Cinecast Episode 418 – Mark Ruffalo Gets His Pizza

Such a weird time in movie world. While there’s all manner of great content on the boob tube, the theaters are kind of vague and scary at the moment. Mostly everything is getting strange release locations/dates, is tough to gauge quality, we’ve never heard of it or it simply just looks mediocre. Which is why we were so happy to gamble on one and get it right with Tom McCarthy’s Spotlight. For Kurt, this is end of the year award fodder; and Andrew’s not fair behind on the agreement train. Since Fincher’s Zodiac get thrown around a bit in the discussion, we use the only Watch List title this week, Se7en, as a bit of an excuse to talk even more about Spotlight. And that just about does it – sorrynotsorry for the brevity this week.

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

That scene between Rachel McMcAdams and the priest at the front door seemed directly lifted from the doc Deliver Us From Evil, the main subject in that Father O’Grady would make the same dissociative remarks about what he did. Again, see that doc, especially to get that conversation extended, it is terrifying.

This makes sense. I don’t know why I haven’t watched this doc up to this point, I’ve been aware of it for years. Now is as good an excuse as any to watch it.

This post is about Soderbergh: Hey guys just picked up sunshine on blu so I can finally rewatch it. Obviously, I’m alittle behind. But going back to your episode a few weeks back with the Boyle list. I just picked up the film Nightwatch which stars Ewan McGregor and is co-written by Soderbergh. Neeto. Also a movie he produced called Keane, had an alternate cut on the dvd edited by himself. So just in case Kurt needs a new Soderbergh fix, there you go!
