Cinecast Episode 476 – Facebook and a Water Stain

This makes three episodes in a row now in which Kurt and Andrew land on exactly the same page in regards to our feelings towards a particular movie. And on that note, sorry not sorry for reviewing the movie that no one saw this weekend, but we couldn’t bring ourselves to spend resources on what looks to be, by most accounts, a washed out, lazy retelling of a Disney new classic. Instead, we jump through some logistical hoops and drive many miles to catch up with a little movie from Britannia titled The Sense of an Ending. It didn’t seem to fully click with most audiences and we have some theories as to why that might be. But around here it is classic Cinecast gold. From there it’s the Watch List. Kurt hit some classic Canadian cinema and caught up with Jerry Seinfeld and his many automotive guests on Comedians in Cars Getting Coffee while Andrew finished Peter Berg’s “Mark Wahlberg” trilogy and finally took the time to finish Scorsese’s epic, Silence. A delightful conversation ensues; have a listen!

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

  1. I enjoyed The Lunchbox but it was fairly light. Definitely a 4-corners crowd pleaser, although I do recall some controversy when it wasn’t selected as India’s Oscar entry (The Good Road was).
    Very serendipitous, bittersweet, and touching but certainly something that caters more to Western sensibilities.
