Cinecast Episode 463 – This One is Icy (Your Mom Was Right)

Matt Gamble from Where the Long Tail Ends makes his triumphant return to The Cinecast to sing the praises of Tom Ford and Hailee Steinfeld! Andrew and Kurt give Gamble a break for a moment while we head to Manchester by the Sea with Casey Affleck. The Watch List hits some big titles and small. With PT Anderson, Taika Waititi, Steven Spielberg, Paul Verhoeven, George Miller and competitive endurance tickling.

Breaking from tradition a bit, we cease to bring about any shouting matches or deliberate sign-outs (the Skype equivalent of slamming the door) upon Matt’s return, but nevertheless its a spirited conversation and it was fun getting the band back together. Hope you enjoy the show. And remember, SPOILERS!

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

An example of “bad” on-the-nose metaphors (that I couldn’t come up with on the show) would be the rat at the end of “The Departed.” The predator/prey stuff in “Tickled” is kind of middle of the road. The artwork displayed in “Nocturnal Animals” is great.

Is anyone having a problem downloading the episode?

It keep cutting off while it’s downloading. i’ve tried listening in my browser and it stops after 10mins. odd

I downloaded it alright using the Pocket Casts app this morning. And just now, I was able to stream it on my PC with no problem.

That said, yes. I am having problems downloading the file straight-up from the download link. It keeps stopping the download between 30 and 50mb (when the entire file is 137mb). I’ll try to figure this out when I get home.

I got it to work, just left it to load in the browser for a few minutes.

I think Kurt is alone in his interpretation of NOCTURNAL ANIMALS’ ending.

I often am, in these things. It’s part of my charm.

That means he must be right! Can’t wait to listen to this podcast.

Just hope they’ve stopped talking (and caring) about the awfully dry and artless show Westworld, on Cinecast. The most overrated and unexciting (there should literally be a reference to Westworld in the dictionary description of the word “unexciting”) TV show on the planet right now.

Andrew James

We only did an opening review of Westworld and we just did one after the finale.

For the record, I don’t totally disagree with you… aside from the hyperbole.

SPOILER ALERT for MANCHESTER BY THE SEA and A MONSTER CALLS XXXXX SPOILER ALERT for MANCHESTER BY THE SEA and A MONSTER CALLS XXXXX SPOILER ALERT for MANCHESTER BY THE SEA and A MONSTER CALLS XXXXX

I saw a preview of Manchester By The Sea last night and found it engaging from beginning to end, unexpectedly humorous in parts and enjoyable despite the (very) sad bits.

One of the best films of the year for me, (but not seemingly for the eight walk outs who never gave it a chance) so nice to see it get recognition in the Golden Globes nominations.

I saw a preview of A Monster Calls too which also had ridiculously sad bits, the whole film really, but was just depressing, (which is fair enough given it’s subject matter).

For anyone interested in it the monster bits were remarkably well done and seeing it on the big screen is the way to go.

Manchester is amazing. The way it inserts humor and levity into such a sad bastard story is nothing short of brilliant.
