Cinecast Episode 328 – Side Nuggets

This week Kurt promises to get it in under an hour. Can he do it? Not if Oliver Stone has anything to say about it. But we’ll see. In the meantime we dwell on the McConnaissance taking place over the past few years; the most recent of course being Jean-Marc Vall√©e’s Dallas Buyers Club. Which also happens to turn out what is arguably Jared Leto’s finest role to date as well. Hawaiian Disney, magic bullets, dangling phone cords, John out of Waters, Jack Nicholson and They Live homaged by Ben Affleck. All this right after a few emails about World War I. Do not adjust your .mp3 player; you have entered the Thor-free zone.

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

I’m seeing Kill your Darlings (and possibly Dallas Buyers Club though I’m not that interested) this weekend.
I saw Blue is the Warmest Color a few weekends ago, just in case you need a guest for next week ūüėČ **wink wink nudge nudge**

Surprised no one brought up <i>Lawrence of Arabia</i> for WWI movies. And Kurt’s nuts ragging on <i>Witness</i>, but I think we already knew that.

@Nat Almirall Actually, I just got a late email from @Robert Reineke who says,
“…you can just go with universally acknowledged masterpieces such as Lawrence of Arabia and The Grand Illusion. Not to mention Kubrick’s Paths of Glory, Peter Weir’s Gallipolli, Powell & Pressburger’s The Life and Death of Colonel Blimp, and Howard Hawks’ Sgt. York.
If that’s too obvious, you can do a trilogy of WWI flying ace films like Wings, Hells Angels, and Errol Flynn’s The Dawn Patrol.
Coming up with one that you probably haven’t watched in a while, let me close with a recommendation for John Huston’s The African Queen where Bogart and Hepburn set out to sink a German gunboat controlling German East Africa. It’s a proto-Wages of Fear, a dangerous, exciting journey, a terrific love story with two leads giving it their all, its often quite funny, and it has some great scenery.¬† It’s a full course meal of entertainment.”

@Nat Almirall And yes, I thought about saying something after the Witness comment, but I held my tongue.

Dallas Buyers Club is one of those films I’m interested in seeing, yet have no idea if or when I’d be able to see it in theatres (I still need to find time to see 12 Years a Slave, which I may squeeze in next week).
Skipping over the Cinecast Review just in case.

JapeMan¬†I saw Blue is the Warmest Colour¬†on Monday. I quite liked it (though I wish there wasn’t as much attention on the sex in the film).

JapeMan
Guest

I felt the sex scene was WAY overhyped. Maybe I’m desensitized to “explicit sex” but besides being long it wasn’t all that gratuitous or graphic IMHO.

JapeMan
Guest

I accidentally replied to the thread and not just your comment about the “Blue” sex scene. Sorry.

Waiting on Kurt’s Counselor opus. I’ve seen the counselor three times, and it gets exponentially better with each viewing. I hope to jot some thoughts down somewhere eventually. ¬†
My most important takeaway, though, is that this is a movie that must be seen on the big screen to be enjoyed thoroughly. ¬†People don’t usually say that about these types of movies, but that’s how beautiful the photography is.

Jericho Slim¬†I still need a 3rd viewing myself, I’m hoping to have something detailed on the film by years end…beyond simply a review, hopefully.

Loh

Dang.¬† Did you guys ever review Epic the CG cartoon movie?¬† Looking for a review where you guys tear it apart but it seems ya’ll skipped it.

KurtHalfyard
Guest

Loh¬†Andrew & I have for the past few years taken the approach that if we are not interested in the film, we don’t bother to review it. ¬†This was the case with EPIC, and recently THOR and most likely THE HUNGER GAMES. ¬†That being said, I think Gamble Saw EPIC and kinda liked it…I’m not sure what episode that was however.

ajames1¬†Aw, using HTML tags is faster, though. Don’t have to stop typing to highlight text or switch to mouse/touchpad to click any buttons. Too bad it doesn’t work anymore.

Loh

KurtHalfyard Loh I figured you watched it with your kids maybe. Lol.
You’re skipping out on THOR? C’mon.¬†
I understand what you mean though. I would not sit down and watch the Hunger Games even if you paid me.¬† Well I would if you paid me but I would want to claw my eyes out.¬† I am not the movie’s target demographic though.
