It’s a running theme through almost everything we discuss in today’s show. Elsa Dorfman uses “shed-size” Polaroids to inspire the beat poets of the day and contemporary family portraits alike in Errol Morris’ new documentary, The B-Side. Noah Hawley has stepped up his game big time in season 2 of “Fargo” – not only in cinematography but also pretty much every other aspect of a television season. The Watch List sees gimmicky gore fests, a silent three-hour progenitor for the James Bond films, underappreciated Coen Brothers fare, a new Netflix series about women’s wrestling and finally a .44 Magnum, the most powerful hand gun in the world and could blow your head clean off!

Cinecast Episode 487 – A Fistful of Film (Best of 2017 So Far…) http://www.rowthree.com/2017/06/20/cinecast-episode-487-a-fistful-of-film-best-of-2017-so-far/ http://www.rowthree.com/2017/06/20/cinecast-episode-487-a-fistful-of-film-best-of-2017-so-far/#comments Tue, 20 Jun 2017 15:50:25 +0000 http://www.rowthree.com/?p=91660 Kinda weird that with various movies in circulation starring Naomi Watts and Rachel Wiesz and John Lithgow… not to mention a Pixar film, that Andrew and Kurt stayed away from el teatro this weekend and opted for some air conditioning and home screenings. Kurt binge watched the entire season one of Fargo and much prodding by Andrew; so there’s plenty of discussion to be had there – discussion of biblical proportions actually. Andrew went back to early Leone and Michael Bay and some Sundancey schlock. But it’s the end of June so it’s time to look back and try to find any evolving trends on the year as well as count down our top five films of the year so far. This one is a bumpier ride, but hang on to the reins and you’re come out of it just fine.

Matt Gamble makes a most triumphant return to The Cinecast this week as we tackle the latest in indie horror “spreading” through the multi-plexes. Get your face mask on for It Comes at Night. From the infected forests of North America to the cold, gray bureaucracy of the U.K., Andrew and Kurt go to the depths with last year’s Palme d’Or winner, I, Daniel Blake. Each host this week has three films for their Watch List which rounds out a pretty nice show. We have documentaries, Disney remakes, previous Palme d’Or winners, Netflix original, boxing flicks, romantic comedies, Fosse Fosse Fosse and cannibalism.

There are things to love and things that weren’t pulled off quite as lovely as we would have hoped, but all-in-all we’re both fairly satisfied with what we got. Which was a friend with a cleft asshole. Rather than dealing with the multi-plex more than he has to, Kurt settles under the covers for a lengthy YouTube series on deserted malls. Andrew reminisces with his young manhood and going to the movies with his father and then sticking with the home invasion theme from last week, somewhat enjoys watching Keanu Reeves channel Nicolas Cage (ala The Wickerman). We look ahead to next week and determine Ken Loach will likely beat out Tom Cruise at the movies… at least for the purposes of our discussion anyway.

Cinecast Episode 484 – It’s Unfunny ‘Cause It’s True http://www.rowthree.com/2017/05/30/cinecast-episode-484-it-unfunny-cause-its-true/ http://www.rowthree.com/2017/05/30/cinecast-episode-484-it-unfunny-cause-its-true/#comments Tue, 30 May 2017 18:18:28 +0000 http://www.rowthree.com/?p=91493 The reviews for Baywatch were simply too toxic for even Andrew to stomach, and so it was a stay at home and check out the latest offerings from Netflix kind of week. Luckily Brad Pitt and Tilda Swinton step in to hopefully offer up something militarily wondrous over the Memorial Holiday weekend with War Machine. But does the material match up to the cast/performances? Also, while The Bad Batch does not hit theaters for a month or so, we managed to get into a sneak peek screening and so have a decent discussion on Ana Lily Amirpour’s sophomore effort. It’s one of those films (with empirical evidence provided herein) that requires a second watch to truly appreciate. The Watch List has a documentary double-dose, a 90s Oscar contender, home invasion meets slasher flick, the capture of Osama Bin Laden and we close it all off with some joyful misogyny courtesy of India.

We’ve come full circle. The Cinecast started with an argument on Alien and almost ten years later it continues with an argument about Alien: Covenant (SPOILERS!). Almost ninety minutes of chatting about the inner-workings of Ridley Scott’s brain and his plan for the current state of, and future of the Alien franchise. Something things to love, some things that aren’t quite as lovely. But rest assured with double the Fassbender, there is a lot to discuss here. After that, we try to rank out the order of Fincher’s filmography should be exposed to children after some talk on Zodiac. Our beloved Romancing the Stone makes another Cinecast appearance as well as Mendelsohn and Reynolds grinding through Mississippi. And hey Tarantino’s breakout hit is actually a master class in editing. We talk about the kids’ experience with “R” rated material and remember our own childhoods and being turned away from the multiplex for not having the proper ID.

Turns out the Alien franchise is a nice morning warm-up and we’re happy to share it with you. But beware of face-huggers and SPOILERS! As always, please join the conversation by leaving your own thoughts in the comment section below and again, thanks for listening!

Next up is a SPOILER review of the rainbow psychedelia that is Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. II. Kurt saw some fireworks at HotDocs; and a hobby horse revolution among other things. Andrew revisited his favorite Ted Jonathan Demme film, turned his brain off with the third xXx movie and then perused the entire history of film over the past seven days. It was a busy week for both the guys, but there’s always time to record a show – even if it is eight in the morning.

Luckily Andrew got to join in the mix this year and help with the discussion on shoe shiners in the delightful Shiners and with the glorious 78/52 in which talking heads analyze Hitchcock’s infamous shower scene in his classic and most well known film, Psycho. But before we get to all that, the multiplex has been only somewhat watchable with no one (wisely) wanting to compete with The Furious of the Seven. We find things to like about The Lost City of ZED but also a lot of issues with the film making. Next up, Anne Hathaway fights inner demons and giant robots in the surprisingly dark Colossal, which is basically a mishmash of Pacific Rim and Rachel Getting Married. Andrew’s watch list includes Oscar-bait mediocrity, a horrible (or terrific depending on which host you ask) comedy remake and Joss Whedon’s dry run at “Firefly”/Serenity. There are some tangents on casinos, senior discounts, Jonathan Demme and legalizing marijuana along the way. Classic Cinecast… We hope you enjoy listening as much as we did conversing.

Asks Charlize Theron in The Fate of the Furious, “what’s most important in life?” The answer, for those in Monterey, West Texas and international nuclear arms thieves in the arctic is of course, “Family.” Besides the box office blow-out this week, we spend a good third of this episode on the greatness of HBO’s “Big Little Lies” (watch out for the read-between-the-lines (SPOILERS!). Andrew has forsaken film for the past couple of weeks to watch a Peter Berg television series about football in West Texas… perhaps that was a mistake? Kurt on the other hand has been taking in more Canadian genre cinema, some action from our man Steven Soderbergh as well as a pseudo-doc from the 60s and second visit of Japanese Animated, but this time dubbed (not subtitled) version of Your Name (period). This and more; sans Corona.

http://www.rowthree.com/2017/04/20/cinecast-episode-480-gossip-interstitials/feed/ 11 Reviews for HBO series BIG LITTLE LIES as well as THE FATE OF THE FURIOUS. A Watch List with more television from the aughts, Canadian film, Soderbergh action and more. Thanks for listening! Despite Kurt’s protestations, there is a definite soap opera theme to today’s show and its discussions. Asks Charlize Theron in The Fate of the Furious, “what’s most important in life?” The answer, for those in Monteray, West Texas and international nuclear arms thieves in the arctic is of course, “Family.” Besides the box office blow-out this week, we spend a good third of this episode on the greatness of HBO’s “Big Little Lies” (watch out for the read-between-the-lines (SPOILERS!). Andrew has foresaken film for the past couple of weeks to watch a Peter Berg television series about football in West Texas… perhaps that was a mistake? Kurt on the other hand has been taking in more Canadian genre cinema, some action from our man Steven Soderbergh as well as a pseudo-doc from the 60s and further recap of studio ghibli’s American dubbed version of Your Name (period). This and more all throughout this week’s show; sans Corona.<br /> <br /> As always, please join the conversation by leaving your own thoughts in the comment section below and again, thanks for listening!<br /> <br /> TIME TRACKS:<br /> Opening: :00 – 5:14<br /> “Big Little Lies”: 5:15 – 1:35:43<br /> The Fate of the Furious: 1:35:45 – 2:19:09<br /> The Watch List: 2:19:10 – 3:07:21<br /> Outro: 3:07:24 – 3:10:46<br /> Closing Music: 3:08:35 – 3:11:44 RowThree.com yes 3:11:44
Cinecast Episode 479 – In Camera VOD reviews of THE VOID and Shymalan's SPLIT. Kurt has a long Watch List and we talk a bit about the Thor 3 trailer. Thanks for listening! http://www.rowthree.com/2017/04/13/cinecast-episode-479-in-camera/ http://www.rowthree.com/2017/04/13/cinecast-episode-479-in-camera/#comments Thu, 13 Apr 2017 22:32:36 +0000 http://www.rowthree.com/?p=91086 It’s Friday; welcome to The Cinecast! Yes with a holiday weekend coming up and some conflicting schedules outside of that, we’re doing an end of the week show. Ergo, no new, theatrical releases this week. But there are some pretty big titles that are eating up the bandwidth on VOD this week. First up is Clive Barkarpenter’s The Void – yeah, it doesn’t make much sense to us either, but yay practical effects. Also, M. Night Shyamalan has gone back to basics and has re-started making his brand of film, The ones the made him. That’s right, Split (spoilers!) is pretty damn good film making.

Aside from another Shyamalan tie-in, Andrew has no Watch-List this week and leaves it to Kurt to monologue for an hour about a whole slew of cinematic goodies (and one podcast). There’s a “mental health” marathon [insert joke here], some studio not-Ghibli Japanese animation, a Netflix stand-up comedy special, some Quentin Tarantino, a 1970s precursor to American Movie and much more.

We’re a pretty great show to listen to while shopping for pudding. Have a listen!

While Andrew and Kurt don’t find it particularly controversial, we do have differing ideas of what makes it good (or not so good). Andrew caught up with some indie, found-footage horror in The Dark Tapes; coming soon to tons of VOD near you! Kurt went back to the space-thriller well, putting his trust in Jake Gyllenhaal for Daniel Espinosa’s Life. In The Watch List, we’ve got 80s nuclear holocaust (beware of the anal bleeding), 40s Jewish holocaust and a celebrity “disappearance.” Check in and strap on the ear-goggles. It’s last week this morning with Kurt and Andrew. Enjoy!

Before a short Watch List however, we’ve promising Olvier Assayas for weeks now, and it’s finally here. Kristin Stewart surprises us again in Personal Shopper. Throughout The Watch List, which also includes a disaster of a DePalma film, we often tangent on the awesomeness of Netflix, the structure of television shows and buying a more expensive cup of coffee before hitting the 10% of the library that’s actually good.

And on that note, sorry not sorry for reviewing the movie that no one saw this weekend, but we couldn’t bring ourselves to spend resources on what looks to be, by most accounts, a washed out, lazy retelling of a Disney new classic. Instead, we jump through some logistical hoops and drive many miles to catch up with a little movie from Britannia titled The Sense of an Ending. It didn’t seem to fully click with most audiences and we have some theories as to why that might be. But around here it is classic Cinecast gold. From there it’s the Watch List. Kurt hit some classic Canadian cinema and caught up with Jerry Seinfeld and his many automotive guests on Comedians in Cars Getting Coffee while Andrew finished Peter Berg’s “Mark Wahlberg” trilogy and finally took the time to finish Scorsese’s epic, Silence.

