Cinecast Episode 411 – We Wanna See The Business

Despite seeing nearly 100 films combined at TIFF 2015, Ryan from The Matinee and Kurt indulge Andrew by getting out to the multiplex to see the latest Johnny Depp performance, as James “Whitey” Bulger in Black Mass. We have a spoiler discussion on that, but needless to say, no one was overly pleased with Andrew for suggesting it. Kurt and Ryan attempt to wrassle TIFF to the ground after 11 days of shared screenings and food. They, in part, hash out the bests, the beasts and the worsts (or in the cast of Love 3D, the wurst) of some of the films on hand.

But wait, there is more.

Ryan and Andrew have a Watch List which includes re-evaluated Spielberg, various Afflecks and a new-ish film starring Matthew Broderick. Hunker down with your favorite blankie, take out your blue contact lenses, and settle in for the show!

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

Cherry 2000? You sold me sirs

CHERRY 2000 is a slightly better film than TURBOKID, but they are both playing in the same kind of space, and are both pretty darn good at what they do.

P.S. Tim Thomerson’s villain in C2000 really is one of the strangest ways to do that, kind of a charismatic, but casual cult leader, and he is marvelous.

Glad that Kurt showed One Breath some love on the show. Really solid film that I wish more people had seen. It completely flew under the radar at the festival this year.

Excellent. (And also thanks to all the folks who emailed me this link over the past 24 hours!)

I’m only vaguely familiar with the book Black Mass, but like Kurt, I did watch the Joe Berligner documentary on it. My thoughts are that the book title was a clever take on Whitey’s reign of terror over the Massachusetts underworld.
