Cinecast Episode 456 – So Far So Good…

The summer of 2016 officially winds down to a stop (thank the maker) as The Toronto International Film Festival comes to a close. Kurt spends a good chunk of this episode going through the best of the fest (from his perspective) and one or two things that didn’t work out quite as well as one would hope. Before we get there, we join Antoine Fuqua and his Magnificent Seven as they attempt to defeat the evil, mining industrialist, Peter Sarsgaard. It’s as close to an A-list cast as one can hope for these days, so does that pay off on the IMAX screen as it once did for the Western Blockbuster (if there ever was such a thing)? Lastly, Andrew has clearly had some time away from recording and producing to see quite a fair number of films. And breezes through a half-dozen of those before the boys call it a done deal. Regrets for not tying off the DePalma retrospective with a Scarface ribbon this week as promised; though that is in the works for next episode.

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

My favorite this week was “the Mel Gibson movie starring Andrew Dominik”.

All time fave is Carla Goo-Gin-o from a couple of weeks ago.

I smell a big Cinecast Gaffe Montage in your future. Episode #500 is coming.

31 debuted at Sundance and I believe has a very minuscule theatrical release a month or so ago before being released on VOD.

Rob Zombie has his fans and I’m not one of them (with me only giving his Halloween films a watch)