Cinecast Episode 475 – Swimming Pools for Everyone http://www.rowthree.com/2017/03/13/cinecast-episode-475-swimming-pools-for-everyone/ http://www.rowthree.com/2017/03/13/cinecast-episode-475-swimming-pools-for-everyone/#comments Mon, 13 Mar 2017 18:45:30 +0000 http://www.rowthree.com/?p=90823

It was a distinct possibility that this week was going to be a war of words between your hosts over Kong: Skull Island (SPOILERS!), but no, as it turns out the movie is pretty damn good no matter what your cinematic bent. This isn’t the 25 foot, Pete Jackson Kong either. This is a 100 foot chain-swinging, spear-throwing, body crushing version. And thanks to some pretty impeccable film making, every moment is awesome.

Meanwhile, in The Watch List, Kurt got to hang with the new Xavier Dolan film, It’s Only the End of the World, checked out the much lauded documentary on race in america, I am Not Your Negro and watched Walter Hill make another run at The Warriors. Andrew watched Robert Redford and Susan Sarandon flying WWI bi-planes and then Chris Pratt and J-Law chasing the stars in Passengers (It is like a 4-hour version of the opening credits to “Star Trek: Enterprise). Some more goodies in here so check it out.

Drop the needle on a John Fogerty track and strap into the Helo for a thrill ride.

Get Out manages to shake up the mold a little bit and there is some discussion to be had there. But the adoration for Logan is pure bafflement on both sides of the table. Kurt decides the American Western tie-in is a good opportunity to revisit the classic Shane. Andrew takes the race card to a different level with American History X. Also The HBO series keep on coming as well as a Zemeckis throwback from the turn of the millennium. This is a dusty car ride of a Cinecast that, unlike Logan, has a destination and a purpose.

A Cure for Wellness is a bit divisive for your co-hosts this week though we do manage to find some middle ground on some issues. Another Scientology doc – don’t roll your eyes just yet – will be hitting theaters in a limited run over the next few weeks and Andrew and Kurt hash out the interesting film making process in My Scientology Movie more than the subject matter itself. While Kurt played catch-up with last weeks discussion on John Wick: Chapter 2, Andrew visited The Great Wall in his new favorite theater in Minneapolis.

On The Watchlist, Kurt points out that Xavier Dolan is somewhat of a kindred spirit to Pedro Almodovar while Andrew sings the praises of Julieta. And everything comes together in the annual praise of Stanley Kubrick’s anti-war comedy-horror-recruitment-tool Full Metal Jacket.

Sit back and enjoy (Sniff your fingers if you must) it’s going to be a full one.

Cinecast Episode 471 – Bronze is Better Than Silver http://www.rowthree.com/2017/02/13/cinecast-episode-471-bronze-is-better-than-silver/ http://www.rowthree.com/2017/02/13/cinecast-episode-471-bronze-is-better-than-silver/#comments Tue, 14 Feb 2017 02:07:20 +0000 http://www.rowthree.com/?p=90559

While we have two new theatrical reviews this week, the first review is mostly a Kurt monologue while with the second, it’s mostly Andrew’s mic and podium. I expect some disagreement from the peanut gallery in both cases. We talk a little bit about the upcoming summer films of 2017 and how our hope is reinvigorated for the blockbuster. Andrew is still playing some catch up with 2016 including more (yes, more!) Michael Shannon and the controversial personalities of Nate Parker and Mel Gibson. Kurt heads back to 1985 with Mickey Rourke for a couple of hours and is baffled that the bedlam on display was blocked from his memory. In a moment of fantasy speculation, we ponder the effects on the careers of Bruce Willis and Mickey Rourke had their roles been flip-flopped. We’ll be back next week with some of Godzilla’s ancestry in China and some sci-fi body horror from Gore Verbinski.

First up is a good talk on the origin and evolution of The McDonald’s Corporation with Michael Keaton in The Founder. There’s a little more to this film than at first meets the eye. The Watch List this week is actually more like an extension of the main reviews with The GIrl with All the Gifts still making the festival circuit and available in VOD in some markets as well as arguably the performance of the year in Christine – and no it’s not a 1958 Plymouth Fury. Some tangents on other culture’s movie-going habits, the weather and William Fichtner makes for an all-around delightful show!

The boys were able to catch two this week with Theodore Melfi’s Hidden Figures and Adam Driver starring in Paterson. For the former, the “Bottle Shock” effect perhaps works in the film’s favor. For the latter, by not spoiling anything, we kind of spoil it; it’ll make sense after a listen. Despite some reminiscing on the passing of one of The Cinecast’s favorite character actors in Miguel Ferrer, we are able to find the bright side and general positivity throughout the rest of the show that also includes a short Watch List of faux documentaries, a film debut from a now well-known and respected director, and… well, the mastication of feces – but at least it was on 35mm. Sit back and enjoy the bus ride!

We did it. With the help of Jim Laczkowski from The Director’s Club Podcast and Voices & Visions, Andrew and Kurt are joined by Matt Gamble for a full exploration of the year that was – maybe subconsciously we prefer to stay positive and somehow manage to avoid getting into the whole celebrity death thing. But we do look at a whole lot of trends and themes and strengths and weaknesses that encompassed 2016 as a whole. Of course we make up for our lack of list making over the year with three different top 5/10 lists including our favorite pictures of the year. Per usual, this things clock at nearly four hours. So for your convenience, we’ve chopped it up into three episodes – or, as always, if you prefer the “whole bloody affair” version, that’s available for download as well. We hope you enjoy the show.

Cinecast Episode 466 – The Maelstrom of History http://www.rowthree.com/2017/01/01/cinecast-episode-466-the-maelstrom-of-history/ http://www.rowthree.com/2017/01/01/cinecast-episode-466-the-maelstrom-of-history/#comments Sun, 01 Jan 2017 22:46:56 +0000 http://www.rowthree.com/?p=90092 Happy New Year to all the Cinecast listeners and everyone around the globe! As Princess Leia once so eloquently and succinctly put it, “hope.” While we’re not quite ready for a full recap of the year (next week!), we do spend a significant portion of this show playing catch-up on titles possibly worthy of squeaking onto that year-end list. And there’s likely no better place to start this week than the very excellent Jackie from director Pablo Larraín. While we tangent once or twice on 70mm directors, the current state of the contemporary American western, Andrew’s postulation of his reaction if he were raped, shitty episodic television or Nolan’s idea of a running gag with Tom Hardy, most of this show is spent praising a lot of neglected films from 2016 and a certain forgotten gem from 2013. Some sound issues from Andrew’s end aside, this is a great old-fashioned Cinecast with lots of movies and tangents and good vibes for the new year. Enjoy!

Andrew and Kurt are finally able to put a discussion to this picture after Kurt had seen it months ago at The TIFF. Is it quite the spectacle everyone claims? From there, we quickly pound through a Watch List that includes Mozart in the Jungle, some b-level (c-level?) sci-fi horror pictures, Wes Anderson at his “most mature” and venture back to the Satruday morning cartoon cereals. This episode is kept a little tighter this week. If you want a little more from the guys, be sure to check out The Super Ticket with the Mamo Matts in which we talk a little movie called Star Wars Rogue One.

This week, Kurt and Andrew get into Todd Solondz’ “awkward comedy” Wiener-Dog and Kurt hits the theater for Jessica Chastain in Miss Sloane… maybe wishes he hadn’t. HBO finished up its first season of “Westworld” and the boys dig through that mess of wires and mazes. As always beware of SPOILERS! For The Watch List, Andrew works on catching up on some other 2016 movies that slipped through the cracks including Tom Hanks, Michael Shannon, Seth Rogen and more. Kurt spent his time hitting the big screen versions of some older gems including Meet me in St. Louis and Tampopo. Also Michael Keaton continues to own the twilight years of his career; this time by owning a McDonald’s franchsie. Join us on this joy ride.

Matt Gamble from Where the Long Tail Ends makes his triumphant return to The Cinecast to sing the praises of Tom Ford and Hailee Steinfeld! Andrew and Kurt give Gamble a break for a moment while we head to Manchester by the Sea with Casey Affleck. The Watch List hits some big titles and small. With PT Anderson, Taika Waititi, Steven Spielberg, Paul Verhoeven, George Miller and competitive endurance tickling.

Breaking from tradition a bit, we cease to bring about any shouting matches or deliberate sign-outs (the Skype equivalent of slamming the door) upon Matt’s return, but nevertheless its a spirited conversation and it was fun getting the band back together. Hope you enjoy the show. And remember, SPOILERS!

Yet here at the Cinecast we try to remain hopeful and optimistic for the future. In movie world, the last two months of the year are looking to shape up quite nicely and it seems an understatement to say that the arrival of Arrival was fortuitous in its timing. The themes are probably exactly what the world needs right now. We discuss at length (SPOILERS!). In the Watch List, it’s not surprisingly just comfort food for the boys; i.e. movies we’ve discussed many times in the past, but felt the need to revisit over the past week.

http://www.rowthree.com/2016/11/15/cinecast-episode-462-a-miracle-to-come/feed/ 19 Review of ARRIVAL (spoilers!) as well as some old favorites for comfort in The Watch List. Thanks for listening! Yes, 2016 has been shitty from just about any angle you can look at it from. Yet here at the Cinecast we try to remain hopeful and optimistic for the future. In movie world, the last two months of the year are looking to shape up quite nicely and it seems an understatement to say that the arrival of Arrival was fortuitous in its timing. The themes are probably exactly what the world needs right now. We discuss at length. In the Watch List, it’s not surprisingly just comfort food for the boys; i.e. movies we’ve discussed many times in the past, but felt the need to revisit over the past week.<br /> As always, please join the conversation by leaving your own thoughts in the comment section below and again, thanks for listening!

Cinecast Episode 461 – Unicorn Pink http://www.rowthree.com/2016/11/07/cinecast-episode-461-unicorn-pink/ http://www.rowthree.com/2016/11/07/cinecast-episode-461-unicorn-pink/#comments Mon, 07 Nov 2016 07:13:17 +0000 http://www.rowthree.com/?p=89535 Having a week hiatus gives us double the amount of cinema to dive into the following week. So here we are with five, count ’em 5, theatrical reviews. We kick it off with a likely Oscar contender in Barry Jenkins’ Moonlight – or as we put it, what will be the dominating force at this year’s Indie Spirit Awards. Marvel kicked off it’s newest franchise potential with Benedict (x2) in Doctor Strange. Kelly Reichardt is back with another slice-of-life picture in Certain Women. The film has has heart and some stellar performances, though may be a bit unsatisfying for many. Nicolas Cage and Willem Dafoe are let off their leashes Dog Eat Dog and Kurt announces the female performance to beat this year from Rebecca Hall in Christine – no, it’s not a remake about a killer car. We also briefly touch on Rachel Weisz and Timothy spall in Denial. The Watch List includes a mini Michael Mann Marathon (MMMM), a revisit to unconventional Peter Weir, a comedy special and a few horror titles to cap off October with. While the summer was legit the worst movie-going season of our lives, this fall is shaping up to be one of the best. So hold on to your hats, the Cinecast is just getting warmed up!

