"What you are about to see...is a REAL THING!" Indeed. Welcome to this latest episode of Cinepod MovieCast we look at two iconic cult films: Paul Verhoeven's "Showgirls" and John Waters' "Pink Flamingos." This was José's first time seeing the Verhoeven film, and it was my first time seeing the Waters film. For me, "Pink Flamingos" had been on my radar for over 20 years, but I avoided it because of what I had heard about the ending. As for José, he gets a bit of insight into how Elizabeth Berkley went from "Saved by the Bell" to a starring role in what had been rumored to be Hollywood's first mainstream soft core porno film. Join us for an experience in cinematic bad taste! -- Chuck
