PC Movie Club
About This Show
PC Movie Club is a club about movies with 'PC' in front of it. But in reality it’s just an excuse for Aharon Pelz and his mother Liisa to talk about their life long passion.
Movie topics vary from old to new, depending on what is in the theater or if Liisa can get the dvd from the library.
Themes and concepts are analyzed all the while finding connections from in and outside the movie world. But usually they are just about a mother and son trying not to argue about the movies they saw.
Most Recent Episode
Episode 37 - Arrival
Me and my mother have had an interesting history in following Denis Villeneuve's career so far. We had our first debate on his merits all the way back on our first episode and we settled some thoughts after seeing Sicario. And our stakes for him . as a filmmaker would just get higher for his first science fiction film.
So finally our episode on Arrival is ready. We recorded this way back in January, but took a long break from our podcast and it stood on the shelf so to speak. This is good to keep in mind, because the time period is relevant to some of our topics.
My mother is notably not a real sci-fi lover, so we go into how did this movie did the science fiction genre right for her. We talk about the original short story by Ted Chiang, dwell in the themes of the story and in general explore the masterful cinematic filmmaking.
Spoilers: I would highly recommend seeing Arrival without knowing anything about it. So due watch it first before listening.