Does Mascots disappoint or exceed? Lastly, while “Game of Thrones” is on break, HBO continues to churn out top-notch content. This fall it is an extended take on Michael Crichton’s “Westworld” complete with a big budget and an animatronic Micheal Wincott. Needless to say, the sprawling nature of the show, the graphic violence and sex and the interesting questions it raises about humanity, robotics, corporate America and God are really up the proverbial alley of your humble hosts. For a Watch List this week, Kurt got out to see more from The Toronto After Dark Film Festival with Kiyoshi Kurosawa’s Creepy (a Japanese version of The ‘burbs of all things!) while Andrew needed more of the western genre and opted to go top tier with Sergio Leone’s Once Upon a Time in the West.

Cinecast Episode 459 – De-Scarify http://www.rowthree.com/2016/10/17/cinecast-episode-459-de-scarify/ http://www.rowthree.com/2016/10/17/cinecast-episode-459-de-scarify/#comments Mon, 17 Oct 2016 05:05:07 +0000 http://www.rowthree.com/?p=89286 Some differences of opinions on this week’s episode. Because Gamble is not here, we are civil about it and it never comes to blows – sorry about that. We might try to step things up a notch on the tension scale for future episodes, but perhaps we will stay in casual discussion mode for a while. At any rate, this week we are reviewing Benna Fleck, Anna Kendrick, J.K. Simmons, et. al. in Gavin O’Connor’s The Accountant. Next up, we pre-cover a little bit of Toronto After Dark Film Festival with their Friday screening of The Lure.

For The Watch List, both of the guys look back a month or two at previous 2016 releases. Kurt is hopeful that there is an extended version of Miss Peregrine’s Home for Peculiar Children out there somewhere to enjoy, while Andrew is kind of wishing that Nerve never existed in the first place. As a quick side tangent, Kurt relished Thirteen Days after last week’s discussion. Andrew secretly watched most of it again too.

Kurt and Andrew get into a little bit smaller film this week with Joshua Marston’s Complete Unknown in which it’s kind of unnecessary to praise Michael Shannon at this point, but we do reckon with the fascinating filmography of one Rachel Weisz and come to agree that she’s one of the more interesting big name actresses working today. Next up, Kurt dives into the multi-plex for some Big Hollywood thriller with Emily Blunt and her train riding. Sorry folks, it’s not as exciting as it sounds. Next up, apparently The Light Between Oceans is too depressing for even our computers to listen to and so it decides to cut out some of what Kurt is saying. We get the gist though and despite divisive opinion, he manages to convince Andrew it’s worth a watch. Lastly, Andrew goes back to revisit a sequel to one of his more beloved films, Bill and Ted. This week, those crazy kids find themselves going to hell, heaven, purgatory and wouldn’t ya know it, the future! But does it work as a film in 2016? And finally, Kevin Costner makes a triumphant return to the Cinecast when we talk once again about the greatness of the Kennedy administration – or at least how it’s portrayed on screen in Thirteen Days. Hashtag better than Stone/Morris.

We’re finally wrapping up our DePalma summer retrospective with what Film Junk readers have deemed the best Brian DePalma film that ever was, the iconic Scarface. Pacino and Loggia whoop-ah it up to eleven as they take over the Miami, gangster underworld. Is that enough to warrant a three hour run time? Can they carry us all the way to the finish? Kurt and Andrew investigate. From there, we travel a few hundred clicks to the west where the deepest oil well in history blowed-up real good with Mark Wahlberg, Kurt Russell and Malkovich Malkovich Malkovich aboard! Deepwater Horizon was a good time for those of us that got to witness it years later with a large 7-Up and hot, buttered popcorn in our lap. Do you concur? Lasty, Kurt revisits the original Star Trek Motion Picture on the big screen which turned out to be quite delightful and Andrew hopes for another positive showing from Woody Allen in a revisit of Vicky Christina Barcelona.

Kurt spends a good chunk of this episode going through the best of the fest (from his perspective) and one or two things that didn’t work out quite as well as one would hope. Before we get there, we join Antoine Fuqua and his Magnificent Seven as they attempt to defeat the evil, mining industrialist, Peter Sarsgaard. It’s as close to an A-list cast as one can hope for these days, so does that pay off on the IMAX screen as it once did for the Western Blockbuster (if there ever was such a thing)? Lastly, Andrew has clearly had some time away from recording and producing to see quite a fair number of films. And breezes through a half-dozen of those before the boys call it a done deal. Regrets for not tying off the DePalma retrospective with a Scarface ribbon this week as promised; though that is in the works for next episode.

We got a new rig in the studio and it might take an episode or three to get all of the kinks worked out. So please bear with us. In the meantime, we’ve got some good stuff to talk about this week. Indie “horror” kicks it up a notch in the silent but deadly, Don’t Breathe (SPOILERS!). Next up, the tragically underseen Hell or High Water (SPOILERS!) recalls some other contemporary westerns and steals from all over the place, yet still feels surprisingly fresh. Like we say on the show, if this ain’t on our top ten list at the end of the year, get ready for a helluva final three months in the cinema for 2016. Our DePalma retrospective continues this week with the delightfully crappy, Snake Eyes. How about that one continuous take for an opening eh? And how about that hurricane performance? We finish off with Kubrick making funny out of not funny, Mel Gibson doing what Gibson does best (getting angry and blowing things up) and some joyous music making from John Carney. Next week will see more DePalma and probably some Scandinavian genre fare from Stellan Skarsgård.

The theaters had nothing good and now we’ve got so many things we can’t get to them all (alas no Pete’s Dragon or War Dogs). But we do give initial reports on Anthropoid and Hell or High Water – both to be investigated deeper on future installments of the Cinecast. For now, rest assured they are both great. But this week it’s all about Studio Laika releasing Kubo and the Two Strings… about an hour’s worth of discussion actually. We go back and forth a little bit about overall quality of the film, but we’re both in 100% agreement that all movie-goers should be opening their wallet for Laika. Starting now. Also our DePalma retrospective is winding down, but we jumped back 40+ years to see Margot Kidder and Margot Kidder star in Sisters.

http://www.rowthree.com/2016/08/22/cinecast-episode-453-neither-and-both/feed/ 10 Review of KUBO AND THE TWO STRINGS and DePalma's 1973 classic(?) SISTERS. The Watch List includes other really great theatrical releases. Thanks for listening! From nothing to everything. The theaters had nothing good and now we’ve got so many things we can’t get to them all (alas no Pete’s Dragon or War Dogs). But we do give initial reports on Anthropoid and Hell or High Water – both to be investigated deeper on future installments of the Cinecast. For now, rest assured they are both great. But this week it’s all about Studio Laika releasing Kubo and the Two Strings… about an hour’s worth of discussion actually. We go back and forth a little bit about overall quality of the film, but we’re both in 100% agreement that all movie-goers should be opening their wallet for Laika. Starting now. Also our DePalma retrospective is winding down, but we jumped back 40+ years to see Margot Kidder and Margot Kidder star in Sisters. A couple of tacked on things to The Watch List for good measure as well.<br /> As always, please join the conversation by leaving your own thoughts in the comment section below and again, thanks for listening!

Cinecast Episode 452 – Too Much Pole Vaulting http://www.rowthree.com/2016/08/16/cinecast-episode-452-too-much-pole-vaulting/ http://www.rowthree.com/2016/08/16/cinecast-episode-452-too-much-pole-vaulting/#comments Tue, 16 Aug 2016 05:05:33 +0000 http://www.rowthree.com/?p=88588

Due to sleep deprivation for both of your humble hosts, neither were able to get the flicker house this week for a “new” review. However, DePalma is always accessible and we spend a good deal of time trying to figure out what the hell he was thinking by essentially doing a more sprawling version of Carrie with THE FURY just one year after wrapping up Carrie. Both this decision and the film itself is baffling – but ripe for body explosion and pole vaulting conversation. The Watch List is kind of all over the place as well. It includes book and video game talk as well as “Michael Bay isn’t that bad” conversation and a duplicate title from 1975 that you won’t ever find. Oh yeah, and Leland Orser takes the lead!

After some infectious diseases ravaged through the third row, The Cinecast returns as healthy as ever, albeit a day late. However, as promised we’ve got a review for one of the indie darlings of the year in Hunt for the Wilderpeople from Thor 3 and What We Do in the Shadows director, Taika Waititi. The De Palma retrospective starts back up this week heading into Vietnam with Casualties of War; where there are no rules. The Watch List this week consists of time travel and spaghetti westerns and disasters and zombies and apocalypses and animated talking roses and Indian mafias and 80s slop-raunch and Werner Herzog. It will all make sense later.

Andrew and Kurt are Bourne again. And while both of them preferred the status quo (Bourne swam off into the moonlight, all was right with the amnesiac super-spy). It was 2007 when Matt Damon said he had no interest in coming back to do any more of these, but the power of Greengrass compels you! The power of Greengrass compels you!

So, here we are with the fifth film in the Bourne franchise, nearly a decade after Bourne popped up on the grid. Some of the principle cast returns, Greengrass is of course back with his shakiest of cams, and there is a whole slew of new and interesting actors added to the mix. Did the new film hit the mark or did it simply squander all the moolah and talent it had going for it? We discuss.

Then it is off to Montreal where Kurt gives the full recap all the films he caught and various sundry adventures he had during his ten-day gallop through the mega-sized genre fest. A small watch list includes Andrew finishing Netflix’ “Stranger Things” and Kurt revisiting the middle chapter of Sergio Leone’s Dollars Trilogy. It is a monster-sized show, but one we think you will enjoy. Have at it!

With Kurt still on a four week vacation, we call in our designated hitter, Ryan McNeil of The Matinee podcast to talk all about the latest in the Star Trek franchise from Justin Lin and co. Andrew turns the tables a bit on Ryan with a second round of his patented “Know Your Enemy” questions and we dive into quite a bit of television watching in The Watch List, which includes a lot of love for Netflix Studios’ “Stranger Things.” We also reminisce on Cameron Crowe, Miles Davis and even with the DePalma retrospective on hold, we dive into some of his early filmography as well, with Blow Out. Thanks so much to Ryan McNeil for riding shotgun this week and we’ll be back next week with Bourn, a Fantasia Film Festival recap and the continuing adventures of Brian DePalma directing Casualties of War.

Even with a hiccup or two in the technical side of the show, we manage to pull it off thanks to our guest Courtney Small of Cinema Axis for dropping by. Andrew and Courtney spend some time talking about what we both consider to be the best film of the year so far, and that is OJ: MADE IN AMERICA. After that, Kurt is able to get a break From the madness of Fantasia Film Festival and join us for some talk on the new GHOSTBUSTERS film from Paul Feig. The Watch List includes some other current theatrical stuff, some festival stuff and revisiting of older stuff. So, lots of stuff.

The boys get together this Independence Day weekend to evaluate the best (and worst) that 2016 has had to offer at the halfway point. Before that Top Five list though, we talk a lengthy bit of pure cinema joy with Nicholas Winding-Refn’s The Neon Demon. Mr. Halfyard was also able to catch Steven Spielberg’s The BFG in which he praises the necessity for the film’s 3D. Both of the guys go very very big (read as: lengthy) with 4-8 hour films in The Watch List. We have to put off the De Palma retro this week due to Andrew’s ineptitude. But not to fret; that will be back next week and we have plenty on our plates to dive into this weekend already. Besides that it’s all in the reflexes.

We may have to sprint for the end on this one. Time constraints is our enemy this week but we’re powering through undaunted; just like Brian DePalma filming a big-budget picture. This week we feel a little bit bad about staring at Blake Lively’s ass (a little bit) in Jaume Collet-Serra’s The Shallows. We also get to (finally!) talk about the De Palma documentary, aptly titled De Palma. This segues nicely into his 2002 film, Femme Fatale. Unlike previous sessions of our ongoing De Palma retrospective, there’s a difference of opinion on this one, who loves it and who was not in love?

