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!
