Movies My Friends Have Never Seen

The podcast where my friends watch classic movies for the first time. Hosted by Nick Nadel. Logo by Tim Finn. 

Jun 21, 2018

This week we're getting afraid, very afraid with Alama Drafthouse Brooklyn film programmer Cristina Cacioppo stopping by to watch Jeff Goldblum vomit goo for the first time in the David Cronenberg horror classic The Fly.

Join us as we discuss how the film cemented the classic Goldblum persona, the many ways Cronenberg avoids horror movie cliches, how movies change as we grow older, the weird connection between The Fly and The Lost World: Jurassic Park, Cristina's approach to film programming and much more. 

Check out the excellent films Cristina programs at the Alamo Drafthouse Brooklyn like the Australian film Puberty Blues screening in July. 

Watch the deleted monkey-cat scene. (Content warning: the clip contains cruelty to both monkeys and cats.)
