What is Jive Talkin'? w/ film critic & Christmas movie expert Alonso Duralde
Release Date: 11/30/2014
This week, Dennis welcomes film critic Alonso Duralde to the booth o' truth to discuss Alonso's oh-so-timely book "Have Yourself a Movie Little Christmas," a book all about Christmas movies; some great, some awful, classics and some you've probably never heard of. Alonso talks about reviewing movies for The Wrap and What the Flick?, what it's like to co-host a movie review podcast with your husband (check out Alonso and Dave White's "Linoleum Knife" podcast), teaches college students about film and the moment at Sundance he almost said "Screw movies" and explored another line of work. Also on the agenda: when, how and why Alonso fell in love with movies, the classic he doesn't care for, the movie he wishes he could add to his 2005 book "101 Must-See Movies for Gay Men" and how "Defending Your Life" and "Groundhog Day" totally changed his life.
