Eclectica 185 - The Ballad of Buster Scruggs + The Wrong Box + Gosford Park

Nov 21, 2018, 05:30 PM

The Crumbs of Grimsby

It was a dark and stormy night, which explains why we all stayed indoors to watch "The Ballad of Buster Scruggs" rather than going out to see the latest addition to the Potter-verse or whatever it's called. Mark's handling that one, so Rob and Graham are forced to check out the Coen brothers' portmanteau Western. 

That's right, forced! Which film critic worth their salt would choose a film by the Coen Brothers over yet another addition to Harry Potter universe? 

After that it's Off the Shelf, which this week has Rob tackling an all-star British comedy from the director of The Stepford Wives with Indicator's blu-ray release of "The Wrong Box". It's then time for Graham to settle down with the other half of equity in Robert Altman's "Gosford Park", which is available now from Arrow Academy. 

It's still raining out there, but don't worry - we could be back on Netflix next week ...
