Movie Geeks United!, the most popular movie-themed podcast on the internet, is hosting “The Kubrick Series”, an in-depth 8-part podcast series premiering Sunday, December 5th, and available for replay and download immediately following each live airing.


Movie Geeks United! have done numerous excellent podcasts in the past, but never with such an impressive line up of guests. Authors Vincent LoBrutto, Ed Sikov, Randy Rasmussen and Mario Falsetto will be attending, as will producer/director James B. Harris, Altman and Kubrick favourite Mathew Modine, director Peter Hyams, actor Shane Rimmer and Moonwatcher himself, Dan Richter.


BUT that’s not all.  The Movie Geeks have also lined up Richard Anderson, Erich Feursten, Allen Daviau, Curtis Tsui, Stuart Y. McDougal, Andy Anderson, Garret Brown AND Brian Cook! Critic Keith Uhlich is also stopping by, as well as Lord Bullington himself (Leon Vitali), specifically for your satisfaction.


So bookmark your diaries and tune in live. If you can't make it, all shows will be available for download at the Movie Geeks United! website, which can be accessed by clicking on any banner on this page.


A personal thanks to the Movie Geeks United! crew (Jamey Duvall, Jerry Dennis, Chris Whetton, Aaron Aradillas and company) for setting up "The Kubrick Series".

November 26th: It is my intention to do several major updates on this site over the next few months. I'm very busy with several architecture projects, so expect this updating process to procede very slowly. The first new updates should be about the "palindrome" structure of "The Shining" (ie, the recent "theories" that the film can be watched backwards)


Until the updates roll out, here are a couple videos that fans may find interesting:


The presence of "Carson City" and "Summer of 42" in "The Shining" will be discussed at a later date.
