With Oscar night quickly approaching, we’re kind of on our last gasps of fresh cinema to talk about for a couple of weeks; so we enjoy this one as much as we can. Kingsman starring Colin Firth is not really what we expected, so to keep Andrew and Kurt’s experiential bias at bay, special guest, 11 year-old Willem Halfyard helps put things into perspective in a full spoiler assessment of the situation. After the boy’s bedtime, things get naughty as the grown-ups go on to talk about the Fifty Shades of Grey alternative in the much loved (and unfairly dominated) The Duke of Burgundy. Later, Kurt explores more gonzo action cinema including a triple scoop helping of Bourne and the unfairly hated (but loved around here) Domino and Book of Eli. Andrew takes the violence angle in a more classical route with John Ford’s Liberty Valance and animated rabbits killing animated rabbits. Oh and Dan Hedaya always brings the A-game… as do we.
As always, please join the conversation by leaving your own thoughts in the comment section below and again, thanks for listening!
