North (1994) flopped. No one ever said, "One for North, please!" North what? It's a boy's name? And the boy divorces his parents and travels the world to find new parents? And Bruce Willis plays the Easter Bunny? Those were the Four Questions that guest Danny Dechi and I asked as we watched this on Easter Sunday.

The premise of this podcast is to watch cult movies I've read about. The late Roger Ebert gave North such a toxic review  that he quoted his own review for the title for his one-note collection of bad movie reviews, I Hated, Hated, Hated This Movie.

Speaking of Quentin Tarantino movies, Quentin Tarantino directed a short film back when rockabilly bars were a thing. A chunk remains of My Best Friend's Birthday (1987). A talkative DJ (Tarantino) talks about music, does coke, talks about music, and hires a prostitute as a birthday present for his best friend. We never finished it, but it's posted after the break.
