Cinecast Episode 399 – You Cannot Rush a Walk of Shame

Welcome…To Jurassic Park World. John Hammond’s vision has finally come to fruition almost 20 years later and, shocker(!), it’s a complete and utter shit show for everyone involved. This is especially so if you are an executive assistant forced to babysit your bosses nephews, or just sitting in a cinema seat watching bad behavior in the audience mirror the bad behavior of park visitors onscreen. From undefined “villains” to unnecessary, slapdash discussions on divorce, the movie wants to have its cake and smash it in your face too. Sigh.

We say farewell to the characters of Westeros for another year as the final episode of Game of Thrones betrays a lot of what the show has stood for in terms of structure and promise. The finale is a bit of cluttered and rushed job. And yet, as the dust settles on the very controversial Season 5, there is a lot to love.

Lastly, we talk John Carpenter’s creature feature set in Antarctica, as well as a plug for another podcast about film background players. Also Netflix’s Bloodline Season 1.

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

==================================================
I was hoping Bloodline was going to be discussed week to week, i can’t see TrueDec 2 coming close to it to be honest.

I didn’t get the soapy vibe Andrew talks about i’d say it’s closer to being Festen in Florida. All the regrets & history of a family coming to the boil, perfect drama. Mendelsohn is up there with the best of them, i’d describe his character as De Niro in Cape Fear. Not from the entire movie just the scene in the boiler room with Juliette Lewis, charming and seductive but at any moment he could kill her or fuck her. Still have 3 episodes to go.

When I say soap opera, I meant more like the prime time stuff of the 80 (Dallas, Falcon Crest, etc.).

And yeah Mndelsohn is great. He’s so mischievous and always difficult to tell what he’s thinking. It’s a fantastic performance.

Is Bloodline worth my time? Or should I start another show like, say… Orange is the New Black or Sons of Anarchy that I’ve never watched?

Gerry
Guest

I don’t know about Bloodline but I’d recommend the following shows.

Veep and Silicon Valley are very funny, Veep progressively so as the seasons progress and the swearing increases, and Better Call Saul is great.

I’ve only seen season 7 of Sons Of Anarchy, which I loved up until the last 2 episodes when the programme makers seemed to revel in drawing similarities between their show and Hamlet to the point where they seemed to be saying you, the audience, are probably too thick to appreciate this so we’re going to ram the point down your throats.

Not having seen the previous 6 seasons didn’t hinder my enjoyment of the season.

These 4 shows are my favourite recent shows, much better than the just ended season of Game Of Thrones, which I thought was sub par.

Andrew James

Watch the first couple of episodes of Bloodline and you’ll kind of know right away if it’s your thing. I will say I’m hooked and look forward to the promise of season 2. I talk about it more in depth on this show. Have a listen.

But Gerry is right. The one two shot of Silicon
Valley and Veep is terrific. Both better shows than Game of Thrones in my opinion.

Andrew James
Guest

Oh yes, and if you weren’t a fan of Ben Mendohlson before (or haven’t heard of him), you will be after season 1 of Bloodline.

Are you guys going to cover True Detective Season 2?

Kurt Halfyard

We talk about it in the show: Yes.

Andrew James

I would say at the very least we will be reevaluating this decision. I’m committed to three episodes, but if it doesn’t get better, I’ve got better things to do (e.g. “Jonathan Strange and Mr. Norrell”).

Gerry

I thought the first episode of True Detective was bitty and covered ground seen before, but the hooks, though small, were there and were enough to make me want to see how the series plays out.

I thought Farrel as Velcoro, who was so overwhelmed by feelings of impotence he couldn’t see that he was being royally played by Vince Vaughn, was great. I’m looking forward to seeing how he and his other two cop compadres get on.

Andrew James
Guest

Watched first episode of Jonathan Strange and Mr Norrell tonight. It’s great. Very stage like and the BBC factor is very present. It’s like Harry Potter for adults. Liking it much you do far. More to say on episode 400.

Kurt makes a VERY good point about the nostalgia factor playing into the success of JURASSIC WORLD.

I was 11 years ago when JURASSIC PARK came out. There were toys, McDonalds promotions, and video games. There was no way that this WASN’T going to leave an impact on my childhood. Even though the film scared me when I first saw in theatres, I still rewatched it countless times on home video.

Personally, I was really excited to see JURASSIC WORLD. While, I would still rank it below the original (and maybe even the second one), I still thought that my time wasn’t wasted.