On the blockbuster front, Kurt smartly stayed away, but Andrew couldn’t resist catching up with a 20-years-in-the-making sequel to see if Jeff Goldblum still has what it takes to save the planet from invading aliens. Spoiler: he does, but no one else really does. Andrew zips through a quick watch list that includes a first time watch of Harold & Maude, a light-hearted look at the abortion issue in Obvious Child and Danny Boyle forces you into a straw filled with piss… and man you get thirsty. We dip our toes into other things in this brisk, but packed, show as well. It’s not a dream.

So Pixar stepped progress back a couple of decades by bullying and belittling the mentally challenged and thinking that’s ok. But we’re getting ahead of ourselves here. First we need to exorcise the demons with railroad ties, track suits and gongs in Hong-jin Na’s fantastically bizarre The Wailing. From there, we continue with the De Palma retrospective and take a coke’d out boat ride with Al Pacino and Sean Penn in the “much wiser gangster” picture, Carlito’s Way. We’re pretty confident those subways are not actually red. The Watch List devolves into more Disney intolerance and racism with Song of the South and Finding Dory as well as some good ol’ fashioned gangster comedy. Kurt keeps it “brief” this week with a quick look into the mind of Nicolas Winding Refn’s Neon Demon which we will consider a bit more thoughtfully on next week’s show.

And the summer theatrical season continues to be of zero interest to our heroes. Luckily the De Palma retrospective is about to kick off at the TIFF Lightbox and continues all summer long. So we’ll loosely follow that schedule for the time being. Last week we reviewed De PalmaNiro in Hi, Mom and this week we keep going with the Travolta vehicle, Blow Out. From there, we move on to a little more delightfully trashy fare from William Friedkin and Tony Scott. Lastly Danny Boyle never gets enough credit for his amazingness.

Sorry, that’s our own integrity as serious journalists simply taking a stand. Across this line, YOU DO NOT… also dude, the indie scene was not looking much better according to the outside reviews. So in preparation for the upcoming documentary, De Palma, we’ve decided this week to take a look back at the very early career of the man, with Hi, Mom!, from 1970. Perhaps more interesting, this is pre-Mean Streets Robert De Niro; and man there is a lot going on in this film. Also as promised, we’ve got an all new top five list celebrating the shorter films of greatness. A small Watch List about robots and the cinematic state of A.I. rounds out this lovely little show.

Even though we all know that the third one is the worst, we traverse the murky waters of X-Men: Apocalypse – the “third one” in the slightly rebooted version of the franchise. With a busy week schedule-wise, there wasn’t much else to talk about, but Andrew threw together a quick, Memorial Day Watch List that includes very early Costner, Robert Mitchum vs a submarine and the very first film for Tom Cruise and Sean Penn. We meander a little bit around the state of the current multi-plex, but ultimately pledge to be back with an all-new Top Five list next and some other goodies. Have a seat and take a listen!

Back on track with Shane Black. The boys are able to reconvene this week with not one, but two main theatrical reviews for your spoiler pleasure. We start it off this week with Russell Crowe and Ryan Gosling in a good old fashioned buddy-cop, action/comedy The Nice Guys. It really ties the room together.

Next up is Yorgos Lanthimos’ first English language film, The Lobster. This one is a little bit more difficult to parse out. It stars one Colin Farrell and one Rachel Weiss among others; it is a twisted and comedic (deadpan?) look at love, relationships and dating in a world painted like only this particular director can portray. Kurt and Andrew attempt to hash out what it all means. Kurt revisits the glory days of Saturday morning cartoons and Andrew just wishes he had seven bowls of Captain’s Peanut Butter Crunch.

Weather conditions can always be spotted based on Kurt’s drinking habits. This week it’s a smoky IPA, so guess what’s going on outside. Ergo, guess how often we got to the theater. Luckily it’s the digital age and there are zombies to be thwarted. Bo Mikkelson’s What We Become is this week’s subject of discussion. You might think this is just another low-budget, run-of-the-mill zombie flick, but not so fast. There’s more going in this world than run shoot growl die. Susan Sarandon is back in action along with Rose Byrne and J.K. Simmons in The Meddler. Is it perfect for date night? Kurt’s got the answer. There’s time travel on the mnd as the boys grind the gears of Synchronicity. Andrew goes back to very early Alec Guiness and Alec Guiness and Alec Guiness and Alec Guiness and Alec Guiness and Alec Guiness and Alec Guniess in Kind Hearts and Coronets – a delightfully twisted comedy from the 90s. We do indulge in a little “Between Two Thrones” as well; and it felt good. Also Eyes Wide Shut; what a shock.

Cinecast Episode 439 – Reality is Highly Overrated http://www.rowthree.com/2016/05/09/cinecast-episode-439-reality-is-highly-overrated/ http://www.rowthree.com/2016/05/09/cinecast-episode-439-reality-is-highly-overrated/#comments Mon, 09 May 2016 08:30:32 +0000 http://www.rowthree.com/?p=87553 And we’re back! After some jam packed scheduling issues, feverish festivals, sleep deprivation and in-town guests, The Cinecast rises once again. Kurt has a full report on a very successful HotDocs outing and the boys take a special amount of time on our friend, Jay Cheel’s film, How to Build a Time Machine. While Kurt stumbled through Toronto’s documentary scene, Andrew was able to catch up with a bunch of late release festival fare just now hitting theaters in his neck of the woods. These include Jeremy Saulnier’s
Green Room, Tom Hiddleston in the visually striking, High-Rise and one of Kurt’s favorite films of last year, the most excellent Louder than Bombs.

We’re nixing the Game of Thrones talk this season due to scheduling and logistic issues, but that just allows a little more talk about what’s on the “big screen”. Andrew talks Patrick Wilson driving a limo that nearly gets cut in half, the production problems in a female-driven western, Kevin Bacon’s mustache, a documentary on Chris Farley and his very first viewing of a Frank Sinatra film (which was excellent!).

It’s a tight show proving once again the boys can take a couple/three weeks off and have no problem jumping right back into the proverbial saddle. As always, please join the conversation by leaving your own thoughts in the comment section below and again, thanks for listening!

Competition is the name of the game; with the ladies, with the social status, with amount of beer you can drink, with the wittiness, with the bloody knuckles and with the baseball. Or maybe this is just Linklater’s examination of how a bunch of guys hang out in the very early 1980s. Either way, we’re good. We take a step forward in time and recap the entire season six of Game of Thrones. That’s right, there are major SPOILERS to be heard. So if you have not seen all of season six (including episode ten), then maybe skip this one.

Such is the first world life in the third row. Luckily there is VOD and Kurt and Andrew can at least confer on the latest hype amongst the internet’s genre-film fanboys, The Invitation. From there, Andrew is suckered into the critical acclaim of the latest Jon Favreau joint, The Jungle Book and it really wouldn’t be a classic Cinecast without some tongue-bathing of Kevin Costner – yeah, he’s in a movie this weekend; you probably haven’t heard. Matt Gamble has all but vanished but we still managed to get into some movie experiences both theatrically and on the home screen worth mentioning. More Richard Gere is in store, Kurt heads back to the Y2K scare with Ralph Fiennes in sexy wardrobe and Angela Bassett in tight braids. Plus rep cinema VVitchy goodness in Toronto with 1983 occult gem Eyes of Fire.

Fortunately, they both find some common ground with the little-seen Eye in the Sky; a great send-off for Alan Rickman in which he gives a nice speech on the morals of the military machine… and then brings a talking doll home to his granddaughter. The film is not without some problems but it’s an engaging and dramatic thriller with a great cast and possibly the best screenplay of the year so far. Outside of the cinema, Kurt treads over alien territory for a second time with Jonathan Glazer’s Under the Skin. It’s a shame more people aren’t willing to give stuff like this a better chance. Meanwhile, Andrew stays at home to check out the WGN original series, “Underground.” Which is kind of like 12 Years a Slave meets Sofia Coppola’s Marie Antoinette directed by Guy Ritchie. And of course we’re both chomping at the bit for Game of Thrones to finally get started with season 6. All this and a few things more lie waiting within. Tune us out as we play in the background!

You and me, we got shit to talk about! Musically, lyrically, seriously, melodramatically, satiracally and emotionally. From the front lines of the third row to the windy city to state-of-the-art prison complexes, there’s a lot going on in the world of the Cinecast. Hosts are ill, hosts are hitting festivals, hosts are taking new jobs, the site is crumbling/rebuilding, limbs are lost and found; through it all the Cinecast perseveres. We’re talking Spike Lee, we’re talking Terrence Malick and we’re talking Stallone. It just doesn’t get any more legendary/blunt than that.

Hosts are ill, hosts are hitting festivals, hosts are taking new jobs, the site is crumbling/rebuilding, limbs are lost and found; through it all the Cinecast perseveres. We’re talking Spike Lee, we’re talking Terrence Malick and we’re talking Stallone. It just doesn’t get any more legendary than that.<br /> <br /> As always, please join the conversation by leaving your own thoughts in the comment section below and again, thanks for listening!

Cinecast Episode 433 – Stay for the Limb Licking http://www.rowthree.com/2016/03/17/cinecast-episode-433-c-is-for-cloverfield/ http://www.rowthree.com/2016/03/17/cinecast-episode-433-c-is-for-cloverfield/#comments Thu, 17 Mar 2016 06:27:55 +0000 http://www.rowthree.com/?p=86642 We should probably just get right to it as there is a lot to cover this week folks! First off, we have our good friend Corey Pierce of the Soundtrack of your Life podcast joining us this week to help in a (SPOILER!) discussion of the spiritual successor to Cloverfield, 10 Cloverfield Lane. After that, there are some other films in the cinemas these days so we dive into both Stephen Chow’s Mermaid and the astoundingly great movie that got yanked from US cinemas at the zero hour, The Little Prince.

The Watch List has documentaries, remakes, young adult epics, the slowest film of all time (yes, one of us shut it off after an hour), James Gillham’s (Google him) favorite film of all time, a Ben Stiller marathon, revisiting of an Oscar nominee, Wrestlemania and Thundercats in the Soprano’s TV era. If there isn’t something in there to float your proverbial boat, then you’re probably not even reading this in the first place. We do have some connection issues with our guest towards the end as Corey drifts off into the ether.

The whole gang is back together after technology, illness, work and vacations have kept us apart for so long. Interesting that it’s a Disney animated film with talking animals that brings us together. The boys decide to skip over the UK actioner and the middle east satire for some good ol’ fashioned, hare raising, adventure comedy with ZOOTOPIA. In The Watch List we do have some more theatrical things to mention as well as Kurt checking out some very timely political satire from 1992 and some not-so-very-timely political intrigue from 2016. Andrew tries to find some more cinema that resembles The VVitch as closely as possible and Matt dives into some old Otto Preminger and revisits the Academy’s choice for best picture of the year.

Before all of this we recap a little bit of Matt’s trip to the Galapagos and anticipate some sort of site with more video, images and hopefully a Galapacast. So we definitely have a lot of fun getting the band back together on this one and if you stay until the very end, there’s even some bonus content of Andrew and Kurt talking the nuance of the traditional sitcom.

