On this week’s episode of the Movie Homework Podcast! In the opening segment Mariam discusses her experiences of re-watching the 1999 science fiction classic The Matrix, which she hadn’t seen since its video release. Meanwhile Ari talks about the just-released teen sensation The Hunger Games, which he saw in a screening packed with screaming teens.
The first piece of homework in the episode is Mariam’s pick for Ari, the British realist drama Fish Tank from director Andrea Arnold. The 2009 film tells the story of a teen girl and her relationship with her mother’s new boyfriend, played by Michael Fassbender.
Ari’s pick for Mariam was the decidedly more extravagant film Tommy from director Ken Russell. The 1975 rock musical is based on The Who’s rock opera of the same name, and stars Roger Daltrey, Ann-Margret, Oliver Reed and The Who and features guest appearances by Elton John, Tina Turner, Eric Clapton and Jack Nicholson.
