Cinecast Episode 480 – Gossip Interstitials

Despite Kurt’s protestations, there is a definite soap opera theme to todays show and its discussions. Asks Charlize Theron in The Fate of the Furious, “what’s most important in life?” The answer, for those in Monterey, West Texas and international nuclear arms thieves in the arctic is of course, “Family.” Besides the box office blow-out this week, we spend a good third of this episode on the greatness of HBO’s “Big Little Lies” (watch out for the read-between-the-lines (SPOILERS!). Andrew has forsaken film for the past couple of weeks to watch a Peter Berg television series about football in West Texas… perhaps that was a mistake? Kurt on the other hand has been taking in more Canadian genre cinema, some action from our man Steven Soderbergh as well as a pseudo-doc from the 60s and second visit of Japanese Animated, but this time dubbed (not subtitled) version of Your Name (period). This and more; sans Corona.

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