Cinecast Episode 482 – A Six Demon Bag

Two movies could not be more different in tone. First up is an indie horror from a first time director who has made a minor masterpiece in Hounds of Love. Next up is a SPOILER review of the rainbow psychedelia that is Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. II. Kurt saw some fireworks at HotDocs; and a hobby horse revolution among other things. Andrew revisited his favorite Ted Jonathan Demme film, turned his brain off with the third xXx movie and then perused the entire history of film over the past seven days. It was a busy week for both the guys, but there’s always time to record a show – even if it is eight in the morning.

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

I’m looking forward to the Guillermo del Toro exhibition when it comes to the Art Gallery of Ontario in the fall (I’m surprised TIFF didn’t manage to book it, given their relationship with del Toro over the last number of years).

Kurt, I should’ve thanked you for mentioning that Eega was retitled Makkhi on Netflix. Wouldn’t have noticed otherwise. They retitled the Hindi dub since Eega is just a loose English translation of “The Fly”. Baahubali is quite the spectacle but I wish it was available @ my theatre. Not the same on the small screen.

I think Rachel Getting Married is the one Demme film that’s had the most impact on me, surprisingly.

Andrew, Mark Cousins is from Northern Ireland not Scotland 😉

The Zune actually hit the market about 5 years after the iPod. I think the joke in GOTG2 is that it was a major bomb.

Seeing HOUNDS OF LOVE theatrically this weekend (at the one cinema in Toronto it’s playing at).

Boy, Hounds of Love is a tough film to watch. While the film isn’t specifically based on a true story, there are similarities to the 1986 case of David and Catherine Birnie, two infamous Australian serial killers.

Along similar lines, this is one of the most fucked up things I’ve ever read. A man named David Ray Parker and his girlfriend/wife would abduct women and when they woke up, they would hear this audio recording about what was going to happen to them.

THIS IS very NSFL.
