Super Ticket Episode 1 – There’s Definitely a Shoe Motif

Wonder twin powers, ACTIVATE! It’s been demanded for hours and now it’s finally here: a collaboration between the Mamo Matts and The Cinecast featuring Matt “the pot shot” Gamble of Where the Long Tail Ends. Three quarters of the way through summer blockbuster season, culminating in a Guillermo del Toro monster mash ’em up seemed like an appropriate time to get this party started. Besides Pacific Rim, we naturally evolve into talking about the concept of the Super Ticket, racism at the box office, will Hollywood finally fuck off, Spider-Man 4(!?) and the secession of Texas joining forces with Quebec to start a new world order. This is an historic moment; enjoy it!

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

PS: Apologies for some volume inconsistencies. Our audio recording software couldn’t quite handle the magnitude of narcissism involved in putting this show together. We’ll have it fixed/upgraded for the next episode – assuming the world can handle it.

PPS: The stinger may be the best part of the show.

The Matts win it hands down.

Gamble nails my reaction. When the kaiju spread it’s wings I let out a woop of excitement and there were a couple of other moments where the urge to cheer was overwhelming.

There’s a great interview with del Toro on a recent episode of the Empire Podcast where he talks in detail about the world his team created. He mentions a 400 page bible which the production team put together hashing out all of the details that were largely glossed over in the movie. It would be great if they published that. The art book has some of those details but doesn’t go into a whole lot of depth. The mind melding thing reminded me of the spice induced pilots of Dune.

Brown – twilight is the shit but you stopped short at 4 movies. The 5th is the best of the bunch.

Orange is the New Black is awesome. I don’t think it’s the female version of Breaking Bad but it’s bad ass. I’d say it’s a lightweight female version of Oz. Either way, it’s really good.

I love this format of the show. Just over 60 mins is the perfect length though I admit I feel slighted. This show needed a shot of estrogen. 🙂

I fear your comment about Twilight may have invalidated everything else you said — regardless of its articulation.

Marina

To each their own. My kryptonite is sparkly vampires. Deal with it.

Matt Brown

Nat – I certainly hope my liking Twilight has similarly invalidated everything I’ve said, all the way back to the beginning of Mamo. Consistency, please.

Marina – I saw the fifth in theatres, just didn’t have time to build it into my marathon watch this weekend.

Nat Almirall

I’m afraid so; this is the Internet.

Kurt

Movie Club is coming up, Marina! Hoping for Your West-Coast-Estrogen in that show!

Marina
Guest

I just wish the movies were ones I really cared about one way or re other.

Sean Kelly

I’m sounding like a broken record at this point, but I’d like to reiterate my interest in participating in the next movie club (I’ve already watched both films).

Andrew James

One episode in and I like “Orange is the New Black.” Not into some of the flashback drama bits, but the characters in the prison are frickin terrific (inlcuding the main girl: Reese Witherspoon and Rhada Mitchell’s lesbian love child).

Nat Almirall

It’s the same gal from Atlas Shrugged Part 1 — and, yes, the show is fantastic. Unlike LOST, they do keep the back stories short and focus more on what’s happening in the present.

Orange is the New Black is the best show Netflix has made so far. A few episodes in I feared it would be like Weeds. Weeds for me was entertaining, but ultimately I didn’t care about the characters. It quickly got too wacky and too unbelievable.

One season in, I’m liking both the plot twists and the characters of Orange is the New Black. Really good stuff.

Andrew James
Admin

Agreed about “Orange is the New Black” being the best so far (that I’ve watched). Weeds was absolutely hysterical for about 2 1/2 seasons. Then it got ridiculous and kind of dumb and boring. The suburban soccer mom selling pot to Kevin Nealon was great. I sort of wish it didn’t get so “big.”

Sean Kelly
Guest

I’m too slow on the uptake of these Netflix original series. The only one I’ve made decent progress on so far was Arrested Development Season 4.

Sean Kelly

I’m with Andrew in how I’d be a LITTLE more accepting of the SuperTicket idea if they offered a blu-ray, as opposed to a download. Call me old fashioned, but I’d rather have a disc that I can put on my shelf than a bunch of files on my computer.

