New podcast appearance: The ’00s Zone

You may know Mark Palermo as the screenwriter of DETENTION (Joseph Kahn one, not Dolph one) or as a thoughtful commenter around here for many years. It turns out he’s also a podcaster. Mark and actress/filmmaker Loretta Yu host The ’00s Zone (pronounced like “ozone”), looking back at movies from the ’00s. And they were kind enough to invite me for their episode looking back at THE MATRIX RELOADED and THE MATRIX REVOLUTIONS.

I had a great time talking raves and Sentinels with Mark, Loretta and fellow guest Riley, and having listened to a couple episodes for preparation (I chose the ROMEO MUST DIE and CROUCHING TIGER HIDDEN DRAGON two-parter) I can vouch for this as a smart podcast offering a different perspective on these movies than any of the other ones I listen to. I’m going to check out some more.

Please enjoy this episode and let me know what you think, but don’t exhaust your MATRIX talk since, as teased at the end of the episode, I’ll finally be reviewing the whole series (so far) next week.

  1. Thanks for that write-up Vern! It was awesome having you on. I think there’s about to be a lot of cultural reappraisal of these movies. I’m looking forward to your Matrix series reviews, and also seeing if everyone’s predictions for RESURRECTIONS come true.

  2. I thought this was a Black Leone western. Really nailed it.

  3. Oops that was for the Harder They Fall thread. But maybe Resurrections will really surprise us!

  4. Defo giving this a listen. I’ve subscribed to the last two podcasts you’ve been on, and TSIKU is maybe my favourite film podcast of the dozen or so I subscribe to. Will you be back on there at some point Vern?

  5. 9:35PM: Vern-I thought that Rave scene was hot as fuck

    9:36PM: Vern officially enters my Cool Book:-)

  6. Rosscoe – I would love to. I could probly bug them about it. It would have to be when I have time to watch three suspense thrillers though. I guess I did watch four movies to prepare for this one.

  7. KayKay – I don’t think I said that but I won’t dispute it.

  8. Loving it so far .
