I can barely believe it’s here. Not only is the holidays a few days away but we’ve hit episode 200. That’s a lot of talking over the years! Here’s to 200 more!
After a short hiatus for various festival duties, the After the Credits crew is back and bringing you a preview of what to expect in December!
Take a listen as Dale (Letterboxd), Colleen and I (Letterboxd) check out what the month has to offer and weigh in on our excitement for what the holidays has in store for us at the movies. The conclusion? A little something for everybody.
That’s a wrap! VIFF has come and gone in a whirlwind. It’s hard to believe two weeks of movie watching is already gone and though this year I didn’t manage to see quite as many movies as I’d hoped for, I mainly managed to make good choices and didn’t see too much I didn’t like.
In this final dispatch from the festival I’m (@themarina) joined by regular festival correspondent Bill Harris (@soundjam69) of Green Screen of Death, and friend of the show Lisa (who has appeared on our last few VIFF wrap shows) to count down our favourite movies of the festival.
We actually recorded this show earlier this week but things have been so crazy, it’s only going up today. Lucky for you, the festival is almost over at this point so we’ll be returning to our regularly scheduling posting in the coming weeks. Anywho…
We’ll be coming at you with one final show in the coming days to wrap up the fest and count down our favorite films. Until then, be sure to follow-us on twitter, follow the festival hashtag #VIFF and check out the festival website for screening information – VIFF repeats have been announced and screenings will continue into next week!
Festival season has officially landed in Vancouver with the kick-off of the Vancouver International Film Festival last week.
As has become tradition, I’m ((@themarina) joined for our first dispatch from the festival by Bill Harris (@soundjam69) who is now also part of a really awesome podcast we’ve talked about in the past Green Screen of Death.
The intent was for this to be posted yesterday so it’s already a day late however, most of the discussion is still relevant as some of these movies are screening again over the next week + left of the festival, and because talking about movies just never really gets old.
We’ll be coming at you with another dispatch after the weekend of heavy movie watching but until then, be sure to follow-us on twitter, follow the festival hashtag #VIFF and check out the festival website for screening information.
Chalk this up to a cautionary tale. When Dale (Letterboxd), Colleen and I (Letterboxd) gathered last week to record this show, IMDb seemed to be having some sort of crisis of database management, showing movies that were already out as new releases and leaving out a bunch of other titles. This week, the glitch seems to have been fixed but as a result, we missed a number of titles which are (apparently) opening this month.
If anyone out there can recommend another release schedule which may be more accurate, please let us know. As for this episode… the movies we DID talk about are listed below.
Would you like to know more…?
It doesn’t happen very often but on this month’s episode of the Media Spew, we all happened to watch the same show. Yes, as with everyone else, Colleen, Dale (Letterboxd) and I (Letterboxd) all manged to get sucked into the cult of “Stranger Things.”
Aside from Netflix, we also caught up with a great assortment of movies, both new and old. Listen in for all the goodness!
Summer movie season is coming to an end and August is a perfect encapsulation of that fact: a mix of last minute tentpole releases with a mix of indie fare that marks the end of one festival season and the beginning of another.
Coleen returns this month to join Dale (Letterboxd) and I (Letterboxd) as we look ahead to the interesting mix of titles being released in August which includes a handful of great looking but poorly titled releases.
Dale also introduces his new project, a storytelling show called Terminal City Tales which you can check out here.
Colleen is still MIA (something to do with a job that is making her super tired) so Dale (Letterboxd) and I (Letterboxd) forge ahead without her to talk about some of the stuff we’ve been enjoying of late – from the tube and all the great stuff currently on TV to what we’ve been reading and listening to.
