Cinecast Episode 364 – Fetishizing the Pen

And you may find yourself living in a shotgun shack. And you may find yourself in another part of the world. And you may find yourself behind the wheel of a large automobile. And you may find yourself in a beautiful house, with a beautiful wife. And you may find yourself in the seats of the third row. And you may ask yourself, well…How did I get here? We ask ourselves the same questions. With no main review this week, we’re stuck with our home viewings and The Talking Heads. Which is plenty when you consider the likes of Quentin Tarantino, Woody Allen, John Turturro, Fisher Stevens and James Cameron. With nothing to talk about, it’s a mouthful folks (two, actually).

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

I found the torrent for ver. 2.5 of the STAR WARS “despecialized” version. I would never torrent something illegally myself, but if you want to be illegal, let me know and I’ll point you in the right direction.

Do you know when 2.5 was created? I *completely legally obtained* the depecialized editions a couple of years ago but didn’t write down the version number.

So glad this project exists – I would *completely legally obtain it* if I were given means to do so.

Andrew James

2.5 is fairly recent (like within the last couple of months). Technically speaking, just by the nature of the beat, I don’t think it’s possible to get it legally.

Here is the original article Kurt sent me about it.

I too have a version from many many years ago. My download is almost finished and I’m pretty stoke to watch this tonight.

Also, the article Kurt sent me about the Project is here:

And the “making of” video is here:

Found this last year. Gave it to a buddy of mine that has the VHS collector’s set. The Despecialized version is really the only way to watch the original trilogy. It’s amazing. I didn’t know they kept updating it like software. I need to check now which versions I have. The only updated version I remember downloading was Ep. IV.

Also, the doc I couldn’t think of when Kurt was talking about Blue Mission was the 2010 film, Cool It.

Saying the PG-13 rating hurts THE EXPENDABLES 3 is an understatement. That film is so toned down and generic it’s not funny. Also, the film plays the age card an introduces a (very bland) younger team for much of the film.

Antonio Banderas is fun though.

Also, Harrison Ford has pretty small role in the film (I’d say no more than 10-15 minutes of screen time)

Having just read the graphic novel, there’s a story reason why Josh Brolin is replacing Clive Owen in SIN CITY: A DAME TO KILL FOR.

Apparently Clive Owen was approached to play Dwight after he gets a “new face” in the Dame to Kill For story, but he couldn’t do so because of conflicts with The Knick.

As such, it is just Josh Brolin in make-up, which kind of looks weird.

On Inglorious Basterds, I was never hot on Brad Pitt’s performance. I just kept thinking, if Tarantino made this in the late 90’s/early 2000’s, Tommy Lee Jones would’ve surfed through that role like a Zen Master. Dyed-white hair a la Lee Marvin and Brad Pitt would’ve been cast perfectly as the Jew Bear. But Kurt & Andrew’s review was spot on. Think I’m gonna rewatch it this weekend.