Also, SuperTicket is using Ultraviolet, which is a cloud-based service I’ve heard mixed things about.

Matthew Fabb
Guest

I should give Ultraviolet a try since I have all these codes sitting around in disks but have never activated. I would be more for a SuperTicket (if it was buying afterwards, not before, as there are very few movies I would pre-buy) if it was just an MP4 file or an AVI file with no DRM. As I rather not buy a format that is going to be a pain in the ass to actually get it set up and working and then only in certain conditions.

You should rename MAMO SPAMO given mb’s promotion of itunes.

Matt Brown
Admin

Then what would we rename you?

Markus Krenn

Wow, i really had a blast listening to his episode.
On a side note, could you just widen the movieclub podcast pool?
If you had a base of maybe 20 people, you could put out an episode per month.
Just record it when 5 people show up.
With all the Row Three, Film Junk, and maybe Directors Club people combined, it could easly been done.
Sure i would miss some of my favorites (no name dropping here), but it would mix things up a bit.
And i would’nt have to wait for Naked Lunch for months now.
And just out of curiosity, who gave birth to that idea back then?

Kurt Halfyard

To answer your question:

Movie Club Concept – Kurt
Naked Lunch for this Upcoming Episode – Andrew
pairing it with Tristram Shandy – Matt Price

Markus Krenn
Guest

So Kurt, as the ‘live-bearer’ of this side project, would you be willing to sit out an episode if neccesary?
Given if you would you the hanging nail in the schedule issues?
Is there a core group that has to participate?
Don’t get me wrong, i’d rather have the usual crew around, but the concept of the podcast is just too great to only have 2-3 episodes per year.

Sean Kelly
Guest

I’ve only listened to the last 4 1/2 episodes, but the core group seems typically to be made up of Row Three and Film Junk peeps.

I’ve been trying to get onto the next episode, because of my love for Cronenberg and the fact that I actually wrote an essay on Naked Lunch in university (though I’d have plenty to say about Tristam Shandy as well).

Matt Gamble
Guest

The group is actually a pretty decent size, something like 12 people to pick from by my rough count (and it actually is probably larger than that). Part of it is trying to coordinate so many people around a date that can work for everyone, at a time that works for everyone. We’re dealing with quite a few different time zones after all.

I know part of why I haven’t participated as much is my podcast already scratches this particular itch, and I just prefer taking risks on unknown movies than talking about movies all of us have already probably seen a few times. Revisiting is nice, I just prefer finding something new, even if I wade through a lot of shit to find it.

Markus Krenn
Guest

Different Time Zones? Except for the few England peeps, your 3 hour amercian timeframe really should’nt be an issue.

Markus Krenn
Guest

And Matt, unless my brain has farted out, or i missed something important, i’m still waiting for you to appear on the Club. And i’m looking forward to.

Matt Gamble
Guest

I was on earlier editions of it and haven’t been on it in sometime. I believe the last episode I was on was the Wizards/Grave of the Fireflies ep. Omar is another that hasn’t been on it since the early shows and he’s in Iceland.

As for the time difference, since Marina is in Vancouver it can take a bit of wrangling to make sure things align since she’s 3 hours behind. Its not an impediment, but it still takes some manuevering. The whole process is kind of like herding cats.

Nat Almirall
Guest

I thought you couldn’t shut up about Tristram Shandy. It is pretty awesome.

Matt Gamble
Guest

I’ve done at least two podcasts on Tristram Shandy. A Cinecast and a High and Low(Brow), that kind of feels like I’ve covered my bases on it.

trackback

[…] choice. The gang over at Row Three called “Avengers Assemble!” this week and created a Superticket Episode where the full crew from The Cinecast were joined by Price and Brown from Mamo. In case […]

This was glorious. But too short.

So I really liked the Kaiju designs the glyph nature of them and I didn’t mind that they all resembled each other due to the process they show them being created in the movie.

Also Del Toro poached an artist I love (Guy Davis) do do the design work on them.
