Cinecast Episode 269 – Placeholder

 
Despite having three theatrical movie reviews to get through as well as a watch list and reader list, we miraculously finish this show in under 150 minutes. How is it possible you ask? Listen and find out. Kurt and Andrew (by our lonesome again this week) find common ground in almost everything – from the latest Gilroy film to documentaries to Woody Allen to Paul Verhoeven. When it comes to celebrity-talking animals in a Disney product; even there, there seems to be some common footing. And for fun, what if CGI was capable of replacing Harrison Ford with Tom Selleck in Indiana Jones? Or how about John Wayne and Cary Grant in Expendables 4? Don’t even begin to argue that you wouldn’t go check it out for curiosity sake. A jam-packed show in record time – check it out.

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

I do enjoy how 150 minutes is now miraculous.

Kurt, you goofed and said Dogma instead of Dogville. But I would love to see Von Trier’s take on Dogma! Alanis Morrissette as God would probably endure lots of painful torture, and she can sing “Ironic” right before she gets killed. Maybe Brady Corbet & Alexander Skarsgård could play Jay & Silent Bob?

Here some of the notable Zeljko Ivanek roles that stick out for me (note how I’ve seen him in more TV shows than movies):
Oz (TV series) – He plays the corrupt Governor, who is probably the main non-prisoner antagonist of the series.

In Bruges – The “Canadian Guy” that gets punched by Collin Farrell in the restaurant

Damages (TV Series) – Played the sleazy southern opposing lawyer in the first season.

Heroes (TV series) – Played one of the main antagonists in Season 3

For me its his roles in The X-Files first season episode “Roland” as the title character, in an episode of Lost as Juliet’s ex-husband, as antagonist Andre Drazen in the first season of 24, as the French teacher/dorm monitor in School Ties, and as John Dickinson in the John Adams miniseries.

This dude is insanely prolific.

So glad to see that The Imposter is starting to role out wider. It is still my favourite film of the year so far.

As for Zeljko Ivanek, aside from his work in Big Love I will always remember him from his time on the shows 24 and True Blood.

So a movie comes out 4th in a series with a premise which is not new and clearly referencing what has came before.

Yet the execution of of the director and the casting choices propelled the wet blanket concept above what it could be.

Now where have I had that discussion recently…

I think my problem with the Expendables is that the actors don’t hold any cache for me. For me it is all the specific characters which I think the best idea that would be impossible would be to take Moore & O’Neill’s League of Extraordinary Gentlemen concept apply it to movies and hit the ground running.

However that would take some series studios dealing with one and other to a level I don’t think we would see.

I just saw Compliance today. It’s a VERY disturbing film to watch, yet I also thought that it was an excellent character study that examines our conditioning to obey authority figures (or in this case, people who claim to be authority figures) with no questions asked.

I would really be interested in Kurt’s opinion of the film if he does manage to check it out (I believe it’s at the Lightbox for at least another week).

Andrew I deplore you to give Hatfields and McCoys a second shot. If anything to see Bill Paxton lose his mind from time to time. Its remincent of Ron Burgundy freaking out in the phone booth.

But I loved this mini-series. Give it chance

is there a new Cinecast this week, brothers?

“Suck it up cat.” Hilarious. Excellent movies by the way; I actually preferred the remake when I was younger, but it’s been ages since I’ve watched either film. Was a huge fan of Ameche and Fox as the voices. I’ll have to borrow a kid from somewhere so I can sit down and re-watch these without feeling weird.
