Cinecast Episode 435 – We’re Not Offending Anyone

As the weird release scheduling system of the cinematic landscape in late March and April eases up a little bit, Kurt and Andrew confound their own scheduling system with the new overnight job and such. Fortunately, they both find some common ground with the little-seen Eye in the Sky; a great send-off for Alan Rickman in which he gives a nice speech on the morals of the military machine… and then brings a talking doll home to his granddaughter. The film is not without some problems but it’s an engaging and dramatic thriller with a great cast and possibly the best screenplay of the year so far. Outside of the cinema, Kurt treads over alien territory for a second time with Jonathan Glazer’s Under the Skin. It’s a shame more people aren’t willing to give stuff like this a better chance. Meanwhile, Andrew stays at home to check out the WGN original series, “Underground.” Which is kind of like 12 Years a Slave meets Sofia Coppola’s Marie Antoinette directed by Guy Ritchie. And of course we’re both chomping at the bit for Game of Thrones to finally get started with season 6. All this and a few things more lie waiting within. Tune us out as we play in the background!

Under the Skin was heavily downloaded on the internet…but not exactly for its cinematic prowess. Someone else’s prowess.

Remind me, was this before or after the Apple-iCloud leaks of photos…or were these photos only of J.Law? All of this stuff tends to blur in my memory. But suffice it to say, the last thing the ScarJo nudity is in this film is erotic….

Yea, it’s all a blur for me too. I wanna say before the fappening. I agree that scene wasn’t erotic at all. But, I doubt the leechers watched the entire film and consumed that scene in context. I just remember the screenshot was all over the net.
