SHOWNOTES: Thank you Collateral Cinephiles for an absolutely fun and successful second season! We're happy to celebrate it with our finale episode on a cult classic very near and dear to our hearts: The Princess Bride! Featuring for the first time on the show our friend and fellow movie fan Megan Price, we analyze the massive impact of this culturally and memetically significant film, itself a member of both the Criterion Collection and National Film Registry. Adapted from the 1973 novel of the same name, The Princess Bride also leaves much for us to discuss in its unforgettable cast of characters; many, many memorable quotes; well-done use of a frame narrative; and fairy tale plot style. We felt this movie was the perfect send-off for an incredible season, and we hope you'll share our excitement for both the film and our podcast! Look forward to our interim bonus episodes (to be announced) and Collateral Cinema Season Three—starting with the divisive Suicide Squad this October!
