Cinecast Episode 225 – We Saw the Future

Thanks so much to Jandy Stone for dropping by to help talk movies this week. It would not have been much of a conversation without her. Hope you kicked arse for the lord with your trivia contest! At any rate, there’s surprisingly lots to dig into this week despite it being that odd time of year when not much is going on in the multi-plexes and people are spending their time tooling up for school and enjoying the beautiful weather. That of course, does not deter us from sitting indoors, ignoring the children and watching film. In limited release, we talk about Miranda July’s sophmore feature, The Future. Also on the platter is some British, sci-fi, humor action in Attack the Block and lastly Brendan Gleeson and Don Cheadle in The Guard. Grab some Pepsi for our discussion on the ins and outs and what have you’s of Kubrick’s Spartacus, Disney showing signs of life and film noir is still alive and kicking in the Netflix Instant realm. We remain relatively spoiler free throughout, so enjoy!

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

We finished second! Which was a major triumph; we usually finish fourth. 🙂 I can only think it was the strength of the Cinecast that helped us through. Or possibly bringing someone onto the team who knew about Steely Dan songs (not me).

There are much worse places to live than Silver Lake. :p

The word I was trying to think of when talking about Zazie dans le metro (when I kept saying “surreal…but that’s not right”) is, of course, absurd.

[…] DVD Triage posts anyway, which I crosspost here as well. But this week I guested on the Row Three Cinecast, one of three podcasts the site hosts, led by Andrew and Kurt. We talked about Miranda July’s […]

We all know the best Merlin on film is Karl Swenson and he also had the best scene of magic in film history.

Blue Collar (1978) was just added to Netflix steaming in America. Richard Pryor, Harvey Keitel, and Yaphet Kotto all in the same movie? Directed by Paul Schrader, just a year before Hardcore? Pryor in a dramatic role? Anyone see this flick before or have some feedback? It should be pretty fucking interesting!

I’ve seen it. It’s very good, Pryor is impressive actually taking on a dramatic role. You should definitely check it out if you’re a fan of 70’s American cinema.
