Cinecast Episode 286 – Posted, Hosted and Toasted

 
No video version this week folks; sorry. Holidays and sickness are taking just too much of a toll. But that didn’t stop us from talking for about an hour on Tarantino’s latest joint. Plus a look back at the Top Five male performances of 2012. We get into a healthy and dynamic Watch List this week as well as some of our usual tangents. Thanks so much to everyone who contirbuted to the Homework segment of the show for the past few months. You’re all winners but in the end there could only be one, so we get into that a bit in the beginning. We’ll be back next week with our year in review. In the meantime, enjoy the Tarantino tongue bathing.

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

On re-watch the pacing problems are apparent, especially once they meet Monsieur Candy. Don’t get me wrong, the film is still awesome.

Awwww, no finals question? That was the most fun last time around.

MC Gainey’s other notable roles are as the head of security in the underrated Club Dread and the angry lawman in Run Ronnie, Run. Also, laaaaaame.

And for snowy westerns, there’s also McCabe & Mrs. Miller

Ah, that one had slipped my mind (I still remember it as a ‘brown, muddy western’ but you are right, it’s covered in snow. I love this film too.

(Also, Winterbottom’s THE CLAIM would qualify as a Snowy Western, and a really good one as well.)

Haven’t listened to the episode yet, but if memory severs well, there are some major snowy scenes in Silverado too.

By a short term stretch you could also consider “Yukon” a western.

I want Tarantino to do a Giallo.

Now I really want to see this:

Or This.

And this (although set in the early 20th century not quite a western, but what a cast!)

We have historical records that show the mannerism and speech patterns of Lincoln.

I figured as much, but didn’t say anything to this effect on the show…

Give Ryan McNeil a blu-ray box set for winning the homework and the 2 runners up a fancy edition of a blu ray AND invite Ryan on to your next cast.

Jeez, talk about being cheap. Use some of the donations you were talking about so effusively to pay for them.

I know Christmas is is over but you’re coming across as a scrooge Mr James.

And please get a third podcaster in when one of you can’t make it. Maybe Jandy, Jonathan, Ryan or any of the Filmjunk crew.

You should just solicit everyone to send in Top 10s instead of homework so you can mock ours as we mock yours.

This is a good idea. People are also welcome to submit their lists to Andrew’s ongoing “List of Lists” (Sean Kelley and Ryan McNeil already have…)

Matt Gamble

I never did get to give out my extra credit question.

Sean Kelly

James Remar also played DiCaprio’s main henchman. I double-taked when I saw he was playing another character.

It’s quite ironic that I would get to to discussion on TAKE THIS WALTZ as I was heading home from the Bell Lightbox, where I saw both an on-stage conversation with Sarah Polley (she had quite a bit to say about the mixed reaction of the film) and a “Canada’s Top Ten” screening of STORIES WE TELL (which really is quite excellent).

I haven’t gotten to the Waltz portion yet but I already know Andrew is wrong 😛 – I’m sure Jim has already taken him to the woodshed already so I’ll first just link to my own review here:

http://letterboxd.com/coreypierce/film/take-this-waltz/

and that complaints about their cutesy dialogue or the ‘kill’ dialogue is so so so so off. Those touches are all about how intimacy looks so alien from the outside. People talked about it being a quirky indie affectations.. well, I’ve been in a relationship with baby talk here and there, and stuff that would seem odd or even scary to others. There’s a relationship language built early on that comes from experiences, in jokes and references that we don’t get, and the movie intentionally shuts you out. In fact at one time she tries something with neighbor boy and he doesn’t get it, because they have their own language which has been built on him pushing her buttons and her being so introverted.

Furthermore saw a complaint about popcorn… that’s so weird to worry about. why? Do I have to go down to the aquatic centre and take a picture of the concession stand for you?

At any rate, Take This Waltz was only surpassed by me this year by Polley’s Stories We Tell, which if anything only adds even more texture and understanding to Take This Waltz and Away From Her. They are bound together. Polley makes the most emotionally intelligent films out there.
