Cinecast Episode 499 – Automat

Blade Runner 2049 fixes some things about the original 1982 film. This is exactly why Andrew is happy and why Kurt is pissed off. Also, is it basically a remake in disguise? The boys dissect. Up next, what if The Coen Brothers and Quentin Tarantino were married and their child was a gore hound? You’d have S. Craig Zahler and Brawl in Cell Block 99 would be his sophomore effort.

Kurt is back from Sitges and we get a little taste of that experience at the beginning of the show. Towards the end of the episode, Andrew has been turning off his brain with mostly junk cinema while Kurt saw his favorite film of the year. Have a listen and make your case/point in the comments below.

I’m with Kurt in regards to Lucky. It’s really terrific.

I’ll throw out Kurosawa’s Madadayo as a final statement on a filmmaker’s life. Of course, Kurosawa had been kind of doing films looking at death from Dersu Uzala on.

Mackenzie Davis is Canadian. She’s a bit of an up and coming actress. I first saw her as the “hacker girl” in Halt and Catch Fire, which by Season 3 has gotten really good. She was also in The F Word, Always Shine, and had a bit role in The Martian. I think the rest of the world probably best knows her from the acclaimed “San Junipero” episode of Black Mirror.

I first saw her in Bad Turn Worse which is a wannabe Coen Brothers film.

Dave Made A Maze played Grimmfest here a couple of weeks ago, it was one of the days I couldn’t make. It’s online now though, I enjoyed it a fair bit.

If you want more Friedkin goodness check out the DGA podcast episode where he is the moderator in a Q&A with Aronofsky about mother! he puts him through the wringer 🙂
