Cinecast Episode 457 – Lots of Gauges

We’re finally wrapping up our DePalma summer retrospective with what Film Junk readers have deemed the best Brian DePalma film that ever was, the iconic Scarface. Pacino and Loggia whoop-ah it up to eleven as they take over the Miami, gangster underworld. Is that enough to warrant a three hour run time? Can they carry us all the way to the finish? Kurt and Andrew investigate. From there, we travel a few hundred clicks to the west where the deepest oil well in history blowed-up real good with Mark Wahlberg, Kurt Russell and Malkovich Malkovich Malkovich aboard! Deepwater Horizon was a good time for those of us that got to witness it years later with a large 7-Up and hot, buttered popcorn in our lap. Do you concur? Lasty, Kurt revisits the original Star Trek Motion Picture on the big screen which turned out to be quite delightful and Andrew hopes for another positive showing from Woody Allen in a revisit of Vicky Christina Barcelona. Say hello to your little friend: The Cinecast!

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

We’re now available on Google Play!

I’m totally with you guys on Scarface. Not to question the status quo but I feel this film is enjoyed because it’s basically all surface and style with little substance. The tragic idol morals feel muddled. Too long, too loud, and too repetitive. It’s probably the first film that made we aware of De Palma though (or Carrie?). I should revisit the Howard Hawks picture; haven’t seen it in ages.

[Star Trek: The Motion Picture]… it’s an action movie of ideas.” That might be the single geekiest tagline I’ve ever heard from you Kurt 😉

I always said that The Social Network was a conversational action movie.

Totally. Anything Sorkin is kinda that way. Steve Jobs is explosively exhausting with its verbal ejaculate.
