Cinecast Episode 172 – pixaR

 
So sedate you could get a lullaby out its dulcet tones, this episode of the Cinecast has the podcasting players considering death and slavery and obsolescence (and Easter Eggs) in the wake of Toy Story 3. (*SPOILERS*) Gamble comes up with his best idea yet: A hard “R” Pixar animated film. The debate ensues whether it should be an adaptation (Watership Down or Animal Farm?) or a straight up original War film a la CatShit1. I hope Emeryville is listening. Jonah Hex is thrown to the wolves – particularly for wasting such an interesting supporting cast. James Mangold’s star vehicle Knight and Day is previewed as being a fun popcorn flick with a saggy final act. Also Day & Night, the Pixar short, (but not Day For Night the Truffaut film or the Curitz film Day and Night or terrorist bombing flick Day Night Day Night) is talked about, confused yet? Andrew takes back his love for Public Enemies and lavishes it instead on Soderbergh & Damon’s pontificating corporate shlub in The Informant. He is diggin naked running men and gory kills from the natives in the Criterion release of Naked Prey. Kurt finally finds a fairly consistent stretch of Lost (Season 3.5 *SPOILERS*) and is in danger of flirting with satisfaction in the show which is eating up ridiculous amounts of his time. Finally, we attempt reader mail to mixed results.

As always, please join the conversation by leaving your own thoughts in the comment section below and again, thanks for listening!

I haven't finished this episode yet but I just finished the last one. Big thanks to Matt Gamble for the shout out. Be careful what you wish for, you'd be surprised how many free books you'd have to hand out by giving people the chance to call me a rotting C muscle.

I haven't seen The Karate Kid remake yet, but I think Gamble gives the Mr. Miyagi drunk scene in the first one a little too much credit. It's pretty cheesy. Also, he claims it's "at least 20 minutes long". For the record, it's barely over six minutes. Oh that crazy Matt!

Haven't listened yet, either, but I just found out that the Cinefamily rep cinema is playing Le combat dans l'ile in like two weeks. It's so weird how I hear about random movies from you guys, and then suddenly have the chance to see them pretty quickly, in proper filmgoing conditions. Also, whoa, this must've been a crap day for DVDs. No one was willing to put out for the Star is Born blu-ray? I'd pick that one.

You say this as if you don't know that I love my hyperbole.

Which reminds me, when am I getting paid back for the 16 cases of Dr Pepper you drank? No wonder you have to urinate every 5 minutes.

I really don't like the background music, please don't stop offering the alternative download.

Oh, I was gonna mention that, too. Not a fan of the music, either, though I sort of got grudgingly used to it by the end of the last episode. Works better with instrumental music – when you had, like, Neko Case on there I just wanted you to shut up so I could hear it. 🙂 Also, every time the song changed and I noticed the music again, I kept thinking the podcast must be almost over, because of the way you usually bring in music right at the end. But that's just a Pavlovian reaction that would probably go away after a while. But mostly, I find it more distracting than anything else.

I was fine with the music.

I actually liked the music better last week. It was quieter and less distracting.

I've been downloading without the music.

@ Gamble: In the immortal words of Jack Burton, the check is in the mail.

Is the non-music one in iTunes? I'm subscribed in there and it all auto-syncs to my iPhone, and the one it pulled down last week was the music one.

Would not make more sense to have the music free version as the default, since the listeners are used to it?

If you are going to continue doing the music version, would it be more appropriate for all the music to simply be movie soundtracks.

"Rappin' with the Rickster" actually looks great. It's a best-of compilation of an early 90's cable access show in which Rickster (who seems to be quite the goofy, interesting character) meets up with people from the Hip Hop scene. The clip I found on Youtube has him casually chatting with Beastie Boys' Adam Horovitz and Ione Skye – it's extremely laid-back and filled with inside jokes/anecdotes that the audience can't understand. I love it:

Do some research before you diss the classics, dudes!