Cinecast Episode 430 – The Full Dumbo http://www.rowthree.com/2016/03/03/cinecast-episode-430-the-full-dumbo/ http://www.rowthree.com/2016/03/03/cinecast-episode-430-the-full-dumbo/#comments Thu, 03 Mar 2016 20:15:24 +0000 http://www.rowthree.com/?p=86484 ApocalypseNow

Sickness and technology wreaked havoc upon the third row these past couple of weeks in terms of getting a fresh Cinecast on the air. But through their tenacity and courage, Kurt and Andrew managed to pull some strings and finally have a meeting of the minds to discuss cinema’s latest output of horror and crime. We get into the ins and outs of Robert Eggers’ The VVitch and try to nail down all of the issues that the internet vultures seem to have (or not have) with the film. Up next, we had a good time with John Hillcoat and his star-studded cast in the refreshing, Triple 9. Of course, it was Oscar week and though Kurt sat out on the telecast, both of the boys have plenty to say on the presentation and some of the awards (not) given. This discussion includes some fun “what-ifs” of the Academy’s choices over the past 30 years; inspired by Kurt’s Oscar Article.

From there we move to The Watch List in which it’s just a buzz through of the millions of films Andrew sat through while bed-ridden over the course of the last week, but we do have a fair bit to say on Kurt’s binge watching of season 2 of Steven Soderbergh’s “The Knick.” Why no one is watching and talking about this thing defies belief.

Twer the day of the big game. Which makes theaters and restaurants nearly empty. Ergo, Kurt and Andrew are very happy and indulge in the old fashioned style Cinecast complete with an hour long review of Hail, Caesar!, long discussions in each of The Watch List titles and many an unrelated tangent. The popularity of James Cameron’s Avatar continues to baffle the boys while the unpopularity of “lesser” Coen Brothers fare is equally stupefying. We ask for listeners help with casting the next Third Row Productions screenplay that’s in the works. Also Jerry Seinfeld is back with a new season of “talking shop” with comedians in (usually) cool cars. Doesn’t seem like much, but all of the fun adds up in this 3+ hour, old-school Cinecast. Listen up, we’ve got all your secret shit right here!

Was it the weather or is it the shitty inconvenient way films are released in theaters these days? Or does it depend on your geography or disposition? Or a little bit of everything? In short, we didn’t get to the “main releases” (of boats in storms or feminist westerns) this week and instead opted for some VOD experimentation with Vincent Cassell in Partisan. A solid film with problems is the verdict. The Watch List is fairly eclectic this week but a whole lotta witchin’ going on. From Winona Ryder to Vin Diesel, we cover the gamut. Andrew and Kurt also spend some time in the kitchen cooking up some spaghetti westerns before heading to Southeast Asia for a thriller and some kung-fu. Like a snake in the eagle’s shadow, there is no escape for the good the bad or the ugly; there most certainly will be blood inside Llewyn Davis.

It’s like preparing for your first day of college and having the whole world in front of you. Everything has possibility. Sure Andrew doesn’t love Enemy and Kurt’s not always on board with Pixar, but basically all of the cynicism and shit of the world is still an unknown… for now. So with that, we’re giddy with all of the possibilities 2016 has to offer us in the cinemas (and at home on the small screen). From blockbusters to indie art-house fare, to animated films to foreign docs, there’s a lot to look forward to. We also read off some listeners’ most anticipated films of the year as well. Is it the year of Keanu and Naomi or do they just tangentially fall into the conversation by pure coincidence? Either way, like I said it’s all positive.

http://www.rowthree.com/2016/01/20/cinecast-episode-425-most-anticipated-films-of-2016-or-the-naomi-theme-park-ride-of-thrills/feed/ 13 Looking forward to our most anticipated cinematic titles of 2016 as well as some listener thoughts on the matter. Thanks for listening! We always sort of like this episode because it’s all positive. It’s like preparing for your first day of college and having the whole world in front of you. Everything has possibility. Sure Andrew doesn’t love Enemy and Kurt’s not always on board with Pixar, but basically all of the cynicism and shit of the world is still an unknown… for now. So with that, we’re giddy with all of the possibilities 2016 has to offer us in the cinemas (and at home on the small screen). From blockbusters to indie art-house fare, to animated films to foreign docs, there’s a lot to look forward to. We also read off some listeners’ most anticipated films of the year as well. Is it the year of Keanu and Naomi or do they just tangentially fall into the conversation by pure coincidence? Either way, like I said it’s all positive.<br /> <br /> As always, please join the conversation by leaving your own thoughts in the comment section below and again, thanks for listening!

Cinecast Episode 424 – 2015 Year in Review and The Revenant (The Whole Bloody Affair) http://www.rowthree.com/2016/01/13/cinecast-episode-424-2015-year-in-review-and-the-revenant-the-whole-bloody-affair/ http://www.rowthree.com/2016/01/13/cinecast-episode-424-2015-year-in-review-and-the-revenant-the-whole-bloody-affair/#comments Wed, 13 Jan 2016 17:17:53 +0000 http://www.rowthree.com/?p=85798 We did it. With the help of Jim Laczkowski from The Director’s Club Podcast, we come damn close to the 5-hour mark; which I believe is the longest running show in Cinecast history (ask Jay Cheel for clarification on that fact). We hit Innaritu’s THE REVENANT and Charlie Kaufman’s ANOMALISA before getting into general thoughts on 2015 as a whole and then three top five lists from four hosts. It gets exhausting… and a little drunken. It’s 3am and I must be lonely. We hope you enjoy the show. Sheesh.

The year isn’t quite over yet for the folks in the third row. There are some pretty amazing loose ends to tie up. Before we get into Iñárritu next week, we’ve got some David O. Russell and co. to cover as well as one of the most unlikely best films of the year, The Big Short. The Watch List has Kurt seeing some “lesser” Kubrick in 70mm, Andrew watching the biggest waste of space of 2015 and Matt Gamble having his mind blown by streaming documentaries. If only you could’ve been privy to our off-air discussions, this might have been one of the best Cinecasts in history. Wait til next week when we round off the year with all of our “best of” stuff. Until then, we appreciate you dropping by and having your ear for a couple of hours in this new year, 2016.

Cinecast Episode 422 – Pimp Fur http://www.rowthree.com/2015/12/31/cinecast-episode-422-pimp-fur/ http://www.rowthree.com/2015/12/31/cinecast-episode-422-pimp-fur/#comments Thu, 31 Dec 2015 06:47:21 +0000 http://www.rowthree.com/?p=85591

Well, the Cinecast is back. Matt Gamble contributes to another epic, three hour plus discussion on the state of cinema at the end of 2015. The real magic of cinema is often displayed most notably and vibrantly with period pieces and this week’s show runs the gamut of period pictures. The Hateful Eight is out to mixed reviews and The Cinecast continues the status quo. Carol is lavishly tongue bathed and the largely unseen (or under the radar) pick this week is the VOD trash, The Lady in a Car with Sunglasses and a Gun. Before Gamble hits the proverbial road, he leaves with his initial impressions of both Trumbo and Concussion. Andrew catches up with some home grown pleasure in “Fargo” (season 1) while Kurt and co. indulge in a double helping of stop-motion animated fox films. There might be some eco-preaching shoved in there somewhere as well. No one had the stomach for the Point Break remake. You’ll have to go to a different podcast for that.

The dream has become a reality. We now live in a world in which the sequel to Return of the Jedi is actually in existence. New heroes, old Jedi. Wookies, story board decisions, gender politics. Poor casting, use of CGI vs practical, box offfice numbers. Prognostication, the generational differences, the marketing. And it’s cold outside, so put on your coat!

Yes, there’s so much to get into with the latest installment of the Star Wars saga from director J.J. Abrams so we cover as much as we can in 75 minutes. The majority of the Super Ticket cast was completely enamored and in true wonder with the spectacle; but there is a vocal minority in here and he will not be silenced. Come forth young Padawans and receive your lesson for the day from Mamo! and The Cinecast. This is The Super Ticket: Episode VII.

It’s definitely pretty and the performances are beyond masterful, but is it all enough to hold our attention and proclaim it to be a masterpiece? Or even a good film?

Next up we travel to the near future on a distant planet in which everyone speaks Russian… and is stuck in the dark ages. Andrew marvels and is simultaneously baffled by Aleksey German’s Hard to be a God. The coach stops in 1970s Canada for some Elliot Gould completionism and Keir Dullea in Paperback Hero as well as revisiting some old demons at Laika Films and Coraline. We kind of anticipate being lost in a haze of Star Wars and other Oscar-worthy films for the next couple of weeks, so sit back and enjoy this old fashioned, simple version of The Cinecast.

Since today is unofficially Star Wars week around here – and let’s be honest, pretty much the entire world wide web – we’re kicking it off with a podcast from one of our sister sites, Where the Long Tail Ends. Jimmy “The Shark” Gillham is conducting a series of interviews on Star Wars fandom. Sort of a “This is Your Life” show revolving around all things Star Wars (the movies, the books, the toys, the make-believe, the video games, the merchandise and everything else in between).

Last week, in Episode I, James interviewed Cinecast co-host Matt Gamble about his life experiences with Star Wars. This week, for Episode II, you can find yours truly talking about my life with Star Wars, which reveals a secret about Empire Strikes Back I’m not sure I’ve ever told anyone about before. If your life isn’t already over-saturated with Star Wars and your brain isn’t in overload, stick this in your ear and have a listen. Both episodes are available at the links below and you can stream my interview with the player below.

Have a listen and feel free to share your experiences and ideas about Star Wars in the comments section below. Thanks for listening and thanks to Matt Gamble for hosting the interview session with his sound equipment. Happy Star Wars week everyone. Cheers!

We completely failed at trying to do this all in one take. Can you spot the cuts? Creed and Victoria both have their moments when it comes to the long take cinema technique. Kurt and Andrew start with the latter and Matt Gamble signs on to talk the former. We dig into the Rocky legacy as a whole and more or less espouse our love for Stallone. Matt briefly (and very spoiler free) talks about his press screening of The Revenant. He’s pretty sure you’re going to like it. We conclude with more priest pedophilia this week as well as Marvel on Netflix and 86 hours(!) of reliving HBO.

While there’s all manner of great content on the boob tube, the theaters are kind of vague and scary at the moment. Mostly everything is getting strange release locations/dates, is tough to gauge quality, we’ve never heard of it or it simply just looks mediocre. Which is why we were so happy to gamble on one and get it right with Tom McCarthy’s Spotlight. For Kurt, this is end of the year award fodder; and Andrew’s not fair behind on the agreement train. Since Fincher’s Zodiac get thrown around a bit in the discussion, we use the only Watch List title this week, Se7en, as a bit of an excuse to talk even more about Spotlight. And that just about does it – sorrynotsorry for the brevity this week.

Believe it or not, after almost 40 years there are still things to talk about. After an hour of a galaxy far, far away, we dig into the main review which is Lenny Abrahamson’s ROOM starring Sean Bridgers. Room is “emotionally without direction” is a fair way to summarize our thoughts. We wrap things up with 80s cold war craze, Neil Marshall mini-marathon, disappointing Ridley Scott fare, catching up on horror movies and the western just keeps on wagon-training in 2015. All this and few other things are lurking inside this little room. Step inside!

Matt Brown, Matthew Price, Kurt Halfyard and Andrew James serve up this Super Ticket Podcast dissecting the nuance and bombast that is the 24th installment of the James Bond franchise. General consensus is positive but there is some dissension within the group; despite Matt Gamble not being able to be present and shout everyone down.

As a consequence, we review none of them. Instead, we just glide from this to that, as Moses Znaimer would say, it is flow, not show. We look at our Top 5 Danny Boyle films, and as we are wont to do, talk at length about Sunshine. A medley of Mamet, Soderbergh, Bullock, Sorkin, Halloween horror and various other bon bons are extracted from the candy box. We call these: “shoot the shit” shows and we hope you find something worthwhile in the grab-bag. Note that the show is almost 100% spoiler free this week!

