Vin Diesel of the awesome beard!

Vin Diesel of the awesome beard!

Just when you think awards season is upon us, Hollywood goes and unleashes The Last Witch Hunter on us. But worry not because if this isn’t your thing (what’s wrong with you?!?) there are plenty of other movies to pick from this month if Vin Diesel with a beard isn’t your cup of tea and Coleen, Dale (Letterboxd) and I (Letterboxd) preview a whole bunch of them.

After the Credits Episode 176: VIFF 2015 Preview

banner-image_no_logos

It has finally arrived! Vancouver’s largest film festival (and also one of the largest in the world), kicks off tonight with an Opening Gala screening of John Crowley’s Brooklyn (trailer) which has been breaking hearts all over the festival circuit the last few weeks. Following that gala, VIFF will soldier along with two weeks of movies including festival favourites from the past year, a wide ranging selection of docs, a splatter of genre films and a fully loaded program of both Canadian and locally made films.

With so much to choose from, I enlisted the help of After the Credits sometimes-Festival Correspondent and The Green Screen of Death co-host Bill Harris (@soundjam69), to chat about some of the movies we’re looking forward to, along with weighing in on a couple of festival movies we’ve already seen.

And bonus: we share some quick thoughts (more like unabashed praise) for The Martian (trailer).

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

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

After the Credits Episode 175: Littlest Hobo Media Spew – August

Marina's latest obsession

Marina’s latest obsession

Someone made the mistake of asking what we watched the month before and Colleen, Dale (Letterboxd) and I (Letterboxd) figured rather than tack this onto the regular podcast, we’d just give you a little bonus show in the middle of the month.

The idea was for this to be a 10 minute bonus episode but it quickly got out of hand, mostly because there was so much to cover. We promise that next time we’ll try harder to keep it short. No guarantees.

Denis Villeneuve returns!

Denis Villeneuve returns!

Where exactly did August go? It seems like we blinked and all of a sudden September was here. Not around the corner but HERE.

Coleen makes her return after an epic adventure through Iceland to join Dale (Letterboxd) and I (Letterboxd) as we look ahead to September and the un-official start of festival season.

That is one good looking cast

That is one good looking cast

August feels like a bit of a slow month but perhaps the fact we’re missing one of our regulars might have something to do with it. Coleen was out taking photos of geisers and stuff in Iceland (more on that upon her return) but Dale (Letterboxd) and I (Letterboxd) managed to pull ourselves together to record this show. On the road no less! And I take all blame for it being a few days late. My bad.

My interview with the awesome Kevin Durand!

Sean Baker strikes again!

Sean Baker strikes again!

The summer is now in full swing but where are the summer blockbusters? It seems that the year’s biggest titles have pretty much come and gone but that doesn’t mean all the summer fun is gone – it just means that summer fun looks a little different; a little more mature and more of a mix of arthouse and blockbuster. Colleen, Dale (Letterboxd) and I (Letterboxd) are dig into the July bag of movies and emerge with a few notables.

Dope looks, well, dope!

Dope looks, well, dope!

Now that Mad Max: Fury Road (review) has come and gone, it feels like someone’s taken all the air out of the summer. What’s left? To help keep us on the ball, this month Colleen, Dale (Letterboxd) and I (Letterboxd) are joined by special guest Sarah B (Twitter) to help energize the show and it works… we do manage to get a little excited about a couple of the movies. Not many, but a few.

Is it December yet?

FINALLY!

FINALLY!

The time is finally here. After months of waiting, Mad Max: Fury Road is finally opening. But there is more than Charlize Theron and Tom Hardy kicking ass this month and Colleen, Dale (Letterboxd) and I (Letterboxd) take a look at some of the other movies opening in May, including a whole lot of what appears to be excellent counter programming.

Not soon enough!

Not soon enough!

It’s starting. Though we’ve had a handful of interesting (and good) titles in the first few months of the year, it looks like we’re finally into good movie season with a couple of big titles opening in April. The summer is about to kick off big time and Colleen, Dale (Letterboxd) and I (Letterboxd) dig into the first batch of “summer” movies.
