 201: Eclectica 201 - Sisters Brothers + Shazam! + Ikarie XB-1 | File Type: audio/mpeg | Duration: 4355

**the Cult of Kim Newman's Left Hand** Getting the maximum possible out of the name 'Hermann Kermit Warm', Tim and Graham head out West for a review of Jacques Audiard's English-language debut **The Sisters Brothers**, and revive an old Eclectica staple with Question of the Week. While they were watching Joaquin Phoenix's ongoing battles with enunciation, Andrew was in the screen next door, watching DC's latest effort to turn this thing around - **Shazam!** Does it earn its exclamation mark? Off the Shelf sees Mick beam in from next week's show to review Second Run's Blu-Ray of Czech SF landmark **Ikarie XB-1**, while Graham puzzles over mid-period Resnais in Arrow Academy's **Melo**. Following that, it only remains to find out which of next week's releases reminds Producer Rob of Five Nights at Freddy's.

 200: Eclectica - 200th Episode! | File Type: audio/mpeg | Duration: 4238

**Episode 200 - Tiny Jack Nicholson in my Pocket** Things have been pretty harmonious in Eclecticaville for - blimey! - 200 episodes, so why not risk a ruck for this special edition where the team review each other's favourite movies? First up, road movie hater Rob takes a look at Aidan's beloved **The Last Detail**, by Hal Ashby. Then the favour is returned as Aidan checks out Rob's pick **Shock Corridor**, by Sam Fuller. In the second half of the show, Producer Rob comes back on to challenge anime dunce Graham to watch Satoshi Kon's **Millennium Actress**, before subjecting himself to Graham's East European obsession **Daisies**, by Vera Chytilova. We'll be back next week with the show as normal - assuming we all survive this one… If you like the podcast, send us some support by visiting **[The Geek Show](http://www.thegeekshow.co.uk)** and clicking on The Geek Shop tab.

 199: Electica 199 - US + Black Horror Special | File Type: audio/mpeg | Duration: 5070

**George Clinton's Funky Disembodied Head** Sick of articles and YouTube nonsense that describe what movies mean? Well, you'll get none of that here as, instead of all that nonsense, we dig into what could be the highlight of 2019's horror calendar - Jordan Peele's sophomore feature, "Us". In the second half of the show we have our very own black horror special with a little bit of backbone provided by the excellent Shudder documentary "Horror Noire: A History of Black Horror". We cover the classics with "Blacula", funkadelic oddities with "Cosmic Slop", and there's also the ... erm ... yeah ... that with "Leprechaun In The Hood" before finishing on the recently rediscovered classic that is "Tales From The Hood".  Next week is the big 200\.

 198: Eclectica 198 - Under the Silver Lake + What Men Want + Next of Kin + Wheels on Meals | File Type: audio/mpeg | Duration: 4006

**Stoner's Guide to Super-Vacuity** A series of inscrutable clues leads Ryan, Graham, Sarah and Aidan to "Under the Silver Lake", a film that makes you suspect David Robert Mitchell was definitely one of those kids who played with secret decoder rings as a child. Prepare for disagreements.  Off the Shelf kicks off with a very different new release - Adam Shankman's remake (or reboot, or de-Gibsoning), "What Men Want", followed by the Ozsploitation landmark "Next of Kin" - which has been newly released by Second Sight. There isn't a better way to close an episode than with some Jackie Chan, and Eureka have delivered the goods. Anyone fancy some "Wheels on Meals"?

 197: Eclectica 197 - Captain Marvel + Human Desire + Hellfest + Crucible of the Vampire | File Type: audio/mpeg | Duration: 4722

**The Mean Streets of Micheal Portillo** This week, Andrew, Mick and Rob witness the birth of … (hang on because we're pretty sure we can do that trailer thing in text) … a/ HER \o with "Captain Marvel". As far as we're concerned Brie Larson has always been our captain, but what about the rest of the film? Mark is also here for a look at how the actual '90s treated women in superhero movies. Apres Marvel it's Off the Shelf, with Andrew finding the unexpected Fritz Lang-Michael Portillo link in Eureka's Blu-Ray release of "Human Desire", Rob getting into the carnival spirit of Lionsgate's "Hell Fest", and Mick unexpectedly finding an explanation of Brexit in Screenbound's new British Gothic horror "Crucible of the Vampire". It's almost too much fun!  Don't worry. We'll correct that next week.

 196: Eclectica 196 - Ring (1998) + Dr Jekyll & Miss Obsourne + Ray & Liz | File Type: audio/mpeg | Duration: 3867

**Bathtime for Udo** Last week Rob and Graham received a mystery phone call asking them to review Hideo Nakata's "Ring". They're not dead yet, and although the news that this is a twentieth anniversary reissue is making them feel incredibly old they still have to find out if the film still holds up. After that it's Off the Shelf, which sees Graham challenging Rob to watch the Victorian phallic lunacy of Walerian Borowczyk's "The Strange Case of Dr Jekyll and Miss Osbourne", then Graham gets acquainted with Richard Billingham's "Ray & Liz" before looking ahead to next week's releases.  Stay tuned for news of Indiana Jones's drunkest adventure yet! **If you like the podcast, send us some support by visiting [The Geek Show](http://thegeekshow.co.uk) and clicking on The Geek Shop tab.

