@GoodRobotAndys The name comes from a record store chain that was active in the Los Angeles area at the time. Still very random, but it's supposed to give a "1970s California" feeling, I guess.

@GoodRobotAndys Nice podcast! I thought that Licorice Pizza was pleasant. Not award-worthy but definitely worth a rewatch sometime. The episodic structure and the setting reminded me of Once Upon a Time in Hollywood, the vibe seemed similar. If you hated that one you're unlikely to enjoy LP either.

Some people paid a lot of attention to the age gap. But it felt tacked at the beginning while being barely visible in the rest of the movie, something which is helped by characterisation (Gary is at school in the first scene but spends the rest of the movie going out for drinks or managing a business; he is also very confident with all kinds of people, shows initiative, and already makes a fair bit of money, while Alana is in a dead end).

Discussion (with spoilers) of Licorice Pizza. Andy B pretty much nails his prediction that it's a cooky period coming-of-age comedy, but then what else does Andy C watch these days anyway?

artificialworlds.net/goodrobot

Discussion (with spoilers) of First Cow. Andy B yet again guesses it's a rollicking Disney adventure, but Andy C explains it's a pleasurable Slow Cinema ride through an authentic-feeling historical Oregon.

s09e10 Censor – The Good Robot Andys

artificialworlds.net/goodrobot

Discussion (with spoilers) of Censor. Andy B thinks it's an adult animation about two losers who go viral, but Andy C explains it's a British psychological horrow that starts off in the real world of the BBFC offices, and ends up in a weird fantasy/exploitation movie scenario.

Discussion (with spoilers) of "In the Earth". Andy B thinks it's a mockumentary about worms, but Andy C explains it's an excellent folk horror with foot grue. And maybe it says something about our fearful relationship with nature.
