Cinecast Episode 387 – Cutest Damn Bunnies in Cinematic History

 
This week’s episode focuses on two women with some very deep seeded problems; one physiological and one psychological. But they both love their rabbits. From Fargo in winter to the Italian Spring, we span the globe, the seasons, the real and the surreal. From character actor docs to wrestlers in tanks to mediocre comedy and horror – this is one Cinecast that truly covers the gamut of cinematic procurability and diversity.

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

Kumiko: The Treasure Hunter is less based on a true story, than it is based on an urban legend surrounding a real person –

I think my opinion on the film is closer to Andrew’s than Kurt’s. It’s indeed very depressing and Toronto After Dark took a huge risk programming it (especially in a 9:30pm time slot).

P.S. The spoiler time tracks in the show notes are reversed. Almost listened to the Spring review by accident.

First off, time tracks above are fixed…We talk about SPRING first and KUMIKO second.

I like that TADFF stepped out of it’s ‘box’ to program something like Kumiko. I think it is crazy that TIFF never went for it…

I’m a big fan of James Wan and I marathoned all of his horror films a couple years ago.

Insidious is a film that’s best in theatres. I liked the first film, but was underwhelmed by the sequel (though I still plan on seeing the third).

I’m just about to see an advanced screening of Furious 7, so I’ll let you know how Wan’s take on the franchise is.

I saw Furious 7 this evening and, even though I only binged watched the films just last week, I have to say that this is probably the best in the series and a fitting conclusion.

Have a feeling Kurt might be shocked at how big Wrestlemania is

Kurt, your free pass at the airport is what we call in American culture, white privilege. Welcome to America you lucky outsider.

I’m really surprised, Kurt, that you didn’t use Lou Taylor Pucci in Spring to talk about Southland Tales for 15-20 minutes.
