"THE BONES OF THE HOMELESS" by Judy Joy Jones http://www.amazon.com/The-Bones-Of-Homeless/dp/0977367649/ref=sr_1_2?ie=UTF8&qid=1380200911&sr=8-2&keywords=the+bones+of+the+homeless
Film critic Mack Bates and host Betty Jo Tucker review two new Susan Sarandon films -- The Last of Robin Hood and The Calling. Scott Abramovitch, who wrote the screenplay for The Calling, plans to join the discussion, and Richard Glatzer, director/writer of The Last of Robin Hood, has been invited to call in.
The Last of Robin Hood follows Errol Flynn's scandalous affair with a star-struck teenager during the late 1950s. Cast members include Kevin Kline, Dakota Fanning and Susan Sarandon. This intriguing movie deals with the desire for fame and the high price it exacts. Kline plays Flynn; Fanning portrays the somewhat naive teen; and Sarandon is her fame-obsessed mother.
In The Calling, a mysterious and suspenseful thriller, Sarandon portrays a world-weary detective trying to solve a series of gruesome murders. With these two very different roles, this talented Oscar-winning actress again proves her versatility.
An avid Sarandon fan, Mack Bates conducted an in-depth interview with Sarandon a few years ago for The Leader, a University of Wisconsin student newspaper. He also contributed to Tucker's book about Sarandon (Susan Sarandon: A True Maverick) and now writes for the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel. He also serves as a staff blogger for Milwaukee Magazine's official film blog.

Award-winning actress Tippi Hedren talks about her scary experiences while filming The Birds, one of Alfred Hitchcock's classic thrillers. Tippi earned a Golden Globe for her terrific performance in this movie. During her candid interview, Tippi also reminisces about playing opposite Sean Connery in Hitchcock's Marnie. Among Tippi's non-Hitchcock films are such offerings as Charlie Chaplin's The Countess from Hong Kong, I Heart Huckabees, Pacific Heights, Jane Mansfield's Car and Roar, a movie she produced and starred in with her daughter Melanie Griffith. She has also appeared in numerous TV shows.
As an avid supporter of animal rights, Tippi is involved in the ROAR Foundation and the Shambala Preserve. She has received many awards for her humanitarain efforts, including the Bahai Faith Humanitarian Award and a "Women of Vision" Honor from Women in Film and Video.
Film critics Nell Minow, the famous Movie Mom, and A.J. Hakari, the Mad Movie Man, square off about which movie creatures are the most entertaining during this annual "Monsters vs. Aliens" episode. Nell and A.J. are both respected film critics who pull no punches where movies are concerned, so listeners are in for some pre-Halloween fun! Nell is the author of several film-related books and writes film commentary for Beliefnet.com. She has been featured in such publications as USA Today and The New York Times. A.J. is a horror expert who has contributed reviews to Terror Tube, Classic Movie Guide, ReelTalk Movie Reviews and various other sites, including his own popular CineSlice Blog.
Award-winning actor Barry Bostwick reminisces about The Rocky Horror Picture Show in this annual October tribute to that bizarre cult classic. Bostwick speaks candidly about his experience while making the film -- including weather problems, what it was like working with Susan Sarandon, his favorite scenes in the movie, and much more.
Boasting credits in over 100 films and TV productions, Bostwick may be best-known as the clueless mayor on Spin City, but he's a triple-threat entertainer -- singer, dancer, actor -- who created the role of Danny Zuko in Grease on Broadway and won a Tony for his work in The Robber Bridegroom. He's also a Golden Globe winner for his performance in TV's War and Remembrance. Among Bostwick's many films are: Movie, Movie; 101 Dalmations II; Spy Hard; Some Guy Who Kills People; and FDR: American Badass! His upcoming movies include Slay Bells, a horror flick in which he plays Santa, as well as the comedy Diani & Devine Meet the Apocalypse.
Although The Rocky Horror Picture Show bombed when it first opened in 1975, entertaining midnight showings soon catapulted the film into cult status. And the movie got a big boost when TV's Glee featured its own version of the outrageous musical numbers.
Host Betty Jo Tucker rants and raves about the new Godzilla movie. Is this film a hit or a miss? How does it compare with previous Godzilla offerings? What are the most exciting elements of Godzilla 2014? What could have been done better? Why is Godzilla so popular? Tune in and find out! Comedian Nancy Lombardo and producer Nikki Starr join in the fun.
Called King of the Monsters, Godzilla (Gojira) has been stomping around the screen for 60 years. Appearing first in Ishiro Honda’s 1954 Japanese film, this massive creature has become a pop culture icon with 28 films about him produced by the Toho Company. In 1998, Tri-Star released another Godzilla movie to mixed reviews, but Godzilla 2014 – presented by Warner Bros. and Legendary Pictures -- is receiving mostly rave reviews.
During the live show, listeners are invited to call in and to participate in a chat. An archived segment will also be available.
