Cinecast Episode 321 – High Five for Vapid!

Courtesy of Kurt’s children being out of town, we have more “currently available in cinema” reviews at one time than we’ve ever had on this show. We start with Neil Blomkamp and move seamlessly into Woody Allen. From there it’s on to David Gordon Green somewhat returning to his roots. Then it’s Orca, Drug Lords, murderous tyrants, “shit cinema”, “shit television”, tickle buttons and Katy Perry’s bits. You couldn’t pack more density into a sardine canister filled with diamonds. Matt Gamble is back and the show just about clears three hours, twice as many sighs and four times as many volume spikes; go figure.

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

How is the title not Halfyardian Trolling?

Fun hearing you trying to say my username, i should really put a space between Ultimo & Lee.

It’s the same as people thinking my site was called Skon Movies

Since I generally offer the title options after the show for Andrew to choose from, then it’d be like trolling myself…which I suppose I’m not above doing…

MIDNIGHT IN PARIS was nominated four 4 Oscars (including Best Picture) and WON Best Original Screenplay. It was also Woody Allen’s most profitable film, making $56.8 million domestic and $151 million worldwide.

Also, I don’t want to argue against Kurt’s defense of THE CANYONS (everyone has the right to their own opinion after all), however I do believe some people are trying a little too hard to find hidden meaning with the film, just because it was directed by Paul Schrader, who once worked on decent films 30-40 years ago.

Wow, three weeks and counting since the last Cinecast episode! I’m guessing life got in the way?

Kurt

Sadly that has been the case, much of which me in NFLD, Andrew in school, and TIFF on the horizon. We’ll be back on track sooner rather than later.

Well, see you at the festival (according to TIFFR, it looks like we’ll be crossing paths quite a few times – including at my very first screening tomorrow)
