Lauren Bacall Tribute Podcast – “Howl’s Moving Castle (2004)”

On a very special podcast, David Stark and I discuss what is, to my knowledge, Lauren Bacall‘s only venture into SF and Fantasy film – the Hayao Miyazaki’s 2004 animated film Howl’s Moving Castle, and its English Dub, featuring Lauren Bacall as The Witch of the Waste. Download the podcast here.

Note: One point I forgot to mention on the podcast – the film was originally slated to be directed by Mamoru Hosoda, who has directed two SF films which we’ll be discussing later on the GSSFT Podcasts – Summer Wars, and The Girl Who Leapt Through Time, before Hosada was removed from the project and Miyazaki took over.

“Cowboy Bebop: The Movie” – Greatest Science Fiction Film Tournament Podcast

The latest in our series of Greatest Science Fiction Film Tournament podcasts is now available here. Unlike previous podcasts, this one is a “pitch” program, in which Alex expounds on the virtues of Cowboy Bebop: The Movie, making a case for me to watch it. Largely because of this different format, the podcast is actually shorter than the movie itself for the first time in this series.
