Though on first glance April is looking a little light on goodness, more than a passing glance revels quite a stash of stuff to get excited about including the eagerly anticipated Cain the the Woods. Apparently I’m not the only one who can’t resist the pull of Whedon. But there’s more than that and Dale (Digital Doodles), Colleen (Mary Ostler Wood Butchery & Other Stuff) and I find a few other titles that peak our interest. Take me to space!
In a strange turn of events, this month’s preview rivals the Cinecast in length. Coming in just over the two hour mark, this is what happens when Dale (Digital Doodles), Colleen (Mary Ostler Wood Butchery & Other Stuff) and I chat movies opening in March and let ourselves muse on good TV, piracy and reading. We don’t even venture into Oscar talk! Apparently we need to meet more than once a month.
Yes, this is about five days late, considering we’re talking as if we’re still in 2011 but alas, here we are in 2012 and our first podcast of the year of the end of the world. Dale (Digital Doodles), Colleen (Mary Ostler Wood Butchery & Other Stuff) and I look ahead to the heaps of movies opening and expanding in January.
The festival actually kicks off today with an opening night screening of Jason Reitman’s Young Adult but we, yes, I said we, are way too cool for Diablo Cody. Colleen (Mary Ostler Wood Butchery & Other Stuff) and I have been talking this festival up so much over the last year that we’ve even convinced Dale (Digital Doodles), among a few others, to join us for the fun. The line-up is spectacular (Dangerous Method, Manborg among others), the stars many (Michael Shannon and Jay Baruchel are both being honoured) and the booze will flow. Oh yes, there will be parties and I may actually make it out to one of them this year. Listen in for our rambling take on this year’s festival and stay tuned for a post fest wrap in a few days time!

And we’re back! It’s been a particularly busy few months but the crew, Dale (Digital Doodles), Colleen (Mary Ostler Wood Butchery & Other Stuff) and I have finally found the time to gather at the new Burnaby studio to record a show. December has much to offer, including a load of Oscar bait, but among the dramatic gems there are also a few mindless bits of entertainment and at least one title that left us scratching our heads. Spielberg… what are you thinking? Listen on for all of the juicy details and stay tuned for another show (it’s true, you can hold your breath if you like but it’s completely unnecessary) in the next few days. Did someone say Whistler?!?
Festival season is almost upon us! Hurrah! While TIFF gets into the action at the beginning of September, the rest of us need a little something to keep us entertained. Good thing there seems to be quite a bit to choose from. Dale (Digital Doodles), Colleen (Mary Ostler Wood Butchery & Other Stuff) and I take a look at the release heavy month of September.
Another month and after a semi-successful June (which saw the international outing of McBender), we’re ready for more fun. Dale (Digital Doodles), Colleen (Mary Ostler Wood Butchery & Other Stuff) and I look ahead to July and go figure, the movies we’re most interested in are the few limited release titles. WHY US?
It’s been a great couple of weeks of movie watching. Not so much of surprise considering the number of good releases but what is surprising is that we all managed to get to a few movies and though not together, there’s still quite a bit of cross over.
This time around Dale (Digital Doodles) shares some thoughts on Priest, Colleen (Mary Ostler Wood Butchery & Other Stuff) waxes on about the awesomeness of “Perry Mason” and I speak vaguely about the epiphany I had watching Terrence Malick’s Tree of Life (Kurt’s Review, Marina’s review). We also take a stab at the alien invasion flick Attack the Block which features some spectacularly awesome music. I want this soundtrack!
Welcome to June and the true beginnings of the summer blockbusters with a number of high voltage movies on the horizon. Dale (Digital Doodles), Colleen (Mary Ostler Wood Butchery & Other Stuff) and I look ahead to June which has at least one movie I’m excited about. Michael Fassbender anyone?
