On this weeks episode of WatchThis W/RickRamos, WatchThis fans welcome Mike Black back to The Fortress of Ultimate Darkness to discuss one of the greatest filmmakers of all time, Mr. Martin Scorsese. Mr. Scorsese turned 74 this past November 17th so Mike & I thought it would be only right to discuss his career, his importance as a filmmaker, and his importance in each of our lives. As always, talking film always causes you to spiral in many directions and that is exactly where we find ourselves. We talk Tarantino, Tower Records, and - of course - The Election (hopefully for the last time). As always, Thanks for you continued support.

On this weeks episode of WatchThis W/Rick Ramos I welcome good friend - and WatchThis Audience Favorite - Ibrahim Chavez back to The Fortress of Ultimate Darkness. We sit down and talk a decade that (as time has begun to prove) is a time in cinema that is quickly being recognized as the last great period of American filmmaking - The 1990's. We begin with a brief discussion of the Presidential Election, quickly easing into the thing that drives us most . . . Cinema. We both choose a film that we view as significant to The Decade - Mine being David Fincher's Seven, His being Oliver Stone's Natural Born Killers. To do this episode correctly takes perspective and we break down the events and moods that formed this great decade of filmmaking. As always, we thank you for your support.
