Cinecast Episode 493- A Beer Commercial

Missing week in the recording schedule can be tough for some podcasts to get over; especially when one of the hosts is out of the country. But not The Cinecast. We trek on, banging out the 80s German jams while we rap about Charlize Theron and Atomic Blonde. Kurt is done with The 2017 Fantasia Film Festival and comes to us with a full report on everything from 4K remastered classics to a $65 Ugandan action picture. Due to some French ISP issues and nosy annoyed neighbors, we had to cut this one a little bit short, but what is in here is golden. Get your notepads ready, this is Cinecast 493!

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

I always enjoy these FANTASIA episodes, although there’s usually at least one or two movies that Kurt will rag on. Not the case this time. Kurt’s quiet voice could almost pass for ASMR.
I’ve never seen the original The Crazies either, just the remake which, as mentioned, is pretty solid.
Breck Eisner’s only other noteworthy films are
Sahara and the awful Last Witch Hunter.
Re:Captcha system works now Andrew, thanks.

Your quiet enthusiasm made me want to see a lot of the Fantasia festival films Kurt, though I’m guessing the only way I’ll see some of them will be if they ever turn up on YouTube.
That seems to me to be a viable distribution option for low budget films that do the festival circuit but very little otherwise, given that vloggers incomes can be in the millions.

You are bang on in noting that the Festival circuit, particularly the GENRE-Festival circuit (Fantasia, FantasicFest, FrightFest, Dark Nights, Sitges, TADFF, Saskatoon, BrooklynHorror, Blood in the Snow, Neuchetel Fantasic, Calgary Underground, Ithaca, Strausbourg, Fantasporto, Bucheon, Screamfest, Raindance, Fantasik Lund, Atlanta Horror, Buenos Aires Rojo Sangre, NYAFF, Ravenna Nightmare, The Stanley/Overlook Festival, Grimm Up North, Yubari, and TIFF’s MIDNIGHT MADNESS) constitute a viable release strategy.

Being pedantic, but according to IMDB Lowlife is one word. An idea for episode 500:

Find out the top 10 films that Kurt and Matt disagree on, and let them argue about them for a few hours. If Matt isn’t available, Jay Cheel would another good option.

I second that idea, though don’t limit it to films.

I also really liked episode 250.

Grady Hendrix has a great series of articles related to the book which are a lot of fun to read if anyone is interested – http://www.tor.com/tag/freaky-fridays/.

Definitely looking forward to that book though when it does come out.

It says a lot that you say that David Bowie’s “Cat People (Putting Out Fire)” should’ve been retired after INGLOURIOS BASTERDS at not the 1982 Paul Schrader film it was written for.

Kurt

Fair Enough. The 1982 Cat People doesn’t use the song memorably (but perhaps it is time to revisit the Schrader film – I consider the Jacques Tourneur (original) film to be more memorable, and a fair bit better.)

I think I solved the music switch, at least for the first needle drop, they should have used Nitzer Ebb’s LIGHTNING MAN. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=dfwicqniOMw
