sydney Pollack and David Geffen as record industry douchebags.

Don't forget your booties campers, because this week writer/comedian Drew Weisholtz stops by to watch the Bill Murray/Harold Ramis classic Groundhog Day for the first time. 

Join us as we discuss the cult of Murray, comfort movies, exactly how long Phil is stuck in the time loop and much more.

Follow Drew on Twitter and check out his writing on TheFW, GuySpeed and Antenna Mag. And if you're in the magazine aisle, be sure to check out his quips for US Weekly's "Fashion Police." 

Here's a video that posits that Phil was stuck in Punxsutawney for 12,395 days. Sounds about right. 

Drew is correct about Andie MacDowell's voice being dubbed over for her film debut in Greystoke: The Legend of Tarzan. The filmmakers didn't think her dulcet Southern tones fit the proper Englishwoman Jane and replaced her voice with that of the illustrious Glenn Close.
