Cinecast Episode 495 – Ocean’s 7-11

Soderbergh makes his triumphant(?) return to the Cinema with an all-star cast of this generation’s hottest stars. Kurt and Andrew and from Matt Gamble all take slightly different stances on 2017’s heist film (and fourth to use John Denver rather pronminently), Logan Lucky. Possibly more of a conversation starter is the upcoming Dave Bautista actioner, written by our friend Nick Dimici, Bushwick; which the boys were lucky enough to catch an early screening of. If your genre of choice is a “editless,” neighborhood rebellion movie with militia men and Brooklyn-ites battling it out, you’re gonna have a hard time finding something better this year. We round it out with some Bava, Ron Howard, Nolan and some batshit insanity from Marlon Brando, et. al. in Lost Soul: The Doomed Journey of Richard Stanley’s Island of Dr. Moreau. We do have about sixty seconds of Game of Thrones talk in there somewhere as well as a look to the weeks ahead with various films coming down the pike.

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

I feel Still Watching the Skies let you all down by not having an eclipse themed podcast ready. On the calendar for April 2024 though.

In tandem with Frost/Nixon, which I still dig, here’s the 90 minute Watergate Interview on Archive.org. I’d also recommend the William F. Buckley/Gore Vidal sessions, which were recently highlighted in the documentary, Best of Enemies.

Ron Howard is Hollywood’s perfect utilitarian Swiss-army knife director. Too technically proficient to be considered a “jobber”, but not unique enough to be considered an auteur.

It’s pretty telling that David Thewlis wasn’t featured in Lost Souls either. Richard Stanley actually made another documentary in 2013 that was released on Netflix called The Otherworld, dealing with spirituality and the occult. Feels like something Werner Herzog would do on drugs.
