Prequel. Sequel. Who cares? Just. Bring. It.

Prequel. Sequel. Who cares? Just. Bring. It.

This year’s flu season really hit me hard and as a result, we were unable to record anything for March but we wouldn’t let you down two months in a row so amidst holidays and new work schedules, Coleen, Dale (Letterboxd) and I (Letterboxd) managed to find some time to get together and look ahead to what’s coming in April. And holy crow, there’s a lot of stuff coming in April!

Other stuff mentioned this episode:

– The American Scholar article on Colonia
– Smithsonian article on story behind Elvis and Nixon photograph

The 100. Get over your fear of the CW and watch it already!

The 100. Get over your fear of the CW and watch it already!

The holidays have come and gone and we’ve been watching a butload of stuff. I’m talking full on catch up mode in both the TV and movie fronts so it’s no surprise that this month’s episode of “what else we’ve been watching” runs a little long.

Listen in as Dale (Letterboxd), Colleen and I (Letterboxd) catch up on what kept us sane through the holidays. And beyond!

He becons many sequels. The role Ryan Reynolds was born to play

Sooooo we sort of missed December due to the festival craziness and then January… well, that was all my fault. That’s what a week of holidays will do to you. It made my brain so mushy I forgot that we were supposed to record and then regular January stuff happened and time just vanished!

It was probably for the best. January at the movies looked absolutely terrible. Good news is, Coleen, Dale (Letterboxd) and I (Letterboxd) are back just in time for some of the good stuff to start our year of podcasting off right!

Other stuff mentioned this episode:

– Entrance to the Salmar Theatre in Salmon Arm BC:

After the Credits Episode 182: November Preview

The stunning Saoirse Ronan

The stunning Saoirse Ronan

We’re fully into awards season and the only thing I can really think about is: where did the year go?

Just the same, there’s still two months left in 2015 and if November is any indication, a lot more movies to look forward to. Coleen, Dale (Letterboxd) and I (Letterboxd) manage to completely overlook the fact that we’re a month away from a new Star Wars movie to concentrate on the titles opening this month.

Other stuff mentioned:

– Guy on a Buffalo video

After the Credits Episode 180: VIFF Dispatch #3

We did it! We made it through another festival and this year, it seems everyone is in better spirits than in previous years. I’m still disappointed by the relatively small number of movies I managed to see but on a positive note, at least my batting average was generally good.

For this year’s festival wrap show, I’m joined by Bill (@soundjam69) of The Green Screen of Death fame, and the lovely Lisa who makes a return from last year’s wrap show, to count down our favorite festival titles, the bottom of the barrel and touch base on how the festival did as a whole for 2015.

A number of VIFF’s most popular titles are currently playing at the Vancity Theatre. For full details and schedule of the VIFF Repeats, check out the official website!

I can hardly believe it but the festival is almost over. Where did it go exactly?!

It’s been a few days since we last talked and since then, Bill (@soundjam69) has seen a hundred more movies (exaggeration – but not by much) and I’ve seen a few more, most of them good which brings the good to bad ratio in the favour of good and that, at least, is something worth celebrating.

We will be returning later this week with a final wrap of the festival and to share our top picks but until then, this will keep you informed!

At the tail end of the show I mention a recent episode of the Talkhouse podcast though I picked the wrong genre icon! The episode features Ben Wheatley and Alex Cox (not Richard Stanley – who is also awesome) and you can listen to it here.

For up-to-the-moment updates from the last few days of the festival, be sure to follow us on twitter. Bill is at @soundjam69 and I’m at @themarina.

We were well into the first week of the festival when we recorded this on Saturday and naturally since it’s now Monday, we’re now even furher into the frey.

Reporting from the trenches (actually the very pleasant courtyard of The Cinematheque on a lovely sunny day!), I’m joined by friend of the podcast Bill Harris (@soundjam69) – who also co-hosts the great The Green Screen of Death with Adrian Charlie (who we talk about in passing and whom you can find @Adrian_Charlie) – as we talk movies so far (or more accurately, he talks movies so far and I occasionally chime in).

The Vancouver International Film Festival runs September 24 to October 9. For full listing of films and tickets, visit the official website.