Wast week we talked about all of the films coming in the next week that we’d have a tough time reviewing them all. As a consequence, we review none of them. Instead, we just from this to that with more of a flow than a show.

Almost too much. First up is Danny Boyle’s version of Steve Jobs. Despite not seeing any other iterations of his story, I think it’s safe to say we’d call this the best one. It’s been/will be a banner year for westerns in 2015 and though there are some minor quibbles with Bone Tomahawk, Andrew and Kurt mostly had fun hanging out with it – one of us more than the other. For October scares, we take a trip into the snowy Haunted House of Ted Geoghegan’s We Are Still Here. Then it is off to Africa (or is it Netflix?) with Cary Fukunaga, where Idris Alba stars in the gorgeous but brutal Beasts of No Nation. For the Watchlist, Andrew does Flyway and Kurt talks David Mamet and Oliver Stone. Whew!

Once we get to the main reviews, everything gets smoothed out. With Canadian politics out of the way, we talk a bit about the Star Wars experience as it exists in popular culture at the moment (trailers, marketing, waiting in line for tickets, etc.).

The real show starts when Andrew walks out of Crimson Peak and the boys both feel a bit disappointed by Señor Del Toro. Kurt offers context on the Gothic Romance as a genre and the misunderstood nature of its marketing and overall reception. But audience ignorance and expectation still DOES NOT excuse the modern-overkill on display in the film. The Spielberg/Coen Brother cocktail, Bridge of Spies bats slightly higher (mainly due to British stage-actor Mark Rylance, and cinematographer Janusz Kaminski) hitting a ground-rule double in the Cold War Era.

And it being the Halloween season, we’re checking out a new-ish horror film each week his month. Next week will be Ted Geoghegan’s We Are Still Here, so get ready for that. As for this week, we look at the documentary/horror The Nightmare. Pro tip: skip this movie!

Ridley Scott’s The Martian is a straightforward crowd-pleaser to be sure, but there is a wisp of metaphor still to be had in the Wadi Rum valley.

October is here and the boys have decided to hit up a different first-run (ish) horror movie each week in the Cinecast for the month. This week is an Iranian black and white, vampire film shot in California mimicking Jim Jarmusch: A Girl Walks Home Alone at Night.

The Watch List offers balcksploitation, blood and guts in the Star Wars franchise, trailers as deconstructionist/reconstructions art, journeys to the centre of the earth, and the case for Jason Bateman getting an Oscar nomination this year.

We’ve got a rare treat in store for you with episode 412: it’s under an hour. Well, as close to under an hour as we can get 30 minutes devoted to Drug Cartels & the CIA, 30 minutes devoted to domestic horror. First up, Emily Blunt learns lessons on the horrors of the international drug war first hand. We might not want to hear (or believe in) those lessons, but they are dished out with brutal precision in Denis Villaneuve’s Sicario. Next up is slow-burn horror of a slightly unconventional nature in Goodnight Mommy. The Austrian film is shot gorgeously from one scene to the next, but a dull realization sets in as the movie slogs along and a flirt with torture porn makes for some exasperating viewing to what is otherwise a pretty austere art-film. But hey, if we’re squirming in our seats, maybe that’s a good thing? Hopefully you won’t be doing much squirming (in any way) throughout this show.

We have a spoiler discussion on that, but needless to say, no one was overly pleased with Andrew for suggesting it. Kurt and Ryan attempt to wrassle TIFF to the ground after 11 days of shared screenings and food. They, in part, hash out the bests, the beasts and the worsts (or in the cast of Love 3D, the wurst) of some of the films on hand.

But wait, there is more.

Ryan and Andrew have a Watch List which includes re-evaluated Spielberg, various Afflecks and a new-ish film starring Matthew Broderick. Hunker down with your favorite blankie, take out your blue contact lenses, and settle in for the show!

Which means Andrew is halway through being jealous. Kurt is in full-on festival mode, so per usual, Ryan McNeil from The Matinee joins us for his annual mid-fest recap. We cover a bunch of his TIFF screenings as well as a couple things happening back here on the home front. Of course we keep things totally spoiler-free for the TIFF stuff.

Plus Avengers 2, Torque and the Noah Baumbach debate rages on. Thanks for listening! The Toronto International Film Festival is halfway through its course. Which means Andrew is halway through being jealous. Kurt is in full-on festival mode, so per usual, Ryan McNeil from The Matinee joins us for his annual mid-fest recap. We cover a bunch of his TIFF screenings as well as a couple things happening back here on the home front. Of course we keep things totally spoiler-free for the TIFF stuff. Andrew wants to get populist and so we talk some Avengers 2 and the amazingness that is the send-up of Fast & Furious with Joseph Kahn’s Torque.

Cinecast Episode 409 – Territorial Bubble http://www.rowthree.com/2015/09/03/cinecast-episode-409-territorial-bubble/ http://www.rowthree.com/2015/09/03/cinecast-episode-409-territorial-bubble/#comments Thu, 03 Sep 2015 21:15:06 +0000 http://www.rowthree.com/?p=83906

Talking VOD this week with Craig Zobel’s Z for Zachariah starring Margot Robbie, Chiwetel Ejiofor and Chris Pine. While not deep, there’s stuff to chew on in this minimalist tale of drama. From there, we move on to Noah Baumbach’s latest – despite evidence to the contrary, Andrew did not walk out and so was able to fairly criticize the film. We also have a capsule review for Robert Eggers’ The Witch as well as some Banksy stuff, some Tarantino stuff, some Lee Marvin stuff, some Bruce Greenwood stuff, some skate boarding stuff, some hacker stuff and some mediocre horror stuff. It’s a lot of stuff shoved into 409. She’s real fine.

And so it is that we weed through the dregs that are the end of August. So much so, that Kurt refuses to join us for the beginning of this episode in lieu of getting to hang out with Guillermo del Toro for a screening of an early Hitchcock picture (more on that later…). In Kurt’s absence, Matt and Andrew lament our experiences with Nima Nourizadeh’s American Ultra and Aleksander Bach’s piece of shit known as Hitman: Agent 47.

But what better way to rekindle the passion, than to look back over the past half decade (kinda) and embrace (or berate) each other for our top ten picks for the “best” films of the last 5+ years?

Then we feel the need to at least mention a title or two (both old and new) in the Watch List – A moral panic crime thrillers, Nazi Germany and the latest power-house performances from Emily Blunt and Benicio del Toro. So, love and FFs (you’ll have to listen to decode that acronym) all around then, folks!

Legendarily short show here folks. We like what we see, there just is not much to get into with it. First off is Easy-E, Dre and Cube lighting fires and white-washing in Straight Outta Compton. Then we get back to more “classic” styling with designer suits, 60s fashions, and a really nice bottle of Moët in Guy Ritchie’s The Man From U.N.C.L.E..

This week is a bit of a struggle. A loving struggle but it took some finagling to make happen. Still, this week there’s (spoiler) love for the surprise “hit” of the summer in Edgerton’s The Gift. There’s a bit of a disagreement with “True Detective,” but that’s going to happen as we’ve seen from week to week. Then there’s some praise for the Amy Winehouse doc, Un-reality TV and the hate for Movie 43 baffles Andrew. Also John Carpenter is seen in a whole new way on the big screen. And surprising no one, Fantastic Four (2015) is the opposite of what its title suggests.

Kurt is back from Montreal’s Fantasia Film Festival, and he might have a thing or two to say about the movies, the town and the folks at that festival. At nearly two hours we can only say brace yourself for genre-overload. But first, Matt Gamble joins Kurt & Andrew midway through the conversation on Christopher McQuarrie’s installment of the Mission Impossible franchise. Kurt loved it. Andrew liked it. Matt, well, Matt watched it. Practical stunts, exceptional set-pieces and the ass-kicking talents of Rebecca Ferguson and a cleaned up and ready for prime time Sean Harris are all on the conversational docket. While there is no full “True Detective” segment this episode (we’ll cap the remaining three off, next time) there is a full Watch List for your listening pleasure, and Matt does briefly chime in on this season of “True Detective,” along with the doc on Richard Stanley’s Island of Dr. Moreau remake disaster, and Adam Sandler’s Pixels. Andrew covers off the cult classic Wet Hot American Summer and its direct-to-Nexflix sequel. Finally we settle the Mara Rooney / Kate Mara confusion (sort of).

We’ve got a main SPOILER review with Trainwreck. There’s some dispute over who’s film this is, Apatow’s or Schumer’s. Or both? Either way, Andrew and Kurt both enjoyed the film but have differing thoughts as to why we liked it. True Detective continues to wind its way into the hearts of your humble hosts. One of us as a love potion and the other as a sickly poison. But hey, we like to like what we like. Submarine movies are inherently awesome – especially with a grizzled Sean Connery at the helm. Prison escape movies are kind of that way too. We lament our cinematic truancy of the 1950s and Rock Hudson. We follow it all up with some Kevin Bacon and some Leland Orser. And then Andrew muffs the sign off.

It’s a night time desert out there in the cinemas these days. Things are so chilly that Andrew does not even want to dwell on his Minions experience over the weekend (but rest assured, he does anyway). Also in the melange is conversation on True Detective, Telugu MEGA-EPIC Baahubali: The Beginning, the slew of trailers dropped at a certain pop cultural event, plus and a number of random tangents and what-have-yous. Not really a typical Cinecast, but things are not the trainwreck you might think (more on that bit of miscommunication in the show). Apologies for The Cranberries closing out the show, it’s an Amy Schumer thing.

Help!); looking back wistfully at the works of Dante, Soderbergh and Cameron as we discuss the latest time travel debacle, Terminator: Genisys. Onwards, TV releases today are sometimes agreeable, sometimes controversial and sometimes divisive, so say we all with “True Detective” and “Hannibal” headlining our TV talk this week. But we also go back a stretch and revisit the new classic in Alfonso Cuaron’s Children of Men as well as another Laika studio entry, aching to be a classic, The Boxtrolls. Another shorter version of The Cinecast that finds the tangents of here and there; wherever the conversation seems to feel right.

Cinecast Episode 400 – A Waterfall of Love http://www.rowthree.com/2015/06/25/cinecast-episode-400-a-waterfall-of-love/ http://www.rowthree.com/2015/06/25/cinecast-episode-400-a-waterfall-of-love/#comments Thu, 25 Jun 2015 07:21:52 +0000 http://www.rowthree.com/?p=82799

 
After 400 episodes, you might think there would be some animosity, down in the dark recesses of our subconscious. With a special mailbag segment of the show, we get to the bottom of things and it is a wellspring of love and support. Or maybe not, as some listeners think it is a good idea to draw new lines of warring factions with other podcasts (really McNeil?… really!?). Otherwise it is business as usual in the Third Row.

We debate the high water marks of Pixar, past and present, and talk about the margins and the minutiae of their latest endeavor, Inside Out.

We ponder the opening and unconventional first episode of the second season of True Detective. Will it evolve into greatness, or even be worth discussing (or even watching) for an entire season?

