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!

  1. 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.)

  2. 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.

  3. 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.

  4. 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.
