Episode 3: Requiem for a Dream

Hi Movie Geeks, I haven’t had the chance to see any movies this past weekend. I have a lot of catching up to do. I did however manage to record and post another episode of Movie Geek & Proud. Give it a listen. It’s a episode of appreciation on cinematography and music. My friend Shawn and I also discuss the latest Venom Trailer and also how we enjoyed the British horror movie Ghost Stories. We also talk about the unsettling movies that we can’t watch twice. I hope you enjoy Episode 3 and comment your thoughts on the film and this episode. 

Remember to subscribe, rate, and comment on the app you are listening to this episode and share with those you may think will enjoy this show. I do plan on seeing some movies this weekend so more reviews on this blog on the way.

Question of the Week #3

Movie Geeks, there are just some movies out there that are just so out there, so crazy, so unsettling that you can’t bring yourself to watch again. Not even on a bet is it worth watching because the movie just leave a horrible taste in your mouth and a bad feeling in your stomach.

This week’s “question of the week” has to do with just that:

Can you tell what movie that is from the image in the background? That is a hint as to what I will be covering for Episode 3. Comment your answer below and tune in Wednesday for the next episode. Also feel free to answer the previous questions even though the week has passed. I want to know more about the people who follow the blog and the podcast. 

Thanks for checking out this post. 

Double Take: Requiem For a Dream

Purple in the morning, Blue in the afternoon, Orange in the evening, and Green at night.

What I remember from this movie is that it was very dark. Deep emotions and hard to watch scenes guided this movie that gave me an unsettling feeling. From a third person movie perspective. Darren Aronofsky created a realistic take on the additions of drugs and other emotions that plague us and can lead us down a dark path. I was about 19 almost 20 yrs old when I first saw this film. Just starting to be out on my own but still unaware of what drugs did to a person. So this movie was very eye opening for me. I picked this movie because now that I am older and also on my own taking care of myself, I wanted to see if I would react the same or more connected to the movie.