As always, please join the conversation by leaving your own thoughts in the comment section below and again, thanks for listening! After all these years and episodes we are grateful for any and all audience that hangs with us, week in and week out. Onwards.

http://www.rowthree.com/2015/06/25/cinecast-episode-400-a-waterfall-of-love/feed/ 33 400 Episodes everyone! Thanks for your listenership!! We review the latest Pixar film, INSIDE OUT, talk about the new season of TRUE DETECTIVE as well as opening up the mail bag to your sadistic questions and then move on to The Watch List. After 400 episodes, you’d think there would be some animosity, bitterness and anger brought upon by the faithful listeners trying to stir up some shit. But no, we’ve worked together long enough at this point that most of that is old hat and has been swept under the rug at this point – though some listeners think it’s a good idea to draw new lines of warring factions with other podcasts (really McNeil?… really!?). We still have some fun debating the merits of Pixar past and present; with almost a full hour on their latest endeavor, Inside Out. We wonder whether an entire second season of True Detective will be worth discussing (or even watching) for an entire season and revisit critical favorites and failures of years past. Everything in here is worth listening to. Matt magically gets Kurt to sign off at one point as well. It’s business as usual in the third row’s Cinecast.<br /> <br /> As always, please join the conversation by leaving your own thoughts in the comment section below and again, thanks for listening! Seriously. Aster all these years and episodes we are so grateful for all of the fans that stick with us, week in and week out. So happy to have you all along for the ride!! RowThree.com 3:04:48
Cinecast Episode 399 – You Cannot Rush a Walk of Shame http://www.rowthree.com/2015/06/18/cinecast-episode-399-you-cannot-rush-a-walk-of-shame/ http://www.rowthree.com/2015/06/18/cinecast-episode-399-you-cannot-rush-a-walk-of-shame/#comments Thu, 18 Jun 2015 06:43:51 +0000 http://www.rowthree.com/?p=82701 Welcome…To Jurassic Park World. John Hammond’s vision has finally come to fruition almost 20 years later and, shocker(!), it’s a complete and utter shit show for everyone involved. This is especially so if you are an executive assistant forced to babysit your bosses nephews, or just sitting in a cinema seat watching bad behavior in the audience mirror the bad behavior of park visitors onscreen. From undefined “villains” to unnecessary, slapdash discussions on divorce, the movie wants to have its cake and smash it in your face too. Sigh.

We say farewell to the characters of Westeros for another year as the final episode of Game of Thrones betrays a lot of what the show has stood for in terms of structure and promise. The finale is a bit of cluttered and rushed job. And yet, as the dust settles on the very controversial Season 5, there is a lot to love.

Lastly, we talk John Carpenter’s creature feature set in Antarctica, as well as a plug for another podcast about film background players. Also Netflix’s Bloodline Season 1.

On the “television” front, Netflix and Kurt hangout for about 12 hours in the compelling mess that is “Sense8” and Andrew finds enough commuting time to follow-up with Adnan and friends in the “Undisclosed” podcast.

Westeros is constantly in turmoil but there seems to be some semblance of artfulness to the direction of the show this week and we parse out this “almost got rapey” episode scene by gratifying scene. Lastly, though Corey unfortunately must bail out, Andrew and Kurt press on into very well charted waters with a Steven Soderbergh double bill and some Master and Commander. Andrew checks in with Robert Redford “when he was young” as well as two animated films of the past decade. One went from mediocre to amazing and the other could be amazing but just ends up being mediocre. It’s quite the ride in this old fashioned show with lengthy rants as well as some brief tangents.

It has finally happened. Matt Gamble shows up and forces a co-host to say enough is enough and leave the room. In these parts, it is probably the best way to handle things until cooler heads prevail – which takes a few minutes. You might think is the grotesquery on display in Fury Road or the non-necessity of the Pitch Perfect sequel becoming this weekends box-office champ. But No. Appropriately it is the Game of Thrones Season 5 Episode 6. If Beinioff and Weiss, HBO’s show-runners are looking for a reaction, they have gotten it… Things devolve into semantics, call it the “Daybreaker’s Effect.” But fear not, intrepid listener with ringing ears, we move on to happier, less controversial places created by Mike Judge, Neil Marshall and Alfred Hitchcock.

So it is off to Argentina for the Oscar nominated anthology film, Wild Tales. Game of Thrones hits the half-way mark and Kurt may have finally convinced Andrew of a) just how tedious things in Meereen have gotten, b) how much Stannis Baratheon has come into his own this season, and c) the power of a good long shot.

The watch-list creates a divide in taste on music and documentary form with Brett Morgan’s Montage of Heck. The strengths and weakness of Wes Craven’s The New Nightmare are discussed, along with a tangent on lost concept over-spill resulting from sold out movies. Don’t Look Now, but there is more Nic Roeg discussion on the Cinecast. As is the case of Kevin Costner, Shawn Levy and the race to the middle(brow). Finally, Alex Gibney’s Scientology doc, Going Clear is compared and contrasted with PTA’s The Master, for dos and don’ts in filmmaking.

Coincidentally enough, two picks from each of us are of the western genre. Who knew you could have a western documentary, but apparently you can have more than one. Bill S. Preston Esquire directed a doc and apparently the story of Kurt Cobain has not completely been told as Montage of Heck goes deeper and is quite excellent. Michael Fassbender (who opens the audio of the show) teams up with Kodi Smit-McPhee and Ben Mendelsohn in Slow West and Brit Marling defends her manor and her life in a post Civil War wasteland in The Keeping Room. All this and more inside. Grab a cup of bottomless java and have a listen!

http://www.rowthree.com/2015/04/29/cinecast-episode-391-melted/feed/ 2 Recaps for the last two episodes of GAME OF THRONES (s5, e2-3). Thanks for listening! Our “Game of Thrones” recaps are always a favorite part of the show – at least for us. Without a show last week, we have two episodes to catch up with. Episode 2: “The House of Black and White” and Episode 3: “High Sparrow.” We’re all over the Westeros map this time and many plot threads and characters are analyzed including Dr. Frankenstein, Eyebrow guy, Leprachaun man, Inigo Montoya, Ridley Scott, Davros, Fabio and Melted Danny Glover. It’s a hell of 120 minutes on television!<br /> <br /> As always, please join the conversation by leaving your own thoughts in the comment section below and again, thanks for listening!

Cinecast Episode 390 – The Wicker Man Principle http://www.rowthree.com/2015/04/28/cinecast-episode-390-the-wicker-man-principle/ http://www.rowthree.com/2015/04/28/cinecast-episode-390-the-wicker-man-principle/#comments Tue, 28 Apr 2015 17:25:08 +0000 http://www.rowthree.com/?p=82108 The plan is to have a new show every day this week. Wine, women and song tend to get in the way of our plans quite often but that’s the plan. For today’s episode, Kurt and Andrew sit down face to face and administer The Turing Test to Ex Machina (spoilers!) over a couple of pints. It’s up to you to determine if we pass or not. We kick things off with a brief conversation about the latest Star Wars trailer so that Andrew can further confuse himself and listeners as he tries to clarify things. Later this week will be a massive Watch List, Game of Thrones recaps and a Festival Episode.

http://www.rowthree.com/2015/04/28/cinecast-episode-390-the-wicker-man-principle/feed/ 3 Review for EX MACHINA with a little bit of Star Wars trailer talk at the outset. Thanks for listening!

Cinecast Episode 389 – Apple Pie Enema http://www.rowthree.com/2015/04/15/cinecast-episode-389-apple-pie-enema/ http://www.rowthree.com/2015/04/15/cinecast-episode-389-apple-pie-enema/#comments Wed, 15 Apr 2015 18:55:07 +0000 http://www.rowthree.com/?p=81855

 
Kurt and Andrew discuss the filmography of Noah Baumbach in light of his latest midlife-crisis dramedy, While We’re Young. *SPOILERS* abound, but also there are many tangents on parenting and childless relationships, raising chickens indoors, cultural appropriation and a plea to stop with the ‘can a documentary be truth’ conversation that should have ended a decade ago. Otherwise, we like the movie.

“Game of Thrones” is back, and we break down the opening episode scene by scene (*SPOILERS*). Kurt flips out about how stagnant the Mother of Dragons thread of the show has become, but otherwise, we are immensely excited to have the HBO’s most popular show back on the table for weekly discussion.

Andrew is doing the Minneapolis/St. Paul International Film Festival, and discussions on a couple of the titles, including The 100 Year Old Man Who Climbed Out The Window And Disappeared (tangents on Forrest Gump and The Curious Case of Benjamin Button) as well as a quite detailed love-in for The Clouds of Sils Maria (with lengthy tangents on the career of Olivier Assays, Juliette Binoche and Kristen Stewart).

On the Watch List, Andrew watches both Gone In Sixty Seconds movies back to back, and we tangent briefly about Death Proof and the year 1974 as it applies to car-chase movies. While we are in the 1970s, we also take a long look at Nic Roeg’s Don’t Look Now and its lasting effect on horror, sex scenes and the fracturing of space and time through editing.

Kurt also talks briefly about Ardman Studio’s Shaun The Sheep as well as the Trevor Noah documentary, You Laugh, But It’s True (with a further tangent on the current South Africa injection into American culture.)

Message: There are lots of side-tangents in this free-flowing episode of the Cinecast. As always, please join the conversation by leaving your own thoughts in the comment section below and again, thanks for listening!

This week’s episode focuses on two women with some very deep seeded problems; one physiological and one psychological. But they both love their rabbits. From Fargo in winter to the Italian Spring, we span the globe, the seasons, the real and the surreal. From character actor docs to wrestlers in tanks to mediocre comedy and horror – this is one Cinecast that truly covers the gamut of cinematic procurability and diversity.

Bread and butter. The Salvation is ours this episode, and it is all Mads Mikkelsen will get from the dawn of the oil era in the western United States. The Danish Western shot in South Africa plays as a metaphor for USA style Capitalism – a revenge movie where there will definitely be blood (even if it is all CGI) engenders a good hour of (*spoiler filled*) conversation. Our viewpoints differ, but ultimately the same conclusion is reached: the film is exploitative and pretty decent even if it is often unpleasant.

From there, The Watch List takes over as Kurt catches a few moments from the new Pixar feature and cautiously claims that they may have climbed from the pit of safe mediocrity that they have chosen to dwell in over the past few years. Andrew wanted more of Eva Green’s assets (her voice) and tries the 300 side-quel on for size. Kurt finds one of the key inspirations for Wes Anderson’s Moonrise Kingdom a sweet little puppy-love slice of life called, Melody. We close out the show with the much talked about doc-mini, “The Jinx,” which is catching headlines and turning heads, and we are not immune to the charms and the crutches of documentary film making.

http://www.rowthree.com/2015/03/25/cinecast-episode-386-singing-from-my-hymn-book/feed/ 18 THE SALVATION is up for convrersation and then THE JINX, MOONRISE KINGDOM, 300 SIDE-QUEL, flying elephants and Wes Anderson's inspiration in MELODY are all a part of this wonderful, old school show. This is a good one folks. Thanks for listening! Bread and butter. This is ours and it’s all Mads Mikkelsen will get from the dawn of the oil era in the western United States. That’s right it’s the Danish Western, The Salvation – a simple enough movie on the surface somehow drags out almost a good hour of conversation from the boys with differing viewpoints but ultimately the same conclusion: it’s decent. From there, it’s on to The Watch List as Kurt catches a few moments from the new Pixar joint and cautiously claims that they may have climbed from the bottomless hole that they had seemingly dug themselves into over the past few years. Andrew sees more of Eva Green’s mammaries (and her voice) in the 300 side-quel and Kurt sees Wes Anderson’s Moonrise Kingdom and it’s 1971 inspiration, Melody. We close out the show with the much talked about, “The Jinx,” which is catching headlines and turning cinematic heads around the webosphere.

