It was too weird to be a blockbuster and too blockbuster to be a weirdo independent film.  Dune's lasting legacy, however, is it spurred David Lynch on to go make the movies he was always meant to make. Gritty, weird neo-noir films starring Kyle MacLaughlin. How in failing on such a large scale led to maybe his best movie ... Blue Velvet. Enjoy the show!

  • Netflix and the vanishing of the B movie experience

    30 DIC. 2023 · Netflix has been an issue in Hollywood. On the latest GenX Show Jeff talks about the history of B Movies, their evolution, and how Netflix (specifically) has hollowed out the 'bread and butter' B movies that sustained Hollywood. It's not that people don't go to movie theaters anymore (which is sorta true) it's that what's available on streaming is either big budget extravaganzas or utter crap C movies. Like the analytics boom in the NBA hollowed out the mid-range, the advent of analytic driven streaming has hollowed out the middle in Hollyood. The great B movie decline. Hope you enjoy the show and Happy New Year!
