Cinecast Episode 343 – Listen, Do You Smell Something?

Hope you like gigolos; cause we talk about it again. Matt Gamble joins us with eloquence and a the usual splash of tom-foolery. Non-Stop is ostensibly the main topic of discussion today; but the Oscar recap (45 minutes worth) and “True Detective.” get the lion’s share. After all that noise, Harold Ramis and Bill Murray get the spotlight in Ghostbusters, as the 1984 Project trucks on; also starring Dan Aykroyd and Ernie Hudson and Sigourney Weaver and Annie Potts and Rick Moranis and Richard “Dick” Thornburg. The film is of course beloved but Andrew struggles with the fact that he’d rather be watching Rocky Balboa (Fuckyea) If that simply isn’t enough for you, we have “Breaking Bad”, Wong Kar-Wai, The Oscar-bait Bottleshock nominee Omar before Andrew sheepishly admits his desire to see 300: Rise of an Empire. You have been warned.

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

SPOILER ALERT FOR TRUE DETECTIVE

You didn’t think the creepy music after the gardeners comments at the end and the shot of the boat were the film makers saying he and his family were some of the killers of the missing people and they got around the Bayou to do this in boats?

Didn’t you think Rust thinks that Marty is involved, even if he got involved due to very unfortunate circumstances?

Maybe Marty’s daughter was abused by the ring in some way (and, as abused children do, became sexualised beyond her years and faced difficulties in later life) but Marty couldn’t do anything about it because of the powerful people involved.
Once he saw the photos and video it brought home just how horrible the abuse was and he and Michelle Monaghan knew he was finally going to do something about it, hence ‘is this goodbye?’.

This is probably wild speculation on my part which won’t pan out.

Last week I complained about the less than stellar red herrings but I’m actually enjoying all the misdirection.

Wonderful episode guys, love the True Detective section, keep it up. Looking forward to next week, love it.

One possible reason why female clients would agree to be on Gigolos is maybe these women are being compensated by the producers to some extent. A decade ago, friends of mine were on People’s Court or one of those shows and they told me part of the agreement was that both sides are compensated. The loser doesn’t have to pay.

I’ve seen half an episode of gigolos ages ago and I wanted to punch my tv…..a bunch of superficial tools. Like all reality shows, it’s mostly scripted. I get it when someone says it’s their “porn”…even though i’d bet that porn is really their “porn”.

Matt Gamble
Guest

They are being compensated (which is also the work around for them being able to show them engaging in sex) but supposedly it isn’t very much, whatever that means. I’m sure plenty of them are voyeurs as well, which probably has as much to do with it as anything. Even with all that, I dont know how they found a woman who wanted to act out a home invasion rape fantasy with someone she doesn’t know. That takes a special kind of crazy.

About half the cast has changed since the first season, and you’re right they are all pretty superficial, but it’s still totally entertaining in a car wreck sort of way. It’s no way near as helpful as something like Savage Love, but it’s operating in the same sphere of entertainment.

I don’t always agree with Kurt’s opinions, but I’m so happy someone else was underwhelmed by NON- STOP, since I was going crazy by all the quite positive feedback coming from the Toronto film circle. I didn’t hate the film, but I agree that this career tragectory for Liam Neeson has run its course.

Also, I admit that I probably had a stronger connection to GHOSTBUSTERS 2 growing up, since I watched it more than the first (I now own both on DVD).

Stream next week’s 1984 project movie:
Neil Jordan’s THE COMPANY OF WOLVES

http://www.firedrive.com/file/7300939E5AD0C309

I had a tough time finding it on YouTube and Google Movies failed me this week. But the above link is a nice streaming version of the film.

Sean Kelly

Hmmm…..the poster of the film reminds me of a certain show that popped up on Netflix last year.

Coincidence? I think not.

Jape Man

I’ve seen the company of wolves…. Though not recently

Hey, I am just now getting into the cinecast after listening due to Frank’s appearance on last show(film junk fan). I have greatly enjoyed Kurt’s guest spots on FJ so I thought I’d give it a go. I find you guys to be the best group of arguers on the net, and I’m curious, are there any specific episodes where there were major arguments? The lego movie discussion gave me a little taste but I’d love more. Thanks!

Scott Pilgrim

That vampire movie (Daybreakers?)

Whenever they talked about the first 2 or 3 episode of Game of Thrones

John Carter I seem to recall

The Daybreakers fight was epic. Matt is still totally wrong:

——————————-

Matt got really REALLY angry with me for not liking the first few episodes of GoT. I think it was this one:

http://www.rowthree.com/2011/05/03/cinecast-episode-211-save-it-for-the-spank-bank/

——————————-

Did the Rango episode get heated? I feel like maybe it did:

http://www.rowthree.com/2011/03/10/cinecast-episode-204-varying-degrees-of-ludicrous/

——————————-

Also the first Star Trek got heated if I remember correctly. Four years ago…

Thanks so much to the both of you. Excited to dig in.

Iron Man was Kurt’s infamous rant about HUD display’s ripping off Robocop. I don’t think it was much of a huge fight but it get’s brought up pretty frequently whenever someone wants to take an easy shot at Kurt.

Savages was a fairly recent one, mainly because Kurt tried to argue it was a comedy.

Andrew James
Admin

Don’t remember which episode, but the one in which Kurt said that a particular movie shouldn’t have the right to borrow from Indiana Jones. Don’t remember the context but it was funny when it set Matt off.

Matt Gamble
Guest

Does anyone remember which show was the one Kurt got so mad at me he told me to fuck off?

Kurt Halfyard

My guess would be the Captain America show….

Robert Reineke

I’ll throw in one more thing about Ghostbusters, I think it works really well because it’s grounded in a “small business startup” comedy as much as it’s a supernatural adventure with bureaucratic red tape being almost as big a menace as Gozer. They threw out all the business humor in the second one which is perhaps one of the issues for that movie.

Rick Vance

Seeing as how there is a very limited number of True Detective episodes remaining if you guys find yourselves needing a fix of that sort after it is gone I have a recommendation.

The Shadow Line (2011) a 7 episode BBC crime drama that plays like a modern version of this too me, starring Christopher Eccleston & Chiwetel Ejiofor

It is the best.
