Cinecast Episode 262 – Sturdier!

Aaron Hartung, friend and (literal) neighbor of Rowthree, joins the cinecast as we discuss Wes Anderson’s Moonrise Kingdom. After basking in the warm gloss of Anderson’s 1965 New England island adventure, Aaron cannot help himself (like Donnie in The Big Lebowski) and asks a few more plot questions regarding Prometheus before Gamble gives a middling summary of Timur Bekmambetov’s Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter. The Watchlist varies from pleasant if forgettable Dreamworks Animation, political backroom strategy, Ben Kingsley’s libido, The Rock’s ukulele skillz and from Technicolor meta-westerns to Danny Boyle’s resume for the London Olympic Ceremonies. Important questions such as who has a sexier voice (Aaron vs. Andrew) are addressed, as well as when is a fish hook simply a fish hook, or a shoe just a shoe. Riveting stuff folks and it is all here.

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

Good job gentlemen. You sure know how to do this podcast thing! Do more. Happy thoughts.

Kurt
Guest

Thanks for the feedback.

I would say that it took a little time in particular episode to get the timing/rhythm down with 4 people on the podcast.

You guys got Steven Wright to guest on the show! He sounds lively! AWESOME!!!

Brittany

The staff of the Row3 Cinecast approves of your homoeroticism.

DavidM

By ‘hot’ do you mean self-satisfied, smug etc?

If so, yes.

Matt V

OUCH!

I was going to re-watch Sunshine the other day, but couldn’t find my copy and instead re-watched Event Horizon. My eyes hurt now.

Cody Lang

Great show, I especially liked the Sunshine discussion. Also Abraham Lincoln Vampire Hunter sounds awesome.

Bowenarrow

I read the Abraham Lincoln Vampire Hunter book and loved it, but the trailer for the movie does nothing for me. I’m tired of watching the trailer and can’t wait for it to come out so I don’t have to watch it and listen to people boo it. Unless reviews for this turn out to be amazing I’m just going to wait for Netflix/Redbox to check it out.

Cody Lang
Guest

Yeah I’ll probably do the same. I just think it looks like a lot of fun. I think it would good to watch it with a group of friends and have a good laugh.

Matt Gamble
Guest

I’d argue if you are going to see it you should see it in the theatre. It’s so shameless with its 3D that it really should be seen on the big screen.

Bowenarrow
Guest

Hmmm…I might have to pull a Kurt

Kurt
Guest

That’s what she said.

Cody Lang
Guest

Yeah you mentioned that in the episode. I might have to round some guys to go see it in 3D then. I just think the concept is hilarious for some reason. A similar film came out before I thought that pitted Bonnie and Clyde against some kind of monsters or maybe they were vampires. I don’t know remember now.

Kurt
Guest

Cody: If you go back thru the Cinecast history, you’ll find at least half a dozen extended discussions on SUNSHINE. We love talking about that film.

Andrew, Kurt & Matt have decent voices but Aaron sounds like he came out the womb and was immediately thrust in front of a mic and told “You will be a late night radio DJ for the rest of your life”

Sean Patrick Kelly
Guest

If Frances McDormand didn’t do accents before, what the hell is she speaking with in Fargo?

Kurt Halfyard
Admin

Funny that I think of Marge Gundersson as a character, not so much a funny accent. Everything is in there mannerisms, humanity, and accent. I guess I see that a lot different than simply ‘Goofy Accent’ on display in Madagascar3

Seriously, you need to sort out your recording levels.

When getting Andrew’s soft voice to a level I could hear over passing traffic it sounded like Kurt Halfmetre had taken a dislike to me and was trying to kick my eardrums in.

I’m sure Sean or Jay of Filmjunk could help you out with equalisation advice.

Rick Vance
Guest

Okay Kurt dropped it I need him to fill out the rest of his top 10 Science Fiction

Because personally when my mind goes to that the films that come up first are.

2001, Blade Runner, Alien, Clockwork Orange, Predator, Terminator, Robocop, Total Recall, Videodrome, Scanners, Children of Men, Primer, THX 1138, AKIRA, The Thing.

Kurt
Guest

Well, I’d certainly lose Total Recall (as much as I like that film) and Scanners and Akira, but our lists are in the same ballpark.

I don’t really consider A CLOCKWORK ORANGE sci-fi. More like alternate universe drama.

I finally watched Moonrise Kingdom and found it fairly devoid of the charm I come to expect from Wes Anderson. I think Andrew was right before, this does feel like someone else doing an excessive job of being like Wes Anderson and by overcompensating not getting any kind of heart or sentiment. I like the two main kids a lot, but they maybe converse in the film like 30% of the film run time, outside of posturing, and plotting, and everything to do with the adult characters that are just dull, I got about 30% enjoyment. 35% because Balaban was fun. Give me the Max Fischer version of this, where Sam is in virtually every scene, and has lengthy back and forths with characters, and where Sally gets to be more than an object of desire.
