On episode 13 of Mixed Media: Dallas-born movie star Owen Wilson is taking his career down a new path in No Escape, a movie that Wilson says being a father helped define. We talk about it all with writer Michael Granberry, who profiles the actor in this Sunday's Dallas Morning News. Next, the epic music documentary trilogy, The Decline of the Western Civilization, screens this weekend at the Texas Theatre with director Penelope Spheeris in attendance. We'll discuss the impact of these three films, shot between 1979 and 1998, with FD magazine digital editor, Christopher Mosley, who credits them with inspiring his early freelance work in music journalism. Finally, obsessed fans of the 2001 cult classic film, Wet Hot American Summer, finally got their long awaited follow-up when Netflix recently released the TV series prequel: Wet Hot American Summer: First Day of Camp. Was it worth reviving? GuideLive.com editor Amanda Wilkins joins us to talk about it. We'll also consider other summer camp films and share our own memories of attending — or perhaps avoiding — camp.
