Nathan Rabin's Happy Cast #33 - Bea Wildering, Jedi Master (with Eric Szyszka)


Grab some tiramisu and your favorite comic books, because for this Happy Cast we’re going spelunking down the deep, twisty well that is M. Night Shyamalan’s mind! Eric Szyszka of We Hate Movies returns once again to talk about the ego, ambition and incredible weirdness of Night’s work - whether he’s poorly deconstructing superhero movies or grossly mishandling the ecological disaster movie.

Also, we take a look at another overly-confident, fascinating figure = Fyre Festival fraudster Billy McFarland - through the lens of Netflix and Hulu’s recent docs on the subject. Plus mail, podcast recommendations and more!
