Cinecast Episode 288 – 95% Certain

We’re keeping it short and sweet – well, relatively sweet – tonight folks. Andrew and Kurt have a well deserved vacation imminent and there is still a lot of planning and details to get packed up. We’ve got some bonus homework to read that will help in that trip planning. Otherwise we’re here on this rare Sunday night version of the podcast courtesy of Kathryn Bigelow and Osama Bin Laden.

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

Actually, in some ways the film the ZD30 resembles the most is Ridley Scott’s BLACK RAIN with a little bit of Moneyball (albeit it takes the opposite stance….as in screw ‘probability’ I’m 100% sure even as it flirts with playing the odds in the mountain of data throughout the films.)

I really should have suggested Caribbean themed horror (i.e. zombie movies) as a vacation assignment. Zombie, I Walked With a Zombie, Juan of the Dead, Serpent and the Rainbow, Shock Waves, White Zombie, etc.

My wife is a HUGE fan of Juan of the Dead. I’ve not seen it yet.

White Zombie and Serpent & The Rainbow get fairly regular rotation in our household.

I first know Kyle Chandler from Peter Jackson’s KING KONG. He was also in SUPER 8, as well as the TV show Friday Night Lights.

ZD30 is a Rorschach blot test of a movie. Listening to your complains Andrew they were all un-connectable to the film I saw.

I guess. I agree with pretty much everything Andrew and Greg (on FilmJunk) said.

btw Kurt (this is a compliment incoming)… I was listening to a Henry Rollins interview on the Nerdist yesterday, they were talking about music for a full 2 hours, and the way Rollins talks at length about things and about different pressings of vinyls, and the way he makes tangents… IS SO FUCKING CLOSE to the way you talk about movies.

Kurt Halfyard is the Henry Rollins of cinema appreciation.

I’ll take that. That is probably the only time I will ever be put in the same sentence with Henry Rollins (of whose SPOKEN word, and some Black Flag stuff, I could say that I am a fan.)

I find it’s very hard for me to have unbiased thoughts on ZERO DARK THIRTY.

As a thriller, I thought it was somewhat decent. However, I am getting kind of sick of the “Go America” attitude of these types of films (coming from someone, who is both Canadian and a Liberal)

Andrew was sort of right about the torture sequences. I would’ve liked the film to be a bit more critical about them, other than showing them in the beginning, then forgetting about them.

Rick Vance

You don’t think the depiction of torture was critical? I thought it was sadistic and horrendous and did nothing to glamorize it.

Kurt

“Those of us who work in the arts know that depiction is not endorsement. If it was, no artist would be able to paint inhumane practices, no author could write about them, and no filmmaker could delve into the thorny subjects of our time.” – Katherine Bigelow

Best bit of photoshoping I’ve seen in a while!