Also, I have a feeling that the film had a bit of a word of mouth build. I saw the film on Saturday afternoon with about a 3/4 full audience. I went back to the cinema the next night to see the GAME OF THRONES finale and I noticed a pretty long line of people waiting to get into the next showing of JURASSIC WORLD.

Speaking of the GAME OF THRONES finale, there were two moments during the episode, which caused the audience to erupt into applause. Let’s see if you can guess what they were.

Meryn Trent
Brienne of Tarth.

Sean Kelly

You got Trent right. The other involved a push.

Kurt Halfyard

Seriously? The audience applauded Myranda’s death?

Sean Kelly

I think they were applauding Theon.

Kurt Halfyard

Ahhh, Return of the Jedi fans in the audience.

I’ve only seen Jurassic Park once and didn’t like it (heresy, but whatever). What got me into the cinema to see Jurassic World was Chris Pratt on a motorcycle leading raptors into battle.

That money shot turned out to be an IOU that they welched on, as it didn’t play out as awesomely as it promised in the trailer, but, despite all the film’s rightly pointed out shortcomings on this weeks Cinecast, I still sort of enjoyed the film.

Don’t underestimate trailers in generating bums on seats.

The Chris Pratt slowly unfurling the finger trailer to the song Hooked On A Feeling got me in to see Guardians Of The Galaxy.

I wasn’t bothered about Antman but seeing the 3d trailer for it at the cinema means it’ll be a must see for me.

While there are undoubtedly some similarities with Tubular Bells (which is actually the first section of a 48 minute progressive rock album), the Halloween theme was indeed written by John Carpenter, even though it’s based on a simple 5/4 time piano melody.

Andrew James
Admin

I salute Sean Kelly for pointing out that Andrew is correct. As usual.

Sean Kelly
Guest

Here’s the comparison in case Kurt still doesn’t believe me:
Halloween – https://youtu.be/nQWqRGVE1Zk
Tubular Bells – https://youtu.be/8LEWkwvaNcs

They are actually quite different if you hear them back-to-back.

Kurt
Guest

I’m not a music expert, but they evoke a similar feeling, and feel similar to me.

Andrew James
Admin

The Halloween one is more pounding and immediate with an intensity. I’ve never even heard of Tubular Bells but The Exorcist one has more of a mystery (and sweetness) to it; almost like a 70s crime drama – though weirdly it has a faster tempo. They do have a pretty similar feel and cadence though!

Sean Kelly
Guest

Tubular Bells began as a 1973 progressive rock album by Mike Oldfield (released a full six months before THE EXORCIST). I’ve never heard the whole thing, but it’s one continuous 48 minute composition (split into two parts because of record sides). The opening four minutes or so was used in THE EXORCIST, which resulted in the album becoming a huge hit.

So, that’s another difference – Tubular Bells wasn’t even specially composed for the THE EXORCIST, even though many retroactively consider it the EXORCIST theme.

Snow’s youthful idealism crashed against the cliffs of tradition and it broke hard.

(I want him to be dead but I doubt it will stick, there is far more book things to support more Snow)

He’s totally not dead (or at least won’t stay that way). I’d stake a lot on it. I’d say the chances of Stannis being alive are pretty good too.

Rick

I think Stannis is 100% dead the show did everything you can do with that character except have him win and he was never going to win.

Vanity Fair has a fair number of ‘Jon Snow Truther’ reasons that confirms what everybody already knows.

Your theater story reminded me of this

http://www.cinemablend.com/new/Why-Terminator-Genisys-Encouraging-Cell-Phone-Use-During-Movie-72219.html

“This is a true breakthrough for the movie industry. Video games are a multi-billion dollar industry, and merging that with the movies in a way that’s interactive, fun and truly memorable is a very exciting proposition for an industry seeking to innovate. This breakthrough may be equally exciting for the video game industry. The movies offer the very best in screen and sound while providing audiences with a first of its kind, collective, in-person gaming experience.

Those of you who are interested in playing the Terminator: Genisys game, which will allow participants to battle Terminators as resistance fighters at three different stages of the film, will have to visit specific AMC theaters in New York, Los Angeles, San Francisco, and Boston to annoy the people sitting next to them. During these stages, the players will be divided into four teams to fight our robotic rivals. Those who are victorious will win a limited edition Terminator: Genisys poster. Serenity now. “