There are a lot of rookies out there. The Cinecast ain’t one of them. We’ve seen this before. We’ve seen that before. And we’ve also seen this. And somehow, despite everything discussed today basically being re-hashes of things that have come before, we’re retain the capacity to be impressed, inspired, encouraged and offer kindness. Andrew and Kurt consider the immediate future of the Cinecast as well as the long term future and then in the spirit of re-hashing old things, bitch about pre-show cinema commercials for old time sake. If you put a dollar (or more) in our PayPal, we’ll send you a copy of the show sans the commercial bitching. In The Watch List this week: classic Dr. Who, children being burned alive, whistle blowers, Wes Anderson plot holes and Zach Braff screwing college girls. It’s all here glorious audio format if you only can believe… in a little magic.

A surprising amount of agreement this week. Yes Matt Gamble is here which always brings a certain amount of animosity and incredulity to the show. Yet there seems to be an underlining and approving theme of “less than great” to the entire show. That’s about it. There are politics at play. The music industry at odds with itself. An anti-Rom-Com. Fucked up celebrities seeing ghosts. Giant stone tablets from God and Hugh Jackman drawing a firearm during league play.

Ever walk into a typical coffee shop, order a basic cup of joe and think to yourself, “well this is a much nicer brew of java than I would have expected!”? This is how we bookend this weeks review on the show. While we rarely dive into “the news” on The Cinecast, the passing of Leonard Nimoy, the magnificent Mr. Spock himself, is an important issue that both Andrew and Kurt feel needs addressing; as does Harrison Ford in another Blade Runner movie. Meanwhile, canines take over the city in White Dog God, which the boys discuss despite Andrew’s screener conking out at the halfway mark (Kurt managed to get it all in however).

In The Watch List, Andrew tackles two more films on the IMDb 250 Project after defending the choice of using such a list for viewing fodder, while Kurt caught up with a Wong Kar-Wai influenced piece of joy in Millenium Mambo as well. Kurt also gives a brief sneak review of Jay Cheel’s (FilmJunk.com) How to Build a Time Machine based on the current work-print (fair warning). Lastly, Liam Neeson goes smokes on airplanes and Anne Hathaway is cute then sexy. All in an evening’s work here in the third row.

The one in which Kurt doesn’t realize he’s the winner of a (much controversial) bet. In exchange, buys Andrew a present for his sunken heart after The Oscar results. We dive headlong into The Academy Awards with all its ins and outs and what-have-yous with Neil Patrick Harris and the face touching and the boring music and the severe lack of montages and the… hey hey hey don’t hurt me. We do recognize Julianne Moore as a favorite however, and we praise her Oscar win with a heartfelt review of the quite good, Still Alice. The Watch List rattles on with pro wrestling, Cronenberg, submarine movies are always awesome and… Aeon Flux? Yeah.

http://www.rowthree.com/2015/02/26/cinecast-episode-382-warm-and-foreign/feed/ 13 Oscar ceremony recap as well as a review for the Julianne Moore picture, STILL ALICE. The Watch list includes WWE, early Cronenberg, boring zombie movies and young Matthew McConaughey piloting a German submarine. Thanks for listening! The one in which Kurt doesn’t realize he’s the winner of a (much controversial) bet. In exchange, buys Andrew a present for his sunken heart after The Oscar results. We dive headlong into The Academy Awards with all of the ins and outs and what-have-yous with Neil Patrick Harris and the face touching and severe lack of montages. Julianne Moore is a favorite however, and we praise her Oscar win with a heartfelt review of the actually quite good, Still Alice. The Watch list rattles on with pro wrestling, Cronenberg, submarine movies are always awesome and… Aeon Flux? Yeah.<br /> <br /> As always, please join the conversation by leaving your own thoughts in the comment section below and again, thanks for listening! RowThree.com 2:23:01
Cinecast Episode 381 – Eau de Credíts http://www.rowthree.com/2015/02/19/cinecast-episode-381-eau-de-credits/ http://www.rowthree.com/2015/02/19/cinecast-episode-381-eau-de-credits/#comments Thu, 19 Feb 2015 19:04:01 +0000 http://www.rowthree.com/?p=81092

 
With Oscar night quickly approaching, we’re kind of on our last gasps of fresh cinema to talk about for a couple of weeks; so we enjoy this one as much as we can. Kingsman starring Colin Firth is not really what we expected, so to keep Andrew and Kurt’s experiential bias at bay, special guest, 11 year-old Willem Halfyard helps put things into perspective in a full spoiler assessment of the situation. After the boy’s bedtime, things get naughty as the grown-ups go on to talk about the Fifty Shades of Grey alternative in the much loved (and unfairly dominated) The Duke of Burgundy. Later, Kurt explores more gonzo action cinema including a triple scoop helping of Bourne and the unfairly hated (but loved around here) Domino and Book of Eli. Andrew takes the violence angle in a more classical route with John Ford’s Liberty Valance and animated rabbits killing animated rabbits. Oh and Dan Hedaya always brings the A-game… as do we.

Party crasher on the set of the RowThree Cinecast arrives in studio in the form of one Sean Dwyer from Film Junk. More well-equipped to take the punches from Matt Gamble than anyone, it turns out to be a much more agreeable show than we anticipated – even with the latest Wachowski output being compared to Citizen Kane. That’s right, from the Ascension of the Jovian Gas Giant to the depths of Jude Law’s Russian sea we are a literal high and low podcast. Later in the Watch List, Sean and Andrew look deep into the “Black Mirror” while Matt and Kurt praise another successful editing venture of the great Louis C.K. – of course it doesn’t stop there. We have Steve McQueen, Spike Lee and “that one about the Nazis” on Amazon TV; among many other tid-bits of discussion. We’re happy and honored that Sean could finally make an appearance and happy to hear of the many upcoming moments of greatness still to come from the Film Junk crew.

This is one of those episodes with no new reviews (blame January, folks!) Instead Andrew & Kurt get into a lengthy discussion about re-watching films. From the starting point of “Inherent Twice” they each drop 5 titles up for discussion on how opinion/evaluation/appreciation of the film changes with multiple viewings. Then it is on to the watch list. Salty tongued Office-slash-Spy comedy, bad bad bad Nicole Kidman version of Groundhog Day, 1970s car chase drama, gender-bending time travel, and Jazz, baby, Jazz. A side tangent on whether or not to ‘read the book first’ or ‘watch the movie’ first in light of Ridley Scott’s forthcoming The Martian rounds out the show.

We’re overshadowed this week by the landmark that is Film Junk’s 500th episode and we recognize that and love it! It’s a hell of an achievement and we’re so happy for the guys, our friends, that are the undisputed, longest running, movie podcast on the internet. Also one of our guys was on the show, so there’s that. With that out of the way, it’s old-school Cinecast time. Reviews, the requisite tangents and The Watch List. It feels good to free of constraints though we are low on snacks and alcohol. Suffice it to say, this is a much more laid back version of the Cinecast; i.e. our bread and butter, our roots. We talk at length about Jessica Chastain which stems from a spoiler discussion on the very solid, A Most Violent Year. The TV review gets its foothold back into The Cinecast with Steven Soderbergh’s “The Knick” and The Watch List covers Vietnam docs like you’ve never seen as well as the brilliance that is Mike Nichols and more Chastain. Like A Most Violent Year, we’re emboldened by our competition, encouraged by our friends and emboldened by our love of Cinema – even that which we are able to dig up in the barren multiplex landscape of January.

After last week’s smackdown, we go a little more positive this week with a look forward to our top films that we most look forward to in 2015. While the camaraderie is there, it isn’t necessarily a good thing as we take down a couple of well deserved directors of yesteryear in their current theatrical outputs. The Watch List this week is short, but much more forgiving with a lot of praise and noteworthy watches. We’ll return next week with some Oscar Isaac, Steven Soderbergh and Jennifer Lopez… ok, probably not Jennifer Lopez, but perhaps some Gwynneth Paltrow and Jennifer Aniston. Sigh, maybe we’ll stick with some acclaimed, but inexplicably forgotten, television and foreign language Oscar contenders. But man is 2015 shaping up to be a helluvan orgasmic year; cinematically speaking.

We needed a referee. Seriously. And unless it’s Jesse “The Body” Ventura, we might as well not even bother. The rampages on 2014-in-film are epic: Battles are fought, won, lost and lines are drawn in the sand (Cross this line, you DO NOT…) Also, Jim Laczkowski from The Director’s Club Podcast is here to help us figure out Inherent Vice. Is it “pure shit” or “something that needs to be seen 18 times to enjoy”? And where does Matt Gamble come down within the argument? Shortly after tackling the critical darling that seems to be Selma, we look at all of the trends and highs and lows of 2014: from lack of strong female performances to computer desktop horror to the importance of ski lifts and dog revenge. Everything culminated in our annual top ten list and figuring out the odds (or lack thereof) of best picture winner.

The final Cinecast for 2014. With Kurt leaving the territory and Andrew finishing this semesters schooling, the end of December is, like much of the back half of the year, a busy one. We agree to go out on a high note with Tommy Lee Jones’ The Homesman and Mike Leigh’s Mr. Turner. With The 1984 Project also coming to its conclusion and no Matt Gamble present, it seems fitting to end the project with some Brian De Palma directing a Hitchcockian meta-porno, Body Double. We also ask for any criticism or comments on the project as a whole if you’ve got them as it may dictate whether or not we take on a similar venture later on down the road. The Watch List offers mucho Harry Potter, a bit more Nebraska high-plains and a look back at the early 90s, action-era, highlighting Steven Seagal. All in all this was an enjoyable year for us to fill your ear. Thanks to all of our listeners, friends and family who have supported us this long and we’ll see you all again in 2015. Cheers!

Harry Potter marathon begins and Steven Seagal makes and appearance. Thanks for listening! This it. The final Cinecast for 2014. With Kurt leaving the territory and Andrew finishing this semester's schooling, the end of December is a busy one. But I think we can both agree we go out on a high note with Tommy Lee Jonesi The Homesman and Mike Leigh's Mr. Turner. With 1984 project also coming to its conclusion and no Matt Gamble present, it seems fitting to end the project with some Brian De Palma directing a Hitchcockian porno dubbed Body Double. We also ask for any criticism or comments on the project as a whole if you;ve got them. It may dictate whether or not we take on a similar venture later on down the road. With The Watch List comes much Harry Potter and a look back at the early 90s action genre highlighting Steven Seagal. All in all an enjoyable show after an enjoyable year. Thanks to all of our listeners, friends and family ho have supported us this long and we'll see you all again in 2015.

Cinecast Episode 374 – Too Lazy to Cheat http://www.rowthree.com/2014/12/05/cinecast-episode-374-too-lazy-to-cheat/ http://www.rowthree.com/2014/12/05/cinecast-episode-374-too-lazy-to-cheat/#comments Fri, 05 Dec 2014 08:28:48 +0000 http://www.rowthree.com/?p=79692

We’re a bit at odds this week and the uneven release schedule sort of keeps us constantly out of flux. The good news this week is that we’ve got a guest to contradict the assininty of Andrew and Kurt with long time listener Thomas Wishloff from Sunset Rising. We weigh in on the merits of Carell’s Oscar hopes, Mark Ruffalo’s brilliance, the intricacies of Peter Weller and François Truffaut or Urban vs Altman and the discovery of the pervasiveness of stage productions. How we never got into the ins and outs of the new Star Wars trailer is a miracle (here’s a hint: Kubrick is far more fascinating); but hopefully you’ll enjoy the show anyway.
