Awards Radar Podcast #161: It’s the 2023 Halloween Spooktacular with Joey, Myles, and Kendall!

Welcome back to the Awards Radar Podcast. In each episode, Editor Joey Magidson (that’s me!) will be joined by some of the staff of Awards Radar to talk about the latest in film, television, and entertainment in general. The show will obviously have an awards season slant to it, but we won’t forget about other movies and shows, that’s for sure!

For episode 161, I’m joined once again by my co-host Myles Hughes (Steve Prusakowski continues behind the scenes as producer and technical guru), alongside a returning Kendall Tinston. As always, if Kendall is here, horror is on the docket. Today is out Halloween spooktacular, where we wrap up Myles’ 31 Days of Halloween / Horror marathon, including a discussion of It Follows, which is getting a sequel. There’s also some Five Nights at Freddy’s chatter, which Kendall loved, but I did not (my review is here), as well as Anatomy of a Fall (raved about by yours truly here), alongside David Fincher‘s The Killer (likewise a rave here). Plus, we finish with a spooky trivia game!

As always my friends and faithful listeners/readers, I do hope you all enjoy the latest episode of the Awards Radar Podcast, our 161st one to date (here’s to many more). Of course, feel free to revisit the previous installments by clicking the Podcast tab (here) on the top of the page. Plus, listen to us on Apple Podcasts (iTunes), Spotify, and other platforms. More to come each and every single week, so from the bottom of my heart, thank you for listening!

Great job as always! I asked this with PTA and Tarantino earlier this year after I realized they both have made 9 films. Thank you for doing answering. After just seeing The Killer and noticing Fincher and Nolan also have made the same amount of movies I figured it’s another good question. I find the development of directors fascinating and enjoy comparing. But pretty simple, who wins the most? Mine are in () but I’m sure everyone will be more interested in yours. I was 7-5 Fincher…some are very close.

  1. Alien 3 vs Following (Close for bad reasons…Fincher)
  2. Seven vs Memento (Close…Fincher)
  3. The Game vs Insomnia (Close…Nolan)
  4. Fight Club vs Batmas Begins (Fincher)
  5. Panic Room vs The Prestige (Nolan)
  6. Zodiac vs The Dark Knight (Closest…Nolan)
  7. Curious Case… vs Inception (Nolan…biggest blow out)
  8. Social Network vs Dark Knight Rises (Fincher)
  9. Girl with the Dragon Tattoo vs Intersteller (Fincher…sorry Joey)
  10. Gone Girl vs Dunkirk (Close…Fincher)
  11. Mank vs Tenet (Fincher)
  12. The Killer vs Oppenheimer (Closer than I thought it would be…Nolan)
