Cinecast Episode 474 – Logan, Get Out!

Two big movies getting rave(!) reviews from critics. Andrew and Kurt are less than enthused for at least one of them. I believe the phrase “masterpiece” is being thrown around alot these days for films that will mostly be forgotten in six months. Get Out manages to shake up the mold a little bit and there is some discussion to be had there. But the adoration for Logan is pure bafflement on both sides of the table. Kurt decides the American Western tie-in is a good opportunity to revisit the classic Shane. Andrew takes the race card to a different level with American History X. Also The HBO series keep on coming as well as a Zemeckis throwback from the turn of the millennium. This is a dusty car ride of a Cinecast that, unlike Logan, has a destination and a purpose.

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

Kurt, Andrew, get off MY lawn. LOGAN was more than fine (coming from someone who has watched every X-Men from since he was 18).

In this particular case, I’ve had the same experience. I’ve been watching The X-Franchise since the first film came out in 2000. I think the idea of LOGAN is a fantastic one, but I think the execution could have been much better.

And Kurt, PLEASE DON’T WATCH DEADPOOL OR YOU’LL RUIN IT FOR ME!!!!!

Rest assured, It will be highly unlikely that I ever bother with DEADPOOL, it’s got just about everything I dislike about the super-hero genre.

I really enjoyed Logan. I think one reason me and others are enjoying it as much as we are is because we’re not expecting/hoping for it to be 90 minutes of Logan and the albino discussing what pills to give Xavier. It’s been 18 years, people are attached to the character at this point. In my screening, people were crying. Women and men alike. You have some valid points for sure but it’s also nitpicking to the extreme and I guess the movie just isn’t for you guys. Stuff like comparing Xavier freezing people with his mind as a knockoff Quicksilver sequence when Xavier has been doing that since the very first movie, long before Quicksilver. As for the kids running instead of fighting in the end, despite having powers they are just kids and have probably been conditioned all their lives to not fight these soldiers. Doesn’t make perfect sense but it didn’t bother me a ton. The action was good for me, also it makes sense to me that it’s pretty much down to fist fights seeing as Logan can barely move. Like I said, you do have some valid points as well though. I really didn’t like the Wolverine clone, I hope they stop doing that shit soon. Also, they were clearly in Mexico since he passed the border to get to the tank.

Btw, I am no scientist but I thought batteries is something we’re struggling to come up with a good replacement for?

Allison Williams is best known as one of the four leads on HBO’s GIRLS. GET OUT is her first major film role.

I agree about Flight – it’s ok. Allied on the other hand, is 100% pure Oscarbait-y garbage. Cast Away is by far Zemeckis’ best film – as far as I’m concerned.

It’s a tie between CONTACT and BACK TO THE FUTURE for me. (I have a very soft spot for ROMANCING THE STONE though).

Andrew James

Favorite? Romancing the Stone.
Best? Probably BttF or Contact.

Leaving BttF out of this since it’s my automatic defacto pick.
Who Framed Roger Rabbit
Used Cars
I liked Contact a lot, but it comes down for me on rewatches. Do need to revist Romancing the Stone though. Haven’t seen it in ages.

“That’s what I call a camp firrrre.”

Still have not seen Used Cars. Gotta get on that.

When talking about “Big Little Lies”, I probably should’ve mentioned that the entire series is directed by Jean-Marc Vallée. Pretty major selling point.

Kurt
Guest

Hot Damn! (But I’m gonna wait till the entire series is out.)

Patrik
Guest

Completely unrelated, have you guys seen Pretty Little Liars? Would be interesting to hear/read your thoughts on it

BTW The US version of the Slap was based on an Australian miniseries from 6 years ago. But agreed, the US cast blows it out of the water. Only saw 1 episode but the writing wasn’t great.

“Stephen Merchant and Stewart add some pathos to what should be a delightfully pathetic tale, but there’s not nearly enough suffering here for a film built on blades. It is, from quite early on, just a comic book movie with a bit more blood. It is not McCabe and Mrs. Miller or Unforgiven or any other film that makes you feel its violence as an actual element of drama; it is a Marvel movie with the action-style violence of Commando.”

Most assuredly worth a read:
