Welcome to Hollywood… or perhaps Hell. This is wrapping up the trilogy of detective movies that was planned albeit a little late. Kiss Kiss Bang Bang is a fun postmodern noir/pulp starring Robert Downey Jr., Val Kilmer, and Michelle Monaghan which was written and directed by (in)famous Shane Black.

After recording I realized that I never got around to addressing the discussion that Harry has with Harmony about what type of guys she hangs around with and what type of girl she is. It was interesting to see that discussion framed in a 2005 perspective of there being a definitive “right” or “wrong” way to be with regards to sex however this was coming from a liar and a thief so maybe that was the joke? It’s definitely a position to take but I can’t imagine it being played quite that straight with the other things happening in that space.

If you don’t get to the end of the episode but you’re reading this (weird, right?) then I’ll point out that the podcast will be taking a hiatus. I hope to reevaluate the release schedule and the scope of things to accommodate all of the things that I want in my life but that will remain to be seen.

Thanks for listening and as always you can reach me @coolmarkd on Twitter.
