Mediatrocities #13: TyPi’s Top Films of 2014; Netflix as a Video Store; and the Lost Superstardom of TV’s Dagmar

Here we are, at it again! TyPi, Mountain Drew and Legendary Lew get to yappin’ in the latest installment of Mediatrocities, the podcast of The Underground Multiplex.

TyPi comes forward with his list of what he felt were the best films of 2014. With the Razzies and Oscars winners about to be announced, it’s a good reminder of the movies we should find time for, especially with releases on DVD.

All three get into the next topic–what if Netflix was a brick-and-mortar video store. It doesn’t look good for the international internet giant from our eyes. Is Netflix exacerbating a movie drought for cinephiles already hit from the closing of Blockbuster Video and indie video stores?

Finally, Legendary Lew introduces viewers to TV’s first self-created female superstar, Dagmar. In the early 1950s, her popularity was greater than even Frank Sinatra’s, whose career was hampered by declining record sales, a tumultuous marriage to Ava Gardner, and a failed TV series. Listen in and find out all about this important, groundbreaking celebrity.

As always, this podcast is NSFW.