 195: Eclectica 195 - Jacques Rivette + World on a Wire + Class of 1999 | File Type: audio/mpeg | Duration: 3768

**Algebra Lessons with Foxy Brown** It's the biggest week of the film calendar, so Aidan and Rob fulfill their obligations with a bit of an Oscars chatter before getting to the important matter of being bamboozled by the Film of the Week which, thanks to the Directors Lottery coming up with Jacques Rivette, means in their infinite wisdom they decided to fumble around with "Le Pont du Nord".  After that it's on to more solid ground with Rainer Werner Fassbinder's 4 hour long TV movie "World on a Wire". Sarcasm! We're certainly cycling uphill this week, and since that's the case what better way to end the show than with the maximalist nonsense of studio-led exploitation in "Class of 1999" (it's an odd week, alright). Oh look! Lady Gaga!  **If you like the podcast, send us some support by visiting [The Geek Show](http://www.thegeekshow.co.uk) and clicking on The Geek Shop tab.

 194: Eclectica 194 - The Kid Who Would be King + Dawson City Frozen Time + Evil Dead II | File Type: audio/mpeg | Duration: 3747

**COME SEE THE MASTODON PARADE!** Eclectica is back with "The Kid Who Would Be King" - the latest film from Joe Cornish, and in a strange turn of events, Graham and Tim's review features very few references to Adam and Joe.  We're sorry. We'll try and make up for it when we do a Jacques Rivette film next week. After that it's our usual Off the Shelf section, which features Second Run's release of Bill Morrison's "Dawson City Frozen Time" - a film that's as much fun to watch as it is to say, and StudioCanal's reissue of the inimitable "Evil Dead 2". Don't worry, we're not the sort of hacks who are going to end the review by saying "Groovy" as we saved that for the show description.  Groovy.

 193: Eclectica 193 - If Beale Street Could Talk + Before We Vanish + Men, Women and Children | File Type: audio/mpeg | Duration: 4389

**The John Entwistle of J-Horror** Two beams of refracted "Moonlight": the Best Picture-winning (eventually) film's writer Tarell Alvin McRaney has a new film on Netflix, "High Flying Bird", which Mark takes a look at before Aidan, Tim and Graham check out director Barry Jenkins's new work "If Beale Street Could Talk". Meanwhile, Off the Shelf has Aidan possessed by the unearthly mind of Kiyoshi Kurosawa in Arrow Films's Blu-Ray of his SF weirdie "Before We Vanish", after which Graham inexplicably decides to watch the film that nearly derailed Jason Reitman's career, the reefer madness for the Snapchat age that is "Men, Women and Children".

 192: Eclectica 192 - Burning + Velvet Buzzsaw + Berserk! | File Type: audio/mpeg | Duration: 4332

**Bring Out the Two Men in the Elephant Costume!** Your "Burning" desire to hear a review of the new Lee Chang-Dong film can finally be satiated, as Rob, Graham and Tim take on the adaptation of a Haruki Murakami short story is our Film Of The Week.  Capital O-Opinions will be had. Tim kicks off our Off the Shelf section with a new Netflix release - Tony Gilroy's arts-world horror "Velvet Buzzsaw" - which is basically a Vincent Price movie with Jake Gyllenhaal. Is it better? Worse? The same, but in a different way?  After that it's time for Graham to take on BFI's re-issue of "Rogue Male" (starring Peter O'Toole), and then it's time for Rob to spends some time at the circus with Indicator's vintage slice of Joan Crawfordsploitation - "Berserk".  Burning Berserk Rogue Buzzsaw! We're pretty sure that's an early Wild Beasts song. If you liked the show and want to see it continue then you can help in a number of ways. You can share us with your movie friends, give us a rating or review on wherever you get your podcasts or share us with your friends.

 191: Eclectica 191 - Destroyer + True Stories + Gallivant + Oscars 2019 Chat | File Type: audio/mpeg | Duration: 3643

**Deep Purple's Oscar Beef** Burnt-out, scrappy-haired and squinting through an agonising hangover - but that's enough about Graham and Aidan as they've got to discuss Nicole Kidman's transformative turn in Karyn Kusama's grittier-than-thou cop thriller "Destroyer". Does it pack the same tooth-loosening impact as the butt of Kidman's gun? After some discussion of the most superhero-packed set of Oscar nominations in history (primary competition for this title: none), it's time for Off the Shelf - which is a bit of a weirdo road-trip this week. First there's Graham, who finds plenty to sing about in Criterion's new Blu-Ray of David Byrne's "True Stories", and that's closely followed by Aidan who has set out his deckchair especially for Andrew Kotting's seaside travelogue "Gallivant".  Hop aboard our cinematic campervan, why don't you?

 190: Eclectica 190 - Glass + Panique + Zotz + Diamonds of the Night | File Type: audio/mpeg | Duration: 4124

**Silent Power, Noisy Door** He's been to Director's Jail, served his Director's Probation, and is now worryingly close to being a repeat offender (according to Mick, Graham and Aidan that is). It's M. Night Shyamalan, whose trilogy-capper "Glass" is put under the magnifying lens as our Film of the Week. A packed Off the Shelf sees Aidan stalking a highly desirable object in the form of Criterion's new Blu-ray release of the Michel Simon vehicle "Panique", before Graham breaks the silence around Second Run's new edition of the late Jan Nemec's "Diamonds of the Night". Finally, Mick points us towards Indicator's new release of William Castle's "Zotz!".  What is "Zotz!", you ask? It's hard to explain, but impossible to stop saying.

 189: Eclectica 189 - Dog Days + The Favourite + Colette | File Type: audio/mpeg | Duration: 3737

**New Queen, Who Dis?** Eclectica is back in 2019 for an Oscar season like no other. There's a film about a famous author and one about a British monarch, but this time the more literary of the two sees Keira Knightley putting the bi in biopic for our film of the week "Colette". As for the royal film, well ... it's a Yorgos Lanthimos joint - which Graham discovers when he tackles "The Favourite".  After that things take a sharp left turn as Sarah looks at Icon Films' new release "Dog Days", which is about dogs and takes place over several days.
